So, I'm not allowed an opinion, especially if it's contrary to yours? I'm being accused of mudslinging yet what is it you dissenters are doing? If it will make you feel better I'm unsubscribing from this thread.

You assume you are being singled out when the post below your previous post was a comment about the thread itself.

Not that you'll even see this since you have unsubscribed.

stand down!

my comment was not directed at a certain individual but in general to the type negative comments from both sides that windows 8 threads seem to generate.
in fact in the last three years i have never put individuals on the ignore list until recently and that was because of the H8ers.

what exactly makes me a dissenter, arent we all dissenters if we all have opposing opinions.
anyhow im more of a muggletonian

Same here. All rigs already running 8, my main laptop and desktop 8.1 Preview (which by the way is in my opinion the best Windows ever), having Seven only on Hyper-V virtual machines (each edition except Starter).

Will upgrade as soon as possible.

Same here , I love the speed and simplicity of 8 over win7 which I adored from day1 the only problem I have with win8 is not being able to rum MSE on it

mse is already included in the os pebbly,
type windows defender in the search field and open the result, the only difference is that there is no right click on a file and "scan with mse" in the context menu any longer,
the idea is that anything gets picked up by the OS so no need for individual file scan.
though you can still get it to perform quick /full scans at the click of a button or a scedule

i have it pinned to my taskbar with some others

Kathryn, as far as I know Julian is absolutely right: Windows Defender on Seven is not the same as on Eight; on eight it really is more a complete AV solution.

I have used Eight almost exclusively from last summer, 8.1 on my two main rigs since end of June and never used any other AV than Windows 8 Defender.

Yeah, the fact that the Defender is not the same on Seven and Eight could be more clearly told by Microsoft. Wikipedia says it quite clearly, though:

Quote:
Windows Defender, formerly known as Microsoft AntiSpyware, is a software product that helps combat malware. Windows Defender was initially an antispyware program; it is included with Windows Vista and Windows 7 and is available as a free download for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. In Windows 8, however, it is upgraded to an antivirus program.
