How To Fix Error Ref Code S0a00 On Comcast

I know its definitely not a good feeling when you are interrupted while you are watching your favorite show / movie on your TV, especially by your own cable network. The other day I was watching a movie on some channel and suddenly a message popped up on the screen

Wait a minute, the channel should be available shortly.

And then it had something like Ref Code : S0a00 at the bottom.

WTH, I thought its just a minute. Well, it was way more than a minute. I guess I had missed the climax of the movie by then.

 I didnt like it though, and then I called up my cousin who also has comcast cable at his home. Only then I got to know that the problem was actually at my home and not the entire cable network.

But thankfully, he had been through the same situation before. He told me that it was due to some signal issues. He was my perfect guide. He told me a few possible methods to get rid of the problem ( which worked for him ), and I am going to tell you guys everything that I was told so that you can solve it easily. [ that you can watch your full movie :(   ]

Top 5 Best Free AntiVirus

A good updated Anti Virus is extremely important to keep your computer extremely safe. There are tons of free anti virus freewares and softwares that are available in the market. But the million dollar question is are they really good ? Unfortunately, the answer is NO, at least most of the times. There are too many kinds of viruses out there. And then there are trojans, malware, adware, spyware, keylogger, worm, rootkit attacks etc etc etc. Every now and then , a new kind of virus crops up, so technically it would be very difficult for your not so updated antivirus to remove them successfully.

As we all know there are paid anti virus softwares and then there are freewares too. I have actually used both of them, in my opinion the freewares are more than enough. Fortunately for us there are good number of free antivirus softwares to choose from. However, I do not recommend you to have more than 1 installed anti virus software at the same time. This may compromise the workings of all your programs. Also, it may require additional resources.

I am going to give you a list of 5 best free antivirus softwares as per my opinion. I guess it is more than enough to choose from.
