This is the preferred, best way to upload an image or a file to a post.

Press the ALT and PrntScrn keys at the same time, this will capture only the active window to use in Paint or your preferred graphics editor.


You may also upload a photo or image you already have on your PC,as you would a file, without using the Snipping tool.


If you'd like to do a full fresh install we can help with that, or anything else, no need to go to some fly-by-night pseudo-techs.
I don't know which window you are talking about. And I've never done this sort of thing. I'm not sure I wouldn't just mess up. If you want to see a particular window, I can try to follow your instructions and copy/paste. No harm in learning how.

However, I do have a bit of news. I called my ISP to ask if they could have put that there. I'll probably not tell this exactly right - didn't write it down - but, yes, when they hook up the modem and no setup is indicated, it is possible that Network 5 was automatically chosen. So, this may have come from my ISP although I do wonder why I've never heard of it before.

That said, I just managed to find a gentleman who used to work on my computer and he is coming out to give it a good cleaning. We can get rid of Network 5 if it isn't necessary. I suppose it will depend on my Charter hookup and how I download mail to Mozilla Thunderbird.

I do thank you all for helping me find that so I could make sense. Good that you are here.

My computer is not - or should not be - connected to any network. I only have one computer. And (having read the choices) I never take a huge desk top to a public place.

Please explain. Can I ignore this? Thank you.

Ah, I'm sorry. I no longer have that. It came with the update notice and left when I closed it and went to do the updates. I've not seen it since. I shall, though, make a note about how this is done in case I need to try it another time. Thank you.

It is probably an ethernet connection a wired connection. But would need confirmation of that.

Open a command(cmd)prompt:

Click on start>programs>accessories> cmd prompt type: ipconfig /all press enter. Right click on the screen choose select all and right click in your reply box and choose paste.

I don't think this is what I got the first time. I should maybe do it over but no time now. Thanks for this experience.

You have wired ethernet connection there you are connected direct to a modem you are directly exposed to the internet hope you got a good anti-virus and firewall.

Look for a wire bit thicker coming from your computer to the modem.

A router connected to the modem would be best it will give you a measure of protection with its own firewall SPI and DOS protection along with NAT all your ports wont be exposed with a router finances bearing up of course.

It is all fixed and thank you all for teaching me a few things about what is inside my computer. I confess that I don't try too hard to play around with it. I'm so afraid of really messing it up. I do leave it to the experts. They have their skills; I have mine and "never the twain shall meet".

Nos dawch. Good night. Hazel M
