  1. Don't know, but if nothing better comes up, one workaround would be to create the text box the way you like it, select it, and add it to AutoText, saved as say, 'TextBox'. You could create different customized boxes and store them there. I have a shortcut button on my Toolbar for AutoText.
  2. Just for your info ... Windows Defender doesn't come with a System Tray icon. This is by design. The word is that this option will be included in a later build. Regarding uninstalling: it should show in Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs as 'Windows Defender'. Regards
  3. Are you accessing Folder Options from within Control Panel? If so, try it from withing My Computer or Explorer, by selecting a particular folder and then going to Tools => Folder Options.

  5. Here are the entries from my system: Copy the text below between the dotted lines, but not the dotted lines themselves. Open Notepad and paste it in. Save the result in a suitable location as batfile.reg - making sure that the default .txt extension doesn't appear in the file name. Double-click on the saved .reg file to merge the contents.

  6. In XP-home the Security tab is only visible in Safe Mode, unless you want to download a third-party tweak such as this one: Doug Knox - show Security tab in XP-home
  7. One question and one suggestion: Do you get the activation request in Safe Mode? Try a System Restore to a point before this occurred.
  8. That's a legitimate site sponsored by your college - North East Institute of Further and Higher Education - and links to MSDN. Lots of free software if you have been given a username and password.
  9. Hi, If some items may still show up in the 'Open With' listings, these may be stored in the KEY_CLASSES_ROOT registry key. These settings affect all users. You can remove the entries by navigating to the particular filetype's key setting: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xxx\OpenWithList where xxx is the file extension. ------------------------------------------------------------ Even if this is edited, Windows may still show some default 'Open With' items. Depending on the file type, the 'Open With' listing is produced from the sub-keys under this key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\<filetype>\ But ... you probably don't want to mess with these.
  10. Computer Browser service set to Started and Automatic
  11. Hi, Try this: Go to Start => Run and type in regedit and click on OK Open the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT hive Scroll down to Drive (a lot of scrolling) Expand this key by clicking the + sign Highlight the Shell key In the right-hand pane is a string called Default If this string has a data value of "find", highlight this string, right-click and select Modify In place of the Value 'find', type in none and click the OK button Exit the Registry Editor.
  12. Here are some instructions you may find helpful: WeetHet USB Boot setup
  13. Hi, This solution may be worth a try: Ramesh - Start menu => Programs empty
  14. Especially in you get a "No Network available" error, the three most common causes of this condition that I know of are: 1. Disable Windows Internet Connection Firewall in Control Panel. 2. Disable the firewall in your computer (if you're running one) to isolate this as a possible cause (you have to allow traffic to/from the LAN addresses in your network). 3. Go to Start => Run and type in services.msc and check that the Computer Browser service is set to Automatic and Started. Luck!
  15. If it won't uninstall automatically with Add/Remove Programs, you can try uninstalling manually. Here are the instructions: Uninstall Google Desktop Search manually
  16. In Internet Explorer: Tools => Internet Options => Connections tab = check the 'Never dial a connection' radio button.
  17. Hi, Not sure I'm quite getting it, but as you know, Identities are just shortcuts to individual Accounts, so that any problem will be within the Accounts themselves and not the Identity function. After you have set up the two Identities you want, you can delete the default Main Identity. So, if you've done this and are still getting malfunctions, I would be checking the entries in each account in Tools => Accounts => Mail tab => Properties. Log into each Identity in turn to check each separate Account entries. I'm assuming that each user has a distinct e-mail address, although from the same ISP provider. Luck!
  18. Sorry for not getting back sooner. Open the Registry Editor by going to Start => Run and typing in regedit Navigate to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DocFolderPaths In the right-hand pane, the path to your own profile's documents folder should be listed there (along with the path to the Administrator account - don't touch this one!). Is it listed correctly? In the right-hand pane is your username listed? Is the path to your Documents folder correct? If not, and you want to change it, first backup the key by going to File => Export and export the key (click the 'Selected branch' radio button) to a good location giving it a name like "Documents path.reg". This is in case you make a goof. Double-clicking on this saved .reg file will restore the original entry. Then, right-click on the incorrect Name and click on Modify. Change the Value name and/or the Value data as necessary to match your username and the path to your Documents folder. Double-check that you have the path typed in correctly.
  19. Just to check that this isn't something related to your login: Go to Start => Run and type in cmd In the Command window that opens, type in SET Check the paths indicated for the following entries, that they point to your profile (your username): APPDATA HOMEPATH USERNAME USERPROFILE
  20. Hi, I got the line to run in Win98SE by removing the space before the \\srv01 ... i.e. the space after /nfo
  21. Hi, Suggest you download, install and run this freeware utility that will show you the size of every directory and folder on your system. Look for the one that's eating up all the space: TreeSize
  22. Hi, Try this: If you have My Documents showing on your desktop, right-click on it, click Properties, click the Move button, and change the location. If you don't have My Documents showing, add it by right-clicking anywhere on the desktop => Properties => Desktop tab => Customize Desktop button => check the My Documents box. You can delete the My Documents shortcut off the desktop if you don't want/need it.
