First, you need to remove 4 screws to replace/remove your hard drive. (sm)
Once the screws are all removed, the hard drive (4 x 4 x 2) is sitting in the bottom of the cage. This won't always be the situation, (some really cheap cages are open at the bottom, so the instant the last screw is removed the drive drops if you aren't holding on). Oddly enough, this is the most critical stage of replacing a hard drive, in the sense that removing the drive through the case where the ribbon cables are bunched up and over the CPU and heatsink is most likely to create another problem. If the cables are long enough, you can leave them attached to the hardrive as you slide it out, but don't try pulling through a mess, clear a path first. If you are discarding the entire unit, dont worry about  being gentle handed.
You can remove the built-in shortcut from the Insert key. sm
Go into Tools, Customize, then click the Keyboard button. Scroll down and click on All Commands in the left window. Scroll down the right window and click on the Overtype command. Click on the command in the current keys box, then click Remove.
You only remove the ones you want to remove
the one with the i-d-i-o-t remark in it as you had already been asked to do.
Did they remove you from one account (sm)

and put you on a more difficult account?  It could be the bait and switch.  They might save the other account for favorites.

I have about 20 little hairs to remove. About how much
I had to remove one from the kitchen a little

It was the middle of the night, as I was walking towards the kitchen, I noticed the snake (maybe 14" long, maybe 2" in diameter) side winding towards the refrigerator.  I am a nature person but only to a certain degree, so don't want the snakes in my home or any reptile for that matter.  I bent down as far as I could with my arthritic hips, scooped the snake up into a dust pan with my arthritic fingers as fast as I could (which wasn't very fast) and walked it up my very steep driveway towards a nearby drain.  I didn't want to kill it, just get it far away from the house as I could.  I never heard from it again.  However, I have bird feeders near the house and maybe that is why I had to even deal with it being in my home in the first place.  Not much of a reptile or insect person.  I remove the lizards from the house too instead of killing but will spray or destroy insects.



Potatoes might help...Then remove them.
Good luck.
They had to remove "American"
from their name because it's no longer an American association - but where is the integrity the claim?
Remove Spyware...
The best method for removing Spyware is called "Spybot Search and Destroy" It is available from downloads.com. http://www.download.com/3001-8022_4-10804822.html that page will start the download right away, it's a safe link. It is also a free program. Spybot will clean the PC, and when you run the "immunize" program it will keep things safer. Also if you install "Teatimer" which is included, it will warn you if something is trying to make a change, such as a website that tries to change your home page or add to the registry. Teatimer can become annoying when you are installing software though, because it pops up every time the new software tries to make a change to warn you, and you have to click "approve change" if you're in the middle of installing something.

On another note, I have found that just running Firefox instead of Internet Explorer has saved me from many problems as well.

My 2 cents.
I cannot remove DQS for a year now

I have been unable to uninstall DocQScribe for a year now from my computer. 

Has anyone else had these problem or can help me remove DQS from my computer.

I have already tried to removed from the program's list under the startup button as well as the add/remove program section.  I keep getting an error message not allowing me to remove the program from my computer.



I went into add/remove programs, then had to go into
start and search, and it still was coming back. If you Google you can find out how others have gotten rid of it also, that helped me a lot. OMG - that is awful, isnt it, that message that keeps coming up haha,

happy 'deleting'

Ugh, no. I would remove it from the house if I dared.
I do have to keep books out of the office, though.
Administrator: Can you remove the link for me?
I put the link for the Spheris article below, without realizing how long it was! Can you remove it as it is distorting my page?! Thanks!!
I use Registry Mechanic and it does remove--
old and unwanted/unneeded registries from your registry. What you saw was probably just an advertisement and had not actually run a scan. It is good to have a program that does scan and clean out your registry though, as it frees up much needed hard drive space and keeps unwanted invaders that creep into your registry unknown by you when you visit other sites. I don't know anything about the program that was advertised to you though. Just my experiences.
how do I remove page break?
in MW Word.  I should know this, but apparently I do not.  Thank you.
Edited to remove place of employment. sm

That might be a little too much information. 

