Preferred Solution: Win7(64) no "color scan" option with Omnipage17

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.)

Typically this is a driver problem. find the driver from the print/scanner manufacturer and dl/install it.

The quot Idle-time Full System Scan quot in Norton v is bogging down my computer constantly and there is no option to turn it off in quot Automatic Tasks quot I contacted Norton and after several attempts to find someone at Norton who could understand what I just said above and getting quot hung-up quot on over Norton chat Inexcusable I was able to get a hold of a technician who told me that Norton intentionally removed this option quot for security reasons because they didn t want people turning it off quot The problem is people will then be forced to turn it off by turning off ALL scheduled tasks under quot Settings Norton option Tasks" available under "Virus Scan" No v4: 360 "Settings/Automatic Scheduling Schedule Manual Schedule quot and that is an even worse security problem than the relatively small one that would be created by turning off idle-time full system scanning Once the system has completed a full system scan all files are on-access scanned anyway so running a full system scan every - days is rather silly and extremely annoying--especially because it will continue to try to run every time the system Norton 360 v4: No "Virus Scan" option available under "Settings/Automatic Tasks" is idle if you cancel it A warning urging the user to not turn off idle-time full system scans without fully understanding the risks and after explaining the risks would be VERY preferable Or at least the option to run the full system scans when the system is idle on a certain day of the month week The schedule for idle-time full system scans really needs to be separate from other tasks In fact the BEST solution would be the option to change the scheduling options for EACH automatic task INDIVIDUALLY--with the option to change EACH one to quot Automatic Weekly Monthly Manual quot By forcing people to turn off ALL automatic tasks in order to control that ONE idle-time virus scan option ALL or NONE Norton has made the security problem they are trying to avoid much worse So in the mean time does anyone know a registry setting that will turn off quot Idle-time full system scans quot un-check the invisible box without turning off the other automatic tasks nbsp

it'll stay split unless you actually delete the 2nd partition. Just reinstall on c: & you'll be fine

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

are trying to better understand customer views on social support experience, so your participation in this
interview project would be greatly appreciated if you have time.
Thanks for helping make community forums a great place.

Hey everyone!
I've been trying all day to upgrade my Win 7 Ultimate 64bit system to win 8 pro, everything goes fine until I accept the terms and conditions only to see that the only option available for me to keep from my current system is "Nothing". No other options show. Does anyone here have a clue what the reason could be?

I have this issue too. My Windows Upgrade Assistant gives me only 1 option.

OK fellow "computer-holics", here's a difficult one for ya. I have a user who e-mailed me the following:

"Ever since I downloaded Crystal Graphics' "PowerPlugs v 1.2" (powerpoint plugin software I purchased which allows for 3D motion graphics on slides), Microsoft Powerpoint won't allow me to access "Slide Color Scheme" or "Apply Design Template" from the format menu...."

I've tried completely removing Office, and re-installing it, but to no avail. I have yet to find an uninstaller for the "PowerPlugs" software, so I haven't tried that yet. (I wan't to save that as a "last-resort" anyway....even when I DO find an uninstaller). Does anyone know anything about the PowerPlugs software that could help out in this situation? Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Unable to access "Slide Color Scheme" or "Apply Design Template" in Powerpoint

I can only suggest that you use this form to contact the vendor of PowerPlugs:

Whether you purchased it or not, it should certainly allow PowerPoint to continue to work.

I am running Windows 10 Professional 64 bit. Whenever I set the option "Turn off the display" to "Never", it reverts back to the default "15 minutes". This is under the "High Performance" profile. I have never, since Windows 3.11, ever had a setting change itself back. I have tried to change it and restart. It will either revert upon restart or shortly after. It will revert back even if I do not restart.

A:Power Option for "Turning off display" remains at "15 minutes"

That sounds like my problem - I leave the computer for an hour and it is shut down (I think sleep mode). I just need to hit the power button and it comes on to where it was when I left - but 2 of my USB devices are lost so I have to restart the computer anyway.

I changed all the power settings to NEVER. But his doesn't seem to make any difference......

I recently had my computer crash due to a TROJAN virus and at that time I had Windows XP service pack 3 which my computer man installed for me. After being infected I had to completely reinstall EVERY thing on my computer taking my computer back down to Service Pack 1 the only operating disks I had. Now when I do a Disk Clean Up, it doesn't have the option to "Compress Old Files." Can some one please tell me why this option is not there and how I could go about fixing this. Thank you.

