Can I make it go away? I've tried using it all day and I'm at the screen smashing point.

This happened to my pc a few days ago. I have since heard of others it has happened to. I'm afraid I don't know if you can make it go away, sorry.

I have a microsoft surface pro 3 and it is all kinds of messed up since it installed itself. It's not just that stuff is different, it's not flipping working.

Did you click on the 'x' to close the page? Microsoft have been bastard and changed it so that x-ing to exit actually downloads Windows 10. You would still need to install it though🙄

I deliberately installed it when it first came out. It screwed up Outlook, which I need for work so badly, I uninsulated it and reverted back.

Good LUCK!

My issues so far:

- desktop is now the first page you come to. Before it was the apps page and desktop was an app. This meant I could remove it from my kids accounts so they only had access to the apps I gave them. Now they have internet access. It feels like they've turned my tablet into a laptop.

- The keypad has gone from silent to sounding like popping popcorn.

- My bluetooth thingy keeps saying it's not connected and only reconnects when I restart the tablet.

- When I watch something on full screen the touch screen doesn't work so the only way to exit is restart.

- The screen doesn't get smaller when I open the keypad so the keypad covers the bottom half of the screen. This means I'm having to type blind if it's something I can't scroll up screen eg facebook messaging.

And that's just for today.

Method 3 on the link below makes it go away. Thank heavens for that.
