I used the Plug to Easy Transfer between my old Windows 7 laptop and my new Window 8 one. I did nothing special, used defaults, and the transfer took place. Everythign seemed fine, except it changed my Desktop to the exact same as my old Gateway laptop. I think it transfered too completely - files and settings - and my Windows 8 seems to be going crazy now. Began with screwy video, then developed weird problem after problem - started self typing so I can’t even type in my password to login anymore because it keeps adding random characters while I’m typing. My touch screen functions work sporadically.
I don’t have a backup disk, but do I need to re-format my hard drive and go back to scratch?
