Question: I don't see "reset your phone" option in Settings>about in Nokia 820

Hi Guys,
I have faced some issues with Windows 8.1 demo. So i have done a hard reset on my mobile.
I was happy that the mobile came alive and was running cool but then i found that the contacts from my outlook were not copied to the phone as well i was not able to add email accounts to my phone except microsoft's outlook which was enabled during the time of fresh startup. so i tried a lot juggling around it then finally gave up and decided to reset the mobile again.
So here i confronted the issue. I don't see "reset your phone" option under Setting >> about.
SO i saw some other option called "update demo content". i dont know what it is, but just i clicked on it and the phone started updating some stuff and then i came to know that its a retailer's package which make your phone one like we see in the store... running automatic videos and stuff.
i'm totally annoyed by this.. guys please help me ... i'm just freeked out. :(

Preferred Solution: I don't see "reset your phone" option in Settings>about in Nokia 820

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.)

:( How did you perform the hard reset ? and where did you get that device / software from ?
Google 'Nokia Lumia 820 Service manual' ...
at the very end of the manual, there is a key combination to perform a hard reset. It'll wipe EVERYTHING & start fresh (probably WinPhone 8.1, though) else use NSU to fallback to WinPhone 8.0.

The "Idle-time Full System Scan" in Norton 360 v4 is bogging down my computer constantly, and there is no option to turn it off in "Automatic Tasks".

I contacted Norton and (after several attempts to find someone at Norton who could understand what I just said above and getting "hung-up" on over Norton chat. Inexcusable!!!) I was able to get a hold of a technician who told me that Norton intentionally removed this option "for security reasons, because they didn't want people turning it off".

The problem is, people will then be forced to turn it off by turning off ALL scheduled tasks (under "Settings/Scheduling/Schedule:Manual Schedule") and that is an even worse security problem than the relatively small one that would be created by turning off idle-time full system scanning.

Once the system has completed a full system scan, all files are on-access scanned anyway, so running a full system scan every 3-4 days is rather silly and extremely annoying--especially, because it will continue to try to run every time the system is idle if you cancel it.

A warning urging the user to not turn off idle-time full system scans without fully understanding the risks, and after explaining the risks, would be VERY preferable. Or at least the option to run the full system scans when the system is idle on a certain day of the month/week! The schedule for idle-time full system scans really needs to be separate from other tasks. In fact, t... Read more

Hi all
Previously the  "Save Picture"  box would put a web generated title in the box and automatically selected JPEG.  Now the title box reads "untitled" and the only file options offered are "png" & "bmp" 

Please note that a similar post has appeared, but the solution did not match the fault.  I'm seeking to restore the automatic response to save picture, that might have been upset by antivirus clean-up programme.

I recently built a new computer and installed Windows 10 Pro Creators Update (version 1703) and just noticed that I have never had icons for Phone or Cortana in my Settings. These settings are also not available in the search bar within Settings. See attached screenshots below.

Since I've heard of issues like this resulting from pirated software, I'd like to clarify that I purchased and downloaded the OS directly from Microsoft and installed it onto a brand new SSD and have had no issues with the machine once I got the overclock stable.

Thanks in advance for any and all tips!

Answer:No icons for "Phone" or "Cortana" in Windows settings

If you like you can update to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using either Windows Update or Windows 10 Media Creation Tool this will resolve your problem.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

On my Target cartwheel app, it does not give me the option to scan product on its list of promps. My husbands Apple phone has it and no associates at Target can answer this question as well. HELP!!!!

Answer:Why can't I get "scan poduct" option on my target cartwheel app for my windows phone

The "App" on Windows Phone is just a web wrapper (a means of showing you the mobile version of the full website). As such it does not leverage any APIs (application programming interface) to hook into any hardware.
In plain English... It does not support camera function, thus no scan.

