My computer keeps "auto-adding" contacts I already have. how can I stop this?


If you use Windows Live Mail to manage your Hotmail account, any email addresses that you reply to at least three times are automatically stored in your Address Book as frequent contacts. If this function is cluttering your contacts list and you want to deactivate it, you can do so through Windows Live Mail's Options dialog.

Open Windows Live Mail and click the "Show Menu" button, then "Options." Select the "Send" tab in the Options dialog box that appears. Uncheck the box next to "Automatically put people I reply to in my address book after the third reply" and click "OK."

We currently have benkin wireless in th home but for some reason can't get it to hook up on two other computers in the house. What should we do


Before you do the steps below make sure your Networking Interface Card (NIC) is working. You can find out this by typing 127.0.0.1 in command prompt (to bring command prompt type cmd in the RUN command)

Step 01: type ncpa.cpl on the Run command
Step 02: Right click the network connection and navigate to the properties.
Step 03: Under Networking Tab select the Internet Protocol IP v 4 click property button right underneath it.
Step 04: Under General make sure to click the Obtain IP automatically and Obtain DNS automatically. This allows your belkin wireless router to assign IP address dynamically.
Step 05: Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1 (usually this address is your default gateway if not 0.1 or 2.1 on the address) and access the belkin router.
LAN settings: IP address should be your default gateway address and subnet mask will assign automatically if not type 255.255.255.0 on the subnet mask section.
Make sure DHCP (Dynamic Host Config Protocol) is on and assign IP pool from next address to starting address and ending usually 254 or 100)
Start 192.168.2.2 End 192.168.2.100

Lease Make sure DNS are assign automatically.
ignore above steps if they are already assigned.
once you finished reboot your computer (you dont have to do this)
Now open browser enjoy.
If you still dont get internet you must check your cabling with ur router to pc. or different port

Sir how can i make a boot able pen drive for the win xp-2 plz give me the step


Hello Sir,

First up, we need to prepare the flash drive.
  1. Download and unzip this file , which should contain 2 folders: 1 titled Bootsect, and the other USB_prep8.
  2. Navigate to the USB_prep8 folder and click on usb_prep8.cmd. This will bring up a Windows console window.
  3. Press any key to continue and a PeToUSB window will open.
  4. Make sure your flash drive is selected, and click start to format your flash drive.
  5. When the format is complete, click OK, but do not close the PeToUSB window or the Windows Console.
  6. Open a new console window by typing “cmd” into the run box in the Windows Start Menu.
  7. Directed to the second folder – Bootsect folder (if you’re not used to DOS commands, you can type “dir” to list directories and files, type “cd foldername” to navigate to a folder name – called foldername in this example, and if there’s a long folder name you can save time by typing the “cd” and just the first few letters and then hitting the Tab key to fill in the rest of the name).
  8. Once you’re in the Bootsect folder, type “bootsect.exe /nt52 g:” if “g” is the letter assigned to your flash drive. If it’s E, then change the letter to e. If it’s Z, make it z. Get it?
  9. When this is done, you should see a message letting you know that the bootcode was updated, and you can close this console window (but not the other console window).
  10. Close the PeToUSb Window, but make sure not to close the remaining console window yet
  11. You should now see a list of 8 options in the console.
  12. Select one and find the drive with your Windows installation disc.
  13. Select 2 and pick a random drive letter (but not one that’s already on your PC, since this will be a virtual drive used for copying your files).
  14. Select 3 and enter the drive letter for your USB flash drive.
  15. Select 4 and follow the rest of the on-screen directions and you should be all set.
A few notes here. First of all, there’s a chance you may get down to step 15 and the program will tell you that it can’t create the virtual drive. This may happen if you’ve already gone through the whole process and are trying to do it again to fix problems. The solution seems to be rebooting your computer and trying again. Or at least that’s what worked for me.
Second, if you use NLite to shrink/slipstream/otherwise modify your Windows XP installation file, make sure you do not remove “manual installation files,” or your USB stick will be pretty much useless.

Once your usb drive is ready, go to your bios and set USB to first position in boot order. Now plug the usb and restart.

Automatic address, compose, forward, does not work.


Completing addresses when addressing an email works a bit different as Outlook doesn’t have an AutoComplete feature but has an AutoSuggest feature a Check Names feature instead.

The subtle difference between the two is that the AutoSuggest feature doesn’t have a direct relation to your Contacts folder or other address lists configured in your Address Book. Instead, AutoSuggest uses a cache which contains a list of addresses that you’ve previously used.

Outlook also has another feature which is similar to AutoComplete; Check Names.

Check Names can work interactively and by default also works as a background process.

Check Names – Interactive
To use Check Names interactively, you type part of the name or address and then press the Check Names button on the Toolbar or Ribbon or press its keyboard shortcut (for most localized versions this is CTRL+K). This will search in your Address Book for that part of the name. If only a single address is resolved, it will directly show this in the To-field (or CC or BCC field). If multiple addresses are found, then it will prompt you with a dialog to select the correct address from.

Check Names – Background
When you only type part of a name or address and then switch to the message body, Check Names will perform a background search in your Address Book. If only a single address is resolved, it will autocomplete the address for you. If multiple addresses are found, it will underline the address with a red scribble line.

When you press the Send button while an address is not fully resolved, you’ll get prompted to select the correct address.

To turn of this background feature of Check Names go to;
Tools-> Options…-> E-mail Options…-> Advanced E-mail Options-> disable option: Automatic name checking

No internet connection, system stuck on ''acquiring ntwrk address''


It's doing this because it's not getting the IP from either the router or the modem. Goto Start, run and type cmd. Now type ipconfig /all. On this this list you should see IP address = 192.168.??.?? andDefault Gateway = 192.168.??.??. If your getting both of these addresses then your system if infected with virus. I suspect though that your list is probably not filled out. If so type ipconfig /flush dns. Then type ipconfig /renew. These commands should bring you back online, if not I would call Conmcast and have theme ping the modem. If the modem pings fine I would say that either your modem cable or network card are faulty.

Need to renew ip address for my emachine T3516


just right click on your local connection on the desktop by the clock and click on "repair". this should clear the cache and renew the IP addy and DNS for yur connection. OR

Follow these steps to quickly release and/or renew the Internet Protocol (IP) address of a computer running Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT. Here's How:
  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
  2. Click Run... on this menu.
  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically
