SFC scan found corrupt files and has repaired them
hi there: I found a weird issue. This happened since 1903. I don't know if anyone of you has faced it or just me but will show you. It is regards to the sfc scan. When did the scan, the result will state: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Now, I use the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command to fix it. Meaning, to get the sfc scan to say: Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations. Maybe when I shut down the device and restart the device later or use it the next day and do the sfc /scannow, it will say: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. I think there is a bug in the scan. 1st, when my device does not have issues, it should not say, Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. 2nd, when the results states: Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations, it should stay that way, unless there are really corrupt files and has been repaired. Can someone let the team know about it?

Windows security or McAfee
So I’m pretty disappointed in McAfee’s software but Im unsure if I should just use windows security as a main source of protection. I like the fact that I can protect multiple devices that don’t run windows. Like my iPhone XR with mcafee. So I’m holding to start a topic about the pros and cons of windows security compared to mcafee or any other company that provides security for my device. I’m not new to technology but I’m not an advanced user either.
Hello everybody, I recent misplaced my laptop which probably found it's new owner by now. In a classic case of idiotism, I have not turned on the Find my device feature, so I have basically said goodbye to it. I would like to ask for some advice though. Is there anything I can do remotely about my data protection? I have performed the basic stuff like changing passwords to everything I could think off, logging out remotely from gmail and facebook. But how about the data on the laptop itself? Regards Jan

Windows Defender and Windows Security
I am wondering if Windows Defender and other built-in windows security is adequate protection for the computer or if I need to purchase something else like Norton's Security Suite. Any recommendations?

Windows Defender anti-virus
Hi all - 1st time posting, I think. On my new HP computer - Windows 10 - I confirmed that Windows Defender anti-virus is turned on, and uninstalled McAfee trial that came with the computer, as I've read was advised to prevent a Trojan virus sneaking inbetween the 2 protections. TWO QUESTIONS: (1) Is Windows Defender all that should be required, for a casual-use, at-home pc, or do users get a second anti-virus program to back it up? and (2) My (paid) McAfee subscription ran out on my OLD (now only occasionally used) Windows 10 PC. Is there anyway a virus could get into that computer, and transfer over to my NEW pc, since the devises are apparently synced? TIA!
