There is one option you may not know about. This is normally one of the tricks that the Tech help desk ppl at Microsoft and such often use. It could be due to a corrupt registry key or incomplete Windows file. I also Use Windows XP and this has saved me countless times. Click on the start button on the bottom left of your screen, then click on the icon that says Run, in the dialog box type sfc scannow. This will prompt your version of Windows to scan all critical files for errors and fix them as needed. Make sure to have your windows CD handy as it will be needed by this tool to make changes to the Operating system core files and registry keys.

I CANT GET TO MY OLD MAIL ACCOUNT


Good Day Minister!

Here's a way to go back to classic Yahoo Mail.

Change first the display settings of your desktop. Change it to lower resolution. 800 x 600 is recommended.

1. Click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your computer to display the Start menu. Choose the "Control Panel" option from the right side of the Start menu. The "Control Panel" window will open onto your desktop.

2. Double-click the "Display" icon from the Control Panel to open the "Display Properties" dialog box. You can then select the "Settings" tab from the top of the dialog box.

3. Slide the bar under the "Screen resolution" setting of the "Display Properties" dialog box to decrease the screen resolution. Choose 800 x 600.

4. Click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the "Display Properties" dialog box to apply the settings.

5. Choose the "OK" button. The "Display Properties" dialog box will close and the settings will be saved.

REMEMBER: All icons and display image of your desktop will get bigger.

Next, open your internet browser and log in to your Yahoo mail Account.
The New Yahoo Mail does not support lower resolution of display setting. So it will ask you to switch back to Classic Yahoo Mail.
You will find the two links to switch back to Classic Yahoo Mail on the lower right portion of the page.
Click it.
The next time you open your Yahoo Mail, it's in classic mode.

You can return to your original display setting of desktop once the switching was successful.

Enjoy the old Yahoo Mail.

I have a scanned PDF document that I want to highlight and previously when the text wasn't recongnized it would ask to convert. At one point I checked the "do not ask again" box and now I am...


Basically Acrobat comes with a feature called as OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which helps acrobat in recognizing the text being used in a particular scanned document.
Just for the information, Acrobat 7 used to come with OCR accuracy of approximately 85% which has increased to 95% accuracy in the latest version of Acrobat (Acrobat X)
Now, in Acrobat 7, what you need to do is try running the OCR again on this document by following the steps mentioned below:
  • Open the document in Acrobat 7
  • Go to Document menu at the top
  • Click OCR text Recognition option under that menu
  • Then Recognize Text using OCR under that
  • This will open recognize text dialog box
  • Make sure All Pages option is selected in the new dialog box
  • Then click the edit button available in the same dialog box
  • This should open recognize text setting dialog box
  • Select Clearscan option in PDF Output Style drop down
  • Click Ok and then Ok again which should start the OCR on the open document
  • After OCR successfully completes try highlighting the text and see if you can do it
If you are still unable to do it, I would suggest you to download the trial version of Acrobat X from adobe.com which is a fully functional version which you can use for 30 days. After downloading this trial try opening the same document there and try running the OCR again and perform the highlighting of text again in Acrobat X itself.
If it still does not work please reply back with the results of the above mentioned steps and we can try performing some other workarounds to make the text recognizable.

Couldn't open the hard Drive folders....


hi sir,

i think you have an autorun.inf file residing at your local drives. this probably infected by a virus.

go to control panel >folder option> click View> choose "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files, this will show hidden autorun.inf file. In your explorer, right click your local disk and click explore, this will show all your files and folders of your drive, navigate autorun.inf file, if found delete it.
note: it has an associated file called vbsscript file...if found also delete it..do the same with the other drives. empty recycle bin and restart.
