Margin setting in ''Setup'' in the File menu doesnt change

After typing a doc in Word, I notice that halfway down the page it jumps to a new page. Whilst trying to set the margin using SETUP in the File menu a dialogue box with the message ''one or more margins are set outside the printable area of the page. Choose the ''fix'' button to increase the appropriate margins.'' After choosing ''fix'', the bottom of the page margin reads 7.41'' and I cannot change it. Pls help!!!

Clear Windows Paging File At Shutdown


You may not consider clearing the windows paging file as a necessary part of your security housekeeping. Ok it can add quite a few seconds to your final shutdown time, but it doesn't need to be done on a regular basis and you can always disable the option as and when you want.
But why clear the paging file you may ask. Well the simple answer is security. It is not unknown for a third party software application to temporarily store unencrypted information such as passwords or other sensitive material in memory. Obviously the way Windows uses virtual memory it is possible for this information to end up in the paging file.
There are two ways of clearing the paging file. On involves Group Policy and the other the Windows registry. If Group Policy is not available on your version of Vista then proceed to Method Two.
Method One
1/ Click Start button and in the Search dialogue box type:
gpedit.msc.
2/ When in group policy window proceed as follows:
3/ Click the > button next to Computer Configuration. This will expand the menu
4/ Click the > next to the Windows settings option. Again the menu will expand
5/ Next click the > next to Security settings. The menu will expand again
6/ Now click the > next to Local Policies. The menu will expand again
7/ Now click on the Security Options
8/ The right hand pane of group policies will fill with options
9/ Scroll down to 'Shutdowns; Clear virtual memory page file'
10/ Now right click on this option and, from the menu that appears select Properties
11/ In properties click on the radio button marked 'Enabled'
12/ Now click OK
13/ Finally close group policies
Method Two: The second method can be followed using registry settings as

1/ Click Start button, followed by All Programs, Accessories and then Click the Run option.
2/ In the Run dialog box type: Regedit
3/ User Account Control (UAC) will ask permission to open Regedit. If you are the administrator, then Click the Continue button. If you are not the administrator, then you will need to ask the administrator for the administrator credentials
4/In the Registry Editor Window navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management.
5/ In the list that appears on the right of the Registry window look for the Value Name: ClearPageFileAtShutdown
6/ If the Value does not exist Right Click on the Memory Managment key and, from the drop down menu select New
7/ When you click New another drop down menu will appear. Click DWORD Value
8/ You should now see a box with the words New Value#1.
9/ Right click on this box and select Rename
10/ In the rename box Type: ClearPageFileAtShutdown
11/ After you have renamed the value, right click on it again and select Modify
12/ Change the Value to 1
13/ The registry entry should now look like this: ClearPageFileAtShutdown REG_WORD 0x00000001 (1)
14/ The changes will not come into effect until you have restarted your computer
15/ To disable the feature just reset the Value to 0

How do I reset the password on the windows 7 home page


Windows has a built-in security system that requires a user to type in a password to get to his personal account.
Only an "Administrator" account holder can make software changes to the computer.
All other users, including Guest users, need the permission of an Administrator to make any system changes.
However, if you have a guest account and need to access the Administrator account to make changes, you can do so via the Command Prompt feature.
Log in to your Guest account in Windows.
Go to "Start" > "Search" and type in "windows/system32/cmd.exe" to find the Command Prompt feature.
When the file appears on the search menu, drag it to your desktop.
Leave the search window open.

Right-click the cmd.exe file on your desktop and choose "Rename."
Type "sethc.exe" for the new name and click on an empty area next to the file name to save the new name.
Right-click on the "sethc.exe" file and click on "Copy."
Go back to the open "windows/system32" folder and right-click anywhere in the folder.
Select "Paste" to put the "sethc.exe" file inside.
Choose "Yes" when asked if you want to overwrite the current file.
Go to "Start" > "Log Off." It will bring you back to the User Account menu.
Press the "Shift" key 5 times in a row.
The Command Prompt will open.
Type "net user administrator [password]" and insert a new password in the [password] section.
Press "Enter" to set your new password.
It will bring you back to the User Accounts menu.
Click on the Administrator User Account and type the password you just set to log in to the account.

Windows xp stops loading and goes to disk scan. Disk scan does not find any error on the drive and restarts booting xp, which stops at the same point and goes to scan again...


First you need to disable the page file:
  1. Open Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System.
  2. In the left "Tasks", click on Advanced System Settings.
  3. You should come to "Advanced" tab. In "Performance" section, click on Settings button.
  4. Click on Advanced tab.
  5. In the "Virtual Memory" section, click on Change button.
  6. By default, "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" setting is selected so that Windows can manage the paging file without user's interruption. Uncheck the check box of Automatically manage paging file size for all drives.
  7. Select and highlight the appropriate drive that users want to change the paging file settings under the box of "Drive [Volume Label]".Select "No Page File"
  8. Restart the system
Next do the following:
  1. Click on your start menu and open the run dialog.
  2. Type "cmd" and return (note: dont enter quotes)
  3. Next type "fsutil dirty query e:"
  4. If the return message indicates that the volume is dirty go to step 5
  5. Next type "chkdsk e: /f /x"
  6. After that finshes repeat step 3.
  7. If it is no longer dirty then reboot and you should notice no more ckdisk.

You have to change the file associations for them to open with Print Shop. Select any Print Shop document, right click and select Get Info. Under the section Open with, there is a dropdown menu that shows the programs that open that file type. Simply select Print Shop and click Change All... button. Click Continue at the prompt and Print Shop should open all those file types.

All words file are automatically open in powerpoint or unable to read


You need to make sure that the file type is set to open as a *.doc (Office 97 - 2003) or *.docx (Office 2007) Open up your 'My Documents' folder and then go to 'Tools' then 'Folder Options', then click on the 'File Type' tab. Scroll down until you see the file extentions for Word ( DOC or DOCX). When you click on them, you will be able to change what they open with.
