Preferred Solution: send a link function doesn't work

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.)

I have the latest update for Firefox. I am running WinXP sp2. If I want to send a link to a web page in Firefox, nothing happens. In IE it works fine. Firefox is my default browser. I do not have this problem on my laptop.

I notice that Gmail is the email program that Firefox goes to when I used the email program! I want OE to be my default email program.

Please advise and thank you.


A:Send Link doesn't work in Firefox

Are you sure OE is set as your default email application?

To make it your default go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Set Program Access and Defaults (bottom button, on the left sidebar) > Custom
Under "Choose a default email program," choose "Outlook Express."

IE8 "Send Link (and Pictures) by Email" Function No Longer Works.

I have had this issue using other Operating Systems as well. I've had this issue using Firefox as well as different versions of Outlook (Express, Mail and now 2007)

I believe the IE/Outlook link gets broken after I ran ASC (Advanced System Care).

Is this an Internet Explorer issue or an issue with Outlook ?

How do I fix this issue ?

A:IE8 "Send Link by Email" Function No Longer Works...

Since you mentioned that you used advanced system care, I think that is causing the problem, turn it off. I would not use it in the future.

The only protection that you need, and toavoid many problems, is Microsoft Security Essentials. and Malwarebytes.You do not need anything else.

Just use the protection I have named and do the routine, easy maintenace.

If you need help just ask.

Hello to all. I know sure the problem I'm about to describe has been discussed on this forum because I've been researching possible solutions tonight for over 2 hrs without success. In short, have a new computer with Vista Home Premium which seemed to be working fine. Only had this rig a couple days so how much could go wrong right? WRONG! All seemed well until I tried to send a link by email...... and nothing happened. So I tried again with same results. I ended up trying to open Outlook but it wouldn't respond either but WOULD work fine again if I restarted the computer. From my research on this forum and others I believe Vista for some reason Vista is refusing to recognize Outook2007 as my default email client, EVEN THOUGH I HAVE REPEATEDLY GONE INTO 'SET PROGRAM ACCESS AND COMPUTER DEFAULTS' AND MADE BOTH IE7 AND MS OFFICE 2007 DEFAULT PROGRAMS. I HAVE ALSO REPEATEDLY GONE INTO 'SET YOUR DEFAULT PROGRAMS' AND MADE IE7 AND MS OUTLOOK 2007 DEFAULT PROGRAMS THERE AS WELL, MAKING SURE EACH PROGRAM ALSO HAD ALL OF ITS DEFAULTS CHECKED. I also went into IE7 internet options and set up both IE7 and Outlook 2007 as default programs there as well and even went in under the 'advanced' tab and reset IE settings, losing some cookies in the process. NONE OF THIS HAS HELPED! I'm stumped and frustrated. I suspect there's a problem with the registry but just a guess. I could sure use some help with this! Thanks in advance!

Open Explorer and go to the Windows\Inf folder.
Locate the srchasst.inf file. Right click it and select Install.

The Windows\Inf folder is a hidden folder. You can adjust your Explorer Folder Options (View tab) to Show hidden files and folders.

Uncheck ?Hide protected system files?

You can also click Start, Run and enter %SystemRoot%\Inf to open directly to the Inf folder.

Coz I have turned off many services , but that was a long time ago, this started happening recently

A:Search function doesn't work now

Have you checked to see if the search function works in SafeMode?

Have you installed any updates to the current software like your AV program for instance?

Anyway, the first thing I'd try would be to run SFC from a command prompt within Windows XP and see what happens

sfc /scannow

BTW, in reference to the services, I doubt that's an issue. Windows XP will start a service if it's needed, regardless of whether you've disabled it.

I have about 600 gigs of storage space and windows search doesn’t work so I’m a bit frustrated at this problem.

When I run windows search function I get 2-3 recently created files and nothing else. The process of getting these results take less than a second sometimes and it doesn’t comb threw my folder structure the way it used to. I have indexing on and I’ve had indexing off but this does not effect the results. I’m not sure when this problem first popped up but I assume it was about 4-5 months ago when my step dad changed my network settings because of some bad advice from some tech support who didn’t know what kind of system I had.

