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.)

This error, "the semaphore timeout period has expired" keeps popping up when I transfer files over a network. They'll go for about half, and then this error pops up and it's over.

How do I fix that?
 

A:Vista: "The Semaphore Timeout Period Has Expired"

Is this a Linksys Router?

Wired or WIFI?

Are you using an Internet Security Suite or ZoneAlarm?
This may also be thr problem....
This can happen when the total path length of the source file
and the total path length of the destination file are greater than a given
value, 128 I believe. When this occures in windows, it results in a Path
Too Deep error.

For my birthday this year, when my parents asked me what I wanted, I told them all I wanted was Flash. Unfortunately, I did not specify which version of Flash I wanted, so they immediately got the cheapest version they could find (and I don't really blame them). Anyway, they went ahead and got me an unopened version of Macromedia Flash MX 2004, which, of course, no longer has any sort of customer support. I just got around to installing it today, and when I was prompted to do so, I entered the valid serial number that came in the box. It said that the activation was successful, so I pressed continue, and the activation screen closed, but Flash did not launch. I tried to launch it, but it brought up a screen saying that my "Trial Period" had ended, and that I needed to activate my software. I proceeded to activate my software again by phone, hoping that before it had been some sort of internet problem. However, the same thing happened. My activation was successful, but when it closed and I had to relaunch, it said that my trial period was over. I called all the numbers I could find for customer support, but they all said that they no longer supported the product (however they did say that the activations I had made were successful after all). Does anyone have any solutions/advice other than buying a newer version of Flash?

Hello,

I cannot find the correct method for removing the expired trial version of Outlook which was included with Windows 10 and Microsoft Office Home and Business Office 2010.

I have Word and also Excel which I use in my business. What I want to do is be able to use the "send email" tab in the Excel file drop down menu. But when I click on the send as email tab, Outlook Tries to open, but I get this message window: "Thank you for installing Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010. This trial has expired. You may purchase a full version at any time by clicking upgrade now (below)"

I do not use Outlook at all. I prefer to use gmail as the default email. I want to be able to click on any link to reply or send an email and have gmail pop open (like Outlook tries to do).

I have read several link articles on how to do this, but none have worked. ANYONE ??

Thanks!

A:Outlook "Trial Expired" I want to use Gmail as my go to email

Hey Ricobob-

I'm not as familiar with using strictly web-based email accounts (or Excel) as some, so there might very well be an easy way for you to do this without using any third party email programs, but what about installing Thunderbird (free)?

It sounds as if Outlook is the default email for Excel (??). I don't know if you are able to change the defaulted email client to what you want within Excel, or if it uses the system's defaulted email. I'm not even sure you can use a non-MS email client, as I know nothing about Excel.

You should be able to easily configure Thunderbird to work with your Gmail account. In fact, I think it might do most of it for you.

If interested in, see HERE and HERE.

As I had a spare copy of Win 7 (upgrade version)

I decided to configure a new Hard Drive (Which I have on swappable pull out trays)

So to make sure there were no bugs or glitches, this is what I did.

(1) Formatted the Drive

(2) Clean Install of Win XP

(3) Clean Install of Win 7 (To Upgrade XP to Win 7)

(4) Using an Iso Disk I burned I then installed a free upgrade to Win 10 (which was accepted and registered by MS)

Everything was fine except for one thing.

When I try and use MS Edge, I get a banner on the Screen which says 'This App can't open, your trial period for this App has now expired.

Visit the Windows Store to purchase the Full App

Then there is a Link to go to the Store but there is no sign of an App for MS Edge!

I don't understand what's going on here, so need some advice what to do.

I am hoping that someone can help me with what may be a complex question.

I have a spreadsheet, similar to the demonstration file I have attached. In it, there are a range of columns. One set of columns (A - D), shows a list of numbers that are references to items in a store, and it also shows their location in the store, so it acts as a floor-plan. The next column (E) lists those items again to show the dollar amount that those items have produced in total sales (F).

So, what I'd like to do is to add a conditional formatting to show me the "cold" and "hot" spots on the floor-plan so I can see where sales are most concentrated. I would assume that this would be done with a colour scale (using the range of values in column F to work itself out)?

