  1. It's bugged me too, although I don't have it. I just happened to see it this morning on another forum. I remembered you had a problem with it so I had to investigate it! Paid off!
  2. Guys, this tilde that everyone is concerned about, appears to be a glitch in an update from Microsoft. I found this on another forum............... "That "~" (tilde) file is most probably appearing as the result of installing the "April 2003, Cumulative Patch for Outlook Express (330994)". Microsoft is aware of the problem and is supposedly working on a fix. Many people are experiencing this problem and from what I've read about this problem that icon will also reappear when you reply to an e-mail and you have your Outlook Express set up to enter the persons e-mail address to your address book whenever you reply to an e-mail. You can either just put up with it or follow the uninstall directions for the patch at the link below." http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downlo...994/default.asp
  3. Do as nightstorm said only look for the "setup.exe" file. Double click on that and it should reinstall it for you.
  4. I saw this one commin'!! Now Volt, calm down....... .........what about AOL?
  5. Did you try my first suggestion?
  6. I don't have XP but in Win98, right click on desktop , "active desktop"...option to "view as webpage" As x5dr says.......just fishin' here too!
  7. It almost sounds like "view as webpage" is turned on.............
  8. I'm not sure if you can get to a c:\ prompt, but if you can try this. This also works as a system checkup. This is how you would perform this IN windows XP. 1.) Click start 2.) Run 3.) type CMD then click OK 4.) in window type cd c:\ to change to C:\ prompt if not already there 5.) at c:\ prompt type sfc /scannow WITH YOUR WINDOWS XP DISK IN DRIVE! It will varify your system against the disc and copy any files to their correct home if they are corrupt or missing. I hope this helps you or any other reader.
  9. Newdles, did you select new archive? Should've worked.
  10. Use Winzip and a CD burner. Start Winzip, click on file, new archive, select your CD burner, name the file in the file name area, click ok. The next box that opens will be the Add box. Select the drive that the files to be copied are on. Then select files, click add button. This will add them to your cd. If that cd fills up, you will be prompted to insert another cd.

    Virus Help

    Might try posting in the "Virus and Spyware" section.
  12. Most computers I know of has a volume control icon (in the form of a yellow speaker) resting in the system tray (beside the clock). Most also have a "mixer or equalizer" there too. Have you checked to make sure the volume control is not turned down or muted in BOTH places? I wouldn't go poking around inside the tower just yet. Do you have your earphones plugged into the correct jack in the back of the computer? There should be a stamped on indicator mark or color coded jacks on the soundcard to show you where to plug them in. I know you've heard this before, but just check and make sure. Sometimes, it's the simple things we overlook or assume we have done. I do it all the time!
  13. I moved the hardware accelleration slider back to none in there and that fixed a sound problem I was having. You're right JimD, the program itself won't fix it, but it might give him a good starting point.
  14. Try running DX diagnostics and click on the audio tab, see what it reports. (Win98)

    If I remember correctly, My onboard modem defaulted to com 1. Try to force your new modem card to install on com 1. I think that's what I did. It's been a very long time ago........that thing was a DX 25mhz....I upgraded it to a 550meg HD and a new processor to get a whopping DX 2-50.....wow.

    I spent several days trying to bypass mine but never did succeed. I would remove it but it would re load the next time I booted up.

    The old Packard Bell I used to have had an onboard 9600 baud modem that kept trying to load back in mine. I never could get it disabled in the bios so I ended up just letting it install.
  19. I have a DSL connection and I also use Winfax Pro software. Winfax dials out on the modem to send a fax. It don't interfear with your DSL connection at all. It does not use the DSL connection to send a fax.

    The run box usually has the last item that was typed and run listed there. That's no big deal, when you start typing it will change to what you are typing. We are allways glad to help out, so our time is not wasted. If you decide to try again just post back to this thread and we can help you.

    Thanks for explaining that Hulk! Flames24, you can always re install the program and not use it for playing your media, use WMP and configure it to play all media.

    A lot of your "Real" stuff is left behind in the registry when you un install it. You might search the registry for it and delete it there but don't delete anything in the registry before you back it up!

    Are you sure that's the file? Is it pngu3263.dll. If it is the one I ask, it looks like it is part of Real Jukebox media player. If that's it, just reinstall Real Jukebox. http://www.internetguideandmore.com/pngu3263dll.htm
  24. Bruce is right Volt, I must be gettin' it from just being plugged into the network because I don't even get on the net with this 98 machine. (just to update my AVG) We will have to investigate further the next time it pops up. I unplug mine and do the removal thing and sometimes have to manually remove a file or two. Before I plug it back up, I notify the co worker and he does his too. We then plug them back up but evidently we are missing something somewhere.
  25. Hi Volt! Yes, we both keep that on our desktop so we can boot to safe mode and remove it quickly. Sometimes we still have to remove some files manually. It just gets tiresome to have to do this every few days. I can't figure out why my W2k Pro machine has never picked it up. They are networked together....beats me!
