Now I apparently don't have Adobe Flash version 9. Rolling Eyes

I go to install 10.1 and once again I get "Error: Installation failed"


Fixed again!

Realise not anything you can do here - but this evening, quite out of the blue, I've been getting Microsoft messages telling me the version of Windows 7 I'm using isn't genuine!  I've had it for some weeks now and have had no problems.  It was installed by a perfectly reputable computer shop, so guess I'll have to speak to them about it and get it validated.

Can't understand this at all - very mysterious. Think

Isn't that the standard message with a new installation until you verify it online? Have you clicked it and tried to follow the steps?

Was surprised because I've had W 7 for several weeks without being asked this.  Followed the steps but it wanted a validation key, which I didn't have.  Anyway  took it to my computer man who'd installed it, and he said about 1 in 40 people with W 7 have been getting this message at some point.  He inserted a device in a USB port and that was that oroblem quickly sorted out.

I can now post pics from the internet on MW, but how can I do this in an email?

btw it seems that the intermittent problem I'm having with the screen freezing when I copy & paste (not just on MW) is probably due to a fault with the clipbboard.

I give up with our computer (from the UK) throwcomputer  Had major problems with it, so have reinstalled everything, but can't get ruddy internet to work and bloody printer keeps going offline everytime we turn computer off, which is a pain when it comes to printing off the kids homework.  They are fabulous things but complete pains at times!  When I have about 10 hours spare, I'll take a laptop down and see if I can work through the internet problems retard

I've managed to re-direct everything that was in my Inbox into Trash.

I did a Filter to Delete one entry (I thought) but before I could stop hitting Enter to complete it, I noticed briefly that I'd selected All.

I went into the Filter list through Settings and deleted the entries, although there were only two listed, but it has made no difference. My thread notifications are still going into Trash.

Mark just sent me a PM, which hadn’t been mentioned as a Filter, and that went into Trash too.

I’ve tried Filtering things as “Never Spam”, but that hasn’t worked either.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

So are you saying you created a Gmail Filter for all MurraysWorld emails and accidently set it to have all of them go to Trash and now you want to remove the Filter?

Yes but I've removed the Filter, but I seemed to have done something else that has put everything straight into Trash.

So are emails still going to trash? If so, Then you have a filter still enabled. Look through them all here: https://mail.google.com/mail/#settings/filters

If emails no longer go to trash but you want to move back the ones that did, then you need to do an advanced search for the 'noreply@' murraysworld email address and then highlight all the emails that come up from the search result and send them to Inbox.

As in edit or quote the post and then copy the link to the picture?

You can't do this in e-mails the same way as you there isn't a "link" for the picture unless the photo has been posted via a link and it's listed.

Otherwise, you can right click on the picture and it should give you an option for "copy this picture" and that's it. Right click in the next e-mail or wherever you want to post it and hit paste. I think. Will check to make sure. Smile

EDIT: Options are actually "Copy Link url" /" Copy Image URL"/ " Copy Image"

These options should appear in an e-mailed picture as well. Let me know if not.
