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 just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

thanks

It recognizes the iPhone as a camera, which my laptop also did, but, unlike my laptop, under Network Connections, there is no Local Area Connection icon that represents the iPhone, and of course the iPhone does not have the blue band at the top of the screen that says "Internet Tethering", and it is not functioning as a modem.

how do i transfer a ringtone from the computer to my lg rumor
 

A:ringtone transfer

Depends on the phone's capability. If the ringtones are something you placed on the phone, and if you can copy them off, then if the new phone has the ability to use that same format (there are quite a few different ringtone formats) and if you can access the area of the phone to place a new ringtone, then you should be able to do it.

Tell us what two phones you are trying to do the transfer with, and perhaps someone here can help you with it.

Hi,

This Jessica from Canada. As I have seen your comments as I'm getting the iPhone 3G, and I'd like your opinion on whether I should get the 8GB or 16GB. Here are the details: I update my iTunes frequently so at most I'll have 200 or 300 songs. I would maybe have 5 movies or videos on and maybe 20-50 applications(mostly free-haha). Not a lot of pictures, maybe 50-100. Obviously the white 16GB is pulling me in but with the ****ty economy I don't want to buy the 16GB unless I know I'm going to need the extra room, and I don't know if I do or not. Also there's probably going to be another iPhone in 2 or 3 years so why would I just throw away that $100?

Hi, I was wanting to get an iPhone 4S 16gb for Christmas so started comparing.

In the UK Apple store, it costs 499.00.
In the US Apple store, it costs $199.00 (which is 128).

In my opinion, that is absolutely crazy!

Is there some way I could buy it without a contract in the US store? I have an uncle in the US so he could buy it and send it over to me.

Could I then get a O2 or Vodafone contract on it over here?

Many thanks!
 

A:Buy an iPhone 4S from USA

That $199 most likely means it's tied to a contract, so with monthly payments you would pay eventually that same 499 or even more...

I got an iPhone 3G today from 3, on a plan and stuff, so I can't break it. But I came home, and realised the iPhone was far more disappointing than originally expected, Bluetooth doesnt share data, only access to audio devices such as headsets and speakers, and itunes won't recognise it at all.. When connected, it charges, and appears in my computer, but itunes displays an error saying something about reconnect, iphone not recognised. This is very frustrating, as after around 4 hours of google searching, apple support ticket reading and other various attempts, I'm unable to fix this issue. I don't wanna go to bed my first night of having this new phone that's supposed to magically double as an ipod, and it doesnt even have a song on it to use as a ring tone other than the depressing default ones..

any suggestions?

i've found some people say to disconnect the wireless network, i unplugged the network cable connected to our home wireless gateway, no luck, disabled it, no luck, but maybe i'm doing it wrong.. any ideas are much appreciated

Well.. i personaly use and iPad from school and im having a galaxy s2 as my main phone. I am so annoyed with my iPad becouse of the lack of functions. If you want to listen to music the S2 can be an EXTREMELY good phone for you. It has a 1.2Ghz dual core cpu instead of the Iphone 4 : 800Mhz and Iphone 4s : 800Mhz dual core.
The screen is bigger and more high resolution and the s2 costs very little.
So i would recommend getting a S2 plus
and then buying a phone subscribtion that you like. it will probably be cheaper than most stuff becouse to be honest. iPhones are expensive as h..
Try looking into android a bit more. The ace is pure crap to say the least. Cheap android phone's are nothing to have. But the ones with a bit more horsepower is amazing.

I have had AOL for a long time and I receive most of my e-mails at that address. I set up AOL on my iPhone and it wors fine, except for the fact that when I delete e-mails on the phone, it deletes it off the server. The fix for this was to set up AOL as a POP account and set it to keep the mail on the server. That worked fine, but I wasn't able to receive e-mails with attachments on my phone, it said "message was not downloaded from the server." I am in the mortgage businesss and receive rate sheets and appraisals in my e-mail and when I am not in my office it makes things easier to be able to view them on my phone. When AOL is set up an an IMAP account, the attachments download simply. Does anyone know of any settings within AOL to allow it to download large files or e-mails with attachments while it is set as a POP account? I cannot call AOL tech help because I don't pay for AOL anymore, since they allowed you to get it for free with a broadband connection. Thanks in advance.

