Lost programs and features after installing Windows 8
After installing 8 and going thru a refresh, I have lost several features. Office 2010 disappeared, facial recognition quit working, camera gave a problem message, etc. I did get a compatibility message for several of the programs when trying to reinstall.
Is there a solution to the compatibility problem and will Microsoft let you download office without a key

I suggest you to facial recognition device drivers and check.
What happens when you perform Refresh:
The apps that came with your PC or you installed from Windows Store will be reinstalled, but any apps you installed from other websites and DVDs will be removed. You'll find a list of the removed apps on your desktop after refreshing your PC.
Windows 8 is by far the worse of all the Windows I have ever used. I started with 3.1 and have used every release since.
When I installed Windows 8, it removed my Adobe After Effects and several other programs. Lost all my video work.
Guess what I do for work. Work with video editing, Real nice Microsoft!
I hope others read this before thinking about getting windows 8. After spending the money on the software. I am out thousand dollars of other software. All my years of work and current clients working videos.
There is no way to uninstall Windows 8, once you install it.
