Q: Solved: Advice re Talk Talk "HomeSafe"

Hi
For better or worse TakTalk is my ISP. They are offering a free complete security package called HomeSafe.
I have used AVG free for many years with no problems of which I am aware. For some time I used Zone alarm firewall but a couple of years ago I switched to The Microsoft firewall. Again I have not been aware of any problems.
Would it be advantageous to switch to HomeSafe or am I better off staying with the protection which has served me well?
Your views would be appreciated.
regards
phil

I'm at a friends house and they were explaining how she had got rid of her antivirus software because of this thing called Talk Talk HomeGuard. Antivirus software is a very importent thing on a computer and I knew that this was a BAD idea. I also read on the TalkTalk faq that:

_________________________________________________________________Will Virus Alerts replace the need for Anti-Virus software?

No, they complement each other. Virus Alerts extends protection to devices unable to use traditional Anti-Virus software as they access websites. i.e. smartphones or games consoles.

Could anybody recomend a good free antivirus untill she gets a paid one?

Having just purchased a new computer and set up my Talk Talk router, I am having serious issues setting up Outlook Express. I have spoken to Talk Talk for assistance having eventually got through to their 2nd line support but as I have a google mail E Mail address they were less than helpful. I have everything set up as per google mail help centre instructions other than incoming mail server (POP3) which is set as mail.talktalk.net. I can receive E Mails but not send. Everytime I attempt to send I receive the following error:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.googlemail.com', Server: 'mail.talktalk.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I had AVG free edition installed by the manufacturer of the computer prior to receiving it. As a computing novice I am unsure if this a possible problem; could it be?

Help!!
 

A:Solved: Outlook Express and Talk Talk

AVG could be a potenial problem if it is scanning emails.
Some have problems right from the start others don't have
any for months and then suddenly do. Email scanning is
not necessary.
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3
http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tutorials/email-scanning/index.htm

At the very least turn the scanning off. The best
solution is to uninstall AVG and see if you can install
using the custom installation. At that point choose to
leave out the email scanning.

For the gmail account information.
Try these settings first and see if they work - no Talk Talk settings.
These are US settings, if you are in the UK or elsewhere,
check the gmail for your area to make sure these are the ports used.
It appears you used Port 25 and that is the cause of that error.

Hi

I have setup a Speedtouch Wireless Router 585 for my sister...
The Talk Talk connection works fine on her modem, but when we try the router
it says its connected and has IP address and DNS Server address's but no internet
comes through, the lights are green indicating all is fine and conectivity test says all is OK
BUT it supposed to have...

DSL
ATM
Ethernet
PPP
IP
Internet

but Ethernet is completely missing from the line up... the manual shows what a perfect running conection should be and its all ok except for the Ethernet entry missing completley?

The laptop connects @ 100Mbps no probs via Ethernet and we can access the router settings via ethernet so that indicates that there isnt any problem with the LAN connection

when she trys to access the internet the internet light flashes to indicate activity but nothing happens..

Pings all fail...

what could be the problem?

we have the right username and password in and if any of the config were incorrect it wouldnt connect at all would it?

I have it set as so...
PPPoA (VCMUX or VCBASED)
VPI: 0
VCI: 38
Authentication: CHAP

are these correct?

it displays this below which im unsure about as it didnt say that on my IPstream connection (she on Talk Talk LLu maybe thats why i dunno)

How does your desktop connect, are you using a router or modem or what. We need more information to be able to help you.

What operating system does the desktop use and what security programs do you have installed on both your machines, it could be the firewall blocking things or it could be something else.

