Windows Defender is totally fine, when you know, what you are doing online. I haven't had a single piece of malware on my machines, since the first version of Windows Defender and that was a very long time ago. In addition it was somewhat bad in detecting malware then, but has very much improved over the years.

Windows 11 KB5010414 accidentally hides Start Menu, Microsoft responds windowslatest.com | Feb 28, 2022

Although the Start Menu is not flexible in Windows 11, it still allows users to quickly access the installed apps. The Start menu isn’t broken in Windows 11 KB5010414 update, but users have reported that the menu automatically hides when they hover over icons pinned to the taskbar.

 
 

According to Microsoft officials, this is not a ‘bug’. In fact, it is a design feature. Starting with KB5010414, Windows 11’s widgets board is now pinned to the left side of the taskbar and it can be launched when you hover over the icon. This seems to be causing a conflict where Start opens and then closes immediately. Not so sure new features is so much better than their self introduced bugs @Mr. Fox @Ashtrix 😀

 

Windows 11 KB5010414 breaks the Start menu
It seems the new Windows 11 update isn’t just messing with the Stat menu. Some users have also been experiencing issues with the taskbar where it will either not load or appear blank/blank.

What are these users doing to their system all the time? I cannot reproduce anything of the above on my machine, but this isn't news for me. I see these reports, have a laugh and move on. But Microsoft has the obligation to address these "bugs", even if it affects only 0,001% of the users. And they get bashed for it. Pathetic.

I hope you know why Microsoft don’t force optional updates on systems once they are released. Maybe because they know new patches has the bad habit breaks some systems? Don’t put all the blame for screwed up systems on the users.

Windows 11 to use carbon intensity data and schedule Windows 11 updates for when the most renewable energy is available during the day, in your location?  (One of the oddest features I've seen them do.  I don't feel like applying an update is that resource intensive.  Or at least it shouldn't be.)

Microsoft isnt the same company anymore, those days are done. They were many serious bugs with Windows Updates on Windows 10 in the past and its still an issue today. Windows 11 is still brand new and its going to have a lot of bugs in it and this why i always suggested users not to upgrade to a new OS in the first year.

One more reason to avoid Win Defender... Some users have noticed Windows Defender Antivirus has started to (falsely) flag MajorGeeks Windows Tweaks

 

Yep, Microsoft don't want that you try making their OS better/more useful/less tacky. 

 

Rufus 3.18 beta version fixes an ISO to ESP issue. But more importantly, the version brings the "Extended" option that will now help bypass Windows 11 requirements for in-place upgrades too.

Windows Defender is a mess. And yep, an annoying software. Second one within same day. This is the false postive King of all AV software. Dells boatware is pure cancer, but this fused in AV software is on same level. 

 

Defender reports a false positive

Posted on March 3, 2022 at 13:01 CST by Susan Bradley  Comment in the Forums

Gunter Born reports on Borncity.

Microsoft defender is triggering a false positive on Dell laptops specifically on the Dell Support Assist Remediation Service tool.  Don’t panic, it’s not you, it’s them.

 

 

And it seems Microsoft continue as hard they can to create new useless features... And their appetite on users data/privacy have no limits. 

Windows 11: Microsoft wants your credit card data

Posted on 2022-03-05 by guenni

Windows

Is Microsoft eyeing the credit card data of its Windows 11 users in order to identify its users more precisely in the future and possibly charge them with additional fees? The information has been circulating on the Internet for hours: Microsoft has introduced a field for entering credit card data in the new Windows 11 Insider Preview build 22567. This is supposed to allow users to pay for apps and be notified about subscriptions or expiring credit card payments.

Yeah if you are careful defender is not necessary, had it disabled from day one. Most of the programs I use w the net have some sort of built in protection and I dont go to random sites, arent most things in search results already scanned anyways? Shady places are easy to spot by now for the most part.

 

Unfortunately work kinda dictates a lot of junkware I would never use or give any data to. HAD to use MS teams and sign up, I,m not sure why they needed a birthdate but ofc didnt give the real info anyways. Fakebook requires a phone number if you havnt logged in for a while, all for a stupid social site ugh I could go on and on.

I would say AV is like having an airbag in your car. It might help, in some rare situation where you have really screwed up. But it's not a replacement for having safe roads/cars and knowing how to drive properly in the first place.

Honestly, other than the more logical hierarchy of things in the Windows Control Panel, I cannot really identify anything else that I like or think is good about Windows 11. For the most part I think it is an abomination, both functionally and aesthetically.

Just wanted to ask if W11 is actually beta i.e 21H2. I am seeing weird start menu bugs in VBox VM for Win 11 Pro. Start menu hides or disappears mysteriously then comes back. Even lot of the options/settings are missing and "Always show all icons in Tray" is missing fro Win11. Felt more like XP era where we installed 3rd party themes for added functionalities.

21H2 is the final release, it's not beta...  This is just how it is.  😕

(I've gone on about this before but I do believe it was/is a beta quality release and certainly needed more bake time.)

