OK, Pics are gonners...BUT

I want to try to clean up this puter so I don't risk losing more important stuff. Since our little meeting with Vern didn't pan out...I know you tried, Vern!!, I need to ask if anyone is familiar with something called a "Clean Boot". Got info off the Microsoft.com site re:invalid Page Fault", which is what I got when I lost pics (specifically, a MFC42.dll error message). Vern tried to e-mail us a clean MFC42.dll file, but didn't work. So has anyone done a Clean Boot. All this relates to a program (in my case it was the Imaging Program) that improperly attempts to use RAM or that has corrupted the virtual memory area. I hardly understand most of that, I am quoting from the pages I printed from the Microsoft.com site. As I told Vern, I am a little goosy now trying something new as that was what got me in trouble way back when....need moral backbone support here. Leigh

Hiya Leigh

It sounds like a visit to your local pc repair shop might be your best course of action. I recall that you were having the same problem with your Paint program last fall when I referred you to a site that listed step by step instructions on how to reinstall.
You quite obviously have some files that are missing or corrupted.
The 'clean boot' is a bit complicated. You can download the MFC42.dll file HERE if you still want to try that, but a repair shop can save everything on your hard drive and install the latest Windows version. Most experienced repairmen can do this within a 1 hour labor charge plus the price of the software update.
Best of luck to you in whatever you decide.

Rog

For some reason, I have more problems with Microsoft's own programs running in their operating system, than any others.

A full time computer technician told me it is a good idea to reformat you hard drive once a year, and do a CLEAN install. (not a REINSTALL over the old one) I have been following his advice and have minimal computer problems as a result.

Hi Rog - Yea and the Paint program is the one that still keeps coming up with that error message. I tried the Add/Remove, restart puter deal on it, no go. I used it on the Kodak Imaging program at the same time and now that works. Thats how I recovered the pic that I was working with when this whole fiasco started. The funny thing is the Paint program was working (don't ask me how or when it started working) when I started out on this venture, but after the freezeup, it went back to giving the error message.

This computer got used by everyone for everything up til last year. I think there is a lot of garbage in it. Guess I better admit defeat go for the pro.

Hey Pick - Thanks, guess when I find a Pro (?) I will ask about that! Later, Leigh

"Attaching Photo Gallery Photos"...in 10 easy steps.
"Attaching Photo Gallery Photos"...in 10 easy steps.
Everybody has a slightly different way of doing it...here's mine

1. First of all, you need to prepare your photos in whatever program you use, (Photo Shop, Paint Shop, etc.) The photos need to be oriented properly and usually scaled down from your digital camera. Usually about 300 x 500 pixals will work fine. If it's too big, it'll take up your allowable space (2MB total for all photos) and you won't get as many photos uploaded. Usually if you keep your photo size down to 25kb or less, you'll be fine. Put the photos somewhere where you can find them by browsing your folders.

Then, you're ready to go to the Forum.

2. Go to the "Forums" section and click on "Members Photo Albums".
3. Check to make sure you are "Logged In". If not, do so, the login is the same as with AirstreamForums.com.
4. In the top right hand corner, click on "Upload Photos". This will take you to a screen that allows you to attach your photo and add your description. From here, it's pretty much just fill-in the blanks.
5. Chose your appropriate "Catagory" from the drop-down menu. Most likely the default "Members Photo Gallery" will be fine.
6. Click on the "Browse" button and go find your first photo where ever you put it on your computer above. This attaches it to be uploaded. If you want them in a special order, this is the last photo you want to show.
7. Enter the "Title" for the photo. This is the bold name right under the photo once it's uploaded.
8. Next, the "Descriptive Words" this are where you should put your trailer make or other "searchable key words" for locating a particular photo using the "search" tool.
9. Then the the "Description". This is where you can be more verbous in your detailed description of the photogragh.
10. Last click "Upload/Submit" and you should be good to go!

This comes from Shari (InsideOut). I'm not about to give my own instructions!! You have to do all your editing (changes) of pics in a Photo program of some kind as listed in #1 above, then transfer as listed above. Hope this helps, Leigh

You do that using your photo editing software program. Most digital cameras come with one or you can purchase PaintShop, PhotoShop, etc. The actual process will vary depending on the program you are using, however there is usually a command within the editing tools that is something like "resize" or "scale" or ???

Here's a couple of links for some online reviews:

Top 5 Beginner Photo Editors for Windows

Top 4 Beginner Photo Editors for Macintosh


BTW I use Jasc PaintShop Pro and "Resize" is found under the "Image" tab. There it gives the resizing options (by pixals, percentage, inches, etc.)

Good luck, it's not tough if you have the right tools...

Shari

GUESS WHAT!!!!

I just had to tell everybody who tried to help me back when my computer went crazy and vaporized all the digital pictures we had stored in the "My Pictures" area.... WE GOT THEM BACK!!!

I don't quite understand it all yet, but Price (husband) got some kind of restoration software with a new HP printer he just purchased. Apparently, if you haven't re-formatted (not sure of terminology here) your flash card for your digital camera - the pictures are still there (even if you have erased them). So the restoration software got them back from the digital camera and has restored them to the computer. WOW. I am so happy!!!

Anyway, didn't know how many people might know about that, but just had to share. Leigh

Is this still down? When I go to Member's Photo Albums, I get mutant sized pictures and the titles don't always match the pictures. Also, I don't see the "up-load" button anywhere.

Any help will be appreciated.
