Outlook 2007 autoaccept meeting only during start time to end time.

Question: Outlook 2007 autoaccept meeting only during start time to end time.

I have quite a conundrum. My Outlook calendar is set to a start time of 7am to and end time of 3pm Monday through Friday. I have turned on auto accept meetings and turned on auto decline conflicting meetings. This all works great. It has declined and added new meetings and all is working wonderfully.... EXCEPT one MAJOR issue.

The auto accept accepts during times that are not my standard work hours. If I set a start time of 7am and an end time of 3pm why is my Outlook accepting meetings at 12pm and 8pm and on weekends?

Outlook Calendar shows start time in the monthly view but not the end time. I have right clicked on the calendar gone to Other Settings and checkmarked "Show End Time" but the end time still does not show. How do I make the start and end time show in the monthly view?

Answer:Outlook Calendar shows start time in the monthly view but not the end time.

You did not say what version of Outlook.

I am using Outlook 2007 and note the same as you - only the start time is displayed. I note on mine, if the end time was displayed, there would be little to no room for the Subject title so for me, I would rather have the appointment title instead of the end time. I think in a crowded field (as the monthly view can be) that is best for most people.

I don't see a fix for you. However, for a workaround, with Outlook being in "focus", if you hover over the appointment with your mouse, then the stop time is also displayed in a bubble.

Dear friends,

Is it possible to use OWA and outlook( of MS office) at the same time ? I don't want to lose any data but synchronise at the same time. Thanks

Answer:Can I use OWA and Outlook 2007 at the same time ?

So your account is an exchange account?

Do you want to know if you can use regular outlook when in the office connected to the exchange server and owa (outlook web access) when you are out of the office?

If so than yes you can. They will synchronize just fine no matter which method you use.

Hello,I have Microsoft Outlook 2007 on Windows XP SP3When I open outlook I can see all my e-mails and everything but when it goes to Send/Receive it pops up a window asking for a password. And it has my Server, User name, and then a spot to enter my password, it does this every time it goes to Send/Receive. (See screen shot below, I have removed the User Name and Server for security reasons)I have tried to get my e-mail on various computers using the same settings and it always worked.I know all my settings are right cause I checked them at least 20 times with my host.I go to "Account Settings" and I click "Change..." and under "Login Information" I enter my Password and place a check in the "Remember Password" check box and then click "Next" > "Finish" then once I click on "Change..." again and look under "Login Information" the password is gone but the check in the "Remember password" box is still there.If any one has any information on how to fix this, I would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!

Since updating to Outlook 2007, I receive 4 copies of every email sent to me, all at the same time. These are not coming in over a period of days, but 4 copies of each email simultaneously. I have to delete 3 emails every time. Have tried dissabling and re-enabling AVG Free with no change.

Open for suggestions.

Answer:Why do I get 4 email copies at the same time in Outlook 2007?

Tools>Account Settings

Do you have more than one entry of that account? If so, you probably should remove the other entries. Just be sure that they are all exactly the same if this is the case.

Do you have another way to check that email account? For example, if you use Gmail, do you get 4 copies of the mail when you check Gmail via the web?

But i don't know where to find these things. I did a search on google and i found contactgenie, but it is $80 and i will only use it one time. Not quite cost effective there. Could someone give me some idea on what to do?

Also, I tried to open VBA in outlook and it wouldn't open. I press Alt+ F11 is that not right? That is where i enter the code isn't it?

Most of my users are on Outlook 2003, but some are on Outlook 2007. When a 2007 user uses the scheduling assistant to try and set a meeting, the message appears No Information. No free/busy information could be retrieved.

Note: a 2003 user can see the other 2003 user's schedule.

Is this something that needs to be set at the Exchange level? How do I resolve?

In Outlook 2007 (on WinXP Pro SP3), I have defined a number of rules to presort incoming email into various folders. Not all of the rules work for reasons I cannot determine (that's a question for another time), but most do. Oddly, any messages automatically moved to one particular folder always have a received time stamp of five hours earlier.

That is, a message that arrives at 9am is timestamped 4am.

