Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

  • Why does my letter disappear as soon as I type "Dear Sir" in Word?
  • Can Outlook Express and Outlook be used to read email on the same account?
  • What's the best way to repair a broken Internet Explorer install?
  • How can you sign onto two accounts at once on the same computer?

Why does my letter disappear as soon as I type "Dear Sir," in Word? Well, for the record, it shouldn't. Since it is, I would start by looking the various options in Tools, Auto Correct Options..., and perhaps most specifically the Auto Text entries.

Can Outlook Express and Outlook be used to read email on the same account? Certainly. You'll probably want to configure one (or perhaps both) to "leave messages on server" instead of deleting them, but there's no real reason this couldn't work.

What's the best way to repair a broken Internet Explorer install? Really, the best way, is simply to download the latest internet explorer and reinstall on top of your broken installation.

How can you sign onto two accounts at once on the same computer? Well, in Windows XP Home and Pro you can't. Under Windows 2000 and 2003 Server, you can use Remote Desktop, either from another computer, or even from the same computer, to create another session and log in with a different account.

Hi Leo,

your replies to: "How can you sign onto two accounts at once on the same computer?" leave me puzzled.

In WinXP Pro, I can be 'logged in' to two different accounts "at once", but I just can't use them both at once. Maybe that's how the question got interpreted (usage) but it's in fact possible to be logged in on both accounts at the same time. Also, I can use remote desktop on WinXP Pro as well, not just Server.

You are of course correct, the differnce being that on XPPro you can only be USING one account at a time ... even with remote desktop. With Win2k and Win2k3 Server you can be logged in and actively using multiple accounts simultaneously.

Norton Firewall keeps informing me that "ViewMgr" is trying to access the Internet. What is ViewMgr and should I be blocking it or allowing the program to access the Internet?
