How to install a printer to Vista when the maker doesn't supply drivers by Micky
This is probably a hypothetical question, because the expected order of events in my computer setup probably won't give me an incentive to do this. But it's a question nevertheless. Please don't argue with me that even though I can do it, it's a waste of my time. As I said, it's a hypothetical question. I'm runing Vista, which is a lot like Win7. A friend gave me a laser color printer, a...

The travails of installing a printer. by Micky
The travails of installing a printer. Don't read if you don't like stories. After all the discussion in the other thread, I figured I'd start to try to install the printer, the Brother MFC6800. Because I couldnt' get it close to the computer, I dug out my new Active Extension, USB2.0 Repeater Cable, but then wondered, if it has an amplifier built-in, is it bi-directional? I read the...

getting Start Search button to show files again by Laurence Smith
I must have messed something up in settings. Have had the same Vista PC for 8 years and when searching for a file on the PC have routinely hit the Windows circular button on the lower left of the screen. Where it says in light gray Start Search I would put a word or two from the file name and quickly the name of candidate programs and files would show up above it. For the past week or so this...

looking for a program like sndrec.exe by Micky
I'm running Vista but it's a lot like 7. I'm looking for a program something like sndrec.exe, just to record and playback from my microphone. If it did more things that might be nice, but not worth paying extra for. Does something come with Vista? Or another recommendation. Thanks.

Network security, passwords and keys by Micky
All this time I've been thinking that if WEP or WPA-PSK enabled and a proper key, I have adequate router security. But in a moment of possible enlightenment, it occurred to me that if an interloper can log into my router, he can change the key so that iiuc I won't be able to use the net. That's bad, right? And if I haven't set a router password, he can set one, and then I would have run...

timestamps between computer and router -- email failed by Micky
A discussion with someone prompted me to look in my router log today, (perhaps for the first time in 8 years ) and I tried to email the log to myself. This gave rise to 3 questions. A) The time that the log showed for sending the email was 4 minutes later than the time on the computer clock (which I verified with a satellite clock). That is, that time had not arrived yet. An hour later...

Onboard network controller does not show up in Device Manager by Ken Springer[_2_]
Dell Vostro 1510, Vista Business 32 bit, fully updated. The computer did not have a hard drive installed, so if there was a recovery partition originally, it's not available to me. Is there any way to test the controller when the computer evidently doesn't know it's there? In searching the web, one solution for this problem on a different computer was to turn the controller on in the BIOS...

Ludicrous (?) Number of Page Faults ? by (PeteCresswell)
I am looking at somebody's Vista PC with only 2 gigs of RAM installed. SP-2, AMD Athlon LE-1620 @2.4 ghz. They are having intermittent issues with the thing seeming to freeze up. When I put Process Lasso on it I see what seem like a *lot* of PageFaults. viz: https://picasaweb.google.com/108149798664924808733/Misc02#6221493998639175570

Agent won't open after Restart, Part 2, probably applies to V,7,8, and 10. by Micky
Forte Agent 1.93 won't open after Restart, Part 2 The short answer is that the problem was Data Execution Prevention (DEP). Even though Agent19.exe was in the agent19 directory, which is in the Programs directory, and agent6.exe is in the agent6 directory which is in the Programs directory. And even though it worked fine for 3 weeks.

how to change Target or command line for each file name extension by micky
This is a Vista question, but since those groups are very quiet, I was hoping 7 people would know the answer and would help me.. IIRC, XP, 98, and 3.1 had a utility screen, a tab on Folder Options, that let me define details about what happened when I click on a file with a particular filename extension. All Vista has on the Control Panel is Default Programs, and it lets me change the...

Complete PC Backup and Restore by Ken Springer[_2_]
XP Pro included a system backup in the Pro version(s) but not Home. However, since the backup program was stand alone, you could copy the backup program to a Home system and be good to go. Can this be done in Vista? I rummaging the web, but haven't found anything yet. --

Vista goes black when starting to hibernate by micky
Hi, I just got a Vista computer. when a friend upgraded his office, and before I leave my desk, I tell it to hibernate (not hybrid). The monitor goes black and I can't tell if it has closed the programs yet, or how far along it is. i think I need this, for one thing, to know when I can turn off my harddrive dock. Is this normal or is there a remedy. Also there is no graphic menu of...

Vista update are slow by [email protected]
I have one PC still Vista. The Windows update is terribly slow. My Windows 7 and linux boxes all update much more quickly. I am wondering if Microsoft is deliberately giving low priority to Vista updates just to annoy those hanging on to it??

Network Map Issue by pjp[_5_]
Vista Home Basic laptop mixed with Win7 and XP desktops on a home network. All shares etc. work correctly. The problem is "Display Network Map" basically hangs while stating "Creating Network Map". PC becomes almost unusable and requires Task Manager to kill the process before pc returns to "kind of normal". It appears to be a "scvhost" process so unsure exactly what it's "running". I say...
