  1. IE 11 problem

    Try this........ Open Programs and Features, then on the Left side, click on: Turn Windows Features On or Off Find IE11 and uncheck it (clear the box) Reboot Run sfc /scannow as suggested by Tex Reboot Go back and put a check next to IE11 in the Windows Features On/Off section Does it now function? Y
  2. Yes, entirely possible and probable. Not so much placing an IP in the IPv4 settings, so much as masking your actual IP address to the point that your ISP is not able to connect you to the internet. A VPN is a Virtual Private Network and this "Express VPN" may very well require additional configuration in order to utilize it properly. I'd get things back to their basics, especially on a Vista machine, as they can be challenging all by themselves. Perhaps, try a system restore point to a time that all was working as it should. Y
  3. Please run through the following exercise: Turn your router off (unplug it). Let it set for a few minutes then turn it back on (plug it back in). Wait till all lights have stopped flashing, try internet connection now. Copy and paste these lines in Note pad. @Echo on pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc attrib -h -s -r hosts echo localhost>HOSTS attrib +r +h +s hosts popd ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew ipconfig /flushdns netsh winsock reset all netsh int ip reset all shutdown -r -t 1 del %0 Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Double click on the flush.bat file to run it. Vista and Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 ... right click the .bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself. Y
  4. Optimize3 product

    Yes, PC Matic contains the functions found in Optimize3. If you are running PC Matic, then Optimize3 is not needed. Y
  5. compaq cq5110f help

    My guess off the top of my head would be a faulty power supply and/or leaking or bulging capacitors on the motherboard. Inspect the capacitors that are around the CPU especially. Y
  6. MSmything, What is it that is loading each time you turn on the computer? Are you getting a notification or an error message? Thank you for any clarification. Y
  7. iObit has been classified as a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) by our Malware Research team based on their installation behaviors and Digital Signature status. If you wish to run their programs with PC Matic, then please unquarantine the files removed and white list them. If you wish to use a reputable Uninstaller, then I would recommend Revo Uninstaller: https://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html Y

  9. Error message

    Hi dbirley, We just pushed out an update to Super Shield, so you shouldn't need to do anything but restart your computer. Please let us know if the error message comes back. Thanks Y
  10. Definitely open a ticket at our help desk so that we can get some more information and see what is going on. You can open a ticket from here: PC Matic Help Desk I see that you have 5 Windows 10 rigs on your account. Please specify in your helpdesk ticket exactly which is having this issue. Thanks Y

  13. Birthday party

    Happy Birthday Karen!! Surprised that ol' Caintry let you wear his hat for the day............ even though the rascal did use those trick candles. Hope that you had a wonderful celebration! Y
  14. Net work Firewall

    Frank, all that you ran into is a "scareware" advertisement designed to get people to call them, give them access to your computer and try to get money from you to stop their advertisement from running on your browser. There is no infection. Look here: https://forums.pcpitstop.com/topic/206721-infinite-alert-hoaxcall-this-number-scam/ To get PC Matic back on your computer, please download and install it from this direct link: https://pcmatic.com/download Once you install it, restart your computer. Open PC Matic and log in with your registered e-mail address and dedicated password, if you are not automatically logged in. Run a scan and clean and do a final restart of the computer. Be careful out there. These scam artists can be quite convincing. Y
