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.)

Hi, this is my first post.

I was wondering if there is any way that Outlook Today 2003 can be configured to show more than 7 days worth of appointments. Do any smart people out there know how to make this happen?

Thanks in advance,

Darren.
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 Today - calendar more than 7 days

Would you accept a reply from a [email protected], as opposed to a person who is just smart in general?

I summarised your message and dropped that into google. First link I found was this:

http://www.informit.com/articles/article.asp?p=101747&rl=1

While I worked with 2003 at my previous employers company, I still use 2002, simply because it's way less 'heavy' and way more 'logical'.

Click the "View" menu in Outlook. Directly on this menu, you should have the ability to select "Month". If not, its because of the current view 'setting' you are on. Try then changing the "Current View" setting (also found under the View menu), and see if your month view appears. There are a few ways to look at the same data in 2003, and the pictures on the website I gave you depict the different ways to change these views.

Heres an excerpt:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your Calendar folders offer the most view options. The Day/Week/Month and Day/Week/Month View with AutoPreview views are planner-style calendars, whereas the remaining views (Active Appointments, Events, Annual Events, Recurring Appointments, and By Category) use a table format. Use By Category to view all of your calendar items on one screen. You can drag items not assigned to categories to add them to a category.

The Day/Week/Month views use the Day Planner ... Read more

Hello!

Since tuesday, when I got a virus(Rogue or rouge/security tool virus), it's been much slower. I removed the virus through tips from google, with help from taskmanager - malwarebytes and NOD 32 and hijackthis. I've been googling like a madman to solve the problem, without getting rid of this. I do not have a HP pc which I found out has a typical 50% cpu usage problem. I have my own selfbuilt PC which I've had for 1,5 years, and this has never happened before.

I've used CCleaner + the other programs I already told you about.

Now to the problems.

Taskmanager does not work anymore, it shows up as the cmdwindow(which disappears after like 1 second), after this nothing happens. I tried Start->Run->cmd->taskmgr and got the message:
"The program is too big for the memory(translated from norwegian)
C:\docume~1\kjeffiE(my nick)>

Because of this, I downloaded process explorer and it looks like SVChost is using 50% of my CPU.

Here's a screenshot from process explorer with the svchost highlighted + services it's running:

http://bildr.no/view/607594

I'm DESPERATE for help, it's getting really annoying how slow the pc is at the moment. I'll do what you'll ask me to do, please .

Thanks!
 

Answer:Sluggish PC last few days, CPU at 40-60%(constant 50% today), desperate.

When items are loaned out we want them returned in 30 working days (approximately 6 weeks I'm not going to bother trying to calculate holidays) but to only come back on a week day Monday through Friday.

Field Name ReturnDate_Fld this needs to be calculated as 30 working days from the current date

or should I not worry about the extra effort and use the approximate by adding 42 to the BorrowDate_Fld (plus 42 days = 6 weeks)

Should I worry about this in a form or only set it as field in the report/query?

So I got this T420s from the clearance sale.Arrived on 14th, March and on 15th March the touchpad started acting up.I restored the system to factory setting since there was not much data anyways. Thought that software updates might have messed it up. But no. It was acting up the same way from the word go. It is like as if Right click button of the touchpad is always pushed down. Though on surface it looks normal. They have arranged a pickup of the laptop. There is no loaner scheme in effect right now in Australia it seems. Kind of sad. Never expected this flimisiness from a T series Thinkpad. Infact the Optical Disk drive on the right hand side of laptop, that also has quite a bit of free play. Hoping that they fix the laptop as soon as possible and return it.I will keep forum member informed. Is this touchpad issue a common thing? Since as soon as they heard it they arranged for a pickup. No troubleshooting.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:T420s Touchpad fails within 2 days of purchase. EDIT: Today it is working ! And failed again. Sad

Sorry for back to back posts.Just out of curosity booted it again and it is working as of now. Loose wiring?I will put it to some regular heavy duty work I do as part of  my project and update the thread again after few hours.Planning to put Adobe Reader 10, Firefox, VMWare, Remove Norton and activate Microsoft Security Essentials and Update Java.If it works out I might call off the pickup. I really need this machine for my project work.

