Preferred Solution: On the subject of typo's

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.)

I've always copied & pasted recipes into my e mail & mailed to myself,but now when I receive them they always say,"Spam***** before the name of the recipe I type into the subject line. I have Vista & Windows Mail. Any way to prevent this-it never did this before. Thanks, Rosebud65

Answer:Spam**** before Subject in Subject line

The "spam" classification is either being added by your email provider's spam filtering service, or by your security software's email scanner.For example, my Norton Internet Security email scanner is integrated into Microsoft Outlook. If a message is classified as spam incorrectly, I can click a button in Outlook's toolbar called "This is not spam", then a dialog-box opens where I can tick the option "always trust messages from this email address". The message is then moved to my Inbox, with the "Spam" word removed.Now any new messages in future from that email address will not be marked as spam.However, any messages I send to myself are never classified as spam anyway, so I don't know what's happening in your case.

I mistyped a url earlier (I believe i typed 'radiosahck' instead of radioshack) and was redirected to a strange website (something about internet surveys I believe) I closed it right away and did a quick scan with malwarebytes to make sure nothing was wrong, and it came up empty. I'm probably being a bit paranoid here, but is this anything to really worry about?

Answer:Odd URL typo redirect...

Redirects can be something to worry about, as you have no idea what content is being hosted on the re-direct. Most popular anti virus programs, have real-time scanning, where it's constantly scanning your computer, and as soon as you're redirected to a bad website, it will block any content that's harmful to your computer. I use Eset and it does this.

Question: Microsoft Typo

Microsoft made a typo in their WinSAT application, How can we let them know about it?

Answer:Microsoft Typo

Hi Steven,

You can try contacting them by following the link below. Whether or not you will get a response I cannot say. I have managed to locate the error in the 'WinSAT.exe' file (notice the space between the letters), and you can edit it to replace the erroneous 'o' with an 'i', however by doing so you will probably cause it to fail an SFC scan. In my opinion, it is such a minor error that it is probably best left ignored.

So I was browsing around in Windows Defender (Windows Settings > Update & Security > Windows Defender > Open Windows Defender Security Center > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings, then scroll down to Controlled folder access.)

The sentence "Protect your files and folders from unauthorized changed by unfriendly applications" has a typo in it.
(Refer to the attached picture)

Either:
? The word "changed" has a typo in it and should be the word "changes" (with an 's' instead of a 'd'), or
? There is at least one missing word in between the words "unauthorized" & "changed"
Somebody should inform Microsoft about this typo.

But Also: I noticed that this is a new option, since the last time I was browsing around in there. What does this option exactly do? It was originally off, but I turned it On. Yet I must say that I have seen a few messages pop up in the right corner of the screen, stating that Windows Defender blocked some programs from making changes. One of them showed explorer.exe from modifying the Favorites folder without me doing anything with Favorites. Exactly what does this option do? Is it kind of like some sort of strict "Firewall"? Because if so, then I like that.

Blocks access to your files and documents by unknown apps (malware/ransomware). It's off by default because not all 'good' apps are in it's 'trusted' list. It takes a bit of fiddling to get all your apps to work after you turn it on.

Hi can someone please help clear up my concerns because I accidentally interned the wrong DNS address on my new router.
After entering this typo I almost immediately that my connection was unstable especially on Linux and yesterday evening when I logged back into my router the DNS settings were set to there defaults. But I was able to surf the web kinda in Windows though it timed out often and certain webpages wouldn't even open, and now when ever I enter the correct DNS settings it disconnects from the internet.  
 
Here's what I entered
 
222.67.222.222
220.67.220.220
 
Instead of
 
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
 
I'm really feeling uneasy and stressed about this, any advice?
 
 
 
Why does stuff like this happen whenever your in poor health or any other of life's trials and complications?

Answer:Open DNS typo on router

Two things you might check:
 
1. In Windows, do your Network Properties have a DNS Server entry(s) that point(s) to your router (probably 192.168.1.1 or close) or do they point to the published OpenDNS IP addresses? Easy check: From an Elevated Command Prompt: ipconfig /all
 
2. After you corrected the DNS router entries, did you have the router do a cold reboot?
 
I believe you shouldn't overly stress yourself over this if you didn't make any financial transactions. But new passwords could be needed.

Memory corruption caused by an unknown driver. Please run memtest and driver verifier.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

F-Secure staff has found a malicious website that utilizes a spelling error when typing the name of the popular search engine - 'Google.com'. If a user opens a malicious website, his/her computer gets hijacked - a lot of different malware gets automatically downloaded and installed: trojan droppers, trojan downloaders, backdoors, a proxy trojan and a spying trojan. Also a few adware-related files are installed.

