Wonder how Betty's gettiing on on holiday, now normally the Isle of Wight should be a good rest for her, however knowing her she'll no be at peace for two minutes. Whit a lovely woman she is! smile.gif Do you know that on two minutes of meeting her you feel as though you've known her all your life, you know those very few people in this world that you do that with, well she's one of them.
Ah better stop talkin' aboot her, she'll catch me!! ( Ah'll jist say it was Catherine)
wee mags
aye she is I will vouch for that when she came here for our wee meet we all were like long lost pals she stole the show ,naw it was a competion between her and Catherine and ma wee lassie cannae forget Marion ,Betty was known as the pole dancer,aye yea hiv tae love her biggrin.gif

Hi folks, my daughter got the computer working tonight (Friday) and I was able to use it just before midnight, thankfully in time to say farewell to Barbara. So far the puter hasn't shut down on me or sent me any more scary messages. One thing though, is still not corrected and that is the tool bar (I think that's what it's called) the bar along the bottom of the screen where it shows START, OPEN PROGRAMMES, TIME, DATE and DAY etc. My bar is now at least double the height it used to be and time,date and day are layered one on top of the other - three high, so are some symbols. We can't figure out how it got that way or how to fix it. It's not like that for the other users, just me. Anyone got any ideas? Anyway it's after two a.m. so I am off to bed. Will catch you all tomorrow if the computer doesn't go on strike again.
Heather
Boots, try clicking on start , then click control panel, then appearance and themes, then click task bar. This lets you change where you want and how you want your task bar to look.

Or you can try a Restore.

It may or may not work for you but, that is how it works on my PC.

Maybe someone else with more knowledge of PCs can advise you.
wee mags
boots why dont you post this in the technical post maybe some one there can help,I dont know if some people dont check this post jist a wee help I hope wink.gif
boots
Heather and Mags, thank you both. I've tried to do do as you suggested Heather but as I followed along the different stages, I was unable to locate "APPEARANCE" so I went onto"Task Bar"anyway and tried clicking on different things there but didn't have any luck, well I guess I had some luck "cause though I didn't manage to make things any better, I don't appear to have made them any worse. Now Heather, when you suggested going to RESTORE, did you mean I should stay on control panel and then hit restore? You probably did and I didn't. I closed everything and went back to read your post again, then pressed restore. In retrospect, that seems to have been very stupid.. When my daughter gets home, I'll ask her to try out your suggestions (Gawd knows, she's tried everything else and she'll be happy to try this. If that doesn't work then Mags, I'll go with your suggestion and try the Technical thread. My daughter is convinced that I must have hit some key by mistake on the keyboard to cause the problem. That could very well be it as I don't have very good control over my fingers, they're curled into my palms with the exception of my forefingers with which I type but they don't always go where they're supposed to either so I could have hit anything. Thankyou both again.
Heather
Boots, I can only say where System Restore is on my PC, yours may be different.

I click Start, then All Programmes, then on the list shown, click Accessories. There is a tiny arrow beside Accessories I click that and another list comes up. On this list there is another arrow beside System Tools, I click that and another list with System Restore comes up, click on System Restore, this allows the PC to be changed back to an earlier date.

Melody
I'm glad your sorted out now Boots, well done Heather and Mags, 'technicians to the stars' smile.gif See ye never know whit happens on these boards, something nice happens just when ye least expect it.
Ah'm here somebody talk tae me!
Angela Chick
hi melody, a was just sitting here thinking to myself a will go into bettys and see whats happening, av'e been out in the sunshine all afternoon great weather eh.





angelachick
Melody
Brilliant weather Angela, just imagine how life would be if we had this everyday. No more hundled up against the wind and rain, drying your washing outdoors all the time, no more brollys in handbags. We go out prepared for every eventuality usually don't we? Layers in case it's too hot, coat in case it rains, wellies in case it's a downpour. It certainly makes a lovely change, I was in the garden most of the day, I was supposed to be helping with the work but to be honest I just kind of enjoyed watching all the hard work and sitting letting the world go by. smile.gif Oh happy days!
Angela Chick
aye melody, sitting in the garden nothing nicer, wonder how betty is getting on at least the weather has been good for her, talking of friends not seen any posts from catherine the last few days wonder wit she's been up to laugh.gif

Ach there's mer than enough tae go roon, just like your heart and good cooking. Ma Glesga.
Melody
Me and my shadow walking down the avenue,
Me and my shadow not a soul to tell our troubles to,
And when it's twelve o'clock we'll climb the stairs,
We'll never knock cause nobody's there,
Just me and my shadow all alone and feeling blue.

I couldn't get on to GG yesterday afternoon, at first I thought it was my computer but I could get on to other pages so the problem was somewhere else. My machine's still being a bit dodgy with me and I still don't have my task bar fixed so later today I will post on the Technical page as Mags suggested.

It's time for me to get to bed but before going I want to say hi to Melody Mags, Heather, Annie Laurie and the rest of the gang. Will chat with you all later if my comp doesn't freeze on me again. I think maybe it joined the teamsters. Goodnight all.
betty2
Problem last night was all round boots ,but we're back tae square wan the day. Yes I had a great time , different kind of holiday from what I usually go for but I thoroughly enjoyed myself Y/no me always willing to try something new.

Hi Jimmy D. I'm using WINDOWS XP. I just bougtht the computer a couple of months ago. Prior to that I had a Windows98.
Four family members are listed as users and I guess we all have different settings. (I don't speak computerese, so bear with me)
When I come on, I haveto click on my own name, then I'm informed the computer is getting "My own personal settings" after that I just go to START. There really is only two of us using the comp. on a regular basis and most of the time the trouble seems to be on my page (or whatever it's called). I"m getting a guilt complex.
When I came on today, I got a message saying Twister had found a Trojan Horse virus...that was before I did anything, so I pressed CLEAN as suggested and am hoping we'll be rid of it.

Hi gang, I'll beback a little later.
betty2
Haste yi back boots, This is like sittin at the dentists, naebody's talkin ohmy.gif jist wee bits o nuthin here an therr.

Jimmie D. Apparently I should have told you Windows XP Professional. I thought that was what the P stood for. Betty, I'd love to stay on but I'm feeling really lousey. I need to feel better by tomorrow as my wee grandaughter graduates from Elementary School and will go on to middle school in the Fall. She's in french immersion and has to give a speech tomorrow on behalf of her class, part of it in English and part in French. She's extremely nervous but proud to at having been chosen. Naturally I'm very proud of her too andI really want to be there. I can't believe I'm heading for bed at this hour. Three or fourAM is my usualtime. G'Night All.

Have a nice day boots, and most certainly a proud one . Early to bed early to rise, big day ahead smile.gif
