    Bogus Microsoft messages


    Why cannot/does not Windows "DEFENDER" prevent the frequent messages that appear on this computer stating that Microsoft has detected a malfunction and we need to contact the support phone number given immediately. The whole thing almost looks genuine and must fool lots of people. I'm wondering what "DEFENDER is actually good for.

    Windows 10 Giving Bogus Anitvirus Turned Off Messages


    Wow, tested Webroot SecureAnywhere with the latest Windows 10.

    Hadn't found any bogus messages. Maybe, I'm lucky after all.

    Bogus Hotmail "1 Unread" message indicator (WM 6.1)

    Running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional on a Verizon Wireless XV6800 device. My phone is displaying a bogus Hotmail 1 Unread message indicator, and I can't get rid of it. When there are no unread messages, the indicator nonetheless shows on the Today screen,
    at the bottom of the main Hotmail messages screen, and also to the right of Inbox in my Hotmail folders list. So far I have cleared all of my messages, powered down, done a soft reboot, and pulled the battery. No luck. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks! Eric
