I have a similar problem (vanishing desktop)
I use Windows XP Professional SP3 on a Dell PC.
A) Since Friday 15 January when I launch a program via any icon on my
desktop, all icons disappear from the desktop. Also I can no longer
right-click on the desktop to get Arrange Icons by/Show desktop icons.
When I press Show Desktop on the Taskbar my icons reappear.
When I go to the Guest account I do not experience the above problems.
Everything works normally there. But when I return to my own desktop
there is no longer any way that I can get my icons back. Only the

...computing formula according to criteria #4
Thanks so much for your help.
Unfortunately it doesn'r work. Your suggested formula for average yied
0 - so I'm sticking to the SUMPRODUCT one, and the suggested formula fo
STDEV gives the wrong values (I think it has to do with adjacent cells
which I don't understand....).
There must be a way to do it :

...How can I reuse Office 2007 software on a new computer?
I have genuine Office 2007 Pro disc with product key which is installed on my
computer. I have a new laptop which will replace my old computer. I want to
install the Office suite but get as far as the product key which is
recognised as already used and won't let me complete the installation. I am
not trying to have multiple copies; I want to remove the software from the
old computer as it is being run down so I still only want to use 1 licence.
How can I do this?
Use the phone activation method and then explain to the person you are talking to.
P...desktop freezes while debugging thread
I have a problem debugging my application with VC 6.
When I set a breakpoint in a user thread, sometimes the whole system gets
very slow so I have to wait several minutes for each mouse click.
Can anyone help?
There are some bugs in every version of VS; VS6 tends to hang; VS.NET merely crashes with
some kind of internal error.
However, there are two other considerations that may come into play.
If the thread has a high priority, and it is compute-bound, it will consume massive
amounts of computer time, which will make response slow. And if the threads are blocked

I was wondering if anyone knows about a way to create a simple reminder or
alert that pops up at a certain time without having to create an event or
appointment (which just clogs up the calendar).
Or else, if there really is no such independent alert, is there any way to
warn you that the end of a meeting is approaching?
Thanks for your help!
No, but how about an Alarm Clock as a Windows Sidebar Gadget?

I log into my Win2003 server from a Vista desktop using RDC.
When I log in, I see all the same Desktop icons that I would have if I
logged into the server at its keyboard. However, they are not
organized on the screen properly.
So... it's obviously using my profile (it has all the icons) but it's
obviously not using the information regarding preferred
position/layout. Is there some way I can copy the layout I use when
logging in locally to be used when I log in remotely?

Is there a way to transfer all of Outlooks folders, accounts, notes, emails,
basically everything to a new computer easily. Both computers are connected
on a network.
The biggest part of this is moving the .PST file to the new computer and

you want it (don't overwrite any other .PST files with it), and open it in
Outlook using File | Open.

Locking cells is a two step process.
Go to FORMAT>CELLS and then go to the Protection tab and for each rang
of cells you want protected or locked make sure the "Locked" option i
checked. Conversely, for every group of cells you want to be able t
change make sure the "Locked" option is unchecked.
Now, none of this locks or unlocks anything until you go t

I'm still trying to fully grasp locking / multi-threading issues. I
know locks are required whenever reader and writers interact with the
same data on different threads.
However, if you have two seperate threads reading a piece of data, but
the data is not being written to by anything while those threads are
processing, is a lock required if the threads have a chance of
executing the read at the same time, or is it safe to have multiple
read-only attempts to a piece of data?
If you KNOW that nothing will ever write to them while your reader threads
are active th...
