Staying safe from email & chat scams
Windows Defender engineer Erik Wahlstrom explains email and web chat scams - how to spot them, what to do if you see one, and how to protect your online safety.
I'm just sharing my experience. Hoping your suggestion to correct or improve the steps based on your experience, so I can learn much from this community for the step / tips/ trick that I don't know. Usually this happened on built-in camera. I will take the following steps and stop the next steps if problem has solved: 1) Sign out from current account -> restart -> sign in with administrator account. 2) Update BIOS, then camera driver, then camera firmware if suggested and/or available from laptop manufacturer. 3) Update Win 10 to the latest version including all pending updates -> restart computer. 4) Troubleshoot Windows Store Apps. Find it by typing "troubleshoot" in windows search. 5) Check the camera privacy setting, whether it's blocked. Find it by typing "privacy settings" in search. 6) Reset Camera app. Find it by typing "apps & features" in search -> Advanced options -> Reset. 7) Check camera device compatibility in Device Manager -> right-click camera device -> Property -> Driver -> click Driver Details. If there is stream.sys in the list, then I will suggest my client to replace the camera device with a new one or use external camera. If not, it might be compatible with win 10. 8) Edit windows registry. Sometime can fix the problem. WARNING : please readers DO NOT do this if not familiar. Do it with your own risk. 8.a. Backup and save current registry setting. 8.b. Edit registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> WOW6432Node -> Microsoft -> Windows Media Foundation. On the right pane of the Registry Editor of Windows Media Foundation, create the new DWORD (32-bit) Value -> enter EnableFrameServerMode (without space) as the title for the new DWORD -> double-click EnableFrameServerMode -> Input 0 (zero) for Value data -> OK -> Restart. If any things is missing or there is any other tips that I don't know, please let me know.

Too many emails?
10-30-2020 Hello folks, During the last two or three months, MS/Windows has been sending warnings about a high percentage of emails in my box, with a veiled, or maybe very obvious, warning of dire consequences: $$$ When I opened the area/tab where it warned of a high percentage of mail, it "offered the opportunity" to purchase 365, which I definitely do not want to do. I purchased office at a set price, with the understanding that there would be no additional charges. But, in view of the threat of cancelling/negating my use of the Internet, I decided to erase as many emails as time would allow me. A few weeks ago, I erased more than 2,700 emails; two days later, the warning that I had used 96% +++ of my allotment, surfaced again. Two or three days ago, I erased over 700 emails. Once again, now it shows 94%. I think the MS/Windows agenda is very clear: to trick me into signing up for something I do not need nor want. After erasing +/- 3,400 emails, the score has only gone from 96% to 94%. I find Apple's approach to extra storage for $.99 monthly simply honest. I have subscribed to Hotmail/etc. for many years, peacefully, but now this seems like a new trick to syphon money. Since I have spent soooo much time erasing emails with such a small results, I am simply at a loss as to what to do. Suggestions, please, Juan José Rodríguez S.
