The Which report for this year rates the built in Microsoft security on Windows 8 as the best, closely followed by MSE, downloaded and free, in second place.

The next best freebie is Avira, 7th, and then Zonealarm, 8th. AVG, which was somehow 4th last year, is now rated 15th and Avast has now dropped to 18th.

The rest on the list are all paid for systems.

So, on these tests, and,as last year, Microsoft wins yet again (not often we hear that :)).

You know why Windows 8 is listed as having the best security? Cos to qualify for top place the security must have the least amount of infections. And the reason Win 8 has the least amount of infections is...

Nobody uses it! :D

I'm sure at least 5 of the 80 million mugs that bought Windows 8 are using it :lol:

so, that works out at, if my Math is right, 875 persons per Billion people, assuming everyone has at least one computer. :)

Did use MSE but did not protect me from a virus recently!
Now use Bitdefender Internet Security and very happy with it.
But it is really up to what you like, get recommended or am willing to pay!!!

Sad thing is that is not the truth. Many people use W8 and praise it.You only have to look at the comments the 13 million people leave on their official Facebook page :D

Gordon Bennet! :mad: Not the point! Twas just a joke. A funnee. A ha-ha-ha. An attempt at mirth. Much humour in the marsh, ya know?

So you a use it on a your lap-a-top? Thas good innit, lets a have a singa song.

Courtesy a Joe Dolce innit:

What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect.
What-a you t'ink you do? Why you look-a so sad?
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place.

Ah, shaddap-a you face!


And, er, that's also meant to be a slice of chuckle :blush:

PS: Fear of change? Hogwash.

I tried Win 8 for a month and in my opinion it's an unadulterated pile off pig's spew. I tried, I wanted to like it, but hand on heart I did not like it. File under 'ME' & 'Vista'. But hey, we're all different I suppose.

As for all those folk who profess to like it, they could let all the Microsoft employees pull all their toenails out and they'd still say they liked it just cos it's...... Microsoft :)
