1 solution suggests creating a new profile.

1. If I create a new profile, can I import the messages & addresses / contacts? If so, how?
I found this for exporting / importing contacts.

2. If I use Microsoft's backup add-in, will the problems come along?

3. After backing up, should I delete the existing profile before creating a new profile?

4. After creating the new file, how do I access the messages & contacts? I found this.

Thanks for your help.

I have two problems with Outlook. I don't connect when I click on a hyperlink in an e-mail. And no pictures are displayed.

Answer:Outook 2003 Hyperlinks Fail

If hyperlinks are not working in Outlook or other Office applications:

Start the Internet Explorer
Select Tools / Internet Options
Click on Programs tab
Make sure that Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser is enabled
Click Reset Web Settings.

Click Start / Run / regsvr32 urlmon.dll

If that single change does not resolve the problem, repeat the process by running the following additional entries:
regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Msjava.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll

I've been having problems with Outlook Express crashing and/or having problems that keep giving me an error message about the log file being too big or something. I keep my sent file folder and deleted file folder relatively empty. My inbox has less than 20 items in it, none of them huge. Can anyone tell me how and where I can fix this? If there is no fix, if I download a new copy of Outlook Express over the old one, will my address book reamin in tact? Thanks for your help.


Answer:Outook Express - log file problem

Try some maintenance first and see if this helps to clear it up.
Close all programs except Outlook Express, including any antivirus programs you may have running.

First in OE, Tools>Options>Maintenance, uncheck the option for: Compact messages in the background and leave it unchecked from now on.

File>Folder>Compact all Folders. Leave the computer alone until it has completed compacting.

Let us know if this resolves the problem or not.

I transferred MS Word 2000 from my old computer to a new one which I recently purchased. When I attempt to address an envelope, using my HP OfficeJet, the address is superimposed on the envelope 90 degrees from what it should be. In other words, instead of the address appearing normally (running lengthwise of the envelope), it appears crosswise of the envelope. I made no changes in the program during transfer from one computer to the other and it printed envelopes normally on the old computer. Any suggestions?

Question 2: My three year old laptop worked fine until the power cord somehow pulled the plug-in from the motherboard. Repair shop kept it for three weeks, said they soldered it several times and it wouldn't hold, so they sold me a new one. Did I get ripped off or is it next to impossible to fix?

Thanks so much for any advice given,

Answer:outook calendar

Hello and Welcome to TSF

I cannot answer your first question, there is not enough information to go off of. You need to post a complete error message and when you recieve this error.

As for question 2, yes you can solder those connections back on to the motherboard but sometimes they dont hold as they stated. You may just have had a unexperienced person do the soldering, hard to tell.

I always keep a backup of my Outlook .pst file just n case I need it...

Just doing a back up and notice that the files do not have any association linked... I am sure it used to show the Outlook icon but can't be sure... can anyone confirm this.. I did try to link to Outlook but is failed...

This is what I mean...

This is what I get when I try to associate it to Outlook... Which seems odd... unless it is because Outlook is open?

Answer:Outook Office 365 .pst

Mine have the Outlook association, I'm using the Office 2016 package rather than the Office 365 but should be same.

I would advise you use the installer (uninstaller - Change), to do a repair rather than manually setting the association as the Office associations are not standard

If it is only that one Email, I would guess Outlook classes it as a security risk/virus/trogan and will not allow it.You could check the security settings (may be set too high)or if it is an attachment, you may have to save it first, before trying to open it.Terry

I am operating on Windows 7 OS and am having difficulty with Outlook for Office 2010. It always asks for a password each time I sign on and when I open an email. For some reason it doesn't store my password.

Answer:Outook 2010 always requires password

That problem is by no means unique to Outlook 2010, it happens also on Outlook 2007 and on the version before that, and neither is it unique to Windows 7.

Try putting your POP3 server name and password into the "Credential Manager" in Control Panel. For good measure I entered my email credentials twice -- in "Windows Credentials" and in "Generic Credentials". I hardly see that pesky password prompt since doing that.

