First, this may not be the appropriate forum section for this, but there isn't a software forum (didn't find any at least), and other sections seems even less appropriate. Besides, there are already a couple Win8 threads here.
Ok, here it goes:
A few days ago I accepted Microsoft's discount deal, and upgraded from Win7 to Win8 Pro. My rig passed the checks and the upgrade went fine. But then I discovered the problems (further down). I then installed all the 20+ updates, checked all drivers and installed what was needed. This did not fix the problem.
In the new start menu (the apps page), there are a lot of miniwindows, I think they're called tiles in English. Most of these seems to be working as intended here, there are weather details, sport news, travel images etc scrolling. But clicking on most of them, opens a white or colored window that may or may not have a small rotating thingy suggesting it's working with something, but nothing more happens. Nothing at all.
A few more detailed examples:
The mail tile proves I'm correctly logged into my mircrosoft/hotmail account, because parts of my new mails are scrolling there. Clicking on it opens a a window with a big mail icon, and that rotating icon i mentioned. But that's it, nothing more happens.
Clicking on internet explorer from the start menu opens a IE window with black borders, with a google bar on top and the address field at the bottom. When browsing the internet from here, most pages will not even load at all. But when I right-clicked IE from the start menu, and chose to attach it to the task bar, and then starting it from there, I got the "classic" looking IE window, and everything works perfectly from there. For example, going to my hotmail account works here, though it doesn't from the start window.
Whenever I start my pc, the "choose browser" windows appears. But it only leads to a grey page with nothing at all.
Anyone go any idea what the problem may be?
I've tried searching around for a solution, but so far no luck at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
