  • Upgrading to Windows 10 has some side effects

    Greetings, My Compaq desktop Windows 7 died last Nov. I bought a new desktop with Windows 10, However, most of the programs that I reinstalled, don't work as user friendly as they did before. Also, I will do a better job of saving my login info to a external drive and not to the internal one. I was not able to recover anything from the internal drive My MicroSoft Office 7 Outlook now for some reason lets in hundreds of SPAM and seems to filter out my good sites like from here. I have edited the Junk file parameters but I still have to go to the Comcast web site to check emails before I delete them permanently. If I buy the newest version of OFFICE, do you think Outlook will work like the old version with Windows 7? Thank you for any suggestions.

    You don't need to but the latesr version of office if the issue is Outlook, just use Outlook online and the filters are already set up to not allow spam e-mails, if your e-mail address is "out there", you will be getting spam but can block these with outlook online and it does not cost you anything, just go to

      It just seemed odd that the only thing that was changed was upgrading to Windows 10. I installed the MicroSoft Office 2007 the same way the Compaq Windows 7. My internet connections were the same. I will have look into like you said and see if I have missed something in the security setup. I will try looking into Outlook on-line and see if there is any help there. Thank you for the suggestions.

        As for Outlook being a spam magnet, I've had my fair share of battles with that too. While newer versions often come with improved features and security updates, there's no guarantee it'll completely solve your Outlook woes. However, it might be worth a shot if you rely heavily on it for your emails. And hey, have you heard about Windows 11 Professional? It's the latest buzz in the tech world, promising some exciting features and improvements. Might be something to consider if you're looking for a smoother experience. Oh, and if you're ever in need of software, I stumbled upon this site called . They've got some good deals on Windows products.
