When creating an email in Microsoft Outlook you attempt to correct a misspelled word, however when you right click on the word, the signature menu opens instead of the spelling menu.
This happens when you have a default signature at the bottom of your email , and is due to the fact outlook thinks your whole message is the signature due to :
A) Deleted the first two blank lines in the email to the point where the first character in your email is the first character in your signature. or
B) Hit Delete too much or used Backspace to the point where the first character of your signature is directly following the last character of your email.
The best way round this is to not do the above or add “–” to the start of every signature!

Windows 7 have removed Removable Storage Manager (RSM) service from Windows 7
Microsoft say “You can use RSM to manage online libraries (such as changers and jukeboxes) and track removable tapes and disks.”
This means Windows NT Backup for Windows 7 and Server 2008 OS no longer included intergrated support for Tape Drives
The way around this for Server 2008 is to install Nortons Backup Exec
For Windows 7 , It seems the only tool I found that support this is http://www.uraniumbackup.com/index-en.aspx
but so far no free software

Let's say you want everyone to be able to edit and view each others
This is a very common thing in many organizations.
Luckly this tool brings us a bulk permission set tool!
- Click tools
- Click 'Set Calendar Permissions'
- Click 'Add'
- Click 'Browse' and search for the 'Everyone' context
- Select it and click Ok, Ok..
- Set the permissions for everyone.
- Click Ok
A new pop-up reveals itself.
Read it carefully.. in the next dialog you can REMOVE permissions.
The role in the dropdownbox, as the pop-up tells us, has got no effect.
So select the entities you want to be removed by for example the 'Everyone' group.
Right now, we ain't going to use this setting since we are not removing, but setting permissions.
Just click 'Ok' and witness how the tool will edit al the calendar folders..

I had just upgrade a Users computer to Office 2007 , They wanted to use Microsoft Outlook for their work email and utilise Outlook Express for their peronsal email. However upon opening the spell checker it had been changed to the French dictionary. I also noticed that I was unable to change it back to the English dictionary.
Turns out this is noted fault from Microsoft! http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932974
Their solution is to download and install Windows Vista / Windows 7 New Version of Outlook Express = “Windows Live Mail”
I know how users get attached to their software , and the way it looks and feels! So luckily I found a solution so the user could still utilise Outlook Express Spell Checker
This is to Download and Install : http://www.snapfiles.com/downloads/dlspelloe.html ( Which is Spell Checker For OE 2.1 )
Just to note , this will only restore English ( United States ) Language

Recently after upgrading my Compaq 6715p Laptop to Windows 7 from Windows XP, everytime my laptop came out of Standby or Hibernation it locked up, and the only way to unlock it was to hard reset the laptop with its power button. My Laptop has a X1200 Radeon Mobile Graphics Card. After trying to upgrade to the latest driver version , I found I couldn’t find the drivers for the X1200 on the ATI’s Site
After some research
I found that you can download and install the x1050 and the x1300 Drivers for this card. Upon installing these it fixed the issue

The default Data paths have changed at Sage 2008 and 2009 . These are now set depending on the OS.
NB – In pre Sage 2008 versions the Company file was in the Sage Program Folder. The actual data would be in a subfolder of the Program Folder i.e. C:\Program Files\Sage 2007\Accounts
Windows Vista and Windows 7 – Data is in ->
Windows XP – Data is in ->
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sage\Accounts\2008\
Sage uses a COMPANY file with no file extensions to reference data paths for your sage folders
To Reset Sage and to get it start the open company wizard , close sage and delete this COMPANY file
This site has a loads of top tips on Sage