Hello,
for a week now I have BSOD's. Started when I was playing Skyrim, first it kicked me out to the desktop then right away got the BSOD with an error 124. Windows wouldn't start anymore properly (froze at the logo and restarted itself). I then cleaned the chassis fans, the cpu fan and put new heatsink paste, thought maybe cause of the heat. All started normally again.
Just every day when I turned on the PC it wouldn't go further than the Bios start screen and couldn't even get into the Bios. I did a Bios reset and all worked fine. When the PC is once on all works well..can restart too.. . temperatures are good etc. Just in the morning the first startup... So I did every day a bios reset the last days to get it going and still trying to find out what causes the problems. Changed today the cmos battery..
Now I got this error code while trying to do a system recovery. Can anybody help me? I know my PC isn't the newest but worked so far fine.

Hi,

I am requesting help again. I am taking a bit of a different approach. While it will be declined, I will pay for the fix from an established member, if not declined you got it.

Fresh install of Windows 10 which upgraded me to build 1709 (11/2/2017).
5-8 months ago problems with disk usage spiking to 100%. Resources being "Hijacked"/stolen or lost(task manager). This has been an issue with many since Win 8. I've tried EVERY recommended fix. 3 people on MSTECHNET/MS Community said this spiking to 100% resource usage could be the cause of the other errors. Is there an out of the box fix?

Picture is less than .1% of the errors. Image is just there as "proof of problem" not really for diagnostics in my mind. Also keep in mind event viewer was slammed with absurd amounts of errors prior to this fresh install (Weeks/Months ago). And the first week after the install (5-8ish months ago). This is a home PC, nothing special.

Sometimes when I boot the W520, the access connections tray icong thing is greyed out, sometimes its brightly coloured and shows the current connection. E.g. at home I ahve a wired connection called home, whith my home printer set as default.At work I ahve a wired connection with a different printer (and a different IP range). The days when its greyed out, if I lauch the access connections dialogue (which take an ridiculously long time - what is it doing?), there are no locations profiles, even though I have about 20. On the days when its working, I see a whole load of location profiles, and It choses the right printer and shows the right location profile name in the tray icon. Its about 50%/50%, but seems to be getting worse. sleeping and waking dont affect it - it stays dead or alive. Occasionally it crashes (as do all the lenovo apps) Anyone else had this? Any work arounds? I have done a lenovo update, and its at version 5.85. Simon.

thanks
 

Answer:Extending Evaluation Period for 120 days.. only extends for 3 days?

If you have a valid copy of windows 7 with a legit COA sticker and can activate it without problems i dont see any need to even have an evaluation period.If your copy of windows 7 isnt valid and the COA sticker isnt anygood id suggest you buy a proper copy of windows 7 with a legit COA sticker and go from there.Because eventually it wont work anymore and you will be locked out of the computer.

Answer:Solved: Access Date Today or after today

If this is the same field as the first post then you will be stuck with the default value of Now() or Date().
If it is a different field then in the validation property use >=Date().
Date() is used when you do not need to store the "Time" as well as the date, Now() stores the Date and the Time.

As I understand it, with the new anniversary update after 10 days one will get disk space back relating to Windows.old being deleted automatically (if PC is left idle for a while).

i also believe that if a PC upgrades to Windows 10 then the new anniversary update wouldn't be offered until 30 days have elapsed. However with the aforementioned change to 10 days for rolling back the anniversary update I wonder if that now also rings true for previous 10586/TH2 build? We got a new mini PC approx 10 days ago, Windows 10 was pre installed but it was a really old build, pre 10586/TH2. I checked for updates and it immediately set about updating to last novembers 10586. However I am now confused as to whether I need to wait 10 days or 30 days for Windows update to offer it the new Anniversary update. I am totally happy to wait for Windows update to do its thing rather than use MCT etc, just curious about the timescales involved given MS has changed from 30 to 10 on the latest version

cheers, Wayne

Question: No IP Renewal...

