Funny, how a little piece of information can dramatically change your point of view!

For so many years I have seen small files with the alexa name in my Temp folder, and it made me think that alexa sure must be something evil, because I have never even once in my life visited any site that had the name alexa, so how in the world did they end up in my temp folder? No, they sure had to be something evil!

You have changed my point of view, scancode!!   thumbs up

Sorry, Dirhael, for publishing your private info. I wasn't thinking too clearly, was I. You revealed your name when you uploaded a screenshot recently, and I remember thinking "with this name he can only be a Norwegian!"  Wink  But I couldn't remember right away in which thread the picture was to be found, so I didn't check up on the proper spelling - sorry again!

-

I have Spyware Terminator running all the time, and I do remember answering  Yes  to the question, to which I now know, I should have answered  No.

For 40 days I was trialing Total Uninstall, but if you install some new programs each day, you - no, not "you" but "me / myself / I", I really get tired of "wasting" all that amount of time - Total Uninstall really is a slow way to keep the PC safe. Anyway, the point being that I didn't purchase a license. But then there are moments, as today, when I regret I did not keep it.

Curt: you mean it changed the extension of the file from .avi to .miro.1??

No, jgpaiva, that was the strange point. The extension was right, but the description was wrong. In the Explorer column "type", any divx video is listed as a "divx video file". Any avi file should be listed "avi file", but was described as a miro.1 type.

But who cares, now, the problem has been solved.

Hmmm. This may very well all have been because my XP is unstable, but steeladept came the closest without being near:

Quote
open Explorer .. and .. go to Tools>Folder Options>File Types and browse down to your file extension (.avi for example). .. click on the file extention and in the box below, click on the "Change" button by "Opens With:" .. Now just browse to the application executable that you want to open that file type with and it is associated.

- because, I did all that, which steeladept said, only: it didn't help! But then I clicked Reset, and wow!! All file types were changed back to the right types again!

Edit: it would have been a problem if I didn't first changed some file type, because then there would have been no "reset" button! So I actually had to do it this "wrong" way, in order to be able to do it the right way! Now that doesn't sound too sane, does it.

The correct answer may be unknown, but the problem is solved, so who cares!

Thanks a lot, all of you!

Oh, how I wish I could address you all in Danish!

1) The problem is not the file associations, the problem is the file types.

I can right-click any video file and say "always open with KMP", and KMPLayer will open it and play it well, but that will not change the "perceived" file type; it will still be wrong (miro.1),
-  and the file will still just open Notebook when double-clicked.

I cannot use the answer from "Janet at PCF".

2) I am so far very much afraid that I will have to look further into the answers from Dirhael and steeladept, but I don't like it - "KISS" (Keep It Simple, Stupid), was invented for people like me!

But thanks anyway, all of you.

We missed Dirhael's number 100, but because I am very fond of trible figures I have taken a shot of his number 111 (which was an answer to me):

Enough talking, reading and writing, now it was time to listen to some good music - and I couldn't!  Sad

Yesterday I installed the new version of Miro, but it wouldn't open, so I removed it again, and went to sleep. Today I have come to realize that every common video type has been changed into miro.1, and I am utterly unable to open my 20 GB music videos!! - except for the DivX types. Ohh, am I frustrated right now!

Double-clicking will only open Notebook. Before trying something wild, which could make things even worse, I thought I would come here and ask you what to do. What do you think I should do - except for banging some heads at the Participatory Culture Foundation, the makers of Miro - ? Their FAQ and troubleshooting pages don't tell about this problem. Membership application for the Miro forum seems to be handled manually? I don't know, but I have not yet recieved any clearence. Miro has no dedicated support office, only some "feedback(at)pculture.org".

.. you come across as someone young at heart  smiley

I wil take it as a compliment: Thank you, Darwin,....I think.  Cool

Yes, come Saturday will do something to me. I don't spend much time thinking about my age, but it has been a mind teaser for me to be the one who is supposed to arrange a family reunion! I am the youngest of six, and the only one not married or with any children, so for so many years I have been used to be the one who is being invited, not the one who is inviting...

Curt - in case I miss it - Happy Birthday!

Thank you, Darwin! Actual (sorry!), I am a little afraid I might miss it myself...

Just to clarify: I really do think Actual Tools are over-priced. The bundled ($60) should be $20 !
5310  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Change title bar name (in any application) on: September 05, 2007, 06:39:39 PM
Well, young Curt,

Are you kidding me?

- or kindly referring to my half-a-century birthday the day after tomorrow?  cheesy

I like the Actual Tools, but they are way over-priced. Even with a 20% cut down.
- and most if not all the other features, I already have.
5311  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Change title bar name (in any application) on: September 05, 2007, 06:09:17 PM
Nifty! justice did a fine job with this.

