  • I was sent an email which I thought was legit . I opened an attachment (zip file) but nothing in it. I phoned the bank to double check, and of course the email was bogus. How can I tell whether my macbook air version X.9.4 has a virus or not.

    No Mac viruses are propagated through email.
    Be vigilant for suspicious activity as you normally should be, but do not download or install some "anti-virus" utility in an effort to fix a problem that does not exist. That's a well-worn path to certain misery.

    Apple discontinued iWeb. That's the case for over a year now.
    Topics in this forum will tell you that in order to install iWeb you have to find a copy at eBay, Amazon and similar places.

  • How can I pass multiple condition in where clause with the join table?

    Hi:
    I need to collect several inputs at run time, and query the record according to the input.
    How can I pass multiple conditions in where clause with the join table?
    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Regards,
    TD

    If you are using SQL-Plus or Reports you can use lexical parameters like:
    SELECT * FROM emp &condition;
    When you run the query it will ask for value of condition and you can enter what every you want. Here is a really fun query:
    SELECT &columns FROM &tables &condition;
    But if you are using Forms. Then you have to change the condition by SET_BLOCK_PROPERTY.
    Best of luck!

  • How can I tell if my macbook pro has been restored to factory settings?

    I just bought I brand new macbook pro (15,4 inch) from an official apple store... but I'm thinking that it may be used (it was a bit dirty when I opened it, but it has no scratches).
    I tried with coconut battery, but it went ok, the battery is new. However they might have changed it.
    Is there a way to know if the mac was restored to factory settings?
    ... if not, is there any other way to know if is a used laptop?
    Thanks,

    cycle count says 1... wich correspond to the initial battery discharge I just did. That's why I think they may have changed the battery.
    Serial number is C02FHFG0DF8V... how can you tell if this correspond to a refurbished unit?
    It has all the "official" envelops of a brand new mac... the thing is that I found small dust specks all over the interior of the box and in the accesories (not on the notebook itself).
    According to coconut "Age of your Mac" is 11 weeks.
    That's why I thought the only way I could knew for sure if they used it before (maybe for showcasing at the store) was finding out if it was restored to factory settings. (Also I bought it in an official apple store).

    As long as you are behind a router, you don't need to have your firewall turned on at all, in fact it probably slows your computer and/or internet connection down a bit. The only time you need it is to either protect yourself against intrusion from others on your local network or if you hook your computer directly to a cable / DSL modem.

  • How can you tell which computer that is authorized as the master?

    I have several computers that I have connected my iPhone to. How can I tell which computer I should connect to before updating the operating system? I don't want to loss data if I don't have to.

    I am not that familiar with Apple and iTunes and was getting help from someone who said that I can plug my iPhone into my computers but that I would have to authorize the iPhone on each but the limit is 5.
    This is not accurate.
    You can authorize up to 5 computers with the same iTunes account. There is no device limit for the number of iPods, iPads, and iPhones that can be synced with the same iTunes library and iTunes account on the same computer.
    An iPhone can be synced with an iTunes library on one computer only, and photos can be transferred from one computer only. When transferring iTunes content and photos from another computer, all iTunes content and photos transferred from a different computer will be erased from the iPhone first.
    This is why I asked - you have connected your iPhone to each one of these computers for what?
    I was not sure which computer I first used. Is there a simple way to check?
    No, or I would have provided that with my first reply.
    If you connect your iPhone to a "non-master" computer to install the update, you will be provided a warning.
    How many computers are you talking about? If 5 or less, this should take you no more than 10 minutes to determine which computer you transferred music and photos from.

  • [p7-1240] How can I tell which graphics cards will work with my motherboard?

    I recently went through the nightmare of trying to install a Gigabyte GTX 650 in my PC. After a few days of struggling and scouring the internet for answers, I discovered that it is incompatible with the BIOS on my motherboard, and HP does not offer BIOS updates. I returned the card and am now looking for a new one, but I am unsure of which cards will work now, since my computer met all of the system requirements for the graphics card, and It stil ldid not work. Since GPU manufacturers do not list BIOS specs under system requirements, how can I tell if a graphics card will work with my sytem?
    My computer is a p7-1240 with an upgraded 520W PSU and approximeately 11" of room to install the card.
    This question was solved.
    View Solution.

