Preferred Solution: easy note

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: easy note

You should have an option somewhere on the Summary Page - Open Easy Note, connect your iPhone. On the Summary Page, uncheck the box "Open Easy Note when this iPhone is connected."

Question: Easy note taking

Scene setter: I am disabled, have been a heavy user of my PC to write, communicate etc --and a lot of WILFing- and now need to take notes electronically. It is painful to sit for long periods due to spinal fractures, but have started studying with the OU. It is most comfortable to recline in an armchair or bed. I want to continue using the PC for bigger stuff.

1 If I get a cheap n cheerful laptop for this it will have Vista installed, when my PC has XP. Will they be compatible? What should I do about that?

2 Besides WiFI (I have a broadband connection) I don't see that I need anything else. Any suggestions - general please, no adverts!

3 Could this be kept for making notes only? It would only need to be connected to the printer then. Would the printer be upset at the two platforms?

4 I had thought of getting a small keyboard such as the Targus to make notes etc, to be printedor transferred. This would need memory etc though?

If you can reply to any of these questions you will make a student very happy....and less painful!

The two operating systems will be compatible.

Are you having issues writing as well? If not maybe look into a tablet PC that will allow you to draw figures and the such as well.

3 Could this be kept for making notes only? It would only need to be connected to the printer then. Would the printer be upset at the two platforms?

You can share the printer via the wireless network, but it is not very secure.

4 I had thought of getting a small keyboard such as the Targus to make notes etc, to be printedor transferred. This would need memory etc though?

I am not quite sure what you are asking about here.

Hi guys,

There is something that happens occasionally when I am typing. Whether in a text program or typing in a messagebox on a forum, it can happen.
Hope I can explain it clearly.
OK lets say I am typing a paragraph, and (I can't type properly, so once in a while my fingers stray to the wrong keys), so after I accidentally hit some key combination, the following happens:

If I go into the previously typed paragraph, and let's say I want to insert a word, when I type, the word will appear, but will not "move' the text over, it will overwrite it. Typing more will just overwrite whatever I have already typed.
I should be able to insert a word or any text in there and the previous text should move over.

I would have to start the page over again, and everything seems ok. I KNOW it is a key I hit accidentally, or a key combination. Otherwise, like typing here everything seems fine.

What could I be hitting that would cause the new text to overwrite the previous text?
Hope I have explained it well.
Thanks in advance, Gary.

So I bought this USB PC-to-PC Transfer Cable. I have a laptop for downloading files and I work on my PC. I'm constantly having to move the large files using an external HD. I figured I would rather just connect the two computers via this USB cable and transfer my files that way.

No more: plugging in to laptop, transferring to external HD, unplugging from laptop, plugging in to PC, transferring from external HD.

Much simpler in theory I'm afraid. Unfortunately, I have only found "Windows Easy Transfer" which assumes I'm transferring to a new PC which involves clicking through a few senseless screens before I can clarify I'm only moving 2GB and not 200 GBs. Once you start transferring it's SO SLOW. I don't know if this is the Windows software or if transferring over a USB PC-PC cable is going to be REALLY slow no matter what. I have also tried using my Ethernet cable but it only transfers at 1 Mb a second which is even slower.

Does anyone know if there is an alternative program I can use that's faster and just for simply transferring a few files (like windows explorer) ? Or is there a way to boost that Ethernet transfer speed? Otherwise I'm going back to the External HD method.


Answer:Alternative To Windows Easy Transfer? (USB Easy Transfer Cable) Maybe Ethernet?

Re: Alternative To Windows Easy Transfer? (USB Easy Transfer Cable) Maybe Ethernet

I do transfers, sometimes in the GB range myself. I drag and drop between USB sticks/external drives and the machine's HD.

I found that TeraCopy gave me measurably better speed transfers on large files. I don't use it for small copy operations as it seems to be a bit slower in some cases. TeraCopy works thru a context menu, when you drag and drop, you'll see options to copy/move with Windows native setup, or you can select TeraCopy move or copy.

Uninstall with this is easy, no problems, so a test drive may be worth your time...

I purchased a Compaq Laptop running Vista. I am attempting to tranfer files from my old Laptop to the new one using "Easy Transfer". My old Laptop is a Qosmio F15 running XP. I'm using a Linksys WRT54G router. Successfully burned a CD with the program as directed by "Easy Transfer", and placed in the Qosmio disc drive. No problem establishing a connection. During the tranfer however, the connection keeps dropping....only a few minutes in. The Qosmio is the one that displays the icon that indicates the dropped connection. Can this be fixed, or would I be better off getting a cable?


Answer:Easy Transfer Not So Easy...Help!

Hi First-DT. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support.