Recently my computer has been very slow in logging in and shutting down. Also my computer has been freezing for atleast 20 seconds or more until I have to just shut it down. I also found last night that my Malawarebytes scanner found this "Rogue Installer" which I deleted. My computer is still running slow to shutdown so I'm not sure if this program is still in. Actually, for a few months I had been having some trouble(intrusions) with some type of virus.

Today, I wanted to try to clean the computer on Safe mode. I tried numerous of times by clicking fast or holding down the f8 key for safemode but nothing happens.

My second option was mscongfig box but I found there was no "BOOT. INI" option. I'm not sure if there is a way to restore this option? If not, is there an easier option to generate safemode? Thanks

Hi -

As you know, the files are in Portuguese, but the dumps are in the universal language of hexadecimal and I did find a few things which may help.

The bugchecks on the 8 mini kernel memory dump files -

(4) 0x3b (0xc0000005,,,) = system service exception, 0xc0000005 = memory access violation

(4) 0x1a (0x41790,,,) = memory management error

Both could be caused by rogue 3rd party drivers. Daemon Tool/ Alcohol/ other CD emulation software is undoubted involved and needs to be removed.

Update the first two drivers. Remove Daemon/ Alcohol and the burning app containing the pcouffin.sys driver -


netr7364.sys Thu Mar 12 23:13:08 2009 (49B9CF44) - RT73 USB Wireless LAN Card

RTKVHD64.sys Fri May 22 14:04:20 2009 (4A16E924) - Realtek HD audio

sptd.sys Sun Oct 11 16:55:14 2009 (4AD24632) - CD emulation

a0omnhk0.SYS Fri Aug 07 09:30:20 2009 (4A7C2C6C) - unknown; dynamically allocated by CD emulation software

pcouffin.sys Tue Dec 05 09:39:30 2006 (457584A2) - CD/ DVD burning driver
Your wifi is probably either Linksys or Ralink. Try both sites.
Linksys -->
Ralink -->

Realtek -->

Remove Daemon/Alcohol, update the wifi driver and the Realtek audio driver and see if BSODs persist.

After Mcafee scan shows: 2 "unresolved issues". They are 1. Generic PUP.x!ct 2. Generic PUP.z!ca. Mcafee says under "potentially unwanted programs" that they were "unable to delete" these malware programs. What are they and are they harmful to my system? How do I remove them if necessary? I am a bit of a novice so thanks for the help. THX, SK

A:"Generic PUP.z!ca" & "Generic PUP.x!ct" Mcafee - "unable to delete" after scan

Hi there.

Those are most probably false positives. What files are being detected as such?

When something is labeled "Generic" it means that McAfee doesn't know what it is but that it looks like something else it knows about.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

When I plugin an external USB hard disc or USB stick it appears that Windows 7 pops up a dialog window asking me:

"Do you want to scan and fix removable disc?"

After reading a while in Internet I saw two methods for disabling these popups:

1.) Disabling service "Shell Hardware detection"

2.) enabling "Turn off Autoplay" in gpedit.msc

Whats the difference?

I want be sure that if I plugin a new USB device (like an USB stick or USB printer or USB hard disc) this USB hardware IS successfuly detected and joined by Windows 7.

So I can imagine that the first method is too brutal because it prevents inclusion of new USB devices

Is this correct?

If yes: Why is it recommended so often for avoiding the popup?


A:Disable popup "Do you want to scan and fix remov.device""? 2 methods?

You get that message because Windows detects something wrong with the file system on the device. This can happen if the device was unplugged without "Safely Removing Hardware", and a transfer was not complete.

The methods you mention just mask the problem.

You can let Windows scan and fix the drive, choose: fix file system errors.
or, do a full format on the drive, not the quick format.
Or, run Chkdsk /f X: manually, X = the problem drive letter, you may have to run it more than once.

It is always a good idea to move all data off the drive first, then copy it back after the fix is complete. This also fixes bad file problems that can contribute to the error.

The drive probably has it's "Dirty Bit" set. This is a single Hex value that tells Windows the file system is no good. Chkdsk and formatting will often reset the dirty bit, but sometimes not on the first attempt.

