Windows 8.1 mess
Well I think my system got corrupted installing the Windows 8.1 upgrade.
Basically what I have in front of me are two black monitors. The task manager shows everything is running as it should but I can't see ANYTHING except for Firefox and the Task Manager. No task bar, start button, no background image, no desktop icons, nothing!
If somebody here can't help me figure this out I guess I'll need to run a Refesh on Windows and loose all my programs.
This is one notice I've not dismissed yet from trying to get the NVIDIA options module to pop up to see if it was something there I could tweak:
The procedure entry point
?CreateInt@Value@DirectUI@@ASAPEAV12@H@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library C:WINDOWS\system32\explorerfram.dll.
Hooked up my G external drive and when I put in to the Task Manager (at least that shows too) G:\ and hit Enter I get a "Class no registered" same with a C:\ or any other attempt to get a folder of some sort to show up. What ever got corrupted I'm totally F'd and this is not OK with me. That will teach me to NOT jump the gun in the future. I don't relish spending the next two days getting my system up and running again.
Thanks allot Microsoft for another botched mess.
