    Is anyone running the Win 8 CP? Does it include the latest MSE with all the new options/updates?

    What new options? It's a new MSE version but the same old options and UI. RAM usage is much lower though, about half of what it used to be.

    By the way, they went back to calling it Windows Defender.

    Actually, if it's the same as the MSE v4 beta, then they've taken away options. :D

    I talked about options, not protection features. With MSE v2, the user could choose the actions to perform when MSE found something; MSE v4 took that way, for example.

    Options... Not protection functionalities.

    Ok. :) I'll take your word for it since I didn't use the v4 beta.
