Hello Ulmer!
Thanks for your queetion!

I took it from the question pool as other experts didn't know how to answer. Please upgrade to Windows 8.1. its the new "Service Pack" release that fixes a lot of bugs and even may fix yours!

Please then give feedback whether it works then!

Thanks in advance!
All the best!

Being an early adopter of Windows 8, I can answer a wide-range of questions regarding this new OS.


I had to support users regarding all kinds of Windows problems for many years, often "blind" over the telephone. I work in the IT industry for many years now filling in various positions for various IT and financial and health-care related companies.

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics under the control of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in year 2003.
