  1. Customer guidance for CVE-2019-0708 | Remote Desktop Services Remote Code Execution Vulnerability: May 14, 2019 - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4500705/customer-guidance-for-cve-2019-0708 It belongs in this topic, so I added.
  2. Sorry. I tried to post source code for a gmail using the code tags, because I thought I would be able to print it from here, because it puts me in a loop of endless pages when I try to print it as a txt file, but received a HTTP 504 Status Code (Gateway Timeout) gateway: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/http-504-gateway-timeout.html
  3. Smart Check: Passed Quick Check (DST): Passed Of the two options, Quick Check and comprehensive check, I chose Quick Check. Does it mean everything's okay? What a relief! Thanx for suggesting the test. May I send you a Huweii phone I never unboxed yet, to root it and get out the spyware?
  4. Thanx, @Porthos. To conclude, updating HP printer software or not had nothing to do with the screen? Here are the instructions: To confirm this, test the hardware in the HP UEFI Diagnostics: Repeatedly press Esc upon startup Select F2 (System Diagnostics) Select the desired language Navigate to component tests Select Hard drive If these the test fails, this confirms the hard drive failure. If you are under warranty, contact HP: What signifies the failure? What am I looking for? "Test failed?"
  5. Porthos, exile360. and SPDIF, thanx for your responses! Getting caught up . . . It booted fine. At first, I thought it is because I didn't update HP envy Printer software . . . Also, this refurbished laptop from September 2016, operating Windows 7 Professional, is a Probook, so it IS HP. I didn't think the message was related to the laptop, I thought it is because I didn't update the printer software. I operate sans battery, always at home, plugged in, on top of a wire cooling rack (for baking). So far, it has been operating okay . . . Should I do the F2 diagnostics, Porthos? My laptop reboots it seems like from a remote source sometimes when I do intense research zeroing in on something.
  6. My PC rebooted, and there was a message like this before the Windows screen launched. What does it mean?
  7. Thank you, AdvancedSetup / Staff!!! Don't think I'll upgrade anytime soon . . .
  8. Hi Porthos, Thanx Just downloaded the Microsoft End of Support FAQ pdf: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=2076687 and you are right! Splork commented on ZDNet the security updates might have code planted that will cause more vulnerabilities, forcing enterprise to purchase more expensive updates subscription (it increases year by year), and proving Windows 7 insecure for the long term. It sounds far-fetched, but what about the forced updates to Windows 10 a couple of years ago? That was naughty. Conclusion: I'll go without the updates, even if I had access. How much will staying patched on Windows 7 cost you? Here's the price list https://www.zdnet.com/article/how-much-will-staying-patched-on-windows-7-cost-you-heres-the-price-list/
  9. @ Ron, Thank you! @ Amaroq_Starwind , I had to google ESU to figure out it means, HP Essential System Updates for Windows 10. What you said about vulnerabilities being fixed by Malwarebytes, ditto! - https://accellis.com/windows-7-support-ends-in-2020 Also, I have Pro. Guess I'll purchase the extension svcs through Microsoft. I don't want to switch! Since I have my refurbished laptop, with no Office installed, and with Malwarebytes Premium, it runs a like a dream. Maybe it's a long stretch I had no problems with it. Early on, I had BSD, and was helped on this forum.
  10. Hi, Is anyone talking about this? Microsoft announced support for Windows 7 is ending January 2020. Can Malwarebytes help? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsforbusiness/end-of-windows-7-support The last bullet point question states Windows Pro users can pay into a plan for updates through 2023. What do you say? Thank you. Louise
  11. exile360 , i love ya! As a little isolated person who observes shady things, it's nice to have some commiseration! Separate Topic: What have I done? I downloaded HandBrake from: https://handbrake.fr No problem so far, but CNET users complain that the link CNET provided bungled but I think I downloaded from a safe site, than the one they downloaded from.
  12. Thank you thank you thank you! I am much reassured by your answer #1. The other is superficial. It is a reasonable question in today's climate, where innovators launch a good thing, and the $$ is too good to refuse to fall into questionable investors' hands. For instance, Lifelock was bought by Synantec, then its users' email addresses were exposed . . . Isn't that a surprise?
  13. (1) May I ask, is Malwarebytes owned by the same owner as ten years ago? Or, it has brought aboard new investors? Or, new management? (2) Once the update is complete, I shouldn't have to be plugged in to the internet to complete the scan. Or, it didn't used to be. (3) It used to be, I had to actually be connected to the internet for the, "Check for Updates" to do its thing. Now the graphic shows completed, with no connection. View attached. (4) If need be I will make a movie of what is taking place on screen showing the connection is turned off during, "Check for Updates."
