  1. Hi... This sure ruffled some feathers... Mainly the "Non Smokers" I was fully expecting that from selfish people.... You "Non "Smokers" have all missed the PLOT. It's about "Freedom Of CHOICE" You want to think yourself lucky that the UK Government haven't or are not plaining to make it LAW that "Non Smokers" have to walk into a number 48 BUS at the tender age of 65, just to save paying you any Pension that you've worked hard for all your life... You would moan then, because your "Choice" has been taken away from you... Now I know a number 48 Bus would more than likely kill me. But that i
  2. Hi All UK Smokers Did you see the news the other day when Nick Clegg opened up to the country "Your Freedom" Well I just had to get in there, below are the links to my comments so far. I have also put a link to a "Group Discussion" on my site.

    Hi... This timer still likes MSN & all my family. A GR8 way to keep in touch even if they are off line.
  5. Hi Having spread the word on a couple of forums now, after this was first brought to my attention by a friend from across the pond. One forum I set a poll question, surprisingly not many people had heard of "Flash Cookies"
  6. Everyday I keep clicking from my "Live Space" Woo Hoo
  7. Trust "Bill Gates" with security... Your having a laugh
  8. Hi. I have these two "Short Cut" zip folders with the short cuts un-zipped in each folder on the desk top for the two main user, one is "Admin" & the other is limited. System Restore is activated as I can still manually, but when you run / click on the "Desk Top" icon I get the following error messages These were both run with full admin rights. Regards El Tel
  9. Hi. Thanks for that information, I've downloaded both short cuts to their Lap Top from my home. As I'm going there tomorrow and have another read of what I've got to do and if I need more help, I'll give you a shout...
  10. Hi. Wireless router exchanged and following your last link, all is set up & working fine complete with padlock I would still like to find away for this on "Start Up or Log On" I had a look as though I was going to do a "System Restore" and it is not making its own "Snap Shots". Could I be missing some tick box as "Windows 7" setting are so different to "XP" Regards El Tel
  11. Hi Thanks for that link and it looks like I had worked out which ones to open. On my way round there this morning, I called to pick up another Netgear router from her daughters who is not using it at the moment, along with her "Passphrase". On power downing the modem and connecting this other "Netgear " wireless router which the Lap Top detected and once the passphrase was entered connected to the Internet first time. Conclusion The brand new router could be faulty anyway that is now on its way back to the shop to be exchanged . Hopefully that will sort it...
  12. Hi The wireless Router is "Netgear WPN824v3" and the first thing it done was to update its own software ( And it was Brand New out the Box ) I also located the user manual, I have also found some GR8 walk you through Video Tutorials. though these don't relate to "Windows 7 Home" by the way I've got the padlock showing but I'm locked out when going through the "setting up the router" I note that when you select "Europe" then "WEP" ( for now ) and "Security Encryption (WEP)" as is. I then entered a Passphrase, click on generate. I get 4 keys where they only show one. I left it defaul
  13. Hi... I should have mentioned this with my last post. I have now un-installed MacAfee and installed Norton. Thanks for the link for the Netgear site, but I must be missing something from there instruction and following an old post from 2007 with this same problem on this forum. Checking out links from that post, this issue has been around long before 2003 . These manufactures still haven't got their heads together and come up with a simple "Plug & Play" option that only asks you for a "Password" and then sorts the rest out for you. Perhaps we will have to wait until 2020 for t
  14. Hi. Happy New Year to everyone This Laptop is connected to a standard UK Virgin Media modem at the moment with two outlet connections, while this is only temporary; until they can get a wireless router out of "Virgin Media" I can't see why not. I did... Please any here must be in layman's terms suitable for a prime ID 10 T user... Regards El Tel
  15. Hi With a .NET account using "Windows Live" space you can access "Skydrive" which will give you 25G of On-Line storage to share or keep private There is also "Google Doc" both a similar, to which I use both and access them from anywhere and they are FREE ( I love that word ) Here is a Google Doc Tour
  16. Hi. I found it top right hand corner, which has now been set to "Bing"... If any one else has been asked to remove / uninstall it you will find, or I did; that you will have to make it your default search provider first, if not; like me you will be unable to remove it as "Remove" is greyed out. Regards El Tel Edit Typo Error
  17. Hi Thanks for that link, made for an interesting read. Post No2 links were far to technical for me especially when it got down to the "Script" bit. Then post No3 he warra bit aggressive ( Glad he is not on this forum ) Tried to take control of that folder with no luck or didn't quite know what I was doing, so before I booted into Safe Mode. As I had already managed to rename the folder. This might just be a workaround that worked for me. What I tried, without going into Safe Mode. I made a "New Folder" and left it with the default folder name as I caught a key and i
  18. Hi The "Search Enhancement Pack" folder is all sorted. I'm just left with the folder "441cb5f0af3d8c67a25579c816" in my opening post, that gives an error when trying to delete it I've Re-Named the folder "441cb5f0af3d8c67a25579c816 WhatThis" and still get the above error. Regards El Tel
  19. Hi. Did some more research on this and running some "cmd" lines that didn't remove it either and the last resort was to just delete the whole folder which did work. Still can't find this to delete New one Up-Dated This is very misleading for the first time user and should have been explained a bit more. While is looks like to be alright, in fact it found 20 issues and 99 patches that needed to be sorted and these only shown up when and if you pluck up the courage to click on the "Advanced Settings" Deleting the folder doesn't work. An error message says
  20. Hi Yes Spot on ... I've been doing some more research, but I am struggling to get my head around all the technical jargon to do with Networking two PC's over one Internet. This lead me to look in "Help & Support" on my PC and there is a "Network Wizard" but until I next visit my friend, I have no idea what questions this is going to throw at me. I haven't clicked on this wizard on my PC, as I don't have a spare PC and it might hang on me waiting for another PC? Regards El Tel
  21. Hi Thanks for clearing that up and at least we now know that when we click on these links we are helping to support this GR8, GR8 forum. Long live PC Pitstop Regards El Tel
  22. Hi Redneck Thanks for these links. I have another question that requires This Laptop is connected to a standard UK Virgin Media modem at the moment with two outlet connections, while this is only temporary; until they can get a wireless router out of "Virgin Media" I can't see why not. I did... ? When this home Laptop is connected to the Internet, her husband can't connect his works Laptop at the same time. I can get them to work one at a time by disconnecting one, but I have to switch the power off to the modem, which indicates this must reset the modem, b
  23. Hi Having just had some valuable from you GR8 Gurus here, I noticed that after doing a "Full Scan" I started to wade through all the "Tips & Suggestion" I note from this page that "Carbonite, MozyHome Free" and "Acronis True Image 11 Home" links look like they are "Affiliate Links" and the latter does not work anyway. More importantly if they are meant as an "Affiliate" link, then I feel this should be clearly stated as so and to whom benefits from it. Regards El Tel
  24. Hi All I could see on the box was Ver 3, still not installed. Have you got the link for us to go off and read... There is only what "Dell" insisted on installing, which turned out to be "MacFee" security suite My kinda language FREE I just that word... I've set the Laptop up so I can gain access from here to save me having to rush round in the event of any help required, I'll be just a phone call away for them. Regards El Tel
