Preferred Solution: Get Windows 10 Count Down

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.)


Configuration: Office laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) and MS Office 2007 Pro; attached to MS Exchange Server 2003 using Cached Exchange Mode. Everything was working fine until I took laptop home, connected to my home network, VPN'ed into my office, and then returned to the office. Logged on and connected to Windows Server 2003 as usual. With one email in outbox, I Send/Receive and Outlook now reports sending 3 of 3. I think I noticed while VPN'ed into the office at home that it reported sending 2 of 2 with only one email in the outbox. What's up with this??? Thanks for any guidance.

Out of curiosity, I went to check on my Win7 OS liscense....

I opened cmd and typed .......slmgr /dlv

One line caught my attention : Remaining Windows rearm count : 1

What does that mean ?

Thank you.

A:Remaining Windows rearm count : 1

You can actually install windows without giving the key number. You are allowed a certain number of days to give the number or you will lose use of Windows. In addition you can do it so many times (rearm). It probably does not apply to you any longer but you can do it once more.

Does anybody know a way to get Media Player to display a count of the number of songs in the library?  That was one of the few features of iTunes that I liked.  I'm running WMP 12.0 under Win 7.  Thanks.


A:Windows Media Player 12 - Count Songs

First, make sure that the list of songs is focused by selecting a single song. Then press Ctrl+A to select all songs in the list. WMP should then briefly show the total song count and duration in the lower right corner.Tim De Baets

So I have an ASUS X5DIJ Laptop, I have MS Office Pro Plus 2010 on there and I might be downgrading from Windows 7 64bit to 32bit. I have already activated MS Office at once. However, if I downgrade and reactivate, would it count as a second activation or would it keep the activation count as 1 activation?

Reply soon,

A:Would downgrading from 64 bit windows 7 to 32 bit count as a separate activation of M

If the installation is different, it would be a second activation. Generally you can get away with 3 activation attempts on Office before it fails and you have to call though.

Any reason why you'd switch from Win7 64 to 32bit?

I've previously posted for help under "Performance & Maintenance". I thought it would be more appropriate to ask for help here.

I believe I've a corrupt file system/registry. The windows explorer hangs a lot. I've a hard time accessing files on the hard drive. Ran Malwarebytes, NOD32 online scanner. It's all clean. SFC doesn't run.

Hi :)

So I originally had Windows Media Player 10 installed, and then I upgraded to Media Player 11 for a few months. After a while, I decided I didn't like it, so I rolled back to Media Player 10, but all my play count data has been reverted to back before I installed Media Player 11.

I would like to know if there was a way I could restore that play count data if at all possible. It's not a big problem, I know, but it's a problem nonetheless and I would like it fixed.

Thanks in advance :)

I should know this, but I just can't remember how to do it.

I'm doing a database for a company that offers classes to students. The database is in Access.

They have various divisions that take part in different events throughout the year. One of the things that they do, is provide t-shirts for the kids for the different events.

I've got a report which breaks down like this:

Class Name
Student Name T-Shirt Size
The t-shirt sizes are currently a drop-down menu from a table that the database manager can make changes to if they need to (i.e. add or delete a size).

I'm trying to figure out how to code a count for each t-shirt size at the division level and then at the company wide level. This will allow them to say, "We need 15 small shirts for X division, 10 medium shirts, etc"

Any ideas? I want to run the counts off of the table which shows the table sizes, so that if they change sizes, I won't have to go in and make changes.


p.s. I do already have the Division Footer set-up, so that's already done.

A:Doing A Count In A Footer

A drop-down list would be within a form not a report. I would however recommend that you make a report using the wizard. Within the wizard you can do grouping and group by the two different criteria. While grouping you can do functions on fields like summarizing the data for the different sizes. If you need further assistance feel free to let me know and I will help you out.

My name is Laura and my 2 year old Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 has slowed to a crawl. Two of my four children currently rely on it to do their homework assignments. The other day I got a weird phone call from a man in India who identified himself as a Microsoft tech and told me that my laptop had so many Trojans that it was actually causing problems on their server. He said he wanted to help me get rid of them. He asked me to go into a CMD window and he was instructing me until I saw a line that stated their were more than 7,000 Trojans! I eventually figured out what I suspected all along. He did not actually represent MS but a separate company and for $177 he would clean them off and clean all the PCs in our home. Before this though, I gave him remote access to my laptop and when I realized he wasn't with MS I panicked and unplugged my laptop and disconnected the battery to shut it down as quickly as possible. I wish I knew more and could tell you more but I am not at all tech savvy. Thank you beforehand for your help!

A:Trojans: too many to count!

Hello Laura,

That was a very smart move, good for you for trusting your gut and doing an immediate disconnect.

Since this Windows 7, my first recommendation is to utilize System Restore. These are the restore points I see available to you:


==== System Restore Points ===================
RP162: 12/5/2012 7:12:44 PM - Scheduled Checkpoint
RP163: 12/12/2012 9:41:43 AM - Windows Update
RP164: 12/20/2012 2:05:43 AM - Scheduled Checkpoint
RP165: 1/1/2013 3:00:24 AM - Windows Update
RP166: 1/9/2013 10:35:07 PM - Scheduled Checkpoint
RP167: 1/10/2013 9:20:24 AM - Windows Update
RP168: 1/24/2013 1:00:22 AM - Scheduled Checkpoint
RP169: 2/3/2013 9:40:47 AM - Scheduled Checkpoint
RP170: 2/11/2013 918 PM - Scheduled Checkpoint

To minimize interference, it's best you perform the System Restore without Windows loaded. Restart your computer and tap F8 to bring up the Advanced Menu, then click Repair your computer

Follow the prompt to enter language, keyboard input method, and then the prompt to enter a password. If the machine does not have a password, simply click Enter.

