  • This site won't let me post a print screen picture I took of the start screen...ARGH! The icons are there, but they are just solid colors, so I can't tell which icon corresponds to which app. I cannot find this problem discussed ANYWHERE, and I have been looking for several hours, so someone please help me.

    You can upload the snip to your Skydrive or a file sharing service like Rapidshare and post a link to it in your next post.   Please add as many details about the problem as you can like system specs, error messages, etc.
