Computer Support Forum no longer accepting emails (since June 2017)

Question: no longer accepting emails (since June 2017)

I am using my hotmail account for several years to allow a home automation software to send alerts.

I have configured outbound emails for on port 587. This has been working great for years.

It has stopped working since June. Nothing else has changed. I double checked password/settings...

The home automation client (software did not change) runs on Windows Server 2012.

I can login to my homtail account through a web client and send emails from there.

Preferred Solution: no longer accepting emails (since June 2017)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I made the switch to wlm (2011) from outlook express everything was working fine for a couple of months. About five days ago, it seemed that I was getting very few emails, so I checked my OE account on another computer and realized that numerous emails had not made it onto wlm. I did the repair and then downloaded the 2012 version, but none of these things have fixed the problem. Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance!

Answer:windows live mail is no longer receiving emails. what to do?

Hi Jeannette, welcome to Seven Forums.
Are your account settings in WLM correct, and do you use a Microsoft Account to Sign-in?

Please help me with this issue.1) reading this post, does this mean that Win7 will stop working on a new Skylake chip?  (A "Hi! Upgrade me!  Until you do you can't log in! Hahaha!"  or similar?)2) So if I spend $3000 to buy a top-of-the-line machine--with Win7 because I hate Win10, will it stop working or be forcibly upgraded in 11 months? 3) Will I have to buy last year's model to keep Win 7 into the 2020s (updated or not) the way we still have a PC running Win95 that still works?  For that matter, I have an XP that is still going strong, just not connected to the net.  The prospect of this is kinda very scary.Because if this is the case, I'm not going to buy a new Lenovo.  I might buy a previous gen Broadwell (if I can find one running Win7 Pro and Mil-Spec)--unless I switch to Linux or Mac *shudders*. Would RAM be affected?  Or would I have to upgrade before 2017? Thanks.~Microfishd1

In the June release of the Microsoft Software Removal Tool (MSRT), we?re adding Xiazai, a widespread family of browser modifiers that we have blocked and removed from millions of computers since 2015.

Xiazai is a software bundler that can sneak in additional changes. Xiazai does not install itself or make autostart registry entries, but the impact of its changes can persist long after Xiazai itself is gone. MSRT will remove Xiazai but it will also restore system settings.

Xiazai?s extra changes affect browsing experience. On top of offering bundled applications during installation, as software bundlers would do, it can modify browsers? home page so that the browser always opens to a specific website. It can also change browser shortcuts on the desktop and taskbar so that when the browser is launched using these modified shortcuts, it opens the said website.

This behavior is classified unwanted based on our evaluation criteria. At Microsoft, we work to protect customers? choice and control of their devices, computing, and browsing experiences. Xiazai violates this by setting the browser to always open a specific website when launched. Even if the user reverts the home page, the browser will continue to open the said website when launched from the taskbar or desktop. This system change takes away control from the user.

Xiazai is a very prolific threat. We have observed it on more than two million machines since October 2015. It?s also still very active. This year,... Read more

I have a Dell XPS 15 9550 and all of a sudden I have been getting a BSOD constantly. It can be when I'm using Excel, Web Browsing, or even when I have the computer sitting on my desk doing nothing.
I turned off the feature to do an auto restart after it never created a record or log of the issue.
This computer came with Windows 10 installed by Dell so this isn't in relation to an upgrade from 8 to 10.
The Event Viewer only lists "Event ID 41 Kernel-Power Task Category 63"
I'm at a loss as to what is going on and having this laptop being barely over a year old it's nuts to have a 1600+ paperweight.
Hopefully someone has some thought or etc for me.

Answer:Constant BSOD since June 3rd, 2017 (No program or particular act triggers it)

On June 3rd or just prior to that date, did you get any type of updates or install any new apps?
Have you checked you drivers to make sure they are up to date?
Although the utility to check dump files doesn't work correctly right now, if you could place one or more of your dump files on OneDrive and give us a link, we could try to check it.  You may have a Memory.dmp file if you have not adjusted your system for smaller versions or a mini-dump folder which will contain the smaller versions.
There is a small possibility a new Windows update will be available today which may help.

