Customer Corner
 
What's it like to be Jason at work?! Here's a peek into one of my typical support calls.
 
"My Internet is really slow!"
 
Overall, the computer is running fast - applications open quickly, printing is fine.  However, whenever they launch any web browser, IE, Chrome or Firefox, web sites take forever to come up.  I ran a Speed Test and it showed 8mb download speed, which is fantastic.
 
Rebooting the computer and router didn't fix it.  I ran 'Task Manager' and it showed 'ietoolbar' taking 100% of the CPU processes. I then closed IE, opened Control Panel - Internet Options, deleted Internet temp files, and then reset to factory defaults.
 
Internet sites now open Fast! Customer Happy - Me Happy :o)

Thank you for being a MegaBit Minute subscriber. No trees were killed in the sending of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
