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.)

Windows live mail is the succesor of outlook express.
Works well.
I am using the 2009 version as the newest version is somewhat
limited and I don't like the interface.

Hi,

I'm looking at getting a bt headset for use with Office Communicator/Live Messenger. I'm on a Dell D630, 7 Ultimate 64bit, 8GB RAM. I'm tempted to just buy a cheapo headset and see if I can get it working, but wondered if anyone knew of a (cheapish) bt headset that they'd definitely got working with 7?

For anyone considering something similar, I got me an Iqua BHS-603. Plugged it in, 7 did it's thing, configure OCS and Live Messenger, all good. And it was half price at the moment too.

Bought a new laptop and been having problems with bsod every day, which came up as Driver IRQL not less or equal and further down, tcpip.sys. I left it at the sellers for a check-up and they could find no problems but will be restoring it to default. My question is what programs are safe to install when I get it back? The only programs I had installed on it were PC Tools Spyware Doctor, Norton and Microsoft Office (also normal applications like lastfm and spotify.) Are any of these known to be incompatible with Windows 7? Some forums have been saying bad things about PC Tools, some about Norton, and recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Can anyone give any input about what programs are better/worse or proven to make the system unstable? Would be much appreciated //Anna

A:programs compatible with windows 7?

The error was most likely caused by out of date drivers (more than likely vista drivers) being loaded on the system. We see that here several times a day if not more. Many of the bsod problems in win 7 are either over zealous security programs, or bad drivers. The remaining few generally being caused by bad hard ware. The techs at the seller are rarely properly qualified to diagnose these issues. The people that are get higher paying jobs in the IT sector.

Anyhow if the problem occurs after you get it back you can follow the bsod posting instructions here http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

and let the bsod troubleshooters here have a crack at helping you with it.

I'm about to leap into setting up a wireless router for the first time near my office desktop computer so that I can hardwire that computer, printer and cable modem, but also be able to communicate with another older computer with a new network adapter in my living room which will enable me to network from that computer and also be able to surf the Internet on my HDTV.

My initial research has me leaning towards a (Linksys 160) N router for strength of signal and distance, although distance is not really a factor for me at this time. A tech type friend of mine also suggested that I purchase a network adapter of the same brand as whatever router I decided on in order to get max speed performances. Apparently some brands work better/faster when coupled with their own brands even though other brands are supposedly manufactured with compatible standards. I have no reason to question him, but I thought I'd like to hear any other words of wisdom that would point me in the right direction for selecting these two pieces of equipment.

One further issue that's cropped up is this business of versions of hardware. At first I just presumed the most current or latest version would be best (as in Linksys 160N V1, V2, and now V3) but I've also seen comments that V1 is better than V2 for heavy loads, for instance...? While this particular reference was about a Linksys brand issue, I'm actually asking generally about how important it is to get the latest version of an... Read more

Hi All I just purchased a new Computer 64 bit with windows version 7. like most people I have problems finding a Email server that I like and actually works with it. I do not like Windows live at all and as you would know can no longer get just Windows Mail. I have been looking around for free or paid email programs that are completley Compatible and have been somewhat disappointed, although many forums suggest that the latest thunderbird is compatible or Eudora or paid Poco programs I have tired them all, no problems about them installing OK however they all give the same problem ie, when on a Web site and you wish to use the Web contact email, it does not reconize it and tells you that the Email program is not the default server or configures as the default, when you go into configure default it will not let you do it!.

Try as I have even with patches and registry changes recommended by Poco Help still no go!!! I have now left the Poco program on as I do like its setup and for that small inconvenience it is worth the $45 AUST, I have tried all the other recommened programs for 64 bit machines and they all!! do the same thing ie, do not recogize the Email program as the default server!

Poco has said that a new version will be issued fixing the problem but no date is forthcoming. Is there anyone out there who has had this problem or can give any suggestions to this problem.

