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.)

Hi I've read a post on here previously about windows live not 'sticking' as the default email for windows 7 but the link to the windows advice area won't work anymore! I need to change the default email from outlook to windows live in order to use this but it won't stick as it, I click on it and it says changing to default but then it doesn't and each time I try it says the same thing and reverts back to the other version- desperate to sort this ASAP as the other program is relying on this happening! Thanks so much
 

A:Windows live won't stick as default email

If you are not using Outlook, then try un-installing it.

Have you tried setting Firefox to your default browser via the start menu option?

Start > Set program access and defaults > Microsoft Windows

Maybe that?

I have read numerous posts on this and none have worked for me. I tried downloading the program registering hotmail as default from winhelponline but it says it only works for Vista. I tried to set it as a default program in Windows 7, but it was not listed as an option. So I am stuck. Can this be done and if so, please advise. Thank you in advance for your help.

I am, and will be, using my sister's computer for a month until My new place is ready to live in and I can get my rigs setup.

The problem is that she has AOL (YUK, CHOKE and BLOAT) on her computer. I've installed Windows Live Mail for my emails. When I click on the link in the email, it opens up in AOL!

How do I get my email links to open up in IE 11 in stead of AOL?

A:Windows Live email links open in AOL instead of IE 11

You would need to change what ever program default that protocol is using( I imagine your opening http links correct?) to IE 11. Open this in in a explorer window. Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations then find the associated one you need and set it to IE 11. It will change her defaults though, if your using it for that long maybe you should make a new user account since then you can make whatever defaults you want and it should not affect her account. You can always remove your account when you leave.

Hi
I have been using windows live mail for a few years and have never had a problem opening emails and the attachments that have been sent by me from my office to my home pc.
Now when I try to open just my emails with the attachments, the email opens but the attachment while shown as a paperclip does not show a word or pf but just a string of text. All my other emails with attachments open. It?s as if my email address has been blocked. The strange thing is that I have another email account on the same pc and if I send an email to them the attachment opens any ideas!!!!

I need help. I suddenly cannot open a pdf attachment from my windows live email. How do I fix it? I click on the attachment and a window opens asking if I want to open. I click yes, then a box pops up with a red X saying "This file does not have a program associated with it for preforming this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Defaults programs control panel." I did go into the defaults control panel and there was a pdf file associated with it ...I think. Also a about a week ago, I could not send attachments with my windows live...it also asked me to set up an association in the defaults program. I did that and now I can send. Hmmm. How did things get re-set? Please help. Thanks!

I have been using WL email for the last couple of years, with no problems, but for the last couple of weeks, although the program opens quickly enough, and the messages are shown quickly enough, it takes a long time (20 seconds?) for the messages themselves to open. Before, they would open almost immediately. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Btw, I've performed complete and extensive scans of my computer with both Windows Security Essentials and with Malwarebytes Anti-malware programs and nothing has shown up. I appreciate any and all help offered.

A:windows live email, messages very slow to open

Hi greyspirit35,

There may be many reasons for the slackness in 'Windows Live Mail'. You may try the following steps; are likely to help:
1. Try keeping the 'Hardware & Software' in good shape: Optimize Windows 7

2. Try repairing 'Windows Live Mail':
- Click Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features > Windows Live Essentials 2011 > Right click it and click Uninstall/Change > Click 'Repair all Windows Live programs' > Allow the process to finish > Check performance after restarting the system

3. You may also check for any pending updates (Windows Live related). Also check the 'Windows Update History' to see if any 'related updates' failed to install: Windows Update - View Update History Details

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

Hi there.
In our company a user with a Win8 OS can open PDF files directly from a folder on a FTP server while a user with Win7 OS can not. The Win7 computer tries to open them always in Internet Explorer no matter what I do.

I had to install Webdrive, to fix this problem. But, this software is a demo with 20 days trial period.

