Windows 8.1

since we up-graded from Windows 8 to 8.1, we`ve lost access to the xbox games. Typical USA marketing tactic.

This started happening after I updated my Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 last night.  I have tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the Microsoft Solitaire Collection

How can we expose the blackguards who did this?

In looking further into whether all drivers were up to date I found that when I updated to Windows 8.1 the Nvidia Video Driver rolled back to June 2012  I update to the current Driver dated 6/21/2013.  the Microsoft Solitaire Collection now loades and runs.   I also uninstalled and reinstalled the latest Microsoft Solitaire collection from the Store.  

This same thing happened on my wife's Dell laptop. Once I updated the Nvidia drivers to the latest and re-installed the Microsoft Solitaire Collection from the Windows Store, it was working again.
