Preferred Solution: Can I change com numbers on my windows

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.)

Welcome apivin to the windows 7 forums.

You might help by filling out the system spec's on your system.

Also, Is your problem that the program your trying to run requires a com port higher than 7?

You can in most cases, in your system configuration rename the com port to a higher number.

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of


"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this


behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


etc?
Thanks."


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about
the disk order, I think we can safely ignore this."

Hello Everyone !
i used to work with IE 9 and now after updating to 11 i got a problem
in IE 9, the data that contains slash shows me vice versa, but when i updated to 11, the new one works well,
unfortunately our users got used to work with vice versa information.
I'm talking about Numbers.
for example the number is 15/14 that IE9 shows you 14/15 and IE11 shows you 15/14
i need to set IE11 to behave like IE9 in this case

I have a basic Excel spreadsheet that I use as an order form.

When I type a whole number into the quantity box and hit enter, it transforms into a two-place decimal number:

1 becomes .01
5 becomes .05

This happens no matter how many times I try to reformat the cell. It happens if I open Word and insert a spreadsheet into a document.

Something simple, or supernatural?

It is not possible to have more than 26 mounted drives. If access to more filesystems than this is required, Volume Mount Points must be used. However, it is possible to mount non-letter drives, such as 1:, 2:, or !: using the command line subst utility in Windows XP or Vista (i.e. "subst 1: c:\temp"), but this is not officially supported and may break programs that assume that all drive letters are A-Z.

I have a column that has numbers in this format: 54321-1234

Now, I want to take off the last 4 numbers, and the dash, from all the numbers in the column, using a formula. So that the output would be: 54321.

I want it so the first 5 numbers stay the same, but the dash and last 4 are gone. Is this possible?

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

QUESTION 1.
All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

QUESTION 2,
Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

Best advice, leave it alone. It may bother your (and others) sense of order but it won't affect how anything works, and no re-installing Windows won't change it.

Hi all,

I have a problem with MS-Word that I just can't seem to crack on my own so I was hoping that maybe someone over here had a clue what the right angle on this one may be:

I have pricelists of my company's products in a usual .doc-file. Mainly because I couldn't get the layout proper in Excel and mounting .xls in a .doc makes it way too heavy...
Anyway, prices need to be increased a bit and since these are quite extensive lists, re-calculating and changing every single price would be a lot of work so I was hoping to do this automated, like increase every price by 5% or so.
I tried to make a macro that finds numbers by looking for something like "€ ##,##" and I think I can make this work, but how on earth can I get Word to change that value??

I know, I know, I should have done this in .xls but that would be a serious pain to do it all over in Excel... Any thoughts on this matter?

Thanx in advance !

Rob3307 Folks have bandied about a couple of different KBs -- claiming these both "fixed" Windows Updates.  But further examination has revealed that NOT to be true. I continue to support a bunch of Win7 PCs, some of which were rolled back from Win10 because the owners disliked Win10 so much.But, I have noticed that recently, Windows Update has been performing really slowly on ALL these machines.The symptoms are that it searches for HOURS -- and does not appear to make any progress!OR .. it finds stuff, but then goes into downloading for HOURS ... and does not appear to make any progress!Anyway,  check for a Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Downloads\ folder.  This is where Windows Updates stores the updates it downloads and its working files.  IF it exists, Windows Update is working -- even though you see no progress.  Over time, the folder will grow until all the Updates have been downloaded.  Then, it will shrink as the Updates get applied.  When done, Windows should remove it. If it does not, you can remove the contents of that folder, but do not remove the folder itself.And yes ... updates are taking hours (or days!) when they used to take only a few minutes. So basically, there is nothing wrong with your PC.  And -- if you RESET it, you are only going to make matters worse as that will start the Update process from scratch, and the last time I did that, it took three full days (!) to find, download, and apply all the updates...

Anyone have any idea what I need to do in Windows 10 to get my Numbers Lock to stay on all the time?
Each time I start the system I have to remember to press the Numbers Lock button. On my Windows 7 it stayed on all the time unless I purposely turned it off.
It's no real big deal to push a button, but it's just a pain in the rear to type in a password or user name and discover it didn't work simply because this darn button was turned off by the system.
Oh, I did do a "regedit" and changed the numbers in the box to #2 and restarted the system. When the system restarted the Numbers Lock light was on and I figured I must have fixed it. However when I booted up today it was off again.

Hi all,

New here, so I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this(if it isn't, admins please move it to the correct forum, thanks!). I'm currently running Windows 8.1 and recently I took a look at my Resource Monitor and noticed a process called numbers.exe with the description "Numbers". It showed it as running in the background but in a suspended state.

