    1. Is it compatible with USB web cam Microsoft LifeCam VX-2000 Webcam?

    2. In terms of security from viruses spyware etc from the web, how can I protect myself?

    3. Is it compatible with software compatible for Windows such as ZoneAlarm, Spybot, MalwareBytes, Spyware Terminator, and Ad-Aware? All are .exe programs for Windows downloaded from the net.

    4. Are there automatic security updates?

    5. If I wanted to upgrade to Windows CE 8 when it's released, can I and how?

    6. Are the specs posted good enough for fast web browsing, online application use such as Word documents via Microsoft SkyDrive, and can I edit .txt files?

    7. Skype compatible?

    8. Windows Live Messenger compatible?

    9. Fast easy access to my external hard drive? Does it support both FAT32 and NTFS or which one?

    P.S. I'm not sure what version of 7 CE it runs; must be Standard or better.

    Please help me by replying ASAP. Thank you so much in advance for your time and help!
