How to disable repair function in OL2000?

Q: How to disable repair function in OL2000?

I'm using an application which is using MAPI functionalities. OL 2000 needs another version of this file. Therefore the self-repair function tries to replace it all the time when I start OL2000. I'd like to disable this feature. Does anybody know how to do so?

Preferred Solution: How to disable repair function in OL2000?

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: How to disable repair function in OL2000?

From what I know, the repair function is automatic and can not be turned off. The only solution I can give you is to contact Microsoft and see if they have the file you need.

hi,

I'd like to know how can I, in Windows XP, disable the function that after a certain time of non use of the PC, the desktop goes in the mode where you have to choose whether to log as this or that user... I find it rather annoying because then when I click on my user for example, it takes time to load all the settings.
I'd rather apply a normal screen saver but I tried and it doesnt work.
Any idea?
thanks

How to disable the function key ? It is because i need to use the F1,F2,F3, ... in the game and it is very annoying that once i press the F1,F2 while playing, it comes up with the function of the function key. Beside that, I had tried the suggested solution which restart the laptop and disable the function key in the BIOS setup window by press the F10 button once it restarted. But it does not show anything when i pressed F10. So, I was wondering how to disable the function key and function only when I pressed the FN key on my laptop.

Hi everyone,
I just switched from Mac OS to Windows 8, and one of my biggest problems have been the function keys (F1-F12). On a mac, you could have the OS features "hidden" behind Fn, which enabled me to use function keys as shortcuts when using a software or playing. With Windows 8, the OS function keys commands go above a software's shortcut commands. So you can't press F5 for refresh and so forth.

After a lot of googling, it seemed it's impossible to switch Windows 8's features such as second screen (f10) off, or have them behind a Fn+F10 type commands.

I've tried already to achieve this with autohotkey but even with administrative rights etc, Windows 8 won't let me bypass or override the OS function keys features.

Please, could anyone help me? This is actually the main reason in considering to sell my brand new Lenovo laptop (which I like) and switch back to Apple.

My computer, Gateway M7350u, OS Windows7 SP1, does not have a Fn key to turn off the Touchpad. When I go to Device>Mouse I see two devices. Apparently the pad is controlled by the PS/2 Compatible Mouse driver. Under Properties>Driver for this device the DISABLE function is grayed out. Weird, because the driver for the HID-compliant mouse driver (which I do use) can be disabled. QUESTION: how can I enable the Disable function for the PS/2 driver? --->(Uninstalling is no solution because Windows insists on automatically reinstalling the driver!)

A:[SOLVED] Enabling DISABLE function

Disabling the trackpad will mean you won't be able to use it and will require a USB keyboard to login etc.
If this is what you want boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals look for TrackPad or some such and using your Arrow and Enter key Disable it.

A MAJOR Bug in IE9, as far as I'm concerned is the "Pin Function".

I can no longer "Drag and Drop" a Link from IE9 into an Explorer window. Neither can you "Copy & Paste" it.

Now when you drag the link from the URL bar it turns into a "Pinned" link in Explorer, only openable in IE, and with no Link location in Proprties.

Also, when you click the icon created in Explorer, it opens in a New window, which can't be dragged into my existing window.

I HATE this....

I can understand why people may want to Pin a site to the Task bar.. But why have they Screwed with "Drag & Drop" and "Cut & Paste" for those of us that just want to store the link for future use????

ANY tweak that will disable this function would be Most appreaciated!

Hi Malygris1,Thanks for the reply. The link you sent me didn't quite help. However after typing the question on the blog earlier I decided to restart my computer. The problem didn't occur again. I don't think I toggled the overtype function and it must have been a glitch between my touchpad and the wireless mouse I was using. When I had the problem I tried to untoggle the insert function by pressing the "fn" key and the "0/ins" key or using the "fn" key and the "prstsc/ins" key at the sametime. It didn't seem to work because I must have been switching it on and off without seeing a difference. Everything is fine now. I now know how to toggle it on and off by holding the "fn" function key and the "0/ins" or "prt sc/ins" key at the same time. Thanks anyway

We just got a laptop, and the keyboard layout is killing us. The Ctrl key is so much closer to the Shift key, so very often, we when typing an email, we accidently hit "ctrl-d" instead of Shift-d (trying to capitalize the D). For some reason, this highlights an entire paragraph, and instantly deletes it at the same time... very frustrating.

The program is an email program called FirstClass, but it also happens in MS Word.

Hello all,

I'm work IT at a small office and my coworker came to me with a strange problem she encountered. Now, before I begin I can't rule out user error so keep that in mind, but this is somewhat baffling. She was sending an email out roughly 25-40 people, typed all addresses in by hand. After the mail was sent, she received a reply from one of the recipients wondering why a strange name was next to her email address in the message (in the TO: field.)

When we went to sent items and looked at the message, for some reason outlook replaced around 10 or more email addresses with one particular contact from her address book. This contact is for a coworker here. Now, when we went into the address book, there were two entries for this same coworker; one was correct, the other had a list of roughly 30 different email addresses with one in particular set to the default (although wrong.) I deleted both contacts, hoping it won't happen again. There is no way to check if all the intended recipients received the correct email without simply emailing them all again.

Now, my question is this: has anyone had Outlook 2000 perform such trickery? Is there ANY way to test to make sure this wont happen again?
Anyone out there even have an idea as to why this occurred in the first place?

Thanks everyone,
have a great Friday & weekend!

