Dear all

 

Hi everyone, I just discover my passion to solve things on my own and I want to share something as a beginner.

 

So, the action center just showed the notification of Windows auto update. At that time, I thought it's just some usual stuff. But I was really exhausted from looking too much infos about handling my computer condition, which I've slept enough for two days! As I said, I am really passionate and determined at least for now. So, long story short I mindlessly clicked the notification and it displayed the summary. And then I saw this: Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tools update 12 Jan 2017

 

WHAT?! I was so curious that I browsed and searched this product immediately. It is FREE! Since I expect no one knows solving windows 10 computer problem than Microsoft its own, I immediately download and I'm scanning now. Before every scan I've done showed no files infected and here this Microsoft detected 2 files infected. I'm thrilled... which is inappropriate because no one in their right minds wanted to see files infected. But anyway the scan is running actually and I'm just typing this essay because I have nothing to on my laptop and I need a place to express my new found(maybe obnoxious) passion.

 

Thanks for reading!

Roy

Yes, Microsoft has had this for a few years. You should get the update every month automatically.

Hi, thanks for your sharing. I am a late bloomer and ignorant sometimes...

Now that I think more about it, it seems Microsoft has done a big step to provide a quite user-friendly tool for general purposes of Malware removal and should be supported although in my case, the removal was unsuccessful....but I hope to the see the day that (if not already) every tools Microsoft provides with in the blueprints that would be enough to cover and help us in the near future, sorry about my ideal thinking

 

Btw, How-to Geek looks to me a really nice, well-informed, detailed website, I'll consider staying and visit while I can, thanks!
