  1. Hey Vile_DR, thanks a bunch, everythings back to normal now. I owe you man! Mahalo to the max!
  2. Thanks Vile_DR. I think I'm on the right track. It's quite late here so I'm going to get some rest and continue tomorrow. I'll let you know how it turns out.
  3. I use MS Outlook for email and FireFox for my browser. My problem is that clicking on any hyperlink in Outlook, doesn't seek out and open in FireFox. Instead, I get a "Locate Link Browser" window and I don't know what to do with it. The only way I can get the hyperlink to work is to Cut & Paste to my browser. If I set IE and OE as default browser and email, the hyperlinks work normally with IE & OE only, but I don't want to use IE and OE. The hyperlinks used to work regardless of which email program or browser was defaulted. Does anyone know what's going on? WinXP Home SP2 (build 2600) 2.0 GHTZ P4 40 GB HDD 80 GB(40/40) Ext. HDD 1.0 GB Memory Mozilla Firefox MS Outlook MS IE & OE ASquared AVAST Ad-Aware Spybot S&D SpywareBlaster Mahalo!
  4. A tip/suggestion: Whenever you download a program, save the installer. That way if you ever have a problem, such as this, it's just a matter of falling back to a previous version. This is the way I do it: In the My Documents folder, I have a folder named Installers. In that folder, I have folders for each program; Firefox, Ad-aware, Spybot, Irfanview, etc.... In each of these folders, I have a folder for each version; Firebird v0.7, Firefox v0.8, Firefox v0.9, Firefox v0.9.2, etc... In each of these folders, I put the installers, and a Notepad doc. In the Notepad doc, I put all the important info about the installer, that I copy & paste from the website. Then you can burn your Installers folder, when you burn your back-up disk. That way, if you ever have a problem with a newer version of a program, or have to reinstall your OS, you have all of your programs on disk, and ready to install. No need to waste time re-downloading all of your programs (especially if you're on dial-up). Just my $.02 worth. Hey, thanks tg, I like your system. I'm going to redo my My Documents file like yours. I still haven't found a link to the older sygate version though.
  5. I had the same problem as suzanne, tried to find the old version with no luck. If anyone has the url for the older version please share it with us. I'm currently at the mercy of Windows firewall and about ready to try zonealarm but prefer sygate. Thank you!
  6. I use "one click shutdown" with XPHome and it works well but where can I look to find the keyboard shortcuts? Thanks!
  7. ClocX is analog with "Hour", "Minute", and "Second" hands. It opens to the desk top on bootup, has a good number of skins to choose from, you can size it and place it anywhere on your desktop. The date can be placed on the clock face too! =EDIT= It's free so it won't cost you anything but time to try.
  8. Thanks Snaxe. Are the link formats here different from those used over on the G4 tech forum?
  9. Hey X-Cannon , try [L=ClocX]http://clocx.fi.cz/[/L]. I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but I've been using ClocX for almost a year and like it very much. It's got many skins to choose from and other features I'm sure you'll find interesting. Enjoy! =EDIT= Oops!....don't know what happened to the link. Anyway just go to: http://clocx.fi.cz/
  10. How does one add programs to the "All Programs" list. Some programs I downloaded did not get listed there. Thanks
  11. Thanks a lot, I'll have her check the settings and let you guys know how it went. Appreciate all the help.
  12. A friend can't send messages in OE. They go as far as the 'Outbox'. She get's the following 'Error Message:' Error Message: Your SMTP server has not responded in 180 seconds. Would you like to wait another 180 seconds for the server to respond? Account: pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com(1) Server: smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com She says OE has never worked and sbcglobal techies couldn't fix it so she's been using yahoo mail. I suspect the setup is probably not right but I don't know enough to be sure. Anyone have a fix? Thank you! She runs: XPHome P4 2.0 HDD 40G RAM 256 DSL sbcglobal
  13. I just began using Tbird 4-5 days ago and I like this one so well I've made it my primary email client. If you're familiar with IE or OE you'll feel right at home with Tbird. I've tried others including the new Gmail and have used OE for over a year and I vote Tbird. It's got everything OE has and more but you need to try it and decide for yourself.
