    Assuming you mean the website link and not email address, it goes to an official Microsoft website.

    Yes, the email address itself is not legitimate.

    The windows.com address. The link itself goes to microsoft, a different site. The address in question is shady.

    The link in the OP post appears to me to be OK.

    Okay, last I'll comment on this, as I feel I keep repeating myself. This address upload_2018-8-29_12-6-33.png is not the same as the link

    upload_2018-8-29_12-7-21.png .

    The first one upload_2018-8-29_12-8-2.png . That's all I'm saying. Carry on.

    Windows.com is a valid domain owned by Microsoft that simply redirects to microsoft.com.

    https://www.whois.com/whois/windows.com

    It's a URL not an email address. Any time you enter a URL into something where you're supposed to enter an email address you will get an error message saying it's not a valid email address.

    I freely admit my mistake then. While I know the difference, it didn't even cross my mind this morning. I was focused on preventing what I saw as a red flag, when I was in error. Even the best of us have our off days. My bad.

    Please don't be too hard on yourself and my response was not meant to be a reproach. It's always best to err on the side of caution and we do appreciate you being concerned about others and reporting such so no one steps into something that could have been prevented. I also hope it won't deter you from doing the same in the future. We rely on people to be our eyes when we can't be everywhere to find bad links and whatnot on the site. :)

    I appreciate the response. I do my best to give constructive professional advice, and have been helped along the way as well. Everyone stumbles. To quote Rocky, "It ain't about how hard you hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." Learn something new, even if it's something you already knew and missed.

    I am going to try memory test tonite and driver updates. Wondering if I have a hardware problem (inside fan) cause I am using a cooling pad under my laptop right now without the blue screen appearing. Could it be a dust buildup inside on motherboard? This laptop is 8 yrs old.
