How to Check Your HP Laptop for the Synaptic Keylogger and Remove It
Quote
Before we get started explaining how to check your system for this particular driver, it is important to note that the keylogging was not placed in the driver for malicious reasons. It appears that it was instead being used by the driver developers to help them find bugs in the driver while it was being developed. Unfortunately, by mistake this debug trace function was not removed from the driver before it was released for production.
I like that the above paragraph is part of BC's post.  The instructions on how to check & remove the keylogger are in the referenced article.

Even though a patch was issued, it was disabled by default and was to help debug errors, being the second keylogger discovered in a year doesn't bode well for HP, which is unfortunate.  I have three devices, a 2008 laptop, 2008 desktop and the HP Stream 7 tablet.  I had seriously been considering that any replacement device would be an HP but now will be rethinking that.

Didn't it turn out that just today someone at another forum asked me about something to make Windows 8 more like Windows 7!
Yeah, I went out to dinner with some old Air Force buddies last night and one said he just bought a new W10 computer and was having problems getting used to the new UI. So I had to relay the same story - and pointed him to Start10.

Didn't it turn out that just today someone at another forum asked me about something to make Windows 8 more like Windows 7!  I explained that there would be no further development and provided a link to the main website as well as to Classic Start 8.

The original announcement from the developer is here: http://www.classicshell.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8147

I know this is sad news for the millions of Classic Shell users. This is not good for those of us who use Start8 or Start10]Start10 either because competition drives innovation and brings more options for consumers. With Start10's chief competition shutting down, it will mean fewer options for consumers, and perhaps a stagnation of Start10's development that are needed keep it current with the changes in Windows Ivo talks about.

Wait and see.

Media Extensions are Media Foundation components designed to extend the core Windows platform and enable Windows apps including Microsoft Edge to support an ever-increasing range of formats. Media Extensions, much like browser extensions, allow customers to extend their device beyond the core experience shipped as part of Windows 10. It also allows the developers of media technologies to update and enhance media components independently of the Windows 10 release schedule. This allows us to work with the community to deliver high quality, interoperable codecs to Edge customers quickly and reliably.
