Q: can't access specific individual files...Dr. Watson?

Windows XP Pro SP3
I have 4 WD external HDD's purchased between 2004 and 2008. On these harddrives are various files, including but not limited to the following:
+backups for my primary hd
+tv shows
+movies
+program installers
+personal movie collection used for editting
I have found that certain files cause windows explorer to crash - be they movies, tv shows, installer files, files on backup, etc. - when highlighted and cause Dr. Watson to go bonkers. There seems to be no connection: files with similar sources, extensions, sizes, use dates, names, pathnames, etc. seem to work fine. In all there are just over 20,000 files, of which maybe 30 cause this problem. It is possible in transfers they were just simply improperly transferred (causing pieces of the file to be lost forever), but there is a file I KNOW that happened to and Dr. Watson never went bonkers and Explorer never crashed when I selected it; it was an .avi of "Beetlejuice" whose transfer was terminated before completion, and all it does when selected is simply not play in WMP. Any ideas?

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.)

Where can I get specific individual .dll files? How difficult is it to update a .dll file?

I have been downloading and running various .dll repair programs that claim to fix everything. Unfortunately, none of these programs have fixed or replaced the .dll files my System File Checker lists as corrupted and not reprojectable.

I am looking fo these specific files used by Windows Defender in Windows 7:

MpEvMsg.dll.mui
MsMpRes.dll.mui
MpAsDesc.dll.mui


I have never manually installed a .dll file, but I learn quickly and know how to follow directions. Can someone point me to a "how-to" instruction list for replacing corrupted .dll files? Is it a relatively simple task once I have good .dll files? I would rather not have to pay $200 to someone like the Best Buy Geek Squad just to make what hopefully are minor system changes. Any advice is appreciated.

A:Where can I get specific individual .dll files?

You can extract them from the win 7 install media,

Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

If you don't have one you can download one here,

I just used 7-Zip and found those files in the install.wim, you have to grab the right folder once inside but it's all explained in the tutorial.

Hi All,

I have a workbook consisting of 10 worksheets. First three worksheets contains Pivot Table, which gets the data from 4th, 5th and 6th worksheets. 4th, 5th and 6th worksheets gets the data (using a web query) from an external CSV file. I want to have a "Refresh Data" on the fist sheet, which is when clicked, refreshes the external data and the pivot tables in the following sequence :-
Refresh the data on 4th Sheet.
Refresh the data on 5th Sheet.
Refresh the data on 6th Sheet.
Refresh the Pivot Tables on 1st sheet.
Refresh the Pivot Tables on 2nd sheet.
Refresh the Pivot Tables on 3rd sheet.

I used "ThisWorkbook.RefreshAll", but it refreshes the data in one go, not in the required sequence. I also tried "Sheets(index).Calculate" for different sheets, but it does not refreshes the external data.

Any help in writing the macro/subroutine to achieve this functionality would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nayan

You may have to install Word via her account--assuming her access to programs is blocked at this point. This way probably is the easiest way to proceed at this point. You can always uninstall Word later.

okay, this is a weird problem. I can use my internet just fine except for two specific web-sites (that I know of) that crash when I try to access them. those two websites are: What.cd and utorrent.com. when I type them into the search bar, I get this:

This webpage is not available
Google Chrome could not load the webpage because what.cd took too long to respond. The website may be down, or you may be experiencing issues with your Internet connection.

I know it's not the website because other people I know can access them just fine.


but there is an even stranger problem. When I do a google search in the URL bar, usually it works fine. but when I include the words "torrent" or "what" in the search, the browser crashes the same way. I can search for anything else and it works fine. But if one of those two words "torrent", or "what" is included, it crashes. what. the. hell.

You can redirect specific users My Docs folder to a network share. Then the files will not be stored on the local machine, and you can also include that network share in your daily backup routines. As for the other users, just leave their My Docs folder set to the default path, and their files will be stored on the local machine.

Does anyone know how to italicize (or otherwise change the format of) individual words within a given field in MS Access? Not the whole field, just the occasional word. Is there any workaround to the need for multiple fonts/formatting within a given field?

T. T.
 

A:Italicize individual words in Access

You can't do that with the standard textbox control. There are ActiveX or COM controls that can give you that kind of functionality; look for Rich Text Format controls. They're not the most reliable if you have a broad distribution across a variety of platforms, but if this is a single-user application there shouldn't be a problem.

I use an Access database to record donations to a ministry: donors info and donations tables. We send donor receipts for tax purposes. Currently, we Export a report to Word, then clean it up via macros. We have e-mail addresses for many donors. Rather than print, fold, stuff, and mail, we would like to e-mail receipts as PDFs to donors for which we have e-addresses in the database. Each receipt is a letter containing the donor's contact information, a standard message, and a list of the donations made for the year: pmt number, amount, and date. Currently, we have a Report in which all that information appears for all the donors. How can we automate the process of sending each donor his/her/their PDF receipt by email, for those for which we have the e-address? FYI, I am a novice; I learned enough to set up this database three years ago and it has worked well, but I am rusty on even what I built to get this going -- I can barely make minor modifications.

