August 12, 2020 10:02 am By Brandon LeBlanc / Senior Program Manager, Windows Insider ProgramHello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20190 to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.What’s new in Build 20190New post-update experience We know that it doesn’t always feel clear what changed with a major update, or even how you can learn about and try out new features and improvements. This means that updates can feel time consuming without real benefit to you, and we want to change that. We’re introducing a new first run experience via the Tips app that highlights the most exciting changes on your PC after a major Windows 10 feature update is installed. After installing this build, Insiders will see the Tips app is launched highlight some of the most recent new features from the latest Insider Preview builds in the Dev Channel. To see this experience on your device, make sure the “Show me the Windows welcome experience” checkbox in Settings > System &
What was the first real virus you got? What was its name and what did it do? My first one was I think on Windows 95 and all it seemed to do was repeat explitives out of my computer speakers. My second one was on Windows 98. It corrupted all digital media and web development data on a work station. Since then I haven't been aware of any malicious activities on my computer, though I've come close I think. By the time Kazaa came around I was thankfully already pretty clued in on what not to do on my computers. :D I was into application piracy around that time but did my best to stay safe. Eventually one day I thought "really, what the heck am I doing running random EXE crack files from Russia?" Since then I've been all legit. :feelsgoodman: Using discarded ancient versions of Photoshop and Dreamweaver in my earlier days wasn't always fun, though. But let us hold a moment of silence for everyone in our lives who tried to open "Britney.Spears-Im.A.Slave.4.U.mp3.exe"
[b]I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but when I click on the "Join The Community" icon at the Home page, it boots me out to the previous screen where you enter the community. I don't know the intent of this icon but it does not really have a clear function. My suggestion is to just remove the current function behind it, keep the picture in the room and change the words to "Welcome to the Webroot Community". I would like additional comments on this.[/b] Addendum: Please also check out the "software Update" that seems to be pointing to a different place. [b] [/b]
The article: Apple does right by users and advertisers are displeased [url=https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/09/apple-does-right-users-wrong-advertisers]https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/09/apple-does-right-users-wrong-advertisers[/url] In my world displeased advertisers often means pleased consumers! The question: Why does this community board not show a green lock for the https where you type the URL above? That would seem like better security. In my former corporate experience with multiple platforms and multiple tiers, there is no free lunch.

I have read through the posts and don't see one that addresses my particular question. My brother has used Norton 360 for years and says it is well worth the cost. I also paid for but had the download expire on Malwarebytes. If I have Webroots, do I need other programs as well to make sure my devices (Amazon Fire 8 tablet, Moto 4G phone, and old, on its last legs Dell PC) are protected?
[i][u]Summary: CryptoLocker has infected an estimated 250,000 victims, demands an average $300 payout, and is trailing millions in laundered Bitcoin. Dell SecureWorks' new paper sheds light on the unstoppable ransomware[/u].[/i] Dell SecureWorks estimates that CryptoLocker has infected 250,000 victims. The average payout is $300 each, and millions in laundered Bitcoin have been tracked and traced to the ransomware's money runners. Spreading like wildfire from offices to homes, it arrives in email attachments (or over infected networks) to aggressively encrypt all files on a system (including mapped drives, Dropbox files, and all locally connected, network-attached, or cloud-based storage) - while an ominous onscreen timer demands payment within 72 hours. Mess with the files or decline to pay and forget about ever opening your files again. To date, no one has successfully defeated CryptoLocker. The Windows-only ransomware has held rapt the attention of malware fetishists since its f
I'm noticing that after i keep my lap top on for more than 1 day, my ram usage with nothing open goes from about 2 gigs of ram to 9 gigs just being on doing nothing (windows 10 64 bit). The only thing i can find that might be causing it is in virtual memory the no paging file needs to be set, is anyone else having this high ram usage issue? Does anyone have a resolution for this or wait for the next update?

What non-free, non-security, non-famous software do you have on your machine? There’s a big meme that says you never have to pay for software since there is so much free stuff. And it's true, there is so much great free software out there. But there is a lot of great commercial software out there as well. What did you think was so good it was worth buying?

I had a red bordered alert pop up with an alert for Microsoft Security Essentials which said my computer was infected with 3 different virus's one a trojan and two others. Webroot did not pick it up immeidately, but when I ran a scan it said there were 3 infected files and removed them. The only problem is when I open my internet it still keeps appearing and I can't close it or X out of it. Anyone else with this problem? I keep running my webroot but it says there are no problems. Can anyone help. I tried closing out with control/alt/delete and shutting the page down, rebooted and went into the control panel/internet options an removed all temporary files, cookies, etc. and restarting again, but the pop up came back as soon as I opened an IE page. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
Google made a change in Chrome 57 that removes options from the browser to manage plugins such as Google Widevine, Adobe Flash, or the Chrome PDF Viewer. If you load chrome://plugins in Chrome 56 or earlier, a list of installed plugins is displayed to you. The list includes information about each plugin, including a name and description, location on the local system, version, and options to disable it or set it to "always run". You can use it to disable plugins that you don't require. While you can do the same for some plugins, Flash and PDF Viewer, using Chrome's Settings, the same is not possible for the DRM plugin Widevine, and any other plugin Google may add to Chrome in the future. Starting with Chrome 57, that option is no longer available. This means essentially that Chrome users won't be able to disable -- some -- plugins anymore, or even list the plugins that are installed in the web browser. Please note that this affects Google Chrome and Chromium.
With Ransomware continuing to take down digital infrastructure across the globe and natural disasters seemingly more dramatic every year, having a disaster recovery plan for your business has never been more critical. The time is past when a simple “backup plan” was sufficient for a company relying on servers and its data to be available at a moment’s notice.Disaster recovery is the process of devising failsafes to allow a business to bounce back from adverse events, like a hurricane disabling a server or ransomware locking down entire banks of computers. Employing disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) is now a vital part of a strong cyber resilience plan for every market, from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.The truth is, almost every industry has trended digital for the past two decades. As such, being prepared for the inevitable disaster is on par with cybersecurity in terms of importance. Because let’s face it: something will happen to company data at some point. Even if

Hey Guys and Gals :) I am very familiar with o/s for windows through XP Home addition so I'm not exactly new to this... I am however fairly new to Windows 7 and that is what my laptop came with. Ok... That being said, I am using (Add and Remove Programs) to un-install the Power2Go program and it is giving me the following message... "The installation source for this program is not available. Verify that the source exists and you can access it. C:WindowsInstallere393c.msi" note: the directory c:windowsinstaller actually does not exist on my harddrive and cannot find any such file with search. I am wondering if there is an easy way to completely remove this program safely without manually going through my registry and deleting every key that refers to Power2Go after manually deleting the program files from my hd. Thanks for you help in advance guys and gals.
When Edge [url=http://www.edge-online.com/news/the-next-xbox-always-online-no-second-hand-games-50gb-blu-ray-discs-and-new-kinect/]initially reported[/url] that the the new Xbox console would likely need an active Internet connection to work and would eliminate second-hand games, the 'comments' section naturally filled with replies ranging from utter disbelief, to "giving up on console gaming" messages, to sheer anger. Now while this claim is still a wave in a sea of speculation and rumors floating around until the next-gen consoles from Microsoft ([url=http://www.engadget.com/2013/02/08/sony-ps4-main-selling-point-new-playing-options/]and Sony[/url]) actually get revealed, GameStop was quick to voice it's opinion on the idea of a used game-blocking console: [i]"We know the desire to purchase a next-generation console would be significantly diminished if new consoles were to prohibit playing pre-owned games, limit portability, or not play new physical games", said GameSto
