For the next job today we are in Stoneleigh to maintain a computer for a customer, the main issue is checking the Antivirus on the PC and its reported to be running slow.
Update: The main thing effecting the speed of this Dell Studio laptop was the web control software supplied that was hogging resources so we removed this and other programs by editing the registry.
We also gave the customer some tuition on an Apple Macbook Pro.
This afternoon we are working at the Wood House Hotel on the Leamington Road between Weston under Wetherley and Princethorpe, We are here to get a computer running on their network, Seems there are 2 issues here one was the network connector on the wireless router had not locked in correctly, and the other was that the tcpip stack had been corrupted on the computer so just needed resetting.
Next today we are in Stareton to clean a virus off a customers laptop computer, The viruses here was a root kit virus this is a virus that attaches and hides it’s self in the windows system files and a Trojan virus that Hijacks the Browser.
We are now with a customer in Stoneleigh to look at an issue with broadband, The issue here is no connection to the exchange, so we test with a known working modem and this is the same we then went to the master socket and tested and all was ok.
Update: The fault is traced to an internet wiring fault on the phone line.
