Drag and Drop

Q: Drag and Drop

An alumni of mine asks for help and I can't.

He has Win 7 Home Premium
Windows Live Mail 2009
He has Hotmail configured into WLM as a POP protocol account. Hotmail is his default account. He has no other account in WLM.

His problem :

He cannot do Drag&Drop.
He tried to drag an e-mail out of WLM and drop it to the desktop.... no go.
He tried to drag and drop an e-mail directly from WLM into Documents folder .... no go either.
In both cases he saw a black circle with a black line across ( like a stop sign in black ) when he started the drag and drop. He ignore it and proceeded to drop ..... nothing

Any suggestions ?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Good day,

I am connected to a web media server and a VPN service on my PC and Macbook Pro. The services work properly and do not lose their connection on my Macbook, but lose their connection every day on my PC. This happens like clockwork. I will connect to my VPN and media server in the morning, and by mid-afternoon, they will have dropped their connection. Is it possible that apart from being a coincidental issue with both services I use, that it is an issue with my PC's network connection? The PC is hard-wired in. Does anyone have any troubleshooting recommendations or similar experiences to share?

Thank you,

So I sometimes play World Of Tanks on low settings with a stable 60-80 fps and suddenly it's gone down to 15-25 fps. This has happened before and it somehow went back up to 60-80 but I don't know what I did. Please help as I can barely play any of my games anymore!

Hello everyone,

I have an Hp Pavilion that I got about 2 years ago and I do play games on it. One game in general which is League of Legends. My concern is that if anyone knows about this game during teamfights when the computer is operating extensively because of all the action going on I always frame lag. My frames drop only during fights. When nothing is happening my frames are okay. As well other programs on my computer run slowly now as well like windows media player and just when I'm starting programs up on my comp. This happened now so long ago and it was a sudden change. I don't know what to try anymore. I have reformatted my comp and still the same issue. Help would be much appreciated thank you.

The HP Pavilion could be over-heating. After years of use, the CPU's thermal pads and paste become hardened and this causes the CPU to run hotter and hotter causing game play to suffer

So I have a really weird problem, my laptop is an acer, I7 intel core, Gtx760 and 8 GB RAM. every game that I play works great and everything but when I have a game on or even watching a youtube video and just leave the laptop inactive without pressing any button or moving my mouse, the FPS drops drastically. the sound is normal but if I'm watching a video on youtube it gets really slow or when I'm playing any kind of game and just leave the laptop inactive for a few minutes it get's really slow; but once I press any button or just move the mouse pointer it jumps back to normal. normally this isn't much of a problem but now I can't watch youtube videos without moving the mouse pointer all the time, nor can I play games with my Controller since FPS still drop a lot as if I'm inactive. what's weird is this never happens when I'm watching movies on VLC. please someone help

A:Strange FPS drop


Well now I just feel silly. I've identified the problem to be a throttling issue that plagues many M14x R2 users. If GPU temp exceeds 67C, it throttles and FPS tanks. Strange thing is: this has never happened before. I would be playing at 80+ temps and my FPS would be fine.

Anyway, I've identified my problem. Gonna try to find a fix. I'll post here if I find one in case future users have the same problem.

When I play Diablo 3 I get some fps drops , usually at the same places. usually im around 130 FPS but can go down to 50 or even 25 sometimes when its bad. its not unplayable but its no fun at all.

The places are demanding I guess, there is a lot of **** on the screen and action all around.

My current setup :

Nvidia 780Ti HOF , goes to around 60C during load
i5 4570 goes to around 65 during load
8 GB ram,

Im assuming the 780Ti should be able to handle Diablo 3 even when its demanding?

I used an AMD r9 290 earlier and got the same issue at the same places.

Before I changed card from the 290 to 780Ti I formated my computer and installed Windows 8 Pro.

So it shouldnt be any software causing this,

Am I doing something wrong here?

Is it perhaps my CPU?

What can I do?

I tried out DXtory2.0 to record Minecraft and downloaded the XVid codec to speed things up. But though the game runs fast (150fps when not recording, 60-80 when I am) the video comes out choppy when I watch later. The write speed on the folder I allocated to put the recorded videos in varies from 20-60 mB/s. I tried dedicating more RAM to Minecraft, setting priority of java high, setting priority of DXtory high, using a USB readyboost, etc. Any ideas as to why this may be?

