Preferred Solution: Bitdefender 2017 Build 21.0.25.80

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
Leverages heuristic data gathered by Bitdefender about what safe and normal network traffic looks like, should it detect anything untoward?exploits, brute-force attacks, port scanning?the Box blocks access.

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
Dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor
1GB of DDR3 memory
4GB of eMMC/NAND storage
Supports Dual Concurrent 2.4GHz and 5GHz
802.11n MIMO 2x2 + 802.11ac MIMO 33 AC1300
Two 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet ports

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.

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.

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!

Don't try installing bitdefender on build 10122 unless you're very familiar with using safe mode. You'll get the frowny BSOD screen to greet you and a non booting machine.....

Answer:Build 10122 and bitdefender

I've said it over and over again.. You should NOT be using 3rd party antivirus, firewalls, or anti-malware with a beta OS. These tools integrate deeply with the OS and are very sensitive to changes in the OS and can cause disk, memory, and network corruption, BSOD's, and other problems.

If you insist on running them, just be prepared for these problems...

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.

Answer:Bitdefender Antivirus 2017 VS Immunet Antivirus 5

Never use 2 av's on the same machine.
BitDefender is the winner here obviously.... its one of the best av's out there. You can combine it with Comodo Firewall for even better results

Hey everyone,
This post is not meant to put your hopes up or anything but I was just speculating about whether snapchat will finally make it to windows after BUILD 2017. I wanted to know your opinions regarding this.
The reason I'm posting about this is that I recently went back to W10M from android and the only thing bothering me is Snapchat (after all these years) still not showing any interest in making a UWP app for windows.

Today, at Build 2017, we announced the next wave of Windows 10 innovations built to empower the creator in all of us ? the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Available later this year, the Fall Creators Update delivers new experiences for more than 500 million Windows 10 devices: A new design system for the next wave of creativity across devices; experiences that move with you across Windows, iOS, and Android; iTunes, Spotify, SAP Digital Boardroom are coming to the Windows Store; new tools that make Windows home for all developers; and the world?s first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers ? no markers required.

The spirit of creativity lives in each of us. So often our lives are changed by creating something out of nothing, from a big idea, a dream, or just a simple thought.

Like the incredible developers here at Build, I experienced my own personal creativity in software development. I remember what it was like to wait as my code compiled, then seeing it come to life on the screen for the first time. There is an amazing feeling of creativity that comes from software development. I love seeing that spark of creativity in our Windows developer community.

The Windows 10 Creators Update began rolling out last month to more than 500 million Windows 10 devices around the world. It?s exciting to see more than 300 million people using Windows 10 every day for more than 3.5 hours a day on average. With all of this engagement, we?re most proud that Windows 10 c... Read more

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

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.

I had to install BitDefender Antivirus 2009 in compatibility mode and it did, however when I try to install weekly.exe manual updates it can`t access BitDefender`s registry keys. I tried extracting from the .exe the .msi file and typed in cmd: "msiexec /i weekly.msi /l* log.txt", the log.txt file shows the registry keys the .msi are trying to access, however they exist and, for testing, if I try to change its values with regedit there appears a message like this: "Windows Security: Can`t change values".

Bitdefender is a great program, but with still some cons with it. That's why people started releasing AV with Bitdefender's native engine but with different UI. Most come with dual-engines, one being the company's and one being Bitdefender's. The most popular ones are: F-Secure, Emsisoft, and Bullguard. You might ask, "Hey, but why won't people switch to these instead of using Bitdefender, since they come with Bitdefender's essential protection added with their own security options?" A big con of these alternatives are that they are usually outdated, because Bitdefender updates its own products first, then push it out into the other vendors.
So...
Pros of Bitdefender:
-More staff and faster updates
-Always up-to-date
Pros of Other Bitdefender-Based Products:
-Generally more features
-Generally slimmer (less bloated)
 

Answer:Bitdefender vs Products Using Bitdefender Engine Explained

BitDefender develops all of its real-time protection features, they only lease their scanning engine to other vendors which is usually an older version but has the latest signature updates. F-Secure, Emsisoft, Qihu 360, Bullguard and others develop their own real-time protection features and implement the scanning engine.

