comment How to install Windows 7 back on my PC?

comment IE 11 installed but still running IE8
@Reogo - do you have hidden updates? Go to updates and click restore hidden updates and see if IE11 is among them. If so, I will edit my answer. Also, where do you launch the browser? From a desktop shortcut?

comment Fresh SSD - High Power On Count when putting hibernate mode (Win8.1)
