    can't get online

    I'm in the same boat. I did a clean install of Win7 on my desktop and it says I'm missing a network adapter but IE won't connect so I can find one. I did discover a massive list of manufacturers with driver software, I installed two and they wouldn't start. I can't find the list now. Please...

    Windows 7 Freeze problem!

    I'm running VIPRE on my desktop and I'm spending a mint on the accursed machines already. I'm still a tech junkie even tho I forgotten how. I'm also an rpg junkie but Polyhedron Games material is on my desktop. Please help quickly and I apologize for pestering you folks and my ignorance.

    Windows 7 Freeze problem!

    My work computer is frozen on Starting Windows. I'm 62, disabled on a fixed income this lousy place taking half of it. I'm not a geek any more because of a brain tumor (tho I have built 5 websites). I'd like to get back to work. I did a system restore to get back my Word functionality and it...

    Admin Permissions

    Didn't work. Another member post a real technical way and I was going to copy it but it seems to have disappeared. Computers have become a huge PITA for me but I keep trying.

    Word

    Figured I'd check before I "cleaned up" which is about impossible with my ailments.

    Word

    I have more problems. Windows informs me and I can't open my Word file. Since I'm a writer, that's a big problem.

    admin power

    That's Greek to me Dave. I'll assume I got it with Cliff's answer. I tried following your directions but I no longer am a geek. Brain tumor did me in.

    Admin Permissions

    Another problem. Windows is telling me I need admin permission to do certain things. I'm the only one who use these cantankerous machines. How do I get permanent admin permission?

    SOLVED Yahoo

    I use Firefox in conjunction w/ Google search. Yahoo keeps getting in the way and I despise Yahoo. I have a Yahoo toolbar on my Mozilla start page. How do I get rid of Yahoo, all traces, on my computers?

    SOLVED Broken again

    I fixed it myself, kept hammering away at passwords until it gave me a menu and then I did a restore.

    SOLVED Broken again

    I probably shouldn't have computers anymore. Typing this on my laptop cause my desktop froze up again, so I turned the power off, turned it back on and got "Windows didn't shut down correctly" and the arrow key wouldn't highlight "Start Windows normally." I don't know the p/w for the recovery...

    Win 7 jacked

    Windows won't update. Tried MS but they're about impossible to deal with. Had remote assistance that got halfway but now I can't even click on a chat at the answer desk w/o it going to a nothing page. Anyone willing to do a remote with my machine? I seriously disabled now, about deaf, blind...

    Autocorrect in Word

    Word is stupid but I will not throw rocks at in my condition. I have Word 2010, the book and am running Word 2007. I'm working on my last gasp book and Word is not correcting. I've been in AutoCorrect and can't seem to find the problem. Since I'm not the the world's best typist (brain tumor)...
