I was on Google searching the information about renting a house and a pop up came up saying my device had been infected with “Your battery is 28.1% damaged because of harmful viruses from recent adult sites” and to hit ok to fix it. Well I didn’t hit ok I just closed the website out. Should I be worried? I am so scared with the warning.
Important Things You Have To Know If Your iPhone/iPad Fell Prey to The 28.1 Warning:
The 28.1 Warning is simply used to promote services or malicious software on your iPhone or iPad. Most of the pop-ups are for revenue, from services that are promoted by adware or potentially unwanted programs. The pop-ups might also offer a update for Java, the Adobe Flash Player or a Media Player update, which are obviously scams to install more unwanted software. If you got this 28.1 Warning pop-up once and you managed to close it then you are probably fine. But if you keep getting it constantly then there’s probably some app installed on your device which has to be removed. And you need to know:

My Dell laptop won’t connect to the Wi-Fi but can see the wifi routers account, or more correctly says “limited connection”. Every other pc, laptop and phone in the house can connect to the wifi very well. This Dell laptop won’t connect ever since the auto-upgrade to windows 8.1. I would consider that the problem is with the router except that all my other devices connect to it just fine. Also it should be noted that this Dell did connect and use the wifi router just fine until the upgrade to 8.1. So I didn’t think it is the router problem, but I confounded by why this won’t work. Do you have any suggestions? Please help me.
Why computer won’t connect to the WiFi? How to fix?
Are you annoying with the computer won’t connect to the WiFi? Actually, this is a popular problem. We all think that take having an always on wireless internet connection for granted: we’re used to it just being there when we need it. Unless you’re particularly unlucky and plagued by broadband problems, or live in a remote part of the country, fast access to the internet, allowing the streaming of audio and high-definition video, is the norm. But the problem with this is that things go wrong so infrequently that we’re not used to fix them. When something does go awry with the WiFi connection on your computer, it is tricky to know where to start. If your computer won’t connect to the WiFi, maybe the problem is your router or your broadband provider’s network, or there is an issue with your own WiFi network. You can check the first by following your broadband provider’s advice. Read the rest of this post »

My file explorer simply keeps crashing when navigating in folders. Everything has worked fine for the first few months on my computer, but in the last week I have had the issue every single time.
I open up a folder and it immediately goes to one full screen. If I try to move or resize the folder, the folder resizes very small and blinks constantly. Basically it crashes and I have to right click and close File Explorer. And I go to “This PC” and the window that pops up shows all my drives but not how much storage they have left. When I try opening a drive or folder the window and taskbar closes down and reopen after a few seconds. It happens almost every time I try opening a folder.
Do you know how to fix this? Please help.

Hello, I’m using Firefox browser on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. The Firefox has been crashing at random times. I have been ignoring it for the most part, but it is has been happening more frequently the last few days, so I want to finally try to figure out what’s going on. I have tried updating Firefox a few times, as well as my add-ons and plug-ins. But it hasn’t helped. And as far as I can tell, there doesn’t seem to be anything specific that triggers the crashes. Sometimes it will happen when I go to a YouTube link and sometimes it will happen when I’m in the middle of reading plain text. And sometimes it happens when I’m not doing anything at all. What do I do? It would be greatly appreciated if you can help me.

Hi, I have one computer running windows 7, I can’t open the App store icon on the desktop, and I failed to remove the Office 2013 in Control Panel. It suggested something wrong with the system. Then I run sfc /scannow, I got “windows resource protection could not start the repair service”. The Windows Modules Installer service is started. Please tell me what to do? How to fix this problem?
Why do you have “windows resource protection could not start the repair service” error? Why sfc /scannow commend doesn’t work?
As we know, once our computer system loss some important components and result in fails to log in the system or can’t open some app, we can use the sfc /scannow commend to repair. The main reason of the error is that Trusted Installer or the Windows Module Installerservice is not enabled. If this service is not running on your computer then you have to fix Windows resource protection could not start the repair service by enabling this service in order to use System file checker. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash. And the sfc /scannow option is one of several specific switches available in the sfc /command, the Command Prompt command used to run System File Checker. In Windows 10/8/7/Vista, the System File Checker is integrated with Windows Resource Protection, which protects registry keys and folders as well as critical system files. If any changes are detected to a protected system file, the modified file is restored from a cached copy located in the Windows folder itself. So if at any point of time if you find that you have hacked some system files or maybe applied some tweaks or replaced system files, maybe while customizing your Windows, and you now find that your Windows is not working properly, you may want to consider running this utility first, before trying a System Restore. To do so, you will have to first open an elevated command prompt window. Read the rest of this post »
