Sounds like a scam, what you have to do is look at the underlying URL of the link you are asked to click on, but generally speaking unless you requested a password reset and expect an email with a link to follow never click on any links in emails like that. If you have already done so and changed yourpassword I would immediately log into Facebook and change your password again there and of course youwould have to do the same for any other websites where you used that password. There is a reason why it is strongly recommended that you use different passwords for different websites and nowadays really the only option in my opinion is to use a password manager because if you really are using good password security meaning difficult and for the most part random passwords there is no way anybody can remember all the passwords one needs.

I am running Windows Defender and I keep getting messages from FaceBook to change my password. It has happened 3 times in the last month. I know this is not a JAWS question but does anyone have any suggestions about why this is happening? I have a Windows 10 computer and all Windows updates are current.

That is a good point, are you sure they are really from Facebook? How do you get these messages? Are they emails, notifications or text messages? If you do change it I would certainly not follow the link in any of these requests if there is a link but log into Facebook and then select the option to change password from your account settings area.

If the messages come from Facebook I don't see what it has to do with Windows Defender. You might simply want to go ahead and change it and it will probably fix the issue. I have actually seen notifications in the iOS keychain app where for some less important logins where I have a comparatively simple password it says that this password has been identified to be part of some password leak and I should change it. Maybe the messages from Facebook are for a similar reason.

Albert, if it is any consolation, I asked the MS help desk to run a diagnostic on a computer that my sister bought from Amazon a few months ago and has set to set it up.  Finally I just asked her if you are not going to set it up, just give it to me.  Well, along with other things that needed tweaking including putting on the latest version of JAWS, I thought as long as the tech is peeking in my computer, she might as well look to see if it can run windows 11.  Apparently, the processor from what I could determine from her thick accent, is not fast enough.  She re-assured me that 10 would be operational till 025.  Also she suggested I contact HP to see if there is anything they can do to fix the problem.  Call me naive, but, I’d think computers would not be sold if the processor will be shortly to slow.  Mind you, I’m buying a laptop from Amazon with just DDR 3 RAM, which I was told is pretty much obsolete now.

On most machines, media keys have absolutely nothing to do with Windows, and everything to do with UEFI/BIOS version.

Has your machine recently undergone a BIOS update?  Is your current BIOS version way out of date?  That's what I'd be checking first.

Hi,

Ah, Trusted Platform Module (TPM)? Yes, you will need a TPM 2.0 chip, either physical, platform-based , or virtual. We also need the exact model of this computer so we can figure out if the computer is truly ready for Windows 11.
