  • 2. Folder Password Protect
    My boss wants to put a password on a folder in my documents. It's the commissions folder so he wants to be the only one able to open it. I have looked and looked and I can not figure out how to set up a password for that folder. If any one knows how or can give me any hints that would be great. I just can not figure it out. Thanks so much. Q.

  • 4. Word2K error "macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of Macro security settings" and external dictionary
    After checking everywhere I could think of in groups and elsewhere on the web, I finally stumbled on the solution to the error message "The macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your Macro security settings" that kept popping up in Word 2000 every time I invoked an external English dictionary (Random House Webster's Unabridged). This dictionary installs a .dll file in the Word Startup folder, which makes the macro for opening the dictionary accessible from a menu by right-clicking on any word in Word's text screen. The problem turned out to be that I'd had a system crash and had had to reinstall MS office. I was able to keep and re-use my old template file, however. That file contained the macros for invoking the dictionary. Apparently those old macros caused Word to look in another folder other than Startup. In any case, I found and opened the toolbar with the button called "RHUD" by right-clicking on the toolbars. Then I right-clicked on the toolbars, clicked on "Customize", and then under the toolbar tab clicked on Short-cut Menus. I then went through the menus and deleted (by dragging off the menu) the old menu items for the dictionary macro. I then dragged by holding down the Cntl key a copy of the new dictionary macro menu item to wherever on the shortcut menus I wanted to use it. Closed the toolbars, saved Problem solved. FWIW.

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.
