How To Use Bing Dynamic Rss Theme?


Windows 7 theme problem - bing dynamic (rss theme)i have used many of the new windows 7 themes without problems, but i can't get the rss theme called bing dynamic to work. When i download it and open it, all that's in the theme is the empty theme (no images), so it leaves my desktop black. I thought it might start working after waiting a minute for it to download an image, but it's been over 30 minutes and still no image. It doesn't have the rss symbol on the theme in my list like it does on my friend's computer (where it does work), but for the picture album, it has the right location: a web address for a theme server. How do i get it to work?

Code Formatting Ignored By Rss Feed In Live Mail

Normally i would have used outlook explorer for news and rss feeds but it seems that you have to use windows live mail under win7. So i went about the business and added eric lippert's msdn rss blog feed and discovered windows live doesn't show the indentation of the code.

This sort of problem is pretty much a deal breaker for a developer to use windows live for staying up to date with rss/newsfeeds. Any ideas if this can be resolved?

Multiboot With Dynamic Disk

I have a laptop (only space for one disk) with a new disk installed. Due to the number of partitions it has been converted to dynamic disk under windows 7. Will this support the installation of a second edition of windows 7 in its own partition or does the fact that it is a dynamic disk preclude such an option? If it will work am i right in thinking that dynamic disks will not support a linux partition due to the incompatibility with gpt

Using Mirror Volume Of A Basic Disk Without Converting It To Dynamic

How to use mirror volume of a basic disk without converting it to dynamic disk? I have two 500gb hard drive attached to my pc running windows 7. I want the software drive (d:) [in the primary hard disk] should be backed up automatically on the other hard drive. I learned a lot from the internet about mirror volume in dynamic disks. In that case i need to convert both hard disks to dynamic disk.

My question is, is there any other way to make a mirror disk of the drive to the secondary hard disk without converting the primary hard drive to dynamic disk? [I have no problem to convert the second hard disk to dynamic disk, but i don't want the first hard drive to be converted to dynamic. ] If it is not possible via windows, is there any 3rd party software to do seamless backup of a drive to different disk without any dynamic disk conversion ?

Dynamic Pen Feedback In Win 7 - Tablet Pc Input Service

There is a wonderful video on the web explaining how to disable this annoying feature, but it only works in higher versions of windows 7 due to lack of expedite. Msc. Here is the video. http://vimeo.com/8567716

Using only the "services" part of this fix does not help.completely disabling it made the feedback disappear only until i put my computer to sleep. After the feedback returned, i re-enabled, then disabled "tablet pc input service". Now i can't even get it to work for a second. Also, geek squad didn't know. The sooner the reply the better i use my tablet for my job and trying to draw with that splash is impossible

Ordinal 120 Could Not Be Located In The Dynamic Link Library Iertutil.dll

"the ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll", ie and many other programs won't start! Os: win7 home prem. X64 running as administrator, only user on machine. I installed a game recently and tried to run it and received this error, which causes it to crash each time. Doing the research, i found that this .dll pertains to ie8. Why a third-party game would utilize an ie8 .dll is beyond me.

I did a search for this and the answers all pointed to "uninstall and reinstall". Since i have win 7, there is no way to remove it completely or re-download the software again, so i went through add or remove programs > "turn windows features on or off" to uncheck/uninstall it, reboot, then check/reinstall it. I still get the error.

Other programs - ones i didn't think had anything to do with "iertutil.dll" - are now being affected by this as well, producing the exact same error. I ran revo uninstaller to uninstall the game and clean out any remaining files or registry items for it, but still get the error with some other applications, and ie still won't start.

One suggestion pointed to downloading the .dll from a third party website, but i could not find the correct version (8. 0. 7600. 16385), so i did not do this. Another post about a similar issue had a response instructing to do an sfc scan. I did.correction: sfc found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I have the log if needed.

Whatever happened to this .dll also has affected my ie8. When i click to open it, nothing happens. It doesn't open in the background and hang - task manager shows no "iexplorer.exe" anywhere. It just does nothing.system restore is not an option. I would really appreciate it if somebody could actually provide me with a good answer. I have not had a single good experience with these msa forums at all for any of my problems.

