Re: mail

In reply to: bing search

Either there's some spy software on your PC looking at your searches or it's msn/microsoft.

Thing to try:
- don't use msn as your homepage
- don't use Bing as a search engine
- disable the spyware addons in your browser
- use another browser (Chrome or Firefox) for searches
- use another browser for mail
- search for malware with, for example, MBAM
- use a local account in Windows 10, not an e-mail inlog
