Preferred Solution: Can't get rid of Yahoo search no matter what I use or do

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.)

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.
 

A:No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

I had an EVGA 780TI working great. My 980 arrived so I swapped. All I got was a black screen. After taking the card out and putting it back in a few times nothing changed. Giving up I put my 780ti back in and now that just gives me a black screen too.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Edit: My mobo gives the code A0 which is normal so I don't think it detected anything was wrong.
 

A:Just bought a 980, now all I get is a black screen no matter what GPU I use

If your not getting an error code its probably booting up normally. It maybe defaulting to the integrated card for some reason so I would try plugging onto the on board video when booting to see what happens.

If that is the case you will just have to go into the bios and change your default video card to the PCIE.

Hello,

i understand how to set up dual channels with matching pairs - that is not my question. What i can't find the answer for is this:

If i have a matching pair of 512 = 1g
and a matching pair of 1g = 2g,..

Does it make a difference which pair is in which channel? Should i have 2g in channel 1 and 1g in channel 2, or would this make no difference?

thank you!!

Madilyn
 

A:Dual-channel RAM -- more in channel 1 or 2? Does it matter?

You can run different stick of RAM at the same time in Dual channel asynchronous, but I think they'll operate at single channel speeds.
If you decide to run in asynchronous mode, I think that it doesn't matter.

My question is I'm getting a new G. Card, do I get (examples, I haven't made a decision.)

1. A newer Radeon 6800 series with only 512mb of mem
or 2. A Older maybe 6500-6700 series with 1-2GB of ram?
 

A:Graphics cards: Does MB/GB (memory) matter?

What are your system specs and budget? What kind of PSU do you have? what's your budget?

OK! I am a noob at this!
I am running XP Pro 32-bit. I want to replace the Video Card. Nothing great or expensive...just a decent one. It for a friend (senior, that is why XP). I just got him a Dell Vostro 200 slim, added a 1TB HD and installed all drivers and XP. Please let me know 3 things:

1. Does ddr2 or ddr3 matter on the video card..is one better to run on XP
2. 64-bit or 32-bit. I assume 64 will run on 32-bit XP
3. Any suggestions on the card or where to buy (PCI Express 2.0X16)
Thanks! Ynot
 

A:Does it matter if you use a DDR3 or DDR2 video card?

The only thing you need to know about buying a single graphics card:

Do I have a large enough power supply for this card?
Do I have the appropriate card slot for this card?
If the card is 2 (or 3) card slots wide do I have room in my case?
What monitor cable connector will I be using?

Everything else may be important for choosing the card you want but not needed to get the card working.

1) Graphics card memory type is irrelevant as far as the operating system is concerned.
2) I'm not sure why you are asking the second question.
3) We need to know what you will be using the card for. (A slim form factor doesn't give much options)

Hello there I hope I am posting in the right place First off the spec of my laptop AMD Athlon tm II P Dual-Core Processor GHz GB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD I run Windows -bit The problem is that I cant seem to run games without getting lag For instance Dragon Age- the only requirement that my laptop might not meet is the processor dual core minimum however I can even top that I can make graphics the best quality or make it the worst it lags almost the same Oblivion that thing requires a Pentium yet I still get lag again the same situation where I can put the best or the worst graphics out? lag is there what, way no matter no Constant on The lag that I am talking about is not terrible for instance the games run at around or more FPS judging by the eye and every once in a while drops to around It is not much but definitely makes the playing experience much less enjoyable I do turn off all of the background programs I even use this little program game booster The hard drive is not crammed to the top I even separated the drive to a few parts for games and for Windows So yea any tips Or am i doomed to play in this ridiculous situation where no matter what Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out? graphic settings you put on you still get lag PS When games are turned on the ventilator blows out quite hot air nbsp

A:Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out?

How big is the hard drive? How big are the partitions? When you partition a hard drive, you waste a lot of space and slow down its data access. Something you never want to do with a laptop

I guess it depends matter? Does really size on who you ask Really though I do have a question about SSD and size It has been asked over and over but I have not seen any threads that really answer my question What size SSD would be the best option for Does size really matter? me I do your normal computer operation but do a lot of serious video work I have many programs Does size really matter? that I need to use for different things that I do Several different things for video large programs office programs that I have for home automation hundreds of gb of music hundreds of pictures tb of video Large programs for pictures I know I won t store any of the music pics or video on the SSD I have read many many many conflicting reports on what to do with your SSD My big question is will I get faster video rendering if the program is on the OS drive Where is the best place to put my programs On another drive or on the same partition as the OS I want what will be best for video work nbsp

A:Does size really matter?