I myself have never used the Easy Transfer to actually transfer files as I keep most files on external drives. From what I read in Microsoft kb928634, an active network connection between the two systems is 1 or 4 methods that can be used. To assure file integrity and security (meaning having a back-up), I would suggest that you utilize one of the other methods mentioned in the kb to get your Vista system up and running. Once you are satisfied with the file migration to Vista, you can always come back and re-open the issue with your other system.

Are you looking to transfer alot of files? Is there more involved than just pictures, music, etc...? Please keep in mind that any installed programs from your old system cannot be transferred and will have to be re-installed as new under Vista.

Regards. . .

I have a w520 a  for which I created the system recovery disks.  1 boot DVD and 3 "Media" DVDs.  Now I want to put new hard drive in but those "easy" recovery disks are not so easy to use. ThinkVantage seems to load from the boot disk.  Then a dialog comes up that says "System Recovery Options" and select a language and a keyboard input method.  So I click next. Then another dialog comes up with two choices. 1.  Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows.  Select and operating system to repair.  If your operating system isn't listed, click Load Drivers and then install drivers for your hard disks. 2.  Restore your computer using a system image that you created earlier. So I must choose 2, right?  But when I click that another dialog (Re-Image your Computer) comes up that says:  Windows cannot find a system image on this computer.  Attach the backup hard disk or insert the final DVD from a backup set and Retry.  Alternatively, close this dialog for more options.  What?  So, since the dialog says to insert the last disk, I inserted the 3rd "media disk" and hit retry.  Nope.  Now what?  

Answer:"Easy" recovery not so easy. Help!

I'll never understand the theory behind "recovery discs" and "recovery partitions".  Who wants to restore back to the way the system came from the factory?? For me, the right (and only useful) way to backup the OS+active partitions is with "system image" (multiple generations), and a perfect product such as Macrium Reflect (there is a free version, but I support them by buying the Personal edition which has some nice addtional features). For optimal convenience the backup target device should be an external USB 3.0 drive, not a secondary "backup" partition on the internal hard drive as if the drive goes south your backup goes south with it.  You want external secondary media for a backup.  I've got three Verbatim 2TB USB 3.0/2.0 drives on my three PC's, and have installed five others on machines for friends and family. For convenient "data" backup/restore for data on C and other partitions, a proper "data" backup software product like NovaBACKUP is appropriate.  Macrium Reflect can also do "data" backups but its user interface is not great, so I use it only for "system image" backups.  NovaBACKUP can also do "system image" (of a proprietary form) but its design is not great, so I use it only for "data" backups. Bottom line: whatever you use, you don't EVER want to "go back to factory" as your "recovery" from problems or from a disaster.  You want to have absolutely current (and automatically taken) backups of your operating system ...

Have you installed a toolbar or something? Some get installed when you installed other software. Also, what browser do you use? And does "" open at startup of the browser?

1. Go to the settings of your Internet-Browser. Try to find the place where you can select which pages will be opened on startup.
2. Change it.
3. Done! is also not a used domain right now. As you may see; the page tries to sell you the domain. This means that the domain is registered, but not used currently.

Answer:Note to Self

You are seriously under - memory. Only 256Mb means that there is a lot of swapping to the hard drive going on. I'd bet the hard drive activity light stay pretty much on.

I would suggest going to at least 1Gb of memory. If you can post the make and model I might be able to be of more help. If it is a no name brand then what make and model of motherboard please.

1.6Ghz can run OK with enough memory.

Also you should be running SP3. Once the memory is upgraded and it is running OK then that should be the next step.

Question: A net for a note

Yes, I, the big shot here, have a question for you. :P

Let's start out by saying, my netbook; light, superb battery life, enough "umph" to run the basics.

The thing that bugs me about it is; The screen being only 10.1", a little small for viewing webpages; It's not like "sloooow", just want it a little bit faster, higher than max 2GB RAM and Atom processor.

I currently run Ubuntu on it, yet it is still a bit slow. As much as I have learned to like Ubuntu, it really isn't working on here. Works great with my HDPC, EeeBox EB1006HB, though.

Can I, perhaps, sell my Eee 1005HA netbook, for ~$100, and give ways some of the money for a new one?

This is what I'm looking for:

At least a 15" LCD
Intel i3/AMD equivalent
Any capacity HDD/SSD
As long as the battery lasts more than 1 hour, I'm happy.
Windows 7 Home Premium is fine.
I think everything else is standard.

Price I'm looking for is max $500. This is not a gaming laptop, a simple on-the-go PC.

Please stay in Newegg.

Question: One Note

I know OneNote 2k7 used to have a "Print To Onenote" plugin, and i cant for the life of me find this. I've been in need of pulling in PDF's to some of my notes and i cannot figure it out.

Also, how does Onenote react if i move the notebook directory? I want to move it to my dropbox folder (other stuff in dropbox so changing that is a no-go), so i have easy access to my notes on my desktop.

