Windows 7 live email does not recognized a . Pps file. The default program works if the . Pps file is saved to windows 7 system. What do i need to set in windows 7 live to make this connection? I use windows 7 live email. I can process . Pps  files successfully is they are stored or copied onto my system. The "default" program has been set to microsoft office power point and when i click on a . Pps file the power point presentation is accessed.

If i try to access a . Pps file that is embedded in an email i get a message that there is no program associated with the file type and i shipbuild set the default for the file type. Any one have a solution to this problem?

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

Usb Flash Drive Error - Volume Does Not Contain Recognized File System

I plugged in my usb flash drive into a computer using windows 7. It always prompts me to scan and fix or cancel. I canceled every time, but i got annoyed with it popping up every time, so i told it to scan and fix. A loading screen came up so i patiently waited. After completion it asks to format my usb flash drive. I can't format it though because i have homework files and all my other personal files on there. So i canceled the format, but every time i plug it into my computer it asks t format it. I even plugged it into a computer running on windows xp and it wanted to format it.

When i try to run it without formatting it it says, "e: is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted. " My question is, what did windows 7 do to my flash drive and how do i recover my data?

Live Email

For the last month or so, i believe you did an update or change to live.com, it is very frustrating. It loads, reloads, reloads, clicks and clacks before i can get started addressing my emails or writing an email. The send to space will not take a name unless i mouse click it. When i open live.com email i have to wait while it loads and reloads about four times. Very frustrating. I loved it before, but can't have an email account that wastes my time as i use it for work. Is this only my problem or a problem with the new update?

Live Email Vs Outlook

I used to use outlook to get my mail, now windows 7 doesn't work with it. I did the steps to add my email account to their windows live email and set my password. With regular outlook, when i would click the icon, the small password box would first open and the email window would not appear until the password was entered. When i click on this live icon, the email window opens (the preview window pane) and then the small password window appears in the middle of it.

Granted, you can't actually click on the folders in the mail window without entering the password, but you can see the messages waiting in the preview pane! What's the use of needing a password if people can still kind of see some of your emails? How do you get it to work more like outlook, where the email window will not open at all until the password is entered? Plus, nothing from my email account has come over to this live account (i.e. My contacts or the messages in my folders, including any new messages). I thought it was supposed to transfer the email account when i went through the add an account steps?

Logging Onto Live Email

I am referred here by the windows live help forum. "After reviewing your concern i have determined that you need to get in touch with the support group of your windows operating system. I suggest that you contact the technical support group of windows 7. They are the appropriate team to address your inquiry. "  The problem is stated below.

I recently installed windows 7 on two of my three computers. When attempting to log into my windows live email account on one of the computers it does not recognize my password. My id and password are recognized when i log in on my other two computers, one with windows 7 and the other with xp and also when i log in from my work site. I am able to access normal internet through explorer 8 without any difficulty.

In my attempts to solve the problem one of the messages i have come across is "default mail client is not properly installed"  the solution offered does not seem to fit the windows 7 format. It tells me to go to tools-internet options-programs and change a setting that does not exist on windows 7.

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?

Cannot Email Photos In Live Mail

I've just had a new pc with windows 7 and windows live mail, and am still getting used to it, so very sorry if i am just being plain thick! I can send and receive regular emails fine, unless i add an photo - then, they are sent but not received. I have a couple of email addresses and have been trying all day to send myself a photo from one to the other, but the only way it worked was by
Sending it from my hotmail address online (not from windows live mail).

Do you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I am using the 'add photos' button then selecting a photo from my pictures, clicking 'add' and 'done' and everything seems to work ok, but non of the emails have arrived back.

Sending Pics Via Email Live

I have had my computer since feb. It is a gateway, 8gb, 1tb and was working very nicely up until about a month ago when i started having problems sending pics via e-mail/through windows live. I pull up the pic to send and the windows live box comes up but when i go to send a little box comes up, telling me that there are initializing errors with my hotmail acct inbox, outbox, etc. With a red circle by each remark. It also gives me an error id ox80070057 and suggested i go to support live.com to find out what that meant. I did and it said something was stuck in my outbox.

Well, i deleted all but 28 e-mails deleted every pic off my live profile, deleted all cookies and temp files, deleted some pictures, deleted programs that w don't use and/or don't need- oh. This
Is also because in the windows live mailbox that comes up to send the pics, behind the other box i get a message saying check your computer for low disk space and or low memory.

I don't have anything on my computer other than my pics, a few(4)) documents(small) & music. I'm wondering what is causing this and how can i fix it? Could it be all the songs my boyfriend has downloaded? I think it might be. He did delete 2 play-lists, but i just looked and there are like 30 hours worth of music on here and almost 430 songs that i can find. I told him i think those songs are causing the problem, but i could b wrong.

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!

Specific Contact Lists Live Email

Before upgrading to windows 7, there are several functions i had that are now not functional:

1) contact lists - i used to have a "main" contact list, special contact lists i.e. , "Historical", "family" and i moved email ids into the special contact folders/lists and they were deleted/removed from the "main" list. Now, i can create the special folders, and can move email id's into the special lists, but the email id in the main contact list remains - now in two places, not one. If i delete the email id from any of the contact folder/lists, it's deleted from all of the contact lists. Surely, the techno twits (term of endearment) didn't screw up a great function of email contact folders/lists?

2) what's with the faded look of emails now? You don't have any old *** like me who find this hard to read/see? And, my husband is legally blind and even with his enhancer the fadeout on the emails is almost impossible to "see". What were you thinking? If you want to distinguish read from non-read, use a different color or anything else. Where's the option for me to get rid of this "seeing insensitive" faded/fadeout look that came with windows 7? Again, what were you thinking?

