  1. You have to have the 2574819 hotfix installed in order to install that update. Do you have that installed?
  2. Nahhh not offended at all. If we can't poke fun around here..there's no sense in being here. Bruce to be honest..most of the phones I've owned have been good ones except for the one I had before this iPhone. It was an HTC HD2. The wife and I both had this phone and both had numerous problems. Her's was replaced 3 times and mine twice. The problems never went away...so I was glad to get this iPhone. Oh...and Bruce..well he's the resident pokester!
  3. Just chimmin' in......iPhone 4s...best phone I've ever owned.
  4. Humm..don't know a lot about Android but I think 8.0 or above is able to use usb U-disks. Don't know about Android 7 Might try plugging the drive in before you boot up. Sometimes that works.
  5. Caintry..that's about the only thing I haven't tried. I just used the drive as a backup drive....one of 3 that I use to back up the same files.....Never can be too safe! I downloaded Diskdigger and I will try it when I'm not so busy...I'll let you know how it turns out.
  6. I just had the same problem on one of my 3 external LaCie hard drives. Nothing I did could recover the files....if I was able to run anything on the drive. The drive started doing that on a hard power shutdown..(power went off in the whole building for a few minutes) Upon restarting my computer...that one drive was slow to respond...almost like a hung browser page. The drive was then listed as "raw" format. Nothing I tried worked to recover the files. I even used a Ubuntu Live CD. Windows continued wanting to format the drive for me....so I said ok...let's format it.....NOT..Windows woul
  7. I downloaded a free red cursor set for my XP laptop. I'm sure they are available for WIndows 7 too....just be careful you don't get any "added" spyware with it...read the installation screens closely to see what is checked to be installed.
  8. Try booting to safe mode and updating DirectX... Also..is your XP computer up to date? All service packs installed?
  9. I think you need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package......http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555
  10. Just a thought......you say you use it when you travel.....is it trying to connect to your home router or a different wifi connection? I've done that before with my netbook....for me it was just a matter of selecting the correct wifi connection.
  11. You can shut it down through task manager then uninstall it. Control-Alt-Delete key to bring up task manager. Look for Itibiti.exe running under the processes tab. Highlight it and click the end task button. That should shut it down. Then you can uninstall it. You can also do a System Restore to the computer back to a time before you messed it up. You will only loose any "custom" system settings that you made after the restore point. Personal files won't be lost.
  12. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-networking/windows-could-not-start-error-1068-the-dependency/7963d72a-5d73-44fe-8316-058c46235737 Look at the 5th post down ...
  13. I found this in another forum... http://forums.techarena.in/operating-systems/1127074.htm
  14. This may be a long shot but look in "services" and see if the "Remote Procedure Call" (RPC), "Remote Procedure Call" (RPC) Locator, and "Server" services are running. If not, right click the service and start it or restart them then reboot the computer.
  15. According to your profile you are using Windows 7 64 bit. What version of Excel are you trying to run. It may not be designed to run in 64 bit Windows, You may have to try running it in compatibility mode.
  16. For starters, check to see that the "use proxy server" is not checked. Some viruses and malware like to change this setting. To do that right click your Internet explorer icon, select properties. Click the connections tab on the next window that opens. At the bottom, click the LAN settings button. Make sure there is a checkmark in "Automatically detect settings and no check mark under the Proxy server. If you have to change one, exit out and click apply-ok. Next click on the start button and select run and type in the box "CMD" without the quotes and click ok. In the black box at the blinkin
  17. Juliet gets the same thing I get...very long wait times to get in...then everything seems normal.
  18. Wow...I had trouble getting in this morning. I entered my user name and password..then clicked on "user to user"...but it never did load. After a minute and 10 seconds I closed my browser and cleared cookies. I tried again and still took about 30 seconds to open the user to user section. Somethings still not right.
  19. Same here.....when I log in...and click any forum.....takes about 20 - 30 seconds to load..afterwards everything seems ok.
  20. You might reboot into safe mode and select "last known good configuration"...sometimes that will work.
  21. Although no longer supported by Microsoft, you can try their Windows Installer Cleanup utility. I've had no problems with it. Get it here. It's also free too!
  22. Have you tried the "solution" that is posted here? http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/itprovistanetworking/thread/2eb3fd6d-ca85-47b5-b94d-371af19b3af5 Scroll down toward the bottom
  23. In device manager, scroll down to "Universal Serial Bus Controlers" and expand. Right click "USB Root Hub", select properties. You will have a "General" tab, "Power" tab, "Driver" tab, "Details" tab, and finally a "Power Management" tab. Click the power management tab and uncheck the box that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". I am looking at the XP screen on my second computer as I type this. Yours should be the same. There should be similar properties for that PCMCIA card somewhere to make the changes.
  24. In device manager, right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Properties." Click the "Power Management" tab and then un-check the check box labeled as "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." Maybe that will fix the problem.
  25. Sir T... if you're using a router/modem...unplug them from the power for a few minutes to reset them. Sometimes that will restore your connections to normal speed.