Either way, the figures in column F would change weekly, so the relevant cells in columns A - D would need to automatically change when they're matching cells in column E - F change.

I hope this makes sense, as it's difficult to explain, but any help that someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

A month ago I downloaded Excel 2007's Trial Version...all OK. I previously had Excel 2003 installed. I purchased an upgrade of Excel 2007, placed the disk in the C drive and followed the installation instructions. (I should have used the conversion route, but I didn't.) It appeared the upgrade installation was successful, but the "Trial Version" notation still appears on the top line of the screen. I then went the conversion route, entered the Product Key again, and received the message something like "Product Key already used." How do I make the Product Key work...or how do I obtain a new Product Key? What to do, please? Thanks. Kiki2

I made a business invoice with the default Excel template and it fits my needs. However, all of the text formatting options are greyed out, which leaves me only with the ability to enter text. I'd like to be able to do a little formatting within the default template just to jazz up the look a bit but can't for the life of me find an option to "unlock" the template so it will allow for some text formatting. Is there a way to do this?

I assume you have tried using the tools menu, protection and unprotect the sheet option. It should allow you to do this Word 2003 does. Make your changes, then protect the sheet again so you can only select the unprotected cells.

Hello everyone,
I've downloaded the evaluation copy of MS Windows 10 Enterprise a few days ago, burned the image onto the DVD-ROM and installed this image per given instructions, however it seems that I have installed a rootkit instead. It is apparrent in the number of
executables in the Windows/Windows32 subdirectory, which return with positive virustotal.com results  when queried with the sigcheck prompt (Microsoft System Internal Tools). Also, this image of W10 Ent would not allow me to setup an appropriate firewall
protection as any attempt to do so (only allow ports 53, 80 and 443 only for TCP and UDP protocols), for local and remote connections, end either with full network block (local rules seem not be effective) or with these ports getting forwarded onto ports 50000
and up (netstat prompt). Although a lame question (sorry, newbie here! :), are these local ports supposed to be that wide open, or, should they be also limited in the same manner as the remote ports (53,80,443)?

And finally, is there any other way how to make this image work as a secure OS environment, or, is this some kind of "feature" which the Windows 10 Enterprise evaluation copy is based upon in order for MS to disable the system if anyone then used
this licence in excess of these set 90 days, I wonder...?

My computer that had been running the Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium since early 2009 had become an appliance:  It worked every time it was turned on and it handled every network transaction that came through my DSL line.  I had set the "Windows
Update" program to check for updates periodically, every month or so, and then to inform me when ever any update was available.  I could tell when the "Windows Update" program had been checking for updates, as the CPU usage went up to 100
percent with the used memory amount "sawtoothed" up and down for about 15 to 20 minutes.   The "Windows Update" then would tell me about the available updates and it would ask whether it should load any of those. 

This  worked until about January 2016.  At that time, the "Windows Update" CPU usage would stay at 100 percent for more than an hour.  After that, it gradually got worse:  Around June 2016, it held the CPU at 100 percent usage
for about 14 hours.  In August 2016, the CPU is held at 100 percent usage by the "Windows Update" for more than 45 hours with no end in sight.  It did find some updates to load, but it would not load them as the CPU had no time to do that.

Hello,

In Microsoft Excel 2003, I have a column that has dates listed in this format: '01.01.2008', rather than, say, '01/01/2008'. This format is a requirement.

In the column that contains these dates, I have set each cell to have a date format to them as well as a custom setting that replaced the "/" with a ".". The problem, however, is that it can now no longer sort the dates correctly.

Is anyone able to tell me how I can modify or correct this so that I can have the dates listed in the '01.01.2008' format and still sort them as I normally would?

Two weeks ago, I cleaned a scareware virus from a PC. The drive was acting flaky, so I did a scandisk and repaired what appeared to be typical file damage. After that, the drive was unreadable. I reloaded the OS and restored data from my backup and everything was fine.

(I don't see this kind of damage often, but I know it happens, so I didn't think much about it.)

Last week, I cleaned another scareware virus (a different one), and the drive also became unreadable. Only this one had an an unusual twist. The BIOS will not detect the drive until I force it to. After saving the configuration and rebooting, the the BIOS again does not recognize the drive.

