Preferred Solution: Getting duplicate & more duplicate copies of reply to post!! ???

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.)

Hi everyone. On various forums I visit, I use the Quick Reply feature. Well, I seem to have found a bug that is not specific to any one forum as it occurs on multiple forums that I visit. It is a bug with the Quick Reply feature. When using Quick Reply, I get an error saying that what I just posted is a duplicate of another post. Thing is, I didn't click the submit button twice or anything like that. I click one time and let it do its thing. I am not sure what is going on.

Anyway, I am using Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.14.

Hi, please be more specific on the issue. Which folder are those pictures located? Can you manually remove them? You can boot into Safe Mode and try to remove them first if you encounter such not reponding issue when trying to remove them.Sean Zhu - MSFT

I need to remove my backup copies of my files from my hard drive. I have run out of hard drive space. Is there a program that will clean up my computer so I can download more software?
 

A:Duplicate copies of old Windows back-ups

It's a possibility that something like this could give you some room: This not Windows' Backups, this is for Windows System Restore Points.
(If you have Windows Vista, let me know, yuo need further info)

•Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr

•Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.

•Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.

•Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"

•Click Yes, then click Ok.

•Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"

•Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.​

Next: http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/TFC.exe << By default, it cleans all user's temp files and such
Then see if you can manually start delting old files......you can do this far better using SHIFT+DEL method which skips putting the deleted objects into the Bin. Turn off the NUM LOCK key, or use the DEL key that is not in the numeric keypad. Right click files you want to Delete and while pressing SHIFT press Delete. Often this will not work for Folders, but if you delete the Files inside a Folder then it should work

Hey there, i am having a problem with my Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset - the microphone doesn't want to work... oddly. I have tried the sound setting but it doesn't seem to work.
I started of by going to Sound > Recording > then it says three thing:
Microphone .... with a tick beside it ... working
Microphone FP .... Not Plugged in (When it clearly is)(Headset comes with detachable Mic)
Digital In... working.

Also when i try fiddle with the setting to enable the microphone it does not let me "configure" it .... and when i try set up the microphone it doesn't want to start up unless i disable the microphone it would say "Wizard could not start"

My Microphone is not on mute and the the jacks are correctly colour coded in place.
My sound Cards is : Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic
Headset: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset - Noise Cancellation Microphone with Gold Plated 3.5mm Jack
It the one with the detachable microphone - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128208

Hello,

When I press Compose or Reply to an email, OE opens two exact copies. If I press compose, two blank emails pop up. If I press reply, two copies pop up with all the original material in them. So I write in one, press send and off it goes, then the other copy sitting there underneath it.

Any ideas why this is happening or what I can do to fix it?

Thank you
 

A:Outlook Express - Compose or Reply opens two copies

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums​
When posting, always state your OS and version numbers along with names of programs involved in your problem. Always better to post too many details than not enough.

Hope you mean 'create' rather than compose. Don't think OE has compose.

Check here and see if you have 2 duplicate accounts. If there is a doubt, click the properties button and check the information for each:

OE->Tools->Accounts.
If you do have duplicates, remove one of them.

Another possible is spyware of some type. Hijack This Log might point out something. Download from here. Not zipped, so you can make a new folder for it and save it there. Then run it.

Hijack This

Close all open windows before running Hijack This. Click 'Do a system scan and save a logfile.' Copy the entire log in notepad and paste it here. Do not fix anything yet because most items are normal or needed. Hopefully someone here will analyze the log.

Maybe someone else will have more ideas as well.

Going to 'Manage add-ons' in IE9 due to a possible problem, I noticed that there were duplicate entries in some cases - for example Live Mail & Messenger, Do Not Track Me, Quicktime and Java 10.60.2
Would it be OK to disable one instance and leave the other enabled or would this cause a problem?
Better, is it possible to remove one and leave the other behind?

This was in regard to my previous message with Napster connection speed while downloading. Forgot to mention that I have a 56K modem (I live in a town that refuses to go into the 21st century). That's all.

Someone told me to pick only T1 or DSL connections, because cable had a bad upload
speed.

