You now have until June 10, 2014 to install the 8.1 update, after which you either have no choice and it will install automatically, or you return to Windows 8 RTM or earlier, and good luck to you if that is what you would rather do.

As little as I use anything to do with Metro, the ‘x’ at the top right corner of every app is very useful indeed. I accept that there are people in the MS forums expressing difficulties with the 8.1 upgrade AND the update, but if it was me, I would start over from 8 basic until all upgrades and updates were in place.

Maybe that is what you should do too.. Smile
