Fred, I recently upgraded a hard drive in my
laptop and did a clean install. Since I use Outlook Express, I wanted to
transfer all of my mailboxes, rules, filters, signatures, etc. Some can be done
from OE but rules, signatures etc. have to be done through the registry. Below
was the best source I found on how to do it. You may know of a better one, but
either way the information may be useful to other LangaList subscribers who are
upgrading or want to copy their settings to another machine. —Bruce

You’ve probably already written about
this issue but I sure would appreciate knowing what to do. I have several files
that are duplicated. In some cases I may have up to 10 copies of the same file.
I must have set up some kind of backup, but now I’ve created a monster. Is there
any program that can identify duplicated files so that I can scan my system and
get rid of them? Please advise. PS: You are one of the "Best" Web sources
around. Keep up the excellent work. —Lisa
Fred: I have depended on your clear and
accurate advice over the past few years, but I don’t think this issue has been
covered. My kids are severely becoming teenagers and I am looking for a little
help in taming the wily Web.
Fred, I use dual LCD monitors with my
Windows XP Pro system. I have a custom built system designed for speed and use
it for investment analysis.

Hi Fred! Great to have you back in the
chair. I look forward to the LangaList every week and having been having
withdrawals for the last month or so <g>. I moved interstate at the same time
that you did, so I can empathize with the rigmarole of packing, moving and
Hello Fred. Can you help me? How can I
get rid of the pop-up "Internet Explorer Script Error"? This will not let me
read some web pages no matter how hard I try. It just keeps coming back every
time I say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or try to delete (x) it. Thanks, —Fran
