No, I have blocked all updates from MS.

I have no problems at all with Q4OS. Linux is not hard to learn as some people claim. In fact it is a pleasure to use.

I will never use Windows 10, but I have no such antipathy towards Windows 7. There is neither love nor hate. It doesn't annoy me or offend me, so I simply don't mind using it when I feel inclined to.

Computer security is not something that I worry about. If ever I get infected, it will be a simple thing to wipe the hard disk clean. Then I recover my system with one of the weekly system images that I create. I know that this sort of attitude is not looked upon with favour by the majority of computer users, not to mention those security experts. But I don't see any problem with it. This of course is entirely my personal view. I am talking about it only because you asked me.

In a security forum I saw that some people make system images every 30 minutes for this eventuality. My needs are quite modest. A weekly image will do fine with me.

I hope this answers your questions.

Thank you.
