Solved: Microsoft Works Calendar not so good. Are there any good desktop calendars out there

Q: Solved: Microsoft Works Calendar not so good. Are there any good desktop calendars out there

I currently use the Microsoft Works Calendar as a PDA keeping track of appointments, birthdays, etc. but find that I can't print out reports according to categories. I can only print out days, weeks or months. Is there a good, free calendar that I can use and be able to import the information that I already have in the Works Calendar into that calendar?
Thanks in advance.

I am looking for a calendar/planner software to put on my son's computer so that he can plan out his summer events/activities.

Does anyone know a good program that is FREE to download, or any idea that would make this efficient planning-on-the-computer possible?

Also, it would be nice if he would be able to print out his events by week. (referrering to the calendar)

I downloaded some Microsoft updates, rebooted, and now my Microsoft Works Calendar won't come up. I've been to MS website and tried their fix - it didn't work. Next option is to delete Works and reload. My question is - will this deletion get rid of all of my data files along with the program? Also, is Outlook Express part of Works? I've tried to find out, but can't. I'm really concerned about making a mess of things.

A:Solved: Microsoft Works Calendar -works cannot access one or more files.......

Outlook Express is not part of Works.

What version of Works do you have and is it supported by Windows XP?

Looking for the best solution to get a miracast receiver on my tv. Looking for something that natively support project my screen I windows 10 that also projects sound and allows for extended mode(as opposed to being limited to mirror). I know most are wifi only so if there are any recommendations of ones that work well that would be helpful too.
I am looking for one that uses Ethernet as I know latency is much better over hardwire connection. I will be connecting wirelessly from my devices.
I have used an older Roku in the past, which worked well with my windows phone. But I never tested it with a windows 10 pc, and I'm not sure if it supports extended mode. I would hope that this feature may have been improved upon on newer Roku models.
I believe the amazon fire may also offer miracast capabilities. Not sure if they are limited to mirroring.
Looking for a budget friendly option. I have an xbox already so I don't necessarily need something with all of the apps. If it only did miracast that would be fine.
Lastly I have apple devices in my home. Anything that supports both miracast and airplay natively would be a huge plus. From my research this seems to be impossible to find. Anything that claims to work for both environments usually requires some software download like airparrot.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks everyone.

A:Looking for good ethernet miracast reciever that works with windows 10 extended desktop

I'm confused...if you need an ethernet cable miracast adapter, doesn't that defeat the purpose? Why not just use an actual video cable? Wouldn't both devices have to be hooked up to an ethernet cable for this to work?

Hello All,
This is my first post to this forum. I will make it short. I've had my PC for nearly two years now. I've never had an issue. I run Mozilla Firefox as my default Internet Browser and I've always liked it. Yesterday, I sat down to see that there was a new update. Like always, I downloaded. Then, when I went to browse the internet for a bit, it could not load the page. I then tried rebooting my router. No help. I tried Internet Explorer. Same thing. I then tried Chrome. Same thing. Only this time, on Chrome, it said something like "Error 101; Connection reset error". My roommate, who is in networking, and I tried several different things. Nothing seemed to do the trick. This issue is on my desktop, but, my laptop and roommates desktop work just fine. So, I'm guessing it must be something with my machine. I've looked up the Error 101 thing on google and I have seen many different forums, but no real fixes, if there is one. I'm curious to know if anyone might now a remedy for this problem. I've tried running my AVG and Spybot programs but they have found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance to all who read.--In Him, Joseph W. Brackins

I have compared a few, but am not up on the latest as to what to look for in one, so the comparisons don't help a great deal. Looking to have a somewhat exceptional processor, memory card readers, DVD burning capability that works out of the box (or at least is easily activated), and plenty of memory and hard drive space.

Last year I puchased a new computer with Windows XP. Most of the files were retrieved from the old C drive and installed on my new computer. I have been using Microsoft Works Calendar for many years, and rely on it for reminders to pop up. I recently had the business where I purchased the computer look at it because of a start up problem. Since then, it seems the reminders do not pop up for the specified time I want them to any longer, i.e., a meeting 3 days from now and a reminder would be put into the window and then click on OK. In the past, I've never had a problem with getting the reminders until recently. Do you have any suggestions? Barbara

I am working in Microsoft Works 8.5 and having problems with the calendar and address book. I have entered info. in the contacts in address book. When opening calendar, the birthdays, anniversaries, etc. are not correct. Calendar asks me if I want to correct, so I clicked yes. I then selected the correct date (from address book) and clicked "update now." When that is complete, I looked at the calendar for the correct day, and there was a different person's name listed on the day. Can anyone help? So frustrating. Thanks!

