    I’ve checked with Hitman Pro and Zemana.AntiMalware but they can’t find anything

    Hi there @bordi

    Too many people just rely totally on Anti Virus Software rather than using "Brain" !!!! Currently things like malware and viruses are really not much of a problem -- but scams where there's money to be made are getting more sophisticated and big business -- it's virtually impossible to use any sort of anti virus software to defend against these as they are not malware or viruses in any sense of the word.

    What usually happens is that people are tricked into giving away personal data e.g credit card details / bank account numbers, passwords etc or directed to "look alike websites" where money or whatever is transferred to rogue operators. Other scams are links in emails - so never even think of opening an email if you don't know the sender - just delete it - fake Airbnb / other e-commerce "look alike" sites , ransomware demands and so on.

    These scams have one purpose only -- to separate you from your money. Old school hacking is so last century (C20) these days --- WD is good enough as the OS is robust enough now to handle the odd bit of malware you *might* get -- however even if you use the old notorious torrent places like TPB you are very unlikely to end up with an infected computer. People aren't really interested in hacking old "Mom and Pop" machines but definitely are interested in making "a quick buck or two".

    I think in every classroom on the planet as soon as kids can learn to use computers there should be comprehensive lessons on how to spot and avoid scams. It's sad to read often how even well educated adults have lost many 000's of EUR, USD, GBP etc on easily avoided scams.

    Current versions of W10 (19H1 and 20H1) particularly are more than adequately defended against viruses and malware --- protecting yourself against being scammed is a much more important task !!!!

    Cheers

    Excellent analysis of the malware problem @jimbo45. Do you have any ideas as to why ransomware (at least according to media reports ((including 60 Minutes)) ) appears to be on the unswing. I should add though it has never happened to me or anybody else I know.

    One has to wonder whether or not these small incremental improvements are worthe the pain of things like this for the majority of users.

    Windows 10 April 2018 Update approaching end of service
    For Windows 10 devices that are at, or within several months of reaching, end of service, Windows Update will automatically initiate a feature update; keeping those devices supported and receiving the monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health. The Windows 10 April 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1803) will reach end of service on November 12, 2019 for Home and Pro editions. Starting this June, we will begin updating devices running the April 2018 Update, and earlier versions of Windows 10, to ensure we can continue to service these devices and provide the latest updates, security updates and improvements. We are starting this machine learning (ML)-based rollout process several months in advance of the end of service date to provide adequate time for a smooth update process.

    They should be free now to continue with Skippy. Wonder when will they divorce Skippy from 19H2 ?

    Skippy is not part of 19H2 - it is 20H1.

    MS have yet to explain how Insiders can test 19H2 unless only on Slow Ring.

    I fail to see how this will work as traditionally builds are released to the Fast Ring superheros who test it first, and then an occasional but relatively stable build gets released to Slow Ring.

    MS have obviously not thought through the 19H2/20H1 strategy.

    The only way out of this conundrum as far as I can tell is to skip (pardon pun) 19H2 altogether.

    Either that or 19H2 will be just be an interim bug fix release with no new features to test anyway?
