  1. APP AND BROWSER CONTROL is confusing me


    In "Windows Defender", under "Windows Security" quietly sleeps a heading labelled "Aps and Browser Control". The message there reads, "Check Aps And Browser Control are off. Your computer could be vulnerable." So, I changed it from "OFF" to 'WARN". Is this correct?

    :)

    APP AND BROWSER CONTROL is confusing me

    Programs Missing From Control Panel List


    I was able to get rid of XNVIEW by downloading it and using it's own uninstaller.
    Have tried method suggested by Pyramid 10 with photoscape without success.
    Can't figure out how to do what is asked.

    Your next suggestion?