I created a database in Access 2007. I am a relative newbe at this. One of the functions that I am using is a macro that Microsoft supplied as part of a Contacts table/form template to add Contacts from Outlook to the Contacts table in the the database. It was working just fine until I split the database, putting the tables on a server and the front end on my local PC. After splitting, it will no longer work. I have spent hours searching the Web and found 100's for people asking the same question, but no solution. Front and back end files are all in Trusted locations. Went back to a copy of the pre-split database (which still worked) and copy the object to the new split database. Would not work in the new database. .

I know there have been some posts going back over a year, but none of them fully solve this issue. For years, the best way to sync Outlook 2010(without corporate exchange server) to the windows phone has been to use the Google Calendar connector to get to their cloud and then onto the Windows phone. This had the advantage of doing two-way synchronization and working with the default calendar in Outlook (the existing .PST file).
Google fully discontinued this service on August 1. Microsoft does not have as simple a solution. The two options I've seen for cloud syncing are to use the Microsoft Hotmail Connector and to use Google App Sync. The Hotmail Connector does not work with the default Outlook profile which means than when an invitation is received from any email account other than hotmail/ it saves to the default calendar, and you then have to copy it to the hotmail calendar in order to sync. The Google App Sync requires a whole different profile with a migration which is an equally big headache or possibly greater. So, neither of these options work without making a lot of manual intervention.
I've been using a local sync program called CompanionLink to sync contacts, notes and tasks. It can sync the calendar but has a couple of disadvantages. 1) you need to manually sync calendar which is not good if constantly on the go and always want to have your appointments. 2) CompanionLink does not feed appointments into the native calendar so it won't appear on the loc...

Answer:How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

Frankly the best solution is to sign up for MS Office 365. The cheapest plan (Exchange Online) is $4 per month per user, so for $48/year, you'll get seamless sync of contacts, calendar, tasks, and if you choose, email and more, across Outlook and Windows Phone.
Not free, but works much better than Google's App Sync, the Hotmail Connector, and any of the local sync solutions, and it'll work great with any other devices you add in to sync with (since everything supports EAS).

Hello, I was hoping someone could help me with an Outlook 2007 issue a user has been having. Last week, our exchange server was flooded by a lot of e-mails, causing our users messages they tried to send out to fail and given a Outlook delivery delayed message for each. The issue was solved but I have one user who still has a delivery delayed mail in this inbox and upon trying to open it, Outlook crashes and if you try to deleted it, you get the message:

"One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match. To resolve the conflicts, open the items, and they try this operation again."

I was thinking this notification was in sync with the e-mail that was delayed, so I did a search and couldn't not find anything related to it. Any ideas on who to get rid of this troublesome message?

Here's the situation...Every week I ghost copies of our servers. Two Windows 2000 servers and two Windows 2003 servers. Each server has one Western Digital 80GB ide hard drive in a hard drive rack and there is one open rack for inserting the backup hard drives.

I use ghost 2003 on floppies, each is configured to run the ghost backup automatically. When I am ready to ghost, I insert the backup drive, insert the floppy disk and start the server. Ghost loads, backups the drive, and says ghosting is complete. I take the main drive out and replace it with the ghosted copy. The ghost copies for 2000 and 2003 boot up fine, no problems.


When I remove the Ghost copies and reinsert the main drives, the 2003 servers will not boot, but the 2000 servers do. This doesn't happen every week, and sometimes one 2003 server will work and the other won't. When they don't work, the servers post but for some reason don't see the hard drive (this is not the ghost copy). On one of the 2003 servers, I have figured out the problem. When the server won't read the hard drive, I would pull out the drive and reinsert it, fixing the problem.

Recenctly, the other 2003 server wouldn't boot the main drive after it was ghosted. I thought maybe the hard drive bay was bad, so I switched the hard drive out with a spare bay. Reinserted it in the rack and the server still couldn't find the hard drive during boot. If I stick the ghost copy back in... Read more

Our server crashed during the Backup Last night around 07:00 (in the morning). It was totally stuck when I came into the office this morning...

