I have similar problems by almost walking into doors that don't auto open

I've came across another of Greg Shultz's articles which may interest you in giving you the old F8 menu (scroll down the page) so that you can choose Repair your Computer as you would probably have in XP.

This would also give you such things as Last Known Good Config and using the Repair your Computer option, would lead you to the Startup Repair which may negate the need to factory reset - don't know what Win 8's refresh does.

Thanks for the Link Cantrel. I have now got myself an A4 notebook for all my laptop notes.
