So, who decided to test the RTM waters? Wondering if anyone has ran in to a similar issue as mine.
I installed 8.1 RTM on a Desktop and it ran perfectly for a few hours. All of a sudden, it started slowing down, badly. It too a long time for windows to switch and key presses to resolve. I thought something funky was going on so I forced it off and on.
When it boot it took a long time and eventually BSOD with a "CRITICAL_ERROR".
I had to re-install the RTM which went well until boot, but everything was still slow. When I finally logged in again it wiped all my Windows.OLD folders (ie. all other folders besides personal docs where gone now).
Everything was still taking a long time to resolve. When I got to the Event Viewer, it had a bunch of warnings of things taking longer than expected. Between 20-130 seconds for some events.
Even know, things are moving sluggishly. Like there's some heavy process always working. I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or if my HDD has started to fail independent (I have a Linux dual boot and it runs fine).
So has anyone who's ventured to test RTM seen similar issues?
