  1. I'm glad you got it going.
  2. I'm not sure if this will change your target area or not but you can try this.....in the properties box of your Briefcase, type in "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\My Briefcase" then click on the "Find Target"button. See if it then points to the correct item. Other than that, I am at a loss as to what to do next. I never use the Briefcase anymore but I used to use it between my laptop and my desktop. Maybe someone else might be able to help with it. If not, I would download the one I told you about and use it.
  3. Here's what I found out.......At work, I did the add/remove to install briefcase on my work machine. It was listed under accessories. Once it was installed to the desktop, it no longer shows up in the accessories area. That may be why yours is gone. As to your other question about the target area...... mine shows.............."C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\My Briefcase". Try that in the target area. If you can't get it to work, here is a freeware program that does the same thing......... http://www.rekenwonder.com/brfcplus.htm
  4. Humm, I was at work when I posted that. My Win98 machine there has it...but it is a 98se version. Now I am home on my Win98 machine, I have a briefcase on my desktop but like yours, it is not listed. Soooo, can you right click on a blank spot on the desktop, see if you have a briefcase listing under New. If so, just create a new one. If not, do a search and see if it is still on your hard drive. If it finds it in the search, just drag it to the desktop. If it is not there on the hard drive, you may have to reinstall it from the CD. I also found this......... http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;193764
  5. Yes it does........ go to control panel, add/remove programs,click the Windows setup tab. Highlight accessories, click the details button. Briefcase is listed. Put a check mark in the box to add it......uncheck the box to remove it.
  6. Thanks guys..........I finally did somethin' good!
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. Do as nightstorm said only look for the "setup.exe" file. Double click on that and it should reinstall it for you.
  10. I saw this one commin'!! Now Volt, calm down....... .........what about AOL?
  11. Did you try my first suggestion?
  12. 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!
  13. It almost sounds like "view as webpage" is turned on.............
  14. 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.
  15. Newdles, did you select new archive? Should've worked.
  16. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  25. 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.
