    Are these offers really legitimate?


    Hi Folks, Just joined Tenforums but have been a member of Sevenforums for a while.

    I have an old copy of Office 2000 which I managed to install successfully under W7 but when I tried to install it on my new laptop running W10 Home I got multiple errors during the install and it wouldn't launch.

    Consequently I started looking at buying a newer version but Microsoft prices are just ridiculous. However I did find a couple of UK sites offering downloads of what they claim to be genuine retail versions of Office 2016 with a lifetime licence at very low prices - around £40 - £50.

    I'm very suspicious of this, it looks too good to be true and I'd be interested to hear member's views on the legitimacy of it.

    :)

  2. How to disable fake surveys offerring "discounted" offers as prizes

    Thank you for your reply.

    I am still lost but here goes:

    • Only known “change” was starting to use Edge browser (which came with new Asus in May) in addition to Firefox. No earlier problem with new or old PC prior to late June.

    • New PC came with Kaspersky with which I am uncertain after the contract period.

    • Ads appear when opening email messages ( which are genuine) and must be deleted before continuing with the email. Sites are those I have visited for years.

    • Below are samples of the ads and where possible their urls

    • Only steps taken are to seek help and direct profanity toward whomever sends this trash

    Any suggestions welcomed and thank you,

    John Shiels

    Are my Registry Files all legitimate programs?

    Isn't there a web tool whereby I can check if programs listed in my REGISTRY FILES are legitimate programs?