To see if the dirty bit is set:
Open a command prompt > Start > type: cmd > right-click on Command Prompt and choose “Run as administrator”
and then type:
fsutil dirty query x:
(substitute the letter "x" with the drive letter that is giving you problems)

If the dirty bit is set you will get a message that "Volume X is DIRTY".

Keep running chkdsk /r , or chkdsk /f /r until the dirty bit clears.

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

This problem in Firefox started around the time of the V video drivers for ATI HD video cards I have an HD running v and an HD running v Or it might have been around the time v of Firefox came out I'm currently using v Don't know exactly So the problem may be tied to v of the ATI video drivers or it might be to a recent version of Firefox Unclear Since the issue does not show up with Internet Explorer but only with Firefox I decided to post the question here rather than only Firefox "Color text, with ATI video card, ringing" on in the Video sub-forum Anyway the problem is that text displayed or in a composition window like this as I write often seems to quot vibrate quot with colors around the letters Kind of like a quot video convergence quot problem on an old CRT where the RGB guns were not all focused on the same spot Seems that scrolling the page up or down can often cure the problem as the screen is re-painted or most often it just kind of disappears on its own after a while for some reason Anybody else notice this Here's what it looks like Amazingly I was able to get a screenshot before the quot color "Color ringing" on text, ATI video card, only with Firefox ringing quot disappeared and everything was once again perfect black text

A:"Color ringing" on text, ATI video card, only with Firefox

Well, whoever the culprit is... either (a) ATI Catalyst v13.1 or higher, or (b) Firefox v20 or higher... the "workaround" seems to be to TURN OFF HARDWARE ACCELERATION IN FIREFOX.

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> General tab, and then un-check "use hardware acceleration" item in the Browsing group.

That definitely eliminates the symptom.

But it also has the undesirable (for me, anyway) effect of eliminating all of the benefits of hardware acceleration! And in particular, on SevenForums because of the forum software and the method of presenting text in posts, when hardware acceleration is disabled the text lines in posts have a horizontally closer together character spacing, and also a vertically closer together line spacing. This makes it slightly "denser" than when hardware acceleration is enabled and things have a slightly larger horizontal and vertical spacing for the identical text.

I went through a similar story last year when Firefox blacklisted Catalyst 12.8, automatically disabling hardware acceleration because of instability issues. I had to go back to Catalyst 12.6 to be able to retain hardware acceleration, at least until ATI resolved the driver issue in 12.10.
So for now, at least I understand that I'm not crazy, and that there's nothing really wrong with my systems.

The problem is definitely software somewhere, either in Catalyst or in Firefox, but obviously it's a relatively new software problem. And hopefully it will eventually go away as one or the other software vendors corrects something which is at the heart of the problem.

In the meantime, I'll "live with it" (annoying as it is) since it kind of generally self-disappears as I scroll pages up and down, which is "good enough" for me. I prefer how things look on this forum with hardware acceleration enabled, so that's the biggest influence for this decision.

Can someone please point me in a specific direction, like

Hi --

I just migrated to a new hard drive and did a clean install of Win7 (did not have SP1 on the DVD).

During the Updating process, windows stopped working and I received an error, something about running Update again, etc. So I rebooted and finished the Upgrading further problems noted.

However, I view the "Installed Updates" and see that KB2604114 and about 20 other updates "FAILED." But when I view the "Update History," it lists KB2604114 and the others as "installed."

I'm confused. Are the updates I'm referring to "FAILED" or are they properly installed?


A:Win7 - "View Update History" vs. "Installed Update"

In your description, you might have switched the observations.

"History" is a log that tracks attempts at installing specific updates. One user might have multiple failed attempts for a particular update; or multiple successful attempts if one was looking for a source of a problem.

"Installed updates" records the last successful installation of a specific update; no timestamp, just the date.

A:Excel "not responding" when try to sort by cell color

Hi, welcome to the forum.
You forgot to mention which version of Excel you're using but the number of rows and the conditional color scheme suggests either 2007 or higher
There is one anoying feature in excel and that is qhen you're processing a large ammount of data the message "... (Not Reponding)" often appears but in reality it's still busy.
I fell for that in the beginning and being impatient like I am I generally tried ending the process to see what was wrong.
I learnt to be patient (with Excel) and let it 'do it's job' and when it's finished . . . it worked.
Did you try and give it the time too?
Without the data and the way you are explaining it I assume that this could be the issue, it's working but you don't see it doing anything.

