Windows 10 Defender

Windows 10 includes a good malware program called Defender (aka Security Essentials); however, some tests indicate it might not be as good as another solution - Malwarebytes.

I think in previous versions of Windows, Defender would run along side of Malwarebytes, but in Windows 10, Defender is shut off if another malware program is installed.  The previous link ( provides information regarding this fact.  It also mentioned the suggested use of Malwarebyte's Anti-Exploit program (free) as a worthwhile compliment to Defender.

In my system, I'm running both Malwarebytes Anti-Malware AND Anti-Exploit.  Seems to work very well.  Time will tell.  I'm following "howtogeek's" recommendations.

New Season Starting

We'll have the first meeting of the GCRVCUG next Thursday at 9:30 am in the Prickly Pear Room. Now that more of you might be interested in Windows 10; let's do some show and tell on that product. See you there. Oh, last time I checked, the WIFI signal in that room is very strong. Bring your laptops, etc.
