It's been barely a day since I got windows back and I'm furious about all these malware. Should have stuck with fedora

    PEBCAK. It's really hard to have malware if using computer properly.

    Open Microsoft store
    Disable updates and suggestions

    I got my Win7 installation running since 2010 without even a reinstall, let alone malware.

    Maybe it's because I don't click on jessica_supermodel_naked.jpg.exe or unrequested_fake_invoice.pdf.exe and don't use cracked software of keygens.

    @Fast-Nop Windows 10 self installs candy crush and other apps on fresh install. It’s a pain, but easy to disable once you know where they hide the settings.

    @irene but blaming Microsoft is cool. Nobody will consider you techie unless you write something against Microsoft

    @irene Windows way of making money I guess. They call it “suggestions” but keep installing apps without consent from the ms store, even if using a local account.

    Ms store needs an online account so either way they win this one.

    @C0D4 store doesn't need account always. Only for some apps I guess.

    @C0D4 You get suggestions, if you don't deactivate it, but I never got apps installed automatically! (Besides the few apps after a fresh install)

    Furthermore you only need a windows account, if you want to buy apps in the store. All free apps are downloadable without an account.