Two days ago I noticed my x120e battery icon no longer reflected the plugged-in status when I connected the AC adapter. Now my battery is drained and even if I remove the battery and only use the AC adapter, I cannot power the laptop. Wow, thanks a lot, Lenovo. I have owned this laptop for only a few months, purchased brand new from your website, and now it is dead. What a POS. Your brand was supposed to be associated with high-quality PCs and so I decided to give you a try. Never again and I will be sure to dis your poor quality products to anyone I can. Not to mention I had to wait on hold for 30 minutes to get in touch with your service department who told me they would send me a replacement AC adapter but then didn't and I had to call back to get another one sent. Your technical support people are as incompetent as your engineers. I treat all my electronics well, so don't try to pin the blame on me, either. I have used the laptop very lightly and now it's dead.

Answer:x120e No Longer Accepting Power

For some reason that sounds more like the DC jack itself has gone bad.  Mine has had that happen for short periods of time, with me doing a little wiggling of the DC cord to maybe align things better (and I'm using two different adaptors too!). Now, obviously the support could be much better, but things do break down at random points in time, and predicting that is always a gamble.  If the new adaptor itself doesn't work, then you'll probably have to send your laptop in itself (process of elimination) for them to see about replacing the motherboard (I think the DC jack is soldered to the motherboard). Either way, best of luck!

Hey everyone, Over the last month or two I've been having trouble getting my Z360 to accept a charge.  Unless the AC input was wiggled at a certain angle or had pressure applied to it, the laptop wouldn't accept a charge at all.  This has led to some pretty irritating battery outages, but otherwise the laptop (and the AC adapter itself) work just fine. It appears that now the laptop simply won't take a charge at all, so I can't even boot it up anymore.  This pretty obviously a physical hardware issue, so I'm really hoping I can replace the connector. Assuming I'm correct (if anyone has any other ideas, please let me know!), does anyone know where I might be able to get a new AC input connector?  Are they difficult to replace?  My warranty with Lenovo ran out in November, is there still any way I'd be able to get support them on this? Thanks for your help!


Go to Solution.

Answer:Z360 no longer accepting charge

Hi Hiss, your Z360 has no AC input connector, I guess you are talking about the DC Jack,most probably you need to repair or exchange the Power Board,please see Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 Hardware Maintenance Manual, page 53-54... IdeaPad Z360 DC Jack only... please read... good Luck... Zehn

Hello, I purchased a factory reconditioned Chromebook 14 a few months ago (3/24/2016).  Today, I plugged the chromebook in for a little extra power (battery at 64% at the time). I noticed that the charging indicator on the battery icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen didn't turn on.  I then unplugged the power cable and plugged it back in. The indicator light on the side of the chromebook (next to the power barrel) didn't turn on.  After moving the charging cable to 3 different outlets in the house (all of which were confirmed working by other power-using devices), I have determined that the problem is indeed with the Chromebook (or the power cable).  At this point, the battery is still around 60% and I have the chromebook powered off in case any diagnostic data is required. Other forums I've looked through so far have asked for output from crosh on a battery test, which I have run.

I bought an ACER E5-571-5428 some time ago and spent such a long time trying to get emails on it without success that, eventually, I gave it up in disgust. It has Windows 8.1 (I think, although it might be just Windows 8). The laptop I'm using here is ACER ASPIRE 5741 which has Windows 7.
The problem that I couldn't cope with is that I have one email address which uses POP and, for some reason, Windows 8.1 does not accept POP emails. I should be grateful if you could explain what I have to do to make my POP email address acceptable. Perhaps I should wait until Windows 10 comes out, which, hopefully, will accept POP emails.
Your pleasant birthday wishes email reminded me that I was a member of Tech Support. I only wish I had remembered when I was fiddling about with the 8.1.
Kind regards,

My audio jack has suddenly and inexplicably failed. Before this point, whenever I plugged in my headphones, they would be detected immediately and the computer would switch to that output. Now, when I plug them in, not only do they not produce sound, they are not recognized by the computer. No message telling me I've plugged in a device. Nothing in the sound section of the control column telling me I've got something in the jack. Nothing. This is exceptionally problematic.

I just changed my password for Hotmail, but now the new one is not being accepted by the Windows Live Mail where I usually access it.

The whole thing started last night when I couldn't get on with Windows Live mail, even with the old password, which was saved on it. I resorted to using the web access, and had to change the password because I had forgotten exactly what it was. Having changed it at that time, I later tried to use Windows Live Mail again, and it will not accept the new password as genuine, no matter how many times I put it in. I tried going to accounts to change it there, to no avail.

I keep getting:

Unable to send or receive messages for the Hotmail (*it puts my username here*) account. The sign-in name you entered doesn't exist, or your password is incorrect.

