Recover Email Messages From Winmail

I just installed win7 on a clean/new hard drive. What i am trying to do is recover my email messages from my old hard drive that has vista installed on it, the old hard drive is slaved in on my machine. I am using outlook on my win7 install and i hope to be able to import/recover the email messages into outlook.

The problem i am having is finding where winmail had stored all my email messages on the old hard drive with the vista installation on it. When i try opening "documents and settings" on the
Drive with vista installed i get the message "access denied" "the g:documents and settings not accessible". If i need to clarify or answer any questions let me know.

Where Do I Find The Address Book?

I never used outlook address book on my old computer. Instead i synchronized my very old sony clea program. However it broke sometime ago but i continued to update and add addresses into my computer using that program. Unfortunately, the program did not transfer into my new windows 7 program and i need to create a whole new address book to work with. Where do i find the address book on windows 7. I no longer have outlook or outlook express. I am not computer savvy and really need help with this.

Address Book Problem

The contents in groups in my hotmail address book keeps diminishing. Yesterday i placed over 100 email addresses in a group labeled 'crew' these took  a long time to do. Today i have 16 in the crew folder.

The addresses overall totals change daily getting less and less and finally the getting rid of duplicates is almost impossible. I have over 5000 in there which i cannot remove unless its done individually. Finally, when it does get around to working it will locate the name to merge and not the email address so in effect 2 john smiths get singled out with two separate email addresses only to be merged and one address lost.

Disappearing Address Book

Went into windows live mail to send an email and all my addresses had disappeared. Gone.zip. Found them in a folder on the computer. Reinstalled them in windows live again only to have them move 4 more times. The contacts stay in windows mail for a few days then zip. Gone and i have to reinstall them again. And this morning i got a pop up that said sticky notes weren't working, ms didn't know why, and they would get back to me when they found a solution. I'm already old. I don't know how much more time i have. These little glitches are enough to turn me into a mac person.

Outlook 2003 Address Book Problem

I have installed office 2003, including outlook 2003, onto my new computer and then transferred my outlook 2003 settings from my old computer (windows xp sp3 - 32 bit) to my new computer (windows 7 - 64 bit) using the windows easy transfer program. All the e mails and settings transferred successfully except my address book contacts. The contact details are all present and correct in the contacts folder in outlook 2003 on my new computer, but do not show up in my address book.

When i right click on the contacts folder and select properties, i see that the "show this folder as an e-mail address book" is greyed out. I have seen els where in this forum that this probably means that my mail profile is corrupted and that i have to generate a new profile. Please advise how i can do this in an easily understandable step by step procedure.

Address Book In Outlook 2007 Not Functioning

I just converted my computer from xp to windows 7 and pretty much all went well. The following did not go well: address book - i exported from outlook express 2003 and imported to microsoft office outlook 2007.

- All contacts were imported to outlook 2007 correctly - i can see them, however, outlook 2007 does not automatically recognize an email account that exists in the contacts. Ex. If i have a contact "email removed for privacy" while in the to field of a new mail item i want to send.

- I type "123" outlook 2007 does not recognize the contact. I have to search within my address book for the individual. Outlook express 2003 did recognize the "123" and automatically populated the to field. Is there something that i have to configure differently in the address book of outlook 2007?

Access Winmail

I have just purchased a new laptop with windows 7. I run outlook express on my old lap top (xp) and now want to use outlook 2007 on my new one. I managed to copy the contacts with no problem but am having difficulty transferring the messages. I see on another help forum that the best way to copy my messages is to put them into winmail just by transferring using a thumb drive and then use outlook to import them from winmail. I have tried importing them both across the network to my old computer and from the thumb drive and neither works.

I have the folders on my thumb drive now and have found winmail on the new computer however i can't get it to run. Another forum suggests that i take full control of the permissions but it doesn't seem to want to let me do that. Surely there must be a simpler way of running winmail.

Western Digital My Book Missing Driver

I have two wd mybook storage devices. Both worked on my previous pc running xp 32 bit. I have now rewed my pc running windows 7 64 bit. One device works the other doesn't and when i troubleshoot the one that doesn't the troubleshooter indicates a missing driver. Curiously the older of the two drives works ok.

I've been in contact with western digital who state they do not provide separate drivers as they utilise what microsoft provide, of course reading the answers blog microsoft state that its not their issue either, which leaves me, and apparently others, with unaccessible data & $100 out of pocket and no one is responsible. Can someone please advise where i can download the microsoft driver from that thewestern digital device relies on?

Western Digital My Book Usb Connection Problem

I have been informed by wester digital that it is not compatible with windows 7 and was informed to ask if there is a download or patchesfor this to work, i have loads of things stored on my book and im worried that i have lost it all.

This is the email i received from western digital

As this is one of our older models, it is not necessarily compatible with windows 7. The new operating system has not included drivers for some plug and play devices that were included with earlier versions, therefore this is most likely the reason why it is not recognised. You could contact windows to ask if they have a download or a patch for this but the drive should still be accessible on computers running xp or vista.

Page 1 in the manual shows it is compatible with xp and vista but not 7.

Many Messages About Updates Before Shut Down

Every time i click on the start up button, there is a little yellow shield with a exclamation mark in the center (). It says that i have updates to install, so far, nothing bad has happened. It's just that it takes a long time to shut down with the updates. It's happened about 4 times already ranging from 5 to 26 updates. I'm thinking that this can't be right. Why would there be so many updates to install? Testing it out, i immediately shut down the computer and let it install updates, then after that, i turned it on and waited, sure enough, there were more updates to be installed. I don't know if this is a some kind of bug of virus but the more i know and the faster it's resolved, the better i'll feel.

Error Messages Cause Program Closure

I recently upgraded from vista to windows 7. I have been using a bookkeeping program, cashbook complete, successfully for a few years. Recently when i am making an entry, i can enter the date, reference, category, notes and amount. Then when i click the tab button, a pop-up message headed microsoft access, saying "run-time error '70' permission denied". I can only click end. Another pop-up appears, saying "execution of this application has stopped due to a run-time error.

This application can't continue and will be shut down". I click ok. Then a pop-up headed microsoft access says, "run-time error '91' object variable or with block variable not set". I can only click end, and the program closes. I have noticed that this only happens when i enter an income amount, and not when i enter an expense amount. This makes my program useless.

Open File - Security Warning Messages

How can i get rid of those annoying insipid "open file - security warning" messages that drive me nuts every time i execute a program? I've set my user account control to the lowest setting, but those messages still pop up. Isn't there some way to stop them short of opening every program on the computer and un-checking the "always ask before opening this file" box?

Live Mail Issue With Notification Of New Messages

How to make windows live mail notify of new messages continuously & stay in notification area upon program close. Windows live mail can sound a new mail alert, but only once. It can also be in the notification area / taskbar, but does not continue to notify. I would like continuous notification because when i step away and come back, i won't know unless i manually open the program whether i got new mail. I would also like to have it remain in the notification area even if i close the program.

Receiving Messages Of Running Or Blocked Drivers

Where can i find running or blocked drivers?I have windows 7 64. Yesterday i installed a game, it's a bought download version. The last thing to be installed is a tool which controls the serial and let me play without a dvd (at least i think it is). I don't remember this tools name but it installs a driver that windows 7 64 don't like, and this driver is being blocked by windows. I uninstalled the game, but the driver is still there.

Everytime i start the computer this driver block info is popping up. How do i fix this? Where can i see which drivers is running or being blocked. I want to remove the driver, and i think i'll remember the name if i see it. I checked the (don't show this info again) which i shouldn't have done, the name was there.

Cannot Access New Messages In Outlook Office 2007

Can't access new messages in outlook or windows live - new office 2007 installation. Tried to change or remove password from outlook (and windows live/connector) but i must have mistyped something and now i can't get my emails. I tells me to go to my secret question, which i have done - then it says "you've failed the login too many times". It also asks me to have them send the correct password to my email account; how crazy is that - since the only email account it lists is the one i cannot possibly access.

It does give me an option to have them to respond to a different account, but when i give them the gmail account it tries to work on the password i set up in gmail, not the one in outlook. How can someone reset a password when they can't even get into their account? Or how can we resent/delete password if after a few tries we are locked out for good?  Help, please! I haven't been able to access important emails for several days.

Accessing Messages Imported In Live Mail

I am migrating from outlook express 6 (oe6) to windows live mail (wlm). So i changed the location of store in oe6 and imported the folders in wlm. It seemed to import them ok. But i can't access the messages in wlm? I even looked in "imported folder" under "storage folders" but the mail messages are not there.

