The only reference I find is that you may have a duplicate filter. Check the filters and delete the duplicate on.
Also, to create a reliable database, I would use Excel or OOpenOffice, which has a spreadsheet program compatible to Excel.

Download and install the free, open source OpenOffice.org office suite (www.openoffice.org)-- it include a spreadsheet compatible with Excel spreadsheets (along with a good, MS Word compatible word processor, and a good MS PowerPoint-compatible presentation program).

Good Luck,
Joe

How to Load or Reload"HP Digitalmedia archive" file and 'EZARC.msi to my HP Pavilion a1520n desktop. (XP)


Try this one:
This document pertains to HP and Compaq Desktop PCs with Windows 7, Vista, and XP. An error appears that contains a filename ending with MSI. (MSI refers to the Windows Installer.) This error can appear while Windows is starting up or when a particular software program is opened. This error might appear after using a Registry Cleaner or Registry Fix tool.
See the following error examples. Your error might be slightly different, but it has a filename that refers to or ends with MSI.
The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'TrayApp.msi' in the box below.
'HPProductAssistant' the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available.

  • HP application recovery process (Windows XP)
  • If errors persist, you can clean up the MSI registry entries by using Microsoft's automated solution. For more information, see Fix problems with programs that can't be installed or uninstalled (in English).
    Preventing MSI errors To prevent these errors from occurring, make sure that registry cleaning and spyware removal utilities do not remove files and registry entries associated with your software. Instead, if you no longer use a particular software title and want to remove all references from the registry, remove the software by using the Add or Remove Programs tool in Control Panel. The software uninstaller will remove the associated entries from the registry.
    Some products available for free on the Internet suggest that the registry needs regular maintenance or cleaning. However, use extreme caution when installing and using a registry cleaner. Many registry cleaners generate other MSI errors because they do not recognize valid registry entries and delete them. This can cause more MSI errors and prevent other programs from working.
    If you do decide to install a registry cleaner, be sure to research the product thoroughly, and then download and install programs only from software publishers that you trust .

    Tip

    Quick Fix for most FAKE Anti-Virus infections.


    Note: Get a pad of paper as you will need to write down a few file names.

    1. Identify the fake Anti-Virus program.
    This is simple just look at the name and icon of the program claiming to be an anti-virus. This should not be hard because they are constantly informing you of fake infections and automatically running scans. After you know which program is bothering you click the start menu or if you can access your desktop find the fake AV programs icon. Once you find the icon on your start menu or desktop right-click and go to properties. Now write down the name .exe file.

    2. Deleting the virus
    First of all restart your computer in safe-mode. You can do this by either restarting your computer and repeatedly pressing the F8 key until the safe mode screen appears. Or you can click start menu>run type msconfig and hit enter. Click the BOOT.INI tab then put a check next to /SAFEBOOT. Click Ok and then Restart. Once your computer is in safe-mode click START>RUN. Type regedit and hit enter. Press Ctrl+F so that we can search for the fake AV. Remember that file name you wrote down earlier type that into the find box and hit enter. Right click on and delete any registry entries associates with that file. This will prevent the fake AV from trying to run the next time you start your computer. After you have found every entry tied to that filename type in the actual name of the fake AV ex. Anti-Virus 2009. Do the same thing as you did with the filename delete any and all entries associated with the name of that AV.
    After this is completed close the registry. Click START>RUN type msconfig. Go to both the Startup tab and the Services tab and look for any entries that have the name of the fake av program or the filename you wrote down. Un-check any you find. Now close the configuration panel. Click START>SEARCH>FOR FILES OR FOLDERS... type in the name of the file you wrote down and hit enter delete any of the files you find with that name. Also if any of the files are in a folder named what the AV is delete those entire folders. DONT delete your system32 folder or anyfolder found in your C:\Windows directory unless you know for 100% that its only contents are files associated with fake AntiVirus Program. If you are unable to delete the file ex. it gives you an error message saying its already running restart your computer again in safe mode and try deleting it again. After that is complete and you booted your computer in safe mode using the msconfig method click START>RUN type msconfig goto the BOOT.INI tab and un-check /SAFEBOOT if not just restart your computer.

    After those steps are completed the fake Anti-Virus program should not be bothering you anymore. Remember this is only a quick fix so that you can at least use your computer to run an anti-spyware\malware\virus program and this is highly recommended as its likely you have more infections.

    I am trying to delete names out of the pop up boxes when tryimg to long onto yahoo , facebook, people that have used the computer and just scroll to their name and click and it will go to your username in...


    Actually, it depends on what internet browser you are using.

    For Firefox:
    Using the Up or Down keys on your keyboard, or moving your mouse cursor above an auto-complete entry "selects" it. To delete this entry and permanently remove it from Firefox's internal auto-complete database, hit Delete (Del), and the entry is gone.
    **To remove multiple auto-complete entries from Firefox, keep your mouse cursor above the first or second, and repeatedly hit the Delete key.

    It is almost the same thing with Internet Explorer:

    Launch Internet Explorer. Browse to the website for which Internet Explorer is saving the undesired AutoComplete entry. Click in the box on that website where the username would be entered. A drop-down list containing your user name should appear. If it does not, type the first few letters of the user name until you can see your user name on the drop-down list.
    Press the down arrow key on the keyboard until the username that you would like to delete the AutoComplete entry for is highlighted.

    Press the "Delete" key. A message will appear asking if you are sure that you want to delete that AutoComplete entry. Click "Yes" to confirm.

    How to entry bios lenovo pc.


    Hello,

    Press F1 immediately after powering on the computer.

    Older IBM computers (including some laptops) may utilize the F2 key for BIOS entry.

    Alternately, if these don't work, Delete is a very common key to enter BIOS for many computers.
