    I just run the last one,.............../restorehealth. Takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Fixes corruption in the component store, I believe. You need an internet connection to do this.

    Drew,
    New machines sold with Win 8 do not have the pro edition installed so it is quickly becoming common.
