i highly suggest you to clean the system partition after you finish all Windows updates:

1- backup again after Windows 8.1 all updates are done
2- open "Control Panel" > Administrative Tools > Disk Clean Up > select "OS (C)" in fact your system partition > let the tool do its checking > click "Clean Up System Files" > select all > let the tool do its job (it will took long time, since it will delete the "Windows.old" huge file (the previous Windows 8 system files replaced by Windows 8.1 ) and all the backup of Windows Update.
3- if all went fine , reboot , Windows will finish the cleaning during shutdown, long too.
4- install Ccleaner and clean the leftovers.
5- do a backup

now you can install your "must-live-with" softwares. then do a backup again ;)

It says that "A system image backup is in progress. Please wait while it completes" even though I'm not creating a system image backup. :confused: What should I do now?

I used windows backup without any problems in windows 8, but now in windows 8.1, I can't run backup (even I clicked it a lot of times) UAC is not even appearing. Is this a bug? How to get rid of this?

A lot of people told you stay away from it, I see it everyday on microsoft supports forum, to many problem, especially when doing upgrade.
as for the backup it's 2 different things, you probably made an image of the sys, this option is to backup files, folder

Windows 8 is faster , yes it is, unless you have hardware made for XP or vista; just check hybrid boot; this feature own Windows 7 just by itself.
Windows 8 use less resources, yes it is, no Aero crap fluffy effects. also no need to tweak all services to gain resources.
Windows 8 more reliable? for me yes, never got sudden BSODs like Windows 7

Windows 8 is almost fully optimized out of the box, unlike Windows 7 where i have to spent 45mn to tweak everything to make it faster and more responsive.

i will never go back to Windows 7 even if you pay me !
Just couldn't agree more.:)

yes if you just surf safely, don't use dodgy softwares , it is all you need; windows security are implemented at kernel level ; one level deeper than any other security softs. now i don't say that using other security softs is useless but unlike with Windows 7 , you don't need them anymore.

i personally use some of them because i have to ( i closed-beta test them ) if not i will just stick with what Windows 8 offers.



you are welcome, you see if you do safely step by step , it is not so hard ;)



most of the people that bash Windows 8, never really used it or don't have any clue of what an OS should do. They just focus on their "used-to-use- useless-crap-fluffy-designed-toys".
Cheers @Umbra Polaris.:) This was nice to read as I do like my 'security..implemented at kernel level; one deeper than any other security software',:cool: so although I've neither fallen upon my own sword (so to speak) in bashing Windows 8,;) neither have I realized that I'd become accustomed to such "..useless-crap-fluffy-designed-toys"!:rolleyes::D

This is just for backup your files not the system. You can ignore it.
Thank goodness, now your young apprentice can begin his further training!

@Umbra Polaris Yeah, I just unticked "windows backup" in the action center settings. :) I think it's a bug. Thanks a lot!
@King Mellow, you've completed running a marathon OS installation in the best imaginable way coming through to it's finish successfully after following the wise guidance of MT's Senators of Greece (unlike the fate Rome's Caesar met in the IDES of March) whom will rather continue watching your back instead.;) Well done, O King of Mellow!:)