The most bloated part of BitDefender's own product is its real-time protection features that is why other products that using its engines have less bloat and bugs. Just because they use an older scanning engine doesn't mean that the detection is inferior since the signature updates are the same. Newer engines are also much heavier, older engines are more stable.

BitDefender also is known for poor custom support and resolved bugs another benefit for using another product with the BitDefender engine.

Enjoy!!

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​

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.

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today we are excited to release Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16257 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring and also in Skip Ahead! We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15237 to Insiders in the Fast ring.

We won?t have a new Windows Server Insider Preview build for Windows Insiders this week.

What?s New in Build 16257 For PC

Eye Control (beta)
Yesterday, we announced Eye Control, which makes Windows 10 more accessible by empowering people with disabilities to operate an on-screen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using only their eyes. The experience requires a compatible eye tracker, like the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, which unlocks access to the Windows operating system to be able to do the tasks one could previously accomplish with a physical mouse and keyboard. We are starting by supporting the EN-US keyboard layout, and we are looking to expand to more keyboard layouts in the future. We are excited to release this experience as a beta and would love your feedback!

Setting up Eye Control:
Own or purchase a Tobii Eye Tracker 4C (Coming next will be support for Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEyePlus, EyeMobile Plus, and I-series.)
Download and update to Tobii?s Core eye tracking hot fix release 2.10.11.6458 and run calibration with your own profile
Check for Windows Updates; the new Tobii Eye Tracker HIDClass Driver should be found on Windows Update and installed automatically.
Make sure your Tobii ... Read more

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today we are excited to release Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16251 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring! The same build will be available for Insiders who opted in to Skip Ahead. We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15235 to Insiders in the Fast ring. We won?t have a new Windows Server Insider Preview build for Windows Insiders this week.

What?s New in Build 16251 For PC

Windows lets you link your phone and PC
You may remember at Build we talked about PCs and phones working better together. With Build 16251, we are introducing the first set of features that enable ?linking? your phone to your PC. This build?s scenario is focused on cross-device web-browsing. Today, we?re asking for you Windows Insiders to help us test this experience out using your Android phones. Support for iPhone is coming very soon, stay tuned.

To get started, after installing today?s new build on your PC, go to Settings > Phone and link your phone. Having you link your phone ensures that your sessions from your phone are continued only on to the PC that you?ve chosen. After adding your phone to be linked, you will receive an SMS from us directing you to install a test application called ?Microsoft Apps? for Android that completes the link between your phone and PC and enables one of our first cross device browsing scenarios.

After you?ve linked your phone, just go to your phone and start browsing the web. When y... Read more

Hello Windows Insiders!

Build 2017 is taking place right now here in Seattle and during this morning?s keynote, Terry Myerson has unveiled the next Windows 10 update arriving in the fall ‚?? the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. You can read about everything announced this morning here in this blog post from Terry. Windows Insiders who have been running builds from our Development Branch over the last few weeks have already been helping test the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. And we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16193 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring today along with Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15213 to Insiders in the Fast ring.

If you are at Build, be sure to stop by the Windows Insider Program booth! Brandon and Jason will be there as well as several of our Community Champs such as our favorite emoji master, Jen Gentleman!

Upcoming Bug Bash

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16275 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring only (not Skip Ahead). Note that if you joined Skip Ahead and leave it to take this build, you will be unable to re-join Skip Ahead. As we mentioned in the blog post for our flight on Wednesday, we are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world. This means that we intend to release new builds to Insiders more quickly and that these builds will include mostly bug fixes. You?ll notice that this build includes a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy.

NOTE: Some of the x64 versions of Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise for this build in languages such as EN-GB, FR-FR, DE-DE, RU-RU, PT-BR and several others are not yet published. We?re working to have these published shortly.

We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15245 to Insiders in the Fast ring.

Also ? join us on Tuesday August 29th at 10am Pacific for our Engineering Systems webcast on our Mixer channel!

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today we are excited to release Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16232 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring! We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15228 to Insiders in the Fast ring. Earlier this week, we announced new end-to-end security features coming with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and this build for PC includes some of those new security features.

