Customer Question
Honestly too many things...

Honestly too many things seem to happen to it . can you possibly help me configure my local security policy and create restrictions to certain functions of the laptop ??? i have about a hundred "created tasks " none of which i have made and im pretty sure they are only supposed to be there when i create it so ? also i want some advice about my ip address and how to close all my unneeded ports i seem to have a bunch of things listening to these ports

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your laptop, and what operating system are you running?

Its an acer spin 3 sp351-15 757c running window s 10 pro i also have an installation of KALI LINNUX AS A VIRTUAL MACHINE

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I am pretty sure i have not and they may be automatic

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Just that wierd devices show up in my device manager and also theres an "local area connection wifi virtual adapter " that pops in and out like when i try to find it it seems to go away very quickly so i never get a chance to try to un install

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