My guess is its defaulted back to another output on that card. I have three monitors on my GT 640. My BIOS splash screen and the Windows splash screen display on one monitor (DVI), and the Windows logon screen etc display on my main monitor (HDMI). It does the same thing whether I set Windows to single monitor or extend. I haven't tried it with just the HDMI monitor plugged in by itself though. Normally they should all go to the one monitor that's plugged in. If I get a chance latter on I'll unplug my two DVI monitors and see what happens. There is no guaranty that it will do what yours is doing but it will be interesting to see what happens just for future reference for me.

Answer:Windows 10 what exactly is the option under Display settings: "HDR and advanced color"?

The quick answer is that HDR (High Dynamic Range) allows for more colors and better color depth. Most new UHD Blu-Ray and UHD TV's support the HDR standards.
That said, good luck trying to figure out the Windows 10 implementation of HDR. I have my PC (with and nVidia GTX 1050) attached to my Vizio P75 TV. Enabling HDR on both my TV and Windows dims the display some, makes the text seem blurry, but video seems fine. If I play and HDR video from say YouTube, am I really seeing HDR quality? Frankly, I don't know.
HDR comes in two formats - HDR10 and Dolby Vision. My TV supports both. Blu-Ray supports HDR10 as the UHD standard with 10 bits per channel color support (over 1 billion total colors). Dolby Vision is optional on Blu-Ray with 12 bits per channel color (over 5 billion colors).
However, there is very little information on setting up HDR and support material. I did a lot of research in the past few weeks on the subject, but it's so new there doesn't seem to be any good definitive test video. Watching UHD non-HDR and UHD HDR video sample both look excellent on my TV. In fact, one UHD Blu-Ray (Rocky Mountain Express) is not in HDR actually even though it claims it on the box.
How can I tell? The only way on my TV is using the included smart remote and going to the Display Information setting. From there I can see the framerate (24p for example), resolution, and whether HDR is active or not. But is it HDR10 or Dolby Vision? There is no way to know.
Even though movie studios a... Read more

A couple of weeks ago I installed the Windows 10 Pro N 1703 (15063.413) as a new clean installation, i.e. not as an update from an earlier version.

Yesterday I thought I would go through and check the privacy settings once again. I watched a couple of Youtube videos on the subject and saw that my Feedback & diagnostics settings differed from the ones in the videos. My settings page does not have the "Let Microsoft provide more tailored experiences with relevant tips and recommendations by using your diagnostic data" setting!

This is how my "Feedback & diagnostics" tab looks like:

I did some searches and found this article:
Turn On or Off Tailored experiences with diagnostic data in Windows 10 Windows 10 General Tips Tutorials

There you can read the following:

--------------------
To Turn On or Off Tailored experiences with diagnostic data using a REG file

The .reg files below will modify the DWORD value in the registry key below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Privacy

TailoredExperiencesWithDiagnosticDataEnabled DWORD

0 = Off
1 = On
--------------------

I then checked the above key in my own registry and it has the value of 2!

Why am I missing the "tailored experiences" option in Privacy settings? What does a value of 2 mean in the registry? Is this something that has to do with me using the N version?

Hopefully someone can shed some light on this...

Hi guys!
I'm using a computer with MS Office 2003, since i have all customized in the Office XP my computer has.... i wanted to know if the ".ops" file that i have created with "Save My Settings Wizard" on Office xp will work with no trouble for Office 2003.

Answer:Compatibility of "Save My Settings Wizard" option

Be careful about relying on the 'Save My Settings Wizard.' I've tried to use it to transfer my Office2003 files/folders and other settings from XP to a new computer and it did not work well. Some random settings were saved, others were not, and who knows if there were any corruptions or problems that I don't even know about. My best advice is before doing anything, back up everything on a separate device (i.e. memory stick, external hard drive, etc.) so that you can recreate your files and folders if you have to.

So last night I downloaded Windows 8.1 RTM. I have several Windows 8 machines I wanted to upgrade.
Device #1: Acer W3 810 - No issues what so ever. I upgraded in-place and I was able to keep all my applications and settings.
Device #2 Surface Pro - Was not able to upgrade because I wasn't getting the "keep settings, files, and apps" option.
Device #3 Custom built desktop - Was not able to upgrade because I wasn't getting the "keep settings, files, and apps" option.
Device #4 Custom built desktop - Was not able to upgrade because I wasn't getting the "keep settings, files, and apps" option.
Device #5 Samsung Ultrabook - Ran the update, also did not get the "keep settings, files, and apps" option, but went ahead and upgraded with the "keep files" option. Have to reinstall all applications again.
So has anyone else ran into the issue of not getting the "keep settings, files, and apps" option and was able to resolve it?
If there's no solution, for my two desktops and Surface Pro, I might have to wait until it releases through the Windows Store. I'm fine with that, but wouldn't mind having it now.

Answer:After Reset, Cannot get past "Link your phone and PC"

Make sure you do not have any external USB Mass Storage drives attached to your computer, like your Phone.
You can download Belarc Advisor or Magical Key finder to view your Windows Product key.
Your product key should be installed in the Bios and you should not need to input it. if you download the Windows 10 ISO 1709 and burn it to a USB Flash drive with Microsoft Media Creation tool or Rufus, in my signature. You can boot from that, choose your Language and choose Repair Your Computer. If that still fails. then you can do a Reinstall.

Hi

What Windows version and Service Pack are you using?

What is the make and model of your PC? if a laptop or netbook then look for some makers Wireless management software say from DELL, Intel, ACER etc as if its installed that could be conflicting with your Windows Wifi Management.

Look in the System Tray for any wifi icons and discount the Windows one, but look for others, also look in add/remove for Wireless Manager apps and uninstall.

I have never noticed my iPod or iPhone or iTunes causing any issue in relation to Wifi yet.

Dear all,

I just upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, and since then I have found that I cannot send some files from my Nokia Xpress Music phone to my laptop. I am using a Fujitsu s6520 Laptop.

I have successfully paired the phone and PC together, but whenever I try sending a file from my phone to the laptop, the file transfers for about 3 seconds, then the "sending failed" message appears, and the laptop says the transfer was cancelled. I have tried transferring a 128kb file, and since that fully transferred in under 3 seconds, transfer was successfully completed.

I am able to synch perfectly from PC Suite, but in device manager, my phone is listed as "bluetooth peripheral devices" under "Other devices", with an exclamation mark next to it.

Can someone please help solve this problem?

PS On a side note, I didn't have to click the "receive a file" button for the phone to start sending a file in Vista. Is there any way I can get around this in Win7?

I had several hotmail accounts that I could view in the Nokia 930 windows 10.
I have not installed any apps (however there wsa an app that I do not know what was doing there with the text showing @\user\microsoft\windowsapp\ etc. the text was longer an I was not able to remove the app)
However the problem of the emails did not arise after the above app was mysteriously installed but happened before.
It looked like that one specific account was inexplicably confused with another email account...e when I was tapping on one Icon app of hotmail account I would actually read the email of another account.
My main Email setup account within windows phone setup had disappeared and when trying to re added it was saying that it was already setup.
Therefore I could only but hard rest my phone. I have hard reset it four times now and every time I setup the account with my main Email account everything is fine but when I add another email account it all goes wrong with similar variations of the above issue and now I even have an error message saying the account the I added
Now I am getting has the settings out of date. I tap FIX button there is some activity but nothing happens.
How can I fix this!!!

Hi Friends, Today I learnt that there is a check box option "Tell me when updates are available for my phone" in settings, if we follow the below steps:
1. On the Start screen, slide to the left.
2. Tap Settings > phone update.
3. Select the Tell me when updates are available for my phone check box.
4. Choose whether you want to allow automatic downloading of updates if your data settings allow it. If you disable this option, your phone will only download updates over Wi-Fi or when it's connected to your computer.
But unfortunately I dont see it in my phone(HTC 8X) any idea why? Any other HTC 8X owners see that option? Google search screengrab of someone's HTC 8X

Hi,

I'm using Windows 10 th2-10511 x64 and when I install EMET 5.5 final the EMET system service is installed with the "delayed start" flag and the service and never starts after a reboot. The same thing happened with the beta version, I didn't notice
it until the final was released. This issue doesn't occurs with EMET 5.2.
I switched the service back to the normal Automatic (not delayed) start, and everything seems to be working again. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this issue?


