an exciting set of new effects
more control over timing and synchronization
builds for diagrams
support for multiple effects simultaneously in a shape
more control of audio and video playback
a number of animation schemes

To view presentations saved in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that take advantage of these new animation features, you must have Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later and have Office Animation Runtime installed. Without these, animations will not run and the Web presentation may not play back as the author intended. For more information about using animation features in your Web presentation, read Animate Your PowerPoint 2002 Web Presentation.

Firstly, my home page is set up to open in Duckduckgo but it opens in Bing nevertheless. Microsoft Edge sets automatically its default search engine to Microsoft edge and does not allow to reset it to DUckduckgo. Secondly, even if I use Duckduckgo, Microsoft
Edge tracks my loggings. I keep deleting the logging but is there a way to remedy it? Is there enough users to file class action suit for violating users rights ( select engine and privacy issues). Some engines allow to clear all search history upon closing
the browser. Microsoft Edge does not provide this option. Although, Microsoft implies we are using Ducduckgo, they blatantly track us. Where the data go? To NSA?

Hi. Could one of you experienced techies please let me know which of the High Priority Microsoft updates I should install? I have been burned before by just downloading these updates without checking them out. So these updates would inclue
Cumlative Update for IE 7
Update to Frame 3.5
Internet Explorer 8 (I am really dubious about this one)
Update for Microsoft Silver light what ever in the heck that is and
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

Also is the microsoft malicicous software removal tool a good thing and if so I read some where that it should be updated every Tuesday. Do you recommend this?

Maggie:

Install the cumulative update for IE7 and the update for Microsoft NET Framework 3.5.

You don't need to install IE8, unless you want to upgrade from IE7.

You apparently already have Microsoft Silverlight installed, which is why an update for it is posted. Uninstall it in Add Or Remove Programs. You don't need it, and it's known to be problematic and to conflict with Adobe Flash Player.

I don't know why you're being prompted to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. It may be needed because of some program you have installed.

The Malicious Software Removal Tool is released every month. Go ahead and download it and let it run.

The Internet Mail Connector (IMC) enables Microsoft Exchange Server
to communicate with other mail servers via SMTP. When the IMC
receives an SMTP extended Hello (EHLO) protocol command from a
connecting SMTP server, it responds by sending a status reply that
starts with the following:
250-<Exchange server ID>Hello<Connecting server ID>

Where:
<Exchange server ID> is the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of
the Exchange server <Connecting server ID> is either the FQDN or
the IP address of the server that initiated the connection.

The FQDN would be used if the Exchange5.5 IMC is able to resolve
this information through a reverse DNS lookup; the IP address
would be used if a reverse DNS lookup was not possible or failed
to resolve the connecting servers IP address.

A security vulnerability results because of an unchecked buffer
In the IMC code that generates the response to the EHLO protocol
command. If the total length of the message exceeds a particular
value, the data would overrun the buffer. If the buffer were
overrun with random data, it would result in the failure of the
IMC. If, however, the buffer were overrun with carefully chosen
data, it could be possible for the attacker to run code in the
security context of the IMC, which runs as Exchange5.5 Service
Account.

It is important to note that the attacker could not simply send
Data to the IMC in order to overrun the buffer. Instead, the
Attacker would need to create a set of condi... Read more

This is a cumulative patch that includes the functionality of all
previously released patches for SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, MSDE
1.0, and MSDE 2000. In addition, it eliminates three newly discovered
vulnerabilities.

- Named Pipe Hijacking -
Upon system startup, SQL Server creates and listens on a specific
named pipe for incoming connections to the server. A named pipe is a
specifically named one-way or two-way channel for communication
between a pipe server and one or more pipe clients. The named pipe is
checked for verification of which connection attempts can log on to
the system running SQL Server to execute queries against data that is
stored on the server.

A flaw exists in the checking method for the named pipe that could
allow an attacker local to the system running SQL Server to hijack
(gain control of) the named pipe during another client's
authenticated logon password. This would allow the attacker to gain
control of the named pipe at the same permission level as the user
who is attempting to connect. If the user who is attempting to
connect remotely has a higher level of permissions than the attacker,
the attacker will assume those rights when the named pipe is
compromised.

