Good morning we are with a customer on Windy Arbour at Kenilworth in Warwickshire, we are here because the customer has reported that their computer is running very slowly, its found that the phone line has a noise quality issue which will effect the internet connection quality and will cause our intermittent internet problem, we investigate further and find that we also have a second issue slowing down the computer, that is the computer has 2 antivirus programs installed and they are conflicting with each other, after removing one and editing the registry, and checking all up to date this computer was working at a good speed again.
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.
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.
Next today we are with Lighthorne Lamb at Lighthorne in Warwickshire, the customer is having problems with the internet at this location, this is traced to a Faulty BT Router which is reset for now but is quite old and will need replacing in the near future.
This afternoon we on Ferndale Drive at Kenilworth in Warwickshire, we are here to do some maintenance on an old Desktop Computer running Windows XP and a Netbook PC connected to a BT Infinity Wireless Router.
On the Desktop Computer we updated the antivirus to a current Version , reinstalled the wireless Adaptor and checked the startup files and Edited the Registry.
Its worth noting that on installations of BT Infinity that I come across with the Router sat on top of the Openreach Modem seem to generate a lot more heat and appear to get speed issues so I would recommend that the modem is wall mounted to combat this or at least separate on the area that they are situated in.
