This review is from: Samsung Series 3 NP365E5C-S02US 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)Just bought this computer and I am amazed at the build quality compared to my 3 year-old Dell. The processor is great and I just downloaded a Windows 7 shell in order to fix the Windows 8 issue.

I know you, me, and others out there are trying to get used to the fact that the windows start button is missing.
I am a PC technician of nearly 20 yrs. and running. I bring this up to backup my credentials when speaking of suggestions and "How To" type scenarios.
First, before I make my suggestion on how to 100% overcome the lack of a start button that all of us have been accustomed to, I need to first add that I do not work for the company I am getting ready to mention.
I use the product is all and I now am ok with using Windows 8.
The suggestion is....for a mere $4.95 over at stardock.com....they have a small footprint add-on called..."Start8"...All you do is quickly setup a quick account, which I have done back in 2007. Just a quick note on Stardock. They are a very safe website to do business with, again as I have for over 5 yrs now and running.
O.K....after purchasing the product aforementioned above, download it....no adware, malware, spyware, viruses, etc. at all. I am very picky on sites by the way that I feel confident in.
Once downloaded, double click the file you just downloaded....it will then obviously go through and install, very quickly might I add...then, literally all you do when finished installing is...there are 3 big blocks to click on, plus, a small link below that states if you already have a serial code to click here.....go ahead and do that...then enter your email address you signed up with, password you created on Stardock.com, then copy and paste the serial number in the space provided...then...waa laa....it's as if you still have Windows 7, and also, it lets you configure the app, which is to me an added bonus.
I hope this helps you out some as it has helped my wife and I and our friends and family.
A Merry Christmas to you and your family as well. Have fun.

+1 for using Windows 7 Explorer shell with Windows 8. After a month, no issues at all.
