Q&A 1Session 167

Lisa Toth    Can I set up two contact lists in outlook? I think I can but I don’t have time right now to figure it out. Once they are set up how do they work?

Sandy Tsutsui-Trujillo   I don’t think I have proper protection on my iPhone. What do you recommend to protect it from malware, etc.

Andy Toth   I want to do a clean reinstall of windows 10.  I have my data on the local computer synced with OneDrive. If I logout of my Microsoft account that is associated with that storage (I am using Office365), I should be able to reinstall windows in that partition and as long as I install OneDrive in the same location I should be fine.
