    Thanks for confirming what I hoped was the case.

    Cheers!

    Here is a superb .PDF that contains up to date (RS3 / 1709 / Fall Creators Update) which covers literally all Windows 10 security related details ("meat and potatoes") in one nice, though rather large, document.

    Paying for antivirus software is mostly BS

    Great share, @remco8264 :thumb:

    Fantastic insights in Windows 10 security.
    I have been enjoying the Microsoft Ignite sessions all week as they became available.
    And from your list, I see that several sessions that wasn't uploaded yet last time I looked, has now become available.

    Time to get a cup of coffee and a sandwich, and enjoy those sessions also. :)

    Is it possible to apply the PUP registry tweak on the Windows 7 version of WD or it's only for W8 and above?

    It is possible with Windows 7 and Microsoft Security Essentials, but the tweak is a different registry setting. You can find it HERE on my site.

    I use Bitdefender Total Security 2018, I would always use a third party AV on my machine, I don't like Defender, and I don't trust it enough:)

    "Very"? With 13 FalsePositives? Are you serious? It is the highest value after F-Secure....

    I'd also add that I couldn't be happier with the official release of the W10 1703 CU, earlier today :thumb:
