Recently I was trying to insert a new image in an email signature for a user , however when I inserted the image it reduced the width which changed the resolution of the signature to an unreadable format. This is due to the fact outlook tries to resize the image to the width of an A4 page. There is no where in outlook 2007 to change the size of the image. To change the image back to its original 2

1) Find the sinatures HTM File , this will be in C:\Documents and Settings\”Your Username”\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures

2) Open ( The name of the signature).htm with Microsoft Word

3) Right click on the image , click format , select Picture tab and choose Reset Picture

4) Save the file an this will change the signature back to its original size!

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!

Upon Windows Startup , the following error is displayed :

Spoolsv.exe - Application Error"

The instruction at "0x77fcc2c0" referenced memory at "0x00000000".

The memory could not be written."

This is due to bad print jobs in the printer queue

  1. Open Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, select Administrative Tools and then select the Services option.
  2. In the Services management console, locate the Printer Spooler services, right-click on it and select Stop.
  3. Next, open the C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers folder. (Here, we are assuming that your Windows is installed in the default C:\Windows folder)
  4. Delete all the .SHD and SPL files from this folder.
  5. Finally, restart the Spooler service from the Services management console.

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 and but so far no free software

Even when adding a site to a trusted site in Internet Explorer sometimes you get these warnings :

“Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely

This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.”

“This page contains both secure and nonsecure items.
Do you want to display the nonsecure items?”

If you want to get rid of these :

Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Security

Choose “Internet” Icon ( And if you have added the site to a trusted site you will need to do this for the trusted sites as well )

Click the “Custom Level” button

In the “Miscellaneous” section change “Display mixed content” to Enable.

Restart Internet Explorer – Jobs a Goodun!

Now you can view and set permissions. 

To set
- Click 'Add'

- Select the user and click Ok, Ok..
- Set the permission and click 'Commit changes'


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!

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 : ( Which is Spell Checker For OE 2.1 )

Just to note , this will only restore English ( United States ) Language

Trying to open up outlook on a new windows profile can sometimes bring up the error message

Installation Error: File not Found

A required installation file SKU112.CAB could not be found.”

Go into Registry Editor (Start, Run, “regedit”).
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Delivery.
There should be only 1 directory under Delivery, which is your DownloadCode
(mine was 90000409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9).
Select that directory [or all if more]. On the right side of the screen,
right-click on CDCache. Change the value to 0. and problem solved
