Preferred Solution: Icon Creation

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.)

Question: Icon Creation

Hi I needed to create a icon for a Link that were pushing out to our company. I created the link and made an icon picture and it looks good. When i start to transfer it to different computers on the domain it doesnt retain the picture. Would anyone know how to fix that?

Answer:Icon Creation

Well the icons pic. Needs to be somewhere acsesable by the computers in the domain and the pics path needs to be to a centeralized location in the server network so that it can display it. Or you could just pu the pic somwhere on all of the computers that the icon is on.

This may not be the right place, but I'm hoping even if it's not I can get some advice.

I would like to find a program that will create a group of internet shortcuts on a PC desktop. I need to give people access to a number of pictures and documents stored on a website. I would like to make it very easy for non-technical folk to have access to them by remotely creating the shortcuts for them. Preferably, by sending them an email with a link to a program or with an app. Any advice would be appreciated.

I just got my new T440s system and when I turn on/off the Fn lock, or mute/unmute speaker or microphones, a small black box always appear on the screen to show me the state of these functions. It will disappear after several seconds. But I want to know how to make it not appear because there are already LEDs on the keyboard to show me the real time state of these three functions. (I still want to keep the Caps Lock icon) As I remember, after I powered on the system in the frist time and finished the Initial settings, a setting window showed to ask me if I need these icons appear or not and seems I can also decide the appearing location of these icons. But I cannot find it again! If someone knows how to disable it, please give me a feeback. Thanks in advance!

Hi.
The code below will do the following if you have a table set up in WORD:
1. Sequence down a column of cells one after another while:
2. being given the choice to embed a selectable pdf file from a File Open dialog popup after which
3. the embedded object is displayed as a icon ( icon set always same set in code)
4. goes to next lower cell and repeats from step 2
5. keeps doing this until you click Cancel in the File Open dialog box

My question is how do I make the icon conform a set size after it is embedded? Right now I have to go back and resize all the icons after I finish the embedding. I think the trick is to use a 'With' loop but haven't figured it out yet. Here's the code. Thanks for your help:

Ok, this just happened recently and I don't know what is causing it. I'll try to give u a brief overview of the situtation I'm in. XP used to be on my D driver (74gigs), it got screwed up (BSOD) at the time, I didn't know as much computers, so I installed XP to my C driver (4 gigs). This has worked pretty fine up until when SP2 was released. I can't install SP2 because XP takes up about 4 gigs by itself. Without SP2 I just have been running some extra firewalls so compensate.

Well about 4 days ago, I noticed whenever I open up my computer it takes like 7 or 8 seconds before the hard drivers appear. Then I went into network connections to look at my internet icon (to check the settings). I opened it up and nothing was there. The only thing there was on the far left it was asking me if I wanted to setup a network ( my internet is working on all the computers). I have ran 2 different spyware scans and found nothing, ran mcaffee scans and nothing. I can't restore my computer because all the restores got deleted when I was trying to free space on my drives.

Where do I go, usually I can solve tech problems but I mean this is beyond weird? What do I do first, if you need more information just ask because I really need some advice.

I'm having a big problem. I screwed something up with my taskbar and I can't undo it.

I logged on as usual. An annoying message popped up at the lower right corner of the desktop, above, not in, the taskbar, alerting me to something I should download and install that I have no intention of downloading and installing. In the past, each time I've logged on and this message has appeared, I have simply clicked on "cancel" or just clicked the X at its upper right corner. But this time, I must have taken leave of my senses! Instead of just right clicking the X in its right corner, I clicked something else on it and a message window popped up. That message window advised me to either "download" the irrelevant auxiliary toolbar I have no need of and will not download and install, or click "cancel". But it also offered me the chance to click a checkbox next to "do not show this message again on taskbar". At least that's what I recall it said. So I clicked on that, in an attempt to keep it from popping up every time I logged on (removing the annoying message from the action center each time it popped up upon logon never had the effect of preventing it from popping up again the next time I logged on, which is why I tried this "do not show ..." choice this time).

But once I did that, I found I am no longer able to make two things work on my desktop taskbar with the customary left clicks.

 For two months I've sometimes seen an icon towards the lower middle part of my screen.  When it appears, the icon always stays in the foreground.  It's similar to the Caps Off icon that appears on the right.  This new icon is the same size and is also a black square except that the white symbol it contains looks like a half circle with lines projecting down like rays of light.  There's a slash across the symbol just like the slash on the Caps Off icon. What is this icon for and what can be done to remove it? I'm running Windows 7 on a E430 Lenovo ThinkPad. Thanks.

