Issues with ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop on Windows 8.1

I have a fully patched version of Windows 8.1 that is not working well with ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop. ArcMap crashes on startup and ArcCatalog will start but crashes when I click on ArcToolbox or Python. Does anyone have similar problems? Solutions?

 

ArcGIS 10.3 appeared to work initially but after a week or so ArcMap and ArcCatalog failed to startup. Even the error reporter didn't function. I did a complete re-install, clearing out all settings and files, but I only succeeded in getting ArcCatalog to (partially) work. ArcMap still crashes on startup but does now generate an error report. I have feeling that a Windows 8.1 update may be the culprit.
