Configuration progress So far you guys are 2 for 2 with my problems, great job by the way. I do appreciate what you have done for me.... OK, I had to do a reinstall recently with windows xp pro 2000. Everything went smooth, no problems until I put in Microsoft office 2007 home and student version. That seemed to install just fine, until I go to open up any programs, such as word. Everytime I try to open one I get a Configuration Progress box that pops up, then it takes around 2 1/2- 3 minutes for it to load then open. Is there a settings I missed or clicked wrong. I have a Dell 8400 desktop. I did have this program in my system before I crashed it and it worked just fine, I think I might have skipped something in the install. But I did uninstall and reinstall a second time and I have the same problem. Thanks for all of your great help.....

If the "Configuration Progress box" is coming up every time you run and Office 2007 product, Click on "Start" -> "Control panel "->"Add or Remove Programs ". Check to see if you Still have a previous version of the Microsoft product installed. For example, "Microsoft Word " from "Microsoft Office 2007" takes 2 to 3 minutes to load because the "Configuration Progress box" comes up, checking the "Add or Remove Programs", showed "Microsoft Office 2003 " was still installed. After remove "Microsoft Office 2003", "Microsoft Word 2007" opened quickly without the configuration bar.

I just bought the Norton Antivirus 2011 and now my DVD/CD drive is not operating properly. Is there anyway to download it from the website. I have the product key/receipt. Any assistanceyou can give...


There are lower and upper filters that can be deleted in the registry. It needs to be done by someone who knows how. This will fix 90% of cd drive problems. The only other thing is if the drive crapped out completely. There is a version downloadable. For computers without cd drives and norton has the USB versions out. Always check with staples easytech in temple TX or AnyMHz.com computer store for help.

Need information about robots as an introduction? about computer graphics? about jobs on computers?


ROBOTS
One of the least discussed topics in hobby level robotics is software. You can almost always find a hardware description, schematic, drawing, and tons of help on the electro-mechanical side of your project. However, the software, which admittedly is one of the hard parts, eludes many people. In this article, I would like to demonstrate how to structure your software so your robot will function properly.
I would also like to point out a great technique for getting started. Many software engineers make heavy use of something called 'Pseudo Code'. This is a technique where you write your program in half programming language and half human language (English, Spanish, Driud, etc). Pseudo code is very useful for getting the layout of your program ready, to get basic algorithms worked out, and to be able to read your 'code' quickly. I will demonstrate this technique a little later.
As for programming languages, it doesn't matter which language you choose to use. I personally use the 'C' programming language the most. BASIC, Assembler, or FORTH are all fine choices. It turns out that the language is a small part of the structure of your program. The software has a job to do, and the key is to get it done! I am going to write this article in SBASIC, but the techniques are the same no matter which language you choose. SBASIC is available from Karl Lunts website at http://www.seanet.com/~karllunt/tips.htm.

PC JOBS



Types of Computing Jobs
  • Data Entry - This is a job just about anyone can get. Basically, you take information from a piece of paper and use it to fill out a form on the computer. Many old hands who started out in this role are now heading up computer departments.
  • Secretarial/Administrative - This position involves some basic office skills. Not only must you understand the basics of using your computer and a few applications, but you'll probably also be expected to take dictation, answer phones, type letters, and keep things organized. In terms of computer skills, you should know how to use word processing, accounting, and spreadsheet programs at the very least. People in this role often move into other computing roles such as Managers, Meeting Organizers and Human Resources. Naturally you can move into mainstream computing areas, particularly QA and Testing.
  • Power User - Not so much a position as a status of being an extremely proficient user of (typically) Microsoft Office or similar tools. Advanced users of these tools become familiar with the basics of computer programming through starting with Excel macros or Access database programming. One can become very valuable to a small business by learning such skills, and even start to consult with other small businesses at rates typically starting around $50 an hour.
  • Customer Service/Telesales - These positions usually place a higher emphasis on phone skills than computer skills, but you should know at least the basics of how to use your computer.
  • Technical Support (Production Support) - Most companies consider technical support to be an entry-level computer job. You are expected to know the operating systems on which the product you'll support will run, and you'll also need to know the basics of any programs that product might interact with. The good news is that the company will teach you what you need to know about their products - you just need to learn everything else. Success in technical support requires good problem-solving skills and a great deal of attention to detail. Technical Support and Problem Management is a rapidly growing area. Users now rely heavily on Help Lines, International Support Centers and the like.

  • Software Quality Assurance (SQA) Engineer - You need to know as much as the best technical support personnel. You need to be a problem solver, a detective, and sometimes even a Customer Service representative. You'll also need some basic programming skills, since more and more companies are beginning to rely on automated testing. The best SQA engineers understand a little (or a lot) about every aspect of computers, from building them to using them to programming them.
  • Software Engineer (Developer or Programmer) - To get a job at a top software shop such as Microsoft or Google, you'll need a degree in computer science and detailed understanding of the field. However getting a developer position in some small company may be easier. What do you need to know is the language in which you'll be programming. It is also important to know database fundamentals and (if programming for Windows) the Windows API. Knowing more than one programming language is very helpful. Understanding many of the basic fundamentals of computer science (e.g. linked lists, arrays, pointers, object oriented programming) will be essential in demonstrating your proficiency.
  • Business Analyst (Analyst or Systems Analyst or Analyst/Programmer or User Analyst) - This is a relatively new title, but the role is as "old as the hills". People can become a BA with any mix of business and computing skills. It is really a matter of looking at what the company is really after. A good BA should know the process from end to end. The BA is primarily the connection between the business and the developers. To get into this job, and into computing, good knowledge of a business is helpful. So, if you gain good knowledge through your job, and maybe do a computer course, you can get your foot in the door.

