    Windows 10 Automatically Lagging

    Of course if you suspect malware, why not use the FREE Microsoft anti-malware program. It works well, but does seem to take forever. Make sure you download the most recent version each time you need to use it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Windows Firewall has blocked ...............

    You should download malware removal tool from Microsoft and do a full scan. This can take a very long time, but will remove any malware found. Just be patient. No need to have Norton, or indeed any other anti virus software, with Win 10. Rely on Windows defender (free with Win 10 installation)...

The program descriptions don't seem to be in English, possibly Chinese or Japanese, and after a few seconds shutdown proceeds. I have investigated, but can find no reason...

    Windows 10 Questions about windows10 services

    Suggest you don't mess with these or Windows may cease to operate properly. As the folder suggests these apps are used by THE SYSTEM. In fact it's a pity Microsoft don't hide this folder to protect inquisitive users. Leave well alone. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Does your Windows 10 shut down occasionally ?

    Yes.. I have checked EVERYTHING. Gone through settings and control panel with a fine tooth comb. Strangely enough since my original post it's only happened once, so it may have been sorted out by recently downloaded updates to Win 10. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Does your Windows 10 shut down occasionally ?

    Normally I leave my PC on lock screen or put it to sleep using a key on my keyboard. On several occasions I have returned to my PC (after some hours) only to find that it has shut down for no apparent reason. On switching it back on the boot sequence runs OK with no error messages or reason for...

    Windows 10 update and Defender

    Davehc. Stupid me. The date format was not set for the UK and the first digit on the date display in Defender was 8. I took this to be the day, but in fact it was the month (August). Now corrected to show dd-mmm-yy so there will be no confusion, and Defender is in actual fact up to date with...

    Programs (apps) colours

    I hate the light theme in 10. My apps look anaemic ! In previous versions of Windows various elements of app windows could be changed. e.g change the colour of the active window title bar. Is there any way to do this in 10 ? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
