    Do I need MSN Narrowband Unlimited Access?

    Well, I found the answer to my question. I should have thought of this earlier. I simply called MSN and asked. Not that it was easy to get an answer, but I did find out that my $190.00 per year was indeed allowing me to have dial-up if I ever wanted to use it, though I never have. It also...

    Do I need MSN Narrowband Unlimited Access?

    Good questions. The email seems genuine. No links, but instructions to go to MSN site and pull up my account, etc. But I notice that I apparently paid $190 each year from 1999 to 2004. I don't see where I paid in 2005. But I take it I have been taken. So I guess I'll cancel it rather...

    Do I need MSN Narrowband Unlimited Access?

    Hotmail is free. Ignore the email unless you want to change ISPs __________________ Sadly, there are no integers on this scale, so your gangly adolescent attempt to be clever has proved futile I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off...

    Do I need MSN Narrowband Unlimited Access?

    I have received email from Microsoft telling me that MSN Narrowband Unlimited Access will be automatically renewed soon for $190.00. I have an MSN email account. I connect with BellSouth DSL, but use MSN's email (which is actually Hotmail), downloading it into my Outlook Express. I tried...

    AutoText crashes Word97 in WindowsXP

    Your idea worked! So far, there has been no crash. Earlier I had thought about paste special, but wasn't given the option, and had forgotten about that idea. I don't remember what I was doing at that time. Thank you for your help. Donation on its way.

    AutoText crashes Word97 in WindowsXP

    Experiment: Paint. Create image (scribble). Select. Copy. Word97. New document. Paste. Select. Format/picture: Uncheck float over text. Select. Insert/autotext/autotext: Assign 3 letters. No problem. Word97. Existing document with initials (bit map). Select initials. Copy...

    AutoText crashes Word97 in WindowsXP

    I have a bunch of macros and one autotext bitmap. The autotext bitmap remained but the macros disappeared. I have re-renamed normal.dot back to itself, and the macros and autotext are now there. I am hesitant to upload the bitmap of my initials. If I were to do so, how would I do it?

    AutoText crashes Word97 in WindowsXP

    Another observation: I can put as many of these bitmap initials as I want in the document, as long as I don't save twice after two of them have been put in, BUT, if I remove them before those saves, the document doesn't crash. So what crashes the document is two saves while at least two of...

    AutoText crashes Word97 in WindowsXP

    The above two messages crossed. I don't exactly know what you mean. It seems to me that I will need to start all over and re-record the macros. On the other hand, all of them are listed under Tools/Macro/Macros, and it says they are in all active templates and documents. So why won't they...

    AutoText crashes Word97 in WindowsXP

    I renamed Normal.dot and then moved my autocorrect from NormalOld.dot to Normal.dot, and tried again, but the problem remained.

    Epson LQ-590 dot matrix won't let Word97 change page length.

    For years I did something on my w98, using Word97, with my Epson LQ-570+ dot matrix printer. I have tried the same thing on my wxp, using Word97, with my new Epson LQ-590. It won't work. Epson says it is a problem with Word97, of course. I got the LQ-590 because my 570+ was old and...

    Trouble with Quicken

    It was q97 originally, and I found the cd for it, as well as the cd for the q98 upgrade (that fixed y2k). SO, I uninstalled q2005 and was able to install q97, and then to upgrade to q98. Then it could read the data on my floppies. Then I installed q2005, which retained the data. SO, I...

    Putting w98 hd into wxp as a slave. How?

    I have given up on this project because I was able to get my data off the w98 and off floppies. My wxp is hp a220n. I wasn't able to find any power connector that looked right. And I wouldn't have been able to stretch the power from the w98 to the hd while it was in the wxp.
