    i do not have "load pictures " as an option,but everything is enabled in multimedia

  • bluebird23de Feb 12, 2009

    i only noticed the problem recently when i got a my space page and also recently tried to use stationery in windows mail.i heard maybe the cache needs to change bit i have no idea what that means or how to do it. unless it means deleting internet files,history,etc.

  • bluebird23de Feb 12, 2009

    ok, my stationery is a html document only. when i open it the page is blank. so how do i convert this to jpeg or some type of picture file?

  • bluebird23de Feb 12, 2009

    ok, i checked,show hidden folders and the folder properties say "unavailable" at the top. it does not show it as hidden

  • bluebird23de Feb 12, 2009

    even if i use wizard to create stationery, it seems to be going along fine,but when i go to view what i have selected i only see code,no pictures,the same as mail stationery. i must have a setting wrong somewhere or else,the stationery pictures that were already in my computer file when i bought it, were only included as a file,not a jpeg or tif. i am totally confused by this.

  • bluebird23de Feb 12, 2009

    re wizard stationery setup- i cannot view the jpeg in preview but when i change fonts,i can see that in the preview pane. the photos do not show in the preview pane. that is the only thing that will not show. if i change the color,i cannot see that either.

  • bluebird23de Feb 13, 2009

    found the problem-my chosen background theme was over-riding any other background. as soon as i put the background back to windows,i could see the stationery and send it,however, not all my mail r

    ecipients could see it. i guess it depends on the mail server. PROBLEM SOLVED THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP

Uploads, or downloads? What are you trying to do?

If you are talking about viewing images using Internet Explorer, check the Internet options.
Select < Tools>, <Internet Options>, select [Advanced] tab, then scroll down the checkbox list to "multimedia" and make sure the {load pictures} box is checked.

    When did this problem start? Did you install any software or updates recently? Is there anything that has changed between when it was working and now?

    As this seems difficult to pinpoint what is causing the pictures to not show, I would suggest uninstalling stationary for windows mail, to see if that fixes the problem with IE. If not then we know its not that program. Creating a myspace page should have had little to no effect on your system, but we can't rule that out.

    Browser helper objects may have been installed from active x content and such that could cause issues.

    If uninstalling stationary doesn't help at all, I would roll back the system to the last known good state via the backup and restore center in control panel, system maintenance.

    "Use system restore to fix problems and undo changes to windows"

    This will not affect your documents folders. And once it is finished you can check to see if everything is working normally. Once it is reinstall stationary and see if the same problem occurs. If so then we know what the culprit is and can try work out why. I have read of issues and errors from other users with stationary for windows mail.

    Please post back your results.

    ok, I think you should check out this link. I think I understand what your problem is and all should be answered if you follow this tutorial.

    So what you are saying is when you double click a file to view it, you see code, such as ascii or hex? Sounds like you have miss set the way you handle viewing files. Go to control panel, default programs, associate a file type or protocol with a program. Wait for it to load, the scroll through the extensions list. .jpg should tell you what program it is using to open it on the right. if it is anything other than a picture or photo viewing software then click change and follow recommendations to choose a correct viewer. I Hope this helps. I'm still trying to understand your problem from your description.

    Glad you worked it out, I would never have guessed that was your problem from the description. :)

TROUBLESHOOTING; TWITTER,When I try to RT (Copy/paste) the text shows up, but no picture! HELP

I am not a user of Twitter and most social networking sites but have a high level of knowledge about internet functions. In most cases when it comes to copy/paste function images a lot of the time are not allowed to be pasted as part of text since they are not text. Sometimes when you copy text and image together the copy function strips everything down to text which in the case of an image is not possible. You might see sometimes once you paste that the file name is there but not the image itself and most other times you only get the text. The image in the text has a place holder but that place holder is not copied. As for twitter I would assume that you might have to attach the image file using their file attachment function after you paste the text.

My pics are on comcast email, like to up load to twitter.

First, you will need to download the pictures from your email account. There are several ways to do this. You can right click on the image or file name in your email account and select "Save Download Target", or you can open the image in your browser, the Select the "File" tab from the menu and go to save as. Either way, you will get to the same save dialog, where you can save the image to your computer. Remember where they are saved!
Now, twitter doesn't allow uploads, but sites like twitpic and yfrog both allow you to upload images and send out tweets about the image from their websites. Chose one of the websites (you should be able to sign into either with your twitter account) and follow their instructions to upload.
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask!

How do i upload pics on my computer to facebook


First, login to your facebook account. Next, click on the profile link at the upper right corner of your screen (You would see there Home, Profile, and account). Once on your profile page, there should be a tab named Photos (beside the wall tab and info tab), click on it. Once on that page, click on the create photo album button on the upper right corner of the tab. On the next page, you would be asked to create a photo album as well as select the photos (select the drive and location where your pictures are saved and click on the thumbnails of images to mark it for uploading) that you want to upload. after selecting the pictures and images, just click on the create album and then just wait for a couple of minutes while facebook uploads your photos. You would receive a confirmation whether you want to share it or not as proof that the images were succesfully loaded.

hope this helps

E-mail pictures/photos

Mail providers usually restrict images to be automatically displayed in order to protect your privacy. When someone send you an email with image and when you viewed that image it is possible to the sender know that you have read/view the mail. Who knows Who send you what!

IF you want to view image, on the upper side you should see "Display images below....." or may be similar words

Problem Uploading Photos to Craigslist

Hi kdnew,

Try a simple reboot to start . send yourself an image in email(this requires an alternate email)if this goes through it confirms you can send images over the internet. Also, try resizing your images in a photo editor, the system could be detecting images too large to upload.

