Over the past week or so i have been having problems with my internet just not working for short periods of times like one minute it will be fine next few minutes i can;t go on any sites, however there are 3 people in my household also using the internet and they have not experienced any problems at all, just me. The router is connected to my computer aswell just in case you want to know. So the problems so far is i've been noticing a disappearing icon on my taskbar , it is a blue square background with a white x in the middle, usually when i try to mouse over it , it disappears today i was able to finally mouse over it during one of my internet disconnect episodes and it had the code "XIGNCODE3 49176". Can anyone please shed some light on this for me, it would be much appreciated.

If you Goolge the code it appears to have something to do with a game cheat.

Hi isimmonn :)

XIGNCODE3 is a client used by online games to prevent cheating (a bit like Counter Strike have). Here:


It looks like it's coming from one of the game you are playing online.
