Windows 8 PCs contain a new technology called Secure Boot that only boots devices that have been verified by Microsoft.
Removing computer viruses ranges between painfully frustrating and impossible. Twelve months ago we launched the first ever consumer-ready USB device for removing viruses from infected PCs. Today, we launched a free upgrade that makes the FixMeStick the first virus removal device to support Windows 8 PCs.

PC manufacturers must include a technology called Secure Boot on PCs that ship with Windows 8. Secure Boot uses a public-key infrastructure to verify the integrity of the operating system and prevent unauthorized programs booting on the device.
