I didn't realize that some packages of Office 365 come with the installable version of Office, aka the Desktop Apps. We already have a CRM system in place from Microsoft at the non-profit discounted...

She doesn't have any Clipboard helper apps, or anything called Netbeans. I ran the command to clear the clipboard, and it tentatively seemed to be working for me. I'm having her try it out after...

Weird Clipboard Problem

One of my users has a very strange issue. It's with a Windows 7 Pro SP1 system. Whenever she tries to copy text from one program to another, it pastes old data that she copied a week ago. This...

I can't get the system file checker to run, due to permissions. It verifies to 50% and then gives me a permissions error. Same in safe mode, and I'm using an admin level account.

Just because it is rated at USB 2.0, doesn't mean it will run fast, either. I have 10 different flash drives on my desk right now, and some of the generic ones that were giveaways run dog slow...

That might have been the case. Damn. I ran slmgr /dlv and it said I already used the 3 activation periods, so I'm S.O.L. I think. Better build a new image and follow your suggestion above.

I'm confused as to what issue you are having. Both printers should be installed as separate printers, because they would have separate IP addresses. Windows may prompt you that it already has the...

It mentions the WiFi type and brand in the description, but it isn't one I've ever heard of. You'll have to check MSI's site for specific drivers, but there's nothing wrong with Windows 8. If you...
