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 found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only.
Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?

A:Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8

Yes it is. But if you want the pc just buy Windows 7 and install it. Or find something with W7 installed.

Does it come with a touch screen ?

In all of my apps and even in the Run box of WINXP w/SP2, The entry cursor shows in the box, but it just ignores any data I try to enter. Since I can't enter sfc in my Run box, I can't check my OS.

Here's the situation I'm trying to resolve:
I have an application that periodically takes a series of .csv files and stuffs them into an Access table. What I'm trying to do is to have Access reject any entries with the same Primary Key (a date/time stamp), but to do so QUIETLY... That is, to NOT pop up any warning windows, etc... just fail, and trudge on....

Surely this can't be TOO difficult??

I have a document saved on my laptop(windows 98) and it was created by Microsoft Word. I wanted it on my other computer that has Windows XP. So, I just sent the file to myself as an attatchment. It was received, but when I clicked on the attatchment it would not open. There was a message saying it was "unsafe". It is a .doc file. Why does Outlook Express reject it and what can I do to move it over. I tried "save as" but it tells me the file already exists, so I can not change the type file it is, in some way, like somebody at work suggested. Thanks for advice.

Hello, all.

I have a quick question.

Right, my little brother has a laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate (x32). He also has a PS3 webcam (I forget the actual name of it). He is allowed to use this webcam on his PS3, but not on his computer. The problem is that he keeps defying the rule in place, and plugging it into his computer, and using it anyway.

My question is basically asking if I can set up some kind of policy on the laptop, to make it reject this certain piece of hardware if it is ever plugged in. I uninstalled and deleted the drivers, but that didn't stop him. My brother is not very technically skilled, so I doubt he'd be able to bypass or remove whatever rule I put in place.

I have researched this online, but come up with nothing. I'm probably not using the right keywords.

Any help is appreciated.


A:Is there a way to force Windows 7 to reject certain hardware?

Well you can disable the hardware the normal way, but he sounds resourceful enough to figure out that little trick. It might be possible to create a hardware profile that denies the use of the webcam. Though the easiest thing might be to set up a task that automatically shutdowns the system if the webcam is connected.

I don't think that would be that hard to do using the task manager.

Firstly, this is my first post to the group so please bear with me...I am NOT very technical, but I am intuitive. I don't know if anyone has had this problem but I hope someone can help.

I am running EMC 10 on Windows Vista. Every time I try to copy a non-copyrighted DVD, I can successfully get through the first stage. When prompted to insert a blank disc, I do. The tray reopens and I get this message " Insert disc...Please insert a blank disc in this drive. Possible disc types are DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DOUBLE LAYER, DVD+RW." This happens every time I try to copy a dvd using any of the copy applications. Every time! I have every type of disk suggested and have tried this using each type...no success. I've tried copying the disc to the desktop and the hard drive. This only allows me to play it on a computer, not a DVD player. Please note though,as unusual as this sounds, during the course of trying to find the problem, I was able to make a copy only once from each selection on the Roxio menu. These were "Copy DVD", "Copy Disc" and "Burn Image" When I tried a 2nd time, thinking I had it fixed, it would not let me and the same window popped up over and over again. I've spent countless hours searching all over this computer looking for some setting or way to solve this problem. I'm at the point now that I may go out and buy other software other than Roxio to see if that is where the problem lies.

I am looking to prepare a report comprised of docuemnts sent to various units of the business. All units were instructed to use 'Track Changes' in Word, and I would now like create a Macro that will only reject changes the correspond to formatting (ex. font size, spacing, etc.).

I have a macro that was created previously for similar documents, but was not properly tested on documents that had a large number of changes. Now running the macro with documents completely freezes the file and does not execute as desired. Here is the macro currently being used:

Sub FmtChanges()
Dim revFmtRev As Revision
For Each revFmtRev In ActiveDocument.Revisions
If revFmtRev.FormatDescription <> "" Then
End If
End Sub

Since there are many documents and they are all quite long (some exceed 200 pages), it would save a ton of time to use a macro such as this to complete the task.

Thanks a lot for any help you can provide!

Hi there everyone, I have a new problem that it seems nobody else has ever had as I can't find any support via google or yahoo.
As a photographer the issue is quote inhibiting.. Basically when I go to delete an image in bridge, it comes up with 'are you sure you want to send this image to the recylce bin' and I click 'yes' then it moves to the next image.. just like its supposed to BUT the image I 'deleted' has not moved from the folder.. it has not gone.
The same happens if I try to 'reject' an image. and yes I have 'show rejected images' selected.. yet just as with delete, when I try to 'reject' an image nothing happens.

* If I hit the delete button, 'do you want to reject this file or delete it?'
If I hit reject OR delete.. nothing happens.
If I hit 'control and delete' it asks me if I am sure I want to delete it.. then the fires remain.

