Making Eudora Work With Win 7


I recently installed windows 7. I use eudora as my default email program and i have found that i can only run eudora as the "administrator". That is not my problem. A couple of months after installing the new version of eudora and windows 7 i lost the ability to attach files to emails. Everytime i hit the attach button, the "open" window appears but is totally frozen. Eudora also freezes. I have to use task manager to close eudora. What could have changed to cause this problem?

Making Videos Stream Better

I run windows 7 on an hp laptop with 2 gigs of ram

Okay, with what i have, are there any tweaks i can make to allow, say, youtube to stream without constantly rebuffering

During the early morning, things stream fine, so obviously in the evening when so many are online my connection is slow

Is it possible to tweak something so the buffer will fill up, then youtube plays, while the buffer refills without interruptions.

How To Automate Making A Full Backup?

I would like to automate the process of making a full backup of my system. I would like the procedure to include the following tasks:

1) check the drive for errors and bad blocks
2) clean-up obsolete files
3) defragmenting the drive
4) make an image of each block on the hard drive that contains data
5) if the the backup fails to validate send me an email
6) issue one command to activate the process

What is the easiest way to prepare a script file that performs these tasks running windows 7 ultimate 32-bit in dual mode with windows xp professional?

Media Player 12 Making A Playlist

In windows media player 11, you could edit your playlist on the right side pane. While you were editing it, you could navigate your whole library and play files. However, wmp 12 removed that feature.

I start to make a playlist on the right side pane, then play a song (on the left; from my library) to see if it would go well in my playlist. But if you play the song on the left, the right side pane switches from your playlist to "now playing" which is the album of the song you clicked on from the left.

That seems like a huge down-grade. Why did this feature get removed?  How can i fix it?

Flash Player Making Browsers Crash

Whenever i use a site, such as youtube on any browser, (have tried opera, ie, firefox, chrome) i get the "not responding" message. I found this : http://forums. Techguy.org/windows-7/908928-browser-crash-windows-7-a.html and my problem sounds very similar, however i dont know how he resolved his problem. Just some info : running new laptop, windows 7 64bit.

I have tried updating and reinstalling the flash-player alot, when i go to the adobe site it says it is successfully installed. And just to make the whole thing worse, it doesn't always happen when i have just rebooted the system, however i don't think this is due to a problem with hardware, i have 4gb ram, 2. 1s something ghz processor.

Making Secondary Drive Primary In Win7

I purchased a cheap e-machines, because it was a 32-bit system. Unfortunately, the hd it came with was a tiny 320gb. I have a secondary drive that is 1. 5gb and apparently much faster than the cheap one used by the factory. I'd like to know several things, from someone who knows/tried (successfully) exactly how this works, particularly with 7. What i don't know, is how 7 acts, in comparison to previous versions. I have a couple legit copies of vista, and xp.

If during this procedure, something goes awry, and say i lose the original version of vista that's etched somewhere on my system, can i still install the win 7 upgrade kit disc, using a previous version of vista (even if it's oem)? And what's the easiest and most likely to result in successful transfer?

Making Live Mail Keep Running On Taskbar

Locking Up When Making A Video Clip Fullscreen

I have a fully updated windows 7 home premium, adobe flash player 10, and the latest version of catalyst (video driver). Whenever i full screen a video from say youtube.com or cbs.com or the like it plays for a second and then the entire screen goes black and starts to flash and the computer pretty much has to be turned off at the psu because it doesn't respond to any commands like ctrl+alt+del etc. Any suggestions?

Update: noticed in one of the screen flashes that it said something along the lines of 'display driver amd has stopped functioning and recovered'. I am still unable to do anything after it starts flashing.

Making Synctoy Autoplay When Usb Drive Is Plugged In

I'm running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I asked this question over on experts-exchange, and they couldn't figure it out, so i'm hoping you all will have some ideas. I have a portable external usb harddrive. I use microsoft synctoy to "echo" files from one folder on my internal harddrive to a folder on the external harddrive. What i'm trying to do is have the synctoy program open when i plug in the external drive.

I've tried a few things. I went to the autoplay settings in the control panel and changed the mixed content setting to "ask me every time". That got the autoplay dialog to come up, but there was no way to select synctoy as the action to run. I also tried creating an autorun. Inf file in the root directory of the external harddrive. In it, i included the full path for synctoy on the computer. I tried this with and without quotation marks.

It seemed to have no effect on anything. Someone then suggested that i install microsoft tweakui, and have it add synctoy to the autoplay list. However, it appeared to me that tweakui isn't compatible with windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). I found compatibility on one of microsoft's windows 7 pages. Just to be clear, the goal is to get synctoy to open. I don't want the synchronization (echo) process to initiate.

Cannot Get Second Monitor To Work

I am connecting a second monitor to my sony vaio-vgn-sz650n-by vga. Before upgrading from vista to 7, it was working just fine. After upgrading, i plug it in, screen blinks, but no display on second monitor. It is a dell g2210 by the way. I tried restarting my computer with monitor connected, without it connected, and went into the display settings where you can change resolution, etc. On the different monitors, and nothing there. Tried to "detect" monitor, still nothing. Tried updating the driver, nothing(maybe wrong driver?). I would love to get this problem solved as school is starting and i need to use my computer a lot, and really like having dual monitors.

Cant Get Microphone To Work

As the title says, my computer does not recognize when i plug a microphone in. I am using a pair of headphones with a microphone attached to it. I have tried 2 different sets so i know the actual mic works.

Under control panel -> hardware and sound -> manage audio devices, recording tab, it says "no audio devices are installed" i have tried using 2 different ports and it still doesn't work.

I am running windows 7 home ultimate. Can anyone shed some light on what i can do?

