I trade using Windows 7 and an 4 core I7 computer. I am wondering about the upgrade path from here. It is about time for me to buy a new computer and I don't fancy Win 8. Has anybody else faced this issue and resolved it? My software runs on windows, but there is a version that is browser based that I can use. The issue with that is the latest DNS attack denial of service that some internet providers are struggling with. I think things will just get worse. I am tired of spending significant time upgrading and virus scanning my computers. Like most users, I just want to use it, not fix it all the time. The upgrades have been hatching my sound icon and my internet icon in the taskbar. First it works, then it doesn't as upgrades come out. They had this same problem about 18 months ago and then fixed it. Today they broke it yet again! After breaking it, fixing it, and now breaking it again, I have had enough. If I have to start testing Windows updates for compatibility then that is where I draw the line. Are things getting cloud - y all day? Are we at a major tipping point for Windows? Is the Internet secure enough to run a portfolio?
