IOLO software which is the company that makes System Mechanic has a very strong technique for testing serial #s before the software is installed. If the serial # fails that testing it will not be allowed to be installed. It is possible that IOLO has decided that your particular serial # is no longer valid due to possible use on the warez scene, i.e. it has been pirated. If that is the case then you will have to contact IOLO and let them know exactly where you got the software so they can futher investigate your purchase and the vericity of the agent you purchased from. Now you indicate that you have tried using this serial # several times and thus my next suggest may not work as a result, however it is still worth a try. TRY installing System Mechanic as shareware without the use of a serial #. With some softwares this will get into a limited mode of operation which may allow you to re-enter the serial # from the ' ABOUT ' screen. I doubt this will help with most IOLO softwares, but it is at least worth a shot. I have seen circumstances where trying to use an invalid serial
# can and will remove the future funtionality of IOLO software even with a GOOD serial #, meaning a person would have to remove all registry entries pertaining to IOLO software ( far beyond a simple de-installation ) before a ' good and valid ' serial # will effective. IOLO is very tough in this regard, one of the toughest around. One other thing that should be mentioned is the possibily of operating system corruption due to continued use of a bad serial #. While in most cases IOLO software would simply stop working, it is entirely possible that when it stops working it would also take the operating system with it. Other then the above circumstances, the only other possibility that I can think of for your serial not being validated is possibly a proxy issue if you are using a proxy or a firewall that is not letting communication with the IOLO website to occur. Please verify that your firewall, both hardware and software are permitting communication with the IOLO website

How to Change a Yahoo ID Name for a Chat Room |


INSTRUCTIONAL STEP TO FOLLOW
From the main page of Yahoo.com, click on the "More Yahoo! Services" option at the left side of the screen. In the pop-up screen, click on the"Chat" option. The following page will direct you to a place where you can download Yahoo! Messenger. Make sure you download the correct version that is compatible with your operating system, and that youclosely follow the appropriate steps for installing the chatting tool. Wait to be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID and password in order to sign on.You may already have a Yahoo! ID if you have previously signed up for a Yahoo! service. The majority of users typically have a Yahoo! ID from using Yahoo! Mail. You can sign on with the same user ID and password you use for your Yahoo! Mail if you would like. But keep in mind that members of a chat room might have easier access to finding out who you are. The safest and best option is to create an alternative ID name and password. Instead of signing into Yahoo! Messenger with the user ID you already have,click on the "Create Yahoo! ID" option at the bottom the Yahoo!Messenger page. A new screen should appear that prompts you to create an entirely new user ID. However, this time, only include the minimal information needed to create a user ID. For example, you do not need to include your alternative email. When finished, click on "Create MyAccount."Now that you have an alternate Yahoo! ID, only use your newly created user ID for when you enter a chat room. You can still sign onto Yahoo!Messenger using your normal Yahoo! ID to chat with trusted friends.Once you are signed on with your normal Yahoo! ID, you can switch to your alternate user ID before entering chat rooms. The following, final step will help you with this simple process. Clickon "Profile" in the top toolbar, then click on "My Profiles." Now clickon "Edit Profiles." You will be taken to your normal Yahoo! profile.Click on "Account Info" in the top, right-hand corner of the page.Click on "Edit/Create Aliases" on the right-hand side of the page. You can now add the new Yahoo! ID you have created. Once this is complete,go back to Yahoo! Messenger and click on "Join a Yahoo! Chat Room" frothe "File" option in top toolbar. At the top of the chat-room pop-up,you now have the option to switch your Yahoo! ID before entering a room.

After all you need to BURN the files in a blank CD or order for mail shipment.

Then we going to BOOT the system id the CD drive.

Office Suite


Office serial number is on a sticker on placed on user manual back cover. and looks like this : "FCK1W-RKWW3-BCH44-FWW81-14RH2"
If it is missing, then you need to go back to retailer or call the toll free number shown in the box.
If the box was not sealed in plastic then your serial number may have been stolen.
