The main purpose of this blog is to have solutions to various computer problems I come across written down so that I know what to do if the same problem happens again. Deciding which software to use for certain tasks can also be thought as a problem and I come across this problem pretty often. After a long period of trial and error, I find the best software for the task at hand and later, after a clean install of Windows, I forget which program I like the best and have to start over from scratch. To avoid this in the future, I have decided to write about the programs I use for whatever purposes. WinCDEmu is one of those programs, which is used to mount images files so that the need to write images back to a disk is eliminated.

Luckily, there is an easy way to bypass this annoying "protection".

I recently formatted my hard drive to do a clean install of Windows (and possibly Ubuntu at some point) and one of the things that I had to take care of was to transfer my e-mail accounts and my saved e-mails back to Windows Live Mail after installation. Luckily, Windows Live Mail has export and import functions to easily transfer account settings and mails for this purpose. Here's a step by step explanation for importing and exporting e-mails in Windows Live Mail:

Every computer user comes across technical difficulties; some of which are taken care of with just a few clicks of a button while others may take a lot of time and effort to handle. This blog is my attempt to create a database of solutions to such problems, as well as putting together a list of other useful information about everyday computer use. I will also write about smartphones and tablets, whenever I have anything to write about them.
