Windows 8 build leak shows Charm Bar, IE auto-update Chinese site PCBeta posts up images of leaked Windows 8 build 8158.
Images include one of the Desktop with a charm bar located on the right side of the screen. It can be accessed by bringing the mouse pointer to the bottom-right-hand corner of the screen.

Another image seems to suggest that Microsoft has brought silent updates to Internet Explorer, which is something rivals like Google already have in their web browsers. The image shows the "About" Windows in Internet Explorer 10 with a checked option to "Install new versions automatically."

A public beta of Windows 8 is expected to be released next month, at the same time as the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) is underway in Las Vegas.
