When you delete file windows 8 warns or not.
.

As I have written in my previous Post
"Their is no Dialog box to Send file to recycle bin, but their is if u do "Permanent Delete". (shift+del)"

Are you checked any USB3.0 device with windows 8.

I do not have any usb 3.0 devices nor port so can't do it.

@asingh

yes,their is. Most probably similar to windows 7. I think UAC is their to stay for a long time and according to me it is very good and usefull. Yes it sometimes annoys us, irritate us but it is useful.

To get this in XP we used to use "limited account" for our day to day work and use "administrator account" to install any thing

Nice review. Screen shots looks appealing, thanks for the same. Mine is an old PC. Just wondering if there will be drivers for Windows 8. I have Windows 7 now, but don't have graphics drivers. Hence no Aero, WMP, WMM or can't play any games. The system requirements say there is only need for DirectX 9 drivers. Does it mean that it will work on my PC ? Downloading any way :)

Start menu is fine, but I think explorer and task manager are better in Windows 8. Anyway, thanks for the link :)

It is just a modified version of Windows Defender. I think it will be wise to use a separate anti virus and firewall.

^^ Ya I believe I have already shared that..

I am really impressed with Windows basic. Running windows 7 and windows 8 together at once is really stressful on system. I was getting lags on clicks and all. But after changing it to "windows Basic". wow Lot of improvement in performance.