Edit: i recently installed to windows 7 from vista, could it be that some sort of audio driver didnt get installed or xfered over correctly? How would i figure this out?

Autorun Does Not Work

I have windows 7 as does my daughter - i have several cd-rom games that worked on xp, the autorun facility works on my daughters laptop and installs the games, however it does not work on mine!  I have tried all the help solutions and compared settings on my computer against my daughters and everything is the same and all settings seem correct. The only thing i cannot find on mine (or my daughters) is the nodrivetypeautorun command which would enable me to change the data to 91.

Cannot Get Fallout 3 To Work

Can't get fallout 3 to work with win7, it worked fine with vista 32-bit, morrowind and oblivion work just fine on my win7 computer (same game engine, different versions). I've contacted bethesda and they responded with a completely generic copy/paste response, i'll throw the body of the email in here to get anyone who can help up to speed. Please note that the program is not tested or supported in windows 7. You may be able to run the program using compatibility mode in windows 7, but we cannot guarantee the program will function properly in this new operating system.

Program compatibility is a mode in windows that lets you run programs written for earlier versions of windows. Most programs written for windows xp also work in this version of windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not run at all. If an older program doesn't run correctly, start the program compatibility wizard to simulate earlier versions of windows.

To change compatibility settings for a program:

Note: do not use the program compatibility wizard on older antivirus programs, disk utilities, or other system programs, because it might cause data loss or create a security risk.

Note: if the compatibility options are grayed out, then it is a 64 bit program and cannot be changed. 1. Right-click the icon for the program.

2. Click properties.
3. Click the compatibility tab.
4. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode".

5. Choose the version of windows the program was made for. For best compatibility, choose the latest windows version the program was written for. Check the system requirements for the program if you are not sure.

6. It may also be necessary to check the box for "run this program as an administrator. "

7. Click apply and ok

Fallout 3 crashes to the desktop on game-startup, i have reinstalled and have tried to load the game with no patches, no mods, no utilities of any sort, and it still crashes. I don't know what to do, and it seems questions related to this issue are going unresolved on the bethesda forums.

Here's my system information:
Os: windows 7 64-bit
Motherboard: asus p5n-t deluxe (nvidia nforce 780i chipset)
Cpu: intel core 2 duo e8400 (3ghz)
Ram: 6 gb corsair ddr2 memory
Vga: nvidia (bfg) gtx 285 1024mb (driver version 196. 21)
Sound card: integrated

(Just an fyi, i have the steam version, but i doubt that should matter. ) I used to play the game on windows vista (32-bit), and it worked just fine, the computer is exactly the same as it was before i switched to windows 7.

See the attached dxdiag for details, i doubt you'll find anything though. Ill throw the dxdiag on my skydrive for those that want to see it (http://cid-51b65177f7aebc51. Skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/. Public?Uc=1 ) if the link doesn't work i will paste the text here. Sorry about the formatting i don't know how to fix it.

Cannot Get Backup To Work

Just set up a new windows 7 64 bit system. When i try to run "set up backup" i get a window that says "starting windows backup - please wait while windows backup starts, " but nothing ever happens. Just hangs on that. If i x out, it changes to "canceling" and hangs on that. When i ultimately go to task manager to end it, it says not responding.
 
I just want to set up an automatic backup to an external drive nightly, but i can't seem to get to step one. Anyone else having this issue?

P. S. Problem details:

Description:

A problem caused this program to stop interacting with windows.

Problem signature:

I do have another backup program installed - iomega automatic backup pro. I had that on my old xp system, and it transferred when i transferred to the new windows 7 system. The problem is that it doesn't work with windows 7 (which is why i am trying to use windows backup. ) I tried to uninstall it, but a window opens that says "preparing to uninstall, " and it just hangs at that - also not responding. I guess since the program doesn't work with windows 7, neither does the uninstall -
Or maybe it can't find the uninstall log. Is there a way to locate the actual executable that will uninstall iomega automatic backup pro? Or some other way to uninstall it?
 
Btw, i tried clean boot and had the same problem even with all startup items and services disabled (other than microsoft services and anti virus - i could not disable antivirus). Also tried the system check and found no problems.

More info: i booted in diagnostic mode and tried to uninstall. After activating windows installer, i tried to uninstall automatic backup pro. Instead of hanging, i got "the install script engine on this machine is older than the version required to run this setup. If available, please install the latest version of isscript. Msi. " So i think the isscript. Msi file is probably newer than that required, not older, but either way the installer doesn't recognize it. Is there a way to uninstall with xp scripts?

My Documents Shortcut Does Not Work

I am in a school environment where we do not allow students to access the c drive. We also redirect students my documentsť folder to a network file storage server. We are in the process of converting to windows 7 and found that when a student tries to access their my documentsť from their desktop they get an access denied message.

We would like to keep students from accessing the c drive but allow them the use of the desktop short cut for their my documentsť. We are pretty sure this is due to the fact that the my documentsť folder is now a subfolder on the desktop. Is there a simple fix to allow students access only to their my documentsť folder?

Delete drivers and reinstall. Nothing, now here is the weird thing, i can plug in usb devices in all ports and nothing is recognized. Have downloaded all win 7 drivers from the vendors, these devices light up, they get power, but will not work.

Wireless Mouse Does Not Work

I have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 4000 and a microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000. All of a sudden the mouse stopped working. I can see the cursor arrow on the screen but my mouse wont move it. My operating system is vista 64-bit. I have gone through all the diagnostic steps to no avail: replaced the batteries, downloaded the latest software from microsoft, changed usb ports, tried another computer and checked my device manager. The device manager tells me the mouse is working properly. It may be that the mouse is dead but i though before the burial that i would take a chance to see if anyone out there had a similar problem but solved it.
