sent messages dont save (should be simple to solve)

Q: sent messages dont save (should be simple to solve)


When using my hotmail account I want my sent messages to save in the designated folder but they do not. How can I change this?



Preferred Solution: sent messages dont save (should be simple to solve)

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.)

ok i was stupid enough to use Cox communication cd and now that cd has taken over my computer, i went in to add and remove programs and took it off however cox is still lurking in my computer for example they changed my internet explorer instead of an E i get cox and they just modifed some of my programs to make it thier isnt that quaint any suggestions on removing those stupid things

A:another simple problem i cant seem to solve

My guess is most likely just have "Cox" branding of IE but it's still IE. Check here in the registry and see what you find.

Start Regedit and navigate to

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

Delete the keys for "BrandBitmap" and "SmBrandBitmap"

Then restart Internet Explorer for the change to take effect.

Here's the situation: I was about to back up my files by transferring them to an external hard drive and was in Documents for that purpose, when I did something that triggered a 'spinning circle' (called a Throbber I believe). I waited for a few minutes but the throbber continued to be there, and the computer continued to do whatever it was doing, so I closed the Windows File Explorer, hoping to start fresh without a throbber. But when I opened the new Windows Explorer the spinning circle was still there and instead of being there for a few seconds--as the green line went left to right across the top and then presenting Documents, Downloads, Music, Videos, etc. when the green line completed its journey, with the spinning circle disappearing as it always does at that point-- the throbber remained, as the green line went 99% of the way across and then stopped.

My initial reaction was to give it as much time as it needed, especially since the words 'This folder is empty' were there, which is always the case when I first open the Windows Explorer for the day, but 'This folder is empty' normally disappears after a few seconds along with the spinning circle, but this time, because it was not completing the process for some reason, the spinning circle remained. I decided to give it more time, but now 'giving it more time' is obviously not enough since that was 20 hours ago! The green line is still there, 99% of the way to complet... Read more

Hey, i am having a problem loading specific videos, and i cant seem to figure out which player it is that won't load so therefore i can't even begin to solve the problem. Here is the info i have including links to specific videos:

When i click on the video it takes me to the page and it shows a big square with an Icon in the corner of a Square,Circle, and Triangle.
Here is a Link to a Video that i cannot play:


I have downloaded the latest version of Macromedia Flash Player, I have Windows Media Player 10, and I just downloaded the newest version of Quicktime, I have the Divx codec, im running Windows XP Pro if that helps at all. I did put in my system specs if you know how to check them out, I don't know how to do that since this is my first time here.

Anyway this is really annoying since it happens on alot of sites when im trying to watch funny videos that people tell me to watch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello fellow!

I am new to these forums, and have decided to give them a question of my own.

I have a network of PCs of 100+ computers, and have a single file that I need to place on every computer. They all have a single folder shared, which is named exactly the same as the next, so my question is this:

Is there a command that I could use to copy a file from my computer to the folder on each of the Computers on my network, without having to type the command 100+ times?

In a simple way, I am asking this -- Is it possible to do this:

copy "c:\something.bat" "\\*\c:\shared folder\something.bat"

I am sure that we have all had a bit of command line experience, so this command should be pretty easy to understand.

i have a major problem and i dont know how to solve it. please can you help. i work from home and have a newly made pc with several hdd and quite suddenly windows 7 has completely formatted 1 of my drives and has made it into an active recovery partition and i cant delete the thing i make regular backups with ghost of my c: and all my other drives are just there as storage. i originally had c: / d: / e: / f: / and i: drive. the i: drive is ghost images and is always hidden so family and kids dont trash it. but for some reason drive e: is no longer there. the drive at the top of the screen is the drive i want to reclaim but only get the option of help when i right click on it.

A:I have a major problem and i dont know how to solve it.

If the I:\ drive is a physical HHD (and not just a partition) you could format it completely using the Windows 7 install disk. You just run the disk up until just after you format the appropriate HDD.

Then boot back into Windows and it should be there again as normal.

If you need any more help or explanation just ask.

Hello! in dire need of some tech support. So here's the background... I was given a Toshiba Satellite A135 running on Windows 7. I got a virus and tried to DIY reformat. I DO NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL WINDOW 7 CD and was only given a "burnt copy of windows 7" by a friend.. So i searched online, especially utube, searching for how to reformat WITHOUT a cd and decided to follow what this guy said ()... The only FILES i backed up were my movies, music, word docs, and pdf's. So anything "driver" related i didn't back up.

i did the whole f8 thing WITH my friends burnt cd inserted (i dont know if that makes a difference). If you view the utube video, i got to around 2:10 and deleted EVERYTHING. First of all there were 3 disk partion options to select instead of just one like in the video. So i deleted all three because i assumed all 3 were infected. Either way it did not let me progress and i forgot what it said, but it gave me an error window stating something about a missing screen image.

