Actually those 1,000 problems happened on my laptop when I installed Malwarebytes to try to fix a Windows 10 update problem.
My desktop, where I'm having this Security Alert problem, had zero problems found when I ran Malwarebytes.
As you can imagine changing my email from Yahoo, which is my main email, would pose some problems but it is
something to consider. But then it becomes another problem that wasn't fixed on my computer - which can be
I'm still wondering what you think - good or bad - about taking advantage of the Spectrum offer to install
McAfee Security Suite.
If I do reinstall Windows 10 - and I do have the disk that came with the PC - is there anything I should be
aware of to do or not do during the installation or is it pretty straight forward?
McAfee , to put it bluntly , sucks out loud ! If you install another antivirus , Avast . Avast can do a boot scan , & their detection rates are consistently high . Windows Defender , while improving , doesn't perform as well as Avast . I think Drac is correct , & that this is a piece of malware/virus that has buried itself in the boot files , & for whatever reason , does nothing until you decide to open your email . Before doing a boot scan , I would , at least temporarily , disable Windows Defender , & turn off/delete any system restore points . I say that , because some viruses & malware like to "reside" in system restore . A switch from Yahoo email would probably be a good idea as well . As for a Windows reinstall , if you can , back up any important files (documents , pictures,etc.)beforehand . The process is pretty straightforward .
