Hi, for samson,
here is the llink, where i come across
Samson, i know that you use Avast older version, so, you would have been safe with data breach by avast.
and i also know that you view avast forum post.
they just hutdown, the website of jumpshot and no one knows , if it is shut down for the outers and not about insiders.

Hi J, You have a good memory, I use Avast V7 and was unaffected by the data breach.

I do go over to the Avast forum sometimes, there are a few really helpful people there. However there is little input from Avast staff and some members can be a bit blind to other Avast users problems. I shall stick with it as long as I get virus definition updates oor my legacy hardware finally dies on me  :sad:

J, from memory ( a bit vague I know) that 15 month offer came with new DELL laptops and was several years ago.

Edit : A quick DDG search turned this up

Bluetooth wasn’t designed to provide high-quality audio; it was designed to deliver voice signals. For that reason, Bluetooth applies compression to music which degrades its fidelity.

Good quality wired headphones/ speakers win everytime in terms of music fidelity for me.

Have a read of this, it may help.

Thanks for helping out there, Samson - it was worth a Kudos point :)

I'm not over this way much, drop in from time to time, happy to help out if it is not too techy  :wink:

After a bit of figuring out, I think I have it working like I want. Time will tell.
Thanks again.

Good to hear, happy to help  :smiley:

You need to create a schedule, hit the button "create schedule", red boxed in attached screenshot.

Everything Else / XP gets a critical update

Heads Up! XP users.

MS has issued a critical update for XP.  KB4500331.

Not available from auto updates but can be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

See here

See this post by Shane regarding reset to Windows defaults, back up current registry first  :wink:,515.msg3589.html#msg3589

Restore using the registry backup that you made before running simple system tweaker.

Shown here in red box, assuming that you made a backup first?

"Backing up is only slightly less important than your heart beat. Do not tweak without it"

J, I can't tell you about your security concerns, I don't know enough about it.

I admire your attention to details, and enthusiasm to resolve problems.

I'm sure a search for the skills and tools you need, will get you where you want to be, sorry I can't give any good pointers. 

If you need to monitor it to know when it happens, then the difference can't be that great.


I can't really see the point of being able to see the stats all of the time or at the drop of a hat - if BB is working fine then there's no need to keep checking them.

You can become obsessed with them.

I agree totally. not sure what J is trying to achieve here. 


I used to have to use Telnet when I was using my own router on ADSL as that was the only way you could see all of the stats on a Billion Bipac 7800N router.

I use it to reduce SNR on my router, can be done with 3rd party firmware for the router, but I prefer to do it this way. Only works for a few old Netgears, if anyon'e interested

J, I've never used KiTTY, so can't help with that...KiTTY forum? I'm not really sure what you are aiming to do either?

It is a telnet prompt. getting the info from your router. PuTTY and KiTTY are telnet clients for Windows.

You can access it from a cmd prompt and entering "telnet (or your router's IP address)

below are 2 command results for "adslctl info --show" and "adslctl info --stats", the second is more useful over time.

You can right click in the telnet window > "select all" and then paste in a txt document, see below, also the command to access the router's stats. I run it manually so can't help with the task schedule side either..... :sad:

The speed sites are full of redirects virus and unwanted popup of advt.

Is this a symptom of the BSNL ad injections on http sites? (Still unresolved by BSNL I see)

Try this secure site speed test

Wishing everyone peace and love.  :cheesy:

Just a phishing email.

I'd say targeting the right group, ie those who open and read spam.

I don't even open my spam folder, let alone open spam emails  :wink:

You need to run the program as an administrator, remove the publisher then restart the program.

Hi, i . want to upgrade my xp laptop to windows 7.

The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

Are you sure that you can get all the drivers you need for your laptop that will support Windows 7?

J, it sounds like BSNL injecting ads on http connections again, as an ISP they have a long history of doing this and continue to do so.

So there'll be no fix other than changing ISPs ?

Pretty much what friends in India have told me, yes.

HTTPS Everywhere may help and or a hosts file/ adblocker to block the redirect locations.

Is this you posting in this thread, rajujayaraman? seems to be going nowhere in terms of a satisfactory response from BSNL.
