Should I avoid subscribing to lists that ask me to confirm my email? Email Address:

H. Should I be suspicious? Subscribe to mailing lists that ask me to confirm my email. The address:

When I subscribe to email lists from well-known entities or businesses, it usually says “You are not subscribed now” or “Are you sure you want to subscribe?” When I try to subscribe to email groups from unknown groups that I have never been in contact with, they usually ask: “Please enter it. The email address you want to delete. Why did they need it, because obviously they have my e-mail? Email Address: I’m afraid this is another hole they may have in my computer.

Since the COVID-19 crisis, we have all been flooded with fake emails, notifications, and I want to make sure this type of inquiry is not another attempt at fraud. Am I too paranoid? Thanks for the help.

– Sheila Walter

A: You are not very paranoid. There are people out there trolling to active email addresses, արկել sending out unsubscribing emails is one way to do that.

So yes, I will refrain from replying to emails from people, companies, or organizations that you do not know or trust.

H. Since the laptop has been returned from Microsoft Repair Center, press the power switch twice to start the laptop. The first time I press the switch / switch I get the name “DELL”, then the four Microsoft blue windows և և nothing, just a black screen.

Then, after switching off (pressing the switch / switch), waiting for about 10 seconds, I press the switch again և the laptop starts up properly. This happens every time I turn on the car for the last two months.

The laptop is a Dell XPS 15, և it is a little over 6 years old և I have never replaced the battery, but I have one recently received from Dell.

What do you think is happening? Do you think that replacing the battery will only solve the problem (although I understand that it should be replaced anyway).

– Mike Cowan

A: Your problem is unlikely to be related to the battery, especially if the computer is turned on, you have the same problem.

My best guess is that Microsoft probably updated Windows when you were inside the device for repair և It may be a conflict with your computer’s BIOS or hardware.

Some other users who have encountered the same problem have found solutions.

First, try turning off the “quick start” feature. To do this, go to Control Panel և Run the Power Options utility. Next, click the “Choose what the power button does” button. Finally, click “Change settings that are currently unavailable.” You will then be able to turn off Quick Launch.

If that doesn’t solve the problem, you can find detailed instructions for making changes to the notebook BIOS here: https://www.dell.com/community/Laptops-General-Read-Only/computer-need-to-boot-two windows to open / mp / 4042474 # M706621

If that’s no solution for you, it’s time to consider whether you want to invest in at least one middle-aged computer or spend it on something new.

H. A poster displayed when you open Word or Excel announces that support is ending on October 13th. Since Office 2010 still works for me, I was ignoring this announcement.

What does it mean for support to end? Will the office continue to operate?

– Martha Toferi

A: When Microsoft terminates product support, it means that the company will no longer provide feature updates or fix product security vulnerabilities. Your Office 2010 will continue to run as intended.
