      I forwarded the e-mails to abuse@google.com.  I found an option in cox.net that marks e-mails as spam.   I will use this often.  Thanks

      I found Disk Cleanup going into Properties for the Disk I want.  I don’t believe it will work on my C: on SSD.

      Thanks for information.

      I don’t plan on cleaning the Register.  I have Treesize Free which is informative. I does not have an option to cleanup old data. Are you referring to an application(Disk Cleanup) or something in Operating system?

      MagicJack support is poor. I have talked to them on this issue. They suggested I use another

      power device from a cellular phone.  Not to bright if I wanted to charge the phone. I don’t happen to have one anyway.

      This weekend we received 2 calls which usually have a problem. The computer was off and

      the connection was good on both. One of the calls we receive every Sunday and it has a LOT

      of problems.  This Sunday it was good.  I can’t figure why the computer and phones would interfere with each other.  Could it be something with a router setting?

      <h3>I have AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router and Windows 7 Professional 64bit.</h3>
      My wife’s computer is connected WI-FI.  We are setup at 2.4ghz. 5ghz is available.

      I have no way of total them as they are spread out across my folders.

      Is there a utility that would total them by c: ?

      That would hide them, but would not gain any space on my SSD.

      You are correct as usual.  Cox won’t replace it so I am just going to forget it.

      I give up. I am going to put the Arris SB6121 back.  I don’t know when I would need DOCSIS 3.1.  Thanks for all the suggestions and information.

      Thank you PaulK for the information.  I will finally call Cox Tech and see if they will replace it for free.  If not then I will live with it.

      Reset did nothing.  dslreports was unable to help. If Cox has turned off access to the firmware, I wonder if it is software.  If software, I wonder if anyone has worked around it?

      As I mentioned, the front panel only has the receive light on as blue(DOCSIS 3.1). Online is indicated by a flashing light where the router and modem are connected in the back.  Is it possible Windows 7 Pro 64bit needs a setting for the DOCSIS 3.1 modem setting(Yes I am reaching).

      Strange.  I just noticed that the lights on the CM8200 ONLY has the receive light on(solid blue).  I would expect to see Power and Online lit.

      I went ahead and connected the computer directly to the modem and as expected there was NO REACTION.

      My router and modem are separate. I just tried a reboot with no change.  The modem came from COX for free.  I assume it is to allow DOCSIS 3.1.

      I thought about a reset, but because it came from COX and IS NOT supported by ARRIS, I don’t know what COX may have done to the settings. This is why I am trying to look into the settings. CURIOSITY only at this time.
