If you set up a user on Google Apps or Gmail and link it to their Blackberry Internet Services the user will get a copy of each sent item in their inbox. This can get frustrating however never fear , there is a simple fix. Luckily Blackberry Internet Services comes with a filter for incoming messages

usb_memory_stick_phone_cp_gt_1380_1
A client needed to copy a file larger than 5 Gigabytes to a 16 Gigabyte Memory Stick. Due to the standard partitions of external storage being FAT32 , file copying failed. Formatting an external Hard Disk is easy through Disk Management in ( Control Panel , Administration Tools , Computer Management ). However there are a few tips to bear in mind when it comes to Memory Sticks
First due to technology limitations of the flash chips, there is a limitation on how many times it can be written to (around 10000 Times). NTFS also uses more activity on its file systems due to its Journaling File System to Log everything performed.
To ready your device for formatting, Go to Device Manager ( Right Click My Computer , Properties , Hardware ) and find your USB or Memory Stick under the Disk Drives Section. Double click on your device “optimize for performance” Under the Policies Tab

optimize-for-performance1

Then run this command in the command Prompt

convert u: /fs:ntfs ( u: being the drive letter of the memory stick)

If this brings back an error about exclusive access to the drive being denied , restart the computer and after startup, without opening anything up, try this again

This resolved both errors!

I recently noticed the speed of my computer reduced dramatically. Upon examination of Task Manger it seemed that the executable “Microsoft User-Mode Driver Framework Install-v1.0-WinXP.exe” was running every 5 Seconds and creating a Temporary directory in C:\WINDOWS\Temp under the format of Folders such as “WDF20F.tmp”. By the time I had investigated there was well over 500 folders !!!

I removed these through the command prompt with command “rd /s /q C:\WINDOWS\Temp\”

I then did some investigation to what was causing the issue. This was Nokia PC suite trying to install the phone drivers for a phone that wasn’t even connected to my computer! I stopped this by opening up device manager and removing my phone from the device manager list.

A computer with the LogMeIn Free Client installed randomly generated the error message

“LMIRfsclientNP.dll is not a valid Windows Image” on logging into windows. This is due to a corruption of the file accessed by Net and Userinit.exe. To clear this error simply reinstall the LogMeIn Free Client. You can get this from www.logmein.com

A client recently upgrade from to the latest version of Sage Line Accounts ( 2009 ). When starting the program and going to the default directory for the company folders ( C:\Program Files\line 50\) and selecting the chosen company folders Company.001 , Company.002 Etc it produced the error

“No data found in this directory”

A manual work around is:

Close Sage

Copy the folders into the new default storage of Sage 2009 ( C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sage\Accounts\2009 ) from the old verison sage default location ( C:\Program Files\line 50\)

Then Edit the file “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sage\Accounts\2009\COMPANY” in notepad

And manually add the new folders to that list e.g.
C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\APPLICATION DATA\SAGE\ACCOUNTS\2009\COMPANY.000

C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\APPLICATION DATA\SAGE\ACCOUNTS\2009\COMPANY.001

Save the file and open up sage and you should see your new companies in the company list, select one and it will ask you to upgrade the company folder to the new version
