Broadband account on another computer

  Sapins 10:44 09 Jun 2005

Is there anything to stop me setting up my Broadband account on a friends laptop so that I can bring him up to date with Windows critical updates and NAV virus definitions and then download some programmes such as Spybot Search and Destroy, SpywareBlaster, ieSpell and a few more?.

I had forgotten how slow dial-up is after using 2mb broadband.

No there shouldn't appart from you need to install your modem (and use that modem obviously)....

Then just loggin as normal... BUT as he is on dial-up there wouldn't be much point as HIS phone-line hasn't been activated for that speed

Should have said he will bring the laptop to me:-(

He lives a fair distance away and it's his turn to travel!

Thanks for your help,
