Is there a web page saying the softwares / drivers that can block Windows 10 1809 from showing in the Windows Update?
I know there are some case of Intel drivers and AMD video drivers. But is there a list somewhere to see what can block an update?
What brand of router you would trust more than another? I have to help find one for a relative. I find that my Google Wifi would fit well but it's kinda expansive. The Linksys, D-Link, TP-Link seems the same to me. So could use some recommandations.
After viewing the podcast, I wonder why Amd and Intel are still allowed to sell vulnerable CPUs knowing that their CPUs are very insecure even with the softwares patches and firmware updates.
And why all the big companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Apple and OEMs not suing Intel / AMD for putting their cloud so much at risk?
And what about us? Will it need a good hacker that uses our systems for crypto-mining without our knowledge to do something?
Intel, AMD and Microsoft has to sit down to find a way to design a new CPU that will fix this sh$%@!#$t. At this speed, we will return to the dark age in performance with all the firmware updates that disable every speculative features in the current CPUs.
And I wonder if we should require from Intel / AMD to add a warning sticker on the CPU box like in the tobaco industry :)
Every week there is a new Spectre problem that surface. This is getting scary.
I do not know if it's browser related but on my end, it take near 1-2 minutes to show notifications from the icon on the main page. And sometimes it can take a few days to see the badge saying there are new notifications.
I am alone to see this?
This is very strange to me. I have Windows 10 Pro. I played a bit inside the Security Center and Clicked on the Device Security and then on Core Isolation.
Under the Memory Integrity the is a on button and sadly did turned it on. It asked me to reboot and when I got back, I see this message in red :
"This setting is managed by your administrator."
Weird thing, I cannot turn it off (it's greyed) and my account is of Administrator type.
Why can't I reset that thing? Any one knows? Any fix I can use to reset that?
Uninstalled my 3rd party AV for the 1803 update. They tend to interfere when updating windows.
So decided to uninstall and try Windows Defender and activated the Controlled Access Folder feature that helps against ransomwares.
It seems cool but found annoying things, many own Microsoft executables get blocked. When software that is blocked is known to be safe, it's a pain to add it to the allowed list. I thought Windows Defender would have been more intelligent on this side.
Would have been easy to ask in the notifications area to add a button to help add the software to the list.
Instead you have to drill down the event logs to find Windows Defender and find the blocked event. You have to do this since you don't see the full path of the executable in the notifications area.
After seeing reviews from av-comparative.org and av-test.org. Seem that Windows Defender is starting to compete with other 3rd party AVs.
Microsoft just have to improve scanning performance and I think I would not install another one beside Windows Defender.
Just hope they add that button to help with applications needing protected folders access.
Well, just looked at the Edge browser memory level from Task Manager. Boy, that browser maybe good on battery but that thing eats up memory like no tomorow.
Only have Thurrot.com / Neowin / Youtube and 2-3 extensions and I get to 1gb of ram just for Edge.
Compared to other browsers like Chrome / Opera and Firefox, Edge is a memory monster :)