While printing some pages, my printer got a Paper Jam error, and when I opened it up to check, there was magenta powder everywhere! It is mostly on the rollers at the bottom, and all over the front of the magenta cartridge (which happens to be the bottom one), and some on the black filmy thing. So anyway I'm wondering if this is fixable or should I get a new printer? This one is out of warranty; HP phone support could not help me but they suggested email support - I've waited 5 days and no reply. I really loved this printer! It was fast, any computer in the house could print to it, and I've only replaced one cartridge so far.

A:HP 3600N color laserjet cartridge "explosion"

if there was powder all over the place it sounds to me like that particular color had been getting everywhere and dried up over time. It wouldnt have dried to a powder in the few moments between getting a jam and you checking it.

Could be a bad cartridge, bad printhead... bad anything. My suggestion is to clean it up, replace the cartridge and see how it works.

The "black filmy thing" is probably just the ribbon cable that controls the ink cartridge, but the only real way to be sure is to replace what you can replace (the ink, and possibly at a later date the printhead if this model has one) and see if it works.

The good news is that the networking feature has been in printers for ages now. it is just a matter of setting it up. Many printers these days are capable of it.

A:How to disable "Do you want to change the color scheme" message

Don't know if this will be of any help - I have an i7 and a good gfx card, but I have one program that insists on changing the theme. The prog is the screen recording app Camtasia, and it's really annoying to get interrupted 2 mins into a session. My solution was to create a basic theme that I named 'recording' with no aero etc that I switch to before I do any Camtasia stuff.

R-click the desktop and > personalize, then click Windows 7 basic and tweak desktop, colors etc to your liking. R-click this unsaved theme and give it a name. Then when you are doing your 'demos' or whatever, switch to the basic theme first. It's a PITA, but that's what I have to do on my fairly powerful system (o/c i7-2600K, GTX 750Ti 2GB, 8GB RAM).

Well I have a old discontinued hp 170 color copier. Awhile ago it started "bleeding" ink. It finally got to the point where it was going through one black cartridge a week. So we decided to buy a new one. Well boss wants to know if anything can be replaced to fix it. I'm guessing no, but I could be wrong. So here I am, if anyone has any info on replacement parts message back.

A:Solved: Hp model 170 color copier is "bleeding".

Yes it can be fixed, at a high cost the cartridges are combination of print heat and storage tank and the print head is controlled by the printers main board, this is telling the print head to inject but not telling it to hold, therefore it's empting the tank probably threw one or two jets, that's why it takes a week to empty it, the only way to fix it is to send it to HP and let them fix it, there are no consumer replaceable electronics in it, it will cost more then two times what you paid for it when it was new.

I have a color photo I have been using for years on various projects (small sample attached). Recently, I started having a few items printed professionally, and the results are rather poor. The blue background comes out looking gray, and the food colors are all dark and lifeless. On my end, the image looks great on my monitor and when printed on an inkjet printer.

Obviously, the problems are due to the conversion between the RGB image and the CMYK printing process.

I don't have any software that can convert to CMYK, and at least one of the printers wants a JPG source anyway.

On my last project, I sent a hard copy proof for them to color match, but the final result wasn't much better than the standard color matching.

So, I'm curious if there's anything I can do on my end that will improve the quality of the final image when printed?

A:Hyper-V: No "Insert Integration Services Setup Disk" option

Hi MaximRecoil, welcome to the Ten Forums.

All integration components are included in Hyper-V, there is no separate integration setup disk available. The full integration is called Enhanced Mode and it is only available for Windows 8 and later, Windows Server 2012 and later and Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS Linux guest operating systems. The Enhanced Mode adds for instance audio and video support.

For the network issues, Windows XP requires a so called Legacy Network Adapter to be used on guests. Using the legacy adapter Windows XP has fully working network connections. About setting up a Windows XP guest in Hyper-V, see the tutorial (Part Five is about XP / Vista virtual machines): Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Running legacy Windows guests (as your Windows XP guest) in Hyper-V is best done using the Remote Desktop Connection instead of the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Connection application. Simply allow remote desktop connections in XP guest and use RDC to connect to it to get full audio and video.

