+1 Issue with Your Phone
How can I eliminate the above noted issue when using "Your Phone" on my windows 10 version 1909. I have asked for and received assistance, remotely, from two (2) Microsoft techs with no results. Am I the only one experiencing this issue? If so, how can I resolve it. My phone is a Note 8. My cotacts do not ontain the "+1" designation. It only appears on the PC, Acer 5, when I attempt to make a call. HELP!!!
Whenever I open the Microsoft Edge browser, which has the MSN homepage set - and before I've even clicked on anything else - a nasty trojan/virus (Perfstringbackup.tmp) installs, then my firewall is disabled, and then a fake Windows update downloads more malware onto my PC. How is this all possible?
How do I discover and remove malware when the OS can not?
If the operating system doesn't detect and remove the root kit how do I remove it from the system? Please post a walkthrough on how to detect and remove malware using command prompt or an external drive. Why does my administrator require "elevation" in command prompt? How do I patch a system after removing a root kit? I do not want to format my hard drive, how do I know my media tool isn't infected? How do I know someone isn't connected remotely to my windows or iOS?
How to speed up your computer?
It finally happened. My computer started loading sloooooooooowly, even settings was a problem to open. I tried disk cleanup as this article suggested: https://community.windows.com/en-us/stories/device-health . It worked. Previously though, I had to add RAM to my setup cause Forza Horizon 3 was stuttering.
Where can I learn more about the Event Log?
I have figured out the basics in Event Log, but I want to be good at it. Where can I find what the error codes mean? And, how to fix them? The link you always get to help you just take me too a search page. Most of the times I dont even know what to search for. This is probably a lot of information for your engineers, for me it just makes me feel like an idiot: Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.18999.1_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy SID (S-1-15-2-155514346-2573954481-755741238-1654018636-1233331829-3075935687-2861478708). This security permission can be changed with the Component Services administrative tool. Component service I get, but it doesn't help me very much when I don't have the slightest idea of what to change. It would be so much easier to provide relevant and good reports in Feedback Hub if I could find a way to learn more. Sincerely LokePus
What does this statement mean "Your virus and threat protection is managed by your organization." Who is "my" organization? This is a home computer and currently Domain, Private and Public firewalls are ON.
Can anybody help me it saying that my security is controlled by organization how do I change that
I want my computer safe
The safety of my c omputer is a very serious question
URGENT ALERT RE HACKERS, VIRUSES, AND DANGEROUS THREATs
Today I received an urgent, very loud, alert from what appeared to be Microsoft, telling me the computer was in serious danger from hackers trying to gain access to my personal information. I was instructed not to turn my computer off or leave the page and was afraid to exit. I was also instructed to call the phone number provided immediately. I was not aware of any MS security threat scams and was quite worried. The technician I spoke to on the phone assured me he was a licensed MS technician and that since my computer had already been hacked, all my personal information was in jeopardy. This was a first for me and decided it would be best to trust his judgment. He accessed my computer and seemed to think 17 hackers were attempting to take over my computer and said my entire security system was locked, so I would not be able to proceed without removal of the threat and the addition of a network firewall and an IP protection. He took me to a web page for RIGHTPCEXPERTS.COM in Tampa, and gave the impression they are affiliated with Microsoft. Because I am age 69 he offered me a "discounted price" of 299.00 and I was left to believe it was imperative, as all my devices were in danger. I was then referred to a second agent who said he would be able to remedy the problems with my PC. HE REMOVED MY SYSTEM MECHANIC AND THEN installed an AD BLOCKER, CC CLEANER, ANTI-VIRUS HACKING. HE SEEMINGLY CLEANED MY COMPUTER AND THEN INSTALLED A NETWORK FIREWALL, AN IP NETWORK ACCESS PROTECTOR. After I PROVIDED my credit card number for the charge of 299.00 I was told there was an additional fee technical fee of $120, that would be paid in 12 installments of 9.99, for a total of 420.00. I was so reluctant but thought I had no other choice but to proceed. Like another gentleman who was concerned about the legitimacy of this company, I am left wondering if they are a scam. MY INVOICE READ AM PC SECURITY, NOT RIGHTPCEXPERTS OUT OF TAMPA AND NEXWAY HANDLED THE TRANSACTION.
