Hello,

1. Ever since upgrading to 8.1 Windows will not save my SSID and password so whenever I restart the PC or just upon boot up I always have to find my SSID and enter the password again. It is also worth mentioning that 'Right Click' isn't working in the bar where you select your SSID. Below are some things I have done to no avail:


    Stopped Windows from Powering Off the Adapter
    Tried to delete current profiles through CMD but turned out I had no profiles whatsoever
    Tried to update driver but already latest version


I also tried something else involving going onto Services.msc then deleting whatever was in my profile, also, to no avail.

2. Secondly, no settings/ changes I make to my taskbar saves - so after rebooting it is all gone - this includes icons I've hidden and where I've moved certain items. (I am mentioning this in case it is linked to the WI-Fi problem)

Can someone pleaaaaaaaaaaase help me?

Hello dude,

Thank you very much for replying but I can't do system restore as the problem only began when I upgraded to Windows 8.1. It wasn't there on Windows 8.

:(

Restore it back to Windows 8 and then upgrade it back to Windows 8.1. There must be a corrupted file during the previous installation of the 8.1 which is causing this problem. Do report back after trying.
