  2. Spoke to a Microsoft Technician who accessed my computer remotely, then got 200 viruses...

    Hi Le Boule.

    A few things - You have to let Microsoft use cookies in order for your to use there online remote services -- and also what was streamlined to my computer was more then just cookies... And finally, if you have hundreds of malware, cookies, and tracking software
    entering your computer, and running at the time - this will slow down your computer, (as well as any virus software you may have), to the point where your virus software (and firewall) fail -- so hundreds of cookies, tracking software and malware are indeed
    harmful to your computer...

    The point is that Microsoft aught to make sure that there "secure" pathway to their technicians, (using remote access), is indeed secure, and will not cause hundreds of malware, cookies and tracking software to enter their customers devices...

    Remote Access, at its present form, is not safe for people to use... All of this activity shuts down my firewall -- exactly what a virus is designed to do.... And it is this reason why so many people start purchasing Apple products....

    Cannot seem to access history logs for Defender on Windows 10

    What about cookies though? Doesn't it report these as most antivirus software does. Everyone gets hundreds of those all the time.

  10. Well Firefox and Google don't do it on Windows 7.

    I just checked my Windows 7 computer, which I have been on line for a hour or so and SAS didn't find any tracking cookies.
    I also use Firefox and Google on the Windows 7 computer.

    I will compare setting and see if I can find any difference.

    Did you use SAS ?

    I am not familiar with SAS, is it credible ? I do recall using it once several years ago and seems it was difficult to remove ?

  12. I have use Super Anti Spyware for years and have never had a problem with it.
    Using Windows 7, for a month and don't get 2 or 3 tracking cookies.
    I go to many more different sites on the 7 computer than I do on the 10 computer.
    The only thing different is the operating system. I don't really understand how that would make a difference.

    I'm going to do a scan with Eset Online Scanner and see if it tells me anything.

    In one hour I got 351 of these.

    Using Firefox (57.0.2) and Google.

    Here is a short list.

  13. Cookies by the hundreds.

    I have been doing so many things with my new install.
    Reading lots of Tutorials and trying many things; I forgot all about this.

    Eset Online Scanner found this. It's the only scanner that I have found that finds this. Of course I removed it.

    C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\Good Shit\spsetup131.exe Win32/Bundled.Toolbar.Google.D potentially unsafe application

    I had already ran the scan on both of my Windows 7 installs.

    I will find out in a couple of days.

    Knock on wood Veneer desk top.

    I'm back using Firefox as default. I hope it works as well as it does in Windows 7.