I have run three types of diagnostics on the drive, and all say it is fine and bootable -- no partition errors or anomalies. Further weirdness: I can read the drive fine from another system as long as it's on an IDE channel, but it will NOT register at all through a USB adapter....??!!

Today I got back a PC that I had cleaned a scareware virus from several weeks ago. This time the drive seemed to be dying. The system would lock or BSOD after a certain amount of time. Scandisk found no errors, nor any other of utilities I used, yet as I was working on it the drive finally went out and -- low and behold -- the BIOS would no longer detect it. I thought this was just a coincidence until I connected it to another system to attempt data recovery, and it reads the drive just fine!

I have a nested "IF" statement that inlcudes the "OR" function because I have more than 7 logical tests. One of the logical tests looks for two fields to be true in order to return the "value if true". If either or both fields are false, then the "value if false" is returned, in this case zero. When the value of the first field is correct, but the value of the second field is not correct, zero is returned, which is the "value if false" and a correct return.

However, when both fields are false, the formula is returning the word "FALSE" instead of zero.

The attached file shows these returns and the formulas. Cells F2-7 are corrrect returns (highlighted in green), while cells F8-11 are not correct returns (highlighted in red).

Hey guys,

I have another ravishing question for you. I have many (and I mean many) files where the words within the filename are separated not by spaces but rather by periods.

Example:
My.Summer.Vacation.mkv

This is because my family uploads movies and other content on sites like Rapidshare and Hotfile, in which the filename cannot contain spaces. Therefore people use periods to separate the words of a given file.

My question is the following, is there a way to index my hard drives using either Windows 7 search or even Google Desktop in order to return a search result for the word "vacation" in my above example. At the moment it does not return a result since the word vacation is not separated by spaces.

As per my usual etiquette, if anyone helps me figure this out, I will post images of how to do so in the replies section of this posts.

Thanks for any input,

Can you please help me with this? Basically IF "WIN", copy # from other cell, IF "LOSE", put down "o" (zero). See attached-- to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Hope to hear from you by tonight? I need the answer before tomorrow's games.

Thank you.

Can I run the trial for office 2007 and keep my 2003 stuff loaded and running? My life's in OneNote 2003, which I have the full version of(2 copies, actually), but my trial for all the other office things *just* expired, and I've got a giant paper due in 2 weeks. Which is now read-only. I can't figure out what I need to do in Oo.o in regards to headers and formatting. Which is the main reason I'm currently in a state of panic!

Do you have to get rid of 2003 to use 2007?

Edit: I'd like to hold off on buying 2007 until after the end of the semester, because I need to turn my tablet in for some pretty crazy repairs. And I'm debating the merits of switching to vista while all that's being changed around in the meantime. So I'd like to wait on buying until after I decide if Vista's gonna work for me.
 

A:Office 2007 trial question (My 2003 trial just expired!)

Hi there,

I'm not sure about the trial version, but with the whole version (which I understand the trial version to be, only with a countdown limit on it) you can install over 2003 and keep both versions. The only thing you cannot do this with is Outlook (you are only allowed one of those programs/versions at a time). There are some other minor issues, but for the most part, all can run together fairly well. I have 2003 and 2007 installed on my main hdd partition.

So when your 2007 trial is up, you can uninstall it, but will need to reinstall Outlook. It would probably be better to reinstall everything anyways. You may have issues with normal.dotx or personal.xlsb, etc.

Hi. I'm new here and didn't find an answer for my question by doing a search. SO here's my question:

How do I remore / change previous "Design Template" info from my PowerPoint Presentation? I have to re-use PowerPoint 2002 presentations from various sources on my job. The reformated presentations still contain the original "design template" info which can be seen as uneditable content on the File / Properties / Summary tab and the Content tab. It is also seen at the bottom of the PowerPoint workspace in the Status area. The point is, I need to change that info to a generic template name, for client confidentiality, and other reasons. The MS forums did not have an answer that I can find. Thanks in advance for your help!
 

A:How do I remore / change previous "design Template" info from my PowerPoint Pres?

