    Windows Defender Latest Eval

    Not intending to rekindle the debate, but I experienced a recent trojan attack by clicking on a search result using WD. My system was infiltrated with over 100 pups/advertisements/browser hijacked. While I accept responsibility for being aware of suspicious links, many AVs would have...

    Internet Explorer does not offer saving passwords

    Have you reset IE ? (InternetOptions/Advanced/Reset) I would choose the first option and then if not successful "Delete Personal Settings" option. IE needs to be restarted after. If not, disable your tracking protection, extensions, and AV one-by-one to see if that could be the culprit...

    Small Shield In corner of my downloads

    Please clarify: - The download has a shield which contains an app ? Or what app are you running ? - Why do you want to disable firewall ? - Have you scanned with your AV ? - In the interim, run AdwCleaner https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

    Solved Internet Explorer is out of date... REALLY?

    Not KYHI, but most use the free version download. If you have downloaded the pro version, it will expire automatically if you do not select the option to purchase.

    Sticking to 8.1

    I have been running Build 10240 which reportedly is the last preview and RTM. - My limited opinion is (1) rendering is noticeably better - like having the latest HD device (2) less resources on my i3, 4GB, laptop. (3) seems slighty faster and smoother. - The above pros are when using...

    Windows Update left system restore unusable

    SFC/scannow is a command prompt, not a software download. Refresh is good option to insure registry is back to specs. As stated, many advise against registry cleaners.

    Sticking to 8.1

    Critique/pre-review of Win10 from PC World. Disappointed in his review of Edge. Nadella was quoted as saying "Win 10 will save the Windows Phone." My dream OS would be one for a PC only that could be synced to a phone, but then I am old enough to be many of you guys Dad. :)...

    Solved Request: Windows Defender always active?

    Personal opinion only and with due respect. I would not trust any app, etc to insure any AV could not be disabled. Above quote is sage advice.

    Sticking to 8.1

    Seems the OP means that he stays with the original OS on his computer. Personally, I am not 100% sure I will permanently upgrade and others may feel the same. Depends on personal needs. My determining factor will be improved performance (less resources, etc) and the Edge browser. Do...

    Solved Cannot update or uninstall embedded Adobe 18.0 in IE 11

    My bad. So used to seeing Adobe referred to as Reader and Flash as Flash. As you may know, Flash is updated through MSN updates. Try to check and see if you have the latest update. There is not a way to remove Flash from IE 8. You may look for ways to disable it.