Server Error: 0x80048821
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80048821

The new password works fine when accessing my hotmail account from the web. It just will not do it on Windows Live mail. Before yesterday I had no problems with it.

i found this online. it may be able to help you. im by no means familiar with the MSN program or using Remote Assistance, but i figured any response is better help than none
Open System by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
Click Remote settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Select the Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer check box.
Click Advanced, and then, under Invitations, select the time from the two lists.

maybe this will at least give u enough time to complete the steps you were having time crunch issues with.

Ok here's the problem...

I built a new pc (out of older parts), which is running Windows XP. I loaded it with all the goodies like anti virus software, defrag programs, registry cleaners, etc. I than install Windows Live Messenger... Alright no problem. Than I get the usual file sent by a friend be it mp3, video file, picture, etc. & than bam the computer restarts as soon as I accept the file. Shortly there after the computer has a mind of it's own and starts to reboot whenever it feels like doing so. Be it during an hour of web surfing, three hours of idling doing absolutely nothing, or once again the second I accept a file from anyone through Windows Live Messenger.

I don't understand this issue and scratch my head... So I reinstall Windows XP (mind you Service Pack 3), and use the computer with Windows Live Messenger installed without receiving any type of file for over twenty days without a single problem. Heck, even changing my Messenger screen name to ''Don't send me files''. But than ok I get curious after twenty days of no reboots and decide to accept a file from someone just for the sake of seeing if the issue still lingers. & voila what do you know? Boom the computer restarts as soon as I accept the file. & also begins to get a mind of it's own there after, even while I'm not on Windows Live Messenger. Just randomly rebooting itself whenever it feels the need to do so.

Answer:Computer Restarts After Accepting Files On Windows Live Messenger

The only thing I've noticed with WLM is that it insists on running a virus scan on any incoming file, maybe it's not happy starting your choice of A/V? Check your File Transfer options, there may be some anomaly there.

Try installing Windows Messenger 5.1 alongside it and accepting a download with that, it may allow you to narrow down the problem.

I must say this is the most baffling problem I have ever encountered in any machine I have used. I have just bought an ASUS Interl i5 with 8 megs and installed a NVIdea card. I intentionally put windows 8 on the machine as I am a web site developer and need to keep all new technology to stay up to date.

On a personal note I hate Windows 8!

I also installed the newest office and outlook which again has not impressed me.

So here is the problem:

I have many email accounts for my clients hosted on Godaddy Virtual dedicated servers using a plesk interface.

I have at least 7 devices that all use many of the emails for support of my clients. I also have personal email addresses E.G. Gmail, me and yahoo accounts. All are set up to IMAP into individual devices including Apple desktop and Iphone.

The Asus desktop running windows 8 64 bit and outlook which is on the same wifi network as every other device will not connect to any of my GoDaddy web accounts. [email protected] [email protected] etc. But will connect to every one of my other accounts.

Now remember all of these accounts work on every other machine in my office which are all on the same network.

I have talked to Microsoft tech support for 4 hours who took control of the machine and got nowhere. It was escalated and we did another 3 hours still no cure. GoDaddy states no errors on their end and I believe them as it is localized to one computer.

I can not set up any accounts either pop or IMAP on... Read more

Answer:Upgraded to W10 and Outlook SMTP emails failing to send. How can I fix it?

We have the exact same problem using Outlook (you would think Microsoft would have got this working on their own software before release!)
Seems some emails will send, such as test emails and some replies to ebay. New emails and random replies to other people won't send, just sit in the outbox and give error messages such as :
- Sending' reported error (0x800CCC13) : 'Cannot connect to the network. Verify your network connection or modem.'
This is not a network issue, that is working fine, we are receiving emails at the same time as the attempted send. It's not a server issue, spent 3 hours in web chat with my server host, everything checked out.
We can still use the same web address and server on my tablet which is still on windows 8, it works fine there.
This is definitely a windows 10 issue. Sorry I can't help but the more people reporting this the better.

Hi Everyone,

I have just successfully configured IIS to run a local SMTP Relay for the purpose of forwarding emails from MFP devices that do not support the TLS protocol (which is required by Exchange Online). I did this by following the instructions here:

I have tested the SMTP server by following the instructions here:

Windows XP did all I ever needed. Heck! Windows 2000 did all I ever needed. I use the phone only as a phone. But I do need email.

