    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.
    But Defender covers pretty much everything MSE covers in terms of malware.
    I don't know that. I have not analysed the code. But I suppose when they developed MSE, they based it on the defender code.

    There seems to be some confusion on whether Defender 6.2 does the same job as MSE 2. I think this is due to the fact Defender leaves no icon in the notification tray.

    Deluge 1.3.3 - It works and downloads just fine. But it wouldn't let me use magnet links or download the torrent file from URL. You have to download the torrent via a web browser and then go to Deluge, and open it from inside Deluge.

    gtk2 runtime 2.16.6 - Required for Deluge 1.3.3

    Daemon Tools - installs but will not mount virtual drive.

    Hi there
    Daemon tools is now REDUNDANT since W8 mounts virtual drives -- just right mouse click the iso file and choose MOUNT.

    VMWARE Workstation rel 8 works on the 32 bit version of W8 but not the 64 bit version (currently although am re-installing again).

    cheers

    VMWARE WORKSTATION Rel8 WORKs on W8 x-86 (32 bit version) but fails on X-64 bit version.

    Hi there

    Update on vmware rel 8 and vmware player R4 on W8 x-64. (Note these work perfectly on W8 x-86).

    Apply the fix I've posted in the virtualisation section on this Forum -- then you can add these to the list of working programs.

    Cheers
