Have you tired simply restarting the computer? You can also right click the Task Bar and choose Task Manager. Look in the applications Tab and stop it from running there. If it is not listed in Applications then look in Processes and stop it there. The Tour will stop running after you stop it 3 times.

Software Spotlight: MagicPrefs


36eb92a.jpg

When released in late 2009, Apple’s new Magic Mouse had incredible potential and clearly innovated the mouse, putting the first ever touch sensitive surface into the face of the mouse. The new mouse adds a few nifty features like scrolling with a flick of a finger but lacks features from the Mighty Mouse. For example, launching applications like Exposé right from a button on the mouse. The free OS X program called MagicPrefs gives the Magic Mouse limitless user-customized controls to everyday applications by a swipe of a finger. The software enables clicks, taps, swipes, and drag and pinch finger gestures to perform handy operations. MagicPrefs can open any applications, search with Spotlight, hide other programs, and even right-click for those PC users. MagicPrefs is a great little piece of software to help get the most out of the Magic Mouse. MagicPrefs can be downloaded here and is well worth the time to download and install.

When I click icon on my computer it reads page not found:404error


The shortcut on your desktop somehow has the wrong address. To create a new icon:
1) Open up your Web browser
2) In the browser's address bar, type "netflix.com"; that should take you to the Netflix site
3) If necessary, resize your browser window so that it's not taking up the whole screen
4) In the address bar, you should see the Netflix red "N" followed by http://www.netflix.com
5) Click and drag that red N to the desktop (if you don't know how to click and drag, it's: 1) point your mouse at the red N, 2) press and hold the left mouse button, 3) while still holding down the left mouse button, move your mouse to an empty spot on your desktop, 4) release the left mouse button)

Now you can delete the old icon
1) Right-click on the old Netflix icon
2) On the menu that pops up, click on "Delete"
3) If a box pops up asking if you want to delete, click the "Yes" button

Mouse did not connect to receiver


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

The mouse uses two AA 1.5Volt batteries, ensure that they are installed in the correct orientation. Positive and negative polarity, on each. New strong batteries are required for this application.
A red light shoud elumanate from the bottom of the mouse when batteries are installed.

Now connect the USB cable from the receiver to the USB port on your computer, you may need to try different ones.
Once this stage has been completed you can install the drivers for your Microsoft mouse, they can be found on the CD disk that came with your Mouse.
The drivers may need to be installed using a wired mouse.

Beneath the mouse there is a button, press it.
On the receiver there is a button press it.

The receiver will now find the mouse and connect.

Thanking you kindly

How to put program type on tool bar


  1. Adding Icons to the Task Bar

    1. Click on the Start Menu to open it
    2. Click on "Programs" and find the program for which you want to create an icon
    3. Move your mouse pointer to the program you want to use
    4. Depress and hold down the right mouse button while you drag the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar section of the Task Bar
    5. When you release the right mouse button, a short menu will appear
    6. Choose "Create Shortcut(s) Here." An icon will be created in the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar

  2. Deleting Icons from the Task Bar

    1. Move the mouse pointer to the icon you want to delete
    2. Right-click on the icon
    3. Choose "Delete" from the short menu that appears. The icon has been deleted, but the program is still available to you on your hard disk

    NOTE: If you have carefully followed the steps above to add the icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, deleting it will NOT delete the program from your computer, it will simply remove the icon from your toolbar. The program will still be available to you.

Also you can "Drag" the program, to the bar, and "Drop" it on it. Check out a freeware application called StartupCPL at http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. This places a Startup icon in your Control Panel which, when opened, lists all applications on your PC with a check box for each one. Simply put a check mark in each application you want to open minimized on startup. By the way, it states it is for Windows ME and 2000, but I have had it on XP for quite a while and it works fine.

How to set up and use targus wireless computer mouse model#amw26


Under the mouse there should be a usb stick attached to the mouse which most likely should slide out from the mouse. It also appears that the plastic cover behind the two buttons (this cover has targus written on it) Should come off. After you remove the usb stick there might be a button somewhere on the bottom of the mouse that you should be able to press to get the battery cover to pop up. Then you should be able to pull up on the battery cover and remove it from the mouse. This mouse takes two AA batteries. Once the batteries are installed then plug the usb stick into any of the usb ports on the computer. The computer should recognize the drivers for this mouse (if you are using Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Mac OS X [or higher]). If the drivers are not immediately recognized then restart your computer and the computer should then recognize the mouse. If this still does not happen then let me know. Also there is software that can be downloaded from the Targus website for the tilt wheel as it has some added capabilities that can be set using this software. The link for that software is here ------> http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=AMW26US

I hope this helps, and enjoy that mouse, it looks pretty nice!

CPU usage very high, mouse very slow man


hi,
you haven't mentioned whether your mouse started moving after you deleted the applications..
Anyway to lower your CPU usage, you can do the following...
1. Run 'msconfig' without the inverted comas in the run dialog box. ( start--> run )
2. Select the startup tab... you can disable all application at startup to load the system faster. or you can select the application that you thing is unnecessary. this needs a restart.
3. Next try to press Ctrl, Alt , Del at the ssame time to launch the task manager. First you will be seeing the application that is running. Go to the next tab that is the Processes tab. under this you will see all the processes that is running and utilsing how much resources . Below on the status bar of that window you will see the cpu usage... Now identify the processes that has the highest memory usage... right click and select end process tree. the process will be stopped. Remember not to end the explorer.exe process. Most resources is utilised by Anti-virus softwares like norton, also by web-browsing and graphics opertaions....

hope to get rated as fixya!!

regards
bzoy..
