    Howdy Everyone!

    *waves!!!* We want kidpictures!!! Liz
  2. Not sure if this is the same model number or not, but I asked pretty much the same question a while ago and thanks to the experts here, we had a working router until the kids took it back to College in August Check here **A couple extras to that link---the step where one has to press the power button on the router to reset it just goofed things up so we learned to skip it, anddddd, we ended up using the address, because the one Linksys recomended didn't work.*** When the kids took the router back to College, they had some problems and got ahold of a livechat rep at Linskys--maybe that is better than calling??? Good luck! Liz
  3. Happy Birthday, Antonio! Hope you have a wonderful day Liz

  5. Happy Birthday, Marsh! Have a wonderful day Liz
  6. We gotta remember that Hitest has a little one and a teenager--this close after Christmas AND with the kids being on School Break, I bet his brain is turning to mush (and sending my sympathies to you! With both my kids working during break, I actually MISS them, they're never home!) Pete, as far as getting infected, I never even gave updating that stuff a thought! Thank you! I must admit that I've never updated that stuff. I never use FlashPlayer, Adobe or WinZip so never *thought* I needed to keep up on that stuff. And Java....nope, not that, either and I'm thinkin' Java is part of "the internets", isn't it?? Son is on Break till Jan5, I'll make HIM tinker if he has time since he actually......likes it. I'm betting everything that site checks is gonna need updating! Liz
  7. I think Marty's sharing my pain and sending along some sympathy. Liz, well written and technical in the same sentence??? Impossible Liz
  8. Ohhhhh, that's easy! Thanks, Falcon! Off to google the cooties Edit! Opened the log and there was a bunch of techo gobbly-goop but clicked the "quarantine link" and there was this precise little list of cooties, that is exactly what I was looking for so thanks again, Falcon for leading me to it Liz
  9. Ummmm, as usual, I don't know where I should put this question so if it should be in the malware section, feel free to move it I got bit by that Phony Antivirus Cootie (2008? 2009? too busy fixing it to remember). I tell ya, Daughter is a Cootie Magnet, she used my idiotbox for an hour and swears she didn't click on any links. Thanks to Malwarebytes, it is gone and the idiotbox is running stellar again. Buttttt, when Malwarebytes was doing its thing, it generated a log of the cooties found on notepad. Yeah, I didn't think to see if the log had a name and when I asked Son how to find Notepad (yes, I don't know how!) he said I shoulda written the name of the log down. I didn't. I figured that was the only thing ON notepad since I never use it, ha! (darned kids....) So, because I'm anal , I want to see that log. How can I find it? Or is it living in the Malwarebytes program somewhere, and where/how? Don't forget, Kindertech translations please Thanks a bunch, Liz

    Happy Holidays

    Hoping everyone at BT's has a happy, safe and Blessed Christmas and Hanukkah! Eat well, drive carefully. Love, Liz ***Antonio, good to see you!***
  12. Welcome to Besttechies, Kevin! And what a lucky Daughter you have, she is gonna be so thrilled. Just adding a little extra, because I have a Daughter too. Girls tend not to look up "unscrupulous sites" (like boys do, yup, have one of them, too) but girls tend to click on anything. Educate her about the AIM, Myspace and Facebook Cooties (the one that says, "hey, is this you? click here"), install Spywareblaster, have a good firewall and AV. And remember the Parent Mantra, "she'll be fine!" Liz

  17. Happy Birthday Darlene! Hope you have a wonderful day Stay warm, Liz
  18. Ohmannnnn, Joe, that stinks! But sounds like its fixable and as I tell my kids, "oh, you'll be fine!" As much as I hate to say the word "sue", you could do future patients a favor by putting this guy out of business. We had a dermatologist in our area that was re-using sutures and he is now behind bars. A tiny condolence for the people he gave hepatitus to but at least more folks won't be getting sick. Thoughts and prayers for you and vent anytime you want, folks are willing to listen here! Love, Liz