I’ve tried using “Windows Desktop Search” and that didn’t work either so I uninstalled that. I don’t want to use 3rd party search programs just because the windows search has worked fine for me so far with the exception to this. Any help is appreciated

I recently upgraded my 3 computers to Windows 8.1. Only 1 PC (INTEL) is working as it should. The other 2 PC's are AMD based and the search function is acting funny. When I search it gives my the results, but when I click on says I'm looking for DEVICES AND PRINTERS and I search "printers", it gives my the result. If I click on DEVICES AND PRINTERS tab it doesn't respond, but when I click on say my Canon printer's link to MY PRINTER it responds. I ran SFC/SCANNOW and also DISM (Micorsoft actually ran it) and nothing changed. It sometimes locks me onto the Meto screen and I have to reset the PC to get back to my normal Desktop. When it does that non of the Metro tiles works. Micorsoft technician also tried to create a new user account which comes out blank and when creating another account, as soon as you log into the account it immediately signs out of it and don't allow you access. I tried to refresh the pc, but the frustrating part is, it asks you to choose a keyboard layout, but disables all USB and PS ports. Now how do I choose a keyboard layout, unless I have a touch screen. Microsoft really didn't think this trough. Is there anybody that perhaps now how to get the searh to work. Oh I do have searchindex.exe in my system32 folder and in services I stop and restarted Windows Search, but still no change.

A:Search function in Windows 8.1 doesn't work as it should

Problem solved. After Microsoft technicians tried everything and my PC crashed I decided to just redo. Then I found out that a program called Wisecare 365 that I was running on my Windows 8 PC caused all the problems. It went and deleted registry and other files that windows 8.1 need to operate with. So it's no longer on my PC and so far Windows 8.1 is running fine.

I can't use or run "restore" anymore on XP machine. I have no idea what happened. I don't seem to have any other problems.


A:Restore function doesn't work anymore

It sounds as if System Restore may have become corrupted. You can try reinstalling the feature. Here's how:In Control Panel or Windows Explorer, click Folder Options and then View tab
Under Advanced Settings, scroll down and find "Show hdden files and folder." Check the box.
Find "Hide extensions for known files types." Uncheck that box. Click Apply, OK.
In Windows Explorer, find your Windows folder (usually on the C: drive but not always). Navigate to the inf folder and open it.
Find a file named sr.inf
Right click the file and select Install.

Important: This creates a new installation of System Restore, but it will delete any restore points that you had created previously.

kind regards,

I've had this problem for quite some time and I think its about time I tried to sort it out.
I have a Toshiba satellite Laptop running windows XP and the latest WMP is my preferred media player.

About a year ago I had a Virus on this laptop that wouldn't allow me to connect to the internet. A friend took me through the steps in the security and the web part of this board and we dealt with the virus.

Ever since the play all function in windows that appears when you have media files in a folder has not worked. When I click play all I see the hour glass briefly but then nothing happens. If I try to select the files I want to play right click and then play all again nothing happens.

I don't get any warning or error messages, its as if the computer is ignoring my request

double clicking on a single file opens it in WMP normally.

I don't know if it is related but when this happened the quick media buttons on the laptop which allowed me to open WMP, play, pause, stop and select next track also stopped working and still don't.

Thanks for your help.

A:Play all function doesn't work for music or video files

To fix the file playing issue, try reinstalling WMP.

The buttons need special software installed and running. Try downloading it from Toshiba and reinstalling.

Recently I've come across a situation where my computer will boot with no keyboard function. I cannot enter bios, boot in safe mode, etc. However, upon Windows 7 loading I have full function of the mouse. That is until I hit any key on the keyboard, then I lose left click function only. I can still move the mouse, I can still right click with the mouse. I also noticed that caps lock and number lock did not work either.

I figured that maybe the keyboard was bad and so I plugged in a different brand new keyboard and booted up the computer. Everything worked fine. The keyboard worked flawlessly, the mouse had no problems at all.

Restarted the computer to install windows updates, and upon the next boot I once again was left with no keyboard function and then once again no left click function.

These problems only began after a program was uninstalled due to it freezing up during use. (The program was a puzzle game that was purchased and installed from a reputable game website)

I am at a complete loss, and I cannot tell if this is a hardware problem or a software problem or even a virus problem.

