I don't know what this has to do with Excel, but here's the solution:
Boot into Safe Mode (tap F8 repeatedly when you switch it on). Log on as The 
Administrator. No password required unless you know otherwise! Then in 
Control Panel Users re-set your user password.

problem with sending some emails to China
Hi, One of our users complains for problems with sending emails to some client in China. Normally I would blame this china server (or at least their ISP) but the funny thing is that our user can successfully send some messages. It basically happens when he sends it with request for delivery receipt. Furthermore, our user says that sometimes it will work even without this request (I mean - message will be delivered), but he sill will get an info form our server that massage was not delivered (which actually is not true). So here are some few details: Configuration: Windows sbs2003, Exc...

username and passwords on forms
IE8, Vista Home Basic SP2 I've selected this option but sometimes it is cleared. It used to be there all the time but lately it wants to be unchecked. I just need to re-enable it.

If anyone knows what I've missed I'm attentive and appreciative. Thank you. -- DrDOS You might see... Forcing Internet Explorer To Forget To Not Remember [sic]

Problem using problem reporting
I noticed that windows 7 error reporting no longer works on my machine. It goes through the motions then reports it cannot connect to the error reporting service at this time, try again later.

Enter/Match Invoices Problem
I have a PO that has been fully received with the exception of a non- inventory line item. The shipment receipts were processed using Receivings Trx Entry. One of the line items has been matched using Enter/Match Invoices. It's the other two lines that are a problem. They have been rully received, but we can't match the invoice against them because it seems the user went into Edit Purchase Orders to cancel the non-inventory line item and close the PO.

Problem with Controls added from Controls Toolbox
I have a spreedsheet where there are several controls added, command buttons and listboxes.

Or they click on a command button and the text displayed on the button gets smaller, until it disappears. Closing the workbook and reopening does refresh these controls fonts to original settings.
