Set network location

  birdface 08:49 27 May 2010

Hi for some reason this morning I got this.
Set network Location when booting up.
I have been using W/7 since last November and have never been prompted before.
I use Windows Firewall.
Network 3 was the home selection that I decided to click on.
I use VirginMedia.I thought click on it and see where it takes me then I can cancel it if I wish.
But never got the opportunity of doing so.
It never said it was a Firewall thing and I always thought Network 3 was a mobile phone company.
Anyone have the same problem and is it Ok.

Yes that helps a bit.
As I only have the one computer should it be connected to a network.
It was the network 3 that got me as I had never heard of it and was just wondering why it should pop up now after using the computer for six months.
Just had a thought my Grandaughter was my computer on Tuesday night maybe she may have changed some settings.
I take it it will be Ok to leave the new settings as they are then.

I guess if everything is working ok, leave it as it is.

PS - only one PC, still counts as a Network when connected to Internet.
