Amazon Prime App Beware

I was uninstalling apps on my Galaxy Note 4 when I accidentially clicked on the Amazon Prime. I didn’t even know I downloaded it. Must have been bundled with nother app I downloaded. The next thing I see is a pop-up saying, Congratulations on your new Amazon Prime membership! WHAT? Yep, In a matter of 2 seconds I spent $101.13 all because I opened up an app. That’s it. No warning, no nothing, just charge me. Simply opening the Amazon Prime App will automatically charge you $101.13 for an Amazon Prime membership like it or not. At least at the time of this post. Talk about scammy. So I called Amazon customer support 1-866-216-1072 to get my money back. Then the Amazon customer support agent tells me I would have to wait 3-5 business days to get my $101.13. Isn’t that crazy?

So please be careful when opening Amazon Prime apps on your Android smart phone.

Windows Update Service Not Updating [Fixed]

Windows Update Service Not Updating [Fixed]

Today I had the privilege of updating a room full of Windows 7 desktops, about 28. A few of these Windows 7 desktops would not update. Basically the “Windows Update Service” is not responding to the update request. If this happens to you on a Windows 7 desktop, follow these quick and easy instructions for the fix.

Click on the Start Button, then type “cmd” in the search box and hit enter, right click on the program that displays and select to run as Administrator. At the command prompt type: net stop wuauserv and hit enter. Next type: net start wuauserv and hit enter. A restart does not need to happen, just give your Windows Update Service about 10 seconds to completely start.

After you complete this process make sure your Windows Update Service is on automatic.
