XXXXX XXXXXnell :

hello sir/madam, i would like to help you, please let me know when you are ready.

Customer:

OK..ready now Jerry.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

hi, is it a browser extension (we call it "plugin" )

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

even if you don't visit this website, it shows in your history because your browser used that plugin

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

in fact it is one of the tens of plugins conduit made. you can see it here: http://apps.conduit.com/search?q=facebook&lang=en

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

i think this plugin was installed automatically when you installed an application. (it came together with it)

Customer:

I'm not sure what that means, does it mean IE used facebook to look at something. I'm not quite up to date on all the computer technology.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

no, it is a "helper" that allows you to view your friends' updates and messages in your internet browser. you can read more: http://apps.conduit.com/FB-App-Facebook-app?appid=a09e6985-3574-4fcd-b796-975649aae18b&lang=en

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

in fact you can delete it. because this kind of plugins generally slows down your internet browser.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

if you don't use it, you can delete it. probably it came with an application that you have installed recently.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

there are alot of plugins like that. you can see this list: http://apps.conduit.com/?lang=en

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

facebook app is one of them..

Customer:

I had never seen that one before, so that plug in would of just been installed?

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

yes. probably it came with an update. or you have installed a program and it came together with that program. (generally this kind of plugins came with another program; for example itunes, adobe reader etc)

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

it is not a dangerous program (malware or spyware) .. but if you don't use it, you can delete it.

Customer:

OK...I downloaded Infranview, that is probably where it came from.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

yes.

Customer:

I'll delete it...again thanks, XXXXX XXXXX worried someone was using my computer.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

generally "free" programs contain "plug-ins" like that.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

no, don't worry, your computer is safe. it is not a dangerous program.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

however if you delete it, your browser will be faster.

Customer:

Thanks for clarifying that for me, I'll check into those plug ins as well so I am more familliar with them as well, I'm sure more will pop up...Thanks Jerry!

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

you are welcome, best regards. if something goes wrong , i will be here anytime.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

We have at least two issues. Dell 5040 / windows 10 build
forever. let me explain. we get a warning every 30-days that we cannot validate our license. the user is behind a firewall which is not configured to block normal traffic to secured ports such as 443. The last time I tried to resolve this with ACT, I was told that you were not using any special ports or protocols. The only way we can get the license to work is to connect the pc to a wireless network. The other issue isnot being able to update ACT even when a user with admin permissions is logged in. I wanted toupdate ACT to see if the license issue might be corrected. … read more
