PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS - I'm starting
this section because of a problem I've recently had and
to help others who have pc issues:
course there are hundreds of reasons why this might be
the case, however I just wanted to mention that an
often forgetten cause of slow windows can be a
(Incidentally, windows will load slower the more fonts
you have installed)
Further info and what I've done so far:
R removing unused software and files
Removing process' that don't need to run in the background
Changing what programs load on startup
Websites with Flash content issue: Wasn't
able to view flash content on various sites and got
the their standard, 'please download the latest version
of Flash player to view flash content' message.
Now, I knew I already had the latest
flash player on my pc and even when I'd download it again,
I still wasn't able to see flash and got the
same 'please get flash...' messages.
After much grief, I realised it was because one of my
pc 'cleaning' (specifically registry cleaners) programs
was removing regsitry files needed for playing flash content.
* DOWNLOAD A FLASH UNINSTALLER
* USE IT TO COMPLETELY REMOVE FLASH PLAYER.
* REINSTALL FLASH PLAYER OFF ANY WEBSITE
THAT PROMPTS YOU TO. (MAY
STOP IT HAPPENING AGAIN: DON'T USE "RegScrub(XP)"
- THIS SEEMS TO BE THE OFFENDING CLEANER. USE
WINDOWS REG CLEANER OR GET "Easy Cleaner" (WHICH
IS SO GOOD FOR MUCH MORE THAN REG-CLEANS AND IS VERY EASY

E-MAIL PROBLEM (Eudora)
(I.e. RECIEPIANTS NOT RECEIVING SENT MAIL)
SPECIFICALLY TO Eudora 7 USERS, but is
likely to occur with many e-mail programs that are basic/simple/freeware.
took me over a week to find the cause of the
problem and over 25 test e-mails, over 10 e-mails
back and forth with Eudora helpdesk and 3
phone calls to my ISP (Iinet
- who eventually helped me isolate the problem)
DO NOT USE 'COMPLEX' CODE (HTML, DYNAMIC, STYLED
TEXT ETC) IN YOUR SIGNATURE.
will vary (I was able to have text links,
and occasionally a linked image would work)...
The killer, for me, was the linked banner
in combination with text and linked text in my signature.
STOP IT HAPPENING AGAIN: I now don't
use Linked Images in my signature.
ON EUDORA 7 (PAID MODE):
DOES NOT SUPPORT THAT KIND OF CODE IN
(Even though they claim to! - The reason I baught
'Paid Mode' is specifically to include clickable banners
in my e-mail signatures)
Eudora tech support:
"That code is too advanced for Eudora - Eudora
is not able to convert this type of code."
the code was very very basic HTML and nore does Eudora
7 have any way to edit the HTML of the e-mails you are
say spending over $20 to be able to use hyperlinked images
in your signature and then NOT being able to do so makes
Eudora a poor software provider!
this will help any future Eudora user's headaches!