Cannot obtain correct printing from Microsoft Works Calendar.

The Microsoft site says this is common with Internet Exp.5.5-

I am using 6.0 and still have the same problem.

The calendar pages come out printed on 2 pages rather than

one page. The columns are elongated causing this to happen.

Have checked the printer with other programs and the printing

is correct.

This should do it.
Open the calender, from the file menu select "export > HTML". Remember where you saved it to. Close the calender and go to the file you exported and double click it. It should open in Internet Explorer. Now select print from the file menu.

I am using Windows XP and Microsoft Works Suite 2003. I have been using the Microsoft Works Calendar for home use, printing the monthly calendar in landscape format on my Canon i960 printer. This produces a 9"-6" one-month calendar.

Recently, the calendar started printing out only 7"-4" in landscape format. I have tried everything to correct this and cannot. Any other printing in other programs is normal so I do not think it is a printer problem. However, I cannot find the controls in the Calendar to restore the 9"-6" size. Any suggestions?

I've got a client who is using microsoft works 8.0 calendar and recently had to replace his hard drive and reinstall his operating system. The problem we're having is that all of his calendar data is stored as a .wcd file and the calendar will only import icalendar files and vcalendar files .ics and .vcs. Is there anyway to convert the data file from .wcd to .ics or is there a way to get the calendar to read a .wcd file? He is using Windows XP, service pack 2. All of my searching on Google lead me nowhere. Microsoft's website was no help either. If a .wcd file is from an older version of Works calendar, where can you get that version of works?

I've worked with computers for a while and I've done networking for a while. I am not a guru, however I'm my no means a novice, but have no idea what's going on here.

I have Comcast cable internet and my problem is that the internet is ungodly slow (also the wireless is just as slow). I went to and did the internet speed test and it was just a tad bit faster than 56k dialup. I unhooked the modem from the router, and plugged it directly into one of the computers, and it is blazing fast. So I know it's not the modem and it must be the router that is having the issues. Well after 3 modems (2, known working, that were laying around the house and then buying a brand new one from best buy) the internet is still slow when connected to the router. So I replaced the cable from the modem to the router, doesn't help. And I replaced one of the cables from the router to a computer thinking that all the cables magically went bad, that didn't do anything either. Could the modem actually be the problem where is just doesn't like routers anymore?

Thanks in advance.

A:Everything is good, but nothing works

Some things you can try here, listed in the order you should try them.
For wireless connections, remove all the stored wireless profiles and search for networks. You'll have to enter the encryption key again, which is sometimes the issue for connection problems.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

It has been decided that my computer is free from malware, so I've been referred to this forum.

I recently downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware program. The instructions were good and it worked fine. But, now I can't access my calendar for reminders. I get a generic error message saying "Microsoft Works 8 has encountered a problem and must close."
It does not say what problem.

I have a Works 8 installation disk, but I think if I just reinstall Works, I'll lose all the notes on my calendar.

The only other thing I use from Works is a simple database which is working fine. Only the calendar reminder feature won't run. If I reinstall Works I could lose all the info on my database and I don't feel like re-entering over 1000 files.

I have the database backed up and it looks like I 'should' be able to run the backup file if the original gets wiped.
However, although I have backed up all the files in Works calendar folder, I don't know which one(s) hold the reminder info. I've tried replacing existing files with the backups, but they don't run so it looks like the problem is not with the calendar data files themselves, but something more basic to Works 8.

I recently found that if I right click on WksCal.exe and choose "Run as..." and use "administrator ", I get a different error message. This one simply says that Works could not find some needed files and suggests that they may have been moved or eras... Read more

I have a Lenovo T430s running Windows 7. It has 3 USB ports. Up until recently, I was using a wireless Logitech M310 mouse. Upon switching to a wired Logitech B100 mouse, I noticed that the wireless mouse works in all 3 USB ports, but the wired mouse works in only 2 of the 3 USB ports. I tried a USB memory stick and it works in all three. I tried a reboot and the wired mouse still works in only 2 of the 3 ports. I borrowed another Logitech B100 wired mouse and it also works in only 2 of the 3 ports (the same 2 as the other mouse). Does anyone know what it going on?

