Thanks BT, I have tried 7 but not 8, I can kinda do OK with 7, but when I have to get away from XP I will really be lost for a while.

I run a mac for my main machines, but have to use 7 and 8 a lot for testing (do web development) and xp sometimes when a client demands it.

8 is well, kinda interesting. I can't say I like it, and I know a lot of die hard windows users who hate it. Apparently they're getting the message that it needs some er, tweaks.

I have to say, as someone who isn't a fan of windows, 7 is probably the best windows release since windows 2000. (I liked that one) not drastically different than XP enough to make one feel unsettled. If I were a mainly windows user, I'd probably use that and ride it out until they settle down on that crazy 8 stuff

btw I noticed you saying you have 1000MBs speed internet? Where are you to get this? I have a business line that I thought was screaming and it's only 150MBs, I hadn't heard of 1000MBs. I'd love to get that speed. I'm in big city Toronto too.cI think the absolute fastest I know of is 250 and it's like 200/month here.

You got me to doing some searching, I found out you are right, we get 1Gigabit per second which is = to 1000 Megabits per second divided by 8 = 127 Megabytes per second. Man you done gone and busted my bubble. The ISP is pretty deceiving if a person don't know a MBps from a Mbps. I didn't til now, oh well, it still beats dial up.

Ha. Sorry I just had to ask because man, that is way beyond fast I was thinking damn us Canadians are really getting the short end of the stick here

Still, 100 is super super fast, considering 10 years ago high speed was commonly around 2 to 3. It's pretty hard to top out 100.

In my shop I have 150 down 10 up, and we kill it as best we can we still barely hit the wall with 5 machines ftping like demons.

After 100 the upload speeds become the real bottleneck. If you have 10 up or more you're doing really really well.

From my experience with different antivirus programs is that the best security is your on actions. I dont trust and use any of those, also hackers are too good and evade them easily.

Personally I think Malwarebytes and Windows Defender are the best
