What happen to my rapidshare premium account... almost 5 days, download is very slow...15kbps and finally gone... Normally, i got 212kbps.
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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Tell us more. What is a Rapidshare Premium Account?http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/rapidshare-premium-account.138275/
I was curious if anyone who has Spotify Premium and uses it regularly on their smartphone could tell me approximately how much their monthly data usage is. I was planning on getting 4GB and was curious if this would be enough with using Spotify.
I have an: DIXONH55ITX Socket 1156 Advent Firefly FP 3104 System Motherboard
I'm looking to upgrade for 2 main reasons.
1.) Upgrade my Ram, (as the limit of ram for this motherboard is 4gb.)
2.) More than 1 PCI-E slot. (There's only one on this motherboard.)
But my main question is:
What do I need to take into account when upgrading my Motherboard?
(Compatibility issues etc.)
Also any motherboard recommendations (under £200). As I'm planning on upgrading my computer to a gaming rig.
Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
Not quite understanding you. Are you wanting to keep all other parts and just upgrade mobo, ram and gpu?:
It sounds to me like you are wanting to build an entire new system. If so, give us a budget and what should be included (monitor, windows etc.).
I moved everything into a server case. The case has a hot plug box for 4 hard drives and since there is no other place I can put them I moved my hard drives in there. I also moved one of my spare drives there so I can use it to store backups. My intention was to plug the drive in, make a backup and remove it. Without having to restart the machine. However once I moved it in there I realized that windows does not see it as removable drive but as normal drive. and there is no "Safely remove your hardware" icon in the tray. Now I am wondering whether it would be safe for me just to remove the drive straight out or do I have to restart it every time?
Was that hard drive that you intend to use just simply for your "back up's", is that hard drive an I.D.E. or SATA or USB?
Because if it's an older styled I.D.E., you will never get that "safely remove hardware" message. Even if the drive is a more modern SATA one, just like with an I.D.E. you will not get that "safe to remove hardware" message as well. But if your drive is a USB styled one, your Operating System should have picked up on what it was, how it was being connected and more importantly, what kind off hook up the device is using. Almost every Operating System I've ever put my hands on, know when something is a USB device, and will almost always display that "safe to remove hardware" message, both by way of ((right clicking)) the device icon itself by way of Windows Explorer, or going for the little icon in the lower right hand corner on your Windows taskbar.
So if it's not a USB device, I'm afraid to properly remove and install the drive, your going to have to power down the computer, each and every time.....sorry!
Im not familiar with PC TV tuners and am wondering the following about Verizon FIOS and an HTPC.
1) Is there such a device that makes it possible to view and DVR all subscribed premium FIOS channels? I am aware I would need a cablecard.
2)Is there a better program than XBMC and WMC to use for a HTPC?
3) what is the typical "standard" cpu used in HTPC builds?
I just received a Dell Inspiron 1420 and it did not have an OS on it. I installed Windows Vista Home Premium which was the original OS on the laptop. Everythng seems to be working fine however the touchpad freezes. The buttons work fine.
I've tried different drivers and nothing. Please help me.
did you run Windows Update?
First of all, I don´t know if this is the right spot to ask about hosting, but since Techspot has helped me with a lot of computer related problems, I thought I´d give it a try...
Anyways, I´m about to buy a hosting plan from Hostgator, but I want to use one account to host at least 3 different sites (top domains, like firstpage.com, secondpage.com and thirdpage.com). I know the reselling account would be the most effective, but I don´t need to have a different cPanel for each user.
Can this be done with a Baby plan? I´m going to buy domain names from another company, but I guess that doesn´t matter. I´m new to all this hosting stuff, so any help will be appreciated.
that's all up to the hosting site policies - - don't hold your breath.
the Apache2 web server does this with <VirtualHost: ipaddress:80>
Last night when I logged in to Rapidahare, I realised all or most of my files were gone, and there are some important files I need to retrive it, and I had already contacted Rapidshare about this, their reply was :
However, maybe you find the files in the Trash Folder in your account. If they
are deleted, there is no way to recover deleted files.
I'm sorry for the inconvenienc
can anyone tell me how to retrive the files and to find out the date the files were deleted? or also the ip address
Maybe one of your family or friends that you share data with deleted your files...

Is the laptop getting hot under normal use?
Go to Control panel, Power and then change the settings for standby to off and apply.
Try it again and see what happens and report back please.
It sounds like it might be an issue when trying to head into standby if its not overheating related.

