    Good LAN party games?

    Most of my suggestions have already been listed.

    However, I found Swat4 to actually be a pretty fun LAN game, especially at smaller LAN parties.

  3. Nonstop alerts about virus protection

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing the operating system with the security notification on your device. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • Have you installed any third-party anti-virus software on your device?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What is the complete error code/ error message of this issue?
    • When exactly you get this error pop-up?

    Try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: If you have installed any third-party anti-virus software, I suggest you to disable it and check if it issue persists.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software,
    you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to uninstall the third-party anti-virus software.

    Step 2: I suggest you to run Windows Defender on your device and check if it helps.

    Windows Defender is malware protection that is included with and built into Windows 10. This software helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. So, you do not need to install any third party antivirus applications.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.

    Password (or PIN) Protecting 3rd Party App in Windows 10

    I'm using Windows 10 Pro with latest (1809) Release.

    Does Microsoft provide it's Users with any means of Password Protecting or Locking 3rd Party Apps? This is a 'general question' not specific to any particular App, though - just at present - I'm trying to find a way to Password or PIN Protect my 'Kindle
    For PC App' (great APP) which I downloaded direct from Amazon (not the Microsoft Store).

    Can't find a method inside the actual 'Kindle For PC App' to Password or PIN protect it. This might be because my 'Physical' Kindle is not a particularly 'recent' Model, and that (maybe) the Password or PIN can only be initiated on 'more recent' Kindle Device,
    then automatically 'carries-across' to the Kindle PC App, once Password / Pin set-up on the Physical Kindle.

    Leaving Kindle aside, generally interested to know if there's a 'Microsoft' Method for Password or Pin Protecting 'any' App (plus if that 'method' only applies to Apps obtained through the Microsoft Store, or to 'all / any' 3rd Party Apps, irrespective of
    where they are obtained from).

    Thanks in advance for any info.
