This stream auto-updates     

  1. Today
  2. Adobe flash player

    did you get this working? am curious because i thought google chrome automatically blocked flash from working now and needed a manual change to it's settings before it allows flash to work. if memory serves i think they did this to make web sites use html5 instead of flash to play media. personally i use firefox on linux so haven't tested out chrome to check how things now work with it.
  3. Gateway SX2110G - disable on board video

    silly question maybe but after connecting the video card do you move the cable from the onboard video output to the cards video output? usually in my experience the video card is automatically used as first output device now and doesn't need a bios setting to be set first before it works.

  6. Help with Very slow Laptop

    Hi regarding PCMatic/SS I reinstalled it this morning and it is now working okay, the install went a little different to the last time because this time it asked to turn PCMatic/SS off before continuing, that did not happen last time, although at first it seemed to be okay. I have downloaded and installed the DAT files and restarted and it is all still okay, is that something I should do periodically? Regarding the Laptop, it has been getting progressively slower, the internet is slow because I am travelling and using very inadequate wi-fi connections but perhaps the progressive deterioration was my imagination, when you are in a hurry things always seem worse. This morning I disabled all unnecessary background processes, such as visual enhancements, aero, desktop background etc and some services and the Laptop is now flying. Thanks for the excellent support. Regards Daniel

  8. Failed Win 10 update.

    Hi Bullfrog, See if running the update/upgrade from a disk may resolve the issue: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10?OCID=WIP_r_Win10_Body_AddPC Be sure to disable any anti-virus product prior to initiating the procedure to insure that this is not causing the hold up. Y
  9. We are still chasing this one. Development told me that it has been submitted and we are now awaiting approval. Y

  11. Help with Very slow Laptop

    Hi Daniel, I see that DAP was getting flagged in Chrome, so I submitted it to our Malware Research Team to review it's current status. From what you are describing, I'm thinking that the updated definitions may not be making it onto your rig, or they are corrupted in some fashion. Please open your web browser, (don't use Chrome for this exercise) then copy and paste the links below, one at a time, into the address bar, then hit the Enter key: defs.pcpitstop.com/ defs.pcpitstop.com/ Follow the prompts to download each file to the computer, use the navigation tools to put the file somewhere that you can find it easily. Once you have the files downloaded, go to Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization>Folder Options (or File Explorer Options in Windows 10) and click on the View tab, then move the dot to "Show hidden files and folders" and click on Apply. Next, navigate to C:\Program Data\PCPitstopDat and move the downloaded pcpsfed.dat and pcpsfed-inc.dat file to inside of the datRTP folder that is at that location. After you have both files inside the datRTP folder, reboot the computer and let us know if the issue is resolved. As for the sluggishness of this lappy, is it an overall behavior, or primarily one when on the internet through a browser? If so, which browser. Y
  12. Hi I am looking for some help with an issue I am having with my Laptop. I have not gone to PC Matic support because I am sure it is not their problem. Supershield has been eratic in loading, a couple of days ago Supershield was not loading to the tray and support said I should reinstall and sent me a link, I reinstalled and that worked for a ouple of days. Now the last three times I started SS loaded to the tray but was red and when I right clicked and selected SS protection it showed "off until reboot" I selected to start SS but it did not start, restarting did not fix it with the red shield still displaying. Now the last time I restarted PCmatic/SS did not load again. I restarted and the same thing happened, all service are running. The reason I do not think it is a PCmatic/SS issue is that I have been working to get my Laptop running as it should, it has been very, very, slow and all hardware checks have been okay, Seatools has not found any HDD errors and I have uninstalled and reinstalled my GPU drivers. I have gone to the Windows 7 forum and GeekPolice Malware fighting site and passed all their tests with flying colours and everyone has been mystified. I am wondering if anyone here has any suggestions, I do not want to reinstal the OS because I have time pressures and am hoping that a different approach will work. Any ideas?? Cheers Daniel

  16. Upgrading laptop

    Hi Guys, I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction, as to which harddrive i would need to fit in this laptop: http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7232606 it only came with 32GB ram which i think is crazy in this day and age even a 500GB would be good. cheers guys Graham
  17. Failed Win 10 update.

    Good afternoon. I use 2 PCs One almost new machine which is up tp speed with Windows 10 upgrades and is of a fairly decent spec. I have a second older machine (5 years approx.) that no longer seems to want to update Win 10. I use the second machine for instructional purposes, for example. I place an instructional Guide on the old PC and work on the newer one. The older PC upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 back when it all started but just lately the second PC just will not upgrade. First it freezes with a blue screen and the message "Stopping Services" I re-start with the on/off switch and the upgrade continues, it goes on and off a few times and then freezes again, the monitor is off, the PC is on but nothing more happens, another re-start. Eventually the machine reverts back to my previous version of windows. That's fine, I can live with an older version of Win 10 but just lately I Keep receiving a message box on the screen urging me to upgrade...............again. The message box suspends use of the PC. This is happening every day. Is there a way to prevent these automatic upgrades or indeed can I get the PC to accept the full upgrade? I suspect not. Do I finally have to buy a new machine. Thanks for reading I'm very grateful.
  18. Did not want to start a new topic, so just bringing this back alive. I tried reinstalling PCMatic to get adblocker on firefox. Never asked me to install it. Are we able to currently put the blocker on FF or is this still a work in progress?

  22. Gateway SX2110G - disable on board video

    There should be an option in BIOS/Setup to choose between the onboard and the video card. i.e. PEG/PCI-E

  24. Add a Feature

    Hi TimOt This is a request that we have had on the road map for awhile and are actively looking to implement. The primary concern and reason for the hold up is because of the danger of forcing a rebooting or a shut down if there is a Windows update or some other automated software update taking place in the background. This could be very damaging and is the primary reason that we have not allowed this to take place during a "Scheduled" scan. We do have the "auto-fix" and "auto-reboot" options available in the "Options" menu for manual scans, as these scans are instituted by the user as opposed to a scan being done in the background without user control or supervision. Thanks for your request and I hope that you understand our caution. Y
