So I got a Win10 update today. For those of you who have Win10 and hate it, you can guess where this is going. It took 4 hours for my laptop to update. Granted, it's an old POS so that's probably the reason. I wasn't too upset about it. It was interrupting my work flow, but I just went and took a nap and let it do its thing. I get up and it's finished. I login to my comp, and the first thing I see in my message center is "Windows Defender needs to scan your computer." It's got this big yellow alert sign next to it like it's so freaking important. And I'm sitting here like "Wtf?" I don't remember installing Windows Defender on my computer. EVER. I use Avast. I love Avast. I'm sticking with Avast. Has Windows Defender always been on there? Or is this just one of those new stupid things that they're forcing you to install claiming it's an "update" and not really giving you a choice to ignore it? Either way I'm irked. I don't want this crap on my computer. I was fine without it. I'm gonna see if I can uninstall it. I don't care how much "Windows recommends it." Of course you recommend it: you invented it!