Answer:Strange icon appears (similar to the Caps Off icon in shape and color)

Hello and welcome,
 
That sounds like it's telling you that the ThinkLight is off - but I don't find any confirmation that your laptop even has a ThinkLight.  Odd.
 
You can try a right click on the desktop, Screen resolution, Advanced settings, and see if there's anything about that in the On screen display tab.
 
[edit] On machines that do have a ThinkLight of around the same vintage as yours, Fn+SPACEBAR toggles the light.  On earlier laptops it was Fn+Page Up. You might try fiddling with those keys.

This is a problem that started with the last windows update (which included an update for my wireless network adapter which I have since rolled back).

My setup is as follows: I have a dual band router. The 5Ghz band's SSID is (for example) Testg and the2.4 Ghz band's SSID is Testg2.

When I click on the network status icon and hover over the Testg connection, it shows the SSID as Testg2. When I go into the Manage Wireless Networks and open the properties for this connection, it shows the SSID as Testg.

I have fooled around with renaming the connections as all of a sudden one showed up as Test 2 3 with the SSID of Testg

Currently I have three connections listed in manage networks: Testg, Testn, and Test2. Testg and Testn (Testg was previously Test 2 3 renamed Testg) and Testn (previously named Testg renamed to Testn so I could rename Test 2 3) both show the SSID being Testg. The Test2 connection shows the SSID of Testg2.

Looking at this information by left clicking and hovering over the connections on the network status icon, they show as follows: Testg shows an SSID of Test2, Testn shows an SSID of Testg, and Test2 shows an SSID of Testg2.

Why is the SSID different for the same connection depending on where I look at it and is there a fix for this?

Thanks.

bruce

Answer:Network status icon and manage networks icon show different SSID

Well, due to other issues (thank you Cnet download for installing all kinds of malware on my computer with the program I was trying to get), I had to use a system restore to get rid of something that took over my computer and it also fixed this issue. I used a restore point from before the Windows update that I installed.

I don't want to combine my windows, but when i have only one window open in any program, i know what it is and don't need to see the label as that makes the whole taskbar filled up pretty fast.
Is there a way to hide labels when there is one window open, and show labels when having multiple windows?
I've tried googling it but it doesn't seem like it is possible with some program either.

Answer:Taskbar, only icon when one window, icon+label when multiple windows?

Hello!

I have just setup my new laptop with Windows 10 Home and installed Dropbox. I noticed that the Dropbox folder icon is offset compared to other icons. The folder part of the icon is more towards the top than all other folder icons. See this image:
Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

I know it seems like a small issue, but once I saw this, I can't unsee it, and it annoys the heck out of me

So - I designed a new icon. It is basically the same, but with the position fixed and the Dropbox-logo is a flat design. If anyone is interested, you can grab it here:
Dropbox - dropbox-fixed.ico

It looks perfect when changed - BUT, once you restart the computer, the Dropbox folder icon reverts back to the default. I tried it several times.

So I was wondering if it is possible to change the icon elsewhere. Maybe in the regedit somewhere. I don't know enough about that stuff to mess with it.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

When I first installed Windows 10 on a virtual hard disk (vhd), nvidia drivers for my gtx 760 installed automatically by Windows 10 and the icon was very smooth. Later, I had to do a fresh install of Windows 10 on a Samsung Evo SSD and this time, it didn't install my graphics card driver automatically, I had to download it from nvidia's website. Anyway, how can I improve the look of this icon and make it smooth?

Hello!

I have just setup my new laptop with Windows 10 Home and installed Dropbox. I noticed that the Dropbox folder icon is offset compared to other icons. The folder part of the icon is more towards the top than all other folder icons. See this image:
Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

I know it seems like a small issue, but once I saw this, I can't unsee it, and it annoys the heck out of me

So - I designed a new icon. It is basically the same, but with the position fixed and the Dropbox-logo is a flat design. If anyone is interested, you can grab it here:
Dropbox - dropbox-fixed.ico

It looks perfect when changed - BUT, once you restart the computer, the Dropbox folder icon reverts back to the default. I tried it several times.

So I was wondering if it is possible to change the icon elsewhere. Maybe in the regedit somewhere. I don't know enough about that stuff to mess with it.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

Answer:Change folder icon - maybe through regedit (Dropbox icon)

No one who can help me?

After a driver (I think one related to Intel graphics, but i am not shure) was unsuccesfully installed, I had a BSOD problem, hard restart, kernel error message (unable to reproduce it afterward). Some applications from taskbar partially work (Office, Skype), some not.
I am unable to open the Start menu (but the right click still works). The Edge disapeared, I post from anothe PC.

