Turning off: "group by" feature & Favorites Folder
I recently made the transition from Outlook Express to Outlook. Words
cannot express how much I despise the "group by" feature. I'm referring to
the behavior of email folders in which emails are folded into a tree-like
hierarchy based upon the column used for sorting. Using View|Arrange
By|Current View|Customize, I'm able to turn off this feature on a
folder-by-folder basis. Because I have literally dozens of folders, with
many more to come, I'd prefer not to have to manually configure each folder.

If you purchased your copy of Publisher separately from your computer, no.
If it came preinstalled on the old computer, yes.

I have a Vista machine that does not display any favourites in the IE
favourites menu. However, they are displayed in the favourites folder when
using Windows Explorer. This was happening in IE7 and I had hoped that
installing IE8 it would correct the problem. No such luck.
Any help would be most appreciated

Not possible. Use the Folder List Navigation or create your own folder list
in Shortcuts Navigation instead.

Hi Everybody, so I'll go straight to the point lol, I have sound problems
with my laptop, the sound card is a realtek high definition audio and I run
vista 32 bit.
I've never had this kind of problem with sound before everything worked fine
(for more than a year), the drivers are installed and windows says everything
is good (though I don't have any sound) but all the sound realted
applications didn't detect an audio device.
I tried to re-install drivers, update them.... nothing happened.
So if someone knows a solution, please help, thank you.

Assume 64-bit Vista and assume that you do not want to run/

I can use VS2008 to open any .exe file and it will display a lot of

will that mess up the calendars as far as their being updated properly?
No, favorites are only a pointer to the real folder. However, if she is
using cached exchange and is caching public folder favorites, there may be a
slight delay for the server to update.
