    hmm, odd just tried a fresh install using the "newly" updated iso that were released couple days ago, using 8.1 pro, seems they stuck in something called Embedded Lockdown Manager, it shows on the start screen, you cannot even remove it, its a part of install.wim as well, even core as it

    can anyone please please enlighten me?!? why does ms feel this is needed in a retail home environment?? we are not talking about embedded versions here, strange
