Wheres the REST of googles results ?

Q: Wheres the REST of googles results ?

I typed "tablet wallpaper" into google images. It says

"About 25,800,000 results"

I keep clicking "Show more results" until I get to "page" 50 and it ends with a picture that says "I heart ipad".

Then thats it. No button to load more results. Google said 25,800,000 results. That certainly wasn't 25,800,000 results.

A: Wheres the REST of googles results ?

I did a search using your exact phrase and my results were: About 47,100,000 results (0.15 seconds)A quick google search for a definition of those results netted: Statistics Bar: Describes your search, includes the number of results on the current results page and an estimate of the total number of results, as well as the time your search took. For the sake of efficiency, Google estimates the number of results; it would take considerably longer to compute the exact number. This estimate is unreliable.Bold is mine.From the preceding I extrapolate that the guesstimation number is a product of Google's algorithm for every possibility of those two words and how they would be used as well as them being used combined. As well as possibly wall and paper individually . To get every single one of those guesstimated results you would likely need to refine your search parameters repeatedly. For example Samsung 'tablet wallpaper' then ipad 'tablet wallpaper' so on and so on. Not to mention probably include every known language as well. This is my theory.Also there was this bit of information about search results:Ordered by relevance to your query, with the result that Google considers the most relevant listed first. Consequently you are likely to find what you're seeking quickly by looking at the results in the order in which they appear. Google assesses relevance by considering over a hundred factors, including how many other pages link to the page, the positions of the search terms within the page, and the proximity of the search terms to one another.Both quotes from:

HI ti ALL,
I just opened an account in GMail and after being in Hotmail for years I don't find GMail to be as easy to use. It was quite easy to import my contacts list over from Hotmail.....BUT using it in GMail is NOT so easy!

1st EX: I want to edit a contact, the GMail HELP says select the contact then click on the text edit icon I must be going blind, I DON"T see the ICON anywhere on the screen

2nd EX: I want to compose a message and put some contacts in the BCC slot and others in the TO slot. I don't see a way to do this.

Finally - the tutorials GMail have on line are too miniscule is there a manual somewhere that I could either download or buy a copy?

ALL input will be greatly appreciated

Hey guys I have installed Googles Free version of Spyware doctor- and have used it for over a year- no problems-- but all of a sudden it does not work- and I cannot even uninstall it-or overwrite it-- so I e-mailed PC Tools and htis is what they said to do---

In response to your query, according to the log, it appear that you are running Spyware Doctor version 5.5 and you are trying to reinstall the program with the latest starter edition of Spyware Doctor.

Please note that you will need to uninstall your current version before using the latest version.

Please follow the steps below to uninstall Spyware Doctor.

1. Click on the Start button. The Start menu will appear.
2. Select ''Shut Down'' from the menu (''Turn off Computer'').
The 'Shut Down Windows' dialog box will appear.
3. Select ''Shut down'' (or, ''Turn Off'') and click the Yes (or OK) button.
4. When the computer starts back up, begin immediately by pressing the F8 key repeatedly until the Windows Startup menu appears with various options.
5. By using the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard, select 'Safe Mode'.
Do not select 'Safe Mode with networking' or any other modes.
6. Login to your account (if asked).
7. Wait and eventually Windows will start in Safe Mode.
8. Navigate to the Spyware Doctor folder (which by default would be under 'Crogram Files') please delete this folder. ... Read more

As l have just changed to W7, had to of course try out IE9.
So far for me, it's not too bad, but the fonts are really annoying. Or perhaps l should say the size of the fonts!
I've installed the Google Toolbar and everything that l type into it needs a magnifying glass in order to read it. Really difficult to read with impaired vision!
Every alteration available from the toolbars only changes the web pages displayed, but is there a way l can change the size of the toolbars text itself and especially the size of text entered into the Google search box?
Hope this makes sense.

