Re: COMPUTER BACKUPS

@ pete.i

I always run an antimalware scan before I create my monthly images.

Re: Old System Restore Points

Turning off System protection will remove all restore points for which you will get an alert and then turning it back on will start afresh.

I'd then go into Device Manager/View/Show hidden devices...

Re: chrome adblocker

If I'd been seeing things like that, I'd probably run a scan with AdwCleaner.

Re: Win 10 Notification 15//2/18

Re: windows 10 activation

It should auto activate but see what message you get before entering the reboot cmd.
