Understanding "Posted UpDates"??

by Wattash / April 9, 2006 12:35 AM PDT

I do not understand what the UPDATES which are posted on a almost daily basis are. How is the information listed to be used? Is it information for installing virus up dates for spacific AV programs that differant
people use, or is it just for information on new viruses that have been found out there?? Just need a little help undrestanding what I'm looking at and how to use it?? TKS.

The update thread is for updates,whether they are viruses,spyware,trojans,and so on.There are occasions when an individual posts a question regarding an update issue.

The update thread is also for non virus programs,such as ccleaner,belarch,msba,and so on

The virus alert thread is specifically for information on new viruses and such.This thread does not accept question or comments (at least i think so)

Hi Tom,

Questions or comments is welcome on any topic or thread as long as the message is about the posted item.

Reason: Some users will use search engine to get some answer or idea or information about viruses and if they happen to found the information in the virus alerts thread thru search engine. They can post question or comments about the said virus. They can also post by starting own topic. Both are OK. Usually new members or new users are not familiar with what regular members know so it's OK.

Hope this helps Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
