Bigmc--

Thanks. I use TB myself, so I am familar with it. Though it can be a bit quirky at times (I've had to clean out my .msf files a few times when the program got sluggish). But right now,...

Ztrucker--

Thanks. I'll take another look at Windows Mail. But a couple of folks have told me that they had problems with it. But it's worth another look.

Golden--

Thanks. I'm familiar with Thunderbird (been using it myself since I got the Win 7 System). But migrating my OE mail to TB initially was a hassle. Since I figure I'll end up doing it,...

I'm in the process of purchasing a new system for a family member, and I have found a vendor who will...

Kari--

I had read the article. But I concluded (perhaps wrongly, of course) that it was not the basis of my situation. I based this on the following factors

The XP Mode in the virtual machine is 32 bit (the idea of XP Mode is to give an environment to run programs that are incompatible with Windows 7 (mostly) 64 bit. I am running Windows 7 64...

As a follow on, I thought I'd see if I could get a screen shot. Though it all goes by very quickly, I was able to gt one. Don't know if this will add anything, but figured it does no harm to show...

Thanks for responding. No, as far as I know, I've not installed any software that has any kind of shell extension that would affect folders or drives. In fact, the ONLY software I've...

Follow On Observations

Since no one seems to have any ideas about this problem (an unusual event in this forum in my experience), I thought I'd add a bit more of what I have discovered to see if it ignites a spark of logic...

Thanks for the comments. Actually, it has a name (IOMEGA_HDD) which I assume is the default that Iomega gave it. And I have run the SFC and it comes up clean. The only other USB device I have is a...

Thanks. I agree it's a minor annoyance. But I feel better finding out that it is something that others experience too, and not some more serious problem with my system.

Thanks. I've exported that registry key to a text file, so that the next time it happens, I can compare the entries as you suggest. I'll let you know what happens, though it may be some time before...

I have an external 1TB Iomega USB hard drive on my system. It is set to be Drive Y. Most...

Boobah--

Thanks for the suggestion. But I already tried the IcoFx program. And it won't recognize that my icon library files have any icons. My problem isn't that I need to turn image files...

Shawn--

Well, it looked promising. And though it sees icons in many EXE files, it does NOT see them in any of my EXE or NIL icon library files. Most of these files were created in the 1990-1995...

Extract Old Icons

This is admittedly a relatively trivial issue. But just based on the possibility that someone else has solved this, I'm going to ask anyway.

I have several "libraries" of icons that were...

Thanks. I'm always hesitant to "fix" what isn't totally broken (the 5 GH does work, it's just the weak signal that's annoying. And there is the additional doubt about whether the problem is with...

Another follow up for you. This probably doesn't belong here, since it is, I presume, primarily a Windows XP issue. But since it is part and parcel of the same discussion, I thought I...

Thanks. I'll experiment with it a bit. In checking the signal strength, the 2.4 connection consistently shows 2 bars, and sometimes 3, while the 5 shows one, and sometimes 2.

Chev 65--