Also, can someone enlighten me about this warning message "DEP/ASLR Policy settings are ineffective by default; see user's guide on how to enable them". It appears when I enable the DEP/ASLR EMET GPO. I couldn't find any reference to this warning
message in the user guide. DEP seems to be enabled, I have no idea how to check for ALSR other than Process hacker that shows ASLR as N/A.

I added a slave drive to my Windows XP Pro computer, and it appears to work properly.

However, when I open the "Documents and Settings" folder (on the slave drive E:\, which is Windows XP Home Edition -- not XP Pro), I do not see any of my documents, sub-folders, etc. There should be MANY sub-folders (inside the "My Documents" folder which isn't even visible), with hundreds of documents, jpgs, etc. within it.

When that drive is installed as the Primary drive in my other computer, the User "Larry" (which is me) has all Administrative privileges. On the computer that I'm running now (with the slave drive in it), I also have Administrator privileges. I own both computers.

My User Name "Larry" is password-protected when I login to Windows (when the drive is Primary and installed into my main computer (not this computer with XP Pro).

I've tried clicking on all the users; Administrator, Default User, Larry, Guest, etc. (Note: I get an "Access Denied" error when clicking on the Guest "Documents and Settings" folder).

So, the questions are:

1. Why can't I see any files or subdirectories in the "Documents and Settings" folder on the slave drive?

2. There's supposed to be a folder named "My Documents," but I can't find it. Normally, that path is "C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents".

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

We used to have "stereo mix" option that enabled streaming audio recording without having to have the audio playing through the speakers. How do I do that now? What replaces that capability? Who makes my sound card? Why is that not readily available somewhere in Dell land? I can't believe forum searching found pretty much nothing on this.

Answer:Latitude E6530 Windows 10 no "stereo mix" option for sound input device, only "high definition audio device" with Microsoft driver and unknown manufacturer.

aj_chicagoWho makes my sound card?
Hello. The audio chip manufacturer was IDT.
aj_chicagoWhat replaces that capability?
IDT doesn't have "stereo mix", so I'm not sure how you used to have it on the E6530. IDT has an equivalent capability that it calls Rec.Playback. That can be found in the list of recording devices, after the IDT driver is installed.
aj_chicagoHow do I do that now?
Dell doesn't support audio on an E6530 that has had Win10 installed. The IDT company went out of the consumer audio business long before there was a Win10 OS, so there is no Win10 IDT driver for that model. Your computer is currently using the Windows native audio driver, which, as you say, does not support a stereo mix kind of feature.
You should be able to install the IDT driver for Win7 by installing with compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  [There are two "formats" on the driver's page. Scroll down to the 2nd one, named "Hard Drive" format, and download that one, not the 1st one named "Windows Update Package".]2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4.

I bought a computer back in December with Windows Vista 64-Bit Home Premium. I set most folders to "view list" and either "sort by date modified" ascending or "sort by name" ascending. It seems like most of the time when I go to a folder after having changed another folder's "view _____" or "sort by _____" or ascending\descending settings regardless of of what directory it's in, the folder will have changed to different "view by _____" and\or "sort by _____" and\or ascending\descending settings. Anybody know of a fix? Thanks!
 

Answer:Vista and "sort by _" and "view _" folder settings changing from what I set it to

Welcome to probably the most irritating Vista problem in existence. Microsoft has not even acknowledged that this is a problem yet the web is absolutely overrun by people complaining about it.

The problem is there is left over XP code and the folder settings are stored in 2 places, one for XP and one for Vista. Also, the automatic folder 'sense' that Vista has, where it determines the contents and adjust the folder accordingly, effects it. Those 3 registry keys basically fight over the settings. I've actually had the folders reset, then go back on their own before. Basically the fix that people have the best luck with is erasing the XP keys, increasing the 'bag' size, to store more folder information, and to disable the auto sense. You then have to manually set folders to Music, Pictures and Video, etc...

