Password Manager

What kind of free password managers do club managers use.
So far asking I have come up with “a three ring binder” and ” 3×5 cards”
We aren’t real high tech here aren’t we now.
I used RoboForm for years but it got a BOT in it somehow and I had to dump it.
No second chance for that one. Toying with LastPass free but it has some quirks I don’t like.
Should I be picky its free.

I have been using windows Defender but when I was marked as having a virus by a email server I put on my Norton.
The Norton caught the “bot” right off where as Defender didn’t even see it. Norton also found some other questionable file that I new about but again Defender didn’t see them.
This is why I question using the built in password manager in windows 10 are they as flakey as the Defender ?


Outlook 2007

On all my machines that I have outlook 2007 I am getting a warning on server can’t be verified or is out of date.
Option to go on button lets the email program to open and all works then. Is this only because Microsoft outlook 2007 date of use goes out this next month?
I have service pak 3 outlook installed that is what took care of this warning a few years ago.
I know its old but serves purpose. I know a lot of you don’t use Outlook and I might have to change to get past this problem.

However, unlike WanaCrypt0r, this ransomware instructs you to reboot your computer and then locks up your entire system. Long story short: if you get this infection, you’re hosed.
