There is probably a support group for you.
If there isn't one locally, you could start one? "Win8.1 users Anonymous" perhaps?

You could have a 12 step plan:
1) We admitted we were powerless over out computer - that our PC had become unmanageable.
2) Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3) Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Gates as we understood Him.
4) Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5) Admitted to Gates, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6) Were entirely ready to have Gates remove all these defects of character.
7) Humbly asked Him to send us Win7.
8) Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9) Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10) Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11) Sought through email and forum to improve our conscious contact with Gates as we understood Him, Googling only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12) Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to Win 8 users and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
(based on "The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous" and not intended to belittle or trivialize addiction to Win8 or alcohol)
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
