Hi, My network went down earlier in the week.  Now it is fine, but my macbook airport no longer detects it and keeps asking for a WAP.  When I put the password in, it 'times out'.  I'm getting rather fed up.

Hi, My network went down earlier in the week.  Now the network is fine, I can connect through the ethernet cable, but my macbook airport no longer detects it, when prompted, macbook will find it, but I get asked for the WAP.  When I put the password in, it 'times out'.  Prior to the network problem my macbook worked fine everytime. Anyone know the answer?

My guess is all the issues are probably related and fall back to malware.
AVG is probably correct in identifying malware. So I suggest you try some cleaning tools other than Emsisoft .
ones I use (all of them one after the other until I find one that can cope) are;
Roguekiller http://www.adlice.com/softwares/roguekiller/
Malwarebytes anti malware Free http://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/var2/confirm/
ESET online scanner http://www.eset.com/int/home/products/online-scanner/
So first create a clean boot in Windows using Microsoft's instructions https://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135?wa=wsignin1.0 and then run the anti malware applications.
My outside looking in guess is that malware has set itself up as an internet proxy and is is downloading copies of itself and other malware, blocking some mail port as times as downloading more malware is more important, and probably breaking your tivo as well..
Try the malware programs first. If that does not work I will try and talk you through some logging to see what is happening.

    How do i change my security question? I tried to buy music on itunes and it asked for verification i can not answer the security questions correctly...

    Reset Security Questions
    Frequently asked questions about Apple ID
    Manage My Apple ID
    Or you can email iTunes Support at iTunes Store Support.
    If all else fails:
      1. Go to: Apple Express Lane;
      2. Under Product Categories choose iTunes;
      3. Then choose iTunes Store;
      4. Then choose Account Management;
      5. Now choose iTunes Store Security and answer the bullet questions, then click
          Continue;
      6. Sign in with your Apple ID and press Continue;
      7. Under Contact Options fill out the information and advise iTunes that you would
          like your security/challenge questions reset;
      8. Click Send/Continue.
    You should get a response within 24 hours by email.
    In the event you are unsuccessful then contact AppleCare - Contacting Apple for support and service.
    Another user had success doing the following:
    I got some help from an apple assistant on the phone. It is kind of round about way to get in.
    Here is what he said to do and it is working for me...
      a. on the device that is asking you for the security questions go to "settings", > "store" >
          tap the Apple ID and choose view"Apple ID" and sign in.
      b. Tap on payment information and add a credit/debit card of your preference then select
          "done", in the upper right corner
      c. sign out and back into iTunes on the device by going to "settings"> "store" > tap the
          Apple ID and choose "sign-out" > Tap "sign -in" > "use existing Apple ID" and you
          should be asked to verify your security code for the credit /debit card and NOT the
          security questions.
      d. At this time you can remove the card by going back in to edit the payment info and
          selecting "none" as the card type then saving the changes by selecting "done". You
          should now be able to use your iTunes store credit without answering the security
          questions.
    It's working for me ...I just have to put in my 3 digit security pin from the credit card I am using.
    Good Luck friends!

  • HT1420 Why does my computer keep asking to be authorized when i put my iphone on the charger?

    Why does my computer keep asking to be authorized when i put my iphone on the charger?

    Authorization and Deauthorization
    See iTunes Store- About authorization and deauthorization for Macs.
    See How to Authorize or Deauthorize iTunes | PCWorld for Windows.
    In iTunes you use the Authorize This Computer or De-authorize This Computer option under the Store menu in iTunes' menubar. For Windows use the ALT-S keys to access it.
    More On De-authorizing Computers (contributed by user John Galt)
    You can de-authorize individual computers, but only by using those computers. The only other option is to "de-authorize all" from your iTunes account.
      1. Open iTunes on a computer
      2. From the Store menu, select "View my Account..."
      3. Sign in with your Apple ID and password.
      4. Under "Computer Authorizations" select "De-authorize All".
      5. Authorize each computer you still have, as you may require.
    You may only do this once per year.
    After you "de-authorize all" your authorized computers, re-authorize each one as required.
    If you have de-authorized all computers and need to do it again, but your year has not elapsed, then contact: Apple - Support - iTunes - Contact Us.

