Problem with Outlook.com
I have a strange problem when using the Outlook mail app, both the on-line version and when using Outlook in the Mail app. I use Gmail as a client in the Mail app, when I receive mail that was originated by a Gmail user or sent to my Gmail address, I cannot reply to those emails or forward them if I use Outlook. I get an error msg and Outlook will not send them. I have to be on the alert to notice if the mail was sent to my Gmail address before I reply or forward. I've checked my settings for both Gmail and Outlook, but I cannot determine what would cause this problem. It started about three months ago after one of the updates to Windows 10. I'm using the latest version of Windows 10, S0h2. When using Outlook in the Office 365 app it seems to work fine. Does anyone have a solution for me? Thanks in advance.

Windows update cleanup not clearing
I installed the latest cumulative update for Windows 10 2004. When I go to storage to cleanup Windows update cleanup, it cleaned up but not completely. It didn't say 0 bytes like before. I think this is a bug in 2004. I created a test user account but issue didn't get resolved. Last time, I basically reinstall Windows. If I repair install Windows, my Windows update history might be empty. Any ideas? Here is the link to the feedback in the hub; https://aka.ms/AA9yi85. Please help me upvote it. I like more upvotes to get the engineers to take a look at it. I re-created my issue in the feedback.
Problem with Rewards program from MSN(edge) homepage.
I click on Rewards icon, it goes for a little bit and then JUMPS back to homepage. I am really disappointed with this because it has been going for some time now! But if I go to Bing search and type in Rewards it goes to login, I click on that and my account shows up. WTF!!!

Windows 10 dll hooking and other issues
So I believe that my home PC running Win10Pro 64 has been exploited using various advanced methods inc .dll hooking, user impersonation, SYSTEM account hijacking and lots more!! Also style sheets have been used to hide and mask certain menus, options, toolbars. In chrome, ms store, AV, and more. I have been trying to figure it all out for a few months now and have collected loads of data screenshots, desktop video recordings etc. I have rebuilt the PC and clean installed about 5 times and it always slowly comes back. Even with Bitdefender 2020 and malware-bytes and zone alarm free firewall. I also seem to be able to run Windows server commands from the cmdline, which as far as I know only apply to RDSH or Terminal servers. Has anyone got any insight, or seen anything on their Windows 10 that looks slightly different or out of place? Found any worrying log files or Folders in %temp% Also I seem to have a family icon next to my Device in my MS account?! I haven't setup family, and cant view anything in Windows 10 family options and on the website it says its not set up?
unwanted and unused apps
I have no desire to turn on my camera or microphone Sure, some friends love skype, games, etc. MY laptop &Internet are for personal research& occasional entertainment, writing articles and short stories. Other Windows apps are shared with a second user account Windows often refers to him as my "child" when I attempt to delete unwanted apps and suggest I give him spending money, referring to him as my "child" This silliness has taken place several times over. Attempts to point this out via feedback most times result in a line up of staff posting "Thank you" posters rather than a any sincere effort to correct an annoying problem. - Very insincere response...
