How do I remove auto-complete emails from Outlook Express?

Outlook is very simple. I'm asking about Outlook express. It doesn't have nk2 files that I could edit and it doesn't let me just hit the DEL key. I've tried google searching but everything comes up as either a mistaken answer using Outlook or just how to disable it completely. When I start typing an...

Well damn for $1400 you can really go all out as long as you stick to good price/performance pieces..

1) Do you want it to be fancy and/or unique? (more expensive for no performance gain)

2) Do you have any brand preferences?

Nevermind, i found a linux CD laying around.. Booted into that and used GParted to delete the partitions.

Chrome uses ext3 which windows xp can't see apparently! What was neat is there was the regular install, and then a saved state. Cute.

I would start by updating your drivers. Network and video especially. Is your network card on your motherboard?

this is the computer?

Typically they ask me if they should upgrade, and my answer is "Are you unhappy? If not, no need to upgrade" Make sure to keep an external hard drive on that machine with a reliable backup program running. It's one thing to just let it go until it dies, quite another to not be prepared when that ha...

At $600 you're right on the cusp of building a computer for cheaper than a manufacturer. A little secret that's been let out of the bag recently, Acer, Dell, HP, etc... They only pay $30 max for microsoft windows. It's just so hard to compete with that savings under $700. Try this one on for size: h...

I think the power supply is under powered. To keep it with the brand you chose, I would go with this one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001M3G42W/ref=asc_df_B001M3G42W1018580?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=googlecom09c9-20&linkCode=asn&creative=380341&creativeASIN=B001M3G42W The extra $50 you spend here is WELL...