Hi I ve got a very old Asus mobo P AD -E Premium which has the CMI audio built-in When I upgraded to Windows Ultimate last Oct I had trouble with the CMI driver right off It didn t work at all but eventually I found that I could use the old Win XP driver but had to run the setup in Win XP compat and use Admin privs So now it plays audio but not as well as it did in Win XP I cannot use the volume controls in the mixer but when I change vol in iTunes it does work I am also trying to use this system to get input from a mic for 9880 on Asus CMI Premium mobo P5AD2-E speech recognition It does work but not all that well Audio level is quite low When I search for a better driver none is ever found Asus no longer supports the LGA boards I don t have the money to upgrade my hardware unless I can get a new audio system for a good price Maybe a USB system CMI 9880 on Asus P5AD2-E Premium mobo Any recommendations Thanks FW nbsp
"I don't have the money to upgrade my hardware, unless I can get a new audio system for a good price. Maybe a USB system?"... USB sound systems are cheap and they should work fine under Window 7

Other than cleaning
You may need to physically remove the keyboard (usually via removing screws underneath laptop)
And disconnect it then reconnect it
You could also test with a USB keyboard, to confirm it's the laptop keyboard only
Hello and thank you for allowing me to post in your forum First thank goodness I have two computers and am able to correspond Vista Cannot Boot Windows Premium via the healthy one I have no idea what my husband did to our other Cannot Boot Windows Vista Premium computer while I was sleeping last night but when I tried to boot it this morning the screen filled with exclamation points top to bottom with a black bacground Somehow I got it to the screen to start in safe mode and I did a system restore When I rebooted it I got the same exclamation points and now the next screen has text in another language French I think along with exclamation points and the same black background If I hit enter nothing happens if I hig esc the screen goes black Also I do not have the installation disc but I did create recovery discs sometime ago when I realized I didn thave the installation discs I have a feeling that my husband went to a questionable web site and this is the result of that action Can you please help Thank you nbsp
If you have multiple restore points, try using an older one as the information you've got doesn't give much idea what may be wrong.
I have owned the system with the P5AD2-E Premium for nearly 5 years, and have used a RAID 0 configuration on the Silicon Image 3114R controller.
I also have a stand-alone SATA drive on the Intel ICH6R controller.
I am installing a new hard drive, with 32MB cache (compared to the 8MB the current drives have) as the main drive. I will partition this drive for Win XP Pro and Win 7 Ultimate, plus another partition for data and additional programs if needed.
I am not going to use RAID for the new setup, and am wondering whether I should put this drive on the Silicon Image 3114R or the Intel ICH6R controller for the best performance.
I will retain at least one other drive in the system for backup purposes. Performance of this drive is not particularly important.
Install Windows 7 first, then Windows XP Pro... I would put it on the Intel ICH6R... but both are so old that it really doesn't matter much... you probably have as much experience with it as anybody on this forum.

Yes you should be able to transfer files easily. Are the Vista PC's both updated to Service Pack 2?

I would suggest a few things:
1. Turn off DHCP on the modem.
2. Assign the Linksys NIC a static IP that is on the same subnet as the LAN of the modem.
3. Set the DNS of both NIC's on your server to the DNS provided by your ISP (this is usually just easier than doing DNS yourself).
You will still be able to use VPN, RDP, and OWA as long as you forward those ports to your servers (linksys NIC) IP address. If you need to know what those ports are, let me know.
Hi, I have the P5K Premium Motherboard but I have never had RAM that has large Heat sinks on top of them and I know that some sticks of RAM are to big to have 4 sticks in one computer, so can you tell me if 4 stick of Reaper ram will fit into the P5K Premium

Hey Guys, totally new to this forum. Just wanted to ask a question. I'm currently have a ASUS A8N-SLi Premium and looking into buying 2x 9800GT 1Gb, so I can SLi.
Also attached to my config currently:
Dual Core 3800+
Is it possible to run the SLi without having to upgrade anything. I really do not want to upgrade the MoBo. If need be, il upgrade the RAM because the MoBo holds a max of 4Gb, so il purchase another stick of RAM.
Also the MoBo is a Socket939. If I can pick up a cheap CPU that fits that socket that is better than what Im running, il buy it.
Any suggestions/ideas/thoughts would be greatly appreciated
If there is any more information you want/need

Easiest way is to go back to the Windows Firewall, uninstalling any other firewalls. Avira will protect you well elsewhere. Then slowly reinstall stuff.

