October 20, 2020How to get the Windows 10 October 2020 UpdateByJohn Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery With organizations moving and adapting from remote to hybrid work scenarios, and essential workers continuing to support us all, it is more important than ever that we continue to provide you with the tools you need to remain protected and productive. In June, we announced Windows 10, version 20H2—and the availability of the first preview build in the Windows Insider Program. We then released a preview build to commercial customers in the Beta and Release Preview Channels for pre-release validation in August. We have continued to make improvements based on the feedback received through these programs and I am pleased to announce that we are beginning the availability of the October 2020 Update. Today’s post offers details on our measured and phased roll out approach, how you can get the update, and information to enable commercial organizations t
by: Paul Horowitz Are you tired of seeing the “Upgrade to macOS Sonoma” notifications on your Mac running Ventura or Monterey? If so, you can hide those notifications and stop the “Upgrade to macOS Sonoma” nagging on your Mac.It’s not unusual for Mac users to continue running older versions of system software, well after a new version of MacOS is released, and Sonoma is no different. In fact, there are tons of Mac users who continue to run MacOS Ventura, MacOS Monterey, and earlier MacOS releases, whether for compatibility reasons, personal preference, they’re not yet ready to install Sonoma, or maybe they’re simply following the old adage of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Whatever the case, if you do not want to see the “Upgrade to macOS Sonoma” notifications on your Mac any longer, you can hide them. ⇨⇨ Full Article ⇦⇦
[b]Who sent the message?[/b] If you were not expecting something from a family member or friend, it may legitimately be from them, or it could be that their account was hijacked and the message is actually being sent by a cybercriminal hoping to infect your computer and/or steal your information. The easy way to discover whether it is actually from your friend or family member is to call, text, or email the sender and ask. Be especially wary of emails from friends and family that a) have no subject line, and b) only contain a link or attachment. This is usually evidence for a hijacked account. Be sure to call the person who purportedly sent you the link to discuss the message with them. If the message and attachments or link come from a company, there is a different set of questions to ask. [b]Do you use this company?[/b] [b][/b] If not it is probably junk, or worse, a scam. If you do use the company, were you expecting to receive an email, or other message

Hi everyone, hope you can help. Need to uninstall Freemake Video Downloader, it's thrown up a message asking if I want Uninstall to remove a shared file as it is no longer in use by any programme - file name swresample-0.dll location C:Programme Files (x86) FreemakeCOM1.1 click either Yes Yes to all No No to all it does say that if any programms still use the file then they won't run properly without it, but also says it would not do any harm if it is left on. Just wondering what to do for the best. Just recently, think when I updated Windows Media Player, I can't play films, music, can't view some pictures when using it. Saying that 'Windows Media Play encountered a problem when playing this file'. I'm trying to make my laptop run a bit quicker as it's become very slow over the last month; any suggestions? Linda
I'm using Firefox 21 on Win XP. When I log into my email account at Verizon I get the following pop up: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/5144iDE9534D9E339ED73.jpg[/img] This doesn't happen with IE-8. Is there a setting on FF to turn this pop up off and is it safe to turn it off?
Microsoft is placing the Xbox One beyond the reach of people without a stable and reliable internet connection. The reason for the move to always-online is to take console gaming to the next level. This will create a new world of hybrid multiplayer development and games that would not be possible on an unconnected console. The perfect example of this new frontier of multiplayer gaming is Bungie's online first-person shooter (FPS), [b][url=http://www.techhive.com/article/2028589/destiny-bungies-next-big-thing.html]Destiny[/url][/b]. The multiplayer advancements will incorporate many of the appealing aspects from Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOs) into a console.

After several demonstrations and rumours of suspected attacks against motor vehicles the industry is finally taking action. [url=http://www.darkreading.com/author-bio.asp?author_id=322]Kelly Jackson Higgins[/url] 7/15/2014 [i]"The auto industry's move toward an ISAC comes on the heels of that of the retail and [url=http://www.darkreading.com/analytics/threat-intelligence/oil-and-natural-gas-industry-forms-isac/d/d-id/1278885]oil and natural gas industries[/url], which recently formed ISACs for their respective industries. While retail and oil & natural gas have faced a wave of real-world threats and attacks on their systems, carmakers for the most part so far have been mostly faced with research demonstrating possible attacks. The heat is on, however, because by 2017, more than 60% of new vehicles will be connected to the Internet, auto industry officials say."[/i] [url=http://www.darkreading.com/analytics/threat-intelligence/automobile-industry-accelera
Fact or Myth: Older, slower antivirus software is better and more thorough than the faster Webroot SecureAnywhere
[b][u]MYTH[/u][/b] [b][u] [/u][/b] Ever since the launch of Webroot SecureAnywhere (WSA), one of the biggest concerns we have seen is that the scans are "too fast to be doing anything effectively." Having worked in support since well before the launch of WSA, I cannot tell you how many times I have seen this topic come up due to a popular misconception that a fast scan is somehow less thorough. [b]To explain why this is a myth rather than a fact, I'll first explain how older, conventional detection models work.[/b] When you first install a program that relies on one of those models, the program first imports tens to hundreds of megabytes of detection definitions from a central server. The installation is slow and cantankerous. If you're on a slower-speed connection, this initial stage can prove insurmountable at times. Believe it or not, some people still use dial-up. There are some parts of the world that unfortunately still don't have a choice.&nb
Last year I finally bit the bullet and got a 'smart phone' because I neede to be able to check out my emails while in transit to be available to my clients immediately. When I got the new phone I loaded up my WSA Anywhere security on my LG Optimus phone and have been feeling very safe ever since. However, I have had a few things come up all together in a clump and I need some input from you tech savvy folks here if you have a moment to help a remedial techie here. First, I was texting with a client two days ago when all of a sudden my screen went dark and I got a message that said 'Unfortunately Google Search has stopped'. Since all I do is check me emails when I get the 'ding' notification, and send text messages like a fiend, I really don't go on line and do any searches or anything like that AT ALL, so i was surprised that Google Search was doing anything on my phone. It took away my keyboard so that I could receive and read emails and texts but I c
I have seen a number of tickets in our support system of people being unable to download browsers. In fact its due to to Webroot blocking 3rd party toolbar bundled versions of the browsers. [u][b]Always make sure you are downloading directly from the Vendor and not a 3rd party[/b][/u]. Be aware that the top results in a search page can be paid for advertisments and thus may not be the vendor. In the image below I have done a search using well known search provider. Note that in this case the first result was directly from the vendor (Mozilla) but as you start to go down the search results its gets a bit unclear. To the left of the screen shot I am showing the open file -security warning alert on two versions of Firefox that I have downloaded. Note the top left one has a Publisher: [b]Mozilla Corportation[/b], the bottom one [b]100Blogs SL[/b] is a toolbar wrapped version.The File with the Mozilla Corporation was downloaded from the vendors website (the 1st link in t