Id use 124GB SSD to load my OS, Video Editing Programs and other main programs that you have on. Keep all the data such as music, pictures, videos on a normal HDD.



My big question is will I get faster video rendering if the program is on the OS drive?Click to expand...

You mean if the program is on the SSD with the OS? Id guess so since it will write the data faster, but I am not expert and on top of that I don't have a SSD. But also a GOOD CPU will play a good roll in that.

As long as your case supports the motherboard spec (ATX, mATX, etc) you'll be fine.

In search of a new monitor...

Hi, just sold my old Samsung 205BW and started a tiresome search for a new monitor, been through the same thing when I've moved from CRT to LCD. I can afford a 300USD monitor.
So far my list consists in: BenQ G2420HDBL (LED backlit), Samsung SyncMaster 2494LW(BW), Asus VH242H, Philips 230C1HSB, Samsung 2343BW, Philips 240SW9FS (1920x1200).
I tend to go on 16:10 display instead of 16:9 but it's not a must and I'm open to advices as far as they are documented and pertinent.
Will use the monitor mainly for gaming but also for CAD and surfing the web.
Thanks in advance.
 

A:In search of a new monitor, LCD-LED backlit

$300 will buy you plenty of monitor. what size are you looking to go with? i am using a 23" Acer X233H with my desktop and I love it. i think i bought it for ~$230 back in 2009 and it was under $200 last time i checked. you should be able to go even bigger in the $250-$300 range. i would recommend something with a good contrast ration and around 5ms or less response time. pixel aspect doesn't really matter...

btw Darkseed is amazing

Hey! If my computer has DDR2 RAM in it, does it matter what kind of memory is on the gaming video card?? Should it be DDR2 as well, or can it be DDR3? I just wanted to make sure.

The memory type on the graphics card is independent of the memory type in RAM. It can be DDR3 even if you have DDR2 RAM.

I need to upgrade my video card. I'm not sure what I have at the moment. I need to know if its PCI Express or AGP. I read a few older post and they recommended downloading Everest and posting the Motherboard make and model. Can anyone assist me by telling me what slot I have? and what kind of video card would be pretty good to use for normal use and a little gaming? I play Diablo 2 Expansion, and I'm looking to spend about $150.

I blindly installed drivers that were recommended to me by DriverGenius, and it ended up killing my connection. My 2Wire Homeportal lost connection after I installed the drivers. I've uninstalled the 2Wire Homeportal program, but now I can't reinstall it because I get a "The SBC Yahoo DSL installer was unable to configure your computer for DSL."

I didn't have a system restore point prior to the driver installation, for some dumb reason, and now I have no idea what to do.

Also, my computer no longer detects my network adapter.

As you can see from my post just below this one my computer is fried. My roomate has a Intel computer and I was wondering if i can take the RAM from my AMD system and put it into his computer. Or if this will cause a conflict with hardware.
 

A:Does Intel or AMD matter when installing RAM

No there is really no such thing as Intel ram and AMD ram. It depends on if the two computers use the same memory type. A new computer uses DDR2 while an older computer would use DDR1 and an even older computer would use SDRAM. A good ram dimm would probably be interchangeable between a new Intel computer and a new AMD computer. A computer's motherboard must be able to accommodate the ram's type, speed and voltage specifications to be able to work in that motherboard.

i believe my mobo only accepts single channel memory, i tried to upgrade my system with dual channel, and it reboots constantly. please advice!!!!!
 

A:single or dual channel memory does it matter?

There is no such thing.....

The memory DIMMs are neither single or dual channel, it's the motherboard that determines how the RAM is accessed. Did you match exactly the specifications of the original RAM when you upgraded?
Please follow this link to Tedster's guide for upgrading RAM: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic47210.html

When RAM is sold as "dual channel" it simply means that there are two DIMMS (each with half the amount of the upgrade value), one for each channel of a dual channel motherboard.

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?
 