Yesterday I bought the above-named headset to use when playing Team Fortress It connects to my mobo with two separate quot plugs -- one for the headphones and one for the mic I m positive I ve got them in the right jacks Right off Logitech work. Headset, Premium Stereo doesn't mic the bat I noticed that I had Logitech Premium Stereo Headset, mic doesn't work. to turn the volume down substantially from where I had it with my regular Sony headphones -- I was getting tons of high-pitched interference that disappeared when I turned down the volume even though playback still seems to be good and loud The mic however is crap at Logitech Premium Stereo Headset, mic doesn't work. this point When I went to test it in the audio section of the control panel I found that it barely registers on the level meter even when I m speaking at louder than normal volume In properties I brought the mic volume all the way up and made sure that the mute box is not checked The headset comes with its own mic mute switch on the cord and it s open When I went to the voice recorder and did a test what I recorded was a faint high pitched mix of static and electronic squealing -- sort of like the sound a fax machine makes and yes -- it s not unlike the initial interference I was getting on the headphones There was nothing in there that sounded like my voice or words When I went to test my mic in-game before actually playing I found that speaking at the same louder-than-normal volume pushed the level up into the red but I couldn t hear myself over the headphones -- not sure if I was supposed be able to I didn t want to bother starting a game until I can be sure that I m not just going to broadcast hums and squeals I ve been on a bunch of different websites for the past hours and so far nothing I ve found has solved my problem In addition to any suggestions or questions you might have I m wondering Would switching to a USB headset fix this Would installing a rd party soundcard fix this Does this sound like an issue with interference due to cheap cords and connectors on the headset or elsewhere Thanks I m open to taking the headset back to the store this afternoon but I m still holding out hope that they work and there s another way to fix the problem Edit Whoops I should add that I m using XP sp with an ASUS P motherboard and onboard sound Soundmax HD Intel Core processor x nbsp

