This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- Internet Explorer Starting in Minimized Mode
Subscriber David Forness wrote to ask how to solve a problem with his computer. Sometimes, grandchildren play with the settings or otherwise leave problems… Dear Terry, Our granddaughter was using my wife’s computer last Thursday night and now all IE8 windows open minimized. Clicking a shortcut on the desktop open the associated window the same way […]
- Wireless Network Connection Problems
Subscriber Howie Kipnes wrote to with web browsing and wireless network connection problems, apparently unrelated: Dear Terry, I have two recent issues that came up a couple of days apart […]

This Week Online:
With my new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site, I now publish articles individually rather than as an on-line issue. That also means that I can link directly to the articles, as I’ve done below:
- Finding Computer Goodies for Last Minute Christmas Presents
Searching for a Last Minute Christmas Gift? Worried about getting them shipped and delivered in time? This is the shopping and shipping solution I used… not just for computer accessories (or even computers), but also for books, DVD’s, toys, clothing, and much more.
- Upgrading to SageTV Media Center software v7
I just upgraded the home theater PC software on my home theater PC from SageTV Media Center version 6 to the latest version (v7) of SageTV. I’m amazed… The user interface has been revamped to a much more modern style, while retaining the functionality of the old one[…]
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
I love the new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to the Genesis Theme Framework.
The following are new individual articles this week on my Terry’s Computer Tip web site that were originally posted in my email or online newsletters.
As above, these are now direct links to the individual articles…
- Outlook Refuses to Open Email Links
Subscriber Polly wrote me to ask about a problem she was having with Microsoft Outlook: Hi. When I try to open a link in my office outlook it refuses to do so and a message comes up…”this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.” I have had this computer since May and until a fortnight ago everything opened as expected[…]
- Where Should I Save my Hard Drive Backup Image?
Reader Jack wrote to ask: You often write about imaging a system, but I do not see an explanation as to where Acronis is backing up to? Do I need an external drive? Certainly, backing up to the C: drive, even if partitioned would be a waste if the computer dies. You’re absolutely right, Jack, […]
- Reducing Frustration by Changing the Windows 7 User Access Control Settings
I wish there were a few more settings options in the Windows 7 User Access Control (UAC) Settings dialog box. Some programs, especially utility programs, trigger the UAC warning every time I start them manually, but not if started as a Windows Service or started by the Windows scheduler or Windows startup routines. For example, […]
- A Look at Acronis True Image Home 2011 | Acronis True Image Home 2011 Review
I was impressed. Acronis True Image Home 2011 was released on a Tuesday. I bought a copy on Wednesday for my desktop, and so I could do the review. On Thursday, I bought three more licenses — for my notebook, my other desktop and my wife’s computer. Yep, I liked it…