A:The installed font of IE9s toolbars and Googles search box

I see from your System specs you are using the wrong resolution for your monitor try setting it to the correct one which is
1680x1050 Acer P4 P224W 22 inch Widescreen Monitor - Silver ET.EP4WE.B05 - Acer Direct
Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Display > Adjust Resolution.
Next step would be Display> Make text and other items larger or smaller.
There is also an option in IE9 Open Tools > Internet Options & under the advanced tab look for Accessibility > reset text size to medium for new Windows & tabs.
Depending how bad your eyesight is it might be wise to set your text larger before changing resolution.

I am unable to use my desktop computer in Internet Explorer AT ALL due to CONTINUAL pop ups of Google Error Page. It is like you are on some x rated site and pop ups just keep opening up. This seems like a virus as it is ONLY Google page that says Error and Not Found then The requested URL/ what ever you have typed in is not found on this server.
I think some one has put a virus in I.E. to hurt Googles Reputation. What ever it is, I can
not use or sell my computer with this virus on it. Can anyone help me?
If I use a different browser like Firefox I am OK. But I am going to sell this desk top and many people use Internet Explorer.
I do not know how to make the hijack log either, can you tell me what to do please or direct me where to go? This is VERY VERY IMPORTANT. I have TO GET RID OF THIS VIRUS OR I can't use my computer.

My older second reserve laptop - Toshiba Satellite A30-921, came with a 40gb hd and 512mb ram with Winxp (approx 5 years old)
Decided to try and get it back to life and give it a second chance, as in the past it kept rebooting every 10 minutes, and was so slow when it was working.
Used the product recovery disks for a fresh new start, removed one of the 256mb memory modules and replaced it with 1gb, so now up to 1.2 gb ram.Its even managed to install Windows SP3 without any hitches.
Only need to use it for email/ surfing at present, but would like to download stuff in the future.
Have installed Norton 360 as I have this on my other laptop with a 3 user licence.

Up to yet, no problems BUT, can you answer me this:


I have not installed any Office suite/word/works/excel etc, I have not downloaded any pictures, music,documents
Space being used for "Documents/shared docs"= 5mb (sample stuff)
Space used on currently installed programs (taken from control panel) = 312mb

so i decide to start to set up AA2 on the vista hdd as it is on xp hdd, the first thing i do is go to my maps website of choice and start to download the user created maps i like. everything looks good, i choose the correct directory and file and even hit the open folder button to make sure the map is in the right place and it is.
now the good part, i close everything up and go back to the map to make sure it will start and play correctly and it is not there, i search for it from the search window at start and search tells me the closet it could find was the same map but on the E drive, which is where the xp hdd is when i boot vista.

Im running Outlook 2002 on 5 different computers via a server running Microsoft Exchange Network. When I assigned delegate acces to four of them, there was no fight. However, one of them will not let me assign delegate access no matter what I do. I have tried using the add-in manager to set up the delegate option, but it doesnt do anything. I cannot see the delegates tab in options, nor can I see it in the inbox options. I am trying to assign delegate access for read access to the inbox, and read,edit,modify access to the calendar. Anyone have any bright ideas? Cause im tapped out. Thanks

A:Wheres the Delegates?

If you right-click the inbox (or calendar) and go to Properties, do you see a Permissions tab? You should be able to grant permissions from there. It works much the same as the delegates tab, but when you grant people permissions in delegates, it also gives them the ability to "send on behalf of" the user, which may or may not be what you want. Let us know whether the permissions tab is visible and whether that's helpful, or not what you're looking for.

can someone help? I just ran restore from a backup on an external harddrive, it took over 5 hrs, then finished. But where is all my 'restored' data?? I cant find it....

if this is too vague tell me and i will try to explain further but its pretty straight forward....

is there something more i must do?

A:wheres my restored data?

If the restore ran properly, the restored files and folders should be in the same places they were when you did the backup. It sounds like either there was a problem with the backup or there is a problem with the restore. Let's make sure you're doing things correctly before assuming there is some problem with the system or the hardware or the backup file - which we will address later if this doesn't help. The following should help:

Here's an article on the restore procedure: just to make sure you're doing it right. It's a selective restore of a full or selective backup (not a complete restore of a complete backup) - but since you did a full backup it matches your process closer than a complete restore would.

