    I hate Windows Defender. I hate being forced to use things I don't wanna use. I wish there was a way to completely uninstall it, but no. Microsoft wants to force things on people, so I just the Group Policy Editor and completely disable the darn thing.

    Thanks NMI, I don't know how missed that. Just old age I guess.

    vgkfan83 I can not ever remember Microsoft doing anything that actually benefited the customer. Right now Win 10 browsers (other than Edge and IE) are giving me fits. Chrome will NOT boot any page other than the home page. I play games on Firefox (in Facebook) on my Windows 7 pc, but for some ungodly reason the games will NOT load up on my Win 10 machine.

    I have been working on these issues months and have found NO reasonable fix.
