    Hi,

    Since I've updated to 8.1 my laptop is taking a long to boot up and when it finally does load it's slow as hell.

    I'll then be playing Football Manager and when I hit the windows key to go back to my desktop it freezes. I've tried opening task manager and that freezes too, the only thing that functions properly is the metro screen.

    I thinking it's a compatibility issue with a program that's causing it.

    Specs:

    Dell Inspiron 7250
    Intel Core i7 3612QM @2.10GHz
    6gb RAM
    Windows 8.1 Pro

    Any help/suggestions would be awesome.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    In fact I don't think any of my programs are compatible with 8.1. All my security, graphics have been force closed, the only thing running it my bluetooth in the toolbar.
