Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Need to get rid of an object on my WindowsXP desktop - activeX?

In attempting to copy a link to a web site onto my desktop, I inadvertantly copied an object that looks just like the web page itself. I doesn't have any controls on its frame, however (no "blue bar" at the top, or "X" in the upper right to close it). And it doesn't appear as a file when I "explore" to the desktop folder.

Any ideas about how to make it go away?

Try clicking on the object icon with the right button of the mouse and chosing delete. Try also restarting the computer to see if the object disappears.

If it is not copy protected download hand break, http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php and follow the directions on the site on how to use it. If it is copy protected you can use a program called DVDFab, it has a trial that does not limit you but locks after 30 days.

Flashing X on TomTom but cant get it off on spotlight on my mac!


Make a full backup onto your computer making sure all files are shown. Do not use tt home. Make sure you have a copy of your map in your backup. Do not format. Delete everything on your tt. Connect to tt home and tt home will reinstall the navcore for your device. Copy and paste your map from your backup onto your tt. You should be set to go. A reminder you will lose all your preferances and favorites when you do this.

What is the difference between deep copy and shallow copy


A deep copy makes a completely new independent copy of an object, including copies of any other objects it references. In a shallow copy, only references to other objects are copied, so the copy and the original may both reference the same object. The copy is not a completely separate duplicate. Google "deep copy vs shallow copy" for the language you're using. There are a lot of websites you can visit for information and examples.