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

This is an advanced question. I'm just seeing what anybody might have to chip in. So I'm working with a SBS 2003 R2. We have the local intranet (companyweb) that uses SharePoint for the document sharing and what not. SharePoint has a feature that enables users to search on the companyweb page. However, this feature does not come standard. It has to be implemented. I've been finding a couple of different options available. The strongest one seems to be just installing SQL Server 2000 or higher to supplement the back end database for the SharePoint Search. Has anyone had to work with this before and have any suggestions?

P.S.- SBS does install SQL desktop engine "stock" onto the server. But it doesn't have anything actually running in the background. Thanks!

There is nothing wrong with a 3 Ghz processor nor with AGP. It would help tho if you posted some specs on your present system beyond that and described the specs for the new ram.

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

Hi all,

Please bear with me, as I'm very much a newbie. I'm looking at the following two GeForce 6600GT AGP video cards:

GIGABYTE GV-N66T128VP Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 VIVO AGP 4X/8X Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814125179

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130220

Is brand a considerable factor to consider? Is the difference in performance truly worth $45? (I actually found the Gigabyte card at zipzoomfly.com for $10 less, but that's still a notable gap in price.) I noticed a Sapphire Radeon x800GT 256MB card on newegg for only a few dollars more, so is that perhaps the best course?

I would greatly appreciate any insight into the differences. Thank you very much for your time and patience.
 

A:Does brand difference matter with GeForce 6600GT cards?

the gigabyte u listed from newegg has passive cooling thats why its more expensive. I havent had any experience with Gigabyte. but i have with eVGA and i can say they r a good brand. give u the chance to upgrade ur card too while paying only the difference.

what u should look for are warranties and google aroudn to see how well the manufactures handle their customers. I believe eVGA now gives their video cards lifetime warranty and they have good tech supoprt and customer service according to experience.

however be warned, their video cards are pretty loud (especially the 6600GT)
If ur planning to up the stock cooling, then its no matter.

hi helpful people, i recently (yesterday) installed Verizon DSL and have no problems with it except that when i access my Yahoo mail it takes frustratingly forever to download anything. When i used my old ISP again, as i haven't cancelled it yet, Yahoo worked fine. So i contacted Verizon who told me it was either a Yahoo problem or a computer problem??? When i informed them that it only started when i installed their software, and went away when i used my other ISP, they inferred i was some kind of ignorant *****. They were absolutely no help. So what gives? Am i some kind of ignorant *****, or could it indeed be Verizon stuffing it up? Everything else downloads fine. Could it be that i have mainly Australian Yahoo email addresses, thereby creating some sort of spam problem? I appreciate your help.
Thanks

A:Yahoo email problems with verizon dsl

it could be many things, but let's start with some basics.
You mentioned Verizon DSL, implying a telephone connection rather than
a cable. Secondly, how do you access your original ISP; dial-up?

Is it like AOL which presents the whole interface of a browser (totally unnecessary).

With the DSL modem in place, I would bet you could just start any browser and
it would access the Internet just fine - - including your Yahoo Email. Once your
computer has IP, Gateway and DNS addresses, your good to go and all programs
which have tcp/ip ability will run without knowing how or who(the isp) got
installed or configured.

you can verify your tcp thus;
run->enter the word
cmd
hit enter
then type
ipconfig /all

while wondering around my local "PC WORLD" i saw an "IOMEGA CDRW/DVD-ROM/ 7 in 1 CARD READER" drive but it was in an external case and had a hefty price tag (79.99) which was far too much for my student wallet.
What i was wondering is if it was possible to get this fantastically handy drive to be mounted internally for a lower price?
I have asked IOMEGA but they tell me they have stopped producing the product.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET THIS DRIVE TO MOUNT INSIDE MY PC FOR LESS THAN 79.99? (the drive must be black)

any help is appreciated

alright, so ive been looking quite a bit on newegg.com, and wanted to check here about cases. until i see a better case for the price, the antec cases have gotten insanely good reviews all around. great PSU, great design, great price. however...it looks a little too simple for me, i was looking for something a bit more adventurous. however..most of the "pretty" cases come with mediocre or bad psu's..or so it seems. can anybody prove me otherwise? or have any cool case suggestions?

cases ive been looking into: rosewill (so far, my fav, but might have to replace the psu, as with the other cool-looking cases), raidmax, and aspire. im looking to spend around 70-80..100 if it's really worth it. any suggestions on psu's if i need to replace?
 

