"Microsoft Warning-- Install the "Emergency Patch"09-24-2019
Janet Perez of Komando.com under Kim Komando's Emails, Kim is a well know tech guru, put out an email to Kim's subscribers on 09-24-2019 on the above subject and said "Microsoft is telling users to download an 'emergency' out-of-band security patch immediately." Komando further says "the security flaw affects more than 7% of all browser users...running affected version of Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11'. I have an updated Windows 10 computer, and I do use Internet Explorer and Edge, as well as GOOGLE regularly, but I don't know if I should download anything regarding this "Microsoft warning"! I just down's understand what, if anything I should do. My computer has the latest Update from Microsoft. I rely on my installed Malware Bytes Premium protection and Webroot Security, both of which are paid services. I also have Windows Defender doing periodic scanning. I have not been alerted by any of these three security and protection systems that my computer is in any way under attack or been infected. Komando has appended 16 Downloads from which to choose for dong the "emergency patch", however, none of them state in their titles/descriptions that they are for Windows 10? The Article states that the Department of Homeland Security takes the threat serious enough that it is issuing its own "advisory urging the public to get the patch." The Article states: "You can find the patch here (https.//www.catalog.update.microsft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4522007). Further, "from the list, "choose the update that corresponds with the versions of Internet Explore and Windows that you are running." I cannot seem to determine, despite instruction, what version of Internet Explorer I'm running, but if I could, the download list seems not to reference Windows 10 in anyway. COULD ANY OF YOU TECHIES SHOW ME THE LIGHT, AND GUIDE ME SPECIFICALLY AS TO WHAT I SHOULD DO BY WAY OF WHICH IE PATCH I SHOULD DOWNLOAD, IF ANY? I really would appreciate any help and wisdom from you. Thanks! Jim B.

How to speed up your computer?
It finally happened. My computer started loading sloooooooooowly, even settings was a problem to open. I tried disk cleanup as this article suggested: https://community.windows.com/en-us/stories/device-health . It worked. Previously though, I had to add RAM to my setup cause Forza Horizon 3 was stuttering.

Happy about the Surface Duo, unhappy about Android system.
The idea of the Surface Duo is great, The idea of it running Android sucks. I choose to avoid Android/Google/Gmail, et al, when and where ever possible. I don't trust Google at all, and wish to cut ties to them in every way possible. I have chosen to trust Microsoft, this trust does NOT extend to Google. Within the Android operating system(s) I am REQUIRED to have (and use) a Gmail account. Even to download Microsoft apps (Launcher, Edge, Bing, Authenticator). These actions open all access to any of my information, location(s), search histories and any other data that may choose to mine to Google over-lords. I don't trust Google and hoped to use Microsoft as a buffer to their potential evils. The costs, closed system policies, and the guilt by association feelings have a;ways kept my from Apple products. I could never justify Apple when Steve Jobs was alive. Will it be my only choice be to assimilate to the Apple borg, as now guided by Tim Cook? I have never believed that Apple products were worth the costs, fees, and stigma that the brand represents in my mind. I am pleading with Microsoft, to find a better way. As much as I like the concept of the Surface Duo, the Android operating system forces us all toward Google. Who wants that? Please reconsider. What options might I consider, to keep me from accepting all of Google's Crapware and data-mining menace? I ask these things seriously, and don't know what to do.

remove all viruses automatically
I had few viruses in 1903, after I was notified via the action center from Defender. I went to Defender and tried to remove them. Few removed while few did not. It was under quarantine. Even those that were removed, still showed up. I would like it for those viruses that are successfully removed, to just disappear automatically from the screen. I would also like it for all viruses to be able to be removed, not to only be placed under quarantine, thank you.

I like to know why is it when I plug in my USB drive, I get a message like a virus is found (autorun.exe). What can be done to prevent it from happening? According to Windows Defender, it states threat detected. Worm:Win32/Orb!arts. Any ideas on what to do now?

Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts files and folders, preventing access to important files. Ransomware attempts to extort money from victims by asking for money, usually in form of cryptocurrencies, in exchange for the decryption key. But cybercriminals won't always follow through and unlock the files they encrypted.
If you see this kind of message, then don't download or buy the software. What is malware? Malware is a term that is used for malicious software that is designed to do damage or unwanted actions to a computer system.
