Where Do I Find The Address Book?

I never used outlook address book on my old computer. Instead i synchronized my very old sony clea program. However it broke sometime ago but i continued to update and add addresses into my computer using that program. Unfortunately, the program did not transfer into my new windows 7 program and i need to create a whole new address book to work with. Where do i find the address book on windows 7. I no longer have outlook or outlook express. I am not computer savvy and really need help with this.

Address Book Problem

The contents in groups in my hotmail address book keeps diminishing. Yesterday i placed over 100 email addresses in a group labeled 'crew' these took  a long time to do. Today i have 16 in the crew folder.

The addresses overall totals change daily getting less and less and finally the getting rid of duplicates is almost impossible. I have over 5000 in there which i cannot remove unless its done individually. Finally, when it does get around to working it will locate the name to merge and not the email address so in effect 2 john smiths get singled out with two separate email addresses only to be merged and one address lost.

Disappearing Address Book

Went into windows live mail to send an email and all my addresses had disappeared. Gone.zip. Found them in a folder on the computer. Reinstalled them in windows live again only to have them move 4 more times. The contacts stay in windows mail for a few days then zip. Gone and i have to reinstall them again. And this morning i got a pop up that said sticky notes weren't working, ms didn't know why, and they would get back to me when they found a solution. I'm already old. I don't know how much more time i have. These little glitches are enough to turn me into a mac person.

Outlook 2003 Address Book Problem

I have installed office 2003, including outlook 2003, onto my new computer and then transferred my outlook 2003 settings from my old computer (windows xp sp3 - 32 bit) to my new computer (windows 7 - 64 bit) using the windows easy transfer program. All the e mails and settings transferred successfully except my address book contacts. The contact details are all present and correct in the contacts folder in outlook 2003 on my new computer, but do not show up in my address book.

When i right click on the contacts folder and select properties, i see that the "show this folder as an e-mail address book" is greyed out. I have seen els where in this forum that this probably means that my mail profile is corrupted and that i have to generate a new profile. Please advise how i can do this in an easily understandable step by step procedure.

Address Book In Outlook 2007 Not Functioning

I just converted my computer from xp to windows 7 and pretty much all went well. The following did not go well: address book - i exported from outlook express 2003 and imported to microsoft office outlook 2007.

- All contacts were imported to outlook 2007 correctly - i can see them, however, outlook 2007 does not automatically recognize an email account that exists in the contacts. Ex. If i have a contact "email removed for privacy" while in the to field of a new mail item i want to send.

- I type "123" outlook 2007 does not recognize the contact. I have to search within my address book for the individual. Outlook express 2003 did recognize the "123" and automatically populated the to field. Is there something that i have to configure differently in the address book of outlook 2007?

Set Email Address In Live

How do i set an email address in windows live? Every time i go to windows live forum and do a post it channels me into select windows -> win 7 etc etc.

I don't really understand how i get to ask a question about windows live. I set up windows live with an id that was like an email address . @Me.com, but wasn't really one, just an id i fancied, cos the software didn't ask for an email address. Now every where i go to do with windows live (eg this forum) it says ill get informed of things. How will it inform me if it doesn't have my email address, doesn't it know i didn't give it an email address?

I ve looked all around my profile and what ever other items i can go to under windows live when im logged in and i cant find anywhere it allows me to provide an email addr'. I am really confused about all these windows live items. I cant find a no advertising style page that just explains very simply what it actually is!

Msn Email Address Or Password Incorrect

Just purchased a new computer that has windows 7 home premium 64 bit installed on it. I use msn as my home page. Every time i start up or reboot the system and try to get to my home page it asks me to put in my email address and password (despite the fact that i previously, and each subsequent time, checked the box to remember my email address and password). Then, to add insult to injury, it keeps on coming back with the error that email address or password is incorrect. I try a few more times with same results and then all of a sudden it works one time. Where do i go to fix this total annoyance?

How To Setup Email?

How do you set up email using windows 7? I just bought a laptop with windows 7. I was using outlook express on a computer with xp previously without any problems. With the new laptop, i was using the comcast website for email. I frequently send data files as attachments for my work. When i sent it through the comcast email it when through okay on my end but the formatting was messed up on the other end. These are small files, approximately 84 kb. I have also found out that i do not have a default email sent up. Before i screw something up, i thought i would see what suggestions you have for which email service to use and how to set up the email default.

Western Digital My Book Missing Driver

I have two wd mybook storage devices. Both worked on my previous pc running xp 32 bit. I have now rewed my pc running windows 7 64 bit. One device works the other doesn't and when i troubleshoot the one that doesn't the troubleshooter indicates a missing driver. Curiously the older of the two drives works ok.

I've been in contact with western digital who state they do not provide separate drivers as they utilise what microsoft provide, of course reading the answers blog microsoft state that its not their issue either, which leaves me, and apparently others, with unaccessible data & $100 out of pocket and no one is responsible. Can someone please advise where i can download the microsoft driver from that thewestern digital device relies on?

Western Digital My Book Usb Connection Problem

I have been informed by wester digital that it is not compatible with windows 7 and was informed to ask if there is a download or patchesfor this to work, i have loads of things stored on my book and im worried that i have lost it all.

This is the email i received from western digital

As this is one of our older models, it is not necessarily compatible with windows 7. The new operating system has not included drivers for some plug and play devices that were included with earlier versions, therefore this is most likely the reason why it is not recognised. You could contact windows to ask if they have a download or a patch for this but the drive should still be accessible on computers running xp or vista.

