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:
- Recovering Outlook Express Email Messages
Recovering Outlook Express email messages can suddenly become a priority. If you can’t resolve the file problem, the next best bet is to restore the OE files from your Acronis True Image Home 2011 backup files. Subcriber Glen Parbery wrote this week to ask about a bad problem he had experienced with Outlook Express – […]

- Acronis True Image Special and Coupon Code
Acronis has just started a very special promotion on their backup program that I use and recommend. With each copy of Acronis True Image Home 2011 you get a FREE copy of the Plus Pack add-on (special expires November 30, 2010). Even better, they’re offering an additional 5% OFF with coupon code 5OFFATIH2011 .

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…
- Reformatting a Laptop Hard Drive, part 2
In a recent article Reformatting a Notebook Computer’s Hard DriveI answered reader Ken’s question about reformatting his 4-year-old HP laptop computer. Unfortunately, Ken’s computer had not come with a Windows CD. So, he didn’t know how to get started. Briefly summarizing, I wrote that, if Ken wants to reinstall the Windows XP (I assumed it […]
- Saving Bookmarks and Favorites, part 3
In the July 25th issue of Terry’s Computer Tips, I had a question from subscriber Suzanne about saving bookmarks so she could use them on another computer. Last week’s issue included reader suggestions for more things that Suzanne could do — and this week, there are even more… First, subscriber Harold wrote to say: “Reader […]

Several readers provided suggestions about my recent article Saving Bookmarks and Favorites for Portable Use with Other Computers… Rohn wrote: For my use, I have installed a Firefox add-on called “PlainOldFavorites”.

- N Computing for Multiple Independent Desktops
Sometimes, I get requests from subscribers or even non-subscribers that are unreasonable. I enjoy helping subscribers solve their problems. Of course, my other motivation is that it helps me write my newsletter articles. Other times, a subscriber thinks I’m his free consultant and wants me to do detailed research — for free — for his […]