In the next menu, use the arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight System Restore and press Enter.

Follow the prompts to restore to an earlier time. Select the date closest to just before they had remote access. Follow all prompts.

How did that work out for you?

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

I recently had to re-install Windows XP Professional on my PC, and ever since then, the Freecell statistics do not keep an accurate count of my wins. At first I thought it was a random event, but it just happened a second time. I lost a game (1 loss), then I won a game (2 losses). 2 losses?!? I don't think so. I looked around on the Microsoft support website, but found nothing on this. I know that in the grand scheme of things this isn't an important kind of problem, but it seems to me that if you can't trust your computer to do a simple count, then we're really in trouble. Please advise.

What is a fair way of counting Web traffic? Especially in relation say, to newspaper circulation?

I've heard one blogger say that his blog is equivalent to the 5th largest newspaper in the U.S.

But, can you count every "hit"?

Tom Tomorrow, of "This Modern World" blog wrote:

"If Blog X, with comments, has 50,000 readers a day, does it really have 50,000 unique readers a day, or 25,000 readers checking in twice a day? Or 5,000 readers checking in ten times a day to see what’s being said in the comments section? (Or one really obsessive reader checking in 50,000 times a day?) A blogger with much higher traffic than mine once admitted to me, somewhat furtively, that any visitor who waits at least an hour between visits counts as a new unique visitor."

Also, what Tom Tomorrow didn't say is that you may have false hits...
That is, someone "googles" the words "world of tomorrow" trying to get a site that predicts the future and mistakenly gets Tom Tomorrow's political site -- then the guy immediately leaves the site...but he's been counted!

It's equivalent to someone who passes by on the street and glances for a second at a copy of the Washington Post in the newsstand before walking on. Should the glancer be counted as a reader? But that's how the bloggers count their readership.

So, my question is: what is a fair way to count blog traffic (to compare it to newspaper circulation)? IS there an... Read more

A fairly recent scan of my hard drive from Norton Internet Security showed that there were well over 500,000 files on my C:\ drive. I wasn't completely sure, but that seemed like a very high number to me. This was especially a concern to me since I really don't have a huge amount of programs installed. Besides system software, it has Microsoft Office 2003, CCleaner, Foxit Reader, iTunes, Winamp Lite, Mozilla Thunderbird, Nero, Power DVD, Stomp RecordNow!, Stomp Backup MyPC, Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, Snake, Bugatron, Warning Forever, Super DX-Ball, and Pocket Tanks. I run CCleaner regularly so I don't think it should be due to registry problems. Scans from Norton have not resulted in any threats. I'm not sure if its due to the shear amount of files, but it seems as if my system has slowed somewhat as well. Is this number of files normal, or is there a problem? Thanks!

Hello, I work as an MT and am paid by line counts. I have always believed that MS Word worked on a 65 space line. Where can I find the computation that MS Word uses to compare to my work platform (DocQscribe). If this computation is not open for the public, can someone please explain how Microsoft computes their line count?

Hi guys, I have a table that looks like the following:


[b]Number Name Status[/b]

I had a week of not using my own computer, and checking my emails from webmail

today when I downloaded using outlook express, there were 3 files from one individual that show as being empty (they weren't) -- if I go to FILE, PROPERTIES, DETAILS, ORIGINAL MESSAGE I can see everything.

that's the first weird thing,

then , when trying to send emails I am getting this message:

Error during excution.
Run debug?
line 19
error: name redefined: 'VARIABLE_COUNT'
(I've translated from Italian, the only word I'm not 100% sure abour is redefined)

If I select yes,
I go to Debug JIT and I'm asked to select a debugger, there is only 1 available (Microsoft Script editor, I set it as the predefined, and say yes to carryout debugging....
I get a "run Remote Procedure Call"
process: [1844] C:\Programmi\McAfee.com\Shared\mghtml.exe

I get this page, and it says there is an error at line 19, interrupt or continue. If I continue, it just asks me again, if I interrupt, it stops.

this is the text, I've put line 19 in bold. I have no idea what is going on or what to do.
any help would be appreciated.. -- I'm about to start running a scan and see what comes up. thanks

All right, my computer's been in awful shape lately. Dying on me, difficulty starting up, loss of settings, and a bunch more.

I just installed Venta Fax on Windows XP. I have a 20 page Acrobat pdf, but the fax program reduces it to 15 pages, and some of the pages are legal size or longer. This is a big problem because the recipient rejects faxes that are the wrong page count or that come in unexpected sizes.

I have tried all the printer options on the Acrobat side and all the Modem and Printer properties options on the Fax side. Somewhere between Acrobat and Venta Fax, the pages are always reduced to 15. I have tried splitting up and recompiling the pdf. I have also tried to convert the pdf to tifs, but Venta Fax rejects the tifs for some unknown reason.

The Modem is currently set to TAPI. I also tried Com 3.

This is driving me nuts because this is a time-sensitive document: it's now several days late. :-(

I've looked for a forum devoted to fax problems, but keywords like "fax troubleshooting", "Venta Fax", etc. mainly bring up crack sites.

Hi,I am trying to get a total count of rows for each case when statement. However my results spit out the count for each unique field value which gives me countless results. Please let me know what I need to change in my logic. Thanks.

select count(*), FIELD1,
when FIELD1 > 0.00 and FIELD1 <= 0.05 then '00-05'
when FIELD1 > 0.05 and FIELD1 <= 0.10 then '05-10'
else 'ERROR'
from TABLE1
where FIELD1 <> 0.00
group by FIELD1
