Hi... I've used Gmail with both IE9 and Chrome without any problems. Then, for no apparent reason, the Gmail I was using with Chrome lost features: No more boldfacing, underlining, italicizing, etc. Also, Settings won't open and I can't open Contacts or Tasks. Gmail still works perfectly with IE. I ...

Xiongmao...Thank you for the suggestion. I do not remember what solution solved the problem for me five years ago (I probably purchased a new laptop, :lol: ). However, you are correct that your advice may help someone else with the same problem. :D -- David/Involved

Can't a fix be made so that we can change our ozzu pw if we want to? Most other sites let you do that. To the extent that The Farmer tells me that he tested all of the hrdware thoughly, that's how safely I can assume that all hardware is okay. I'm using an OEM re-installation disk that I purchased f...

Whoops! Sorry I wasn't clear about the password. :oops: I meant the password on Ozzu. I had lost my original pw and got one of those alphanumeric thingies, which I'd like to change to something I have a chance of remembering. :) Your idea about the "XP but no program" installation certainl...

I checked with him and this is what he wrote back:

"I ran full diagnostic on all hardware. The hard drive is good. I get to store at 2.30. I ran pc doctor as well as other diagnostic utilities. The hard drive spins fine and when hooked externally is completely accessible."

Post Posted: April 30th, 2010, 6:53 am

I'm quite sure (but definitely not positive) that The Farmer checked out the hard drive. I could be wrong and will ask him when he arrives at work this afternoon.

(BTW, can you tell me how to change my password?)

Right. Take a look back at my post on 4/28 at 1:46 pm and yours at 2:41 pm. You made us aware that my laptop could only support two 1G sticks. That's why The Farmer removed the 2G stick and tried getting the system to boot up with just the 1G stick in place.

"Alas, Poor Dell Inspiron 6000. I knew it well, Don2007". :( (Apologies to Mr. Shakespeare.) I met with The Farmer today and he said he had tried booting up by first removing the 2G stick that we hoped would be outed as the culprit. No joy. He said he also (hope this makes sense) "reb...

Don..."The Farmer" has my computer and I think this is his day off (my luck!). Ozzu is such a terrific site and it's a wonder :o to me that techies (or self-annointed techie-types) who can't solve a problem for a customer or themselves don't sign up and ask for the quality help (and a much...

Post Posted: April 28th, 2010, 11:46 am

Thanks Don2007! Now that you mention it, the Farmer (LOL) upgraded my RAM. I had 2G and wanted 4G. He said I would need a 64-bit computer in order to have 4G. So, he replaced one of the 1G sticks with a 2G to make it--we thought--a total of 3G. HOWEVER, it has NEVER come up as 3G. Only 2G. (1) Was h...

Hi...A couple of months ago, when I turned on my computer (Dell Inspiron 6000, Win XP, 2G RAM), it brought up the Dell logo, but wouldn't go to Win XP. Instead, I would get a blinking cursor at the top left my screen. A Dell-authorized techie said I had a bad cluster in my hard drive, so he install...

Thanks for the reply. I'm not exactly sure how to answer the question. :? I am helping a family member who is at the opposite end of the "computer knowledge" spectrum from you, and I have no access to her computer. Her ONLY e-mail address is through Earthlink. It seems that ALL her mail is...

Hi...Someone sent me an e-mail greeting card, but since its address was not recognized, it was marked as Spam. When I open the Spam report, I get a list of emails marked that way. However, there is no way to open any of them. The only URL relating to the greeting card is an e-mail address for the gr...

I use both IE and Firefox, but Firefox has developed two major problems, perhaps related to each other: (1) No matter what URL I go to, a large rectangular area is white--i.e., nothing at all in that space. It is always in the upper left quadrant of my screen; (2) the full color and graphics do not ...

Absolutely right, Grinch2171. I tried that a short while ago and it appears to have worked perfectly (fingers crossed, LOL). It seems so rare that one of these types of programs actually DOES eliminate all the bad files it finds during a scan--without, that is, you paying for the program first.

Post Posted: July 20th, 2009, 6:43 am

Pretty much answers the question. I remain unclear as to why system settings can be restored but a program (such as "System Security" or any virus cannot be totally eliminated that way. Not important, as long as I remember that it can't.

Post Posted: July 20th, 2009, 6:33 am

Thanks. It answered my question and cleared things up for me completely. (I still don't understand how a rogue malware program like "System Security" was able to infect my computer. Could that mean that Microsoft did not update Live OneCare or that System Security was not recognized as the...

I have used RESTORE when my computer has developed a problem such as freezing, or has acted strangely in other ways. RESTORE has worked well, for the most part. But I'm not completely clear what the program reverts back to when it goes back to an earlier restore point. It says that none of my data w...

I have been using Windows Live OneCare for quite a while and have been pleased with the protection it has offered (until I got hit with the "System Security" rogue malware :( ). Microsoft says that its Defender program will protect against, and clean up, programs like that. However, I was ...

The maddening program "System Security" :twisted: somehow infiltrated my hard drive and now I cannot get rid of all of the popups warning me about all the viruses, etc., etc., that have infected my computer--and, of course, can only be remedied by purchasing the program. (Sort of like: &qu...

I have--or at least HAD--some 1,500 different contacts in my Palm Desktop address book. For no apparent reason, the lower half (alphabetically) seems to have disappeared from my computer. I did a search, but didn't find them. (I looked for *.csv). Yes, I did have my data backed up, but this happened...

You're the best! I'm going to read and re-read your instructions before I try installing and running the macro. Am I correct that: (1) this will run with XLViewer; (2) it should run with Access, and (3) it will not run with Word (even if I create a table). It's 40 minutes BEFORE midnight where you a...

Post Posted: July 5th, 2007, 5:36 am

Oh, I see you did remove parts of the addresses. Whew! Thanks! Will it be okay to send a private message?

Post Posted: July 5th, 2007, 5:34 am

Oh man, you are SO right. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Can I delete the message, or can you? I should have sent a private message, I imagine. Dumb.

Post Posted: July 4th, 2007, 8:47 pm

Alkatr0z... Thanks so much "Mate" :D I just realized that I do not have the full Excel program, only the Viewer, which will not read the .csv file format. I gotta admit that, while I'm constantly helping friends who need computer advice and help, I'm nowhere when it comes to macros, much l...

Hi...I have a file of people who have ordered through my website and would like to put them into a readable format in Word or Excel, or both. I imagine Excel will give me more options for sorting. The only solutions I have found are either commercial (i.e., pay to play) or so techie that they are be...

Very cool website you have there, Rich/RigelNet!

Thanks for your comments on my website. I appreciate them.

xigefei...Thank you for your comments.

I am not sure what you mean about "sales book". Can you clarify that for me?

Also, WHERE was the SEO technology effective?

BTW, do you live in the People's Republic of China or the Republic of China?

Hi R.T....Sorry? You should feel just the opposite (whatever positive feeling that is, LOL).

Thanks VERY much for your input. I haven't checked out your recommendations yet because I wanted to express my appreciation ASAP. David (aka Involved) :)
