Microsoft Works 7.0 - Out Of Memory Error

I just installed works 7. 0 onto my new computer with windows 7. 0-when i try to "print preview" or "print' a report, i get an "out of memory" error-it only does this on works, not in office or any other program. I also deleted, and reinstalled the program twice. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Microsoft Works 9 Security Update

I have been trying for the past 3 days now to install the microsoft works 9 security update onto my computer. I have tried through windows update and i have tried manually on the website (even where it lists that the new update is not recognizing office 2007 on computers). Still nothing! I need to update my computer fully! What do i do since it's not recognizing the folder on my computer for being installed already and not updating it? It tells me that once the folder is not recognized i have to cancel the installation and i need to be the administrator to give permission (which i am already). Help?

Microsoft Works Calendar Problems

I have a dell inspiron 14 running windows 7 and microsoft works came installed. I can't open the calendar. Error "works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the calendar. Try reinstalling works, and then starting the program again. " It did not come with a backup disk or any disk for that matter. So are they wanting me to purchase a whole new microsoft works program just for the calendar to work? I don't think so! Any suggestions?

Event Id 41 Task 63 Error

Since installing win7, home premium, 64bit, on a computer (6 days ago) i have been getting this error daily.computer initially used with win xp with no issues-this problem occurred after upgrading memory from 4 gb to 8 gb and installing win7 clean install. Memory passed memory test so i don't think the memory addition is the problem. Early instances involved bsod while running but after running system file checker which found and corrected errors i have not seen the bsod. Now the problem shows up on a cold start after what appeared to be a normal shut down.

Here is data:

Cannot Perform Any Administrator Task

Alright, i am running 32bit win 7 pro os. It was working almost great until now i see these messages everytime i do any administrative action like install, uninstall or run any application. "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect""the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation. ""You do not have sufficient access to uninstall . Application""an unexpected error has occurred. The troubleshooting wizard cannot continue"i cannot connect to the internet.

I cannot uninstall/install any application i cannot run most of the applications. I cannot run regedit.exe. I cannot even run on safe mode (by pressing f8)  i cannot turn on my firewall. I just cannot do any thing. I am in a software jail. I looked many things on the website but could not find anything that can solve my problems. I ran mcafee and everything is coming out clean. I can access my data though. How can i solve these problems without reinstalling windows 7.

Display, Task Manager

Okay, so i somehow changed the look of my task manager and now it doesn't help me with anything. It was the regular task manager when i bought it then one day it was just different. The only thing that it shows when i go to task manager after (ctrl, alt, del) is (headings at the top) user, id, status, client name, session. Thats all it shows as headings at the top. Then at the bottom it has two buttons, disconnect, log-off. When i try and right click to get more options it only shows disconnect or log-off as options.

Task Manager Does Not Start

When i try to start the task manager by right clicking the activity bar and selecting start task manager i get an error saying the taskmgr.exe file can not be found. The path suggested is c:windowssystem32askmgr.exe. When looking in that folder the file is there.

If i do ctrl-alt-delete and select to start it from there i get returned to the previous screen without task manager or error. Ctrl-shift-esc has no effect.

I've tried running a copy of the taskmgr.exe that worked on another computer running 64-bit windows 7. I am running a 64-bit windows 7 on intel core2 quad (q8300) any ideas?

Task Scheduler Under Administrator Tools

When i go into the task scheduler a message box appears which states "task background configsurveyor: the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with", when you click on the ok button it disappears, but it is comes up everytime you go into task scheduler. There no error code. I found a blogger who had a similar problem, but the instruction to fix it was for windows vista. I tried to follow the instructions and could not find the 'user_feed_synchronization' so i stopped. Is there a fix for windows 7 home edition, 32bit

Random Bsods - Event 41, Task 63

I am experiencing intermittent bsod crashes. The crashes do not correspond to high levels of activity, high operating temperatures or any other pattern that i can perceive. If anything, they occur most frequently shortly (seconds) after bootup or while the system is idle. The system is not overclocked. I have the latest bios available from msi and the latest optical drive, ethernet, gpu, and audio drivers.

(A side note on the ethernet driver. The latest version available from realtek's website is 7. 11. 1127. 2009.microsoft update recommended an update to the driver which i installed on feb. 6. This driver version was 7. 12. 128. 2009. I have experienced bsods with both versions of the driver. Currently i'm running realtek's latest version as i'm unclear how microsoft could have a more up-to-date version than the manufacturer. )

I have already tested the ram using memtest86. I've run in excess of 16 passes without returning any errors. I've also tested the hard drive using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility and chkdsk /r /f. Hard drive checks out fine. I've stress tested the system using prime95 and seti@home and the system has not shown any tendency to crash during stress testing. I've also run system file checker. It does not return any errors.

