    Internet Access

    When I click on "Internet Access" Icon on the taskbar, I see a list of user names that I do not know. Does this mean these users are getting a free ride on my wifi? Also I find my laptop wakes up from sleep on its own and I wonder if its related to this issue?

    McAfee Shreading Tool

    I had already spoke with McAfee tech. I was careful and highlighted the file I wanted to shread. Now how most of my documents got picked, I have no guess.

    Interpret SFC /scannow results

    It's possible while you were on the net , that spyware or a virus was placed on your computer and that could be the reason that some files could not be repaired.

    Interpret SFC /scannow results

    I run sfc/scannow and the application repairs or replaces any corrupt files it finds and never had an instance it could not repair. I also run it as an administrator and maybe that's why.

    Video Commercials

    I contacted by email to wpvi channel 6 in Philadelphia, Pa. and told them of my complaint.
