  1. My progress has come upon some issue, is this of any significance and what's to be done to fix it?
  2. thanks for the guide! Will there be any forthcoming options to remove garbage like media center and built in games, anything useless to down size the hdd footprint of the eventual install?
  3. I just recently got my grandmother a computer and while none of us are rich I am trying to find open source or cheap applications for XP to make it more accessible and user friendly with as little hassle as possible for mundane tasks like surfing the web and copying files from a digital camera to her old (but new for her) computer. So: Which is the best web browser for a person with poor eye-sight? I am very familiar with Firefox but not sure if Firefox has better add-ons than for example Opera or what add-ons to even look for if they exist. Is there a simplistic replacement for the traditional menu and desktop style that pretty much all computers use, like for example the old manager for Mac OS “At Ease” which is probably ten years old now but something along those lines would be ideal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/At_Ease If you plan on suggesting any screen reader please note that it should support Swedish as her English is not the best, not that shes clueless but still, utilities to make the computer experience less overwhelming and cluttered would be nice. I do love the magnifying glass in Windows 7 which even I use to see fine print on my monitor from way over the room and I know vista’s can be adjusted to act the same but the one in XP is horrible. I guess I could try installing win7 for her but Vista is out of the question, that would be like a brick. I know pretty much nothing of Linux so if you’re going to suggest anything like that please, be gentle with the technical stuff, but windows I can hack around with pretty well. Comp specs: 768megs of ram , 1.7GHz Athlon with a small HDD, too small for Vista without heavy Vlite modifications… Right now it’s XP sp3 and even the 120DPI and smaller screen resolution doesn’t help her much, pretty bad eye-sight but she did see with like 300-400% magnifying resolution on a 15” monitor on a normal website with normal font size. Please! Help an old lady out by helping me.
  4. USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED is all I've ever got despite reinstalling windows, upgrading BIOS, testing several forceware and nforce drivers on my stationary computer, yet just now i figured it had to be the pda phone that was faulty, a HTC tytn with windows mobile 6 so i connected my pda tp the laptop running the same type of vista as my stationary does. I am such a proud owner so i posted a few screenshots from my laptop, notice how exactly everything works just like it's supposed to and it installs it quickly and even identifies the pda icon correctly. I was blown away by how Vista occasionally can work and how good it feels. The question is what's wrong with my laptop since there's nothing wrong with the phone itself. Since i bought the Asus P5N-T Deluxe my pda hasn't worked with the computer, I get errors like, can't install windows mobile network driver (or something similar), usb device not recognized and mostly it doesn't react at all when i connect the pda, tho it still charges over the usb cable in either case. Should i just buy a new mainboard? Is there anything i can try? I have had several issues with it making me pretty sick and tired of it.
  5. Hey i have a few questions here i hope i might get some help with and it's about bluetooth and vista... I have a Microsoft laser mouse 8000 bluetooth with dongle, what stack is that using, becouse despite me having installed the intelli software and vista accepts the dongle when i pair my bluetooth handsfree with vista then vista asks for a driver for unknown bluetooth adapter... What stack does the logitech dinovo edge use? i have that too. can i connect both ms mouse and logitech keyboard just one of any of them dongles?
  6. I have a small inconvenience on my hands. I have outlook 2007 installed and set as my default e-mail client on my system but when using certain Vista functions like right-clicking on a file in explorer and choosing the "compress and e-mail" function it does use 7zip to compress it into a zip file and then opens the wrong e-mail client to send with, it pops up the wizzard for creating an account in windows mail. its the same thing when using the windows snipping tool, taking a screenshot and then choosing the programs function "send snip" as either an e-mail or an e-mail attachment. I suppose it's a question of a registry fix or something?
  7. I've been using Outlook 2007 with the latest spam filter updates via vistas win update and still i get daily crappy viagra spam with the topic VIAGRA INC and since i NEVER buy viagra i might as well if possible add a rule to auto delete any mail including the word viagra, is it possible?
  8. I see, i will check out your referred links. I know nothing about programing but thats another step in my learning so might as well be sooner rather than later,having practical use for the knowledge will help motivate, thank you.
  9. i did update the video driver which seems to have helped, its been 3 days of uptime now (record!!!) and it seems to have fixed it. do you guys have any good source of material to teach how to analyze error reports from full dumps etc?

  11. So, how do i associate .001 with 7zip to it does extract the entire series not just the .001 file. why do people pack in that type of format?
  12. I would like to make a on-screen form in livecycle, just a basic one with 2 column design and 2 columns of form fields, how do i link the last form field of column 1 to automatically let the user continue typing on to the next columns first field?
  13. Hello. I would you your help in creating an outlook 2007 e-mail template. I am experienced with xhtml and css and am fully capable of coding the design i desire but i have no idea how to make a template for outlook 2007 to use for emails. The image added with my post describes what i want the template too look like once compose new emaile based on template has been chosen. I want the subject to be "rubrik saknas" = subject missing to be stated untill one chooses to change it. And the business card based on one's personal information added in the outlook 2007 adress book added as an attached file. Next is the most enigmatic steps for me, how do i design the visual part of the template?
  14. thanks for the response, the haali codec wasn't included with the k-lite megacodec pack it seems. but installed it and sure enough there was the option you described!
