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.)

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.

Post back with as much information as you can get about your machines and the way you connect to the internet and someone should be able to help you.

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

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 )

Line Attenuation 62.0 db 38.0 db

I have recently installed Talk Talk on my laptop. I went through the instillation CD and it seemed to go OK. The laptop will connect if hard wired through the router but wont connect wirelessly. It doesn’t even detect a wireless connection. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it twice to make sure.

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.

Sever Tab
POP3 incoming mail: pop.gmail.com
SMTP outgoing mail: smtp.gmail.com
Also put a check mark in My server requires authentication

Connection Tab
Check Always connect to this account using

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?

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..

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.

I have two computers both with Belkin 54g wireless network cards, one using WinXP and one Win98SE. Both the PCI cards are installed ok (although I did have to download a driver upgrade from Belkin for the Win98 one to work, thanks to HumanShame). In the system tray, I can see the TV-shaped icon with a red center on both PCs. If I double-click on this I get the utility to set up all the detail, but sadly it lists no available networks so I can't do anything else.

I thought I could connect two PCs with wireless network cards on an ad-hoc basis like this. The two PCs are in two rooms, one above the other, so are not too far apart.

What do I do next?

I'm trying to add a bit of wireless to a network but it isn't working out. Got a Belkin access point (F5D7130uk) and a wirless pci card (F5D7001uk) and plugged them in...
The AP doent seem to support DHCP but so far I've got it to talk to the rest of the network by setting up a static IP with the existing router.
Now the client sees the network and seems to connect to it but i cant get an IP address back and even if I set one up it still doesn't get any packets from the network!
Please help, I've got myself int a muddle and I'm getting chest pains

A:Can't get a PC to talk to a wireless network

Turn of any encryption on the AP until you get it working.

Set the channel used by the AP manually to 6 or 11. If possible, set the channel manually on the client side too.

Disable any proprietary wireless "acceleration" technologies on the AP.

Make sure you haven't left anything unconfigured on the AP. It may be that the AP comes with a very strict security out of the box and you have to manaully set up everything.

Disable any software firewalls on the client. Including the gay Windows Firewall. Make sure you have the wireless services enabled in Windows if you are not using some special software to connect.

Both machines then indicate that they are connected, with good signal strength (they are both sat in the same room.) but I am unable to access anthing across the network from either machine.
On the status page on both machines packets have been transmitted but not recived.
I have set up static IP address's on both machines.
When the machines are connected by my wired network they function fine.
( I have used different IP address for the wireless connections than from the wired ones)

Please can someone help and explain something to a complete numpty

Started off using an Origo AR 8400 Modem/Router for 2 wired PCs - which worked perfectly. We got a laptop and wanted to go wireless so bought a Linksys WRK54G wireless router. I plugged the Internet port on the Linksys into the one of the ethernet ports on the Origo and left the wired PC into the Origo - the internet worked fined on 2 wireless and 1 wired PC. BUT also wanted to network the 3 computers so plugged a cable between one of the ethernet ports on each router - this worked OK too and now had internet and could share files & printers
Firstly does that sound like the right way to do things?

With it set up as above the two routers used to go crazy sometimes and all the lights would flash quickly and there'd be no connection anywhere. This is solved by switching off/back on the routers.

Now fiddling around with it today to sort out another problem it seems I don't need the internet cable plugged in - with it like this I can't get into the Linksys's settings using

Please could someone tell me the proper way to do it!!

I have an older (but definitely dependable) HP LaserJet 4 Plus printer. It's worked beautifully through various generations of Windows...until my new computer with Vista. I bought a serial-to-USB cord to connect the two. When I plug the printer cable into a USB port, the computer immediately recognizes the printer's model and says it's installed. I set the printer as "default," but when I try to print something, it won't go through. It shows in the PRINT CONTROL queue panel, but nothing comes through to the printer.

Does anyone have any suggestions? HP no longer offers drivers for that printer on their website and subsequently won't offer help on their call-in tech line either.

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.

But don't take my word for it. /laugh

Here are the answer .

1 Malware comes in bad programing code
2 Malware comes in by HTML
3 Malware comes in by scripting code
4 Malware comes in Active- X
5 Malware comes in by pop ups
6 Malware comes when download of some program.

5 browser highjacking comes in by HTML
6 browser highjacking comes in by Active- X
7 browser highjacking comes in by scripting code
Than they go on that all Active- X and scripting should be turn off.

For one reason or another, I just have not taken the plunge into music download services yet, but after finding that iTunes has many of my favorite songs, I'm interested in them.
Before I dive in though, a few questions....

After you purchase and download your song, does it stay on your hard drive as an MP3 file? I thought I hard someone say that you can only play it through iTunes. Also can it be burned to disc?

Can anyone out there please try and help me get rid of 3 pop up messages I get following my stupidity to install the trial version of Lan Talk.net.

I installed this trial application, then found it does not come with an un-install util. I used the Remove Programs found in XP. This seemed to go OK. Now I live with the frustration of having the following 3 pop up messages on boot up:
1) Cant load Lan Talk Skins file
2) Cant load Lan Talk Language file
3) Cannot initialize Lan Talk
...all this after an uninstall and clean out of my registry.

Can some one please advise how to fix this. The support at Cezeo jsut say install and then uninstall...yes done that 3 times with no luck. Have they left some sort of spy-ware on my machine..