Answer:One Note

When you install OneNote there should also be a OneNote printer driver and you simply print to that. Also a notebook directory can be anywhere, just move the notebook directory to where you want and open it from within OneNote and it should become a tab on the left. In windows 7 I simply pin OneNote tee the tank bar for quick access.

Also suppose I want to make a Web Note, how would I Copy it to paste it as an answer to a question on someone's Forum.

Example: Someone asks: What was the date they first manufactured product X?

This sounds like a dumb question, but here's the background.

My daughter's XP laptop crashed (trashed hard disk that I doubt we can rescue much data from) and so we got her a Windows 7 computer. Unless we can rescue much of the old data from crashed XP, she's pretty much starting off empty.

Except that today I discovered on an external hard drive the "Easy Transfer" of her account from 15 months ago, from a computer she shared at that time, that was used to "port her up" on the XP laptop. So in theory, this "Easy Transfer" archive should have all of her data and files from 15 months ago.

But although the archive LOOKS like regular Windows folders and files, on closer examination, it's not. For example, I know there are jpg and .doc files, plenty of them, in the mix, yet all I see is lots of shortcuts to such files.

Is there a way, without running Windows Easy Transfer (I don't want to mess with her now running and configured Windows 7 laptop), to turn the Easy Transfer archive into a source from which I could copy over selected files and folders onto her new machine?

Answer:Can an Easy Transfer archive be used/read without using Easy Transfer?

Easy transfer sometimes is neither easy nor a true transfer. It is basically to transfer files (data) and settings (configurations). It can however leave you in an in-between state with some of each and neither of both.

It may be easier if everything works according to plan, but can be much more... Read more

We get a fair number of emails as you can imagine, and we try to respond to all of them (although at busy times some slip past us). I'm seeing more and more replies to AOL users bouncing, and this is no doubt the result of AOL's silly and draconian anti-spam measures. If you have emailed me from an AOL adress and haven't had a reply, that will be the reason.

Answer:AOL users please note

I have today posted this note of complaint to Oftel click here I would recommend everyone who has encountered this to post a similar complaint. I don't yet know if they have any jurisdiction, but a large enough volume of complaints may make them take some notice anyway. ------------------------------------------------- AOL have instituted a "SPAM" blocking regime, which routinely blocks legitimate and legal non-spam emails from private individuals and businesse to AOL users. Their policy/technology blocks all emails from specific ISPs when inuse - not merely those shown to be containing "SPAM". I know this to have been applied to all emails from Wanadoo Spain at one time - and have reprots that it has been applied to other ISPs, including UK based ones. I feel this is unwarranted and illegal interference with legitimate communications traffic, and would like to see them told to caese this policy and fix their technology. -------------------------------------------------

My PC was running flawlessly for about two months now, and then yesterday I came back to find my computer off. I turned it back on and when it got to the desktop, no task bar items started, and all of the .ink shortcuts on my desktop wouldn't display icons, just the broken icon icon, if you know what I mean. Anywho, when I went to start any program, it would either ask to use the web service to find what to open the exe in, or just open it notepad. Why note pad works and no other exe does, I have no clue. Any ideas?

Answer:Exe's open in note pad?!?!

Right click on the EXE and LNK file association patches on this site, download them to the desktiop and fully unzip them (they will have green .reg icons).

Then double click them to merge them to the registry and see if they resolve some of these problems.

If you get an error, note it exactly. I'ts possible the registry association may be corrupted as well. If it is follow the pages instructions on running regedit and use File > Import to import the .reg files.

Time is Running Out for Win 2K users.


Full, free support for Windows 2000 officially ends on June 30th, 2005. After that deadline, the both client and server versions of Windows 2000 will go into the "extended" support cycle, where they will charge for it.

Last year, Microsoft announced that there would be a security-centered update rollup instead of releasing Service Pack 5. The rollup is going to require Service Pack 4 as a prerequisite. The update is due in mid-2005, but so far there has been no news on its progress.

Under the Microsoft's terms of support, they will only provide security-related patches during the product's extended support cycle. Non-security fixes are only available with a hot-fix agreement plan. Anyone without this service will not have access to these updates.

Windows 2000 is still the operating system of choice for many people and businesses. As this product moves into its extended support cycle, Microsoft is urging customers to migrate to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Question: Note on Codecs

Hey all,

I just recently reformatted my machine and performed a restore of the data that I had backed up, including my multimedia content.

I now find I am having difficulty playing many of my MP3 files and even MPEG video files as well.

I have a couple of quick questions: Is this simple a codec issue, or perhaps an issue with the files after restore?

Also, is there a way to tell Windows Media Player to find codecs (Other than the "Download Codecs Automatically" setting - which obviously hasn't worked), without installing an entire program with more media players and tools, etc.

I took a look at some codec packs as - All I want is the codec to be used in WMP, I don't want any more software.
