Internet Explorer
Thanks very much! I'll check that out.
I have Internet Explorer
I have never had a problem before like this with it. I just sent tech support an E-mail and I will see what they might say.

Internet Explorer 7
Internet Explorer trouble
Has anyone ever had IE just poop out on them? I was able to log onto IE yesterday morning with no problems. Then, about 2 hours later I needed to go online and research a medication. I got the following error message: "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error. Program:CProgram FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe. This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information." I tried running TrojanHunter Guard, Ad-aware spyware detection, and even tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE but it won't let me do that. I've downloaded another browser called Opera which was recommended to me just so I can get online. Anybody else had this problem? Thanks for any help or advice.
Internet Explorer Trouble.
First see the following Link:


and then how to resolve it:


If you are using Internet Explorer (Microsoft) sm

Go up to the top and click on "Tools", then "Internet Options". Click "Clear History". That should do it.

If you set your history to only keep one or two days' worth of info, it will automatically clear itself.

It would be a good idea to click "clear files" on the same screen as well.  You should also click "clear cookies", but that will delete all your passwords and saved information. However, some of those "cookies" can be harmful so you do need to clear them out once in a while.

Ok, try repairing your Internet Explorer.

Go to Start Menu, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs.  Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer, highlight it, hit the Add/Remove Button.  A screen will pop up with three options, install, repair, or uninstall.  Click the Repair radio button, hit OK, then reply Yes.  After it's done restart your computer and try going to your website again.

If that doesn't work and you can't get it to work through the Mozilla browser either, let me know and I'll see what else I can think up.  Also, update and run your virus and spyware scanners to be sure it's not a virus locking you out.  If you need links to free ones, AVG is good for virus, and either Spybot Search and Destroy or AdAware are good for spyware.  I think both are available at Download.com.

Here's the link for Mozilla Firefox, which is supposedly a more secure browser than Internet Explorer anyway.


I have an Internet Explorer question...sm

all of a sudden when I type in an address in the address bar on IE and hit enter, it takes me to "organize favorites" and makes a new folder.  Anyone know how to fix this or turn it off so that when I type in an address it will just to the web page I am looking for?

Thanks for any help!

More like 2 seconds, if using Internet Explorer

It would help if you were a little more specific about what the issues are that are making your frustrated.

"Cleaning your cache" and deleting cookies are very simple and easy ways to keep your computer free of adware and spyware, although you should have a firewall and run a good malware/adware program frequently.

See link below.

Internet explorer problems - sm

I have I/E 7 - and I get this error message:

I/E has encountered a problem and needs to close. My options are to debug, send, or don't send

Have tried to find help online, but nothing that I can understand so far

Is anyone else having the same problem and/or had the same problem and know what to do about it 

Thank you

If you have Internet Explorer, click on View, then

Lost toolbar on Internet Explorer
Can anyone tell me how to restore the tool bar with the buttons such as home page, refresh, go back arrow, forward arrow?  I know that there are other buttons on there but those are the few that I use most often and can remember.  My guess is that something has been inadvertantly turned "off" but I don't know where to look for it.
A much better browser to use than Internet Explorer. You will love it!

don't send them thru ES -- find the actual file thru Windows Explorer on your computer. nm
The trial version I had before did find and

that my Spybot and Ad-Aware missed.  I had some nasty at the time that my trial version of Ewido took care of quite nicely that the others couldn't.  Definitely worth the download. 

So glad you posted the above, about the newer version (still had the old expired exe's in a file on my computer just as a reminder to think about buying it at some point).

You could use your internet search engines to find
"grand rapids, MI, jobs" and get lots of hits. I'd also check monsterjobs.com for your area, and your state Dept. of Labor should also have a site where you could find jobs in your area. If you are unsure about the search engines, try google.com. It's a great tool for finding anything you could possibly want. God bless.
You go, Tinks! You'll have to let us know so we can find it on the internet and see it.

I feel exactly the same as y'all.  I think we could start by sending letters not  e-mails to our respective state legislators.  And it would certainly not be a bad idea to send a letter to the presidential candidates.  I bet Hillary would do something about it.  Anyways I hope she would.  My SIL is Indian.  He was down here last weekend and told me he received an e-mail encouraging him to get into MT for only $450!  he's a bus driver.  Scam, scam, scam.  He also told me that Indians are all crooks, and those are his words.  he told me many stories of people stealing, bribes being expected, etc., even from the law and customs officials and the post office, on and on.  So there ya go.  Some may think our info is safe over there, I think not. 

I have thought about contating our local TV/newspaper for the same reason -- to expose the dirty little secret at the big hospital here in town.

Does anyone know where I can find a Zeky D rocking horse - I have looked everywhere on internet nm
They're still at version 7 and version 8 is supposed to come out this Fall, which may be compatib

This is why I uploaded the 4.15 version. It's a previous version
Works is a dumbed down version of Word and Excel. You get the full version of Word in the Suite.
The Works Suite is a cheaper way of getting a full version of Word if you don't want or need the other applications in Office.
You can still do it through Explorer.

To select a group of consecutive files, left mouse click on the first file, hold down the shift key, scroll to the last file in the group you want to move and left mouse click on it. (The files in between will also be selected.) Continue to hold the left mouse button down but let go of the shift key. Drag the group to the CD drive.

To select several non-consecutive file, follow the above steps but instead of the shift key, use the Control key. This will select each file you click on separately. If you click on an incorrect file, simple click again and it will de-select that file.

Using a combination of the shift and control keys will perform allow you to select non-consecutive groups of files.