Hi,
I am a new member and I have a weird problem with Talk Talk. Moved into new flat and while we are waiting for our internet to be connected(?) our neighbour has told us we can use his Tallk Talk wifi which is unlimited and gave us the necessary code to connect. My wife's Xperia phone connected immediately and works fine on this connection. Her laptop (on Vista) however connected immediately but keeps coming up as Local Access only and won't open any web pages at all. My netbook (which is on XP) also connected immediately and show full connection at 54Mbps but also will not connect to any websites.
To further compound my frustration, both laptops will connect using my t MOBILE dongle and they work fine on that 7.2 Mbps connection. Also another neighbour has BT and both laptops will connect to the openzone from that (using my son'e log in as he is with BT) and open websites through that.
Does anyone have any ideas? I am not really confident enough to start deleting things and down loading new unless I know exactly what to do.

Has anyone suffered prolonged loss of connection using a talktalk wifi bband router? (ISP- aol) If so, what explanations were offered by aol?

I've got an aol engineer visiting Thurs.to examine connection loss (since last Weds). But I'm convinced the problem is with the router. But from the tone of the aol help man's questions I suspect he's already briefed his engineer to do his best to represent the problem as being either with my computer or positioning of router/filters/condition of wall-sockets - usual getouts.

The talktalk router is neww, issued Feb 12, after my original router, speedtouch, started suffering idle timeouts every day.

Can anyone advise on the most often-used excuses given my wifi engineers so I can counter them and convince the engineer to do an unbaised examination? Or could I be wrong and there really is a technical problem with my line or connections. Before the engr comes I want to be prepared to fend off ******** and recognize genuine cause-suggestions.

Any replies appreciated : but I have to use comp at local library so I shan't be able to respond promptly.
 

A:Talk Talk router, lost connection

Without further detail, it is really impossible to give an opinion.
If you have another computer - with wireless, or by using a wireless usb try that and if that does not lose the signal, it is a fair bet it something with the setup on this computer - is it not.

Sometimes changing the wireless channel may improve the result.
If some other local equipment is using the same channel that could cause the loss of signal.

I am sure it is best to wait until the engineer has been seen as it only 2 days or so
I've got an aol engineer visiting ThursClick to expand...

and then if you still have problems, and he has checked the broadband service to your property, please post back

Moving on. I found that if you have another program running like a movie player (VLC, MPC Star, media player etc... or iTunes, etc...) and try to make a call with google talk you won't hear anything (the other party gets the call though, as I learned, "WHY THE **** DO YOU RING 6 TIMES GRRR....") and have to try the call again and again an it's touch and go as to whether it ever works. Well close any other programs that are running that also output sound and the problem should go away.

OK so awhile ago my Pipex account swapped to talk talk since then I was getting disconnect anywhere from every 5 minutes to an hour. I solved this problem buy swapping from a Speedtouch 330 to a netgear N300 DNG2200.

now my connection is perfectly stable I haven't had a disconnect since I swapped which has been a very long time. However since the change my down speed has gone from somewhere around 250kb/s to 120kb/s (so says steam). I think this has something to do with the 330 using G DMT rather then ADSL, but tbh I don't really know. so is there anyway I can reclaim my lost speed I know the line is capable off? with going back to the frustration of repeated disconnects (i had to restart computer on every disconnect because it wouldnt redial otherwise )

other software that i have use.
Filezilla, serv-u and bulletproof ftp, all of these work great and do not crash if there is lost of connection, they all reconnect automatically which i love but the problem that i find, that i did not have with Winftp is the directories.

see i share out c:\movies, then i share out another like c:\music (c:\movies is the home directory.

i go to an outside machine and login, all i get is the c:\home dir why can't i switch the the c:\movies? i dont want to add shortcuts to the other directory becuase i would like to have different shares for different people.

how can i get a nice directory list like:
c:\movies
c:\music
c:\games
d:\whatever else
d:\some more stuff

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

Hello,
I have a Netgear DGB834Gv3 router and a Netgear WG111v2 adapter. When first setup I was wireless for about a week. Then I tried to update my security settings and went for a WPS2 PSK setting with password. Since then I have not been able to get the two to communicate. The router seems to be sending signals as it appears in the Available Networks window, and the adapter seems to be flashing blue lights occasionally, but the adapter won't pick up the signals.
Any ideas, please?

i have been using google talk/voice now for ages from gmail. Just recently my phone icon appears as black instead of green and I am asked to download the google Voice plugin by activating a link. However the link does not work and i can't determine how to get the google talk routine to work. I use it almost entirely to make outgoing calls to the UK.

