Preferred Solution: MS Clipper Tool Disapeared

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: MS Clipper Tool Disapeared

I guess you mean the snipping tool. It has probably simply disappeared from the Start menu so type snip in the Start > Search box. Snipping tool should appear above.

Hey i have a large .mpg file and i want to clip a section out of it. Do all programs need you to re-assemble all the parts before you play? I want to take a playable section out and delete the at specific start and end times and everything and then have a playable piece. I did a google search and there seems to be TONS of "editors". And they seem to do so many other things it all seems really complicated to go through all the programs. I would worry wich ones have spyware or would de-stabalize my system if they're done by amateurs.

Any Suggestions?

This is freeware. Not to hard to figure out.

I am running a clipper program on a novell network, and my client machines have been running on Windows 95/98.
I have been operating with the following line in the autoexec.bat :SET CLIPPER=E:00;F:250;SWAPPATH:'C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\'

I have a machine that is not running on Windows XP, and i have no idea where to add the above line, or how to make it work..
each time i try to run that program i get the following error "Unrecoverable Error 5311; cannot create VM swap file"
where do i set the variables in Windows XP?.


Answer:Need help with clipper program!


Go to C:\windows\system32, and edit Autoexec.NT and Config.NT there is where the environment variables and DOS configuration must be set, every Dos Box that is opened will use the values within this files.

Don´t expect to see them if you type the SET command, but they are initialized and the clipper program will read them.

Question: Yankee Clipper III

I don't know why, but I can never seem to understand the software instructions. I can get stuff to YC by highlighting it and clicking Edit>Copy, just like usual before I had YC. (I am surprised that the instructions don't say how to get stuff to the Clipboard.) But then how do I paste the stuff, say, in a document I am composing in MS Word? If you don't mind, I need the instructions you would give to a kindergartener. Thanks, grandpaw

Question: Yankee Clipper fix

My YC has been dropping clippings. The YC website had me download a fix for that. Where I am now is that I have renamed to old YankClip.exe file to read YankClip.exeold, and now my YankClip[1] folder shows that old renamed file with a MS icon and the new file with a YC icon, just as was the case with the old file before I renamed it.

The YC instructions tell me to “Get the ZIP, stop the program, rename the old EXE, and finally copy the new file into the installation directory”. I wasn't sure at what point I was supposed to stop the program, I presume meaning the zip program, and how I was to do that, so what I did was to rename the old EXE first, and then download the new one without interrupting the program

Does what I did amount to “copying the new file into the installation directory"?

Since YC dropped clippings only sporadically, I am wanting to find out now if I did the fix right rather than just wait to see if the dropping problem happens again.

Thanks, grandpaw7

Answer:Yankee Clipper fix


From what I'm reading, when they say 'stop the program', that may have been the YC program, not the zip.

The way I read it is as this..

Download the zip. Stop the YC program from running. Rename the exe to old, either like what you have done, or as YankClip.old, then open the zip, and extract the new exe into the same folder.

Is that what you did?

Answer:ca-clipper 5.3b for dos/windows

OMG! My first job in the computer field! I was the install guy for a point of sale/accounting software for specialty gift shops, which was written in Clipper for DOS. Had to setup that program on point of sale computers for the front, and in the workstations in the office for the accounting part. They kept using the DOS version til past Win98 days, when I left that company. When I first got there they were using Artisoft LANtastic for the networking, on coax.

Pig of a DOS program, had to learn the art of fine tuning config.sys to get conventional memory up past 600.

The owners of the software company used to raise pit of them came to the office every day, sorta the mascot of the office. His name was Clipper.

Anyways, I'm not a programmer, I'm a networking guy, but from what I remember in the days before I left that company, the programmers there were having a hard time migrating their program to a native Windows backend.

I believe Clipper for DOS remained for DOS
and one of the projects designed to migrate it to Windows almost made it..

I maintain some legacy programs written under dBase and compiled with Clipper.I have a couple of problems when running under some versions of Windows ? especially XPNormally the key-code for the left arrow key is identical to Ctrl-S> - both, when tested with a utitlity, are correctly shown as being ASC 19However, when running in a virtual DOS environment, while the left-arrow key works fine, the Ctrl-S> is ignored. I assume that Windows is intercepting the code for some other purpose.Using the Properties of the desktop shortcut to the DOS environment, I have tried various combinations of Compatibility (for Windows) and disabling the Windows Shortcut keys, but no still solution is found.Secondly: the programs frequently use the higher ASCII codes to build boxes on-screen. These generally work fine, but on occasion ? and I can find no reason for why this only happens sometimes ? the characters get mis-interpreted and produce other graphics characters.Would be grateful if anyone knows a solution ? especially to the key-code issue - or even just a pointer to someone who might know.Many thanksDr Philip Ramage

Answer:Clipper Summer87 Question

Answer:BackDoor-CJO, AD-Clipper & downloader-OX

I was seeing McAfee return Downloader-OX and two other adware / virus threats. If you will look in the far right of the McAfee notification window (at least with McAfee Enterprise Edition) you will notice what applications are causing you the trouble.