    Thexn, welcome to the forum.
    The problem is, many of the newer video cards require the computer to have a full UEFI BIOS.  HP began using one in mid-October, 2012.  Before this date the BIOS is Legacy.  This is why the video card didn't work with your computer.
    I don't know what you want to spend for a card, but MSI makes a GTX 750ti that has a hybrid VBIOS.  It has a switch to change to Legacy or UEFI.  There is a video link directly below the picture of a card.  Paul from Newegg gives a full description of the card.
    I like EVGA cards the best.  Their Tech Support has given me a lot of information about their cards.  However, you have to go back to a GT 640 card to find one of their cards that doesn't require the UEFI BIOS.  They do have some updates for their BIOS'es that solve the problem, but you have to call them for the exact cards.

  • How can i synchronize my contacts in my iPhone with the ones in my iPad?

    I do that by using iCloud to house all my contacts.  Then simply use the same Apple ID on the iPad and iPhone, and turn on iCloud on both.

  • ITunes Match: How can I tell if a matched song is from the correct album?

    Since iTunes Match uses my album art and metadata, is there a way to see the album art of the matched item from iTunes?
    I have ripped hundreds of classical music CDs through the years into iTunes, and they all have album art (not from iTunes Match).   Now that I have signed up for iTunes Match, how can I confirm that a matched item from iTunes is from the correct album? 
    I have read that the matching algorithm isn't perfect and can match to the wrong item.   I have recently upgraded the quality of all my ripped music by downloading all the matches from iTunes Match, and replacing my local CD rips (I have backups).
    So, if I ripped Beethoven's 9th by Herbert Von Karajan, is there a way to see the album art of the matched music from iTunes, so that I can confirm it didn't match the item to Beethoven's 9th by Bruno Walter?
    Does the matching algorithm use song length/duration, or is it only using wave form sampling?
    Thanks!
    Paul

    Thanks for the help Jim.
    I'm not having any troubles with artwork changing, but I wish I were, because if the artwork changed then that would allow me to detect if the correct tracks are being matched.  
    I'm worried about waveform matching with classical music because I can have 2 pianists or 2 orchestras that play the same piece so it seems that the waveforms would be very similiar.   I have many CDs of the same pieces of music but by different performers.  For example, both performers play on a piano and both play the same piece of music.  Wouldn't the waveforms be very similar?
    So that's why I'm wondering if there is some way to get the artwork of the piece being matched, so that I can see what album it is coming from.
    Do you think if I deleted my artwork and then matched, that I'd get the artwork injected into my matched music?
    Thanks again for entertaining all my questions.  Really appreciate it.

  • How can I tell when a JEditorPane has finished loading the document?

    Hi!,
    I've got a JEditorPane connected to a viewport and a couple of scrollbars, and I realy need to know when the JEditorPane has completed loading the document, so that I can decide whether to turn on or off the scrollbars.
    When I try to check the viewport.getView().getWIdth() right after calling setText() or setPage() the values come out wrong... is there an eventHandler that I can register ?
    thanks in advance
    -Miguel

    OK, I'm not an expert. But, why set the scrollbars manually? Would it not be easier to put the JEditPane in a JScrollPane with the scroll policy set to "as needed"?

  • How can I replace my Mac and iCloud contacts with the ones in my iPhone?

    I have a new iPhone (iOS 6) and have edited, added, linked and deleted some of my contacts. How can I have THAT list replace all of the other contact lists in the rest of my devices?

    If you are using iCloud on iPhone and Mac, that must be already done. If not, you have to setup iCloud on both devices with the same Apple ID.
    Before you try anything, download an app like "Contacts kit" or "My Contacts Backup" to your iPhone and make a backup of your list and send it via email to yourself.
