Question about PC Desktops

I am unable to copy some documents and settings informationm to a flash drive because UsrClass and NTuser files are in use and won't allow it. I have uninstalled Nero, which seems to be associated with NTuser, to no avail. Is there a copy mode in which I can copy automatically skipping files in use? or is there some other solution?

Switch to administrator. Then copy the files from the other user's profile to your flash drive.

Dell datasafe online will not restore my files!


Never, Never use anything that any vendor gives you as your absolute only backup because most times it won't work. Even things like System Recovery don't work most times.

It's so much easier for you to back up your own data by simply copying and pasting it to a USB External Hard Drive or a USB Flash Drive. Most of everything you need will be in your My Documents Folder which will include My Music, My Pictures, Downloads and My Videos.

You can copy the whole My Documents folder or you can copy individual things within it.

You're probably going to have to live without your data this time around.

Also look into the Cloud Technology for backing up your own data. Google Cloud will give you 5GB free that you can access anywhere and anytime.

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile


This article describes how to copy user data from your Windows XP profile to a new profile.
When you copy user data into a new profile, the new profile becomes a near duplicate of the old profile, and contains the same preferences, appearance, and documents as the old profile. If your old profile is corrupted in some way, you can move the files and settings from the corrupt profile to a new profile.
Note The method that is described in this article may not transfer the Outlook Express e-mail messages and address user data that are associated with the user profile where you are transferring data from. When you delete the old profile, you may delete that data if it you do not first transfer it by using other methods. For more information about transferring Outlook Express user data, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Transfer files from one computer to another


The easiest way is to have something like an external hard drive or usb flash drive then copy the files from the old computer and then take the usb flash drive or external drive and and plug it into the new computer and copy the files to it.

You will be using the concept of copy and paste or drag and drop to get the files.

You can only copy things such as your documents, music, pictures and videos. You cannot copy programs from one computer to the other, programs have to be reinstalled so that they can update the registry and other settings in windows to work.

The majority of your documents, music, pictures and videos will be in your MY DOCUMENTS folder.

I am trying to erase all information on the desktop and have it return to factore settings.


The best way of doing in is finding the CD which came with it, which will allow you to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system and the system specific setting which came with it when you first brought it. If you are unable to do this, search the dell website for the drivers for your PC, download them and save them to a USB drive, then format the computer using freely available tools on the internet before reinstalling windows and then copy the drivers from the USB drive back onto the computer. You can then use windows update when connected to the internet to download the most up to date files. Remember to backup all your documents before formatting though.

How do I get started using a USB flash drive and how do I set up a security system?


hey, heres something that would help u:  Copying files to a flash drive on a PC:
  1. Open My Computer and see which drives are shown. Most computers, for example, have a hard disk such as a C: drive and a few removable storage devices such as a floppy drive, a CD-ROM drive, and perhaps a zip drive. 
  2. Insert the flash drive into the USB port and watch to see where the USB flash drive appears. Most will appear as removable storage, but some will instead appear as hard drives. Note the name Windows is using to refer to the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  3. Open My Documents or the location from which you want to transfer files to the flash drive. Select the files or folders you want to save to the flash drive by left-clicking on them. To select more than one, hold down the CTRL key while you click and select all of the files you wish to save. 
  4. Right-click on the file(s) or folder(s) you selected, then select Send to, then select the name you saw appearing in My Computer for the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  5. When the copying is finished, do not immediately remove the flash drive from the USB port. Instead, left-click on the Remove Hardware icon toolbar.gif located in the System Tray. A window containing a list of the USB devices will appear. Left-click on the Safely Remove Mass Storage Device line that matches your flash drive (for example, Safely Remove Mass Storage Device - Drive(G:)). 
  6. When you see the following message appear in the bottom left toolbar, it is, as it says, safe to remove the flash drive from the USB port; you may close the message or ignore it, as it will close itself automatically:
    ok_msg.gif

Am trying to gopy c drive get ntuser error can not remove nester fom c drive thank you have prestige desktop hard drive 500cb


From the sound of your question you are trying to move your whole system on to a new drive.

It is not possible to do it using a simple copy. There are many reasons for this, but the main one will be that files are open and cannot be copied.

The best thing to do is run NTbackup.exe and use it to make a backup of the disk. Alternatively you could use a product such as Drive Ssnapshot (http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/down.htm) to take an image of the disk.

PNY Write Protected


Check and see if you can copy and paste that file from it's location and place it on the desktop. Basically seeing if you can move that file within your PC. If this is a work computer, it might have precautions built-in to write protect it's documents. If you can move the file around in your computer then it's probably a problem with your flash drive. Can you copy anything to the drive?, such as a simple text file, music, etc. I'm also assuming that you checked the properties on the drive itself to make sure it wasn't locked. You could also try another flash drive to eliminate the possiblilty of your stick being defective.
Let me know how you do.

Error messages


one reason for the GWUtil97.dll error is:
  • A DLL file that was needed for more than one program on your computer was accidentally deleted when you uninstalled an unused software program, and now the program that needs that file can’t find it.
  • A new software application has been installed on your computer and it wrote over top of the DLL file that another program needs. Sometimes the version that has replaced the old DLL file isn’t compatible with the older program.
  • Sometimes software installs and uninstalls don’t work the way they should and a DLL file gets damaged or corrupted.
  • Malicious spyware or adware software has been secretly loaded on your computer and is messing about with your Windows DLL file structure. *Recommended: use this free download anti-spyware scan to see if you’re infected.
  • Occasionally, your computer has a hardware part that’s dying, like a hard drive or RAM chip and your DLL files are being mixed up or corrupted as a result.
  • Damage to your Windows Registry is affecting the way your DLL files operate.
then 2 problem with user log in-

to fix do this go to 'C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME' , where USERNAME is your user. Then right click on the folder and go to 'Sharing and Security...' Click on the security tab and make sure that SYSTEM has full permissions. If SYSTEM is not there, add it and then give permissions

or...

delete ntuser.dat in your profile, windows will recreate it or if you dont want to take the risk then...

Search for ntuser.man & rename it to ntuser.dat if you don't pick up ntuser.man, then logg in with safe mode & networking as administrator, rename the corrupt profile, then, logg in again as yourself so that a new profile is created.

Try reinstalling Quicken 2008 after uninstalling it first via 'Add/Remove Programs" in Control Panel. this should help.

Also check out THIS article on converting Quicken files to new versions and other info..It may prove to be quite useful..

As for the IBM Laptop not recognizing the flash drive, generally they come with a driver CD. Try installing that on the IBM and see. If you do not have the CD, you should be able to find the driver from the manufacturer's website, or do a google.

Should you have any further questions, please feel to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.
