Learn What “LockApp.exe” is on Windows 10

“LockApp.exe” is one of those hidden tasks that you don’t initially see unless you run the Windows Task Manager. The Windows Club (follow the source link below) will educate you on “LockApp.exe” and will provide steps to disable it. When I see “exe’s” such as this running; especially with a name like “LockApp.exe” I become very skeptical as to what it is actuall for and whether or not it is not a malware payload.

Its an official application from Microsoft, and is part of the default lock screen app on Windows. It’s safe. It is usually located under Windows > SystemApps > Microsoft.LockApp_XXXXXX> LockApp.exe. It is possible that this could be doing a lot more than that including notifying you about an update when you unlock your PC.

How To Scan Your Computer For Malware With Google Chrome

This is an interesting tidbit about Google Chrome’s ability to scan your Windows-based computer for malware. I tested this on a Google Chromebook and it would not launch; but, never the less, this is great. I encourage you to read and learn more about this by clicking on the source link below.

What To Do When You Get A Robocall

105143686-robotvera1.530x298

Here are some tips on how to manage and reduce those Robocalls:

If you see a number you don’t recognize, even if it’s from a local area code, let the message go to voicemail. If it’s important — say a message from a school nurse — you’ll get a voicemail.

If you pick up, you should end the call immediately after you realize it’s a pre-recorded message.

“Hang up the phone,” FTC attorney Kati Daffan advises. “Don’t press one to speak to a live operator. And don’t press any other number to get off the list. If you respond by pressing any number, it will probably just lead to more robocalls.”
