    Not every update that exists for your OS applies to you. Hence, smart ignore.
    In fact, it is not recommended to install EVERY update that exists, as it can degrade performance and/or cause instability.

    They have chinese services and online advertisements currently not available to international users.
    Their products are not payware/trialware/moneyware, but additional services and ads do help them.

    I've just installed the updated 360 TS v6.0.0.6002 for Windows 10. I'm still not impressed with the Speedup function, and prefer 360 Internet Security as an antivirus. But, the Cleanup module is impressive with support for cleaning junk from over 600 programs. Also it found about 10GB to be removed in the windows.old folder, leftover from upgrading to a more recent build of Windows. Windows disk cleanup can also remove this, but most cleanup software doesn't find it.

    I'm going to keep it installed for the cleanup module and for occasional on demand virus scans.

    @roger_m: What is it that you'd like to see improved in the Speedup function?

    It detects way too many startup items and scheduled tasks to be disabled. In my case, there are 25 items it wants to disable, that I want to keep. There is appears to be no ignore list to stop them from being detected on further scans. Even if there was, I would prefer it to be less agressive. Baidu's PC Faster disables startup items too, but it is rare for me to want to keep anything it wants to disable.

    In order to balance between keep more - disable more folks, would it be OK if an ignore list existed for startup items?

    That would be a very good start. But, it's not enough in my opnion. I would never install TS on a customer's computer due to the aggressive nature of removing startup items. But, I have installed PC Faster on a number of computers, as I know it won't remove anything a customer would want to remain loaded at startup.

    But, once again I must say I'm very impressed with the Cleanup module, and the amount of junk it cleans. A good example of this, is that after doing some driver updates with DriverEasy, a scan with TS found 55.6MB in of DriverEasy's cache files which could be cleaned. This is something other cleaning software would miss, as it's not located in the usual temp folders. Other cleaning software focuses more on cleaning usage traces than trying to find more locations of junk files to clean.

    Interesting. I hadn't realized that 'patch up' was OS ignorant. Apart from this Vista laptop, I've had 360TS only on XP PCs and on them, every listed patch has been applied. Maybe it works better on XP?

    Some WU software could/would force every update there is for that OS version. Q360 works by identifying what OS you have, architecture, apllied updates so far, critical and recommended. From time to time you'd receive Mozilla/Java/Flash updates that are critical for fixing vuln holes.
    Relax. It works as intended.

    Not everything you consider critical for startup is actually necessary for other people.
    By turning off major resource hogs during startup, you save nerves, hdd durability and eventual system hang.
    I will talk to people, let you know what I can do.

    What other smart WU software you can recommend? (in case I won't use 360TS) I don't want to install unnecessary updates.

    Then is it a good idea to check "Turn off Windows Update" if I use "360 Patch Up"?

    Thank you.

    I use BOTH MS WU and 360 Patch Up. Why? They are the safest solutions to use. Q360 actually works activelly with MS and reports vuln holes to patch and are MS security partner.
    MS WU is, well, from Microsoft for Windows, so.... They know best how to deliver updates.
    Having both on will ensure you have the fastest and latest fixes [whichever prompts first from these two].

    2009 has been a total of 68 360 times by the Microsoft Security Bulletin Acknowledgements

    By convention, Microsoft also will release a patch on each announcement date will open for vulnerability discovery and remediation to contribute to organizations or individuals to thank, has the world's big four "white hat Legion," said HP's ZDI platform, Google, 360 and Palo Alto Networks Thanks month standings together "refresh." Which, ZDI vulnerability platform this month, Microsoft reported 19 vulnerabilities, Google reported vulnerabilities 10, 360 reported vulnerabilities 5, the US security company Palo Alto Networks found three vulnerabilities, four bodies found in Microsoft vulnerabilities accounted for two-thirds of the amount. In addition, another Chinese security companies NSFOCUS also this month, Microsoft reported two vulnerabilities, internationally renowned security software maker Symantec and Trend Micro were reports of a vulnerability.

    For security vendors, quickly detect and respond to vulnerabilities is an essential foundation to enhance the protection capability, but also an important manifestation of security vendor security capabilities, such as Google's Project Zero is the Google's top hackers inside composition, whose only mission is to discover, tracking and repair some of the global software security vulnerabilities.Last month, Google and Microsoft about the vulnerability disclosure deadline has been fierce controversy broke out, the fundamental reason lies in the excavation and restoration of vulnerabilities in network attack has occupied a crucial position.
    And Google's Project Zero, as as the largest Internet security companies, 360 have set up a special high level of vulnerability research lab, bringing together a number of the country's top white hat hacker elite. Just five years, the 360 has become the world reported the largest number of vulnerabilities in Microsoft's security software company, far more than some veteran Thanks antivirus giants such as Symantec, McAfee and Kaspersky, the world's leading manufacturers.

    I predict absolutely no problems in that scenario.

    I see the chrome extension includes a shopping tool. Do I need the extension to get protection from malicious sites?

    Have had to uninstall as it stopped a Paragon backup script. I have used 360 before and it has never done that. In fact, the last time I uninstalled it was a month ago when I had an issue with my internet connection. Until then I had been using it for about a year. I'm now using BD free.

    I have no experience with Paragon, I used Acronis. If the script was something like a bat file, then it was in quarantine. Click 'n' restore would fix it, simple.
    If it was a startup process/service, a simple switch from off to on would bring it back in speedup>manual.
    It is recommended to install the extension unless you use 360 Extreme Explorer chrome.360.cn

    Executables and documents is the default monitoring. Would it be better to check 'All files'?

    Awesome.
    Sure it would be better, but expect slight performance degradation. Personally, I don't use "All Files", and so far, so good.

    Someone asked me a while ago about trust/ignore list for checkup/speedup, it is strongly considered and might make it in future builds soon.
    Just to get that task off my list :)

    beyond imagination - why still it doesn't update to newest program version itself ? Yesterday I had manually update it downloading instalation package, since update option was showing I HAVE NEWEST VERSION, WHILE IT WAS NOT. WTF....
