    Is there any advantage to MWB Premium if the free trial never finds any threats? I usually run MWB FREE and MS Security Essentals almost daily and they never find anything.

    You'll get varying opinions on this. The free version doesn't provide real time protection. It also offers protection from ransomeware.

    For those users on Windows 7, I recommend the premium version.

    I agree with Tony.
    If you are running Win 7, you should have active, real-time protection.

    Is there an easy inexpensive way to upgrade from Windows 7? I do not believe I ever upgraded a computer. Only bought new ones.

    I believe Microsoft has discontinued the free upgrade path.

    IJAC is correct. The free upgrade path is no longer available.

    I am getting from 5-10 SPAM gmails a day and deleting them all. I do a Malwarebystes free and a Microsoft Security Essentials daily in morning and they never find anything. Never used to get but maybe one or two spam messages per day. Many of the ones I get I have already deleted several times. Any way to stop this from happening? Free gifts, sales pitches, etc.

    You can mark them as spam then they will go into the spam folder. Just deleting them won't report them as spam and you will keep getting them in your inbox.

    What email platform do you use?
    We can help you figure out how to report them so they get blocked.

    On your computer, open Gmail. Select one or more emails. At the top, click Report spam .

    It works a bit differently on my computer. I can't select multiple emails to report all at once.

    I have to open a single email. Then click on the the three vertical dots in the upper right to Report spam.

    I can delete them but can find nothing that says "Report Spam".

    When you clicked on the three vertical dots you should have been presented with a menu. Did you get that far?

    I will try it again. I am clicking the 3 vertical dots at top R corner of white rectangle beneath the red "close page X". There is no spam right now and I may have to wait for some. But I do NOT see tye menu you posted when I click the upper R corner 3 dots.

    That's not the three vertical dots I'm referring to. I didn't realize until now that there are two sets of dots. The three dots you referred to are associated with the browser in general. That's the one for browser settings. You want the one associated with the opened email.

    Look for the three dots in the upper R corner of the email that you're viewing. I'll be an inch or two below the three dots you mentioned.

    Hello; I have copied your result to a desktop Notepad and if I get some more Spam I will do as you say. I think I saw the second set of dots while viewing a Spam mail but at the time wa not aware what to do. If and when more spam comes I will be ready. Maybe I will get back to hardly ANY EVER like it used to be. Thanks for the help. I shall try and remember to let you know....BGBG

    Reporting spam may help, but I doubt it. (I have no evidence to proclaim that. It's just my gut feel).
    The best way to prevent getting spam is by not giving out your email address. Once someone has your email address, they may sell it to the advertising companies. It's just how it works. You can't prevent junk mail in your US postal service mailbox. You can't prevent junk mail in your computer mailbox.

    At least I will be DOING SOMETHING instead of just wishing. I believe I di view the second set of dots once but then did not know what to do. I am now awaiting more spam. First day there were not 10-15 spams in there.
