About Me

  1. I have MS Office Software that I would like to install on my sons notebook, but he has no CD/DVD rom. Is there a way to install it on his computer from mine?
  2. I replaced my router and changed the SSID so its the same as my old router used. It works fine apart from its recognised as a separate network and Windows 7 puts a 2 at the end. The problem with this is my home printer is not selected automatically anymore on my home network. It defaults to my work printer at work and stays on the work printer all the time.I tried deleting the network and setting it up again but it still puts a 2 on the end. I am guessing I have to delete the old network SSID the one without a 2 then rename the new network to remove the 2 but I don’t know how to do this. Can anyone help?

  4. My Win 7 desktop will not correctly display gif files in Word 2010. The file looks normal on my XP laptop (and everyone else's computer), but on the desktop computer a gif of a math equation in Word becomes white text in maybe Signboard font on a black background, sometimes readable, usually not. The problem isn't consistent either. One equation may be weird and the next is normal. I might also note that on some documents the line spacing looks all out of whack, but it's normal on other computers. I've un-installed, re-installed, and updated my Office 10 and updated Windows 7....I am at my wits end!
  5. I have an exe file (compiled from a basic program) that is compatible with 32-bit windows operating system but not compatible with 64 bit windows-7 operating system. How do I go about convertiing it work on my windows -7 laptop computer?' Or how can I make my existing program work on windows-7? Thanks in advance for your help.
  6. OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) Whenever I return the computer from sleep I get these weird glitches in the graphical interface of all of my open Windows. It's like little blocks out of them are missing. But then when I hover the mouse over them or move the window they go back to normal. It's very random when these missing blocks appear. These glitches appear on any window I have open, even if I close and re-open an application the blocks will still affect it. The only thing that keeps these blocks from re-appearing is when I End Process on DWM.exe from Task Manager. Since DWM.exe is programmed to automatically restart after it's closed it comes back up, but the blocks don't appear until I sleep the computer again. So my thinking is that for some reason when I sleep my computer it is corrupting DWM.exe, but I have no idea why nor how to fix it. Any help is much appreciated!
  7. Question from a groovy reader: Hi Austin, I read your web page on backp/restore using M.S. backup as provided. I have this BIG doubt, though: If my Windows 7 does not boot due to failure or whatever, and I do have the backup image in a USB hard disk, how do I RESTORE the image back? Up to Windows XP I have been using Acronis, and that software can boot itself from a CD, so even one can restore to a new hard-disk. I have not bot Acronis because I read it has issues, possibly due to changes in Windows 7, so naturally I would like to use Microsoft backup, but am holding on answer to my questions. I hope you can afford some brief help just to avoid surprises. Thanks!

  11. When I clicked the install button on the website to install Office 2013 it downloaded an installer. When I run the installer it gives me an error that says: We found a problem! We're sorry, Office (32-bit) couldn't be installed because you have these 64-bit Office programs installed on your computer: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Microsoft Office 32-bit Components 2010 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office programs don't get a long, so you can only have one type installed at a time. Please try installing the 64-bit version of Office instead, or uninstall your other 64-bit Office programs and try this installation again. Here's a screenshot of it: How do I fix this? What can I do? I tried redownloading it but I couldn't install Office it just kept giving me the same window.

  14. I am facing a problem....I have only one drive on my laptop and i want to partition it and create a new one.

  16. Ray writes: "Hello Austin, I read your article concerning search engines that don’t record your address when browsing the internet. My question to you is if you are using Windows Explorer 9 browser does it send info back to Microsoft or anyone else when using one of the search engines i.e. Duck Duck Go or Startpage which would negate the whole purpose of those engines. Reason I’m asking is I don’t trust the system and don’t fully understand OS Windows 7 well enough to make the call for myself. Would you please explain? Thanks, Ray"

  21. Help - I have a new HP Windows 7 Pro 64 bit PC - trying to change user account passwords - have checked all of the security policy and user settings - all are good - when attempting to change the password - the PC chugs for a few minutes then gives me the "did not meet requirements etc" I have tried a password that meets the criteria - still doesn't work - help!
  22. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my computer. When I click on the Start Icon to search my computer for a specific item (Example: family birthday file) a complete listing of files relating to my search appears. After I select the file I am looking for only to find out it is not the correct one I attempt to return to the same list but it is no longer shown. I must retype my search item (Example: family birthday file) in the search field again to regain access to the file listings??? Is there a way to keep the original search data constant instead of having to start at step one every time to search for the same file??? This is such a waste of time. Yes I can cut and paste my original request so that I just paste each time I must continue with the same search for the correct file to show, but there must be a simpler way to save the original request until I no longer need it.Thank you for your helpKarl

  24. My computer crashed and I tried to do a clean install of Windows 7. But, my ID number does not work so now I could not register because I was using a Windows 7 Upgrade disk. I tried using an upgrade process mentioned in one article, but that did not work. Do you have a workaround? Or will I have to install Windows XP?
  25. I recently had the dreaded Windows Security Virus and it crashed my hard drive - apparently my drive was getting old and breaking down anyways so I got a new hard drive and had someone install Windows 7 from XP and move everything over. However - all that's there under "Old Files" are links to Web sites I frequented - NONE of my old files, pictures or E-mails can be found. Or at least I can't find them... Is there hope? Is there some secret place Windows 7 is hiding these files??? Thanks!