- Named Pipe Denial of Service -
In the same named pipes scenario that is mentioned in the "Named Pipe
Hijacking" section of this bulletin, it is possible for an
unauthenticated user who is local to the intranet to send a very
large packet to a specific named pip... Read more

Microsoft temporarily suspends Windows 10 preview build availability ahead of RTM


Quote:




The Windows 10 RTM (release to manufacturing) milestone is close at hand.

On July 13, Microsoft temporarily suspended availability of Windows 10 for PC preview builds in preparation for the upgrade process, which commences July 29.

"Windows Insiders have been the first to see our work on Windows 10 at every stage. Now you will also be the first to get a build flighted to you using the channels that we'll use for targeting and deploying to PCs for our staged rollout," said Gabe Aul, head of the Windows 10 Insider program in a July 13 update to a previous blog post.

More from Aul:"We're suspending the availability of Windows 10 builds briefly while we prepare for that (rollout), and the next build that we flight to you will be delivered using the production channels. Starting tomorrow (July 14), we will also not be delivering any additional ISOs at this point as we really need Insiders to be using, stressing, and validating our distribution and upgrade processes. We'll make ISOs available again in the future, but for now we ask you to upgrade your current build via Windows Update once the next build is released."

repositories such as Exchange directory, Active Directory,
third-party directory services, and proprietary databases, for the
purpose of ensuring that the data in each is consistent, accurate,
and can be centrally managed.

A flaw exists that could enable an unprivileged user to access and
manipulate data within MMS that should, by design, only be
accessible to MMS administrators. Specifically, it is possible for
an unprivileged user to connect to the MMS data repository via an
LDAP client in such a way as to bypass certain security checks.
This could enable an attacker to modify data within the MMS data
repository, either for the purpose of changing the MMS
configuration or replicating bogus data to the other data
repositories.

Maximum Severity Rating: Moderate

When people surf the Internet on their web browsers, it's just a matter of time when they hit a page that has an online ad which then tries to install something on their computer. This week, the Microsoft Malware Protection Center team announced it will have some new criteria to define when such activity crosses over into the annoying. and sometimes malicious, adware side.

Pop-up online ads have to have a working close window, according to Microsoft's new adware policies.

In a blog post, Microsoft stated that online ads start to cross over into adware territory if they run programs on a user's PC and create "notifications promoting goods or services in programs other than itself." If that occurs, Microsoft states there must be a clear way to close such an ad, like a prominent "X" or a close button in, for example, pop-up ads.

Ads that show messages such as "Your PC performance is poor" must also clearly mention they are ads and not suggest they are in fact warnings generated by a PC, under the new rules. Finally, if a program is installed via an online ad on a computer, there must be a clear way to uninstall it. Also, the name of the program in the uninstall listing must exactly match the name that's shown in the ad.

The new adware policies will go into effect on July 1, in order to give online ad companies time to change the... Read more

Hi. I have Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 2.0 and Line 6 Tone port ux1. I've managed to get my TAPCO mixer to record on two separate channels through the sound card input on Cakewalk and one separate guitar on a third channel through Line 6 USB software input. What I'd like to do is record one more separate channel using the Line 6 software (gearbox) through the "line 1 and 2" source select. When I plug in two guitars into the right and left inputs, the gearbox software shows independent signals from either line in. The sound from both guitars can be heard, however only one guitar is recorded in both selected channels in Cakewalk. Is there a way of sending two separate channels out of gearbox through the USB?

I have tried everything I know to do.  I am an IT Pro with 30 years experience and this one has me stumped...
With the July cummulative update to Windows 10 15063, the Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth driver has completely failed.  It will not load and reports it is corrupted or unusable.  Here's what I have tried...
1. Remove and reinstall driver - Fail
2. Ensure latest driver from Dell, remove and reinstall - Fail
3. Download latest driver package from Killernetworking.com - Fail
4. Roll back CU (KB4025342) - Success
5. Reinstall CU (KB4025342) - Installs, but kills the bluetooth driver again
6. Contact Dell Support - Fail - Technician said it's a Microsoft problem and I would have to contact them for support. (Ironically: I just bought this laptop two months ago and purchased a 4year premium support contract!).
7. Roll back CU (KB4025342) permanently - Not possible, as it is managed by our Windows Update Server on corporate domain and would effect everyone.  I could do this, but it would be a last resort, and it's unknown what vulnerability I would expose the rest of our W10 clients to.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, what did you do?