Got a Nokia Lumia 520 last month. Set up an email account [email protected]

Thrashing around with Windows 8.1, now that XP has gone off support. Set up a Windows account [email protected]

Still not understanding the difference between '' and '', but I am able to access email on both these accounts by login with a browser.

But I do not work my email through a browser. I use Thunderbird, and preview with MailWasher Pro to purge any junk from the server.

After over an hour thumping around, have not been able to get Thunderbird or MailWasher to work either the 'live' or 'outlook' account. Maybe problem with pop and smtp addresses. Beginning to think Microsoft allows only working the mail through a browser.

The email account which I actually use, and depend heavily upon, is tied to my ISP. Am considering change of ISP, and therefore a change to a non-isp linked email - like gmail or outlook. BUT... if I can't get Windows emails working except through the browser or phone, Windows email is of no practical use to me.

Any guidance appreciated. (For extra credit, give a link to something that explains the difference between Windows 'live' and 'outlook'.)

thanks - shu

Answer:pop and smtp settings for 'outlook' and 'live'?

Got it working as well as it's gonna be. Both and use as imap server.

I checked the other threads and didn't find one that addressed this problem.

I bought a laptop with windows Vista on it last August and shortly there after I installed SP1. After a few bumps and bruises I got it working adequately. I used the Windows Live email client as my pop3 server and it has worked fine until... 2 nights ago I installed SP2 RC (release candidate) and now my pop3 accounts though they can still receive cannot be sent from. However my (not POP3) account can still both send and receive. I have since uninstalled SP2 and reinstalled windows live mail client, but the problem remains.
I left some pop3 accounts on another client (Mozilla's Thunderbird) and they exhibit the same problem.
Also the first time I start windows live after a reboot, if I've an outstanding mail to be sent in the outbox, I get a message from Shield Deluxe (anti-virus software) saying that a connection can not be made to and telling me to make sure my fire wall allows avp.exe. I searched for avp.exe on my C: drive, but it wasn't found. I also shut off the firewall and Shield Deluxe entirely and it didn't help. I have no idea why there is a reference to a Kaspersky exe, I'm just using the Vista fire wall.
I've attached screen shots of the messages form each of those programs.
Anybody have any ideas on this?

Windows live mail 2012 will no longer synchronize e-mails effective the end of June. From what I understand it will not affect Outlook, 2010, 2013 or 2016. Does anyone know whether it will affect version 2009. If it does I will have to connect using a web browser or buy a subscription to Office 365 which I do not want to do.

I have experimented using a web browser, but have not had any luck being able to connect. I can still click on the envelope icon for Windows, but after the end of June it will not work unless 2009 is exempt.

Using Mercury email server; I am trying to send emails other than [email protected] Currently admin works great, but when I try to send [email protected] I will get this message:

The attached message has failed delivery and has been referred
to you as postmaster. The following error report or reports
were given to explain the problem:

*** [email protected]
550-Verification failed for <[email protected]>

I am sending through my ISP's authenticated SMTP server that does not require login (authenticates by IP address.)

I can receive mail fine at both [email protected] and [email protected], just sending will not allow.

Thanks, Trif.

Answer:SMTP mail problem. [email protected] emails OK, rest error 550!

If you are sending thru you ISP why are you trying to use a seperate domain? Most ISP have their own email domain and SMTP info. Using a seperate domain means you have to setup that domain's smtp.

What i mean is this. I have my email thru my ISP. [email protected] at the same time i have my domains email. [email protected] . While both are used for email i can not use the SMTP setting of my adelphia email to send mail thru my techmodo account. I had to setup my techmodo smtp in order to send mail that way.

The only way this would work is if you have a email server which uses your ISP's exact same SMTP info. Such as or for GMail accounts. Other than that i dont see how it would work. Plus you also have to make sure that your Domain is setup thru your CPanel to send and recieve this way.

Unless i dont get it at all what you are trying to do and i am off in left field here.

I had no awareness as of this Change to the Outlook email service that I would lose my sent saved emails. Is there a way to retrieve them?
I read something during the stir of my finding out about this, that the newly improved Outlook could not support and carry over emails from the Hotmail. Give me a Break! If that's the newly and upcoming features that are that weak, I won't even use Outlook!

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

August 2017. I have a client using Live Mail under Win7. She sends her store newsletter to 850 opt-in customers. In the past months, there have been many complaints about coupons and news not received. Resends are only partially successful. Our ISP said "no more than 50 recipients" - so the list is now split into 18 groups of 49 max. The problem has gotten worse.

