    I re-started...

    Avoid scams that use the Microsoft name fraudulently

    Cybercriminals often include the names of well-known companies, such as ours, in their scams. They think it will convince you to give them money or your personal information. While they usually use e-mail to you wrong, that they sometimes use the phone instead.

    Common scams that use the Microsoft name

    • "You have won the Microsoft Lottery"
    • Microsoft "requires credit card information to validate your copy of Windows.
    • Microsoft sends unsolicited e-mail with attached security updates
    • A person of "Microsoft Support" calls to fix your computer

    Avoid these dangerous hoaxes

    We do not send unsolicited e-mail or make unsolicited telephone calls asking for personal information or financial or repair your computer.

    If you receive an unsolicited e-mail or phone call which is supposed to be from Microsoft, and request that you send personal information or click on the links,delete the email or hang up the phone .

    You did not win the "Microsoft Lottery".

    Microsoft customers are often the target of a scam that uses e-mail messages falsely promising money. Victims receive messages saying: 'You have won the Microsoft Lottery!' There is no Microsoft Lottery. Delete the message.

    If you have lost money to this scam, report it . You can also send the police report to Microsoft and we will use it to help law enforcement catch criminals who send these e-mails.

    For more information, see Microsoft report fraud Lottery . To protect yourself against these e-mail hoaxes, you can use the same general orientation you use to protect yourself from phishing scams to protect you from these e-mail hoaxes.

    Microsoft do not ask for credit card information to validate your copy of Windows

    We require that your copy of Windows is legitimate before you can obtain programs from the Microsoft Download Center and to receive software updates from Microsoft Update . Our online process that performs this validation is called the Genuine Advantage Program. at no time during the validation process we request your credit card information.

    In fact, we collect any information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, e-mail address or other personal information.

    For more information, read the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Privacy . To learn more about the program in general, see genuine Microsoft software .

    Microsoft sends no communication unsolicited on security updates

    When we publish information about a security software update or security incident, send us e-mail messages only to subscribers of our security communications program.

    Unfortunately, Cybercriminals have benefited from this program. They sent fake security messages that appear to come from Microsoft. Some messages to attract the recipients to Web sites to download spyware or other malicious software. Others include an attachment that contains a virus . Delete the message. Do not open the attachment.

    Legitimate security communications from Microsoft

    • Legitimate communications do not include software updates as attachments. We never attach software updates to our security communications. On the contrary, we refer customers to our Web site for more information on the update or the software security incident.
    • Legitimate communications are also on our websites. If we provide information about a security update, you can also find this information on our Web sites.

    = Microsoft has none of the unsolicited telephone calls to help you fix your computer

    In this type of scam cybercriminals are calling you and claim to be of Support technique Microsoft. They offer help with your computer problems. Once scammers have earned your trust, they try to steal and damage your computer with malicious software, including viruses and spyware.

    Although the law enforcement can trace phone numbers, often authors use pay telephones, disposable cell phones or stolen cellular phone numbers. Better avoid fooling themselves rather than try to repair the damage afterwards.

    Treat all unsolicited sceptically telephone calls. Don't provide personal information.

  • Even though I have my Windows Mail spam set to the highest level, I continue to receive unwanted emails. For some reason any Windows Mail does not block them. How can I fix it?

    I have my blocker spam Windows Mail, the highest value which means I should only receive emails from my contacts.  Despite this, I continue to receive unwanted emails.  This has been so since I've upgraded to Windows 7.  I even went now install a machine program washing 'spam' which was a disaster as well.  I get about 4-5 spam emails a day - usually when I start the morning.

    How can I solve this problem?

    What Windows Mail in Vista or Windows Live Mail in Win7? If it is a POP3 account, you can filter your messages by using message rules. This is for Outlook Express, but it works the same either of the programs.

    Start with the only rule of AddressBook and you receive a message that you want people not in your address book (E-mail from companies, bills, your ISP, etc), you can add them to the rule.

    Box 1 - Where the From line contains people {check it out}

    Box 2 - Check: delete it & stop processing more rules if you want messages not in the address book to go to deleted items, or you can create a spam folder and direct them here.

    You can choose to delete the server, but be careful because you never have messages downloaded to any folder, if you choose this option.

    Box 3 - Click on the blue words contains people

    Click on the first address to select it. Scroll to the end and hold down the SHIFT key while you click the last address. This will highlight all. Right-click on it and click on from the menu that appears.

    Now, click Options and choose: Message * contains no of * the people below in the top of the page Options area, then choose: Message corresponds to one of the people below in the background Options box.

    OK your way out of the new rule.

    Now, only the addresses that you entered will be uploaded to your Inbox. You won't see other emails.

    Remember, if you add a person to your address book, you must add to the rule. It will not automatically be added.
