David Hewison Posted November 3, 2015 Share Posted November 3, 2015 Still running Win 10 on 3 PCs and laptop. No issues and not one hangup to date. I also use Malwarebytes - works like a dream - and very fast. Stops a lot of stuff dead it it's tracks ( a brief popup appears). I have to say I'm also still very impressed, it's an absolute pleasure to use Win 10. So far, no glitches running Ps CC, Lr, Id or anything else. I updated the minister of finances laptop last week end - she hates technology, but loves win 10 too, even though she was against the update Having said that, last week i caught a virus.. not a cough.. a computer virus. I've had them before, but nothing like this. It completely took over my PC, as if someone had logged in remotely. It deleted data, and changed the permission settings on all of my server folders so that I couldn't access them.. anywhere. Nasty stuff. I don't know where I got it, and no, I wasn't looking at porn. My network is tighter than a fish's backside. Anyway, it took 2 full days to get rid of it, then another half day to reset all the permissions on my server folders, talk about tedious. I had backups of all data lost, so that wasn't a drama. Oh, and i use Malwarebytes too.. as well as the inbuilt defender that ships with win10. Somehow Malwarebytes missed it, I love the software, it's looked after me for years. Nothing is perfect though - I'm not sure whether it was a fault with malwarebytes, or a security flaw in win10.. but whatever it was - it got in. Interestingly, Malwarebytes picked it up in a scan, but couldn't kill it. I eventually used SpyHunter 4 and that did the trick, but it took over 10 scans and some manual rummaging in the registry. I don't want to put anyone off win 10, because for all I know it may still have happened if i was using win 7.. I have no idea. Moral of the story - run regular virus scans, make sure win 10 is up to date (although it does a great job of doing that in the background anyway), and backup, back up and back up some more!
