Windows Mail is giving me problems

Q: Windows Mail is giving me problems

Hello all,

I used to use incredimail until I got a new computer with Vista on it. I installed incredimail, and used it (kind of) until I found out it wasn't compatible with Vista, and then uninstalled. I switched over to Windows Mail and have a question.

First off, I HATE IT. I know im a nerd, but I love all the little icons and themes that incredimail has...and windows mail appears to have none of. Well...to the question...

I set up my account, and email works just fine, but there is a problem with attachments. I can receive (for instance) a pdf and save it to my computer. If I open it from its saved location, it opens up perfectly. If I click on the attachment in my email and try to open it that way, I get an error that states something like "there is no file extension set for that file. Please go into control panel and set one."

I know there is a file extension set, because I went into control panel and checked, but it has the acrobat reader icon for the file, and I can open it pefectly if it is saved to my desktop.

Does anyone have an idea why I can open the pdf files perfectly as long as it is saved to the computer, but if I try to open it from Windows Mail, it gives me that file extension error?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Windows Mail is giving me problems

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.)

A: Windows Mail is giving me problems

It has something to do with Vista's tight security. With XP, I can open PDF files either way.

Recently, I started noticing that whenever I start up my computer and open up Windows Live Mail, it'll start accessing my hard drive for a good while and, as a result of this, it will cause other things on my computer to load up longer than usual (like Dead Island, for example, will take ages to load when Windows Live Mail is reading my hard drive). Only way I can fix this is by sitting there and waiting for Windows Live Mail to finish reading my hard drive or by exiting out of Windows Live Mail via the task manager (after this my comp will load up things just fine). I did a virus scan and I am virus free.

Something is up with my Windows Live Mail and I don't know what it is. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

At first I was thinking it might be your HDD that is about to die.. But just wondering, whenever you close the windows live mail with task manager. Does that realy fix your problem? If you startup any other program. Doesn't that slow you computer down?

Ever since I installed Windows 7 and IE 9 my computer has been giving me fits. Pages and games load extremely slow and I have to refresh constantly. Windows live mail is a nightmare as it takes over 2 minutes to load an email just so that I can delete it. Can I uninstall IE 9 without causing any problems on my computer? And will it revert back to IE 8? I'm thinking that IE 9 is what is giving me such problems and I have heard that it causes a lot of problems with other programs and games. I scan and defrag all the time so I know that isn't my problem with too much junk on the computer. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,
I am using a Acer laptop with

invalid.

As far as my knowledge goes, a computer's IP Address can be found out
with this option. Can somebody give me an effective solution?

I recently noticed that the system was trying to do 7 updates every day at closedown, and found that update was giving a return code of 800736b3.

I have run SURT several times, and it doesn't seem to give any results (or should I be looking somewhere else?).

I ran sfc /scannow and extracted the results and they are in sfcdetails.txt (attached). SFC said there were some files it couldn't fix, even though sfcdetails.txt says it has fixed all of them.

CBS.zip is much too big to upload using the paperclip - is there another way?

I tried restoring to an earlier restore point, and unfortunately all the attempted updates have flushed my list of restore points - and the oldest few all give me a return code of x00000022.

Not sure if this is one problem or two...! I am reluctant to do a System Recovery as it sounds pretty drastic - help would be much appreciated!

PS Is any more info required?

I attempted to install the Netflix application on my Windows 8 laptop, and it told me there was an issue with the firewall.
 
It gave me the Error Code 5, so I fixed it with this video. The instructions within got rid of the Error 5; however, I'm now getting the following message when I attempt to start the firewall from "Services."
 

 
There reason I'm trying to start it from Services is because when I try to start the Firewall and "Use recommended settings" from settings page, it displays this, and loads for a second, and then doesn't do anything.
 

Also, I'm not sure if this is relevant or not, but when I try to start Windows Defender, it shows this.

I was like, really excited to get it, then it started giving me problems. ._.

Yesterday, the night I got it, I was playing The Sims 3, and I found that I just couldn't type a thing. Not a thing. I typed things into the box, nothing came out. Thank God for the randomize name feature or I wouldn't have been able to name my Sims. Clicking was okay, and I restarted, haven't had this problem since.

Then about 15 minutes ago, I was happily playing The Sims 3 again, and browsing the web on Firefox, when suddenly my cursor froze. I looked down, and the red light was on. I tried using the arrow keys to scroll down the page, but it gave me a beep. I restarted and it worked fine again.

Five minutes later, the same thing happened, only that I could use my arrow keys to scroll, not like the first time.

