Hi,
This can happen if;
there are too many things starting on start up
or
You dont have enough RAM to properly function
or
you need to scandisk and defrag and havent done it in ages and/or had a couple of very bad incomplete boot ups.
Baby your computer till it loads windows. Run a scan disk ( it will reboot to do this)
and then defrag.
and then do it every week for good performance *s*

Thank you and good luck
(You can click start/help and type scan disk to find out how to do these things if you are unfamiliar with them)

Can i get corel photo paint 8 to work with windows 7


I know it won't work right with Windows Vista, forcing me to go back to Windows XP. Now with all the daily updates from Windows for XP, I am starting to have trouble with Photopaint 8 again. It is like 15 years old, but it was one of the best graphic editors out there. I wish they would just take what they had with PP8, and make a new version compatible with Windows 7. Seems like all the Corel upgrades to PP8 changed it completely and ruined it.

Keeps wanting to load fax & photo gallery when I log in


Things like to plant themselves in your start-up in windows. It is getting more obscene with software as the years go on.  Both XP and Vista have similar fixes for slow start-ups.  (In XP) Go to Start-->Run a box will pop up to type in a command, *In Vista, you can type "run" in the search box at the start menu* Type "msconfig" and a system configuration utility will pop up.  Click the tab that says "start-up" and un-check the software for your photo gallery and fax software.  *and any other non-needed programs for starting up your computer

My problem is with MS Photo Editor bundled with Office: I can no no longer run it in a ''normal'' sized window. When I use it to open a JPEG, it starts out minimized, and R-clicking on the taskbar icon and...


Try this:

Find the MS photo program on your hard drive (I believe, but am not sure, it is located here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Photo Editor.Exe Create a shortcut (right click on Photo Editor.exe and choose create shortcut) to the program. Then, after the shortcut is created, RIGHT click on the shortcut and click on properties. In the properties windows that pops up, find "run probram MAXIMIXED and make sure that is checked." then, click on OK a couple of times until you can see the "shortcut to photo editor.exe" shortcut. Double-click on that shortcut, which should start photo editor maximized.

Woo Hoo.

Now close photo editor.

Hopefully from this point on every time you open photo editor it will open maximized because you have just tweaked the registry to do so...

Take care,
Rob

Slow start...


Hello there...

Keep in mind this
1) OS ?
2) How you format your HD. FAT32? or NTFS? how many times?
perhaps you got a bad sector on your HD.
3) verify your CMOS, if you enable 32 enhance mode.
4) Check if you do a quick format? or regular format (takes long)
example: on C: Format C:
5) Antivirus you got? Norton 360? Avg? this could sometimes slow down a bit the systems, and resourses.
6) Memory problems? check
7) Your pagefile? on advance setting in SYSTEM, control panel. put in ( let windows decide...)
thats it
happy nice time

Nova Photo explosion Deluxe


Hi there, This fix worked for me and I was having the same problem. Hope it works for you. If you are on Windows XP, this can normally be resolved by setting the compatibility mode for Photo Explosion to Windows 98. You can do this by following these steps:

1) Click on the Start button.
2) Click on the My Computer. This should open a window titled My Computer.
3) Double-click on the C: drive.
4) If the information is hidden, there is normally an option to show the hidden files/folders. You will need to select this option.
5) Double-click on the Program Files folder.
6) If the information is hidden, there is normally an option to show the hidden files/folders. You will need to select this option.
7) Double-click on the Nova Development folder.
8) Double-click on the Photo Explosion folder.
9) Right-click on IPE40 icon, which looks like a camera.
10) Select the Properties option from the bottom of the pop-up menu.
11) Click on the Compatibility tab.
12) Put a check in the check-box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for".
13) From the drop-down list, chose "Windows 98 / Windows Me".
14) Click on the OK button.
15) Reboot your computer.

Problem with Panasonic Lumix TZ3 - Software


As long as the camera is working OK, don't worry too much - the software isn't essential - yours is obviously in japanese, so unless you can read jap, installing a font won't help!. When the camera is connected to windows XP, it is just a disc drive - you can see it through windows explorer, and if you open the folder DCIM you will find all the pictures you have taken. You can copy these to anywhere you want. Also, you can use any photo-editing software to open/edit your pix. As I also have an olympus camera I am actually using the olympus software to open/edit the pix on the lumix! For a free photo viewer/basic editor try irfanview from www.irfanview.com. For a really good editor paintshop pro is good, but there are many editor progs outthere both free and pay. Just google photo or image editor