The name of the malicious website is 'Googkle.com'. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS WEBSITE! Otherwise your computer will get infected! We have reported the case to the authorities.

Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo? For example, I type "tsanding," and instead of changing it to "standing," it underlines it red. I know I can then right-click it, and select AutoCorrect > standing, so that, from now on, if the same exact typo arises in the future, in which I accidentally type "tsanding," it'll change it to "standing." I've thus far collected *hundreds* of specific typo corrections in this way. But that's very time-consuming, and is only a weak attempt at preventing typos I may be likely to make in the future (based on the fact that I made the exact typo at least once before). Is there any way to establish that I want Microsoft Word to go ahead and correct every single "underlined red" occurrence from now on, based on its best guess as to what I meant? (except in cases where the typo was so bad that it has no guess at all) That way, when it corrects something I *didn't* want corrected, I can then go back and add what I wanted to its dictionary, to tell it not to consider that word an accident from then on.

Answer:Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo?

Found this in the Word Help files. On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect Options. In the Replace box, type a word or phrase that you often mistype or misspell ? for example, type usualy. In the With box, type the correct spelling of the word ? for example, type usually. Click Add. Is this what you're talking about?

Answer:My Windows 7 copy looks counterfeit. Typo on back cover. Came from China (eBay). Pics

It's fake, that's pretty obvious. The hologram thing is most likely a sticker on top of the actual disc surface - you can use a fingernail or razor blade at the very edge and lift it up a bit, that's 100% proof. The part numbers don't seem to match up with the actual Windows 7 Ultimate part number, and it just has a fake quality all the way around.

If you contact Microsoft, show them the pics, explain where you bought it from and your situation, there is a small - small but it exists - chance they'll provide you with a key just for making the report and identifying the seller you got it from.

No guarantees, but at the moment you're better off reporting it to them and going from there. Sure can't hurt to let them know, either way.

I'd report it, personally, without even really thinking about it. It just SCREAMS fake.

I've got this computer given to me from a guy I know because he didn't want to do anything with it. He couldn't get any OS to install on it. I took it apart, hooked up motherboard, power, and cd-rom and installed Linspire (4.5.499) with no problems.

Anyway, I plan on putting this rig in my Jeep (I'll make a modified case). I am going to use it as a 2nd (more interactive) media hub (I've got a music/dvd player with screens). I want this PC to control a set of LED's to display custom messages on the back of my truck (that's the cool part).

Now, to my questions : I know next to nothing about doing my own circuitry (circuitboard designs/resistors/anode,cathode/power/ground). The led display I plan on making will be 5 x 20 (or so).

What type of LEDs (and or other hardware) would I need to make this circuit?
How can I connect this display to my computer?
How would I be able to control it? (I don't have a problem with coding - just not sure what programs I would need)

I guess that's about the end of it. I posted this in hardware because this requires a lot of hardware... and ... well - didn't see a better place to post. Thanks for all replies.

Just bought a disk in supermarket, Deus Ex Human Revolution. Looks good, never played it so thought give it a go. I installed it, well, I thought I had, all I have is an icon called steam and nothing else. There is nothing to point me to the game on the disk, no setup other than this steam!!

What the hell is going on before I return disc to store.

Answer:On The Subject of Steam

By the looks of it (1), Deus Ex: HR is a Steamworks (2) game - i.e. it requires Steam to be able to run (for DRM purposes). Presumably you can get playing if you fire up Steam, create an account, login and launch?

I haven't bought a boxed PC game for ages, but it looks as though this is the case.

We have a problem when we receive emails from the organiser of a club that we belong to. She sends out information about events, using BT Yahoo. What we receive is an email with nothing in the FROM, TO & SUBJECT columns, and the email itself is very hard to decipher. We can see from "Message Source" under "Properties" that there is a lot of control information missing. It starts off with part of the message, usually leaves out the first few lines, then there are loads of codes, usually with bits of the rest of the message in between the codes. Other details are:When she sends us the information personally, just to us and not as part of a group, no problemNobody else in the group except us has reported this problemWe've never had this problem from anyone elseShe uses Windows ME, and BT Yahoo for emails (not Outlook Express)The BT Yahoo account that she uses only contains the people in the club, so there is no group, everyone in the account's address book is on the email circulation list.Her ISP is BTInternet, ours is now Pipex (broadband) (used to be Freeserve, dial-up), same problem experienced with both our ISPsThis has us stumped.

