plodr ... confirmation for you

The last time I had an issue with it was when NoScript wasn't seeing the domain. Once that domain was allowed, it worked.

The sky is crying, goodbye my dear friend.

You took a chance on me, I hope you never regretted that.  For you, I changed my username from winchester73thegunthatwonthewest ...  ;)

I still remember that fateful day, on the phone with you, logged into the renegade chat room, trying to communicate plans and sort things out with everyone, saying some ugly but necessary things (still feel badly about what I said to normmork), then turning off the lights and bringing out the flag. We all landed on our feet at LzD, hope we made you proud during your dark days.  You had made your peace with your health the last time we spoke.

I’ve thought often of the father/daughter piece you wrote for Megan at voiceofthepublic ... it’s timely now that my own daughter is about the get married.

One last time ... "What are you arguing with me for, I ain't got a lick of sense."

See you on the other side Jerry.

Going a bit off topic but Microsoft Security Essentials is available for Windows 7 users and I wonder what will happen when Windows 7 reaches EoL

If memory serves, Windows Defender on Windows 7 is an antimalware product only.

Until such time as Bret updates WinPatrol, or provides support, update notices will no longer be supplied.

It appears CryptoPrevent is now only available as a paid/subscription program.  As such, update notices will no longer be posted.

I'm of two minds here.

It's highly unlikely that the OP has been involved in illegal torrent downloads (given her level of computer expertise and her statement that the movie in question wasn't something she'd want to watch).  If memory serves, ISPs send an email with the DCMA takedown notice, they don't "call" the individual.

I'd like to know more about the ISP telephone contact and the details of the discussion before assuming that it is legitimate.  The whole thing might be a scam or it might be legitimate.  If the former, I wouldn't be comfortable just changing security settings, I'd want to follow up on potential malfeasance, etc.  If the latter, doing the suggestions about locking down the router might be sufficient.