I have some files that I'd like to burn onto a DVD... how do I do that? I currently only have Nero, and if it does convert the files into DVD format, I haven't figured it out. Any help? Thanks...
 

Answer:AVI or MPG DVD creation

Burning them as MPG or AVI should be as simple as adding them to a data DVD project in Nero, and burning.

However, if you want to create a DVD that is playable in (non DivX) DVD players, then you will need to convert the files into DVD format first. I've always liked DivXToDVD for this purpose. This will convert an AVI or MPEG video into an ISO file. You can then burn this ISO file as a data DVD project, and it will translate into the necessary file structure (ie. VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS at the disc's root) as well as the correct filetypes (*.VOB).

However, DivXtoDVD has been discontinued, and the SHAREWARE version ConvertXToDVD has replaced it. I've never used this, so I can't comment on what kind of job it does.

Another freeware alternative is AVI2DVD, but I've found that this program often messes up the sync between video and audio.

All these programs work the same... put in an AVI/MPEG, spit out an ISO, then burn the ISO, and you should have a working disc. Let us know if you have any problems.

Question: DVD Creation

I'm sure several dozen threads have banged this topic into submission before, but my head is spinning from all the reading I've done lately... So if someone could just point me in the right direction at 'least, heh.

Mainly, I'm looking for a good tool to create DVD-Rs out of existing video files on my computer (in a way that will allow them to play on stand-alone players), most of the guides and such that I tend to find usually detail the opposite process... That is, how to rip/encode DVDs and other stuff for portable players, HTPCs, etc. From what I understand tools like Handbrake/AutoGK simply perform this conversion...

So what exactly do I need to go in the opposite direction? Do I need to use an authoring program like TMPGEnc or will something like SUPER suffice for a quick burn? To be honest I haven't really dived in and tried using any of these programs yet, most I've done is make backup copies of my own DVDs (or my cousin's toddler's movies) using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink.

Resize them to 720 x 576 first and output to MPEG2 for best quality.

Question: DvD Creation

I burned a DVD of "Motivational Posters" and some music. It burned correctly and it loads in everything.

The problem is that my DVD player sucks. It only plays the pictures and I can't find any way to play the music at all.

So my question is:

Is there a way I can set up a DVD menu type thing to open up the music folder by folder?

EDIT:

I meant on the same disk. It's a DVD+R. Or am I going to have to make a new disk? and If I were to make a new disk what free software could I use for MP3's? Burner XP is what I used, and Xilisoft's DVD Creator only allows me to work with Videos.

Answer:DvD Creation

The only option for a DVD to play music if it does not support mp3's, is to encode the music into a dvd Movie with either a blank video track or even some of the poster images you have used. Most DVD players do support file browsing for mp3 so try messing around with the menus when you have the disc inserted.

Hope this helps!

Is there any software out there that would convert the video file(mpg for example) into the DVD format but not burn? And let me queue a load of files up, so i could leave the system on for a day and it would encode whatever files i needed doing. I find that encoding is the most time consuming part, the disks only take a minute to burn.

I have a very restrictive permission system on my external hard drive, for security reasons (and because the files on the drive are very valuable (to me at least), scientific journal articles amongst other things) I have it set so that:
only one user (an admin, which has full control) can delete, this is further restricted by another permission that disallows deletion (this applies to all users, even 'everyone' group) so I have to make the conscious decision to remove the disable permission, then enter that user's admin password on the UAC screen to delete any files. This is to hopefully prevent accidental deletion of any files and to prevent any malware corrupting these files (I don't ever install using that admin account or use that admin account for anything other than when I am using these files)only my main account (read, write & execute) & that admin account has write capabilities (annoyingly though to rename/move a file the delete permission is used, why is that? Shouldn't rename at least be 'write' not 'delete'?)Only that admin account can take ownership and/or edit permissions, through both the filesystem permission and the 'take ownership' power in Group policy (only that admin account has that ability). Again, like delete, further restricted by a 'deny take ownership & change permission' group which further disallows any other user from making changesevery other user, including the 'everyone' group only has read & execute access

Hi,

I am a developer trying to write reports out to csv file on the file from an Oracle database.

I have a link that says: "download csv file" which links into a .csv file. inside the csv file there is a reference to an ASP via include, so that when the link is clicked on it processes the query passed to it and populates the csv file.. on the fly. This, means i do not have to use the FileSystemObject to actually create the file because it's already there, and the database query just loops through and bungs the data into the file.. once they request it.

