Some how I had the on screen keyboard set to activate every time my laptop started up.  It was becoming annoying to have to exit it every time I turned on my laptop.  I did a search and found these directions on where to turn it off in Windows 7.

  1. Click on the Windows circle, then click on Control Panel.
  2. When the Control Panel opens, click on Ease of Access Center.
  3. Click on the link to “Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard”.  You may have to scroll down on the screen to see it.
  4. Uncheck the box next to “Use On-Screen Keyboard” and press Ok.
  5. You can then close the window by clicking the X in the corner.

I had a problem with Visual Studio 2008 locking up when I would open an .aspx page for editing.  I run Process Explorer all the time, I want to know why the OS is slow, and it showed me that Microsoft Setup Bootstrapper in Office 2007 was running.  After doing several searches over several days, I found this great link to fix the problem: Visual Studio 2008 Locks or Freezes in ASPX.

I had downloaded a .wmv file and when I played the movie in Windows Media Player 11. There was no sound. I could play .wav files and hear the sound with out a problem. After some searching on the Internet and trying things out, I found out that Windows Media Player was missing a program, called a codec, to play the sound. I downloaded AC3 Filter from After opening the zip’ed file and installing the softeware, I am now able to hear sound.
