This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- Windows 7’s Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player Disappeared
I ran into friend and subscriber Sam Boggs last weekend at a home & landscaping show last weekend. He followed up to tell me about this recent experience.
My first thought was "now, that’s weird, I haven’t heard of that problem before." Then, I realized I had experienced something very similar with Microsoft’s Virtual PC software…
Terry: When I saw you today, I mentioned an odd problem I had with my computer. After a successful installation of Windows 7, a few weeks later Windows Media Center (WMC) and Windows Media Player (WMP) had "disappeared."
- Solid State Drive (SSD) Is Filling Up and Causing Problems
Fellow Cajun Clickers Computer Club member and long-term subscriber wrote to me about his problems with his Solid State Drive (SSD) on his netbook:
Terry, I have an Acer 8.9“ netbook with 1BG memory and an 8 GB SS drive with an additional 8 GB removable SD card. The SS drive is filling up. Obviously I can access the SD card but how can I cause the computer to read from this drive.

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:
- A First Look at Internet Explorer 9
Microsoft released Internet Explorer 9 this week, so I decided to take a look at it…
Google has released their latest Chrome version, Mozilla Foundation is scheduled to release Firefox 4 this coming week, but Internet Explorer is still the “standard” since it’s included with Windows. I’m running Windows 7 64-bit version on my desktop, […]
- Internet Explorer 9 – Displaying the Tool Bars – the Menu bar, Favorites bar, etc
When you start up Internet Explorer 9 for the first time, you have a very bland and semi-transparent frame for the Window. Not only that, IE9 has done away with the usual display of web page’s title on the top bar of the Window. Now, it’s just a plain program header that merges into the […]
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
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…
- Adding Keyboard Sounds to Windows
Subscriber Gary wrote recently from New Zealand about his new Windows 7 computer:
I have just setup a new computer running Windows 7. All sounds work except for the keystroke sounds, e.g. caps lock. I have the relevant activation selections in "Ease of Access > Make the Keyboard easier to use". Any solutions? I wrote […]
- Links In Emails Won’t Work
Marilyn Stenning wrote recently to ask how to get links in her emails to work. Her email program kept giving an error message when she clicks on a link in an email.
Whenever I click on a link in any email a message now appears: “This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect…"
- Flash Drive Is Empty, But Little Usable Storage Capacity Left
Reader Ed Pilarczyk wrote to ask how to solve a strange problem with his flash drive:
Hey Terry, I continue to use your information to hone my computer skill…But I’m stumped. I have a Kingston 16 GB DataTraveler that I was going to use to […]
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 WordPress and the Genesis Theme Framework.
