    New to Windows 8


    I understand that I can not post my HiJackThis Report on this website.
    New to Windows 8 and need to know if I am keeping My Baby (PC) up 2 par and running smoothly

    Where do I start?
    Would like to start and see all that I have on pc outside of what I can see in the installed software. Kind of like the old days b4 Windows 8

    I heard you guys were good.
    Thank you very much

    I've been using computers my entire life, and Windows 8 confuses me too.

    Not because I haven't figured out how to use it, but because I am confused at how they could F up a perfectly stable and usable Windows 7 by slapping a pointlessly flashy and uncustomizable UI in our face and telling us "We like it".

    I am confused as to why we have to learn arcane keyboard commands to do things we could do with a GUI in Windows 7. How are excessive keyboard commands considered acceptable UI design in 2013?? I thought we were supposed to be increasing usability for end users???

    Listen up Ballmer. 97% of us are not liking windows 8. The statistics back up my statement, no matter how many paid Microsoft shills respond to this thread.

    Stop calling people shills and you might find people take you more seriously. Do you really value your own opinion so highly that you feel that it's impossible for anyone but a paid shill to like Windows 8?

    Full of yourself much?

    ^ I honestly don't care what you think.

    The numbers are on my side. It's shills who are acting as if everyone should love Windows 8. We don't.

    Ok....
    Back 2 the question at hand.. Tyvm Mystere. Please believe No offense towards the others I totally agree.
    Question:
    If I find myself using this Win 8 as I wld have Win7 and I can not seem to find where I actually put or installed items.
    outside of the search included within Win8 which is apps or settings and I do have Start 8 installed which makes it extra mind boggling. If this is a start I wld greatly accept and appreciate help

    Thank you very much

    Win8 and Spybot and Destroy


    Is there a difference in installing Spybot to Win8 -vs- Win 7?
    Is there instructions to get the best performance from this program?

    Lady8- Windows 8 isn't really that confusing once we learn a how to accomplish a few things. There's a general gist to it.

    On your start screen with tiles just do a right click▬ click All apps in lower right corner▬ scroll to the right and you will see all the Apps (Programs) on your pc.
    - Instead of clicking folders to see what's inside, they show folder name & list its contents right below it.Click image for larger version

    Have you tried open favorites▬ right clicking your list▬ near the bottom of context menu, click on Sort by name

    It's a good idea to keep Desktop tile in top left corner of Start. Then you can go to Desktop by clicking the tile -OR- pressing Enter on keyboard as long as you haven't right clicked a different tile.