Now my local timezone is EST, so this is the opposite of what would happen were the machine running with a timezone of, say, GMT, where timestamps would be 5 hours AHEAD (i.e., messages arriving at 9am would be timestamped 2pm).

As a software developer for a company with international locations, I occasionally must reset the timezone and time on my machine in order to test software, and several times I have had to set my machine to JST (Japan Standard Time, or GMT+9) but I have long since set it back again.

To anticipate several questions, both the folder and the rule were defined before any of the periods during which I was running with an altered time/timezone (i.e., none were created during one of those periods), neither did I change (nor save) any rules during those periods.

Anyone have any idea what is happening? How may I reset the timestamps for this rule/folder?

i have been looking everywhere on the web about stylus/pen active or passive compatibilities with different dell inspiron machines.
everybody is confused about styluses. not just consumers but also Dell reps. nobody knows whats going on..
dell reps told me on 2 occsasions that all 13-7000 series support active stylus/pen.
i think with the new 7th gen core processor models emerging it might be worthwhile to make it clear to all your reps, or have the correct information about it on hand for them.
if you search on the web about this, you will see what im talking about!
either you guys have a group meeting or dell inspiron customers will have their own support group meetings soon.

Can someone please advise. I schedule a recurrent meeting about a year ago for a group of people. I have since deleted it from my calendar but it can still be viewed in the calendars of the invited attendees. As this is causing confusion, can anyone tell me how I can delete the recurrence even though I can't view it anymore?

Sorry this sounds so dippy .. if I wasn't so dippy I wouldn't have made the stupid mistake in the first place!!!

thanks in advance ...

Answer:Outlook 2007 - recurrent meeting

hi c4twoman,

When you deleted the meeting, did you do it for all occurences or just one.

Anyway, when doing so, Outlook should have asked you if you wanted to send an update, which would have then deleted upon receipt by the attendees.

If that hasn't happened, simplest is to send the attendees an email asking them to detete the meeting from their calendars themselves, all occurernces.

Our business recently upgraded to Outlook 2007. I have one user who, when scheduling a meeting, cannot see the attendees free/busy schedules. This is the only user of @300 affected. To date I have:
1)Run the /cleanfreebusy, /cleanreminders, /cleanprofile and every /clean....I can think of.
2)Uninstalled/reinstalled Office 2007.
3)Created a new email profile
4)Created a new user profile. With this, the user was able to see the free/busy times for a few days, but now it is back to square one - cannot see the attendees schedules.

There is no /cleanscheduleplus available in Outlook 07. We are running on an Exchange 03 server, and the OS is a corporate XP image.

A user scheduled an email to send yesterday morning but it sent same time this morning. So I assume she had put the wrong date.

To prove to her and test myself I tried a couple of emails back to me. I browsed them in the outbox and then waited. They still sat there.

I tried another couple and ignored them in the Outbox - they worked.

so my conclusion was that she still put the wrong date, but the test also highlighted that you're forced to set and forget (The topic of this thread). Otherwise they get stuck. Even if I re-schedule and save again in the Outbox, they stay.

Is there a way to edit an email in the Outbox before it's sent without it losing its delay schedule?
Otherwise the delay function is a bit useless if you're forced to create a brand new email and delay schedule after a re-edit.

I'm aware you can create a delay rule but this is just for one off emails rather than across the board.

In Outlook 2007 Calendar, the default reminder time is 15 minutes. That is, Outlook will remind you of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

In Tools\Options..., I've tried to set the default reminder time to a shorter interval. But no matter what I set it to--10 minutes, 12 minutes, 5 minutes--Outlook keeps reminding me of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

In Tools\Options..., there's a checkbox called "Default Reminder:" Whether I check it or leave it unchecked has no effect on the reminder time either--Outlook keeps reminding me of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

Recovery the notebook back to factory settings,.
Are you using the Win 8 or Win 7 system?

Usually the Win 7 notebooks supports an HDD recovery by pressing F8 -> Repair my Computer -> HDD recovery.

If the same problem will appear straight after the system has been recovered, I presume there is an hardware problem and an service technician should check the hardware parts.

I have a user who is trying to print a meeting request from her calendar in Outlook 2007. When she opens the meeting and tries to print, she gets this error:

"There is a problem with the selected printer. You might need to reinstall the printer. Try again, or use a different printer."

