    I use openSUSE, but for Windows I just use the built in Windows Defender. It seems like between Windows Defender and just a little common sense, that is all I really need. Never been infected, knock on wood.

    Hi Rocky,
    Thanks for replying.
    The biggest problem with Windows is the constant interruption of pop-ups in one form or another. Switch to other websites and so on. That is one of the reasons for leaving Windows years ago. I will probably only use it for my drafting; little else.
    I did a VM for Ubuntu. However my ext4 hd's do not show up - 2 x 1tb internal and 1 external 250 gb hd.
    Any ideas on how to find them when using a VM?

    You need to spend some time setting up your Windows because in over two years of using Windows 10 I have seen zero pop ups.
