Try updating or reinstalling your flash player. If that doesn't work, try using a new browser.

Message saying alps pointing devive has stopped working, can still move mouse pointer but cant use the scroll function


A possible fix for the Alps problem Your Alps pointer problem is probably driver related. To fix it:
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Right click on Computer & choose properties
3. Open Device Manager (Admin password may be required)
4. Under Mice & other pointing devices, right click Alps pointing-device & choose Update driver software
5. Choose Search automatically & it will download and install the latest signed driver from the windows repositories & hopefully that will fix that problem.

Quickbooks pro 2005


I got this solution off the official site forums. This worked for me hope it does the same for you guys.

"Thanks for the post. Let me start by apologizing for this. We had sent out a message concerning IE7 and QuickBooks. What is going on is a dialog box is trying to load, but it is not loading completely. Windows is waiting for a response from this dialog box, that can't be seen. What we should be able to do to work around this for now is to press Alt-F4 at the same time. This should force this window that has not loaded correctly to close. Now we should be able to work in QuickBooks without any trouble. If this does not work we may want to hold the CTRL key down while double clicking on the QuickBooks Icon. The first solution I have seen not work only once."
