  1. Because Cipher is already part of Windows 7....

    Because Cipher is already part of Windows 7. Ergo, nothing to buy, and nothing to download. But it's a poorly documented part of Windows 7.

    Whoever at Microsoft decided not to put EFS into Home...
  2. Encrypting a file with Command.com's CIPHER

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium, for which EFS is not supported. Help says I should try to work around this by using Command.com's CIPHER command. But when I type "cipher /?", I don't understand the...

    My homepage is https://login.live.com/et cetera, for both the Standard User and Administrator versions of Firefox.
  4. Roderunner, I'm not sure I understand your...

    Roderunner, I'm not sure I understand your question. I'm accessing FF on my desktop computer, no special hardware or procedures.
  5. I just did a housekeeping day in which I ran...

    I just did a housekeeping day in which I ran Windows Update and CCleaner both, so I don't know which is to blame.

    I have one Hotmail account that I use a lot. The reason that I like it is that if...
  6. I have not disabled anything; everything in...

    I have not disabled anything; everything in Windows is in default mode.

    I don't know what the Event logs are, or what I should check them for, or how to check them. Please explain.
  7. No, everything is as it was before.

    No, everything is as it was before.

    I just tried an unsuccessful experiment.

    I switched users to my Administrator-privilege account, found the "Command Prompt" icon, right-clicked on that, and chose "Run as Administrator." Then I...

    Mercy, that idea makes me really nervous, enough so that it would be my back-against-the-wall, Hail Mary last resort. Because wiping out all restore points would mean that I couldn't undo a Windows...

    Nope, it's a Compaq Presario computer bought November 2009, with W7 preinstalled, and 400-plus Gb on the hard drive.
  11. Yes, same drive. And sometimes, the same file. ...

    Yes, same drive. And sometimes, the same file.

    About ten minutes ago, I opened up a folder and 1) right-clicked on a file that I know had a previous version. 2) Instant "No previous version...

    I would appreciate if you could try the following test (I am at work now on Windows XP so cannot test myself.)


    Create a new file that has no previous versions.
    See if windows "searches" when...
  13. Did you read the FAQ? Yes. How do you...

    Did you read the FAQ?

    Yes.

    How do you expect the previous version to be created by Windows Backup or a restore point?

    Restore point.

    Are you attempting to find a previous version before...
  14. Let's presume that when Windows 7 searches for...

    Let's presume that when Windows 7 searches for previous versions, it finds them. The key words are, "When Windows 7 searches."

    Sometimes Windows 7 doesn't start the search for previous versions,...
  15. 1) Because I myself changed the file. Ergo,...

    1) Because I myself changed the file. Ergo, there's at least one previous version on the hard drive somewhere.
    2) Because sometimes "Previous Versions" does in fact do a search, and I get the...
  16. Oh, when it does the Search, it always tells me...

    Oh, when it does the Search, it always tells me the truth. But sometimes it skips the search and immediately (and wrongly) says "No previous versions available." Obviously that's a bug, but how do I...
  17. Sometimes when I click on the Tab, it immediately...

    Sometimes when I click on the Tab, it immediately says "No previous versions available." Sometimes when I click on the Tab, it says "Searching," then it lists the previous versions. When it's lying...

    Okay, now I have a new problem. I backed up both the MP3 files and the album art onto a data DVD. The same folder in "My Music" becomes (part of) the same folder on the data DVD. Then once the data...

    I've saved a bunch of MP3 files onto my hard drive, and when I play them in WMP, I see the album art as 300x300 pixels. Now recently I backed up these MP3 files onto a data DVD, but during playback...

    I tried using CMD.exe from my Administrator account, and typed in the line as you suggested. But I got an error message that puzzles me-- "You must be an administrator running a console session in...

    W7 came pre-installed on my computer, but I've made the recommended backups. I have a CD-R labeled "Repair Disk Windows 7 64-bit" and 3 DVD-Rs that are each labeled "Compaq-Windows 7 Recovery Disk X...

    Oh geez, this is embarrassing.

    After a Windows restart, they both run fine. The thought of restarting Windows and checking again never crossed my mind.

    I recently downloaded some new fonts. Acting as Administrator, I right-clicked on the fonts and chose "Install," then I verified that they were copied into c:\Windows\Fonts. They are there where I...
