    Hello everyone. I am running Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. I installed this over my Windows 7 Home Premium system. My computer is an HP p6874 with a 64bit AMD processor.

    I have a keyboard (HP pn: 505060-371). It has volume control buttons built in. These buttons worked to control the volume in Windows 8, but only for a few weeks and then they quit working. Also, I can't change my account to a local account and I can't purchase apps from the store. The error code I get is 0x80004005 and "Your purchase couldn't be completed. Something happened and your purchase couldn't be completed" respectively.
    Lastly, Windows 8 also keeps making it where I can't see the window contents while I drag a window. When I drag a window it keeps the window where it was and lets me drag the grey outline to where I want to put the window.

    I reinstalled Windows 8 after these things happened and everything worked great, until now. It has only been 2 or 3 weeks since I reinstalled Windows 8 and I don't really want to do it again.

    Thank you for the help.

    Windows 8 Seems to suck at the moment, it will take time to work out the kinks i suppose....
    Like vista, it still is terrible but they fixed some stuff after time.