A:Logitech Mouse works on some good USB ports, but not others

im not sure if its a windows bug, hardware bug, driver bug or a usb thing, but i had the exact same problem.

I have different hardware to you (a cyborg v7 keyboard and a RAT9 mouse), but same results.
mine sometimes decides it no longer likes the port its in and will work fine in the other port it never used to. ive googled and googled and never got an answer to my situation.

however yours being a laptop and not a desktop (like mine) it maybe easier to point the finger.

does it work in the 2 usb port that are next to each other and not the 3rd thats on its own?

if this is the case chances are it has a different controller on the motherboard. it could be solved by upgrading your chipset drivers.

AVG released a rather large 'fix' type upgrade for their AVG 7.5 Internet Security Suite program earlier this week.

The latest AVG is 7.5.646 with the latest virus data base of 269.5.2/766; perhaps it might be worth your while to try downloading the latest version that is Vista? compatible.

I am new to the forum, but not new to computing. I recently started having problems with this Vista Home Premium box not being able to resolve DNS names for only computers on my home network (all others XP boxes or Windows Server 2003). It can ping the IP addresses of the local boxes. It doesn't have a problem connecting to the internet. But this is a big problem when it comes to sharing files within my local network.

I have disabled Windows Firewall and McAfee Firewall and Services to try and diagnose the problem.

I have been googling this for a couple of days looking for ideas, but I have none. I have validated that DNS is running. NETBios over DHCP is enabled. Subnet mask is 255.255.255. DHCP and DNS server IP is correct.

Anything that anyone could point me to try? I am out of ideas.

A:Ping on Workgroup Computer Names Bad / IP Addresses Good / Internet Good

Unless you've got a DNS server running at home, it's rather unlikely that DNS is being used to resolve names of your home computers when pinging by name. Instead, the machine does a broadcast (on the local segment) to the effect of "if you're called XYZ, please get back to me and tell me your IP address".

If that's not working for you, my first inclination would be to suspect firewalls on the other machines - not necessarily on the machine exhibiting symptoms. Try disabling and even uninstalling (3rd-party) firewalls while you're troubleshooting, and also test what happens when all machines are booted to [safe mode + net].

Disk drives are finally so cheap that it is easily affordable to keep
two drives that are constantly mirroring each other but I havent
looked into it in 5 or 6 years and I have not seen anyone making a fuss
over any mirroring products.
Can anyone make a recommendation for Win-XP mirroring as I am
not likely to upgrade from it for at least ten years but I would consider
a new motherboard to use the latest SATA drive technology if I could
somehow migrate my XP software off my current hard drive..

A:good (simple, cheap and works) disk mirroring ?

Loads of choice depending what processor you have.
But easier than changing motherboard, would be just to insert a PCI Sata card, making sure it has Raid.
Then you could add a second drive, try to keep it as similar as possible to the existing one, make, size, etc, and use the Raid.
If your existing hard drive is IDE though, you could add two Satas, and use them for data. Reducing your existing drive to a System drive only.
You can also get IDE Raid, but ages since I saw a card for that.

Hi , Ive got some trouble with my pc , its a desktop acer pc and i bought it new from the store 3years ago and never touched his insides cause it worked perfectly untill now. I did check every cable , inside the pc and the power cable outside the pc. I couldnt find any wire that wasnt connected good, or any broken wire. The problem however is that when the pc is off it wont turn on easy, sometimes i have to press the button for 1000times before it starts. Also what is very weird is when the pc is on , it never goes off by itself as it should untill i press the normal off button in the startmenu, and it works perfect when its on. Also sometimes when I am trying to turn it on by pressing the button while touching the power cable , the fan of the computer turns on , but the pc itself is off and doesnt start. I hope you can help me with this problem soon.

