  1. The Vulcan RT gives the wrong date in your apps list, so sorting by date won’t help you find it. It is also labeled “Vulcan Runtime Libraries”, which the article didn’t specify right off that Vulcan RT may be an abbreviation for, and would aid appearing in the searches for help. Everything labeled Vulcan by the Intel Corporation is a likely culprit related to this. One Vulcan app can be uninstalled normally, following these instructions, on Windows 10 (and other versions of Windows through the app settings menu) and doing that much will allow use of your browser without redirecting to the fake Microsoft malware alert page, so for that, the instructions are correct. However, when you try to uninstall the other app, the one labeled “Vulcan Runtime Libraries” following these instructions, it makes changes to your hard drive. If your settings are as default to warn before allowing an app to make changes to your hard drive, you will have the pop-up window warning, allowing you to cancel before you do any harm. If you don’t know what the normal procedure of uninstalling is, you may click to continue, allowing the app to make changes to your hard drive, accidentally giving the app access to your hard drive, (as I almost did, being a novice) and believing that would allow uninstalling.

  2. I think it is too good blog according to others. Because i have read multiple blogs, i was not satisfied. It is great.