Here's another excellent tutorial on the Restore process: Restore Backup Files.

Here's an article on how to use Advanced Restore (when normal restore doesn't work):

I was browsing through using FireFox - had a couple of tabs open - one or 2 tabs related to localhost.
When I switched tabs and clicked on a browse link in one tab (one with phpMyAdmin loaded, to browse through the rows), I got the blue screen.

Memory got dumped as usual. Told to CHKDSK /F to check for drive errors etc.
I dont get this often. Probably thrice in the last 3 yrs - and the first 2 were hardware related I think.

After a restart, I got the Technical Error Report and that something created at

But both these dont exist.

How can I know what went wrong and where ?

In this picture, you can see a settings button for the Loudness Equalization enhancement. When I go to the enhancement tab, there is no settings option (or "Preview" or "Restore Defaults"). Why is this? I wanted to see what the "Release time" option does, and I can't get to it.

Also, while I'm here, I was wondering if there was a way I could "tweak" loudness equalization. I want to make low/quiet sounds louder, but I don't want to reduce the volume of louder sounds. Is this possible? I've been googling for ~2hrs and I came across the Release time setting, and I was gonna mess with it, but it's missing.


A:Loudness Equalization - Wheres the settings button??

No settings available... unfortunately!

It looks like MS has licensed some of the "Waves" DSP technology, pretty high end software... part of the L-series Maximizer. It's a combination Limiter/Compressor and I think they figured the general public wouldn't know how to set it up. Too bad, it could use a litttle tweaking, the attack is a little slow.

Greetings and thanks for any help here...
Back story...Last week I bought a new computer running Windows 7 Pro,
Before my new computer arrived I installed Microsofts Easy Transfer program on my old XP computer , ran the program and sucsessfully transfered my files on to a new blank CDRW disc.
Today I fired up the new computer for the first time, ran the Easy Transfer program , pointed to the CDRW disc and the program formated as expected.
when the program was completed and files were apparently transfered and the programs status window closed. and that was it, nothing more.....
I unhid my system files and and searched everywhere with no resolve (sighs..) would one of you fine folks please help me locate my transfered files as the are very important to me.
Thank you again.. I'll check back often

A:Used Windows Easy Transfer but now wheres my files?

In the start menu go to Accessories -> System Tools -> Windows Easy Transfer Reports and open it up.  The Transfer Report will show what has been transferred.  If you click Documents it should show you exactly where it's placed your document files and what they were.

hi . i recently bought this new mother board by Asus, P5RD1-V. the problem is that when i try to install windows xp on my SATA HD, after the initial stage during which the setup copies all the drivers and then gives that option " to install windows XP press enter" plus one or two other options, when i press enter i get this massage that says " setup didnt find any hard drives installed on your system. check to see if any HD is installed .... " and then it goes on to say things like check your drive configuration or the drive health and things like that. all this when at the the bootup it does show the hard drive connected at SATA port 1. !! ? i run seagate diagnostic tool on it and it showes the drive as perfectly healthy. i dont know why is it doing it. the hard disk is spanking brand new. the same goes for the 120GB WD SATA. the interesting thing it has no issue with the good old IDE HD's. i connected my old maxtor IDE hard drive and the setup ran as smooth as it can get. i dont know why setup isent detecting the SATA HD. is it the board or is it somthing else. any ideas !

I wanted to move my user files, temp files, and librarys ( my document, music, pictures etc....)
i managed to manualy moved the library file folders onto the HDD into a new folders that i made and when asked to install something i redirect to the HDD. Not sure if this was the right approach i feel like im setting myself up for some kind offile mix up

Is there a way to simply move all my user files together and have them redirect to my HDD?
or some kind of step by step guide to setting up this particular hard drive config.

