    Re: Windows XP Update (WinXP SP2)

    Thanks, John, that seems to have worked for me, although I had to change my IE Security/Internet settings to Default. However, I wonder if this compromises anything, or should I set them back to the...

    Windows XP Update (WinXP SP2)

    I am unable to access Windows Update via IE 6.0. No matter how I enter http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ in my browser (IE 6.0 SP2), the page that URL delivers is completely blank. I seem to be...

    Re: Password Use for Update (WinXP Pro)

    Great site, Joe. Thanks. I tried the easy fix it described, but got no result. I suspect my Zone Alarm Pro firewall may be part of the problem, but I'd rather not screw with the Registry as MS...

    Re: Password Use for Update (WinXP Pro)

    Thanks, Dave, for your advice, but I feel a bit stupid, since I can't find a way to the Administrator account. Under user accounts, however, I am listed as the "Computer Administrator" (see...

    Thanks for your response, but I'm not quite sure what you're referring to. I have Win XP Pro, but there's no "Settings" option under the Start Button. Are you referring to Win98? if so, I don't...

    Password Use for Update (WinXP Pro)

    I am unable to access Windows Update because I am asked for a PW to get in, but never created one. I am the only user of my machine, and therefore am also the administrator. I have not registered...

    What is "Meadco License Manager" and why would it be installed on my Win XP Pro Start Menu as "Meadco Security Manager?" As near as I can figure out Meadco (http://www.meadroid.com/sm_intro.asp) has...

    Thanks, SMBP, for all the info on the "Send To" feature (already set up what I lamented as not being available, thanks to you), and the other features and links. However, as you can see from my...

    I've just started using WinXP, and may not be getting this right, but I can't get Windows Explorer to retain the formatting I give it. That is, window size, right side headings, and...

    Oops! I spoke too soon. The update took (at least the Office products I use -- Word, FrontPage, and Excel -- all now show up as SP-3), but I still get the same error page when I check the...
  17. Re: Office 2000 SP3 Won't Install (Office 2000 SP2 Pro)

    Thanks. That seems to have worked without a hitch, although I still wonder why I couldn't do the update directly as I had done before.

    Thanks for the response. I more or less have given up trying to do anything more since managing to get the "Right-Click/Open in New Window" menu option installed. It's not quite as convenient as...

    BRAVO!!!
    And many, many thanks.
    I don't have what I used to have -- God knows how that might be accomplished! -- but the "right-click/Open in New Window" route will certainly give me back most...

    I haven't had much experience adding things to the registry, but I think I followed your instructions properly. Using Edit/New/Key I added "Open in New Window" to the "Internet Shortcut/shell" key,...

    Re: Open in new window (6.0.2800.1106)

    I should also add that double-clicking on an Internet Shortcut icon on the desktop also doesn't open a new window. Instead, it opens its URL in the first-created IE window, even if there are other...
