    well this is my first time on the forum so im not sure this is the right section (hopefully it is), well I just want to ask a question, what is a service provider ive allready checked this on wikipedia but i dont think i really understood the information.

    As i mentioned at the start im not sure if this is the right section but unless it is about the Internet (which i think it does) thanks in advance.. :confused:

    Serak, I beleive you are referring to an ISP or Internet Service Provider. You can Wiki that and get a nice long explanation I'm sure :), but basically, and ISP does just that: provides internet service to customers. ISP's can provide internet access through DSL, Cable, Dial-Up, and Satillite, for example. Hope this points you in the right direction, and Welcome :)

    What Dan the McMan said is the right answer. No need to look up on Wiki :)

    Service Provider is the company that provides your service. One would assume that you are talking about Internet Service Provider because you are in a Network forum :)

    What sparked your curiosity for this question?

    hehe it was just a random pop-up that said ive done an illeagal act and it had contacted the Service Provider xD

    I HATE POP-UPS!

    So to answear the question, just of curiousity(spelling?)!

    EDIT: oh found a spyware might have been the cause of the pop up!

    thanks for the great help, and a good start at the forums ^^
