    Hi Pal,


    This is certainly a virus attack. I highly recommend you that you should SCAN YOUR PC with a good Antivirus/Antimalware program and then follow the easy steps to accomplish your job. :

    * DELETE all temporary files and folders. (type %temp%, temp and prefetch in the RUN)
    * Remove any unnecessary files from Desktop and my Documents
    * Uninstall unnecessary software programs.
    * Clear COOKIES
    * clear up old system restore points.
    * turn off memory dump files.
    * use the disk clean up tool.
    * use NTFS compression to compress a complete drive partition.


    You should also EMPTY THE RECYCLE BIN.


    Thanks and Regards..!!

    Hi,
    From the your explanation, i think you have install your Window 8 in the system which is the just only the min. requirement for Window 8..
    Following are the Window 8 Min. requirement:

    • 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
    • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch

      to get the best performance from the Window 8 you should have your system greater than the min. requirement..
      After upgrading your system you will not face this problem any more...

    Hope you have got your answer...

    Re: Windows 8 release preview hangs after installation

    Hi,
    Having hell of a problem i suppose, for which i have a few suggestions you can follow.There can be a number of reasons behind your ordeal which i am trying to explain.

    1. Do you have the registered version of Windows installed? Assuming you have the original copy i think your installation was disturbed and the installation is incomplete. There may be a few important files damaged which gives you trouble.
    try to uninstall first then reinstall Windows8.
    2. Virus is another reason for the trouble, install a reliable anti virus in your system and keep it updated, keep scanning regularly.
    3. Try to have more than minimum suggested RAM and HDD space as these resource hungry softwares are always in hunt for more and more memory space to operate smoothly. HDD space is used by the processor to use as temporary memory these days.
    4. If you have installed any new TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) program recently or any driver for any recent attached hardware , it also can make trouble as those third party softwares sometimes infringes with the mother softwares.
    5. Always keep your system clean from Temporary files, Cookies, Downloaded files, Unused files etc. They create space crunch and unnecessary burden to memory, thus giving OS a bad time.
    Thank you.

    >> Then, make sure that you have the minimum System Requirements required for installing Windows 8.
    >> If you don't have those requirements, you will face many problems after and may be during Installation.

    i think you installed a pirated version of windows 8 those may not genuine. try downloading a fresh genuine copy of windows 8 from the website windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/download - United States
    check for your system configuration also. even if the system configuration is very less then it will hangs.

    HELLO GUEST

    Do you have USB 3.0 host controllers enabled in the BIOS.
    If you have, then please try to disable it to see whether you can resolve the issue.

    For more information, you can refer to:
