  1. Sorry, I didn't fully clarify. Win10 shows Avast as the AV so Avast is running and providing active protection. Windows Defender is used for supplemental scans on-demand. I think Avast may disable Windows Defender from being active when Avast installs. I use CCleaner to clean cookies, etc as part of my maintenance and run MBAM and Spybot then as well - or anytime I suspect something may be amiss.
  2. Honestly, you couldn't pay me to use Norton - very intrusive. I've used Avast for over 10 years without issue. I don't use their browser, just the basic AV. Couple that with Malwarebytes Antimalware, Spybot S&D, CCleaner and now Windows Defender in Win10 - and paying attention to sites I visit - haven't had any issues at all. Avast and WD run full time, the others I run as needed.
  3. How about using your existing email address and seeing if there is a "I forgot my password" link. That should send something to your email address with a new password or a link to reset your password.
  4. Bought KDEN for MSFS last night. Wonderful upgraded from the default enhanced DEN in the premium deluxe version. Thanks for the discount for owners of KDEN for P3D. I am bias as I live 20 minutes from it, but I would like to see KPHX in MSFS. Maybe show it some love via an update in P3D first and then release it for MSFS. Mir, whatever you choose to do next, know that I (along with many others) appreciate your hard work and dedication to the flight sim community.
  5. What is the native resolution of your monitor? If it is greater than what you posted, you are good to go. The resolution of your video driver should be set to the native resolution of your monitor.
  6. Apparently he is well. His latest post to Facebook was yesterday. He is active in the FB Prepar3d P3D Users Group and P3D / X-Plane & FSX Flight Sim Group.
  7. I think you may want to keep the MS linked account in case of a Windows activation issue, reinstall or a hardware issue. I think your Windows key/activation it tied to your hardware and that MS account. I don't know what happens if you delete that account or if you can uninstall/delete Edge. But if you don't regularly use either, no data goes to MS that is related to the MS account or Edge.
  8. Here is how to setup a local account with Win 10 1909 https://www.howtogeek.com/442609/confirmed-windows-10-setup-now-prevents-local-account-creation/
  9. You're welcome Rick. To be clear, my license key is linked to my MS account, same as yours. The only reason I did this is so my license is store digitally on the MS servers. But I don't use that account to log onto the computer unless I have an issue I can't solve otherwise. I use the secondary account for day to day operations. This is on my old Win 7, upgraded to Win 10 system. On my new system, I purchased a Win 10 Pro USB stick and used the following to install Win 10. https://windowsreport.com/install-windows-10-without-microsoft-account/ Just scroll past the advertisements....... I do get a nag after login that there is a problem with my MS account, which I ignore. Small price topay for not using an MS account.
  10. Similar to this: https://www.digitalcitizen.life/create-local-non-microsoft-account-windows I know it works with Win 10 Pro - not sure about Win 10 Home
  11. I certainly agree with you about them having too much of our info. But I did use an MS account when upgrading from Win7 to Win10 as MS then stores my activation key in their system. I then created a second computer sign in that isn't tied to an MS account. I signed out of the MS linked account and use the second sign in for daily use. If I ever need to access the activation key for any reason (reinstallation or an activation error), I can sign in to the MS account.
  12. Did you tie your Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7 to a Microsoft account? If so, are you logged into that Microsoft account? You should be abletoreactivateWin10 that way.
  13. Would it be best to do a clean install or is updating through the program a good option also? Thanks