This message comes up no matter which printer she chooses (local or network). Oddly enough, when she opens the item within the meeting request, she is able to print that. She is also able to print other items (emails, Word docs, etc.) to all printers with no problems.

Any ideas?? We are new to Office 2007 & this is the first time I've seen this. I was unable to duplicate the problem on my machine.

Was this a new clean install of Office 2007 and its happening each time or just appeared?

Is this happening in the Admin or Limited accounts or both?

This could be a potential as did work on one PC I worked on, that said doesnt work for all

or if this is on Limited User accounts, temporarily change their account details to give them admin rights, then log in on that account, run one/all of the Office apps so that this installer runs, then reboot and log in again to check, if works ok then revert their account back to Limited User.

I m here again with a problem which I facing since long. when I start computer and launch FF. it takes too much time. no more then at least 50 sec to 1 minute. after start first time, if I close FF and start it again its its launch quickly. and the most funny thing is which is wonder me alot that FF itself know that and often after start FF, its says in status bar of FF that "FF taking too much time to start, to solve this problem follow the steps" (or something like that)
and FF suggest Reset firefox from FF button->Help->troubleshoot problem->reset firefox.
but this method did not solve the problem. FF updated regularly when new update available and the current version is,,,,,, 27.01.

Answer:FireFox taking too much time to launch first time after start pc.


Have a look here:

Try disabling all plugins on a temporary basis and see if Firefox starts faster.

Before trying to reinstall Firefox - backup your Firefox profile using:

MozBackup - Backup tool for Firefox and Thunderbird

Run the program and backup your current profile and save it as a .pcv file somewhere handy.

Then fully remove Firefox and either reboot or run a system cleaning product.

Reinstall Firefox and see if it boots faster. If it doesn't - it's not a problem with Firefox.

If it's okay - run MozBackup again and use it to restore the profile that you saved earlier.

Start Firefox.

Weird but common problem apparently....

Yesterday the time went up an hour and on one of our system machines the time is not right. Outlook 2000 is showing an hour behind from the system time. So far I have done the following:

1. I tried changing the time in the control panel.
2. I tried changing the time in outlook under calender.
3. I downloaded the Microsoft Office Outlook Tool and tried that.
4. I ran office 2000 in safe mode and still nothing.

my guess is that the email server's time did not change.

2. I tried changing the time in outlook under calender.
3. I downloaded the Microsoft Office Outlook Tool and tried that.
4. I ran office 2000 in safe mode and still nothing.

Anyone know how to correct this?

Hello - strange problem one of our users is having - when she picks up a draft email (she has previously prepared) then sends it, the email is recieved with the draft date, instead of the sending date. This means that the recipient cant see the new message (they will find it in listed as being recieved on the "draft" date). I have been unable to duplicate this error! Has anyone heard of this happening?

Hello friends

recently, about a month ago I noticed that something going wrong with my PC,

Computer: Acer
OS: Windows XP prof 2002
SP: 3

evey time I log in I found sometimes 3 hours behind my local time, some times 30 mints. 1 hour etc..
it's almost happening evey time I start up my PC,

why this happening?

help me Pls to solve this issue,

Thank you

Answer:why changing time every time start up pc?

My guess is that it is probably the CMOS battery is needing to be replaced. This is very easy to do, and not very expensive less than $5.00 US.
It is a small flat battery (like an enlarged hearing aide battery). If you computer is a desk top, disconnect all sources of power and open the case. You should be able to see it by the mother board.
If it is a lap top, again remove all power, including the battery.they are usually under the ram cards. Check the manual for your particular computer to find out exactly where they have place it.

Hello, folks.

I'd just like to say that I have been coming here for quite some time and never even needed to make a single post because you had all the answers waiting for me, and I should thank you all a great deal for that. One of the finest communities on the web, and I'm proud to say I've linked at least a couple of dozen people to these boards, if not more. They all have recieved great help as well.

This time, however, I don't think I am capable of helping myself, and I think I require the assistance of a pro. I myself, while having been able to help myself before, really have very little knowledge of this stuff. Now, I did almost everything in the READ ME AND RUN ME FIRST thread, a few things I was not able to do. I think I know which malware problems I have, I am just unsure of how to rid myself of them, and I'd rather not take a chance and delete something important.

Anyway, I have attached my HiJack This log file, hopefully someone can find the time to help me as this site has many many times before.

Thanks, all the best...

Please run the below two online scanning tools and make sure you save and attach the logs later to any request for help that you post. From step 5 you should already be in safe mode but you will need to reconnect your cable now and possibly reboot and choose Safe Mode with Networking Support. If you cannot connect in safe mode for any reason (like dial-up users), run the online scanners in normal boot mode. You will need to use Internet Explorer to run these online scans.

It's critical that my PC keeps the exact time as I record TV shows on it so just a few seconds off one way or the other will make me miss the start or end of my shows.

I found it was drifting off too much between syncs so I found a program that lets me set it to sync daily, however it seems like most of the time it gets the time completely wrong, often as much as 30-90 seconds off. I did notice that when syncing manually in the time settings it normally gets the right time each time, so I don't know why the scheduled syncs get the wrong time.

I did try several of the time servers with the same results.

Is there just no way to get the Windows time sync to work properly and if not are there free third party programs that can do it reliably?

hey guys,

I had a quick search and it didn't come up with any answers so I thought I'd post a thread to see if someone could help me.

At work we have recently upgraded to Office 2007 and now one of the Excel programs that uses VBA code has a run time error when using the program, to my knowledge it was fine before switching to Office 2007 and now it doesn't run.

I am not very competent with programming, I have only done basic stuff with Java and C+ with my degree. But basically you run the Excel program and it gives "run-time error 16 : expression is too complex" then after hitting debug it points to a line in the code. The program is basically a selection program that we put criteria into and it spits out a selection for us.

This is pretty much all the information I can give at this stage, please let me know if you can help.

Hi there,

I was hoping to find some help regarding time stamps in excel. I'm currently doing time studies with regards to inter-arrival times of patients to a hospital and manually recording the times down ( not the best thing in the world ). Does anyone know how i should go about doing it?

I was hoping to have excel record a time stamp (hour:minutes: seconds) every time i hit a record button of sorts and concurrently assign that time a numerical patient number. I was hoping to then use that data to create a chart that showcased the arrival trend along a 24 hour period.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Excel 2007 time study sheet

Welcome to the forum Tim.

If you're recording a macro, be sure that you fix your time stamp by copy and pasting the value, otherwise your formula could keep updating itself with the current time/date.

If I'm barking up the wrong tree, please give more details on what you're after.

I am about to upgrade to six Windows 7 machines and am seriously considering staying with my Office 2007 for Word and Excel (and PowerPoint, which I rarely use). I cannot find any compelling reasons to go to Office 2013 at this time and about the only reason I can think of that "might" make it worthwhile is something few reviewers seem to talk about. That's load time.

I will be putting SSDs into my two main machines for OS and apps so that should certainly help, but the laptop and other office machine won't have SSD (at least not for awhile). Time is money and I open and close Word and Excel many times a day.

Is there any chance that Word and Excel 2013 will load so much more quickly than Word and Excel 2007 that it's worth the upgrade?


Answer:Office 2007 vs 2013 - loading time?

Hi there,

I wouldn't say load time is a factor when comparing the two versions. The OS helps, because it prioritizes what it keeps in memory from the number of times you open an application, so it should be faster the more you open it regardless of the version. I'd always recommend upgrading from Office 2007, there were just too many issues, like charting (which is partially broken), and much better in subsequent versions. 2010 is pretty solid, but I personally prefer 2013 because of the rich feature set.

If you really just don't want 2013, I'd recommend at least upgrading to 2010, which is much better than 2007. If it were me, I'd just go with 2013. There have been many advancements, like slicers, sparklines, timelines, flash fill, Power Pivot, not to mention the under-the-hood changes.

