There is no backward move at present unless there is a restore point before the update. If there is, run Restore Point and select it.The other option is to reinstall win8 from scratch.

another way is to select system restore while in safe mode and restore to an earlier version depends on what o/s you have. Search for it in control panel or settings. While in Safe mode.

Acer L100 will only start in safemode when I press the F8 key, switches off if I try normal mode


Check your documentation; that may be a safeguard because there is a problem or corruption in Windows, so it auto-starts in safe mode so that you can troubleshoot. I am just guessing. Safe mode loads only the bare essential drivers to get Windows running, all peripherals are blocked because one of them is crashing Windows. I am just guessing, so check your manual that came with the computer. What you can do is a system restore to an earlier date; hopefully that will take care of it.

Can i keep new windows 8 pro after fresh fujitsu factory settings


Buy Windows 8 Activation Key 64bit 32bit
http://www.Genuinewindowkey.com/
of course, the best place to buy a key is ms. i purchased years from ms online store. however, this time, i'd like to share one special experience on http://www.Genuinewindowkey.com/ .
i visit my forum everyday. one day, i found a piece of recommendation from another guy. so i visited this site.
at the beginning, i'm quite skeptical at them. the price is too low.
then i sent many questions to them.
out of my expectation, they replied to me very soon. each question was answered.
at that time, i planned to try the new Windows 10 Education Product Key.
long story short, i purchased a key from them, received it and download links(32bit&64bit) in about one hour. i need 64. and, more important, the key works at the first try.
i sent much feedback to them. in one word, i'm very satisfied with this purchase, and i think, i should pass words to you.
