No doubt that win8 pro upgrade or live or office could theoretically cause this. I don't think video games or fraps or ventrilo could. I'm just saying that I can 100% guarantee that no other program that advertises as being able to bypass Windows 8 Metro / turn off hot corners could have caused this...

Also, I do not know if the behavior exhibited before or after upgrading to pro or adding office 2013. I only checked after these things were done.

I've tried the startup thing but good advice on the safe mode and services. I'll try. Shall I do it with classic shell uninstalled or just set to not disable the hot corners and not bypass the windows start screen

There's definitely other odd behaviors that's existing because of this problem. It was difficult to realize they were odd behaviors, because I'm not as familiar with Windows 8. For instance, one thing I know is happening is that for instance in the MAPS app... if I move the mouse to the TOP of the s...

The whole reason being I never installed any other metro bypasser as the culprit is because this was the first software listed in the CNET article, and it did everything I needed at the time. I never installed an alternate until AFTER I had already ran into this problem and I only installed alternat...

I had the non-pro Windows 8 64 bit version. Not sure if there's multiples besides that it was just Windows 8 standard I guess. When I upgraded I went through Microsoft's website to add the pro features.

I also had installed windows live essentials and microsoft office 2013 home ??? just trying to throw everything out there. I can't seem to find anything in my registry that should be doing this. Some sites mention RPEnabled in the developer preview version, but that key is not in my registry so it s...

I will say that I did upgrade to Windows 8 Pro... after I had classic shell installed, I purchased the downloadable copy of the upgrade to Pro. That's the only thing I could add that would mess with Windows 8.

The charm bar only works if I press Win+C not from hot corners. I think that the start screen may be coming up briefly, but it's hard to tell because it is very fast... yes I'm certain I've seen it briefly drawing on the screen before going away. Logging off and back on does not fix it. There has be...

I've noticed some very odd behavior from playing around a bit. If I go in and set my monitors to only display on 1 monitor and turn off the other monitor completely and then sign out and sign back in I can get a brief (one time use only) moment where my charm bar will activate using the hot corner. ...

Unfortunately the new user has the same problem. After creating the new user and then logging in as that user it comes up with the Windows 8 screen saying "Hi" and preparing windows 8 and so on and once that is done the Windows 8 start screen flashes very briefly before it goes straight to...

I don't know if this helps or not, but I find the behavior odd that if I REinstall classic shell even after I verified that the classic shell program files folder is gone... after it's reinstalled all the settings are still the same as before I had last uninstalled it... even the settings that I had...

Additional detailed information for help. Computer is brand new with little in way of installation. I believe classic shell was one of if not the very first thing installed on it. I noticed the lack of functionality of the radio buttons to turn back "on" the hot corners before I ever tried...

Oh ALSO... the hot corners behave the same way. Once they're gone they can never be turned back on again. Uninstalling classic shell does nothing either.

I am experiencing the problem he was having. Nothing seems to fix it and I can 100% guarantee that it's no other program causing it as well. The check box no longer works to not skip and uninstalling doesn't do anything. I do not want to have to do a clean reinstall of Windows 8; is there another wa...
