Chrome will not open


Harvey,
You could try this:

-first, delete your current installation of Chrome,

-then, open Windows Explorer, and depending on your operating system, go to: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
for Windows XP

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
for Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8

-Go to the folder "Default" and rename this folder to "Backup Default".

-Now download and install Chrome again.

-Start it up. There should be a new folder "Default", created when you started using the browser.
If you value the data in your old profile: you can try copying them from the backup folder to the new profile, but some of it may be corrupted.
But at least your Bookmarks are not lost:
-go to the "Backup Default" folder, and -locate the "Bookmarks.bak" file. -copy it to the "Default" folder, and -rename it "Bookmarks". All the other old browser data is preserved in the "Backup default" folder, but transfering it to your "Default" folder may corrupt Chrome. Tread carefully, if at all..

IPad How to transfer or sync content to your computer


iTunes, iBooks, and App Store content


By default, iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content on your device will automatically transfer to your computer. If it doesn't, you can use the Transfer Purchases option in iTunes to ensure that all iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content is transferred to your iTunes library. Learn about transferring purchased content.

Photos

You can import photos or videos into your computer that you have saved on your iPad (for example, in Mail or Safari, or when using the iPad Camera Connection Kit).

Note: You cannot transfer photos that you synced to your device from a computer. You can only transfer photos or videos to your computer that you saved on the iPad itself.

Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, and Notes

You can sync contacts, calendars, bookmarks, and notes with applications on your computer across multiple computers and devices. You can find the sync settings for these in iTunes on your computer. With your iPad connected to the computer, select your iPad (under Devices). Then click the Info tab.

Migrating XP to Windows 7 (Using your Network)


If you are thinking of buying a new PC and trying to replace an old XP system to a new Windows 7, you might want to transfer your old favorite files to your new computer. Either transferring through a Easy Transfer cable, Network, or via USB

This procedures assumes that your old XP is still working and connected to your home or office network. and your new Win 7 is also connected as well to your networkBoth of your system and computer must be connected to the same network, either in the office or home, because it is easier to transfer files in this way, effectively and efficiently, this is practical than using USB flash drive or any external disk, though the process is similar.

Ensure that you have the Win7 InstallationDVD, or the Easy Transfer Software fromMicrosoft website, ready to be installed on your XP system. but be aware this is for 64 bit version system only, please visit Microsoft website search and download Windows easy Transfer and select "x86" in the file name for 32 bit or 64 bit, install this the same way you've done with ordinary software. In your Win 7 however, this software is automatically installed so do not bother yourself.

In this instance you will be asked if whether you want to transfer your whole data from all user accounts or to just specific user only, in this process you can also select specific files to transfer, but in order to transfer all accounts, both of your XP and WIN 7 must be logged as an Administrator.

So this procedure is Migrating through NETWORK, the other two procedure is Easy Cable Transfer and USB, external Hard disk.

1- Prepare both systems and ensure both are connected to the network and working, Start the XP computer and log in as an Admin
2- IN XP , Open up the and start the Windows Easy Transfer DVD, and look or browse for SupportMigwiz. if you have downloaded this simply select Start> All Program> Windows Easy Transfer for Win 7, it will load automatically. Simply read the screen for additional info and click Next
3- A new screen pops out and please select a Network as an option to transfer
4- Click This is my OLD COMPUTER, Still in XP Windows Easy Transfer will then generate a password for the transferring process, because in order to transfer files through the network you will be required to enter a password (record the KEY)

caae297.jpg

After you enter the key, at this time Windows Easy Transfer makes the connection and scans the Windows XP system's contents and components. Once this is over, you can practically choose which data you want to transfer, or you want to import, just like customizing the items you wish to transfer. After you have decided which is which, click Transfer, then a progress bar will appears the process occurs.

The final screen will then show up indicating the process is complete. Confirm to see if the file you have chosen was actually transferred, then close all window, including the Easy Transfer Windows.

Restart your computer, please. Congratulations!

How can I transfer my bookmarks to a new computer?


The simplest method to transfer bookmarks between computers is by "signing in" to Chrome on the first computer. All of your Chrome browser data and preferences (including bookmarks) will be saved into your Google account, and that will be available whenever you sign in again on any other computer.

Here's how to sign in: In the Chrome web browser, click on the wrench icon (upper right corner), then select "Sign in to Chrome".

1_1_2012_2_46_16_am.gif
Then enter your Google account user name and password.

All of your Chrome bookmarks, extensions and other preferences will then be saved into your Google account online.

Then on your new computer, install the Chrome browser, and again "sign on" with the same Google account. Your Chrome bookmarks, extensions and other preferences will be retrieved from your Google account.

http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=185277&topic=1693469

Alternatively, you can export your bookmarks from the Chrome browser on the old computer. Click on the wrench icon, select "Bookmark manager"; then select Organize > Export bookmarks. That will generate an HTML file. Copy that file to the new computer (e.g., by using a flash drive). Then on the new computer, install the Chrome browser, select "Bookmark manager"; then select Organize > Import bookmarks.

Hi pjhmulder
Assuming MS Money 2001 and 2003 are compatible with W 7 , you could install MS Money 2003 on the new computer and copy the files from MS Money 2001 on the old computer to MS Money 2003 on the new computer . Make sure you don't erase the MS Money 2001 files before transfer has successfully been executed .

Dear Friend
I will rather suggest you for the LAN instead of data transfer cable. By using LAN you can share Data, Documents, pictures, printers, faxes, and storage devices at High Speed.

Both Windows XP and Windows 7 have a "Settings and File Transfer Wizard". Run the wizard on the "old" computer, and say that you are running it on the old computer, and it will save all your files.
Transport the files to your new computer (DVD-writer or USB memory-stick) and run the wizard, and say that you are running it on the new computer, and "import" your files & settings.

My guess is that the engineers at PTC haven't figured out how make their products compatible with Windows 7! I painfully found that MathCad 14, 13, 11 do not work on Windows 7 (I have Windows 7 Pro)! They install, but the application can't even start! However, MathCad 2000 does work on this outstanding platform; I was amazed! You could use that version in the meantime, hoping that PTC will solve this problem soon! Or install Mathcad 14 on the virtual PC that works in XP mode.
