Oh just ban Java. It is worse than Flash when it comes to vulnerabilities.

Welcome to Vladimir Poutine's new Russia.
He should be announcing his full dictatorship shortly.
He already siphoned a reported few billion dollars from his people.
Kaspersky are a bunch of whiners.
Have Symantec, Panda, McAfee or others complained?
If they are calling Defender inferior [it is], then you have nothing to whine about.
Yes. Defender is free but it's like most people - you don't like IE [or Edge], you download your favorite browser. Only difference is that Kaspersky has no free AV offering.
They also complained that Kaspersky was uninstalled on some computers when upgrading to Win 10. That is most likely because the users is running an older version of Kaspersky that isn't compatible with Win 10.
How many Kaspersky users know they can upgrade to the latest version as long as their subscription is valid. do they advertise that?
How about sending out notifications. Something like "Before you upgrade to Windows 10, make sure Kaspersky is up to date...." Did they do that?
Seems like Kaspersky wants to rake in the money but not do any work to rake it in.
Too many "factions" at Microsoft. You have Skype vs Skype for Business vs Yammer vs Microsoft Teams.
You had previous issues with .net and Exchange that took a long while to fix - assuming it was finally fixed.
Still waiting for the holiday special and Ewok specials to be on Blu-ray. :-)
[If that happens it will rain over all of the Sahara Desert for a week.]
I'd take anything Microsoft over Google's electronic reading/trolling.
Remember. This is Drumpf's [a.k.a. 45*, a.k.a. Agent Orange] America. Lobbying, bribes, and the related don't exist in America now.
Drumpf wants big business to reek trillions in profit at the expense of the middle and lower class. Just look at his cabinet. Probably more billionaires and millionaires than any other cabinet ever.
Google is getting out of hand with their privacy invasion.
I try and disable everything I can related to them.
With their crap, soon you'll walk into a store, buy a loaf of bread and milk and the cashier will say "Don't take out your Interact card. We have it already."
Ridiculously small fine. That's 25 cents per person.
You can't fool Windows 10 with a supported web camera. Windows 10 [with camera] will detect for heat presence.
Re: Hmmm, got their work cut out
Funny that I prefer Windows Update Catalog when not using IE.
Errrr. Would you want to deploy a web browser that has had more vulnerabilities than IE for [at least] the last 3 years in a row? See https://cve.mitre.org/
In addition, before deploying Chrome, you need to verify if internal web based apps work with it and if not, whether worth it to make it compatible.
Most companies won't give a crap whether it is popular. They do, however, need to figure out if they want to support another web browser.
Re: Hmmm, got their work cut out
I don't think management cares if it is under 50% or even 5%. They care for what works with they got. If Chrome doesn't work with a company application, they won't allow it.
Same if they can't manage it well. After years Google finally got a brain and released enterprise tools.
It is not a popularity contents when it comes to companies.
Unless they changed their mind, MS already dubbed the fall update "v1709". But "v1703" was RTMed in march but only released in April.
Re: Updated to it today....
No loss there. :-)
Re: 1703, not for me
Did you get the request to upgrade or you did it on your own. If latter, not as much as MS's fault. They issued a warning not to upgrade until asked.
Did Sage's web site say v1703b is compatible?
Woohoo or Woopie!
Can't really blame HP. It's Conexant fault.
Not really related to Seagate's woes, but I won't touch their portable drives ever again. Bought one of them. Used it here and there. Shut off 99% of the time. Connected to a UPS [so power through USB wasn't needed].
Last fall, turned it on and got nothing. As if the disk didn't exist.
Went over to Best Buy. Said it wasn't the power adapter. Broke open the case and pulled out the hard disk and put it in a HD dock. It would turn on but nothing [so it wasn't the USB to drive interface]. Ran a HD diagnostics and it found thousands of errors.
Didn't take chances. Tossed the drive.
Lost hundreds of gigs of data that I accumulated over the years.
They rushed it....
The Broadcom Bluetooth hardware could be on many laptops. Why did they release this to the public? Oh ya. They gave themselves a deadline.
Originally this was supposed to be "v1704".
Re: Another day
So why do you use their software then? We see how much you like them if you use "M$" instead of "MS".
Microsoft probably lost many IE supporters when w10 came out because they used Edge as the default browser and didn't even tell novices that IE still existed. Some then flipped over to Chrome [the web browser version of Macs] and probably won't head back.
When I mentioned to some that IE was there - just hidden in the menus - I'd get "whaaaaat?" But most of them will stick with their current browser.
CNN reported that the Trump organizations and affiliates have gone after anyone with the word Trump in the domain - good or bad. Hundreds are registered to them. Most are just registrations. Some redirect to the main Trump web site. Sorry. donaldtrumpsucks.com is taken.
I've seen all kinds of videos for the far right, jihadists, ant-Semitism, Trump, conspiracy nuts, etc. and while I reported a few, none ever got pulled.
Makes no difference about freedom of speech crap, most of this stuff is illegal in many countries.
Baratov is waiting to be extradited to the US.
The id10t - at 22 years old - was flaunting his new found wealth. An Austin Martin as well as 3 other expensive cars in a fairly new home. Unless you were given money [inherited], you don't get that much money at that age.
