Windows updated itself this morning. Everything seems to be OK so far.

I have installed the new Your Phone app which links my PC and my smartphone. I can now send and receive phone text messages on my PC.
Does that work with iOS devices like the iPhone?
Yes, but so far there is more functionality with Android phones.

If you have a Google Account (Gmail), you can do the same if you use Google Hangouts as your messaging app. I find it very useful to send/receive desks on my desktop while I'm at work.


I've heard this bull before.

Yes, I have used Hangouts with a Google Voice number but not with my cell phone number.

Burp in recent update of Microsoft Defender package
Update for Windows Defender antimalware platform
Applies to: Windows DefenderWindows 10Windows Server 201
6

Summary
This article describes an antimalware platform update package for Windows Defender for the following operating systems:

Windows 10 (Enterprise, Pro, and Home editions)
Windows Server 2016

Known issues in this update

New file path

Because of a change in the file path location in the update, many downloads are blocked when AppLocker is enabled.

To work around this issue, open Group Policy, and then change the setting to Allow for the following path:

%OSDrive%\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Platform\*

Secure Boot issue in version 4.18.1901.7

Some devices that are running Windows 10 do not start if they have Secure Boot turned on.

We are working on this issue and plan to provide a fix in a future update. To work around this issue in the meantime, follow these steps:

Restart the device, and enter the BIOS.

Turn off Secure Boot, and then restart the device again.

In an administrative Command Prompt window, run the following command:

"%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Platform\4.18.1901-7\MpCmdRun.exe" -revertplatform

Wait for one minute, and then do the following:

Run sc query windefend to verify that the Windows Defender service is running.

Run sc qc windefend to verify that the Windows Defender binary no longer points to version 4.18.1901.7.

Restart the device, re-enter the BIOS, and then turn on Secure Boot.