The Win8 computer is manually installed from scratch while the Win7 is deployed using SCCM with a custom image. The GPO is the same for both of them as far as I know.

My questions is: Does Win7 has difficulties with opening PDF files directly from FTP server or is Win8 built a bit different on that area? Anyone knows this?

Grateful for any help.

Make sure you have set FF as your DEFAULT browser.
Otherwise, check the parameters/setup of that Yahoo utility. It may not be FF-compatible and go to IE, regardless.
As an alternative, start FF when your PC boots, and leave it open for the duration, then use the FF-extension.

Although I thought I had set PowerPointViewer.exe to be my default viewer for PowerPoint material, it isn't working when I try to open and run a PP attachment within Thunderbird 2 (running Vista 64). Specifically, the dropdown menu that appears when I double-click a PP attachment, still asks me what I want to open it with and suggests that I save to file. Furthermore, even after I browse to PPV.exe, the Do this automatically... box remains greyed out. Nonetheless, the attachment does open after I browse to PPV.exe. Can you help me have the dropdown always open PP with PPV.exe? BTW, now that I think about it, could it be that this is a safety procedure...saving as a file?

Hi

Your default emai folder is your PST file and is usually located in the following path (change my name for yours)

C:\Documents and Settings\ididmyc600\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

Its possible that you dont have the rights to the folder or the drive.or similar.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows Live Mail

I received an email with a .PPS attachment. When I try to open the attachment, I get the message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action..."

However, if I save the attachment to my hard drive and double-click on it, PowerPoint Viewer 2007 launches and I can watch the slide show. Also, I checked in Control Panel and saw that the file association for .PPS is PowerPoint Viewer. So the problem appears to be in Windows Live Mail.

This has been going on for sometime, through the past two updates, and is probably related to another issue (see below). The immediate problem is that when I click on a link in an Outlook message without Firefox open, Firefox opens but only to my home page. I have to return to the link and click it again.

The related (I imagine) problem, has been that when I installed a new version of FF, using an admin account in W-XP Pro, it would not open properly in from the user accounts. Each attempt would bring up a message saying to check to see if Ff was already running. Closing this box would then allow FF to start, though with the problem cited above. I finally fixed this "already running" problem, but the other remains.

I've tried going through every default program setting, settings in both Thunderbird and MailWasher Pro, but can't figure out how to change it back. This is probably something so easy a child could do it, but unfortunately this blonde can't work it out! Does anyone know how I change this back to how I had it please?

Have you checked in Firefox:

Check the box under System Defaults
Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup
Click the Check Now button, see if it says it's already the default browser or not.
If not, it will ask if you want to make it the default, click Yes

I can open an email and open an attachment on that email.

I can look on my harddrive and find the same email text file easily enough on my harddrive, and open that text file using notepad.

But I cannot find where the attachment(s) is stored on the harddrive? I've looked everywhere.

The reason is that I want to write a program that will archive windows live emails - and their attachments.

Thanks

I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/969165

.....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.

Thanks!

A:Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

I have been having the same trouble, which was just noticed...
Windows Live Mail does not search "contents" of messages anymore... just searches names and message subject line.
Hope to find an answer as I hate to switch to another mail client, but I absolutly need the search functionality.

I have an email I get on a regular basis that I can see who it's from and the subject line but the body of the email is blank. I have problems with it in WLM but I can view it just fine in web mail and from my iPhone. Not sure if it's an issue on the end of the person who's sending it or an issue with WLM but since I can view it completely in web mail and on my iPhone I would think it's something with WLM. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

A:Body of email not showing in one particular email in Windows Live Mail

Hi, I finally was able to talk with someone from the place that was sending the email in question I was having issues with. They found out their emails are not compatible with WLM but are working on a resolution. I'm not sure what kind of email service they're using but it's not like WLM is some obscure mail client. Anyway, I'm marking this as solved even though I've received a few emails from them since and still having the issue of nothing in the body of the message. Now that they've figured out what the issue is I hope they fix it soon.

