After booting up my G6 running windows 8 on sat I have had an issue. It went through the initial boot up as if it was brand new. It then allowed me to log into my usual account but all my apps and settings had vanished. All of a sudden it flicked constantly between the app screen and the desktop. I can do nothing with it. A friend managed to set me up a new user account. it seems a thumbnail controller is constantly trying to open a new window.
