    Great advice @Wynona
    You are 100% correct about Edge, it still needs a lot of work to be used daily.
    It does not make any sense to undo all the work which has gone into moving everything
    from AOL to Chrome.



    I have to agree with you @OldMike65 these two Lady's have everything covered and under control.
    any more and I would be repeating repeats!

    Simrick, Computiac, Dick, Wynona, and anyone else helping me.... thanks so much! I have always trusted you and tried to understand (which is almost impossible for me) and try to do what you suggest, sorry I have so many problems and questions. You are all correct....You have spent so much time and effort invested in helping me I would never do anything that suggested I dump everything you showed me for another totally different complicated plan . I am sticking with you guys! Dick , you knew just what I needed...visual aids. I followed your expert directions and uninstalled Avast. I am actually on Aol and I have not had one sandbox popup and I have not seen the viewpoint popup either. THAT is MAJOR!!!!! Still going to ditch AOL. Just have to send pertinent info to myself first.

    I know this is turning into a book but one more quick question. Hubby has his accounts set up thru Outlook. It opens Aol email (the only thing he uses Aol for) , gmail , and other stuff. I think even I could use it. What do you think?

    Thanks for everything!!! Eileen

    One question, Eileen: Are you talking about Outlook.com or Outlook that comes with Microsoft Office?

    I use Outlook (Office 365 2016) and can tell you it's just about the easiest email client I've ever used. I have several email addresses, and I can read them all with Outlook.

    IOW, you can add eileen@thisclient, eileen@thatclient, eileen@theotherclient. Here's a link on how to do it, but don't use the manual setup; just let Outlook configure it itself and you should be OK.

    Wynona, it's Outlook that comes with Microsoft Office. I have AOL listed for email on outlook but nothing is coming over. How do I get just my emails from AOL sent to me???

    Did you give it your password?

    Click on File>Add Account>give it your email address and then follow the prompts. It will ask for your password; enter it, and be sure to check the "Remember my credentials box. It's really been simplified since I set mine up.

    You'll do this for each account you want to use.

    Couldn't agree more. Since Windows 7 and when Microsoft introduced MSE, my chosen AV application has been from Microsoft. MSE in 7, Defender in 8 and later. Never had an infection, no viruses, malware, nothing like that. An important factor that has helped me to stay clean might of course be that although I am an idiot, I am not dumb; I know what to click and what not, I know which sites to visit and what not, I know which email attachment open and which not.

    I quite often don't know if I should laugh or cry when I see posts from an obscure OP about "I have this and that scanner installed and I use two hours every day to scan my system and clean registry and tweak eberything, yet I have this issue". I find it extremely amusing that people are completely unwilling to see the relation between the amount of third party tweakers, cleaners and such they use on regular basis and the issues they are having.

    Oh heavens's sake, which is more important: to fix an issue or find out what caused it? My recommendation goes further than just a new user profile: a clean install, backing up personal data and then "boldly go...".

    One thing that I can't understand is that OP posted first post five days ago. A clean install, re-installing all software, restore personal data, restoring those "hundreds if not thousands" bookmarks, all that had taken maybe half a day.

    So am I somehow disturbed or mislead? I have used Edge as my main browser since 9XXX builds. In few Insider builds recently there was some minor issues, other than that I've had a smooth ride. Compared to amount of threads and posts about Firefox having this and Chrome that issue, I'm just happy that Edge works so well, doing what browser should do.

    I think that was enough for now to start a good fight

    Exactly my point, glad you noticed it. Five days, five pages in what would have needed five words: Please do a clean reinstall!