This is a nice little system. You apparently want to run a 32bit OS - else I would get 1GB more RAM. The i5's may also be a better choice, but that is a question of price. I would take an extra SSD for the OS, but now we are talking at least an extra $150. I also did not see a PSU on your list (unless I missed it in the case). An Antec is a good choice, but get at least 550 Watts. The optional 120mm middle fan may also be a good idea. As usual, the choices are endless.

So I had this 80 MB video clip, 15 minutes long on my computer, I burned it to a DVD and such...and now I noticed that it (along with several other large files/long videos (50+ Megs, 10+ minutes) are now all under 30 fact, I think each one is only 24 seconds long. After 24 seconds the audio continues but the video doesn't play...instead it just skips to random images that come after that 24 second clip...

Moving the slider bar plays the video you might find had the slider bar been moved acording to a 15 minute movie, but once the remaining seconds tick down , it goes still and has the same problems as earlier...

So I figured maybe it was the DVD and moved it to my HDD...still the same problem. So I downloaded another (same file name, different folder) and it's playing back the same way...I don't even get the full version after re-downloading it! Please someone help.

Our family has set-up a network between two computers. One is an Aptiva IBM on Win98SE and the other is a custom-built one on WinXP. We are connected by two network adapters and a cable running between them. We are also rather new at this thing. Anyway, we set it up- establishing everything from the WinXP computer (obviously bigger hard drive space and faster). We, however, have run into a small problem that the WinXP computer can see both itself and the Win98 one on the network, but the Win98 computer can only see itself on the network. Also, sometimes the WinXP computer can see Win98 but cannot access the 'Shared Document' folder on the Win98 one.

This is proving quite fustrating, as at an earlier point we were able to get both computers to see themselves and each other, and perfectly access each other and then without restarting the computer or changing either one majorly... we found ourselves with the problem described above.

My question is: Why is only 2.6 GB of ram recognized when I have 4GB? How do I make my system recognize 3.something GB like any 32-bit system should?

I am running windows vista home premium 32-bit on an HP pavilion 2000 notebook.

My BIOS recognizes i have 4gb of ram. System information also says i have 4gb installed but only 2.62GB Total physical memory.

The ONLY other thing that takes memory is my geforce 6150 video card which takes 128 MB.

I DO understand that 32 bit systems do not recognize the whole 4 GB of ram but it should be above 3GB not only 2.6. WHERE IS THE REST OF IT! How do I make windows recognize it?

My BIOS is up to date and has only a few options I can manually change of which only ONE deals with RAM: changing how much the video card takes.

Please you guys shed some light on this situation. There are a lot of people out there asking the same question and their threads end up talking about 64bit vs 32bit systems.

as I've already mentioned, I don't expect my 32-bit system to recognize the whole 4GB, but why 2.6 and not 3.25?


A:Only 2.62 GB of RAM recognized. Where is the rest?

Hi, this is an often asked question and the answer is that your system is fine the amount of ram that you see is what windows has left after reserving some for its own purposes. 2.6 is more then enough for good performance with Vista. Do not worry that others report 3.5 gb your system is not going to suffer for it on the contrary it shows that the system is reserving memory for it's more efficient use ie:- 2.6 is superior to having 3.5. Relax you are doing fine for 32 bit.

Control panel/admistrative tools/computer management/disk management, where you will see a map of your drive.

Presumably it will show C as 150 gigs and about 350 gigs unallocated.

I know it says it is compatible with DDR2 but is that any type of DDR2 memory in the world? or does it have to be specific. sounds stupid i know but i didnt want to buy the board and then find out that i needed new RAM.

Also my PSU its a Hiper Global award winning PSU i got down the computer fair, so its not a cheap PSU but, its only 530W. Will i be needing a stronger one? I have E6600 CPU, 8800GT, 4GB OCZ 800 RAM at the moment but will this new MB and CPU the E8400 need more wattage?

Also if you could answer this also.
Overclocking the CPU, do you have to do it in the BIOS? or can you do it diffrently? which way would you suggest if there is a diffrent way.

