Interesting read regarding Windows 11 security.

Windows 11 is out. Is it any good for security? - Malwarebytes Labs | Malwarebytes Labs

In all honesty I can't see this as being the panacea that it is made to look like.

Wasn't win10 and all the previous OSes before that meant to bring security improvements.  But it didn't take the malware/exploits too long to catch up.  Hell the big point of having UEFI and TPM 2.0 enabled CPUs, may even fall foul to a very recent bootkit exploit that can circumvent these functions/checks.

Windows is a HUGE target for the miscreant malware writers/hackers, etc.  Is it better than win10 and previous win OSes, probably, but certainly not the end for malware, but the start of a new game.
Especially since Microsoft has lifted some of it's security enhancements and allowed
installation on systems that don't meet their initial requirements.
The bypass is posted on the Microsoft update website.

I think more optical illusion rather than 3D as such, when viewed through the 2D medium of your flat screen computer.

But very interesting though.

New Media Player for Windows 11 begins rolling out to Windows Insiders
https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/11/16/new-media-player-for-windows-11-begins-rolling-out-to-windows-insiders/
Here's a screenshot I just took of that new Media Player.

I run three Windows 11 versions. The actual release, the beta and the Developer version.
This Media player is currently only available on the Developer version.

Windows 11 Creating Many Empty Folders

https://youtu.be/fqFgT6SzCbw
This is something Microsoft needs to address.
You'll find the empty folders here,
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData
Let Ccleaner Clean Up this Reoccurring Mess

Let Ccleaner clean these temp folders till Windows gets its house in order.
Ccleaner > Options > Include - paste the following for a default installation of Windows
under Drive or Folder:
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\tw*.tmp
Next under options select "Include files, subfolders and the folder itself"
Once that's done, select OK
Select yes in the warning that comes up from Ccleaner.
Next, Run Ccleaner. Here's the proof that it works.

I knew there had to be an easier way than doing this manually every few days.
Thanks Ccleaner
