    I am on Windows 10 and received an e mail and attachment that said 'Elevation Required' I googled it but it didnt seem to relate to windows 10 as the tabs they suggested I couldnt find. What should I do to remedy this message please?

      Delete it, it's probably spam. What email address has it come from ? (Hover your cursor (the pointy arrow thing) over the sender's name to find out)

      Its a virus. Its looking for permission to run as an admin to screw your system up.

      Don't open attachments from people you don't know!!

      I know it is a genuine e mail that I was expecting. Last week I went to shut down and Windows did an automatic update which deleted a lot of unused items even my printer which I hadnt used for some time on this laptop. I got rid of my tower pc some time ago and bought a 2nd laptop which I leave connected in the bedroom for printing etc as I did my tower but takes up less space.

      I think it just means your laptop needs to be a little higher. Try putting a book underneath it, that should do it.

      'Printing etc' is a new euphemism to me. Would fool the wife, I guess.

      I dont need to fool my wife on anything. I assumed it means that the security rating and user must be updated but I dont know how to do it and google didnt help much either so back to good old NSC.

      That could be it, yes.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.
