A friend bought a new Win 8.0 laptop, and asked me to set it up for him.

I tried to update to IE 11, and was greeted with a message that I had to upgrade to 8.1 in order to uupgrade to IE11. ABSURD! IE11 runs fine on Win7 so why do I need 8.1 to install it on a newer version of the OS?!

My first action was to try to update it to 8.1, but it wouldn't let me do that until I'd applied updates first. ABSURD! Updating to 8.1 should apply the missing updates in the process of "upgrading"!

So I went to apply Windows updates. Of course there were a slew of them (101 to be exact), so I simply selected them all and let it go. 30 minutes later, it rebooted and spent the next 1.5 hours configuring the updates, only to displayy a message claiming that the configurtation failed, and that it was going to revert changes - which took another 1.5 hours.

So, I had to applie all of the updates two or three at a time - which took another two hours.

Finaly I was able to upgrade to 81. - which took over THREE HOURS!

I started at 9am and didn't finish this until 5pm! FRAK!

I tried to install MSSE and it told me that Win8 already had Windows Defender on it and didn't need MSSE. How is it that Windows Defender is all I need on Win8, but Win7 needs MSSE and Windows Defender? WTF?!