Creating RIS images
As we have seen, CD-based RIS images can be created throug= h the RISetup utility. Additionally, there is RIPrep.exe, a utility that allows an administrator to clone a standard corporate desktop for deployment to other systems. In this section, we will examine the RIPrep utility, and also learn about creating RIS boot disks for compatible network adapters.
Unlike RISetup, which only allows an administrator to depl= oy a CD-based setup of Windows 2000 Professional (even a network-based installat= ion is just a copy of the files from the CD shared on a network drive), RIPrep = can be used to deploy the operating system plus customized settings and even locally installed desktop applications. This process is not the true disk cloning that products like Norton Ghost provide, as it can only be used with Windows 2000 Professional. Additionally, RIPrep does not support multiple h= ard drives or multiple partitions on the computer that the image is being creat= ed on.
Other limitations of RIPrep include the requirement that a CD-based image that is the same version and language as the RIPrep image also exist on the RIS server, and that the target system must have the same hardware abstraction layer (HAL) as the system us= ed to create the image. By having the same HAL, that means that an image created on a single processor system cannot be installed onto a dual processor system. Since Windows 2000 does not support Alpha processors like NT 4.0, you won't have to worry about mixing up Intel (I386) and Alpha images.
While there are limitations to RIPrep, there are advantage= s to it over using RISetup to create images. Most notably, RIPrep allows an administrator to create a standard desktop image and then use RIS to deploy= it to new computers as they come in from an OEM. Additionally, reinstallation = of the operating system is much faster from an RIPrep image since the image is being applied as a copy operation to the target hard drive and not running though an actually Windows 2000 installation as would happen with a CD or <= span class=3DGramE>network-based RISetup image.
Creating images with RIPrep
Creating an image with RIPrep is a two-step process. First= , you install and configure a computer with Windows 2000 Professional and the specific applications and settings you want to include in the image. Second, you run RIPrep.exe from the RIS server. There is an important distinction to keep clear. The RIPrep.exe utility is located on the RIS server, but is = executed from the RIS client that the image is being created on. From the client, cl= ick Start->Run and type:
If you attempt to run RIPrep.exe from a non-Windows 2000 Professional system, you receive an error message stating that the utility = will only run on Windows 2000 Professional. When you do, however, run RIPrep fro= m a valid system, the Remote Installation Preparation Wizard starts as shown in figure 13.13.
Figure 13.13 The Remote Installation Preparation Wizar= d is started by executing RIPrep.exe from a Windows 2000 Professional client com= puter
Even though you ran RIPrep.exe from one RIS server, you do= not have to necessarily copy the image you are creating to that particular serv= er. Figure 13.14 shows the next step in creating an image with RIPrep, where you choose which RIS server to copy the image to.
Figure 13.14 If you have multiple RIS servers on your network, you can choose which server should receive the image
The next step in creating the RIS image is to supply the n= ame of the installation directory on the RIS server previously chosen. Typically, = you would type the name of an existing directory only if you were replacing an existing image. If this new image will not be replacing an existing image, = type in a new directory name as shown in figure 13.15 and click next.
Figure 13.15 Supply a directory name on the RIS server= for the Remote Installation Preparation Wizard to copy the image
In our example, the image is being created for a corporate= web developer environment. For that reason, we gave the directory a descriptive name such as webdev in order to identify the image it contains on the RIS server.
In figure 13.16 we see the next step in creating an image,= which is assigning a friendly name to the image and creating the help text. The friendly name is what displays in the list of available images during the Client Installation Wizard. The help text provides an additional descriptio= n to help the user identify the correct image to use when acting as a RIS client= . In our example RIS image for a web development system, we list the applications that will be installed on the system along with the Windows 2000 Profession= al operating system as part of the imaging process.
Figure 13.16 By assigning a friendly name and help tex= t, users can identify the correct image to use during the Client Installation Wizard
If you have any programs or services running that could interfere with the imaging process, Windows 2000 will warn you. Figure 13.17 lists a number of programs and services that were running on the RIS image source workstation at the time this example image was being created. Once y= ou have closed the programs and stopped the necessary services, click next.
Figure 13.17 The Remote Installation Preparation Wizard prompts you to close any programs and services that might interfere with the imaging process.
Before beginning the actual image creation, the wizard all= ows you to review your choices. Notice in figure 13.18 that the folder name is incorrect. Initially we had created a generic folder that we had intended to use for RIS images, only to later decide to create separate subfolders for = each image. By reviewing the settings we had configured, we were able to back up through the wizard and change the folder name from RISimages to w= ebdev before starting the actual image creation.
Figure 13.18 Before starting the actual image creation= , take a moment to review your settings and ensure they are correct.
The last step, as shown in figure 13.19, is an information dialog from the Remote Installation Preparation Wizard that describes the process that is about to occur. Once you understand what is about to happen= on your system, click next to continue. You can watch the RIPrep wizard image process taking place, which will be similar to that shown in figure 13.20.<= /p> Figure 13.19 The RIPrep wizard informs you of how the = image process will take place on your system before beginning
Figure 13.20 The RIPrep wizard displays the current st= atus of the image process, showing the completed, current, and pending tasks
images created by the RIPrep wizard are stored in the same subfolder as images created during RISetup. If you took the default settings when we examined the RISetup wizard earlier in this chapter, and are using = an English language version of Windows 2000 Server, your RIS directory structu= re will be as follows:
* = \RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Image= s\\i386\ -- This is the default image created during the RISetup wizard earlier. The= re are subdirectories underneath i386 for this CD-based installation image, fo= r system32, templates, and uniproc.
* = \RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Image= s\webdev\i386\ -- This is the image directory we just created for our webdev image. There = is a directory called Mirror1 that appears under i386 that does not appea= r in the subdirectories of a RISetup created image.
RIPrep Files
In addition to the directory structure created, it is impo= rtant to know what files are important to the RIPrep image. These files are as follows:
* = RIPrep.log -- This ASCII text file documents the Remote Installation Preparation Wizard image process, listing any errors and relevant information that might be of troubleshooting use to an administrator.
* = Bootcode.dat -- This file is located in the \Mirror1 subdirectory of the image's i386 folder, and contains the boot sector information for the client system.
* = Imirror.dat -- This file also is located in the \Mirror1 directory, and contains installation information about the image source computer, such as the installation directory and the HAL type.
It is