Today, I figured this out:

Windows Live Mail still has a bug in the group facility. (There have been some posts about this, including )
- The "category" (group) list name will have the correct number of members next to it, and all the members will show in the displayed list. However, it sometimes happens that not all the members will receive an email. If you click the "+" plus sign next to the group name in the To, CC, or BCC of a message, it will show the actual list it is planning to send to. If that's undersized, check the group by this method:
- In Contacts, left click on the group you want to check so that the list of group members is displayed. Then right click on it and choose Edit. If names are missing from the box at the bottom, it needs repair. Adding the names and clicking Save won't actually save. Here's how to really repair the list:

When downloading what were supposed to be photos, I ended up downloading a bunch of software I didn't want several days ago, and there weren't any photos. I then had to go and uninstall all that garbage. Then I scanned with Malwarebytes and removed 19 threats. Now when I click on a link in an email to go to the web, I get an annoying sound and a message saying, "This file doesn't have a program associated with it for performing this action," so I must have removed something that I shouldn't have. What software do I need to install make my email links work again? A friend suggested I do a System Restore, and I did that, but the problem was that it only gave me the options to restore for three different times on October 2, but I need to go back to about Sept. 27. There was a box I checked  to get more restore points, but no other ones appeared, and I didn't see any way to set a restore point for an earlier date. So I either need to learn how to set a restore point for an earlier date than the system allowed, or install software that will allow me to click on email links and have them work again.

Recently Juno, my dialup ISP, was out of order. I thought my computer was malfunctioning, so I took it to a repair person who informed me I had a "very sick" computer. After several days Juno left an automated voice message saying their system was temporarily out of order. The repairman reassessed his original evaluation and said the machine was okay after all.
I've been using Outlook with Windows XP; but since the "repairs," the send feature no longer works. The repairman doesn't know anything (his own admission) about Outlook. Can someone walk me through all the connections? It's always worked in the past. When I first brought the computer home, I sent an email to several lists with one large attachment. All the emails jammed my outbox. After powering down and rebooting I was able to delete the emails. Since, however, I am unable to send anything. They just pile up in the outbox. I can delete them after repeating the procedure described above.

I have really messed up this time. I use Win 2000 with OE6 & NAV. I was trying to see why my Windows Explorer said I had 56 MB of stuff in my Deleted emails folder although it showed no messages when I viewed the folder. I used Notepad to open the Deleted.dbx file & there was indeed a large amount of data there. I tried deleting the data but & ultimately ended up erasing the data and re-saving the file. It didn't seem to do anything to the size of the file.

The problem is that now when I look at my Inbox (which I didn't intentionally touch) I only see emails that have come in since I messed with that Deleted folder. All of my older emails are missing. The good news is that the Inbox.dbx still shows a large amount of data so I hope they can be recovered. My best guess is that I have changed the encoding into something that OE can't read. The readable OE folders show ISO encoding; when I re-saved the Deleted folder it didn't offer ISO so I tried ANSI. I have already tried resaving some test files in the other options offered under Notepad but no luck

Please, please tell me how can I recover my older Inbox items & get back to where I was this morning.

Time Warner just installed a new cable modem and now Outlook Express can't receive from ANY pop account.

For years I have had OE check about 18 email accounts every 10 minutes. Most are at roadrunner (Time Warner) but about half are at gmail or yahoo or others. That was working fine until today when the swapped my modem for one that supports telephones.

Now every one of the accounts gets the same error when receiving. Sending works fine. Here is the error:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 465, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

The error is identical except for the Server: 'xxxx' which changes for each account.

Now get this. For Time Warner email accounts they say to use the pop server:

That always fails to receive BUT:

will work.

The account was working to receive an email at 10:08 AM. The T-W tech arrived just before 10:00 AM.

Answer:Outlook Express No Longer Receives Emails

Here is an update. T-W fixed their system.

At least three of the four techs said, at one point or another that it was a Microsoft problem and I had to contact Microsoft. Yeah, right, Bill Gates is just waiting for my call.

So I took matters into my own hands. Last night I fired up an old Netbook and set up Outlook Express with all 18 accounts. In my kitchen, all got the same error as the computer I had been using.

This morning I took the netbook to a coffee shop (Yah! Tim Horton's). OE worked fine and I got all my emails.

