No, you are right: Windows Update has never caused my PC to crash or misbehave.
But many times the updates have failed to install - also after re-updating.

LOL - anyone dare to install this?

You know, when I posted the initial post yesterday, I clicked "Modify" at once, and removed the few words I had added at the end of the post, because I realized that the little joke I had written very well could be mis-interpreted. Guess what the words said? They said: "Not for Carol"...   tongue
5404  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Latest MS updates borks WinXP? on: August 17, 2007, 11:29:55 AM
not once has there been a problem.

I am amazed - and puzzled. When I update at Microsoft I always first make a bet about how many installations will fail this time!
5405  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Latest MS updates borks WinXP? on: August 17, 2007, 10:41:18 AM
Thanks, Carol. Well, I am kind of prepared to re-install whatever it takes, but I also realize that some these apps are from GiveAwayOfTheDay, so they would be lost. Okay, easy comes, easy goes.

Does anyone "know" WHY WindizUpdate ( http://windowsupdate.62nds.com/ ) IS AT LEAST TEN THOUSAND TIMES FASTER THAN MICROSOFT UPDATE?

I couldn't believe it: Scanning and Installing: so incredible fast!!!

It's hard for me to understand why I have never have heard about this site before:

Maybe I am one of the "victims" of KB936357? Maybe. I have not been able to understand why my PC went sluggish and unstable, and have tried both this and that to fix the problem, but so far in vain. I have the KB936357 installed but my CPU is another kind than mentioned. But when I click "remove", Windows will list all these programs and say they will/might be affected:

Forgive me for even asking such imposible question, but do I dare to remove KB936357??

Edit: Let me re-phrase: Would you dare to remove this KB936357 ???

Spyware Doctor (free version) is now a part of Google Pack. Feature comparison between free and paid editions

Until a month ago I also had Spyware Doctor Pro, but it wasn't placed in Start, and I didn't renew the license - I will rather recommend the FREE Spyware Terminator!

I have a Add-Aware 2007 Plus license, but doesn't even have the program installed, because it was too annoying.

5411  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Google now includes StarOffice as a free download! on: August 15, 2007, 01:25:04 PM
Quote from: Joe Wilcox
The Star in Google's Office

Joe Wilcox (www.microsoft-watch.com):

Ho. Ho. StarOffice now comes with Google Pack. Is it really a big deal?
 
Another reason I hate vacations is that all the exciting news—such as SCO, Novell and Unix—seems to pour out together. Now, it's Google and Sun kissing in a tree.

StarOffice is now included with Google Pack, the oddball collection of free software. StarOffice brings the collection's number to 13. Will that be Google's and Sun's lucky number? Yes and no is the answer.

Quick recap: In late 2005, Google and Sun cut a technology agreement that generated all kinds of speculation about a StarOffice distribution deal. The rumors came to naught. Google instead developed its own online products. Google Docs and Spreadsheets is more suited to the company's Web business.

So, what does it all mean?

Reasons why this is no big deal:

  • OpenOffice already is available for free.
  • Microsoft offers Office Trials, for which there is a high conversion to the paid version.
  • Works 9 will be free in an ad-supported version.
  • Many productivity suite functions are commoditized elsewhere, such as e-mail, personal accounting and photo slide show software.


This could be a very big deal, if:

  • StarOffice is distributed for free, to anyone, anywhere.
  • Google and Sun extend StarOffice capabilities through Web services, such as online collaboration, e-mail and search keywords (e.g., ad-supported software).
  • Office Trial conversions decline—a likely consumer and small business market scenario for OEM preloads.
  • Dell includes StarOffice on new PCs as part of its Google distribution deal.
  • Google and Sun expand their relationship to include search, server and storage capabilities.

The more immediate risk isn't Microsoft but Corel—or even OpenOffice. Easy and free distribution of commercial StarOffice would likely negatively impact open-source OpenOffice, including future development.

Where Microsoft wins is distribution of the commercial Sun software, rather than its open-source software. Open-source advocates should consider the Google-Sun deal as a foreboding occurrence.

None that I know of. Fifteen years ago you could use "Pause/Break", but not on XP, I think. Today I use Ctrl+Shift+S, but this hotkey comes from Webshots, not from XP.
5413  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Shortcut hotkeys on: August 15, 2007, 08:38:11 AM
Two years ago TechRepublic made a list of hotkeys. In their newest mail to their members it seems they really didn't had anything to tell, I guess, so they've re-launched the (.PDF) lists again. I will try to attach them in HotKeys.zip, 786 KB.

  • 98 keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Word 2003
  • 85 keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Excel
  • 80+ keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Outlook
  • 50+keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Outlook Express
  • 50+ keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft PowerPoint
  • 70+ keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Access
  • 200+ keyboard shortcuts for Lotus Notes
  • 90+ keyboard shortcuts for Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0 for Windows
  • 100+ keyboard shortcuts for TextPad
  • 70+ keyboard shortcuts for Mozilla Firefox
  • 60 keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7
  • 70+ keyboard shortcuts for Apple Mac OS X
  • 50+ keyboard shortcuts for Windows XP

... antivirus which doesnt allow for ignoring files..

