You would installed a lot of softwares in it. By installing more softwares and programs, they were saved in startup. They start running when you start windows. You have to disable programs from startup. You can disable programs from startup by going on Start > Run > msconfig > startup > Disable all programs. Your computer's speed is boosted.

I just purchased an RCA RT2906 home theater system and am experiencing audio delay when switching channels on my Verizon FIOS cable box. It takes 3 or 4 seconds for the audio to kick in each time I switch...


You can try using an optical cable but you will likely run into the same issue. Each time you change the channel the digital stream is interrupted. The HT likely takes this long to start the decode process.

This might fall under the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for; you might just get it" LOL But here's your link and perhaps a learning experience if you choose to take the leap.

Windows Networking Issue


FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

I already have verizon internet"fios' how ever i want to purchas cable for my hd tv


Usually Verizon can offer HD TV over the same FIOS cable. If you call them, they can connect it to your TV for you.

If you call the cable company they can probably set up cable for you. The two shouldn't interfere with each other.

Bundling my services with Verizon but they say it may not work as i have Windows 98, 128 omb Ram. What do i need to do?


You need to upgrade or just buy a new computer. Im assuming your getting Verizon DSL or FIOS
which need more computer power for the software that it needs.

Try looking for a new computer that is Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows Vista
with at least 1 gig of ram. That should fix the problem of verizon services notbeing compatible with your hardware.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
