2 of my flock have reported - what to me are not feasible- but I thought - describe and talk here before I go and put my foot in my mouth. Old Ram 1. This guy having internet connectivity problems- got onto his ISP [Virgin Cable] Speaking to his 'Indian Virgins' of Bombay [his description] was told to do this and that and then restart in 'Safe Mode' He said OK- I can get online in Safe Mode but not regularly.- That is what he told me- I am aware that Safe Mode' excludes drivers - therefore running external devices - and I tried it just moment ago - its true - on my machine to prove the point - No connectivity - No printer - in safe mode . So what was he telling me-? Is it different for cable connected folk or is he plain confused?
Old RAM 2. This guy is a TalkTalk customer He got on to his ISP[Different lot of Indian Virgins do you think?] and was given a talk through to get his system on line. On this occasion what he described was not a talk through to do this and that so much as 'Remote Assistance' control of his machine. Is that method employed by ISP's does any one know?
Old Ram 2 is a TalkTalk customer - formerly Tiscali- his address is still Tiscali. And this is the guy that appeared to have been sorted by remote support.
This afternoon he was telephoned by a gentlemen from the same place as the Indian Virgins- Through a very strong accent he told old Ram2 that his 'Tower guarantee' had run out, and that he could continue support by subscribing to 'Support on Click' offering a range of services for a fat fee - of course. A Google revealed some not very good reports.for example click here or click here and plenty more the point is How did this lot get to know he had been in trouble? Are they linked in someway to TT or is there skulduggery at work?