Now I have been busy all day finding out why the server was not starting properly. Every time the server got to the "Applying Computer Settings" Menu the server got stuck after 15-20 minutes.
I could start the server in Safe Mode. After several boots I found out that the exchange information store service is causing the server to get stuck, as soon as I start this service the server (SBS2003) hangs...

i have tried changing the database to running from access, and i have started fresh and re done the mail-merge letter but this is all to no avail as the same error occurs???

any ideas,
please help

Answer:Mail merge problem using excel 2003 and word 2003

There may be some bad data within the columns that may be causing your issue. Look to see if there something out of the ordinary within the dataset you are trying to use for the mail merge. I think one may be column headings with spaces in them and another may be where two or more rows may have meen merged in your spreadsheet.

Question: IP addressing

Hi all, I recently started trying to understand how networks are setup, primarily because of a school project I have to make in which I have to simulate the creation of a network from scratch in an enterprise, I donít need something very elaborate, just basics. Iíve read some useful posts on this forum and I thought I might as well ask something that I have not understand quite well yet. Iím supposed to include at least 200 PCs in the network Iíll simulate, so Iím thinking I should just use a single real ip address from an ISP on a router, then connect this router to five different switches, all of which will have 40 PCís connected to them, I guess this way the real IP address would be setup on the router and then I would be able to setup virtual addresses to every computer that is connected to a switch. Now my questions are:
1. Is it ok to use a single real IP address for such a high number of computers? The router would only really be connected only to five switches and Iím guessing it should be a very fast connection, like 100mbps or something.
2. Is it ok to setup the network just like that? Or do I need some kind of server or those layer 3 switches Iíve been hearing about?
3. In case I used more than a single real Ip address, how would I connect them? Would they each need a router? And in that case, how would the routers communicate with each other?
Any help would be really appreciated

Answer:IP addressing

1. You would most likely run out of bandwidth, I wouldn't do it that way, but I guess it really all comes down to budget and what the computer will be used for, but in general I would say you would need at least two connections.

2. No I think you should be okay.

OK at work my company changed our phone and our internet over to a T1.

So now we all have static ip addresses.

We used to have dynamic ip addressing.

Our problem is that we all are field service people and we use laptops because we are in and out of the office. But when I get home and use the internet at my place I have to go and change the network adapter properties to obtain IP address automatically, because I have Road Runner and at the house it is dynamic addressing.

Then when I come back to the office I have to reenter all of my static IP address settings to use the internet. So as you can see it is a real hassle.

My question am I able to set up say a different profile so I can just click on the connection that will suit where I am at the time? Also if so how.

All by the way we are using Win XP Pro SP2

Answer:Some help with IP addressing, please

What operating system is on your laptop?

If it is XP, you can set an alternative IP address using the same profile.

If it is Windows 2000, you can setup a different hardware profile, and it will prompt you prior to going into the operating system.

Answer:IP addressing

1. Yes, that is how most businesses operate. The router and switches would generally have a 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s connection between them, this is known as the network "backbone" as it is the channel all the data is routed down.

2. You need at least a DHCP server and a DNS server. These may or may not be built into the router, but I would recommend placing these services on a server to reduce load on the router. You will need at least one server anyway for a domain, and maybe more for other functions, so you may as well put DNS and DHCP on there.

3. Only need 1 IP for the company internet router.

BTW, 40 computers on 1 switch is a little unrealistic in terms of load. I would recommend at most 20 computers on 1 switch.

Use Disk Management and you can change drive letters around.BUT - If your Windows drive is F - then all you installed settings and programs know that - and if you tried to change it to C they would all be totally confused.So - basically you're now stuck with it!If you install another drive, it will normally select the first unused drive letter - which in your case is C - though that you can safely alter.How it happened in the first place is impossible to answer at this late stage.

