10/15/2010 WOOHOO!

Friday, October 15, 2010

I am excited right now and have been for the last ten minutes or so. I have been dancing around my apartment doing the happy dance.

YES I AM VERY HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!

ARE YOU SHOCKED? I AM

Unfortunately no good news yet about a job but I do have some news for you and pictures to share for your enjoyment cause I all know how much you love my pictures and knittiables.

First off.

I want to say a special thanks to Lassare and to Krys for helping me to fix this stubborn and stupid computer. We, the computer and I are now friends again.

I was able to download CC Cleaner, Spybot and Registry Cleaner and Nuance PDF program onto my computer for free. Installed and ran these systems one at a time. Each program found numerous problems and did the necessary repairs on it.

After running Norton's Antivirus twice it found a hidden trojan and some weird thing and got rid of it. Now my system is running faster, not as fast as when I got it but fast enough for me.

I then logged onto Sparks and yes I can open up threads and leave messages on all my teams, feeds, friends blogs on so on. But the one thing I still couldn't do is to download the Spark Motivational Calendars, So I decided to give up and leave the hazzle of fixing it for another day. Maybe my BF could figure it out or maybe Window's7 could get back to me for the fix up link.

Then I started to think about people who used firefox/mozilla program So I decided to install it again and see if this time it would work.

Guess what it works. I can open up link and see what my friends have sent us. I can now download the Spark Calendars and view them and save them to my PC.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon That's me dancing the happy dance.

The other problem that I had today was this

As most of you know I have had so many problem with this MIO Watch that I won.
It keeps resetting the time and all the information to 01/010/2008
And last week it died so I have the watch repair guy put in a new lithium batter and it worked right up until 3pm or so today before it reset itself again . Ugh!

Even though I won it, it is not worth it to keep reset the date and all the data needed for this watch to do its job for me. It take least ten minutes to set the dang thing up.
So I took it off and went searching for my ped that I put on my waist band but I can't find it. Maybe it is in the wash or the hamper. I will go a look later.

Then I got to thinking again cause I do that all the time. I open up the back cleaned the contacts, batter, and spent ten minute resetting the darn thing and now it is working again.
So we shall see how long it keep time and my steps. So right this minute I have done 1518 steps and I know that I have done over 15,000 cause I did my Walk with Leslie and rode my bike.

Also the other day I told you about the city workers painting our streets and putting in the bike path.
Here are the pictures.






I sure didn't know it took all this to do the bike signs.
It was fun working on my computer while watching the guys stencils the street and doing their jobs.

I ended up not sleeping again last night cause my sinuses where acting up again, so I went to the doctors and she thinks that I may have sinusitis and a gland infection in my throat. So she gave me some samples of sudefed and nose spray and my prescription which I can't get no money and no CC right now.

Any ways when I finally got home my mom phoned and for the first time every noticed that I was not sounding good and I told her about my sinuses and what happen to my CC. Well you could have knocked my through a loop.

Tomorrow she is going to her bank and will be transferring money to my account so that I can get my script and some groceries, I have to pay her back, I knew that cause nothing is free from my mom. Even though she gives my sister money every month to help her pay her bills and put junk food in her mouth. She is my moms favorite kid after all.

Does it bother me. YES but I learnt to leave it alone.

At least she is lending me money so I am very pleased about that. So tomorrow I will go to Safeway's and get the stuff.

As for tonight's dinner I am giving a knitting lesson to my GF and she is bringing over some dinner for us. Sushi which I love.

So it will be a fun night to night. Time to forget all my worries, have a few laughs, knit and enjoy this evening.

Tomorrow is another day and I pray and hope that is goes even better than today.

Son on this wonderful note I as signing off cause MICH just parked her car.



Please forgive me if I spelled your names wrong. I am writing this very fast.

    Hey, Sandra....

I don't know why, but I couldn't post this to your blog, so I'm sending you an email instead...
Hey, Sandra....

I use Firefox all the time, and CCleaner should have cleared the cookies, etc, in IE, but you may want to try a "restore to system default" setting that IE has, if you really like that browser.

Tools,Internet Options, Advanced tab, Reset Internet Explorer settings section at the bottom, there's a RESET button... it will warn you that the settings can't be undone, etc, if you choose this button.

