  1. I believe the site and/or company is Sunbelt Software.  I did a search for Counterspy Software on Google...

    Yeah... I agree... you will never get everything... but it is programs like AVG, Spybot, etc.. that sure do help.


  2. Hey Gang...

    We all have it and we all hate it...  I was on CNET yesterday and found some software called Counterspy.  I would imagine there are probably a few of you who already use this.  I have Spybot and run it at least three to four times a week. 

    I downloaded Counterspy yesterday and was totally shocked at what was on my system...  that Spybot had missed.  For those of you who already use this... post your comments.  For those who don't try it.  You may be surprised.


  3. Welcome to the forum blueorder... and welcome to FIOS.  Isn't it great!!! 

    I do have a word of warning... you will probably have to go out and purchase a larger hard drive... It is amazing how fast and how much you can download.  ;)

  4. Best advice...  once you get it cleaned... stay away from it.  I used Norton for many years and always had problems.  Funny thing was I had a system crash and ended up reloading everything... except Norton... all the previous issues I had went away.  Plus... I didn't realize what a resource hog it was.

    Good luck...

  5. Yes, they run the wire and outlet from the ONT to your PC.  AND... they do an excellent job.

    I have only heard of rave reviews on their installations.  Like I said... it is a good ideal to have

    an ideal of where you want things.  Now on the ONT... they will install it next to your existing

    phone box on the side of your house.

    Good luck... please let us know how the install goes... and what you think of the service.



  6. Hey LoJT...

    Welcome to the forum...  you WILL enjoy FIOS!!  What package did you get??

    OK... to answer a few of your questions... the ONT will go on the outside of your house.  They will

    install the battery backup in your garage... so there needs to be a power outlet close.  The will drill

    the battery backup connection through the wall from the ONT to the Battery Backup device.

    Whey they did mine I had already run the cable... mainly because I wanted Cat. 6.  I would make sure

    you have a good ideal of where you want them to run the cable... they are there to help you... but also,

    they do not have all day.  On the router... it will depend on the installer.  I have read some posts where

    the installers didn't care what router was used... but most of them... require the initial connection to be

    through the Verizon supplied router... you can always change it when they leave.

    Hope this helps... Enjoy... Enjoy
