Computer Help / Re: How do you find all the draws with numbers?
« Last post by Boggin on Today at 10:09:03 AM »
From the video I couldn't see how you could do what you want.

You can compare cells using a spreadsheet but it compares one column against another, which is probably not what you want, but perhaps you could work your numbers into columns.

This is how to do it in a Google Sheet - https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-find-duplicates-in-google-sheets/

This is the download for a Google Sheet to see if it helps - https://www.google.co.uk/sheets/about/

ok, let's not talk about the lottery anymore, forget about it.
I don't want to remove duplicates, I just want to find similar numbers that repeat, I understand that even the best forum experts can't answer. They have no idea how to find it. I didn't know that 20 numbers is the biggest, most complicated thing in the world.
Of course this is possible, but how do you use cells?
Compare cells, the search operation should take one second (yes, extremely fast in EmEditor), but where is the compare cells option.
1 second and you have the result, I just don't know how to use "cell" Emeditor

Computer Help / Changing the Windows 7 Welcome Screen
« Last post by roberthansjorg on July 05, 2020, 10:04:20 PM »
OS is Windows 7 Ultimate.

I've gone through the process of trying to change the image of my logon screen to an image of my choice.
The registry, System 32,gpedit.msc. Done everything properly. I learnt how by watching Youtube instruction channels.
All the instructions were to change the welcome logon image.
Having followed all the instructions I end up with my logoff/switch off screen changing from the Microsoft default screen
to the jpg image of my choice.
The logon/welcome screen turns first black and then changes to white before changing once again to my
windows theme choices. Black /white seems to be some lingering setting from somewhere that needs switching off.
The image I want to use has been placed in the system32\info\backgrounds folder. It's called backgroundDefault.jpg and it's
under 250kb in size.
What have I missed?

Computer Help / Re: Just downloaded tweaking and now unable to open Word or Excel

This article may help in repairing your Word and Excel, but disregard the Windows repair install option as that doesn't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

Also disregard the clean install option as you would lose everything.

Does the repair program's Registry Backup/Restore Registry do anything for you ?

Computer Help / Just downloaded tweaking and now unable to open Word or Excel

I just downloaded tweaking and ran the scan and repairs and rebooted. Now I cannot open either Word or Excel. I get this message: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office 16\Apprslv Subsysems32.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again  (the disk is about 4,000 miles away). Error status 0xc0000020.  I tried going back to a restore registry point in May but that did not fix things. What can I do?  Thank you.

There has been a similar complaint about WR in Win 10 1909.

I'll report your problem to Shane as well.

The repair program auto creates a registry back up prior to running the repairs, so glad that back up got you out of it.

YEs I have had a problem where windows 10 wouldnt boot after running WR aswell as seing other posts , solution was to run recovery in command promp and find the Regbac directory and run the dos_restore file in it.

Before the UK's national lottery was increased from 1.00 a line to 2.00 a line, I used to select 10 random numbers and split them into two groups of five.

I then used the first group of 5 and one each of the other group and then used the second group with one each of the first group to give me 10 lines of six numbers.

I was fortunate on one of the draws to have 4 numbers correct which paid me about 400.00.

Those duplicated numbers produced 5 lines of 4 correct.

This is why I don't think you should bother trying to find a method of weeding out those duplicated numbers.

This means that it is not possible to find all duplicates in separate lines in a text editor and extract all these lines???
And I have always believed that everything is possible, only more time is needed.

If this is for a Lotto game then sometimes it's advantageous to have duplicated numbers on different lines as I have found.