SOOO...if you've made changes, they will revert to the factory default.

Give it a try if you are feeling adventurous.

    So glad your doing a happy dance Sandra, you certainly deserve one. Glad your mom is lending you the money to get the medication and a few groceries, as starting the med. is important before the infection gets out of hand. Glad you can put aside the issue of mom favoring your sister, as that is more helpful in the long run for you. I have two children and have never treated one better than the other. It was my mother many years ago telling me that she could never favor one child or grandchild over the other( of course there was just my twin sister and I)---but I remembered that and followed through when my children came along . Hope each coming day you have cause to do the happy dance. Sounds too that you have some good friends, they can be a blessing .

    Sandra,

I am so happy that you are doing your happy dance...life is so much better when our computers play nice. I am glad CCleaner and SpyBot were helpful, along with the others. Not to mention firefox (my personal favourite but I have been convinced to give google chrome a shot, it is certainly FAST...we shall see how I like it after using it for a while!) is playing nice too...that is what I could call a GREAT COMPUTER DAY!!

Very glad that your mom is lending you the money to get your medications. Have you looked to see if you qualify for Fair PharmaCare in BC which is based on income. Here is the link http://www.health.gov.bc.ca/pharmac
are/plani/planiindex.html you can apply on-line or by phone and it sounds like there is little to no waiting time if you qualify...worth looking into!

Things just seem to be falling into place for you today...sounds like maybe just maybe you are turning the corner!! Have a wonderful evening!!

Keep Smiling!
Rhonda

Still!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Still here
Still breathing
still exercising
still not sleeping
still not hungry enough
still fighting to fix the computer
Stil trying to stay postitive and happy
Still having problems with my life and Mom

I haven't given up yet, almost came close to it today. My credit card company called to say that someone purchased a lot of junk on put it on my credit card in a strange place that I have never heard of before or been to. How can one person be in two different places. So now the fraud team is looking into this mess and in the mean time I can't use my CC to buy groceries for dinner tonight.

So I am stuck having one piece of toast with butter and grape jelly, a coffee and tons of water. Hopefull when brother comes home he will bring something for us to eat.

That is what I meant by things are just getting better and better. I am shaking my head.

Still I have to put a smile on my face and move on, pretend that nothing is wrong, get out and do something.

Just letting you all know what is happening with my life.

Signing off now before my head spins out of control.

Have a great night all and I will hopefully see you in the morning.

    So sorry :(( That is tough about the credit card :(( That just happened to another of my Spark buddies!! Exact same thing. Incredibly, they think someone watched her making a purchase, and within minutes used the number to make a purchase online :(( Its getting to be not safe using a credit card. I am happy to use only cash except for a big purchase. I don't buy anything online unless I can preset up automatic credit so my number never has to go online. I hope this credit card company moves fast on it.
I haven't been sleeping much more than 3 hrs a night, and last night was the worse. I got a spider scare (I was bitten once and it took six months to heal) and it made me restless for that night. I hope it goes better for us both tonight. Its so tough dealing with this lack of sleep :((
Here is to a better day for you..

    The credit card issue will get sorted out. My card was frozen TWICE in 6 weeks last winter, one time I was half way across the province at the national figure skating championships, because it had been (maybe) compromised. Thankfully I had another card with me. Otherwise I'm not sure what I would have done.

The second time (about 2 weeks after receiving my replacement card) it too was frozen. This time though they didn't even bother to telephone and leave a message. I tried to use it to buy gas and it was VERY embarrassing when it was declined. I heard later that there was so much fraud happening in my area, and they couldn't find the crooks, so they just cancelled everyone's card in my postal code.

So I really sympathize with your situation.

I hope things turn around for you very soon!

Hugs ... M

Pop Up Blockers!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

UGH! I hate Pop up Blockers! So I had my setting set to block them and only allow the ones that I want. Like Sparks Videos, Blogs.ectra. Now I can't open up any of these, nor can I leave a message on my friends page.

So back in again and reset them to original settings. Now I don't get any pop ups and I can't leave any posting.

So back in again to allow all POP UPS! and still can't view any because POP ups are being blocked from your computer. Hit CTRL and allow. NOpe.

So I am giving up for now, will work on this tomorrow.

