    I am using an Acer Aspire 5002WLMi running Windows XP. How do I turn GridVista on and off? Thank you.

    Glad to HELP YOU!

    Here it is what you have to do:
    # "to turn off GridVista" just pull up the TASKBAR (where the clock is);
    # look for the Gridvista icon (looks like a monitor with white dividing lines across it) and once you have identified it move your mouse over the icon;
    # click the right button and select EXIT

    It's DONE!

    My best regards!

    I can't find the icon to have a web cam is usually at the bottom right corner of the is a little man...what do I do? dissappeared don't know!

    It sounds like you are using chating program such as MSN or AOL. If you can't see it in the bottom right corner, you can check whether there is a arrow on the edge of that bottom right corner, you can click on the arrow to show more icons there. Sometimes the system is set to hide the idle icons in the bottom right corner. You can undo that by right clicking there and choose properties from the pop-up menu and then select the Notification Area tab or something like the System Tray tab depending on the Operating System installed. Then you will see the option to Hide Idle Icons. You can uncheck it to see all the icons.
    If the icon is still not there, start it from the Start menu. It should be under Program and Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Messenger or something like those. If your computer freeze when doing that, you might need to restart, or choose ALT-DEL-CONTROL and select Start Task Manager and kill the process about MSN or AOL. Don't hesitate to turn to me if any questions. Thanks.
