Q: What software automatically generates a list of all books written by an author?

I'm looking for a software that let me input the list of books I have[Author - Title], generates a list of all books written by the author and diffrentiates between the books I have and the ones I don't. The software I've seen only lets me work with books that I have and doesn't list out books that I don't have by the same author.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Some time ago I posted a thread about software to compile DVDs. It was suggested back then that I try DVDFlick. I typically grab a movie, watch it from my hard disk and burn it to DVD and put it away. More often, I use DVD for compiling a season's worth of a serial, like two and a half men for example.

DVDFLick has an inherent problem that the audio sync wanders off. It is well documented and discussed at length on the DVDFlick and other forums.

So my question is this - Is there are free software program available that anyone knows of? It would need to support multiple formats like AVI, MP4, MKV, FLV etc. and be able to generate menus and chapters.

The ability to burn single and dual layers DVDs would be a bonus.

I've spent hours seachin g the net for such a program - a single step simple to use program - but haven't found anything.

I have an older program on my computer called "Med Journal" that has several years of my health records on it. The password and/or user ID that I have won't open the program. (I am not asking how to discover the password and/or user ID.) When I open the program, there is a message that states, "If you have lost your login/password, please contact the author for help." However, there is no name of the author given nor how to contact him/her. Does anyone know of a website that would help me discover the author of this program?

With all the damned problems with authorship and ownership and sharing in Windows 7, is there some kind of program that tweaks the settings for you or is an easier way to set everything to be allowed? My computer is a one user computer and I am not worried about anything having 'authorization'. I already turned off everything and checked everything and I still have issues. Is there some program out there for Win 7 that maybe resets everything or simplifies this erroneous setup that Windows 7 has? Sure ...many of you will argue that it is innovative, secure....etc. Um, no it's NOT! Lol... No one is getting onto my router and getting into my files, so what can i do in a simple step by step to make myself open enough to be able to delete whatever I want off my own desktop? Thanks!

Windows 7 Ultimate/32bit. iTunes 9.0
Each time I dock my iPhone, I get a pop-up message "device driver software was not installed successfully". I want to stop this message appearing.
In fact, Windows 7 *is* locating the correct USBAAPL driver (which is seen to load in Device Manager) and iTunes works fine.
However, since the detail on the error message relates to "MTP USB device" it seems that Windows is triggering the error too soon.
I recently reinstalled Windows 7 from scratch and latest iTunes etc (for other reasons) but this problem remains.
If I delete the driver then the default that Windows looks for is the MTP driver (which fails) and then I manually point it to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers and it reinstalls the USBAAPL driver it had before.

A:Plugging in iPhone generates "device driver software was not installed successfully" message

Try go to Device Manager, if there is any “Unknown MTP device”, uninstall it,  then plug in your iPhone and scan for hardware changes to let Windows Update automatically find and install the correct driver.

I've assumed that recently opened files were automatically added to the jump lists on the Start Menu. That's because that's the way Windows 7 has always behaved for me on multiple machines.

I did a clean install of 7 on my laptop and now some files are automatically added to the jump list and some are not. For instance, all Notepad and Word files I open appear on the jump list.

Some Excel files I open do appear on the Excel jump list and some do not. It happens that the Excel files that are not added are opened from my Dropbox folder (but I do not know if the issue happens ONLY from the Dropbox folder).

However, files of other types (Word, Notepad) that I open from the Dropbox folder do get added to their respective applications' jump lists.

So, how do I get any file I open to be automatically added to the jump list?

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread area. This software being installed relates to security, so I figured it'd be a good spot to start.

Is there an easy way to determine what initiated an install for a piece of software? I have a good handful of computers that continuously are getting Microsoft Virtual C++ 2005 installed on it every night, if uninstalled the day before. It happens every
night pretty much like clockwork - at 12:27 AM EST that I can tell on the computers I checked, give or take a minute or two.

