I have two computers networked together (thanks to davey7549 ).

Let's say I'm sitting at my desktop computer and I want to make a program that is on my laptop run on my laptop. How do I do that??

I know how to open and run it on the desktop using Network Neighborhood. That is not what I need to know.

I've tried using 'net start' (net start "program"), but I am not sure about the syntax.

Also, I don't want to use any type of software...I wanna do it on my own.

I'll fax ya a beer if you'll help me here

Ok I took the plunge and upgraded to IE7. HATE IT! where is the OE link on my toolbar or task bar or whatever that is? Now I am forced to go to my desktop to access OE whereas with IE6 there was the little envelop icon up top there that was my OE link. If I dont get a clear answer on this I am just going back to IE no matter what the risk as far as critical updates I just cannot STAND IE7 .For me IE6 was simple it was a clean look and simple use this IE7 is stupid, makes no sense it was just done to compete and from what I have heard from bigger geeks than I is, Microssoft is years late and about a million dollars too short (to corrupt the old cliche) with IE7,ok This is just IMHO but its how I feel abouti t.

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:

USED SPACE SHOWING ON C:LOCAL DISK =14.3 GB !!
FREE SPACE = 22.8 GB

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

Whats eating up all my space, and what kind of % of used space should determine whether to upgrade the hd in the future ?
Thanks

hello all;
heres a good one for the gurus.
i am running an hp compaq dc5850 sff. i have two hdd. one with all my America's Army stuff on it. on one i have the deploy client and game but nothing else that pertains to AA2.
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.
any ideas?

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: http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-restore-files 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): http://www.mayankraichura.com/post/2009/08/06/Avdvanced-Restore-via-Windows-Vista-Backup-and-Restore-Center.aspx.

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... Read more

" 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 !

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.

Thanks!

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.

Hello,
I bought my Dell 4700 about 6 months ago and was just going through the discs that came with it. I remembered that the Dell did not come with a Windows XP install disc in case I need to re-format. Is this normal? There is an option under Start....Accessories....System Tools to create OS backup disc. Is that what I need to make a disc or should it have came with one? Thanks
 

A:Um... wheres the XP install disc with Dell 4700?

I have a pc with win vista on hdd 0 and win 7 on hdd 1 both are a SATA connected disk drives ,the system boots up on the win 7 choice of o/s but not with the windows vista selection , when the system has booted in win 7 I can hear hdd 0 restarting and spinning up so I'm thinking that theres either a data parity error or a hardware issue with the disk drive ,what I would like to do is convert the pc to just run on windows 7 because I dont really use the windows vista o/s much , if its a hardware fault I would like to replace the hard drive but only have a single o/s on the system , I would like to know where the BCD file is kept and also how to go about this task of going from a dual boot to single boot system with just the 1 o/s.
any help would be appreciated

A:make a dual boot pc into a single boot pc ,wheres the bcd stored?

The Vista bootloader and the Win 7 bootloader are the same.

I can't answer your question but my guess would be that the boot files on are on the Win 7 hard drive, if it's the latter install.

I'd probably just install EasyBCD on the Win 7 drive...and then see if it automatically recognizes the Vista install. If not, then manually add the Vista install to EasyBCD, making Win 7 the default. That should (IMO) ensure that Win 7 remains bootable. Then just format/remove the Vista drive.

A simple way to find out...is to temporarily detach the Vista drive...and see if Win 7 boots. If it does, the files are on the Win 7 drive .

I am running the Nvidia Ti 4200 w/ TV out.

I want to:

1) be able record MMORPG games with my VCR. I understand my video card will this?

2) Bring TV images into my puter and then burn them to DVD. I loev football and wanna A) condense my BIG VHS's, into SMALL DVD's, and to be able to create my own highlight reels.

Thus, my questions are:

Is all this possible?
What equipment do I need to add?
How do I connect my puter to the TV?

Also, do not have a DVD burner yet, so any advice which one, or format to invest in?

Money is not really an issue here, but I do prefer to keep cost down if possible, beucase money is not an issue because I'm usually good at maximizing value, and minimizing cost.

I've looked extensively on-line for tutorials on this and found nothing 'cept some overtly out of date stuff.

ANY info at all would be greatly appreciated. Opinion, faq's, tutorials, whatever.

Thanks in advance ppl!

Hi there,

I am having major problems. I went to this site that said by answering surveys I could earn cash. So like a dummy I downloaded something there that it told me and when I turned my puter off that night and then went to turn puter on the next day it wouldn't boot up at all!!

So I turned it off and back on and hit the F key that it told me to so that I can restart the computer. Well I did that and my puter reconfiged itself. I guess like starting all over. I lost all my programs I had installed but my files were still there. None of my pws worked for yahoo.

I did a virus scan with Norton and it found 13 viruses yesturday as well as 3 today and some adware.

