CMOS battery in laptop is dead, can I use MS-DOS date & timecommands? by SlickRCBD[_3_]
The CMOST battery in an old laptop of mine is dead. I need to be able to open & edit Word documents away from computers once a week for the rest of the month. It's not worth it to shell out several hundred dollars for a new laptop when this is the first time I've needed this one in years. Is there...

Copy/pasting a custom option in Folder options by SlickRCBD[_3_]
I'm having a brain fart here configuring some file types. I'm trying to make an option to "Open with Office" on several different file types, so they will keep their defaults but let me open them directly to Office when necessary. I seem to remember that there was a faster way to do this than...

Changing all the names on an old second-hand laptop by SlickRCBD[_3_]
Is there a list somewhere of registry entries for owner's names? I am using an OLD laptop to run Microsoft Word 97 in night school until they can fix the scheduling screw-up and put us in a lab. This laptop was given to me over 5 years ago by my mother's cousin when she upgraded. I changed the...

FREE alternative to Ghost for emergency backup of a dying Win98 HD incase it dies before I can get a replacement? by SlickRCBD[_3_]
The hard drive in my Windows 98SE computer is failing. It's not always readable when I turn on the computer and makes some odd clicking noises, yet turning the computer off, and then on again seems to fix the problem, although last time it took 3 tries. I intend to replace the HD ASAP, however, it...

New computer by JayAr
Hi to all. After 11 years of using my WIN 98SE finally got me a new computer. I want to either donate or just give away the old one. Should I reformat the HD? If so, how's the best way to do it? (never done it) TIA J.R.
