  4. Use caution when opening email attachments
    Email attachments are a common tool for attackers because forwarding email is so simple. Users often open attachments that appear to come from someone they know or an organization they do business with. Almost any type of file can be attached to an email message, so attackers have more freedom with the types of viruses they can send. If your email program includes an option to automatically download email attachments, DON'T take it. Doing so could immediately expose your computer to any viruses included in the email attachments.

    I am starting to form a passionate hatred to the new start hover zones. They are just so small! I always end up clicking something else.

    Would also like to see a laptop hardware with touch-enabled screens, for those who want a bit of both worlds from a standard laptop and tablet.

    I just took this for a test drive a couple days ago.. It is not too bad, better then i expected. Only problem i encountered, was the Latest ATI graphics software not being compatible. Although, it was better then expected, i will be personally remaining with Windows 7 for some time, i prefer it to this OS.

    Installed on n270 netbook, runs better than win7. But apps need at least 1024×768, so mine with 600 won't let those work, but I don't even care about apps that much.

    Like all windows OS, I will wait at least a year or more so that major bugs are cleaned up and so that the OS has matured a bit. At the moment I see no reason to move to Win8. This OS is a good choice for people with AMD cpu's, especially the new line of cpu will Bulldozer architecture; The OS uses less energy (in general) and it utilizes the cpu modules as it should.

    Read 2 paragraphs and stopped, could see the obvious hate the writer has for Windows 8.

    Some just can't adjust to change nor give up their precious ancient systems because they simply lack the hardware even if they wanted to use Windows 8.

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." - People said the same thing with with Windows 7. Doesn't take someone with 100 trillion braincells to see how much Vista went down the drain. Windows 7 fixed that, Now since Windows 7 in my opinion is great how it is, Windows 8 is not a fix, It's an upgrade. Why buy comfy fur seat covers for your car, Ain't the original seat covers good enough? No. You don't need the fur covers, you can still drive that car of yours without them. To say, If you don't like the changes in Windows 8, Then by all means stick with Windows 7 or XP, No need to make it obvious to everyone you dislike it persistently.

    Either way the Windows 8 users are the winners in the end no matter how many un-educated keyboard warriors publish bashing reviews on Windows 8 or their unbiased opinions.

    Long as I'm happy with using it. Thanks.

    Did anyone notice the way Windows Defender shows that a malicious application is detected?

    Windows Defender for Windows 8 is getting better due to the improvement made like

    "1) Complete set of malware signatures and real-time detection.
    2) Protection from malware threats using a file system filter."


    So its likely a full blown AV version perhaps. As the Windows 8 version updated Windows Defender could also updated on some adjustments.