Or what else is a possibility of blocking my emails to them? Thanks

When a message comes back undeliverable that message comes from the ISP's smtp server because it cannot find the user on the system. You sure the address is correct.

I am FED UP! I keep my passwords in a LastPass vault. I don't enter them manually. I copy and paste. Human error by me is not the problem! The problem is website and application error.

My vault says that I had to change my support.mozilla.com password in 2014. I tried to post last night. I got a password error message, so I jumped through the hoops to set a new password. The website accepted my new password. And then the very next moment when I tried to use it to log in, they give me another password error! It looks like I will have to create a new account and hope the same perversity doesn't follow me to it.

My ability to use LastPass on my default browser is limited, so I decided to bring back Sticky Password. When I did, I was shorn of my premium status, and it rejected the Master Password I had stored in two places. I am waiting for their help to set a new password.

Why can't these folks do better?

Is there any way to reject an e-mail in outlook, so that it sends the sends a reject e-mail back to the sender, making it appear to them that the address that they sent to is invalid?
I would rather do this like you can in "mail" in OS X then simply try to block spam from Outlook 2003.

A:Reject Spam mail in outlook, as in OS X Mail

There are many such applications to do this, such as MailWasher.

However, please think carefully about it.
Spammers send out spam that depends on clicking a link or on an embedded HTML code requesting an image download that registers the "hit" with an entirely different website that the one the spam originated from in 99% of cases.

They never check the original outgoing mailbox, in fact most are probably shut down by the ISP shortly after the payload was sent.

"Bouncing" the message back therefore has no effect, its not seen or noted.
All it does is chew up yet more bandwidth, for which we all indirectly pay for in ISP fees.

Mailwasher is good to allow you to view the email header and delete it from the ISP server, so it's never downloaded at all. Just don't bounce it, for everyones sake.

I recently changed ISPs and added a Netgear wireless router to the modem. I configured the modem and router useing my PC laptop, and generated a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption. I was able to successfully connect with my WEP Key on my PC and on my TiVo, but my Mac (which is a new MacBook) will not accept my WEP Key, saying there is an error in joining the network.

The dropdown menu in the AirPort window has four choices: (1) WEP Password, (2) WEP 40/128-bit hex, (3) WEP 40/128-bit ASCII and (4) LEAP. I'm assuming that since my WEP key is set to 64-bit encryption, that I should use the first option, which is what I have been trying.

I was able to connect my MacBook to my old wirelss signal, which I have not disconnected it (it's cable-based and runs from a different modem/router; my new ISP is DSL-based), and that signal also has a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption.

I also tried disabling the WEP key encryption for a time, and then I was able to secure a connection to the new signal, but I want to maintain the encryption. Please help.

Ok, I've got a dual P3 700 at work that we really can't use in it's current state at work. It's a fiery tower that was meant to be a print server from EFI . They won't even support the hardware on their website. It's got a Tyan Thunderbolt mainboard in it. They used their proprietary BIOS when they built it so you couldn't change the OS. After finally figuring out what mainboard was in there I went to Tyan's website and downloaded their version of the BIOS and flashed it. Now when I try to install 2K, I can partition the drive with no problems but it keeps telling me that I need to choose a windows 2000 compatible partition to install it on. It doesn't give me the option to format the partition in the setup. I am able to go into the recovery console and use the format command to format the partition, but it keeps giving me the same error in the setup. The hard drive is a SCSI IBM running from the onboard SCSI ultra 2. I checked all the BIOS & SCSI BIOS settings and they seem to be correct. I tried downloading the latest SCSI drivers and loading them before the install, but that doesn't make a difference either. I've also tried different partition sizes with no luck. What I don't get is why can I partition the drive and format it (in recovery console), but can't install on it? Can anyone give me any ideas on what to do? Thanks

A:Can't get Win 2K to accept partitions

Have you tried formatting with Partition Magic? I use version 8 to partition all custom systems that I build and I love it, it works grate! I have never had a problem using PM8.

A:Windows7 only accept 2 GB RAM


Welcome to 7 forums

In this regard, i guess the problem is with the 2 GB RAM or the RAM slot. The issue is not with Windows 7.

► Lets say RAM 1 works, RAM 2 caused the issue.

* To find if the defect is with that RAM or the slot, remove the working RAM 1 and place the RAM 2 in that same slot.

* If your Windows works fine, then the problem may be with the other RAM slot. If the RAM 2 causes BSOD now, then the issue is with the RAM. You may have to replace that RAM 2.

* Additionally, you can try interchanging the RAM slots and boot up !.

Hope this helps

Hi everybody,

My old laptops motherboard burned, so I stripped the RAM and HDD an threw the rest away. I bought a used Toshiba Satellite Pro without the HDD.

