Windows 10: should I be concerned about "Don't recognize this activity?"
should I be concerned about "Don't recognize this activity?"
I just got a message from firstname.lastname@example.org that concerns me. It occurred about 90 seconds after an Apple update to my iPhone. See the image. It shows "Windows" as current user. I don't recognize the IP address but it may be the address of the Verizon tower?
Of course I know the stock answer is to change all of my passwords but that's a real pain.
Should I be concerned?
Did you sign in at that time? If not, be concerned. Similarly if the location does not relate to you.
They don't always get the location right, specially on a desktop. I would change your password anyway. Use a password generator and generate a random password.
Location is usually your ISP's with ethernet; much more accurate with Wifi.

I have two DVD-RW/CDR drives that will no longer recognize valid discs since the latest Windows 10 update. I upgraded from Win 7 just over a month ago, and they seemed to work fine. The system information shows that they are good drives, but they...
noted repeating activity on drive monitor and looked into task manager to check it out. The windows processes "antimalware service executable", "services" and "microsoft windows search indexer" keeping cpu activity in the low 20's percent range.
