Updating All That Software You Install

I would just like to share a program that has been VERY beneficial for the past several years keeping all (well, much) of the software I install up to date. It is the Secunia Personal Software Inspector and can be downloaded at:

http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/

Secunia PSI installed on your home computer will constantly monitor many software programs, such as Adobe, Microsoft, Java, and many more and notify you of available updates or patches for the software. For many it will even provide the link to get there. On the new 2.0 version, you can also turn on an Auto-update feature which makes it even easier.

These updates are important because many times vulnerabilities are found in out-of-date software which can compromise your system.

Secunia starts everytime you boot and connect to the web and will provide a listing of available updates and also end-of-life programs which vendors have stopped supporting. (Time to upgrade for those ones.)

Try it out today.

If you do not want to install the software, try the Online Software Inspector at:

Both are FREE and well worth it!

Creatacard Gold Calender will not open


Hi there,
I have a solution for you that might solve your worry.
First of all, uninstall the program.
Then you will have to remove any trace of that software on your PC so please go to start and in the search box, type in REGEDIT
Then once it opens, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and proceed to search for your program and once found, right-click it and delete it..
After that, restart your PC and install the software once again. This will count as a new installation for you.
let me know if i can help more.

My scanner won't work. It keeps saying something


You most likely have ONLY installed the Printer side of the software... you ALSO need to install the "Scanner" part too. Go to the web site and get the FULL version for your software.

keep getting a code 1312x17x4252799284x and want install program.


I?m not sure if you?re fault code is showing on the computer, Easy Share Software, or the camera itself. Therefor I will list 2 possible solutions: If the fault message is on the LCD on the camera: There is no firmware available online for this camera model. Therefor you do need to set up a "repair" with KODAK directly. An Out of Warranty repair for this model for this fault is about 88 pounds + shipping. KODAK also offers a Trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price. In order to arrange your repair/Trade up: Contact KODAK: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=14563&pq-locale=en_US&_requestid=3490 If you're experiencing this fault code on the computer: Please do a Clean Install on the Easy Share Software: Please follow the instructions: Uninstall Easy Share software: Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs. For Windows XP operating systems, select Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs. Select Kodak Easy Share software. Select Remove (or select Change, and then select Remove). Run the Clear utility: Visit the CLEAR Utility for Kodak Easy Share software Web page at www.kodak.com/go/clear Click the Download button, and then follow the on-screen prompts. After restarting your computer, visit the Kodak Easy Share software Web page at www.kodak.com/go/easysharesw and install the latest version of Easy Share software.
