  1. Pcpitstop Does It Work For Mac

    Where does it say that? Can you please post a link / screenshot - It only mentions Windows Systems in the requirements.
  2. I don't think there's a lot you can do locally; apart from ensure your router firmware is update and you have a good firewall inplace. Might be worth talking to your ISP.
  3. Overdrive Error

    Works fine for me...maybe it was just down when you tried?
  4. IE 11 problem

    I think the moral of the story is..... "Ditch IE"
  5. IE 11 problem

    Try the standalone installer...... https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/18520/download-internet-explorer-11-offline-installer
  6. Info on PCMatic and McAfee

    Probably find MCaffe has deleted some of the registries for PC matic as they've popped up as 'false-positives' on it's scan and they've been quarantined. I would run the tools Y's posted above to remove McAffe then download and re-install PC matic. It's never a good idea to have 2 AV solutions running in parallel they really won't play nicely!!
  7. Windows Vista 64 bit

    If you have the original Vista licence key you could do a clean install. Download the Vista iso from here and either create a bootable USB or burn the iso to disk. This is the official Microsoft download - not some dodgy copy!! **Taken the link out as this was for SP1 only** Looks like MS have stopped providing links to Vista.
  8. I think you're right about the way you put it into sleep mode. Perhaps the drivers don't shutdown properly which means you have to do a full reboot to wake the driver up. Never use sleep mode so not 100% sure.
  9. Hi; Can you shut the PC down again; switch it off (completely, not hibernate or anything); when you switch it on do you see the POST / BIOS screens? Are you able to boot into safe mode?
  10. Going to need some more info: What OS are you using (W10?) Is this Wifi or Ethernet connection? Have you run the network diagnostics tool in windows?
  11. Anyone using a Fire Stick?

    First thing to do is to install KODI!! Got rid of mine and stuck with my Google stick instead; Plus bought a couple of smart TVs for the house that have all the apps on them without any of the restrictions that Amazon and Google put on each others services.
  12. If you haven't already just try flushing the DNS: ipconfig /flushdns You need to this as admin (Right click the CMD icon and select run as admin) Try a different DNS: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using :wp:
