Renew to BitDefender 2017 or move to Symantec Premium 2017 ?

Question: Renew to BitDefender 2017 or move to Symantec Premium 2017 ?

My BD sub expires soon. Trying to decide whether I should switch to Norton 2017. It's my understanding that Norton is no longer the grand POS it used to be.

What say you?

Preferred Solution: Renew to BitDefender 2017 or move to Symantec Premium 2017 ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender
So my question is to know if it is a good idea to replace BD by KIS on my config ?
Thanks
NB: I have paid keys for both

The new Box V2 includes all of these features, plus an enhanced assessment tool that scans for weak or default passwords and other vulnerabilities hackers could exploit.

New Features

Monitor where you enter personal information?such as address, Social Security number, etc.?and prevent you from accidentally submitting that data on fraudulent or insecure websites.

Improved Hardware

The beefier hardware is designed to run more activities locally, from the Box V.2 itself.

Price and Licensing
The Box Version 2 is expected to retail in the sub-$200 range, and will go on sale later this year with pre-orders beginning in summer 2017. Bitdefender says it will likely keep both devices on the market to provide different price points. Either device comes with a free year of security coverage from Bitdefender, which will cost consumers $99 a year afterwards.

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.

The other website are opened normally, without issues. I noticed that just as the computer starts with the processes of BD and SpyShelter, and for the first 10/15 minutes, I didn't have problems, but passed this amount of time, here are the problems.

I have a Dell XPS 13 laptop running Windows 10 on which I installed Bitdefender Free 2017 last fall.  Since this is my travel laptop I don't run it all the time.  I turned it on today and Bitdefender Free had turned off automatic protection, showed a big red error "Your system is at risk", and when I tried to run a system scan, the scan failed.  
 
I tried to search for a solution, or at least for an uninstall tool.  It looks to me like Bitdefender has stopped supporting the free antivirus edition, although I see the download link still exists; and it doesn't provide an uninstall tool - its help files tell me that my start menu should have a "repair or uninstall" option, which wasn't there.  I finally decided to uninstall the thing on the control panel; but the file folders are mostly still there.  
 
Right now the laptop is protected by Malwarebytes (paid) and Windows Defender.
 
First, how do I get rid of the rest of Bitdefender?  Second, is Windows Defender now enough on Windows 10, or should I look into other free antivirus tools?  I chose Bitdefender because of a recommendation on Bleeping Computer.

All tests were conducted in protected virtual environment. Due to the small number of samples used in these tests, you should take results with a grain of salt. This test shows how the tested product behaves with certain malware samples, under unique circumstances, in a given period of time. Product?s malware detection rate is not an equivalent of protection. This should not be mixed up. MalwareTips encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Hi guys. New bitdefender 2017 Total Security user here (just bought a 3 year license for the family plan). After using it i do have some questions:

1. I've been trying to figure out the autopilot thing. From bitdefenders site:
What is Autopilot mode?

Antivirus protection, provided by on-access scanning and continuous scanning.
What is "continous scanning" exactly? Do you still need to schedule quick/full scans of your entire system manually or will bit defenders "auto pilot" do that automatically at the times it determines are best? I of course occasionally want both to run and don't want just on-demand scanning and hoping autopilot will take care of everything for me rather than having to configure it on a bunch of computers.

2. Is there any way to determine when the last full / quick scan was done. I don't want to have to scroll through the notification area which is quite busy. Is there some type of scan log area? I couldn't find it.

3. Is there any threads with best practices on settings of bitdefender or are the defaults pretty good? I found a great one on kaspersky. Of course i don't want to affect system performance to much.

One of the small things i don't like about bitdefender so far is it just tells you "up to date". It doesn't tell you the date or version of the definitions you have (which most products do).
 