Since the new year, I have observed in a few systems including the one I use most frequently, that a right-click on any program or file brought up in the start menu brings up only one selection - "Properties". And when selected, "Properties" brings up the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" screen - just as if I were clicking on the Quick Task bar itself and selecting Properties.

If you open the registry editor and go to:

Make sure the value of this is set to 0 and if not change it.

Also check here:

You should find the same key "NoChangeStartMenu"
And make sure this is also set to 0.

I can access both drives fine via explore, open or double click.
But on the esata backup drive,, I keep seeing a 3rd option "Open Autoplay...". It also allows me to access the drive.

I tried unchecking the 'use autoplay for all media and devices', but this option still persists.

A:Solved: "Open Autoplay..." context option normal in Vista?

That's quite normal for all removable storage devices on all editions of Windows Vista.

"I tried unchecking the 'use autoplay for all media and devices', but this option still persists."

Unchecking the option merely stops the autoplay dialog box from opening automatically, whereas the right-click context-menu for "Open Autoplay" allows you to open the autoplay dialog box manually. It's a matter of personal preference, but the manual option will always be available in the context menu regardless of the settings in the Autoplay options.

Those "Rotate..." items are put there by Windows Photo Viewer. If you only see them with jpg files, I guess you are using another image viewer that has taken the associations for everything but jpg? You might try to add jpg to that other photo viewer's associations.

Otherwise, a quick fix is to disable Windows Photo Viewer. Navigate to:
C:\Program Files\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll

Take ownership and full control of PhotoViewer.dll
Rename to PhotoViewer.dll.bak

You might like an alternate image viewer - how about FastStone Image Viewer
download link here
I recommend using the portable version.
In the settings interface, associate all your image files with FastStone and everything will open with it, and no context menu "Rotate.."

P.S. I did look for a registry or a dll-hack fix, but it is not readily apparent - maybe buried in binary code somewhere ...

Hi, new to this forum.
Windows live mail in windows 7 home preminum 64 bit has left the option of creating a new contact group from its drop down list. Here is what I have done to correct problem. Going to c:\users\uername\contacts and than right clicking on blank white space and selecting customize folder\customize and clicking drop down arrow. On the drop down list there is no "contacts" option. This procedure came from a several forums that I have visited. So the next step I did was to make sure that windows live mail was my default,and it was. I than tried and made windows contact my default. The results did not help. Been working on this off and on for four days. Sure could use some help.
thank you

How can I remove the "Filmstrip" option from the View submenu of the right-click context menu for folders?

I've been doing a lot of troubleshooting, and something I changed a while back must have added the Filmstrip option. For a very long time, the 'Thumbnails' option was at the top, so I keep setting it to Filmstrip by mistake. I know it's not a big deal, but it is annoying, and since I never want to use Filmstrip view, I'd like to just remove the menu option completely.

a friend told me how to set up my screensaver so that it scrolls thru all my pictures in "my pictures" folder. I've done so, but there's quite a delay between pictures, it doesn't seem like it's showing pictures from the whole folder, sometimes the pictures are very small off to one corner, and in-between pictures the screen is blank for a bit and usually has a symbol on it such as a musical note, "exit", a figure running, etc. My friend seems to have hers set up the same way, but it doesn't have these problems. It just scrolls thru her pictures, one after the other, with the pictures taking up the whole screen.

Windows7 64bit
Every time windows restarts it pauses at the Boot Manager console and I have to "Choose an operating system to start". The first option is a normal startup and the second is Windows (Recovered).

I've never had any issues which would warrant a Recovery prompt but i'm presented with this option each time windows restarts. Is there any way to bypass this console and/or clear this "recovered" option?

A:How to bypass Windows Boot Manager. Prompting for "Recovered" option

It sounds to me like you may have a problem with your boot mgr. I do not get this. I would boot with a start up or recovery disk and get to the C: prompt and enter:

bootrec/ fixmbr
bootrec/ fixboot

remove the disk and reboot. You should be fine.

Cannot keep "thumbnails" as default viewing option throughout Windows Explorer programs & functions

Running XP Home, Version 2002, SP2

All my folders are set to thumbnail in windows explorer, but when I go to send a picture on msn or open in another application the pictures are in list view.

This requires an extra step to view the thumbnail, having to go to "view menu" then check thumbnails to preview files before opening/sending.

