I've had occasion to try and reload WIN8. All went well and I also downloaded WIN8 Media centre pack. I then decided to install updates (94). At the end, and hours later, I got a message that there were errors in the updates. The system then reverted the updates. Now, I get a message that Internet Explorer is not working and of course I can't do anything.

I guess I will have to redo this all again unless the DVD I burnt from an ISO can be used to repair. Any suggestions please?

Might be the ISO or the media you used to burn the ISO thats the prob. Where did the ISO come from?

The ISO was the Microsoft original el cheapo offering and installed perfectly well the first time I used it.

Burn it to another DVD. If that doesnt work, buy another brand of blank DVD

I started again and this time all of the updates installed. I am at present downloading Win 8.1. I did run into trouble to start with as I was using my old Win7 user a/c. I needed to setup a Microsoft a/c to get into the store so I could start the download.
