Install windows 7. If it is just a software issue try a virtual machine. windows 8 isn't that bad take time to get to know it. desktop is a lot like 7. Update to 8.1 and get a semi start button (right click) or windows button and x to get a start menu.

Windows is hard to get used to.
It might take some time time but its a lot faster than windows 7.
Here are some thing you might try before downgrading to Windows 7
Create toolbars on homepage

Create the menu tab on your homepage open webpage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list Managed add ons
Toolbar extensions Search providers and Accelerators you haveif don't need any of them you can disable or remove them.

Right click in the bottom toolbar (Bottom of Screen) select the toolbars option then Desktop this will add >> arrows in the bottom toolbar select the arrows you will see a list with control panelwhich has another list of all control panel items.
Downgrading to windows 7

When Windows 8 was released, Microsoft touted its advanced features, including a fast bootup time and the capability to use the same operating system for desktops, laptops and tablets.

At the same time, many of the design choices in Windows 8 were controversial and, as with most new operating systems, hardware driver support was initially spotty.

To support customers that prefer Windows 7, Microsoft created a cost-free downgrade path for some versions of Windows 8. If you aren't eligible a free downgrade, though, you have other options. Windows 8 Pro Downgrades
If you have the business-oriented edition of Windows 8, Windows 8 Professional, you have the right to downgrade to Windows 7 Professional, but you will need to have your own Windows 7 CD and product key to do this.

Doing the downgrade consists of installing the older operating system on the computer and then calling Microsoft for permission to activate Windows 7 in the event that the product key had already been used.

There is no charge to do this, but completing the process can be time consuming.

Windows 8 Consumer Downgrades
Consumer versions of Windows 8 don't come with free downgrade rights.
To legally downgrade to Windows 7, you will need to have both a Windows 7 CD and a product license that will allow you to install the operating system.

In other words, you'll have to pay for both operating systems.
If you are looking to buy a new computer and don't want Windows 8, consider buying one that still ships with Windows 7 preinstalled.

Simulating Windows 7
If you don't want to deal with the hassle or potential expense of downgrading, you can re create much of the Windows 7 user interface on Windows 8.

One option is to add third-party software programs like Start8, Classic Shell or StartIsBack to access the Start menu.

You can also tweak your system's settings to automatically boot to your desktop instead of the Windows 8 Start screen while also replacing some of the built-in applications that interface with the Start screen with other ones that are desktop friendly.

Why Not Downgrade
If you need to use a piece of unsupported hardware, you might not have the option of using Windows 8 at all.

As Windows 8 matures, however, more hardware drivers are becoming available.
Given that Windows 8 offers a powerful search tool as well as fast bootup times, it has some real advantages over Windows 7.

If you can either learn how to use the interface or are willing to modify it to better suit your preferences, staying with Windows 8 may be a better option for you.

When i go onto ie i get a home page of nation zoom how do i get rid of it?


You will need to change your homepage in your Internet Settings. I don't use IE anymore so thats as much as i can help. I do believe if you have Windows 7, you can use the search bar on the start menu and search Internet Settings.

I downloaded windows 8 preview and lost windows 7, how do I get rid of w-8 and get my w 7 back barry


If you have windows 8 CP/RP installed in your computer and you want to have windows 7 back, the only way is to make a clean install (format) of windows 7. Because Microsoft Windows does not allow downgrading to windows 7 from windows 8.

So grab a Windows 7 DVD or USB drive and make a format.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

How can i delete my task manager ?


I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! )

Partical incompatability-messed up whole computer-freezes,internet messed up-wont let me delete program out-message keeps appearing!!!


I, myself have had nothing but problems when I downloaded Internet Explorer 9! I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! ). For some reason, once you start using Google Chrome browser, it is best to simply avoid Internet Explorer! I use Google Chrome & love it! I also use Mozilla Firefox! Sometimes we must use Windows IE since it is the browser which came with the computer. But I would avoid IE 9 and just not download it again once you are rid of it! No matter how much Windows/Microsoft tells you that you need to download it! Hope you have your computer running efficiently again! arjay8tch (Richard Holt)