I tried another thing. I changed the store location in wlm. It gave a message that it is copying 17k messages (which is about what i had in all the folders i had imported) into the new location, so i know they are there.

(1) how do i access those messages in wlm?
(2) i only see edb and some other files in the wlm store location but not the neatly organized folders that i imported from oe6?

Error Messages - Msdsm Driver Incompatibility - Loss Of Restore Points

Sp2 won't install properly - black screens - cryptic error messages- msdsm driver incompatibility- loss of restore points. I tried to install the important update of vista sp2 on my hp dv7 64-bit computer. The latest windows update (service pack 2) gave me a warning that "msdsm" driver is incompatible with the service pack. It offered no solution or identification of what msdsm is.

I stupidly chose the option to continue the update installation anyway. After downloading the update and then attempting the required restart, the computer got through installation stage 1 of 3. Near the beginning of stage 2, the computer restarted, then moved to a black screen, with a changing one-line dos message seeming to scan files. It got up to a file number 3592 of ~75000 and would not go further, just kept flashing the same file name and number (with exclamation points!).

I finally held the power button in to shut down and manually restart. The system repair program began and eventually offered a system restore. I elected the system restore and it restored successfully. I checked to see what restore point it had restored to and noticed that all my restore points (except for the sp2 installation) had disappeared.

I also got an error message for norton internet security 2009 indicating that antivirus had shut down and it needed to run live update. Surprisingly it found 75mb of updates even though i had been fully updated prior to the sp2 installation. Thanks a lot microsoft for an unwanted "improvement" that causes far more problems than it solves. I recommend strongly that nobody install sp2 unless and until ms gets this straightened out.

Chronic Raid 0 Error Messages In Bios / Matrix Storage Console

Chronic raid 0 error messages in bios and in intel matrix storage console. I have had several dell xps computers with raid 0 where within a few weeks or a few months during bootup i get an "error occurred (0)" message regarding one of the two disks under the "physical disks" heading on the screen where it reports on the raid drive. Fter the computer has booted intel matrix storage console gives the message for one of the drives "hard drive reports read or write to it failed"  (says backup may still be possible and to back up immediately because the drive is about to fail).

Dell tech support always says that the problem is either the disk controller on the motherboard (studio xps) or a hard disk problem. Several times they have replaced the motherboard and disk drives or the whole computer. But then within six months the same error message occurs. This time i got a blue screen before the message occurred , but  the computer rebooted ok except it gave the same error message as noted above on bootup and the same message in intel matrix storage console.

I have never had any of the computers fail to boot after giving the error messages, or have any symptom except the error message. It seems obvious that there couldn't have been a problem with that many hard disks, and dell does not acknowledge knowing about any design defect in the raid controller. (The exact same messages occurred with 100 percent different computers).

I wonder if there is not a software problem causing the error message and that there is really no hardware problem. I wonder what i should do when the warranty is up. Throw the computer away?  Live with the error message on the assumption that it doesn't mean anything? If it is some kind of software problem could that still cause the computer not to work?

Ip Address Not Resolving

There is one website i try to type into my browser address bar that will not come up and i get an error message saying it is taking too long for the page to load. I tried pinging the website using the web address and saw that my computer was looking for the wrong ip address. I am on a network and the other computers have no problem going to this address and ping to the correct ip address. I was not having this problem until this week, just after an update for windows 7 was downloaded. I don't know if this is a coincidence.

I have tried everything: flushing dns, changing my internet protocol to use a server number given to me by my internet service provider to use a specific dns address, clearing my cache, history and anything else i could think of. My isp does not see any problem on there end and can't help me any more. I do not seem to have this problem with any other website and unfortunately, for me, i need to update this website. If you have any suggestions i'd really like to hear them. I do not have a lot of computer expertise but will try to follow your suggestions.

Ip Address Changes On Router Reboot

Running windows 7 cabled to wireless router. Occasionally broadband "drops out" and when rebooting router ip address for wireless printer (epson stylus office tx610fw) changes form 10. 1. 1. 2   to 10. 1. 1. Something depending on how many laptops are connected. As a result i have to go into control panel, hardware & sound select the printer then via 'settings' select the printer and add it manually with new ip address. Obviously irritating as other family members, despite printed instructions, cannot manage it. Please, is there anyway to 'lock' the ip address so it doesn't change?
