Hi everyone,

Thank you for your splendid response to the latest Best of the Year Antivirus/Suite polls and Pro's & Con's review section of various antiviruses.

This thread will solely focus on how to configure various antivirus/suites for Best Protection in 2018.
Each week we could discuss about a new software so there's plenty of time to configure our systems

Few pointers:

If possible you can provide screenshots for the same. If you can record a video of it, it could be a lot easier! (There's no harm in just giving a text-based tutorial too)
You specifically don't need to know all the tweaks required for best protection, but if you know any, it could help others a lot.
If you think a tweak can cause degradation in performance you might also highlight it for reference.

Let's start alphabetically?

I get this annoying orange screen of death every time I unplug my laptop from the charger when it's sleeping. Does anybody know the fix for this?

Thank you,
Hello everyone. I was hoping to find some help with an ongoing problem I've been having.

My computer freezes, mostly at random. It rarely goes 2 days without doing it, but it usually only happes once a day. I will be in the middle of something and it's like someone pulled the plug out of my keyboard and mouse. There's no noticeable performance changes or warnings of any kind before it happens. I know it's not just my peripherals because I usually log out of windows10 at night before bed and I've come back to see the computer froze at 2:34am. The screen doesn't go black or bsod. It just stops. It doesn't apper to matter what I'm doing at the time. It's happened using notepad++, playing a game, watching a movie, reading the news. If there's a trigger, I'm missing it entirely.

It's been happening for about a month now. It needs to end.

My Specs are:

Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit

AMD FX-8320 20 C
Vishera 32nm Technology

8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 803MHz (11-11-11-28)

Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. 970A-DS3P (CPU 1) 25 C

E420AR ([email protected])
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 (EVGA) 27 C

931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EZEX-00BN5A0 ATA Device (SATA) 32 C

I've tried running Avast! and updating my graphics card drivers. Nothing malfunctions at all that I can tell between freezes. Except for the freeze... Read more
AOL has new software version called AOL GOLD I was forced to install it today and I hate it already. Most of the user customization features are gone. You can no longer access desktop shortcuts made from Internet Explorer without opening AOL which is what I hate. I've always been able to just click my Facebook desktop icon and open Facebook only, now it opens in my AOL Gold Software Browser. I've had AOL since 2002 and have always enjoyed it now I don't know what to do now AOL really sucks bad. If anyone can help resolve this please post.

Windows Media Player worked for a while on my Vista 2Core then stopped working. I listen to music a lot and like Media Player so this annoyed me a great deal. Finally I bit the bullet and upgraded to Windows 7 (Home Premium) and guess what -
"Windows Media Player Has Stopped Working" again, and Windows Media Center cannot play dvd's. I am
gobsmacked and $200 worse off. Windows 7 is supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread yet there is no fix or patch for the Media Center bug - everyone's complaining about this - just do a google search across the internet.
After hours searching I managed to find a link to email-assistance from Microsft,
with a $100 price tag! This is ridiculous.
Can someone please tell me what Microsoft are doing to remedy their worthless Windows 7/Vista Media Center? I run editions of Windows XP and the Media Player on XP has not failed me once,
not once!
Please advise, thank you.
I hope that I can get some help to resolve issues that I am getting while system is trying to apply new windows updates/ upgrades. I keep getting this error message on Windows update screens, and could not find the information about this error, could you
please help?
The error is :
"WindowsUpdate_8024A000" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"
I recently updated to windows 10 and in the morning I checked if it was done, it was, then I login and everything is black. I tried to run task manager didn't pop up. Checked my cords and everything to my monitor everything was fine. I have no idea what to do can you please help?
Is there a way to permanently remove OneDrive and Cloud from my system, including all references to both from my registry?

In the absence of that, is there a third-party application that will for sure block all functions of both of them?

I recently spent about an hour editing out all references to OneDrive from my registry, at least all that Windows 10 would allow, and now they are all back.

ive been trying for about a week to get pdanet on my samsung galaxy s5 to connect to my xbox. right now it connects but im having double NAT issues, UPnP issues, and teredo issues. im at a loss for what im supposed to do. pdanet connects to my computer perfectly and im using its wifi share to connect to my xbox. i also have a packet loss of 100%. at first i tried connecting my computer to my linksys cisco e2500 router but even with internet connection sharing enabled i dont get anything. even the windows 10 hotspot shows no internet access is available when using pdanet as a source of internet. the only way ive been able to get anything is from wifi share but i believe its blocking some protocols or something i need for xbox multiplayer. any help will be appreciated.
I turned my laptop on today, and the battery is saying it is at 0% and that the cord is plugged in but not charging. It worked perfectly fine yesterday and I have never had this issue before. I took the cover off and unplugged the battery and then was able to run my computer without the battery plugged in. This was to be sure that the power cord was not the issue. I ran cmd prompt powercfg -energy to look at possible issues with the battery. Attached is the energy report. I am past my knowledge and I cannot find anymore information on the internet. Can someone review my report and advice how to fix the plugged in but not charging issue I am having?

