    I'm having a problem after an automatic update installed this morning, and none of the solutions I've found are working and/or possible. I purchased Windows 8 as an upgrade download version on a PC previously running Windows 7, so I don't have a physical
    boot disk. It had been running fine right up until an update installed this morning. It is now stuck in an endless repair/reboot cycle. When I try to restore to an earlier point, it does not let me select C-drive because apparently system protection is not
    enabled (news to me, I'd never disabled it). The refresh system option produces the same reboot-repair cycle, as does trying to boot in safe mode or the repair automatically function. This is incredibly frustrating, starting to wish I'd stuck with Windows