A:microsoft windows live mail Not compatible with New Email systems

the email I received

Dear user,

In a few weeks, we will be making some changes to our email services that might impact your @outlook.com, @hotmail, @live, or @msn email account. Those changes will prevent your email from being delivered to the Windows Live Mail 2012 application you use.

In order to continue using Windows Live Mail 2012 to send and receive email for your account, you need to install the latest update published here.

If you use Windows Live Mail 2012 on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, we recommend that you switch to the built in Mail app in Windows to stay connected and get the latest feature updates on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Windows Live Essentials 2009 and 2011 are not supported anymore, and you will need to update to Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 and use the Mail app, or use www.outlook.com. To learn more about the Mail app, please click here.

We also recommend all Windows Live mail users on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 to upgrade to Windows 10 and use the built in Mail application to stay connected and get the latest feature updates.

We suggest saving this email so you can refer to it later.

Thanks for your understanding and continued use.

Hello Everybody,

I recently changed tv and internet providers and my new internet provider didn't provide me with an email address to replace the email address that i already have from time warner cable. My email account from time warner cable will still work until i officially cancel my account in person later this week. This email address is only used with family, co-workers, playstation network and as a recovery email address for my gmail which will soon become my primary email address. I can easily give family and co-workers my gmail but i still need a second address to serve as a recovery email for my gmail and for playstation network. I've already tried giving playstation my gmail but because it looks too similar to my username that can't be changed (i've already tried) they won't let me use my gmail for security reasons.

I know yahoo mail has a feature that lets you have 2 email addresses on one account and i was wondering if i can do the same thing with gmail since i'm not switching back to yahoo because of their servers being hacked.

Hi kats.

I thought I'd asked this once before, but I'll be darned if I can find it in a search of my own posts.

I have a client who wants to set up an internal e-mail server, i.e. just one mailbox on a file-serving machine, connected to a bunch of baby outlooks across the network, allowing all users to see one "pool" of incoming messages, and then pull them off onto their individual machines, so that they disappear from said server.

I know that I'm describing exactly the job of Exchange, but this is a small organization, and Exchange costs a wad, and the only server capacity needed is that of this two-tier mailbox. Are there other alternatives out there? Ideally, the thing I'm looking for would be simple enough for a (relatively) sharp db programmer (yours truly) to figure out, configure, and run, without too much hassle, but with enough power to go (and go gooooooooood) on a Win 2k network.

Your input is always appreciated.

Hi All,

I've been asked by a local Wine merchant if I know of any email programs to keep his registered members up to date with any specials going on. I figure it's a pretty simple solution he's looking for that could grow into something big, but we are talking about something that would be able to handle a couple hundred emails.

I know plenty about the internet and selling online, as well as advertising, but quite frankly have never bothered to learn much about email marketing. This is not a solution to spam unsuspecting people, but a necessity to generate and maintain newsletters and a contact database from people who specifically sign up and register for the service.

Can anyone point me to a product that they have used int he past, and would recommend.

Need some suggestions, recommendations and help for email hosting service provider, below are the requirement:

1) 100+ mailboxes ; each mailbox needs at least 500MB
2) forwarder -- can forward more than 50 email addresses
3) virus and spam filter(blacklist/whitelist on domain level; not just mailbox individually)

I have been looking into certain providers like:

1) intermedia.net(mail 100 plan): looks perfect to me but I am afraid about their reviews and support aren't that good

2) electricmail.com: they have pro services but quite expensive, it's about $5-6 per mailbox per account; with 100 mailboxes; it will cost about $500-600 amonth

3) gmail: it is almost like electricmail.com; but they have 10 G per mailbox with $5 per month per mailbox; however, gmail is still quite new and still in beta; I have heard many bad things like ppl missing their emails, etc... for personal is acceptable but not business

4) Phone support: 9-5 is good but 24x7 will be the best

I know that I can have another option which is hosting the email inhouse; however, the hardware, software and the dedicated internet service is too costly for me as of this moment.

