If you want free fax software go to START/CONTROL PANEL/if using classic view/category view then click on ADD/REMOVE then on left click add/remove windows components and then tick fax service and you have fax software F.O.C, I am not sure whether it allow document to be scanned into it directly, otherwise you have two options, take the scan document into Word, or Wordperfect then select send to and you should see fax, if not you will need to buy Symantec winfax 10 which is full fax software and allows directly input of scan docs,and can be purchased and downloaded online http://www.symantec.com

Remember fax software does not work with ADSL or Cable connection

Morning/afternoon/evening Tony,

(not sure on time difference in Oz). Maybe you can help with this one, I recently had my laptop overhauled and it now runs XP, I have everything else that I need installed except for one thing. I really need to be able to fax. Someone told me that you can get fax software to run on your PC that you can use with your scanner. I don`t suppose you know of any free fax software and where you can download it from????

Cheers

Tim

Hi

Just so that people don't think I am missing all the lovely weather in the cote de azur, I am in Sydney Australia where we have a home and we also have a home in Menton, as its winter here and is a cool 19c today.

Please feel free to ask questions more than happy to help if its possible, don't feel embarassed because you might think the question is silly

Hi

As to your question it depends on either laptop for desktop, if I look at laptops then Toshiba is the best because of the quality of the parts used and laptop are normally kept for longer than desktops, in desktop Dell as they are well made sold at a good price, and can be discarded in 3 years and they even run a recycle policy in certain markets. Unless you are going build your own computer only buy Dell,Compaq,HP,IBM, becuase of warranty, quality of parts used and customer service and today they are so close the non name brands there is only one chose.

Hope that has answered your question