I down loaded CC Cleaner today and now it says I have 1451 files that needs to be deleted. What files are these. If I hit clean will it remover my files and I can't open them. Or are these the temporary files and it is OK to hit the "clean" button and my programs and files will be safe. I am confused. So I won't do anything

I am now afraid to do anything on my computer because things just gets worse and not better.

One good thing is that my computer is running a bit faster and my keys aren't sticking.

On the good side of my day is that I walked 11,908 steps, over 5.56 miles. The day was sunny and warm, didn't need a jacket, just my water bottle and sun glasses.

I also did 30 minute of dancing like a fool in my living room but I had so much fun dancing.
I spent 8 hours crocheting today and 2 hours typing up a Snoopy Pattern for DEE107 and tried to send it to her but I couldn't transfer the file to her.

I tried to copy and paste my pattern to her spark mail page and it wouldn't work. Don't know how to do that .Try again and ended up deleting my pattern. UGH!

So I sent her one that I had found on the internet that a friend just sent me today. So Dee107 if your reading this I hope you liked this pattern and I am sorry it is not my original Copy.

Tomorrow I will attempt to rewrite my pattern again and down load my picture to the documents.

I am not upset about this just sad that it happened.

I am learning so much about my computer and it is helping me in my depression in some weird way.

I feel so good today despite all my problems in life and with things in general.

Oh I forgot, we saw DAD today and went of for lunch. We stopped at a place called "Blue Collar" and the dinner was cute and friendly inside, the food was amazing, so good and inexpensive and best of all healthy.

I had a Monty Cristo Sandwich on wholewheat and was grilled and not fried. with a tossed green salad and water. Calories for the meal was 460. Woohoo!

Drove around and walked around the GM car lot by DADs place and John found a 1994 white GM z71 4x4 truck and he bought it. The truck is amazing and John got it for such a great deal that he couldn't pass it up and since our DAD is a mechanic had a good long look at it and a test drive and told up it is perfect for what John needs.

Now he won't have any more problems driving up the mountain in the winter time and when the snow come.

Best of all he still can help me out in paying our bills, this will not affect us to bad.

I am really excited, as for the old truck we are selling it or trying too.

Ok time for me to hit the hay. I am very tired tonight. I had only 6 hours of sleep and have been up since 6:30 am so I know I will sleep good tonight.

Thank you all for your help in helping me with this computer and I hope that with ALL our head put together we can fix this stubborn piece of electronic.

I think after this I will be a genius in soft ware. MMM maybe I should look into computer work. NOT!!!!!! A pain in the neck and buttocks, no thank you. I need action. I need to be moving in my working.

Good night all.

    What you might want to do is after you get the pattern for Dee107, send it directly from your email to hers or if she is on one of those IM programs, transfer the file that way.

Trust me I so hate pop pops.. But what is worse is the program that prevents them and you do not even realize the website is using them.

    My pop-up blocker will go along fine for a long time, blocking those I want blocked and letting in others - then, it decides to block ones I've previously allowed - what, it has a maximum limit or something?

When I got my new computer, the guys at the shop told me to run CC cleaner and some other programs once a week (I usually get around to it every couple of weeks). I just cross my fingers andlet it delete stuff.

Report Inappropriate Comment
LASARRE 10/14/2010 2:43AM

    Allow CC cleaner to delete those files. They are usually blanks, or temp files, or broken files. Probably part of the problem with your computer. Also when you click on start, there is a blank box above that type in "prefetch"--this will bring up all these wasted files that you don't need and there could be hundreds of them. When the box opens with them, hit control A- that selects them all and then hit delete. I've watched Iyogi do this with my computers a hundred times. Now, I do it. Also in that same box type %temp% again you will get a whole lot of temp unnecessary files--control A- delete.

As far as your pop ups etc.. at the top of the page you have to go to tools/ options/content management and there will be an option there for you to put in which sites you want to allow pop ups from. I know this is all very technical, but I have spent countless hours on the phone with Iyogi learning all this. I hope it helps :)

Watching the news.

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

While I am sparking tonight I am watching the news on the miners being trapped in the mine for 69 days.
Wow, what a miracle to find them to be alive and doing as good as they are.
Can't wait to have all of them out and above ground hugging their family and friends.
This is the first time ever that they are using this technology.
What a great and emotional celebration.
I have tears of joy coming down my face.

