    SOLVED Windows Live Mail

    Exactly my point, Cliff. Surely MS have enough experienced coders, that they could load the image from the Users computer, rather than going down the longer road - User profile - back to the computer, for the picture. It isn't an astronomic problem, surely.

    SOLVED Windows Live Mail

    Just a follow up. The thread inspire me to chase this problem again. Best offer from a Microsoft rep is that it is a combination of a slow server and a fast HD. I am not too satisfied, but this makes a bit of sense to me. My problem really started after I had installed an SSD. My server is an...

    SOLVED Windows 7 Question

    "Dave in Denmark said to “save as” the attachment and to select my default folder, but ‘save as’ opened my Removable Disk E and gave it a name so I clicked on Save As and it went" Sorry, I should have explained that it is not necessary to accept that folder. From that dialogue, you can select...

    SOLVED Windows 7 Question

    I would suggest you right click the attachement and select "save as" This will select your default folder (make a note of this!) and also the attachment in question, for example "mine.doc" When you have completed this, open the default folder, right click the attachment you have saved. Now...

    gradually a dead town?

    Another factor has crept in, over a period of time. Windows 8/8.1 comments in this thread are correct. But, regarding earlier OSs. I have noticed a decline in Windows 7, or XP and even earlier, over the past year. IMHO, I think one reason may be, (pretty much as Trainableman said) is that just...

    SOLVED How to create pre-installed windows 7 recovery disc?

    I apologise for butting in. I have always been reluctant to make use of "recovery" media from the OEM manufacturer. The problem is, that, should you venture into dual boot situations, the factory restore recovery media will delete yor alternative OS. My action, in your situation, would be to...

    SOLVED Turn on Windows Security Center Service

    You have been attacked by a virus. I think, if you examine it, you will find your firewall is also off.I would suggest you first of all, run a good virus scan to be rid of it. (malwarebytes ?). Then go to this page - it is a Microsoft page and 100% reliable, and run each of the *.reg in turn...

    Windows 7 or 8

    Red.dwarf. "I have read in window 8 is that it is strongly geared to a touch screen and as such is not so suitable for a conventional keyboard and mouse....." Totally untrue. Microsoft, rightly or wrongly, depending on your point of view, have given priority to a new touchscreen based desktop...
