Solutions: A few steps needed to properly print Hotmail e-mails

How can I print an e-mail from Hotmail without getting all of the menu to overprint onto my paperwork?

The printer you have to use in Windows Hotmail is the Internet Explorer printer interface. It doesn't make specific distinctions for Hotmail, and trying to pinpoint what is to be printed can be difficult. I'd click and hold the left mouse button while dragging it across the area/text that you wish to print. This should highlight the text. When you've selected everything you want, right click and choose copy (or just press ctrl and c simultaneously). This text is now in your paste buffer. Now open up either a new compose window or a Notepad/Word session, whichever is appropriate for the destination of your text, and simply right click an empty area and select paste (or press ctrl and v simultaneously). This should do the trick.

I am running Windows Vista on my HP PC and it runs fine, but will not update Microsoft Office Excel 2003. When I try, it will go almost all the way through, and then I get: "Error Code 57e. Windows update encountered an unknown error." I have tried to uninstall and it installs, except when I try to update I get the same error.

This error is usually due to an insistency/permission issue in the registry. Use your Office install media to reinstall again, but this time choose "repair an existing installation." This should fix the problem.

    TAMPA — It's a blink-and-you-miss-it nuance, but in Sunday's opener against Chicago, on their very first defensive snap, the Bucs lined up in a 3-4 defense.

    LITHIA — The things that make a house a home dried in the afternoon sun Thursday in a front yard on Williams Street.

    Volunteers from FishHawk Fellowship Church helped Brian Hood (left) clean up debris from his yard in Valrico, Fla. Last week the Alafia River reached a depth of almost 23 feet, about 10 feet above its flood stage. Many homes were damaged, some became uninhabitable. Hood's home is 6 inches above Lithia Pinecrest Road, and did not sustain flood damage, though not all of his neighbors were as lucky.   [MONICA HERNDON   |   Times]
