  1. IP range 169.254.x.x is a microsoft-provisioned DHCP address for nodes that cannot communicate with a valid DHCP server. So one has to ask why they are using them?
  2. For a home user I would suggest you avoid RDP and just use RemotePC. For one system it is ideal and, if you install the client end instead of using the web console, you can also do file transfer. It is free for personal use but you can only have control over 1 system. So to remote to another you would have to halt the services on one, de-list it from RemotePC and start services on another and then list that one. I would have suggested TeamVIewer but they have clamped down on that product if you are remoting to a personal system from within a corporate environment...although some users are also complaining that they are nowhere near a corporate network but are being penalised. Currently, it is borked to an unusable time limit of 60 seconds - although they claim that the time limit is 5 minutes
  3. You have just stated that defender DOES detect 100% of infections, and no product is best at detecting all. In any sane and logical world you cannot have it both ways.
  4. I had a power outage at home and when power was restored my bios clock had reset. The date difference causes Smart Security, etc to flag all websites, certificates, etc as invalid. It took me some clicks to realise it was the clock that was the problem. However, now a few sites do not show images or comments, etc as I had blocked a few things which looked suspicious and ESET declared were invalid/unknown certificates but were not. It would be a good idea to clearly indicate that the clock may be the problem (time synchronisation). This surely cannot be a problem to achieve if the ESET software can figure out that a datestamp for a certificate may be out of synch. As an aside, how do I now fix the blocked links I previously clicked?
