I upgraded from Win 7 and everything seems to be functioning correctly except, Win Media Player tells me that my "disc is empty" when I try to play a movie or video. It recognises that the disc is there but "empty". Plays music etc. stored on my hard drive, no problem. Any ideas? Also, I no longer have Win Media Centre for watching live TV through my built in Freeview tuner. Help !!
Hi. Thanks very much. I've just done that and been promised a product key within 24 hours. Much obliged. I've just noticed in one of the reviews that Win Media player (dvd player) is disabled in win 8 and you have to buy an upgrade.
Norton first off isnt a very good anti virus, they are very expensive and they also allow anything through if a person pays them enough, several key loggers are already allowed through norton. Microsoft security essentials will protect you better and its FREE from microsoft, that would be your best option. Yours truly Windows 8 dev and skype for windows 8 dev
Taron With respect, I think you are motivated more by your heart than your head. I have been using Norton ever since Dr. Solomon antivirus was taken over by McAfee and I have never had a single problem with them. Expensive, probably, but you get what you pay for. While I don't profess to be an 'expert', I have been using Pc's since the days of Windows 3.1 and I know what I like. I'm always prepared to ask for help when necessary but the bland statement from you about Norton, in my opinion, is both mistaken and probably verging on libel. regards
Ummmmm, I maybe wrong but I thought Microsoft Security Essentials is obsolete in W8? It certainly got removed when I upgraded.
I'm not running any third party AV leech. I'm happy to let Microsoft handle my PC security as they did well with Security Essentials. Sure, this leaves this machine susceptible to any saddo who chooses to target Microsoft security but that always been the case for any other AV package. Backup management is better protection IMHO.
