    jtwoods, thanks for the link. It appears that, as ruirib noted (thank you, ruirib), backup from the boot disk should always be equal to or faster than from an installed program, simply because the...

    Acronis True Image 2014 question

    Running Win 7 Pro Sp1.

    I have a paid version of Acronis True Image 2014. I have not installed the program on my computer, but I have used the Acronis ISO to burn a bootable disk that I use to make...

    Coochin, placing the shortcut in either of those two folders puts it under "All Programs" in the start menu (yes, I confirmed that). As mentioned in an earlier reply, I want the shortcut to show on...

    Thanks, Jerry. My task bar is already more cluttered than I'd like (although not nearly filled).
    I'd really just like to click Start/Address Book, which is how I had it set up. I just need to...

    bbearren, thanks for that info.
    When I try your suggestion, the item shows up in my start menu under "All Programs", whether I create the shortcut in the Start Menu/Programs folder, or directly in...

    RG, thanks for your suggestion. However, I have no problem with displaying the start menu item (i.e., plenty of room in the Pinned area). The issue is that the start menu icon periodically can no...

    If I right-click Address Book.doc and drag it to the start button and hover, I do not see a "Pin to Start Menu" option. Same with a left-click. However, if I hold down the Shift key while...

    jwoods, "Pin to Start Menu" never shows as an option when I do as you suggested. I must manually move the cursor where I want it on the start menu; when I release the mouse button, the icon shows in...

    bbearren, if I create a shortcut, and then put it in my start menu, I must leave the shortcut where it was created (in this case, on my desktop). If I delete the shortcut, the start menu reference no...

  11. Why do I periodically lose this Start Menu item?

    I have an address book saved as a Word 2003 document (entitled, oddly enough, Address Book).
    I navigate to the folder where my Word files are saved, and drag the file "Address Book.doc" to my start...

    Peter, I occasionally run across the same problem (wish I knew why). I find that re-booting returns your administrative status (again, wish I knew why).

    Hi, Roland.

    Well, I tried to open an email account with Juno, but I couldn't bring myself to provide all of the invasive information they wanted (name, address, current e-mail, age, income, etc.)....

    Roland, thanks, I will look at Juno. I'm hoping it just sits there and minds it's own (not my) business until I need to use it, but I'm also not naive enough to believe that'll ever happen.
    Thanks...

    Thanks for all your replies.

    Why do I need my own domain? All I want to be able to do is open a browser on the web (from whichever ISP I happen to be with, or wherever I have web access), and open...

    Need suggestions for a new email account

    I'd like to open a new, web-based email account, so that I can have an account that will follow me if I change service providers. I looked into gmail, but being Google, I find it to be too intrusive...

    Paul, I did use Windows Explorer. If it was a virus, it sure evaded my virus scans.

    jwoods, thanks for your reply.

    I've already done what you suggest, which was also suggested in the link supplied by ldb (except, as mentioned earlier, I deleted the tasks, rather than disabling...

    Paul, the file I deleted was the one named in the error message, ProgramDataUpdater (I can't remember if it had an extension). Perhaps it's just a Task title? In any case, once navigated to it,...

    Thanks to both for the replies.
    ldb, I followed the directions in the link you provided, and deleted (rather than disabled) all tasks listed, since I'm not at all collecting information to send to...
  21. Why do I get this error message, and how can I fix it?

    Win 7 Pro, SP1.

    When I go to Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools and double-click on Task Scheduler, the Task Scheduler appears to open, but I get the attached error message.

    I don't know...

    Hi. Thanks for all the replies.

    To clarify, I'm happy with the Comcast modem. As for the money I would save by not renting from Comcast (i.e., buying my own modem), that won't happen for the...

    dogknees, it's just that I don't like any program that rummages through my computer without my permission, whether or not it alters anything.

    As an extreme example, the NSA doesn't alter your...