Answer:Some misc Bitdefender 2017 Total Security questions

Autopilot is basically a marketing term. There are products who have a standard HIPS which asks you block/allow questions on detection of potentially dangerous actions. Then there are ones which have algorithms and correlate different detected actions against a threshold and if it is deemed too much suspicious program is blocked. However Bitdefender is not the only one which works that way. But autoscan is just what is says it is - automatic updates, automatic on-demand scans, automatic actions against detected malware with no questions. I'm not using Bitdefender but I do have an idea of what it's settings looked like. The only thing that you might want to check is the ransomware protection for settings you might want to change/add important folders etc. Not sure of the 2017 interface but you should be able to filter the logs by some select dropdown menus. For your third question the most important thing is to use brain.exe.

First, thank you for your reading.
I want to ask you about the better setting for building secure PC on Windows 10 as a consumer.

I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as the main anti-malware software and firewall software on my PC. It looks good.

But at sometimes, Bitdefender is heavy a little, especially when updating signatures.
And booting time of my PC is long. Updating time at start up Windows is also long. I think it.

So I seaching another security softwares for my PC, and I find some softwares which I guess that it is good for using PC. The soft is Avast Free 2016, and Microsoft EMET or Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free Edition.

~Q.1~
Which is better, Avast Free 2016 or Bitdefender Security 2017. I will use EMET or MBAE for covering protection of vulnerability when I use Avast Free.

~Q.2~
What is Bitdefender and Avast Free regarded as security software for Windows 10 Consumers?
Which software do many people regard as a good solution?
I heard that Bitdefender is getting very high level score in many tests, but it is heavy for many PC.
And I aloso heard that Latest Avast Free gives security enough for many consumers, but sometimes do false detection, and it may be serious for OS at sometimes.
Please teach me about above things. I guess my English is not well, but I will read all replies from everyone. If I will be late replyng you. excuse me.

Thank you!

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Answer:Avast 2017 vs AVG 2017

Hey man. Of the two I would choose Avast, much more reliable and customizable.
My personal choice is Bitdefender though. I believe you could do some research on Youtube so that you form your own opinion. Here are some interesting channels:

After eliminating other free products (Avast, too many false-positives and nags; AVG, poor detection and lousy performance; Avira, nags; Qihoo, way too many false-positives), I'm down to two.

Bitdefender stepped up its free product but Panda is still touting their performance from 2 years ago and fell off the testing lab reports.

How do the two compare in regards to:

Detection rates
Low-performance impact
Reasonable false-positives, should be rare
NO nags. Zero. Nada. None. Zilch.
NO forcing browser changes (search engines, homepages) or toolbars
Gaming compatibility
Additional attack surface coverage

This is for my (and wife's) Windows 10 machines. I'm looking for the lesser overhead/hassle product for the desktops, laptop, and Surface and the better mitigator for the sheep-dip virtual machine.

Thanks in advance for any input!
 

Answer:Bitdefender Free vs. Panda Free (2017)

I'd recommend Bitdefender free, this is coming from the blocking side of things. Bitdefender seems to be more lenient in terms of blocking IP's and sites so connections to servers and such should be better and non intrusive.

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

Question: Renew BitDefender?

Been using BitDefender on 3 machines for 2 years now. Renewal notices are starting to come in.

It's a lot like Sirius. It gets cheaper as the days go on LOL

Anyway, should I stick with BitDefender, or should I consider something else? I haven't really had any issues witih BitDefender. I used ESET before they went to shit with the 4.x release a few years ago.

Note: I don't use "Free" AV nor am I [H]ard enough to go without it completely.

What is the first thing comes up to your mind when you want to renew your Bitdefender product. Many people are confusing between renewal license key and new license key. Let?s solve this puzzle together.

What is the difference between Renewal License Key and New License Key?
When you purchase a renewal license key, the new subscription days are added to your current subscription. If you purchase a new Bitdefender license key, your subscription will start only when you enter your license key and activate your Bitdefender product, which means the subscription from your previous Bitdefender product may not carried over.
TIP: The new license key usually cheaper than the renewal license key, in order to appeal more customers. If you purchase a new Bitdefender license key, feel free to contact Bitdefender customer service and ask to merge your two licenses.

Do not search under the keyword "renewal"

Normally people like to search on Google, Yahoo or Bing under the keyword bitdefender renewal, bitdefender renewal price, bitdefender renewal discount coupon, bitdefender renewal offer etc. Probably it wouldn?t find for you the best price, which is already mentioned in my tip.

