  1. OK gave it a go. It installed Dragon browser and worse internet security which either I didn't notice or slipped in. Along with Geek Buddy and I remember now why I didn't like their antivirus. Its incestuous. For one thing Geek buddy is paid program set up for USA so got rid of that but even with Geek could not uninstall the internet security part which clashed with my anti Virus - which was what alerted me - Avast - and in the end had to do a forced uninstall with Geek. Love Geek best uninstaller and free. So thanks but it certainly is not even close to being as good as Online Armour Free Fi
  2. Thanks I will give it a go - tried their anti-virus - excellent - nut bit too complicated.
  3. Thank you. I have been trying to put it back onto a Lap Top my husband uses mainly for soccer. He let it go to W 10 and has complained ever since of popping in messages fro Windows whilst watching soccer video's just as a goal is about to be scored. So having had enough of the complaints I took it back to factory settings which were luckily Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1. And Windows 7 is being supported right up to 2020 and I reckon beyond as many millions still using it or having no support for XP have like businesses - gone to Windows 7 Pro as I did in my business now XP gone and
  4. I have had to do a reinstall of system and for some reason cant get OA license accepted. Know it is no longer supported but ike others still run it as best round. Not the first time since discontinued etc so have you blocked keys now if we have to reinstall etc.?
  5. Thank you that worked a treat. Late getting back due to for some reason couldnt start except via safe mode, tried all the things suggested by MS and others on forum and finally was thinking would have to format back to XP then upgrade again to Win 7 but a tech at Harvey Norman a local store said try just putting in your disc with Win 7 and see. Nothing didnt recognise it and panicked. Finally ended up in the place where the computer rating is shown and instead of 3.3 it was greyed out and key at the base looked odd so tried to reactive and that worked. So that is a thing to check i
  6. Running Windows 7 32 bit. Had this for a while now and today tried both FF and IE10 - FF took 5 mins to arrive. Again the message. Now have vry few add ons and have followed the directions from Mozilla to check reasons for slowness. Cant find what is the problem - was slow on FF 21 too. Now stopped updates til find problem. So tried to see if OA was stopping it as suggested. And thought at ome time there was a section where I could put in a program that I could run without a problem because Firefox says it reads a lot of files on booting and that my OA maybe slowing it etc. C
  7. My last update was 26th Ocotober and it tries and I have tried manually cant update at all.
  8. Thanks for that - i have installed the latest version and it has now updated itself so seems all is well. See others had same problem with earlier version. I do have XP3 service pack as just done a recovery. Might be worth mentioning that in doing that have to leave OA in learning mode or it blocks eveything. Forgot that as had had it so long andit just does its job well.
  9. I keep getting this message re port socket error 1101 and log says update failed. Any suggestions?
  10. Recently had to go back to base OS and found OA was blocking downloading new programs so put it into Learning mode and redonwloaded - ok then. But now it continually finds that my Avast Free Edition Anti Virus 6.0.1367 bin file is suspect every day when it downloads updates. Also Super Anti Spyware updates daily and it does the same Version 5..0.1144 Pro Lastly it loaths Internet Download manager every time I load Firefox or it downloads up comes alerts on most of its files. It always did dislike IDM before I had to do a recovery which was caused by IE8 downloading more than once and into
  11. Worked for me - havent had any problems since got latest version and it is updating itself. Explains a bit about the problems I had been experiencing too with disconnections because it had been trying to update itself since 24.10 but I only got to see the socket error early November - meanwhile was churning ISP because old one had had 11 months of not being able to fix connection so never looked for another reason on new one - thought same old even though they said was fixed and now at my end. New Isp - BigPond - great as own the copper network so boots on the ground but had to wait out cont
  12. I am having the same problem but only became apparent with messages re socket error 11001 and 10054 on 2nd November for some reason. Last update 24.10 failed and it keeps trying to do it if you click update now. Will dl new version as also on VTW dont even know how to find sockets - but then don't know too much until something like this goes wrong and some explains. then I write it down so if it happens again etc.