Here's an interesting problem.

Last couple of days, I fought with, and won, against one of those particularly fun viruses that can outthink just about any automated AV program, on my mother's XP system. Rooted it out, got its fake DLL out of the way, bam, done.

Well, it seems to have lashed out just before dying, mucking with my networking: my IP address won't renew for anything.

Upon some further troubleshooting, I know what's wrong, but I don't know how to fix it- a test with IPCONFIG and here's the results:

ipconfig /release

IP address 0.0.0.0
Subnet: 0.0.0.0
No default gate.

ipconfig /renew

Nothing happens.

Apparently, when I got rid of the virus, it gutted the portion of the controls that renews the IP, and here's the kicker- my mother purchased a Compaq without a recovery disk, so I can't just do an offline repair- does anybody know which files I can manually fix/replace to put this back in order? I'm hoping it's not wininet.dll that's been shot, as that particular file seems to be so version-sensitive...

EDIT: I should point out that this is critical, because I can't manually configure an IP, since this box is wired straight to a cable modem via LAN.

Hi,

I just wanna say, I saw my license for XXclone Pro....it was a year, re two computers--- had expired. Start button greyed out and typically detailed explanation window from the geniuses at Pixie Labs across the pond.

I would not wanna live without this singular software. I first considered just getting the free version which is amazing, but without the option to do incremental backups. so I keyed in all my codes on their site and they said if I gave eleven dollars, I wold be good to go for another year.

I think original license was $40. But not positive.

For me, loosing this option was not an option....the incremental updates.....so I gave them the 11 and they do this coplex emailing, cutting and pasting stuff into fields.....it's an interesting game, really....and now Ihave my full optons back for very lttle money.

I could not recommend XX more....and if someone can afford the pro beyond the trial period, for the above reasons I recommend that.

Otherwise, every time you update your second drive....you must do a whole new clone from stratch.

My Norton Internet security is due for renewal and it is dearer this year. For my Renewal they are asking £40.00 and last year it was only £20.00.
I guess what i am hoping for is some advice on which Anti Virus i should use for my p.c from experienced guys. I don't have a problem with paying for such protection but i have heard that Norton isnt as good as others that are available. Also i have heard that there are some free Anti Virus programs available? I use Windows XP (if that makes a difference) and i know that my Acer Laptops Recovery program conflicts with some Norton software like Norton Ghost & Norton Go Back.

Answer:Domain name renewal

you can't move a domain name within 60 days of its registration. I'm not quite clear about your situation, you say "I have a domain" and then you say that the registration has expired and is pending renewal - why did you allow the registration to expire in the first place? If the renewal is still in the pending phase you should pay for the renewal immediately.Then you'll be able to do the transfer to your new host.

I have an hp laptop pavillion dv4000 with wireless. My wireless used to work fine and gain access to access points without any problems. Then I started messing around with my laptop in order to create a wireless access point from my laptop. This was a success. I was able to create a LAN system from my laptops where other computers connected to and played games. Now the problem is I cannot change it back. I have reverted all the settings for my laptop and the problem still persists. I have narrowed the problem to the following:
"The ip address cannot be renewed".
This is what happens when i set the settings of my tcp/ip to automatically obtain ip address. I have tried putting in other ip's (such as 192.168.0.55, 192.168.0.1) but all I can do is connect superficially... I cannot access the internet or use the connection for any of my problems. There was a similar thread to this about using wires to connect pc's. Please Help

But it might be that for this purpose the Wireless card is now configured to Ad-Hoc Mode, and it has to be changed back to Infrastructure Mode.

I thought I'd switched everything over, but apparently not. I just got a warning message yesterday fron Netnation, and today a message saying that this domain name has expired and been put on hold.

But I don't know how to renew it, because I closed my netnation account, and can't get back in there.

What do I do?
 