When you say "won't boot" do you mean that the machine turns on and you get a POST but it won't boot into Windows? Or is it just dead from the start? (No noise, no psu, nothing. If everything is turning and you don't have your program come up it may be the different BIOS.
I just bought a Samsung 226 BW LCD monitor. With it was a leaflet saying if I am using Vista I need to go to a specific web site and download the above software. I tried the address they provided but all I get is a blank page. Does anyone know anywhere else I can download it?
here you go http://www.samsung.com/us/support/d...l_nm=226BW&language=&dType=D&mType=DR&vType=R
My son's computer has the problem of not booting past the ASUS screen, and when he tries to go into BIOS it freezes completely. There are no test beeps or anything...can you help me with this, please?
Either here or at email@example.com...thanks....
I have suggested a new BIOS chip, but am not sure....
Have flashed his bios after getting it to boot properly..seems to be working great now...thanks anyway...
there was a recent bios update for my mobo. I have the faintest idea of how to install a bios revision, can anyone help me pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Hmm... I would assume that the instructions would be in the motherboard manual, or at least on the website you download it from.
Recently purchased this board. First time builder. I had no problems on start up. I love this board because it has 2 16 lane pci slots and another 8 lane pci slot for maybe a phsx card for you hard core 1st person shooter gamers. No bio revisions needed to support any of the new core2duo or quad processors. This board is amazingly cool to have so many features. I have the wifi version which runs great. If you're some sort of admin you can use the dual gigabit lan for a barrel effect for double the bandwidth. This board IS NOT for the overclock happy. You will get 25% overclock on this board. I think ASus did this purposely because the board isnt cheap. The commando and the other high end asus boards have many of the same features as this one. Also overclockable at 25%
Possibly the worst review ever.
is a link to my motherboard specifications. Will my board take core 2 duo processors?
Thanx fo looking
It doesn't look like it.
Here is the found connect account Windows domain cannot (2003)...computer to not back story I am at a school with a NT domain server We bought a new SP server We have two IP ranges Our old configuration had static IP address with DNS servers located at the Windows cannot connect to domain (2003)...computer account not found district that was referenced in the TCP IP properties I set up the new server with roles It has an Active Directory It is a DHCP server I have machines The DHCP has a superscope with scopes within the superscope Each scope has a range of IP address and the exceptions for the server printers et cetera It also is a DNS server that quot listens to all IP addresses quot instead of listen to the quot following IP addresses quot However on the listen to the following IP addresses I put in it s own IP address The DNS server also has forwarders to the district DNS servers The last role is as a File Share I have connected about computers just fine Everything is working good however I am now getting sporadic computers that can t log on I get this message Windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable or because your computer account was not found Please try again later Click to expand The computers are still on the server If I re-add the client machine to the domain everything is fine--for now This has been happening to xp machines It has happened times now and I am worried about a continual problem or a major problem around the corner Are there any ideas on what is causing this I have read up a little bit about SID problems but I am not that literate yet I am wondering if I set something up wrong failed to set something up or if there is an entirely different reason Could it be because the computers are still on the NT directory I have not taken off the NT active directory yet or added the NT server to the server I also have an independent server for the library and a server for a special ed room and program No one at the district can help I am out of ideas I am getting really worried that I did something wrong I can t fix I am not an expert I am in the very beginning stages of my MCSA training nbsp
I would look at the network before you look at the OS, when it happens see if you can ping the server by name and IP, also look in the event viewer of the machine and see if there is anything showing up in there.
Hey I am planning on building a gaming PC for myself After some research I am having trouble deciding between these mobo - ASUS P N -SLI PREMIUM WiFi-AP nVIDIA nFORCE SLI CHIPSET with eVGA GeForce GX Video Card ASUS P W DH Deluxe with Sapphire Radeon X XTX MB I plan to use crossfire SLI will buy the nd card after a couple of months and SATA disks in raid config as I will be using the same PC for wrk and Vs. PREMIUM/WiFi-AP P5W DH ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe require data back-up In either case I would have the following components - - Intel Core Duo E - GHz MB Shared L - Seagate ASUS P5N32-SLI PREMIUM/WiFi-AP Vs. P5W DH Deluxe Gbps GB RPM MB Barracuda - NEC ND- A X DVD -RW - OCZ Titanium Alpha VX GB x GB DDR - - - - Also need to decide on the case amp power supply cooling system no water for me I would appreciate if the folks could help me make a decision on the mobo Also if there is an alternate mobo or any other component that you would suggest Thanks nbsp
Since you want the super high-end I'd wait a month for Geforce 8800 and the new Nforce Intel edition mobos.
The P5W DH has easy back-up for driverless raid.
I like this COOLER MASTER Praetorian Aluminum ATX Tower Case, and a 700w FSP power supply. It is the same one as the 700w OCZ GameXstream and some others made by FSP. It is powerful enough for Quad SLi, it should run G80 well too.
For cooling stock will be fine. If you want more quiet a Freezer7 pro, and if you want to overclock a Scythe SCINF-1000. If you do want to overclock deficiently go with a P5W DH.
Can you guys give some online retailers (USA Based) that are selling this board?
Asus P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP
Is it even out yet?
And also, ASUS's description has this:
"- Dual-channel DDR2 800(OC) /667/533" - Ram
What does the (OC) mean? I know it stands for Overclock, but will my non-OC G.Skill DDR2 6400 run at 800?
G.Skill DDR2 6400 2GB
I'd like to get this or a GIGABYTE GA-965P-DQ6, but the ASUS is quad sli ready.
i need to get into the administrator account on this laptop.
i barely know any information about this computer.
i am on a limited account.
it is a dell inspiron 1100.
& i am using windows xp pro.
obviously, i need to get the password for the administrator account.
i would really apprececiate some help on this matter.
please & thanks.
Ask the administrator.
I posted a thread in OS a while back about my CPU usage being stuck around the 50% mark.
I took it to a comp technician(friend so free diagnosis) and he said it was definitely the mobo, but alas he could not fix it.
Apparently it's having some problems with the IRQ's and is hogging up a lot of CPU power with interrupt requests.
Now, either I need to know how to fix this, or I could get a new mobo. If the latter, any sugguestions?
Specs are as follows;
ASPIRE 500-W PSU.
Sapphire ATI Radeon X850XT 256mb PCI-E
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
Seagate 300gb 16mb cache SATA HDD
AMD Athlon 3200+ 2.0GHz EDIT : it's socket 939 to clarify.
About a $250 CDN budget.
i reccomend a replacement nforce4 sli board from MSI, gigabyte, or asus. all three of these brands make quality products, with features equal to or similar to your current board. i believa that you can get an exact replacement for under the stated budget limit.
Would appreciate your opinions!
It depends on your budget and your CPU. If you have a Sempron CPU, get the deluxe model, if not, get the Premium one. It has 2 PCIeX16 slots, in case you want SLI.
Here they are so you can compare them:
Good luck on your choice!
hey i was just wondering if anyone that had this motherboard knew where to find the cpu/memory ratio in the bios so i can oc my opteron 144 past 2.5Ghz which by the way is on the stock cooler running very cool from the high 70s to low low 90s
Oh and btw the motherboard is the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium not deluxe....please help
Well this is the mobo as of right now I am thinking of getting It is the Asus A N Sli Deluxe or Premium I am now asking if it is worth the extra - to get the Premium over the Deluxe since all that is different is that the Premium has a better cooling system I have read in many places that this is a good mobo and that it might not be the best but does quite well also many have said the lay out is one of the best for the nForce ones Any ways I am only going Deluxe Premium? nForce4 Motherboard Or Asus A8N-SLI with a single GPU so the Sli I don t think matters I thought think it is only for GPU s being used at once not one And I am thinking of getting Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce4 Motherboard Or Premium? a NF GPU any ways which supports Sli but not two I want your opinions on if this is a good mobo and if I should get it or another one If another please make your suggestions My price range is about this mobo it being the max I am willing to pay ish Thank you so much all for your help you have done so much already for me Thank you so much all for your help you have done so much already for me Craig nbsp
I would choose the premium over the deluxe.
I have setup my computer (WinXP Home) to have two user accounts. I've noticed that often (maybe always) whichever account is initially logged into when the computer is first booted up seems to be the only account from which the CD or DVD drives can be accessed. What can I do to correct this?
I have just purchased this mother board (ASUS A8N-SLI Premium) and placed 2 GB of ddr 400. It is running window XP pro and has 5 drives all together HD, 1 DVD-Rom, 1 CD-rom) and every time I plug my 80GB USB hard drive into the computer (both device and computer end have USB 2.0) it finds the drive but crashes every time I transfer stuff to the drive or from. I have used this drive on more than one computer and works fine, but when I put it in this computer it just messes up. I have reinstalled the OS twice and still the same problem.