Also if it helps, sometimes when I'm playing Minecraft with detailed settings, like rendering far and enabling smooth lighting, etc, it becomes choppy and lags for like half a second, before returning to its original 100+ FPS. When I am actually recording, the FPS of the video recorded is far, far slower (10-20FPS) while the game was running at 40-100 when it was being recorded.

My OS is Windows XP.
Memory: 2046MB RAM
Processor: Q8300 @ 2.50 GHz
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4850

I've spent ages trying to figure this out. It's really frustrating, but currently doing a malware scan. Thanks

A:Major FPS drop while recording, even with fast game

Recording gameplay while playing a game on the same machine is very taxing in general especially seeing as how mincraft is very CPU intensive. Your running on an old Q8300 and the program your using is probably taxing the machine to much and that is causing the skips.

You may want to try a program like Fraps that can limit the frame rates unless the program your using has that option. Many online youtubers or such limit the recording frame rate to 30FPS on lower machines and 60 on upper machines.

Thats probably what your going to have to do.

I've had my computer for a couple years. I built it myself. I've had no "major" issues until this. I am a gamer and have never had issues running any game with my current system. Now all of a sudden I go from playing something like World of Warcraft 30-60 fps (ranging from idle to 25 man raiding) with moderate to high graphics settings. Now my fps is dropping to 5 fps with lowest settings and while just standing around. This isn't constant, its intermittent. So I can't tell exactly what the issue it. I recently did a reformat of my Hard Drive so everything is fresh. The problem started shortly after doing this. All drivers are up to day as well.

A:Fps drop

Download the latest driver here: Chose the Custom install option and check the box saying "Clean Install". That should fix the issue, but you can make other optimizations like setting your power profile to high performance (press on the battery icon in the bottom right corner and select the high performance profile. Make sure you only select this profile when you are plugged in (not on battery). You should always game on power since gaming on battery halves your clock speeds. You can also right click on the game icon and select properties, then go to the compatibility tab and select that box that says "Disable Desktop Composition". The game should run optimally now.

Title say s most of it lately my internet has been dropping out quite often and although my modem always reconnects mostly by the time I have walked out to reset it my computer will not until rebooted I have tried resetting local area connection windows troubleshooting resetting router to factory settings updating firmware updating drivers on every device and when until won't restart Internet reconnect after Computer out drop using ipconfig release renew I get- quot An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection unable to contact your DHCP server Request has timed out quot I also get a weird audio glitch where my sound come out with jumps of static when my net drops I ve seen a few threads with roughly the same problems but under different circumstances and so far none of their fixes have helped I have also turned off my firewall and uninstalled my anti virus but nothing seems to be working so far my router is a d-link B and I am running windows -bit if that helps Thanks in advanced Shaun nbsp

A:Computer won't reconnect Internet after drop out until restart

What type of service is this?

DSL or Cable?

The modem do you own it or rent it? If you rent it contact the ISP and tell them to send a hit to the modem. If they can't solve the issue then the modem would need to be replace. But fore for you do that let them check out the modem on their end. Before you do anything else.

Each modem as a reset button on the back or bottom of them. Also do not press this button unless the ISP Tech as told you to do so? If the ISP said the Modem and your service is working correctly then move on to your Router. If the Router is 1 year then you should do a power recycle or do a full backup of the configuration, then do a factory reset. Also see if they have the latest factory firmware update for it.

So do this...

1. Have the Modem check out by the ISP first
2. If Modem checks out okay then go to step 3
3. Do a power recycle on the Router
4. Backup Router configuration
5. Do a factory Reset
6. Do a Factory Firmware Update
7. Restore Router Configuration from a backup
8. Test the Router
9. Should Router not manage the DHCP correctly? Replace the Router.

Last step, only if you have tried all steps with the PC also.


1. On the PC remove the driver (DO NOT DELETE IT) for the NIC (network interface card)
2. Reboot the PC
3. Let Windows Find the NIC and install the driver again
4. If wired NIC it will configure itself or if Wireless you need to make sure that the SSID, Passcode (Password) are set right.