A:case search

You need to spend that amount on a decent PSU alone!
Enermax, Antec TruePower, the Fortron PSUs from 400w onwards (with 12cm fan). I love the Hiper Type R 480w.
Whatever case you buy (possibly with the exception of Antec), they nearly all have crappy PSUs, but at least you get a spare for emergencies that way.

A:Video Card Search, Please Help

If you're not so much into gaming, and wish to use it for video editing, you might also want to consider VIVO as an option (Video In Vidio Out) and perhaps a bit more RAM, maybe 256. Are you talking US dollars? If so, Pretty sure both nVida and ATI offer cards that outperform that little FX5200. I'm not up to date on the latest and greatest prices, still quite happy with my purchase from a couple of years ago (R9500 turned R9700)..For $400, you're probably going to get a DX9 card as well, whether you want it or not:grinthumb

I was reading in a Pc Gamer mag. and one of thier suggestions (for better gaming performance) was to turn the Grafic apature size to 1/2 your video card ram meaning, if you have lets say a 256mb card to set the apature size to 128mb in the bios? They didn't give a reason for this, can anyone tell me why I would want to do this? And would it make that big of diffrence? My first impression was that it had something to do with Virtual memory tapping, but i'm a *****...LOL can someone please enlighten me?? Oh I know there was alot of discussion on hyperthreading but would I be smart to turn it off as well when gaming?

Thx friends, Power
 

A:Apature size, does it matter that much?

Apperture size is the amount of system that you're willing to let the VGA card use for AGP texturing.

Now it's quite hard to fine a single answer on that matter. Some say it should half the size of your system memory, some say it should be equal to or half the VGA memory, some say Saturn needs to be aligned with Jupiter for it to work, etc.

If your VGA card has a lot of onboard Ram, you're not likely to be very affected by AGP apperture. Set it to something not too small, & it should not be more then half your system memory, so if you have 512 mb of Ram, set it to 256 max ( I believe the max setting for AGP apperture is 256 mb anyways ).

My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?

Hi, recently downloaded Yahoo Messenger and the messages I try to send will not show up, I can also not see other people's messages.
I've tried all of the solutions I have found online including playing with the Regedit and typing this in on command prompt.
regsvr32 jscript.dll then press enter

None of this seems to be working so please can someone help me.

A:Yahoo messenger not working

I certainly understand the issue. These steps might help you fixing it. This is an issue that is cropping up more and more.

If just a new problem try exiting Yahoo Messenger and then relaunching it. Even try rebooting your computer. If both those fail to solve your problem then try the suggestions below.
The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger8/messenger/messenger-27.html
In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, ?regsvr32 jscript.dll? and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box ?regsvr32 vbscript.dll? and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista/7/8/8.1 temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.
If the above does not fix your problem and if you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. Here is link from Microsoft to update that: http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/...-D896-482E-A0D6-524E7E844D81&displaylang=enOr you can do an internet search for Windows Script 5.7 and choose the Microsoft link.
This version of Window Script is already included with Vista, so you would not use that link. There is also a Windows Script 5.7 released for Windows 2000 and you can find that here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...49-B40E-4CA1-A0C7-CC135EC4D2BE&displaylang=en
The newer Windows versions will have Windows Script 5.8 inbuilt. For more info on the version, please visit this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Script_Host#Version_history

The security settings on your browsers may be set too high. Let's check in IE.
1.) Open up IE
2.) Tools
3.) Internet Options
4.) Security tab
5.) Does the vertical slider bar say your security is set to "High" instead of "Medium-High" or "Medium"?

It has problems displaying the original email when I want to make a reply,

Doesn't even put it in Drafts.

Using Firefox and Win 7 (Starter on my little borrowed lap while I finish repairing my desktop) and IE and Win 7 at work - is it anything to do with that?

Is this a Yahoo mail system wide problem or is there something I can do about it?
Very frustrating to type a 15 minute reply only to have it disappear!

A:Firefox, Yahoo: How to move bookmarks folder out of another folder?

Organize favorites is for IE. For Firefox you can restore your bookmarks by clicking on Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, click Show All Bookmarks, click the Import and Backup button, click Restore, click Choose File and then navigate to and select the .json file that was moved. Firefox will place a copy of the .json file (which are your bookmarks) back to the default folder. If you want, you can select a recent backup copy from the drop down list instead of choose file. That would save you a few clicks.

After restoring your bookmarks you can delete the accidentally moved file.