If i browse to this directly it works ... but does not via the link. ?

The code i use within the csv file is this..

Question: Database creation

I would like to create a membership database from scratch. I have looked on the web, but nearly everthing seems to revolve around Web databases. I need this database to be stand alone. I am a complete novice at this, if anyone knows a good tutorial that will help me create this database that will not cost me a arm and a leg, and will take me through it step by step in easily understood stages I would be greatly appreciative.

Answer:Database creation

do you have MS office installed and if so MS Access. If so therer should be some sample databases in Access that may fulfil your needs

I have a very restrictive permission system on my external hard drive, for security reasons (and because the files on the drive are very valuable (to me at least), scientific journal articles amongst other things) I have it set so that:
only one user (an admin, which has full control) can delete, this is further restricted by another permission that disallows deletion (this applies to all users, even 'everyone' group) so I have to make the conscious decision to remove the disable permission, then enter that user's admin password on the UAC screen to delete any files. This is to hopefully prevent accidental deletion of any files and to prevent any malware corrupting these files (I don't ever install using that admin account or use that admin account for anything other than when I am using these files)only my main account (read, write & execute) & that admin account has write capabilities (annoyingly though to rename/move a file the delete permission is used, why is that? Shouldn't rename at least be 'write' not 'delete'?)Only that admin account can take ownership and/or edit permissions, through both the filesystem permission and the 'take ownership' power in Group policy (only that admin account has that ability). Again, like delete, further restricted by a 'deny take ownership & change permission' group which further disallows any other user from making changesevery other user, including the 'everyone' group only has read & execute access

Answer:Suppress *.tmp creation

There is a Task Schedule event for DiskCleanup which you might be able to adjust so that it automatically deletes temporary files on a regular basis. It's just a suggestion but it might need the help of other experts to set it up for your particular circumstances.

Answer:DVD creation software

lol, "buisness"

i plead the 5th

two things are illegal here:
1. your business practices
2. asking for a better way to pirate in a FORUM (yes, it's against the rules)

As for "home movies" created by YOU... I'd suggest taking a look at videohelp.com, and check the How-To section.

Question: creation date

I bought a new computer with Windows 7 and Word 2010 and had all my documents transferred from my old XP PC. Now in Library/documents the "Arrange by" choice is only "date modified" which for all existing documents was October 5, 2012--i.e., the date of the data transfer. How can I get the documents to be listed by date created ?
 

Answer:creation date

Go to My Documents folder, not library. Right click on top bar and checkmark Date Created. Then click on that header to sort by Date Created.

Hi all.
I'm interested in creating a DVD (or series of DVD's) containing multimedia pub quizes. Different rounds of questions on various subjects, some written, picture, music and video rounds that can be played on any DVD player preferably but on a laptop at least. It would be good to be able to (for example) play the intro to a track and ask them to name it then play the same thing again (from the same screen) and have it carry on further into the track come answer time.
Does anyone know of any frontend software that would be good for this? Something written specifically for the task would obviously be best but anything that could do the job and has good online support and tutorials comes a close second.
Thanks in advance

My Avast virus program detects a virus(?) as follows:

C:\Program Files\Spambully2foroe.msl\HookOECreation.dll

Avast program is unable to put it in the virus chest or even to delete it.

Is this a dangerous item, and, if so, how to isolate and get rid of it?
 

Answer:Hook OE Creation dll

Welcome to Major Geeks!

It is not a problem if you have installed SpamBully for Outlook Express. If you have installed this then Avast is giving you a false positive.

Question: Reg File Creation

I'm not very good in the area of the registry, but here goes. I know you can create reg files to add certain entries, but how would you go about deleting keys via a reg file? For example, on every XP machine of mine, I always go to regedit, and to the following string:
HKey Local Machine > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version > Explorer > Volume Caches > Compress Old Files
and delete the Compress Old Files key. Can this be made into a .reg file, so instead of drilling through the registry, I can just run the file to remove that particular key?
 

Answer:Reg File Creation

Just add the minus " - " sign in front of the registry key you want to delete:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Explorer\ VolumeCaches\Compress old files]



It works for me all the time

Hey,

I want to make a TV Commercial for my DiDA IT GCSE, as I need to promote a company that we have created.
How do I go about doing this?
Also, which software would be best? I don't mind if there trials.

Thanks

Answer:Tv Commercial Creation

I am not an expert in video production and design (more of the graphic design type), but I do have several friends who are into video production. They use and highly recommend Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects. I am a huge fan of Adobe and I use all of their products for my graphic design work. BTW, both of these programs have trial version available.
