annoying recent development after composing an email, if I go back /click / move cursor to insert a word or a punctuation (NOT highlighting anything), often (but now always) the new word I am entering "gobbles" the text already written that follows on that line, letter by letter, space by space, character by character. If I type in a 5 letter word, the next five letters or spaces disappear; a seven letter word with a comma at the end will "gobble up" the next 8 characters. Is there some option or keystroke that causes this, or can stop this from happening?
i have always used outlook express, since i purchased windows vista, outlook express is updated to windows live worst thing ever, i used to be able to just type the first letter of the email address or name to whom i was mailing, now if i am forwarding an email to several people i now have to type every address individually, in full, is this the way that windows live is?? is it a glitch?? can i go back to the old outlook express, or should i just get a yahoo account and have no problems what so ever??
Well Window Vista is giving like endless problem to worry about. Since i started using Vista 1 month ago i often encounter a weird glitch. Whenever i going into "My Computer", the screen glitches, i can see messy flashes on the whole screen. The icon is distorted and are all mess up. I cannot click on anything here untill i restart the whole PC/Notebook again. Initially i thought the problem is with my hard disk but it is not. I heard some say its Vista problem. Does updating my pc regularly fix this?
I am experiencing an interrmittent problem in Vista 64. When i am watching a film (normally via Videolan player) or gaming online I experience occassional second/two second long glitches where the sound and video of the media i am watching freezes for a split second. This causes a buzzing sound (presumably this is the audio stuttering). It isn't lag and the play back is not constantly choppy. The files (gaming and video) are played from my hard drives not my DVD drive. My OS is on a 250GB Seagate SATA II HDD and i have various other HDD as storage. accepted as it is driving me nuts. I have spent a lot of money on this new rig and am pretty tempted to go back to XP...I have the latest drivers for everything also.
Everytime I try to type emails or anything else for that matter things keep popping up, form for email, im forms etc. and many times emails get sent before I'm ready. Don't know what causes this to happen - some sort of speed keys - I don't need this or want it. I just want to type without interference of any kind. How do I deactivate this pain in the %%,%? Things were popping up as I typed this.
Running Vista Home Premium on a Dell M1730. in the last week or so I have been having an issue with typing on the keyboard... this also affects the system while gaming
If I am in notepad/email client/here typing this now... as I type, the characters appear normally as you would expect, then every 10 seconds or so stop being displayed on the screen... that lasts for a few seconds then everything I have typed in the lag period comes up on the screen. In a gaming situation, same timing and the keys will either intermittently not respond or will "sitck" for few seconds.
I have uninstalled the Norton Security package but not sure where to go with this now.
I purchased a new Dell laptop with inbuilt Vista 32 bit. When ever I type emails in web based like hotmail and yahoo, my keyboard cursor goes very slow. It is really very slow and I have to type the matter in word and then cut and past it. I restart the system but same in both hotmail and yahoo. My laptop is updated as of date for wndows and all requred drivers. I am using McAfee AntiVirus software.
I am real curious if this happens to anyone else using WM? We are all familiar with the solitaire card game FreeCell that comes with Windows. I opened a new email, have my size at 600 x 460. Typed the word "FreeCell" into the subject line. Instantly, the email changes in size. 602 x 272. Do not have to click mouse or anything, does it on its own.
In the middle of typing something the cursor will randomly click on whatever it's hovering over, be it a link, text further up in the field, or even my desktop wallpaper. I've called a friend with Vista and he has the same problem. I have no idea how to correct this since I'm a XP person
I've never done this before... so you will all have to bare with me. But I have noticed that everytime I use Internet Explorer, it skips letters as I'm typing. I have to type slow and really pay attention to get everything I am trying to type. I'm not really sure why this happened. It worked great for a while and then all of a sudden one day it would skip letters as I was typing.
I have problem with dropped letters in IE?? When I type on IE …letters are dropped. nly in IE though..Word & Notepad is fine…..this is sooo annoying!! I can't find any resolutions. I tried disabling all the add-ons and still don't work!
We have two Sony Vaio laptops in my house and this has happened with both of them. When I type the little flashing line moves to random places and the typing continues from there. Not only that, sometimes when I type passages get highlighted or deleted, or the page simply changes for no reason. Why did this happen and how can i fix it? D:
I posted this on Yahoo Answers and the response was " this is common and one of the reasons people hate vista, however its easy to fix.
go to control panel >mouse and other (or printers and other) >Mouse > Touchpad Tab >move the slider back a bit so its not so sensitive.
