Internet Fixes Weekend Wind Up.


============================     Week Of 12/23/2007

Last Mondays News Letter Tips.
1. I have a raft of KB files residing in my Window folder. What are these files and can I get rid of them?

2. When I go to Start / All Programs, I get a list that is in an order that is understood only by the computer gods. How do I get that listing to be in Alphabetical order?

3. I downloaded Windows Media Player onto my laptop. Iím not much of a computer whiz but from the researching Iíve done there is no way to completely rid yourself of the media player because it is a feature of the operating system. However, I do not want the media player on my laptop. Its an annoyance! Please help me find a way to remove it completely.

4. Recently, I created another computer administrator account on my Windows XP based computer. I now want to delete it. How can I go about it so that I will remain the only administrator as before?

5. I was wondering how to stop my computer from auto filling in: search bars and email subject lines, login username lines etc. I would also like to know where to delete this information, I though it would be under internet options but it isnít there, as far as I know, if you could help that would be great.

6. Iíve got 2 files of MS Outlook emails which are of 1GB each. How do I backup of those files? CDs are maximum 700MB. So is there any other way I can back up those files in a place other than My PC.

7. I would like to be able to take a picture file from Google images and place them on top the plain manila file thatís on my desktop. In other words how to I make a folder icon out of a picture file, jpeg or gif etc?

8. I recently increased my memory of 512MB to 1G. I use a Dell 8400 Hyper thread 3200 Intel chip. I have the hyper thread turned on in the bios. Windows XP OS. I didn't seem to get any performance increase, and wonder if I should change the setting in Performance Options from the Virtual Memory Paging file "custom size" (which is set to 1533 MB with max of 1536; which is what is says is recommended) to "system managed size", or something else. The Memory Usage is set for "system cache'. My Hard Drive is 40MB. Is there any other tweaking I could do?

9. Six to eight months ago, I deleted a folder that was full of jpeg pictures. I emptied the recycle bin as well. Can that folder and it's contents be recovered?

10. How can I show two (or more?) windows side by side. I've been switching back and forth between two websites in IE 6 and I'd like to be able to show them both simultaneously. I'd also like to be able to show two drawings (from the same drawing program) side by side. I'm using Windows XP Home edition with all the latest updates from Microsoft. I've tried to look up how to do this in a few books, unsuccessfully, perhaps because I'm not using the correct terminology.

Last Wednesdays News Letter Tips.
1. We have three computers all running XP home. One of them has "lost" the windows media player. I think probably as a result of a virus. I have tried to download and reinstall media player (both media player 9 and 10) and get the same error message

2. I have a question I hope that someone can help me with....I just recently bought a laptop, and I donít really know much about computers so I thought that with a laptop I could go on the internet anywhere that I'm at and not have to plug anything in (like dial up), but now I see that is not the case, so Iím confused, I thought laptops were supposed to be wireless. Is there something that I need to do or get to be able to connect to the internet without having to dial up? and I want to be able to take my laptop with me to Europe when I go on vacation this summer, would I be able to do that and how would I get an internet connection?

3. I am having problems installing 16 bit programs on our computer. The programs are supposed to work but the following box pops up when we try to run them.

4. My brother has a pop-up ad frozen on his system. He's tried several remedies but they have not worked. A radio computer tech suggested he uninstall Windows XP. He did not upgrade to XP. My question is should he simply use the uninstall feature on his system and what will he lose, if anything, when he does? Or would you suggest something else?

5. Is it possible to load 2 or more copies of "windows fax and picture viewer?", so you can switch between photos. If yes, how do you do this?

6. My pc takes forever to boot up and I would like to know what is required in the startup menu and how to change the startup menu to use only what I need to speed up.

7. I recently installed XP professional, decided I did not like it and switched back to Home version of XP. Now upon booting up it always asks me which operating system to use. Is there a way I can permanently delete Windows XP Professional from the boot menu so It does not prompt me that anymore?

8. I'm trying to block Ebay so my children won't be tempted to buy anymore junk, but I don't Know where to begin. How do you block a website like Ebay?

9. How Do I Install Windows XP On A SATA Hard Drive

10. Can you tell me how I can add items to the Right click and send to option in Vista?
