    Yes, the PC is on 24/7.

    But now that I look at the Task Scheduler again, I think that the Windows Defender task is to update the definitions, not to start a scan.

    Thanks, Joe.
    I read the material in the links, then went to Task Scheduler and found that it is set up to scan every day at 3:00 am.

  10. Will the Win 10 (looks like Win 7) backup make a clone?

    Fred Langa's Windows Secrets article on using the features of Windows Backup didn't make it clear to me if I can clone my C: drive with it. A cloned drive has saved the day when disaster occurred in...

    Windows 10 restarting by itself

    A week after upgrading to 10, I came back to my machine after a few idle hours and found the lock screen waiting for my password. The machine must have restarted while I was away.

    You nailed it! Thanks very much.

    I looked at the many patches that were available, but didn't notice there was one hiding in there for the Win10 upgrade, just not seeing what was in plain sight.
