    As of March 24, 2020, Microsoft released update KB4052623 for the Windows Defender anti-malware platform for Windows 10. Since then I have had reports of problems; the offline scan should be broken and there are unexpected errors. I can’t confirm any of these bugs.

    It will be worse before it will be any better. And I can’t see the needed change will come the next 10 years. Win 10 Enterprise 2019 LTSC is good for another 9 years:) Another options are Linux. Everything is better than what this mess will be.

    I wonder how will Windows 10 (the last Windows version as per Microsoft, might as well remove the number and just call it Windows) be 3 years from now.....

    I'm just pleased that they've stopped updating Windows (well almost!) during Covid, I knew there was a bright side!

    "Windows 10 Security: Change Your Password To A PIN, Says Microsoft"

    - The insider notes for Windows 10 20H1 Build 18936 include details on how Microsoft is pushing for passwordless sign-in to Microsoft accounts on devices.

    - This will be optional, by way of Settings|Accounts|Sign-in options using the new settings app that is slowly but surely replacing the old control panel.

    - ...how a PIN can be more secure than a password? The key is understanding what the PIN protects here and how a PIN actually works in this context.

    - "The PIN is tied to the specific device on which it was set up. That PIN is useless to anyone without that specific hardware." It's a second factor, in other words, the first being physical access to the Windows 10 device itself.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/daveyw...users-change-passwords-for-pins/#5f7f732e64c6


    A most welcome change - tying a device id / PIN to a login.