So i restarted the whole thing and just like at 1:48 my laptop gave me the option to choose the OS i'd like to install. From a loooooooong list i just chose the first which is windows 7 Homebasic Activated. I click next, accept the license terms and just like in the utube video at 2:07 i choose custom (advanced). Now those 3 partitions have reappeared. So i chose "reformat" for all 3 (the last partition doesn't allow me to choose any o... Read more

i'm sure it must be an option or something, but i no longer have to ability to browse through files/folders/websites i have been to before in my computer / internet explorer.

that is a bad explanation so ill say it like this:
you know in My Computer how if you have say 3 folders called "Super Cool", "Super Fish", "Super Shoe," and you type in the address bar the word "Super" how the drop down thing below where you type will show the folders, making them easier to access? my drop down thing does not show up any more. it's the same with websites in internet explorer.

i feel dumb asking, but does anyone know how to fix this? thanks.

A:Solved: simple problem dont know how to fix

Sounds like AutoComplete has been turned off. You can configure AutoComplete to save and suggest only the information you want. You can choose whether to use AutoComplete for Web addresses, forms, and passwords, or not use it all. You can also clear the history for any of these.

1.. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2.. Click the Content tab.
3.. Click the Settings button beside AutoComplete.
4.. Select the check boxes for the AutoComplete options you want to use.

Can't remember how to remove old backups to make room for new ones. Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

A:How to remove old backups from Simple Save

Hi and welcome to the Forum.
Just read through the user manual for HP Simple Save. First thing I notice is that by default it saves the backup files to the primary Hard drive on your computer. That to me is a complete waste of time. So for some reason you can't get into your hard drive. How do you restore from the backup files?
Anyway to clear old back ups just go to the folder where they are stored and I'm sure the individual files will show a created date. Just highlight and delete the old ones.
Then IMHO your best plan would be to clear this HP bloatware from your PC and download and install Macrium Reflect. This free software will solve all your back up needs. Ideally back up to an external hard drive.

I recently purchased memorex simple save photo and video backup discs. they automatically find pictures and download. It would not download. The error screen said it wouldn't work because i had a 64 bit version of windows. The compatibility on the box said it worked w/ 2000/xp/vista. I tried the compatiblity setting on computer but it said i needed to log on as an administrator which i already was! Help!

A:can't get memorex simple save to work!

The SimpleSave disks are an over-priced gimmick. Memorex has obviously not updated the software to work with Windows 7. Store your pictures in the My Pictures folder, and just use regular DVDs to back them up. Windows 7 supports DVD burning natively, so you don't even need to install any software. Just drag and drop from the hard drive to a blank disk.

I bought an HP 2 TB Simple Save USB3 automatic hard drive and have had great service from it in association with my Dell desktop for some years now.  Recently we moved house, downsized and discarded the desk top in favour of a more modern Dell laptop, recently upgraded to Windows 10.  Problem is the hitherto silent operation has changed.  There's a quite loud chime whenever the Simple Save is active. Ie, at start up and whenever it kicks in after 5 minutes of inactivity on the laptop.  Of course I could just turn off the speakers but I often run some music and the chime just ploughs over the top of whatever I have on.  The manual doesn't help me.  Can you?

Hi jojo
Although your E-Mail address is shown with many others you still have to enter your password. I think MSN does this as a convenience so you don't always have to type your E-Mail address every time you sign in. If you don't have different pass words go to where you sign in and click tools...Options..Privacy..and put a check in the box where it says....Always ask me for my password when checking Hotmail or opening other .net passport-enabled web pages

Hey Windows 8 experts,

I just installed Windows 8.1 and I notice that after installing some software and wanting to save the registration keys as a text file during setup I would get this error message:

"You don't have permission to save to this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission." Would you like to save to your Documents folder instead?

But once I say yes to saving to the Documents folder and completing the setup, I have no troubles moving the file to another location using the Windows file explorer. (I just have to confirm that I have admin rights when I do so)

Is this normal behavior?

A:You Dont Have Permission to Save to this Location...

Yes it is totally normal. Windows by default protects the system folders like Windows and Program Files so that even an administrative user cannot save into them. As you mentioned you can save file in question elsewhere and then move files to these protected system folders but even then by default you will be asked to confirm the move and use built-in administrative rights, see screenshot:

i have got windows xp pro,
thanks in advance t4lor.

