    In order to run as admin create shortcut to METRO.cmd file and put shortcut in start menu under startup. Go into the shortcut's properties window and in the shortcut tab click advanced. Then click "Run As Administrator". Also you can remove the following line from the file to stop the task manager from opening:
    TM.exe >NUL

    Avira 10.0.0.561. On installation it gave a warning that there is compatible issue with windows defender but I ignored it - and it's been running fine ever since, no issue so far. :p

    If it don't open TM.exe, metro would stay disabled, becouse Windows still think that shsxs.dll is still missing

    I think is a good name, cause it's actually cheat WDP ;)

    About startup.. Sometimes is start too fast, and don't work.. You can solve it by adding line on begining
    "timeout /t 5 >NUL" (i think it should be enough)

    1. I removed the TM.exe, but I could get the Metro UI working.

    2. I added the timeout line to the top, but it still didn't run on start-up.:confused:

    I had the same issue as FaiKee, but I got this working on logon.

    I tried making a shortcut to METRO.cmd in the startup folder.
    Making sure to check the "Run as administrator" box in advanced for the shortcut.
    But with no luck; the issue was that you cant run an elevated process from the startup folder.

    So I just used the Task Scheduler to run METRO.cmd at logon (not at startup; didn't work for me).

    You need to check the "Run with highest privileges" box, on the General tab.
    When adding the trigger on the Triggers tab you have the option to delay the task for X seconds; I set 5 seconds.
    Or you can add the "timeout /t 5 >NUL" line to the file.
    Actions tab is straight forward - just browse to where you saved METRO.cmd.

    Also if your on a notebook, under Conditions tab uncheck "Start the task only if the computer is on AC power".

    Lastly, the only quirk is that it will still start with the metro ui but when you click the desktop button you will have a proper start menu.

    Finally someone dared to say the kernel truth! LOL!
    Can't imagine anyone in their right mind buying this way looking OS as a retail product. They need to do a whole lot to make it look more attractive... and usable...

    :rolleyes:

    I too can't imagine ever liking Metal music, have long hair or cloth like em.
    You may not like it, but others love it.

    The new Startscreen has only a few disadvantages over the classic, which can easily be fixed by MS if they want to.

    No Jumplists, no History, no "Universal" Search and yeah the Folder links to Documents, Computer, Libraries and the easy to access Power button, yeah while this seems to be alot of changes its not a dealbreaker at all.
    • Jumplists are only useful on your Desktop and you have still access to them via rightclicking a Program in your taskbar, so im sure they won't come back into metro
    • Search is still there (just as easy to access) but involves Clicking or Keyboard navigation cause of a missing "Search Everything" as default on top of the 3 separate searches
    • History isn't so important but it's something i would like to see being accessible on Metro.
    • You arent powering down your Computer every few minutes, but they should move it to a better place as nobody expects the Button in Settings (they could as well just add a app bar on the Startscreen itself to put some commands, currently there is no appbar for the Startscreen, only the apps you click)
    Let's wait and hope for Improvements in functionality, usability is fine besides Search which takes a second longer to use as you have to Click Apps/Settings/Files depending on what you are looking for. :cool:
