Preferred Solution: Q about document after scan

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
I have a number of threads running at the moment so i apologise for starting another one but i imagine this will be an easy one for those who know about this sort of thing:
I have a recently purchased a very special document (to me) and I want to scan it and get it professionally printed so i can give the copied document back to who i bought it off so at least they can have a copy of it. I have a Brother LC985 scanner and copier but i imagine that this is not the best there is and i imagine it is very much a one-size-fits-all scanner so my question is what is the best way to get this scanned? Are there companies that do this sort of thing?
I hope my question doesn't read as odd as it does to me.
Thank you in advance.

Answer:What is the best scan I can get of a document?

Quite difficult to answer without knowing the size of the document, what material it is, printed or handwritten and what condition. Your scanner may be suitable.

Hi,
I have a street index in alphabetical order. I need to edit it by adding new streets. I tried sending it to my computer by fax and it was received but I can not find a way to edit it. I tried to copy/paste(but it won't), send to myself as an e-mail, etc.
If anoyone can suggest a way to do this please let me know. If I can get it in some format that allows me to put it on Word or in an e-mail, I think I can edit it, then print the new updated index.
Thanks
 

Answer:how to fax/scan, etc then edit document

naeem2,

What you need to do is scan the document.

If you have a scanner, it should have Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capability. OCR is the technology that allows you to transform paper documents in editable computer files. Using OCR, the scanner attempts to recognize the characters in the document and produce a text file which can then be edited. Keep in mind that it is not 100% accurate.

If you have a scanner, check the documentation for this feature. If you don't have a scanner, you can try a local photocopy store (such as Kinko's here in the US).

I have a four page document that has a few images in it. Is there some software (free)nthat I can use to scan it and edit it in Word?

Answer:Scan Document to Text

You may well have received an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) programme with the scanner that you are going to use to scan your document. The OCR programme will attempt to convert the resulting picture of the text in the scanned document into editable text.

I have a umax scanner running in xp(not a great setup but i can get it to work through ms publisher but not vista scan)but can i get it into word for editing the text

Answer:can i scan document then edit?

If you have an OCR program (Optical Character Recognition) then yes, you can scan the resume and have it converted to text.

Don't expect perfection in the spelling or the formatting however. Its very dependent on the clarity and size of the font on the scanned document.

Its unlikely that the free OCR software that would have come with your scanner works under XP, but there are free programs available, such as:
http://www.simpleocr.com/

Commercial (expensive) OCR programs give better results, but you may get useable conversions with simple packages.

Greetings,

I have followed their instructions for re-enabling the Real-Time Scan to the best of my abilities, by trying to restart the McShield Service, and by running the oas-disabled-fix.cmd utility that they instructed me to download. The oas-disabled-fix.cmd utility will not run.

I have contacted McAfee and they have told me that it is a problem with Windows Update. I have contacted Microsoft and told them that as well, but they seem to be trying to rule out any other possible cause, than what McAfee says is the actual cause of the problem, thereby dragging this out even longer.

Microsoft is supposed to be getting back to me again tomorrow, but any other help would be appreciated.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Almost every time I do quick scan and got nothing and I think it is good. However, I just read online, it says that when quick scan does not find anything then you do deep scan. It confuses me, since it means I should do deep scan all the time. ?
 

Answer:quick scan vs deep scan/full scan ( antivirus )

the 1000$ question is
which anti-virus
ON windows defender and malwarebytes and many others only a quick scan is necessary
The converse of what you have read is usually the case eg. You do a quick scan and only if that finds something should you then need to follow it with a full scan
For instance a threat scan on Malwarebytes paid for edition or the scan on the free version will scan up to 99% of the system
A full scan also scans the system restore points and other unusual places to detect, or at least try to detect, all possible traces of infection.
As I said it depends on the AV and to some extent the OS which I presume is not Windows 2000 as indeed commented on by my colleague Cookiegal in another of your topics
Also, it appears you're running Windows 7 and if you don't still have your Windows 2000 computer you should visit your profile and change that information so that it's current which makes it easier to help you in some casesClick to expand...

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

I don?t know what you mean with laptop keeps sending the document but if you have this issue with office word or some other office application, try to check some forum where you can find discussion about similar theme.

I can not give you any precise answer but it is maybe because of office specific settings or you press accidentally some key on the keyboard and on this way interrupt symbols entering.

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word. Additionally, I know that the document could be sent from Windows Explorer by right-cli... Read more

Hi....
I'm using word 2010.
I have a Mailmerge document (actually a company letter with header and footer, used by a package called "Cash4Windows" [C4W]). This document usually has the recipients name and address etc. inserted by C4W.
The document is a template - "xxx.dotx".
What I want to do is strip out the Mailmerge fields and save the document as a normal Word 2010 document, 'cos the User wants to have a blank standard company document available.
I've spent a long time fiddling with the Header and Footer to get just what the User wanted, and I know i could just cut-n-paste the Header and Footer into a new document, then save it as "xxx.docx", but when I looked on various help sites the normal method in Word 2010 seems to be
on the ribbon tab
Select Mailings
Select "Start Mail Merge"
Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.
I've tried this and it has absolutely no effect, as when I close and reopen Word and select the previously saved document, I still get the "Opening the document will run the following SQL command" splash screen!
I've tried saving the "normalised" document with various different extensions, but nothing seems to get rid of the SQL.
I've also tried opening the VBA editor (Alt+F11) to see if I can find the SQL, thinking that if I can delete the SQL it might cause Word to avoid the prompt, but I can't even find the SQL!!!

Now the problem is i need a backup of each letter on my computer and i have no clue if its even possible to save each page in the master document as a unique document. If not, is there a way of saving each unique document of a mail merger?

I am a teacher in Tennessee and I need to find a software that will enable me to edit and change a scanned document.

In the past day, my computer has been very tempermental. I am running Vista Home Premium and have been for about 2 months without any issues. I run Avira Antivir and Kaspersky Internet Security in the background. I ran a full Kaspersky scan and have no issues. Antivir has not found anything either, except for HP false positives. When I run Ad-Aware and Spybot scans, nothing shows up. I also ran CCleaner to scrub temp files and registry. Also, a quick scan with MBAM was clean.

But when I try to run a full scan in MBAM or SuperAntiSpyware, the computer hangs. This usually happens when the screen saver kicks in. So I disabled the screen saver, but it still happens. I cannot access anything at that point and have to power off from the power supply (ctl alt delete won't work).

Does anyone have any thoughts?

The Intel Driver & Support Assistant said that it had an update: Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows* [15.40]. When I did a scan with the Lenovo Companion app, it said there were no updates available. Why the difference of opinion betwee the two apps?

Answer:McAfee AV+ scan won't run and real-time scan keeps turning off; browsers stopped working, Ad-Aware quit too

I have been having an issue with Symantec Leaving my logs full with scan Omissions 99% of which are compressed. After doing considerable research I find symantec gives a nice list of possabilities and things to look into. Personally none of these fixed my issue, but it may yours. If Anyone has any Ideas to add to Symantec's offical list of reasons for scan omissions please do.---------------------------------------------The following is From Symantec @ http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ent-s...002073015235648Event ID 6Solution:This event is typically encountered when any of the following occurs: You scan a compressed file that contains a password-protected file. The decomposer engine cannot provide the password required to gain access to the file, so it will be omitted during a scan. You scan files that have been locked for access by the operating system and access cannot be released to the scanner because the file is in use. You scan files that are recursively compressed to a depth that is more than the scan engine is set to scan. By default, the scan engine is set to scan a maximum depth of three levels (for example, a zip file contained within a zip file contained within another zip file). You scan files with LH7 compression, which is not a supported format. These compressed files commonly have an .lzh extension, and they are omitted by the scan. You scan files that are in use by another user. This is most commonly seen when you scan user directories and shared folders... Read more

My McAfee virus Scan 8 is working pretty hard at the moment, kicking out about 20 viused emails per day. Trouble is, each time it stops the machine, comes up with a warning asking me what I want to do, and then, after I say "continue what i was doing", recommends I scan my whole machine - not really practical 20 times per day! - to which i have to manually answer "no thank you2>I have been into all the configuration to see if it will just act automatically and delete the things on arrival, but can't find a way of changing the setup. Any ideas?Rick

My computer was at a crawl, even step from booting to loading the desktop and beyond took at least 50x as long. But in Safe Mode, it was running only a little slower than usual, so I suspected a virus or malware. Attempts at using AVG antivirus's command line scan in Safe Mode was met with messages such as 'Boot Sector Hidden' or something like 'Processes scanning failed'.
Desperately I tried to run CHKDSK. Seemed to solve the problem, but just after that, AVG antivirus crashed while scanning. Next day, I try again, AVG seems to work detecting no threats, and Malwarebytes detected nothing too.
NOW I want to make sure my computer is virus or malware free. Please help me, this is my only laptop.
I have Hijack this logs, but there is some error message about hosts files, I can post them if you want.. I tried aswmbr anti root kit , but the program always crashes just as it's checking sysmain.dll
Some background: Awhile ago, I accidently installed some malware by not unchecking the right boxes while installing DAEMON tools. Found out it was messing with my browser, so used Spybot Search and Destroy plus Malwarebytes anti-malware, found some malware uninstalled them, also remove them through Control Panel. Seemed fine. until a day later when I accidently turned off the mains power to the laptop, without any battery in. Then the slow down suddenly appeared. I have accidently done this before but it never had this effect.

Answer:aswmbr can't scan, Antivirus can't scan, Computer at a crawl from startup

I have windows vista, and whenever i run my virus scan or spyware scan, my computer locks up when it gets to a specific folder. that folder is program files/common files/microsoft shared/office 12. If i try to go to that folder, the computer locks up as well. I have no idea what to do about it. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Answer:Computer Freezes And Restarts When I Run Virus Scan Or Spyware Scan

Try running your scans in safe mode. The Advanced Boot Options menu lets you start Windows in advanced troubleshooting modes. You can access the menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key before Windows starts. Select safe mode there, and run the scan.

Hey all.
 
I was running a full scan on my Win8 system using Defender.  After 15 minutes, scan was three-quarters completed with no problems, so  I left the computer for five minutes.  When I returned, Defender had switched over to a Quick Scan in order to finish up. 
 
No threats found, either by Defender or by MBam, which I ran afterwards.  But is it unusual for Defender to switch from Full to Quick scan mid-operations? 

Answer:Windows Defender Full Scan Switches Over To Quick Scan

I never heard of that happening before so I'm not sure how it occurred.There are three types of scans offered by Windows 8/10 Defender and most other anti-virus/anti-malware programs:Quick Scan only checks the areas of your computer most likely to contain malware...the most prevalent and common places where malware typically hides. The length of time for performing a Quick scan will vary but it generally takes about 15-30 minutes so they can be performed daily.Full Scan is much more comprehensive since it scans the entire hard drive (all folders/files) which can number in the thousands. The length of time for performing a Full scan will also vary but because it is so comprehensive, this type of scan can take several hours. Most Full Scans can be scheduled to run late at night when not using the computer so you can perform a weekly scan without having to monitor it.Custom Scan allows the user to select any files and folders on the hard drive to be scanned.In most cases when performing routine security checks, only a Quick Scan is needed since it checks the areas of your computer most likely to contain malware...the most prevalent and common places where malware typically hides. A Full scan is generally recommended only for heavily infected systems.

I have Avast version 4.7 Home Edition Free installed on my computer.

When I ran a scan today with Avast, it detected a virus and I deleted it. I then ran another scan and there were no viruses reported.

Then I went to Kaspersky's online virus scanner and ran it and it detected 2 viruses on my computer, but of course the only way to get rid of the one's detected is to purchase Kaspersky Anti Virus.

Questions are.
1. How did the virus that Avast detected get on the computer in the first place? I have the on access protection control running with all of the modules activated with the exception of Outlook (I do not have Outlook on my computer).

2. Why is Kaspersky detecting 2 viruses on my computer at the present time and Avast detects none?

Do I need to ditch Avast Free and pay for Kaspersky as a better Virus protector.

Thanks for any ideas and suggestions,

Jerry

I just finish off using my CA security suite to custom scan 1 file, but the mesg. didn't say whether it was scanning the file itself, or the files within the RAR file.

So how do you know the anti virus software is doing its job?
 

Answer:when an anti-virus scan a RAR file, should it automatically scan the inside?

Check the options or settings within CA to see if it is set to scan inside compressed files, and if it isn't, turn it on. An AV that doesn't scan inside compressed files is about as worthless as a screen door on a submarine.
