What are the requirement of Windows 8?

I am not going to answer it since it depends on user to user. How you do your work and how you will use Windows 8 and in which activity. For gaming users, high-performance hardware is recommended. But if you just want to get your work done then optimum hardware requirement has been mentioned in the Microsoft website.

When it comes out. Do you have to get touch screen to be able to use Windows 8. Or Can you upgrade from windows 7?

Windows 8 has been specially designed for touch-screens. However, that doesn't mean that it won't do its job in mouse-keyboard hardware.

Does window's 8 make your computer fast?

Yes, probably, it fast-boots the system and there is a lot of improvement in file transfer speeds. But if the hardware isn't enough to make it work like 'swoosh!' then your computer is not ideal for it. Plus, there is a requirement for graphic card (however I have ignored it, but it's fine still).

Is Windows 7 much better then Windows 8 and why?

A lot of people dislike Windows 8, and are trying to avoid it, often by using Windows 7 instead. In fact, Windows 8.0 was such a flop that Microsoft had to create 8.1, in which they fixed some bugs, and put back the start menu. 8.1 has been met with better success, but people still don't like the "tablet" style system, or the greater internet dependence as much. For this reason, Windows 10 is said to be more the "desktop" style again, like Windows 7 was. Windows 8 does definitely have greater hardware requirements, also, which make older machines perform more slowly. This also tends to make games and videos run more slowly, even on a new PC, but especially on an old one.

How do you uninstall smilebox?

This is not an easy application to remove. However with a little digging on the Smilebox website I found the following:

http://support.smilebox.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=4044

How do I uninstall Smilebox?

If you simply wish to turn off notifications from Smilebox, you can do that by clicking the Smilebox tray icon (menu icon on the MAC). Simply click the "Notify Me About Recipient Views and New Designs" line and it will now show un-checked. When you exit Smilebox with notification turned off, the tray icon will also disappear. If you choose to start Smilebox at a later date, the tray icon will appear again, but will disappear when you close Smilebox again (as long as the "Notify" is un-checked). It will not remain on your tray when Smilebox isn't actively running if the "Notify" is un-checked.

If you wish to uninstall the Smilebox program from your computer, please do the following:

If you have Windows XP, click the Start button, then Control Panel. Select "Add or Remove Programs". When the list of programs comes up, click on Smilebox and then on the "Remove" button. If you are using a partner version of Smilebox it may have a slightly different name, such as, Hallmark Smilebox.*

If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, click on the Start button, then Control Panel. Select "Programs and Features" ("Programs" for Windows 7 users). When the list of programs comes up, click on Smilebox and then on the "Uninstall" button. If you are using a partner version of Smilebox it may have a slightly different name, such as, Hallmark Smilebox.*

If you have Mac, the uninstall is a 3 step process: 1) close the icon on the menu bar (click the Smilebox icon and then select Quit from the menu options), 2) from the Applications folder, drag the Smilebox application to the trash, and 3) from your home directory, choose Library > Application Support folder, drag Smilebox to the trash. You can then empty your trash to clear Smilebox.

* If you are unable to find Smilebox in your list of programs on a Windows computer, we do have an alternative way to uninstall the Smilebox application. To uninstall, you will need to find the directory where the application is saved. There is an uninstall.exe file included in the Smilebox application directory. (On all machines, you might, first, have to choose the option to Show Hidden files from within your Control Panel options):

For a Windows Vista and Windows 7 computer, the Smilebox directory is defaulted to the following path: <username>\Appdata\Roaming\Smilebox. When you locate the uninstall.exe file, right click on the icon and select the option Run as Administrator. That will uninstall the program.

For the Windows XP computer, the Smilebox directory defaults to the following location: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Smilebox. Double click the uninstall.exe file to uninstall Smilebox.

This should remove the software.

iTunes
Windows 8

How do you create a shortcut for iTunes to appear as an icon on your Desktop?

Shortcuts on Macs are Aliases

This answer is for OS X.

Open your Applications folder and find iTunes. Right click (or Control click) on the iTunes icon and select "Make Alias." Move the newly created alias (shortcut) to the desktop.

Alternatively you can just drag iTunes into the Dock. Icons in the Dock are aliases (shortcuts) and are created immediately when an object is dragged there.

Is Windows 8 is better than 7?

:) Now This question is kind of easy and is a personal question.

Windows 8 and 7 is better because it's your own opinion. You need to try both by going to a store like "Best Buy" or going to "Wal-mart" that has computers on display for you to try out. Now once you tried both (Which i recommend you to try them both out for a 10 minute- 20 minute trial) out, you can know which is better. But in my opinion, i have windows 7, but since Windows 8 is new, its probably more advance, which results, Windows 8, is better.

If this helps you a lot, please like it and any questions mail me at smithjustene@gmail.com :)
