  1. I tried everything suggested here and I still have the problem. Maybe I could try uninstalling and re-installing the wireless gateway but I don't know how to do that.
  2. Click on Start Click on Network Click on Network and Sharing Center Choose Manage network connections on the Task pane Right-click on Wireless Network Connection Select Disable OK. I did all that and it still didn't work. If I disconnect my ISP but leave the computer on, the neighbor's xfinity ISP connects. If I shutdown my computer and then reboot, my ISP connects. I don't have this problem with my laptop, which I'm on now, just the desktop, and I noticed that the neighbor's ISP name is above my ISP's name in the popup window that you see when you click on the internet connection icon at the bottom right of the screen; the window that says "Currently Connected To" and shows a list of my and neighbor's ISPs, but my ISP name is over the neighbor's on my laptop. Does this mean anything? Sorry this is dragging on.
  3. It's the name of his internet provider, like ATT, and so on.
  4. I tried to disconnect all the ISPs that show up but everything has to be disconnected for it to work, and the xfinity one keeps reconnecting itself.Now what? Good grief.
  5. Sorry. I have a Compaq Presario desktop, SR2180NX, using Vista Home Premium, and a Pentium D processor 820. I noticed that when I shut down my computer and then later restart it, it will sign in to my ISP like it's supposed to. But when I leave my computer on and disconnect from my ISP, that's when the neighbor's xfinity service connects automatically. I can't see why I can't adjust something to keep this from happening. I hope I don't have to do a complete re-install of the OS.
  6. I'm sure he was joking. Anyway, I tried his suggestion and it didn't work. It keeps reconnecting. I tried the window with x-infinity on it that said "Connect even if not broadcasting." and unchecked the box. That didn't work. It reconnected. So I I called my ISP and the lady said to try going to "Manage Wireless Networks" and remove x-infinity from the list so it wont connect automatically. It still reconnected. The lady asked if I connected with x-infinity by mistake and I told her I had, so she said my computer is remembering that connection. But shouldn't I be able to remove it by doing that? My laptop connects with no problem but I'm sure I didn't use the x-infinity connection to go online by mistake on it. What can I do?
  7. I have a strange problem. My desktop is set to connect to my gateway automatically but I need to use it not connected a lot while I transfer CDs and do other things, so I don't use internet time needlessly. I signed off my service but after a while I noticed I was connected again, but I was connected to x-infinty, which I don't have a subscription for. A neighbor does, which I can see when I click on the internet icon and the window pops up showing my service and all the nearby neighbors' services. It says his service isn't secure. I have no idea who this is and don't want to steal their service when I disconnect from mine, as it keeps reconnecting automatically. I tried to find out how I can connect manually only but had no luck. How can I help this neighbor have a secure connection? Someone else may be using his service to save money. How can I keep from connecting to it over and over? And why I don't have this problem with my laptop, when I disconnect and it signs on again automatically? Thanks for any help.
  8. O.K. The program is called Magix Midi Studio Generation 6.
  9. Hello. I have a midi studio program I can't use. When I start it, I get a message that says MSG6 and the program wont work. I tried deleting the program and reloading it, but I still get the MSG6 message. What can I do. Thanks.
  10. Hello again. Tonight I plan to go to the same restaurant and tell the manager what you all said. I think he said once that he's not really computer literate. I wonder if he deleted the temp files but didn't delete them from the recycle bin? I'll check on that and if he did, then see what your suggestions do to help the problem. Thanks. jcritchie
  11. Hello. A man who runs a restaurant where I eat has a laptop up front where he works. He reads the news and other things on the internet on it. He keeps getting a message "C Drive full" on it. He says he deleted the temp files on it but keeps getting this message. His laptop has two drives, 4 GB's each. I can get more information if this isn't enough. If I do need more, let me know and I'll write it down and ask him. Thanks in advance. jcritchie