Also if you have Windows restore the driver and you get an error saying device can't be found either you download the driver from the PC maker or another source. If that doesn't work then replace the NIC by disable it on the Motherboard or replacing the CARD in one of the PCI or PCI-E slots. If it's internal on a laptop you need to disable that and use a USB Wireless NIC. Install it's drivers from whatever source you get with that device.

Good Luck!

At first I put this problem down to just a bad choice of ISP but then one of the house-mates went away for a week and during that time we experianced no internet cut outs at all I had my laptop on for at least days in a row non-stop monitoring drops and there were none As soon as our rd housemate returned home we started having these drops again So my question is what are the possible reasons for these cut outs Could it simply be down to using more bandwidth when the of us are all connected or are there any known perhaps malicious programs that may cause such occurances We have an unlimited internet package but I am pretty sure it is something to do with this rd pc as at times when one of the other are not functioning we stil have the drops nbsp

Like I said, it only happens when there's a lot of 'sound' happening at once, so could it be something to do with sound channels or some such? I haven't the first idea when it comes to sound cards. >.>

A:GT 200 Cards Price Drop?

The GT200 cards will most likely get more expensive as there seems to be very little stock of them available as graphics cards vendors run down their present supply.
If you are dead-set keen on a GT200 then eBay (or other online auction etc) would be your best bet both for second-hand cards and unsold new cards approaching EOL (end of life).
Depending on where you are and if you have the ability to order etail then...
If you owe no particular allegience to the green team then...

If you can hold the upgrade until march then a HD 5850 is a very real possibility at your price point.

Whenever I'm downloading something (like from Fileplanet), it always starts off at pretty high speeds, like around 300k per second. But it slowly drops down to around 200k and hovers around there.

I'm curious as to why it drops to a stable speed and then stays there, instead of screaming all the time.



A:Why does my download rates slowly drop? (curious)

What's your download cap? If it's 1.5 mbit then it would make sense that you get a burst which is above your max and you slowly drop down to your max as your downloader is constantly calculating download speed by the amount of the file received/time. 1.5 mbit would be just under 200K/sec - about 187 K/sec. Calculating in your burst speed at the beginning you may get just over that if you maintain your max speed. Just a thought, I'm not sure that this is the correct answer to your question but you may wanna check your current cable modem/dsl config file by going to

I was wondering, with the new nVidia GTX295 being released on the 5th January, what do we think the GTX280 will drop to?

It's about $400 average at the moment right? Maybe $300 in a few weeks?



A:GTX280 Price drop? With the new card around the corner

The price will likely go down a good bit. The GTX295 is set to be the most powerful card on the market, and so it will displace the GTX280 as Nvidia's flagship card, thus driving the price of the latter down quite a bit. Possibly to ~$299 US. So if you're looking to buy a GTX280, just wait a bit longer and save yourself a few bucks.

Seeing as the GTX295 is a dual GPU card, its release is akin to the release of the 7950GX2 back in the day, and the subsequent price drop of the 7900GTX following that release.

If so, I'd say your server had a 1 second issue, that caused your game to fault.

Also it's always wise to clean your system temp files, I use CCleaner (works well)

And, sometimes you should reset your modem / router , most leave them on forever; but a reset often helps (that's why they always say Have you tried resetting, bla bla bla)

I can get 150 fps in Counter-strike, then after about 5-15 minutes it drops down to 30-50, and can last up to 20 minutes before it goes back up to 150, only to repeat after 5-15 additional minutes.

If anyone can help us solve this issue, I'm sure we'll both be extremely grateful.

A:Wireless Connections drop when Wired computer active

You need to update the firmware of the Linksys wrt54G.

Make sure ALL wireless systems are accessing in the same mode,
either B or G, but don't allow a mix.

bit torrent access is always a problem -- the router starts to drown in traffic.
When it's only your wireless systems, you're limited by the wireless rates,
and the router gets a chance to 'come up for air'. When the desktop starts
bit torrents, it consumes as much of the router bandwidth as possible and ...
glub-glub, you need a lifegurard

There is no cheap means to control which systems get how much of the bandwidth!

One alternative would be to get a wireless adaptor for the desktop and let
everyone have their fair share of the pool.

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to upgrade to a 7600GT video card. However, the 8600GT designed to replace the 7600GT is expected to come out on April 17th.

I can and would rather wait until after April 17th if it would mean the prices of the 7600GT will drop significantly. The problem is that there is a 30$ rebate at my local computer store until March 31st.