A note about app updates
In order to provide Windows customers with the highest quality inbox apps possible, we will pause testing new versions of our inbox apps with Windows Insiders. This means that Insiders will not receive app updates from the Windows Store for our inbox apps that are newer than the apps included in the build. Insiders may notice that some features we were testing in our inbox apps ? including recent updates to the Photos app ? will temporarily disappear. This is because some of our inbox apps won?t have all the latest new features without getting an update from the Store. It is critical that Insiders are experiencing the same version of Windows that will be released as the default version for all Windows users. Insiders will once again start receiving app updates in the very near future. As always, your feedback will help us tremendously to define the overall Windows experience and insure the quality of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is excellent for our customers.

As we mentioned previously, we are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world.

On Build 16288, you will notice that the watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop has disappeared. You will also see that the OS now reports as ?Version 1709? which is the official version number for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release. However, this is NOT the final build as we?re not done yet. We?re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release. So we will have more builds to release to Windows Insiders between now and then. And the desktop watermark may re-appear in these builds.

We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15250 to Insiders in the Fast ring.

Microsoft has been hard at work in the last few months to make Windows 10 a great operating system. Rewind to September 2014, and you have Neowin exclusively uncovering details about a new, leaner browser that the Redmond giant has been cooking in their labs.

Recently, we've shown you mock-ups of that new browser, codenamed Spartan, to give you a glimpse of what's coming to Windows 10 in terms of UI design. We've also talked about Cortana taking center stage in the new OS, and how to enable the new Trident engine in Internet Explorer for preview builds, as well as a new Login screen (build 9901).

Microsoft is expected to release the new 'consumer build' of Windows 10 via Windows Update for Windows 7 and 8.x users, so get ready for it with this tool if you haven't already. We found evidence in build 9901 that a new release may be almost ready for rollup, since a new slow ring preview build shows up as available in the Settings app.

Unfortunately, if you want to try and install it, it most likely won't work due to a problem with Windows Update in build 9901 confirmed by Gabe Aul back in December 2014. Still, this happens at the same time build 9920 was compiled, begging the question whether or not this is the build that's coming soon to Windows insiders.

Judging from what we've seen in build 9901, the upcoming release should have a slew of improvements in both functionality and user interface. Stay tuned for more details as t... Read more

Answer:New evidence in build 9901 shows new slow ring build is 9916 [UPDATE]

I think Windows 10 will be a great OS in case Microsoft keeps up the good work

I will definitely upgrade to it.

Today, we released a new Windows 10 Preview Build of the SDK and the Mobile Emulator to be used in conjunction with Windows 10 Insider Preview (Build 16278 or greater). The Preview SDK Build 16278 contains bug fixes and under development changes to the API surface area.

The Preview SDK and Mobile Emulator can be downloaded from developer section on Windows Insider.

For feedback and updates to the known issues, please see the developer forum. For new developer feature requests, head over to our Windows Platform UserVoice.

Things to note:
This build works in conjunction with previously released SDKs and Visual Studio 2017. You can install this SDK and still also continue to submit your apps that target Windows 10 Creators build or earlier to the Windows Store.
The Windows SDK will now formally only be supported by Visual Studio 2017 and greater. You can download the Visual Studio 2017 here.
Known Issues:
Compilation fails on non-Windows 10 platforms

When building apps with the minimum target platform version set to 10.0.16278.0 you get the build error:

?The program can?t start because api-ms-win-eventing-classicprovider-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.?

This will occur if the minimum target platform version is set to 10.0.16278.0. To work around this, edit your project file and change the version to a previous released SDK. For example:

<WindowsTargetPlatformMinVersion>10.0.10586.... Read more

The patches are numbered KB 3040021 and 3038390 for the general hotfixes, and KB 3021952 for the Internet Explorer security rollup. The details are not available yet at the time of writing this post, but they will be up shortly, so if you want to dive into them, we'll keep an eye out for them and update this post with the links.

While we do not expect any major issues with this download, but do let us know in the comments below if you run into any problems. Based on Gabe Aul's tweets, the updates also include the necessary changes to prepare users for a new build.

UPDATE: More info on the Internet Explorer security fixes here.

UPDATE 2: The new build released to Insiders will be from the fbl_impressive branch, so definitely a 100xx build, as one of the updates changes the registry settings accordingly.

Thanks to trusty Windows information-leaker Wzor, we?re starting to get some screenshots of what is potentially the next build of the Windows 10 Technical Preview. Wzor has just published the screenshots of the build, which is identified as Windows 10 Enterprise x64 build 10056 English.

