I am in a company that does not have license for all the computers. Recently we received a letter that lawyers will verify licenses. Can I buy a license from any dealer and have it installed in the Pcs ...


Hi,
That's a great idea and thank you for supporting legal copy of Windows software. My answer to your question is Yes! Definitely, you can buy your own license and install it in your computer. However, I assume that all authorized retailer of Windows are only selling Windows Vista version and up. But if you encounter a store that still sells a legal copy of Windows XP, you can grab that copy. But before buying a software, please check the specification of your computer and make sure that it is compatible with Windows 7, in that way once you have the Bootable CD you will not encounter any problem.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!!

I was copying pictures to cd drive...but instead window mssg appeared windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file.what do you want windows to do?


Usually when this happens it is not a compatible burn extension on one or more of your photos it could be a MPEG a movie file from your camera. I personally use XPBurner it is free and never does this sort of thing for my CD burning stuff Windows Media always gives me issues like this. Basically it is a file that may be bad and will not take on the burn. Try it and see if that solves the issue. Click Here it is free software. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I don't know how to back up my files onto a cd. Can anybody help.


Hi,
With Windows XP and a CD-recordable (CD–R) or CD–rewriteable (CD-RW) drive, you can copy data to a CD as easily as you used to copy to a floppy disk.
To copy files and folders to a CD
1.
Insert a blank, writable CD into the CD recorder.
2.
Open My Computer.
3.
Click the files or folders you want to copy to the CD. To select more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files you want. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy this file,Copy this folder, or Copy the selected items.
If the files are located in My Pictures, under Picture Tasks, click Copy to CD or Copy all items to CD, and then skip to step 5.
4.
In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click Copy.
5.
In My Computer, double–click the CD recording drive. Windows displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are copied to the CD. Verify that the files and folders that you intend to copy to the CD appear under Files Ready to be Written to the CD.
6.
Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows displays the CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
Notes:
• Do not copy more files to the CD than it will hold. Standard CDs hold up to 650 megabytes (MB). High–capacity CDs hold up to 850 MB.
• Be sure that you have enough disk space on your hard disk to store the temporary files that are created during the CD writing process. For a standard CD, Windows reserves up to 700 MB of the available free space. For a high–capacity CD, Windows reserves up to 1 gigabyte (GB) of the available free space.
• After you copy files or folders to the CD, it is useful to view the CD to confirm that the files are copied. For more information, click Related Topics.

It will be better if you print these instructions since you will need to type many commands later. I'm typing a detailed procedure to recover your windows.


It's possible that somehow your Windows registry is corrupted. But there is a backup. Only thing is you need to manually restore it.

Boot using your Windows XP cd in the drive and press enter when it asks to boot from CD (if it does not ask, then you will need to go to the CMOS setup by pressing DEL or F2 key and change the boot sequence)

Now, when booting from XP CD, it asks if you want to do a recovery, press R and you will get this screen:


Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console 

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality. 
Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer. 

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log onto 
(To cancel, press ENTER)? 



Type 1 and press enter.

Now type the commands I am putting below, one by one per line and press enter after every line.

md c:\tmp

cd system32\config

copy system c:\tmp\system.bak 

copy software c:\tmp\software.bak

copy sam c:\tmp\sam.bak

copy security c:\tmp\security.bak

copy default c:\tmp\default.bak

del system software sam security default

Now, type these commands: (Take care to type the dot as it is)

copy c:\windows\repair\system .

copy c:\windows\repair\software .

copy c:\windows\repair\sam .

copy c:\windows\repair\security .

copy c:\windows\repair\default .


Now type exit and press enter and the system will reboot.

Remove the CD and boot normally in Windows (even if you get the grub menu)

If it boots in to windows, then do the following:


Start Windows Explorer. 

On the Tools menu, click Folder options. 

Click the View tab. 

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box. 

Click Yes when the dialog box is displayed that confirms that you want to display these files. 

Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to get a list of the folders. It's important to click the correct drive. 

Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder. 

This folder contains one or more _restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".

Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RP x under this folder. These are restore points. 

Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder; the following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: 

C:System Volume Information_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}RP1Snapshot 

From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\tmp folder with the mouse: 
_registry_user_.default
_registry_machine_security 
_registry_machine_software 
_registry_machine_system 
_registry_machine_sam


Now, once again put your XP CD in to your CD Drive and reboot using the CD. Again press R for the recovery console.

At the console, type these commands one by one per line and press enter after every command:

cd system32\config

del sam security software default system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_software system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_system system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_sam sam

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_security security 

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_user_.default default 


Now type exit and remove the CD. Boot normally in Windows and you must be back to normal.

How to recover the windows server2003 (missing file c:\ windows\system32\config\system


Two options:

Either reinstall Windows

OR

Follow the procedure below

Now type exit and press enter and the system will reboot.

Remove the CD and boot normally in Windows .

If the PC boots in to windows, then do the following:

Start Windows Explorer. 

On the Tools menu, click Folder options. 

Click the View tab. 

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box.

From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\tmp folder with the mouse: 
_registry_user_.default
_registry_machine_security 
_registry_machine_software 
_registry_machine_system 
_registry_machine_sam


Now, once again put your Windows 2003 CD in to your CD Drive and reboot using the CD. Again press R for the recovery console.

At the console, type these commands one by one per line and press enter after every command:

cd system32\config

del sam security software default system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_software system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_system system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_sam sam

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_security security 

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_user_.default default 


Now type exit and remove the CD. Boot normally in Windows and you must be back to normal.

If in case, Windows doesn't boot even following this procedure, then you need to reinstall windows. BUT you can still try a repair install instead of a normal install since that will let your programs and settings remain as they are, intact.

Post back and I will reply with that procedure.