I am creating a query to calculate the time difference between 2 different times. The query is based on a 'Rota' table with fields called Time_In and Time_Out, example of a Time_In or Time_Out record is 09:45. The format for each of these fields has been set to Short Time, input mask 00:00;0;_. The formula I have used in the query is:
Hours_Worked: DateDiff("h",[Time_In],[Time_Out]) which produces a result but displays it as a whole number (ie, 1, 2 etc). I have gone into the Property sheet in the query and changed the format to Short Time for this calculation but the result comes back as 00:00 for each record. How can I get it to display in hours and minutes? Many thanks for your help.

Answer:Calculating time difference in Access 2007

I'm not terribly familiar with Access, but I'm researching your issue. In the mean time, my suggestion would be to change the DateDiff argument "h" to "m" to get the interval in minutes. From there, you could have it obtain hours using division, and the additional minutes using the modulus function. Here's an example (again, I'm not familiar with the syntax of Access so I'll try to make it as generic as possible):

int time = 254 //the time difference in minutes (example)
int h //the hours integer for our displayed time
int m //the minute integer for our displayed time
str diff //the string to display the formatted time

h = floor(time/60) //divide the minutes by 60 to get hours, use floor to make sure it is always rounded down
m = mod(time,60) //this will return the number of minutes for the displayed time

str = Cstr(h) + ":" + Cstr(m) //convert the numbers to strings for display
Note that this could would not make the numbers double digits all the time, so 4 hours and 2 minutes would be displayed as "4:2"

Hi there,

Can you give me some idea on how to do this...

I am creating a Training Management solution. For this some of the training modules they need requalification after x time. (This time is stored in the database, but is currently stored as (6 months, annually or 3 years) (should this be stored as the number of days?).

So the training table looks like this:

TrainingCode - Primary Key
Traning Name
Requires refresher? - List (6 months, annually, 3 years)
Mandatory? - Yes/No

And I have another table which links a colleague to a training module with a date they trained which looks like this:

ID - Primary Key
Training Name - List from Traning table
Colleague Name - List from Colleagues table
Date Trained
Trainer - List from Colleagues Table

Nowww... what I can't get my head around is:

b) How to create a report to show a list of all colleagues that are due refresher training in the next 60 days

c) How to create the queries to run both of the above reports

d) How to print a list of all mandatory training that is incomplete...

Create text columns of 3 columns

All you have tried is right. It is not easy to say why you have this freezing problem but I think in this situation best solution is clean OS installation (factory settings).
In user?s manuals document is explained how to do this. I don?t know why do you use ?0? at start-up.
Start notebook again with F8 and use option ?Repair my computer?.

How it works you can also read on follow Toshiba document-

Please test it and pos some feedback.

Hi all.

First off, I'll say I can open word fine from a shortcut or using the EXE file. But when I click on a DOCX file, I get a window that word is preparing to install, then it gathers information and configures itself; then I think it runs an installer (?). And then, finally, it opens my file. I can close and click on the same file right away and it goes through the whole process. Every time.

It's annoying and time consuming. I've tried a couple of online "fixes" including running this line:
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
and using Fix-It from Microsoft. No joy.

So I thought I'd best come here where I tend to trust y'all know what you're doing. And sometimes even what I'm doing!

As usual, I appreciate the help.

Answer:Word 2007 goes to install every time I open a docx file

Hi pretty weird :/
Have you also tried the uninstall a program option to fix all office programs ?
I rarely if ever use docx
They have features that are unneeded to me personally,

With a problematic file after it goes though all of the nonsense and opens,
Save the file as a compatible 2003 doc file and see if the issue remains with the new file.

I've also posted a request for help in the "Business Application" forum. - Thank you

For the last week or so, every time I run Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 my system will hang after a couple minutes of use. I've used OneNote almost daily for quite awhile. I can't think of anything that changed around the time this problem started. Ctrl - alt -delete will not help. The only way out is to shut down the laptop with the power button.

Thank you in advance for any help on this. It's become quite a problem.

I did a comparison of these two products to see how they performed...

