    Of course I meant Bated. A silly typo.

    Or perhaps I meant badger.

    I trust you don't mean Widows, I'm no expert but had it done here 2 years back.

    The PC shop opp Greenwing and a bit to the left will put there disc on a laptop for a few baht, the sales girls are cluelss but the geek in the backroom will do it overnight c100-150 baht
    Do specify if you dont want all the Thai games software etc


    or the blokey in Ban Hat Krai half way from the Temple to the traffic lights on N side can sell you a genuine one for real price I think 12900 last time I checked, he advised me not to download hacks as virus risk, I'm sure Harry or a real expert will be along soon enough
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    The shop opposite Greenwing sacked it's 2 best blokes, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, last year, unfortunately. Since then they don't seem able to fix anything.
    The bloke on the left towards the bridge simply says "We'll send it to CR" for which he charges 800 before even looking at it.
    I'm a bit out of options at the moment, hence the question.
    Thanks anyway.

    Sorry to highjack the thread but is it recommended that with Windows 10 I've no need to install an antivirus being as it has 'Windows Defender'? Go easy I'm fooking useless regarding computers. A simple 'yes' or 'no' will do.

    That's why I was advised by a knowledgeable American friend, I am know very little so I'm sure someone more expert will be along.I think its counter productive to have more than one malware scanner but I may well be corrected. Apart from this and my music I don't do any fancy stuff on PCs.
    Obviously security is a big thing
    Some folks want best graphics for gaming or porn or skype I don't even know where camera is on mine so I'm content since I got a classic tile menu installed and last update took under 20 mins.

    If near a Uni I'd ask a person in IT dept

    download Malware Bytes, turn off the Real Time Protection and just run it once a week or so. Leave the Defender for real time protection. Good to run ADWcleaner from time to time too.

    TBH yes.

    Most antivirus these days are shit, including the paid ones.

    Everyone whinges about Windows 10 collecting data, but most of it is from the "approved" antivirus packages. The sneaky c u n t s are getting it all free.

    Although they won't admit it.

    I've used Windows 7 all the time and I'm accustomed to it. My computer went a bolluxs tuther day and I couldn't find anyone to put 7 back on. I had to have Win 10 installed and I'm finding it okay. Cost me 300 Baht.

    Wrong. Most of the well known AV are all better than windows defender. Pragmatic if I was you I would go with bitdefender free. It is consistently ranked amongst the top, uses little system resources and generally leaves you alone unless it catches something. Also you will want the free version of malwarebytes that you should run yourself once a week to look for nasty bugs.

    Have just been reading about 'Windows Defender'. It seems it switches itself off automatically if another AV is fitted anyway.

    Our pick for best antivirus software, Avira counts, as do most other major brands including BitDefender, AVG, Kaspersky and more. Once you install those applications, Windows Defender will disable itself. In other words, Microsoft doesn't really care which antivirus program you use, but you have to use something.

    Windows Defender is a lot better than it was. What do you think all that telemetry is that Microsoft collects?

    I'm betting loads of it is stuff that the other A/V companies are reporting and fixing.

    Your guess is as good as mine is. This article explains it pretty well...

    You might get more answers if you stop trying to be smug and just call it the latest Windows 10 update.

    No it isn't, it's called Windows 10 Update.

    And Microsoft call it:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...get-the-update

    Stop being a dick.

    Having a problem installing / running the Samsung Kies program on my Windows 10 OS. Seems to be a compatibility issue. Anyone else experienced this?
