  • 1. Office 2003 icons have changed to the appearance of Office 98 icon
    Hello there. Has anybody experienced the above. The icons in my office 2003 suite have changed to those of Office 98. Have no idea how this has happened. I have uninstalled Office and reinstalled and even completely installed the OS but to no avail. I cannot find a setting anywhere and have no further clues. I'd appreciate any ideas. Many thanks
  • 2. Open other user's Calendar button
    Several of my coworkers and I have recently upgraded to office 2003. XP or 2000 had a button to open another user's calendar. Some of us have this with the upgrade and some of us do not. Does anyone know how to get it on those that do not. It doesn't show up on the customize menu. The one's that do work say something like "Open Other User's Folder version 4.5" The installs should have been identical. Thanks in advance.
    Hello to all, I am aware I may not be in the correct section, but what does OE come under? Anyhow, here goes:- On PC-A I had a client who has 6 email accounts in Outlook Express!!! They wanted all of these accounts, emails and everything transferring onto PC-B which also had 4 other accounts on it, and the existing information deleted on PC-A. I used a freebie backup utility I have always used for OE to back everything up, and restore eveything onto PC-B. Somethings such as account information I had to do manual through exporting and importing. Anyway, when I did the restore of the 6 accounts onto PC-B, so hopefully this would give PC-B 10 accounts!!! the data was overwritten and I ended with just the 6 accounts from PC-A. All data etc was lost for the other 4 accounts which initially existed on PC-B. Hope you can follow this. I had to recreate the 4 accounts but couldn't retrieve the emails or address book items. Basically, my question(s) really are:- 1) Does anyone know of a good freebie utility that will back everything up in OE? 2) Secondly, what is the simplest way to do this? 3) Finally, is there an easier way to do what I was trying to achieve ie transfer all accounts, emails, address books items and add them to other accounts on another PC? Many thanks to all, Jeff

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.

Have you tried Shift-Del to delete while bypassing the recycle bin?

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.