But I really want a permanent change of certain title bar names.
Are there any free or cheap ones to do this (to me, $20 or 30 is nowhere cheap for this one feature)?

 tellme

(Edit: TrialPay is not an option I will want to consider.)
Edit2: I cannot see any that Actual Tools should be offering this feature - temporary or permanent. Is it just me who can't read?

Edit3: Ohh, it is called "Change window caption"
- and is $30 !!  thumb down
5312  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Whats on your desktop? on: September 04, 2007, 12:06:38 PM
You could use ScreenShot Captor

I will be able to do the same trick with my FastStone Capture 5.7 within the next couple of weeks, says Andrew from FastStone.

5315  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Today's GiveAway is the fastest photo resizer I have tried on: September 04, 2007, 08:23:03 AM
For half a year I have been looking for an easy and fast way to resize my pictures. Not batch resizing of a lot of pictures in one go, but   one by one   now and then   for a special purpose (very often I want the pics I upload to DC to be no more than 560 pixels wide). For a long time I assumed the feature had to be integrated with the context menu, but none of the apps I have been trying would give me what I wanted. The one that came closest was Microsoft's Photo Power Toy, Image Resizer, but it won't let me save settings for any other dimensions than the ones some bureaucrat determined once and for all.

However, today's giveaway offer, DropBox Image Processor have rapidly proven itself to be very easy, fast and reliable to use. Do the settings, and drag and drop the image to the auto-hiding auto-popout window's box in the margen, and the resizing is all  done. If you want several preset dimensions you can just add several boxes into the same window.

Edit: Of course I should't have written it is The Fastest Resizer, it is no faster than the next resizer, but it is a lot easier to use than anything else I have tried, and therefor the total process is faster. As for my special request, I have the dimension presets to be 560 x 9999 pixels - and it is working fine.

The program can do a lot more, it is kind of an editor, but I have so far only been interested in the resizing feature.

Quote
DropBox Image Processor performs various image editing process such as rotate; flip; resize; adjust color; adding watermark, text, frame, or shadow; red-eye fixer; etc.

Features:
   
Edit multiple photos with drag-and-drop from any File Explorer or Image Browser.

  • More than 20 image processing

  • Custom DropBox allows you to combine multiple image processors to get unlimited results.
  • Batch photo processing.

If you miss the giveaway offer today, the normal price is merely $15.

Yes, some people are talking very highly of it. WreckedCarz even said it is better than MS Office 2003 - but that is of course nonsense. But fine it is. And FREE  thumbs up
5317  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: When you make your 100'th Post on: September 03, 2007, 09:46:24 PM
 cheesy  Thanks, Darwin.

When we have something to say, we say it, don't we!  Cool

- only, I must admit, most of my posts still are questions...  embarassed

and I don't care!  Grin
5318  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: AcroLiminator 1.0 on: September 03, 2007, 09:38:38 PM
I wouldn't go for that one! But if you buy the not so optimized thingy they will sooner or later offer you their Office at $5. But I guess it is best just to trial the Office 2006 for the moment being.
5319  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: AcroLiminator 1.0 on: September 03, 2007, 08:26:22 PM
@ Loki15: To my memory (don't pick too much on me if I am wrong, please), they will give you a chance to buy the program right away at a cheap price (was it $7?). If they do, you should know in advance (now) that this is an one time offer - and an offer which is just fine.
5320  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: AcroLiminator 1.0 on: September 03, 2007, 08:12:41 PM
.. What was the link again?  I'll go get it!

Sorry; I don't think you can have it a dollar five right now. As Darwin said, the link I gave was attached to my email address. You will have to trial the program for now. But if you buy *any* Ashampoo program, they will very soon almost spam you with offers to buy what else they have at a very cheap price. And they have a lot, and it really is cheap.

You no longer need to have a PayPal account in order to use PayPal!

Good luck with this project too!  thumbs up

So you think the "5324604" part most likely is referring to my email address?
5324  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: AcroLiminator 1.0 on: September 03, 2007, 06:44:21 PM
I don't have excel, ...
- no excuse!   Cool  Try [Edit: deleted]this $5 (FIVE) link - but maybe you'll first have to be a registered user of a program of their's. But you know you can trial Ashampoo Office 2006 for free for 40 days - that is more than long enough for a speedy gonzales like you...
5325  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Whats on your desktop? on: September 03, 2007, 10:44:10 AM
@ TucknDar, can you please tell what program / technique you used to blur this small part of your picture?