I went home and tried again with the netbook, no joy. I called T-W and after about 20 minutes of the tech having me do yesterday's stuff over again, she said I had to call Microsoft.

I said, "That's not going to happen. I have talked to Verizon FIOS and I know when they can switch me over and how much it will cost me". I then reiterated the netbook saga and how it fails only when going through the T-W cable modem. She put me on hold and after some time the connection was dropped.

Some time within the next hour I tried OE and it worked flawlessly.:-D
It is still working 5 hours later.

It doesn't fix the problem as it promised it would. It is also using up valuable satellite usage quota trying repeatedly to send emails and then giving an error message when it fails.
I'd like to be able to fix this asap. Some advice please - better than the sfc / scannow thing.

as of today anything in my inbox or sent folders of outlook express will not delete. the red delete cross is still clickable, and the delete option in the right click menu still work, but the actual email will not delete itself. it stays where it is. i have done nothing to my system, not downloaded anything that could have brought a virus in; so i just wondered if anyone had any ideas? if i have to uninstall outlook express and reinstall it, where do i get it from? its always come already on when i got the pc. is it downloadable from somewhere?

Answer:can no longer delete emails in outlook express

Hi Cessna. It could be that your Deleted Items file is corrupted. Find deleted items.dbx with Windows Explorer and delete it. Outlook Express should then rebuild it and hopefully your problems will be over.

In recent days Thunderbird email links are no longer opening in Firefox which is the default browser.
Has worked without problem for years.
Not working in safe mode either.
Tried making another browser the default but that still didn't work.
It is still possible to send links from Firefox to Thunderbird.
Deleted a number of batch mails last week and problem is only happening since then, but I can't see how that would cause problems.

Answer:Links In Thunderbird EMails Are No Longer Opening In Firefox.

Try Seamonkey, portable. It includes T-bird. Since it is portable, it shouldn't impact your installed version of T-bird.

If it doesn't work, simply delete/erase the Seamonkey folder.

If it does work, you might want to consider installing Seamonkey to replace FF and T-bird which are currently installed.

I am using MS Office Outlook 2007 on Windows 7 (64). I have a folder used to hold emails from a user user group that I have been subscribed to for several years. Until recently, email coming into this folder appeared in bold (as did the folder) denoting that it contained unread email. This is no longer happening despite nothing have been changed. I set a rule redirecting those emails to the specified folder. This works perfectly for my Facebook emails and that folder appears bold when new emails arrive. I've had no luck fixing this and I am hoping someone can help me with this?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

I have an old 1997 Thinkpad 560 that I take with me on business trips. It has 98, I think the hard drive is under 2 gigs, the RAM is maxed out at 72 megs. I bought it used, so God knows what was ON it. I've had it for 3 years and it's been bulletproof for the most part. Last fall I had the OS reinstalled by a local tech, I don't have an external CD drive and he had to install using floppies. I didn't install Word, etc. I don't have any "extras" on it that I know of, I've tried to keep it down to a bare minimum. I use Juno for an ISP when travelling, but I also have it set up for 2 other ISPs, depending on where I am.

It is old and VERY slow. I've blamed it on Juno's browser for some time, but today I used a "regular" ISP and it wasn't a lot faster. Three or four times during the 1/2 hour net browsing, it froze completely, wouldn't respond to anything. Once it sat for a few minutes, one of the little green lights started flashing madly and it came back to life. On my last trip, last week, I walked away from it for a half hour or so, and the screen was black with just the flashing cursor, which didn't respond, I had to shut it off, then it was okay.

If something major is going bad, then fine, I've gotten my $150 worth. I'll walk away and buy another laptop, one that's a couple years old to keep the cost down a little.

Now my question(s) are: Putting aside any jokes about it's... Read more

Answer:Help my antique Thinkpad live a little longer

List everything that is in the MSConfig under the startup list and someone can tell you what you don't need!! Atleast this will free up some memory, and it might run a LITTLE faster which could also POSSIBLY eliminate your freezups, being that the computer will not have to fight over the little amount of resources that it does have!!