Answer:Web page renewal

Tad, you must purchase the domain name again via your new hosts, Hostgator.
Netnation saying that they have put renewal on hold, is a bit of sales gimmickry I think - as soon as a domain name registration expires, it is up for grabs by anyone who wants it. First come first served ...

Question: NIS 2005 renewal?

sigh> here's my problem....I bought NIS 2005 for my old computer and it worked fine for quite a while. Then it seemed that whenever this program loaded on start up it would crash my pc.Anyhow, I now have a new pc which came with NIS 2005 already installed, but is due for renewal on 18th nov. This annoyed me intially as my other was good until june 06, but as I do not know if you can uninstall norton if it is already preinstalled on your pc, I have left it for now. I have just checked out how much it is to renew, (£28!!)which I begrudge paying, when I have the same thing here on disc that I paid £50 for, but don't know if it's that that knackered my old machine?Do I renew?Do I uninstall built in version and install my own copy?Do I try something completely different?!Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Question: Emsisoft Renewal

My Emsisoft Anti-Malware license is coming up for renewal in two weeks, and I do plan to renew it for another year but I'm not sure if I should upgrade to Emsisoft Internet Security. I've done a trial of EIS and like it a lot more, but since I'm not the most knowledgeable person about certain alerts, it concerns me. If I get a firewall alert, about said process wants to receive incoming information from a port, I don't know whether to allow or deny it. In addition to that, it not displaying whether the file is verified even if it is a valid Windows process doesn't help much either. I've also heard of continuous problems with EIS over on their support forums. I need some insight on how I can make a better decision, whether I should just stick with EAM over EIS, but I would feel safer with EIS's firewall instead of Windows Firewall.

Just a simple question folks. I need to renew my antivirus and firewall software and can't seem to get a question answered from the Symantec website. My 2002 software subscription is no longer available to be renewed. Therefore I need to buy either the 2006 antivirus or the 2006 internet security with Ghost 10. The internet security has a firewall included so I'm a little confused as to what to do with my old one. Do I just purchase the internet security and install it. Or do I have to remove my old firewall first.Cheers folks, I hope I've made things clearer than they are in my head

Answer:Symantec renewal help

If you download a replacement .exe installation file from the internet, first disconnect from the net, uninstall the incumbent AV, then run the installation file to install the replacement. Reconnect to the internet, update the signature files and run a full scan.Have a look around the Symantec site for uninstallers as Norton sometimes has a scrappy uninstall that leaves residue scattered about the system.As to the "Need to buy" if you're a non profit home user, you may prefer to buy, but there are a raft of free alternatives click here used by forum members that will do the job so you don't "need" to spend anything .If you're a business user then unfortunately you don't qualify for the free versions.

My KIS 2009 is due for renewal in 13 days. But, when I clicked on the renewal button, and was taken to the Kaspersky website, the renewal fee was £27.99 for one user, one year.

Looking on Amazon, I saw that their prices were much cheaper, but, I am totally confused by the different packages/prices and don't want to buy the "wrong" one, so if anyone could clarify please, I'd really appreciate it.

Amazon is offering a 3-user renewal subscription for £16.80 (but, could I use this, when I currently have only a single-user subscription?) HERE

Also listed, are KIS 2009 1-Desktop, 1 yr renewal £14.99

You can take control of his computer from your computer to save you a journey and may come in handy if he has any further problems.

I have paid online to renew my anti virus with mcafee but i keep getting messages saying my computer has not a java script. I have down loaded java in hoping now i can have the anti virus down loaded

Answer:My computer can not down load my new renewal

Did you go to Java.com and select the proper java for your system (32bit or 64bit)? Are you using the built in update feature or are you trying this through a web browser? Use the built in update, it should not need java for this.Run Malwarebytes (free download at malwarebytes.com) to make sure you do not have an infection that slipped past McAfee and is preventing it from updating.Consider using Avast antivirus program instead of McAfee, choose free version (if you register it remains free, if not then it is a trial only). Avast is a better antivirus program than McAfee or Norton and uses system resources more intelligently so it will not slow you down either.Keep Malwarebytes available on your desktop either way because it is a good tool to occasionally scan with if you suspect a problem, or maybe monthly just to be sure. Malwarebytes will often pick up on what antivirus programs miss. it is a good one to keep and occasionally update it.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

My question is, is there another way to turn it off it doesn't tell you, or should I just get my money back? I hate how it says you have complete control over whether you want it on, and I have to jump though hoops to make sure it's not on.

