Hi All,

Bought a new PC for the parents after my long trusted XP box died finally. All I can say is "Yuck!" a start button that takes you to metro? no start Menu, I get the impression that its all for the Surface / Windows phone and shoe horned on to a desktop. The only thing is the speed at which it boots (probably because there is nothing on it at the moment!). Well that's 20+ years of familiarity down the drain, trying to get Security Essential's to find Bit Defender is in place already took a little while to figure out. Can anybody tell me why you need a touch screen layout on a desktop machine? Vista was a little odd compared to this Elephant! Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
