Getting spam reminder event in Windows notification center everyday

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, recently I'm getting some Russian spam (about some online making money) even in my windows notification center. It asks me to snooze or dismiss. When I click on that it opens my calendar I think (I don't remember well, didn't pay attention) and when I go in Windows calendar I don't see that event anywhere. I'm not home at my PC besides weekends & my wife is using my PC and she told me that this event pops up everyday. However, I noticed this spam even in my Google calendar as well and it was there in calendar. I deleted it and all the upcoming events and also changed event settings there from "automatically add events" to "no, only show invitations to which I have responded". Note, I have two accounts in my windows mail attached (both google and outlook). I checked outlook calendar, maybe that even was there too like it was on gmail, but surprisingly it wasn't there. So I have no idea from where this reminder appears everyday in windows notification center. Can anyone help me or advise me what to do? Thank you in advance.

Yes, I do.

Then it's notification from your email client. There is no other "spam" than email spam.

BTW. Try eM Client. Is much better.

I don't understand why do I have this notification there? It says to not miss the chance to earn some millions or something in russian. It's definitely some spam advertisement. Why or from where I get this reminder everyday in my Windows notification center?

Because your built in email client uses notification center. As many other programs (including eM Client that I recommend if you made that settings). Disable notifications from email client.

 

I have configured about 8 email accounts (job, private, paid and free) in my email client and I receive over 100 spam emails every day. Most of them I filter automatically using my own predefined filters, so all I need is to empty trash. But still - I get new spam every day that I must delete manually (or add rule to filter list). I miss chances to earn milions every day. I miss also chances to get great perfumes, take care of my health, buying great watches and enlarge my... whatever. :) Every day someone wants to prove me that my account was hacked. Many people ask me for help. So many girls wants to meet me. Well - it's modern times - spam is annoying. Especially when someone (like me) wants to have control over it and do not use automatic spam filters from email / hosting provider (because some of that spam may be useful for my job - like offers from some type of producers).
