Netscape late models

Q: Netscape late models

Two reasons I have stuck with Netscape 4.7: The bookmarks are presented in multiple columns rather than
a single scrolling column as is the default for both 6.2 and 7.0. I have not found a way to change to multiple

Also, in 4.7 it is easy to include a hyperlink in one's e-mail messages as I like to do, to make it easy for
the recipient to just click on a web site I have discussed in the text. I have not found this capability in 6.2 or
7.0. I have perused the help files in both without success.

Are these two features not considered worthy of continuing - or is it just that I have not learned how to
expose them for my use?


Preferred Solution: Netscape late models

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.)

Running Firefox, Netscape 7.2 and Netscape 8 on Wiudows 2000.

I have a bookmarks.html file, the same one being used by all browsers. It is jamming up my browsers--all of them. I can open and view the bookmarks.html file and view it as a web page and it looks all okay; but, if I place it where it should be and attempt to use it from the bookmarks are intended to be used, the browsers all jam on startup and will not display any web page.

The only way to close the browsers at this point it by using Task Manager.

A:Netscape bookmarks files jams up Firefox and Netscape

Sounds like your bookmarks.html file is corrupt for some reason.
Try and create a new profile in Firefox. If you don't have a problem, then slowly add your
bookmarks into the new bookmarks file. I don't use Netscape, so I can't help you there.

I've recently instaled the Netscape 8 browser. I previously used Netscape 7.2. When I try to "Send Page" in Netscape 8 it tries to open Outlook (which I do not use) instead of my usual Netscape email program. Also, when I click a link in an email, it opens Netscape 7.2.

How can I get Netscape Mail & Netscape 8 browser to work together?


A:How to get Netscape 8 to recognize Netscape Email

Guess that if you go to the control Panel, internet options and then to the "programs" tab that it now has Outlook listed for your Email.
Should be able to pick Netscape 8 from the drop down there.

Not sure why a link opens Netscape 7.2.

Here is a site.

If spammers already have your email address, is it too late to change it in any way or get a fake email address to throw them off?

A:Too late?

You could always get another address from your ISP or free from sites like Hotmail or Excite. I find it useful to have more than one for the reasons you are talking about...spam.

Installing a spam filter is an option as well.. One that seems to be popular is MailWasher: http://www.mailwasher.net/ and, it is free. Here are more programs: http://www.webattack.com/freeware/comm/fwspam.shtml

Depending on the security you are using, some provide methods of blocking spam. But alas, spamers are getting better at what they do!

Hello everyone, I'm doing some research trying to find out: what other network models exist or have been in existence besides the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite?
So far its been a confusing process because I've been mixing up articles on protocols themselves and the articles on the network models I'm looking for so far I've found:
Cisco's 3 Layered Model
Hierarchical internetworking model
Can you guys please help me get in the right direction by identifying the network models other than OSI and TCP/IP that you know of? Your help would be very much appreciated

Most so-called Topseller models are not available anywhere. Why? Online vendors seem to have an abundance of only three P50 models, while one or two of a very few others trickle in sporadically, most not at all. Is this the way Lenovo releases these machines now? It used to be that models announced near the end of a calendar year would be stocked everywhere in great numbers by early spring, often at very good prices. Maybe having so many problems has held them back.

I want to buy a new laptop with i3 but i learnt some have ultra low voltage 330um(1.2ghz) which gives low clock speed instead of 330M and others which give better clock speed(over 2ghz).

Look at this link. Apparently, the 330 UM and the 330 M are both mobile.

My laptop (toshiba L550-117) died a couple of days ago after a long line of service. As a replacement my eye has fallen on a Satellite P50-C-17J for it's superb specs.
But, my supplier in the Netherlands told me that it is End of life and therefore no longer available. I believe that is the case for all the P50-C series.

When do the new models (P50-C) become available?
Or is there a suitable alternative maybe?

I can't find one that's not a P50-C series myzelf.