Ive been living at a relatives house for a while and ive been using the wifi from their router not too far away, maybe like 10-20 feet away through a couple walls, so signal isnt amazing, but not horrible usually, but this is just temporary. Anyways, my cousin had configured their router for them, i believe it is a Cisco router, not sure what model though, their ISP is Time Warner Cable. It seems like everyday i get disconnected from the wifi signal whether i am on my iPod Touch or Xbox 360. My hardwired pc is fine though, just slow internet, but that is to be expected i guess (router, isp speed, devices connected and using bandwidth, etc.) Anyways, could this be because of DHCP Lease renewing? At my house before, i had AT&T U-Verse and the technician set up everything, i never messed with the gateway settings or anything they gave me, i had no need to... It was a default ATT Uverse gateway (modem/router/switch combo). I dont know much about DHCP renewal, but i believe the tech from ATT set the gateway to never expire or renew, and i believe my cousin set up this router to renew DHCP leases every whenever. Could this be the reason i get disconnected on WiFi devices every so often? I have problems with it everyday here, as where before with my old untouched-by-me internet was totally fine, so this leads to this suspicion.

Please help. Thanks!
 

Answer:DHCP Lease Renewal help?

Usually your ISP controls your Internet connection's lease time and it's typically not adjustable. It's 48 hours here with Time Warner. It's also not something you typically have to worry about, as it's all handled automatically by the router.

You can however control the lease time of the router's built in DHCP server in some router firmware. This is the DHCP server that is used by your local devices, if you have that setup.

It sounds like you might need to do more in-depth troubleshooting to me. You can start by checking the router's status when you experience these problems, by using it's GUI.

Having had auto-renew issues in the past with BitDefender I won't make the purchase if I can't opt out.

I work with a sector of a much larger organizational network that is dedicated to providing email and internet service, etc. for a group of 100+ users in a retirement community. We are hardwired to a Microsoft 2003 Server that is maintained by a contract service with which we interact regularly. For some time we have had a problem in losing connection to the email server with a message to would-be users that the server cannot be found. If I enter ipconfig /flushdns and then ipconfig /renew, the connection is immediately restored and email service is provided in a normal fashion. Then I come back the next morning and I have to renew the dns all over again. There are four computers on our sub-network, operating Windows XP that have this same problem. The computers are never turned off so do not get restarted except on an occasional basis. I have tried restarting deliberately to see if that would renew the dns connection at that time, but that has not worked. The IP address of the computers are set automatically, so I have tried assigning fixed IP addresses for the computers and for the DNS servers and gateway, but that has not helped. Our contracting network consultants have not been able to come up with any solution. Do we have any suggestions among our Tech Support gurus?

Appreciate your thoughts. Thanx.
 

Answer:dhcp lease renewal

Is the DHCP service actually running on the server? If so what lease duration is set on for the DHCP scope?

Renewing after 50% of the lease time is standard in Windows, and the way to extend the interval is by increasing the duration of the lease.

An IP address starting 169.x.x.x is what you get when the client times out after looking for a DHCP server that isn't responding to network requests. That's why I ask whether the DHCP server (or the service) has crashed. Even if the server itself hasn't gone down it would be worth stopping and re-starting the DHCP service.

the last error maybe caused if a computer either has the same NetBIOS name or IP address on the same netwrok segment. Check how your scope is configured, and that you have enough addresses for the number of clients accessing the server and requesting IPs.

I have a domain that is with network solutions and want to move it over to another registrar. The domain has expired and says its pending renewal.How long will it before I can register it at another domain?

