I have Win 7 on my desktop and Win 8 on my laptop. Both of these computers have SSHD for booting. Nothing specific for blocking.
Freddy's advice was very helpful. He didn't try to send me out to buy more software. You can have too much and too many virus etc software running on you computer. I was glad to know he favored malwarebytes because I have a license for that software. I am a happy customer.
