Barred From Another Forum-Video.

Here is one of my videos in which I talk about my ban from Neowin Forums.

Banned From Neowin Forums.


I have just been banned from Neowin Forums. It happened two days ago on Wednesday. In my last post I told readers that my posting rights on Neowin Forums had been suspended for ten days until 30th October 2012. You can read more of that story here-http://andreaborman2.blogspot.com/2012/10/more-trouble-with-forums_26.html

But I had since been posting again on the forum and I did not think there would be any more problems. Then I posted on a thread about IE10 on Windows 7. And the moderators deleted some of my posts.

Then about two hours later I got an email from a moderator of Neowin Forums telling me I have been permanently  banned from the forum.

More trouble with forums.

I have had more problems with forums. Although I started my own forum two months ago,I still post on other forums. But I am still having problems with other forums. Last year I was banned for life from Seven Forums and Expert Law forums. For doing nothing wrong. And in March this year I was banned from Windows 7 Forums.com and Windows 8 Forums.com,their sister site for life. But three months ago,in July,the ban on me was lifted and I am no longer banned. And I am back on both Windows 7 Forums and Windows 8 Forums.

But I am still having problems on some other forums. And it happened to me again on Saturday. I have been banned from posting on another forum. This time Neowin Forums have banned me from posting on their forum for ten days until 30th October 2012. That is my posting rights have been suspended on Neowin Forums.

My own forum.

I have had so much trouble with forums that I thought that I would try something different. I have just created my own forum with a free forum hosting site,Forumotion.

And my forum is about computers,Windows and Linux. And also about forums and web hosting. That is creating a blog or website and using social network sites like Digg and Facebook. The disadvantage is that my forum is hosted on a free forum site and not on my own custom domain like this blog is. Which means that your site is not as secure as it is when you are hosting on a custom domain.As they can delete your site or forum any time. But if your site is hosted on your own custom domain they cannot.

Why are forums so difficult?

I have been posting on Windows forums recently.But I have also had a lot of bad experiences with forums.

Last October I was banned for life from Seven Forums for doing nothing wrong. And then a few hours later I was banned for life from Expert Law Forums for posting about my ban from Seven Forums.And back April this year I was banned for life from Windows 7 Forums and Windows 8 Forums. But a few weeks ago the ban on me was lifted and I am now back on Windows 7 Forums and Windows 8 Forums.

But as you may guess I have had more problems with forums. And I find a lot of forums difficult to get on with. And a lot of my experiences with forums have been bad ones.

Avoid mandatory upgrade to Windows Live Essentials 2011 version.

Here is one of my videos in which I show you how to avoid the mandatory update to Windows Live Essentials 2011 version.

How to avoid mandatory upgrade to Windows Live Essentials 2011.



























I have been using Windows Live Essentials 2009,the Windows XP version,since I bought my first laptop. When Windows Live Essentials 2011 version came out at the end of 2010, I tried it on my Windows 7 netbook. And I knew right away I did not like it.

There have since been several updated versions of WLE 2011, and I have tried it several times, but I don't like WLE 2011.
There are over 100 reasons why I don't like WLE 2011 version,too many to list here.

But the main reasons are,Windows Live Messenger 2011 is not the
same as WL Messenger 2009 and the previous versions of WL Messenger.

And I have my own wikis on the site.My latest one about Windows software and the upcoming Windows 8.Which I have put a lot of hard work into.

Re my ban from Windows 7 and Windows 8 Forums.

Three Months ago,I was banned from both Windows 7 Forums and Windows 8 Forums. Both forums are run by the same admin,so if you are banned from Windows 7 Forums,you are also banned from Windows 8 Forums.See my other post here-http://andreaborman2.blogspot.com/2012/03/banned-from-yet-another-forum.html
But yesterday morning,Wednesday at 9am,I got an email from the admin of Windows 7 and Windows 8 Forums asking me to come back to Windows 7 Forums.

Problems with Mediafire.






















Have you ever heard of Mediafire? If you are a software developer or if you have files that you want to share with friends you should have.