sound like you plugged USB lines in wrong order... make sure you plugged into this?
USB3 or USB4 ::::.
The first four pin at bottom is for the first USB port and the top one is for second USB port. please pull the USB and plug exactly i stated... Let start with the first pin at bottom left of _ ::::.
Bottom line is . VCC 1 (red), DATA-1 (White), DATA+1 (Green) and GND 1 (black). Do same for the second line. you can find it on the manual.

How many hard drives have you installed and are they IDE or SATA drives?
Are you using a RAID configuration?
If so, I would disable the RAID settings in the BIOS and use a single hard drive to install Windows on.

Asus boards do come with a windows based bios flasher, but on my board it has never worked for me. It ALWAYS says there are no updates available when I know there are. Could be a firewall issue but I just give up and do it manually.
Here is a great, comprehensive article on bios flashing:
By the way, we have almost the exact same system. You're gonna love it once you get it up and running!
What sould I get? The ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard,
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard,
I would like to know which one would give me better peformance, overclocking, gaming! Don't worry about the video I'll have that by Dec.(X1600)
You will not notice any performance difference, by default, between the two using a 64 or FX processor... the chipset is the same and the supported memory is the same among them, along with integrated components.
The only notable difference is that the premium has a heatpipe to cool the chipset and chipset VRM on the board, and it allows you to alter voltage to the chipset. This lets it run without needing a fan (the chipset).
The latter would be better for overclocking, marginally.
I was looking to buy a 3700+ (939 socket) and a ASUS A8N SLI premium board to go with it. Newegg just put this board on sale, but upon reading the latest reviews, a few people say this is the only 939 processor that isn't compatible with this board, and that the deluxe will work. Other people say that they are running this board with this processor. This is totally confusing me, and I don't see anything specific on the AMD website.
Can someone shed some light on this for me?
It is true.
According to the ASUS website, the 3700+ IS compatible with the deluxe version of that board (it is on the supported CPU list), but if you go to the Premium version, that particular CPU is skipped on the list.
In fact, that is the ONLY reason I didn't get a Premium board, as if I have any problems, I was afraid I wouldn't get any support as it is not officially supported.
I have the A8N-SLI deluxe with the Athlon64 3700+.
But as you said, if you search around you can see that many people do have that combination and it is working fine....
Hi everyone. I am new to this board and I need your expertise. I am building a new computer using Asus P5AD2-E Premium motherboard, Intel 775LGA 3.2 Ghz, Geforce 6600GT, 500W power supply and so on.