Can someone tell me how to remove a word from spell check?

I'm using ExText (Word based?), ran spell check, and accidentally clicked on 'Add' (adding a misspelled word) when I meant to click on 'Change' (to change it to the correctly spelled word).  I know, I know, I shouldn't be using the mouse, I should be using the Keystrokes anyway, right?.  LOL 

But now that I have a misspelled word in spell check, how do I remove it?  Does anyone know?  TIA!

Remove Service Pack 3 and go back to

Find SP3 and remove it.
Enough about Kristen Pineda and all her aliases. We remove posts as we see them, but
this person uses aliases, different email addresses, and IP addresses.  WE DO WATCH.  If you were taken by this person, deal with the authorities.
Thanks! Maybe I'll remove the caps from Failure!! I do use all expanders
almost exactly as you have described!  Its my account that specifically wants verbatim and NO canned text.  They must "know" about that, and want to make sure they get their pennies worth out of the MTs!! 
Does anyone know of a free program that will completely remove Starware - nm
I'm not going to remove this thread but ask that religious discussion be moved

Changing to Final only hides the tracked changes, it does not remove them. sm
To make sure that all your tracked changes are removed from the document, you must accept all changes. In Word 2003, click the little arrow beside the Accept Change button on the Reviewing toolbar, and choose Accept All Changes.
They don't remove eyes based on transcribed medical reports. SM

Hate to burst your bubble - we're important, but not that important.

I take great pride in doing great work and doing a bunch of it.

Can the Administrator remove the Christmas tree cursor from the other boards? :) nm

Replace semicolon with comma, remove comma
As everyone said, you have to have it assigned back to you...(sm)
It's actually not a part of ExText that you do it in. The program that handles the voice jobs is Dictaphone's JobLister. Not only would you have to have the rights to access it, you would have to have the program loaded on your pc. This is, with most companies, only given to team leads and QA.
I have always had an access # assigned....
If you could get into a records system without a private passcode, that would be a major HIPAA situation! I always have a sign-in ID asigned by the facility for any C-phone account I have worked; but it is strange that you are hearing a beep and not an operator giving instructions. I've never had that situation before. If you don't have an account Lead you can contact to get help, I'm thinking you'd best tell your employer this isn't working! Good luck.
being assigned same dictators
does help you get to know them so you can get fast with them and set up macros and auto-text but when are these MT companies going to realize that and quick putting us in pools? I realize they have to have their accounts covered 24-7 but this is no way to make money and really increases your chance of errors. It would be beneficial for both MT and the company to assign us our own dictators. There are only really a few companies out there who do this.....what a shame!!!
how is your work assigned?
I just started with a new company and very frustrated with how they handle work assignments.  I'd like to hear from other MTs how they feel about it and how they are assigned their work.  I have always been assigned a specific amount of work each day or worked a specific amount of hours.  When my time was up or my jobs were done, then I was done for the day.  This new company is doling out work in a very unusual way.  It is a clinic Ortho account and she assigns work as it comes in, which is understandable.  But if I happen to be gone for an hour or so and she gets work in, she will assign it to another MT who can do it right then and there.  I have asked her to send me a whole gob of work each evening so I've got work that will last me the next day.  She refuses to do it that way so I end up sitting here all day long waiting on her to e-mail me saying, "I've sent you a few files."  And so far that's all it's been, a FEW files.  Nothing I can't finish in under 30-45 minutes.  This is just ridiculous but the line rate is so good that I am hesitant to try to find something else.  Anybody else have this problem? 
assigned work
Yes, I know exactly what you mean. I have the same problem. But I have an acute care backup account to work on. I prefer the other account though because I am used to it. It sounds like we work for the same company. LOL. When I get the clinic it is sent like you said as it comes in and sometimes if another MT is available she will send it to them. I work on a clinic general surgery account. And I wished they would let me do the accounts work exclusively. But no it is given to one MT one time and another the next time. But I have the backup account so I can't complain but that is how they do the clinic work.
Assigned accounts....sm
There's a lot to be said for "assigned jobs" if it's done on a fair basis and if the person doing the assigning doesn't have their own agenda, i.e, where the "Lead MT" does the assigning of jobs as well as having to get her own lines in.  Who do you think is going to get the best dictations??  Do you think she/he will assign the good, easy dictations to the MTs on a fair basis and keep the lousy, crappy, ESL dictations for herself ?  Come on!  For the most part, management doesn't give a hoot as long as work gets done and is kept within TAT. 
How can you tell if you're being assigned certain jobs or not? sm

