2 out of 5 eggs Windows Apps Spam 12/29/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 32-bit

Pros: Very fast, works great with SSD's.

Cons: Windows Apps are loaded with spam-ware. After installing windows 8 & 8.1, I noticed when I was browsing at different websites and looking at things to buy, that those same items I had just looked at would follow me all over the internet in little windows at other websites. At first I thought it was my browser, but I was wrong. It was my Windows 8 Apps! I had been reading about the trouble with Apps, so I decided to turn all of them off and uninstall them. After that I was no longer being followed around the internet by little Spam windows. Apparently Microsoft is in the Spam business now because even a clean install would do the same thing. Shame on you Microsoft, you have crossed the line! You can not be trusted anymore.

Other Thoughts: Fortunately you can turn off the Windows generated spam by turning off Apps and the Apps Updates & uninstall them. Now I have a clean operating system.