This brings me full circle with Access. I am now at the point in this particular database where I began. I now have 99% of it completed.

Here is the remaining 1% and it is the first major problem I ever encountered with Access. The problem itself is simple, I can not get Access to calculate values for individual records in a form. These calculations are done with an Event procedure, ON_Open instead of the controls source. I did it that way because I needed to do very complex lookups and calculations with the bound fields.

When the form is opened Access looks for this:

With CodeContextObject
Forms!WageCalc!Results = Nz(DLookup("[Rate]", "RATES", "[JobNo] &[Time]&[Class]='" & .JobNumber & .RateTime & .Class & "'"), 0)
End With

There are 3 rates for every class, and 13 classes. So there are 39 possibilities, but Access looks at the [Class] value in the first record and uses that Value for every record.

When I originally found this problem I was told that Access 2000 has a work around for this but I do not have the option to upgrade my users so I am faced with a problem.

The only thing I can think of is to create two fields for every record, one bound and one unbound. Do all my lookups and calculations with the unbound fields and then make the bound equal the unbound. It doesn't seem like a very good solution to me though but it would get the job done. Any suggestions?

Libraries are virtual folders not virtual files so to answer your question, no. Instead maybe use a symbolic link (made with mklink with the command line) and link the file in a certain folder. Or just put it in a folder already set to the library.

I know that on a standard case, one would plug the case HDD light straight to the motherboard. Okay,

So If you have 2 or more hard drives, and you want to know which one is being "accessed" where does one wire led's to?

This is going to be more of an art thing than it is actually useful. For my custom case, it will have a standard on light and a hdd light, but you can flip a switch and I will place LED's along with the wiring, So that when hard drive one is being accessed, you can see the red lights follow the wire to the motherboard. Power will just be green LED's and a green LED heatsink on the processor.

Welcome to the TSG forum.

Photographers own the rights to print the pictures .. And usually don't give you the readable Images that the camera took.
They probably have proprietary software to read the pictures ..
The discs you can't read are probably what you'd take to get them printed.
The images you can see .. Are low resolution copies that probably won't make good prints ..For previews only.

They don't want you to print them yourself or have anyone else do it ..They want to charge you.
What's the extension (file type) of the data files in the Disc that you can't view ???

I have installed software that can encrypt/ decrypt individual files/ folders or multiple files/ folders. It's pretty easy to use via drag/ drop folders/ files that you want to encrypt (accepts multiples) or select via right click context menu.

Right click a file/ folder to encrypt/ decryptDrag 'n' Drop multiples to encrypt/ decryptEncryted files have .pcr extensionIf you use the main program window to decrypt files or multiple files it totally and permanently removes encryption and restores the default file extension.

If you decrypt via click and open - you are asked for a password to open the file and it remains encrypted when you close the file.

My Mom just got a new HP Desktop computer with Windows Vista Home Premium installed. It has been fairly easy for me to figure out how to delete all cookies, temp internet files and history. My Mom wishes to be able to select which cookies and which temp. internet files to delete and which to keep. How does one do this in VIsta? She would also like to get to this point via clicking on a cookies icon set up on her desktop. How can I set this up for her? I know XP to some extent not Vista. Help! Please! Seriously!

I also found a Vista compatibility listing ( find.pcworld.com/56584 ) in PC World magazine relating to a patch that will allow the running of older software and games within Vista. Do you have any experience or tales relating to this? My Mom has a number of older Mah-jong games.

Thank you!

I have an old album that I copied from my original cassette tape. The tape was showing signs of wear. The software that I used at the time copied the entire album into one long file. Is there any software that will recopy this and break the album up into the individual songs on the album. The album is an old Golden Earring album. Am I going to have to use NERO 8 and copy the entire album one song at a time to a new folder?

I'm using Windows Home Premium x64, and I want to delete a single file from a backup created by system protection. When I open a restore point, It takes me to an address like "\\localhost\C$\@GMT-2012.03.14-xx.xx.xx" I can see and open all of the files on that folder, such as like play videos from it, but I cannot delete anything from it. When I try to access the folder through disk management, access is denied. how do I go about deleting individual files from the backups?

A:How do I delete individual files created by system protection?

Hello Bhootnat, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A restore point is different than a backup. You will not be able to delete a specific file included in a restore point. Any attempt to mess with a restore point like that would most likely end with the restore point no longer able to be selected to be used when doing a system restore.

Instead, you could only delete specific restore points if you like.

