I am OneCassie posting my first question; I am a senior lady, so not always quick as I use to be.  HA!!  HA!!


I am on a DELL Desktop running Windows 8.1  -  new in April, 2014.  Still finding my way thru Windows 8.1 after ten years of XP.


I have two "Junk" Folders in Windows Live Mail app and cannot delete the second one.  Manage Folders option does not list delete option when opened for that folder.  Click on the "Junk" Folder, it starts searching [nothing listed as in it] and it will just keep searching.  This app was on my DELL at the beginning with just one Junk Folder.


I prefer my Outlook.com mail that I have and  have  had for several years on my previous HP running Windows XP;  then Microsoft "switched" me to Live Mail.  I have an Icon on my Desktop for Outlook and all works just fine.  If I am reading correctly, recently Microsoft states it is upgrading Live Mail users to Outlook . . .  Does this mean I can [simply] uninstall/remove Live Mail app from my computer?  Or, is there a "repair" for this issue?


Also,  I recently uninstalled Norton 360 and my current and only AV is Spybot.   I used it for several years on my HP - the Free edition; now I have purchased their upgraded edition.  This DELL came with McAfee on it and I uninstalled it when I installed Norton.  I think Norton was doing some "goofy" things, ie; shutting off my Windows Firewall and not turning on theirs - that can be bad news!!    Would I be better served by using Windows Defender and uninstalling Spybot or [if possible] turn off Spybot's AV and just using their "live Protection" Spyware function?  I am not familiar with Windows Defender and, apparently cannot turn it on until I remove Spybot.


Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