Find missing number in this progression: 15 26 34 51 ? 84 96 125 hh22@cox.net


The missing number is 61.
Look at perfect squares: (1,4,9),16, 25, 36, 49,64, 81,100,121
Then look at the given progression 15, 26, 34, 51, x, 84, 96,125
Take differences from the closest -1,+1, -2, +2, -3, +3, -4, +4

(15 is 1 less than 16 = 4 squared,
26 is 1 more than 25 = 5 squared,
34 is 2 less than 36 = 6 squared,
51 is 2 more than 49 = 7 squared,
61 is 3 less than 64 = 8 squared,
84 is 3 more than 81 = 9 squared,
96 is 4 less than 100 = 10 squared,
125 is 4 more than 121 = 11 squared)

I installed Petz 5 on my computer and when it's done loading, it says "The sound will not intalize." I went into the game, anhd the sound didn't work at all! Plz help!


First, please make sure that you have the latest firmware and drivers available for your CD/DVD-ROM drive. This can be done by visiting the CD/DVD-ROM manufacturers website.

Then, clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.

If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):

(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.

(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.


- Empty your recycle bin


- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start


- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.



- Before attempting to install the game, make sure that you have no programs running in the background or system tray.

(Windows XP / Vista)
Go to the Start menu, (and choose Run if using XP). Delete anything on the Open line that you'll find there, and type in the work MSCONFIG. Click on OK, and that will bring up a program called the System Configuration Utility.

Look down the list of startup items (not the tab labeled Startup), and choose Selective Startup (if it is not already selected). If you don't see this, make sure you've clicked on General, near the top of the window. Once you've chosen Selective Startup, uncheck 'Load Startup Items', and leave 'Process System.INI file' and 'Process Win.INI file' checked. Once you're done here, click OK, and let it reboot your computer.

Your Windows environment may look different and you may get an error relating to your sound device not working (ignore this for now). Try running the game again. If the game loads and seems to be working, the problem is most likely related to one or more programs you have scheduled to load with Windows. You can then revert the settings back the way they were, and in a trial and error fashion, disable some programs using the startup tab (in the msconfig utility) to try to find the culprit.


(Windows 98/ME)
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the close program window. End all open tasks EXCEPT Explorer and systray.



- If you still have problems installing, you may not have the necessary hard disk space to install the game. You will need to clean out unnecessary files on your hard drive or otherwise allocate more space if you wish to install and play.


- Try a safemode install.
1. Copy the contents of the disc to a new folder on your desktop.
2. Restart Windows in Safe Mode.
3. Run setup.exe from the setup folder in the new folder you created on your desktop.
4. Restart the computer in normal mode and try the game.

- If all else fails, your game disk may be scratched or damaged.
1. Inspect the underside of the CD closely.
2. If their are any smudge marks, dirt, or scratches, clean the disk.

NOTE: When cleaning CDs, wipe from the center of the disc to the edge using a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use a circular motion. Also, do not use paper cloth which can scratch the plastic and leave streaks.

3. Insert the CD and try installing again.
NOTE: Many common install problems are caused by scratched or damaged disks. If you think your game disk is damaged and needs to be replaced, please contact a Support Representative (Ask a Question tab above) to obtain replacement information as well as an RMA number.

What is the missing number in this logical series? 1, 2, 6, 42, 1806, ____???


Ans: 3263442

Each number in the progression is multiplied by itself plus that number

1*1+1=2
2*2+2=6
6*6+6=42
42*42+42=1806
so next number is the result of 1806*1806+1806=3263442

Work problem


Here is the answer:
Daisy did 2/5ths or %40 of the barn in those two days as she can do the whole lot in 5 days she did 2/5ths or %40 in 2 days so thats %40 of the barn done.
Didith did 2/8ths or %25 of the barn in those two days, 
so the amount of barn painted in the first two days is: 1/4 + 2/5 which equals %65 of the barn complete in the first two days. so there is %35 of the barn left to paint and only Daisy (who can paint %20 of the barn in one day) 
so to figure out how many days it takes Daisy to paint %35 of the barn this is what to do:
%20 = 1day %35 - %20 = %15 5x5x5x5 = 20 5x5x5 = 15 therefore it takes Daisy 1/4 of a day to paint %5 of the barn therefore it takes Daisy 3/4 of a day to paint %15 of the barn (i hope you are following me here!) 1 + 3/4 = one and three quarters of a day
Therefore it took Daisy one and three quarter days to paint the remaining %35 of the barn.
So it took Days one and three quarter days to finish the job after Didith left.
Hope this is helpful
