    Being bugged by Norton!!

    pishbloom2 - yes, you're right that Norton has had the deserved reputation of being a resource hog. But as KLR wrote, Norton has gotten a lot better: Norton 360 really isn't too bad in using resources -- my main complaint is its constant pestering to have you sign up for a Norton Account. Now...

    Being bugged by Norton!!

    Thanks, KLR. I thought of doing this, but being a rebel at heart don't like bureaucracy forcing us to stoop to their level! ;>) What I was hoping to learn (for example) is whether we aggravated Norton 360 users could delete the file AcctMgr.dll (in the Norton 360 folder > Engine), and be...

    Being bugged by Norton!!

    Does anyone have any idea how to stop Norton 360 ver. 3 from constantly bugging you to establish a "Norton Account"? (-- Yes, I know the easy answer: Go ahead and set up a Norton Account!) Norton 360 tells you that setting up a Norton Account is optional. OK, if it's optional why can't I...

    Word2000 Clipboard toolbar docks itself

    I wrote in my original posting (1st sentence, 2nd paragraph) that I tried Detect & Repair (several times, in fact). It doesn't help.

    Word2000 Clipboard toolbar docks itself

    Hi DjH6064 - Thanks for trying to help. Yes, I've done exactly that -- dragged the clipboard toolbar so it floats next to the text I'm working on, then I close Word, and when I re-open Word, the clipboard toolbar is once again docked! I can't get it to stop docking itself!!

    Word2000 Clipboard toolbar docks itself

    Hi - I hope somebody can solve this. I use Word 2000 (9.0, 3821 SR-1) and use the *floating* Clipboard toolbar a lot in my work. Somehow - I don't know how - the Clipboard toolbar now docks itself automatically, so that every time I close and reopen Word, and then press Ctrl-C twice to display...

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    727Luddite and Ray - I want to thank you for the great suggestions. I finally had time to reinstall PhotoDraw and use the Compatibility Wizard. It's a relief to be able to load the images again that I had edited with PhotoDraw. Sure it's inconvenient not being able to save file names with more...

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    727Luddite - Thanks for telling me this. As soon as I get some time I'll try the Compatibility Wizard (should have thought of this!), and will see if I get the same result as Ray with only single letter file names.

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    I discovered today that my Office 2000 CD has Microsoft Photo Editor included. I hadn't installed it since I wanted to use Microsoft PhotoDraw (also included in my edition of Office 2000). Well, since I came to a dead-end with PhotoDraw now that I'm using Windows XP, I thought I'd try Photo...

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    Stoner, I'll take a look at my installation disk for Windows 98se to see if Picture It is included. If it is, I'll try to find out if I can install it under XP. Thanks for the tip!

    Kiwiguy, Thanks for your message. The image format I used in PhotoDraw was .mix.

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    DoubleHelix, The error message is: ""Photodrw.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I've been in touch with the Senior Vice President of Microsoft Office about this. There seems to be no way to work around the incompatibility. If anyone...

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    xgerryx -- Thanks for this information. Boy, that really leaves a person high and dry! I've got dozens of hours invested in images I designed with PhotoDraw 2000, and now can't use PhotoDraw any more with XP! Do you know if images created with PhotoDraw are editable with other image-editing...

    PhotoDraw compatible with Windows XP???

    I bought a new computer with Windows XP Home Edition on it and now find that I can't use Microsoft PhotoDraw (which came with my edition of Office 2000, and worked well with Windows 98SE). When I try to use PhotoDraw on the new computer, I get an error message before the program loads. I've...