I've posted the minidump files here: http://expedientweb.com/bsod-dump.zip

I've posted the event logs here: http://expedientweb.com/event_log.zip

The critical events (which i assume are the bsod events) all run along these lines:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Task Manager Not Showing Options

There is no meters, nothing. I can't check my ram usage or cpu usage or anything. Error messages. I get a pop up every time i restart asking me what program i want to use to open the pop up. So i open it in notebook and it says it's something about my real-tech network device. And something about a loop. Recent changes you made to your computer. What you have already tried to fix the problem. I've tried to reset it following some advice on line but i just get the pop up now and it still doesn't work.

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?

Applications Crash And Cannot Be Closed Down In Task Manager

I have recently upgraded to windows 7 from vista as i bought my laptop about october last year and
Received a free upgrade. It worked ok for 2 days. Now i cannot open internet explorer or windows explorer. Applications crash and cannot be closed down in task manager. Windows will not log off or shut down. This is worse than the early days of vista. This has effectively ruined my laptop. I tried to log on to microsoft for technical help but my product key was rejected and i was asked to pay £46. 00. And i cannot download a compatible version of internet explorer

Scheduled Task Fails To Start Ms Access

I have scheduled task that worked in xp to open an access database. In w7 access starts (shows running in task manager), but will not run the code or interact with the desktop. Tried the following:

Trigger @ 5:30 am, action "start a program" program/script "c:path and name of msaccess.exe" , arguments = c:projectmiscreports. Mdb - no work

Made . Bat file with this code that works when double clicked:

Rem start misc reports

C:projectmiscreport. Mdb

Put this code in program/script c:projectsstartreports. Bat - same result no work

With all tha above, ms access is running in task manager, but will not show on the desktop

Task Manager Can't Log Off User

I have windows 7 home premium with three accounts on it. Frequently someone else uses one of two the standard account on it and locks it down, i come along and log in with my administrators and log in and try to kill off their session. When i run task manager, highlight the standard account and then click logoff i get an error message user amy (sessionid=1) could not be logged off. Access is denied.

I've tried running task-manager from the system32 folder as administrator (even though my account is administrator) but i still get the same message. The amy (the standard user account) at this point shows in task manager as disconnected. How can i log of the other two users without re-booting please?

Issue: Cannot Perform Any Task Using One Of The User Accounts

I've just installed windows 7 ultimate on an acer veriton m410. When logged in as administrator, the computer works without any problems. If i log in under my user name, there are several problems that take place. The first issue i noticed is i cannot explore "my computer. " I simply get an empty window and an icon indicating the computer is busy. Eventually, i get an error message that windows explorer needs to be restarted. I am not able to check the contents of my hard drive. In addition, when i try to log off from my user account, the computer stays on the log off screen continuously, and never logs me off. Again, if i am logged in as administrator, i have no problem logging off and shutting down the computer. Ny ideas how i can fix this?

Multiple Instances Of Explorer.exe Running In Task Manager

There are multiple instances of explorer.exe running in task manager (currently 7), each one using between 10-40mb of memory. I've never seen this in any previous version, and it doesn't look right to me. Different explorer.exe processes are using cpu resources at different times. I remember reading a while back that this could be a sign of a virus, but i've done a full scan with nis 2010 and nothing showed up. Can anyone give me pointers where to start investigating?

I did a clean install of windows 7 last friday -formatted hdd and all, so there hasn't been much time for anything bad to happen!

Only One Speaker Works On Headphones

This is not a problem with the headphones, i've tried multiple pairs, each of which works fine on other devices. Nor is it a problem with the left-right speaker balance as i've checked that setting. Oddly enough the inbuilt speakers work fine. Okay so with those checks out of the way, i'm using a 2 week old acer aspire timeline as3810t running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just a few days ago suddenly i notice that when using headphones only the left speaker gives any sound. It's like the right speaker doesn't exist. I emailed acer tech support but they didn't reply and it's been 4 days. The laptop has a hdmi out and a black audio jack with a headphones icon and the letters spdif. I've also tried uninstalling the audio thing in device manager and downloaded the latest drivers, all to no avail.

I just had a hunch that completely wiping the hard disk and reinstalling windows would fix the problem, as it's hard to imagine that the audio jack just died (jiggling it around does not work). So before i do that and before i make a warranty claim, i was thinking someone would be able to show me how to check the relevant settings etc without completely obliterating the current windows installation.

