    Cannot Disable File/Printer Sharing

    Hey Guys, First, I wasn't exactly busting [email protected] kneecaps, I just teased her. Second, my work was 100% independent, as I could find no suitable solutions on the internet. Thirdly, I put extra work in to make it a clear step-by-step process for the convoluted Windows Home Network...

    Paint Shop Program

    (Accessory) Paint also apparently has no way to set preferences. Each time I print, it defaults to the worst possible configuration. I have to manually set to portrait, center and choose 100% size (rather than 700%). Is this just another of the Win 7 screw ups? It is about as...

    Cannot Disable File/Printer Sharing

    Sure Sure, I think the only solution is a big wet cyber kiss. ;-)

    Cannot Disable File/Printer Sharing

    Amazing, I saw your problem and thought I would help, but instead see you took personal credit for cutting and pasting my fix. Great work. https://www.w7forums.com/unsharing-homegroup-folders-but-sharing-printer-t3310.html

    Windows Media Center-Cannot Stop Recording

    Now I see what my Windows Media Center (WMC) problem is. I think many people have reported related problems, that is video freezing, Low Bit Rate errors,... . It is always recording the TV Tuner (KWorld U315 USB Tuner) video feed. I don't want every Live TV show I watch to be recorded...

    Greedy rotten pigs

    We clearly aren't smart enough to presume we can solve the Brit's problems. :lol: I generally read some of the FT, Guardian or UK TimesOnLine each day on American topics. No offense, but sometimes they sort-of miss the take of US anthropological culture, which is the only culture we have of...

    Don't quit your day jobs with computers, as you're not economists.

    Have you had trouble with Windows 7

    Actually, I had the same problem (unable to change line spacing) in Microsoft Student and Home Office. The problem is you can edit spacing, but the next time you open Word, it will be restored to the "Default" value of 10 pt spacing. The fix is to: - Select the Page Layout tab, - Click the...

    Have you had trouble with Windows 7

    I believe you. I used to work for TI DLP and it was surprising the resistance to change I saw, both from people and companies. For example, years ago the large company that starts with a K, didn't believe digital video would ever displace their film (particularly in movies). I can see that a...

    Have you had trouble with Windows 7

    I am not using Internet Video, as I couldn't bear to sign another license agreement. I'm using an external tuner that connects to my cable and inputs digital video via a USB port. It looks like this: I am only using the old U.S. analog (low resolution) video to reduce the workload. U.S...

    Have you had trouble with Windows 7

    I had high expectations for Windows Media Center, but it is turning out to be a big disappointment to me. It is a CPU hog, that impacts all other Win 7 performance. WMC freezes or give Low Bit Rat Error, or skips Audio/Video every time I perform another task. Even moving a IE window around...

    Driver letter changes after each restart

    Yeah, even XP would reassign your drive letters if it detected that a prior drive had been disconnected. A loose cable would look like that. I never bothered to figure how to stop it, but it isn't a problem after you get your hardware installed. I did disconnect and reconnect drives to get...

    .net Framework

    Thanks - I'm not sure which problem you are intending to address with your fix, but it likely could be the IE error 'Browser Shut Down Unexpectedly'. I disabled several Startup Menu items about 12 days ago at the recommendation of Win 7 "Find and Fix Problem" service to speed startup. I...

    Thanks Catilly, I understand what you are describing now.

    .net Framework

    I have got that error several times last week when IE started in the morning. BTW, I almost always Delete everything at the end of the day too. Tools -> General Tab -> Delete -> [check all boxes] -> Delete ->OK. The problem went away without any special action. In both with XP and Win 7...