Things I've checked:

Task Scheduler - Nothing in here.GPO - Only applying to a bit under half of our PCs all in the same OU. Determined it most likely isn't GPO based on this fact.Scheduled install from something like a software pusher - Not that we can tell, but there would be so many to go through it would be difficult to determine 100%.Windows Updates - I don't see anything in there downloading/installing vcredit.msi

When looking at Event Viewer, I do see the install is kicked off by Security ID S-1-5-18, which is Microsoft's Local System account. I'm not sure about on all computers, but the one I'm looking at now shows the installer ran from C:\Windows\TEMP\IXP000.tmp\vcredit.msi.
Event ID 3096. I believe the IXP000.tmp is literally a temp folder created as some sort of process when it is being downloaded/installed, as it is not there after going on the computer and browsing to that directory.

I'm searching for a to-do list software. I've searched on Google, but I haven't found what I was looking after.

Taskwise is the program that's nearest to what I'm searching for. Like how it looks, but it lacks some details I need.

The program I'm searching for is:
* Simple, clean and good looking
* Easy to navigate
* I want to be able to create tasks in the program and then choose them from a pull down list, instead of writing every task each time I want to do the it.
I vacuum every day, wash the dishes serveral times a week etc, for example. Besides that I makes it easier for me to use the program if I can choose easch task from a pull down list, I also want to keep statistics / track over how many times a week or a month I do the dishes or vacuum.

I'm willing to pay for a program like I described.

Hi guys,

First post here.
I need help to close a software automatically after it's not used for some time. Not Windows idle, but that particular software. Let's say I open a software and work it with. Then I switch to other software without closing it. After 10 mins not using it, I want it to automatically close.
The reason I want to do this is because the license is concurrent, and I want it to close so other users can use it.
My initial idea is to use task scheduler. But it seems that the only option is to trigger the task when the computer is idle. Not that specific software.

Can anyone suggest an idea?

Using Windows XP

When I load/import any picture into my computer, such as a jpeg, it is immediately changed to Microsoft Picture It!, a software on my computer. I don't want the computer to do this. To remedy this, I was told to right click on the Microsoft Picture It! icon for any picture, then click on Open With and make the change.

This does not really solve the problem because after clicking on Open With, it simply lists the various programs available to open the picture. I want the picture to be left as is, i.e., if it comes in as funny clown.jpeg, I want it to remain as funny clown.jpeg. The list after Open With does not give a option to leave the picture as is.

I have a small utility that I need to run at startup, but it has a password.

I have dragged the utility to the startup folder, so that part is fine for when Windows 7 boots, but does anyone know how to have the password input as the software starts, though?



A:Automatically Start Software with Password

It would be helpful to know the specific software in question and if it supports command line switches.
If it does it may be possible to alter the shortcut to say something to the effect of C:\program folder\program.exe /password

It would depend on whether the program in question supports this kind of switching though.
Or you could just blank out the password altogether if you just plan on giving anyone that boots the machine access to it anyway.

I develop software for my day job but in my free time I like to work on projects of my own. One of my recent projects has been ListIt - an application that aims to make it easy and intuitive to create shopping lists. As you use it, it will build up a repository of items that can be dragged and dropped to create a shopping list. So, the more you use it, the quicker it becomes to create your lists.

If you'd like to try it, you can find more information and download the latest version for free from: http://www.listitsimple.com.

I hope you find it useful and any feedback is welcome.


A:Shopping List Software

Interesting sort of idea. I've just glanced through it, and I have a few suggestions.

The process of changing the quantity is slightly unwieldy and I think it would be helpful to have an "Add Multiple to List" entry in the right click menu. It would also help if multiple double clicks of an entry simply raised the quantity of the first instance: Hence 3 Pizza rather than 1 Pizza 1 Pizza 1 Pizza. On a related note if you want to provide an option to change the default quantity, consider allowing that to be changed per item. An average sized family might habitually buy 4 cokes at a time, but would be unlikely to buy more than one bathroom scale.
