You have Vista? I have today the same message. I was simply in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Quark\
Here, you will normally find the file "XPressPreferences"
Remove it and it will rework fine.

You have probably Quark 7 and Quark 8...

Hp touch smart all in one desk top pc shuts off after 5 - 10 minutes.


Check to see if your power saving settings is set to Shutdown/Sleep or go into Hibernation after a specific time limit. Other solution is you installed an incompatable Software program version for your Windows Version.... This will cause all sorts of problems with booting to freqent shutdowns with out reason.

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

Using adobe reader 9 on a document which read fine on version 7 returns the error "root missing or invalid"


Solution 1
Upgrade to StuffIt 8.5, then unstuff the archive again. See Allume's Web site at
for more information.

Solution 2
Change the cross-platform preference in StuffIt, Magic Menu, or StuffIt Deluxe then re-extract the PDF file:
1. In StuffIt or Magic Menu, choose File > Preferences. In StuffIt Deluxe, choose Edit > Preferences.
2. Click the Cross-Platform icon on the left of the Preferences dialog box.
3. Select Never in the Convert text files to Macintosh format section, then click OK.
4. Re-extract the PDF file:
- If you're using StuffIt, drag the archive onto the StuffIt icon.
- If you're using Magic Menu, select the archive and then choose Expand from the Magic Menu.
- If you're using StuffIt Deluxe, press Control+Command while double-clicking the archive.

QuarkXPress 6.0 Passport - it works initally but when I temporarily leave the program and then go back to it it always freezes and I have to force quit.


If you are really using the 6.0 version the first thing you're going to want to do is download and install a free update to the latest maintenance release of QuarkXPress 6. I think it's QuarkXPress 6.53 and you can get it from www.quark.com. You may have to upgrade through multiple versions to get there i.e. install the update to 6.5 and then up to 6.53 after that.

Certain websites are simply not working. I just reformatted my pc and the problem persists. I have no idea what might be the cause.


Check to make sure you have no pop-up bloker on. Also, make sure that the sites haven't been blocked out. Check to make sure you are using an up to date inernet browser, eg: Internet Explorer 7, available for download here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx
Check with your server if this doesnt help. If this browser is incompatible with your system, check this link out for older versions. http://oldversion.com/program.php?n=msie