I'm sure the house and cars will be sold off to pay for his lawyer bills in addition to Canada's taxman.
Trump with escort services? Nah.
Oh ya. Where do you think his [current] wife came from?
According to various sites, she came over to the US in a non-work Visa permit and what did she do? Get a job at Trump's escort service in New York. Since it was illegal for her to work in the US, she was paid "under the table" [hmmmm] which means she and the escort service didn't pay taxes there.
One story claimed she amassed $20,000 in 3 months. She must of done a good job escorting! :-)
Of course she learned from her [current] husband and is taking a British tabloid [I believe] to court for calling her an escort.
She wants $150 million !!!
Damages to her and her career including future earnings related to endorsements. Endorsements? Seriously? She's the First Lady.
Not really surprised an executive from a competing company would whine that the competitors are more expensive.
But at least Samsung phones will drop in price fast enough. With a promo, I paid nothing for my S7 a month after it came out [actually my provider owed me money].
Apple on the other hand doesn't drop prices much [excluding Xmas, etc.] and will only drop as a new model comes in.
That said, the iPhone 8 may hit $1000US.
Originally nicknamed v1703, it was later changed to v1704. So expect it to be available to the public in April although many won't get it until May.
The fall release is already nicknamed v1711. So likely a November release with upgrades mostly happening in December.
Don't want to be forced? Upgrade to the pro edition. Gives you options to delay.
Hmmm. Immigration department affected. I'm sure Drumpf will blame the left wing media for this.
I certified with the Desktop Support Technician certificate. 2 simple exams based on Win XP. Gives me a MCP to keep. Never certified in anything else.
Familiar [but not an expert] for all server OSs up to Server 2012 R2.
My ex-boss said he'd take someone with experience but not certified over someone newly certified but no experience any day.
$150/exam [or less] every year doesn't sound like much if need to recertify one exam.
The scammers are those learning centers that charge you $2500 for a 5 day course. Everything crammed in.
Have 3 MS accounts. None of them have my phone number. All use one of the others for verifications.
Other stuff mentioned must be you....
Re: Any practical FOSS Skype-alternatives?
Except who uses Google Hangouts? I have 70+ contacts between home & work. Nobody suggested it.
Seems Google continues to be the "poor man" 's version of everything. Inferior version of Skype. Inferior version of Facebook.
Re: Any practical FOSS Skype-alternatives?
Errrr. Microsoft forcing you to upgrade to Win 10 [from Win XP/7] because of Skype? Sure if you have an outdated Win XP. Nobody supports Win XP.
Latest Skype still works on Win 7.
You can use the web based Skype on any OS.
Re: Skype as a free alternative to H323
Which was Office Communicator before that. Skype for Business updates still shows "Lync" in the file name and "Lync" for the executable.
Re: Another Cloud con
You don't think they did it before.
Don't like it, stop using it.
They're already asking for passwords. Someone who was denied entry going from Canada to the US was forced to give up passwords.
Border officials are claiming something like "entering the US is a privilege" as an excuse.
Re: Never is a long time
>> Samsung Galaxy S* range are priced in the same area as the iPhone.
You sure about that? Apple barely drops the price except when they want to dump stock. Samsung models tend to drop in price within a month.
Only a temporary thing. Apple released the iPhone 7 - so all the fanbois and fangurls waited in line to get it. Plus it came out before the holidays. Samsung still had decent sales even with the Note 7 mess. Samsung will be back on top when the Galaxy S8 comes out very soon.
Reduce the cost to make a Mac and not pass the saving to the consumer. Perfect!
Wow. Some corporates use Webroot?
Re: @Steve Davies 3
They probably have in-house lawyers. Gives them something to do. Paid whether or not they are busy with lawsuits.
Apple can do this but it doesn't mean Qualcomm will sell parts to Apple again. Qualcomm isn't forced to sell to Apple. on the other hand, it is a big purchase.
Republicans are all hypocrites.
Oh. There is no way of knowing if the party's server is more secure than Clinton's server.
Meanwhile, according to hacker WauchulaGhost [who claimed to have hacked 500 pro-ISIS accounts], the Twitter accounts for Trump, Melania Trump and Mike Pence are more vulnerable to hackers because of a basic Twitter security setting they're not using. With a little bit of work "he" figured out that the Twitter account for Pence is a associated with a less secure Gmail account and both Trumps also use Gmail accounts.
Trump also using a non-government issued Android phone for his personal use still.

Re: Sean Spicer too
He's a real dumb ?ss.
Re: hang on...
Not made in the USA. More like designed. If it was made then add $150 to the price.
California is a Democrat state. Only reason why Arnie got in was that he's a Tinsletown celebrity [not saying he did a bad job as the Governator].
For Thiel, I wouldn't bother if [as expected] Trump makes a mess of the US.
Meanwhile 2 Linux OSs topped 2016 with the most CVEs reported. So is Windows that vulnerable?
"...acknowledge the receipt of a written warning about the dangers of deactivating the filters..." Dangers? Like? Seeing someone showing a buttock or something? It's not like texting while driving.
