Navigation to The Webpage Was Canceled Print
Wednesday, 27 January 2010 15:38

I was receiving the message "Navigation to the webpage was canceled - What you can try: Retype the address" the other day on a customers machine when trying to view the help file. I was using F1 to display the CHM help file from within the application. Launching the help file from Windows Explorer exhibited the same results. It was an older system running Windows XP with Service Pack 3. It appears the issues is related to Microsoft KB 892675. The fix for me was the following registry entry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



Windows 7 Hidden All Tasks Folder Print
Friday, 08 January 2010 06:40

If you create a folder with the special GUID string extention you can enable the "All Tasks" folder in Windows 7.  Make a new folder named:

All Tasks.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

You can rename "All Tasks" to anything you want. This gives you access to many Windows 7 settings from one place. In addition, since all the settings are in one folder, you can use the search box (top right) to search for keywords. Below is the screen shot of every setting available. I also included a batch file to create the folder quickly on your desktop.



Remove Uninstalled Applications from My World Print

BlackBerry App World keeps a list of the applications you have installed in its My World section.  Removing a previously installed app from your BlackBerry will not remove it from this list.  They show up as 'uninstalled' in the list but they still show up.  I'm using a Bold 9700 (5.0 OS) and what worked for me was to press alt r s t on the My World screen.

BlackBerry Drops Calls After Static Noise Print
Thursday, 16 July 2009 07:10

My older BlackBerry 8310 started dropping calls a while back. It was about a year and a half old when it started. A few minutes into the call, the phone would begin to make a load crackling static noise which both parties could hear. The duration of the noise would lengthen each time the noise returned. Eventually the call would drop and the entire phone would shut off. I would pull and reseat the battery which appeared to return the phone to normal operation. These symptoms progressively worsened in a matter of just a couple days to the point you couldn't even make a two minute phone call.

I purchased a new battery for the phone and everything is working perfectly again. The old battery is slightly swollen in the center which I believe is a symptom of the whatever the underlying problem was. If you are having the same trouble with your phone and are suspect of your battery, try placing it on a flat smooth surface and spin it like a top.  If it has a slight bulge in the center like mine did, it should spin easily.

Living on the coast lends one to keep a watchful eye on hurricanes. My favorite hurricane tracking software was Eye of the Storm, but they discontinued the software last year. I still haven't found a software replacement but the StormPulse website seems to be a very nice alternative.