When the Touchpad is super sensitive weird things happen when your hands are nearby.

But I don't have a touchpad tab option that allows me to do that.
ive been having problems with the tilde key on my Asus laptop. at first it was that it didint work at all, in games, in microsoft works, or notepad. i went searching online and disabled the driver for the eHome ir receiver (even though i dont own an ir receivers). after that i was able to use the tild key only outside of games. but heres the strange part, if i press the tild key quickly as if i were typing normaly, it dose not register. in order to use it i have to hold down the tilde key for about 1-2 seconds before it would spit out a stream of "````````````". then i could delete up to the first one. this is true for the laptops keyboard, and a wired dell keyboard i connected using usb.........
Running Vista on an HP...When I get the pop up to compact the mail I click OK and it gets about 3 quarters of the way thru and I get the message Windows Mail has stopped working and Windows is searching for an answer. The answer was DEP (Data Execution Protection)was shutting it down to protect my computer..What's the problem??? Norton internet Security up to date and nothing found with complete system scan..Vista up to date as well.
My main mail client is my office XP system, I also receive mail in home. So I select the 'Leave mail on Server' in my home XP system and it work fine. But after I upgrade my home PC to Vista system (I export my mail account for XP outlook express then inport it to my Vista system.) then it have problem - when the mail that I received in home Vista system Windows Mail then i no longer can receive in office mail client. Does anyone know is it the bug of Vista Windows Mail?
I received this after my computer locked up when trying to open up windows Mail "Windows Mail could not be started, initialize junk filtering. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. (0x80070002)" After closing that error out I get "Windows Mail could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be initialized.
I've had a problem for a while now. Every time I open Windows Mail up, or the news groups, I get a message saying Windows mail isn't my default mail program, and asks if I want it to be. I click yes every time, but I will still get this message when I open Windows Mail again the next day. Everything's works OK after I click this message. No other errors or anything.
I have upgraded from Windows Mail to Live Windows Mail and have imported my emails and contacts. The contacts have worked ok but I cannot find any of my imported emails. I have looked in the storage folders and imported folders as well as all other folders but there is no sign of any of my emails.
Can't Windows Mail autofill e-mail addresses from Windows Contacts into the "To: "line? Opening Windows Contacts searching for an address and moving an address across seems awkward. It seems that you should start trying the address and it should autofil.
i also tried to change my default email to windows live, it doesn't work, comes up w/ some weird kind of mail that doesn't send messages (not sure if it's trying to use windows mail even tho it's set to windows live mail, or what). so, i'm trying to set up my windows live account (which is new, just set it up a couple of months ago), through windows mail. tried setting to pop3.live.com and smtp.live.com and when it goes to connect i keep getting this error message:
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop3.live.com', Server: 'pop3.live.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
i really want my default e-mail server to be set up to something that works. and i do not want to go back to using my yahoo account.
How stable is Windows Live Mail? Does it convert your old Windows Mail messages and keep storing messages on your computer, or only online? And what about Contacts? Is there something good to read to read about moving from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail? The material at is pretty superficial.
What, if any, inferences can be drawn from the fact that there are typically three times more posts about Windows Mail (WM) than Windows Live Mail (WLM). Could it be that:
(a) WM is more troublesome than WLM (in view of the greater complexity of WLM this seems improbable)?
(b) Many more people use WM (seems probable - I wonder what the figures are)?
(c) A higher proportion of technically savvy users are likely to be early adopters of Windows 7 who have to find an alternative to WM. Some then migrate to a non-Microsoft email client such as Thunderbird, while those that try WLM find they can master it with few problems (plausible)?
My feeling is that there seem to be an awful lot of folk hanging on to WM and that they might be put off updating to Windows 7 because neither WM (nor Outlook Express) will not be available (at least not in a securely supported version) to run on it. I am cross-posting this to both newsgroups and suggest that replies go to WM as it has the larger following.
I'm unable to send emails in my windows mail. When i select 'send/receive' a pop-message comes up telling me: The message could not be sent. The authentication setting might not be correct for your outgoing e-mail [SMTP] server. For help solving this problem, go to Help, search for "Troubleshoot Windows Mail", and read the "I'm having problems sending e-mail" section. If you need help determining the proper server settings, please contact your e-mail service provider.
