you know, i still cant work out what all the fuss is about.
UEFI is good for a windows PC, if an OEM DOESNT provide a way of disabling it then thats the OEMs problem
ive been running a test for the last year on a PC, it has absolutely no anti virus or anti malware programs at all except what comes with Windows, its running Win 7 an is always kept uptodate, its always on the net and is used extensively for day to day tasks.
Funny thing is, everything month when its taken off line for a check up, not a thing.
Im sorry to say but for the large majority of problems on windows its the user thats done something to allow access. Yes thats not always the case, some websites can try screw you with out asking for permission but those websites TEND to be more dodgy by nature. again not always
I guess MS haters will turn to this an say, the OS should stop it, an yes your partly right
But thats like saying, you must make your house air tight to stop you getting a cold. That is not possible and would quickely make your house (and you) unusable. since the begining of time people make defences, others defeat them, defences improve, attack improve, its the way of the world an you will never stop everything, the most effective thing anyone can do is learn how to use a computer without putting it at risk, that will remove the vast majority of potential problems for users
