One of the best things about the Windows Phone OS is that no AV protection is needed at all. It's far more secure than Android.

Thats a reason why i do not like Android........

But sooner or later Windows Mobile may be targeted depending on the user base.

When you have hardly any users (percentage wise) who would spend the time to hack the system ???

Indeed. It's surprisingly secure due to virtualization/sandboxing.
I could never understand why didn't these technologies migrate to PC...

Windows 10 Insider Build 11102

Known issues: http://www.winbeta.org/news/known-issues-windows-10-redstone-insider-preview-build-11102

Release Notes: http://www.winbeta.org/news/microsoft-releases-windows-10-redstone-insider-build-11102
The first known issue would be a complete deal breaker for me. I'm glad I left Insider after the launch of 10.

I upgraded my newest computer to windows 10 around a week ago.  I like it but I can't find the control panel in start list.  I go to settings, search, type in control panel and that's the only way I can find it.

Could someone please tell me an easier way?

Thank you.

I'm not using that computer right now.

Right-click the start button and choose Control Panel :)

It will be removed later on in Windows and replaced by the settings app bit for bit.

I still use 'Classic Start Menu' and Control Panel is right there on the upper right.
