Best Olympic Commercial

With over twenty years of Television Production experience, the Olympics being, by far the most prestigious of all productions, it was the playing of our National Anthem when the flag was raised as we won Gold and with all of Canada's diversity, it is no wonder I find the Bombardier commercial the best.

Possible fix for printing email problems after updating windows

I came across this repair that worked for the one computer I was working on that would not print after updating:
 
llC.\windows\system32\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg
 
was the error and the fix was:
 
RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, register the Ole32.dll file.
 
To do this, follow these steps:
 
1. Click Start, click Run, type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll

2. In the RegSvr32 dialog box, click OK.
 
If this sounds Greek to you and you are an existing client of mine, simply let me know and I can make the repair remotely! 
 
Remember many other TIPS and SOFTWARE/SUPPORT can be found through the website directly.

Speed Reading

If there is one thing I would never have believed I would be doing it would be the amount of reading I do in one day.   A number of years ago I was involved with the marketing of a Speed Reader program, creating the 'infomercial" and so I did learn a number of procedures to train the eyes, etc.  

Along comes this wonderful website 'spreeder.com' that provides you with a simple to use speed reading tool.  

Give it a try. It starts with a 300 word per minute setting which you can change. I immediately moved it to 600 which I currently find to be working well for me. 

Now it will be interesting to see as I use this for a full day/week/month to know if my brain is going to explode or not from all the information!

Technical-XP SP3 reboot issues on HP computer

It appears the problems with certain AMD based HP systems continues to be plagued with problems when the XP SP3 update is intalled. Fortunately thanks to the internet and the millions of forums out there, I was able to find a very simple fix thanks to Jesper's blog and the quick script fix. To note I was successful installing this AFTER XP SP3 had been installed by entering safe mode (with networking).

New Spybot Search & Destroy Available

As with any spyware scanning program there are always updates. Periodically these updates are not just for the definitions but within the program itself.  If you have set up Spybot Search & Destroy to work automatically when you click on the icon, this will result in some things being installed that you do not want running, this would be the TEA-TIMER which will slow your system down drastically due to the system scanning all activity. I suggest turning this feature off, especially if you perform routine spyware scans.  As always you can cut through all the ad pop-ups and other stuff by installing the latest version from the SOFTWARE/SUPPORT page or directly from this link.
