Does WI-FI Safe
I just purchased a Laptop, when I turn my Wi-Fi service in my laptop I found many secured and unsecured connection, then I connect with the best [good signal] connection, Can I use my MSN Messenger, Yahoo IM, and some website that required user name and password like this forum without worrying about my privacy over wi-fi connection.
Your wifi connection is only as secure as the ENCRYPTED network it's connecting to. NEVER think for a moment that you are secure, unless you have to use a password to sign onto a site. Otherwise, you are in the open.
You never know who has setup the network you are connecting to. Could be a nasty type just waiting for you to connect.
When I connect to WiFi I get this error msg: “Generic Host Process Win32 encountered a problem and needs to close”. Sent report to MSFT again ~6 times.
Error contains szAppName: szAppVer 0.0.0; szModName: unknown; szModVer 0.0.0.0 Offset 00000000.
Tech Info: C:\Documen\DonBei\locals\Temp\WER4.tmpdir00\svhost.exe.mdprp(?)
A short time later my Dell locks up unresponsive to CAD requiring a power off shutdown. Dell says it is a virus that eTrust EZ Antivirus cant detect. Viruses get blamed for every malfunction or poor design. I will appreciate some unbiased advice. Thanks DON
Remember viruses, hacks or spyware are usually editing files they shouldn't be and try to get windows to do things it wasn't designed to do. This often manifests itself in computer slowdown and weird errors that pop up out of no where.
But this problem could just as easily be legit programs in conflict trying to do something is shouldn't.
Check out this thread. Think you'll find it useful.