Yes, CrossLoop really is spyware... and we want it to be!  cheesy  But, really, tomos, anti-virus that doesn't allow for ignoring and trusting files? Ehhmm... is it time to look for another solution?

Speaking of CrossLoop: quote from today's "alert" from Gizmo:

Quote from: Gizmo
2.1 Free Remote Control Utility Offers Ease of Use

I'm impressed with CrossLoop. It's the easiest way yet to remotely control a distant PC. Before you get your hopes up, let me say that it is no substitute for products like LogMeIn or PCAnywhere, both of which allow you to login to a remote PC without anyone in attendance. By contrast, CrossLoop absolutely requires someone at the other end. If you can live with that limitation, CrossLoop may just what you have been looking for.

It works like this: The user on the remote PC runs CrossLoop and generates a random 12 digit key which they send to you by email, phone, whatever. You plug this key into a copy of CrossLoop running on your own PC and request a connection with the remote. If the remote user accepts the connection you then can take control of the remote PC and operate it through your keyboard and screen. At all times the user at the remote sees on his screen exactly what is happening.

That's pretty much standard remote computing, but it is the ease of use that makes CrossLoop different. No complex commands or firewall configuration are needed, just the ability to follow simple on-screen instructions. CrossLoop is really a smart front-end to the open source utility TightVNC. It supports 128 bit Blowfish encrypted connections and unlike the free version of LogMeIn, allows for two-way file transfers between the client and host PCs. Unlike Windows Remote Desktop, it will run on any PC from Windows 98 onwards. Just the thing for helping a friend with a PC problem, remote support or remote user training.

Thanks to subscriber Mike Pasternack for the suggestion. Freeware, Windows 98 and later, 2.28MB

2: I use CrossLoop, a new free remote assistance program that encrypts all communication with 128 bit encryption. It is not hosted by SF but does use VNC.

Man, am I mystified!

Right-clicking the test picture and Saving Target As (JPG) it will display the thumb in Explorer with the "crabby colors", but opening it in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will display the correct (I assume) colors!!:

[attachimg=1]

[attachthumb=2]

I don't have any genuine CMYK images, so I don't know the answer to the original question, but it seems you should try Windows Picture and Fax Viewer"!

5418  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Do you know a good image viewer with CMYK support ? on: August 12, 2007, 03:56:29 AM
This (too) is making me curious: How can I test a picture that Windows cannot find? If I click the test picture, it will disappear, only leaving a little red cross ("picture is missing"). If I right-click it > "Save as...", Windows will say it cannot find any file and Windows Help will ask where to find "C:\WINDOWS\System32\mshtml.hlp".

And just looking at the test picture, it has the same colours as the "crappy colors" picture!

This is all confusing to me!

In general, any tabbed program supports ctrl+tab Wink

I have had no experience with tabbed programs before I got this XP five months ago. Well, there was Firefox, but I always just clicked the tab, because I didn't know there were more to be discovered. Thanks a lot, all of you, it has beeen educating to read your answers to this little question of mine.

But still, @anyone, How does one repair the error, this frustrating "Ctrl+Arrow versus Ctrl+Shift+Arrow" situation? Do I need to edit the registry? Do "you" KNOW??

Edit: We have handled the problem but not the reason...: there is an error on my PC!! Angry
5423  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Repair hotkey in Maxthon 1.6 on XP ?? on: August 10, 2007, 03:56:11 PM
You're right; Ctrl+Tab is the same; one more feature I didn't know of!
Thanks a lot, hamradio!   thumbs up
5424  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Repair hotkey in Maxthon 1.6 on XP ?? on: August 10, 2007, 11:11:25 AM
Yes, lanux, and thank you: now the problem is hidden,

- but then again, that is all it is; hidden. I was imaging that someone could direct me so I somehow could edit a registry key and make the problem go all away... but I surely can live with this, because Ctrl+Shift+Arrow is far more important to me than a hotkey for tab switching.

Thanks a lot!   thumbs up
5425  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Repair hotkey in Maxthon 1.6 on XP ?? on: August 10, 2007, 09:07:30 AM
XP Home SP2 & Maxthon 1.6 & "Ctrl+Shift+Arrow versus Ctrl+Arrow".

Whenever I write a forum post (like now) my memory will tell me that Ctrl+Shift+Arrow will mark the words to the right/left. In Maxthon, Ctrl+Arrow (without Shift) will change tab focus. But somehow my versions of Maxthon can not figure out to differ between Ctrl+Arrow and Ctrl+Shift+Arrow, so whenever I try to mark the words in a post, Maxthon will swift to another tab! This is frustrating, and I have of course searched and searched inside Maxthon to find this shortcut, or at least find anything related on how to change it / correct it - but in vain. It *seems* that I have to manipulate the registries?

I have of course installed a new version on top of the "old", but that didn't change anything.
I also have tried to uninstall various plugins, and that didn't help either.
I have removed as many hotkeys as posible.
The problem is not new to me.

So now I am asking if any of you hot shots know where I can change / repair this hotkey?  tellme