Both the mouse and keyboard are USB. Other USB devices work fine, including a headset, a printer, and a scanner.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hi all. I've purchased an upgrade to a graphics prog.(Xara3D). On my Xara account site is a link to download the file. I've tried the link with 3 different systems. First system is running Windows 98SE, IE 6 and Opera 9. Second system is WindowsXP Home Premium with IE 6. I've tried to download the file(xara3d.exe) from both machines and browsers, with and without firewall/antivirus, also with every setting for cookies and popups(no proxy is involved). My ISP is a local provider(Southnet.net). Everytime I try the download, I get the infamous 'Cannot find server' & 'This page cannot be displayed'. I don't have any problem downloading anything else. The third system is Windows XP Home with IE 6 which belongs to my brother.His ISP is Bellsouth.net. From his machine, the file was available and downloadable. We then came back to my machines(both) and he logged into his Bellsouth account and tried the download on both my systems. Both worked fine. The file was able to be downloaded as normal. I called my ISP to see if he could explain the situation but couldn't. He said there weren't any restrictions on my account so he didn't think the problem was Southnet.
Sorry for the long discourse. Hope someone can offer a bit of advice. TIA, RAS

I have a Gateway PC, 5 or so years old, running Windows XP Media Edition.

A few days ago, soon after having installed some Windows updates, my wireless Microsoft mouse and keyboard stopped working. I plugged in a spare PS/2 mouse, and in the bluetooth dialog box removed, added, and reconnected both components. The wireless mouse and keyboard worked, but not for long. I then uninstalled and attempted to reinstall the mouse and keyboard software (except that the software apparently had not uninstalled). This did not fix the problem.

From here on I tried so many things, I do not recall in what order. I did a system restore via Advanced System Care, then tried again using a much earlier date. After a very long wait I was informed that my system could not be restored to that date.

I ran Reimage, which reported a moderately severe stability problem with numerous crashes. This program fixed and replaced files, etc, but got stuck while attempting to reinstall Windows updates (during repairs, Reimage removes Windows updates and reinstalls them afterward, but for some reason this last step has never worked with my computer and I've had to reinstall the updates manually). The computer was frozen and I was forced to turn it off using the power button. When I turned the computer back on, I had no working keyboard or mouse, and again had to use the power button to turn off the computer.

okay im at UNL in a college dorm and i'm trying to network my room. I know it's possible because my neighbors have routers in their rooms but for some reason theirs work perfectly and mine does not. I have a D-Link 4300 GameFuel router which worked at my house perfectly. I currently use ethernet cables to hook up to my laptops, and it works perfectly. However, when I set up my router, my computer can detect it and can connect to it, but whenever I try to surf to a website, it says "Page cannot be displayed" because I can't (for some reason) get internet through the router

It doesn't work if I connect directly to the router or if I use it wirelessly. I've tried it with and without a password (WEP, WPA) and still, no progress. What else is there to do? I've reset the router over a dozen times to the default settings and nothing seems to work. It's driving me nuts.

If there was an item with a sublisting, like Microsoft office a down symbol would appear. Click on that and the sublisting would appear and I could select word, excel, etc. Now when I click on the down symbol it just flips to an up symbol ^ and no sub menu appears. I'd really like to get to excel. This failure to bring up a sub menu happens for every down symbol, not just Microsoft office. What do I do? Try to re-load Windows 10? Uninstall and reinstall Office? Thanks

A:"All Apps" function doesn't work properly

Hi, do you have any idea what happened yesterday? For example, if you look at your update history- did you receive an update?

Do you have System Restore on, and do you have any useful restore points?

Do you use system imaging (Windows Backup and Restore) or disk imaging which we keep strongly recommending here; that means you can restore an image previously created and get your Windows back running as was without technical help - and even recover from a disk failure or an unbootable PC? (e.g. Macrium reflect (free)).

Those could give you ways to recover.

What is your build version? (Windows key + R, winver).

If you haven't started using those vital recovery methods yet, you could try this:

When I try to send a link it will not send. I am using the "send" under file. I believe it is programmed wrong. It goes to people pc .com which I do not have. OR it tries to use POP3 which I have also deleted since I do not want dial up . How do I reprogram it so it will work properly so I can send links and or pages.
Thank you

A:Please help SEND (under file) for link/pages not able to send

Hi norvinclevelad

. . . and Welcome to the Tech Support Forums.

Did you at some previous time use PeoplePC and a dial-up connection? You may just need to visit "Internet Options" in your Control Panel & check the settings under the "Connection" and "Programs" tabs.

Should that not work, you could also try a repair of IE http://www.theeldergeek.com/repair_ie6.htm --- which has a fair promise of restoring the default behaviors.

Best of luck

Howdy, folks.
I right click a link (.lnk), click Properties, then click "Find Target" and instead of folder with the target opening an Open With box opens. It has several programs suggested, but not explorer.exe. I have to browse for explorer.exe.

How do I fix this problem?
