Hi all, :)


I am a 19-year-old Pre-U college student from Penang, Malaysia about to graduate soon. I am going to university next year. 


I am glad to find out Bleeping Computer and join this community. I came across this website while searching for malware removal tools, and after wandering here for days, I decided to register as a member. 


Before I leave, I have some questions about dual-booting CentOS and Windows 10 on my laptop. Should I start my new topic at the Windows 10 subforum or should I start my new topic at the Linux/UNIX subforum?


Thanks for the kind help. I hope to learn from the experts here and contribute back to the community some days later.  



"When the product is free the real product is YOU."

An offer of free anti-virus or anti-malware software is essentially a marketing techniqueBottom line...it's all about generating revenue and finding new and creative ways to do so. As such, users may have to deal with occasional nagging pop-ups, nuisance advertising and prompts to upgrade to the paid version or purchase other products.

By using such free programs, you are essentially agreeing to the terms of the vendor's service which includes those annoying pop-ups and ads.

Welcome to BC !


As for your question about dual-booting I would raise it in the Linux section. Apart from the fact that they are more accustomed to the idea of dual booting there I believe the general opinion is that Windows should be installed first, then Linux.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