I have a Compaq server that's running Windows NT 4 with Service Pack 6. Insight Manager (a compaq monitoring system) keeps reporting that and error. When I check out the server there is a Dr Watson error on the screen, however when I check the Dr Watson log there is no entry for todays date. It says the last error logged was in April when I know there has been several errors since. It's it possible to disable the log file? Any suggestions?

There could be more than one reason why Dr. Watson is idle.

If you go to "Help & Support" on the start menu and type Setting Up Dr. Watson in the search box, it will take you to a page with some useful information!

So I'm not sure where this should go, but hey.. I'm going to go ahead and stick it here. I apologize in advance.

So pretty much I'm not sure what dr watson is but from a bit of googling it seems like it should be on my computer. However, when I try to click on a .avi file or movie the player I use, media player classic, will open, then come up with the error report screen. This problem doesnt' affect my .mpg files or .wma files, they're playing just fine. But usually when the media player classic freezes and sends an error report it will also say that Dr Watson needs to send an error report. I don't know whether this has somethign to do with codecs, or a virus, but it's happening with all my .avi files so I don't think they're corrupt. I've tried opening .avi's in all the other programs I have but they don't work Please help me? I hope the solution for this is easy.. I'm not that great with technology so I don't want to have to do a heap of stuff to do with the computer or anything. Thankyouuu

My question is similar. I'm new to Win7-64. I want to back up the entire system but will System Image Restore allow me to identify and restore individual files? Win7's normal back up function does that, but it doesn't save the OS and programs.

Thanks

A:System Image Recovery allow me to identify & restore individual files?

Hello Mark, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but when doing a System Image Recovery, you will not be able to pick and choose individual files and folders. It's an all or none deal.

However, you could use the tutorial below to manaully extract individual files and folders from within the system image if you like.System Image - Extract Files Using Disk Management

My bookmarks are a huge mess. When I used IE, I would go to the folder on the drive to organize them. Now that I use Firefox, I can't do that. I would like to find a program that gives me ease of organizing and will export the bookmarks as individual files, instead of one.

I'm interested in this: http://bkm.sourceforge.net/en/vbbkm.html but it's old and dead I think. Also I don't think it worked with Firefox.

I'm not interested in online managers and I don't have a real need for portability. I just want to sort and burn the folder.

Thanks.

I have a report that lists donors that are funding projects. I'd like the user to be able to click an "edit" button next to each of the report items so the user can click on it and get whisked away to a form where they can edit that donation's contribution information. Any ideas on how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.

Note: I've attached two pictures, one of the report in report view (although I accidentally called the file form view) and one of the report in design view.

Whenever I try to open a PDF file, I get the message that there is a problem with my Adobe Acrobat Reader. After clicking OK, I keep getting this message:

Windows cannot access the specific device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

which is under the heading of:

C:\Documents and Settings\Alfio\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\5JII7HDM?

The letters & numbers at the end (after "Content.IE5\" are not always the same.

I've installed and uninstalled the newest version of Acrobat, but still get the same result.

Someone suggested using a different program instead of Adobe's, which I will probably do, but I'm more concerned with the idea that the problem is related to my registry.

I also cannot download the Adobe Flash Player, so maybe it is just an issue with Adobe programs on my computer, but this only started happening after I had to get rid of some viruses on my computer. Everything else seems to be fine, with no more virus problems, but I don't know how to go about dealing with this permission issue.

Thank you.

Hi

We have an Access application that holds employees' table. When new employee comes, the email stating the name of a new employee and the link to this Access app. being sent to a supervisor. When supervisor starts the app, it opens the list of all new employees for a supervisor to choose from.
What my boss wants is, that access will open a new employee record by itself, depending on the name from the email. In other words, he wants to open the specific record by the link from email.

Is it possible to do this?

Thanks,

Hi! I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me. I've been a member of a bulletin board website for adoption for over four years. The site is IVFConnections.net (and .com usually works as well). The site is hosted by The Planet. The admin, unfortunately, has left the building on the site--for reasons unknown.

So after logging onto this site for the past 4 years, last week, I've been unable to access this site (I get a DNS error) from both of my home computers (laptop and PC.) I've contacted Comcast, reset my cable modem. I've contacted McAffee and all of my settings are just as they should be. I can access the site perfectly fine from work, my husbands work and other friends computers. I've asked others on the bulletin board if they are having issues and I seem to be the only one.

Today, Dell told me to reset my computers back to factory settings, as they were sure this would solve the problem. It did not and I still am unable to access the site.

I'm also using a Netgear wireless router for my laptop. I've disconnected the router and just used the PC hooked up directly to the modem and I'm still having the exact same issue.

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? Does anyone have a "work-around" for me to use to login to the site? I appreciate any help.

I'm truely frustrated!