Although I am surfing the web my computer gets so far and then just freezes for 5 mins or more at a time. I can't play games or anything like that because of it.
Please help. I have windows XP on a compaq computer. I have internet cable with 516kb speed. But it is like I am on dial up. They tested my puter and it came back fast speed. and I also did a speed test from internet and it came back fast. I can load a page fast but then the puter just freezes.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

I'm running XP on IBM Thinkpad and my puter is having "issues". For one, my browers crashes or goes on hold at the worst times. I just offloaded 8GB of info to free up some HD, yet it shows I only freed up 2MB of space, I know Windows love to splash data all over the HD, but she's gone nutso now. I spend about 30 minutes of every hour, cleaning up the disk, memory and other junk. I can't prove it, but I thinks she's giving birth to multiple identical files and programs that are causing the riff between us. It's Valentines Day...Help!

Answer Match 36.54%

Excellent forum by the way!!!

Background: Windows XP, Norton products, cable, was SP1 but now SP2.

I am an avid gamer, but a novice to computer language. I joined a gaming clan and had to download IRC. Unfortunately (and this is where my gullibility comes in), I was told to type in several things into the IRC chat. I thought it was needed to hook up with their IRC channel. Um no. They were values and with IRC's help we think I pretty much gave them the way in. I was also told to just idle in the channel since that was our method of communication. I did so overnight many a time, despite my thoughts against leaving the puter on all night.

When I played with them, it always seemed as though the leader could see my every move. In the game, Call of Duty, you can follow others while dead only. In the 2 matches I played with them, right before it would start, I would get some crazy lag for a bit and then my ping sucked, but not horribly. Eventually, after my Cvar rates were changed one time and I was booted by the cheat protection (I'm 36 and don't need to win that bad), I knew someone had did something. I quit.

I deleted all values out of IRC per their Admin's and ran Norton, but found this recently in my Owner/Doc and Settings file (named tempdiff):

A:I know someone had control of my puter, is it done/gone?

Hello Buckinsteel and welcome to BC.I would say you were hacked pretty good. I did a little reading and .srt files seem to be associated with bridging Token Ring and Ethernet networks. Yours would be ethernet.If you have only used Norton I would suggest you download and run the trial version of a-squared Personal. Follow that up with Ad-Aware and SpyBot S&D and then post a HiJack This Log in our forum here. See How to submit a Hijackthis Log. When you post a log, put a link in your post to refer to this topic so the team is aware of what went on.Is tempdiff a file or a folder? In the interim I would suggest moving and renaming it rather than deleting it. If you can find ml1.srt and ML2.SRT rename them also.

Hi people-
Being a newbie who likes to figure things out by myself as much as possible, I thought I'd buy a $100 used pc (28 ram,win98,cyrixinstead 6x86mx) and get it up and running. I installed a lexmark printer and a microsoft optical mouse -which was a pain) and spybot ( removed a buncha porn dialers), removed almost everything except mic word and systray from start programs, removed all programs period that I wasn't familiar with and tried to get up and running. My biggest problems are now that it won't shut down... it restarts...always. And if I have more than 1 program running at a time ( like wordpad and IE) they all freeze,--- and I can't get to : tools- options- clear cache (etc) because I get an msg saying contact my system admin. Any helpful tips? much appreciated...
Thanks-

Now I want to reformat the drive I removed so that I can get rid of it.

I have:

the new 80 gig HD
a 6 gig HD
CD/ROM
CD/RW
floppy drive
External Zip drive
2 printers

Kodak digital camera w/dock
cable modem

Hope you can help me again... I wanna get the sides back on
this baby so I can put her back in her 'garage!'

Thanks!
 

A:format HD on outside of puter

Emdeekay,

Since the sides are still off the case it makes it easier.
Change the jumpers on the old drive to Slave position.
Remove your 6 GB drive and replace it with the old drive.
Reformat the old drive.
Put the 6 GB drive back on.
You don't have to actually remove the 6 GB drive, just connect the power and data cables from it to the old drive and let it hang outside the case.

Regards,
Roger

but I can't find the answer by searching for it, cuz I dunno exactly what the prob/s are, but it's been slowing breaking for awhile, doing things like not deleting a program after i went through the process of deleting it, but the big new thing that the straw breaking my technical camels back the most is that I can't open almost any programs, links, etc. I can't open most stuff on the start menu or desktop cuz it just says "userinterface not supported" for most of them, which includes microsoft updates, the control panel, my computer, etc. i can occasionally open a program by right-clicking & then opening as administrator, but doesn't work for most things. I called hp & they thought it might be a corrupt registry key (?) but i was out of warranty & out of $ so that's all the help they could give. there's more stuff like lots of links just do nothing, they pretend i didn't even click it!! & i can't system restore cuz i can't get there & i can't system recovery cuz it's grayed out as an option, as are all hp updates & tools & stuff. I think this is my biggest first prob, then later i'll ask about spyware & whoever's hijacked & possessed my computer!! Thanks!!

