    Can't Record MP3

    Thanks to you both for the replies. There were no updates immediately prior to this becoming evident. I rather suspect Kaspersky. I downloaded and tried to re-install the prog but the installer wouldn't run. Going back to the download directory, I found the instalIer had been deleted. I took...

    Can't Record MP3

    Suddenly I am unable to record mp3s with a programme (RecAllPro) which worked up until yesterday. I now get: "Cannot open this file using audio compression for Windows. Either the required codec is not present or does not support the requested bitrate" (Acmopen). I have all the required...

    'Dirty' SD Card

    Thanks ! I'll try that, but I think that's the solution which bricked the last card I tried it with. So I'll back up the contents of the card to an HDD before trying that trick. I'll report back. Thanks again -- Cheemag

    'Dirty' SD Card

    Hello, Windows 7 refuses to let me save/delete etc files on my Android tablet's SD card, claiming the file system is 'dirty'. The last time this happened I followed the prompts to correct it and ended up with a bricked SD card which was unuseable/unformatable and had to be discarded...

    Weird!

    Thanks both. I'll save the desktop. The author of 'Save Desktop' has not responded to an Email. Even though the keyboard is as old as I am , its Alt key isn't sticking as I use it all the time as an escape key for Autohotkeys and it always functions normally. Sticky keys isn't/aren't...

    Weird!

    Thanks for your reply. But it would be much easier just to reboot which clears the problem. And perhaps find another desktop restore utility which does not cause this problem. I lose the desktop icon placments if I boot the machine with the (HDMI) monitor switched off. Thanks again Cheemag

    Weird!

    Hello Again, On occasion, when I double click on a desktop icon it comes up with the Properties window. Can I fix it without a reboot? Could it be the utility 'Save Desktop' which causes this. That utility repairs a desktop whose icons become scrambled. Progs launched from...

    Weird File Behavious