Can you help please?

I use a program called Ventrillo which allows you to talk to other people, i use this program while i play World Of Warcraft. I have a very annyoing issue which annoys me and most certainly annoys other people talking with me. I can talk fine and hear everyone else fine but then randomly my mic( or whatever the problem is) makes a very large and loud static noise. i cannot hear this noise but the other people can. so to solve the problem i just disconnect from the server and reconnect, but it will happen again sooner or later. It is completly random and there is no warning of when it will happen. i have tried many things to try and avoid this, i have bought a new mic, re downloaded the program, swap the port which my mic is plugged into. My computer uses microsoft xp and i would realy like some help to get rid of this probloem so i can feel confident to talk to others without deafining them. thankyou for your time.

i have a network of four computers running windows 7, 3 workstations and one acting as a server for quickbooks pos v 11. they run fine most of the time, but every time i reboot the server machine, the others cannot connect to it. i have to drive over there and reboot again and try to fix the connectivity. all i do is reboot one more time, always works. i wonder if there is something i am missing.

they are on a vlan on a cisco 2950 switch. and the server has a static ip address, it is still correct. the host files of the other machines still allow the connection as does windows firewall. i can get internet from every machine, but cannot ping anything from the server. the other machines can all ping each other, but not the server.

also, the internet comes into the switch from a cable modem to a dlink router. it goes out to a wireless router as well, it is an unsecured wifi for the customers.

this is driving me insane. any ideas? thanx.

Problem: Message to download the plugin appears when I try to make a call. Downloading throws error 1605. Plugin was previously installed.

Solution: Another thread (dated January, 2013) advises to delete a port file and run googletalkplugin.exe to recreate it. This works until ---

New problem: I shut down the browser (Chrome) and restart it. Same message appears. When I check, the port file has been deleted. In short, now I must recreate the port file each time I start the browser.

Additional info: I also tried to uninstall the plugin but the system cannot find the msi file to do so.

Google Products has several threads that state the problem has been fixed, but they are dated the middle of last year. It appears to have returned. However, today (2/28/13) is the first time I have encountered it. I know it was working yesterday.

Please do not start duplicate threads for the same question. You have an exisiting thread located here where someone responded to your question but you did not return or answer them: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/1121574-i-am-trying-make-outgoing.html

Also, please remember that support is done through the forums not through email or Facebook. Also posting your email address in an open forum is a bad idea but a great way to get on spammer's emailing lists; for those two reasons I have removed your email address from both posts.

I have a relative of mine who is a little older than the average computer user and already suspicious of computers and the newfangled DSL and Wifi. He saw some story about website spoofing and Googlebombing on some news program or website and now he's become terrified of the internet. He runs a virus check after clicking on any link (even email from me!) and especially after clicking on a Google search result. He thinks every lag opening a program or a lag loading a tab or accidentally typing a "T" instead of a "Y" or the Wall Street Journal loading Google Analytics cookies is a serious virus issue and thinks every website ever is trying to give him a virus. He has the AVG site checker, but he doesn't believe it. I've thrown NoScript, AdBlock and WOT on his Firefox, too, and he doesn't believe they help at all with keeping the nasties away from his computer. I uploaded Spybot, MalwareBytes and AVG (and also Firefox, he was still using IE6) on his computer a few months ago (because he saw them on my computer, thought they were nifty and wanted them - he had McAfee for his Antivirus before, I believe) before he became overly paranoid and he scans with all three of those programs almost hourly.

The funny thing is, is that before he saw that report on TV, he had never gotten a virus on his computer in the six years he's owned it (and during those six years, he used the internet like a normal person - more or less) and he never finds ... Read more
