  • 1. Internet Password
    Windows XP keeps defaulting my Internet password to a 16 charactor unknown password which I have to delete each time and enter my correct password. Even though I click the save password box each time. How can I get it to default to my correct password.
  • 2. QuattroPro 5.0 + EMS memory
    i am moving my QuattroPro 5.0 spreadsheet to my new Windows XP Pro machine and I don't remember how to change the values for the extended memory (ems) within Options/Hardware. Please help.
    Hello: The problem is with Microsoft Outlook Express. The version is 6.00.2800.1123. I have a Pentium 4 1.9GHZ with 256k of RAM. The problem occurs when creating or replying to an email. When typing in text for example: "Microsoft Outlook Express is extremely slow when deleting text. Using the delete key to delete text is ultra slow". Now if I want to delete the second sentence, I place the cursor in front of "Now" and press delete. Normally the text would be deleted at a rapid rate. Not in my case, you need to press delete, one character is deleted, then you press delete again and a second character is deleted. If you hold the delete key down the text is not rapidly deleted. It is ultra slow. I have noticed that if you leave the email open that you are working on and exit out of Microsoft Express, the delete process works properly. Your assistance would be appreciated very much. If you need additional information, please let me know. Thank You, Mark Muschko

Is the taskbar locked? Right-click on an empty area and unlock it.

My Task Bar is not locked. I can see the vertical bar before the quick launch 
bar. and I can click on it and drag it anywhere inside the Task Bar but not 
outside it.

What changed between the time things worked and the time they didn't? You

Other than that, I'm sorry but I don't have an answer for you.

3.Quick launch bar stuck in task bar


I used to have a quick launch bar loaded with icons on the right screen edge
of my laptop (Thinkpad 600E, Win 2000 SP4 German) and a second smaller one
in the taskbar. .
After some rearranging I can't fully remember, that included removing the
icons from the smaller bar and removing the smaller bar completely, the
large bar had disappeared. After reactvating it, it is now stuck in the task
bar. I can still resize it and move it to the left or to the right of the
minimized programs in the task bar, but I can't move it *out* of the task
bar (e.g. to the scren edges). When grabbing it and moving the cursor, it
seems to indicate the movement, but when the mouse button is released,
nothing happens.  Does anyone have an idea what causes such an error?

Thanks for help.
