I hate to bother you with such a
trivial thing as this, but perhaps others have the same problem. Some time ago,
my email program (Mozilla) and my Google program began something strange. On
occasion, clicking a link in one of them will not result in opening the
indicated link, but rather in an error message that states that a "related" file
could not be "saved" because "the source file could not be found".
Here is a solution to yet another
annoying feature in Windows. By default the "Open File" dialogue box stubbornly
opens in "list" view. Starting in "details" view is better in many cases, but
that option can not be forced as the default action within Windows.
Noticed the discussion of Ubuntu in your newsletter (
http://langa.com/newsletters/2006/2006-09-28.htm#3 ). Thought I would
share my experiences with Linux. I have been shopping for a Linux
implementation that could be used by a computer layman. Many are usable
right off the boot/install live cd. My favorites used to be Knoppix and
Kanotix. However; the big hangup is installation of additional software. As
you know lots is available but after downloading you need to be a linux
terminal whiz to just find where you downloaded the software, then use the
correct commands (which you must scour the internet to find) to extract,

and I started computers with HDOS and CPM working exclusively from the

Fred: I run Diskeeper 10 to defrag my hard
disks and upon completion get the following message: "Due to the high MFT usage,
it is recommended that you expand the MFT on this volume. Use the Frag Shield
option in the Diskeeper configuration properties to configure this volume to a
larger size." I’ve read a few items about changing the MFT and quite frankly it
scares me to make changes. Have you had any experience or reports about using
the Diskeeper option to modify the MFT? Thanks. —Bob
Fred, Thanks for all you do. I look
forward to each issue. I have a question:
Every one of my partitions contains a folder "System Volume Information". Curious about what’s in it and how much of my resources it is using, I click on
it and receive the reply "System Volume Information in not accessible. Access
is denied". I can’t read it, and I can’t delete it. What’s this all about?