Ie And Bing - Can't Download

I am unable to download most files when i try to access by ie (vista home premium, ie7). Downloading works fine in aol, google chrome and opera. The latest 2 are ad-aware update via cnet and my audible books from audible.com, although it has happened every time i try to download since bing infested my computer. It doesn't matter whether i press a "download" button or am auto directed, it goes to bing and thinks it's a search (see below messages). I contacted the bing help and they said this is an ie problem.

Blocked By Bing From Going To Amazon.com

I am using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit os factory installed on my hp high performance pavilion elite. This is a 64-bit system. I am experiencing frequent instances of bing coming up and blocking my attempts to go to web pages i select. One instance is trying to go to amazon.com: bing page comes up and blocks the attempt. Javascript is mentioned but not explained. I go to the sun web page to download java and am blocked trying to download 64-bit java. I am possibly an intermediate user and certainly not an expert and i am confused and frustrated.

Another problem with bing coming up to block is my attempt to download pictures as screen-savers from webshots. Each time i try to download a picture i am shunted off to bing! I don't understand. How can i get rid of bing, so i can use the internet as before?

Bing Cashback Program Troubles

I purchased a laptop on overstock.com on july 17th using the bing cashback program and paypal. Bing claimed i was eligible for 30% off my purchase. I have received no cashback. I have tried contacting bing support and am always directed to a dead page. I am hoping someone can provide me with some help as to someone whom i can ask several questions about. My decision to purchase the laptop was based on the sale price and i honestly cannot afford the laptop at full price. I sincerely look forward to someone offering some advice.

Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Saving A Theme

At time i want to change properties of an existing thme and overwrite the original. Well, when i click "save theme" and type in the same name as an existing theme i end up with 2 themes with the same name. I would assume windows would ask me if i wanted to replace the other theme. I am then forced to delete the original hoping i'm deleting the proper one. Is this normal? What are some guidelines as to saving themes? I change elements of themes frequently. I don't want to save different themes and end up have hundreds of themes on my system.

Bing Toolbar Download Has Stopped Search

Bing toolbar download has stopped search from opening a new page when queried (as i want). I've tried every setting i can find regarding how to open a new window with a new link or a new search and they all seem to be set correctly - but this won't work with any of the search engines on my tool-bars (and it did before the download). They always open in the same window which is a major pain in the rear end.

I tried to system restore before i installed the new toolbar but then i had problems with the toolbar that used to be there (essentially an older version of the same toolbar) that said i needed to reinstall it. Can anyone please help me get a separate window to open when i execute an ie search?  I'm comfortable with windows and if i need to make changes to the registry that's perfectly fine.

Aero Win 7 Theme

Somehow my aero theme in windows has been corrupted. I am unable to use the thumb view peek  and my screen saver does not work. I have tried to re-enable through device manager and trouble shoot via windows fix it option with no luck. I believe either this some or all of the aero program was deleted during the set up process or it was corrupted somewhere along the way. I would like to know if someone can show me how to delete the program and re-install via a download. I am trying to avoid having to reinstall windows.

Win 7 Changes Theme During Reboot

I run windows 7 home premium 64x on a dell inspiron 1545, purchased within the last six months. Over the past week, each time i turn on the computer and log in, the theme is changed. My background stays the same (it is one of the default windows ones), while the window color changes, and instead of aero, i have the basic windows running. Another thing is that it says that the laptop is connected to a modem for internet, instead of the wireless, where it should be connecting.

My widgets take some time to appear on the desktop as well. Also, whenever i awake the computer from sleep, or just open firefox after initial start, it takes five minutes to open instead of what used to be seconds. For this to completely change back to my original performance, it takes about
An hour, which i find ridiculous for a start up of a computer that is less than six months old. Are there any known was to fix this, or is it just a bug? Or is it a hardware problem and should i contact dell?

