Which is the best antivirus software for Windows 10?
Which is the best antivirus software for Windows 1? italic With the sudden increase in the number of malicious attacks onputers these days it has be extremely important to have an anti-virus installed on Windows. When I heard about a ransomware breakthrough a while back I made all kinds of changes in my Windows 1 PC as well to keep it safe. Installing an anti-virus was the first thing in my mind too. If you do a Google search you would see that there are so many anti-virus software out there. But installing an anti-virus is only half the job. There are numerous other things that you need to consider to keep your system safe. Before you proceed make sure that yourputer is notpromised or corrupted with so many malicious threats. It is always rmended to take a backup of your data in advance. Keep your Windows up to date with all the essential security patches. Read more How to Delete Delete Malwares from Your Computer Windows Defender italic Consider Defender as the native firewall and anti-virus application in Windows 1. A lot of people underestimate how powerful Defender can be. Just open the application first and make sure it is up to date. From here you can turn on the real-time scanning feature of Defender for a safe browsing experience. Third-party Anti-malware Tools italic Apart from Windows Defender you can also consider some of these anti-virus tools that work well on Windows 1. McAfee Antivirus Protection italic It is one of the oldest and most reliable anti-virus applications out there. It oftenes pre-installed on Windows and would only cost $15 per year. Norton 36 Standard Protection italic For home users I would rmend the Standard version of Norton 36. If you want you can take its family pack and connect it with other applications of Norton as well. Bitdefender Total Protection italic This is by far the most advanced anti-virus tool that I have used and it would monitor your internet activity as well. The only problem is that I found my Windows operating slower after it since it was consuming so much memory in the background. Kaspersky Total Security italic This is a lightweight anti-virus and is mostly rmended for home users who do basic activities like internet browsing on theirputers. Add-on Data Recovery Tools italic Besides having an anti-virus I would also rmend installing a data recovery application on Windows 1. For instance if a virus has corrupted your storage and made some files inaccessible then you would need a recovery tool. A lot of times users format their drive to remove any malware from it. In this case also a data recovery application (like Recoverit) would help you. Best.
Should I change to Windows 10 from dos?
As others here have pointed out you haven't stated how old your hardware is. If it is too old it may not be upgrade-able. Answers can be found here ( When is your Windows PC too old and when is it time to buy another? ) and here ( How long can aputer last before it gets too old? ). But to my mind if theputer is not too old and if you are flexible enough to think this way consider instead to install Linux. Why Linux? Windows products have a tendency to demand the latest-and-greatest hardware. The only three versions of Windows that are available -- and still supported -- are Windows 8 8.1 and 1. Now having just scanned Google (Google Is Your Friend ) I found this ( Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files) from this site How to Download Windows 7... the Legal Way ). Of course the problem there is if you don't have a Windows 7 key you can't upgrade so you have to go online and buy a license from Microsoft. Before you go leaping off trying to download it -- and your DOS box won't handle this believe me so you'll have to find someone with a Windows Linux or Mac OSXputer and who trusts you to do a download without messing up their system. You have to make sure your system meets the minimum standards for Windows 7 which can be found here ( Windows 7 system requirements - Windows Help ). If you can't even meet those standards forget about upgrading to Windows. Windows 1 is free to upgrade if you have Windows 7 8 or 8.1 You canpare the Win7 system requirements to these for Ubuntu 15.4 here ( WilyWerewolf - Ubuntu Wiki ). And although the system requirements are similar you'll note that Ubuntu requires significantly less hard drive real estate. Ubuntu 13.4 LTS (LTS = long-term support) is still supported and will be until April 218. It is significantly less demanding on system requirements to wit ( System Requirements for Ubuntu Linux 13.4 versioin ) 1 GHz Pentium 4 Processor 512 MB of RAM 5 GB HDD Space (Minimum) DVD Drive or Combo Drive. As you can see that's quite a significant differencepared to what Windows *SEVEN* requires and Win7 isn't supported whereas Ubuntu 13.4 LTS still is. And since you are very used to using themand line in DOS Linux's BASH shellmand line interface will be very easy to learn. But the GUI is VERY accessible especially in Ubuntu 13.4 running GNOME fallback. Some big selling points about Linux vs Windows are (1) Linux software is usually free to download and install (2) Linux can be infected by fewer than 5 viruses or malware whereas Windows can be infected by over 