    search bar

    Alright, after much searching, I've found the answer here. https://superuser.com/questions/683574/disable-address-bar-search-in-google-chrome-at-www-google-com "That's a misconception you have. That page you opened is actually the Chrome new tab page. If you set Google as your homepage and open it, there will be no problem. That place you wrote in is just an extension of the omnisearch bar." I tested on my end and this is the solution to what you're experiencing. Hope this helps, Tx

    search bar

    Are you referring to when you click in this bar, it moves up top once you start typing? Also, is this in Chrome?
  3. Unfortunately, with Win10, you can't pick and choose what you get in updates anymore like you could with 7, Vista, XP etc so I don't know how you can keep it from applying a driver update if it's really causing this.

    PC Matic on the last check was clear

    Alright, those were displayed in your browser? Do they still display when you open your browser? I suspect it was an ad that loaded and displayed them, what browser are you using and do you have ad blocking? Tx

    PC Matic on the last check was clear

    Hey Frank, Where are you seeing this warning? Is it while viewing a certain website or application? I'm not familiar with any of that text, font or otherwise, in our product. Tx
  7. This should have all the info you need. https://home.bt.com/tech-gadgets/computing/windows-10/how-to-fix-windows-10-problems-with-system-restore-11364008291943
  8. Reboot in Safe Mode and uninstall the driver(s) and or use System Restore to roll back to a date before the crash.

    Slow computer

    Hey RJG, If you're using Windows, open Internet Explorer as Admin, then go to pcpitstop.com/betapit and run the Overdrive scan. Once that's complete, copy the link in the browser's address bar, return to this post and paste the url here so we can get an idea of how to help you best. Tx

    Identify my PC's with the name I know them

    Hey daniellouwrens, You'll need to change the name of each pc, on the pc itself, reboot, then run a scan and clean in PC Matic to verify the name you've set is showing in PC Matic. Here's a how to the pc name. https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/change-your-computer-name-in-windows-vista/ Tx

    slow speed Xfinity

    Hey brian. Verizon wouldn't have left anything to limit your bandwidth and Comcast is notorious for speed irregularity, so your situation, unfortunately, all too common. I discovered the whole dns thing on my in-laws Comcast supplied Xfinity modem/router combo a while back, so you're right about that and their locking you out. Thankfully, you don't have to rent their equipment, you can purchase your own and have the freedom to set your own dns and prevent them from harvesting at least that much from your usage "tracks". Tx
  15. Hello cscarrott and Sorry you're still having difficulties, if you would, please open a trouble ticket with our support desk so we can look into this with you. http://www.pcpitstop.com/support/ Thanks, Tx