Answer:Domain pending renewal

I would ask at the new registars site (they must have a contact button), if they don't answer in a timely fashion consider going with someone else. But, before you email them, do check to see if they have answered this before, either on their forum or an FAQ section.Also, try asking on this sites webdesign forum.Sorry couldn't be of real help.

Hey guys,

Just a quick question:

I have an MN-700 Microsoft Router. It works perfectly, except for one flaw. It won't renew the IP addresses for any devices connected to it wirelessly. I have two Inspiron 1525s, and two Xbox 360s connected to it. I have had to set all of their IP addresses manually, because the router will not hand them out automatically. On the laptops, if put to "Set IP Address Automatically", the laptop merely states "IP Address Invalid" and shows 0.0.0.0 for every parameter. Any help would awsome.

Since purchasing my computer a year ago I have used Webroot Spysweeper and Windows Live One Care and they are both ready to expire. My financial situation has changed and I really do not want to spend $100.00 on renewing these programs- do I need them or could I use something free out there? I have a wireless router and am the only one using my computer. Thanks!!!

Hello,

I recently installed and hooked up the Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router and it was working very well. I decided to upgrade the firmware and that is when I got into a problem.

After a day or two the router still gave a connection but didn't route the internet connection.

I narrowed the problem down to the Group Key Renewal. After the time specified expires the router stops routing the internet. I disconnect from the internal settings and reconnect(to the internet, not router) and nothing happens. I have to choose the "restore factory defaults" and reconfigure the whole thing.

Does anyone know the solution to this? It is becoming very tedious reconfiguring all the time.

Thank you in advance.

I've got Norton Antivirus 2003 edition which I resubscribed to this time last year - paying via their website and as far as I recall very simply. This year I've had notificationthat by subscription is due but I am finding it impossible to load their web page. The home pages load up fine but as soon as I go to their Store page all i get are white boxes. I've tried their help pages which suggest you go in via Liveupdate. This brings me to renewal request and asks for subscription key which I haven't got presumeably because I havn't paid. Talk about Catch 22!. Anyone else had this problem?Colfox

Hi

I've got a client who uses E-Trust on all their servers and PCs. We've recently taken over this client, and I'm trying to prepare them for forthcoming expenses by making a list of renewal costs and dates.

BUT.

I can't find ANYWHERE on this E-Trust software that will tell me when the licence is due to expire. I can see how to add a new licence code, but there doesn't seem to be any indication of when I'll need to do that.

Anybody know something I don't?

I have Norton S/W & I/S 2005 edition. I have been repeatedly reminded in the last week about renewing my subscription as the current term runs out on the 10th October.The pop up window did give me the choice of renewing now or later so being still a month away I chose later. Yesterday I received a Live Update available but when trying to download/install I was unable to until I had renewed my subscription. This I went ahead with just for a quiet pop up reminder free life if nothing else.I then had the choice of a normal renewal or a better value NIS with Anti-Spyware edition. I chose the latter & after long drawn out installation I was then informed that my year of free updates begins now.The question being what happened to my month left on my previous subscription?????Any other views on this?regards,J

Answer:NORTON RENEWAL SUBSCRIPTION RIP OFF?

A good question. I had a very similar thing happen and I wrote to them and they were generous enough to allow me quite a lot of free time to make up for the past problem. So I suggest you E.mail. Their HELP is absolutely useless but if you can get a good technical help e.mail on a COntact Us to them they seem to me to be very helpful.

My Norton AV runs out in a few days, so I paid for a renewal to my present account. So far they have sent me two key Nos to enter, but neither of them worked, so now I'm back in the hands of support.Has anyone else had problems renewing and updating their account with Norton?I must admit I'm still using the Systemworks 2002 version which I've had for over three years, but its been OK so far.

