Ghosted attachments with Windows 98
How do I change settings to be able to open attachments.
The attachments appear to be ghosted.
Hit forward, then open or save the attachment and close the message.
It's a new security feature to prevent accidental opening of viruses, either
by yourself or scripting. you can disable it in tools | options | security,
but I think the extra effort to hit forward is safer and well worth the

Upgraded my laptop from Win2K to XP, Office 2K to 2003 - all at once.
Previous Outlook install included two profiles - one for online, one for
remote. Both profiles use the same 3 PST files.
Problem is - in one profile I have three "ghost" folders that aren't normal
They show up between my primary storage file and my other .PSTs - with no
names and no properties that I can see.
When I try to open, show properties, delete (in short, do anything) with one
of these folders, I get the message "The set of folders cannot be opened."

Suddenly, Word is putting brackets around any text that I select--and leaving
them. These do not print, but it's confusing to have these nonprinting
brackets thrown in--sometimes hard to tell them from real brackets I've
inserted. In addition, I often send documents electronically, and then people
are facing this doc with these ghost brackets (which look identical to real
brackets on the screen). How can I stop Word from doing this?

I have an MBNA CC, and I've been unsuccesful in connecting to their server.
In the process, I have tried twice to delete the account and recreate it.
Now each time I try to update my accounts, the deleted accounts come back as
"MBNA CC #1" and "MBNA CC #2". Does anyone know what's causing this and how
I can resolve it?
I'm also having problems downloading data for my MBNA CC. I am receiving

When we setup RMS we used a suppliers disk to import all their items.
Recently, I used a query to delete all items that were never sold or
recieved, so that I would have a more manageable item list, as there were
about 16000 items that we were never going to use. Now I'm running into some
instances where an ILC can't be used on a new item because the system says
it's already being used. When I try to pull up that item in the Item list
nothings there. However, if I create a PO and enter the ILC in quickscan,
it will put in an item that has no info at all, no description, or...Ghost spreadsheet?
Today I am suddenly experiencing a weird problem:
I cannot see some of the spreadsheets we have saved both on the desktop and
on the server. The files are listed, I can click on them, Excel opens but
the spreadsheet does not appear, I only see the light blue background; note
that on two fields in the toolbar, right below the Ribbon, I see the cell
number in the first and the value on the second; changing the cell number
changes also the value on the second field therefore the spreadsheet is
there, it is just not visible.
I tried to reboot both the desktop and the server but no luck.
I use the previous month's newsletter as a template each month. Whenever I open the file, there is a mystery font that is not being used called MS Shell dig. I click okay and ignore it. Is there any way to locate where the font is and remove it?

This may give insight too.

I have an Exchange 5.5 server that was running out of hard disk space. So I
ghosted the drive onto a larger drive. However, the next day I started
getting errors with my database, and am now in the throes of getting things
back in order.
Is there a known issue with ghosting Exchange databases? Should I not have
done it that way?
I would never trust ghost with something as important as Exchange 5.5. Did you try to run the defrag utilities for Exch 5.5 before you decided to ghost?

I've been trying to delete some old investments I sold some time ago so that
Money doesn't keep updating their prices. It tells me I can't do that until
I've closed their positions, but they're already gone! There is no account
in which these investments still appear in the portfolio manager, and
checking the investment transaction histories shows no small rounding errors.
Anybody else have this problem?

Vista Home Premium
I have deleted a number of pictures from my hard drive, but the file names
continue to show up in Windows Media Player Pictures Library.
How do I get rid of these?
What exactly happens when you right-click these pictures, select Delete,
choose "Delete from library only" or "Delete from library and my
computer" (try both options), and click OK?
If you rebuild the library through Tools - Advanced - Restore media
library, does that help? Note that rebuilding the library will make you
lose all play counts, and possibly ratings too.