Hello--I have been having trouble with running my protools 002 on my windows xp. A friend of mine metioned setting up 2 separate user accounts one for Protools---the other for everything else. The plan is to strip down---"tune" (uninstall any unnessesary programs from the protools account, in hopes to help it run smoother--The problem is...When I uninstall programs in the control panel,
it uninstalls it from both user accounts. Is there a way to run each user account separately? Please help!!
Thank you for your time!!
what is the difference between the ASUS P5GD2 Premium and the ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe?
$54. compare them yourself here.
Right now I have a gig of pc2100 ddr ram. I have 2 512 chips which are basically OEM models (manufactured by Infineon and and Elixir) I'm toying with the idea of upgrading to pc2700 or pc3200 and going with a premium quality brand like Corsair or Kingston. For those in the know is there really a considerable difference in terms of performance and is it really worth the price and upgrade as compared to an OEM model? I'm more interested in stabilty and reliability and have no plans on overclocking and want to get the best value.
Here are my system stats BTW:
1 gig PC2100 OEM
Asus A7N8X Deluxe 1001g bios
Soundstorm Integrated audio
Quadro 4 750xgl (soon to be replaced by a Radeon 9800 for gaming purposes)
40 gig HD
480 watt Antec PSU
What's 'Generic' Ram like for performance?
I have a P computer with a GeForce MX MX video card Audio Driver account. No only with Sound one Creative PCI ES I reinstalled my real version of XP Pro due to some not sound related hangups and space problems on that the D drive which was a cleanly formatted install The No Sound with only one account. C drive reinstallation not clean has worked fine with all the previous programs reinstalled however I get no sound neither quot Windows quot generated nor media played in the main account but have no problems in any of the other accounts on this same system Device manager reveals no conflicts anywhere let alone in Sound and video controller settings The programs reinstalled are I believe all the same that were there before and caused no such problems Is there some way of isolating this problem or migrating the other account settings to the main quot me quot account who is the administrator loosely applied term in my case Many thanks im adsvance as MS KB has nothing I can find or understand to help me Regards Jimo nbsp
If only one account cannot hear the sound, log on as another user with administrative rights, and then delete the profile of the effected account.
Right click "My Computer" and select properties for the user accounts tab.

Some DVD players need to be set to use DD. With WinDVD there was an option you could enable. Which DVD player do you use?
Samsung has a knack for offering buyers of its latest flagship devices a bundle of quality apps to go along with their purchase and soon-to-be owners of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are no exception.

I have a US iTunes account that has been disabled. Is there anyway I can reactivate it with having to contact Apple?
I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 camera which came with Picture Package imaging software.
Before loading onto my new PC I am looking for other software. As ever I want it for free - freeware or perhaps opensource.
I have an HP PSC 1610 all in one printer scanner which gave me access to a suite of image editing and I guess that I could go back to using the HP photo editing - unless there is something better for free.
I'm a little confused by this. Isn't the whole point of using a sandboxed browser is that nothing leaves it. SAS picked this up:
accounts.key.com [ C:\AVAST! SANDBOX\S-1-5-21-3583729876-1247344376-3946384776-1000\SFZONE\C\USERS\NIGHTMARE\APPDATA\ROAMING\MACROMEDIA\FLASH PLAYER\#SHAREDOBJECTS\JG77RLU5 ]
I assumed that with a sandbox, stuff like this (especially a key bank flash cookie) would simply not exist.
Also, there is no C:\Avast!. I installed Avast to a custom folder and Avast doesn't use the word "Sandbox" to describe it's program in any files, always "SafeZone".
Don't get me wrong, pc's fine. I'm just wondering if this is typical or if Avast just makes a crappy sandbox.
Try using Google Chrome or FireFox with Disconnect + Adblock. That should eliminate the majority, if not all tracking stuff.

I use the paid version of Avira Premium 10 and was thinking about purchasing SuperAntiSpyware Professional. I've read on the Avira support site that there will be conflicts with the real time protection in SuperAntiSpyware Pro and Avira. The forum responders are always telling people to uninstall SuperAntiSpyware. But, the SuperAntiSpyware support forums state otherwise. They say there won't be any problems. I don't know which to believe. I know all computers don't work the same but it would be nice to hear from someone that isn't on either company's website. I can't install the trial version because I have tried to but it says my "evaluation period has expired". I don't remember trying it ever before today. I do have the free version and am using it. Is there anyone out there that has used these two together? If so, how has it worked for you?

When I bought my new laptop with Windows 8 preferred me to create a Microsoft Account and use it to sign each to access Windows. After doing some reading I understand it syncs things like personal settings such as wall paper, font etc. What else does it sync? For example it seems to automatically connect other Microsoft products to the Microsoft Account used to log in to Windows, for example it automatically signed in Onenote which now stores notes in the cloud.
Does signing through a Microsoft Account backup programs and data of other programs? For example if I installed Adobe Photoshop and created a image using it and had my laptop stolen, would it have automatically be saved to the cloud?

block email-id contains @domainand regardless of the email user, that domain gets blocked
fyi: Thunderbird is my favorite email software