Windows 10 Enterprise x64 build 10056 English soon more info and pictures here:http://t.co/YyoQGz3QuR pic.twitter.com/Csbz0OEVG1

? WZor (@WZorNET) April 9, 2015Click to expand...
Wzor's distinction of this build may help to explain why there are no real significant changes or features added to this build. Perhaps much of the under-the-hood work has been done to stabilize it compared to the previous release. There are some release notes that have accompanied the leaks. In the notes, there is a list of bug fixes and one addition to the Spartan browser; the next-gen browser can now open PDFs and save them directly from the browser.

If the screenshots are any indication of the next Technical Preview build, Insiders may be greeted with the coveted re-sizeable Start menu finally. Graphically inclined observers will also notice the subtle changes to the color of the Cortana Live Tile, the repositioning of the power button as well as new Recycle Bin and Task View icons.

But that appears to be it for now. Check out the screenshot below, and let us know if you spot anything else new. We?ll continue to update you as the information leaks in. In the meantime, the full build may be le... Read more

Hi all, thanks for looking.
I currently am running Nokia Lumia 1320 w/ WP10 build 10080. After 4 hard resets (2 via RESET PHONE under About menu and 2 from holding VOLUME DOWN KEY and then the button sequence on phone boot) I still cannot get the USB connection to work via my PC. It worked before this build. I have tested the USB cable on 3 different PC's : Desktop HP, Surface 3 Pro and a home built. Cable works on all 3 with my 635 .. so its not the cable.... If the phone is powered off, and I turn it on and connect the cable really fast to any PC, I get a USB NOT RECOGNIZED pop up window down by the clock ( BTW ... 1 PC is Win 7 Pro, the other 2 are Win 8.1 Pro) and then the connect / disconnect sounds. I have tried Windows Phone recovery and Lumia Phone recovery programs, both with the same results.
Altho the build is stable for the most part, I still don't want it badly enough to leave on here, and having no data via USB bugs me cause thats how I put music and vids on the thing.
A side note -- yes the phone is still charging via the USB port.
Any ideas? Should I just wait for the next build?

Hi

I just installed the Win 10 Home 64 Bit Insider Preview Build 10130 about a week ago and had issues with it not allowing any updates other than for some of my hardware drivers and MS Defender updates (I am aware of the KBXXXXX patch to address that, however didn't use it). I joined the insider program sometime ago, so this isn't an issue with anything so far.

In addition to unable to obtain updates, I could not get the 'Slow/Fast' preview build retrieval option to stay in the 'Fast' setting....it always reverts to Slow when I go back to another part of the Settings applet. It's been about 10 hours now and it's still in 'Slow' mode. Within that control panel it shows that I am setup to receive Insider Builds with the ability to Stop by pressing the button below that. I also allowed MS to 'try features on this build' just below that.

Now for some reason I decided (just for kicks) to try and 'upgrade' to the Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview edition build number 10147 just today via changing the activation key with the ones provided for Pro version. Amazingly it downloaded several files, restarted and loaded just fine. The version shows Evaluation copy Build 10147 on the screen in the lower left.

Now I still have the issue of the 'Slow/Fast' staying in Slow mode despite changing it a number of times to fast. I have the 'Defer Upgrades' unchecked.

So I guess I am wondering if anyone has the same issue and if anyone has any Windows updates they have been able to download ... Read more

Answer:IP build 10130 Home to 10147 Pro w/new key - Slow/Fast Build issues

Quite a few folks experienced the same issue w/10147. Some say that if you did an update to 10130 w/10147 but then went back and did a clean install the fast/slow issue went away. I didn't bother trying, I just went back to 10130.

My win 10 pro build 10240 hasn't received the November update build 1511 while my other win 10 home versions have. I know I'm not the only one having this problem but here's my two cents. On my xw4600, I upgraded from win 8.1 pro to win 10 pro as soon as 10 was available some months ago. I still receive other windows updates. I downloaded the most recent iso from the media creation tool but I don't have an option to mount it from the right click menu. Both sfc and dism have no issues. I would burn it do a disk but I've read other users say its just reinstalled build 10240 instead.

I was using another random win 10 pro computer at work today and noticed it hasn't received the November update yet either. Anyone else with win 10 pro that did get the update?