I couldn't see anything in my startup files - either through regedit or Hijackthis! - I simply deleted the infected files (which turned out to be mplayer.exe and TELNET.EXE) and Windows XP restored them.

I'll let you know if I run across anything else, but I seem to be running clean. McAfee seemed to catch the infection before it spread, but everytime I ran Media Player the virus seemed to try and reactivate. Telnet.exe seemed to be automatically being called at points, but after deletion and recreation I haven't seen the problem return.

This issue must be new enough to not have very many posts. McAfee's VIL was no help whatsoever

After getting my new XP computer, I downloaded the clipboard utility Yankee Clipper, which I used a lot on my older computer. However, I found out I downloaded the wrong version rather than the one I wanted and was used to. So I uninstalled it yesterday morning and instead installed the version I wanted. Then, I got to messing around trying to get YC on my startup and Quick Launch. Somehow, I messed things up so that YC wouldn't work. So I attempted to uninstall this second version of YC (the one I wanted). Add/Remove went through the usual procedure as though the uninstall worked fine. But it didn't. YC was no longer in Add/Remove, but it was big as life everywhere else although it still worked poorly. Then, I used System Restore to go back to yesterday morning before I uninstalled the version I didn't want. I wanted to start all over. So I tried to uninstall that version so I could newly install the good version. But now the bad version won't uninstall. When I try to do that via Add/Remove, I get a Wise Uninstall error saying "Could not open INSTALL.LOG file.

I have no idea what to do now. For one thing, I wonder if the error message means that the Add/Remove program now won't work for anything, or if that error message just applied to YC. I've thought about downloading free uninstaller but I prefer not to do anything till I can get some expert input.

Thank, grandpaw

I have used Yankee Clipper for a number of years now and it has been a great deal of help to me, largely because of its simplicity. But after I got XP the YC icon on my System Tray started to disappear, not always, but when it did I couldn't find a way to get the YC window to display. When I would click on the YC icon on my desktop or go to YC in Windows Explorer, I would get a message that YC was already running and to look at the System Tray (where the YC icon was no longer there).

YC told me that the problem must have something to do with XP, but couldn't say what. YC suggested that I click Ctrl/Alt/Y. That sometimes brought up the YC screen but not always. It didn't restore the icon to the System Tray.

I wonder if anyone has a suggestion as to what might be the problem and how I can solve it.


Answer:Disappearing Yankee Clipper icon

Perhaps it's not in your startup and should be (and used to be)?

Hit Start-->Run and type msconfig and hit enter.
Go to the Startup tab.
Do you see anything that resembles Yankee Clipper?
If you do and it is NOT checked, check it.
If you don't, reinstall Yankee Clipper. See if you're asked if you want it to start when Windows starts (or to put an icon in the system tray) and say "yes".

I want to ask about porting / converting ancient (20 years old!) dBase / Clipper source code and files to Modern Windows XP environment.

Should I use Codebase and re-compile the program for Microsoft C?

Is there any other better / simpler ways to port text only applications?

Thank you.

Answer:Porting dBase/Clipper Source Code And Files

Are you asking if there's any way of automatically converting the source code or you asking whether you you should rewrite the application. Codebase will not convert an XBase DOS program to a windows program. From what I understand Codebase is a library that allows you to manipulate XBase databases (DBase, Clipper, Paradox etc) with a windows language such as Visual Basic.

Answer:Help! DVD-ROM Disapeared!

Welcome to TSG popcornprincess

There are several ways to fix this problem. Let me list you the most simple ones.

1. Restore CD/DVD Drives to Explorer

2. Copy the code below into a Notepad file and then save it with a desired file name. But make sure that you change the extension to *.reg from the default *.txt.





Double click the file and answer Yes to the prompt. Reboot.

3. If you find the above just too complex for you to understand or you are just too lazy to do so, then download the file included as the attachment. Open the zip file and double click on the *.reg file. Answer Yes to the prompt and you are done. Reboot.

4. You can also manually edit the registry but that will be a very daunting task. Instead, I recommend you to stick with the above three methods. But if you want to do it by yourself, then I am including the link.

