Accidentally Set Same Default Program

I was trying to open dell webcam central because it wasn't working. I right click and picked open with, then pick default opener. I did not notice that the box that says something along the lines of "make default for all programs" was checked. Now any time i try to open any program it opens the webcam. I have tried doing system restore, but received an error message concerning a file problem. It said to try turning off my antivirus, which i did and it still didn't work. I've tried to go back and select the default program for each program, but it doesn't change anything.

Unable To Set Headset As Default

Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.

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!

Send Page By Email Problem

I bought my machine with windows 7 pre installed a couple of wees ago. A few days ago i noticed that using ie8 the send page by email is greyed out and does not work. Similarly using acrobat 9. 2 when i try to do the same function i gen a similar error " unable to connect to mail server". Note, i had outlook 2003 on this machine as the first program i installed, i have since taken outlook off completely.

I have tried the following;
Uninstall live mail
Uninstall adobe reader
Install mozilla thunderbird , allow it to set it as the default email client
- Same probelm -

Uninstall thunderbird
Reinstall live mail
Reinstall adobe reader
- Same problem -

Used default program numerous times and set live mail as the default mail program.
- Same problem -

From some looking on the web someone suggested that outlook left behind registry entries, somebody else said they manually edited the "sendto" in the registry but neither left specific instructions.

Cannot Send Email With Live Mail

I have a dell 1735 laptop with a windows 7 premium os. Windows live mail is my email client. After i open wlm i receive email to my inbox without a problem, but when i click on new mail message the message window opens for about 3 seconds and then fades with a pop-up appearing that reads " a problem has caused windows live mail to stop working. "I went to the add/remove programs and clicked repair, that didn't help. I uninstalled and re-installed the application, that did not help.

Note: i uninstalled with regedit i know the settings are correct because i use the same settings in my windows xp outlook express, on my desktop. I also went to msconfig and switched to a diagnostic start-up, that didn't help. One thing i noticed is everytime i close wlm a dialog box asks me if i want to recover more disk space, i usually click yes. I have 138 gigs of free space on 320 gig drive. Lso, outlook 2002 is installed on the laptop, but it is not the default email client. Does anyone have any idea as to what can be the problem?

Using Task Scheduler To Send An Email

How to use task scheduler to send an email? I have windows live mail + windows 7 i want my computer to send an email to someone on it's own. I opened task scheduler and created a new task using task scheduler to 'send and email'. The problem is that the program only asks me who it's to, who the email is from and what smtp server to use. It doesn't ask for my mail server log-in and username so in theory it would fail. And when it comes to send the message, currently it doesn't do anything without any error message. I have 2 email accounts setup in windows live mail but how do i tell the task scheduler program which email account to use and how to login to the account to send it?

Unable To Send Email From Ms Word 2007

I have windows 7, the latest version of live mail and office 2007 student & home edition.
When i attempt to send a word or excel doc as an attachment (from the word or excel menu), i receive two error messages:

1. "You must log on to ms exchange access your address book". ( I use pop 3 not exchange)
I get the above message the first two times i try to send the doc and the occasionally  on the  third time attaching & sending is successful.
 
2. "There is no e-mail program associated to perform the requested action".

This error message is intermittent.
 
I have searched various sites for a solution but haven't had any luck. I have set live mail as the default e-mail program in ie8 and in default programs and have set live mail associations as well.

All Program Icons Are Set To Spreadsheet

My baby sister recently phoned me with a pretty serious problem and seeing as how in the family im the tech dude i found myself at a loss with her error.
 
The error is as follows: all of the programs on her pc try to open in spreadsheet, either in the start menu or the desktop. She told me that when she changes the default starting it changes all of them to the same and certain programs cannot be changed at all.
 
Is there a way to fix this without a major overhaul being done? As i have to do it via phone and she isn't that great with technology.

Computer Has Duplicate Set Of Program Files

New gateway computer/all in one/64bit/more space than i've ever had and operates okay. The computer files reflect "program files" and then "program files (86)". Many appear to be duplicates. If i merge these files, will it adversely affect the performance of the computer? Can some of the files in the "program files" that are the exact same files as are in "program files (86)" be deleted or would that automatically be done with a drag and drop manuever? I'm really confused. I did ask gateway, but they would not answer the question and just referred me to the manual. It does not address this issue. Can anyone out there help me with this intriguing but irritating mystery?

Anyone?

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?

Default Program / Icon Open Up Issue

My sister recently received an hp notebook as a gift with windows 7 installed on it out of the box. For the first few weeks it was running fine and then sometime last week while uploading pictures from her digital camera on the default program, it did something to where all the icons on the desktop and the start menu are the microsoft office picture manager icon. Whenever you click any icon, say for google chrome, or itunes, it will open up picture manager. The only icons ive been able to get anywhere with have been the system tools and i am not really sure what to uninstall to make the default program go away.

Icons Issue When Accidentally Change Default Program

I accidentally changed the default program used to open .zip files under one of my user accounts (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Based on another user account, i figured out that it should be set to windows explorer. Changing it back restored the functionality - so zip files are once again opening correctly. But the .zip files now appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the zip icon?