Maybe this is not the right place to ask for this, but I don't know where else.
Resume min. specs:
- Sixth generation Intel? Core? i7
- NVIDIA? GeForce? GTX? 950M
- 8gb memory expandable to 16gb
- ssd approximately 128gb + approximately 500gb hdd

A:When new models Satellite P50-C become available?

I think the P series is discontinued.
How about the L series or S series? The higher spec ones are similar.

We have three G50 laptops all very similar i3 processors memory etc and yet all three differ in so many ways, these were purchased for a charity run pre school so budgets are very tight and the laptops where aquired over and 18 month period i beleive. Because the school uses these laptops for producing the the personal reports on the children and these laptops are taken out of the school grounds we have had to ensure the drives are encrypted, so the extra cost of upgrading these to Win 10 Pro and enabling Bitlocker has been inversted. Each device was upgraded to Win 10 after there where purchased and odd things where noticed, one would not support the USB ports on bootup so the having the laptop on start with the USB pen drive with the key on would not work so a password had to be used in stead.

If I get a lenovo T61 with windows 7 32 bit can it can I upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit? Are all lenovo T61 think pads wireless? 

A:Are all T61 models equal

All T61 machines are 64 bit and can run a 64-bit OS.  There is no such thing as 32 bit -> 64-bit upgrade.  It needs a fresh install.  The same license is good for both, but you would need recovery disks.  T61 machines are not all the same:  14.1: tall-screen (4:3), 14.1" wide-screen and 15.4" wide screen.  There are difficulties in getting a fresh win 7 install working, related to system update.  Microsoft has not paid much attention to windows 7.

Solution wanted: I want to be able to have one base image / drive for all machines. The problem I keep running into is drivers. I want to have one drive that I can clone and pop it into any one of those 5 models and it will pick up the correct drivers and
work right out of the gate.
We have to update our image every so often and with having to update for 5 different PC's it becomes quite time consuming. Having one master drive would be much more efficient.

I have IBM Aptiva computer, 733 MHz, 20 GB hard drive, 128 MB Ram.
I use Netscape 4.7 and Netscape 7.0. I use MailWasher for spam.
I have "remember password" checked in both. When I try to get my mail from Netscape
7.0, I am ask for my password and when I type it in, I receive my mail. When I
try to get my mail in 4.7, I am ask for my password, but when I type it in, I get
a message "invalid password" and I can't get my mail. I have Netscape 4.7
as my default browser. In MailWasher, I always change to the mail program that
I want to use before trying to get my mail. I'd like to know why both ask for my
password and why the password works in Netscape 7.0 and doesn't work
in Netscape 4.7 which is my default? Now, you ask, why do I use both? Well, each
has some things that I dislike and some things that I like, but one of the main reasons
is, I somehow lost my newsgroups in Netscape 4.7 and I can't resubscribe. When
I try to resubscribe, I keep getting a message to contact my provider, etc. I get
the newsgroups fine in 7.0. If I can get my newsgroups back in 4.7, I may decide

I have been having problems with one of my computers for a few weeks. At this point, it reboots by itself and most of the time I can't connect to the internet. MS internet explorer stopped working a while ago and firefox was not connecting due to a proxy stoppage. I did not set it up to connect via proxy. It is running Windows XP Pro version 2002 service pack 3.

MS security essentials is the virus program and it has been ineffective. It has identified and removed several trojans multiple times and they just keep reinfecting. I was able to get it to boot in safe mode, at which time I used ATF cleaner to delete the contents of the caches.

My brother is having a problem at one of the sites he supports, and, since I have no DSL experience (DSL is like the Holy Grail in South Africa... highly sought after, but basically considered a myth) I am turning to you, my faithful brethern, to help out:

Scenario: Windows NT Small Business Server v4.5 running Exchange and Proxy
Server. Client has just replaced their dial-up Internet connection with a DSL
connection. Everything worked fine with RAS dial-up, but now:

Problem: Microsoft Exchange and Proxy start up before the PPPoE client software (EnterNet v1.4 from Efficient Networks) establishes a connection. Therefore, the Internet Mail Connector on Exchange will not send mail (it doesn't think there is a route to the Internet -- a restart of the service after the DSL connection is activated fixes) and Proxy server will not start (also because it cannot find an external interface -- a restart of the service after the DSL connection is activated also fixes).