Have you tested your system memory?
So my friend created an MSN / Windows Live account so she could talk to some friends.
Apparently every time she tries to add a contact, and then send them a message, it doesn't work.
I had her test this by adding my username, and it didn't pop up with the normal "accept and add?" dialogue box.
I messed with this a bit further and got no where.
I decided to test this in a controlled environment. I created a new Windows Live account.
I then signed on to the account with meebo (a browser-based IM client) and tried to send myself a message.
It didn't work.
I'm lost at this point. I don't know what the problem could be at all. Any insight would be appreciated.
Having completed a system recovery On my HP Pavillion Running Vista Home Premium, I was able to save the DBX files from my old Windows mail.
I'm now trying to import them back, but cant find ANY information how, or where they belong.
Everything seems to refer to importing Outlook Express 6 files into Windows Mail, or windows Mail 7
This is simply The old Vista Windows mail files, replacing the same version, Vista reformatted ones.
I'm trying to change the colour of my toolbar and the headers of other windows that I open. But when I type "change window glass colour" into the start menu I don't get the option to do that. I know that there must be an option to do this in Windows 7 because my laptop has the same OS and I have changed it several times on that. I have read in another thread that it might be to do with Windows Aero. But the troubleshooter is bringing up nothing and changing the Theme from "Basic" to "Aero" and back has no effect on being able to change the window glass colour.
I can send screenshots to any replies if that will help. Any replies greatly appreciated as this is bugging me.
You need aero active to do what you want. Whether or not win7 aero works or not also has a lot to do with your video driver. You should check with the video card (or motherboard if applicable) manufacturer's website for the latest driver version that is applicable. Also try googling to see if there is a way to determine whether aero is active or not.
Here is one example
There is a corresponding service UxSms (Desktop Window Manager Session Manager- Provides Desktop Window Manager startup and maintenance services).
This starts a process dwm.exe. With this started, AERO is enabled (if stopped AERO is disabled). So basically if the process dwm.exe runs, AERO is enabled (read the comments, this means that AERO themes might, but not necessarily have be used. However, without DWM no AERO).Click to expand...

How big is the boot hard drive?
This also involves viruses and malware but I need to get past this issue first. I could get to the log in screen but after I log in to the admin account, it is just a blank/black screen. But, if I log into another user account, I could see the desktop just fine. PLEASE HELP! I already tried opening task manager -> run new task -> open windows.exe and still no results. Thanks!
Sounds like you need to do a fresh Windows re-install
This happened suddenly a week or two ago.. after having this laptop for 4 years. Tried running Malwarebytes, Antivirus thinking it could be a virus. Am having no luck getting rid of this erroneous display. Can it be fixed without reinstalling OS (Which was bundled with machine and therefore would be years out of date? Thank you for any help or advise that will help to clear up this error. -Steve
When it asks you to input a product key you can type in the key on the underside of the laptop on the Vista sticker.
I wanted to change my user account name so I followed instructions from a article I found online in which it looked credible enough but apparently not It instructed to RUN quot Control Userpasswords quot which brings up the User accounts window Then I clicked on account I wanted to change name which happens to be main Admin account and clicked on quot PROPERTIES quot There I was able to change quot USER NAME quot Everything seemed fine until I tried to open WORD but failed with an error message it read quot click run virtualization han quot on top of window and the number quot quot inside the window I then went back to reverse what I did and found the quot USER ACCOUNT quot window empty my account that used to be there was deleted So I tried to System Restore and that failed with another error window I also noticed I was not able to open UNINSTALL PROGRAMS window can any body help me I would greatly appreciate your time nbsp
Start Windows system restore before you boot. Tap F8 key as it's turning on, you'll get the option (Windows 7).
To the best of my knowledge, I've never noticed a folder on the desktop of a Vista Home Premium specifically named "desktop". On mine, it has one & 99% of the time ALL downloads go in it. I have even deleted said folder but it always returns. No biggie, just curious.
Probably whatever software you use for downloads (or at least one of them, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) has accidently got a default value for the download location of 'desktop'. If you use a specialist downloader that would be the first place to look.
The trick will be to establish a different location to be used as default. You are using Vista I assume, but from Win 7 onwards, the location tends to default to the last one you specifically chose when prompted.
So download something, and take the option to 'let me choose' then select whatever you want, such as Favorites\downloads. The default should normally be Favorites\downloads (see below)
Note on a standard PC there are already several directories called 'desktop', for instance under Favorites, and under c:\users\ every user including \public and \default also has one. It's all hopelessly and unnecessarily complicated. For instance the location I just mentioned, 'Favorites' is not a real location at all, but is really C:\users\<myusername>
Also it is still quite common for older type software to assume the desktop is a reasonable place to put a downloaded file. This is mainly because it shows up under the users nose all the time, under any windows version. But to be honest, once you start trying to understand the whys and wherefores of a Windows OS you are just pointlessly shortening your life.
So I can't install my adobe acrobat pro unless I'm logged in under admin.
Any idea how I can do this to my other account?
This happens with multiple programs, not just adobe.
I am running windows xp Pro
make the other accounts admin. or install software for all the users.
if you only have limited account restart computer and keep pressing F8 button and when options show up choose Safe Mode and choose Administrators Account.
Hope it helps
A friend told me she was doing some school work of some sort on it amp now she nor I can get it to boot to desktop She said it has a virus but I however did manage just now to desktop to Home Premium won't boot Vista get it to the desktop amp was in the process of checking the settings in Google Chrome when the screen went black Since then I ve tried f repeatedly last known configuration a few times safe mode with networking amp probably others amp no joy I talked to her amp told her I might have to reset it to factory settings amp she d lose everything She said that would be ok Its a Windows Home Premium laptop Model SVE FXW I was considering putting Firefox portable on a flashdrive so I could hopefully get a scan or two going but I don t know I will continue to quot try quot to get it up amp going amp post back if I have any luck thanks any ideas nbsp
I think I should of posted this in Virus & Malware. Got Eset online scanner running in safe mode now.
Had a virus, got all cleaned up thanks to Broni, in the Virus Forums....
Still having Excel issues...if I try to open an Excel file without Excel already loaded.
Excel opens but requests User account Control Authorization before it will carry on.
Then says: "There was a problem sending the command to the program"...(the location of the file is displayed on the outside frame of this error)...then Excel loads on top of it with no file open.
I did move some files around to tidy things up prior to getting rid of the virus...but...
There are some files that Excel will open once it is loaded....those are displayed in Excel's recent files list....
Not sure if I should try uninstalling and reinstalling, repair fix maybe...??
Suggestions most appreciated.
The fastest solution will likely be to uninstall Excel (or the entire Office suite) and then perform a new installation of it. That won't affect any existing documents you've been using but will give you a fresh install of your Office software now Broni has finished with ridding your computer of nasties.
When I got my HP laptop it had a trial Office 2007 which expired yesterday. I want to purchase Office Standard 2007, which would give me Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint, but do I also have to upgrade my Windows Vista Home Premium to run Office Standard 2007?