So could anyone help out and tell me if the prices of the 7600GT will drop? And if they will, how much will it be? Maybe past prices of th 6600GT will be an indication?

Anything would be helpful, and thanks in advance.

A:Should I expect a 7600GT price drop?

Just buy one now, with the $30 rebate. The prices might take awhile to go down $30.

Although it is HIGHLY advisable to stretch and get an 8600GT. VERY HIGHLY advisable, as it will own the 7600GT's rear end.

Man, I hope someone can help me. I've been searching for weeks.......

When I try to play streaming audio clips from various web sites (like FOX News or CNN), my broadband connection will usually get dropped. I have to re-boot and re-set everything, shutting off the modem and router, and then my connection will be back on.

The problem appears to be specific to RealPlayer V10.5. Even if I just start this program separately, without watching a video clip, it will cause the broadband connection to be dropped.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a solution?

Is there another program I can use besides RealPlayer?????

System specs:
Windows XP Pro SP2 and all updates, Asus A8N SLI mobo, 2GB ram, GeForce 7950 GT vid card, 300GB HD, AMD64 3500+ Athlon.

Broadband connection:
COX cable, SurfBoard SB3100 modem, Linksys BEFW11S4 802.11b 2.4GHz wireless router

Media Players:
RealPlayer 10.5, Windows Media Player

A:RealPlayer cuasing broadband connection drop

Does a sudden drop in the voltage output indicate a failure is imminent?

I checked voltages in pc probe II and with my multimeter.

My power supply is a TAGAN 480W. At least the psu has a 3yr warranty...
I haven't had a significant hardware changes recently(except a tv tuner, but it can't be drawing much).

I found a link to a thread with people having problems with this board and AGP cards. However I followed their instructions but to no avail. After looking at my PCMark 06 test results I saw that it listed my videocards core clock speed at 10mhz, yet the actual clock speed listed in the nVidia tab is 325mhz.

col 1 col 2
apple $44
apple $48
apple $50

I would like to view columns 1 and 2 in the drop down list to make the choice of which price to charge

depending which row "apple" is chosen from, the price goes into the amount column on the invoice, with the description showing only "apple"

I wish to only show "apple" in the invoice description area

so ... how to view 2 columns (in the drop down Box) but only make one entry (from col 1) into the invoice?

A:Excel Drop down box how to view 2 columns

It sounds like you would need to set up a third column in your sheet to combine the Col1 and Col2 information and then link your drop down to that. Assuming your drop down tool is an activex or forms type rather than "in cell validation" type, you can then fill your invoice with the information from Col1.

A:Can't drag and drop files from archives and warning messages about harmful files

Turn on Windows Firewall, and UAC should be set to its default settings.
Try right-click the drive that is causing the warnings, and click Properties
Then, if you see Unblock, click it
You might have to reinstall Windows 10 due to the issues of trying to edit the registry, etc causing the other issues with programs, but it is a drastic step, so try ways to fix it rather than reinstalling.

So I have a workstation with a weird issue I need to fix or I am down a workstation.
So normally one can drag an attachment out from outlook and drop it into a relevant  MS OFFICE suit program. However on one machine that is not the case, it just does nothing when I drag and drop attachment on associated program. 
I have done some preliminary Google searching, I haven't found consistency of the cause and effect of this problem so i am looking here for advise.

Hello. Yesterday I upgraded my laptop (win7, 4gb ram, intel 1,8HZ) to windows 10.
After update I feel great performance drop. Not only it works slower, but also has troubles with things that run smoothly on windows 7.
The biggest problem although is my touchpad. It became less responsive. Originally it didn't work at all. I had to install latest official driver.
Any suggestions to improve it?
I expected that performance would drop but not that greatly. Currently my old pc with 1 Gb Ram and 7 boots up faster. I tried disabling many services and it helped a little. Could someone give me a list of services which are safe to disable?

A:Performance drop after Update

Is it 32-bit or 64-bit? 64-bit edition requires 2GB RAM for smooth performance.Edit: Sorry, I looked only at the specs of your old PC. Did the performance drop occur just after the upgrade or after you started using it i.e. installing new applications et cetera?

