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've been having trouble with my ATT internet for a year or more. The internet download speed frequently drops to almost nothing (.53 or 1.23 Mbps) where it should be about 19-22 Mbps. They've been out here troubleshooting the line , changing
modems, and telling me whatever falls out of their mouth. So today I was looking in the ATT settings and system info. There I came across the event log which is difficult for me to decipher, but I do know what hijacked means. I'm most concerned with my security
camera (Stem-services) and my iphone being compromised. Here are some of the log entries. maybe someone can help me understand if something is going on. Thanks

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

thanks

Hi all, I recently brought a security camera (Wanscam JW0011 Outdoor)
 
Turns out it only has a 3 metre limit on the motion detection, I expected any movement within it's view (at least 20 metres) would trigger the motion sensor. But not the case.
 
So what I would like is a third party program with motion detection, which I'm guessing is more software based and will look at the video stream looking for movement (hopefully giving it a 10m range or so), compared to the JW0011 camera itself which doesn't require any connection to a PC so I'm guessing that's why the distance is so limited.
 
One problem may be there is no physical connection from the camera to the PC, only a wireless connection.
 
But there are some additional features I would like to keep, this currently can be done by the JW0011 with just the smartphone app, or with this PC software.
 
View live feed via smart phone
Instant alert to smart phone (or email) when motion is detected.
Save video, or photos for "xx" time when motion is detected, either direct to PC or VIA FTP to PC or drop box.
 
 
Does anyone know a program capable of all this?
 
Thanks

I have a wireless home netwerk using at&t 2wire. It uses WEP encryption. I have heard that the IPhone does not work with WEP and WPA/WPA2 should be used instead. I'd like to get some feedback from the experts on this forum as to whether this would make the IPhone usable on a home network and whether making this security change is a good idea. If the change to WPA is made, is there anything else required to make the IPhone work on the network, or will it then be automatic? Everything works fine right now on my home setup and I want to make sure I don't mess anything up by making changes. Please comment. Thanks very much in advance.
 

A:Wireless home network and IPhone

Well, WPA or WPA2 is far better than WEP in any case, so even if the iPhone works with WEP, I'd move up to real encryption anyway.

Every time I connect to my home network with iPhone 4 my whole network stops working. Windows 7 is not reporting any problems with connection, nor is my router. I have cable connection with my PC and wireless with my laptop, they both just stop working without any visible reason. Even the iphone i connect with wont work, but of course it says its connected and everything is ok.

I tought it was an iOS 5 problem, so I reinstalled it. It worked for an hour then its all back again. I even tried sharing my PC connection so that my iPhone is connected to PC and not directly to router. But that produced the same results.

My roomate's iphone 3gs with iOS5 works normally.

Any ideas? Thnx.
 

A:iPhone kills home network

Is your network slowing to a crawl, or really not working? Can you still ping the router from one of the computers?

I've seen a few people report that with the latest iOS update all their "stuff" is automatically uploaded to 'the cloud" and that has seriously limited any other use of their network. I believe that there is a setting telling the iPhone to not do the backup until further notice. If this turns out to be the issue you can let it do the uploading when no one is trying to network.

I have some questions about smartphone security, specifically the difference between the Android & iPhone platforms. My motivation is curiosity. I am not using this information to decide which phone to purchase (I use a Tracphone).

Reading several articles on various web sites, I get the impression of the following:
(1) Android is less secure than iPhone
(2) There is no known malware for iPhone

Are these statements true? Is there any hard data that documents malware for the different platforms?

Anti-malware software: There appears to be several products for the Android, but I cannot find any product for the iPhone. Is this discrepancy due to Apple's superior security technology?

Comments?

A:Android vs iPhone security

I have a iPhone 4S and use the native calendar app to run my life.
I would like to integrate the events in my calendar app to display on the desktop (maybe as a gadget) of my computer. I use a Windows Seven Ultimate 64-bit SP1.
Using outlook didn't workout so good.. My events doubled up on my phone on the 2nd sync. Plus. At the time, I couldn't workout how to display the events on my desktop. Maybe it was because I didn't configure the gadget correctly.