Page 1 in the manual shows it is compatible with xp and vista but not 7.

Ip Address Not Resolving

There is one website i try to type into my browser address bar that will not come up and i get an error message saying it is taking too long for the page to load. I tried pinging the website using the web address and saw that my computer was looking for the wrong ip address. I am on a network and the other computers have no problem going to this address and ping to the correct ip address. I was not having this problem until this week, just after an update for windows 7 was downloaded. I don't know if this is a coincidence.

I have tried everything: flushing dns, changing my internet protocol to use a server number given to me by my internet service provider to use a specific dns address, clearing my cache, history and anything else i could think of. My isp does not see any problem on there end and can't help me any more. I do not seem to have this problem with any other website and unfortunately, for me, i need to update this website. If you have any suggestions i'd really like to hear them. I do not have a lot of computer expertise but will try to follow your suggestions.

Ip Address Changes On Router Reboot

Running windows 7 cabled to wireless router. Occasionally broadband "drops out" and when rebooting router ip address for wireless printer (epson stylus office tx610fw) changes form 10. 1. 1. 2   to 10. 1. 1. Something depending on how many laptops are connected. As a result i have to go into control panel, hardware & sound select the printer then via 'settings' select the printer and add it manually with new ip address. Obviously irritating as other family members, despite printed instructions, cannot manage it. Please, is there anyway to 'lock' the ip address so it doesn't change?

Address Bar Searches Ask.com Instead Of Going To Site

Sometimes when i type in an address to my address in ie 7 or ie 8 i end up at ask.com. This is especially weird since i have disabled all search engines i am not interested from the manage add-ons window and it bothers me more than ask.com wasn't there to remove and yet it's there in my address bar. In ie 8 the new link system show ask.com at the bottom of the list just begging to clicked on. I keep my virus checker and microsoft's windows defender up to date and neither has picked up any thing to suggest this is a virus or trojan.

Delete History In Address Bar

I have a sony vaio. It has vista home. I have an item (site)  with accompanying info (images). That seems to be embedded in the history at the address bar. When i try to delete them it is still there. I have tried through control panel, safety and also the tools button. All these methods work to delete all the other history but this one site and its accompanying images. I'm not real knowledgeable with computer but i'm trying. I think i have read in forum of similar (i think?) Problem. Can someone walk me through solving this?

Turn Off Search In Address Bar

I recently downloaded the latest windows update, which in turn updates internet explorer to 8. What i absolutely loved about ie is that i could just type something in the address field (without adding ".com") and it would automatically pull up the website. Saved me a lot of time and loved the functionality of it. Now that it's been updated, i can't do that anymore. Ie8 automatically pulls up google search instead of just loading the page. Is there any way to turn this feature off? It slows my work down. And little minutes each time tends to add up.

"Another computer on this network has the same ip address as this computer.contact your network administrator for help resolving this issue. More details are available in the windows system event log. "

I cannot find the windows system event log. I have another computer attached to the same router, but i have not created a home group or file sharing, and the other computer is not even turned on. How do i fix this? What are the implications?

Ip Address Conflict On Home Network

I am a new at this and have never asked a question before but i am utterly lost. I am having a problem getting my 3 computers to connect to my wireless network. I am running windows 7. I can connect the laptop but when i try to connect the netbook or the desktop. I get an error of "ip address conflict". Below is a list of what i have tired.

Disconnected the wireless router and the modem.
Reset the wireless router to try to force a new ip address.
I have read and read.

I just read about the dhcp client and that is enabled but if i do a cmd ipconfig /all it says that dhcp client is not enabled but the auto configuration is enabled. The physical address is showing a string of zeros. Done an ipconfig to release and renew on both the laptop and the netbook.

When i do just an ipconfig:

Connection-specific dns suffix domain_not_set. Invalid
Ipv6 address: 2002:45b6:6a50:45b6:6a50
Default gateway: 2002:c058:6301:c058:6301

I have read all over this forum and i keep trying everything and nothing is working. I am not sure if i gave enough information. Any advice?

Enable Ie8 Auto Address Feature

With windows xp when visiting the web with internet explorer as i typed the internet address, if i had visited before, it was displayed and all i had to do was hit the enter key to visit. I need to know how to set that up with the new internet explorer. I have gone in and set, and reset those options, but i can't get it to work, so i am doing something wrong.

I still have a lower version ie at work and also windows xp and it works there. But get home and i always have to use the mouse to click on the address if it shows in the list. Please help me enable this feature, if it still exists. If it doesn't then i am not a happy camper.

Url Links Change To Ip Address Automatically

I don't know if this has to specifically deal with ie8 but ever since i've installed it i have had this problem: i use the yahoo im program and it seems every time i copy a url from the ie address bar and paste it into the im window, it looks like it should on my end but on the other person's end, it shows up as an ip address.

Example:
I type/copy&paste: http://www.microsoft.com/en/us/default.aspx  
Changes to on my im buddy's screen: http://98. 21. 74. 97/en/us/default.aspx

It has happened to 3 other people i've sent url links too so it can't be them. Anyone have any ideas as to why it is doing this? If it helps, i am using windows xp complete with all the updates, ie8 and have a netgear wpn824 v3 router. My friend told me to mention his default browser is firefox.
