Microsoft’s Windows Security acts like an airbag: It will protect you, regardless of whether you know it exists … Learn More!

What most folks do not realize is that Windows 10 has a security package baked into the operating system to protect you. Do you need to purchase additional protection? My thoughts on that is “NO”… I have several Windows 10 based PC’s and I do not use any additional protection. As a matter of fact, I have been doing computers for over 30 years and I have never purchased anti-virus or anti-malware protection. In the past I did rely on the FREE security protection that was available; but, today I stick what is baked into Windows 10. The browsers we use today are also better at protecting us and that factors into my thinking on this, as well. All a matter of preference; but, “this is my story and I am sticking to it”… Below is a video and source links, at PCWorld, that will give insight on how Windows Security actually performs…

The app you’re trying to install isn’t a Microsoft verified app… How to bypass this message…

To help us safeguard our computers, Windows only publishes trusted applications to the Microsoft Store. The software you download from other sources outside the Microsoft Store can contain malware or bugs. This is why the system is set by default not to install applications that aren’t Microsoft-verified.

The Windows Club (see source link below), will show you how to bypass this restriction and install apps from any source onto your PC.