Hope that helps. Good Luck.

HI there

I have a problem with my cd drive that has disappeared from both my computer menu and the shortcut icon, I have looked at the device manager and my cd drive is listed, I have then looked at something called the bios and the drive is again listed. I tried to fix it by using the Microsoft fix tool, it said that this problem could not be fixed

I then tried another fix which entailed myself going into the registry and deleting the upper filters and lower filters, the lower filters were not there but I deleted the upper filters to no avail. I then tried to both do a system restore and to uninstall my anti virus and reinstall the anti virus software to no avail either. I then tried an anti virus scan but nothing appeared as a virus, I then tried to uninstall the cd drive in the device manager, windows vista reinstalled my cd software but it still has not appeared.

Before this past week I've never had a problem, internet was working fine. On Monday there was thunderstorms so I shutoff my PC before hand. The power went out. When it came back on everything was fine except my LAN Connection said i was disconnected. I went through whole process of plugging and unplugging. I tried multiple ethernet cables which I know works for my buddies PC so it can't be that. I just tried reformatting (reinstalling just the ethernet drivers before that).. no luck so far.

Could the hardware (ethernet jack) be fried on it now? If so, what's the process of replacing that?

In anyway regard, what do you guys think?

Answer:LAN connection disapeared

Since you have verified that the cable is good it probably means your NIC or whatever is at the other end of the cable (router, modem, switch ...) is fried. Try another computer with the same connection and cable; and try your computer on another connection to be sure.

If it is an integrated NIC you disable it in BIOS or Network Connections and install a PCI card (desktop) or PCMCIA or ExpressCard (laptop). A USB ethernet adapter can be used with either, but is less desirable (less reliable).

I've had a small network going from my Windows Me PC to my Windows 2000 laptop for a few months using a crossover wire and today I set up a wireless network. It was working perfectly (apart from having to disable my firewall to let it work) and everything was communicating fine. I was fiddling with different settings and when I looked at the entire network on the PC (desktop>My Network Places>Entire Network) there was nothing there, not even the workgroup and the PC itself! Other things I noticed was that since I set up my network whenever the PC starts up, it asks for a microsoft netmeeting username and password (I just ok it and it goes), but when I restarted the computer after the network disapeared, it didn't come up.
The hardware seems to be ok (it says the NIC is ok in the device manager). When I plug a cable from the back of the PC to the wireless router, it has a good connection and there is nothing wrong with the laptop's connection (the wireless card is communicating fine with the router). When I look in the workgroup that the PC is usually in on the laptop, it has disapeared from there too.

Does anyone know what might have gone wrong and how I can get the network back up and running on the PC? Also if anyone knows how I can stop the microsoft netmeeting username and password box coming up on start-up on a long-term basis, I would be greatful.

Best regards,

Matthew Dingley

Hello, I really, really like Metro/Modern UI design and finally I became new user of Windows 8.1. In those couple of days I was happy getting used to my new OS and I didn't mess with configuration but from out of friggin nowhere something terrible happened to my bottom bar.
It was like this:
Now it?s gone (Auto-update changed something?). And when I want to pin programs I got this menu:
And I hate that pop-up window abomination, it disgust me. How to reverse it?
WP Central community please, help me.

Answer:[Help] Out of nowhere bottom bar disapeared

You've updated to Windows 8.1 Update 1, which is a new update! It is more suited for desktop users, you will now only get that bottom bar if you are on a touchscreen device. You'll get that Windows Explorer context menu if on a desktop or laptop.

Answer:disapeared file

Try a reboot ... and see if there is any change to your free space. If not you could try rebooting into safe mode, do a search if you know the name of the file, locate and delete it. BE CAREFUL THOUGH, if it is a sys file, you may end up with more problems than lack of space.
I had a similar problem, the folder contained 2 gig's of sys volume info from another disk, I deleted it, with a lot of problems!!

It has happened once before on my old laptop and someone has fixed it for me saying i must have deleted some registry key. I cant however ask them for help this time, does someone know what's going on? thanks

Answer:Pop up balloons disapeared

Are you talking about the balloon tips on your taskbar at the bottom right?
If so, the most direct way I can think of restoring them is downloading TweakUI.
(The download is in the right column).
After you install it, go to start, (all) programs, powertoys for Windows XP, TweakUI. Go to Taskbar and Start Menu and check the box enable balloon tips.
There may be a more direct way if you know the exact registry key off the top of your head though

I tried the ctrl esc to get the taskbar back, but no use. Even the task manager didn't open. Even when I click the right click the menu doesn't open. What could be the problem?