What exactly is it? I heard that is was supposed to improve graphics performace somehow. Currently sideband addressing is disabled on my comp but if it increases performance, why would nVidia have it disabled as the default setting? Is there any danger of turning it on? Would I get any performace gain out of it?

Answer:Sideband Addressing

In some cases when a certain motherboard chipset is used, it must be forced manually (equivalent to the AGP drive strength bug prevalent in early VIA chipsets).

SBA doesn't provide too much of a nominal performance gain, as for the most part, it will compromise stability, though it should always be enabled (automatically) if the card is running in AGP 8x mode.

'Undisclosed recipients' indicates that the sender marked those addresses as 'Bcc' (BLIND copies) and not 'Cc', so you can only reply to the named sender of the email, and no one else that they also sent it to, ie you cannot reply to any of the 'undisclosed recipients'.

Company Network Info
Static public IP
Internal IP's in the 192.168.0.x range

My question is what, if anything, I need to do to avoid IP conflicts when a user connects via VPN from home? If a user is behind a firewall at home and is given a 192.168.0.x address, will that cause a conflict when connected via VPN. Would it be better to choose a difference address scheme for the VPN address pool?


Answer:VPN addressing advice

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish... And you going for a Network to Network (Site to Site) arraingement (i.e. a permanent connection between their home network and the office network) or a Network to Host setup?

If a Net to Net, then each remote network will have to be on a different subnet like you referred to in your post.

Otherwise, with a Net to Host design, the VPN device at the office will assign and INTERNAL IP address to each client via the client software (or MS's DUN) and it routes like that. This makes the Home subnet irrevalant

However, if I only put 3GB into it all is well except that Windows only shows 2814MB rather than 3072MB. Now since the VRAM also has to be addressed, that would be physical memory minus the VRAM of 256MB = 2814MB.

Hey guys, could someone please explain to me how the following works:

ISP provide Company A with Class C address of

Would Company A then use this IP address for the main router, and then all internal hosts use private address (e.g, etc) that channel through the router? (so all computers on the network will appear as on the outside line) Or can/would Company A use the range of for all hosts on the company network?

The way i see it is, if a host has to be reached on the internal network (i.e for someone wanting to connect to a terminal server from their home) then that terminal server will need it's own address ( rather than and all hosts that do not require access from outside the company network can use

Thanks in advance for your help!

Bear in mind that I'm a normal, non-IT computer user. My surfing habits are safe and conservative. As best I can tell, Anti-Malware applications seem to fall into three categories:1) definition, or signature based2) HIPS behavioral blocker, and 3) heuristic analyzerHeres what I'm currently running:1) Windows Defender, real time protection enabled.2) Webroot SpySweeper, shields up!3) Eset NOD32, advanced settings enabled.4) Microsoft Cloudmark Desktop (spam-filter for OE).Two questions:1) Are the three categories listed above accurate and comprehensive?2) If so, is there wasteful overlap or worse, gaping vulnerabilities in the global, synthetic funtion of the four utilities I'm currently running? To address this potentiality: a. Which should I remove? b. What should I add?Anti-Rootkit non-sequitur:1) given my rather average knowledge of computers, can you recommend a fundamentally sound, user friendly Anti-Rootkit utility that either a. tells me what to do with what it finds, or b. refers me to a database wherein I can differentiate between True Positives that need to go and False Positives that I can leave be. c. Sophos Anti-Rootkit seems to fit the bill. Opinions? i) does it shield as well as find&remove?Thank You,P220ST

Answer:Addressing Vulnerabilities Logically

sounds like you have a pretty good handle on your system and that your knowledge and experience are greater than my own. I have been focusing
on the firewall part of the equation and have found Outpost to be pretty good,although I do not feel I am thoroughly familar with it yet. Shutting down
all avenues of access, especially inbound, except for what you specifically
permit, seems to be the best first step. I am also pretty happy with Webroot.
I do not know enough to really comment further, but does your anti-virus have some sort of logging capability? Checking logs occasionally seems to be a recommended procedure. Thanks to bleeping computer for providing this forum.

