CutePDF Convert Excel into several pdf file instead of a single pdf ?

Encountered a problem lately using CutePDF to convert Excel with multiple worksheets into PDF.
Instead of creating a single PDF, CutePDF saved it into few PDF files.

These steps should solved the problem :

At Excel file, File - Page Setup.
Look at Print Quality. If 600 dpi is stated, ensure the rest of the worksheets are also at 600 dpi (value needs to be consistent through the worksheets).

MS Words Has Stopped Working when Outlook close

Using Windows 7 & whenever exit Outlook, there's a message prompt,

"MS Words has stopped working. Windows is checking for solution" or "The file normal already exist. Do you want to replace the existing file".

This could be due to two version of MS Office installed, or the either one version was uninstall, by left traces in the registry.

Found a solution after hours of googling. Uninstall MS Office using FixIt tool from

Delete files in Template folder located at User\userprofile\appdata\roaming\microsoft

Men that cheats their way through service offering

If you received ads in your post box or on your door step that offer 24 Hour service & repair on electrical products, even on public holiday AND from these numbers :

012-931 6836 / 013-319 3914 / 019-904 8802 ( M.C LEE )

You are strongly advised to ignore them / not to engage on their services. These people claimed they are specialist, but infact fact their specialiaty is questionable. I have an air cond which is not cold & had it serviced & even parts replaced by them, but the problem never get fix. Called them few times & but all I get are their empty promises!!!

Windows 7 Welcome

Had this strange problem lately, where after login to Window 7 Ultimate, Welcome screen appear, but stays there longer time than usual (1 - 2 minutes) , then black screen shows up for another 1 - 2 minutes before Desktop appear.

Resolved it by disconnecting any unused network drive. Windows is trying to restore the network drives, which explained the delay.

Easy Job, Not So Easy Job

Sometimes, things can look so simply, but once we got our hand into doing it ourself, then only do we realised otherwise.
Settings up a small computer network requires lots of time, especially laying network cables. Cable must be properly label, tidy, hook up to switch & test. I spent 4 hrs completing the job.

Cisco VPN Internal Error 2738 on Windows 7

Installing Cisco VPN ver on my HP Mini 2140 running on Windows 7 proof to be tough. Taking almost half of my day to resolved this.

First problem, VPN just refused to install due to HP Mini 2140 screen resolution.
This can be resolved by using InstED It program ( ) to modify the Cisco VPN installer. Install InstED, find "screen resolution". Edit the 800 x 600 resolution to 1024 x 576. Save & run the installer.

Second was the Internal Error 2738 message.
These works for me (thanks to the power of Net).

Run Command Prompt using Administrator mode.

Paste this command:

reg delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8} /f

Once the command succcesfully executed, paste this :

reg delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{F414C260-6AC0-11CF-B6D1-00AA00BBBB58} /f

Once the command sucessfully executed, paste this :

regsvr32 vbscript.dll

Setup was unable to create a new system partition

First time with Windows 7 installation. Hit an error "Setup was unable to create a new system partition ...".

Solution, unplug any USB drive connected.

Reboot into Windows 7 setup mode again. Click the DRIVE option & re-delete the hard drive partition, create a new partition & re-format it.

And that should do the job!

Can't Send Streamyx Mail Via Outlook

Hmm... have this user complaining can't send his Streamyx mail via Microsoft Outlook for the past few days. He managed to sign on to using the same password.

The problem was the Logon Information - User name.

Previously, with this setting abc@streamyx works! But it doesn't now. Gotta have a .com right after abc@streamyx ->

Incoming mail server remains at Port 110

Outgoing mail server Port 25 (hmm.. & I thought TM has blocked port 25 due to spam mitigation ? No ?)