Mediafire is one of the larger file sharing and storage sites. And anyone can open a free account and upload their files and store them on the site for free. You can choose to make your files public so you can share them with friends. Or on your blog or website.Or private where only you have access.

And I have been using Mediafire for quite some time now. And a lot of my blog posts are about installing Windows XP and Windows Vista software on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

And so I use Mediafire to post links to my installer files that I have made, such as Windows Mail and other software from my computer. So that anybody who does not have Windows XP for example, can download the installer file onto their computer.As you cannot upload zip or exe files to your blog or website. But you can post download links to them.

Also you may want that old version of Aim Messenger for example, that they will no longer make in two months time. So you can download the zip or exe installer file and save it on a file sharing and storage site.And you can make it public or private. So if later on you want that file,you can just log into your account and download it.

But yesterday, when I went onto Mediafire and logged into my account.When I tried to download my files onto my computer, I could not.And this has been going on for over 24 hours now.

I can get onto the site and log into my account, but when I try to download any of my files, I just keep getting redirected to the download page. And I click the download button again and the same thing happens and there is no download. I cannot download anything.The website will not let me do it.

And it is not just me that has this problem. I posted about my problem on both Yahoo Answers and on My Digital Life forums.And other people say they have the same problem as me. And my friends and other people I have spoken to who are in different locations than I am have got the same problem. They too cannot download any of their files from Mediafire.

To install the Windows XP sounds such as the XP start up sound and log on or log off sound and also the Windows XP song on Windows 7,Windows Vista or Windows 8.You need to copy all of the sound files from Windows XP found in Windows/Media folder and then place them in the Windows/Meda folder on Windows 7,Windows Vista or Windows 8.

The Windows XP and screensavers will work on Windows 7,Windows Vista and Windows 8.And the Windows Vista screensavers will also work on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The Windows XP screensavers are much better than the Windows 7 screensavers.And they have settings where you can customize the screensavers that are not in the Windows 7 screensavers. If you have a Windows XP computer you can install all of the Windows XP screensavers on Windows 7,Windows Vista and Windows 8. And also the two Windows Vista screensavers,Aurora and Windows Energy will work on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Install Windows Mail on Windows 8-video.

In this video I show you how to install Windows Mail from Windows Vista on Windows 8.

Get the Windows XP Sound Recorder on Windows 7 and Windows 8.














The Sound Recorder on Windows XP has several features that have been removed from the new Sound Recorder on Windows Vista,Windows 7 and Windows 8. For example, on the Windows XP Sound Recorder you can play sound files that you have recorded in the Sound Recorder and edit your recorded sounds.But you cannot do this on the Windows 7, Sound Recorder that is also on Windows Vista, and Windows 8.But the good news is that you can install and use the Windows XP Sound Recorder on Windows Vista,Windows 7 and Windows 8. And run it alongside the Windows 7 Sound Recorder.

Run Windows XP Paint and Wordpad on Windows 7 and Windows 8.



























The Windows 7 version of Paint and Wordpad has the ribbon toolbar. Unlike the Windows XP and Windows Vista versions that does not. Windows 8 also has the same Windows 7 version of Paint and Wordpad with the ribbon. But some people are not happy with the new version of Paint and Wordpad. So here is how to get back the Windows XP Paint and Wordpad. The one without the ribbons on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.If you have a Windows XP computer you can copy both the Wordpad and Paint exe files from Windows XP onto Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Reinstate Windows Mail on Windows 8.















Windows Mail is included in Windows Vista but it is removed from Windows 7 and Windows 8. But on Windows 7 it is easy to reinstate Windows Mail simply by deleting the inactive Windows 7 Windows Mail program file and replacing it with the Windows Vista program file.
Windows Mail can be installed on Windows 8. But the dill file needed to run Windows Mail is not included in Windows 8 like it is in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.So in order to get Windows Mail working in Windows 8 you need to copy the Msidcrl30.dill file from Windows 7 or Windows Vista onto Windows 8.Here is how to install Windows Mail on Windows 8.



