So I made a few simple changes to the Registry, and this laptop is now running like an Olympics 100 meters winner. All it did was disable the real-time running of Windows Defender. I can still use it for a virus scan.

You have no security software at all keeping track of real time threats?

“My computer was running like a tired old man.”

Sometimes I run like a tired old man. Gotta tweak my registry, I guess.

My Chromebook always runs like a top!

No firewall or antivirus software necessary.

I run Ubuntu and haven’t given security a second thought for a decade. No special software installed. It just runs and stays clean all on it’s own. Does Mac get bugs or is it just a windows thing?

Yup, heh. As long as you don’t store passwords or use it for anything important, the worst that can happen is it gets totally owned by ransomeware. Then you reinstall windows and hope it’s clean (unless you got hundreds to fork over to have your PC and files unlocked - that’s if they’re trustworthy extortionists.)

Hey Pollard.

I’ve been using Linux for a couple of years now. Never needed a virus program either. Best decision I ever made was switching to Linux.

Using Linux Mint with Mate desktop.

Might try out the new Manjaro KDE for about a month.

Xubuntu is my LInux distro, though I use Windows most the time. I assume you know Linux can have security issues also - when you sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade, you are getting some security fixes. But there are dos and don’t in general, also.
I often run Ubuntu in dual boot so I have to be more careful to make sure I don’t export anything into Win by accident. Eset Nod 32 for Linux is an excellent tool that stops malware in realtime, though you have to pay for it. (The free Linux security programs aren’t realtime).
I think Mac has less bugs than Windows, for the same reason as Linux - both are not as big payoff targets for malware-makers. Linux servers are often targets, but not so much home LInux users.
Android is another huge target to get malware into - lots of users in phones & tablets.
