Windows Media Center removed in Windows 10. This is how to install and get to run WMC on Windows 10 system

wmc

Microsoft has officially killed off Windows Media Center. Here’s how you can get Windows Media Center running on Windows 10.

  1. Download the WindowsMediaCenter_10.0.10134.0v2.1.rar file from here.
  2. Then, with 7-Zip or other .rar program, extract the folder to your main system drive and open it.
  3. Right-click on the file _TestRights.cmd and select Run as administrator.
  4. Then right-click on the file Installer.cmd and select Run as administrator. Press any key to exit the installer when it’s finished.

Make a quick Windows search for Media Center and it will be your top match, but you can also find it under Window Accessories in the Start menu.
You should be able to run WMC normally from there.

You can also pin to desktop or start menu to make it easier for you.

Fortinet: Fortigate Service and Support Policy – Life Cycle Update from 1st October 2015

This document is provided by Fortinet Corporation and shown here for customer and staff information only.

Summary
This document is intended to outline the policy that Fortinet has established for the activation date of warranty
and support. Renewals of support contracts will start from the end of the previous support contract.

In Summary
• Product warranty and support starts at the EARLIER of the following events:
−− At time of registration
−− At first point when unit will connect with Fortinet and request updates
−− If these two events do not occur within 100 days of the shipment of product from Fortinet, the
hardware, service and support will be auto-activated 100 days from Fortinet shipment to Distributor
• At initial power-up it is HIGHLY recommended that the customer follow the registration process to ensure
timely updates and support.

Warranty
Warranty/Support start is tied directly to the ship date or activation connection with Fortinet. Warranty is
the base level of coverage on the hardware platform. Fortinet’s warranty is included in its End User License
Agreement.

Support
The start of support is tied to the timing of hardware shipment or activation, but a maximum of 100 days grace
period is provided in EMEA/APAC. Support is considered “insurance” in many ways, meaning it is there in case
something goes wrong, hence it is important that the support agreement starts around the time product is
received and doesn’t wait to start until an issue comes up.

Bundles
The start date for bundles will follow the warranty/support policy above.

Effective Date
This new policy applies to products purchased and shipped from Fortinet on or after October 1st, 2015.

 

Life Cycle Policy Update

Fortinet is committed to providing regular patches and support services for a period of 36 months from the date of general availability. An additional 18 months beyond this period has been added, bringing the total duration of support for a software or firmware release to 54 months.

This is a way for Fortinet to ensure that we are providing your customers with the most up-to-date Fortinet security protection.

Security systems with a difference – also for OH&S, tracking and safety with and without physical internet

Wondered how to get some surveillance happening without an internet connection?

We have the answer… An example of this might be a construction site which is a mobile container and moves site to site. Security on these premises is paramount not only for theft, but health, safety and tracking. With the ability to have internet on 3G/4G, wired infrastructure is a thing of the past.

Surveillance made simple

Having security cameras in your business is one thing, but storing and retrieving the data, is another. So many clients find that when it comes time to actually reviewing the video and/or audio footage, it is either too hard to find or isn’t there.

Let us work with you in giving you a demo on how this technology works. Going to a retail store and buying a kit may not be enough in a court of law.

High speed internet solutions using fibre, fixed wireless, NBN and ethernet connections throughout the country

Looking for a faster internet connection without breaking the bank?

SITWIS FINAL

We have a number of different technologies that can offer high speed internet. Not all areas and locations can get any or all of the services listed.

If an address and phone number is provided to Sterling IT, and an understanding on usage including speed requirements and download limits, we can provide a solution to suit.

Please note: If you are a Pacnet customer (ADSL only), we can transition you to another provider and save you over $130 per month, in most cases. Contact Us Immediately

The technologies Sterling IT work with and recommend to our clients include :

1. NBN – This is a residential grade service however some businesses are taking this on due to cost and current speeds. An example of this is for $79 per month you can get speeds up to 70Mbps with a 250GB download limit. However as more clients come online, the services will reduce in speed as they are shared.

2. FIXED WIRELESS – This is NOT 3G/4G but a proprietary wireless solution offering 1:1. Unlike ADSL/NBN, it is not a shared service. While one of the most expensive connections, it is not reliant on any Telstra infrastructure and is a full business grade service. Sterling IT use this technology to manage 1000+ computers. Unlike cabled services, it is not reliant on distance to exchange and does not slow down if you are

far or close.
Other advantage is we can install within 1 week in most cases (please contact us to confirm at time required)
Cost of this start from $199 per month however has a high setup fee from $300-$950.

3. METRO ETHERNET – This service is by far the best and most cost effective service. The problem with this service is it is very limited to where it has been rolled out and available.
We currently have some awesome specials till the end of December 2013. Services do take 25 days to install so an install wouldnt complete to the following month of order in most cases.

Here is this months only special (expires end of Dec 2013)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FIRST BOX SHOWS NORMAL PRICES WHERE SECOND BOX IS SPECIAL.
THIS IS ALSO UNLIMITED DATA
