Tiscali ( Talktalk ) internet trouble after AVG internet security installed at Leamington Spa in Warwickshire

Good morning we are with a customer on Guys Cliffe Road at Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, we are here to help the customer solve an issue with their internet which started after upgrading the antivirus to AVG 2012 Internet Security.

Update: Before we arrived the customer had ran system restore and this had got the internet security in to a bit of a mess, the add remove programs and the AVG removal tool would not work , so we removed all the temp files and application data, ran the Windows Install Cleaner and was then able to attempt a reinstall of the program, once installed the firewall failed and got stuck in a reboot loop, this seemed to be going no where fast so we removed the program and reinstalled the AVG Free which worked first time.

We also realigned the Brother DCP585CW whilst here as the print out appeared to have a blurred shadow in normal printing mode, with adjustment this appeared to be better, with Fine mode looking perfect.

Internet problems at Warwick in Warwickshire

Good morning we are with a customer on the Stratford Road at Warwick in Warwickshire, we are here because the customer is reporting poor wireless signal to their BT Infinity wireless router with their Compaq Laptop Computer.

Update: There was a connection issue with the infinity router and so we rang BT technical support who got the broadband up and running quiet quickly, the weak signal was because the laptop had reattached its self to a neighbours BT Openzone network, After getting the computer working properly on the customers router we found the internet was still slow to respond so we deleted the internet cache and this fixed the issue.

Laptop Computer Repair Warwickshire

Today we have been working around Warwick the first job in Coten End to repair an issue on a laptop computer, The problem being that Word was not loading,

The Second of the day is for solving a Webmail issue on a computer running Windows XP

The Last of the day is for an ongoing ADSL problem the issue here is convincing the broadband operator that the fault is theirs to solve they seem to be giving us more hoops to jump through than usual.

UPDATE the issue in the end was found to be an internal fault on the telephone wiring but the trouble was the line would not increase in speed until 3 days after being added to the test socket unfortunately this is down to  how the ADSL system tries to keep fault lines alive.
