Windows Users Listen Up! In preparation for the roll-0ut of a new browser to replace their security riddled Internet Explorer, Microsoft has spent a great deal of effort and money on the recruitment of malware authors to systematically exploit weaknesses in the security of the Google Chrome browser. And they have succeeded. Formerly the most secure browser for Windows 7, Chrome has been hosting malware attacks that very closely mimic a typical Microsoft Update window in any Windows 7 computer that uses Chrome as its default browser. Over the last three weeks, my Windows 7 Acer laptop has gotten malware infections from Tivoli, Tapika, and others. After these attacks, the only available search engine on any browser will be one crafted to direct your computer to gather more malware attacks. The only reason I could do anything but watch a 3 ring malware circus play itself out on my Windows laptop was because I had a fully functional Mac to search for and download the remedies. MalwareBytes can quarantine and remove the malware infections and even block Chrome from installing new ones, but until and unless you change the default browser back to Internet Explorer, Chrome will continue to be complicit in simulating Microsoft Update patches which are nothing but malware. The idea is transparent. Microsoft wants to unseat Chrome as the best browser to use with windows because they are crafting their new roll-out browser after the way Chrome works, with most of the code to run their browser "in the cloud". My attempt to mitigate the Chrome attacks by uninstalling and reinstalling what little there is of Chrome on my local computer was not effective in slowing down the attempted malware attacks. Microsoft is the only one with a vested interest in making users believe that their new browser is more secure than Chrome. Don't fall for it again. Make Microsoft eat the money they poured into encouraging malware authors to sabotage Chrome. Don't install their new browser. Switch to Linux or to Mac and let Microsoft find out what its like to have 0% market share. I can think of no company more deserving of turning our backs on and for everyone to just stop buying their security hole ridden and misbegotten ideas about the way software should work. My Acer is switching to the Linux OS the second I have no need to support the Windows software on my wife's computer. I've purchased the last Windows OS and the last versions of Office I will ever own a license to. It's time for Microsoft to go away and never come back. Their Windows OS is a bad joke, and that joke is on the people foolish enough to buy into it.
