This Win8 is just a modded illegal version of Windows 7 Ultimate with some custom themes and apps.
Its against the forums rules to discuss about illegal versions of Windows 7

Windows 8 hasn't even reached Alpha testing. In fact, I don't think it's even reached Milestone 2 (M2) yet.

If someone has given/sold you a copy of Windows 8, then you have a lemon. Get rid of it, because you have zero idea of what malware hacks exist therin that you wouldn't want...
