Another EZ Macros Q&A and a feature

First of all, how about that Super Bowl? That game was exactly what I hoped for. Close to the end, Peyton cheering for his brother, and Eli getting his ring. Couldn't ask for more.

We've had an EZ Macros question coming up that I wanted to answer. Some of you who run Vista are getting an error like "Unable to set hook". Here is the solution:

Turn off the UAC (User Account Control). (See instructions below.) Microsoft views macro programs as a potiential risk because it takes control of your keyboard and mouse. I sincerely hope none of you would use EZ Macros for evil. Most companies disable the UAC when the get a installation of Vista. It simply generates too many help desk calls and it's just not worth the time it takes to support it. Here's how you do it.

A) Click Start...Control Panel
B) Click "Change your Windows Password"
C) Click "Turn User Account Control On or Off"
D) Clear the check box called "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer."
E) Reboot your computer.After you do this, EZ Macros will work perfectly.

This is a temporary "workaround". We will be fixing this in the next version of EZ Macros.

A new feature coming soon - File Encryption. You will be able to type your own password, and the software will use that password to enrypt your files on the server using Cryptography. If you have files that contain sensitive data such as social security numbers, bank account info, etc., you will want to enable file encryption. Look for that in your next Live Update.

Have a good week!

Today is the Super Bowl

Search our Blog (at the top/left of this page) for EZ Macros and Club Backup Q & A.

Like most of you I'll be watching the Super Bowl today. I really don't care who wins. I grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan. So it's really difficult for me to cheer for the Giants. However that being said I've always liked the underdog.

The Patriots on paper should win obviously. But if you recall the Giants gave New England all they wanted a few weeks ago. So the Pats will remember that and know that they are vulnerable. The Giants know it too. So it will be a great game to watch.

I'm watching the game with about 20 7th grade boys. It should be wild! Hopefully there will not be any wardrobe malfunctions. I can't imagine what they will do if that happens.

I'd also like to see Manning do well. I'd hate to live in the shadow of Peyton Manning. As a father of sons you don't want that kind of competition and resentment betweek your kids. Hopefully they Manning boys are more mature than that. But knowing men, probably not.

I really don't care who wins. I just hope for a good game. I'd love to see the Giants give New England all they can handle. It should make for some high drama and a fun game to watch.

Enjoy it folks! After today there's not any football until Arena season. (If you've never seen Arena football, you should. It's a hoot!)
