Still on Win 7 and using SpybotAnt-Beacon, and manually check for security updates. Earlier this week I started getting a notification that Malwarebytes was blocking an attempt inbound to run some Windows processes. Strange. Never got that before. Happened 3 times late Monday and Tuesday. Then it stopped. Later that day I rebooted the computer and got "This is not a valid copy of Windows" which it is. Rebooted and that returned to verified. I started scanning, checking, and spent hours going through everything with in-depth scans. Nothing. Clean. After seeing this I wonder if Microsoft has been the culprit.

It is really sad that one has to spend time and lots of efforts on soemthing that should just work and help, instead of preventing a company to screw up a paid-for, legally and working operating system.

At work I have Windows 10 on my machine and it's not too bad to work with.

At home I have Windows 7 on my machine and my wife's machine. Still prefer that version.

Probably because that's what we're used to now. I just don't like the tablet like interface of 8 and now 10.

Just my preferences.

I switched to Windows 10 on all devices as i don't have any issues with it and did not like Windows 8/8.1. Plus the focus of protecting Windows OS from malware shifts to the newer OS both on the part of Microsoft as well as anti-virus providers. In addition to that I'm likely to find fewer complications when adding any new hardware in 2017

Just for the record, that, like most of the scare articles about Windows 10, is largely incorrect.

Here's an article that actually corrected itself, albeit in small print at the bottom:
http://betanews.com/2016/11/24/microsoft-shares-windows-10-telemetry-data-with-third-parties/

Here are some details on how articles like that get traction:

Likewise switched all my pcs/laptops to Windows 10 to make it simpler and prepare for the future as eventually all previous versions of windows will stop being supported. Windows 10 is easy to use .As for the privacy MS can milk all the data they want I don't use my pcs for personal stuff. The only annoying things are the updates that can ruins games that used to work fine before.

So no bills, taxes, investments or work activity. Then, games get broken.

Pretty sure this covers just about all I have ever used a computer for but maybe I'm alone.

Indeed we call blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of the perseverance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, because “the Lord is compassionate and merciful. James 5:11

11 years ago, my bank's computer's were hacked and I had to change everything, my bank accounts, credit card, ATM card etc. I learned the lesson. If a bank cannot protect itself against hackers how can I? I stopped using my pc or laptops for important stuff so if I am ever hacked, phished whatever there's nothing of value they can have from me. Just look at Yahoo, 2 billion accounts hacked and they informed their clients only 3 years after the fact....

I've been using Windows 10 ever since the free upgrade and I love it, actually. I mainly use it for web browsing (I'm in a "phase" of wanting to put together the same type of Ludwig blue sparkle double-bass drum kit that Elvis's former drummer, Ronnie Tutt, used from the Fall of 1970 to August 21, 1974.

I'm hoping that I can accomplish this feat before the year is out. I've wanted a kit like that for over thirty years.

A friend in Texas put together a kit like I'm describing and I have pics.

Here's they are:

Here's an article on personal tech security in general:
http://www.zdnet.com/article/simple-security-step-by-step-guide/

And linked in that article is another one specific to securing Windows 10:

Wow! I accidentally clicked this thread and saw that beautiful drum set! thumbsup



The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
