    Windows 8.1 RTM Scams Now Spreading via YouTube

    Windows 8.1 RTM has already been leaked, so it’s no surprise that many users are actually looking for download links to give a try to the operating system before its official release date.

    Cybercriminals around the world have seen this as a major opportunity, so many posted clips on YouTube in an attempt to get users to all kinds of malicious websites.

    The trick is that users download a password-protected archive said to contain an activator, a serial, or the original ISO itself, so they are instead directed to a number of websites that monetize traffic and clicks.

    Funny news...

    Really though I'm treating Windows 8.1 RTM as a second preview or final beta for testing purposes before official release in October to see weather it's good enough to switch over from Windows 7 since I went back to 7 after buying and upgrading to Windows 8 upon it's release last year.

    Can you show a screen-shot of it ?


    Already moved back to Win 7, but here's a perfect example: Microsoft to Fix Blurry Text Bug in Windows 8.1 RTM

    Its slightly worse on my display.
    It looks like, that I'm not effected.

    Sounds like my experience but I eventually went back to 8.0 when I found drivers for my hardware. Now before I upgrade to 8.1 I will check to see if the manufacturer is supplying 8.1 drivers or maybe saying the 8.0 drivers will work. Sadly some manufacturers will stop software development as soon as their hardware has been sold. I may understand that, but I don't like that. I guess the same hold true for programs. I may still revert my laptop back to Windows 7 because keyboard features do not work with Windows 8 and they probably never will.

    Everyone that upgrades to a new operating system needs to decide if it is worth the all $$$ for possible new hardware & software. I will upgrade to 8.1 but my office will stick with Windows 7 until they need a new machine. Considering the boss still uses a Vista laptop converted to XP that won't happen anytime soon.

    Does this mean that the REAL version of 8.1 is being torrented like mad? I'll have to find out.

    Depends on what your definition or REAL is? The RTM version that the OEM manufacturers received is what is being leaked. The way I read things is that, Microsoft is still going update and patch it to fix bugs etc. What actually gets released on October 18 may be an updated patched version of that. I really don't know what to believe anymore. I have a TechNet subscription so I'm content to wait until it shows up there. I'll have access to TechNet keys for it too if I need them and not have to mess with install keys and a separate activation key etc. I had issues with the preview release so that's another reason for me to wait as long as I can. Better drivers may be out then.

    At the moment we don't know how we will receive the updates for the actual / leaked RTM, but as the OEM's got this Version to be able to put Hardware with it installed on it into a shop etc, I would say, that we just get normal downloadable updates.

    I had a few issues with the PreView as well, but the "RTM" works fine for me, even that I upgraded from Windows-8-Pro-WMC-x64.

    I didn't explain it very well but the point I was trying to make was that it was still a work in progress. Some of the updates and fixes may be rolled into the final version that gets released in a couple of weeks. If that's what actually happens I'd rather wait for that version. If your dual booting or running it in a VM its not a big deal. I plan on doing a clean install.

    Hey alphanumeric, I understood what you meant. Question for you since your a TechNet subscriber: Will you be getting the RTM early as with all other OS release's? The word is you guys get it when everyone else gets it....any conformation as to yes or no.

    We don't get it until the 18th. In the past we would have gotten it when the RTM was released to the OEM's. This time around we have to wait.

    EDIT: I just double checked, its not on TechNet or MSDN. The preview is there but no RTM or final 8.1