Ok. back to my blog

I went to get my computer fix and I couldn't afford the repairs or a new computer for that matter.
So after driving around for a bit and walking we came home. I posted a message on my feed about my computer and a few have sent me suggestions.

Terrific sent me a link to down load a registry fix program that was free to install. I installed it and ran it. it found tons of problems and repair most of them. Spybot and remove.
It found 33 registry problems with google and with ex.32.syem. what ever that is. It repair 16 from google but not from this system 32 thing.
Jhadizia sent me a link for anotherregistry and fix it. It found 1451 problems and removed 500 of them. I still have 551 problems on my computer.

I was sent a link to down load PDF files so now I can save them to that program, exit sparks or whatever program I am on and then go into this program and open it up and read it.
Now all I need to learn is to copy my resume over and get it saved as a PDF file.

Then maybe I can apply online and get my resume sent to the companies that I am applying for.

A lot of work, a lot of extra steps. Is it worth all this extra hassle. YOU bet it is for now at least I can get stuff done.

I figured out what the problem is and how it happened but not how to solve it.

Back in Feb when I took my computer in to get it updated to win7, the computer guy didn't get rid of the problems that I had on the old system, he didn't back it up and he didn't add a restore point to it when he set up and TRANSFERRED the program over to win7.
So on my old hard drive I have this ex.32. system file that is locked and can't be open without the administer to open it up. Unfortunately I am the only administer for this computer unless that tech guy did something to it. Can't say for sure.

So this is why I have had so many problems on my computer. Go figure.

Any ways thought I would update you on my troubles and how I got some of it fixed with your help.

Now I wonder if I can uninstall JAVA. but how can I install in again or can I. I think I can download it for free and see if Java script will work properly and not give me the "void" error.

Well I am not going to try tonight. I have done enough on this computer today and my eyes are tired from all the reading and typing that I have done.

Plus I did a lot of crocheting today. I am redesigning a pink pig and making another Giraffe. Someone mention that it would look so cute in purple and pink. So that is what I am now working on.

I also watched the city workers paint the lines and the bicycle logo on our street.

I will post them tomorrow. I am still recharging the batteries for this old camera.

I am doing good today and hopefully I will have a good sleep tonight. It is long over due again.

    You can uninstall java, and should. Its better to have a complete, new install when you have problems with it. You have to remove it by the Windows Add or Remove software program, click under My Computer to see it, and make sure you have removed all versions of it first. Earlier downloads and updates will likely be in there, so check the list windows generates to carefully to get all its versions. Good luck with it. Its frustrating dealing with problems like that for sure.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

My brother managed to have today off.
So he and I went out for a nice long drive in the rain and looked at some truck and various car lots. Tested one pathfinder but it was crap. Couldn't find any that we like that was in his price range.

We did do a lot of walking despite it raining.

Came home and I made up a nice spaghetti and meatsauce.

Logged on to the computer and it was blank. Unhooked all the wires and plugs and reboot. got it to work some. Now I am trying to catch up with sparks, do my blog and go to bed.

My brother is not going to buy a truck but instead he is going to help me with my share of the bill, actually all of it until I find a job and can pay him back.

I don't like this but what can I do, I have to take his amazing offer of help, I don't like being in this situation any more than he does.

My brother is AWESOME!

I hope you all have had a great day and a great Thanks Giving Canadian.

I am thankful that I was not alone and that I spent the day with my brother and not alone. Even though I would have had my sparkers.

Good night.

    It is so awesome to hear about the closeness you share with your brother. I am sure that you would do for him all that he is doing for you if the situation were reversed. You are blessed to have each other.

    You do have a wonderful brother! My brother is great too! he is there if you need help. He fixes computers for a living and has probably fixed every single one of his family and extended family's computers!! The last thing you'd want to do is more of your job after you get home, but he is sweet enough to do it..
I sure hope they can fins and fix your computer problem quickly..

    What a lovely brother!
I have a son like that who's helped me out financially. At the time I didn't like it either but had to, on the other hand I was extremely proud of him, just like you are of your brother.
Having a family member like that certainly makes up for any problems that arise.
