    Windows 7 is quite paranoid about permissions. What you should do is to check from Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center what you have working. There are several options, you probably need to check the Homegroup part? And, be sure you are Administrator.

    Hi. Thanks for your message. Did it sound like I was asking for help? I was actually offering since I know about the permissions issue. I had been plagued with it until someone was nice enough to show me how to do away with permissions. Permissions almost drove me to an early grave. Thanks again.

    Sir, I just don't understand how you could view my genuine offer to help a person plagued with the permission issues so / I may not know a lot but I know that subject having learned how to disable permission in less than a minute, I don't know when you reported me but in response to your message, I replied that I was offering help, not soliciting.

    It was a misunderstanding, due to a probable lack in the message I read, like you can see in the clip I provided. The message I saw didn't contain any true essence, it was more like an invitation to "get somewhere", and that's quite typical for bots and such. What you sent was probably not what I read.

    Quite simply, I think your original message got stumped, leading to the whole mess we're talking about. I hope we get over this, and get on with our lives. I consider the matter discussed.

    I'm sad to hear about your car accident, I had a bike accident two years ago, twisted my knee badly.

    But to state a fact, I never called you a liar. Based on some previous experiences, I made the wrong judgement that "this could be a bot". It was a mistake, and I sincerely apologize for any hurt or insult or offense. To make a point, if anyone gets a red mark about this, it'll be me.

    Besides, even small misunderstandings have led to war.

    Hi, Thanks you for the very kind message. If you find words missing, letter, anything that's not correct it's bwant ecause something's wrong with my laptop. It is being worked on piece by piece, everything is being checked,but I can use it in the evenings. It is operating shamefullyack any more to fix stuff because it changes back sometimes, but going back to fix something takes too much time considering my typing speed.. I'm having to type at about 5 wpm. It's the only way to minimize problems which still occur but less frequently.
    I'm sorry to hear about your biking accident. I am a knee expert, having had them scoped 7 times (4 right, 3 left). I hope that it healed and that you did not have residual problems. About the car accident, it was only because God loves that I wasn't me killed, maimed or suffered a very injury. My SUV flpped over , front to back , 2 times and then rolled several times. I sustained a scratch to one of my fingers. So, it's a God.

    Well, thanks so much for the message. It brightened my otherwise f=dull dsy. You should know that I don't speak computer - yet. Two days ago I learned what bios was, So, could let me know whar a "bot' Dors it have to do with being bothersome? Again, thanks so much.

    The bot issue is quite well explained in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_bot

    They are very nasty things. Another nasty thing is that people who want to harm others, try to make innocent people's computers into bots = one bandit may have hundreds of computers subdued to spread messages, and these victims don't know about it. In the 90's, a leading nerd was asked, how many persons he would need to control all IT traffic in the world, and his answer was TWO. It's very vulnerable, the whole Internet.

    On the other hand, there are friendly bots, like those from Microsoft and Google. They are harmless information collectors, trying to improve things. There's the typical duality of Market Researchers vs. Bad Secret Agents. Heh.

    Glad we got in on peaceful ground. :bighug:

    Thanks, I will read the article after doing a scan. I'm hating life, with this laptop running likinrxple a piece of cheese I'm a bit crazy already. I don't need a stupid piece of cheese taking me to the dark side. Nope. So, I'm doing a scan. This piece of sushi (the cheese is a little too fattexabening) (I'm done fixing the mistakes that arehapprnirg ) has probably been scanned over 100 times and nothing ever shows up. It'ys done a couple of inexplicable things, things I had never heard, I don't think anyone believed me, so it hA [[ happened over the weekend and I took a picture of it. I know you're curious now so I\ll tell you. It's happened twice, the first 3 weeks ago and then this weekenyd. Onr morning, I open the lip of the lapton (I had it in sleep mode). and on the desktop there is an 8-1/2 by11 piece of whire white paper. It looked exactly like s omeone had slipped thr paprt in between the glass and the back. I really spooked me because a had never seen or hearof anyone having that happen. It was just ordinar whi te paper, copyy paper, regular paprr. It was covering my desktip, not everything but a lot of this. It hadnothing to vlose ckis close it with, like what we have, those thinngs in the corner of screens to minnimize or make tiny so what I did was I took those little lines That shop up when you get to a slide side of a texr box, anythihg really that you could shrink and I used those on each side pushing the asiuntil it was small enough to move off the desktop. It was gone after 10 minutres. So 2 times. And on onr occsdioin occasion, it wasn't paper, it was a 3 x 5 lined card. I'm mpt not jokin.g. Kind of scarrry, I don't under stand how a person who has been "botten" wouldn't know it... If another person takes your g . . . very strange things are happening. I copy and paste rvey 2 sentences so if (it'sm ore likr when) if I lose it I have it can [aste it om. It won't lt me copy and then thr keys stopped displaying. aiI am typing so slowlyy. Sorry I got carried away with my story. I domrtimrd sometimrss grt sidetrac ked and start talking anf talkin anf talkin. Thr lasst thing I eant es want to say is have you ever heard of any who is ;l plagued with office supplirs? I'm wondering if you've ever heard of such a weird thing? I haven't and it's sorrrt of scary.

    Did you receive an incomplete message? If so, my laptop thought that you should read it now. This thing's a mess. (it just let me copy so I'm not as paranoid sbpou abouh hacvub havub about having gthis disappear). I knoe a sentence has moved. Dorry for not fixing thr errors. It would simply take etirely too long to finish. aS it is, it's takng a long time. I'm sure you can firgure whatr I'm tryying to say. Her'e's hoping that something goofd clomes comes from the scan i'm going to do. And, yes, I am very glad there now is no more discord betweeeeen us. (NOW Ir it wonl'lt let me go to thr thr ne z next line, like a r=typewriter's carriage treturn OMG I just reASD reread ypu your message and the first timr I did there wasn't a secjong second paragraph.I r I guess my laptop is now censoring my things. One other thing: was there a link in your message? Gaby

    I do