My base system is a Dell Precision 390 with 4gb of ddr2 667mhz ram, Core 2 2.13GHZ cpu, virtualization turned on, SataII western digital 160gb harddrive for the storage location (OS is sataII seagate):

Load/boot times are from the initial VMware bios screen till a prompt to login, from a "differencing/clone" image off the network location via gigabit, with differencing files stored on the wd harddrive locally.

x86 Vista RTM load times:
average load time was 1min 27s

VMware 6.x:
average load time was 48s

x64 vista rtm:
load time 55 seconds (about 7 seconds slower than x86, worth noting)

At least on load times, it seems Vmware wins out here. I also like the functionality better with Vmware, virtual networks etc. With virtual pc, to get virtual networks, you must install Virtual Server 2005, which to me, felt very slugish and non-intuitive.

So I'm wondering, if everyone else has found Vmware to be the better product thus far, especially since it will run x64 as a guest OS.

How does Vmware compare speed/abilities to Parallels?

Answer:Virtual pc 2007 vs Vmware 6.x (load time results)... which is better in general..

I have not worked much on VMware, but as far as my knowledge is concerned. VMware is the best option for server consolidation and virtualisation.

I am working with a .docx file about 20MB. I included several figures (different formats, e.g. .eps, .emf, etc.) with numbered captions and crossreferences in the running text. However, Word screws up the document and puts an additional figure into the correct crossreference itself. I do a fair amout of editing, deleting the double figure, but when trying to print the document (update table, numbers, etc.) the double figures are back. For me it is still a mystery, since not every figure is put twice in .docx. Can anyone help me with that? Many thanks in advance!

I just heard on the news that the US and Canada is changing the start and end of Daylight Savings Time next year.

I believe it will begin one month earlier and end one month later.

Windows computers, like mine, auto adjust when there is a time change. Will the computer fix itself on the new dates?

Is this something built into Windows XP that can not be changed, or does the computer change its time based on's Time Service?


Also, I have a clock that sets itself to the proper time as soon as you plug it in. So if I unplug it and plug it back on, it is the right time again.

With this clock, are the dates stored permanently on it or does it somehow receive the time through the power source?

Will this clock be screwed up next year and in the future when the time changes occur on different times of the year?

Hi Everyone, In the last 2-3 weeks my G780 notebook takes more then 5 minutes to start loading the BIOS. I mean the time while the screen is black and no backlight before BIOS.HDD led is blinking but there is no read/write I think. The CPU is getting warm but the fan isn't working. The BIOS hasn't been started yet. I tried removing the HDD, ODD, memory but the problem wasn't solved.When the system is booted then there is no problem, everything works good.If I restart the system in the Windows 8.1 then it boots normally but if I shut it down and power on again then it takes long time to start. Can anybody help my to fix it? Or I should send it to the service?

If I am in the wrong forum, please let me know.

About a month after I started using it, the Say the Time clock program I bought stopped launching the management menu when I right click the date/time field in the task tray (notification area).

Therefore, I can't use or edit the program.

Neither the touchpad nor the cordless mouse works.

Other than this problem, my computer works great. Every single item that's meant to be right clicked works for me.

Is there a way I can generate a log to show the software manufacturer (Provenio) that it's their problem and not mine?

I am a novice user but I can follow instructions.

However, I don't want to put my computer at risk if I make an entry error.

Or is it obvious that it's a software problem?

I've been using computers for 18 years and I've never had this problem until I bought this software and used it for about a month.

I just wanted a conclusive way of putting the ball back in the manufacturer's court.

Thanks for any suggestions.


Answer:Say the Time Date/Time Field in Task Tray Doesn't Launch Menu

I am using Nokia Lumia 720. The results are the best so far.
However today I started facing following issue.
It is giving me the message 'Slide down to power off' automatically in regular intervals without clicking any button.
When I slide down it should shut down and stay shut down till I start again, however it is restarting automatically and again flashing the same message.
The middle button is not working for me.
Can anyone please advice me what can be the solution for this ?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 720 Automatically giving message time to time 'Slide down to power off'

Seems like the power button is stuck. If your phone is still under warranty, send it for repair. If not, try removing the battery cover. then turn on the phone without the cover installed.

It takes about 30 seconds (the loading screen) after I log in using password until the desktop appears. And then everytime I shut down the computer, it keeps showing the "waiting for background program to close" screen but there aren't any program listed in the screen. Does anyone know how to improve this?