Set up windows 7 with microsft live email. emails com in and go out ok. emails with attachemtns inbound are ok. when I send an email out with a photo ( have not triesd other attachements) it splits it up into 20 to 30 emails with jiberish and no photo and get an error notification. i have outlook on this as well and it works fine in bound and out bound. I have used the same settings. again this is only when there is a photo attached when I see this problem. Anyone have any suggestions?

A:windows live email splitting up email w/ attachement

Just a guess. But, I think it is your ISP. Somtimes they limit what cant be sent out with POP, to stop spam. For your information there are two ways to send a photo; as an attachment and as part of the email. You may want to look into that.

I've read information regarding the steps to import email from Outlook Express (XP) into Windows Live Mail (Vista), but, my question pertains to how that works when we already have quite a bit of email in the Windows Live Mail folders. I had to temporarily swap out systems to the old XP computer while checking into a problem with the Vista system and accumulated quite a bit of new email into Outlook Express that now needs to be moved into the Windows Live Mail folders to bring that back up-to-date. Will that just be added to what is already there or will it overlay anything? Just need to know how that process will impact current contents of the email folders in the Vista PC.

Thanks.

A:FireFox-Hyperlinks to emails do not open a blank email...

Hi Key2kua, welcome to TSF

I'm not sure about the FF3 problem, I'm still using FF2. To fix the registry tweak that you applied, open Windows Explorer and Notepad, then drag the mailto.reg file into Notepad to see its contents. Go to Start > Run > regedit and navigate to the locations listed in Notepad. Remove them and reboot to complete.

Note: You should always make a backup of the registry in regedit (File > Export) before making any changes.

I'm sure you already know this, but Incredimail is not recommended. Even the full paid-for version lacks the security of other free email clients. As you're already using Firefox, how about switching your email to the much safer Thunderbird? It has more features and works perfectly with Firefox for POP, IMAP, Gmail, web-mail, etc.

After installing Firefox I was unable to reset IE6 back to being the default browser even after checking the "check if default browser" check-box. I was able to reset it after using the "Reset Web Settings" button in Internet Options > Programs.
What is stopping IE from performing the check? Can this be solved through a registry setting change or policy edit?
Any Possibilities?

Hello guys,

I wanted to open an excel file directly from IE9, but when I double click the excel file in the browser, it opens right in IE instead of Excel program. How do I make the file use Excel program to open rather than open in IE itself? I am using Windows 7 and Office 2010. I tried the Microsoft registry fix but still it doesn't work. And the folder options in Windows 7 doesn't have the "Advanced" option.

When I click on a web-link in my Thunderbird email, it will open in my current Firefox window (let's say I have Techspot on screen).
Where can I change T'bird (or Firefox) settings, so that it opens in EITHER a new Firefox session (if not open), OR in a new tab (if open).

This only started happening since FF 1.0.4

On the same note, while creating a new thread, or answering a post in 'Advanced Mode', the cursor in the message-window is extremely nervous, probably caused by the 'jumping' smilies. True or false?
This is not the case while answering posts in regular mode.

Your problem may lie within the the path of the icon on your desktop. Try this

1. Open Explorer Start>Explorer
2. Find the Full name of your file (for ex. C:/MyDocuments/fred.doc)
3. Copy this name
4. Now find the icon and right click and select Properties
5. Find the target and paste you target over that

Fix2
You may have minimized/closed your file in a way that it has been minimized so try to look around you taskbar for the excel and right click select restore.

Lastly, you may just have to do it the hard way or try creating shortcuts via Rightclick on desktop>new>shortcut

Hi,

I am using Access 2003 and I have 2 forms, called F1 and F2.

When I click on a button in F1, it successfully passed a value to F2, using Forms!F2.text2=Forms!F1.text1.

Now, if I were to call Form2 directly without going through Form1, it'll return me a error. How can I work around this? Cos' I need to give the user an option of opening form2 directly and indirectly.