I need some basic help for a newbie who?s never used the ?cloud? before, in any version.

I use Excel to update a simple database stored on my desktop while I?m home. I?d like to store the latest version of that file in some cloud, and then use Excel from my iphone while I?m on vacation, to keep it updated while I?m away from home. Then, when I?m back home, I want to replace the now-outdated version on my desktop with the version that I kept up-to-date while I was on the road. How do I do all that?

I have an iphone 6s. I?m using ios 9.2. So I have an icloud account. I have Excel 2013 at home on the desktop. I?ve heard of OneDrive, which is made by Microsoft, not Apple, I think. It sounds as if OneDrive and iCloud are the same kind of ?cloud? storage. Right? If so, should I use iCloud or OneDrive, or doesn?t it matter?

Once I download the Excel app, then what? Just open it and proceed normally like I do using the desktop? How do I find the file I want to work on, once I?ve put it either in iCloud or OneDrive? Will it be apparent once I use the Excel app where to find it?

Finally, once I?m home again, how do I put the file from the cloud back on to my desktop hard drive in place of the now-outdated version I left behind?

Sorry for all the dumb questions, but it shows you what you?re dealing with if you try to help me! And thanks, in advance, if you do!

A:Using Excel on iPhone 6s/ios 9.2

what version of excel do you have 2013 stand alone or a subscription service
do you have excel on the phone - if not , how do you intend to update?

Apple icloud drive has the facility to save documents
as does onedrive which is MS cloud sharing site

if you have a MS account then you have 5gb of storage

Hi -
I just got a new Dell laptop. I connected it via ethernet to our home LAN. I had the idea that it was 'safer' than wireless until I got security software purchased. Before I did I needed to visit my parents in another town, so I took the Dell with me to finish up. I also just got an iphone (3GS). One day while 'exploring' a dialog came up saying that a wireless connection was available did I want to connect? I did, and it did. Now I can connect to the web! Later, I decided that I wanted to connect the laptop, also. Problem is, it doesn't seem to be able to see the network to which the iphone is connected (& continues to communicate on - I checked). I thought I could connect the laptop manually by typing the IP address, subnet mask, router addr, the DNS, the ISP, or whatever was needed to get the laptop to connect. I haven't been able to find a way to do that.

So far, what I have attempted is: control panel>network and internet>network and sharing center - connect to a network
A little window pops up in bottom right corner of screen saying, "Not connected. No connections are available". But I know there is, cause my iphone is connected to it and I can see the data (IP address, subnet mask, router addr, the DNS, the ISP, etc.) associated with it.

A:Wireless: iphone - yes, W7 - no

Food for thought.If you were to connect to this unknown network you would be in affect breaking the law. It is called "piggy backing". = using someone else`s purchased bandwidth\product without their knowledge or consent.Not knowing the source of this network is also potentially putting your PC, data at risk.

I have been experiencing an issue on and off for a little while now where I'll be looking at a page that I've clicked on from facebook (usually one of those list ones like diply, with a few funny things per page and lots of clicking next), and I'll suddenly get a pop up on my screen from au_ocean.asia.gifttoday.club saying 'congratulations Apple user! You have bee randomly selected to spin and win.. yada yada'

The only way to get rid of the pop up is to hit ok, which takes me to another page of 'oh I can't believe I really won!' bull and a spinning wheel for me to try my luck. I've never spun the wheel, once I'm on that page I just hit the back arrow which takes me right back to my facebook feed.

At first I thought this was just my price to pay for getting sucked in by those stupid list sites, but just now I've had it happen when viewing a perfectly reputable business website that I travelled to from facebook.

How do I make it stop?
