    In Windows 10 10240 I just noticed when I view network a device is shown called Blaze any idea what it is? I have no idea what it is I don't use any fancy phone or other devices. It's nothing I knowingly installed

    Do you perchance use Blaze Radio?
    I think it may install a network related support software, although I'm not certain.

    I don't use Blaze or any radio and I'm running this on a VM. I'll nose around when I have more time and see if I can figure it out.

    There's also a mobile service called Blaze, so phones using it might show up an identify as such.

    Strange I just booted it and and now it's showing a phone and Not Blaze. I've got wireless net watcher on host and VM but neither show anything out of the ordinary items. I'lll scan with defender and MBAM.

    My desktop is not wireless equipped. I looked in the Netgear rouer and the device in Windows 10 does not show there. Just curious about what it is.
