    Fail Handle

    For your education .......... I still don't know what a fail handle is but found what caused it. A few days earlier, I had to restore my computer to an earlier date and in doing so all Windows system files were duplicated. Not only Control Panel but Sys and Sys32, a total of 1,737 duplicates. What a pain, but I used AcuteFinder which allowes you to establish parameters so that helped. Now I need to find out how to eleminate this duplication if a future restore is necessary. Thanks for your comments .........

    Fail Handle

    No virus, no spyware, no malware, have not able to find out what the h--- a "fail handle" is in MS Knowledge base or anywhere else. File handle yes, Fail handle no. Surely someone knows ..................

    Fail Handle

    When I try to open Conrol Panel from the Start button, I get the following error message in a small window:
  5. Just so no one thinks they can purchase an unlocked, unbranded Razr V3 for stated prices ..... Tiger Direct quotes $327.99 for the silver and $349.99 for the black.
  6. Thank everyone for their suggestions. After a few days and a mild blast with an air hose, the phone returned to a normal battery life and all is OK .............
  7. I recently dropped my Razr in the toilet. Stupid no ?? I retrieved it, turned it off, dried it out over a lamp overnight, started it up and all features work perfectly. The problem is the battery only lasts 9 to 10 hours with minimal usage. I tried a new battery, same result. Razr has the red dot feature that shows when a phone has been exposed to water.. Mine has approximately 1/8 of a red dot. Does anyone know a remedy for the quick discharge??? Thanks,
  8. I need to transfer all programs and data from an old IBM T30 to a new IBM T43p. I don't need to transfer the OS which is XP Pro on both. I was considering using Norton Ghost 9.0 but read so many bad reviews regarding the software. However, it is the only software I find that advertises peer to peer migration. I have read so much data, that I don't know if I need to clone or migrate. I have also looked at Acronis True Image 8.0 and Acronis Migrate Easy. Thanks for any advice.

    IE6 Sp2

    Is there a solution to the problem "internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close ..... so sorry ........."? I have tried all the MS suggestions but nothing works. I have no BHO's other than Google. I use some sites that will not function with Firefox, so that is not a solution. I have run Ad-Aware and SpyBot and they show no problems. My OS is XP Sp2 with all the current updates. This happens several times per day, normally when I have more than one site open. Thanks for any suggestions as this is irritating .........