Win 10 will always be in beta. Win 10 as it is today won't be the same at end of life. M$ put a lot work into their new touch friendly OS, but same will it be for the older Win 10 as well.

The HP Hotkey UWP Service is a driver that lets you use the Function key on your laptop keyboard with the F1 – F0 keys to perform certain tasks, such as turning audio volume up and down.

It starts automatically when Windows boots on an HP laptop, and users complain that while in Windows 10 it would take up minimal memory, in Windows 11 it takes up an enormous amount.

Windows 11: The end of the old-school Windows desktop computerworld.com | Today


In the long run, Microsoft wants you to switch to a Desktop-as-a-Service model, and the first steps on this journey may already be in place on your conventional Windows PC . You know it as Windows 11.

 

With all this in mind, when I look at recent Windows 11 changes, I see clear signs that Windows 11 is the Trojan horse bringing WaaS to everyonewhether you want it or not.

 

Wait? Didn't Microsoft say it was only going to be adding features to Windows 11 once a year? Ahem, yes it did. But Microsoft fibbed. Windows 11 will get Feature, Web, and Online Service Experience Packs whenever Microsoft wants to update them. 

 

Look at this beauty bro @Ashtrix @Mr. Fox Microsoft use all their tricks in the book. Win 10 seems as the last option from Microsoft. 

 

Why you should install win 11.... Yooo have too much freetime and ther days is too long..

The Micro$lop Morons are their own worst enemy. The reason Winduhz is all messed up, and has been since W8.X, is because they keep adding crap they call features. Windows 8 was released to manufacturing on August 1, 2012 and that marked the start of their decline. I haven't had a lick of respect for them since. They need to just roll back all of the idiotic stuff they have done over the past 10 years and then just leave it the hell alone and stop screwing with it.

"It's not a bug, it's a feature" (c) Microsoft

 

I was wondering what the heck they're calling Desktop As A Service.

Quote

Microsoft rents you preconfigured Windows 10 PCs. Microsoft, instead of you, gets to deal with supporting those annoying Windows 10 feature updates, security patches and other fixes. All this, plus overall PC management, for one low per-user monthly subscription fee.

 

I don't know about you guys, but if I read between the lines, to me it sounds like this: 

Microsoft, instead of you, gets to install all the annoying Windows 10 feature updates that you never wanted, spyware can't be disabled anymore, and other fixes that you shouldn't touch with a 10ft pole get pushed without you even noticing it. All this for a monthly subscription fee.

 

Umm, thanks, but no thanks... even if the payment was going the other way around, from them to me.

Eh, I've heard other people suggest that Microsoft will start charging a monthly fee for Windows before.  I don't buy that.  Microsoft knows that general consumers won't pay money to use Windows anymore.  If they charge for an upgrade, the vast majority of people just won't upgrade (until they buy a new PC).  That's why Windows 10 and 11 were released as free upgrades.  Also, PC sales are declining, as a combination of the facts that you just don't need to upgrade your PC as often anymore, and more and more people are just turning to their phone.  So, they've turned to finding ways to monetize Windows users to keep a revenue stream coming in.

 

The cycle sort of reinforces itself now.  As they roll out more monetizing features, they need people to install them, so the upgrades have to continue to be free for "general consumers".

 

Not that they won't milk money directly out of business users.  These days I imagine most medium to large businesses are making yearly payments for their Windows 10 Enterprise deployments.  They're trying really hard to get people to move to their "cloud" offerings for Office/Exchange/SharePoint/etc., and that allows them to charge monthly rather than one time for the software.  And they've even slashed the support timeframe for Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC and Office (perpetual license versions) from ten years down to five, so that it's harder to sit on one version for a long period of time.

 

I don't necessarily blame them.  Microsoft does whats in its own business interest.  I just wish they'd release a "cut the crap" version (basically Windows LTSC for ordinary people).  Heck, I'd pay extra for it.

Well, it looks like Microsoft is finally adding tabs to File Explorer.  There's a genuinely good improvement.  (Currently in preview builds, but only as a "hidden" feature not enabled by default.)

Eh, I've heard other people suggest that Microsoft will start charging a monthly fee for Windows before.  I don't buy that.  Microsoft knows that general consumers won't pay money to use Windows anymore.

 

Yeah, I don't believe anyone will pay subscription fee for Windows, apart from maybe corporate users that don't have a choice. But what is mentioned in the article that I linked above, is "Microsoft rents you preconfigured Windows 10 PCs". To me this sounds like they want to supply hardware with pre-installed Windows OS for a fee, rather than simply adding a subscription fee for only the OS.

I just cant bring myself to load up Win11. By 2025 when win10 ends M$FT will be well into win12 and maybe by some FAT chance it will maybe be better than 11 but not worse I hope. But I totally skipped over 8 + 8.1 went from win7 to win 10 and have accepted 10 as not bad. I am deffinetly happier with 10 than what I am seeing all these reports of win11
