  1. Try downloading Winrar from http://www.rarlab.com.
  2. It's really hard to say. I would need to know more about the file. Did you create it from scratch or someone else? If someone else created it then I would talk to that person. If you created it then you should be able to answer these questions. Is the spreadsheet linked to other spreadsheets either by formulas or VBA? If the first answer is yes, then has any of those spreadsheets been moved, deleted, or renamed? If they have then the errors are caused because it can't find the needed files to complete its calculations or inputs. If the answers to the previous questions are both no, then has t
  3. I would need to know more information. Did you create this file or did you get it from someone else? If you got it from someone else it was probably created in a newer version and you might not be able to view it. There are compatibility tools that you can try to download from Microsoft's website, but it still might not work. If you created it and you absolutely know that it was created in 2003 then try to do a repair on office. In the link below, follow the section that tells you how to do a repair. One thing it doesn't tell you is to first close out of all applications and then open an off
  4. By the way, any time you go to a new computer, you will need to make all the changes I suggested. Each person will also need to make it. So even if you share computers, when a person uses the same computer they will need to make these changes again. Although, once you make the changes you don't have to make them again on that particular computer.
  5. Yes, that is the issue with older versions of Outlook. I don't think this was fixed until Outlook 2010, I am fairly certain it will not work in 2007. Where you added the exchange server, shows your email address and where you unchecked the cached mode, right before you double click on the account you should have a listing for each mailbox here. If you only have one listed here, then you added it the old way by adding the new/second account under your own account. If you can add more than one account, there should be a "New" button, like I have 4 email accounts under mine. You will also need to
  6. Honestly, I don’t know much about repeaters, I know they do have them. I also have a Netgear router. In the advanced options for the Netgear there are options to setup a repeater. What this should be able to do is you can get another WIFI router (I think), unless you just need an access point. But you can place this access point in another part of the house and it will duplicate the signal being sent to and from your router, thus giving you twice the distance than what you had before. Another option, if possible, would be to run a LAN cable from the Internet connection (modem) and place your
  7. It might be how you added the multiple accounts. It could also be due to an option you have selected. Check to make sure you don’t have the option “Use Cached Exchange Mode” checked. I am not sure where it is under Outlook 2007 as I am using 2010, but it should be similar. In 2010 under the File menu, click on Account Settings, and select Account Settings from the dropdown. This is the same place you go to add a new email account within Outlook. Where it lists your email addresses, double click on it and then remove the checkmark from the “Use Cached Exchange Mode”. You will need to do this fo
  8. The best option would probably be to get a Roku 3 box. This is the newer out of the Roku boxes and my friend said the remote control has a plug in it for a headphone set, exactly like what you are asking for. Another option, which would be a lot more expensive is to get a audio video receiver that supports blue tooth headphone sets. Then you will also need to buy a head phone set that supports blue tooth. I think there is an option that will allow you to plug in a blue tooth headset directly into your TV, depending on your TV's features, if not you might be able to get a dongle that will pai
  9. If everything looks good from that perspective then read what I posted here:http://answers.groovypost.com/questions/2789/reestablishing-wi-fi-connection The question for that post was in regards to a laptop and a WIFI connection, which I am guessing you are using a wired desktop. If that is the case then just ignore the part about looking for a WIFI switch on your computer, but the rest of the process will be the same.
  10. Well, torrents download, or anything downloaded off the Internet could cause issues. People can plant viruses in anything that you download, even if antivirus doesn't detect it. The good programmers can even make the virus destroy your hardware. Since these are illegal software that you have, Microsoft could be messing with you, as you put it, but unlikely if your software is registered. You can tell if it is registered by holding down the Windows button on the keyboard and then pressing the Pause Break button. A window will open and at the bottom it will say something about Windows being acti
  11. First off, take it from me, someone who also writes a lot. When you post questions this long and have a tendency to babble on, people stop reading. I am saying this because I sometimes have the same problem. With that said, I skimmed trough your question. From what I gathered I had the same issue at one point, other than I was unable to connect to the internet at all. All my virus software I had, which was 3, didn’t detect anything. What I did was roll my computer back to a previous date of when it was working. Windows 8.1 automatically has restore points that you can revert to when you run i
  12. If you really don’t plan on using the printer for a while the best thing you can do is take the ink cartridges out of it. The problem with printers, as I am sure you know, is that the ink will harden on the printer’s headers. The headers are where the ink comes out of. Once that happens then it is junk. The ink also will dry up within the cartridge itself if not used enough. The good thing about HP printers, which is what I have as well, is that the headers are on the ink cartridges themselves, so when they dry up you can just replace the ink cartridges and by doing so you also replace the he
  13. I'm not sure how the 4 bay one works that you are questioning, but the individual one is what I have. This takes up a bay in the computer, so I have 2 DVD drives and then 3 of these removable bays in the front of my computer. These hook up to the board using SATA connectors, just like you would hook up any other hard drive. Then the hard drive slides in and out, it automatically lines up with the removable bay connectors that are inside and there is nothing further you have to do. They also have ATA removable ones, but I doubt you are using anything that old. As far as a Mac goes, I don't see
  14. Have you thought about installing removable hard drives in your computer? I have that. Once the computer is shut down it takes literally a second to pop the drives out. NAS devices are unreliable. I work for a large corporation and they have lots off issues, not the best solution if you ask me, plus a NAS box isn't easy to move/hide like what you are trying to do, unless you pop the drives out as well. Anyway, I use removable drives at home and it works great. Here is what I am talking about, depending on what you get you can either get a tray or no tray. The tray would protect the drive when
  15. Hi Simon, interesting. I didn't know they made them this small. At work we have large ones, like the size of a walk in closet. I can't imagine what those cost. But yeah, like you said, it wouldn't be very cost effective if I got this. Although something like this is what I was looking for, I just didn't think it would be this expensive. I guess the best bet would be to get something like what APC suggested. I was hoping to get away from another battery operated device, where I had to replace another battery, but replacing the battery many times wouldn't come to the price of this item. The batt