I put the old one into new laptop. But I had set HDD pw on my old laptop. I remember it 100% correct but the new computer does not unlock the drive. It says: HDD Password Invalidate Press any key to continue.

I tried going through Bios but it says "Registered". AndI cant select the Drive, going up/down on the list they just skip this drive.

I also tried booting straight from windows Disc to format and reinstall Windows but it askes HDD password before even booting up the disc.
Any Ideas how I can get rid of password or get the computer to accept it?
eidt: I dont necessarily need the data from the disc. I do lose some valuable pictures but I am happy if I can just format and install new wimdows.

This is about not being able to accept cookies, I E version 6.

I have changed and re-changed setting in internet options. I put the bar at accept all cookies. I have shut down my firewall and this did not help. I am using Zonealarm.
I have seen this addressed on several news groups and no one seems to have an answer. I have searched the knowledge base and tried several suggestions, no help.

Starting out, I E 6 was working okay, and then it quit accepting cookies. I asked for some knowledge from this forum. It was suggested that I use I E version 5.5.

I have Win98, Pentium II, 233 mhz, 196 megs ram, 32 g hd, plenty of room.

I used a program call IEradicator to remove I E 6. (http:\\www.98lite.net)
This did seem to remove I E from my computer. I ran it twice. I scandisk and defraged, ran regclean, scandisk and defrag again. I installed I E version 5.5. I still can not get this computer to accept cookies. I discovered that the internet options drop down was the same as version 6. This options menu still has a privacy tab included. I donít think that this is part of version 5.5.

I still canít accept cookies.

Does anyone know what to work over, to help me correct this main problem?

I know that I can empty all data and reformat. Might be what has to be. Did not want to do this.

A:Cookies, can not accept

Here are two possible ways that may help .

Double check your settings ( close & reopen ) to make sure everthing has been done correctly & the changes have stuck .


Dear Fred: Let me tell you of a simple way I have come up with
for managing cookies. It may not work for everyone, but it
works for me.
In the Internet Options (Security tab), I set both the
Internet zone and the Trusted Sites zone to Medium security.
Then, in the Internet zone, I disallow cookies that are stored
on the computer, while allowing session cookies. In the
Trusted Sites zone, I allow both. Whenever I run into a site
which needs to store a cookie (like eBay, Amazon, cable TV
listings, etc.) I add that site to the Trusted Sites zone. At
the end of the day, I have on the drive those cookies which I
need to keep, and all others are history.
To make this even easier, I use a small application called
Trust Setter, which puts two buttons in the IE toolbar, Add to
Trusted Sites, and Add to Restricted Sites. Get it from
http://www.jasons-toolbox.com/ScriptRepository/ .
Available by right clicking on the unwanted page .


Cookies present a dilemma. On one hand, chances are you want to accept cookies from some sites

HP DX2450 Microtower. This system comes with HP branded Windows XP install disk and a restore disk(among others). I wanted to perform a repair install on XP. Inserted the HP restore disk, system reported it sees a valid restore disk and ask for the Windows install disk. I put in the HP Windows XP disk, when it got to "install Windows" , I chose "repair an existing XP installation". When it finished installing, it ask for the product ID. I looked on the CD, in the i386 folder/unattend.txt, bottom line is the product ID. When I put in this key, it tells me it's not a valid key. Now I'm stuck. How can this not be a valid ID when it's on the same disk used to install Windows, and what can I do now?

A:Win XP will not accept product key

Often the product key is on a stick attached to the computer.

Can anyone assist with the following?

i Fitted new Asus P5GDC-V Deluxe mobo, board with a P4 3.2 gig processor, the board does post.
However on completing the IDE scan the following message appears.

"An ultra ATA/66 (or faster) drive is connected with a 40-pin IDE cable on the primary channel.
Drive speed is downgraded to ultra ATA/33 mode"

after seeing the message the PC suggests a hardware change has taken place but will not boot from the primary drive,
The correct IDE cable is used (in the correct cofiguration) in the primary IDE slot.
in the BIOS the drive is seen but it appears not recognised?
The boot H/D drive is A seagate Barracuda ATA 1V (model ST38002 1a) 80 GIG.
relitively new with W XP loaded.

If anyone has come across this before i'd appreiciate some guidence.

My mobo will accept up to PC100 and i have 128 mb of pc100 on it now.Will it accept a stick of pc 133 instead of pc 100.Will it reject it or accept it, and will i have repercussions from it. What would it do etc..

A:Will my mobo accept this ram?

More than likely your motherboard will accept it, but it will only run at PC100 speed. And I doubt you will have any problems, just you will not be running the ram at it maximum capacity. If you could give us some more info, like what kind of mobo, ram, etc. you have it would be good.