DO NOT Click on ?Don't have a license key? Buy one now!?

DO NOT renew your Bitdefender product from the Bitdefender main window; you will pay full price, no discount!

I see the last thread on Windows Defender went off topic very quickly. I have have had paid-for Bitdefender installed for a couple of years and it is up for renewal soon. I have been wondering if Windows Defender would be an adequate substitute. It's not a matter of cost just that BD is becoming bloated and there are parts that I don't use already. There have been a few occasions when I have had odd problems with programmes on the laptop which turned out to be the Safe Files section blocking the programmes or access to files without giving any real-time indication and I only found out when I saw a reference to a block in Notifications later on. Is Bitdefender still the dog's danglies in the PC security world? Would I be just as well leaving everything to Windows Defender?

Hi all,

About a week after my last visit I noticed a browser hijack. I opened a page and in just under a second the browser loaded a page claiming to be a Firefox update page, and it popped up a download window asking me to download a javascript file. It's been busy at work so I haven't had time to deal with this, but today it happened again and I was in the middle of typing in another application when this download popup took over and I'd hit the spacebar before I knew what was going on. So now I probably have something malicious and definitely need to make time to deal with this crap again.

Here are the FRST and MBR logs:

Not sure if this is the result of the ?Creator Update or coincidental hardware fail.
Yesterday my HP6735S laptop running W10 Home since last year was offered an update from v1607 (I think) to the latest. I allowed this to go ahead and waited .. and waited for about 4.5 hours all told.
Eventually it finished and after logging in again it appeared to be working.
After being left for a while it turned itself off - as normal.
I then tried to turn it on with the following result:-
Blue power light ON
WiFi LED Orange (Off)
HDD activity LED flashing Orange (Normally Blue)
DVD drive seeming to try accessing (Empty at the time)
Display Blank
Caps Lock LED flashing occasionally
Pressing and holding the power button turns Off as normal.
Tried removing battery and starting with adapter - same.
Tried putting in W10 *.iso DVD - same.
I can read the HDD in a caddy on another PC and it seems to be OK
(Except the small (100M) system partition reports empty)
I have 3 normal partitions:
Windows 7 (~100G)
Windows 10 (~100G)
Data (~500G)
I usually had to select W7 or W10 at start up.
Unfortunately I cannot run your SysInfo utility for obvious reasons.
Procesor is dual core AMD Turion X2 64bit with 4G RAM (2 x 2G)
Laptop came with (250G HDD)/Vista originally which I replaced with XP.
The HDD was later replaced with 1T HGST and installed W7.
W10 was installed using the code from W8 (bought) as a dual boot.
Any ideas?

If that new version is ready, they can submit it on his store dashboard page. However, because they violate the Chrome web store program. This extension will also get a manual review by a Google employee, to check if they meet Chrome web store guideline (that takes 48 hours). If OK, then you see the Chrome extension back in the store.

How did you "clear regsitry entries"?
 
If you did not do a very detailed removal of such, chances are there are entries remaining in the registry.  The easy way to find out is to go into regedit...do a search for "Nero 2017" or "Nero".

I Just bought a 2017 XPS 13 ; Touchscreen Model ; i7 Processor with 16 GB of RAM 
and this *** machine is a toaster! 
Its just out of the box with windows 10 Pre Installed and its heating with or without the power plugged in. 
It  is getting hot to the point where I cannot use it anymore ( At the Table or in my lap ) 
Also on a full charge the battery capacity is reflecting as 3 hours and 30 minutes only. 
Is it normal? How do I fix this? I have done the BIOS update , System Firmware Upgrade etc. and everything is up to date. Tried reinstalling windows and also tried with the power saver mode but issue still persists. 
What to do?

Answer:XPS 13 , 2017 OVERHEATING!

You don't mention which XPS 13 you have but my 9365 gets warm when something is working.  Anti-virus scans, system maintenance and others will heat the system even when you are not using it.
My system will get to 112 °F near the back and mostly on the left side.