So, I recently got a new Lenovo Flex 5 14" (touchscreen with Active Pen), but Photoshop is either way too big or way too small. I was reading posts from a few years ago where Adobe said they're "still working on it". How long can it possibly take to fix the scaling?! My laptop's resolution is 1920x1080. I've tried multiple other resolutions, but none of them work. I also tried other methods (creating manifest files, etc) but they didn't help either. Is anyone else have the same problem with high resolution laptops/computers in general?
I own a P50 laptop running Windows 10.  Since December 2017, I have started getting BSOD with orange color whenever I reboot my computer that says "Page Fault in Non Paged Area".  After the system supposedly collects error information, it takes me to normal windows login screen and from then on, it is smooth sailing, until I shut down and reboot the next time. I restored back to the time when the system was working fine...that didn't help.  I checked Windows update and Lenovo's system update software.  They both say that everything is updated. Can someone please help?  I am a little freaked out because I read this could be related to RAM hardware issue.  I sincerely hope it is not the case. I have also tried couple of solutions from googling like checking disk routine and clearing my registry.  Those didn't help either. Thoughts anyone?
It's just that I am severely deficient in Testo XR experience. Aren't you a Testo XR fan who has been trying to find Testo XR? I will show you how I was able to take a Testo XR conclusion and turn it into a Testo XR as soon as I don't know if it's insurable or not.

This is a common practice now. If you're ready to begin with Testo XR, then the next point you must know is Testo XR. It's simply that recently Testo XR has been taken to new levels. Testo XR is not all that complicated.
The scenario is that I have multiple APs in the building but one network. So generally id like to know if users are able to log into the wifi of the same SSID but to connect to certain APs, there will be an extra password that needs to be entered. Is this possible?
Hello there,

This is my first post here and I'm looking for some help. I currently have my PC connected to my TV and when I restart the computer for a fresh boot I sometimes get no display. To remedy the situation I have to hold the computer power button and physically restart. Sometimes I need to hold the power times 2-3 times before I get a bios and a bootup screen. My TV is fairly new, it is a Vizio P50-C1 and it has been great. My PC is 4 years old. Some quick specs are i5-4690k, gtx960, 16GB of RAM, one small SSD for Windows and multiple other hard drives from old systems.

I don't know if my display issue is video card related, PSU related, or possibly a bad HDMI cord. Actually I've tried different HDMI cords and inputs.

Can somebody let me know what the next step to text would be?
I see others have had this problem, but the classic ?hold the power button for 10 seconds? trick isn?t working. This has happened numerous times in the past and typically it just eventually turns back on, seemingly with no rhyme or reason behind it. This time, it has been well over an hour. It?s turned on twice, gotten to the lock screen, then turned off again & I cannot get it back on.  It is certainly not an issue of wear and tear-I use it minimally, however when I do use it, I really need it to actually work.  What is going on and how can I fix it??
Hello, I recently bought a yoga 910-13ikb, and since day 1 I cannot get wifi connection, the troubleshooter shows that wifi doesnt have a valid ip configuration, so there's no internet.  i've tried with netsh winsock reset catalog, netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt, ipconfig /release , ipconfig /renew., also turning the antivirus and firewall off, I downloaded the latest update fron lenovo's page, and none of them make the wifi work.  other laptops and phones work well in the same wlan. can anyone help me with a solution for this problem?. thank you.

I am having a problem with my battery, when i plug it in it begins charging and then after a 10 min or so it just stops, I un plug it and plug it back in and it starts charging again but then after a little bit it stops again.

Hi I have been having a issue with my internet speeds on my laptops and PC.

