Noel I booted my new dell today installed the widows update but not the video driver for the Nivida Quadro 4000 offered by windows update. Don't know which driver is best for it.
I also installed the Dell updates they had on their site for my system. None were for the Nividia Quadro 4000
Windows backup failed with I/o error on the cheap 4TB external usb3 seagate drive I just got. I need to test the drive. Do you know of a good free drive test program?
So I did a backup on to the internal hard drive which worked. I also created a recovery DVD.
I see some applications installed on the system I don't know:
1.) Dell Backup and Recovery Manager is installed. What is that about? Do you use it? Does it involve a cloud server and a subscription and a cost?
2.) Dell Client System Update application installed. When I ran that it found a recommended Dell update for Quadro 600??? did not install it. It also found a optional BIOS update. I may install that.
3.) Dell Data Protection | Access what is that about??? Looks like it may be a tool a corporation IT department might use...
4.) Dell System Detect which was installed when I had Dell's web site detect my service tag.
5.) Lastly it looks like Dell installed a trial "Trend Micro Client/Server Security Agent... Though on the task bar the up triangle seem to indicate activation for the Trend Micro security agent is required.
The windows Control Panel, System and Security, Action Center shows
1.) Windows firewall on and Trend Personal Firewall off
2.) Virus protection Trend Micro Client/Server Security Agent Antivirus reports that it is up to date and virus scanning is on
3:) Windows Defender and Trend Micro Client/Server Agent Anti-spyw both report they are turned on
Note:Running two on more can cause you computer to run slow....
What do you use for Antivirous and Firewall. Lately I have given up on Norton Internet Security and have uninstalled it from my windows systems and I just use the Windows Firewall and install Microsoft Security Essentials. Don't know if this is any good.
