    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    Yes, I'm way, way behind the times on doing my own video, but what with eye stuff going on with both Hubby and me, I haven't had the concentration needed to create anything. Excuses, excuses, excuses . . .

    This morning I came across this on security: Five precautions for avoiding malware when you download and install software | PCWorld

    Hmmm, although I've always been aware of "scanning for malware" I have never done it, mostly because I am very careful. And because I've never done it, I probably should learn how. Ya think?

    Today's assignment (talk about yer pushy . . . ) is to create a video showing how to scan for malware.

    Seriously, I don't even know if it's doable, but you guys have done wonders so far, and I think this would be a good one.

    I'm sorry, Kari, but I can't. My eyes won't allow it until things get better.

    Wynona,

    You're doing it correctly, actually

    The only time you really "must" scan, is when you first install a new Anti Virus or want to check if something might of been missed, and lastly if you want a second opinion there is always Anti Malware scanners too. As long as you keep it updated and Real Time Protection is on, it's doing it's job checking every download before it get's on your system, and PUPs are the user's fault, because even they need permission.

    Your antivirus is always running in the background. Itís monitoring the processes running on your system, ensuring that no malicious processes are running. Whenever you download a new file or open a program, your antivirus quickly steps in, examining the file and comparing it to viruses before allowing it to run. If you download a virus, your antivirus will notice without you needing to scan anything. For example, try downloading the EICAR test file ó your antivirus will leap into action and deal with the file without any manual scans needed.
