Okay that is very simple. Alright do what i ask about redoing the computer.

and then take photos of the programs you have installed in your Add/Remove (Programs and Features) *windows 7* and then all of us will tell you what you can keep and what to remove from that list.... the list will be long so snip a few photos okay.

like i said make sure you update all your core files with windows update first okay.

Don't touch anything or make any modifications till we get all the bloatware off your computer and configured correctly.

This is your Routers Address:
http://192.168.1.1
Since you only have one computer with Windows 7.
I would deactivate your IP6 on all computers.
Your not going to be using HOmegroup anytime soon.
Use these for your DNS servers.... They are from www.opendns.com
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
Computer 1 (Windows 7)
IP: 192.168.1.10
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Computer 2:
IP: 192.168.1.11
Everything else is the same
Computer 3:
IP: 192.168.1.12

Everytime you add a computer. Justchange the digit on the IP address so there is
no conflicts.

Update, I've installed codecs adobe and java. I've deleted the stuff off of my computer but admittedly not all of the "just cause you don't need it" list.

Now, I'm not exactly sure where to put the info into my router. The onlything that I see that I have to work with is DDNS...right now it's disabled. I've got 3 choices for server address a host name, user name and a password spot. other than that I'm not seeing where I'd put the information into.

Sometimes you just have to hate your life.