Yahoo email filters are poor; they only support the model:

That other website was steelintheair I think -

Anybody know of a reliable cell phone tower search site?

Thanks!
 

A:Is there a reliable cell phone tower search site?

Every single cell tower cite is in the FCC database on the FCC web-site (www.fcc.gov), but it's not easy to find. I would try active license search for specific type of cellular communications.

When I get to the screaming part, I usually create a new user ( a "trick" I discovered when I was fiddling around with XP when it came out ). Can you try that and write back what happens ?

Apparently when logging into Yahoo once, I didn't succeed in clicking down to the password space before typing my password. Now when I go to type in my username it not only shows the correct username but also the incorrect one with my password included.

I've tried to find how to delete that one entry but can't. Also could only find how to stop showing my username at all by removing all site usernames & passwords from the memory. As my wife also uses this computer, I don't want to do that either for myself or for her.

Is there any way to delete just the one incorrect username that also contains my password?

Thanks!
 

A:How to stop Yahoo email from displaying my username on login?

I've sometimes entered at my Email login page my email address then not Tabbed to the next line and typed my password. To delete the incorrect version I start to type and the type assist brings up the selection (I have now have three two correct and one mistake). Using the down arrow I highlight the mistake then press 'Delete'
Hope this helps

If you're saying you want to use your yahoo username/password to log in to every website you go to, I think its safe to say no one here will tell you thats a good idea. Each website you go to should have a separate username/password.

Inexplicably the search index seems to have stopped. I've checked the services menu and looked at the "Windows Search (WSearch)" and for some reason the service refuses to start. Startup Type is set to Automatic but when I try to manually start it I get "Windows could not start the Windows Search service on Local Computer. Error 3: The system could not find the path specified. Also the event viewer indicates: "The Windows Search service terminated with the following error: The system cannot find the path specified."

I recently reinstalled Malware Bytes using my lifetime account and can't shake the feeling there is something related? The only thing I haven't tried is uninstalling the program and checking but I was hoping for a better strategy...

Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions?

I have composed a Word letter I wish to attach to a Yahoo email.

When attempting to attach it to the email to the intended recipient,
it tells me there is a problem and can't attach it.

When I compose a similar test email to another recipient I am able
to attach the exact same Word document with no problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I find the built in search feature in Windows 7 to be quite limiting. Is there one that supports regular expressions in file names or at least doesn't always search only the beginning of words? I'm not sure of the details but something like on Windows if I search 123 the file x123 wont be found.
 

A:Search in Windows 7

Don't be panic, there is always a solution.

You can use the following syntax for searching: ?*?.
For example:
*123 -> searches for file which has the content 123
123 -> searches for files which starts with 123

Hope it helps..

You know where it says www.techspot.com. Yes it has taken it over. There is no bing addon, extension or remove program. I followed a few guides I found googling and they only work until I restart FF. My old search engine was Google in the address bar.

In the address bar where it says your search program. Drop down the menu there. You should be able to switch it back to Google

I'm planning installing Windows XP on a Mac running virtual box and was wondering if it makes a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit edition? If both can run fine I guess I'd go with 64 bit since it's faster.
 

A:In Virtual Box does it 32bit/64bit matter?

Whether or not you can run 64bit guests depends on whether you're CPU has the VT-x extension flag on the CPU.

If it doesn't, you will be unable to run 64bit guests, regardless of whether the host (e.g. OS X) is 64bit or not.

I would recommend you stick to 32 bit, you really don't need the extra performance, nor will you see it when running an OS virtually as a guest within a host OS.

Seems that just started with a fairly recent Yahoo update.

Don't like it, would prefer the bullets & thumbnails don't auto scroll so I can look at them
for awhile without them scrolling out of view, then be able to scroll at the pace I want.

Anyway to eliminate that auto scrolling?

And, BTW, how in the heck can I shut off that lame "Ian" cartoon thing on the right side
of the Yahoo email page? Totally annoying.

XP Home sp3, latest Firefox, Yahoo, using "New Yahoo email"

to forward that, the attachment won't be included in the forwarded email.

I can't find anything in Yahoo email menus, or it's Help section, about this other
than it says that attachments will be automatically forwarded.

I don't know if it's Yahoo email or the new version of FF that's causing the
problem.

Getting aggravating and frustrating to have to download the attachment(s),
then reattach with the forwarded email.

Thanks for any help!
