    MS is upgrading me to 8.1 pro with WMC. The bill was originally £80+ vat but, for an extra £33 I can have 1 year warranty and free three monthly access and check system for errors etc and, if nec, fix them. It also includes Microsoft Security (£33 on its own) for life. Not sure what program that is but ok by me. Win 8.1 pro is £99.99 on its own.

    Interesting point is that the company Arvato GmbH is nothing at all to do with microsoft and take money and send out pirate copies. My copy of win 8 was such. How I arrived at this was unknown but could have been a fake microsoft url.

    Um, are you sure your talking to the real Microsoft now? Microsoft Security Essentials, which is now Windows Defender in Windows 8 is free and always has been? What is the "Microsoft Security (£33 on its own) for life." ?