  • I lost my original disk for photoshop 7... I need to update.. it won't let me.. and keeps asking for the disk.. even though the program is on my pc... How can i get my update?

    I have photoshop 7 on my pc but have lost my original disk.... I went to update it and  the update is not seeing the file on my pc... and it keeps asking for my disk.. but i can't find it...
    How can i update it...

    Ah, you had Photoshop 7.0 working, and now it's not.  I see that as a separate issue to updating it.  I'm not sure why it would ask you to update it.
    Do you know whether you have 7.0 or 7.0.1 at this point?  You might be able to do a Properties function on Photoshp.exe and see that info.
    You could make an attempt to reset Photoshop's preferences to defaults.  Press and hold Control - Shift - Alt simultaneously immediately upon cold-starting Photoshop. If you get the keys down quickly enough - and you have to be really quick - it will prompt you to confirm deletion of your current preferences, which will lead to the establishment of a fresh default set.  If it does not prompt you, you haven't been quick enough to get the keys down.
    Only other thing that comes to mind is to use Windows System Restore to restore back to a restore point where Photoshop was working, or restore from a backup (you do make backups I hope).
    If that fails, and you need to do a fresh install but no longer have the original disk and serial number I'm afraid you may be out of luck.  There's no place I know of from which to download a fresh full copy of Photoshop 7.0.

  • Firefox will not recognize web pages with .aspx suffix, keeps asking for a program selection to open the file.

    Searched for "st davids austin" on Google. In results clicked on listing for St David's Hospital North Austin. Apparently the site is written in ASPX and FF will not open it. It keeps asking for me to make a program selection to open the page. When I select FF as the program it just loops back and asks the same question again.

    1. That is caused by a few different Bugs in Firefox 3.6 and earlier versions. It looks like it was fixed for Firefox 4.0.
    2. Firefox doesn't go by the "system default printer". Firefox goes by the last used printer in Firefox as being the "default" in Firefox. It will remember the "last used in Firefox" and will use that printer until you switch to another printer and then remember that one.

  • My ipod works fine, but won't connect to my car anymore.  It did for two years, I have had the car checked out, and the car works with others' ipods and iphones.

    My Audi is set up to be iPod compatible.  For the first two years of the cars' life, my ipod worked fine.  When it went out, I had the dealer replace the connection wire and check the system.  My car now works fine with iphones and others' ipods, but not mine.  I tried rebooting it and powering down, but nothing has worked to get the car to recognize the ipod.  Would really appreciate anyone's thoughts on the matter.  Many thanks.

    So you tried everything here:
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    If you  have iTunes 11 turn on the Sidebar. Go to iTunes>View and click on Show Sidebar. You can also do a Crtl+S to show the sidebar. The sidebar is where Devices appears. and Control+B to show the Menu bar
    Try connecting to another computer to help determine if you have an iPod or computer problem.

  • Why app store keep asking me to update when i deleted the app

    app store alert me to update the app ... i never use this app and i deleted the app...
    but app store still has the alert red sign on the app store ... why this is still on since i deleted the app?...
    i used cleanapp to remove the app ... is it the removal is not 100% or else?...
    please advise for a solution...
    thanks...

    You may have installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
    Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store alert. For example, if the App Store says you need to update "Twitter," the hacked app may be "Angry Birds" or something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you have to carry out a systematic search.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    In the Finder, press command-F to open a search window, or select
    File ▹ Find
    from the menu bar. In the search window, select
    Search: This Mac
    from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu initially showing Kind. From that menu, select  Other...
    A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select Raw Query and click OK or press return.
    Now there will be a text box to the right of popup menu. Click in that box and paste (command-V).
    The search window will show all the App Store products you've installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
    At least one of the items listed in the search window is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
    Log out and log back in. Test.