Question: End of Vista 2017

I understand that Vista finishes in 2017. Can you expand on this for me?

I have Home Premium 32 bit at present and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor seems to recognise only minor adjustments to be made. Would you suggest I upgrade now or wait until Vista ends?

Answer:End of Vista 2017

It will be just like XP. What it basically means is that there will be no updates from Microsoft for it. Vista will still work just like xp does still work.

If your happy with Vista then you can continue to use it for the rest of your life if you want.

What I recommend though is that do not use internet explorer use another browser. if you use it after the finish date as it will be vunerable and make sure you have a firewall and AV software protecting your system, but you should have that now anyway.

Question: 2017 4K V nitro?

Sorry if this is the wrong thread, couldnt find anything in regards to the v nitro series.  Ive been looking at a new laptop to replace my V3-771g from 5 years ago and im looking at the V nitro series. The 2017 models are finally for sale but none have a 4K screen. I was wondering if this feature will be released on later models or not at all. Thanks

Answer:2017 4K V nitro?

Hi,  It is likely that 4K models will be released, however, acer hasn't confirmed this and it is only public speculation. The top tier models seem to have a GTX 1060, which isn't good enough for 4k gaming. I'd still recommend the 1080p version

Hi, I just bought an XPS 8910 with 256 GB M2.SSD + 2GB HDD with 16GB DDR4 RAM.(Win10Pro) I installed whole necessary Sotwares, updates, etc.When I finish, I pluged in USB 3.0 Extern HDD (1TB)Then rebooted and started with Acronis TI 2017 CD.Till here everything works fine.TI does not recognised C:\ [M2.SSD] as normal but Extern HDD C:\ itself.So, I cant make any image copy with Acronis Live CDANY IDEA

Answer:M2.SSD Does not appear on Acronis TI 2017

The Chipset 8910 M2 drivers are not native to windows. You need to talk with Acronis about mass storage drivers.  There is support from Dell for Windows PE and DISM but it is not free.
Imaging using anything other than windows PE 10 and Microsoft Tools
is not supported by Dell or Microsoft. When you deploy a duplicated or imaged Windows installation, it is required that the System Preparation (Sysprep) tool is used before the capture of the image.
Dependencies
   You must run Windows Setup before you use Sysprep.
   You need a tool to capture an image of the installation, such as Microsoft DISM

I am having to do a search in my browser TWICE before it sticks. Visited links no longer change colors. There is NO DOUBT something that has changed with the Microsoft updates. So, in all of the messing around Microsoft does to "fix" security,
they have now managed to screw up IE 11.
No amount of changing colors and accessibility resolve the change of colors satisfactorily.  If I get the colors to change for the visited links, the colors of the web pages are messed up.  Other clicks and colors only make matters worse so that
now my email format is screwed.  So are most of the web pages I visit.
You people definitely did something and I just don't know if I do a system restore all the way back to August will fix the problem.  I don't know if I have to remove all the Updates that Microsoft has told me I needed.  I do not want to reset IE. 
That is only as the last resort and I am not confident that will fix the problem since I clicked and changed colors in all manner of scenarios and I just want my computer browsing to go back to the way it looked for the past year or more.

hi,this summer i bought the x1 carbon with 16gb and 1tb.it arrived with a battery lasting only 2-3 hours. i opened a case and lenovo sent a repair box. i decided to keep it because i cannot be without a computer for three weeks and  i decided to operate it mostly plugged in. lenovo had old me that they would not take the  broken computer back unlike good american companies like apple or costco. are they not interested in happy customers? i have to travel a lot and yesterday the ssd gave up on the five months young computer. i am shocked. this has never happened  to me before even with cheap consumer rated computers. the x1 carbon was almost 2500 loonies. lenovo sells it as a premium business class computer. now i am stuck in asia without a working computer. for the first time in my life. thanks to lenovo.fred

Well, it finally happened. Got fed up with M$/Windows policy.. no, upda... no, sys... no, everything and went Linux as my main system, with existing Windows 10 in dual boot. Not wanting to type again here, I'll just paste a part of my post form Level1techs (Also a great community, btw):