A:pop up turned of but still get popup blocked, and also i dont have save web page as:

This is not very clear to me. I think you are saying that you have some sort of pop-up blocker that is still blocking pop-ups when you think the blocker has been turned off. What pop-ups do you want to see, and where do you want to see them from ? It's hard to know what to tell you without the name of the blocker or the source of the pop-ups you want to see. It is possible that a firewall or something else is doing the blocking. You will have to give more information before anyone can help.

I've had my HP Simple Save 2 TB External Hard Drive for a few of years now, it's served me great, I used it for storing all my photos but the usb connector has snapped off from the small CD drive inside the casing.
This has simply been through use, it was working fine, not wobbly or mistreated in any way, it must have just came to the end of it's life and now I can't hook it up to my computer to get the photos, I'm desperate to get them back, wedding photos, birthdays etc most of you must know how I'm feeling.
So I looked up a few solutions, one was to buy a USB-to-IDE/SATA adapter and use that to connect to the computer, well it works as far as recognising that a device is connected but won't load the files or folders to view.

As I've looked around apparently the small CD drive that's inside the case has software that my computer automatically loads? Now this is where I'm lost, how do I manage to get this to work?
I'm almost at my wits end, as far as looking every single day on Amazon and eBay to buy a new one to transfer the CD drive onto the broken one to load it up and get my photos back, IF that would even work, I'm not sure.

So if you have any suggestions/help please please get in touch, thanks.

All of a sudden the messages I send from my hotmail account using outlook express are not saved in the sent message folder anymore. In the tools - option - send tab, the "save copy of sent messages in sent items folder " is thicked as it should be if I wanted to save the messages.
Plus when I write a new message, the option to check spelling is in the grey color typical of not active functions and in the options I can't find anything that would able it.
Thanks for any help!

I'm using Mozilla 1.5. All of a sudden it stopped saving the messages I send. I can't find anything relating to this in any of the properties setup or any other place. Is there a way to turn this save function back on?

Hi guys, I just upgraded from win7 to win10. Smooth upgrade, but I noticed all my textfiles on my desktop and sticky notes from win7 disappeared. So I decided to restart my pc. What I noticed is on the bottom right of the screen as I reboot, it says something along the lines of "Unable to access data and documents because you are not signed in. Please sign out and re-sign in". I also notice that anything I do on thje computer gets reverted back to default after the computer is shutdown/rebooted. Now the odd thing is that my computer is called "HP" even from windows 7. So even after I sign out and sign in, I can only see "HP" as an option and no "Guest" or anything else. But even logging in as "HP" still won't recognzie me as the owner. PLease help. Thanks!

A:Upgraded to Windows 10, won't recognize as owner, settings dont save

Yes anything that was on your Windows 7 install will not transfer over to 10, unless it is programs and documents in folders that the OS install is set by Microsoft to transfer over. Microsoft has deemed prior editions of Windows incompatible with Windows 10, so you see a lot of issues crop up when you do a in place install. Always do a clean install, never let Windows update. The update would have been pending for reboot after idle. It is easy to stop the install if people just kept an eye on what they allow to be downloaded by Microsoft Update on the prior and current version, along with shutting down their device when not using it, instead of leaving it running and to go into sleep which can be woken up when Windows checks for updates.

As for logging in. You have to use a Live account with your email and a password. Otherwise you have to use a Local account. It is easy to go and fix if you download the Windows 10 PE and install on a USB stick.

I have a HP Simple Save external hard drive 1 TB which saved all of the files from my old HP desktop computer which was old an giving me problems suggesting it might crash and burn so I bought a new HP ProDesk 400. Both desk tops had Windows 7 64 bit OS.  I am not a computer savvy person. The Simple Save external hard drive had about 410 GB of data from my old computer on it and about 590 GB of space left on it. My computer person transferred all of my files from my old desktop to the new desktop.  I have used my new HP desktop for about a week before I realized I need to back up new files on it.  I was hoping that I could just plug the HP Simple Save into my new desktop and it would pick up copying only new files from the past week, not the old files it already had saved from my old desktop. However when I ran the back up today on 12/4, an error message came up which said the following: The last back-up did not complete successfully.  I then saw that there is only 87 GB of free space left on the Simple Save and that under today's back-up about 262 GB was used to create a system image and 171 GB went to backup of data.  So my take on this is that the Simple Save did not pick up where it left off from my old desktop and that it is recognizing the new desktop as a separate computer which it is (I was hoping it had the ability to recognize files as already saved and skip them and only copy new files.   Questions: 1) Am I cor...
