    Playing movies in browser

    I reformatted my PC this weekend, and now when I try to play .wmv files in my browser, they will not play. I am running XP Pro (SP2), fully updated, IE and Avant browsers, and have winamp, WMP, quicktime alternative, real player alternative. I have never encountered this problem after other...

    Lost My Computer Icon

    I was able to get the My Computer icon to show up on the desktop, but I had to change my start menu from classic back to the original. When I tried to use the classic start menu, it disappears again. Will I have to stick with the default start menu, or can I still use the classic menu. There...

    Lost My Computer Icon

    I am not sure what happened, but I have lost my My Computer icon. I was able to create a shortcut to it, so I can still access my drives, but I am unable to perform any of the normal right click tasks that right clicking on My Computer allwed me to do. Is there any way to get back the original?

    No, I haven't seen (thank god) anything like that. I had not even heard of it until you posted that link.

    Black Ice Firewall

    My version was one that was affected by that worm. I did an update and now all is well, I am able to have people connect to my FTP with no problems. Thanks a million

    Black Ice Firewall

    I am having a problem with my firewall. When I try to have people connect to my FTP, they are unable. What I thought would fix this, is was grabbing their IP from them and telling my firewall to allow all traffic from that IP through, but it did not really work. 1 out of the 5 people I did...

    CD-RWs will not burn

    we were able to get it to work. It just did not like reformatting a disc that had been formatted with Easy CD Creator on the ME box. Also, he has an WIN 98 drive that he needs to take files off of. Can he plug it into the XP box and get them, or will he have to hook it up to the WinME...

    CD-RWs will not burn

    I finally came home to inspect the problem with these drives. I was able to take a brand new cd-rw and write to it. Could he hvae had this problem because he was using discs first formatted on Win98ME?

    CD-RWs will not burn

    Just a quick follow up: My father left me a message saying that when he booted up the computer, it starts up and goes right into the bios settings without him prompting it to do so. He said this is the second time this has happened.

    CD-RWs will not burn

    This is the CD-RW drive that he has in his machine. We are not using the Nero Express that came with the drive (said above, Nero 6 is being used). http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=542968&Sku=A451-2024%20P&CatId=477

    CD-RWs will not burn

    I will pass that along to him, but I am thinking that it will not make a difference. I was able to have the good rom read cds that I put into it, and that should mean that everything is ok as far as the configuration is concerned.

    CD-RWs will not burn

    Last sunday I build a system for my father (XP 2600, ASUS board, 5200FX, 512 PC2700, 80 GB, pair of CD-RWs). He just emailed me to tell me that he cannot write to either of the drives. I have one of the roms as the primary master, and the other is the only drive on the secondary cable. He is...

    Outlook Express

    Last night I set up Outlook Express to sync with my campus email account. Apparently I have done something wrong. Everytime I try to send an email, I get the following error: The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's e-mail address. The sender's e-mail address...
