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.

Windows 10 100% Disk Usage
Hi Everyone, I have been having recent problems with many computers that are running 100% disk usage. My computer is not running this, but my brother's computer (lenovo thinkpad X131e) is running 100% all the time. I fully cleaned the drive, and disabled Windows Search and SySmain (aka Superfetch), and alot of other things. It seems to work now, but still is not like a new computer. I jumps to 100% when opening a basic app like Microsoft Edge. The only time when it is low is when idiling with no programs open. (still at 10 - 20%). I also have another computer that is running the same thing (Lenovo iDeapad 310). Does anyone know why this happens? My dad has a Lenovo P910 that is 5 years old, and runnig windows 10 Pro. This does not have the 100% disk usage though. Is it different versions of windows?? The thinkpad and ideapad are both windows 10 home. THank you for your time! Joseph

why does Hotmail allow so much spam emails?
I get so many spam emails from HOtmail, that I deleted that account from my IPad as it just floods me with spam emails. Why doesn't Microsoft do more with stopping spam when we report it?
"The device is currently in use"
I try to safely eject my USB device and get the message "The device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I get this message 99% of the time - even when no applications or windows are open. Why is this happening? Is there a way to get around this? I never get this message at work or school, unless the USB device is actually in use. I do log in as a standard, non-administrator user. I only elevate to administrator privileges when necessary like installing applications (I also only temporarily elevate privileges; I never log on as an administrator). So when I get the "The device is currently is use." message, I right-click on start button and click Disk Management. I know that I can safely remove the device by going into Disk Management and taking the device offline. However, I cannot elevate to administrator privileges to get into Disk Management. I get the following message: "You are logged on as a standard user. You can view device settings in Device Manager, but you must be logged on as an administrator to make changes." I don't want to log on as an administrator, but I do want to temporarily elevate to administrator privileges to take the device offline. Is there a way to do this? When I'm logged on as standard user and want to install an application, I get prompted for an administrator password. I want the same thing to happen when I go to Device Manager and other areas that require administrator rights.
