    you do not need to install antivirus on windows 8, recommending the installation of Microsoft Security Essentials is terrible advice. Straight from Microsoft:
    "Windows 8 comes with Windows Defender, which has been improved in Windows 8 to provide the same level of malware protection as Microsoft Security Essentials.

    You do not need to install Microsoft Security Essentials and it will not work with Windows 8."

    1st thing to do is to downgrade to windows 7 or better yet, install Ubuntu. Beware though because this can be tricky with some laptops.

    Derp Anthony^ Be more specific. Things that are designed to be safe aren't always safe >>... e.g. WINDOWS IS THE VIRUS!...

  • Anthony Says:

    Any particular reason why, with all the possible attacks, a scripting language designed to be safe (JavaScript), is singled out here? It looks as if you're playing to the paranoia of 20 years ago.
