I really don't know but I have been fighting a new computer running Windows 8 for days. My advice go by Windows 7 and get rid of this crap.

It seems like every thing I try to do is a fail or I have to do a work around. Total crap.

The latest for me is trying to install Symantec Antivirus. This is something I do all the time at work on both XP and Windows 7 machines with no problems at all.

But when I try to extract all the compressed files off the CD to the desktop all it does it extact the Mac folder. Tried repeatedly to do it but no. The files are all there, they just won't extract. Had to say screw it and am loading directly off the DVD without extracting.

This now the 3 night in a row Windows 8 has literally driven me to drink.

Well, at least Windows 8 was good for something.

Good luck!
