Problems sending mail using BTInternet address in Outlook Express?
This problem has been bugging me for some time, I have my hotmail and my aol emails working fine in Outlook Express but no matter what I did I could not send mail using my BTinternet address. I finally solved this today by changing the pop3 and smtp settings from both saying mail.btinternet.com to pop3.mail.yahoo.co.uk smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk.
Update: OK just checked and got an error - what you need to do is just change the smtp one to yahoo.co.uk not the first one.keep that as the original mail.btinternet.com and jobs a goodun, can send and recieve perfectly.
Problem connecting to internet after Microsoft update?
I cannot believe this problem after being a devoted Zonealarm user for years, this problem is MASSIVE. I mean if your internet stops connecting you are buggared to put it simply. Now luckily I remembered reading somewhere that this was a Zonealarm issue but can you imagine the amount of people who must have been ringing helplines and even so far as taking their pc's in to be repaired. Even I ( yes I know Im blonde) spent a few hrs trying to fiddle about with router settings etc before I recalled the zonealarm thing I'd read.
Anyway, if this has happened to you you don't need to uninstall zonealarm, just change its firewall setting from high to medium and voila problem is solved.
This is what I've done but some sites are saying this is a bad thing to do i.e reducing your security settings and what they recommend one does is to update the zonealarm applications that you have eg firewall, security suite, anti spyware etc etc. Apparently this solves the problem too.
Weird file missing error when updating windows 2000 to windows xp?
This was a weird one when recently updating an old pc from windows 2000 to windows xp, during the install it came up with an error that a certain file was missing beginning with a and some other random letters and numbers. Upon doing a google on the file it did not even exist. Puzzling to say the least.
After some research I found a great work around which I can confirm does the trick,
what you need to do is:
1. When it says the file is missing during the blue install screen click skip file, this will then reboot your computer.
2. When it reboots it will offer the choice to start the windows 2000 or the xp so choose your original windows 2000.
3. Now when this has loaded you need to find this folder C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\directory
Should just be there in C drive,(presuming thats the the name of your main drive)
4. Now in this folder scroll down to a file called unsupdrv.inf , and open this in notepad.
5. This file will have 2 sections, although they arent really clearly defined bascially what I found was a small heading and then a large chunk. What you need to do is delete the large chunk which you will notice if you have a good memory or you were careful enough to make a note of that this is the filename that was allegedly missing .
6. When you've deleted the 'large chunk' of text make sure you leave the little heading and save.
7. Thats it you're done, now reboot and this time when asked which operating system to load, choose the xp install and you should find your install will now go smoothly without any missing random file errors( unless of course you got a filthy disc lol)
