    SOLVED Stuck at Logging off...

    Solved by removing battery and killing it. Restarted fine after the B&W "Resume Windows Normally" screen.

    SOLVED Stuck at Logging off...

    When I last shut down my Windows 7 notebook it sat at the "Logging off..." state with the circular indicator spinning. I used the power button to shut down but when restarting it opens in that state. I tried using the four-disc recovery set I made on day one. It's labeled "Factory-State OS...

    SOLVED Win 7 "Sees" Win 8 Phone on USB Port but Subsequently Ignores It

    Thanks for the reply. Before trying your suggestion I uninstalled it (most people say "removed") and plugged the phone back into a USB port. A new driver was installedand it now shows uo in Windows Explorer. I don't know if a dialog box opens. I don't particularly care 'cause I just want to...

    SOLVED Win 7 "Sees" Win 8 Phone on USB Port but Subsequently Ignores It

    When I plugged in my Win 8 phone into my Win 7 laptop USB port the laptop used to open a dialog box offering action choices. Now it just (1) sounds the two tones and (2) lists a Windows phone in the Open Devices and Printers icon. Windows Explorer won't display it. It performs normally on my...

    IE Has Facebook, Twitter, E-Mail Popup at Lower Left of Screen

    Thanks for your diagnosis. Yes, it appears to happen only when NBC content is selected. So it's likely that NBC generates it and we can't stop it. This was reinforced when I had the same results on one of my other computers and my Surface Pro2 (I usually don't visit msn.com when using them)...

    IE Has Facebook, Twitter, E-Mail Popup at Lower Left of Screen

    I really didn't follow the preceding exchange because I read it very fast (almost a scan) and sometimes I just don't follow discussions that are somewhat computer-technical. But I gather that it's part of msn.com. That may be—my security is by Norton 360 (weekly full system scan) and weekly...

    IE Has Facebook, Twitter, E-Mail Popup at Lower Left of Screen

    How do I get rid of this annoying thing that often appears at the lower left of my Internet Explorer screen, just above the Start button? I can click on the X to reduce it but I want it gone.

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    David, you are correct, there is a SAVE button. And it works. I made a page one mistake and did not scroll to look for it. On the other hand, Microsoft could... Oh, well. Thanks to all of you for your willingness to help.

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    Thanks for your thoughts, David. I've done that several times. There's no "SAVE" button so I've tried several ways to save my changes but the only thing that works is the removal of my vacation message. If I click on the blue box that's labeled "Turn off replies" I receive this– So your...

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    This is so bizarre! Two weeks ago I marked this thread as solved after changing a check-box in Outlook.com to shut the vacation notice off. I didn't know that it didn't shut off until someone told me. I opened Outlook.com to find this at the bottom of the screen— I use the dialog box to turn...

    WinPatrol?

    I use it but it really doesn't remove a virus. It will identify details about your system, like what opens at system startup, cookie detail, registry changes, and a host of very usable features. So you might see a file in the startup list that you can identify as a virus or spyware but other...

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    You wrote, "Well from the links I showed above, at least certain versions do or did have vacation settings at one time." So I thought that I would go back and study your post and the links you provided. I watched the woman in the youtube video explain Vacation Notice and saw that she was on a...

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    This is kind of a stretch but here goes. 1. I used to use Microsoft Office Outlook for e-mail, my contacts and my calendar. 2. I purchased a Windows 8 smartphone in order to sync my Outlook and smartphone calendars. 3. To accomplish that I had to open a WLM e-mail account, sync Outlook to...

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    General Tab Read Tab Receipts Tab (This should be the one) I'll send the others if you think any have merit but I paged through them before my OP and didn't find anything relevant to Vacation Notice. I have a friend who oversees WLM for a small company (it's their company standard) and he...

    SOLVED Live Mail - I Can't Locate Vacation Notice to Turn it Off

    (Continued from above.) My Windows Live Mail must be different from yours. BTW, thanks for the prompt reply. I became so focused on solving my problem I forgot my manners. (Mother can stop spinning in her grave, now.)