Also, one more thing. When I refresh the page in any browser, it sends me straight back to my home page (Google). Is this a feature of Windows 7, or a bug? I'm not really sure since I've been using XP all along. Help please?

I just spent the last 4 days reformatting my previously-XP computer, installing Windows 7, and setting up all my programs just the way I like them, installing new drivers for the move to Win7, dealing with new problems of moving onto Win7, and so forth. The OS acted like an angel for the first 2-3 days, and now, suddenly, it's acting like a moron.

The '3 Stooges' of problems I'm experiencing very often while it's running is that it often likes to go slow/freeze/(Not Responding)/white window, or give me a totally black screen with just the mouse pointer, or it shows me nothing but the desktop background and the mouse pointer.

As for rebooting issues, I've seen it reboot my computer on its own before, as well as being unable to boot all the way to the OS.

Last night I did a fresh Win7 "Upgrade" Repair Install, though it didn't fix these issues.

I have no idea why it acted so nice the first 2 days, not to mention those were the most intensive days, when I pushed it to its limits installing programs and drivers. Now that I've finally settled in and began my more casual work, it's acting like it has no power whatsoever. This is not the best time to act this way, after all the time and effort I put into installing and setting up everything I use. How can I whip it into shape and move on with my life, withOUT going back to XP? (as I read online that you must reformat to go from Win7 to XP, which would undo 3 days of effort)

All of a sudden tonight it decided to stop sending me emails which I knew I was to receive.

Replies from other forums as well as the sign up activation mail for this forum and another both were not received after waiting over 30 minutes with still nothing (and of course I checked the junk mail).

I tried to send an email to myself from my same hotmail and nothing.

I also tried sending several form other mails and still nothing.

HI,

I have a problem with "Windows Mail." The problem is simply this: I use two web-based emails (Yahoo and Earthlink). In both cases, I must keep my emails on-line for a long time -several years. I need to have portable access to them even when I am away from my computer. I can't be alone in this.

Yet I also want to use the Windows Mail successor to Outlook. I can't figure out an intelligent way to use this program with my needs. Because I keep email on the servers, each time I download the new emails I copy the older ones first. I now have three sets of copies of the older emails, which I then have to manually delete from Windows Mail. There must be a better way!

First, is it possible to download messages from most recent to older, so that I can stop the downloading when it gets to mail I already have downloaded?

Second is it possible to put a 'range' of time that I want to download mail (i.e. backwards, say until 2010 but not further)?

Third is it possible to delete the multiple copies of emails on Web Mail that I have so that I do not have the duplicates, but do not have to remove them -very laboriously- by going through my entire folder on Web Mail? Is there some automatic way to do this or is there a program or function I can use?
Thank You,

Hello Guys,
My system:

64 bit Windows 8.1
I am at the end of my rope. I have tried everything. First, let me say I am not good at technical things on a computer, just enough to be dangerous. So if some things I say seem crazy, they probably are.  So here is the story. About a week ago I received a email on my go daddy webmail.  www.login.securserver.net. That is how I long into that email. Now, that is not my main email. My main email is gmail, which I use the most.
The email I received on the go daddy email was a Notice of Apperance in Court #00406341. It contained a zip file,  Court Notification 00406341.zip.   Of course being stupid, I unzipped the file, thinking it was something important, since I have some court cases ongoing for business.
With research  I think it is a Kuluoz or another one that starts with  A.  cant remember.
It put a zip file in my downloads folder  Court_Notification_00406341.doc, which shows as File Type: Java Script file, 8.84kb.  That is the only one I noticed, not sure if they are more somewhere.  Then things started getting a little weird. Nothing major, I still get emails, still send them, and my system seems to be running normally, except for Avast Mail Shield security exclusions ,  It keeps poping up at least 40 times a day, saying

Short Question: Is there any possible way to use Mail Merge in Microsoft Office 2007 with Windows Live Mail?

Notes: Using Windows 7 computer. Windows Live Mail is being used as a program to send the emails out. Microsoft Excell is used to supply the email addresses. It is not an address book problem.

If it is possible to use Mail Merge through WLM, then my next question is:



Long Question: How do I fix my problem?I am using Microsoft Word 2007 to open a short document (.doc).
I am using a Microsoft Excell 2007 spreadsheet (.xlsx) as a database for names and email addresses. [I have tried both .docx and .xls and all combinations of the 4 to try to fix this. None seemed to work, so I reverted to the files' original extensions.]
I go through the Mail Merge steps without any issues. I can see the document. I can see where the merged names will be inserted. I can preview individual letters to see the names inserted correctly. I can also manage the contacts - and select which emails the Mail Merge should be sent to.
As a test, I select only my name. I send out the Mail Merge to the emails as all 3 format options with the subject of "test".

