It is v1.0.0 so maybe future updates will show some improvements but I like it as it is so far. Go to: C:Users{User Name}AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartup Copy/Paste this file into the Startup folder: C:Program Files (x86)IObitStartMenu8StartMenu8.exe
  5. If you are using the built-in malware protection with Windows 8, Windows 8 Update Notifier alerts you to new antivirus updates as they are released. By default Microsoft now uses Windows Defender as built-in malware protection.
  6. Among other things Windows Updates address security, performance and compatability issues. They are not all critical but some should be installed as soon as they become available. They are normally released on Patch Tuesday which is the second Tuesday of each month. Some (very few) are released "out-of-band".

Once I ran this software I was informed that I did indeed have 6 Windows Updates waiting to be downloaded and installed. Be sure to look at the see the documentation page for install instructions and Screenshots.

  9. Before installing an app it's good to know just how much of your personal information it has access to and what it may do with it.

  13. The built in Windows Search, formerly known as Windows Desktop Search (WDS), is a nice feature on Windows computers for easily locating files and folders that you may not know the exact location of.