Thx!

A:How can I change default location of Windows Live Mail Contacts file?

There's no easy way to change the location of WEMail contacts. Any registry hacks for any Windows application only makes your system less stable. I don't know of any registry tricks for this.

A better way is to move your entire user profile to a sperate partition on the root drive.

User Profile - Change Default Location - Method One

This is preferred over changing individual standard folders location in the folder properties (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos) and changing default locations inside an application (Msg Store location).

I set up my system that way, it's much cleaner and a reinstall doesn't affect that User profile partition (unless you do a factory reset or tell the install to use the entire drive).

You should use the root drive so that it is always available when you boot the system.

I wasn't aware that I had used an email to get the Windows 8 started but I guess I did. I closed that account and am not able to access it. However, if I want to get into the store, etc. It tells me to log in with that email address. It will not let me change the address in the login screen. How to do I change in on the computer? Where is that setting?

A:Change Windows 8 default Email

It has to be a Microsoft account. It merges in with your Skydrive account. Deleting the account is a very bad idea, because windows 8 almost exclusively runs from that account. So if that account no longer exists, and your computer is set up to connect to it, well that becomes a huge problem, because there is constant interplay between your Windows 8 and your Microsoft/Skydrive account when you are online.

You can switch to a Local Account, and from there you can set up a new Microsoft account. Or, you can leave it a Local account and this will be for the whole computer, and you can use another Microsoft account for your Store Account. Deleting a Microsoft account for any reason, is just not good, especially now, because they will all now be "Outlook.com" accounts. Mine is still linked to my original email address because I set it up almost 20 years ago.

To change to a local user, go to PC SETTINGS and choose Local Account

In the future your files should open with the right program without any additional efftort.

how do I get a file to open directly to desktop not taskbar?

I suppose opening all files in the task bar is someone's ideas of organization but I get really annoyed at having to chase all over with my clicker trying to open a file shortcut. It is not pinned to the taskbar.

A:how to get a file to open directly to desktop not taskbar

Files don't open to the Taskbar. An icon is placed there when a file is opened but the file itself should open on the Desktop.

If you are saying when you open a file/program, it opens minimized to the Taskbar that can be fixed.

You can force a program to run in minimized, maximized state pr normal.



1. Right-click the program's shortcut and then click Properties.
2. This will open the Properties window with the Shortcut tab already selected. Click the drop-down menu next to Run and choose Maximized or Normal.

3. Click OK.
You will have to repeat this for each program that opens minimized as I don't know of any way to make this change globally.

Hi -

I have an issue with Spell Check in Windows Live on Windows 7 Home Edition. It's an odd problem, as it occurs only about 20% of the time, but often enough to be annoying!

When I click on Spell Check, nothing happens. Then I click "send" to send the e-mail. I get this message: "The spell check on this document was halted. Do you want to send anyway." Only one problem: I never halted the spell check! Very annoying even though it happens only about 20% of the time. Nobody seems to know anything about this issue, so any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would like to make a folder on the root directory of my hard drive and save them to that so this does not happen again.

Lets try to restore the past, before we worry about the future. Go to backup and restore, in search by staart menu. Then go back to a point prior to your loss, you will be restored and whole again. Either way let us know and we will go to the next step.

Ok, I've spent way too much time trying to figure this out on my own.  I need help - and a 12-step program won't cut it.  Here's the story as concisely as I can explain it:
 
I use Sage 50 (Simply Accounting) for bookkeeping.  I need to be able to email invoices from Sage.  Sage tells me I need a MAPI compatible email program.  So I created an Outlook account cuz Outlook's like the Queen of MAPI stuff.  I have sent about 9000 test emails from the accounting program and not one of 'em has ended up in my Rogers.com email account.  Don't know where the emails went cuz neither Sage nor Rogers is talking.  Can somebody please tell me how the high holy hell I get this accomplished?