Please someone help!!!!!!
 

A:puter freeze-up

Shandar098a, welcome to TSG! -- but we need to put you in the WinXP forum where those most experienced with that operating system can ask you the right questions. It may well be a hardware problem if it's a new computer and a complete restore was done using a vendor's recovery disk.

Is the pc under warranty? Was XP the original operating system?

I'm going to leave it to others from here, but I think those are good questions to have answerd at the outset.

This new 'puter has Windows XP and tells me that before I do anything I should backup a set of recovery discs. DH did the shopping for me and first bought re-writable discs; can't use those, it says; so he then got CD -R music. Can they be used successfully??? Thanks for your help!
 

A:This new puter tells me . . .

As far as I know, the only difference between a music CD-R and a plain CD-R is that a royalty has been paid to RIAA, or whoever, on each disk so they cost more. Otherwise, they're the same.

make sure you have all your virus software updated,you should at the least have spy bot,adaware se personal,avg free suite. assuming you have these or others run them all.reboot keep pressing f8 boot into safe mode,run anti virus again,re boot back to normal if any success then you will need to turn off system restore,start,right click my computer,go to properties then system restore turn it off the run all scans again,if any of above to difficult download and run http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html just run it for a scan with your browser closed,it will give you a log file copy this and re post it back here,

Try resetting the bios to defaults if that does not work also try disabling video overshadowing also in the bios. If you do a full format of the harddrive try a quick one.

Hi everyone

My sister-in-law brought over her puter for me to fix. It was running slow and she asked me to check it, she had all sorts of spyware on it. That problem was completely fixed, I had the puter sitting on the desk - still turned on - and it just suddenly turned off. Didn't shut down, no warning, no window messages, just turned off like someone yanked the power cord.

I tried turning it back on, nothing. No beeps, no lights, nothing. Checked the power supply, both outlets were just fine - plugged in a little light to see.

I opened it up right away, and it's not the fans - both were cool and so was the whole inside.

Now, I know it's a Dell Demension 4300, it has Windows XP HE on it, and as for specifics, I can't tell you as I can't turn on the puter to look. It's about 5 +/- yrs old.

I've done Google searches and anything related always involved a power fluctuation or a storm, and there was neither last night. My husband and I each have our own puter's, which were on at the same time and nothing happened with either of them. None of the 3 puter's are plugged into the same outlets, each one's on it's own.

I did check all the cords and cables and everything's fine there.

One site said to take out the CPU and try to boot up again - I've no idea where or how to do that. Another said to check the BIOS, but pointless as I can't boot it up again.

I looked at the Motherboard and the other cards in t... Read more

Wondering where I can get a barebones computer just for surfing the Internet and wordprocessing. I've already got a hard drive and sound and video card--just need something cheap and relatively new (1 Gig or higher). Any ideas?

Sometimes lately I will be playing a game, running real nice and smooth, then out of the blue, it FREEZES on me: by that I mean NOTHING will work from keyboard to mouse, I MUST re-boot the machine and start over.
Can someone please tell me IF this points to the Graphics Card OR the CPU/Memory etc.??? I had my Graphics Card OC'd some and have backed off on the OC but it is still doing this. My CPU is also OC'd but MemTest etc. have all passed???

TKS Michael

I tried to defrag my pagefile (lotta fragments in there) using Sysinternals PageDefrag and puter locks up every time, never used to do that. I set it to defrag at next boot, reboot, countdown screen comes up, counts down and...nothing happens. Reboot again and same thing, then can't get back into Normal mode, have to go back to "Last best known good configuration." I'm running XP SP3, it's a Dell.
 

A:Puter Locks Up

I have never defrag my page file.......I would get into Last Known Configuration and then do a System Restore to a date before you tried to defrag your page file......

I sent him this link,on either Metcafe,or Filenet.Any way,it seem that whatever was on the site,it ate you this person MEMORY,and now he's pitching a *****.
I told him how to clean both temp folders,but that didn't help at all.

Here's part of his tears in his beer:

""Yeah, but it was a really messed up link that resulted in my computer losing over 40 GBs of memory. That was the only unknown site that I had gone to that day. So I have no other logical source to blame for the hijacking of my computer's memory.

Terrific, so maybe I'll just pull out my old Compaq Pentium II, with the 20 GB memory and 386 KHz processor and get some real work done. But heck, 20 GB of memory is a hell of a lot more memory than the 17.6 GB I now have with my present computer. Thanks a lot for the really hilarious link. HA HA HA! I enjoyed it bigtime. Oh, and many thanks for the anticipated expense and effort for me to try to recover the irreplacable photos, artwork, receipts, and correspondence that will probably be lost fixing this nightmare of a mess."
I'm going to send him the link to HJT,I also sent him some links on MajorGeeks.
HELP.
Thank you for reading,and I hope your help.