Question: Does anyone know how I can configure this box so that Exchange and Proxy start up ok before the DSL connection, or get the DSL connection to start up before the Exchange and Proxy services?

A:Fan Size? (before its too late)

Most common sizes are 80mm and 120mm. 92mm is also common but not as much as the previous two. If you measured your current space at 80mm then that's what you have. Fans are pretty cheap as well.

I am a late adopter of Windows 8. I started with MS-DOS and eagerly bought each new iteration of a new OS and was fairly happy except for ME, a disaster for me, and Vista, which was lacking drivers. When Windows 8 was approaching I read articles, postings on forums, and saw pictures of the painfully cute "Start" page. I decided to wait.

My waiting ended when I bought a new little laptop last week. Of course, it had Windows 8. For two days I hated Windows 8. I struggled with a very different OS. I was very, very pleasantly surprised to learn that all of my legacy software that I deemed essential, even my 15-year old unabridged dictionary, loaded and ran without any problems. My Office 2003, which meets my needs, with Word and Outlook work fine. I had to re-install Windows 8 four or five times, I lost count, because of errors I made in setup. One gave me a "Start" screen with a third of the boxes only having color but no graphics and no labels.

On Day three it started making sense. I basically abandoned the "Start" screen and use the "Desktop" with the quick start toolbar just like I did with Windows 7.

I'm still learning my way around but it's quite workable.

I might finish learning Windows 8, now, about the time Windows 9 comes out.

Dell have provided an excellent ebook on "Windows 8 for Dummies" providing excellent information.

A:Free Help Here,to late for me

Those programs are on your recovery CD's. You're better off without all the other junk that comes installed. The first thing I do with a new machine is format and install a clean OS with no junk.

But an imaging app is really necessary---not just an option, unless you like reinstalling everything and losing files .

Hi all,

On the first boot of the day Windows fails a few seconds into loading and I am presented with the choices to start in safe mode, select last known good install etc. When I select the last known good install windows open normally and it will start fine any number of times that day without a problem.
The next day it is the same routine. Sometimes I go through the sequence twice but Windows XP always manages to load in the end.
I have SP2 and all the updates.

Any ideas please

hello & welcome to TSF ,

now what i need to do is go to your (device manager)

now if you see any (red or yellow) quotation marks , make a note of what they

now go to the (event veiwer) this is thru the (administrator tools) in the control panel
here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)

do you have a Windows Xp cd, not the restore cd's that come with some systems, the cd will have the Windows logo & 3D hollowgram/image on it

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

if you have (Windows XP Home Ed. sp2 ) then the cd will have to be that / if you have a cd with (Windows XP Home Ed. )you will have to sliptream (SP2 ) onto a disk that you create

this also applies to (Windows XP Professsional )

Creatine - Creatine helps out in 2 approaches: it can help one to carry more fat within the gym, consequently maximizing your workout by helping to carry nutrients that are desired for your Muscle Building Pills and it also aids recovery.

I can teach you in One minute, main thing, use the right mouse button a lot, and place your cursor on the right side of the screen or right click on the bottom left corner, it's actually easier than Windows 7. Also if you're on the start screen just type what you're looking for.

Dear All

Last night I was at my friend's house looking at funny videos on Youtube (using Internet Explorer - a recent version I believe)

Whilst doing this I clicked a link to another video from the list of 'Suggestions' (down the right hand side on youtube). Then my friend informed me the Laptop (Dell) belonged to their parent's workplace.

I am now wishing I hadn't clicked the Suggested video as it may not be deemed appropriate on a workplace laptop. Even the title of the video could be deemed inappropriate.

I deleted the link from the website history. But I am now thinking I need to try and remove all traces of it from the laptop, which I will have the opportunity to do this evening, so I would really appreciate your advice on how to do this.

I cannot download any software on to this Laptop and I only want to delete any trace of the youtube Suggestion that I clicked.

