How do I stop Lotus from opening at the top of browser went I start my PC.


Take it out of your startup menu. Google "Ccleaner" short for c$ap cleaner, and download it. FREE. Very good cleaning program, and on the left column is where you will find the tab for Startup tweaking. Be careful, some things need to start, just disable what you know, and if you don't normally use it, disable it, it just shows your computer down if things are open and running in the background

Why do i have to change my paswort all the time?


You might have it set to change at certain intervals
IE: at log in or after each restart .......

Disable password log in
On both PC and Mac computers, you can set up your system to automatically log in to a certain user account.
As a result, this setting will allow you to bypass the password login that is typically required.
You should only enable automatic login on your computer if it cannot be easily accessed by other people.

Open the Start menu and click on "Run."
Type "control userpasswords2" (no quote marks) into the dialog box and press the Enter key.

Uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a username and password" and click on the "Apply" button.

Enter the username of the account you want to automatically log in with and then type that account's password twice to finish setting up automatic login.

Click "OK." Password login has now been disabled.
Mac Instructions

Open System Preferences by clicking on the Dock icon.

Go to the "Accounts" control panel under the "System" heading.

Click on the "Login Options" button at the bottom of the window.

Select the account that you want to automatically log in with from the "Automatic login" drop-down menu.
Password login has now been disabled.

Depending on what operating system you have, there are several steps you must take in order to disable the administrator account and password on your computer.
Most often, the administrator account and password are disabled in order to minimize security risks on your computer.
This account is often the target of attack if your system is compromised, as it allows access to all of the data and programs on the computer.

In order to disable the administrator account and password, follow the steps below that are outlined for the major operating systems.

If you are using Windows XP, you must be logged on as the administrator in order to disable the account settings.
Microsoft suggests that you set up another account with administrator permissions in the event that you may need to reverse this process.
Otherwise, you won't be able to.
Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select manage.
Click Users under Local Users and Groups in the left pane, which will bring up all users on the computer.
Double-click Administrator and on the General tab, check Account is disabled.
This will disable the Administrator account and password for Windows XP users.
In Windows 2000, go to Start, select Programs and go to Administrative Tools.
Click on Local Security Policy.
Next, click on User Rights Assignment under the Local Policies option in the left panel.
Double-click Deny access to this computer from the network and then click Add under Local Security Policy Setting.
Click Administrator account under Users and Groups, then click Add.
Click OK to complete the disabling of the Administrator account and password.

In Windows Vista, the Administrator account is automatically disabled.
However, if you have enabled it, you will need to open a command prompt.
Go to Start Menu, click All Programs, select Accessories and right-click on Command Prompt and click run as Administrator.
Open the command box and type net user administrator/active:no. Press enter and you should receive a prompt stating the command was completed successfully.

If you are running a Mac, the Administrator account is enabled by default.
To disable the account and password, go to the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
Choose Accounts from the View menu and click the lock to authenticate with the administrator account password.
Click login options, click edit, and after clicking the lock in the Directory Utility window, click Disable Root User from the Edit menu.

My nuvi 200 is 3 years old suddenly speaking in what sounds like German instead of English. I have tried to reset but no joy


1. To select an English speaking voice
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the bottom right corner of the page showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (Top left icon)
  • Press LANGUAGE
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select an English speaking voice.

2. Since it changed itself it's possible that the English voice file is corrupted and may need to be replaced. To replace a voice file you first need to;

  • Download and install the latest version of WEBUPDATER to your computer from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Connect your satnav to the computer and run the Webupdater program
  • Webupdater will search for updates to your satnav operating system. Accept any updates it finds and they will be installed. When the update is complete it will offer you optional updates including VOICE FILES.
  • Tick the English speaking voice files you want to select them and click "continue" or "next" They will be downloaded to your satnav.
  • You then need to repeat the process described in paragraph 1 above to select an English speaking voice.

I cant seem to get turn by turn street anouncement on my garmin 1310 is there something i need to do on my menu. many thanks


Press TOOLS ( the spanner symbol on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol)
Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
Press VOICE. Select a voice from an English speaking country that ends in TTS. The TTS letters stand for "Text to Speech" and indicates that this voice will name the streets. Some of the voices are more basic and are unable to.

If you don't have a TTS voice on the satnav you can download them. Install WEBUPDATER on your computer from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
When it's installed connect your satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead and run the WEBUPDATER program. The program will look for updates to your satnav software. Install the updates and when it's finished it will look for optional updates includingn Voices. Select only English speaking voices with tts added to the end of the names and download them.

When the download is complete and you've disconnected your satnav from the computer you'll need to select a tts voice as described in the first paragraph above.

My vizio tv is practically brand new as of christmas, when a movie or even tv is on the voices are very soft and the music or background noises are EXTREMELY loud, so I am always turning the volume up and...


I had this problem with my previous TV (Syntax by Olevia, an off brand). It only happened to me on certain channels, and for certain shows. What is happening is the TV station is broadcasting the audio in Dolby 5.1 format. For some stupid reason, the TV is playing the background speakers (effects) instead of the speaking parts. You get a little bleed-over of the voices into the back speakers, so voices are there but really quiet. Unfortunately my TV didn't have any surround sound options to fix this.

See if your TV has a surround sound option. Otherwise, you will need to connect the TV sound output to a surround sound system that can properly decode the audio channels.

It has stopped speaking. Everything else works fine. We have checked that the voice is definitely switched on. It's a TomTom about 4 years old.


the spoken direction mode only works when you have selected the "computer voice" option. If you have changed the voice in the settings, spoken direction will be disabled. Also, in the settings, there is an option to switch off the speaker. Make sure you have not done this. Finally, tap the bottom left hand side of the screen and move the slider bar to the right to increase volume.
I hope one of these hints helps

Werfault.exe -application error\r\n


You can try to disable this service by following the below steps:
Step 1: Open your computer's Control Panel by selecting "Start" > "Control Panel" from your computer's Start menu.
Step 2: Choose the "System and Maintenance" > "Problem Reports" menu option from the Control Panel menu.
Step 3: Select "Change Settings" > "Advanced Settings" from the Problem Reports program menu and turn off the automatic problem reporting feature in Windows.
Step 4: Exit the Problem Reporting application by selecting "File" > "Exit" from the File menu. Werfault.exe will now only run on your computer in the event of a catastrophic application problem.

If disabling the application does not work, y
ou should keep in mind that many malware programs can show up on your system as seemingly legitimate files by using file names that are very similar to those of legitimate files. Whenever you are in doubt about a particular file, always scan your system for viruses.

  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