1. Go to Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization -> Folder Options.
2. View tab -> Uncheck Remember each folder view settings.
3. Press Reset all folders, then apply to all folders. Press apply, then OK.
4. Run the following registry file. Copy this text into a Notepad file. Save it as 'all files', so you can add your own extension. Name it something like Fix.reg ... it will appear as a registry file that merges with the registry.

Code:

Hey,
I have a HP Pavilion notebook. A bit older I think. It had built in windows Vista Home Premium. Somehow my hard disk crashed and I bought a new one. I installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and updated to service pack 1. I made a system image using windows default recovery console. Everything was fine. But today I needed to restore my computer to a previous restore point. Every time I press F8 to get to the advanced boot option I see everything is okay except the "repair your computer" option. Somehow the "repair your computer" option disappeared. I tried ctrl+F11 button and the F11 button too. F11 button worked for my previous vista home premium but for Win-7 it's the F8 key. Can anyone help me with this please? How may I get the "repair your computer" option back? Is there any way to edit advanced to boot option to get that option back? I would be needing it in case of system image recovery. Please I don't want to reinstall the O/S once again. Please somebody help me.

Answer:Advanced boot option doesn't show the option "repair your computer"!

On my clean OS install, the "repair your computer" option also does not appear in the F8 Advanced Boot Options list.
The option does appear on my ACER PC.

You can access this option by booting from a System Repair CD/DVD. A system repair CD is a must have.

I haven't played around with different screen resolutions to see if it has any effect.

I wonder if it needs some driver update or related to my screen resolution or whatever? Thanks.

Answer:display settings only shows "Small" & "Medium"

I really don't know, but the Nvidia driver automatically makes some adjustments, depending on what it is installed on. I suspect that they feel no one would want the large text on a small display.

I do have my WiFi internet working, I can access internet all right. But if I go to Windows 10 Settings and then try to open "Network & Internet", it takes forever and it does not load. While that happens, performance temporarily decreases, even Synaptics touch pad has some freezes/jumps. Eventually performance gets back to normal, but "Network & Internet" is still unopened.

Also, if I click on the WiFi icon on Windows 10 Notification Area at Taskbar (at the bottom right of the screen), it does not pop-up, or it pops-up with an empty list of available connections (instead of a list that would have a dozen connections, including my own). Just to click on such icon triggers a Taskbar freeze. So, after that, I can't make Start button to work, I can't use the search field, I can't make any Taskbar icons to pop-up. My only way out is to open Task Manager, finish "Windows Explorer", go to File then create a new task with "Explorer.exe". Then Taskbar is good again, but I can't touch its WiFi symbol on Notification Area, or else Taskbar will freezes.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

I may not be asking this question correctly, and I know the phrase "recover" might throw some people... so let me see if I can describe my question better.I have a Compaq Presario V2000 that runs Windows XP (version 2002, Service Pack 2). I'm considering giving it away, donating it, or otherwise disposing of it. I'd like to re-set everything so that when I boot it up the next time, all the software, files, settings are exactly like they were the first time I booted it up. In other words.... I want to wipe out all my files, cookies, credit card info, etc. I don't care about backing up anything; I just want it all to be like it was when the thing was new.BTW, I did a search and couldn't find any threads that answeredmy question. But, when you're as "computer dumb" as I am, sometimes asking the question is the hardest part. 

Answer:How do I "recover" the computer back to "out of box" settings?

