Preferred Solution: talk talk super safe boost wont uninstall on add and remove file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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.

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

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?


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.

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.

I recently hit upon a bug that has been plaguing me for quite some time and I am sure that I am not the only one that has run into this. I tried to post the bug and its fix to the google help forum but couldn't the topic/thread section was no longer accepting new additions or replies (???).

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.

Hope this helps someone searching for a possible answer, when I was I couldn't find anything that resembled this one. That is why I am posting it.

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?

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

BUT it supposed to have...


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...
VPI: 0

are these correct?

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 )

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?

Hi, I've read several posts like this one today but none solves my issue. I have two computers each running XP connected to a linksys EFAHO5W 10/100 hub which is then connected to an DSL modem. Each computer can access the internet via the hub first then the modem. Last year when I set up the network w/ three computers they all connected. After hooking them up again after a seven month disconnect they will not register a connection to each other when 'view workgroup computers applet button is clicked. Computer 1 has been upgraded during the disconnect period with more and faster memory as well as an additional hard drive. Computer 2 was able to see a third computer (computer 3 removed from the network a few days ago). but could not see computer 1. computer 3 could see computer 2 as well but it also registered no connection to computer 1.
Things I've tried:

(1.) switch around the connections on the linksys hub

(2.) run the XP connect wizard >other>this computer connects to the internet through a networkhub other computers connect through the hub> then I click first turn on printer file sharing (does not work) (3.) so run the wizard again and turn off printer and file sharing also does not work

Hello, I have 3 computers, for the sake of the explaination lets name them computer A, B, and C. All 3 have been set to the same workgroup name. I am using a Linksys BEFSX41 router. They all have the same type of access to the internet, not using a gateway. All 3 are windows xp SP2 as well. I could send files between all of them no problem, but recently somthing has happened.

Here we go: Computer 'A' will talk to 'B' and 'C' just fine. But 'B' will only talk to 'A'. 'C' can talk to 'A', but 'B' and 'C' wont talk to each other anymore. Are they having some file sharing disputes? Do they need counsiling? But seriously, they wont communicate with each other anymore and its weird

So, any ideas? Thankyou much!

It is not in any circles either, and yet when you click in the Hangouts in the search bar this contact appears as a suggestion. On other places like circles, find co-workers among the mess that Google+ is you can find other emails you have emailed are suggested and not this particular public.talk contact. And yet for Hangouts this is the only suggestion that comes first and it has no option to remove from chat and I can't find what stores it... Holy crap google

As it stands now, I have no desire to purchase windows 7. I have purchased 2 Vista PCs since its release, 1 32 bit and 1 64 bit and have had problems with neither, in fact I much prefer vista over XP. I just bought a gaming rig in June (I was unaware of windows 7 and the cutoff date for free upgrade). And I am not finding any reason to spend $120 on the upgrade. What makes windows 7 better than vista? Because I find very few things that would make it worth the upgrade.

Well dude it's whatever you make it out to be. If you've tested it before, it's really nice, to be honest. You can shuffle pictures as a slideshow(which makes your background change to your favorite pictures) it's faster than Vista, and on top of that, it's looks nice as well as it performs.

So i was wondering if any of you know about any software which helps in doing this, or atleast something that can make the PC have cool conversations with you and read texts with you (i know about narrator, very robotic).

Eagerly waiting for any discussions regarding this.


A:PC able to talk and listen

Although great improvements have been made with speech recognition, home computers currently don't have the capacity to comprehend fully spoken language. For a start off, words can have a slightly different meaning depending on how it is pronounced, and the context in which it is used. In addition, the human brain can recognise the same word when pronounced in many different ways by people with differing accents and dialogue inflections. Unless the speech recognition system in a computer has already learnt the word, and the ways that it may be pronounced, it cannot understand a word if asked to recognise it through audio input. Even if it does know the word, it might not recognise it if it comes in a different accent and inflection.

As regards the computer outputting speech, it is currently very robotic because the number of voices available is very limited. Although the pitch and speed can be varied, this usually affects all of what is being output by the same amount, unlike normal human speech which can change in pitch and speed dynamically. Whilst certain punctuation can make the pitch of the word prior to it rise or fall, the end result is still very much robotic.

Unfortunately, home computers simply don't have the memory capacity or resources in order to be able to speak and to understand speech in the same way as a human brain can. Mainframe computers fair better because they have more memory and resources available, in addition to more processing power thanks to th... Read more

My Lexmark Z65 printer can never find my pc when I bootup in the morning. If I unplug the usb cable and plub it back in, it's ok and prints great. I'm working with Win2k.

I have 2 basic USB ports as part of the Abit motherboard (Abit KX-333) that I installed when building this computer. On the motherboard there is the option for attaching a plug that adds 2 more USB ports in the back which I have done.

Within the Device Manage I have this listed in this order:
Universal Serial Bus controllers

Generic USB Hub = Generic USB Hub
USB Composite Device = Standard USB Host Controller (Keyboard)
USB Root Hub = Standard USB Host Controller
USB Root Hub = Standard USB Host Controller
VIA USB Universal Host Controller = VIA Technologies
VIA USB Universal Host Controller = VIA Technologies

Only the USB Composite Device has "Keyboard" listed as what it goes to. Nothing else is listed as working with a specific USB device, and beside the Lexmark printer I have my mouse and scanner using USB ports.

Included with this printer is a flashcard reader as a separate "device". On my taskbar I have 2 devices working, the printer and the card reader. Neither one is recognized until I unplug and replug the usb cable.

Ok I followed the sticke "installing Windows" guide above so let me just say that to start.

Although, I still have Partition questions.

When I go to reinstall my OS, I see I have 2 partitions...1 has like 26 mb of space the other I think is my C with like my current OS and much MB of space.

I tried to "d" to delete that one so I can install a fresh OS with no old files, but didnt seem to work.

If i try to install to the unpartitions space, I get an "not enought room" message if I recall...

So looking at 2 partitions, is that my entire PC space? I'm trying to wipe my PC clean and install fresh...I don't care about any current files.

I've used the guides, but they seem to hem me up when it comes to understanding the partitions on my pc, especially in the middle of this post:


A:Ok...talk to me about Partitions on my pc...

try delete both partition and install windows on it.
26mb of partition will surely not enough to install windows xp.

Installing video card ?

Did you start by useing the cd installation,then doing a website update ?
The update is just that.Start with the cd complete installation.
Don't be in a rush for newer drivers.
You might have installed the wrong web site drivers like i did.

Great come back guys for "affordable tech support" Dan O has no sense of humor, but I guess that's why he gets paid the big bucks huh lol. Anyway, I am looking to buy one of those programs that lets you speak rather than type. I want to stay 100% Microsoft, and there are so many to choose from. Are they really perfected yet re: voice recognition ect., or should I wait. Any feed back greatly accepted. Price is not of great concern, just want the best. BTW thanks to all who helped me buy my APC backup it's great, love it. You guys and gals are great.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt.
