It's likely that the email is gone. If you were using an email application like Outlook, it may have been automatically saved to a Drafts folder. If not, it's likely lost. Regarding it turning off, that's a tough one. You may have accidentally hid a "sleep" key on your keyboard, if it has one. There also may be an overheating problem that caused your computer to shut off to prevent damage.

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."

How can I tell if my computer has a virus?


<ol> <li><span></span> A common symptom of a virus is much slower than normal computer performance. However, there can be other reasons for slow performance, <a href="/mshelp://windows/?id=5a2fccaa-2424-4646-b571-97b557e2c87b#gtmt_hard_disk_def"></a> that needs defragmenting, a computer that needs more memory (RAM)</li> <li><br /></li> <li><span>Are you getting unexpected messages, or are programs starting automatically?</span> Some viruses can cause damage to <span>Windows</span> or some of your programs. The results of this damage might include messages appearing unexpectedly, programs starting or closing automatically, or <span>Windows</span> shutting down suddenly.</li> <li><br /></li> <li><span>Is your modem or hard disk working overtime?</span> An e&#8209;mail virus works by sending many copies of itself by e&#8209;mail. One indicator of this is that the activity light on your broadband or external modem is constantly lit; another is the sound of your computer's hard disk continually working. These are not always symptoms of a computer virus, but when combined with other problems, can indicate a virus infection.</li></ol>

This desktop dell vostro turns itself on and off without the button being pushed. sometimes it makes it to windows, and seems to run just fine, then it goes to shutdown by itself... then turns itself back...


Well in the system Bios or setup there are options where you can have the computer turn itself on automatically at a certain time. However, the fact that yours is turning itself on and off seems to indicate that it is either over heating or it is running into an issue when trying to boot and it keeps recycling the boot process. There is an option that you can set that will turn off automatic restart on boot. Turn off the computer and then turn it on and start hitting F8 repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Scroll down through the options and you will probably see an option that lets you stop automatic restart on boot, and take it if it is there. This will allow you to actually see the error message that is causing your computer to reboot itself.

When i e-mail someone my e-mail shows to them but when i get mail back instead of my e-mail showing it's to national floors trend which is something i get e-mail's from time to time. how i can i correct...


Try adding a filter or "rule." If you don't wish to see these emails in your in box, just create a rule in whatever email client you use.

For example, if you use Outlook or Outlook Express, you create a rule that basically makes a sentence. Something like:

When I receive messages from "national floors trend," move them to the "spam" folder."

or "..., delete them."

Hope this helps.

Automatically rebooting computer after power failure


The bios settings turn the computer on automatically. I actually have mine set to turn on automatically in the morning before I get out of bed so it's already on when I get up. Watch what you see on your screen as you boot up the computer and do whatever it tells you to do to boot up in bios (typically by hitting the F2 or Del key). Once in bios, go to the power section. In the power setting you should see something pertaining to the modem. If you do NOT want it to power up automatically, choose the Disable option. If you DO want to power it up automatically, it will also ask for a time (day of month, hour, minute). If you set the day as 1, for example, it will power up on the 1st of the month at the time that is set. If you set the day of the month to zero (0), it will power up every day at that time.

Need to reregister account, after pc went down. need e mail settings to set up outlook express in order to get e mails. please send settings to my daughters e mail address tracylisa@btinternet.com


Many service providers have a link on their page that will automatically configure Outlook Express to receive e-mail. I would suggest that the first place to look is the main page for your service provider (Optonline, Time-Warner, Verizon, whatever) and find the tab for "support" or Frequently Asked Questions. Type in "e-mail" at the search box, and you should see some answer listed for "setting up my e-mail account (on my computer, or something like that.) Specific wording depends on your service provider.
Then, most providers have a link you can click that will run a program to automatically set it up for you.
Here's a page from Verizon, which will give you an idea of the process:
