How to Remove the Selective Startup Popup?


Open the Start menu of the PC, and select Run.

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-0.jpg

Type regedit in the text area and press OK. The registry editor opens. 26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-2.jpg Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg Expand SOFTWARE then Microsoft

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg
Expand Windows then CurrentVersion, then Run. On the right hand panel of the registry editor there will appear a list of program items which are related to the startup of the PC.

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg Locate the item called MSConfigReminder and select it. Go to the Editor's drop down Favorites menu and click add so that the editor will go straight to the item in future, should it ever be necessary.
  • Then, with the MSConfigReminder item still selected, press delete to remove it, and close the editor.

26319213-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-35.jpg
  • There is no need to save anything for the editor; it is saved automatically as it closes.
  • On next startup the offending pop-up will have gone.

How to Launch a Microsoft Windows Application?


follow this steps
  1. Look around the desktop. There, chances are, if you installed the application with default settings, you will find it as a desktop icon. If so, double click it and you are good-to-go! If not, proceed to the next steps.
  2. Open the start menu by clicking "Start". There, you may find a menu item with the name of the program on it. If so, click it and within seconds the application will start loading.
  3. Click on "All Programs". If you find the application name, click it, and if another menu (a subfolder) appears, click the application inside the menu. Otherwise, hover over all the folders (menu items with arrows next to them) until you find the application, and when you do, click it.

In Yahoo messanger, I can see what I type in my writting message box, but when I hit the send, in the top box nothing is seen


Some virus can cause this bug in Yahoo Messenger. Check your Internet Options, go to Security Tab, and see if there is a new item. Normal items there are Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted sites, and Restricted sites. If you see a new item, chances are you were hit by a virus.

To resolve this, open a registry editor (click Start, click Run. On the Open box, type: regedit and then press Enter). Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft\ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings \ Zones

There should only be 5 items there, numbered 0 to 4. If you see a different one, especially if you see items that shows up as box, try deleting it. (Backup your registry first). If you were able to delete that extra item, this might fix the bug, and you will be able to see the chat messages again in yahoo messenger.

How to use or install windows xp uploader to use in uploading photos in friendster?


Hi,

This is a multi-stage process ... it takes some effort to get it working but it is worth it in the end

first, on Friendster's Upload Photos page, click the link for the "Windows XP Uploader Wizard" to download and install the registry file that enables the "XP Publishing Wizard" ... just click on "Open" in the Download Complete dialog or double click the xppubwiz.reg file ... now when you open My Computer and select your photo you will see a new option in the left-hand pane under "File and Folder Tasks" entitled "Publish this file to the Web" ... click on that to launch the Web Publishing Wizard

click Next and it will give you the opportunity to "Change Your File Selection" by checking and unchecking the corresponding boxes, but since the file you selected is already checked we can skip that ... now the wizard wants to know where you want to publish the file ... the first time you use the wizard you will probably only have one choice: "MSN Groups" ... if you have a Windows Live or .NET Passport ID you can use that; otherwise the wizard will help you create one ... so select "MSN Groups", then click Next and select a folder where you want your photo to be published

now, the whole reason we are going through this agonizing procedure is that your photo is too big to upload directly, so the wizard complains about the file size ... no problem, click Next and then Next again and the wizard asks if you want to resize the file ... check the Yes box and select whichever file size you like ... click Next again and the wizard will compress and upload your photo ... with any luck you will see that your upload was successful, so click Next and the wizard will inform you that you have successfully published your file and that a shortcut has been added to "My Network Places" ... so click Finish

but we are still only half way there ... now, open your Friendster page, go to the Upload Photos page and click on "Browse Files" just like normal ... remember that shortcut that was added in "My Network Places"? navigate to Desktop, then "My Network Places", then follow the long chain down to the folder where you published your photo ... double click your file and you are back at Friendster and you can click "Start Upload" ... mission accomplished

and now we get the pay off for all your hard work ... the next time you use the wizard to upload a large file, in addition to "MSN Groups", the wizard will offer you the "Friendster Bulk Upload" ... select that, click Next, enter your Friendster login info and select the album you want your photo to appear in ... now when the wizard has resized your photo it will be uploaded directly to the album you selected!!

one more bit of house-keeping ... you can still use your MSN Group folder to upload your photos to other sites, but you only have 3 MB for your files unless you buy extra space ... so you may have to delete some old files to make room for new ones

hope this helps, Please rate my response! Thanks!!

My Control Panel crashes when I switch views.


Please try to open control panel in safe mode and let me know what happens?
you can go to safe mode by tapping f8 when computer is starting up.
If safe mode works fine then any of the the start up item, third party service,spyware or useraccount is causing the problem.

To find if startup item is causing the problem we need to use the msconfig command on run and click on startup item and disable all apply close click and restart on prompt and try to open control panel on normal mode.

please let me know the safe mode status.