Does anyone know if Quickbooks 2004 Pro is compatible for Windows 7.
 

A:Solved: Is Quickbooks 2004 Pro Compatible with Windows 7

No, you need to upgrade it. Even Quickbooks 2009 Pro is not compatible, let alone the 2004 version:

I just purchased a HP 4520S Laptop with Windows 7 Professional Edition. I am unable to connect to Westel 327 W modem wi-fi. It only works with a hard connection. I have an ACER with Windows 7 Home Edition that will connect to the same modem. I was able to connect at a different location that has a different modem. HP Tech Support told me that the Westel 327 W modem would not work with the Windows 7 OS.

Does anyone have any experience with this problem and do I need to buy a new modem ?

A:[SOLVED] Windows 7 compatible w Westel Modem 327 W

I got my answer from Frontier Communications. They will replace my modem free of charge. They said the old modem wi-fi would not work with Windows 7 Pro.

Recently, I've been attempting to use my NetGear WG111T adapter in order to connect to my wireless network. However, the software to install, even the most recent version, is not able to complete the necessary steps to establish connectivity. The provided "Smart Wizard" will load, and then disappear a second later. I am given no access to my network whatsoever.

I'm wondering if there's any way to fix this, or if there's a different adapter I could try? I've looked at the things regarding the WG111Tvx.inf file, but I am unable to locate it, and do not appear to have this file. The closest I have is WG111Tv.inf.

If one is able to provide me with this file, it would be most appreciated; failing that, I am open to suggestions for other USB adapter solutions.

Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition is this operating system compatible with most programs like photoshop 6.0,Printshop and other programs that I have been running with w98 2nd edtion?
I am breaking down and buying a "DELL" but Im worried my web cam"INTELL" will no longer work. Or my Surveyor webcam 32 won't work either. And all the other programs I have been running with w98.
Has the group had experience with programs that will no longer run? If I buy a new computer does that mean all my programs are worthless?
Just wondering before I take the plunge...

A:Windows® XP Home Edition compatible with most programs?

The adobe stuff will probably need an update to run. Adobe has them on thier website. Photoshop will need to be updated to 6.0.1 (free update)

Not sure about print shop.

Generally, I have not had as much trouble out of software as with hardware. I would research my webcam, printer and any scanner to see if it has XP support.

For Software, you can always try the compatability mode of XP.

Here is an paragraph from an article listed at
http://www.winplanet.com/winplanet/tips/3502/1
TIP 7. Don't Ask for Virus Problems

Most users have antivirus software installed either at work or home. If you don't, you definitely need to invest, not only in a package of software, but in the subscription to the updates. Office XP is a new product and your antivirus software may not be compatible. All reputable vendors have upgrades to integrate with Office XP. If you are having problems with the latest updates for your antivirus software, contact the software vendor immediately and ask for the update/upgrade that is compatible with Office XP.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

However reviewing many AV products only one lists XP as compatible. Draw your own conclusion upon review. It is possible
the programs can be upgraded or already cover XP but their websites do not mention that.

I wasn't sure where to post this, so please move, if it needs to be elsewhere.

I've got a windows 98 machine that refuses to send out email. I have tried Incredimail, OE, and Netscape, but all crash when I try to send email. "This program has perfromed and illegal opertaion and will be shut down".(or something of that sort)

I can get mail from anywhere but can never send. I have talked with my ISP several times, but they are pretty much out of options. They insist that the account is finem, and I do believe them. There web based email system works fine for me to send and recieve.

Things I've tried so far: IE repair tool, re-creating accounts, two new installs of Incredimail, upgrade of IE, deleted outbox files, and not to mention trying three different email programs.

Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

A:outgoing email closes all email programs

very odd problem...

is it possible to start windows 98 in safe mode and try it there?

There must be some sort of conflict. This may sound strange but on one of the email program forums I read that they recommended a user update his/her video drivers when they reported win98 crashing while sending mail.

Try safe mode first.
