Enter to Win One of These Fabulous Prizes

During the live Spreecast with Microsoft Office and Windows, we will be giving away the following prizes:


Acer Aspire S


Enjoy life on the go in an instant with the Aspire S Ultrabook™ — Acer’s most mobile and responsive notebook ever. This techno-wonder comes in an ultra-aerodynamic, super-slim design, yet delivers everything you expect from a standard-size notebook.



Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010

Microsoft Office Home and Business helps you stay connected and productive — at home, at the office, and on the road.

I can’t work without Microsoft Office on my machines! Every PC I ever use has to have Microsoft Office Home and Business on it. Love it!



Microsoft LifeCam Show

World-Class HD Optics with a glass element lens provides vibrant, rich video quality that is always focused-even in dim lighting.

I haven’t had a chance to try out this fabulous camera — but oh I want to! This ultra-thin web cam has a 2.0 megapixel sensor, a focus depth of field from 21” to 60”, video effects and a noise-cancelling Microphone. Sounds incredible!



Arc Mouse

Arc Touch Mouse’s innovative design allows for quick use and storage. Curve it comfortably to get started. Then smoothly glide your finger up or down the scroll pad. Arc Touch Mouse responds precisely to the speed of your finger movement, using Haptic feedback (light vibration that signals scrolling speed) to scan through documents or web pages as quickly—or as cautiously—as needed, entirely by feel.

    rsvp’d.. but couldn’t find the place to get a reminder on the link you have… soo set the alarms!!! could soooooo use a new laptop! Mine has already been rebuilt once and is having major probs… Windows 7 is fighting with the old Vista even tho it was removed. making it very difficult when trying to update programs etc… Sometimes 10 mins for one page load! Looking forward to being educated on the Windows products and software~

    When creating files in Word, Office, Paint, etc…is there a way to actually print off the file “icon snap shots” within each file folder? I want to be able to organize my files better within a 3 inch binder and have an “at a glance” snap shot print off of everything I create. Just trying to locate files faster and keep better track of everything. For the life of me, I can not figure out how to print this off. Under the area that I keep my documents if never allows me to print when viewing the snap shots and file names (note: I have Windows 7.) Also, will there ever be a way to view the actually file in a snap shot view instead of seeing the Microsoft Word default icon for each document that I have created? Thanks for any help in this area.