How to Modify PowerPoint Template Information

PowerPoint presentations reference the design template used to style a presentation. This is found on the Summary and Contents tabs on the Properties dialog box, as well as at the bottom of the PowerPoint workspace in the Status area. To delete the Template metadata information from an existing presentation, follow these steps:

1. Open the presentation.
2. On the View menu, move mouse to Master, on the fly-out menu click Slide Master.
3. In Slide Master View, on the Edit menu, click Rename Master.
4. Type in desired slide master name, ie, My Special Template or a generic Design Template.
5. Save and close the PowerPoint presentation.

I got a client that logs into our web based ticketing system. They are constantly kicked off the site with a session expired error just after a couple minutes of being logged in.

I have cleared their cache, deleted cookies, and reset their password within the site a few times. I am kind of stuck on what could be causing them to get a session expired error so quickly after log in. They are not able to stay connected to carry out functions.

Any ideas what else could cause this issue?
 

A:Solved: "Session Expired" Assistance please

Just a suggestion..
Check your ticketing system's config files and find a web.xml file.

Check to find a session timeout setting.It should look like this:
<session-config> <session-timeout>120</session-timeout> </session-config>

It may have a browser specific command or the timeout values are the issue.
Also, try having them view it in another browser.

Again, not 100% sure, just a suggestion.

The hosts file is normal.

Google is now redirecting to https:// They are no longer using http. What browser are you using? (IE, Firefox, Chrome)? Delete all temporary internet cache, cookies etc. Do a full scan with Anti Virus software, and Malwarebytes, followed by CCleaner. Try a different browser.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

trail version means software that's fully functioning but only for a short/limited period of time?

shared version means some part of the software lacks the function of full version?
 

A:Solved: noob question on defining "trial version"

Hi,
Shareware needs to be paid for, trial is as you describe. If you are looking for good, legal freeware (no limitations) there are excellent independent reviews at Tech Support Alert:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/

If you are looking for freeware that runs from portable devices (USB) there are tons of progs reviewed at this independent site. Also includes users' comments:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php

They also discuss 'nagware' as well.
Hope these are of interest?

When I couldn't delete the student office trial (which came installed with my HP laptop purchase) from "add/remove" due to having deleted first, a different but associated program (can't recall the name), I followed these tedious instructions found on this link - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218

The problem is...I noticed that instead of freeing up disk space, it took up more. How can I remove this trial completely to free up space?

This can be a problem.

Also, I would say that fix from MS applies only to when the proper procedure for the uninstall of Office is followed but the end result is not what we expected so basically that didn't wasn't any help.

We need to know what other mystery "associated" program is.

Does anyone know where I can get this? The mfgr. website says its available for download, but then when you try to d/l it, the page just refreshes itself instead of starting the download. Download.com has it, but guess where they link to for the d/l...the mfgr. website. No matter where I go, affiliatees, etc. their sites download link is always the one on te mfgr website. If anyone has it, can you e-mail it to me? (NOTE: Most ISPs will not let you e-mail a huge file through their OWN e-mail service. If the file is huge, i would be more than happy to give you a g-mail acct. to e-mail it to me...Thank You!!!)

NOTE: I put some terms in quotes in quotes because they might not be the correct term to use, and I don't want helpful people going off in the wrong direction because I used a term that actually means something else.

That said, I created a "layout" that I want to use on all slides in the presentation. Each page will have the same "header" and "footer". Each page will have unique "content" between the "header" and "footer".

What I expect to happen is that when I complete one slide and add a new one, I should be able to open a "blank" slide that has that same "layout," but with no "content." Then I add another new slide that has that same "layout," but with no "content." and so on, through 20 or so slides.

I've tried PP's Template feature and I've tried PP's Master Slide. In each case I created that "layout" that I want to use on all slides in the presentation. However, each time I try to add a new slide PP wants me to use one of PP's pre-determined templates or master slides.

I could copy-and-paste my basic slide, but there must be a better way. After all, PowerPoint has been around for 15 or so years. Surely in that time someone has come up with a way to do this. I'm sure that the problem is that I don't understand the terminology and therefore don't know how to ask in Microsoft's "help" system.... Read more

If you right-click the Start icon then click System, does it give that information? For a clean install it's usually been 30 days but for a re-install and some Upgrades I've seen only 3 days.
