In VirtualBox 'control panel' > Settings > Network
There is a box that says "Cable Connect" <--- that needs to be, must be Checked (check mark in)
AND Adaptor #1 (tab) can be set to NAT
This will give Win8 Dev Preview VM running on VirtualBox immediate internet connectivity.
To install Win8 on a VirtualBox vm you will need to know & do the following:
>> In the System settings section for the Virtual Box VM, enable (check)Enable IO APIC on the
Motherboard tab and Enable PAE/NX on the Processor tab.
>> In the Network settings section, select the appropriate adapter tab (usually
Adapter 1). Then click on Advanced arrow to expand/display the additional options. Select
Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM) from the Adapter drop-down list. The Windows 8 guest OS will auto-detect this hardware and install the appropriate driver.
This is regard to changes to Windows Defender (in Windows 8) that was, already, native to Windows OSs even, prior to Windows 8. Also, speaks to the fact that
everything needed is
now covered natively by Windows Defender, eliminating any necessity to install MSE.
In Windows 8, ships w/ Windows Defender, that now is both anti-malware & anti-virus... under the name Windows Defender, Windows Defender & MSE have been combined and built-in out of the box.
Beyond the new offline tool, Microsoft has even bigger plans for Windows Defender. At the company's Build conference in September, Windows President Steven Sinofsky revealed that a new and beefier version of Defender would provide the
built-in anti-malware and antivirus for Windows 8.