Ideal software would be able to do..
- Show events on the current day on the desktop.
- Show up coming events within the next 7 days on the desktop.
- Update every time i sync my phone. (iTunes has the ability to sync certain things (such as contacts and calendars).

Hi,

There's a program I use (Pocket Informant iPhone Outlook Sync) which requires that my PC and iPhone be on the same network in order to sync.

The problem is that it works only when using my home network. When I'm at home, from my PC I am able to successfully ping my iPhone, which is connected to my WiFi network. This works whether myh PC is also ethernet-connected or WiFi-connected.

When I travel, however, even though I successfully connect to the WiFi network on my iPhone and PC, I am unable to ping my iPhone.

I have tried disabling the Windows Firewall and I get the same result!

I can't believe that all these different WiFi networks I connect to (airport, hotel, work) that they all have a configuration issue, so I'm thinking that the reason for the discrepancy must be because of some setting/configuration on my PC/home network.

Is there anyhing else besides disabling the Windows Firewall that I can try?

Thanks!

You wouldn't want your devices pingable from a public network... thus the reason they're configured this way.

This alas, is a very well known and oft posted problem (www.whirlpool.com.au) and appears unresolvable!

Basically my Iphone - sitting on top of the router - will not consistantly connect AND maintain the connection.

If I keep at it over and over again it will eventually connect but then lose same in a matter of a few seconds.

As this NETGEAR modem also handles my wife's PC and a laptop without any problems, I have to believe it is in the iPhone settings that the problem exists!

OK, I have done the following:

1. Done a factory reset on the NETGEAR modem
2. Reset the iPhone to factory (Yuck!)
3. Reset over and over again the NETWORK SETTINGS on the iPhone
4. Set up "another" network with NETGEAR to see if the default one it finds is "faulty"
5. Pretty well done everything that has been suggested on the www.whirlpool forums where, as above, thias is a very common problem, all to no avail!

Everything points to a weak, poor or broken NETGEAER conection but the little connection ICON comes in loud and clear and when I do finally get a connection it works fine - for a few seconds!

The iPhone worked well on this exact system setup after purchase and it is only in the last few weeks that it has gone bad!

Wonder if I reset the phone back to original via iTunes if that would work?

My old computer crashed and I'm now on a new PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
I installed the latest iTunes successfully, but found that my iPhone 4 is now not syncing with it.

It can detect the phone, but it's not adding or deleting anything - apps, music or photos. I used to be able to select a Photo Folder to sync from the PC hard drive, but now it no longer works. It, however, works well with my notebook which is running on Win Vista.
There is no error message, the sync and backup apparently goes on only for a few seconds, and then iTunes says it is searching for which apps to install but nothing changes. Even when I've clicked Apply.

I've also tried closing iTunes and I've rebooted the phone but no dice. I've also uninstalled iTunes to reinstall. Doesn't work either. And yes, I installed with the 64-bit installer.

A:Free and simple alternative software to move photos in pc to iphone ?

This may be a silly question but have you tried connecting your phone to your computer by cable ?  I imagine you would need a USB A to Lightning one since Apple go their own way on connectors. That is of course assuming the iPhone has an external connector of any sort.
 
If it is possible to connect them by cable then, with the phone switched on, you should be able to 'see' the phone's memory in Windows/File Explorer. If you can see the memory then it should be a simple 'drag and drop' operation to move the photos you want across.
 
As you can gather my experience with iPhones approaches zero but this technique works with other phones and cameras.

If I delete the driver then the default that Windows looks for is the MTP driver (which fails) and then I manually point it to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers and it reinstalls the USBAAPL driver it had before.

Hi, I did a quick search in this forum for iphone related threads, but didn't see any that fits the bill of my problem, so I have started this thread. If it's in the wrong section, please let me know and I will move it.

Background:

Laptop - Dell Latitude 610 (1.7 GHz, 512 MB)
OS - XP Pro SP3

I am syncing the iphone 3G through itunes with my Outlook contacts and calendar items without any problem on my PC at home, but it's a completely different story at work with the Dell laptop. When I first got the iphone, it worked fine with the Dell for a couple of days, but when I came to work after the weekend, everything went south.

