Printing in red from Adobe Acrobat PDF's

We seem to be seeing a bug in Adobe Acrobat 8.1.2 where printing a PDF from within Acrobat Reader prints out with red backgrounds on images with certain documents, it may be in conjuction with HP printers. But we've only seen 3 cases in various offices so it's hard to be certain of that at the moment.

There doesn't seem to be a fix that we've found at the moment, so we recommend as a temporary solution until it is fixed by Adobe is to either downgrade to an earlier version or to use an alternative PDF viewer.

Can't cut and paste or "Cannot empty the clipboard" in Excel

Seems rdpclip.exe misbehaves occasionally, preventing use of the "copy" function (via Ctrl+C or menu) in Windows or Office 2003

The temporary solution seems to be to kill the rdpclip.exe process. To do this go to the Start button and click Run. Then type

taskkill /F /IM rdpclip.exe

There is a hotfix for Windows 2003 server to prevent this, but in this instance there was no connection to a Win 2003 server, it was a Windows XP computer that was acting as the server being connected to.

How to set up your first office with little money and no technical expertise

I get a few people ask me (usually in social situations where I'm trying to think about anything other than work!), "What is the cheapest office set-up I can do?" for their new small business. runPCrun are many things, and while we believe we are the best solution considering time,cost and quality, we happily admit we're not necessarily the cheapest solution and this can be important when starting a cash-starved first business.
