Complete Black Screen Everywhere. Even In Safe Mode.
Hello, please help me! I just downloaded a theme from devianart, installed it, then when I clicked on it through windows settings, it said "Please Wait" for a second (default screen when themes are changing) and then just made all my active windows black. Explorer, chrome & Windows Settings was black & suddenly, screen completely turned black with just mouse pointer showing up. Can't use Start, Run or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Couldn't do ANYTHING accept holding the power button for 10 seconds and pressing shift to enter recovery menu (the one with a blue screen and 6 options like troubleshoot, continue and reset) there i ran cmd and tried to uninstall my current theme, but it just showed 3 themes - . , .. and aero. i couldn't find the custom theme name, not a single! (i had multiple downloaded but never applied) I tried system restore point, that failed (i made one before installing the theme) I also tried startup repair, didn't work. FINALLY I tried safe mode, but IT DIDN'T WORK TOO! Just my mouse cursor size increased and black screen was still there, nothing working at all (same as in normal mode). Please help me! All information is above!

Microsoft Maps Location
Anyone know if Maps or Microsoft's location services were changed recently? I moved from one side of the country to the other and built a new computer. It showed my location as my previous address much to my dismay. I turned off all location services and set my time and weather manually as well as clearing any incorrect locations from my account. We then went back to visit for a month, and after returning, I tried turning location back on and it correctly showed my new address. Starting at the beginning of this week, my location had drifted by a couple houses, and today it went back to my old address on the other side of the country, thus making my weather and time settings wrong as well. I'm hoping this isn't going to require me to take another trip just to get it to work correctly again.

Bad Computer...Bad Boy!
Computer was acting up this morning so I decided it needed to be cleansed. All went well. Everything is pretty much back in place except for two things, and I can't figure out how I did it. Previously on my Start Screen I had Sticky Notes, and now for the life of me I get figure out how I got it there. I do remember before Microsoft went and messed thing up one could drag from the taskbar to the desktop! maybe that's what I did! Anyway the second thing is I can't seem to find the flag to turn on the pin websites. Did they take that away, or if you have the flag would you mind posting it please. Thanks