Hi all,

I recently installed a plug and play Ethernet adapter into my pc which is Win7. I am trying to LAN with a windows XP pc (which previously worked with my onboard adapter).

When I view the status of the Local area connection, it shows that there are packets being sent and received to and from both pcs. But I CANNOT see the win XP pc in my network as I am not on the existing network with it?

A:LAN giving problems?

what you mean you can not see?
can you ping the other pc?
is firewall configured and network detection and file sharing on?
if you type "\\[computername]" (or ip) does it work?
does they have good ip configuration?

Hi, i have some problem with my IE 7 recently.
When i surf some sites, mostly hotmail. I always get the message "object moved here". So when i click on a page, it will direct me to a page that writes "object moved here" and then i'll need to click on the word "here" before i can access my page.

Recently, i cant seem to see all the images and yes, i can't see all the smilies and icons on the post thread now, which is wierd and i get this message when i'm surfing the net at times:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address

which i find it wierd because my messenger is still able to connect and my brother's computer which uses the same connection is also able to connect but my internet just doesn't seem to be able display the webpage.

hope to hear from you soon.

A:IE 7 giving problems

Hi bearbear,

please try running IE7 without addons to see if the same happens:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
iexplore -extoff
- Click OK
- Test with a few sites to see it the same problem occurs...please bear in mind that when you run IE with no addons, some website will cease to work as normal if they depend on certain addons. Ignore any new problems, just try to concentrate on the original issue and post back your findings please.

If that doesn't give any results, it may be an idea to temporary disable your firewall for a little bit and run IE in its normal mode. Some firewalls include features which affect how webpages load and are displayed so it could be a configuration problem. Remember to re-enable your firewall when you have finished testing.

Have you previously upgraded from IE6 to version 7? If yes, did these problem used to happen previously?

First off im not the most computer savy guy in the world so any help is appreciated.

My problems is that when i type a website in the address bar of IE (www.google.com for example) i get an error message saying:

Cannot find 'www.google.com'. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.

This happens with any site i type in.

so basically im stuck doing a search for a site on msn and clicking the link, or copy/paste the address from Mozilla.

Its not a big deal because i use Mozilla, but i would really like to get this fixed.

If that doesn't work, then it may be a problem with the install of the game. Have you checked the properties of the shortcut to make sure that it actually points at the game's executable file?

My other comp was working fine, but there was a spark in the power supply but it was still working for awhile, except I'd have to fight with it to get it to turn on. So I bought a new power supply, much stronger than what it was before, changed all the memory as well.
NOW... it turns on, but the HDD doesn't spin or anything, and when it finishes loading past the bios and all that, all it shows is a black screen that says "boot error, please insert system disk and retry" and when I install my winXP cd, it loads enuff to get to the screen where i can choose to repair or install anew, and when i choose either it says that windows cannot detect a HDD.

What could the problem be ?
 

A:Second comp is giving me problems too, help !

Hard drive

your hard drive is probably ruined. You could make a reformat disk and see if you can reformat the hard drive to get it to work. But it probably was damaged by the spark. The reformat disk can be found somewhere on the internet.

Help!!

I noticed a few days ago that my computer, which is 2.6 ghz with 1 GB ram and runs windows XP, was running incredibly slowly. I ran all the virus scans I could get my hands on. Some worm or other was killed, and one of the scans detected a virus called "java-bytever.a". So, I did a search for the files infected with that virus and manually deleted them (since none of my other AV programs were detecting them). But my computer is still very slow, and what's worse, now when my Norton Antivirus runs its bi-daily scan, instead of scanning the usual 100,000 or so files, it's now scanning 2.5 million files!! And the number of files is getting higher.

According to NAV, I have a folder called "recycler" that I can't find on my computer, even with a search. Also, most of these extra hundreds of thousands of files are in:

c:\program files\Java\j2re1.4.2_03\bin

I can't access this folder even through command.com, because I keep getting a "cyclic redundancy check" error message. I can't uninstall Java because when I go into add/remove programs and select Java, it says it's "gathering info" for about 30 minutes, when it times out! And when I try to simply delete the whole folder, I get a prompt telling me that my c: drive isn't formatted and would I like to format it now!!??

I'm at my wit's end! I've tried Norton, Panda, Trent, and Bitprotector, and none of them are detecting any problems.... Read more

Hello! It's been a while since I have been on here (which is a good thing, right?). But I recently upgraded my operating system to Windows 10. Since then, I have been having some issues. I will not get into all of them for now, when I had no issues with Photobucket before, I am now.

