  8. Hi Kevin I am now back on the original user. Also a no go on the CHKDSK as ADMINISTRATOR. I tried 3x with normal restarts and hard power down. Also tried the sfc /scannow in command prompt. Also did not execute. Then I tried to run Easeus Tools M out of frustration, but there it would not even let me choose the drive (same as when we started this whole process.) Question from a total novice. Would a repair from installation disk not do the trick? Worrier

  17. Kevin. Here's the article copied and pasted. FullscreenxUpdate: The story was updated with Kaspersky Labs comments.This is a story of how a “feature” that exists in all of Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus software for Windows since 2016, which was discovered by a German journalist earlier this year, led to a major security issue that let cybercriminals track millions of Kaspersky customers without their knowledge.It all started when Ronald Eikenberg, a reporter at German computer magazine C’t, began testing antivirus software for the March issue of his publication.
