Hello Fred,

Did you notice if the edit box was available to you, on this first post of a thread - it never used to be, but Secunia Official were looking into it.

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/360...

I tried Babylon before but had it downloaded / installed as a toolbar - as I need translation features on a daily basis. It had other stuff available too (cant remember what).

But as soon as it started messing about with my home page settings and default search engines, I binned it. I think it also continually offered other stuff I didn`t want / need.

I`ll check out the online version, though, as it may be better than Google, which always seem to offer a mix of translated words and original words (that it cant translate).

As a toolbar option (for Ff) I use this now:

http://www.unlimited-translate.org/

It has good options from the toolbar, but still uses Google translate dictionaries, still offering mixed results.

Re. the actual problem, your translation is similar to Anthony`s, but I think still more info is required - the whole point of the Q. of using USB stick when she has a recovery disks seems strange.

I`ve tried in my pigeon German to ask for additional info on the orig. thread, so we can better understand the circumstances surrounding the origins of her problem (much as your asked).

We`ll just have to wait, now.

TiMow

Hi all.
If Barbareska want to restore her computer back to factory setting for win7, if she didn't replace the hard disk with another one , all she have to do when powering up the computer is to press F11 and to follow up the suggestions proposed by the program. I don't know why she is thinking of a USB stick for restore while the restore option is in the D partition on the HD, and maybe the usb is infected with some sort of malware or a trojan horse, when the original restore point is intact and more safe?
Wish you all a good day.

@ Barbareska
If you restore your computer to factory state, then you have to reinstall all the programs you use and all the updates from MS and other company's ( I assume you know that ).

Ah so , young TiMow ,

Yes , I agree on all of that ; I try to compose sentences in a way that sound more like the recipient's mother tongue - I find Double Dutch works well in some cases ;))

Fewer words , less politesse when going technical seems to be better , Do the pleasantries later .

I get the gist of written German (and other languages) , spoken less so , thanks to "doing" Latin at school and having spent a lot of time in foreign lands - teaches you how to communicate - with care !:))

We certainly need some more info from B. when she's back - gives time to formulate some specific (translatable) questions .

Catch you later , cracking day here and strawberries from Maroc for tea :))))))))))

Will do my best to be back by 7-8 pm Anthony's time. Still thinking if she runs in Administrator might solve the problem.

@Ant, found a translator that works better for Fr>En. I agree, enough said. :)

Several points about Chrome:

I hate to admit it, but so far am liking!

It seems to be a very simple to use interface. None of the go here, look there as in IE.

Page tabs at top are easy to manage & bookmarks a little less so. Do like how bookmarks 'on the bar' are displayed. I like simple.

While on the subject, finally found the 'star' to left of the address bar. How simple! Was getting frustrated trying to save them.

Two, only two drop down menus? (Control the current page & Customize & control...) This gets simpler & simpler.

As mentioned on another thread, found zoom feature in the page icon menu. In IE if you zoom, it is in all tabs. Even if you close the browser and open the next day. Chrome zoom is only for the page your working on. Great!

Definitely faster than IE on dial-up. Seems to have to 'learn' new sites, real slow the first couple of times.

The worm is still a source of great entertainment.

@Anthony, heard from Gaye lately?

Dear Ant;

I have found one of your lost little sheep.

Quicksilver84 misses you very much and wants you to find him.

Hi Ant;

Been very busy elsewhere. As is evening for you now and not knowing your schedule, will watch to see if you're around. Nothing too important.

Hi Ant;

Weather here is much improved. May rain tomorrow but warm! Birds think it's spring (regular birds with feathers, not the Eng. slang).

Hello Fred .

Thanks to your prediction of spring , we just had an overnight snow storm with 30 cm of georgeous thick fluffy stuff ; better than Vancouver and I just got a medal for artistic ability in knocking down a snowman :))

Unfortunately , it's going as fast as it came , so it's back to Test Rugby this weekend .

"Allez les Bleus" and all that !!
