Some users may experience slow performance when opening office files (Excel, Word, Power Point, etc) by double clicking the file, but opening the file via File->Open is quick.
The solution is to open File Types, select the office extensions experiencing the problem click “Advanced” and select the “Open” action and edit. At the end of the path add “%1″. The path would look like this
“<Installation Folder>\Microsoft Office\Office12\EXCEL.EXE” /e “%1″
Notice the quotation marks.

If you receive a prompt to login as guest when you try to access a workgroup computer that has Windows XP follow the steps on this website.
Does anyone know why this happens sometimes? Not every Windows XP Pro is setup this way.
If you are trying to install Kaspersky and during the compatability check it prompts you to uninstall LiveUpdate even though LiveUpdate has been uninstalled, it may be a registry entry that is stopping the installation.
Fortunately a google search found provided me with this link and it has solved this problem for several of my clients.
If you the resolution of your monitor changes to VGA(640×480) during Windows startup, it may be a problem with Seagate Dashboard.
I found this after going through the painful process of disabling startup programs to find which was the cause, as by disabling all made the symptom disappear.
Re-installing the application fixed the problem. Seagate Dashboard works, and no more VGA resolution during startup.
If anyone else has experienced this, try this fix and report if it worked for you.
After removing a virus, you may find that double clicking any program will result in an open-with dialog box.
This can be easy fixed by running the following registry files.
These are particularly useful in this scenario since trying to open Regedit will result in the same dialog box.
I have been playing around with my droid 2 since the update from Froyo to Gingerbread came out. Many features are now working properly, like exchange emails and imap emails do not show twice and do not trigger an endless loop of notification sounds, but the most noticeable change is the longevity of battery charge.
I have an exchange account and 3 imap accounts, and a gmail account. With Froyo, enabling push emails made the battery run out in 3 hours. I had to keep my phone charging at my desk and in my car.
After upgrading to Gingerbread, I have gone 12hrs without charging. I only charge my phone during the night, and during the day I do not worry about charging it.
If you are getting the following error when running a PHP script that relies on Curl

Received the new Market update and I am now able to download Netflix on my Droid2 Froyo Verizon 2.3.20.A955.Verizon.en.US
I am able to look through my instant queue and have watched Futurama, National Geographic documentaries, and Blade 2. I assume all the other movies are playable.
Interestly, I did not have to add/activate a device to my netflix account. I was one of the few for which Netlfix was not available since its May 13 release. Now I can vouche it is working. I believe some of you with Droid 2 Global and Droid X had similar dificulties, hope this update works for you too.
If you advertise on craigslist, then spambots searching for emails in the listings find your email and send you spam. This happens within hours of posting your ad on craigslist and continues to happen as long as your ad remains posted. Now craigslist charges very little to nothing for posting an ad, so the return on investment is positive in the end, you just have to be willing to receive spam.
Now lets analyse the same situation in Adwords. This is a pay-per-click system, and the clicks you pay for are not only going toward new clients, they are also being part of soliciting. Our company manages Adwords accounts, we use Google analytics in conjunction with Livezilla (a realtime website monitoring system) to monitor our visitors and how they got to us. Lately we have noticed a disturbing trend. We tell our clients that when executing an Adwords campaign it must account for a percentage of clicks made by the competition, but now we have to also include clicks made by solicitors, which are mainly SEO solicitors.
This new trend has become very costly to most small businesses and some medium size businesses.
The purpose of this post is to discuss a solution that Google may implement to increase the click quality that still makes their shareholders happy.
