    Hi. My bad about voicing my frustrations. I do not get out much. Please dont think I expect anyone to do anything about those service issues. I am either relieving pressure or relating the story when I do that. I will try to pay more attention and not rehash them again but if I do please...

    Thanks. I guess it really does not matter if the update did it or not. Its not like I can get them to reimburse me but I did think they would at least be interested in helping me solve the problem or determine that its was not the problem. I had heard they were upset with the HP partners in...

    Hi. I never ran or used any kind of bit coin anything myself. The bitcoin services being blocked by my firewall are not mine so I do not want them sending anything.I would love to know how they have remained on my system considering the extent and multitude of means I have attempted. Correct on...

    Thank you for informing me. From what I posted on the capabilities of the cpu is it possible to tell if mine has that feature? My son built his own gaming system and his opinion is to throw it in the trash and get another one but I dislike giving up on something. As far as someone exploiting the...

    Correct on the account. The only reason I wanted it was to have a record of how many times I contacted them. From what I have read Spectre affects newer ones as well. It does reside in the microcode and appears to be harder to eliminate than first believed. I also have an Nvme SSD and I suspect...

    Thats a good question.I never heard of it before today but from what Ilittle I have found it could definitely be an accomplice in what has been going on. Btw I could not access my outlook account it from my friends system. I have to find out more about spectre and see if a reliable way to...

    There is a chance I have Spectre variants 1 and 2. I am trying to figure out how to verify preliminary results with something more detailed.

    Lets find out. A friend is coming by in a bit. I will ask him if he feels comfortable with me doing that on his computer. If so I will do it and let you know. My primary concern is my computer. The account means little to me at this point beyond getting someone to pay attention. I cannot...

    It may have been but if it was it still leaves me unable to contact MS because they want me to sign in. I could make another account but could I really trust it either. I tried calling corporate again 3 days ago and kept getting "support has moved online". I refused its options while insulting...

    No. Also I prefer to set up without internet until I get it configured to my liking. I have done both ways to no avail.

    It already was before that. I have set up encrypted accounts and contacted everyone close to me. I have not used them for anything critical. I agree with your point though. Sometimes I even pondered whether I was really talking with Microsoft support online or on the phone.

    I did change the password and was informed I would be locked out before I did so. It would be easier to show everyone but I think most sites are afraid of getting malware that way so I will state the important points I can recall at the moment. First off is bootmgr with what appears to be an...

    I hope you did not misunderstand. I am not claiming this forum is affiliated. I gladly would alter my accountif I could access it at all but I am unable. I would probably just erase it though. I eventually will get through to someone to determine what transpired if my assessment is wrong. It...

    Introduce Yourself.

    Thanks for listening and allowing me to converse with you. I will gladly help anyone if I possibly can but this area is not my forte. I mainly came to see if anyone could help explain some issues to me. Thank you all very much.

    I was recently contacted by Outlook and told to reset my mail account because of possible security breaches and that it would be shut down for 30 days. I had tried telling them that many times before but no one listens. I was going to send them what follows but since I cant log in and corporate...