Internet based transcription - need advice on how to go internet
Can anyone offer any help/advice on how go about becoming internet based from a call in system, or how to keep the call in system for the docs and put transcriptionists on the internet?  Not sure where to start to get information on how to go about doing this. Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.
Yes, I did know that and sometimes that works better than Explorer.
It all depends on what you're more comfortable with. Glad that it worked out for you.
Yes, you can do this from Windows Explorer. sm
Find the ShortHand folder on the main drive. Look for your dictionary names ending with the spf extension. You can copy those to a CD or flash drive or email them to yourself.
Use Windows Explorer. Are you using
WinXP? Click the setup.exe file.
Delete them in Windows Explorer. nm
The easiest answer would be use Explorer. sm
More information would be helpful. Is this an Olympus recorder? Is there software that came with the recorder that is needed in order to download?

As an example, my OMs download dictation to their computer using Microsoft Explorer (not Internet Explorer, IE).
Intenet Explorer Problems

Sometime agao, I was having probelms with my Internet Explorer. I finally had to call a help desk. I don't know if this will help you or not, but these are the instructions i was given:

Turn off or unplug moden.

Turn off computer.

Wait about 3 minutes.

Turn on moden and wait under 3 lights are on solidly (cannot be flashing).

Reboot computer.

The lights on my moden are:






I hope this will work for you.  If not, you should have a number to call a help desk.




Use Windows Explorer, drag and drop. sm
OR you can copy specific files/directories from your main drive to your back up drive.
If you want to work on the internet from home, take an internet course
But only from Andrews School or M-TEC. Many companies will waive the 2-years' experience requirement and will test and hire you if you go to either of those schools. Do NOT bother with At Home Professions, Penn Foster, US Career Institute, or ESPECIALLY Trans-Am, which is also known as Trans-SCAM and is a total ripoff. You will have a VERY difficult time getting hired without experience unless you choose Andrews School or M-TEC. Yes, they cost more, but that's because they are excellent training programs, not "correspondence courses."
Go to the "My Computer" icon or Windows Explorer (sm)
And click on the C: drive. Should be a folder named InstText. Inside that is a Glossary folder. Either copy the whole folder or go inside and copy the glossaries you want, then copy to your flash drive. Then install Instant Text to the new computer, attach the flash drive and copy the glossary files to C:/InstText on the new computer.

Win XP? Were you changing folder options in Windows Explorer? sm
Go back into Windows Explorer and look at the options on the general tab of folder options. I no longer have XP and don't remember the exact name of the option you need to clear the check, but you should be able to recognize it.
If it's a retail version you can. If it's an OEM version, you can't.
You don't need to export. Just double-click the glo file in Windows Explorer
Just drag and drop using Windows Explorer. No need for special software.
This is all stated assuming that you are using a Windows Operating System, XP or Vista. Put a blank CD into your CD drive, open Explorer, find the file(s) and/or folder(s) you want to put on the CD, left mouse click and drag them to the CD drive.
This is a very basic computer skill/concept. You copy files to another drive using Explorer.

There are very detailed instructions in the Help files that accompany Windows. You can read those for more information.

Basically, you open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer). Locate the files you want to copy, highlight and right mouse click. Choose Copy. Now, find the location where you want to copy these files (usually another drive like D: or H:, whereever the flash/jump/thumb drive is located) and paste the files there.


go to chat room on web site and find out. i'm working but if you find out, let me know.
creepy dude.
I find most of my abbreviations here. Scroll all the way down until you find the abbreviation box.
What version of IT are you using?

And what application are you using IT with?

You may want to email IT tech support directly.

Kind regards,


What version of IT are you using?

What version of Instant Text V Pro are you using? Do you have your linking options established?

To find out what version you are using, double-click on the blue title-bar in Instant Text and then go to Help and About Instant Text. There you will see the exact version and built date that you are using. If you are using Instant Text V Pro but do not have a built date of October 2005, I would suggest downloading the latest revision from our website so you are using the most up-to-date version.

If you are using a previous version of IT, such as IT 3.0 or IT 3.5, I would recommend upgrading to version V Pro.

Also, please leave a message when you call so we can help you. If you do not get a tech on the phone, it is because we are on the other line helping other IT users. You can always email us directly if you need help as well.

Kind regards,


Maybe my version is too old
My Stedmans Spellchecker the is 2004 so maybe it is too old.  I sent an email to Stedman support and they sent one back stating that they do not guarantee that their  programs will work with Vista.  My electronic Stedman dictionary works though.  Thanks for your help
What version?
Version 4.16
I agree. I also have the newer version (4.16) and it plays dss files just fine for me, too.
the version of CS I use does NOT
use my version of Word. It is it's own separate platform and my autocorrect entries do not work in it. I will either use ShortHand or just copy and paste into my Word.
try this version
There was a similar discussion Friday, and someone provided a link to an older version of ES. I think this link takes you to that message.

Maybe on your version
But on mine, which is Microsoft Word 2002, it is squares, not circles.

Well, gosh... I guess everyone might not have the same thing!
same version
I have the same version.

thanks for the information...We just started using this a few months ago, but it just seems like there is no communication anymore with this job other than what work is avaialble and the mistakes you make...but I'm just going to start asking more questions.  My supervisor told me we are absolutely not allowed to type in Word...I tried it with one account that they said I could, and then she said to stop because it was messing things up.  So, I don't know what's up with that.

Have a good night...and thanks again!

which version? sm
we had Meditech magic and used Instant Text abbreviation expander. How about canned text? I had a lot of full routines in canned text that really helped.
Version 3
version 3.  Thanks for your help.  I type directly into Meditech.
what version?
We were on 4.6 and you entered R and the date and then hit look up, the best I can remember. but we were inhouse and could also go under drafts or signed under order entry if we could not remember the name. Circumstances were probably different for us.
