It looks like a site to get someone from XP to Windows 8 jumping over Windows 7.
They need a life.

I know its incredible how dumb people are.

It's not like it says it every bleeping time you turn it on. /S

I have had people tell me they run windows 2013 or windows 2010 or windows 2003.

There talking about office, but they think thats there operating system for some stupid reason.

For some reason this sounds like a legit issue ,My Dad for instance can make his own Video DVD'S and so fourth but when it comes to windows updates he is a lost sheep

To be honest and fair i don't know all of windows 7 functions either but when it comes time you can bet your bottom dollar i will find a way to use it

I'm sure win-7 is very much like x-p,
Strip the Libraries and aero away and you get x-p with I suppose many security improvements,
So in a way we are all on x-p on steroids
Funny link just says we aren't using x-p but doesn't say what we are using = typical Microsoft still leaving an empty space,
Can't use the link to confirm an operating system

Lol, I'm using 4.4.2. Also, good luck finding drivers for Windows 8 those that are upgrading.

Actually, I was pleasantly surprised at the driver support in Win 8/8.1. When I upgraded a 5 yr old netbook from XP Home to Win 8.1 Pro, drivers for all built-in devices except for the sd card reader were there on first bootup. After a couple of days, I received a system flag providing me with a link to the missing driver. I just needed to click on it and it was installed.

Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