I'm pretty new to networking. I have two desktop pc's and a laptop pc. I decided to set up a small wireless network so I bought myself a linksys wireless broadband router. While goin through the set up I kept running into this MAC address thing and was wondering what exactly it was and if it would be a good idea to set it up.

Any info is appreciated.


Answer:What is MAC addressing and is it a good idea?

Every ethernet network device has a unique MAC (Media Access Control) address. It is 12 bytes long and expressed in hex. The first 6 characters are the manufacturer ID, and the last 6 characters is the host ID. No 2 devices are ever supposed to have the same MAC address.

What you are coming across is the ability to filter based on the MAC address. When you turn it on only the wireless cards with the MAC addresses you specify will be able to associate with your access point. You should turn it on if you only want your own devices connecting. If you frequently have new devices on your wireless, then you would have to add the MAC's every time which can be a pain.

It helps with security but it does not protect against someone who really wants to get in. It is fairly easy to sniff the MAC's of your wireless devices and then clone them.

Having spent considerable time Google-ing this subject, and scouring for answers, I have decided to ask for the assistance of some brave and optimistic technicians.

I seek a Windows Hack that will allow 98SE to support 48-bit Logical Block Addressing. I have located one "High Capacity Patch" online:
I tried the demo version of the patch, and am not sure it really did anything significant.

It all started at the store, where I was hell-bent on getting one of those new WD 74gb SATA Raptor hard drives. Unfortunatly, it said on the box, only for XP/2000 machines. Being a die-hard 98 user, I was disappointed, and decided to "settle" for a WD 200gb IDE hard drive. Trading capacity for speed.

When I began to partition it for use as the master drive, I was held back by the 137gb rule.

24-bit LBA only allows the OS to see 137gb, and anything beyond that barrier is subject to possible corruption. I'd like to remove this barrier, and any input would be appreciated.

Here are my PC statistics:

Operating System: ver 4.10.2222A Microsoft Windows 98 SE
OS Service Pack: Windows98 SE Service Pack 1 (Unofficial)
Internet Explorer: 6.0.2800.1106 (IE 6.0 SP1)
DirectX: (DirectX 9.0b)
Utilities: Norton System Works '97
Alterations: X-Setup Pro, & E-Icons 98, + various other registry hacks

I have what is probably a basic, stupid user question, but I'm having a brain freeze.

I have a router that issues DHCP addresses in the range to I use other IP addresses outside this range for devices that need static IPs. I've used and I also have an extra router on the network with with DHCP disabled.

So I set a computer to use, and it doesn't connect. Am I missing something?

I am looking for a way to send one copy of an newsletter via email to multiple recipients and at the same time hide all recipients' addresses from each other.
I want to make it so everyone will see the mail was being mailed by me, and the To: field will only show their own individual addresses.

Is there a way to do this other than with specific software?
If not, any recommendations as to what should I use?

I'm setting up a network and it's conceivable that my DHCP server will need to assign more than the 220-odd spare addresses (after reserved IPs for the network kit) in the way I normally set up networks.

I have, therefore, set it up with a 24-bit ( rather than 16-bit block (

I've never grasped binary, and therefore IP addresses and subnets.

Should the subnet mask of my network be or, as I want to assign more than just the last byte as differing, should it be something different?

I can set the DHCP pool starting address ( and size (currently 253) - how can I safely assign more into the pool?

Answer:abosulte addressing in excell

I'd love to help, but you've confused me.I don't see how a simple multiplication (410*125%) requiresIF's and LEN's and A9's and F9's, etc.I'm not even sure how any of this relates to Absolute References.There has to be a lot that you haven't told us about your layout and inputs and outputs.Could you clarify things a bit?

The auto completion feature works fine in Outlook Express, but upon "sending" a pop-up list with similar addresses comes that forces me to choose the correct one (which is already in the address line). This is annoying and redundant. Is there a way to stop the pop up from coming?
