windows 8.1 issues RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I could not have timed better even if I wanted to be among the firs users to update to 8.1.  First I done our crackliing new HP club PC than I went home on Monday and updated my old Dell Inspiron 1720 (dual boot) Win 8.

    I have find these issues:

    Web pages would not load - internet drop-outs on this version is very frequent.

    Sending print to my MFC Brother Printer would refuse and trying to save the file in stead.

    When trying to enter an IP address into address field, the Bing search function takes over and automatically trying to translate it to keyword.

    Please help when you know the answers or I may have been  to some help getting your early attention to these short comings?!

    Regards Ozistata

    P.S. I have a very sable Windows 7 running on this same HW as well as windows 8 was running great too on the other (dual) boot.
