    One thing that is missing from WDP is the ability to play DVDs. It might be that this is one of the features that is currently disabled. To overcome this, I tried the latest trial versions of the 2 most popular DVD playback packages, WinDVD and PowerDVD.

    WinDVD Corel WinDVD 2010 - Installs, but won't run.

    PowerDVD CyberLink PowerDVD 2011

    Thanks, Dwarf.
    I hadn't tried that yet so I was unaware that one couldn't play DVDs out of the box with the DP.

    The Windows Defender installed by default with Win 8 is actually MSE renamed. You do not need to install MSE anymore
    Defender and MSE use the same process (MsMpEng.exe). When you install MSE (which you still have to do yourself), Defender is being replaced by MSE.

    I saved the download to my desktop. Then opened it with run as administrator. Once installed, I restarted my computer. Make sure you have the right version. I also had to disable user control for this to work.

    But Defender covers pretty much everything MSE covers in terms of malware.
