  • 2. Product Key (RIP OFF)
    I am very upset with microsoft. I purchased microsoft 2003 student teacher edition after a trial version on a new laptop. I received the cd by mail after having had a problem with my computer. The product key sticker had fallen off my cd case. Upon contacting microsoft for a new product key I was informed that I would have to pay for it. They even found my registration for this microsoft office 2003 edition. WHY DID I REGISTER IT IN THE FIRST PLACE? I should be given a new product key number at no charge. PERIOD!!!! I see others are having the same problems. Bill Gates, please feel free to contact me about this. Sincerely, Patricia A. Youngkin. XXXX@XXXXX.COM , or XXXX@XXXXX.COM

  • 4. Adding new Powerpoint Templates to Office XP
    We are using Office XP SP3 in our environment. Due to a recent change in the name of our company we have created new Powerpoint templates. I need to copy these templates to all workstations in the company. Some workstations are mutli-user. Is there a setting with Powerpoint or a registry key I can change so that I only have to copy the templates to a workstation once and then point all user profiles to this location? Thanks, Paul

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
