Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

Chrome is the best browser of the current batch in my opinion.

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

Every time I start W10 it now says it wants to do a restart but clicking on the message they are old ones. My annoyance with W10 on my main PC is rising (my laptop works perfectly) that I semi seriously considered Apple (shock horror).

The main PC is an HP with AMD processor, the Laptop is by Acer and Intel processor. Perhaps I should change the HP one?

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

This can happen when you update or just remove \add programmes what I do is a complete shut down avoid the restart . sometimes that fails as well as seems to think
its a windows update not a software change.

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

I often get asked to join Chrome, I just ignore it. Not sure if it is any better or not.

Give it a go, it is far faster. You may like it or hate it but for me i like the interface compared to Firefox and it has all the addons i use.

What amazes me is there are still people out there using IE!!!

IE works with my screen reader, chrome does not! And chromes built in screen reader is a tad basic.

Firefox is still my browser of choice, sadly there are still sites out there that are optimized to use I.E. and don't work properly using Firefox or Chrome. HSBC is one, my local council is another and several shopping sites my wife uses cause lots of grief if she forgets and starts using Firefox instead of I.E.

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

Did anyone else have an issue Wednesday morning with their Windows 10? Mine kept freezing every time I tried doing something. It worked fine when I got back home early hours of yesterday morning, and still is fine now.

IE is the least "Safe" browser out there!

On another note there is a new version of Win10 coming out for "Real Pro users".

Sorry den, I thought that was obvious to anyone. Security is something as I take as a matter of course and looking back I can honestly say I have never had any malware, virus or rootkit on any of my PC's/laptops since perhaps 2004 (that's when I took the time to learn and take note) and had never used a PC before 2001.

I swear by ESET Smart Security. with the firewall set as interactive. It's a bit of a pain in the beginning as as every attempted connection in or out is flagged until you allow it. Even your browser of choice has to be given permission but you can set it to always allow, same with windows updates and any software you have with auto-updates etc, but once you tell the firewall to always allow it will never ask you again.

Back that up with Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy and you have a pretty good security system. Nothing is ever 100% though and you should always be aware of the links you're clicking on.