Aero Theme Is Disabled

Aero working then randomly disabled. Hello :)i have recently purchased windows 7 home premium. For the first week everything was great, and aero glass was working like a charm. Just today it's all of a sudden reverted back to the old school windows classic settings (the grey task bar, and bulky black writing). I've troubleshooted aero and it's told me a) current theme doesn't support aero, and b) desktop windows manager is disabled. I have checked the wei rating, and it's 4. 2, i've gone into the option where you enable desktop windows manager and stopped/started/restarted. Funnily enough i still have the option of choosing an aero screen, however whenever i do it - it'll change the screen and not the taskbar, screen windows, etc. The only changes that have been made to the screen is my mother changing the size of the text. I've searched the forums and can't seem to get a grasp of how to fix this.

Premium Theme Stops Cycling

My colleague has this issue and i've just noticed it happen on my system. I'm running a retail copy of windows 7 premium x64, whereas my colleague is running retail windows 7 premium x86. We have created custom themes and have them randomly cycling. After an unspecific time (sometimes hours, sometime days) we notice that the backgrounds aren't changing. When this happens we find that the personalize option shows the current background listed as a separate unsaved theme.

Choosing the custom theme fixes the issue temporarily but the problem reoccurs. Deleting the unsaved theme does not resolve the problem. Custom images are stored locally in the pictures folder of the user profile. Users are non-admin accounts. The systems are often left for a number of hours, and occasionally left overnight. During this time they are set to default power saving which includes turning off the monitors and going into power saving. I do not know if this is causing this issue.

One Customizable Color For Aero Theme

Couldn't find any posts that definitively answered if you really can only adjust the window border color with aero themes. I have the home edition and really like the general look of the aero style windows, but i'm not too crazy about any of the colors that i can't seem to change (everything except the window border. ) Is it just that i need to spend more money to upgrade, or did some focus group decide that all shades of baby blue is what everyone wants?

Aero Theme With Flickering Window

I am using windows 7 ultimate on my acer aspire one netbook and while i am working within a program, i will go to switch windows or open a new program, and the current window will start to flicker. It will flash, disappear from the taskbar, reappear, and continue to do so for quite some time, or until i press ctrl+alt+del. I cannot close the programs, minimize them, or do anything to them until the flickering stops. The windows will show that it is not responding, and then will disappear before presenting me with the options to terminate or restart the program at hand. I have ran countless troubleshooters, looked at several web forums, and updated, downgraded, and re-installed all drivers possible, but the issue still remains.

I run the windows aero on my desktop, but there are times when i switch themes to 7 basic that it still continues. The only temporary solution i have come up with, is again, bringing up the security options by pressing ctrl+alt+del. Is there anyone out there who has found a solution to this issue that may help me out some, please? I love windows 7, but this flashing screen problem is starting to get a little out of hand, and i cannot find any fixes for it anywhere i look. Lso, is it possible it is an issue with the dwm instead of aero? Cuz that would give me a better idea of what to look for online.

Aero Theme Changed To Windows Basic

I've just upgraded to windows 7 and am a little confused as to what is happening with my display settings. Last night i installed an old game on my laptop (caesar 3, sierra). I was dubious about whether or not this would install and to my surprise actually displayed correctly too.

However upon opening caesar 3 today, i get the message about the program not being able to run in aero theme and that the display has had to default to windows basic.

I'm totally confused as this didn't happen yesterday, and after running the 'aero' and 'display' troubleshooters, am no closer to isolating why this is happening.

To describe this a little better - the game now opens in a window (not maximized to full screen) and has that horrible green-purple rendering that i can only assume is occurring from altered display settings.

Aero Theme Stopped Working After Crash

I have window 7 64 bit on my high end computer. The computer has been great for a few months- i really like the aero features. Tonight i installed the game batman arkam asylum. While i was benchmarking the game froze up. The windows button, control alt delete, alt tab did nothing. So i turned the pc off. When i started it up- i noticed the aero effect was gone- so i did a quick system restore.system restore then crashed and said it could not restore. I tried this twice plus i tried another restore point. I spent all night researching the problem on this site and the internet. I came up with nothing.

The computer still has a registry entry for dwm but the app does not load on start up. It has disappeared from the windows services gui. I tried to select other themes- this did not work. I tried the aero trouble shooting app and i came up with nothing. I re ran the performance test to try to force aero back on.
