With the install to windows 8 my computer is not loading champion portraits, lag spikes, fps spikes, Not loading opponents in champ select. Random Crashes

Tried the Repair Utility, twice, nothing

Uninstalled

Upon Re install only a black screen at the launcher and multiple install errors

Attempting a second re install right now

TLDR


EDIT

5th Install attempt today, got the Launcher to open after restarting twice and having the computer lock up another time. I dont even know if I can call this progress

I'm not really informed or knowledgeable but I've been told that windows 8 is only good for touchscreens.

Might as well stick with 7!

I had no issues with LoL on my windows 8 computer. The only reason I uninstalled was because whenever I would mouse down to the bottom left of my screen and right click it would tab me out of the damn game. When you right click where the "start menu" used to be a new menu appears that gives you your "run/run admin/ system info, etc" options and it kept tabbing me out in team fights.

Same thing if apps were open but I learned to not leave those open/ never use them so I didn't have that issue.

Silly guy, Don't you know every other windows version is trash? Look at the trends of time of the normal windows releases, not counting the servers and the NT or 2000 ones. Windows 3.1 Was good in it's own right because of the time we didn't have much to compare to. Windows 95, pure buggy trash, 98 was good, but still buggy. Windows ME, complete trash, Windows XP was gold, Windows vista a joke, Windows 7 awesome, Windows 8.... a smart phone OS for pc???

See the trend? Don't ever buy the next best windows, microsoft always tries to do to much and it sucks, so they make another version fixing what they screwed up.
