  • Why bother? Just uninstall MWB - and then install one of the many significantly more effective android security products freely available.... https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2017 ...
  • I'm tired of seeing people recommending/promoting Malwarebytes - it's simply not justified... https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/avc_sp_pcpitstop_201702_en.pdf https://www.a ...
  • You said that before. That code number is not the particular PC model number, which is what I had asked. What is your difficulty in quoting the PC model number? Never mind.
  • I ask/asked out of interest and curiosity. There might be 'no need', but you could show courtesy in answering the question.
  • Is that a 'BIOS' level boot device stage - or a 'Boot Manager' (that Windows may install) ? I think the problem might be that you have two two boot managers (one on each physical drive) - normally ...
  • It's just the same old over-hyped paranoia. The vast majority of people may never even encounter the associated malware (which, supposedly, does not exist as yet). Furthermore, it's likely that ...
  • You should scan your PC hard drive for file system errors (as I suggested earlier ) - file system errors/corruption of your PC hard drive is far more likely to stall a backup. If you do a Google ...
  • I cannot really know. The Windows backup might be a little slower, but not as slow as you seem to be getting. One issue that can cause things to 'hang' might be a corrupt disk/file system - ...
  • Would need to know the exact model number. It is nearly always on a label somewhere on the case. For example, I have an old HP Compaq Presario SR1000 - but 'SR1000' is just a 'family/series' of ...
  • Unfortunately you have used incorrect numbers right from the start... Unfortunately that's wrong. USB 2.0 is a 'theoretical' 480 mega- bits per second (bits - not bytes). Furthermore, the real ...
  • Replied in Backups ...
    That does seem far too long. Personally I don't like the Windows Backup for several reasons... i) The Windows backups are not as well compressed as they could be (compared to other vendors). ii) ...
  • FWIW It appears that a version 1.0 of the motherboard is fully populated. 6 SATA connections - also, 4 DRAM memory slots - and 3 PCie x1 slots...
  • Do you see a white socket labelled 'Mini Card1' below the long black PCIe slot - this would most probably be your PCI Express Mini Card slot... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#MINI-CARD I ...
  • This sounds like you have a very different motherboard. While it is possible that one or other slot could be x1 - I think it would be highly unusual. When you are finished doing your backup etc - ...
  • Well, the HP specifications (link above) do say... Motherboard description Manufacturer's name: MSI HP/Compaq name: Orchid2-S SSID: 2B35 So - is there an ID printed on your motherboard, for example ...
  • Is there anything already plugged in to either of these 'two long ones' ? I wonder whether you may be looking at the RAM memory slots (?) - in which case I would expect at least one memory slot to ...
  • Malwarebytes is 'second rate' malware protection (and I'm being generous). Scroll down to page 8 of this AV-Comparatives report... https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/avc_and ...
  • Bravo 'deednets' (no idea who you are - I just stumbled across your post by chance) - wise decision - life is too short. Too short to waste getting sucked into all the inane ...
  • I didn't say that you should - I said that I would/might myself. If I see or suspect someone of flagrantly committing fraud, against both the original software rights owners, and possibly the ...
  • I would say, with near certainty, that such 'craigslist sellers' will be selling illegal/pirated/'cracked' software. Personally I would alert the appropriate authorities (e.g. police, or consumer ...
