    i bought a new computer about a week ago. it is a windows7 home premium- model# h8-1124. i have had a magic jack for two years in a different computer. so when i put it in the new computer it woirked fine for a few days. but after that the majicjack stopped working,cannot make or recieve calls and although my internet connections work fine to other nwtworks, i cannot access the majic network for help. somehow it became incompatible with my pc. i already tried removing norton to see if it would help, but no luck

    The problem I have with it is it will reset the USB device
    usually for 3 restarts of the computer.
    After that,for some reason it doesn't reset.
    This is not really a fix as I don't think there is one yet.
    Really just a work around.
    With the computer booted to the desktop,unplug your
    magicjack for 10 seconds,then plug it back in.
    It should reset and start up.
    The problem is that windows 7 sees it as an unknown
    device after a few boots.
    Reseting it allows it to be recognized again for a few boots.
    When it does it again,just unplug it for 10 seconds again
    and plug it back in.
