Quickbooks always quits when I try to view previous reconciliation reports in Quickbooks.
Quickbooks calls Adobe Acrobat reader when trying to create this report. Acrobat by default tries to open the report in a web browser, but Acrobat can not open such report in the browser. The fix is to not allow PDF's to open in a web browser.
Here is how.
Go to Start > All Programs > Adobe Reader 9.
Go to Edit > Preferences and select Internet.
Deselect Display PDF in browser and click OK.
My computer keeps disconnecting mapped network drives.
This behavior is by designed.
This behavior occurs because Windows NT Server 4.0, Windows 2000 Server, and Windows Server 2003 can drop idle connections after a specified time-out period (by default, 15 minutes) to prevent wasting server resources on unused sessions. The connection can be re-established very quickly, if required.
To resolve this issue, you can run the following command on your computer:
net config server /autodisconnect:-1
This command will turn off the autodisconnect feature.

Step By Step How-to:
- Open the Windows Control Panel.
- Open the Network Connections item in Control Panel. A list of existing dial-up and LAN connections will appear.
- Choose the 'Create a new connection' item from the left-hand side of the window. The Windows XP New Connection Wizard will appear on the screen.
- First click Next to begin the wizard, then choose the 'Connect to the network at my workplace' item from the list and click Next.
- On the Network Connection page of the wizard, choose the 'Virtual Private Network connection' option and click Next.
- Enter a name for the new VPN connection in the 'Company Name' field and click Next. The name chosen need not match the name of an actual business.
- Choose an option on the 'Public Network' screen and click Next. The default option, 'Automatically dial this initial connection' can be used if the VPN connection will always be initiated when the computer is not already connected to the Internet. Otherwise, choose the 'Do not dial the initial connection' option. This option requires that the public Internet connection be established first, before this new VPN connection will be initiated.
- Enter the name or IP address of the VPN remote access server to connect to, and click Next. Company network administrators will provide this information.
- Choose an option on the "Connection Availability" screen and click Next. The default option, 'My Use Only,' ensures that Windows will make this new connection available only to the currently logged on user. Otherwise, choose the 'Anyone's use' option.

- It is highly recommend that you do not click "Save this user name and password for the following users" for security responses.

Disconnecting to your VPN connection.
After you're done working with the VPN connection, you will want to disconnect the VPN connection because the network you're connecting to may filter sites or other security restrictions. Also disconnecting prevents others from accessing network resources from your computer.
- Right click on the VPN connection on your desktop and click on disconnect.
Google's mission statement can be found, aptly enough, at www.google.com/about/company. It states quite simply, “Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Another interesting fact is that Google was not founded until 1998. I graduated high school in 1997. I did not begin attending college until 2009, at 30 years of age. The internet technology that most helped me as a student is Google.
It is difficult to convey the profound impact Google had on the internet and a student's ability to use it effectively. Before Google, performing a search on the internet was more difficult than trying to use the hand-typed card catalogs in a library. In a library it was reasonably certain the books were relevant and written by reliable sources. With the dawn of the internet and its easy accessibility to students, it was quickly considered an unreliable source. Not just specific sites, but the internet as a whole was suspect. Finding relevant, useful information required hours upon hours of wading through block text on sites and following embedded links to sources just to find the right key words to use to narrow your search down to the topic you were researching.
By organizing information Google has made it universally more useful. Google Books and Scholar give every student with the internet access to databases of information that, prior to this invention, required that students belong to a university that spends thousands, even millions, of dollars every year for access. What is more, Google is actually easier to use than these formal databases.
When I begin researching a topic, I simply type it into the Google Search bar and read about it on sites like Wikipedia. This allows me to learn enough to do a more refined search to find news articles that enable me to conduct further searches. Finally Google Books and Scholar give a much more detailed, scientific base to my knowledge as well as sources to quote.
Before Google the internet was like a warehouse full of loose pages torn from books. There was a ton of information but searching through it required starting in one corner and scanning every page for pertinent information. Google became the library, organizing the information, searching out and creating links to relevant topics, stripping away the dross to leave bright nuggets of solid gold fact behind. Yet, Google is more than any library. It is every library, and it is accessible from the home, the office, even the phone in my pocket. Students are no longer limited to the information contained within the walls of a library, the world is now, quite literally, at our fingertips.
How do I remove the BIOS password from a Acer Aspireone Netbook?
- Turn off and unplug the laptop from power
- Remove the battery
- Open the smallest door on the bottom of the computer with a #1 Phillips screw driver
- Look for two small metal contacts labeled RTC(RST). Using a flat head screw driver, touch both contacts at the same time for 30 seconds.
- Re-install the battery
- Plug in your computer
At this point you can turn on your computer and the BIOS password should be gone. If not, redo all the steps again.
