    Windows 11 Will require BitLocker ...?

    I have read that Win11 will require that BitLocker is installed and activated using the newer v2.0 TPM chip. Using no TPM chip, or the v1.2 chip will not allow Win11 to operate. Win11 seems to gets more complicated with more potential for backdoors. It will need to be out for quite a while...

    Windows 10 My PC has 6 drives

    I see that there is. A primary drive/partition can be made active, which these already are. Which tells me that actions can be initiated from them as in drives C: and D:, by installed apps. By everything as I understand, malware and other things could be installed there and be active. If they're...

    Windows 10 Nonexistant USB Drives

    On My "This PC" page, I show 4 extra nonexistent USB drives. Little doubt they showed up when I used some thumb drives. In my PCs POST setup there are shown 4 extra drives, "General MassStorage Drive Class 2952", numbers 00 thru 03. I believe these point towards the same nonexistent drives...

    Strange happenings in a new Win10 install

    I found what was directing to the hr.exet file during startup. In the Startup folder was a start.bat file. It was doing it. Deleting it and the ini file has eliminated the problem. I am confident that my AV, AM and Acronis have stopped and/or removed all other traces of the ransomware.

    Strange happenings in a new Win10 install

    I have found signs that a ransomware attack was made. It was stopped by one or more of my defenses, AVG, Malwarebytes, ZoneAlarm, or Acronis. I have deleted the html page from the data drive and have run scan after scan. Everything now says that I am clean. The startup notification in the...

    Strange happenings in a new Win10 install

    As I said earlier, there is no sign of a ransomware attack other that the strange appearance of that html page showing up on a data drive. And, yes I have backup images of my drives.

    Strange happenings in a new Win10 install

    The ransom note has a date stamp 0f 6/27, three days ago. The cmd prompt with the lost " hr.exet " file note had been going on for maybe a few days longer (?). I can find nothing about " hr.exet ", what it is, or what it does. Somewhere in there I installed Acronis TIH. It is supposed to have...

    Win 7 voice recognition question

    There may be something out there that can do what you want. But, It'll probably be in the kilo-buck or higher range, something governments or enterprises might be willing to pay for. You are asking for a very sophisticated type of software.

    Why is Nero Burning Rom rated so low on TopTenRevies ?

    Look at what the reviews cover. They are reviewing Burning ROM not the Nero Suite. While N.B.R. can be purchased separately, it is only part of what is in the complete suite of burning apps. Nero Burning ROM is knocked down because it does not deal with video formats: NTSC, PAL, WMV, and so on...
