    Hi Marp: If you haven't looked into them yet,...

    Hi Marp:

    If you haven't looked into them yet, LibreOffice now includes native PDF editing. I tried it once, but have Acrobat Pro, so that was easier for me and I didn't try again, but its a...
  2. WinXp to Win7-32-bit is a good option

    Hi Zee:

    FWIW: I recently upgraded the last remaining WinXP box (an ASUS netbook) we had. The system was limited to 4GB of RAM, so we just went with Win7-Home-32-Bit. Although the popular...

    Hi All:

    FWIW: I have tried the WaterFox 64-bit recompile of FireFox and it was okay for awhile, but support seems to have stopped. I moved on to CyberFox (64-bit) and it works great for me,...

    Hi Beiland:

    Lots of great advice was offered here.

    FWIW: I finally just converted my remaining XP box to Win7-Pro-32-bit. Since it only supported 2GB of RAM there was no advantage to going...

    Hi All:

    Just wanted to update you all... I finally got a cheap off-brand Nvidia GEforce FX550 AGP card with 256 DDR RAM and just installed it. Works like a charm. That was the problem -- the...

    Hi Decann:

    Don't give up all hope. Yes, the instructions are sometimes too vague, but with a little imagination one can usually find the right approach. I must admit that I, too, did not have...

    Thanx for your feedback. I guess if I can find a more modern, but not to expensive AGP card at the local Fry's I'll give that a shot. Not much of a selection of AGP or PCI cards left there these...
  8. Odd behavior of video players on new Win7-Pro-Sp1-32-bit upgrade

    Hi All:

    Here's an odd one. Although it took some effort and frustration, when upgrading my spare old XP box, I finally found compatible video drivers for my old ATI Radeon 7500 that work in...

    Hi Bruce and 3-Star:

    Funny thing is that I just ran into the same problem on a fresh install of Win7-32-bit-Sp1 (ISO from TechNet) upgrading my last remaining XP box. The FixIt worked,...

    Other things to consider

    Hi All:

    I'm surprised no one also mentioned that you should always use a known good surge protector. If you had one before, its probably blown, too, so replace it with a heavy duty model. At the...
  11. Final Status (for now!)

    Hi All:

    Thanx to you all for your suggestions. Here's what I found:

    1) Our existing GoDaddy account was running a little under $50/yr for up to 100/2GB email addresses (we use just 4-5 at the...

    Hi Ruirib:

    Good point. I'm not anxious to use GMail, either, for the same reason. I've been looking at Rackspace, and it looks like a very good possibility to me.

    Hi Ruirib:

    No way will I allow ANY Micro$$oft connections to these machines, other than M$$ update. As far as Gmail, I wasn't aware that I could use that with my existing domain addresses. That...

    Hi Mr.Phelps:

    Thanx for the mission-impossible suggestion. I will look into it today. Best wishes.
  17. Looking at replacement for GoDaddy email with same domain usage

    Hi All:

    Apparently GoDaddy email has had numerous problems the last few days (and several times this month for us), and we are fed up. My wife's business uses Thunderbird as our email client, and...

    PDF Xchange Viewer migrates to Editor

    Hi All:

    FWIW: Tracker Software recently announced that it is cancelling support for PDF-Xchange Viewer, in favor of their new PDF-Xchange Editor (which they call v.3.0). There will continue to...
  19. Latest svchost issue and destroyed XPMode was the last straw...

    Hi All:

    FWIW: I migrated all my users to Win7-64-bit, except for one "research" box still running XP. I also have one client loaner laptop with WinXP (because their "tech support" person didn't...

    Thanx, guys. That's pretty much what I expected, but just hadn't seen it stated anywhere before. I appreciate your quick responses.

  21. What happens to Virtual Machines running XP when support expires?

    Hi All:

    I don't think I've seen this anywhere, and the answer may be obvious, but what exactly is the situation for those running XP on any virtual machines (XP-Mode on Win7, VirtualBox, etc.) in...

    Many thanx, Medico. This did the trick. Aside from needing to free up "disk space" on the virtual drive the install is running like a charm.
  23. Cannot upgrade Win8 Ent to Win8.1 in Virtual Box VM

    Hi All:

    This is an odd one. I have been using Oracle's Virtual Box VMs for awhile now, with few problems -- especially in the latest releases. Last Winter I set up a VBox for Window-8, using...

    Nitro Pro and NitroReader are big disappointments.
    Based on your recommendation, I downloaded NitroReader, which has a 64-bit version, to use with 64-bit CyberFox (FF clone), as Acrobat is still...
