I went to download that and my antivirus popped up with a "Trojan.Dropper.Gen" warning.

Strange, downloaded fine here then scanned and came back clean.

I figured she already had that set, maybe not.

It may just be my antivirus.  It gets touchy.  I tried it a second time and same thing.  I really want to try it but that is "bugging" me.  LOL.  Maybe I can download it from CNet and see if that makes any difference.

I'm running it right now for grins, pretty sure no rootkit here.

I downloaded it from their "All Products" page and it went fine.  Now I'll run it.  I've never had a problem that I know of, but why not, right?

I vaguely recall her mentioning Windows Updates were downloading earlier today - but I've been unable to verify any of those IPv6 addresses so far...

Rootkit scan finished:  NO malware found!  No cleanup required.    That sounds good.
Window updates were done before I started this up again.   
 here's the latest GW.    The good news (I guess) is doesn't seem to be eating up the Tokens they added yesterday?
What are all these Hosts?    just curious
All the Wins updates worked ok except for 1 optional for Intel graphics something???

The hosts represent all of the servers (web sites) your applications are talking to - the cryptic numeric ones are those that Glasswire can't resolve to a "user friendly" name. FWIW, I do see at least one ad related site there - you may want to install and ad blocker to save even more data. Can't make a recommendation for Chrome however, i don't use it.

The Windows Updates were done today, right?  If so, they would be part of the Host Process.  That's probably what most of that is.   

You can change it from "All" to "Apps" (on the left), then click on Chrome to show what sites used the data.