I'm planning on installing Linux Mint 4.0 on my Vista rig. I currently have a 750GB harddrive with 3 partitions, one for Vista OS(60GB), one for programs(60GB), and one for data(movies/music/games/etc.). My question is....should I create another partition for Linux or would it be better to purchase another harddrive, maybe a 160GB, and install Linux and Vista OS on it with 80GB each?
If your just using Linux to experiment with Linux,then you could just give it
30 GBs on your main drive,as you won`t need much data space.
On the other hand,a second physical drive is great for backups of crucial data,
so you could go that route,and just give Linux 30Gb of an 80/160 Gb drive
(vary sizes to preference)
Does anyone know of any tool that can simplify the process of configuring roaming user profiles. I have 4 computer; 2 running XP and 2 Running Win 7 (Ultimate and Home Premium). I want to make my Win7 Ultimate my main computer (server) and store a user account in it which can then be accessed from any of the other computers. So, Is there any software to simplify this as I am sort of running into trouble!
Thanks in advance
No one has any idea of any possible program?
a works laptop has gone screwey (it mainly affects the user account) and i need to get the pop3 mail settings etc off that account.
It lets me log in as admin only, albeit very slow and haphazard. It hangs when trying to log in as the user.
Whilst logged in as admin is there any way i can access the users email and export to a .pst so i can then re-import it onto a working laptop? If i log in to the user in safe mode, then try opening outlook it comes up with an error, asking me to restart the program or reinstall.

Thanks for any help offered
Just browse to the relevant folder in the user's Documents and Settings..
If it denies access, take ownership of the folder and subfolders.
I have downloaded MagicTune Premium and have played around with it. I have changed the font size and want it back to normal. I can't find where to get to it, can you please help me with it?

A particular user on Exchange server 2003 gets this error when sending external email:
You do not have permission to send to this recipient.
server name.domain.local #5.7.1 smtp;554 5.7.1
Have compared the settings to a working one, and all look OK. We also tried recreating the user profile and email address but it still doesn't work.
As you got the error back from the server, there is nothing wrong with the client or Outlook. It is probably some setting on the server side, blocking this specific computer, user or recipient.