I originally thought I was having a problem with Internet Explorer (see here) but now I'm realizing that it's the Microsoft part of my computer in general. I can no longer use the search function (the little "helper" pops up, but then nothing happens) as well as opening files in notepad - I can open Notepad and then open the file through it, but double-clicking a file won't open notepad, even when I specifically select it. As the other thread mentions, I can't get javascript to work in IE, nor can I download in IE or get complex html anymore. Certain other Microsoft applications work fine though (MSPaint, Calcualtor, Wordpad, regedit, msconfig.)

Both times this happened (about half of these are new - Notepad and the downloading are old) I was getting rid of a virus using Norton. The virus is gone now, but I can't use a large chunk of my normal MS utilities.

As far as I can test, no non-MS products are affected (such as Mozilla, which I have to use for this right now).

Im new to the forums, so if im not following forum rules feel free to correct me.

Ive tried reading a bit, and im getting that my black sceen problem is fairly common and that i can have several reasons.

Now, for more details: Ive had my computer for 2,5 years. 2 months back i decided to install an 120 gb SSD drive for my system disk and upgrade to win 7. After the upgrade and install I was all smiles as the performance boost from the SSD was all it was cracked up to be and more. Then struck after approx 6 weeks as the comp would not wake up after hibernating. The mouse cursor was visible, but nothing on the screen. Restart didnt help, and starting in safetymode gave the same result.

As i actually have good back up in place ( yey me) i didnt bother much about it and went ahead and did a system format and clean install. That worked great for a total of 10 days and it happened again.

Ive once again reinstalled, but as it annoys me to the brink of throwing my comp off the porch id like to find the source of the problem.

A relevant issue may be that ive had a bit of problems with my cabled network connection since the upgrade. Every now and then it loses connection to the cabled network and jumps to the WLAN. When i tell it to repair it works and it says that an IP conflict has been fixed.

Ive gathered from what ive read in the forums that error dumps and logs are essential. Obv i dont have any due to format. Also I guess hardware specs is important. Ive ran Be... Read more

There's a very common problem with computers nowadays and that is that mass-produced factory computer such as Dell and Compaq (HP) prefer to not only install what they want on your new, off-the-shelf, computer but they also insist on backing up the operating system to a partition on your hard drive and refuse to give you a physical copy in the instance that you ever need to format and reinstall.

The backup partition that they create is not invincible and can be easily infected and overwritten during your online adventures which means that you will never get a clean start no matter how many times you format and reinstall.

Once warranty has expired it's costly to get any help from these factory companies and Microsoft usually won't have anything to do with you insisting that you're using the factories OEM software and therefore have to refer to your PC manufacture for most situations.

The alternative, when buying a new PC, is using your local neighborhood mum & pop shop. If you can find a local, freindly, computer shop that you trust you can pretty much insure yourself that you're going to get A: a clean install & B: a hard copy of your operating system on disk.

BTW: This is a laptop.

I might be purchasing the following for $800, LMK wut u think.

Dell Inspiron 5150 Laptop:

Pentium 4 Processor 3.06 GHZ
Upgraded Liquid Crystal Display with ultra high resolution options
1.25 GB Kingston RAM, upgradable to 2GB
64MB ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility Video Card
60GB Harddrive

So we're looking at basically 1 gig ram, 3GHZ

The whole comp itself is basically upgraded to all ends. The screen does look really nice as it is a liquid display.

The RAM is very high for a laptop and the processor beats the doors off most of the previous comps which I have had (2.39GHZ)

I am getting a laptop because I travel mostly. I also game alot.

I know the video card isnt best for high end games but I play a game called Diablo mostly which requires next to nothing, altho I will replace the video card soon. How much would it cost to upgrade to a decent one do u think?

So I think its a pretty fast system, good deal?

Hey Guys,

One of our company's websites is having a strange problem. Here's what happens:

1. In Firefox, I type in the webpage.
2. I wait for it to load, and it keeps saying "waiting for ......" in the bottom statusbar.
3. After about 10 seconds, the page will FINALLY load.
4. I have graphed the load performance in Firefox with Google's Load Time Analyzer add-on and the initial connect/search for the website is what takes a TON of time. Once that is done the items on the page (even third party images) will load quickly.

The website is, but if you visit, you will most likely get the cached version (which loads ok). We have another method to get the dynamic page.

I have no clue to why it is doing this. The weird thing is that IE seems to load the page just fine (quick and easy).

Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks!

The Microsoft Security Essentials proved itself.