What you are wanting to do is often called a reformat, or a clean install. With your computer, you should have had a set of discs that came with it. Find the one titled Operating System, put it in your computer, and restart. Go through the set up. Note:This will delete all your data... which, if you have not backed up, could be a potential issue. Also, if you stored any secured information on the computer, you may consider waiting for someone to recommend good hard drive "shredding" software before donating it. A physical removal of all data can be done to the drive if you plan on destroying it.

if you did the hard reset and the messaging app is missing, first check for updates for OS and updates for apps in store. If there's nothing, do a hard reset again

Hello all. First time poster, forgive me if this issue has arisen before, but it's kind of a difficult one to search for.
A few weeks ago, I installed Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview on my Nokia Lumia 1020. I subsequently dropped the phone, broke the screen and had to send it off to my insurer to be repaired. I was not keen on my photos etc. being on my phone during this time, so I reset the phone (through settings -> about -> reset your phone).
I got the phone back today with a shiny new screen. Reset it again, entered my account details, and restored my settings/data. But all of the Nokia apps on my home screen, including Nokia Camera, now have an exclamation mark icon in the top right hand corner. When I click this, it says that the apps are no longer available.
In the about menu, there is no mention of Lumia Black. In short, my phone seems to now be running standard Windows Phone 8.1, with no Lumia add-ons. Has anyone else had this problem, and does anyone know of a solution? I really hope this isn't going to be permanent. I suspect I'll get an unsympathetic ear from Nokia on the matter too, when it's in the Developer Preview T&Cs that you may void your warranty by installing it.

Answer:Installed 8.1 Developer Preview -> reset phone -> phone not recognised as Nokia

Open store >> downloads >> ... >> manually check for updates. That would update all the apps on your phone which have a ! mark
Download SysApp Pusher, update all Nokia System apps using it, you'll see Black in the extras+info after installing all updates

Guys

I'm not sure if I've posted the right at the right place, but still........ I want to know that "" How do I change the "Open Settings" found in the Computer tab of the File Explorer to "Open Control Panel" ""

I have a screenshot of that:
I want to change it because I have a habit of having that "Open Control Panel" there as in Windows 8.1 for the reason that the Settings is just an app reference to the original Control Panel and many advanced settings are referred to Control Panel.

And I'm lazy to type "Co" everytime in Cortana to open Control Panel.

But I haven't bothered. Instead I found Control Panel in the Start menu's 'All apps > Windows system' and pinned it to Start. The advantage of having it pinned to Start is that a right-click on the tile shows a 'Recent' jumplist for it, all your frequently used Control Panel settings in one convenient place.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

I can't figure out how to make multiple IP/DNS/Gateway configurations depending on the network I'm on.

When at home and at a friend's, I need to set manual IPs.

When not at home, I need to have DHCP. How can I do this on Vista? I know that under the IPv4 network settings you can set the information there, but that applies to all the networks the computer knows... not just a single network. Is there a way to do this? I have the Ultimate version.

Not sure this will work, but it's worth a shot I think..
Restart you device and boot to safe mode. Then you go to the proxy settings, and turn it off. Double click LAN settings to see if its completely off. If it worked log off safe mode, boot normally and check if that did actually resolve anything..

HELLO,
I was using my Nokia Lumia 520 to browse internet, then power went off, when i tried loggin back , but the message i gives on my screen is, "try again in 779396 minutes, emergency call only"....i can see messages come in, but i cant open them, i can receive phone calls, but i cant make any call, i cant even get anywhere to type my passcode to open it up.
I cant wait for those forever minutes to access the phone, is there a way to gain access please?
Kindly urgently advice,
Ban

Answer:my nokia LUMIA 520 MESSAGE ON SCREEN IS: "TRY AGAIN IN 779401 MINUTES"

The power went off, you mean like the battery died or you accidently turned it off? Also did you try shutting down your phone and restart it? Just press and hold the power button for a few seconds and then swipe down when it says "slide down to power off" If that doesn't work then try removing the battery from the phone (after you shut it off of course) wait a few seconds, put the battery in and power on the phone.
Lastly if that doesn't work you will need to do a factory reset of it. This is important you do it last since all of your data will be deleted and the OS reformatted.
Step 1. Turn off your phone then press and hold the power key until it vibrates then release.
Step 2. Press and hold the volume down key. If the exclamation mark will be shown on the screen, you can now release the button.
Step 3. You need to input these key combination:
Volume Up > Volume Down > Power > Volume Down.
After that it'll reset your phone. Which it is guaranteed to work.
