This thread got bumped so I finally read it and wondered about Windows 8 security. This article makes WD sound less than secure, having allowed 61 of 385 malware samples to compromise the OS.

Windows 8 security is like a swiss cheese flak jacket

Perhaps the 385 malware tests were not exactly what users will encounter. Viruses have been replaced by web-traps, it seems, as the principal threat currently.

Wow, they took it down pretty quick.  Well I guess WD is on the junk list now.  It's a shame that the company that publishes the OS is not able locate and stop other programmers from exploiting their product.  Microsoft should be the best expert on Windows but they aren't.
