My friend has just bought a new laptop and is now using Windows 8 rather that WinXP. I know nothing about Windows 8 (and only a little about XP), I can't look at the machine because she live 100 miles away. What security comes with this (like MSE), and should/could she install any freeware/shareware antivirus? Thank you very much.
