I think the advice will only make sense if you have the Windows 8 operating system.
I don't....I have windows 7.

You need to be operating Windows Eight like John has and is now on any new computer bought,it works completely different to all the other Windows programs, it also includes Margaret's pet hate the new I E 10. Hope that is simple don't touch unless you have W 8.

I now only download Microsoft updates when I want to.
Its funny when I install win7 then do all the updates M$ make you aware of a handful of browsers and gives you the choice to choose an alternate one. It would be odd to purposefully offer you alternatives and then sabotage them. But. That wouldn't surprise me.

I always update IE. I just never use it.

IMO the only reason for not running windows updates is when running an dodgy copy...

Yay to firefox. Though I prefer Chrome now....

I have just replaced a laptop and I purposely chose one with Windows 7 on it.....though I did notice that they were getting harder(not hard) to find.
I called one supplier to ask if I could have the laptop which was on sale, but have Windows 7 on it.....he asked why would I want to have an old operating system.....I told him that was my business...could he supply one or not...No, was his reply. I went elsewhere.
cashman and jaysay like this.