Satellite A100-192 PSAA9 with ATI X1600 video card.

Despite the fact that I have installed the most recent driver from the Toshiba support site, display darkens (turns off) from time to time with no apparent reason.

I turn off the computer by pushing the on button for several seconds.

When I turn the computer on, the display is still dark although computer boots.

Only after I take the computer battery off and on again and then turn the computer on, the display is OK.

I haven't been able to find out whether it's a hardware or software issue.

Computer is one and a half years old.

I wanted to find out whether anybody has had such an experience before I take the computer to the service center.

Avast Anti-Virus prevents to send emails time to time, it occurred on a computer in my home network, and then on the other one. This Avast does not issue any messages, just emails remain in the Outbox and do not
appear in Sent items.
I know three ways to send emails in this situation. All this three ways are bad.
  1) Exclusion of scanning outgoing emails in the avast settings. This is bad, since sending emails goes unchecked.

  2) Exclusion of checking port 80 in the avast settings. I found it here -  There is explanation there, why it is bad.

  3) Restart of the computer, just after restarting outgoing emails go normally.

Dear All,

I hope you can help. Recently bought a new LaCie Wireless Space.
I am connected to it as a wi-fi router to get onto the internet.
However, my Time Machine software will not recognise it as a time capsule.
If I search for it in Airport Utility I a message that says "Airport Utility was unable to find any Airport wireless device" etc etc. Yet I am currently connected to it on wi-fi.

Also, if I open Time Machine and "select backup disk" the following appears:
MyShare on "WirelessSpace (Time Machine)"
OpenShare on "WirelessSpace (Time Machine)"

But on selecting either of them the following message appears:
Time Machine can't access the backup disk "MyShare". (or "OpenShare")
The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error 5.)

Finally, if I go into my Disk Utilities , there is no LaCie Wireless Space icon in the left column
However, there is a Wireless Sace (Time Machine) icon under the "Shared" column when I click on the computers hard drive icon on the desktop, BUT is states "Connection Failed"

I really have no idea where else to look and what else to do - other than contact LaCie - but they have not got back to me now for 3 days.

Any ideas????

hey guys,

i just bought a new M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard to enjoy great sound in a foobar2000 + flac combination.

i've successfully installed the Vista 32bit drivers in compatibility mode and everything worked fine until then.

after starting to listen to music, i've experienced that from time to time (doesn't matter if i do something with the PC or just leave it there only playing music) the sound starts hanging (and it sounds like stuttering) for 1-3 seconds. then it comes back to normal...and a few minutes later it happens again. it's VERY annoying...

tried playing with WMP (wasn't happy about it) but the same happens.
tried vista 64bit drivers but couldn't install them. tried old Windows XP SP2 drivers, installed fine but no sound.

any1 got any ideas?
am i the only one who has this issue? did i buy a broken soundcard?

please help.

thanx alot in advance

Answer:M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound hanging/stuttering from time to time

Hello. Here is my issue short and sweet.

When I use ANY of the web based emails (Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast) on computer A, all of my emails are stamped an hour earlier than real time. By real time, I mean the clock on the computer AND the analog tick-tock clock on my kitchen wall. Both display the correct time accurately.

When I use ANY of the web based emails (Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast) on computer B (or C or D), all of my emails are stamped with real/correct time that matches my kitchen and computer. These computers ALSO reflect correct time.

With either computer, any file created or saved has a date and time stamp that is correct and reflects real time. Whether saved with a web app, a windows app or a cmd line app.

On all computers my time zone is set correctly. The "adjust for DST" box is checked. I also ran TZEDIT to confirm that my DST dates are correct.

One revelation (and I believe herein lies the key). If I look on computer A at the bottom of the "Date and Time Properties box: the current time zone says : Eastern *STANDARD* time. If I look at computers B, C or D. The "Date and Time Properties box says: current time zone: Eastern *DAYLIGHT* time. I can not find any way to change the "STANDARD" to "DAYLIGHT".

Now for the big question. How is this resolved?

Thank you.

PS. As mentioned in other posts, Adjusting the clock on computer A an hour ahead resolves the email issue, but now any file created or modified has the incorrec... Read more