Answer:Subject minimizes

Hello VentAcruZ,

Normally this is caused by a 3rd party application that isn't handling its "refresh" function very well. There's a quick way to see if a third party application is causing it:

Go to Start > Search.
Type "msconfig" > hit ENTER.
Go to Startup-tab > Disable all items.
Apply > Reboot.

When it's rebooted, try and see again if it does the same thing.
If it's gone, it's one of those 3rd party applications doing it, and finding out which one could be easy,and it could take time.

Normally it's caused by "Dock applications" or applications monitoring other applications or hardware. Basicly any application with an extra "dock bar" or extra "gui" that you can have visible. Otherwise you'll have to manually reactivate one process at a time (From the MSCONFIG > STARTUP view) and see which one is causing it.

If it doesn't help by disabling all 3rd party startup applications, let us know!

i could tell you a long string of events, but lets cut to the chase for now.

I am attempting to install vista, and am being told that i need drivers for my cd/dvd drive (WHILE IM USING THE DRIVE TO RUN SETUP)

i know there isnt any issues with the drive, or any reason for it to need any other drivers as evidenced by the fact i used it to boot, and am using it with my linux installation at the moment.

ive done some poking around at other forums and found a few suggestions that i dont know how to put into practice

Answer:issue too complex for a subject

Reading through your system specs, I came across:

description: DVD-RAM writer
product: CDDVDW TS-H653R
vendor: TSSTcorp

Googling TSSTcorp, I found that it relates to Toshiba
One link is http://www.softwaredriverdownload.com/category/companies/tsstcorp

Googling CDDVDW TS-H653R, I came across lots of links for this device and drivers.

I suggest that you Google both Vendor and Product (as per above) and I think you will be able to track down the correct Vista driver (even though your CD/DVD still works, MS doesn't think so).

If you still can't solve your dilemma, come back here and I am sure that a proper Hardware Geek will be able to help.

A subject like; "Touchpad stopped working on S7-392 after Win10 update" gives users a lot of information quickly, and if there is a larger issues, other S7-392 users will find your content and help highlight the scope of the issue.

In the last few weeks, I have received dozens of e-mails with no subject and no text, but with an attachment.All from supposedly different people, as there is only a name in the 'from' area. When I check the properties of the name, all the e-mail addresses are just a jumble of letters, but are from all over the globe.I have not opened any attachment, and used the BLOCK SENDER facility for all of them.I have tried creating a mail message rule, but there is no facility for e-mails with an empty subject line.Can I create a rule for this, and are these attachments possibly dangerous.Any help gratefully received

Answer:SUSPICIOUS e-mails with no subject

They are usually ads for sex enhancement productsIf you do not know who they are from or they have no content marked- simply delete unread.Actually as these scammers are up to all sorts of trick to circumvent our protection methods it its best to remove your E-mail programs from the start group.Look at your mail on line in your ISP,s web mail section, delete it what you don't like the look of there by sending it to the 'blacklist' or block boxthen when only the genuine stuff remains come back to your desk top and run the E-mail program.Then only the stuff you approve of will come in.Once it is in close the program so that no more uninvited comes down the wire.All long winded but is the only sure way of stopping the stuff

I have started getting emails with no sender information or subject.I am of course deleting themBut anyone know how they get through like that and wht they are.Thanks Lorna

Answer:emails with no sender name or subject

You are doing the correct thing by deleting. Best to be safe than sorry. If you are getting your standard email okay, then I would suspect that it is another form of spammers introduction, hoping that you are going to respond, which will then leave you wide open for a spammers paradise.

For some reason the input box is missing from any new email I send which means I am sending emails with no subject which I don't like to do.Incoming messages show the subject in column view but not when I open the email.This has only started recently, last week I was able to enter a subject with no problem

Answer:Missing subject input box

Did you try View...Message Header?Turning off the Message header will hide the Subject Line in all messages in your InBox.However, turning it off in a e-mail you are composing usually only impacts that email. At least that's how it seems to work in 2003.Maybe it's different in 2000. Give it a try and let us know.

I am still trying to work my way into PHP. And this must sound really stupid but for the fact I'm only a beginner, but I don't understand how, if you put the name of the .php file in the Action box of your email form and not your email address as in "mailto:myeamiladdress", how does the .php file know which email address to go to?

Answer:Forms and PHP -same subject, new thread!

Because your email address is in the PHP file. At the bottom, you'll see:mail( "my email address", "Form Message",$mail_message, "From: $name <$email>" );

For instance, it could go through the mailfile and archive anything with the word "support" in the subject.
