    SOLVED Viruses through Firefox?

    There are stories of some of the FF add-ons being developed as a trojan portal but I can't say this is what's happening with you. Question, did this bug give you nonsense about your Windows firewall being offline? -JazMac

    Normal if you have the screen saver set to 1 minute and that upon waking go to the log in screen. This looks like what is happening. Right click the desktop and click Personalize.

    SOLVED Can/Can't connect

    First of all, nice lappy. Can I be your grandson too? Anyway, are you sure the wireless button has the wireless card enabled? There should be an indicator of some kind to show it is on. Also, what OS are we talking about? -JazMac

    AUTOMATIC LOGIN sometimes fails

    You get rid of Norton. Get something like Avast to manage viruses and spyware. But definately remove Norton. If you don't want to get rid of Norton, can you tell if this issue coinsides with when Norton is scheduled to update signatures and or the engine itself? MIght be a clue. -JazMac

    Help, Help, Help with a unwanted pop up.

    Did you install a flash screen saver creator? Sounds like you may have. Try uninstalling that thing. In fact, get a copy of YourUninstaller 2010 and allow it to uninstall it. Just run it as a demo if you don't want to purchase it. -Jazmac

    SOLVED switch from 64-bit to 32-bit

    My question is why would you want to? You are not required to only purchase 64 bit programs if that what you were thinking. It will run 32bit apps just fine. -Jazmac

    Get a legal download of Win7 64bit

    Unless there was an extension I'm aware of, the 30 dollar student discount for Windows 7 Home premium ended in the US, Jan 5th of this year. And Ian is right about the Professional version for students. I was able to get the 30 dollar discount. On the question, the key will work on either...

    Sorry, I read too quickly. Update the keyboard in the same way I said to update the usb ports. Let me know if that clears it up. BTW, have you installed something recently? Are you running Windows in enhanced mode for handicapped users? -Jazmac