A:{DUPLICATE}same

There is some limitation in uploading but what exactly are you planning to do? If your going to be hosting multiple websites using the cable connection then you may consider a T1 but if it's to be used to just browse the net and downloading things then a cable connection is perfect. Once again a T1 is better but can you afford the price in the range of $800 +++ a month versus about $40 for cable?

If you have a choice of cable or T1 then take either of those over DSL.

I've had a good look around google but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for - I'm kind of having trouble describing it. What I basically want to do is copy my entire installation of windows (all my files, settings, everything) onto my external hard drive so I can then install a fresh copy of windows on my build in HD, but I still want to be able to access the copy of windows I have put on my hard drive, as I can now. I'm kind of wanting to make two separate computers in a sense. Like when I start up my laptop I can choose if I want to boot from my fresh copy of windows or go to the copy of windows on my external HD.

It's just my current copy of windows is filling up my hard drive and has just turned into an unorganised mess and I've got stuff in there that I need but I can't be bothered to sift through it all; there's too much!

Any help is appreciated!

I don't think you can RUN Win7 from an external drive -- but others know more about this than I do.

To access your files, you could do an image backup to the external drive, using something like Macrium Reflect, and then "mount" that image as a drive. That will not allow you to RUN it, though.

Well...first things first.System manufacturer and model?How did the system come to have what you refer to as a "copy"?How large is the hard drive...better yet, please post a screenshot from Disk Management.Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

I know I'm probably touching on a shady area, but here's the deal. My father and I both have Windows XP SP2. And we both have our own license keys and our own installation disks. So there's nothing illegal going on. However, a few weeks ago I had to reinstall Windows on his computer and because we keep both of our disks in the same rolodex, I had no way of knowing who's was who's. Actually, I wasn't even sure until after the fact that it made a difference. But apparently I used my disk and NOT his for the reinstall. Now everytime I turn on my own computer a bubble pops up on the taskbar saying "System Error: a duplicate is in use". My question is this; is there any way of getting rid of that error message without having to reinstall Xp on my father's computer again?

If it were a shortcut the four tabs would be "General", "Shortcut", "Compatibility ", and "Security"The first thing I noticed, no administor account is listed.

Hello,
My graphic card is Radeon X1950 Pro. I'm using CCC ver. 8.2.

I can't clone display from monitor to my TV (an old CRT connected via S-VIDEO).

I was trying to do this in CCC but nothing happens. So I used Window's option - "Screen Resolution" and I get this error:


I was also trying to lower resolution, but still nothing happens. I add that Extending Displays working fine.

I'd be really grateful if someone could help me solve this problem.

Greets!

Not sure, but when I do a search for a file (data, picture, music) multiple copies of the file are found. I tried using the backup program in Windows/accessories/ system tools. Could that have caused it if so is there a program that will delete dups? The Vaio laptop is moving very slow. When I right click on any file, it takes forever to display the options. Deleting the many dups would take forever.

hey gcsingsThis may have been caused by the back up program that you used.In regards to the back-up software when you backed up the information did you save it to the same drive, or an external drive?Regards~powerjuce

When I do a simple search for a picture or audio file on my computer, it results in multiple copies of the same file with the same extension and location. How can I print and post a screen print to demonstrate. Could it have something to do with the Users Accounts on my computer? Do I have to go in and delete all the duplicates, YIKES! The computer is slow for it's age and specs. When I right click on a file to send or copy or move, it can take a minute or more. Sometimes I don't get anything when right clicking. Thanks in advance.

Wondering if there is such a program that I can safely use to remove duplicate files on my PC? Reason I ask is that my PC is slower then a turtle when it shouldn't be. no virus's or malware detected. Cable connection TIA

* clear out your web browser caches* clear out the temporary files* defragment the hard drive(s) overnight: I suggest JKdefrag and/or WinContig for this. * apply some of the tweaks and optimizations found on other websites:* if you have lots of memory, and don't utilize it much, experiment with turning off Virtual RAM. * make sure your hard drivers are configured for speedhttp://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q...earch&meta=