Start Live Mail Without Importing Any Email

How to start windows live mail without importing any email? I have just downloaded windows live mail for the purposes of creating some screenshots for a service i am providing. I just want to run the program, without importing any of my old email out of outlook (which takes up many gb's), however windows live mail seems to insist on importing all of my old mail when i start it.

As my old mail folders are so large, windows live mail basically just freezes, and there is nothing i can do except close it using the task manager. Is there some way to start windows live mail without it insisting on importing old email?By the way, i really think windows should come with the old windows mail, which just is a far superior email product to windows live mail in my opinion.

Creating File Associations For Email Attachments

To date i have been unable to locate a free download that will provide for file association with e.g .doc , pps and other email attachments. None of the options in the default programmes site have worked. The sender of the .doc attachment advises it was created with microsoft word using windows xp. Tried association with wordpad which came up as notepad and opened attachment which was not legible. There appear to be plenty of commercial offerings to solve the issue but are there any reliable free downloads?

Live File System Burning Problem

I had a problem with windows 7 home premium & live file system burning. Slow burning and reduced dvd disc capacity - see orig post below. This is not an uncommon problem and is windows 7 related - it is a universal disk format file system driver issue. There is a hotfix available - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975617. See issue 3. It worked.

"I burn slowly at 500k and approx. 1gb will "fill" a 4. 7gb dvd. I've updated drivers, bios, motherboard chipset drivers, burner firmware and installed a new burner. Nero burns fine as does a mastering burn. Dvd+r & dvd-r discs are affected. Dvd-rw burn fast and with no problems. I have done a clean install of windows 7 and applied updates, yet i have the same problem. There is no av or other software running - just windows 7. All drivers are windows certified afaik. No usb devices either.

If i do a clean install of vista sp2 business on the same machine, there is no problem and i can burn live file system dvd discs on any media at >3mb/sec and get full disc capacity. So it's definitely windows 7 related. "

Pdf File Association Not Found In Live Mail

If a message received in live mail on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit machine contains a pdf file attachment, that attachment cannot be opened from live mail. Word file attachments and others can be opened.

When the attempt to open the pdf file attachment is made, the message informs that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " If the file is saved to the local computer, it can be opened normally, as the file association is correct. This is confirmed by typing assoc .pdf in a command window and receiving the response ".pdf=acroexch.document". How can opening pdf documents from live mail be accomplished without saving them first.

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?

Live Movie Maker Project File Loses Slides

I opened a windows live movie maker project file and it suddenly loses slides and/or videos and loses maybe 3-5 minutes. If i click on a title or caption and make a simple change, then click the 'undo' button, the missing minutes, etc are restored, but all the captions are misaligned and can only be realigned by painstakingly moving each caption. In an experiment tonight, using a copy on another drive, i had to 'find' the slides to get images to appear. All was fine until i located a video. That's when the file lost minutes. What's going on?

I have a simple tech 250 signature mini external hard drive (which is compatible just to plug in and use according to microsoft)that is not working on my new dell studio laptop, the harddrive works on all other computers in my house hold with out windows 7. Been surfing last 3 days on net to try and fix the problem since all my important files from old desktop are on it, thing i have tried :

Updated all drivers that i know about
Updated bios off dell.com
Updated 3 different chipset versions
Tried simple tech for drivers but only have a version for windows 98
Unplugged battery and power supply

Updated windows various times even trying optional updates i thought would affect it. Tried small 2g usb drive and it worked properly, also mouse i am using currently

Note: when drive gets plugged in red light comes on and starts running properly, not a power supply issue. I go to device manager and its there but listed as unknown device, i update drivers and it says all drivers are up to date or not needed for device, the disk is not recognized in disk management.

Usb Device Not Recognized

I just purchased a toshiba notebook satellite l500. It has stickers shown windows 7 on the notebook but i can't find the windows cd in the packaging. I have alot of problems with this notebook till i can't do my homework and run basic tasks.

Problem 1) the system always prompt 'setting up for 1st time use' in every time i switch on the notebook. Then all the setting in internet explorer are reset and not reflecting what i changed to.

Problem 2) when i plug in my imation apollo 2. 5" portable hdd (25 phdd-500gb), the windows shown 'usb device not recognized'. I tried using ms fix tool but still doesn't work.

Problem 3) i added a password into my account which is also administrator account. The same password works when pc starting up but it doesn't work when i tried to switch pc back from sleeping mode with the same password. It shown me 'account being disabled'. I see no option in the control panel for me to activate this account again.

Problem 4) whenever i switch on my notebook, the screen shown 'system preparation tool 3. 14'. What is this for and is it recommended to have this? If not, pls advice how to switch this off at windows 7. I found some procedure to switch off at windows vista but not 7. Apologize for i can't differential between toshiba's problem or window's problem. All i know, i have some frustration to get things done with this new notebook and windows 7.

Usb Driver Not Recognized

I keep getting error message "usb driver not recognized" every three seconds? And it does not identify which one has malfunctioned! Normally, the only one attached is my mouse. Printer (canon mx100 series) won't work! Everything is hooked up, driver downloaded (from canon) and it still just won't work. I had a canon sent to me with this laptop. (Which worked, finally) i am not a novice either, been working with and on others computers for over 25 years!

Running windows vista home premium program and trying to use outlook express. Being told windows live has taken over as the new outlook, however, keep being told to sign up for hotmail. When you do? You keep being told to sign up for hotmail? Then it'll tell you that you have no inbox (and you never get to your email even though its telling you you have many emails sent to you already).

This is so awesome (or is it awful?) Think its time for a mac rather than a pc.
