2nd Email Account


I've sent up my first comcast email account without any issues. I've then created another identity on the computer and tried to set up my second comcast email account but have run into this problem. It tells me i'm successful but when it tries to send or receive email i get a "logon to mail.comcast.net box asking for my user name and password. I type in what i think my user name for my second account is but it still won't "authorize" to get or send emails.

Outlook Xp Problem With Log Into Email Account

When i added my email account to outlook xp under windows 7 i told it to save my password. When i clicked 'test settings' all of the tests completed.

Every time i run outlook xp it requests my password now! It does not ask for a profile. It says: pop. Telus.net, and the 'password' field is empty. When i type in my password it says the server rejected mylog in! If i go to my email account settings the password is in the appropriate field. If i click on 'test settings' all tests pass!

I went into notepad. I typed my password. I selected and copied my password. I went to my email account with internet explorer. I pasted my password into the appropriate field. I clicked 'log in. ' i was successful in logging in. I logged out.

I invoked outlook. It requested my password for: pop. Telus.net. I pasted my password into the appropriate field. I clicked: log in. Outlook told me that my email server had rejected my log in! I logged into my email account. I did not logout. I once again invoked outlook. This time i was not asked for my password. I clicked: send/receive all of my emails were received!

I called my email provider. I asked if he had any idea why outlook was not working. He said he had no idea. This never happened under windows xp. Does anyone know why outlook xp is unable to log into my email account under windows 7? Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access.

How Do Delete Email Account From Win Live Mail In Win 7 ?

I have windows 7 on my laptop and found out it could help me organize my hotmail account - but when i opened windows live mail, it suddenly had our family email account on it and began downloading email. I only want our family email account to appear and work on our desktop (which has xp and outlook express). If i delete that pop account from windows live mail, will it only apply to the settings on my laptop and therefore remain intact on our desktop?

Activating On A 2nd Computer

I upgraded from vista to 7 on a laptop. Several features were lost so i want to go back to vista. With that i'm ok with. I have a desktop i need to reinstall windows onto (hd died and i am replacing it so no os on it right now). I originally bought vista for it and was using vista on it before it crashed. Windows 7 is compatible with all the hardware and software for the desktop.

If i reinstall vista on the laptop (and no longer using my purchased copy of windows 7), can i install the windows 7 on the desktop now? I guess what i am asking is, since i installed my copy of win 7 and used the key on the laptop, will ms know that i am no longer using the os on the laptop so i can use the same key on the desktop? Do i have to somehow unregister win 7 from the laptop before reinstalling vista, so i can install it on the desktop?

Win 7 Installing For 2nd Pc

I need some help how to activate my windows 7 home edition. I built a new computer all the hardwares are brand new in it. When i wanted to activate the windows it just doesn't accept the product key. I heard that if i install the windows for a new pc the activation can be issue because the product key is already hangs on (or belongs to) the first pc where i installed the windows first. But i didn't believe that can be true. So each time when i upgrade my pc or something breaks in it should i buy a new product key or the disc again ? Any idea what could i do ?

Missing A Partition On 2nd Drive

I purchased a new w7 pc. I added the hd from my old pc as a second drive. This hd had been partitioned to a c, e and f drive. However, i can only see the old c & e partitions (now with drive letters e & f). I can't see the old f drive which contained all my burned cd's. The entire hd is 160gb and windows explorer shows the e&f drives equaling about 150gb, which would be correct with the typical loss of some gb's. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what i can do to see the old f drive? Thank you.

Cannot Detect 2nd Hdmi Tv Display

I had a vga display as my primary display and a hdtv display via a hdmi cable as a second display hooked up to my computer. This worked fine until a month ago. When at first the picture showed only a zoomed in top left hand corner of the screen on my hdtv with all psychedelic colours the first thing i tried was a roll back of the updates but this had no effect, as dis changing the cable. Then when i changed the graphics card windows 7 stopped being able to 'detect' my second display with either card.

Any ideas or solutions would be most helpful?

Installing Win 7 Rc On 2nd Hard Drive

I've been trying to install windows 7 rc  on my 2nd hard drive for the past few days and i always get the same result; windows xp boots normally instead. Here's what i do; i downloaded the windows 7 rc from your website and wrote down the product key, i burned the iso to a blank dvd with cd burner xp (tried with nero 7 as well), used the slowest possible speed to burn, i reboot and make sure the first boot is the dvd drive using 2 options; f2 in the bios and f11 boot order, when it says to hit any key to boot from the dvd i do but windows xp still boots. What am i doing wrong?

Win 7 Fails To Detect 2nd Monitor On Boot

Clean install of win7 with ati radeon hd4550 pci express graphics card. Running a mitsubishi diamond plus 100e monitor and a sony multiscan 500ps monitor, both off the 4550 card. On boot, the primary (mitsubishi) monitor is detected and the second (sony) monitor is not. I can open the control panel for screen resolution and see both monitors correctly identified. If i select extend these displays, windows re-labels the sony monitor as generic pnp and the sony monitor then activates and works properly.

As soon as i shut down the computer and reboot, the sony monitor is again undetected and i have to go through the whole process again. I have deleted all ati drivers and reinstalled current catalyst drivers (8. 732, 5/26/2010), as well as current motherboard drivers. (Motherboard is gigabyte ma790gp-ds4h). Integrated graphics card on motherboard is currently disabled, although this made no difference to the problem.

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was running vista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen and the monitor itself says there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing is my pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!