My notebook started to run weird, lately. I was suspicious and start scan the whole system with McAfee, however it stopped on 11% of scan and showed me the error. I started it once more, but it was disabled again.

I have been using the Microsoft Security Essentials on the Windows 7 and because I was thinking about switching to this AV on the Vista at the end of this year, I got rid of the McAfee Total Security and installed the Microsoft, just to give it a try on Vista.

Yes, it found and destroyed the trojan in the System32. Today, it blocked the another one during browsing the web.

I think, it's really worth to try. Cheers...

I had Norton 360 on my computer for about 6 months. I didn't really have any problems with it other than that it seemed to slow down my computer, and also it seemed like the service they provided for reporting malicious sites was commonly abused by people to report safe sites as unsafe.

An IT friend of mine recently told me I should fry Norton with Revo uninstaller and get MSE, so I did. I haven't had any problems with the uninstall like it seems some people do after uninstalling norton, and I haven't seemed to have any problems since getting MSE. I guess that's all good, but I am curious to hear some opinions about MSE; how good is it? How much can I rely on it?

I have the free version of Malwarebytes, and I typically scan everything I download with MB and with MSE before I open it. I try to run an MSE scan and a MB scan once a week.

Does anyone have any experience with Microsoft Security Essentials? I just removed McAfee and installed MSE. I would like to get some feedback on the program. Also, does anyone know a good clean up utility?

A:Microsoft Security Essential...good?

MSE has been found to have low detection rates. In my personal opinion, avast! 5.0 is much better.A good cleanup utility : CCleaner

I am using BitDefender Total Security 2010 with a license, and its great. I also did my research on it, and it came out #1 on many site reviews/tests... so I am just wondering is Microsoft Security Essentials good enough to replace my Bitdefender Total Security 2010, or I should just stick with Bitdefender as it does a great job of protecting. I just want the best protection for my PC. Feel free to share your experiences and knowledge.

A:Microsoft Security Essentials good?

I use MSE, and it works great.

Is MSE good enough to replace BitDefender? In my opinion, definitely. When your license expires, switch to MSE. There is no need to pay for programs like that anymore.

Put the $40 into some more RAM.

It looks like the Digital River iso downloads of Windows 7 are done. A person now has to enter a key on this page to get the iso. I have not confirmed yet if an OEM Windows 7 key will work. Maybe Microsoft will reinstate those links but I doubt it.

A:Microsoft Digital River iso downloads - gone for good?

Looks like they are gone. sari and Toffee informed me about it yesterday, apparently, a lot of people (including MVPs) aren't happy with that decision, but there's nothing that can be done. I have the Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bits .iso on my computer, which is one of the most popular, and I can access all the others be entering the product keys I have and also use my e5.onthehub (DreamSpark) account, but I think that uploading them and distributing them would be illegal. This is kind of stupid too. What if the person needs a recovery DVD to access the Recovery PE, but lost his product key on the sticker. The only way would be to grab it from Windows itself, but it wouldn't be bootable. Hopefully they'll make these .iso available to the public again.

I've been using Microsoft Photo Editor for the last 20 years, on literally dozens of computers - needed outside help (from the 7 Forum) for a fix 4-5 years ago, looks like I need it again from the Windows 10 experts.

I upgraded four HP computers from 7 and 8.1 to 10 last weekend with no apparent issues, but one of the 8.1 notebooks (which had the "fixed" version of Photoed.exe installed and worked fine before the upgrade) no longer opens photos with Microsoft Photo Editor, nor will MPE launch by clicking the MPE icon on the desktop. I finally gave up yesterday and downloaded Irfanview, which works fine, but I prefer the simple look and feel of Photo Editor.

Has anyone out there been able to get a "fix" that lets Photo Editor run correctly with Windows 10 after having it fail at the upgrade?

The computer in question is an HP-15T notebook, model 15t-r100, new 6/15/2015, 8GB memory, Intel 4th Gen Core i5-4210U Dual-Core processor, Intel HD Graphics 4400.


A:Good 'Ol Microsoft Photo Editor - Fix So It Will Run With Windows 10?

A problem may exist in that your Notebook is running the 64-bit version of Windows and as I recall PhotoEditor was only 32-bit [or maybe 16-bit from Win95/98]. Some types of older programs stumble when trying to use on a better computer.
