  1. Have you tried the DecrypterFixer listed in the article?
  2. From a command prompt, run "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. This will fix the system file if it's from Microsoft. Further information on this here
  3. Try looking at the review sites out there as most tablets have their strengths and weaknesses: http://www.techradar.com/news/mobile-computing/tablets/10-best-tablet-pcs-in-the-world-today-1079603 Unless you buy one for sub-£100, it's very difficult to buy a bad one. Most people will tend to buy one which matches their phone, be it an iPhone or Android. Also, pop in to a store, have a look at them all and then shop around to find the best price.
  4. Totally agree with this. It was only known about by word of mouth and maybe some people didn't pass it on so that their local contention rates stayed low
  5. Update on the termination date here from Chess: http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2014/02/south-yorkshire-uk-digital-region-network-sets-15th-may-2014-closure-date.html
  6. Does anyone know why Origin haven't widely published this update letter, such as on their website, email to ALL customers, facebook, etc? Are they trying to hide something or is it just bad communication?
  7. Officially, you can still buy new systems with WIN7 Home until October 31, 2014. See here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/lifecycle Nearly 1000 results here at Amazon for new and used systems: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Laptops-Windows-7-Computers-Accessories/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=n%3A429886031%2Cp_n_operating_system_browse-bin%3A319707031 ---------- Post added 17-02-2014 at 14:51 ---------- And if you want one for out and about: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-Toughbook-Tablet-Refurbisher-Touchscreen/dp/B00IC5NPE8/ref=sr_1_16?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1392648037&sr=1-16
  8. Report it as a fault to your phone provider after you have carried out the steps listed here: http://btbusiness.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/8552/~/my-phone's-working-but-there-are-noises%2Fstatic-on-the-line.-could-this-be-due ---------- Post added 17-02-2014 at 14:23 ---------- Also, unless you can borrow another known-working phone from someone to test (preferably not a cordless one), you won't get much joy from BT, as if they send an engineer to fault find and it does turn out to be your phone that's at fault, you'll be billed for the call-out.
  9. I don't think that it's a case of being bothered. BT will have a number of companies running more expensive LES, etc lines in the city centre. Would you rush to remove this revenue stream? ---------- Post added 16-02-2014 at 00:53 ---------- Overall, Origin need to improve their communication with their customers. Dropping a PDF onto one web forum late on a Friday isn't the best way to deal with this. I would like to say that I feel confident of Origin's future, but I don't!
  10. Karl, Many thanks for that. Have you checked with dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome to see when your cab is going to be enabled for vdsl by BT? Before I went with DR for vdsl, my cab wasn't showing as planned to be done by BT. It's now showing 31st May 2014. ---------- Post added 15-02-2014 at 22:47 ---------- "I can also confirm that the build of our new network is going ahead, and will allow the majority of Origin’s customers to receive fibre optic broadband." New Network? 'Cause replicating BT's once wasn't enough?
  11. Could you provide the information within the PDF as I am unable to register on the forum (the "Human Verification" bit doesn't work!) as a post here? Many thanks.
  12. Pete, Could you please provide a copy of the update about Origin and DR as was posted yesterday on the DR region forum website? drlforum.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=1083 Many thanks
