Windows 8

I decided to upgrade my laptop to Windows 8 today. Everything was going fairly well this afternoon. There were lots of updates to install and updates to the HP software. Then tragedy struck. I tried using HP’s assistant to solve a missing hardware issue, I believe it installed older software that was not compatible. There were memory errors during the install then after rebooting, my fingerprint swipe, which was working, stopped working. I foolishly tried to restore to a previous restore point which was way out of date. Now I cannot login. Time for an image restore, which I made prior to the update, and start over again tomorrow. 😦
