Broadband protection services

Posted on Monday, March 24th 2008 3:29 pm by menj in Internet

Getting broadband services is a popular thing to do these days as it is catching on like wildfire in many parts of the world. No doubt that the information age is gaining a following among both business and home consumers who would need an internet connection as part of their daily lives. In the UK especially, there are many broadband companies which have been set up to cater to the needs of UK residents. Therefore it is important to subscribe to an insurance protection plan in order to cover that expensive broadband equipment. American Home Shield for example provides protection for your home systems and appliances against breakdowns from normal wear and tear. No longer you have to worry about whether your broadband service will be interrupted, as this plan is guaranteed to restore your connection with no further issues.

      Hi there! I own a Dell PC with Windows Vista. I’ve had Windows Vista for years on end now, equipped with AVG virus protection. We have the free 8.5 version. I know close to nothing about virus protection, but lately, there have been so many pop-ups on our AT&T web service, and AVG has continously warned us about multiple web threats (which I can’t explain, because my family operated off of MSN broadband for years, and had no virus problems). AVG has also prompted us to update to version 9.0 for quite some time, along with the multiple virus threat prompts. Now that I have pressed the update and scan functions, AVG isn’t throwing up at any red flags at all, and I’m able to use the web freely! Is the computer REALLY infected, or was the ‘threat’ flag meant to just push us towards an update? And in addition to that, Windows hasn’t given us ANY warning messages about needing to shut down because of problems. What’s going on? Please help!

      My Norton is saying to night that BT Yahoo broadband has cancelled my service, I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this. I think it might be a temporay error.

      Hi lately i have been facing various issues with my Laptop which has made my life hell and has caused me lot of frustration and misery the problems which i am facing are stated below.

      1) Links are getting redirected to randomly redirecting to a directdr.com website and also another phony site which shows a scan in progress and
      shows that my comp is infected by virus and trojans prompting me to download a cure.

      2) Everytime i get online “Generic Host Process for Win32 Services error” pops up
      a) Disconnects my broadband connection and i have to restart my laptop to connect to my broadband again.
      b) Display changes to windows classic and switches back.
      c) Audio gets disabled and works only after i restart.

      3) I also encounter “Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close” error message.
      4) System restore does not store any of the restore points even after i manualy create new restore points.
      5) My ESET antivirus had to be uninstalled as real time protection was not happening and it didnt help even after i repaired the antivirus.

      I am requesting help as i am in dire need of it if you are capable thn do help me clean my laptop.

      I want software that can return any virus straight back to the originator, better still, have the ISP identifyed. I would like to see a Web-site naming names of the individuals who “Hack”, distribute, buy or sell, Virus software. Backing up precious work is fine, but will not protect against all viruses. “Identity Theft” is in it,s infancy, it will get worse before it gets better, if at all. It,s all very well & good the major ISP,s telling us how wonderful their broadband service is, but there,s no protection, and as for Microsoft, you gave us “Vista”, now give us software we really need.

      Hi
      I need to buy a Laptop/Notebook (Any difference?) today. I wil be using it for my Personal Privacy and Protection Consulting Business, working via online webcam or Skype conferencing.
      My needs are two maybe three fold: I will be living in hotels thruout Florida for the next 4-5 months (I enjoy golf!) untill the warm weather returns here in New York.
      I’ll be using the hotel’s Wi-Fi or in room jack to run my business.
      (I may just get Sprints Wireless Broadband service. Anyone know about it?).
      Second: I also do buying and selling on the internet (Liquidation to retail). For this work I can often times have 10-15 browser windows open, in addition to many programs running in the background.
      What should I look for in the purchase of the Laptop (Never owned one before.)?
      It seems they get more expensive the higher the “T” number is (T-2050 etc.).
      I’d like to stay under $1500.00 but would be thrilled to know a $700
      model would do the trick.
      Thanks
      John

      I want a machine that can be able to SERIOUSLY multi-task.I want to be able to download/stream a movie,play good games(nothing too serious though),chat online with multiple people,download music and have multiple tabs open on the internet,all at the same time.I want it to be lightweight,powerful and have a dvd drive.I use a sprint broadband card,and sometimes use wi-fi and wi-lan.

