  1. Should I allow cracked programs on my PC?


    My son likes installing cracked programs on our PC (some of them are unafordable, such as Vegas Pro).

    Windows 10 often flags them as trojans and quarantines or recommends removing them.

    He insists that he checks YouTube videos and stuff and that these are just false positives.

    My view is that he shouldn't install any illegal programs, so I pay him what I can, but not any cracked programs.

    We use this PC for the family: we buy online and do everything with this PC: buy online, check our bank accounts etc.
    Another doubt is: if I buy him a PC for gaming and allow him to use cracked programs, would this put the rest of the computers connected to the same router as well?


    I'd welcome any expert opinions on this.

    :)
     

  2. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.

    Xbox 360 cracked

    Even though the hack is very complex, and should not be done by you and me, but the crack will let you play back-ups of your Xbox 1 and Xbox 360 games, and will boot all normal xbox games, yes all, not just the onces on the compatibilty list. So we are one step closer.

    Problem allowing program through firewall in Windows 10.

    Hello Andrew,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:


    • Does the issue persists with a particular program?

    • Did you check if you are facing similar issue when you allow other programs through the firewall?


    I suggest you to check if similar issue persists if you allow other program to allow through the firewall and when on reboot the program is disabled.



    If the issue persists, I suggest you to contact the program developer and check with the program settings.



    Write back to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.
