Using your toolbar preferences you can move them back to the bottom and then click the lock taskbar option to prevent this from happening again. You can access this by right mouse clicking on the taskbar then select properties. Hope this helps.

How to clear my recent documents history?


Hi !
Well 'PRIVACY' is something very important for many of us. After using your laptop or PC, you don't want others to view what you have done etc as it may contain confidential materials.
This will depend on your Operating System e.g Windows XP, Vista or 7.
How to:
Right-click 'start' or 'windows' icon on the lower left of your desktop. Go to properties, start menu/ uncheck list my recent files etc...Apply changes!
For Xp you need to click 'advanced'

On my laptop the touchpad works while the clicking thingy doesnt


Without knowing any specifics (brand, model, etc), I'll have to ask questions. Have you recently installed any software? Installed a new O.S.? Driver updates?

If you haven't changed or created anything important lately, try restoring it to an earlier date. Roll back the drivers, or uninstall and reinstall the component in the device manager (XP: Start Menu > Right click Computer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manger. Win7/Vista: Start Menu > type Device Manager in the search bar.) Search for something along the lines of "HID" (Human interface Devices) or "Peripherals". Right click then either uninstall or properties > roll back drivers. If neither of those options work, you may just have broken it physically somehow (I.E. Dropping it, pressing too hard, or even spilling liquid inside).

I am getting a message "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting"on my laptop. Also the screen is black and no icons and start menu and shortcut icons are not visible on the screen. Please help me...


Windows validation software (Be it Windows XP to Windows 7) has deemed that the Validation Key (VLK) that was used to install your operating system was not legally obtained. If you think this is in error, you can use the Windows Genuine Validation site to check this. Just click on the Validate Windows button and follow the instructions.

Because the validation software has currently decided that your VLK is invalid, it has disabled many desktop features to make itself more evident. This is why the screen is black, no icons, update doesn't work etc etc.

If the the Windows Validation site determines that the VLK is indeed invalid then you have two options to re-validate Windows. One is legal, the other is NOT.

The easiest and legal method implies purchasing a valid windows license key. Simply follow the instructions from this page.

The harder, potentially frustrating, not recommended and certainly illegal method is detailed at these pages.

Lenova notebook will not stay connected with att wireless card


Hi. I think I have an Idea on what's the problem with your machine. There is this software that lenovo installs on almost all lenovo laptop machines that is called Lenovo Readycomm, this software is for the wireless network, you can use this to manage you wireless network but somehow this software sometime has a conflict on some opertaing system like vista and windows 7. So you just need to uninstall this software and restart your computer afterwards. To uninstall the Lenovo Readycomm go to control panel and make sure that its on classic view to see all the icons on the control panel, then look for Programs and Features Icon on the control panel, from there look for the Lenovo readycomm software and uninstall it. Here's the other way click start then type on the start search box appwiz.cpl then press enter. It should show you the Programs and Features Window then look for Lenovo Readycomm and uninstall it and restart your computer. Hope this helps

Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi


try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.
