The part at the beginning of the video when he didn't know how to find windows defender I was sort of shaking my head. He's suppose to be an IT pro.


How to find windows defender : Open the home screen and type windows defender.

wow, he at no point thought to look in Control Panel, where Windows Defender has been since Vista?
Windows Defender in itself isn't new, it just MSE merging with it that's new in Windows 8

edit: that's why he didn't notice it in control panel, he leaves it in categories mode. who leaves it in categories mode?!?