As I've never seen that process before, I decided to search it up and it came up with some results related to a trojan/rootkit. But this trojan/rootkit was namely referred to as <random numbers>.exe (for example: 123456789.exe); nothing indicating specifically the process "numbers.exe". I did a bit of digging in the associated handles and noticed that some of the files were related to the default Windows Calculator App, which I have currently pinned to my Start. When I unpinned it from the Start the process was gone.....so I'm assuming it is the process for the calculator. But because of a trojan incident I had a few years back, I'm a bit paranoid based of the searches that popped up for numbers.exe.

So I was wondering if anyone knows if this "numbers.exe" is a legitimate process? Does anyone else who also has the default calculator pinned to their start have this process running as "suspended"?

Anyone help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I have sought a solution for this problem for a few weeks and cannot find one.

My notebook is an HP Pavilion dv9005ca Laptop (17in. screen) and has a separate numeric keypad. Running Windows XP SP2 with all patches.

The keys: M,JKL,UIO produce numeric characters (0 to 6) when the num lock key is on and the correct characters when it is off (some other keys on that side of the keyboard produce symbols found on the numeric keypad).

Following HP support suggestion at [url not allowed:-( ] I have tried the Fn + num lock combination but this does nothing.

When I first boot up the characters are normal until the num lock key is toggled.

At some point a while ago when entering text I believe I inadvertently pressed a combination of keys that caused this problem.

I hope someone can help.

Hello, 1st post, glad to be here.

I am having a problem that I find odd and something I never noticed with Windows Search in the Win 7 environment. I have users who name files strictly with numbers. No letters, just straight numbers. They're part drawings made by drafting software (i.e. Solidworks, AutoCAD). I don't believe this has been a problem before Win 7 As I believe XPs search did find these types of files search strings with out issue.

I've attempted to mess around with the Indexing under Folder Options and the Search tab. That didn't seem to help. I also did a google search for the topic and found third party software but where I work at it would to be a tough time selling this to management to allow me to install.

I have level 1 tech support experience and anything with command line and me usually is a very slow process but if any of you happen to know a way to get this type of search to cooperate without third party software i'd greatly appreciate the input. Thank you!

3.  Removed a disabled BHO with a name of only a registry key by deleting the key from the registry.
 
 
Both Malwarebytes and Avast have found and removed "Pup" type infections, but the popup still comes back.
 
I have ran the FRST and also did a hijackthis scan, both of which are attached.

RELEVANCY SCORE 37.6

Hai,

I updated the windows server 2003 (Domain controller) and installed sp2. But after that no body can access the shared documents in fileserver and Domain controller. So i unistalled the sp2 and other updates and disabled the firewall . Now it is OK.

But in some fileserver (XP Sp2 using for sharing files etc) i can see question mark and numbers instead of the domain user's name in security Tab. So that no one can access it except domain administrator. I tried to add domain user's once again in the security tab. But can not. Please help me to solve this issue ?

Regards

Jithin k

I everyone I am a newbie to the forums. I was installing some new font packages the other day for photoshop and all of a sudden the font within some of my programs is now unreadable (looks like Tekton Pro, but very hard to read). I googled how to change font in windows 8 and was only able to change:
CaptionFont
IconFont
MenuFont
MessageFont
StatusFont

I changed all of these, but it did not change the font that is not readable! I have noticed that when I log into Facebook, the search bar font is also unreadable...

Does anyone know how to fix this?!

It looks like the font may be arial bold, and should be just arial. THe bold really makes things look fuzzy on the screen...

I had purchased Dell Inspiron 13" 7348 2-in-1 Laptop while in Japan. It came with Japanese Single Language Windows 8.1. Eventually I changed it to English by downloading English Language Pack.
Using Free Windows 10 upgrade by Microsoft, the laptop is upgraded, however it fails to change the base language to English.
Can someone help?

My system is an IBM P4 3.2GHz running Windows XP Pro SP3. When I power the system on, there are some Hex numbers that appear at the lower right of the monitor screen such as 003B, 0075, 0078, 0073 and probably several others that I can't see because they come and go rather quickly. Does anyone know what these numbers mean and is there a problem with my system because these numbers appear?? My system appears to boot & run correctly and there are no hardware or software problems that I'm aware of.

Thanks for any help here.

David

A:What do these numbers mean??

Do they appear and change when you move your mouse? When you press a key on the keyboard? It looks like it could be some type of debugging information but nothing harmful.