Please help as I am feeling rather stressed about this :-( Lesson learned I think. Many thanks.

A:Too late I've clicked it! Help!

This seems to be a topic that is beating a dead horse, but I have yet to find a definite answer, so forgive me.I am currently on the market for a Yoga,  and it's come down to the Yoga Pro 2 vs the ThinkPad Yoga. I have found a model which seems to suit all my needs but I am unsure if it has a digitizer which supports the pen. From what I have read, it doesn't include the pen, but some sources say you can buy a pen and use it on the screen while others just do not mention it. The model in question is: S1 12.5" with the i5 and 500GB HDD and 16GB SDD. Model #  20CD00CHUS. Beyond this, is there an easy rule of thumb to see which TPY have the digitizer?Thanks, and sorry agan for the overly redundant question.

A:Which TPY models have digitizer support?

Good day and welcome to the community.
Searching for that MT-M on the support site yields:
ThinkPad Yoga 20CD00CHUS
i5-4200U(2.6GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HD, 11.6in 1366x768 LCD, Wireless Option, Bluetooth, Intel HD Graphics, UltraNav, Secure Chip, 8c Li-Poly, Win8 Pro 64
IIRC, no 1366x768 LCD models were equipped with a digitizer. That was an option only with the FHD panels.
Looking at the PSREF: http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/91 bears this out. A quick scan of the table show the 1366x768 models as multitouch, but without digitizer pen support. The specific model above is down near the bottom of the listing.
Hope this helps.

Help!Last night I purchased the i7 HP Spectre from John Lewis:http://www.johnlewis.com/hp-spectre-x360-13-4129na-convertible-laptop-intel-core-i7-8gb-ram-512gb-ss...I was under the belief, due to pricing, that this was the same as PC Worlds i7:http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-spectre-x360-qhd-13-3-2-in-1-ash-silver-10...But I have now noticed different product codes, and of course I want the newest/best for the such similar prices:13-4172na (PC World)13-4129na (John Lewis)Can anyone work out the release dates or any other differentiation? Have been unable to work it out from the HP website etc. Need help asap as I may be cancelling my order... any help appreciated! 

A:HP Spectre - difference between models

HP's product coding is just not very transparent but it is very possible laptops with the same specs have multiple product numbers depending on distribution channel. I am sure John Lewis and PC World is each big enough to receive dedicated model numbers from HP. I have scoured the spec lists for you on both these laptops and as far as I can ascertain, they are identical: same processor, memory, solid state drive, wireless card, screen resolution. Functionally I can see no difference.

Looking for a new notebook. Cannot easily tell from the usual descriptions which have a trackpoint pointing device. A list of models or model families would be very helpful.Thanks: Leon

A:Which new notebook models have trackpoint?

I am not sure any HP laptops still have a trackpoint. All Lenovo Thinkpads still have them. There is virtually no consumer demand for trackpoints, a huge majority prefers the touchpad. I still use the trackpoint on my Thinkpad, but also use the touchpad.

Regarding a new 1 TB External HD.

There seem to be a zillion different reliability surveys out there.
You folks are the real experts, so let me ask here:

Is there any consensous as to which Brand and Model is considered "the best" regarding reliability for
an external 1 TB (or 1.5 TB perhaps) HD.

Really confusing knowing which to get.

My Seagate, with very minimal use, lasted only about 3 yrs.
Was only used for backing up, (once every week or two) and unplugged the rest of the time.
Quite disappointing.


A:HD: Reliability Of Different Brands/Models ?

Yep, I have had bad luck with the last 2 Seagates I have bought, one was a 2TB and the other 3TB. The 2TB lasted about 14 months, the 3TB (both only used as a backup) only lasted about 8 months, then fried itself, yet I have 2 WD 1TB that have lasted with no probs for 3-4 years, and 1 has games installed on it.

Next week I am buying 2 new HDD's both WD a 3TB & 4TB, then 2 weeks later a Samsung 120GB 850 Evo, for my windows drive as I only use about 75GB as it is, all my other stuff is on other drives.