Symptoms:

Once I hook up the phone with itunes, it registers it, but when I hit the sync button, it goes to sync with my contacts, and stays that way for eternity. 10-15 minutes goes by without any changes, and meanwhile, the machine slows to a halt. I can't run any other program in parallel, and it would take 30-40 seconds just switching in between windows. So I would have to manually cancel the sync. Afterwards, the machine remains slow as molasses. I go to Task Manager and would see that the OutlookSyncClient.exe continues to run even though I exited itunes. This is not the case on my home computer. When I exit itunes, that particular process stops as well. If I click over to the performance tab, it would show spike sin CPU usage, and off the chart PF values, like in the GB range. It also is taking up 40-50 MB of memory as well... Read more

As recent days Emsisoft announced that internet security removed from product lineup and they stick with windows firewall and "fortify" that ( " blocks illegitimate manipulations of Windows Firewall rules " ).
So my question is :
Are there any needs for host and network based intrusion detection and prevention in home security suites?
( Eset & Kaspersky continue to deliver IDS & IPS in home lineup )

Hello,

I have days of security feed that I need to cut down. I guess the cameras weren't setup right to only record when it detects motion. So, I have hours of video that is just still images. I wanted to cut out all the stills and keep the motion parts of the video. But I don't have time to watch 48+ hours of video on 6 different cameras and cut it manually. I wanted to know if there is a software or tutorial on how to have the video cut down to where there is only motion. I know it can do it at time of recording, but I'm not sure about post.

Thanks for your comments,
Throdne

Having no knowledge of iPhones I am not sure what to look for 3s or 4s or whatever. I don't want anything outrageously expensive just something I can download music and use as an alternative to my Samsung Galaxy Ace.

My partner has one that she can access the net with and it costs her very little as opposed to the Samsung being extremely expensive to have any data capabilities.

A:Which iphone??

Well.. i personaly use and iPad from school and im having a galaxy s2 as my main phone. I am so annoyed with my iPad becouse of the lack of functions. If you want to listen to music the S2 can be an EXTREMELY good phone for you. It has a 1.2Ghz dual core cpu instead of the Iphone 4 : 800Mhz and Iphone 4s : 800Mhz dual core.
The screen is bigger and more high resolution and the s2 costs very little.
So i would recommend getting a S2 plus
and then buying a phone subscribtion that you like. it will probably be cheaper than most stuff becouse to be honest. iPhones are expensive as h..
Try looking into android a bit more. The ace is pure crap to say the least. Cheap android phone's are nothing to have. But the ones with a bit more horsepower is amazing.

I have owned my s2 in nearly a year now. i listen to music many hours a day with powerful headphones and i can have a special app that gives more power to them, has an amazing equlaizer and starts playing directly when i plug the headphones in.

also there are more free... Read more

I got an iPhone 3G today from 3, on a plan and stuff, so I can't break it. But I came home, and realised the iPhone was far more disappointing than originally expected, Bluetooth doesnt share data, only access to audio devices such as headsets and speakers, and itunes won't recognise it at all.. When connected, it charges, and appears in my computer, but itunes displays an error saying something about reconnect, iphone not recognised. This is very frustrating, as after around 4 hours of google searching, apple support ticket reading and other various attempts, I'm unable to fix this issue. I don't wanna go to bed my first night of having this new phone that's supposed to magically double as an ipod, and it doesnt even have a song on it to use as a ring tone other than the depressing default ones..

any suggestions?

i've found some people say to disconnect the wireless network, i unplugged the network cable connected to our home wireless gateway, no luck, disabled it, no luck, but maybe i'm doing it wrong.. any ideas are much appreciated

-Sam

p.s- can I use my home WiFi network to access the internet without incurring data fees?

edit: called three mobile, lady said something about some internet pack needing to be activated, and that sounded like more money so i told her not to worry.. she didnt speak english very well, and this has nothing to do with the internet.. so i dunno what to do
