    I keep the Windows around to play some old Windows games in. No A/V software as the system never connects to the Internet from Windows. Works perfectly well, no problems at all.
    Here's one that I know you will love to play. (And so would I)

    Home - Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Not sure that my current iMac can handle it though.

    With CleanMyMac X you have to learn which tests to run, and which to keep away from. Bit like TechToolPro 12 which Apple used to include with AppleCare as TechTool De luxe.
    I would happy to list which tests are safe to use in CMM and which to leave alone. In pre Mac OS X days there was an application called 'Conflict Catcher' which helped to locate 'conflicts'but each part of the OS had to be isolated and run to see if it fixed the conflict. It was if I remember right it took 4-5 hours to discover which part of the OS was causing the problem and remove it. Things have changed for the worse IMO. I no sooner became familiar with Mojave when Catalina came along. Had to download it three times before I could get the full download.

    I've learned what tests to run in CMM. None.

    I’ve found out maOS is very good at taking care of itself, as long as I remain mindful of what I am doing with it.

    Thanks in advance.
    I'm very happy with WIN10 and El Capitan and Boot Camp on my IMAC. Things got a bit shaky at one point but I fixed it with How to Reset PRAM on a Mac and YouTube
    I'm sure Boot Camp and WIN10 can be deleted but honestly, I hope it never comes to that.

    You can remove the BootCamp partition rather easily. It's important to do two things:
    1, Back up your macOS partition before deleting the Bootcamp partition (just in case something goes wrong).
    2. Use the BootCamp utility to delete the Windows partition and follow the on screen dissections. I think they vary slightly depending upon which macOS version you're using.

    I must be a glutton for punishment. Until quite recently I had (deep breath) Windows XP, 7 & 10 all running via Parallels together with a bistro of Linux. I have since "rationalised" by deleting "XP". I had no crossover between systems other than one downloaded MSExcel template which was infected, but my AV software found and deleted it with no lasting effects

    I started using this software when I attended an Apple Expo in Earls Court London many years ago. It was one of their Senior Technician who told me about it, but that was in the good old days when the system could be "blessed" which ensured it booted.