Well, I finally stopped reading about this or that distro, and jumped into it by installing OpenSUSE Leap 42.2. I actually know nothing about Linux except what I read on different distros' websites, DE's, etc. I know I will still need my Windows system for the time being, but I want to see how much of it will remain in Windows. If I manage to get 90% of things working in Linux, I'll dump Windows for good. Why OpenSUSE?
Main reasons: It's an rpm distro. I work a lot with 3D & vfx - Maya, Houdini, Foundry (Modo, Nuke) which all work on Linux. Maya's and Foundry's official supported distros are CentOS/RHEL, but I've read that it can be a pain to utilize properly (nvidia drivers etc.), and it uses way too old kernel, but, people say it's rock solid. Anyway, I thought OpenSUSE is as close to it as possible.
It's one of the major distributions, stable (well, that's what people say, I actually have no idea, but being used as a server OS also, I tend to believe that) and well documented. It's unlikely to disappear any time soon.
Versatile. OK, again, being a noob at Linux, I have no idea in what way it is versatile, but I'll go wi... Read more

Gentlemen -again I am having a problem with Windows 7 and now the newly installed Office 2017. I seem to have corrupted files somewhere on the system . I used Advanced System Care Ultimate to find the errors and correct them. If finds errors but does not seem to get rid of them even after acknowledging them. When I restart the computer I get the search for systems page as windows won't start properly and it corrects some problems then it actually starts the second time. I have had BSOD related to dump files? and now the whole system is so slow I can take walks while it starts a program - any program, outlook, excel, whatever. So I need someone with more knowledge than I to help me fix this mess. So I go to you.
I have Malwarebytes and ASCU installed on this computer.
Let me know what files are needed to decipher the problem and get the computer back to normal.
Thanks

My plan is to replace my old samsung phone with a new phone.I like the windows phone platform and it satisfies all my basic needs(mail checking, using skype and whatsapp, managing office files)if i bought it. My question is can i buy a lumia phone (lumia 640 xl) now and i cant afford a surface phone as it costs higher to my budget.How long microsoft wiil support windows 8.1 and windows 10.Can it provide support minimum for five years. how long will whatsapp support in lumia phones?

Answer:Can i buy a Lumia phone in 2017?

I just bought a Lumia 640XL a few days ago.
8.1 is very long in the tooth these days and has for the most part become unsupported as far as apps.
Windows 10 mobile is still supported and growing for now.
I can't say for sure if support for 5 years is going to happen.
All we can do is go with the flow for now.

I've been using my X1 Yoga 2017 for a few weeks now and I've noticed that when I'm doing simple things like checking email, browsing the web etc. the fan kicks in sporadically. The is most noticeable when I first power on the computer, or wake it up from sleep The problem is that the fan is pretty loud, for example, if I'm sitting in a meeting and the fan kicks in then its pretty audible to most people in the (small) room Is there a way to control the fan RPM or at least reduce the fan noise in some way so that its not so noticeable? I would prefer not to have to open up the computer to do any work (e.g. reapplying TIM) Currently my CPU temp is 48C, but it goes up to 84C usually straight after windows starts and thats when the fan really kicks into high gear

I think the only things wrong with this years thinkpad is the battery life and screen brightness, here I have a few things that lenovo can improve on to step up their game and create the best 14 inch business class laptop in the world. 1. Increasing screen brightness to at least 400 nits as it is very dim compared to competition and outside work it becoming a pain.2. Increase that battery life to 18-20 hours in your tests, which will lead to about 10 hours of real worlds usage even if it means not being as light maybe back to the 2.8lbs of last year. As this years 11 hours isn't very long in real world usage compared to the likes of maybe Dell XPS or even Apple.3. Bring back the full SD card reader (which atm I dont see an issue with the microSD, people have complained).4. Try using intel Iris graphics instead of HD graphics as its more powerful, costs around the same and people will appriciate it more. I hope users agree with what I am saying and even though its far away I can say im looking forward to what the 5th Gen X1 Carbon has in store for us!