When I go there, I do not remember how to delete an individual picture or all of them or how to create an album. Photobucket is important to me because many websites (maybe even this one) may require a URL instead of browsing and uploading a JPEG to this site this may be very important to show you what I see on my screen.

Let me give you a URL here from photobucket because I want to delete all these pics from a car that we sold.

Can anyone tell me what exactly is the problem? Is it my video card, is it the monitor itself, or is it, gulp, the motherboard?

Well, it's not the motherboard, unless your video card is built in.

Could be the monitor or the video card.

I have this really strange problem with my PC that keeps happening several times per week.

There are a handfull of my favorite sites, (GOOGLE, CBS SPORTSLINE, WEB-ATTACK and even TSG FORUMS) that when I try and go to them.... the status bar will flash a few times and then I get the page with cannot find server where they say there may be problems with the site.

When this happens.... I cannot access these sites even manually by typing in the addy..... It's ONLY these four sites that do this. This happens several times per week.

Usually, I can fix this by going into CP/add-remove programs/ and choosing the option to REPAIR IE 6. Sometimes I have to repeat the process a few times, but it will fix the prob.

This is so damn annoying. These 4 sites just happen to be the ones I visit the most, so it's a real pain to me.

I regularly clean out my temporary internet files, history etc.... and have all the spyware controllers like AD-AWARE, SPYBOT, etc... etc... and use them on a regular basis.

I have even had a laptop running along with my desktop and all 4 sites load just fine..... so there is no trouble with the sites.

Any educated guesses as to what may be happening here? Why only these 4 sites, and why can I fix it most of the time by repairing IE6? And... most importantly, how can I fix it PERMANENTLY? because it's driving me nuts to have to fix it all the time.

Thanks in advance

I am beyond the veil of anger with this. I believe something is wrong with my DirectX 11 on Windows 8.1, and I don't know how to fix it. I would go to play certain games, and it would pop up an error message saying "Cannot Set Display Mode" or something similar to that. I get the feeling it's DirectX, as I had recently updated it, but did nothing to interfere. I have spent the last week (literally) trying to fix this, and everything has failed. I understand that DirectX 11 comes with Windows 8 and everything, but when Windows doesn't even realize that it's malfunctioning (DXDiag did not work, nor did the thousands of Runtime Installers I tried), something is definitely wrong. I would appreciate any help at this point. Thanks in advance.

Recheck/reinstall or update drivers, a lot of interaction between drivers and DirectX goes in there. Some older games do not like or recognize new DirectX. Try to run them in compatibility mode.

Recently i bought a new Pentium Core 2 Duo 1.86 Ghz processor with 2 gb ram with 160 gb 7000 rpm SeaGate hard-disk and original Intel Motherboard.

The problem is that when i installed coreldraw 11 and while saving a file it showed 'File Copy Error. TEMP drive or output drive may be full' C Drive has a 40 gb partition wtih progs using 7 gb of space. Also when writing a cd with roxio 6.0 the machine hangs. What could possibly be the error.

PS : Virus Scan yielded no viruses.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but, about 2 months ago I received an update for Java. I downloaded it as usual but it seems it never quite downloaded properly. Since then I am constantly getting a message to download and that my Java is unsecured. I don't know if I have a virus (my bit defender and mawarebytes don't show anything) or whats going on. My computer is running very slowly and always asks to close the window. I believe it could be a memory issue but not sure.

A:Java giving me problems

Unless you regularly go to a website that uses Java, I suggest you follow the directions at this link and uninstall it. There have been security issues recently with Java and it is rarely used by most websites. There may be a few games that use it but most users don't need Java and it seems to be a nuisance.

There are only two options for Picasa to scan for pictures - My Documents or the entire drive. Is there no way to select a specific partition where the pictures of interest are?2.

Bottom line: upload fails, so obviously the URL link can't exist.I signed out from Google Account (in the upper right corner) and tried to sign back in, as this is what Help suggests, but I get a blank window to Login, which subsequently says that I'm not connected to the internet which is not correct. TCPview clearly shows and established connection all along. Hmm, maybe it is correct once I logged out.I tried every possible way to Upload, Bulk upload, Share, even Sync, whatever I could find - all with identical results.I'm ready to ditch it and try to find something that allows me to easily drag'n drop out of any directory I please, without all that local scanning, and that allows easy viewing for others to whom I send a link.But I thought I'd ask here first. I didn't find anything in tutorials here. And Google hel... Read more
