#106628 Windows 8 - Pricing, upgrading details

Posted James (Jim) Hillier on 22 October 2012 - 02:07 PM

Windows 8 may come in in fewer flavors than its predecessors but it seems pricing policy is set to be as confusing as ever, if not more so. One thing appears certain; anyone wishing to purchase the new operating system, whether it be via upgrade, OEM, or whatever, is going to get a much better deal this side of January 31st, 2013? prices after that date (when the promotion expires) are set to rise dramatically.

Windows 8 is (or will be) available in just two editions for home PC users; Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. Neither edition includes Media Center or support for DVD playback. Media Center cannot be added to Windows 8 but will be available to purchase as an add-on for Windows 8 Pro. I cannot see any reason why the DVD playback issue could not easily be resolved by installing one of the good, free third party media players such as VLC.

Here is a run down of features included in Windows 8 Pro which are missing from the standard Windows 8:
  • BitLocker encryption
  • Boot from VHD
  • Join a Windows domain
  • Group Policy
  • Hyper-V (on 64-bit systems with SLAT capable CPU)
  • Windows Media Center (via purchased add-on)
  • Remote Desktop ? Client & Host (Windows 8 includes Client only)
You can view a full feature comparison chart on Wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_8_editions

I?ve hunted all around the net and as far as I can see there is still no official word from Microsoft on an exact overall pricing structure. However, we can ascertain some aspects of pricing through dribs and drabs of information posted on Microsoft related blogs and via pre-order details from retail outlets.

Here is what we now know for certain:
  • Windows 8 Pro upgrade is now available to pre-order through selected retailers at $69.99us.
  • If you purchase (or have purchased) an eligible Windows 7 PC any time between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013 you will be able to purchase an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $14.99us ? redeemable commencing 26th October.
  • Microsoft is set to offer an online Windows 8 Pro upgrade for $39.99us, available from 26th October through 31st January 2013 (a backup DVD will also be available for an additional $15.00).
According to an article posted on Windows Blog, Media Center will be available free to everyone who upgrades via Microsoft?s $39.99 online process:


We set out to make it as easy as possible for everyone to upgrade to Windows 8. Starting at general availability, if your PC is running Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 you will qualify to download an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $39.99. And if you want, you can add Windows Media Center for free through the ?add features? option within Windows 8 Pro after your upgrade.

Also, online retailer Newegg is currently offering the following ?deals? on Windows 8 pre-orders:
  • Windows 8 Professional Upgrade ? $69.99 (save $130)
  • Windows 8 Pro Pack ? Product Key Card (no media) ? $69.99 (save $30)
  • Windows 8 (Full Version) ? OEM $99.99
  • Windows 8 Pro (Full Version) ? OEM $139.99
The fact that Newegg has appended a ?save $130.00? note to the Windows 8 Pro upgrade deal also seems to suggest that the price is set to jump to $199.99 after the promotion expires on January 31st.

In case you were wondering, the ?Windows 8 Pro Pack? is for upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro. Meaning that if you originally purchased Windows 8 and then wish to upgrade to Pro you will currently have to fork out a further $69.99 for the privilege. This also looks set to increase at promotion?s end, by $30.00 to $99.90. Although, according to an article posted on the MSDN blog, the Pro Pack does include Media Center.

From what I have read, and based on the pricing structure as it currently stands, it appears the Pro edition represents the sweeter deal. The best (least expensive) option for anyone looking to upgrade, other than those who are eligible for the $14.99 deal, certainly appears to be Microsoft?s $39.99 online offer which will be avilable from 26th October.

*Those who are eligible for the special $14.99 upgrade price have until February 28th, 2013 to register? here is a link to full instructions: Windows Upgrade Offer Registration Now Available.

**Details regarding pricing are relevant to the U.S. ? other countries may vary.

#106548 Google Chrome Spyware?

Posted Skittler on 10 October 2012 - 12:32 AM

Why are you guys so worried about this? Is the Government actively seeking you? Are you looking up child pornography? I myself have looked up illegal things on google (torrents, cracks, warez etc..). If they where giving this information to the authorities I believe I would have been informed by now. Google can track anything I do, I could care less. Like mentioned before, they have to be given a subpoena to share this, but that's with any site you join. No one is going to cover up and take the fall for your illegal activities. Google is not out to get you like you guys are making this out to be.

Just looking around the site and found this, I really liked watching them build it and I love the paint job. The only problem is I either have to be drunk or well medicated to get in one of those..lol. I firmly believe if God wanted us to fly He would have given us wings. LOL!

#106408 Beware new rogue anti-virus - "Win 8 Security System'

Posted James (Jim) Hillier on 18 September 2012 - 01:11 AM

Well that didn?t take long, did it. Windows 8 hasn?t even been officially released yet and already the devious cyber-crooks are taking advantage of the name. According to a McAfee security bulletin this latest rogue anti-virus, calling itself ?Win 8 Security System? was first detected around the end of August.

For the uninitiated; rogue anti-virus typically infects a user?s system, then attempts to scare its victims into actually purchasing the software by issuing fake security messages. It pretends to scan the computer, displaying grossly exaggerated numbers of nonexistent threats, then tells victims they need to buy the full version in order to fix these false errors.

Win 8 Security System 1.jpg
Win 8 Security System 2.jpg


The ?Win 8 Security System? claims to detect infections, and displays alerts to scare users into purchasing protection. The real infection, of course, is the Win 8 Security System itself.

Win 8 Security System is quite similar to fake AV product Windows Ultra-Antivirus and is extremely aggressive and hard to remove
To help protect itself, Win 8 Security System comes with a rootkit and creates a plethora of registry elements and values, as well as half a dozen files. This makes it very risky to remove manually as the system can be permanently damaged by any mistakes made during the removal process.The McAfee report recommends that manual removal should only be attempted by experienced users such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. Other users are advised to utilize installed security software for removal.

This type of malware is generally delivered via infected websites; always keep your resident AV and other security software up-to-date and never click on banners offering ?free? scans. If a message from any unknown anti-virus software should popup on your screen; disconnect from the internet straightaway, do NOT click anywhere on the message, and immediately perform full scans through your installed security software.
