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.

External Hard Drive Troubles

I have a windows 7 starter netbook that refuses to let me use my newly formatted external hard drive. It was formatted in fat32 and i had some large hd videos that i wanted to store on it so i formatted it to ntfs. Now the only place i can find the hard drive is under "devices and printers". It is not under "computer" with the rest of my drives. This hard drive works fine on all the other computers in the house including two other windows 7 starter netbooks, a desktop running vista, and two other desktops running xp. Do you guys have any idea what is wrong? 
 
Edit: it is also recognized under os x 10. 6. 2

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?

I recently updated to ie8 and added bing/msn toolbar, first of all i have two ie8 regular ie8 and 1e8 (64 bit) first down load i used regular, ie8. It installed every ok, then i open ie8(64) no toolbar. So down loaded from this ie8(64) bit browser, it tells me it is already installed, so i restart pc but no toolbar. Then i down load toolbar again, this time it does  allows me re down load again, though upon restarting pc, no toolbar in ie8 (64) bit aggain in regular ie i have bing toolbar. I also upgraded vista to include sp 2 earlier today and upgraded ie from ie7 to ie8.

Should i uninstall and try again? And must i down load for each ie or should install for both ie? I used this page to download toolbar http://www.microsoft.com/toolbar/install-free-toolbar.aspx also, whats the difference between both ie's or should i delete one of them?

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. 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?

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?

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.

9. There is no windows search helper/bing toolbar or any kind of obvious add-ons or extensions installed for firefox my problem now:when i type a keyword in firefox address-bar (set for google search), it opens a bing search window!

The only way i managed to get rid of the bing search was to completely disable windows search from the windows features!It's a bit arsh and pretty annoying as i obviously can't do any search on my computer! Does anybody have an idea how to fix this?(Please go again through the list above and don't propose me to remove bing add-on or disable kb 982217.

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.

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " Error when double clicking folder or c drive. Can open c drive or folder by double clicking. I have had an issue for quite some time with open my c drive or any folders. Every time i click to open either one, i get: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default program control panel"

However, if i right click on the mouse and choose open, i can access the drive/folder with no problem. How do i correct this back to ordinary clicking on the drive/folder?

All Program Settings

I have a question about how to organize my "all programs" settings. When i click start then all programs, all my folders are at the bottom and misc. Files are on the top. I would like to put the folders in alphabetical order and have the misc. Files last. It was easy to do on all the other window's programs but i can't seem to find a way with windows 7.

Program Fonts

I am having problems with my installed program fonts. They all come across very very tiny to read. What is strange is when i use my e-mail program and type a letter fonts are the perfect size. But not the program settings. On internet fonts are perfect. Its just the programs them selves are so tiny to read. I really hope this is just a simple adjustment i can understand.
 
This is a brand new acer computer with windows 7 premium and the latest microsoft browser. I also like to thank everyone who volunteers their time and expert advice for people like me.

Program Crash

I have recently purchased a new dell vostro 1220 laptop with windows 7 home prem installed. I also have a web design package known as incomedia website x5 evolution installed, the problem is it doesn't seem to want to operate under windows 7. The program crashes frequently and the only information i have as to why is listed below. I have tried the following:

-Uninstalling and re-installing (as administrator)
-Setting compatibility mode as windows vista
-Uninstalling again (and deleting the actual program directory from the programs folder)
-Re-installing the software again and installing the latest update for it

It still will not work, i have also submitted this question to the manufacturers of the software, incomedia, but thought i would also ask here too just in case someone has a quick and easy answer to sort this out.

Program Development

Part 1: why on earth do you keep moving things around every time you upgrade your products?
I have just installed windows 7 and once again i am reduced to a novice user because nothing is where it used to be. ("My files" is now a "library", my "user account" blocks my access to ordinary user files, i have to "hack myself" into the administrator account to be able to use ordinary programmes, all the "shared" and "private" setup is once again different. It just goes on and on and on and on. )

How do you expect me to become an advanced user of all the new options you are keen to include if i have to spend my time relearning all the basics for every update? By all means keep improving the program and the way it works behind the scenes and add fancy layout, but why change the basics just to fit some kind of new interface logic! To learn how to work inside someone else's way of thinking takes years, i really. Don't. Want. To. Start. All. Over.

Part 2: if you want something useful to stick your hands on, develop a spare part of memory to have a manual override for any process that is accidentally started by misclicks. For instance, if i clicked internet explorer and it does not respond because my network router is off, i want to be able to override the program by clicking to shut it. I do not want to have to wait for the explorer to analyze why it does not get a network connection. I am happy to let it analyze if i don't know what's wrong. But most of the times i know what's wrong. I misclicked. I just want it to stop - shut - immediately and let me click the right button without a 30 second analysis delay while every ounce of windows is occupied on this task.

Program Permissions

I have recently purchased a new mini pc, and i have windows 7. I plugged in my external hard drive but am not able to access anything on it because i don't have permission. I have gone in and changed the security and have given rights and permissions; still no luck. Everytime i try to open something it tells me that i do not have permission to view it and then gives me the link to be able to change that, and so i do, but it still wont let me access anything. It's all there, i can see the icons and such, but i cannot view it when i click to open it; no permission.
