The meeting was chaired by RodB. Two people attended for their first time: Cecelia and MaryP. Here's the list of topics discussed during the meeting: 1. Windows problems, Norton Virus scan - TedT Ted reported that after uninstaling some programs and/or deleting some files or shortcuts Norton Utilities would give the following message the next time the computer was started: "The following Windows problems have been detected. The key "infobase\shell\open\command" refers to an invalid command entry "C:ANCESTRY\AGL\BVIEWS.EXE%1". After clicking finish the following message appears: Invalid ActiveX/com entry - one problem. Mike suggested using Google to see if there had been any reports made about the BVIEWS reference. Tony suggested checking for the BVIEWS file in the Windows directory (sys.ini or win.ini) and deleting it. 2. OwenC. AlanM told us that Owen was in Calvary hospital after an accident on his pushbike. 3. Index - Greg 4. Windows 2000 Professional - Tony 1. Start up procedure takes about 5 minutes???? Checked for background tasks etc but I cannot seem to improve the start up time My Widows 98Se starts up in about 30 seconds Other users seem to be having the same problems. 2. When I use a start up script for PCUG I log on OK initially, but if I tick the "save password box" the second time round I get the message "password not recognised" and I have to untick the "Save password Box'' and re-enter the password. I have tried rewriting the script and loading service pack 1 etc but I cannot use the "save password facility". Help would be appreciated 5. Harvard Story - JohnA 6.a. AcerFax can't attach Re item (6) (a) Ted told of a friend who was not able to send an attachment with a fax. The hardware is an Acer HCF 56 k Data/Fax PCI modem which was supplied with two floppy disks but not a CD. Merv offered to assist with locating the appropriate CD. Re item (6) (b) The computer, modem etc referred to above was purchased at Chandlers at Belconnen which has since closed down. Enquiries made at the new Southern Energy/Betta Electrical in Belconnen Mall resulted in the following phone number being obtained for people with equipment still under warranty from Chandlers: 1800 077 456. 7. Security - Joan 8. REAL -- theride.com uses Real Player- JeffC. The map site theride.com as described by Terry Bibo, is quite impressive, but not entirely accurate for choosing best routes - but undoubtedly it will improve with time. See for example the recommended route Canberra to Bungonia. One benefit Jeff encountered was the offer of a new version of Real Player - basic on its homepage. The download took about 20 minutes but it is a considerable improvement over the previous version. ======== Regards, Trevor ¤º°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤øø¤º°`°º¤¤º°`°º A FINE is a tax for doing WRONG.
