Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

Zip files My problem is with downloading files from emails. When downloading groups of pictures as a zip file (using the download all option in the email) or anything that has a .wmv extension or powerpoint files, once the download is complete, there are no files in the folder. The computer takes me through the download steps, (open or save, ect) and then when I try to access or unzip the files, the folder is empty. Any suggestions?

Batch downloading multiple web pages


Looking for a way to download multiple web pages, images or other files from web sites without using a browser?

First, download and install URL2File Windows Application, which is the program we'll be using in this example (URL2File Windows Application is a product of Chami.com). URL2File can retrieve and save the content of a given World Wide Web URL to a local file. So, to retrieve the web page at http://www.chami.com/tips/ and save it to a local file named tips.htm, run the following command from a Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box:URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/ tips.htmNote the format of the above command: URL2File followed by the web page/file address and the name of the file that you want to save the content as.The next step is to create a batch file that can call URL2File for eachfile you need to download. A Windows batch file is a text file with alist of commands, usually with the .BAT extension.Let's assume that there are three files named file1.zip, file2.zip and file3.zip at http://www.chami.com/tips/ that you need to download. To create a batch file to download above files:
  • Open Windows Notepad
  • Enter following three commands into the blank notepad (one command per file to be downloaded):URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file1.zip file1.zip
    URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file2.zip file2.zip
    URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file3.zip file3.zip
  • Save the notepad file with a name of your choice followed by .BAT ("download.bat" for example)
Now run "download.bat" from your Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box by typing:downloadand hitting ENTER. The newlycreated batch file will call URL2File three times for each of the threefiles and sequentially download them for you. To download other files,simply modify the batch file and run it again.

I cant open msi files on my laptop


Hello the file is probably in the zip format (compressed file)
and you need to unzip the file before you can use it.

Here is a free program:

http://www.7-zip.org/

Download and install the exe file.
When installed right click on the zip file and choose 7 zip and extract here or to a folder.

Other files from msi uses adobe reader.
Download here:

Can someone tell me the steps to send a group of pictures as an attachment to an e-mail. I'm not good at the computer. Any help would be appreciated.


The exact steps may vary slightly based on what program or website you are using as your email provider, however, I will try to give you a general idea:

If you are going to send a lot of pictures at once, you might want to create a .zip file by putting them all in one folder, then right-clicking on that folder and clicking "Send to>>Compressed (zipped) folder". This will create a new, single file that has all of the images in it. This will make it easier to send.

Open your email and create a new message. Click the attachment button. Click browse, then select the zipped file on your computer (it will be wherever you created it, Desktop, My Documents, etc.). Click Add to email. Once you see the zipped file showing under attachments on your email, you are ready to send the email.

Need to scan multiple documents as a pdf and email file but when i scan file the fileis to big to email


Have you tried compressing the file into a zip format. If you are using Windows this can be done using right click or download zip genuis and use that. Once compressed the file should be small enough to email.

Problem downloading files up to 100 mb


Well, here's a bit complicated, yet effective method that just might reduce your downloading headaches... Let's say you're connect to the Internet using a 28.8K modem and that your Internet service provider lets you telnet to their server. Of course, your provider's server can download files much faster, so the idea here is to download the file to their server at high speed, split it, and retrieve parts at the highest speed you can to your provider's server. Generally speaking, this method not only is a faster way to download files, but it is also a more reliable method since you'll be downloading many smaller files rather than one large file.
First, find out the FTP address of the large (larger than 16M for example) file that you want to download. For example:
ftp://ftp.x.com/bigfile.zip
Telnet to your Internet service provider's server.
telnet x.com
From within the telnet session, download your file to your provider's server. Following is a "screen shout" of a sample file transfer on an UNIX compatible server. Blue/bold text represents your input.
ftp
ftp> open ftp.x.com
Connected to ftp.x.com.
220 ftp x.cpm FTP Service (Version 2.0).
User (ftp.x.com:(none)): anonymous
331 Anonymous access allowed, send identity as
Password: my_address@x.com
ftp> binary
200 Type set to I.
ftp> get bigfile.zip
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for bigfile.zip
226 Transfer complete.
ftp> quit
221 Thank you for using x.com! Once the file is download to the server, the next step is to divide the file into smaller pieces so that you will not waste too much time downloading should your Internet dial-up connection go down.
split -b 2000b bigfile.zip
You're almost there! Now simply log off from your telnet session and start downloading (from your provider's server to your computer) smaller files (not the bigfile.zip) which the above split command (on most UNIX compatible machines) created.
Once you have all the files, simply merge them and you got a good copy of the original bigfile.zip. If you're using DOS or Windows, you can merge files using the following command (assuming that bigfile.zip (16000 byte file) was divided into 8 2000 byte files named xaa to xah):
copy /b xaa xab xac xad xae xaf xag xah bigfile.zip
Don't forget to log back into your Internet service provider's computers and delete temporary files (bigfile.zip and xaa..xah) once you've made sure that your downloaded copy is in good condition. Doesn't sound like the above steps could make your downloads faster or more reliable? Well, in most cases it does; specially if the file you're downloading is rather large. The reason why this method could possibly be faster is because you can download files from your provider's computer to your computer faster than from most remote sites. Of course, the reason for reliability is that downloading many smaller files makes it possible to resume a download without wasting as much time as resuming a larger file download would.
