In case you have started to receive this error while trying to access a particular application, please try to reinstall the application.

In case that the number of applications that are giving the error message is more.

Try a system restore to a date when these errors were not coming up.

Once you do a system restore please also try disk defragmentation.

I think this should work for you.

How to make a optical mouse work better?


Your mouse is an important part of your computer system, and when that mouse has problems it is important to get them resolved as quickly as possible.


There are a number of things that can cause a mouse pointer to behave erratically, and it is important to work through each of those possible causes one by one.


Change the batteries if you are using a wireless mouse.

The batteries in a wireless mouse will generally last a long time, especially if you use rechargeable batteries.


But once the battery power begins to decline, the batteries will lose power very rapidly.

If you are using a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to stutter and jump, chances are that changing the batteries will resolve the issue.


Move the wireless transmitter to another USB port.

Problems with the wireless transmitter can cause the mouse pointer to stutter and jump. Moving the transmitter to another port will often resolve this issue.


Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on your computer's desktop, and choose "Properties" from the menu.

Click on the "Hardware" tab, and click the "Device Manager" button.


Navigate to the mouse entry in the list of hardware devices, right-click and choose "Update Driver" from the menu.

Allow your operating system to search for and install the most recent driver for your model mouse.


Clean the mouse surface thoroughly if you are not using a mouse pad.

If you are using a mouse pad, shake any dust or dirt off of it to make sure the surface is perfectly smooth.


Any imperfections in the surface could cause the mouse pointer to behave erratically.

To clean the mouse surface, hold a clean cloth over the opening of a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and soak the cloth.


Then, go over the entire surface with the alcohol-soaked cloth and allow the surface to dry before attempting to use the mouse again.


Click on the "Start" button, and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.

Double-click the "Mouse" icon, and click the "Mouse Pointer" tab.


Adjust the speed of the mouse.

If the mouse speed is set too fast, it can cause the mouse pointer to stutter or hiccup.


It may take a few tries to get the speed just right, so just move the slider and test each new setting


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7


in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar


Hope this helps

1. To save files received from bluetooth on sd card: Open messaging. Go to settings. Scroll to the end and select other settings. Change the default memory to Memory card. It will ask to copy or move the messages and file from phone memory to sd card. Select move to memory card.
Now all files will go to sd memory card.

When attempting to update my bdp-120 blu-ray player, I continue to get an error message saying I have more than one sofware file on the USB memory device. The only file on the device is the update. How can...


You need to format your usb memory device which will mean that everything will be erased from it so move anything you want to save first. Before you attempt to place the file on the usb device again make sure it has been unzipped first.

Need to delete email w/2 large of attachment after clicking send


1. Go the File menu, then choose Work Offline in order to stop Outlook from trying to send all mails:
2. Switch to the Outbox.
3. You now have two options:
a. Move the message: you can drag-and-drop or use the Edit: Move to Folder menu item to move the e-mail to your drafts folder. This will allow you to re-open the offending e-mail and slim it down by removing the large attachments before attempting to resend it.

b. Delete the message: this will immediately remove the message from the Outbox and put it in Deleted Items.
4.

If you receive an error at this point that says the message is being transmitted, close Outlook, wait for Outlook to exit (you may need to use Task Manager and wait for the Outlook.exe process to exit), and then start Outlook again and repeat steps 2-3. In some cases, the item may not be released until Outlook has restarted.
5. Go to the File menu, deselect Work Offline to start sending and receiving mail again.