Ram Works On Xp But Not On Win 7

I've recently upgraded to windows 7 from windows xp, upon trying to install windows 7 i frequently kept getting bsods so i took all but one piece of ram out figuring that would be the likely problem (as this has happened in the past with windows 7 installations i have done) sure enough windows 7 then installed perfectly. However, all of my ram doesn't work with windows 7, apart from one 1gb stick, all the other sticks cause my pc to bsod. I find it hard to believe that all of my pieces of ram are faulty, so i'm left wondering on what it is that's not letting my ram work. As i said, this ram worked fine with windows xp, but just not windows 7 (or windows vista)

Reserve How Fn Button Works?

I have an hp g62-134ca. On my old computer (running vista) i used to use f2 to edit cells in excel instead of having to double-click. It saved me a lot of time. On my new computer (g62-134ca), the fn button works in reserved. In other words, if i press f2, the monitor brightness is decreased (f3 makes the monitor brighter). To edit an excel cell, i need to press the fn + f2 combo (or double-click with my mouse). I'm wondering if there's a way that i could reverse how the fn button works so that if i press f2, i edit an excel cell, and if i press fn + f2 i decrease the monitor brightness. Thank you for any tips!

Only 64-bit Ie Works In Win 7

I upgraded to windows 7 about a month ago and can only use ie 64 bit to connect to the internet. My 32 bit ie doesn't connect (i.e. Program files (x86)). That means flash does not work and i have been unable to connect using quicken, napster, itunes, thunderbird, and other programs that i use (all these programs say i have no internet connection and to try again after i connect or something to that effect). I'm only speculating that the latter issue (many programs not recognizing my internet connection) is related to the same problem (i.e. 64 v. 32 bit).

Monitor Only Works With Analogue Input

I have installed windows 7 on a new hard disk in my pc. I also have a new graphics card geforce gt240. When running vista my monitor was connected via dvi only. When i boot up the machine the monitor works until just after the windows logo and then goes blank. It works fine with an analogue cable. I have installed the latest driver from nvdia for the graphics card. In device manager the monitor driver shows up as generic non pnp monitor. It is a viewsonic 20inch flat panel monitor and is definitely pnp.

It works fine in dvi on another machine running xp so the monitor is ok. I tried loading a new viewsonic driver but the installation said it couldn't detect my monitor and aborted. Should i try to install a generic pnp monitor driver and if so where can i get one?

Freezes And Works In Safe Mode Only

Acer aspire 7740-6656 laptop less than 6 mos old windows 7 home premium 64 bit intel core i5-430m processor w/4 gb ddr3 1066 sd ram, & hd on-board graphics problem: currently only run windows in safe mode:when run in normal mode windows runs for 5 min, then freezes which prevents anything from working - keyboard, touchpad, even the screen freezes. For instance if windows is in the process of upgrading as it was today the install window freezes. All that can be done is to power off machine and reboot into safe mode - note: safe mode networking does not work either.

Have tried system restore in safe mode with success of taking system back but it does not resolve the problem. Acer ts is no help, they are useless and all windows diagnostics show no hardware or software issues when run in safe mode. Have done several re-installs of the os, drivers, etc. From the hidden partition on the hard drive with no resolution and there are no error messages generated when the system locks up.

Only Internet Explorer 64-bit Works

Only internet explorer 64 bit works. I've searched everything. And no answers. I believe it a driver thing but i know others have experienced this issue.google chrome won't work nor will firefox, nor will ie 32 bit. Multiple reboots. Total scan, don't have norton, installed nod 32 and uninstalled it, did the winscock things as admin, all the other suggestions too. Problems with adobe flash downloads. Etc. Yes, i've done everything and tried everything and still no fix! Why is none from microsoft giving an answer.

It happened before about 2 months ago to me and i roll backed to a date. Then it worked. Then re-installed all windows update. All was working fine then google chrome stopped working. Just like that 3 days ago. I tried to restore/rollback to that same date and nothing. Then went through all the updates again and a million other things. I don't want a work around. I want a fix! Can anyone suggest the boot method so both 32 & 64 bit drivers work properly? It's very frustrating. It's a new hp computer running windows 7 64-bit and windows essentials as my antivirus.

Audio On Webcam No Longer Works

I am pretty sure that since i ended up with 64 bit system type, that is when my audio stopped working on webcam. I know when i upgraded to windows 7 the webcam disappeared, was so happy when i got it back thanks to this site, i didn't even notice the sound was gone. Anyway, have to use google to use alot of things i need. I just want to change back to 32 bit, anyone else have an idea what could be wrong or how to go back, i would appreciate it very much. I would go back to vista if i didn't have to go through so many changes again. So far i don't see where windows 7 is anything but a pain in the butt.
