    [at first of all, sorry about my grammar... english isnt my mother language]

    i have
    windows developer preview 64X since he came out on miicrosoft downloads..
    it was all fine and good, with out bugs and annoying glitches... till now.

    every time, when i restart my pc, suddenly the metro menu starting to glitch, and reopened.. like 4 times.
    while the metro menu glitching every 5 sec, the mouse getting slower, and the menu stuck.

    all this strange [FONT=arial, sans-serif]behavior takes like half minute.[/FONT]

    [FONT=arial, sans-serif]and then, after the menu glitching like crazy, there is two options that coming after this bug:[/FONT]
    [FONT=arial, sans-serif]1- metro menu glitch---->going by himself to desktop... and the desktop is black with the windows toolbar stuck.. and you cant do nothing.. you only can move your mouse or go to the task manger...
    (i tried to solve it by exit the explorer.exe task, and open it again... cause its seems like windows explorer problem... but i tried, its doesnt work.)
    all what i can do, its just restart the pc and hope for the option 2
    2-
    [/FONT]metro menu glitch----> stay on the metro, all fine.. i can keep using the system.
    [FONT=arial, sans-serif]
    the chances i get option 2, is 1\6 restarts..

    :(
    what can i do?

    Reinstall the operating system. That'll fix it.

    i know its beta (even a developer version), but i not complain about the problem, i want to know how to fix it.... and especially without reinstall it.
    i choose to keep this operating system, cause of private reasons.. (not private, but they to many, so i dont want to share those reasons..)
    and i prefer this system on WIN7, so i using WDP as a gamer\networking\design\massages sytem... cause i see huge difference between WIN7 and WDP.
    i know its still alpha, but its better than windows 7 for me.
    and all of my time, i didnt saw any bugs. (maybe the log of and the shutdown doesnt working corrent,, but anyway... still fine for me.)

    so you understand? =]

    if someone know to fix this problem via cmd or edit register\system files.. or any way that available, will be glad to hear it.

    Then you must reinstall WDP again. Just backup your data before reinstalling.

    neh... i have many works\games\programs installed on this system. (i know its alpha! but its better then win7 for game)
    i prefer to launch this system like this.

    another question, umm.. how can i lock the windows's toolbar\taskbar start? (when i click on start, it open the metro menu... that toolbar.)
    cause, when i play games, i suddenly pressing on the start button (somehow in the game) and it minimize the game and entering to the metro menu, and its really annoying.
    some of the game get a crash of this.
    i did right click and selected the "lock the taskbar", and it not helping.

    how can i fix it? i mean, how can i unlock the start menu-toolbar? (please, dont tell me to install another system, i have my own reasons to keep this alpha running... just tell me how to lock it.)

    You said that this happens after a time and you use WDP for gaming, working,etc. Check for recent updates, installations that can corrupt, damage the OS. Return to a previous state. Maybe this can be an misfunction on some Video device...

    For your second question, I have no answer...