It seems to be as if I've been getting mostly the yucky dictators for a while now, with some good ones being thrown in here and there. I know a while back with this company (been here 1-1/2 years), I noticed a good change with getting assigned same clinics (clinic acct., obviously). It was even brought up at a phone conference, and the VP acknowledged they'd changed tactics and were assigning accts. as opposed to just letting us all in the pool. Said it was a good change for the company, and we MTs agreed as well.

But, for the last couple of months or so, I've noticed a downward trend in my dictators, and the job numbers aren't in order, just here and there, even different clinics popping in and out. I emailed the Account Liason and asked her if there was something going on here, and she said she didn't know, she'd have to check with the MT supervisor. She then came back & said no, there's been no change or assignments (which I reminded her the VP herself had said there was), and that I was just getting the luck of the draw.

However, something I'd read on this board got me to thinking. If these people in the position to control these jobs, such as the AL and who all else, are also typing and getting paid by the line, naturally they could pull in all the good jobs themselves. If they do get paid by production, I don't think they should be able to control the ques at all.

I just don't know whether to pursue this line of questioning or not, since I'd already tried once, and I'm not 100% sure of myself, just suspicious. Like, the other accts. jobs that are thrown in between while working on one clinic is usually a bad one.

Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.


Also, should I ask for a line-rate increase? I've been here 1-1/2 years and am making the same as I started, .08/line.

ask them about your assigned (or not) doctors - be careful with KS
also, no auto backup with Lanier footpedal, can only work when Lanier is available.
Well we are individually assigned work...sm
The manager assigns the work out to each individual MT so I am wondering how much work the other MTs are getting on the account.
It was simply the work from your assigned accounts.
More of our work is transcription based rather than ASR. However, we are in a training initiative so all employees will be prepared for handling ASR.

Are you using a Cphone? Don't the files keep feeding into your que or are you assigned? You'll
I do have assigned accounts and even those I can't get back within 24-48 hours at end of week. s
I think I need to have on-call coverage to help, but I don't have much time to train...I sometimes just think it takes less time to do it myself than to train someone new, but I'm just tired of working all the time. If I could find people who have so much experience that they can just be able to work and get it right by having a sample report and a template...hard to believe, but not everyone can do that....Also need a c-phone to access work on my system.
I assigned single letters to very common labs SM
For instance, i is for calcium (i just because I wasn't already used it for abbreviations with low-range numbers). Calcium 10.3 would be i103. Creatinine 0.7 is e07, e used for the same reason. I like it.

10-20 red cells is 1020rc and 10 to 20 red cells is 1020rc', but I'm not crazy about it. The "tttrc" I used to use was just as basic but better; I just wanted a system that would be memorable and allow me to enter lots of values without conflicting with other abbreviations. Maybe someone will offer a good system so I can change without bothering to think about it. :)
This is becoming the normal, unfortunately. To get assigned docs & accts. makes for good line
I assume you are assigned number much like a license number that can be verified through the AAMT.

Beyond that, I have no idea.

I use shortcut
but this has happened to me with it and I was told to always make sure you open your expansion program behind the document you are working in.

What are "Shortcuts" and "Windows" expanders?  I don't like the Expander I have and I can't use the one I bought about five years ago.

No shortcut!
Notice all these products say somewhere in fine print (even on commercials) something like "works best with a sensible diet and exercise." Proper diet and exercise the ONLY answer to losing weight.
Another ? Has anyone used PRD and ShortCut?

I'm having to switch Expanders too and have used PRD.  While researching it seems that ShortCut is very similar to PRD.   Does anyone know if you can import Expander word list from Dos to Windows?
