    MFC990 printer

    Computer is Hp All-in-one. This printer won't scan. Brother told me to download a file - cc3update but when I have decompressed it I am told that update can't continue because it is not properly installed (I thought that was why I am here?) Please reinstall the original and run the update...

    Control Panel

    This post is nearly solved! I don't know how or why but the items on the control panel work - sometimes when I have drawn a blank I go back to using the right mouse it says "open" and it does. I may have triggered a change when I was looking at " customize the taskbar and start...

    Control Panel

    Thank you Core however whatever I have tried I cannot delete mywebsearch. It is on all 3 comps upstairs. Downstairs laptop and iPad needd testing. Task Manager has been cleared of everything, comp restarted and MWS is still there. I have still to use malware because a new copy is required.

    Control Panel

    CP will not open. Have had this problem on 2 comps but I could get into CP with eMachines laptop (even though it would sometimes not collaborate,)Now I am on a new HP desk top all-in-one purchased 7 Feb 2011. No specifications at the moment. Did briefly see CP on first day, but next day it...

    eMachines & W7

    eMachines & W 7 Thank you for your helpful reply. Are you saying that Vista drivers will help W 7 to work better? I'll try the drivers over next few days. I am quite resigned to 32 bit programs so that doesn't concern me much. nof

    eMachines & W7

    Is W 7 incompatible with eMachines g520? Just looking at a factory defaults area and found a cd W7 recovery disk. This indicates that some laptops in the UK are using W7. Surely other versions of Windows would work? It is a pretty mean trick if the next update to Windows can't be used. Buyers...

    Brightness

    The eMachines Users Guide does not deal with the incompatibility issue at all. I think that is a serious set back for users. I am wondering what to do about it. I will have to delete W7 unless there are drivers. nof

    Brightness

    Thank you for the above. I could not abide Vista. Perhaps I could go back to XP ******************************************* I have read eMachines introductory startup pamphlet but I need a bit more time to take in the implications of incompatibility. Can you suggest a course of action please? I...

    Brightness

    eMachines laptop G520 control panel/display does not work and nor do some other features of control panel. I cannot adjust brightness other than being in a darkened room. The laptop came with Vista and I installed W7. I have another laptop running XP and no problems. Any help is appreciated nof

    WiFi and iPhone

    I am still trying to get W 7 to work with iPhone. Some days it is a W 7 problem because it originates with the network. When I had Vista the network was fine but now I am worn out with this problem. Other days it is iPhone's fault. It must be encryption? Here is where I am at present: I have...

    SOLVED Windows 7 Control Panel

    It was solved little by little e.g. one day there were six items showing, then a few more. Now I have the full list I think. When they don't start up I do a right click. When I have my wifi problem sorted I will work on this again. It's possible that items downloaded without my noticing. I was...
