I thought the same thing, but the built-in antimalware on Win10 cannot be removed that I know of.
Normally, the Norton install and the OS takes care of that.
If you check out my article, you will see that there is definitely seems to be something up with Win10.
Thanks for the input.
Removed, probably not, but it should the smarts to disable itself when it sees you're installing an alternative AV. Or rather, Norton should be registering itself as an AV so Defender should disable itself.
Try removing Norton, then reinstalling it. I'd say something didn't get triggered properly the first time around, and Defender is too dumb to realize it.
You cannot rule the possibility out of being infected by a known virus, even if you install all the major products. There is also no known anti-virus that claims a 100% detection-rate.
It is an important point to make, since some companies "expect" that they are completely safe when a virus-scanner is installed. It's like using a condom; safer then no lubber, but not a guarantee.
FWIW, even my parents laptops are running without a scanner; they don't open any email-attachments, and while they can download crap, they can't execute it. Never had any problems, and still running with their original Vista installation

If you can't read my code, try converting it here[^]
I think if the developers were forced to use the code they've written, it would be a different world. Force all Microsoft developers to use Windows 10 and see what happens when THEIR machine reboots at will.
Talking of forced updates, has anyone experienced this?
Busy writing document/coding/browsing/whatever when machine stops responding completely. No mouse, no keyboard. Only way out is to restart it. Then loads of updates are installed, sometimes taking more than half an hour to complete.
This has happened to me on two desktop pcs and three laptops, all running WinX (pro and home).
It's an incredibly irritating behaviour especially when trying to book a flight or complete an order online.
This has never happened to my Linux box...
We're philosophical about power outages here. A.C. come, A.C. go.
This has happened to me, my wife and my son on Win10.
My wife was in the middle of paying a bill, had just clicked the submit button -- perfect timing, Microsoft!!!
I've had the issue a couple of times in the past.
It's absolutely terrible.
My wife, a non-tech user, has asked, "why does Microsoft believe they are allowed to do this without warning me?"
That's the 64 dollar question.
That's what baffled me. It was an independent association. It did not need to touch the DB at all. After waiting for half an hour or so, I see it had checked out and deleted everything under context. It did not create anything new. So, I was left with one EDMX file and plenty of errors in data access project as none of class files were present.
At that point, I left for home. I don't understand why are these things (burn in hell all you fancy JS libraries) popular. They are taking away my control from my code and my database. How can it be good?
Note: Now before you point that I am using .Net and I anyways have less control than C or C++, I know that and .Net framework just works unlike these things.
This song is a big band jazz piece in a Latin-infused hard bop style with a rhythm section that combines a double bass and bongo drums and also has an extensive alto saxophone solo.
Thus spoke Wikipedia, I'm not that knowledgeable about jazz
Anyway, it's the intro music to Cowboy Bebop, a legendary (and in my opinion overrated) Japanese anime series.
Overrated or not, the series got me hooked (unfortunately it's only 28 episodes).
I finished the series, but I'll be listening to the soundtrack for some time to come
Now that we have shed cable we have "discovered" YouTube. You can dip in and out, sweep up small bites of nonsense or watch a movie.
Anyway, found this: Explore With Us [^] and am absolutely fascinated by what they do and the places they find. Intriguing - well worth a small investment of your time.
I find myself wondering what happened to the people that would have called these places home at one time or another. Sometimes, the people that makes the films do some digging and have some interesting stories. A from me.
To be fair there are some useful tutorials on there.. I quite like @snowboardprocamp - they have really useful tips..
Then there's @howtohockey as well, again really useful and I've watched a few whitewater kayaking videos lately (been quite a while since I last did it and helped keep me alive the other weekend)
I think if you want to learn how to do/fix something YouTube can be a really good resource. People can waste a lot of time watching useless stuff there though..
Now is it bad enough that you let somebody else kick your butts without you trying to do it to each other? Now if we're all talking about the same man, and I think we are... it appears he's got a rather growing collection of our bikes.
there will be video's "proving" that the earth is flat,
Seen those and just ignore them. YouTube "learns" what I like so I've got it only showing me stuff I'm interested in. Flat earth, stupid religious bullsh1t, ancient aliens and p0rn are not amongst my choices!
