    windows 8 is really cool & a million times(zillion) better than any Apple OS
    its user friendly & comfortable to use

    its booting & startup is AWESOME & its a killer at a cheap price but im only facing this freezing problem ,allgoes fine suddenly x-----x

    i tried defrag , ccleaner,registry hacks,startup repair,have light applications but still it is the only issue,

    anyone having the same prob ?

    I tried it out at the store ... It seemed to do that if you swap between several applications back and forth ... windows has never been good with recovering memory and now that it take up even more memory well you'll probably want as much ram as you can possible get and the fastest processor speed possible ... this this per chance an upgrade? Make sure it's not actually in the middle of installing updates or something .. have you check to see if there are updates for your bios

    Ya right so awesome, so cool so much better than Apple stuff yet it freezes constantly and you cant browse the Internet without the latest update of your antivirus.

    I don't like anything to do with Apple (the first Mac computers have left a lasting hatred for anything to do with Apple). But, I must admit, that Windows 8 is quite bad. In comparison, I much rather prefer Windows 7.

    See, I would have helped out. I know a few useful windows tricks.vhowever, you had to make it a flame war, didn't you? I mean, this was a simple tech problem, and you irrelevantly bring in the Microsoft vs. Apple debate? Really? I'm sure such a superior and user friendly system should be easy to fix then, right? Have fun.

    My only issue is the inability to adjust my brightness on my laptop. I've tried every way.
    It was fixed for a while by "refreshing" which deleted everything. But now it came back.

    But 2000 and XP take too long to launch a browser after bootup.

    Porn! Now!

    Is it me or is it every second version onfwindose that worked...
    3.11 worked well
    95 worked.
    98 worked well...still in use in some areas....
    ME/2000...yawn (putting these together, 2000 more an upgrade to NT4)
    XP rocked
    Vista putrid
    7 works well
    8 seems to have issues with multitasking and GUI as pc.

    All refresh does is uninstall and loose information....and you spend all the time fixing and not enjoying the internet...then they give you updates that start the problem all over again.

    Medjai : i dont know the philosophy of flame or things, its not what I posted my thread on ,everyone is free to review & share what they feel "when they invest some money"
    i wasted my money buying apple & its my consumer right to express it & im free to say it & if u think it the otherway its ur decision ,at much im not dithered by all the internet lingos ,i post my expressions on RJ coz i sometimes feel i need to let out in our Mid-eastern dictatorship & censorship , let me be ,no flames or swords accepted

    My $0.02

    Sometimes the drivers for the chipset, or the disk controllers can do some crazy stuff, like the freezing issue you were describing.

    If you have an intel-based pc, always making sure that you have the latest version of the chipset and rapid-storage-technology drivers can quite-often alleviate these goofy issues.