Ask for a refund and use (free) Avast or AVG instead

The McAffee virus program that was installed on my computer,an HP,running Windows ME,has expired.The notice pops up every time I start up the computer.I have recently switched to cable with its own virus protection ,plus I have our two computers wireless networked,using Netgear products.The router has a built in firewall which I understand is added protection.So my question is,do you think I need to renew my McAffee virus program. Thanks to all of you who take your time to offer your expertise to people like me.

Answer:McAffe virus renewal?

Curtgoode,
Personally, if it were me. yes. At the very least I would renew Mcafee. When My Mcafee on this HP expired, I purchased Norton System Works for next to nothing over the internet. I am also on cable now, but I still run my Norton (fully updated) and Zonealarm Pro. Maybe it's overkill...maybe not. But it gives me some peace of mind.
I've got a friend in college on a T1 connection, behind their firewall and his own Norton. He still managed to get a virus a while back. The way viruses and worms change nowadays, we can probably never be too safe.

A friend bought a new lap top together with Norton package in April this year, she is now being asked to renew subscription by the 15/9/06 as her licence expires, PC World wont help & suggests she telephones Nortons premium rate help line, any ideas please?

Answer:Norton security subscription renewal ?

Pre-installed Norton is often only valid for a short period, and that is probably measured from the date of installation rather than the date of purchase. My advice is to uninstall Norton and install Avast antivirus (free) click here or AVG antivirus (also free) click here, and ZoneAlarm firewall (free) click here

I have 2 APs with the same ssid (different channels). Will switching between them when roaming cause the ip address to be renewed? They are all on the same network and same dns and dhcp server. How seamless would the transition between the APs be? Thanks.
 

Answer:multiple APs with same SSID. will roaming cause IP renewal?

Should be fine, just set the AP's on different channels, and as long as they are on the same DHCP server it will be fine since the lease will still be active.

Need some advice. My NIS is about to expire and Norton wants $60 to renew. I can buy it brand new from Amazon for $35 Shipped. Obviously I am going to buy it from Amazon. So do I wait till it expires and run the new disk (installer) or do I remove (using Norton removal tool) and reinstall it.

Or should I just use (free) Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials?

Thanks

Answer:Norton Internet Security renewal?

What version of Norton Internet Security do you have installed? If it is 2011, you will just need to enter the new key into your current installation (best to wait until the day before expiration).

I use Norton 360 (3 x licenses) and the subscription runs out soon, so I follow the link to the Norton site and it offers me a downloadable 1-year update for £64.99. Wow! thinks me, that's a lot. Then I see it in Norton's online shop and it's only £59.99 (still a download). Then I look in the special offers section and it's £54.99. So I browse around and find it for £52.98 at CClonline (V4.0 boxed, inc VAT & Del and it's not OEM). What gives? It leaves a bad taste in the mouth to realise that returning customers are going to be stiffed like this instead of receiving some reward for customer loyalty.

Answer:Norton subscription renewal - shop around instead

There doesn't appear to be any reward for Customer loyalty these days - a firm I had dealings with recently wouldn't "price match" after being with them for some considerable time - approx £3 in difference - so they LOST my business. I don't remain "loyal" anymore, I go where I can get the best deal. It is THEIR loss not mine !

Hi. I've been using the UK version of Quicken 2004 for 10 years and love it. Now when I open the software a message comes up saying my licence will expire in September and I need to renew my licence. If I do nothing with Quicken simply stop working to do I have to purchase another installation key? And if so is that still possible given Quicken 2004 is no longer supported in the UK?

Answer:Quicken 2004 renewal of licence

The other option is to go for one of the free options available. but whether you will be able to transfer your database from Quicken I have no idea.

I've just paid £20 to renew my Norton 'live update' on my computer(XP home sp2). The first problem was my renewal date didn't change, until I uninstalled, then re-installed Norton. This rectifeid my updated subscription, but the security centre gives me a warning now that says my Virus Checker is not activated. I,ve checked Norton, done a complete scan etc, but xp's security centre still tells me no virus checker enabled. Any ideas please!

Answer:Norton subscription renewal not detected

I use the retail box version, where in the manual activation refers to the product key number being activated.
