    Security hardening


    Good day community,

    I wanna your kind assistance about security hardening.
    My goal is like that: 1. to encrypt all (hole) drive C and D. 2. install VM ware 16 and use it for other jobs. or for personal purposes.
    3. on main OS want to use Tor browser. chrome and Mozila got RAM hungers.

    Whats your recommendations right ways to be more secure and make system more harden? is recommended to encrypt C and D drive?

    Any suggestions would be helpful for me.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 Pro Update Error after hardening

    Hi,

    I have a new installation of Windows 10 Pro and after a few days of use, I am getting this error on Windows Update:

    "There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x80070426)"

    The background is as follows:

    I have a new Dell XPS 13 laptop. It came with Windows 10 Home, and I upgraded it to Windows 10 Pro because I need to use it for business and need the extra encryption and other features that Home does not provide. I have implemented security hardening on
    the Windows 10 Pro installation following the process documented here: Harden Windows 10 for Security. How to secure Windows 10.

    After completion of the hardening steps (first time round), the above error appeared. I assumed that it was due to my hardening steps, so I tried all sorts of fixes and tweaks to repair it, until I finally restored back to a previous restore point from 2
    days earlier. After the restore, the windows updates were functioning. I then repeated the hardening steps, while testing Windows Update after each major step in the process. Windows Update continued to work fine through the hardening and even worked fine
    after I completed the hardening (the second time). This was yesterday evening when I ended work for the day. Now, this morning (the next day), when I started up my Windows 10 Pro, it is giving the above error once again under Windows Update.

    I am not sure whether this is an issue caused by the hardening, or just a temporary issue that will resolve itself. Can somebody please assist and shed some light on the situation.

  3. Hardening Guide

    I looked around a bit, and cannot seem to find any guide to harden Windows 10. All I'm looking for is a generic Microsoft hardening guide, I'm really just assuming that one exists at this point. Any help would be appreciated, and thank you in advance.

    That made me so facepalm. Some people have absolutely no clue. I hope they don't take you for granted with all this you're doing for them.

    SonicWall is a good security product, so Mindweaver's suggestion sounds like a good one and should make for a rather bigger baby step. Let's hope they take it.