I have just upgraded from Outlook Express (2000) to Outlook 2000. During the upgrade, I was asked if I wanted to import the adresses from Outlook Express into Outlook, which I answered yes to. The Address Book (or is it called the "contacts folder"?) that I had in OE contained subfolders. The address book in OL that I now have only contains the addresses that were in the "root folder" of my OE addres book. The strange thing is that also the address book that is in OE has lost the information that was in the subfolders.

I'm pretty sure this happened in the upgrade. I must admit that I did not have a look in the OE address book just before the upgrade, but I must have been there pretty recently, and I can't see any other reason for this than the upgrade.

Does anybody know what could have happened?

I do have a backup that I made just before the upgrade, so I assume it must be possible to get the adresses back somehow, but I don't know of any good way.

The best would of course be to get them from the backup into OL, but even if I can only get them back into OE, this would be a great improvement.

I can find no where in contacts where you can specifically state that messages to this person should be in rich text. My options are set to plain text. The message coming in to me is not in rich text format. Any thoughts?

Hi!

Problem:
When you send out emails and WANT to track responses (read, not read, deleted) HOW can you make that happen automatically - without additional intervention by the sender ?

Description:
When the response is returned to the sender - the sender has to OPEN each response message (read receipt) to have it record appropriately in the "tracking" tab of the sent mail item. Can this happen without requiring the sender to open EVERY single response e-mail (especially in our case of 300+ recipients)?

Solutions tried:
I have tried rules to mark those messages as "read" - that does not trigger the tracking record. I have also tried the "tracking option" under the e-mail options to "Process requests and responses on arrival" and "After processing, move receipts to" ..... but this needs the computer to Idle for 30 to 60 seconds (as per Microsoft knowledge base) to automatically process the read receipt. Unfortunately, I can't afford to put my comp to idle so many times during the day!

In all cases - the recipients response is NOT recorded until the sender actually OPENS each individual response by opening each
message individually.

Suggested solution:
From what I understand after reading many articles related to the subject, I need to create a "custom action" that will be triggered by a rule.

For example, the rule would read: "If subject contains "Read:", "Not Read:" then perform &q... Read more

My son recently bought himself Skyrim for his HP Probook4525a laptop (which he also bought himself, so it's not top of the line). He said that it doesn't play well, glitches or freezes. He has tried reinstalling it a couple of times.

I see that it requires 2gb ram, but his laptop shows 1.8gb. So I assumed that means I should add ram. My brother told me he needs a new hard drive or video card. How the heck do you know what to add or change?

I tried scanning at crucial.com but after I open the download nothing happens. No results, nothing.
 

A:How do I know what to upgrade/repair on laptop for game to function well?

using the laptop in question go here; http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri
select Skyrim from the games menu and run a test. It will point out the areas that fall short. (with the java problems of late, you may want to download and install the test scanner if you have Java disabled)

also, the 1.8 gigs shown does mean 2 gigs. just the way computers read the bits and stuff. Also might not be showing the chunk of Ram it took for video memory. (All depends on what is in the system specs.)
More ram would help, but for heavy 3D games usually a graphics card is the best option.

Think TSG has a system analyzer, might want to run that on the laptop so we can see what is in it.

I started up my laptop the other morning an just as windows is loading a BSOD flashes for a millisecond and then the computer restarts. It did this 5 times in a row before I finally gave up. I found the windows vista cd that came with the computer and booted from it. Once the DVD loaded I clicked accept and it took me straight to a new install with no repair function which should be included on the recovery disc. I rebooted multiple times, here is no repair option. To make matters worse, I only have 5.9 gigs free on my hd and vista requires 6.6 to install. The only option I have is to reformat the drive, which is out of the question as I have lots of documents saved that I cannot lose. So at the moment the recovery DVD is useless to me, and I cannot load windows to delete some files to make room for a new install.

I took a video of the loading screen and was able to pause it at the frame when the BSOD flashes, here is the stop message: STOP: 0xc0000005, 0x00000200, 0x83354964.

I tried removing one stick of ram at a time thinking maybe one had gone bad it didn't make a difference. I'm at a loss right now. No matter how I try to load windows, safe mode, etc, I get a BSOD and it restarts, and my windows recovery DVD is useless with my hd nearly full.
 

A:BSOD during startup, no repair function on recovery cd

Nobody? There's no way to delete files/folders without using the command prompt on the recovery disc?

This really makes no sense and I'm beyond frustrated. Why is there no repair selection when I boot from the vista DVD.

Hi,

I had to create an excel file for my workplace which is to be accessed by many users and this excel file relies on formulas for quite a bit of calculations that need to be done internally.

Now the problem with excel is that if a user cuts pastes data in any referenced cell, the formula referenceing to that cell tends to throw a #REF error, so thus to prevent users from causing this error I pasted the following code in the ThisWorkbook module of VBA :

Option Explicit
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, _
ByVal Target As Excel.Range)

Select Case Application.CutCopyMode
Case Is = False
'do nothing
Case Is = xlCopy
'do nothing
Case Is = xlCut
MsgBox "Please DO NOT Cut and Paste. Use Copy and Paste; then delete the source."
Application.CutCopyMode = False 'clear clipboard and cancel cut
End Select

End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Activate()
Application.CellDragAndDrop = False
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Application.CellDragAndDrop = True
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()
Application.CellDragAndDrop = True
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.CellDragAndDrop = False
End Sub

Now while the above code achieved the intended goal it created another problem in the form that sometimes when users have to copy data into the workbook from another workbook, the data does not get copied as the paste option remains disabled. (PS. The copy and paste works for the workbook internally).... Read more