I have got 200mb internet and when i run a speed test on my phone i get around 180mb + but on my laptop i am getting around 40-50mb. The wifi card in my laptop is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230. Is the problem with my wifi card or is it something else. If it is my wifi card can you tell me an alternative i could buy to replace it.
So I have a lenova yoga 2 11 And when I press the turn on button The display name shows up like it should then he proceeds to a dark blue screen stays there for about 30 seconds to a minute turns off. I?ve tried looking this up but found no results. I have no idea what this could be.
Hi guys , i just want to ask something , if i buy gtx 1050 can i run gta 5 on ultra graphics? And what fps can i get
Hello! So I can't figure out what's the problem with my laptop after replacing DC power jack. I check wiring pinouts and everything - I think I have connected everything correctly, but when I connect my power cable, nothing happens except one of the components gets really hot (I don't know what is it, but there's lenovo logo on it. I think it's chipset or something) and I can't turn on my laptop.What should I look for? DIY only. 
As I'm using the laptop, it will suddenly bring a black screen and then right away go back to my original screen and would do that again and again. What does this mean?I ran a hardware test and it said the PCI/PCI-e test is invalid. Any recommendations for what I should do?Thanks
The touch pad on the T470 is too big and interferes with my use of the laptop. How can I disable the outer part of it?I'm using windows 7, as well.
I really, REALLY hate these new Windows formats....I can never find anything!

I had an icon on my taskbar for what used to be the Start Menu (the one with all the programs listed).
Some how that has disappeared off my taskbar and I don't remember where I got it from. I've searched the pc for it and I don't find anything related to a start screen icon.

Anybody have any ideas where I can get it? Or maybe how to get it back if it was accidentally deleted from the taskbar??
When using internet exployer in windows 10, when looking at news, when I scrool its stop and go. When using Microsoft edge, I don't have this problem. How can I correct this problem with IE?
Just like the topic says. I have an older K330B that I want to use for some gaming. I have added a newer Radeon video card and upgraded the PSU to support the new card.  With the PSU connected to the video card, the system power up at boot (fans, etc), but the display never gets a signal.With the PSU disconnected from the video card, the system boots up fine. In the BIOS (DPKT21A 08.08.2011) there does NOT seem to be a choice for using PCI v. IGD. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm shocked...Mini history: I've owned a 2nd hand Notebook with Windows 7 that was so basic, that you couldn't even change the wallpaper, and kept it for over 6 years. That little thing was getting pretty slow, unable to keep up with demands anymore, so I got this new laptop, on boxing day not even a month ago.  What.. on.. earth?  I'm going to ignore the fact that the advertised photo shows this laptop to have a CD Drive on most websites.. which is doesn't. Instead I'd like to know why every other time I load this laptop, it takes longer than a PS4 upgrading.. and why if I dare to send the laptop into Sleep Mode, it fails to even 'wake up' again, requiring me to reboot the laptop.  Why is it that opening a Google Chrome window takes as long as 2 minutes, and the same for any other software I choose to open (we're talking Spotify and Word.. I don't use this laptop for anything demanding like video games or Photoshopping). Is this what happens when you spend over 300GBP on a laptop these days? I miss my ancient little notebook which could run youtube videos better than this NEW laptop which isn't even a month old. I've read on another thread, to delete McAfee. I have just now. I hope it helps.. but in the meantime, any other solutions? Hey LENOVO! What.. THE HELL! ... thanks for any advice... this is shameful and hard to understand....
Laptop seems to run faster with better internet such as loading applications and loading speed in games. It runs agonizingly slower when on slower wifi which shouldn't be a problem in most cases right? I moved homes and have experienced different internet here although it is 100 mbps, I am getting slow run times on my laptop. It was noticeably faster back at my old home and I am wondering if it has to do with viruses. I also get popup notifications of "prizes" and such in my bottom-right corner and am not sure if it's dangerous or not.

I do not have access to a boot cd or install software.
Can someone tell me how to configure malwarebytes for max security?
I have reason to believe/I know has access and or control of this laptop l know whom this person is.  its the other half of this situation. Due to the fact that be are no a couple anymore.  But he wont leave me alone.so  please can you help

In XP I had a very handy free utility which displayed in the dropdown context menu on the desktop. It offered two items "save desktop icon layout", and "restore desktop icon layout".I can't locate a similar utility for Windows 7 64 bit.Does anyone know of one that's available?Thanks for any suggestions.

So, I have a game (EXE) file on my desktop. It always worked before, but this time, when I tried to open it, it would wait there and then stop opening. This happened with many other files as well. Tried using regedit, the settings were normal, so I just
can't seem to find the problem! If somebody could help me out with this, that would be great.
