All of a sudden I have a Spam folder and it is filled with "stuff", I don't have before and want to know how to get rid of the "stuff", I know I can remove the folder, but do not know if this is something I should do.
Thunderbird does not use the word Spam or create a junk mail folder. Your e-mail provider.
Just look in the folder and remove any message you want. Some spam filters are not that large to determine what is or is not spam and there could be some messages in there that you want to read or keep.
It is not the end of the world. Simply sort the message in there.

Windows with Yahoo mail.
I use windows mail and put so once I go to windows mail notes are deleted from the Yahoo Server. Now all of a sudden, they go in the trash of Yahoo instead of disappering. I use Yahoo mail for junk and spam of the screen, empty the trash from Yahoo, then open the remaining notes with Windows Mail after the release of Yahoo. This has just begun.
It is not clear if you use a POP3 server or an IMAP account - it sounds as if it were an IMAP. I don't know how messages get tossed into the trash from Yahoo rather than be removed. You could try to remove the account, closing and reopening of Winmail opener and then adding the new account. This resolve sometimes strange questions. Also check interference antivirus (see www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3).

This make all folders on the computer and all the files stored inside. The individual files are not performed. If I remove read-only folders and files and click OK, reopen the file and the attribute has been applied.
Any solution to this problem s.
It's not a problem... it is a feature.
At a time in the past, Windows has decided that the read-only attribute means nothing, because it applies to files, so Microsoft 'solved' this bit to indicate to whom the file has been customized. There are other methods available if you really don't want to do a write-protected file. The details are explained in the following Microsoft KB article. I recommend reading the article in full to understand what Microsoft did...
"You can not view or change the read-only or the attributes of system files in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7"

I unflagged all the folders and files that I share on my home network, however, I am not able to rename them or save them on my PC from my laptop on my wireless network. This has happened since May 12 and I suspect an auto update changed or recover from something.

Thanks for getting back to me Mick!
I did a restore to 5/10 when I had no problem, but the problem persisted.
I'll have to try Norton support. This may be something they did.
In the meantime, I managed to change the names of files by connecting to the PC with the account of my wife who as co-owner had equal rights and the sign of the laptop is its ID as well so it worked, but it isn't always fair.
Once again, thank you...

c. in the programs and features window, find locked files Wizard of the program in the list of programs.
d. select the option Uninstall. (If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.)

I don't know if I've done something right or if it is a real problem. I used my wired network and Windows Easy Transfer to transfer files and folders of old readers logics partioned 5 XP to my new family Win 7 Premium 64 bit, also with a hard drive partitioned. Transfer all the folders and files placed in the new Win 7 C: OS drive. What a nightmare! I had to return the computer to factory settings (out of the box) and all over again.
I should have been smarter. After all, how a stupid machine knowledge where to put each logical drives and folders without receiving instructions. But then it should have been a warning that the machine is not do miracles.
Caution: do not use Windows Easy Transfer if you have a partitioned hard drive.
