Ok, so my little bro got a new lappy with windows 8. For the first two hours i spent with him just browing on it it all went fine. I've never touched win 8 before so i knew nothing aswell. We tried out different things like keybinds and shortcuts aswell as updating drivers etc.
Then we got to the part where we download the shit he wants. Most important: Google Chrome, Skype and League of legends. LoL and chrome download flawlessly. Skype, which was already installed seemed to not work. No biggie, just remove and download again, right? Now this is where the problems start.
When he tried to download skype for Win 8 it wanted him to open some confirmation email which was sent to his email. No problem, except he wrote the wrong email, one which didnt even exist. So he doesn't have acces to the email that this confirmation email has been sent to. Shit, but we can change the email its supposed to be sent to it seems from what i can read on that exact same page.
So we make a new email to be used for this and make sure to double check the name and code (even wrote it down) and then we proceed to just press continue as we follow microsofts instructions. Then we are finaly asked to make a new alias, essentially a whole new fucking email to connect with this one... Ok ok, we do so, and press continue. Now we've logged in to these two, and nothing else. Just nothing. We've just followed all of microsofts instructions and fucking nothing happened.
I make sure to write down codes and names correctly here, double checking of course.
Then i go and try to download skype again, and it still wants to use the email which isn't in our possesion. There is still an option to change the email which the fucking email is sent to, (exact same thing as we've just done) so we try it again. It makes us log on the email(s) we've just created, and once we've done so, NOTHING FUCKING HAPPENS!!!!! There is abse-fucking-lutely no help to get from the website.
It may be because im exhausted and its late, but i just cant fucking see how we're supposed to move on from this point.
Im completely lost. Win 8 had given me a good impression from the start, but if this is the kind of problems i could run into because of microsofts shit not working, im gonna slaughter a litter of kittens every full moon.
