lol I agree. Windows 8 isnt a factor. I think there is some nasty going around that MS is catching up with. Been a while since they had some updates like this.

They should broadcast what they are patching a bit more so virus programmers better know how to correctly alter their virals in time.

Probably to make the average consumer think that Windows 7 is getting left behind by Microsoft.
As us PC enthusiasts know, that's not always the case, although some of us buy regardless.
