Switching Off "Advanced Network Error Search"

Hi,

I've found plenty of people saying they can't switch off "Advanced Network Error Search" themselves because the specific page to do this is down...

Also seen a few posts where admin are able to sort this for people. I did speak to some on the phone at Virgin on the phone, who didn't really know how to go about this - and attempted to read instructions, but no joy.

This feature is stopping me logging onto a work network/VPN and I need to get it sorted ASAP.

Can anyone help please?

Re: Advanced Network Error Search (ANES) opt out - issues

Recently i have had a problem with virgin hijacking a web search for my favourite web sites.

I have contacted this web site owner and they have told me their website is active.

I need to access this because a have an active account with them.

I think that opting out of ANES will solve this problem.

I am not techno savvy so most techno speak can baffle me. 

I have tried to do this on the virgin page that hijacks my Google search but it says unable to do what I asked it to do (I think to turn it off).

I do not need nor do I want a virgin media browser.

If you could solve this I would be grateful

Many thanks

VM instructions to turn off their ANES "service" are here: https://help.virginmedia.com/system/templates/selfservice/vm/help/customer/locale/en-GB/portal/20030...

Quote: "To turn off Advanced Network Error Search, just give us a call on 150 from your Virgin Media phone or mobile, or 0345 454 1111* from any other phone, and select option 2."

Unfortunately the VM Help Desk telephone representatives seem to be unaware of this instruction, and in most cases totally unaware of the procedure to implement it.

Alternatively you could change the settings on your local machine to use a different DNS service. (It's not possible to change this on your router.) http://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-change-dns-settings-in-windows-7-vista

You may have to wait for a forum staff member to assist you in this but you will have to be patient, it may take over a week for one of them to pick up your post.

Re: Advanced search

CAN YOU PLEASE TURN OFF MY ADVANCED NETWORK SEARCH AND EXPLAIN WHY YOUR LINK TO DO SO IS INVALID..

THIS IS ATROCIOUS BEHAVIOR. HOW MANY CUSTOMERS NEED TO COMPLAIN TO FIX THIS?

(No,  I don't usually post using upper case)
