    Windows 8 Booting and Starting Faster than Windows 7

    Still you are advocating people accepting "parasitic loads" as something insignificant. What you fail to understand is that parasitic loads may not add that much to an individual's electricity bill but on a nationwide level it does matter.

    Which Anti-Virus do You Use?

    Perhaps because MS has a poor track record when it comes to her own generic applications that are bundled with the OS: Internet Explorer, PAINT, Disk Defrag, Defender, etc.

    Will You Upgrade to Windows 8?

    Since I do not consider going to win8 as an upgrade then No I will not go to win 8. Unless you like METRO then there is nothing that 8 offers that 7 does not. Just because you have the fastest car does not mean you cannot get stuck in traffic! As an enterprise we are not considering moving away...

    The only negative comment I have to say about CNET is their reviews on the software. I have come across rave reviews on software that other sites and forums totally gave them a thumbs down and recommend to totally avoid. I have never had any malware from CNET but their opinions on software is...

    Power8 - Start menu replacer for Windows8

    I will agree with this line of thinking; An off the box EPSON driver causing BSOD is indeed a rare occasion and does not mean the whole OS is bad. My personal views regarding win 8 are known here but truth be told the above problem is not a general indication of the OS. I remember when I...

    This is my desktop. I do not use the taskbar. I prefer to use shortcuts on my desktop.

    If there is a way to TOTALLY remove METRO and have classic menus on a desktop that I am familiar with,; Then I may consider win 8. It is a must for me to have an OS that boots directly to desktop with a start button and classic menus. When I say get rid of METRO I mean exactly that. I want to...

    Small changes can and may make a big difference; If I close your nose and blindfold you and ask you to chew on a potato you will not be able to discern what you are chewing. You may say that the METRO is just the Start menu spread out but this simply baffles the mind of many users. Some...

    Thank you :) Small things make for a big difference. Believe it or not were it not for Classic Shell I would have gone back from win 7 to XP. This simple option of classic menus makes all the difference to me. I do not care about boot times and I set up my files the way I want them set...

    Thank you all for your kind words. Anyone who has a legitimate complaint is automatically labelled a TROLL? WOW! the arrogance of MS must have rubbed off into some of the fan boys here. I honestly give up; if you think you are having a hard time discussing with me then likewise I am having a...

    The lack of an intuitive environment is basically the biggest flaw of win 8. The lack of options such as classic menus, and booting to desktop. Why do you think these two are not important? I specifically stated that I searched the web for the advantages win 8 has over win 7 and basically all I...

    I searched the web for the so called advanced features of Win 8. All I found that was touted was the fast boot times. Will someone please actually give us the advantages (real ones) that win 8 has over win 7? If one insists that win 8 uses less resources then this is not an advantage per se as...

    EXACTLY! win 8 is like the SUVs; Made to satisfy the weekend warriors who want to do some off road (smooth dirt roads) and the street driver who wants to sit higher than everyone else. SUVs are a compromise and win 8 is a compromise.

    Windows 8 Booting and Starting Faster than Windows 7

    I agree about the startup! My XP is very very fast at booting (less than 1 minute) while my win 7 is slow (4 minutes). I have done all that is possible to make win 7 as fast at booting as it used to be but to no avail. Perhaps win 8 boots fast now but will slow down as more software is...

    Davehc, If you read my posts about win 7 and win 8 you will see that my only problem with both was the lack of classic menus and a horrid search. Win 8 I have used on a friend's PC and I simply cannot come to terms with the fact that it is a touch screen OS ported over to PCs. MS is a monopoly...

    OK! I guess I am in the wrong forum. The only replies I get here are basically that windows 8 is perfect and even business people are excited about it. You people simply are doing what MS does. You are polite but you always support the product to the fullest as if your life depended on it; so...

    I tried to do a search: I typed "device manager": Nothing! I typed "uninstall": Nothing! Closing applications by dragging them to the bottom? If this is not an OS strictly designed for touch screen.... Dear me! I spent 1 week at a friend's Win 8 and sorry but this OS totally lacks intuition. Has...

    Thanks for the link. Just to make things clear; I always hated Ribbon and the new start menu. I prefer the drop down menus and classic start menu. I work extremely fast with the drop down menus and my PC is configured the way I want it to be. Were I to go to win 8 then it is mandatory that I...
