ntl broadband/CorrectConnect

When I got all the stuff to install my broadband connection on ntl, it loaded what I thought would be a useful program called CorrectConnect.

However, I have found this application to be a pain in the b*m in that it keeps giving duff gen and all sorts of peculiar results.

Consequently, I've disabled and removed it. So far, I haven't noticed any problems in my b/b connection (if anything, perhaps, its' slightly faster!.

Is it safe/sensible to leave out CorrectConnect? Will life still be fine without it?

TIA

I heard that Correct Connect doesn't actually connect you to the Internet. It just monitors the connection to see if you are. As you discovered, you don't need it.

I would suggest keeping it installed, but removing it from the startup group. If you do later find that you need it, you can run it from the Program menu.

I use it, but it doesn't seem to do anything useful. If my connection goes down, pressing refresh does not nothing. Unplugging the modem power suppy and plugging it in again re-established the link OK, whether I press refresh or not. Reconnection seems marginally quicker if I press refresh, but I wouldn't bet on it.

As you can see, I am still connected.

So, you found it as useful as I did!

I wonder what the faster ever recorded response is on this forum?

I know you are ancient, but you should have responded by now.