Maybe this issue has more to it, like when I upgraded to 10 pro I had an issue with onedrive.

If that was what you did, then you would NOT see the Mount option.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601?

An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know).

Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack?

Thanks.

Answer:Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?

You can normally install icons anywhere you like, on any machine or system which uses them, they are merely small graphics of various types. Unless the "Icon-pack" is using software to install something else, ( in which case be careful what it does), you can install it anywhere.

Some "Icon-packs" make extensive changes to system files, are dependent on the system to which they are installed, and best avoided.

So, recently (after the November build release) I woke the next morning to find that my computer underwent a rather major update. After which, it seemed, my home network was thrown out of wack. I immediately rolled/reverted/recovered to previous build. But now everything is out of wack. Most of the time I have to restart my computer just so it'll communicate with my printer to start printing. And restarting the computer is twice as long if it restarts at all. Most of the time It gets stuck in the "restart" progress animates (the rotating circles) and I have to press the restart button on the computer tower, with great regret and dread. Transferring files from one windows 10 device to another is a 50/50 hit or miss. I'm pissed. I'm not literate when it comes to networking and was super happy how everything was. But now, not only is my wifi home network out of wack, but my computer itself is wonky. I figure I might as well reinstall the newest build in hopes that it'll at least fix a fe of the problems. But anytime I check for updates, the newest build no longer shows up. Can someone please help?

It won't activate and you will end up in Safe Mode permanently. One machne = one license. You need to buy another full version. But you can do it if you don't use 7 on the old machine. You will just have to activate by phone and explain. Then if you go online with both, one will deactivate and go to Safe Mode.

Windows Update - There were some problems installing updates (0x80240025) : Windows10

My version:
Try booting to Safe Mode and renaming the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and C:\Windows\Catroot2 folders
(Use search in C:\Windows\ to find Catroot2)

You could just append -old to the folder name.
Note: You will lose your update history).

Then restart.

Anniversary upgrade:
Note that it is widely reported a good number of users have experienced a number of problems when this has been applied. (E.g. search for 'windows anniversary problems').

Therefore before you do that upgrade, take additional precautions and start using disk imaging if you don't already. Everyone is strongly recommended to do so here- so many benefits. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage.

Can anyone give me any clues as to why the update to the latest Windows 10 build fails. My PC goes through the update route, downloads to image, prepares the image, installs the image to 100%, then fails and gives the message "Restoring your previous version of Windows". (no actual error code message numbers are shown anywhere).
Once back to the original 1607 build, the process starts all over again, then back to the same result.
I'm using a SSD for the op system, with 43Gb spare space.
I've tried Ccleaner to get rid of unnecessary rubbish, but still the same result.

Answer:Unable to upgrade to latest Win 10 build from existing 1607 build.

Hi, have you had Windows update disabled for some time or have you deferred upgrading?

Please post a screenshot of your Update History.
To post a screenshot please use the icon above your post to the left of the video icon. Thanks.

Please see
Upgrade to Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials
pink and Here's How sections for some helpful basic ideas on preparing your PC.

Disconnect any unnecessary peripherals, esp. wireless.

Please perform the following routine maintenance tasks:
From an elevated command prompt run
chkdsk c: /scan

If ok, please run
SFC /SCANNOW

Post the results of these. If these fail, do not attempt to upgrade, but do do the other things following.

Please post a screenshot of your partitions using Minitool Partition wizard (free) (not Disk Management). Expand columns as necessary so all text is shown.

Uninstall any programs modifying your GUI that might conflict.
You could try upgrading having done a clean boot.

Before attempting to upgrade, I strongly recommend you create or update a disk image. We urge people to use disk imaging routinely as it gives people a 2nd chance where PCs are unbootable, uncorrectable- even if their disk fails or is infected with ransomware. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free). Things can go wrong.

I recommend you download a Win 10 iso and attempt a manual upgrade using that without downloading updates.
This saves you repeat downloads if you need to reattempt, and s a bootable disk gives you a tool with some repair options.

Answer:AMD's set-up for 2017

I recommend Zemana Anti-Malware as a second on demand scanner.
Think about getting system image software (Macrium Reflect is great for this) in case very bad things happen and you want to restore your whole system in a few minutes.

Thanks for sharing your config!