Today I installed Windows 7 from the disk on my old XP OS. This proved to be not what I wanted. I realized It installed Windows 7 but kept my old XP os. I noticed I had two operating systems to choose from. This is nt what I wanted. So I did a little looking around on the web and realized I need to install Windows 7 directly from the start up. So I did this and when I was intially installing I choose to reformat my hard drive. On XP my one hard drive was partitioned\. One part was for the XP OS and the other part was used for music and videos. I reformated the large portion that was for music and videos. Then Windows 7 installed. Everything ran well and I began to add any needed drivers. I went to install Adobe and I realized I only had a 10 gig hard drive not an 80 gig like before.

What happened? How can I get my other 70 gigs or so back? I'm kind of computer savy so any ideas to fix this will probably be understood at some level.

Can you do a screen snip of your disk management ?

Computer one: laptop HP w/ AMD Turion 11 Ultra. Computer two: AMD Phenom 11 X4 955 both running Windows 7, 64 bit, Computer three: Intel E8400 , Computer four: Intel E7400, Computer five: EEEBox Atom N270. All running Windows 7, 32 bit. All part of a home group, home network. Computers one and five are wireless, computers two, three and four are hardwired. All through the same router. All was working fine. Have 32 bit printer connected to computer three which computers four and five could print to thru the network. Have 64 bit printer connected to printer two that all computers can print to thru the network. File sharing was working through all computers to all computers. Was running mulit-player game play through computers one, two and three as these were computers that have the games on them. Suddenly computer one was not showing itself on the network. Thru it could see the other computers on the network but could not open up their shared folders. The other computers can still see all the computers on the network and open up all the shared folders, even computer two that canít even see itself. LAN play between all the computers still works, even with computer two. What has happened to make computer two not see itself or able to open up the other computers it still sees on the network?

I have ie-spyad and script defender on it
ran spybot newest one and caught some wild tangent and fixed
cwshredder clean
cleanup deleted all the temps, cookies, history
Crapcleaner cleanded the registry
Avg I ran and it caught 3 trojans they were deleted
and a couple of unwanted programs I deleted like terminator.exe and one other.

I am wondering if something should come out of the log causer it isn't running quite right.
seems a little slow and sometimes when you open a window like my computer or control panel or the internet it will open like half the window and take a little bit to open the rest. the last thing I was going to run was the sfc /scannow but it needs some files and the person doesn't have the disk. They have IE 6 they don[t want IE7 so I stopped it from getting on. If someone could take a look at this log and let me know then at least I no I will have to look somewhere else. Thanks

I was downloading Ubuntu and left the computer on because it takes ages. Microsoft took it upon itself to give itself permission to automatically install updates, did this and restarted the computer when the download had done about 500 MB of the 600 or so MB. This is saved and says it is "part". Can I restart the download, but just get the remainder, not restart from the beginning? Thanks.

A:Interrupted Download - Can I Get The Rest?

Assuming the file is not corrupt, you could remove the .part extension from the file and rejoin it with a FTP client that supports resume, such as Filezilla. You would do this by using the FTP client to save the file to the same directory. This of course assumes that your download source will be from an ftp address.

recently i have purchased a d-link wireless 108G MIMO ADSL2/2+ router and matching notebook PCMCIA adapter.

i followed all the instructions to install both items and the network seems to connect.

but here's where my problems begin. the router will not connect to my adsl line. sometimes it does and then loses the connection very quickly or when i try to access it.

secondly everytime i restart my notebook it seems to uninstal the drivers but doesn't register doing so. the adapter stops working and when i try to access the d-link config program it says driver not present.

if you need any more info please reply

I am running Windows 10 Home, upgraded from Windows 7. I'm trying to reinstall Windows 10 via the 'Reset PC' function. Each time I try the ensuing restart results in WDF_Violation. This error occurs regards whether I initiate the function in safe mode or the other ways.

I've seen this problem described several times in this forum, although none in 2016, but I don't see any solution. Please see management attachment below.

A:WDF_Violation trying to Rest PC in windows 10

Try a clean install, there are no logs in your zip most likely because the changes are reverted back.