I have been struggling with this problem for a while and now I am at my wits end about it. For a while now my computer has had major drop in performance to the point of freezing up. Usually I notice it when gaming so I thought it was a hardware problem. I no longer think that is the case.
I have checked the temps when the problem occurs and they seem to be good.
The funny thing is that these drops always seem to happen on the hour. I don't know if it is every hour but it does occur several times a day.
Anyone have any thoughts on what this could be?

A:Performance drop on the hour

Do you have any applications such as Antivirus or Antimalware apps running that do hourly updates? On the hour slowdowns sounds like you have some sort of 'polling' application running that 'calls' home. That's my initial thought without additional information.

Hi Guys I recently moved into my new apartment and have had problems with low frame rate while watching netflix and playing games Never used to have this problem before The CPU is frequently overheating and the computer is shutting down which has happened before but not so frequently With the frame rate drops which I've never and Frame drop overheat rate CPU had until Frame rate drop and CPU overheat now I'll be watching or gaming and the frame rate suddenly drops sometimes to below single digits It'll play fine for a few moments then drop again It increases to the point that the good frame rate lasts less and the bad frame rate lasts longer It also leads to CPU overheat crash The computer crashes to protect memory and saying the CPU has overheated The only thing I can think that would be causing both of these issues is my new apartment doesn't have AC yet and so it's considerably hotter than at my old place I bought a new w power supply with a stronger fan and it has reduced some of the issues but they're still there Specs Windows x Core Intel Pentium ghz per core GB Ram GTX OCIf there's any other stats you need let me know and can you tell me how to find them Used to just use dxdiag but dunno how to find it on Windows

A:Frame rate drop and CPU overheat

The move alone can have caused the problem.
It can be a fan's connector that has come loose or a fan got damaged or the heatsink has come loose from the CPU.

As I mentioned in my very first post, I'm an old XP hand.  I loved its D/D to the printer feature.  Apparently MS left out old, beloved features beside no DVD player.  D/D to the recycle bin does still work, as does D/D to folders.
I asked over at the Microsoft Community.  I got suggestions about creating or modifying property permissions.  I followed their suggestions, including following an external link to a very knowledgable fellow who gave step-by-step with the standard screenshots.
It didn't work.
May your greater minds and experiences lead me to the truth.
BTW  This forum engine has the best, coolest emoticons I've seen.  For instance Facebook's stink by comparison.

Hello, and Welcome
I am not sure this is your issue because the setting is supposed to be set as default.
Right click the Windows Globe and select Properties. Under the Start Menu tab click Customize. In the list make sure "Enable Context Menus and Dragging and Dropping" is checked.
If this is a desktop see if changing the mouse works or add a mouse if a laptop. Also try a new keyboard if a desktop. If the mouse is USB then switch USB ports. If this is a laptop then updating the touchpad driver may help.

This is not a serious issue - at least I don't think so - but all of sudden all of the sub menus of the drop down menus in Firefox have started opening on the right when they've always opened on the left. Why would that be?

I've got questions before I try for answers.
When you go into device manager are there any yellow or red warnings on any of the listed devices? Are all of the devices correctly listed? Are your drivers current?
What is your security software and is it current, what result do you get from a full scan?
I'm hoping that you are planning to upgrade to W7 soon. There is no support for XP and the security holes are growing daily.

speeds drop from 100Mbps to between 0 and 3 Mbps. I have purchased a PCI NIC to see if changing the hardware did anything (in case of failing on-board NIC).The only thing that restores my proper speeds are disabling/re-enabling the device or using driver install to reset the drivers. Indicates the TCP/IP stack might be getting corrupted, but it happens frequently.Other machines sharing same network for their internet connection are experiencing no problems at all. (2 laptops over wifi and a roku3). This machine is wired-in to the router.I have no idea how to troubleshoot this any further than I have already.

Welcome to TSG!

Unless you are posting in lots of places I am seeing a few posts about GTA V and windows 10 not getting along.
A yahoo search lists a whole page of results.

So far all I can gather is GTA V is not patched or completely ready for 10 yet.
Probably still in testing since it is so new of an OS.

Just keep checking for the latest windows patches, and driver updates.
Some people are having a problem and others aren't, nature of computers.
And you could try returning your CPU to the default speed. (default is best when troubleshooting.) Win 10 may not be as stable on an overclocked machine.
