Resetting the password for a Comcast Business Router
I needed to reset the password on a Cisco router provided by Comcast for
Internet service for a local business, since I needed to update firewall rules
in the router, but when I tried what I thought was the password it didn't
work. The model number for the Cisco router was DPC3941B (the model number
is on the bottom of the router). I also needed to reconfigure the subnet
used by the router for the Local Area Network (LAN) after resetting the
router, since the computers on the LAN were using IP addresses from a
192.168.0.0/24 subnet rather than the 10.1.10.0/24 subnet used as the
default one for the router.

Turning off McAfee AntiVirus Plus realtime protection temporarily
To temporarily turn off the realtime antivirus protection in McAfee
AntiVirus Plus, e.g., so you could move a file to another system for analysis
that it might deem malware or to scan the system with other antivirus
software, you can take the following steps:
Open the program and click on the gear (cog) icon at the upper, right-hand
corner of the window.
Under the PC Security section of the Settings, you will
see "Real-Time Scanning." When you click on "Real-Time Scanning" you will
have the option of turning off the real-time monitoring for 15 minute intervals
from 15 to 60 minutes or you can select "When I restart my PC" or "Never."
If you select a timed option, the protection will automatically turn back
on after that period of time. You can also turn on protection again
prior to that time by modifying the "Real-Time Scanning" setting again.
If you wish to view or restore items McAfee AntiVirus Plus has quarantined,
you can click on "Quarantined items" under Settings, which will show
you all files in the quarantine area, if any.
Note: these steps were tested on McAfee® AntiVirus Plus version 16.0
