Hello Corrine,
Yes, I do have another email Account and my address is [edited]. This server claims to be able to collect from any other email account but it cannot recognise my mail2world account. This seems quite strange to me as I have used Firefox and mail2word for years without any trouble at all and has previously been able to collect from mail2world although I used it very little.

Note:  E-mail address edited out to protect your privacy.

Hello Corrine,
Thank you for your reply. This is what I get when I try to open an attachment in Firefox.

"Service Temporarily Unavailable

Hello Corrine,
It is about 2 years since we last corresponded and I am still managing to make a mess of my emails. Yes I am able to see the image of the Christmas Tree.It is only recently I have had this problem with Firefox. I can access Firefox via Internet Explorer and it works OK. This is what I find annoying. Firefox and IE are the only browsers I use. I can't be bothered with anything else.
I didn't find "Firefox help" of much use.

I have been using firefox for many years but just recently it has been malfunctioning. I can log-on OK and read my emails (in mail2world) but I cannot see attachments. A blank square appears and if I click on the attachment indicator below the email a notice appears saying something like "Server is busy etc." This never used to happen. I have emailed mozilla firefox for help but the the reply was unhelpful. This problem doesn't occur on Internet Explorer. I have reinstalled firefox without result. Someone might say "Why bother, use IE" but there is something wrong. Any ideas anybody?

I have a compaq sg3 220uk computer running Windows 7 Home Premium. I don't have a lot of programs on it. The hard disc is about 1/4 full. recently it seems to have become very slow. I use Firefox and these days it can take over a minute for a proram or change of program to appear. Just now it took ebay nearly 2 mins. to load. I have used Windows clean up program but it has made no difference. A broadband speed checker showed a download speed of 7mps. What can have happened.? I am sure this slowness is fairly recent.
Kindest regards  to Corinne

Thank you Donnab and Aaron Hulett. The HP website looks very promising. I will try out the suggestions when I have digested the information. The problem is not critical.

Computer Problems, Questions and Solutions! / Stand by restart
« on: November 09, 2011, 05:00:28 PM »
I have a Compaq SG3-220UK machine with Windows 7 Home Premium. I have "Shutdown", "Hibernate" and "Standby" icons on the destop. If I double click on "Standby" the machine goes into standby for a short time and then restarts itself. This can occur several times in succession. Then sometimes it will go into "Standby" and remain until I press the space bar to restart it. The self restarting occurs much more often than staying in "Standby" mode. Shutdown" and "Hibernate" are OK. Any ideas as to why this is happening? It is irritating.

I have received an email containing a "personal message" to me about a forum. It is signed as below:-

Is this genuine? I haven't come across it before and I am wary of uninvited emails other than from sites I know.

Hello Corrine.
Thank you for your response. Sorry for the delay in replying,I have had some problems. Your solution did not work. I reloaded XP again and discovered that it can be loaded only for a specific number of times, which I appear to have exceeded, and then the key does I can't load any updates. My son has a computer tech friend who builds specialist computers and networks professionally. He said my machine is not worth repairing even if I bought all the bits and did it myself as it is 5 years old. A copy of XP SP3, reputedtly genuine, is nearly half the price of W 7. He recommended Compaq and I can get a base unit with Athlon processor, 500 gb hd, 4gb memory, W 7 Home Premium, etc, new, for 1-1/3 the cost of repair. I don't play games and don't have much correspodence.  My son will make a big contrbution for my birthday so that is what I am going to do. Will programs that I have downloaded and which can be trsferred to DVD work with W7?

I installed Zonealarm Free from the Cnet download site. It has completely upset my machine. The internet connection no longer exixts, there are no restore points available, the date and time are all wrong. I am finding it difficult even to access Safe Mode because it immediately restarts. Although the Desktop appears most of the programs don't work. I have been told that only a complete reinstal will cure it and then I will have to find and install my programs afresh. Is this correct? Fortunately I have an old spare machine I can use. Any comments,anyone?

Hello Corrine,
Many thanks for your reply.It worked perfectly.I spent ages struggling with this problem. My desktop is now fully active and your assistance is greatly appreciated. My reference to a posting by "reynopj" was a mistake. I became mixed up with another forum. I do this quite a lot these days as I am getting on in years (89+11mths.)
Kindest regards

I have 2 machines connected to the internet via a Netgear router. Both have XP3 and updates. One is a desktop and the other is a laptop. The laptop works perfectly but the desktop will boot and all loaded programs are available but it can't access the internet. The laptop can. This problem sems to have occurred after uninstalling AXG Free and installing Avast on the desktop. Also on is Superantispyware. I don't want to reinstall Windows from scratch if I can help it. Any ideas as to what can have happened? A search seems to indicate that "reynopj" experienced a similar problem on 20-12-2010 but didn't get any responses as far as I can see. He must be disappointed.

Computer Problems, Questions and Solutions! / Re: Hard disk problems
« on: December 19, 2006, 09:53:45 AM »
Hello all,
Thank you for your responses but I am back again with problems.
I reinstalled XP+SP2 on to my 80g hard disk with only partial success. I know what to do with jumpers and have set the 80 to master and the 40 as slave on the same IDE cable. There are 2 IDE outlets on my motherboard,1 for hard disks and the other for CD roms. Everything then boots up ok except that the desktop ikons seem to refer to either the 80 disk or the 40 disk at random. The boot sequence is the 80 (E:drive) first and the 40 (C:drive) second. The E: drive appears to be the system drive because I can't change the drive letter. A legend appears that says I cannot change the drive letter on the E: drive because it is the system drive. If I disconnect the C: drive (40g) I can't boot from the E:drive alone. Windows starts up, "Windows is starting" appears then "Loading your settings" but then a 3rd. window with "Logging off" appears and the machine then hangs and I have to try and restart. If I try to start in safe mode the 3 windows appear in rapid succession repeatedly until I close down. If I reconnect the C: drive (40g) the system often boots up OK. Unfortunately every so often the C: drive gives up, the machine hangs and on restarting the bios wants to boot off a floppy and I have reset the boot order in the bios. Has anybody any ideas? It is extremely irritating especially if I am inthe middle of Word or Excel. Once I can get the 80g disk to perform properly I will discard the 40g disk completely.

I have a 40g hard disk which doesn't get "recognised" every so often. I bought an 80g disk and cloned my 40g disk on to it with Acronis disk cloning program. I made the 8og disk the master and the 40g the slave and ensured the boot sequence was correct. If I disconnect the 40g disk the machine boots up to the "Loading settings" window then "Logging off" appears and then hangs. If  I connect the 40g as slave the machine boots from the slave and I get a message "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close etc." If I cancel this notice quickly the machine remains booted and operational until my 40g slave disk decides to go on strike. If I try to boot in "Safe mode" only using the 80g disk  the 3 windows appear in very rapid succession and it won't boot. I was coming to the conclusion that I must reload Windows but how do I ensure it loads on to the 80g disk?