On Windows 8 go to program folder on C drive or where Windows 8 is installed. You need to delete the Windows 8 Windows Mail program file.Which like the Windows 7 Windows Mail program file is inactive. But the program file is locked by Windows and so it won't let you delete it. So first you need to install Unlocker  which unlocks and deletes any program file. You can also install Take Ownership which lets you take ownership or any file. And then you can delete it, but Unlocker is easier. Delete the Windows 8 Windows Mail program file using Unlocker. On Windows Vista go to Program file and copy and paste the Windows Mail program file to your Desktop or My Documents folder. Then right click with your mouse and select "send to a zipped folder." This creates a zip installer file.


Then transfer the Windows Mail program file from Windows Vista onto Windows 8.You can do this using a USB thumb drive or by using Team Viewer,which lets you transfer files from one computer to another computer.Or if you are duel booting with Windows Vista,you can just copy the Windows Mail program file from Programs in Windows Vista into programs on Windows 8. On Windows 8 unblock the Windows Mail zip file if it is blocked and extract the files to Programs on C drive.



But before you can run Windows Mail you need to copy the dill file Msidcrl30.dill from Windows Vista or Windows 7 onto Windows 8. The Msidcrl30.dill file can be found in Windows/System32 folder on Windows 7 and on Windows Vista.
Then on Windows 8 paste the Msidcrl30.dill file into Windows/system32 folder.


It is important that you paste the Msidcrl30.dill file you have copied from Windows 7 or Windows Vista in Windows/System32 on Windows 8 first,other wise Windows Mail will not run.
Then go to Programs and open the Windows Mail program file you have just installed and send the Win Mail shortcut to your desktop. Rename this shortcut Windows Mail.
Windows Mail is now installed on Windows 8 and will work the same way it does on Windows Vista and Windows 7.


You can also set Windows Mail as the systems default program on Windows 8. To do this download the registry key Win Mail make default. And then open the file and select OK. To enable the splash screen download the registry key Win Mail enable splash screen open the file and select OK.
This sets Windows Mail as the system default email program and enables the splash screen.


Windows Mail is now working on Windows 8 and it is now listed in the default program list in Default Programs. Windows Mail can be run alongside other email programs including Windows Live Mail just like it does on Windows 7.
Links-Unlocker can be downloaded from C Net website-here.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview.















Windows 8 Consumer Preview which is a Beta version of Windows 8 was released on 29th February 2012. Before that I was using Windows 8 Developers Preview which was the first Beta version of Windows 8.

Windows 8 is the new version of Windows that may be released some time this year. A lot of people think that Windows 8 is different from other versions of Windows, but it is not really. Most of the Windows XP and Windows Vista software is working on Windows 8. And you can also run software for Windows 2000,98 and 95.

Blog update.

I have decided to put all of my work from my 4 other blogs,Hezbollah Milita,Hezbollah connect and Hezbollah-Andrea Pages into 3 blogs. I have done this because I find managing 7 blogs too much of a handful.

So I have discontinued my other 3 blogs,Hezbollah Milita,Hezbollah Connect and Hezbollah-Andrea pages,they are no more now. And instead I have moved all of my best posts from these blogs onto this site-Hezbollah And Andrea online and my other site-Hezbollah And Andrea.

I also have a new web address for my other site-Hezbollah And Andrea online,which can now be found at
http://www.hezbollahconnect.net

My other website,Hezbollah And Andrea can be found at the same web address at http://www.hezbollahandandrea.biz

My other website,Hezbollah And Andrea Sites can be found the same web address, at http://www.hezbollahandrea7.net

So now you know.

Install Windows Movie Maker 2.1 for Windows XP on Windows 7.
























Images-Windows Movie Maker 2.1 on my Windows 7.And Windows Movie Maker 2.1 web cam feature working on my Windows 7.

Windows Movie Maker 2.1 is bundled with Windows XP and has many features
that have been taken out of Movie Maker 2.6 and 6. The record from the web cam feature has been removed from both Windows Movie Maker 2.6 and 6. For this reason many people prefer to use Windows Movie Maker 2.1, that has the web cam capture feature.
