how do i get windows defender to scan and clean my computer..
windows defender and MacAfee
Can you run windows defender with MacAfee? right now I'm only running MacAfee and letting windows defender run periodically run for virus scans
Yes I'm helping a friend to get her computer virus free I cleared 127 on her computer with malware bytes .I also ran a scan and it found like 1 or problem's I fixed then. The other problem is when she opens a browser 3 browsers pops up and the window of the browsers is like not fully open it show her desk top I maximized it but then it just made it littler. she is running windows 7. she has a lot of things needs done she hasn't done anything in 4 years because she didn't know she need to so I'm fixing her computer. can I update her windows to windows 10? she doesn't have any virus protection so I'm trying today to get her some. I told her if she shuts her computer off nothing can run to protect her. So I'm teaching her to just put it to sleep that way updates can still run plus virus protector can run. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.
Which Microsoft Defender feature(s) really annoys you?
I'm looking forward to know your reactions regarding the annoying feature(s) of Microsoft Defender, if you have. The one I hate is Defender scanning the dead virus files which have been removed, but cached in Protection History. I had to deal with a stupid PUP for 3 months because Defender constantly gave me fake alerts regarding the dead thing. :(
All of my devices crashed simultaneously. Help please???
This seems like paranoia but it is true. Had 5 devices crash at the same time August 5, 2020. Went to different town and purchased new phone. Set phone up and it new who I was and had already had update with malware waiting. As well as being controlled by third party. The sophistication was unbelievable. The possible outcomes are nightmarish. Lost all contacts, passwords simultaneously. This is my last hope. Hacked Edge AND Hacked Google
1)Is the windows defender will scan & protect the external disc and USBs when connected. 2)Before downloading any file from internet is the windows defender will scan for the virus? 3)I want to close the services of McAfee Life safe from my laptop which was preloaded while purchasing one year back, How to remove that and how to activate the windows defender in place of McAfee. Like MacAfee windows defender will provide the intimations like how they are performing by protecting the PC from number of trackers etc.
Whenever I open the Microsoft Edge browser, which has the MSN homepage set - and before I've even clicked on anything else - a nasty trojan/virus (Perfstringbackup.tmp) installs, then my firewall is disabled, and then a fake Windows update downloads more malware onto my PC. How is this all possible?
Friends Email Problem
I have a friend in the "Bible Thumpin" South that I get email from. Lately though I've been getting emails from her name but with a totally fictitious email address. I alerted her to the problem and she said that she would get with her tech people down there an have them look into it. Last week, I got another one, but this one was to me at an email address that I only used for less than a month when I first when on Facebook to get info on out upcoming class reunion. It was an oops moment using that email address and I changed it within a short time. That was telling me that whoever is spoofing her if using her Facebook account friends. Agree? I again alerted her. Received an email back and she replied that her HP guys couldn't tell her why that was happening, and that no one else had said anything. She's running Windows 10 and has her email @Yahoo.com. "Light bulb" going off... She needs to call Yahoo or Verizon not HP! So besides the usual virus scans yadda yadda. Anything else I can have check.... More minds are better than one. Thanks All
