  1. When you remove the inherit permissions option, you're prompted to either 'remove all permissions' or 'copy what's already there'. What you want to do is copy what's already there. Then, you'll be starting with the exact same permissions that you already have and you can adjust these as needed. You'll be able to remove the copies of the the inherited permsisions that you don't want.
  2. It sounds like a problem that I ran across not long ago. Remember, that even though you can't drag & drop or copy & paste between windows, you can still use the command line copy. See the discussion here: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1533110
  3. Your userinit.exe file is the real problem. It needs to be replaced with a good copy. You can expand a new copy from your installation disk http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888017. Do not just delete the existing file - you will not be able to logon until it's replaced. Once you get a good userinit.exe file, turning off System Restore & turning it back on will take care of those others.
  4. The first place to look is at firewalls- for testing, temporary disable the software firewalls on all the machines. This includes the windows firewall and any third party firewall that might be included with your antivirus software. Post back with the results.
  5. I'd be inclined to point the finger at Yahoo. Just because the web interface delivers mail properly, doesn't mean that a client connection will. You are using a paid Yahoo account, right? What happens if you send a message to yourself?
  6. You need to take ownership of the old folders http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421
  7. It definately looks like you have plugin problems. At this point, the best thing might be to reset them & go from there. Once you do this, you might have to install some of them again, but you'll be a lot better off. Go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab, Reset button.
  8. I couldn't tell you; hopefully the owners manual can. Recently I've seen similar posts caused by the blacklisting mechanism of some Belkin routers (that's why I asked that specifically). Perhaps the Zyxel routers use the same blacklist system.
  9. It still works for those of us that are grandfathered & continue to access Hotmail via OE or Outlook on a regular basis. However, Windows Mail in Vista won't even let you add a Hotmail account. Here's part of a message that I received in Feb, 2005:
  10. Most of those seem to have a black list feature as well. If possible disable the black list function & test.
  11. Are you using a Belkin router with "Black List Defense"?
  12. Before starting, uninstall or update any toolbars & add-ons that might not be the most recent versions. These are where most of the 'problems' lie.
  13. In addition to the K9webprotection one mentioned earlier, this one is good also http://www.naomifilter.org/
