    My brother has an LG smart phone and was trying to get on the internet on his computer (Windows 7) through his phone but he forgot how he did it. He walked away for a few minutes then when he came back there was a message on the computer screen saying "Hi this is Windows and we see that you were having problems connecting to a network so we fixed it for you". And he was on the net, is that normal for windows or is it that someone got into his phone or whatever? I know micrsoft wont do such a thing but windows?

    First, can i ask why your going to connect to the internet via phone?

    next: tall me is i'm right - he was trying to get online, failed and went to the store or something came back and was connected?
    and now your asking if its normal for computers to automagicly fix problems like networking issues?