Dell:  Can you please investigate and resolve?  All bluetooth functionality is broken so long as this CU is in place.

Thank you!

Secunia PSI tells me that Microsoft Word 2002 is insecure. Threat rating is category 4, HIGH! There is a Download Solution button provided, but I can't access anything when I click on it. Then I have the situation below and I wonder if that is the same item as this one in PSI.

Windows Update gives me an important update of 52.3 MB and it is Office XP Service Pack 3. I have tried to install this item 3 times. It runs to a certain point and then tells me that I have to insert the disk. My system is OEM and I don't have any disk. So what do I do?

A:What do I do with Microsoft Word 2002

Although not certain, I believe the two problems are related and actually are describing the same problem - the fact that the program is not fully updated.

Check out the following article: Service packs, updates, and security patches may require the Office XP CD-ROM. More information is here: Download details: Office XP Service Pack 3 (SP3).

But perhaps of greater importance, Word 2002 is not compatible with Vista: Windows Vista Compatibility Microsoft Microsoft Office Word 2002 and that may be part of the reason you are having troubles with it. You need to upgrade to a more recent version.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

How do I delete a saved file in the document recovery task pane in Microsoft Word 2002. I have clicked on my documents and deleted it there. I have also clicked on more documents in the recovery task pane and deleted it there. When I right click on the saved doc. it says What's this. Please help.
 

A:Microsoft Word 2002

I have Word 2003 but I assume it's pretty much the same.

That list is populated based on what you see when you click on File in Word which shows the last documents that you opened (Recently used file list). Deleting a document doesn't remove it from the Task pane but you won't be able to access it since it no longer exists. All you need to do is open existing documents until that particular one no longer shows in the list.

If you don't want that many to show you can change it by clicking on Tools - Options - click on the General tab and change the number there.

At work we use Microsoft Outlook 2002, and one of the computer techs set up a calendar to be shared amongst everyone in our building. I can find the calendar, and I can add it to favorites, but I can't get it to come up as my primary calendar when I cilck on "Calendar" under "Outlook Today" (the tree menu on the right).

How do I select this calendar to appear as my default calendar when I open up Outlook, instead of having to open it via favorites?

Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Microsoft Outlook 2002

Hi Steve.
As far as I know, you can't switch default calendars.
What you can do is add a new calendar which will appear side-by-side with your default calendar in the same window.
In Outlook, click File>New>Folder.
Give the calendar the name you want then select "Calendar Items" from the drop down menu in the "Folder Contains" box then click OK.
Next you'll have to map it to the new calendar's location.
Right click your new calendar and select properties.
Click the "Homepage" tab and use the "browse" button to the location of the new calendar, click OK.
When you open outlook today, click "Calendar" like you normally would. You will see the new calendar you created listed under "My Calendars". Click your new calendar and it will appear side-by-side with the default calendar. You can toggle between the two as well if you like.
The only drawback is that reminders only function in the default calendar.

From the start button, then to Programs, I go to Microsoft Works, which brings up the task launcher. Excel, power point, streets and all that is in the package work normally, except for Word and Works and any of the topics that fall in the same of workds or word. Such as letters, labels, etc.
When I click on it to open, I get a box that pops up and reads as follows.
The Microsoft Works Task Launcher cannot access the task selected. Files needed to start the program maybe missing, corrupt, or may have been deleted. To restore or replace these files, you will need to re-install the program.
I have uninstalled and re-installed 3 times and it never changes. Anything that I previously already had in a wps files cannot be opened. I cannot make any sense of it at all. In the add remove programs, Works and Word are both installed and the following shows it.
