  • 1. Windows explorer has encountered a problem
    The OS is XP Pro. There are two user accounts: me and she. The problem: when she tries to access a picture that was just sent to "my pictures" or one on her desk top the following message pops up. "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" and the system hangs. Process explorer shows that "my pictures is not responding. Looking at the details has: AppName explorer.exe ModVer 5.1.2600.3119 AppVer 6.0.2900.3156 Offset 0012a5b ModName kernel32.dll But if I log on to my account and go to "my computer" and approach the same file via "docs & settings" and onward to her "my pictures folder", then the jpg picture file opens with no difficulty at all. What is going on here? Charlie
  • 2. Can't Access Secured Web Sites
    I am using XP pro and IE6 or IE7 and I am having difficulties accessing certain secured web sites on both IE 6 and 7. It seems that some of the site will allow be to enter a user id and password, but will not let me download information from the site once I have logged on. On some sites I can even get by the log in screen. What seems strange is that this happens only when the machine is connected to a router (Linksys VR016). I have several other machines (also running XP pro and IE6 and 7) connected to that router that can access these sites without any problems. If I connect the troubled machine directly to a DSL modem there doesn seem to be any issues. Also, I have used the machine on other networks with a Linksys Wireless router (although I used a cable to connect to the router) without any issues. I would suspect the VR016 router, but why would other older machines work when a newer one won. I have also tried disabling the firewall on the router and computer to no avail. I have set the security setting to low on the troubled machine, but again it doen help.
  • 3. IE does not open the set default mail client after instlalling Windows Live Mail
    Also posted in the WLM newsgroup: I've downloaded and am testing WLM for certain features, but have not made it my default mail client..... With WLM closed and OE opened, and IE opened, I tried to send a web page by email and WLM opened instead of OE. I closed WLM and checked the settings in IE to make sure that OE was listed as the default mail program, which it was. I checked the settings in both OE and WLM to make sure the former was the default, and the latter was not. I tired again to send the web page via the default email client and again, WLM opened instead of OE. Has anyone experienced this problem? Now, why would this behavior occur when all the settings point to OE as the default mail client? Do I need to go into the folder options, file associations and change the program that sends web pages, or go into the registry somewhere? I know I have to change these options in IE whenever MS performs updates, because the default email program always seems to change to Outlook after MS updates. Thanks for any help or explanations to resolve this peculiarity. Regards, Ryder

  • 5. Outlook keeps changing fonts and quality on signatures
    At my company, I often get calls regarding people who have their signatures changed by Outlook. We have a rich text format and an HTML pic inserted into our signatures, but they randomly get changed when sending or replying to emails. Sometimes the company logo (html) gets moved from under the name to the side of the name. ANy way to prevent or fix this from re-occurring?

Toolbar won't stay locked

The search function in the toolbar won't stay 'unchecked' 
even when I try to lock the toolbars. I've done the 
toolbar regedit clear procedure but it's not helping.

1.IE6 Toolbars won't stay locked

I can't get the toolbars to stay locked in IE6.  They 
appear to lock when I get them how i want them, then right 
click on them and on the menu click on 'Lock the Toolbars'.

They stay locked until the next time I open up IE6 again 
when they're back all over the place.  Anyone able to help?

2.Toolbars won't stay locked

I am currently running IE 6.0 and have 3 toolbars; standard, links ( to my frequently used sites), and "my websearch" (which came with Smiley Central).

For some reason, lately my toolbars keep switching places with each other, even though the VIEW box says they are "locked" and I keep locking the toolbars, but they won't stay where I set them!

Any ideas? It's driving me NUTS!

5.toolbars don't stay locked


I'm using XP home edition / IE 6.  Recently, something strange has begun 

My toolbars are usually locked into a configuration that I prefer. 
However,sometimes when I open a new window, the toolbars are in another 
configuration. I can set the back the way I like it & lock 'em again, but 
eventually they come unlocked again.

(I'm the only user on the computer.)

I've run AdAware & Spybot but that doesn't help ~

I've had the Google Toolbar for a couple years but doubt that's the problem 
as it's always behaved itself in the past, and this problem has been going 
on for maybe a month.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks so much.
