    Defender Detected Items but no scans or warnings showed

    Exploit:HTML/Axpergle.AK exploit:js/axpergle.BW ^ are no longer found. I google them and a Microsoft website says Windows Defender will take care of them. Hopefully they never return.

    Defender Detected Items but no scans or warnings showed

    My Windows 8.1 PC used to do a full Defender scan in about 8 minutes. A few days ago it wouldn't complete a scan after 13 hours, the progress bar was only like %3 done. I made a thread. Someone suggested scan in safe mode. I didn't do safe mode but I scanned again and after about 15 hours, it...

    13 hours windows defender scan at %3

    well, I scanned again and after about 15 hours this time, it finally finished. And now it does a full scan in just about 8 minutes again. But I poked around in Defender and found something startling. I have never once scanned and it said it found anything or had any popups that it found...

    13 hours windows defender scan at %3

    I have a ~$2K PC w/ W8.1, and full scans with defender usually take about 5 mins. All of a sudden it takes 13 hours scanning and the completion bar is only at like %3. The # of files scanned keeps going up but I eventually canceled the 13 hour scan because I wanted to try reinstalling Spybot...

    easy stop windows 10 upgrade install 8 8.1 7 forced pop up

    There are a few registry hacks and 3rd party installs that can do this but I was hesitant to install even an supposedly known-safe 3rd party thing, and I never had to mess with the registry. It has been suggested what I am about to suggest but in a sort of different way possibly. There's a bunch...

    windows 10 photo viewer opens multiple windows numerous

    Enough of this nonsense, I rolled back last night to 8.1. I found some fixes to stop the forced W10 download. I did check a few months ago but apparently not good enough, I thought there was no way out according to what I read, The ones I found look like registry hacks though so far I hope to...

    windows 10 photo viewer opens multiple windows numerous

    Seriously, how do the people who work for the richest person in the entire world (bill gates, richest person in the world) making the world's main computer OS sit around and make this stuff? Do they say, 'Let's make Windows 10 even worse than 8 was to XP, no?". "Let's remove functionality from...

    what happens to windows 8.1 to 10 update after 07/28/2016?

    I despise windows 10. I was forced to upgrade two days ago. The pop up had been happening for months and I was able to just disregard it. Where was the option NOT to upgrade to W10!? Eventually it somehow froze my windows update because it gave me no option to install other important updates...

    I need a ~$30 camera that does't take long between photos.

    I have a Nikon COOLPIX S51 8.1 MP which goes for only about $20 used on ebay but it's all I really need (flash, 8mp or better, macros). But it takes too long of a pause between photos and when doing things like changing flash to on/off there's a slight delay, only about 2 or 3 seconds pause but...

    taskbar icons of open items (IE, Calculator) too small.

    I just did the 'refresh without losing data or settings', well it f'd my computer up pretty good by removing basically ALL settings! great!... Now when I have something like calculator open (not the tablet version BS app which I use none of), or if I have IE open or internet options, the icon is...