Honestly,I am not sure what I am doing when I am making a PC.I just want to know if this will suit my needs and also,is it a good PC for the price? I specifically wanted the ram and memory to be high.I like it that way lol.Though I want to know if all this is good.Any advice is helpful.Thank you in advance,God bless! 🙂

      Thank you,bye 🙂
      I would like to say that I am not interested in a Mac because though I love their look and “guts” the problem is that the OS is inconvenient for the applications and things I MUST have.Meaning I can not download certain applications I need with their OS.

      A friend recently installed a McAfee Total Protection software product & accepted all the options. When she then tried to access the internet following this she was unable to (using BT Broadband). I have previously found that McAfee Firewall can be a bit of a death trap and generally ditch it & just use the Win XP Firewall. HOWEVER – she uninstalled & reinstalled McAfee & since then the whole PC has died – GUIs not displaying (not just McA), programs stalling & never coming back…
      We got a semblance of order and she can now reach the internet BUT – she has no AV (McAfee will neither install nor uninstall) and the Win Firewall does NOT show up in the Security Centre – SO – does anyone know if I can find the Win Firewall as an executable anywhere? Happy to mess in registry, Services etc. but not familiar with this precise item!
      Hope you can help!!

      So, I need to run a small buisness, I’m an animator with MMFP8, I have 100’s of sprite sheets that take up room, a few pictures, music, a few games, and other downloads… So, anfter a bunch of research, I’ve decided to have a budget of $800, however, after going to Dell.com and picking out stuff… Ive come to about $1,200… I don’t wanna spend that much, but hey… gotta do it… So, is this a good Computer?

      I rang the customer services and tried to ask them what their policy is on illegal downloads (out of curiosity, of course) but unfortunately she was foreign and didn’t understand what I was asking. I am with Tiscali, and I am wondering do they work with copyright protection agencies/record labels by giving them customer IP addresses of the main offenders? The woman on the phone recommended this “Super Secure Boost” (http://broadband.talktalk.co.u.....e-security) although I highly doubt we were on quite the same wavelength…

      This computer is for my 9 year old son who needs it for school. I thought it would be nice to get him a “Cheap” notebook for $9,574. He wanted a VooDoo but I don’t have 20K + on hand. Is this a good entry level notebook?

      I want to become healthier and I have really big thighs and a tummy. Is there any tips/workout/advice that will help me. Anything from types of exercises to a healthy diet, is there any advice/tips?

      Am going to Laiya, San Juan, Batangas, and I need to check my mail every now and then. Any idea which mobile broadband service will actually work there? (Once, on a trip to Bataan, my Sun Broadband died even before we hit NLEX.) Please let me know. Thanks.

      I just got wirless broadband through Verizon. I live in an area that is well within their broadband coverage. It has been working great and then suddenly slowed to a crawl. Has anyone else experienced that Verizon is uneven day to day in its broadband service?

      I want to add a 2nd laptop to my broadband wirelessly, I have the network name and password and I know I have to put these in to make it work, but have no idea how to do that.

      Also the 2nd laptop does not have a service provider downloaded onto it, just internet explorer will this be ok?

      Thanks.

      I am wanting to get internet through AT&T and it says I need a DSL Modem and the Wireless Gateway. I know I need a modem, but not sure what the gateway is, and if I need it. I want to shop around for prices to compare to their equip, but not sure what all I really need.

      During the dial-up age, it was the rule of the roost. But then it cratered really fast in the early 2000s. What happened?

      Any advice is good. Financial, items worth getting, what delivery is like, things people never tell you about babies or birth. Anything.
