Windows Defender Review

Tom’s Guide has a pretty good review of the free antivirus / antimalware program Windows Defender / Microsoft Defender / Windows Security in a post called Windows Defender Review:

I am glad that Windows Defender / Microsoft Defender / Windows Security (Microsoft keeps changing the name) is continuing to improve.

A Stressful Work Dream

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it probably took place at The BP Library, I was there working, and there was a very large print job that needed to be done.

Maybe Mrs. CR was trying to figure out how and what to print, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

I had problems sleeping when it was almost time to wake up for work, and this dream possibly disrupted my sleep.

This dream took place at The BP Library, and I was there working at my IT Assistant job.

A deaf patron named Mr. G was by the computer lab closest to the DVD section, there was a somewhat older man with light-color skin with him, and Mr. G handed me a sheet of paper with a note saying that he needed help with something.

Mr. G had a USB flash drive, a laptop with Microsoft Windows as the operating system (maybe Windows 7), and his note seemed to be asking for help maybe playing a video that was on the flash drive but it was not clear so I had to try to ask him by writing notes on paper for him to read.

His laptop was probably infected with malware, most of his software was out-of-date, and VLC Media Player (VLC) was crashing the last time that I tried to use it so I was not sure how we were going to get that video to play because the video was in a format that the default Windows Media Player would probably not play without having to install the codecs for it.

I was having problems writing for some reason, and this situation was making me feel stressed as I struggled to write correctly while trying to decide how to handle this situation.

I remember trying to decide which anti-malware program would be best for him to use to scan the computer with, if I should even risk suggesting that because we are not even supposed to deal with things like this if it is the patron’s own property and not ours, trying to figure out what other options we had, et cetera while struggling to communicate with Mr. G and the other man through writing notes and using body language / hand signs et cetera because Mr. G is deaf and I do not know sign language.

I wanted to help him but doing so would be outside our usual rules and his laptop was probably so messed up that it would take a long time and something could go wrong and it was possibly so damaged by malware that it would possibly need to have Microsoft Windows reinstalled, also like the last time he was probably not happy and I was having flashbacks of past stressful computer jobs, and so this was stressing me.

I possibly went in and out of being semi-sleep during this, my body felt a bit hot and stressed, and this went on until it was time to wake up for work.

So I woke up feeling stressed, a bit hot, a bit tired, et cetera like I had really been at work during a stressful day; and so that was not fun, and then I had to go to work after just dreaming of working in more than one dream. 😀

The end,

Going To A Movie Theater & Food Stand In A Shopping Mall

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it took place during the day in a fictional LC-like city, and my parent’s and I were in this city possibly visiting my brothers KD and TD at college but I am not sure.

At some point my parent’s and I drove to a shopping mall in separate automobiles, my parent’s were probably with me at the mall at first, but at some point I do not remember seeing them anymore.

Talking With The Female Synth Hester From Humans

Last night, I stayed up too late again trying to fix the last computer left to fix, which has a bad hard drive.

I spent most of my Christmas holiday fixing computers, removing malware, updating, installing and uninstalling programs, adjusting settings, troubleshooting, formatting and reinstalling various versions of Microsoft Windows through the recovery options on several computers.
