  1. shockersh's post in Junk filter in Outlook 2010 not working? was marked as the answer   
    This is where I would look:
    Click Home Tab -> Junk Icon Dropdown, Junk Email Options, No Automatic Filtering
    Since that is not working for you I would recommend editing the registry and nuking it there. Here is the key:

    Outlook 2007: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\office\12.0\outlook Outlook 2010: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\office\14.0\outlook (<--- Create if path doesn't exist) Add the Key: dWord (32bit Value): DisableAntiSpam Value: 1 (Hex) --- 1 Disables JunkMail and 0 Enables it.
    On my PC, I didn't have the 14.0\outlook\ path in my registry so I had to create it using New: Key then I typed it in.
    After I did this the Junk button is grayed out on the HOME tab so I "assume" that should do the trick for you.
  2. shockersh's post in What computer speakers should I buy? was marked as the answer   
    The Eagle Tech speakers are cheap and lame. Don't buy those.
    JBL Creature III is great. Got those for work and I love them.
  3. shockersh's post in How To install software with no cd/dvd rom? was marked as the answer   
    You have a few options.
    What I would do is use an app like IMGBURN and convert the DVD into an ISO file. Then copy the file to your sons computer using a thumbdrive or a HomeGroup share. From there he can install Magic Disk, Mount the ISO as a virtual CD and install the app. no problems.
    If you search groovypost (www.groovypost.com) they should have an article there that talks about turning a DVD into an ISO file and installing a virtual CD ROM. I think VirtualDrive is still free.
    Another option would be to just share the DVD drive using basic sharing then have your son connect to it and install it from there -- running setup.exe
    Hope that helps...... A bit techy I know but I bet you can figure it out!
  4. shockersh's post in Cannot reach the internet on my university network. Help! was marked as the answer   
    Seeing that you posted this tells me you find a PC with network access so that's cool. Here's a few ideas.
    On the University network, disable and re-enable your network adapter. After that, try to goto a command window and use the command -- ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew
    That should release the IP from the school and get a new one.
    With the new IP address, try to get to the internet. Still not working? Then go back to the command window and type:
    ipconfig /all
    This will list for you the IP address you were assigned and the DNS and Gateway. Try to PING your gateway. Does it work? Try to ping your DNS servers.
    If you can ping everything then it's probably the IT guys at the school who are blocking you at the gateway. Will need to wait for them....
  5. shockersh's post in How To Transfer Pictures from an Android Phone to a MAC? was marked as the answer   
    I don't own an Android but on my iPhone I just it into my PC or MAC with a USB cable and it comes up and shows me the internal memory.
    Have you tried that?
  6. shockersh's post in microsoft outlook missing mails fro send items from PST was marked as the answer   
    When he sends new emails, do they go into his sent items? Sounds like the user deleted the sent items.
    It is possible to recover deleted emails from a PST folder. YOu need to corrupt it then recover it. Here - Read this article: http://www.groovypost.com/forum/microsoft-office/how-to-corupt-an-outlook-pst-file-to-recover-delete-email-t95682.html
    It's not simple so you should do it for your customer.
  7. shockersh's post in Opting out of Groovypost was marked as the answer   
    For me anyway -- every time you get an email from the answers.groovypost.com site -- at the bottom of the emails is an option to unsubscribe from the emails.
    You can also Click on your own username at the top right and from there click User Tools, Email Notification Settings.
    That should do it.
  8. shockersh's post in what is emailscan.exe ? Is it harmful ?? was marked as the answer   
    I've done a bunch of google searches and all I can find is THIS IS A VIRUS!
    Do you have any AV running? Windows Security Essentials is free. Download it and scan your box. That is a trojan.
  9. shockersh's post in Have I downloaded the right CCleaner on my mac? was marked as the answer   
    I don't have a MAC anymore so I can't play with it for you. That said, there is only 1 version available on the site for the MAC and it's in BETA so my guess is the features are not going to be as robust as the Windows Version.
    Very cool however. I didn't know they had a MAC version out so this is really cool.
