Many of your problems can be caused by the upgrade.[/quote]

Yeah, I'm forced to be doing that now, exactly. Also I called the computer's customer service for some advice, they say so far no computer manufacturers acknowledged this new Windows 8, no tech support because they found similar issues, too. Therefore they can't help me with the graphics driver, only suggesting me I should get Win 7 back.
You know I'm no adept of computer techniques. What driver did you choose for 8? NVIDIA? What version? So like you said, you had to run some tests for the driver? I'm gonna format C and try it again. But most of my problems did occur as well during the last days of my Windows 7, compatibility issue between K lite and Win7codecs, stuttering using Win7codecs, thumbnail mess-up, except for the thing bothers me most -- the gridy stuff.
I really appreciate your help.
I know this probably shouldn't be an appropriate topic here.
I want to ask you guys to check your screen display very carefully again: I installed an older NVIDIA version and the grid lines seem to have gone, but it didn't. The size of each "cell" just becomes smaller, but still bigger than a pixel. The grid is barely noticeable, but if you look really closely, stare at it for a while, you'd see.
I mean that's my case. Try a black background and look deeper, I can't notice the cells in the taskbar, or browser's address bar, either. I chose "blush" for Windows color. Can't find them on desktop, either, even though it's a dark picture. But it seemingly gets a little more obvious at the awkward-blue Start page.

You guys are going too technical here for me... I know this'll sound a little fishy... To "ttugates", so you don't use any graphic driver? Merely "graphic cards" (say, something actual, tangible hardware, a graphic card is?) without any "driver" can get a computer work, too? Where did you find such graphic "cards"? Or if you are using some sort of NVIDIA driver, what's the version? Because it sure has got me a lot of display problems. Thanks.
EDIT by Shark007 - I moved this post here because YOUR issues are not 'ttugates' issues.

I have only ATI grafik cards!
I have with ATI Driver 8.960 no problems and can your own NVIDIA issues not resolve.
I use in Windows 8 CP x86 W7CP 3.5.4 with PowerDVD 12-Decoder (settings see here)
It would also possible to use W7CP and X64C 3.5.4 with FFDshow-DXVA or LAV decoder settings in Windows 7 or 8 x64, only with W8CP 1.0.X without FFDshow I have problems.
I have installed Windows 8 CP x86 to a blank hard drive and the ATI video card was running with the Windows 8 CP Driver very well, with the preview driver (8.960), but even better!

Your explorer is ALWAYS open, as this provides the desctop. YOu can kill it and you have the blank screen you described. You don't need to reboot your computer, just press CTRL ALT DEL, Taskmanager -->new task--> type "explorer.exe". This brings back your desktop.
I have observed the same behaviour; perhaps background thumbnailing is blocking explorer.exe
Or Windows 8 just "freezes" an exisiting Graph when closing an application. Anyway, no idea, but it definitely worth the effort fo Shark007 to look into it.

Why so blunt? Others migh have this behaviour as well but keep quite as it is not bothering them? For example me. I suspect some component of your package ist still being used by explorer.exe, perhaps during the thumbnailing process, which provokes Windows to sugest to kill the explorer. I had this in 6 out of 8 cases when uninstalling your package under win 8, but just restart the explorer.exe

because the problem is the Nvidia drivers.
As stated in THIS POST, allowing Windows update to install the driver is the fix.
My forum is not to troubleshoot OS and driver issues - it is for the support of my codecs.

I have ATI and the same problem with driver 8.93.7 RC10. I still think it has something to do with Windows 8 which is not releasing something of your component. Anyway, I do not cosider this a problem as it does not bother me restarting explorer upon uninstall: the latter will not happen soon as my system is running perfect now (with Win 7 I had always the infamous ATI/AMD live TV 720p video corruption error)
RE: Windows 8 OS Problems - HurlW - 03-09-2012 03:04 AM
Forgive me for again being off the topic. A quick question: How do you format C? DBAN? They say by installing the system installation disc and pausing half-way to choose "format" you cannot really format. That true?
RE: Windows 8 OS Problems - HD-False - 03-09-2012 07:05 AM
I set up the HHD before installing one (partitions and drives), so get that no problems installing.
The installation routine of Windows 8 but would also offer the opportunity to drive C: to format (repair of the system, only the DOS prompt ...).
OT: Why does the Google translation above is not right or not always?
