I took delivery of a new Acer Laptop last week. I like it, it's windows 8, which is taking a bit of getting used to.
I've used Acer's free tech online chat twice now as it keeps dropping the internet connection. I have another laptop using the same connection, the other lappy doesn't drop connection but this on I've noticed it drop 7 times in the past 6 hours - could be more, but haven't been using it the whole of the 6 hours. It's offline for no more than c.20 seconds then reconnects. What should I do about this?
Morning onthelimit1, thanks for replying. Here's a surprise! I used the online tech chat yesterday night. The FIRST THING that was said, after I typed the problem was...I see you have McAfee suite installed - well yes, it's the free 60-day trial which I was gonna allow to run it's course then install Avast free which I've got on various other IT in the house. We uninstalled it, installed Avast and... WELL! NO COMPARISON!! It's faster, by quite a bit, it HASN'T dropped WiFi since, and I think he had it spot on. McAfee the culprit! Question is, IF this s/w is such a problem, WHY do people use it??
