    Should a bug come along, or an update craps out your system you pull out your Image and restore your system.

    There are some strategies you can use around your data. Lots of members keep on separate partition making restoration of system less complex.

    Hi Ken,
    Thanks for sending me the reflection programme. I will have to print the instructions, sit, read and digest and decide whether my ancient brain will be able to cope with it all. As an aside, I have just finished a long and protractive conversation with the Microsoft Chat line chap who was very helpful and pleasant, just like you... Unfortunately he was unable to answer my question which was "Does Windows10 version 1709 provide Wi-Fi protection like other versions. He said it was a good question and that he did not know the answer however, he has documented my question and it is being passed on to the engineering department who he swears will send me an e-mail answering my needs. No one seems to know the answer and Norton want me to pay $39-50 for their VPN software. I am going to wait and see what MS have to say before I spend any money and will keep you posted. Interesting that an MS employee doesn't know the answer don't you think?

    Make sure you are connected via SSL at all times and you are safe. No need to panic. WiFi is still as insecure as ever.

    Just use "Smart HTTPS" or "HTTPS Everywhere" extensions for your browser.

    What if I get to a web site that only has http:www etc etc. I don't understand being connected to SSL, is this something I have to turn on, on my computer please??

    HTTPS is an extension and will try to connect you to the secure site if possible. That is the address that starts with https

    Not all sites use this, https.

    When you connect to bank or bank (and lots of others, like this forum), look at the address. It starts with HTTPS.

    If not secured what you are keying and receiving is sent back and forth to servers in clear next. The WPA encrypts the data between your PC and Router.

    Ron you are safe. Use a good AV, don't do banking on free public hotspots, keep your software patch and your passwords unique.

    That depends, do you mind, if someone sees, that you are reading recipes or something like that?
    Payments and logins on serious webpages are always done via SSL, so they can not be eavesdropped.