A:Set default for an Outlook email account in Windows 8

I believe You need to have Outlook installed.
When You say I created an Outlook account do You mean within Outlook or do you mean outlook.com the online email service?

any advice would be great

thanks in advance
 

A:How do I.. Make HOTMAIL default email in windows 7?

Maybe I am not understanding your problem. Why would Windows Live Mail open unless you click on it or you have it in your Start folder?. If you have your Hot Mail account in Windows Live Mail it can be deleted without affecting your account on line.

So I recently installed Windows 8 and Office 2007 (including Excel 2007). I then decided to participate in the Office 2013 trial, so I downloaded and installed that on top of everything. It worked correctly, and I could open files normally. Then I deleted Office 2007 in an effort to save space, and now I'm encountering problems.

Basically, every time I try to open an Excel file, Windows 8 gives me the "How do you want to open this file?" dialogue. I check "Use this app for all .xls(x) files" and click "Keep using Microsoft Excel" and the dialogue closes but the file doesn't open.

The only way I can get excel files to open now is by going to the Metro menu and opening Excel 2013, then opening the file from there.

Is there a way to fix this issue without resorting to the workaround method?

Thanks in advance!

A:A cmd to open directly here:ComputerManager/LocalUser and Groups/Users

Sorry, not possible. Not unless you're willing to use a gigantic command that presses keys for you.


Code:
@(echo Set A = CreateObject^("WScript.Shell"^)&echo A.Run^("lusrmgr.msc"^)&echo WScript.Sleep 500&echo A.AppActivate^("lusrmgr"^)&echo A.SendKeys^("{TAB}"^)&echo A.SendKeys^("{ENTER}"^))>"%TEMP%\tmp-369455_.vbs"&WScript "%TEMP%\tmp-369455_.vbs"&timeout 1 >NUL&del "%TEMP%\tmp-369455_.vbs" /q

Good day every1,
I have given up several replaceable programs because of this problem...

as already stated in the title:
I want my programs to open ON the icon in the taskbar... for some programs it works, for others strangely it doesn't...

Meaning I click on the icon, and instead of opening itself where the icon is located it opens a new window right next to it....

as you can see sony vegas opened normally ON the icon of it, but Pale Moon opened next to it, this is VERY annoying-.-

A:How do I make programs open directly on the icon in the taskbar?

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Try this, after it opens the one next to it right click on it and pin it to the taskbar then unpin the 1st one.

I am having a problem opening a file attachment with Outlook Express 6. I can save the attachement to the hard drive and open it, but when I try and open it directly from Outlook express, it says " the file cannot be found C:\Documents
and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\....\name.xls"

Other attachments is ok. Please advise.

A:Can't Open Excel Attachment Directly From Outlook Express.

While I do not have an answer for you why you cannot open directly, think on the bright side: You have to drag it out someplace first, then you can SCAN IT WITH ANTIVRUS, and finally open it. Safer this way!

Office files MAY contain malware behind any sheet, document and within macros.

 Msn.com gives me an error message and locks up whenever I open it directly.      If I go Google first and the open msn.com, I don't have a problem.  How do we fix msn.com, so it can be opened directly from the desktop icon?.

1. For a while the computer has become very slow, to open a file takes two minutes and to print a page takes five minutes.

2. Unable to open excel file directly, a blank page comes up, have to go to FILE and then select particular file to open.

I have been told to reload M/S programme to resolve this problem. Is it correct?

In Live Mail I work with up to 3 different languages.
I understand that the spelling check detects which laguage is used and automatically starts checking accordingly.
Some image of the spelling check menu I have seen on the net did show a "current laguage" button in the spelling check menu.
However in the menu on my computer ( Dutch version) this button is not there.
I appreciate suggestions

I have a box (in WLM 2009) that can be checked called "check spelling in current input language". Is that the one? I'm not sure what it does since my spelling is checked even if that box is unchecked but maybe it refers to the case where multiple languages are installed.