Moving Data From 1st Disk To 2nd Disk

I installed my w7 on a single disk pc then i added a second disk for data. I want to have all my data (documents, photos, music, etc. ) In this second disk. In xp, when i did so, i copy my documents from "documents and settings" folder to the new location (d:/) and i was done. Now in w7 i open the "user" folder i found that files are not on a single folder but that there are several document folders (images, documents, etc. ) And settings folders (favorites, etc. ). May i copy all the user folder to the new location or i must leave there some of them in c:/system/users? In xp, when i move my documents to d:, every thing was redirected there (default1 saving folder, default download folder, defautl music folder, etc. ) In w7, would happen the same? The link on the desktop will redirect me to the location or may continue pointing the old one.

User Account Name

I just installed win 7 home premium from using the win 7 ultimate rc. I backed up my files on the old system where the user name was "old". When i installed win 7 home premium i named it "new". Now when i restored my data, under the "users" folder the restore program created a folder "old" with all of my data there. How do i set my system up so that all of my data is under the "new" user account, or at least tell my system to look in the "old" user folder?

Administrative Account

So i've had the rc for a few days now, and as i was uninstalling a program so that i could get a clean install with it, windows 7 is refusing to let me delete the folder and files that have been left over from the uninstall, i'm receiving the error message "you need permission to perform this action. You require permission from administrators to make changes to this folder. Try again cancel" now i'm set up as the administrator and i can pretty well change anything and everything else. I just thought i would bring this to your attention.

User Account Control

I recently had a new hard drive installed on on my dell xps computer. Prior to having the new hard drive installed i had no problem with the vista home premium running in 64 bit mode. Since having the new hard drive installed i have had a number of issues, first whenever i try to download files from the internet it will not let me also i cannot view videos via ie8 "you tube, msnbc, etc). I have found that whenever i turnoff user account control (uac) everything works just fine.

Is there a way i can have uac turned on and still have everything work? Or do i really need uac turned on. My guess is that who ever reinstalled the system on my computer did something that makes them the primary account, although it shows that i am the only account and the administrator. I have tried correcting this issue via advanced tools in ie8 with no luck.

User Account Has Reset Itself

I recently restarted my computer, after uninstalling my "dell support center" because it's been annoying. When i logged back into my user account, it was like i was logging onto a brand new account. No files were in my documents etc. And no shortcuts were on my screen. However, all my files are still on my hard drive. Is there something i can do to fix this and get my old account back? I've checked and its still the same account name, just everything gone.

Turn Off A User Account

My mother has several children that live with her (her grandchildren/my nephew/niece) and has put a password lock on her new pc. It runs windows 7. Apparently my nephew found a way to bypass the password lock on the owner account (the admin account) and created an account called ownerpc/back up. Via remote assistance (she lives in ny, i live in fl) i was able to delete this account, but for the life of me i cannot find an option to turn off for this and i have also come up short trying to even find how he did it via web searches. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this from happening again? Or even how he was able to do this?

Lost Admin Account

I had changed my login to automatic. After that i managed to install still programs. But when i started windows again, it didn't let me to change settings which demand admin rights. I'm now a guest and there isn't any other accounts. When i try to make changes in uac, for example, it demands to log in as admin and "then press yes", but there is no fields to log in and "yes"-button is gray. Is there any chance to get admin back without reconfiguration with windows cds. I also tried to recover the system but it demands, of course, admin rights.

Resetting Password On Account

One day, i wanted to change the password on my account, the admin account by the way, and you need the password you are already using, so i tried it and it didn't work, so i shut down my computer, and turned it back on, and i couldn't log into the admin account, and the other account has parental controls on it, so i couldn't do just about anything on that one without the admin password. So anyway, i tried to change it and it told me i needed a floppy disk or a usb flash drive, and i don't have the disc to reset it so what do i do from there? How do i get the disc?  All i want to do is log on that account.

Unable To Remove Account

I recently had my computer repaired at best buy and it returned working well but a new "administrator" account was added even though i already gave them the password and such for my own administrator account. This account is seriously bothering me. I cannot get rid of it for the life of me. I repeatedly attempt to remove the account but when i go into add/remove account and manage the account, the only option missing is "delete the account". Why is this and how can i make it an option?

Missing Administrator Account

During setup of a new computer with windows 7, i created two user account, selecting both as administrators. Today while trying to move a program i got a message stating that i can't perform the action because i don't have administrator privileges. I went to control panel, user accounts and family safety, add or remove user accounts.

Under the names on the icons, the word administrator is displayed, but when i click on a user account and then on change the account type, both users have the radio button next to standard user lit. I try to move it to administrator, but the change account type button becomes grayed (probably because i am not viewed as an administrator. So why did the user accounts change mysteriously to standard user and how can i get them administrator rights when i don't see any other user on startup.

Turn Off User Account Control

How do i turn off user account control popups for certain programs without turning it off for them all? I saw how you can turn it off for all programs but i only want it turned off for those i constantly run like spore and other games. So please don't tell me to:

To stop the prompt run regedit. Navigate to the registry key
Hkey_local_machinesoftwaremicrosoftwindowscurrentversionpoliciessystem.
Change the value of consentpromptbehavioradmin to 0 (zero) from 2.
Change the value of consentpromptbehavioruser to 0 (zero) from 1.

I did this but i want it to be turned on for other programs especially my e-mail and internet programs.

User Account Control Issue

I am finding the user account control function to be a total pain in windows 7, because half my programs fall foul of it and half do not.

It seems that i have to either use two account profiles and switch in and out between them depending on which program i am going to use at that moment. Or switch off the user account control function completely.

Neither option seems to be a very satisfactory solution. Is there any way of telling it not to react to the same programs over and over again, but to react to programs that i have not flagged as 'safe' ?