Answer:Taskbar disapeared and nothing's responding

Hello Mikadina, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like explorer is not running.

Press the CTRL + Shift + Esc keys to open Task Manager.

In Task Manager, click on File (menu bar) and New Task (Run...), type explorer, and click on OK. This will restart explorer for you.

If Task Manager will not open, then press and hold the power button on your computer case until it powers off, then press the power button to restart the computer. This would be a hard restart.

Hope this helps,

I upgraded to windows 10 from 7 on April 21st on my Toshiba Satellite computer. Since then I have downloaded photos from my iPhone and created new word documents using windows 10. This morning I open my computer and the desktop has gone back to windows 7 with all my old icons. But my computer is still operating windows 10 as the blue tiles are there in the left corner of my screen, Cortana etc. I just cannot find any of the new files that I created with windows 10!! I have searched everywhere, I have even called Best Buy Geek Squad and they have no clue. Can anyone please help? I need these files back, they are priceless photos of my kids

Answer:Windows 10 files disapeared

It sounds like your local profile did not load properly and computer restarted with temp profile (which too quickly displays a notification that all files and changes will be lost when signed out). Hopefully, you did the downloads from your iPhone to your admin profile with the normal desktop. Try this - Click Start/Sign out or Switch User. Find your normal admin account and sign in. Your desktop should replace the minimal desktop.

In the future, I would NEVER place files on my desktop. I would put them in a This PC folder like Music, Pictures, Documents, etc and place shortcuts to the folders or files, NEVER the actual file, in case something like this pops up. I have had it happen to me occasionally with a failed program or update install where I find my normal desktop has changed.

Also, if the files are 'priceless' they should be IMMEDIATELY backed up to a usb stick, ext hard drive or a cloud, like OneDrive or Dropbox. Good Luck.

I have been using McAfee site adviser for some time now with no issues. I have FF 3.6.20 on a Tough Book running XP SP3. Suddenly today no site adviser in the bottom right.I checked windows explorer and the program was still there.
Did an uninstall, restarted, and a reinstall from SA web site. Still no SA in FF.
Opened an IE window and SA is there.
I do not know the version of SA. Before and after the uninstall and reinstall there is an Add on in FF Add on window that says Site adviser 3.3.1 will be installed when Firefox is restarted. Don't know how long that has been there but it doesn't do anything no matter how many times Fire fox is restarted. Also, there is no disable or uninstall buttons for this add on. Just a cancel button. I clicked this but after a "are you sure you want to cancel?" box nothing happens.
I searched Google and see problems with newer versions of Firefox but no mention of 3.6.20.
Did some update come along that killed Site adviser with FF 3.6.20???
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have no clue why SA 3.3.1 is sitting in Extensions as a ready to be installed item.

Hi, I've read many posts on this subject but haven't found anything similar to my situation. I installed Win 10 and chose the obliterate everything option because I wanted to start anew.  Everything went well and the touch pad works EXCEPT the advanced features such as scrolling.   When you look at the Control Panel --> Programs and Features, the Synaptics Software Icon is missing. (In Win 8.1, I could open a Synapics program and adjust the TouchPad.) If I go to the Device Manager, the Snyaptics HID driver is there and updated per HP support Assistant.  I tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling, but no change (strangely, the touchpad worked with the driver uninstaled). I checked the Registry, but there are very few Synaptics entries (3 or 4) leading me to think the Synaptics Touchpad program is missing. The Synaptics website does not offer any downloads that HP doesn't offer.  I thought I would be able to download the proper program, but maybe I was mistaken.  I use a mouse, so this fix isn't critical, but it would be nice to fix it. Any ideas? Thanks, Larry

I have a problem which I can not solve. At 10:14 I opened a word document. I proceeded to type about 1000 words over 4 hours. I was saving as I was going and syncing to google drive.

Then the window just closed. When I reopened the 4 hours worth of typing had gone. The file had reverted back to 10:14 version I initially opened. I've searched for restore, backup, temporary files looked in Google all versions are at the 10:14.

However, not one for going mad when I next opened word it wanted to send extracts of errors to Microsoft. In the list was sentences that came from my four hours of typing. I know this to be unique to this file because of its content.I did manage to find one fragemnt of a temp file which had a save at 10:18 with about three extra sentnaces.

So my question is what happened is there any chance of getting back the lost typed information?

The address book on my lap-top running XP and aol does not exist anymore, also it does not auto-suggest an email address even when I've added some manually. My other computer also on aol has no problem in this respect and all settings are the same. I've tried asking live help numerous times to no avail - they just cant help. This is my first time on here so am hopeful one of you knows what the solution is.
