    Which Anti-Virus do You Use?

    I added Kaspersky, Acronis, Malwarebytes Anti-malware, and Ccleaner to round things out. Malwarebyte's pay version works fine with Defender and Kaspersky, which is the only antivirus that catches everything in unbiased testing, tested it myself, it found two Trojans that Norton and Defender both...

    Suggestion how to improve the windows security

    I improved windows 10 security at the user level with specific software to cover specific weaknesses. First, lack of integral control of any self-executing programs, which I nail with WinPatrol, second, lack of perfect virus control, now covered with Kaspersky, which is the only antivirus to...

    Which Anti-Virus do You Use?

    In Windows 10, I use Defender, made by Windows for Windows. I added Sandboxie as well, and still use WinPatrol.

    How would you rate Windows 7

    I liked Windows 7, but noticed that updates became a nightmare, the apparent push to Windows 10. The WU update right after SP1 was the initial source of misery. An update should fix a problem, not create one. The only way to keep Windows 7 good is to keep a good image of it with all KB updates...

    Windows 7 Update Fix?

    I found that anyone doing a clean install of windows 7 will find that updates screw up right after SP1, when the new 'update engine' is downloaded. Installing WindowsUpdateAgent-7.6-x64 won't help. Running WindowsUpdateDiagnostic is no real help as well. One update, Windows6.1-KB3138612-x64...

    Windows 10 Microsoft Edge, why so hard to use?

    Using Edge with native color management to watch Netflix is like doing an easter egg hunt, you have to move your cursor around a black screen and hope to highlight something worth watching, what a joke:you'd think a year would be long enough to fix such a glaring hole. It's impossible to change...

    How would you rate Windows 7

    Windows 7 is the most user-friendly OS, they've gotten away from that concept a bit, by screwing up menus, making things harder to find. Taking away legacy game compatibility in Windows 10 hurts, too. I rather enjoy those games I paid good money for, like Bejeweled 3.

    Which Anti-Virus do You Use?

    Trying Norton Internet Security, had it on my new motherboard cd, works pretty good, has a cool live update feature, and does disk maintenance in the background, too. Was using MSE, which was pretty good for freeware, Norton provided a more robust option. The newest version is a nice...

    Bejeweled 3 incompatibility in Windows 10

    I noted on Steam forums that Bejeweled 3 works fine on Windows 10 if it's installed from a CD. I just dragged and dropped the game folder, as I downloaded it years ago. Works great on Windows 7.

    the frickin' GWXUX...

    I finally decided the best course was a clean install, with careful avoidance of the 3035583 nightmare altogether. When they get the bugs out then I'll reconsider. I don't like losing my games, my menus, checking for updates or losing my privacy. jus' sayin'

    the frickin' GWXUX...

    I tried to uninstall KB:3035583 but couldn't, of course. So I figured I would try an administrative CMD window command, and got a blatant lie. They sneakily moved the GWX folder somewhere else, and changed registry locations too, and search of course doesn't find it. When I typed WUSA /UNINSTALL...

    Bejeweled 3 incompatibility in Windows 10

    It's listed on the official list as 'playable.' I bought Bejeweled(R) 3GH 1.0 - gh_20101119143650 I initially downloaded Bejeweled from Popcap, Bejeweled 2 is the earlier version, it works fine in Windows 10, I bought Bejeweled 2 on disk. Windows 10 Games Compatibility List

    Bejeweled 3 incompatibility in Windows 10

    That's the reason. The secdrv.sys breaks thousands of older games, making Windows 10 lousy for gaming. SECDRV.SYS Not Loading in Windows 10; this will break thousands of older games.