I have scoured the internet for a solution, to no avail.

Anyone be so kind as to lend any expertise on the issue?

Thank you.

What's a quick and easy way to remove windows.old since Disk Cleanup seems to be missing the option to do so in Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

I gave myself permissions via CMD which failed(Every file access denied, even in an admin CMD), so I tried one last time to run a Disk Cleanup and when it finished I finally saw the option to remove it........ It was like the 5th time I've ran it and it seemingly randomly starts to work.

A:No "remove old windows installations" option in Disk Cleanup.

It's best to give yourself permission to access the entire drive before you install the new OP system. That way you will have permissions to do what ever you want with the contents of the drive from inside the new Op system. Of course hind site is always 20/20.

The disk clean up problem sounds like a bug to me, nice find.

I want to remove the option of ?Format? from context menu for drives. Could I get some help on how to do this?

A:Removing "Format" option from context menu for drives!

I guess it is not possible to remove/disable the "Format" option from the Context Menu for drives. The only way is to just disable the user's Context Menu.
To do that, you have to create the registry data listed below and then Sign out and Sign in.
Registry Location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Policies\Explorer
Value: NoTrayContextMenu
Options: 1=Enable 0=Disable

Using Outlook 2000 with multiple POP mail accounts, on one machine when I did this I had a little drop down next to the send button that allowed me to choose which account to send a new email message from.

On a different machine (still Outlook 2000) the second account was set up but there is no choice and it sends through the default account only, does anyone know how to fix this !

I have tried looking in the file menu but it only has "send" but it should have "send using" as well.

driving me crazy !

A:Outlook 2000 - multiple accounts but no "send to" option!

Hmmm, if you have the multiple accounts set up properly, then you should be able to have the little drop down arrow on the send button to select which account to send from, but . . . .
right-click the toolbar int he opened mail and select Customize. In the Customize window, click on Commands tab, File in the left pane and scroll down in the right pane tioll you see Send Using. Click and drag that to where you want the button to appear on the toolbar and let go of the mouse button.

Click Close.

Now you can click that button to select which account to send with.

If the 2 accounts do not appear, then you do not have them both setup correctly.

Windows 10 Home Version 1607 (Build 14393.187).


all setting options of the Energy save plan have the value "never".
"Screen turn off" and "Energy save modus after", "Battery" und "AC-Adapter",
but if I am reading a Document in Word or a Webpage in Internet using the Browser
after some time of inactivity with the mouse, for example, the screen will be turned off
and the Notebook go to the energy save modus.

It seems, that this probably started happen after the recently Windows Update from Version 1511 to 1607.
I have seen the available Drivers of Toshiba for this model but they are the same since the year 2015
which I already installed after the migration from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Version 1511.

Could you please help me?.
Thank you.

Upgrading my wife's Win7 laptop, but the initial startup screen only displays "use express settings" as the only option. There is no "Customize Settings" option on that first screen. I know I can allow Express Settings and then go back in and change all of the many settings that I would be uncomfortable with (of which there are many) but I really dislike that option.

1. Change option
2. Change option, back to single click and back to double click

I have a computer that is dual booted with windows 7 and windows 10. My windows 7 operating system is very slow and malfunctioning. But I have an old system image backup when my windows was healthy and fast. So I want to restore Windows 7 from this image. But I don't want to format and damage Windows 10 that I installed recently. So here is my question: I saw an option to exclude disks for not restoring or formatting specific disks from restoring. So will this option work for bootable disks so that my windows 10 drive remains unchanged? Can anyone answer me if anyoneknow or has done this restore before? Thank you.

Hi all,
In Win7 Home Premium, is there any way to remove or hide the "Burn" option from the default Windows Explorer menu configuration? I have the Nero suite installed, so I don't really need the inbuilt Windows capability to burn discs, and I'm forever hitting that option when I mean to create a new folder. It's a pain, because Windows doesn't readily forget it, and keeps nagging me that I have files queued to be burnt to disc when I want to do other things.

Thanks for any help.

Hopefully other users will be able to provide you a technical answer to these questions (I've just answered your related post on ''Windows Backup'' within CACS)

But I'm wondering, when you say these options are disabled, are the boxes for ''Startup Apps'' and ''Windows Backup'' not checked for you, but simply greyed out?
