    Nasty popup with audio due to mis-type on address bar - window edge


    Has anyone experienced a popup alerting to worm/virus that looks like a windows alert that is complete with audio and phone numbers? After ending task and re-launching EDGE the alert returns. Nasty! Performed a PDR and things cleared.

    :)

  2. Turn off Facebook notifications in Windows 10

    If you are using Google Chrome for a browser, they have snuck a rather unethical setting in there on you.

    chrome://settings/contentExceptions#notifications

    Type or copy paste that into your address bar, hit enter and it the windows popup, scroll down to "Facebook notifications" and turn it off.

    I am not sure if there is a similar invasion of this setting in MSft IE or Edge browsers.

    How can I remove a URL from the Address bar in Windows 10 Taskbar?

    Please note that I am not wanting to remove
    everything from that Address bar, nor do I want to remove the Address bar itself. I just want to be able to remove (say a mis-typed) URL that is taking up space in the pop-up list of addresses/URLs.

    Thanks for any help which works.

    Thank you. Even after you explained what it stands for, I have never heard that expression before. But like I said, I am kind of late to the game, I just got into home computers in the 90s after having worked in computers in the 70s, IBM 360 and such. But thank you, you learn something new every day.

    Oh yeah, BTW. I still don't know what that means. Is it anything like a re-boot or a restart?

    I am using the default windows firewall along with Defender as the antivirus. I did a full scan after the incident. Apparently it was a fishing Trojan and it did not show in the scan. All appears normal.
    Regarding software: I am trying to keep the machine as basic as I can during the Windows 10 startup. I do not want to introduce any additional variables. I have noticed that outside vendors are having issues wit their drivers being compatible. ie. My amd 6000 series Graphics drive has had at least 2 version changes since the release but that is another subject!

    Oh, PDR is an acronym that was used in my industry. Means: as normal of a power down and restart as one can achieve. ( no slamming of the main power switch).
