    Too long to full scan desktop pc - 16/7/2019


    It now takes a very long time for the desktop pc to be scanned for virus by MS Security Essentials.

    Previouisly, it takes maximum of 4 hours to do full scan. Now it takes about 3 times the time, 13 hours to fully scan. I’ve not downloaded or input any new or additional files,videos or other programs into the pc at all. Wish to know why then it’s taking this much long time to complete the scan. This 13 hour scan started from about one month ago from the 4 hour scan.

    Is there any way the full scan time can be shortened, sped up. Am using OS Windows 7 (Home) and browser IE 11.******

    :)

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

  3. scanned documents

    Hello,

    By default, scans are saved in a Scans folder inside the Pictures. Here are the steps on how to get there:

    • Press Windows and type pictures
    • Click Pictures and double-click the Scans folder.

    Furthermore, we suggest that you repair your Word application by following the steps on this

    link
    .

    Let us know how that turned out for you.

  4. Too long to full scan desktop pc - 16/7/2019

    Lost Editability Of WAV File Meta Tags, Since 02/16/2019

    Vijay, that would have been a good thing to try, but a critical update on 2/27/2019 has cleared the previous restore points. I am at aloss trying to figure out what that is. On that date, I see update history for:

    • Three (3) Realtek audio driver updates
    • Two (2) Windows Defender Definition updates under KB2267602
    Everything else is before 2/16/2019.

    Since I checked Update History, I got another Defender update, and a .NET 3.5/4.7.2 update... KB4486553. Now, I need to reboot. Let's see what happens after I restart.