Since 1 week, I noticed a change in the way the duplicate screens works. On friday 15th september, there was a major update on what I believe was Windows 10. It lasted for long my boyfriend said. Since then, the way we open (log) on to the computer changed. All this just to put you in context.Before, say 1 month ago, I could use my TV to show whatever was on my computer screen. Travel slides, google maps, whatever. Since friday 15th, when I connect to the TV, I see on TV the backscreen (the car) of my computer. Then on the computer I open say and Excel file : TV stays with the image of the car. The TV will not show anymore what opens on the computer. I noticed that the movement of the mouse can be followed on the TV by the icons on the lower part of the screen. The icons on TV move accordingly to computer monitor. As time passes, the travel pictures come on the computer as they are the screen saver pictures. The TV then goes gray as no more picture. no sound, just no picture. Where do I start to correct this ?

I have Windows 8.0.  I use browsers to access my hotmail accounts via Outlook.  But I have Windows Live Mail App set to the same accounts.  I used to get a LockScreen update whenever I accumulated unread email on my main microsoft account.  An ancillary account had an issue that forced me to have a new password sent.  It seems since then I get no updates about unread mail on the LockScreen.
Live Mail is pinned to the Start Screen and I just checked that Live Tile is enabled.  I have sent a couple of emails from the secondary account to the main one using a browser and I can see that the email has arrived.  But when I look through the Windows Live Mail program it tells me there have been no messages received in the last two weeks.

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Hi guys,

I've recently just hooked my laptop up through ethernet cable to a shared internet connection.

I opened thunderbird to send an email through one of my mail accounts which is hooked up to its own unique online smtp server through its webhost only to receive the error message that I must change the smtp to the shared Internet connection's ISP smtp to send mail!! why cant i send through MY smtp? I've never experienced this before.

I tried changing the smtp anway to send an urgent email and thunderbird went through its processes the email was never received. I sent to test to myself after hearing this news, again the email never came through.

Any ideas guys?

Answer:Please check your Smtp is set to

It is irrelevant which SMTP you use. I have several email accounts from different ISPs, but I SEND all emails from all accounts using the same SMTP (the one from my broadband provider). That is also the only SMTP that is available to me as long as I connect via that ISP!
So, in your case you need to use the SMTP from your shared connection.

Been having some issues with my Windows Live messenger.

It seems that I appear offline to some contacts, and they appear offline for me. Yes, I know what I am doing. I am set up available (I've been using this program for 5 or so years). Occasionally, I will get messages sent to me late, as though I just signed in... even though both me and the person who sent them have been online.

Looked online quickly and found that people have similar issues, and found this:

- Right-click the Start button and then click Explore. In the window that opens, On the Tools menu beside Favorites and Help menu, click Folder Options. Click the View tab, and then make sure that Show Hidden files and folders option is selected.

I am really stuck and could do with some help.

I am using Windows 8 on my laptop which uses my Windows Live account to login. Problem is it has suddenly stopped letting me log in and I'm locked out. The message I get is "You can't sign into your PC at the moment. Go to to fix the problem or try the last password you used on this PC". I hadn't changed anything which may have made it do this.

I have tried the following but nothing is working:

- Changed my password in my Live account
- Used a previous password
- Plugged my laptop into a network cable rather than using just Wifi
- Rolled my laptop to a previous time

I can't refresh as it needs the password but I can access the command prompt. I'm not knowledgeable on command prompts so not sure what I could do here which might help resolve it. I also don't want to lose any files.

Any help would be great...thanks!

You could also try to enable the default administrator account from option one here Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable in Windows 8 and this may let you set the password - at least you could save your files.

Hi All - I am a bit desperate, having done a forced upgrade to W10 from W7 on Friday (three days ago). After the upgrade, I can no longer get in to Windows Live Mail 2011. It worked fine for years on W7 prior to the upgrade on Friday. I had to do the upgrade, since Windows told me W10 would be installed on my next restart.

The symptom is that WLM 2011 says 'starting' for about 5 minutes, then an error occurs which says

"Windows Live Mail could not be started. It may not be installed correctly. Make sure that your disk is not full or that you are not out of memory. (0x80041161)."

I tried MS support, but 5 techs and two hours later, I was no closer. Their suggestion is to uninstall and reinstall WLM. I am reluctant to do that unless I can get clear instructions on how to back up the files. I cannot lose the email folders and contacts - the email is my wife's account, and it has many, many years of information in it.

Actions I have attempted:
- run a repair on Windows Live Essentials and reboot - tried multiple times, no resolution
- Run the compatibility troubleshooter, and run the program in Win 7 compatibility mode - no fix.
- Went in to Services, and changed Microsoft Account Sign-in Assistant to start automatically (it was set to manual). Rebooted - no fix. When I try to start the service manually, I get an error message "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion". That happens instantly.
