    No application for search and How add Agent Ransack to disk context?

    When you right-click while on a folder in Windows Explorer, "search" isn't working. It complains that "This file does not have a program associated with it..." I presume I somehow clobbered something, somewhere. How do I get this working again? In installed Agent Ransack for doing searches...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    OK, THIS is how I think It's SUPPOSED to work.............. Put the D-Link card in the box. Put the W7 CD in, installed the O/S, and during the installation it said "HEY, I found a network, you wanna connect?"........ No muss, no fuss, no stupidity, no pain, anguish, or weeping, wailing or...

    Critical Updates failing and reverting....

    OK, I"ll now hang my head in shame... I forgot to check the log....... Just tried to clean up the mess and rerun the update... I'll have to look in there and see if there's something intuitively obvious... Although, this is a brand new install, and I haven't put anything else on the box yet...

    Critical Updates failing and reverting....

    Well, at the moment it's a moot point...... The last time it composted, it apparently clobbered the boot manager. I eventually managed to get it repaired, but now when the system boots I can log in but just get a blank screen instead of a desktop....... So, I"ll have to chase this down before...

    Critical Updates failing and reverting....

    I recently installed Windows 7, 64-bit on a system. Went on fine..... Works FINE. Had the system check for updates, and it found 55 critical updates it wants to make. So, I let it. At the end it wanted to do a reboot, and I did so. On the boot it did whatever it does when it says it's...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    Yeah, I thought about the wisdom of keeping this thing...... BUT, my mental health is often questioned as it is.... And I figure if I offer this card to some friend or family member they're going to want me to help get it working... So, I've gotta go with my original idea... I figure if I...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    OK... Things are looking up.............. My 7 & 8 year old grandsons, who when they aren't out robbing trains (Butch & Sundance), specialize in destroying computers, had their box over yesterday..... SO, after blowing everything away and reinstalling Windows XP, I stuck the Trendnet card in...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    HMPH! Tell the truth, you're all big shareholders in Cisco! Are you talking about wlansvc? 'Cause either the W7 installation or the wireless card driver installation is setting it to automatic and running... At least, every time I've checked it in the process list it's been automatic and...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    It IS A CLEAN PC.......... As I've said before, I'm INSTALLING Windows 7......... I've installed.... I've REINSTALLED. I've installed just the drivers. I've installed the drivers AND the utility. I've REMOVED THE UTILITY. I've BLOWN away the whole thing and reinstalled to make SURE...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    OK, I've now started down the silly path...... Opened a help ticket at Trendnet... AND very carefully gave them specifics on what it isn't doing, and WHAT'S ALREADY BEEN TRIED.......... The response: Remove the utility and let Windows do the connecting..... Oh.... Updated the ticket and...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    Oh, I'm only six feet from the access point because it's in my office and I"m working on the machine there... Normally, this machine is as far as possible from my office while still keeping it in the house! My goal is to keep my wife far, FAR away when she's on the computer so wireless is...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    Yup, been doing that too....... It always creates a profile even though it's never successfully communicated. I keep deleting them..... Sounds like time to order a different card. Unfortunately, there appear to be a plethora of notes out there about people having problems with all kind of...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    There is NO mdnsresponder.exe in the process list. Do I need one? Ran the netsh commands........ Rebooted. There's no utility installed.... All I did was let W7 boot, and install the old driver. Copied the "updated" 64-bit driver from Trendnet and installed it........ NO utility...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    Tried that yesterday....... Turned off WPA and WEP. It still wouldn't connect....... I checked on the network on the system and it recognized there was no security, but it still didn't communicate... Saw the network, just doesn't connect successfully. BUT, I'm gonna try it again just in...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    What really confuses me is that this card worked in this computer when it was running XP... Same access point to DSL and everything..... Only change is the O/S. I presume it's something different in the way W7 works, 'cause W7 says it connects but it won't communicate. The system SEES the...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    Pardon me while I release a loud scream of anguish............................. OK, ... I don't have any security software on the affected system. All that's on there is the O/S..... Haven't put anything else on until I can get to the main system that has the kits... I just checked the...

    Trendnet/Trendware TEW423 won't connect.......

    I looked in here and don't find anything specific to the TEW-423 and (as far as I can tell) I've done what the other "can't connect" notes recommended... My wife's desktop worked FINE....... With XP. Had a disk problem and put in a new drive, and she asked about going to Windows 7 like the...

    Boot time, unneeded services, and speeding up W7

    Yeah, it was pretty amazing the sheer volume of services that get started....... AND, the interaction between them makes it important to be really careful about what gets turned off... As far as boot time, I'm now thinking I should just quiet down and slink away... I thought my desktop was...

    Boot time, unneeded services, and speeding up W7

    I've been to blackviper.com and turned off the services as described there that I was sure wouldn't cause a problem... Antivirus is the MS Security Essentials, and the firewall is the regular W7 firewall....... Network is this box on a wired connection to the DSL access point. Other systems...