1.5 million (the counts vary but for Windows systems they're astronomical ( The malware numbers game how many viruses are out there? | ZDNet )) (3) Linux is vastly more stable than Windows (4) Opinion To mess up a Linux box you need to work at it; to mess up your Windows box you just need to work on it writes SecurityFocus columnist Scott Granneman. italic ( Linux vs. Windows Viruses ) Instructions for installing either OS can be found here ( John Weintraub's answer to I have installed Ubuntu on C drive. Now I want to remove it and install Windows on the same drive. What should I do? answer aid 18858723 ) and here ( John Weintraub's answer to How do you install windows 8.1 on a ubuntu machine? answer aid 1863857 ). The instructions aren't perfectly suited to help you install either Windows or Linux but can be a helpful ge. I'd suggest that if you install Linux on a thumb-drive as I ex above you may want to boot your oldputer from the thumb-drive. (Instructions for doing so can be found here ( John Weintraub's answer to How do I boot from USB on a Windows 1 hp? answer aid 18912768 )). If yourputer does not support USB-boot-support you may have to install Linux (one ISO per disk -- no options on that) on a CD or DVD disk. Then once you have successfully booted the LiveCD select try without installing just to see if Linux runs on yourputer. If not go buy a new machine. Enough said; best of luck. Thanks for the A2A
What is something unexpected you originally would have laughed at, or claimed you didn't need, that you now can't live without?
A personalputer. I worked for an Apple dealer in 1988. The day I was hired I had the firstputer I ever had that was for my exclusive use. I could even take it home! I wasn thrilled- what was I going to do with it? In those days Apple wanted dealers to be small stores that offered training and repair plus advice on which software would be best from the selection we offered (you didn download software then; it came in a box on several floppy disks). It worth noting that even simple software could cost in the $1s and installing it wasn easy so to do something beyond basic WP there was the expense of the software. We had trained sales and support people to help customers with all this new stuffing at them. We were a boutique kind of store nothing like today free-for-all. Sales were booming. I was the marketing manager and it was my job to create all our print ads and mailers. I quickly saw how my typing improved on an electronic keyboard so I saw Word as a good thing. But desktop publishing was in it in its infancy and I found my skills in traditional paste-up work much faster and better than anything I could do with PageMaker or Quarkxpress. I bought and put a drafting table in my office. Management seeing me use abination of the DTP software and what I knew best cried were selling a lie! and insisted I go to an intensive session of classes in Quark which I did. Between my better understanding of the software and improvements in that software I was eventually turning out all print material with the software alone. What really made me convinced I would never own aputer was the cost. The most basic Mac setup (drive and monitor) was well over $1k. For perspective that was a generous downpayment on a house then! I was saving for a house and I could not imagine going without a house in favor of aputer. Plus for your work to be shared or seen you needed a printer. Printers (and scanners) were insanely expensive and the scan quality was miserable and the software buggy. Color printers were out of the question. Again no internet so a printer was pretty essential if you wanted anyone else to see what you created on theputer. As bad as it is (and it bad) Microsoft Windows and the non-proprietary programming made personalputing within everyone budget. Once Microsoft broke through this barrier Apple had to radically change the way they handled retail sales so they allowed the big box electronic stores of the day to carry Macintoshputers. That spelled instant death for our store in 1993 Circuit City and Best Buy were so huge we couldnpete. While I had always worked on a Mac I found on the non-Mac platform I could have a manageableputer and decent printer for well under $3! I wanted a Mac but while their prices fell it wasn worth it. I still have my first putty-colored metal desktop in the back of a closet somewhere it must weigh 5 lbs. I bought the laptop Im writing this on an HP Pavillion about 4 years ago for around $5 and (a wireless and really crummy Im replacing it) color printer for $7 (yes the ink is more costly). I bought both on Amazon. And I bought a $25 CoziDesk which has me typing this from bed! It probably my 5th laptop. I always thought I need a desktopputer again but why? If you told my 1988 self I have endless almost-free and free software programs to use in a 15u233puter with the ability to connect with almost everyone in the world a printer that prints wherever I am in the house (and in color) for less than $1 PLUS be in my bed all cozy checking messages on a phone the size of some playing cards italic while watching on-demand TV with a 48 inch flat screen I would have laughed my head off. Besides unless I was doing work what on earth would I use aputer for?
