How do I get back to the beginning of the wizard set up not completed it yet but want to get back to were the blocker is and cannot so would like to go back to the beginning and start again thankyou

If you are on windows you can remove the program completely. Look under control panel and then programs. This will allow you then to reload the software and start a fresh.

Not to initiate programs

What do you mean it does not want to start programs in general? What happens happens when you click on a program?

If you click on a program and it comes back asking you which program to open it with, then your program file associations have been changed by a virus.

The problem is when click on application program it displays fatal error message of error opening driver file how can i fix this?

Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.

Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.

If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.

If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.

When i get my lap top on and click the start menu are any icon on my screen it says windows can not open screen,windows needs to no what program opened it plus alot of missing programs that were on start...

Check if you laptop has the recovery program on it. This is the only way you can get your laptop to get back into shape. Check from the start button and see if you can get to programs or if the my computer icon opens get to program files and look for any fold that says recovery. open it and double click on the icon that is executable then follow the instructions.

Programming ingition key with a chip in it

  • For 1998 and newer Fords there is no way to program a new Transponder key unless you have two already programmed keys. 1998 and older you could do this in about three minutes. This one has to be hooked up to a scanner.

  • Now if you do have two keys already programmed then follow these steps.
  1. Insert first programmed key in the ignition.
  2. Turn the ignition to start (run) for two seconds and back to off. The ignition should stay on for at least one second.
  3. Remove that key and within 10 seconds stick the second programmed key into the ignition. Turn the ignition to start (run) for two seconds and back to off. The ignition should stay on for at least one second.
  4. Remove the key.
  5. Now insert the key needing to be programmed into the ignition (within 20 seconds) and turn the ignition to start (run) for two seconds and then back off.
  6. The security light will light up for 3 seconds indicating the key is now programmed.
  7. Now wait a couple minutes before starting your car and your done.

Does Alohabob PC backup give you the option to reinstall start menu programs from the backup, just as they were in your start menu before you backed them up, Rather than reinstalling from CD/DVD's? I...

If it truly is backup software then yes and no. Yes it can back up the programs but a lot of the time there are registering of DLL files and registry settings that don't get backed up and there for the programs wont work. So backing up programs is never a good idea. You can however download some free software such as EASEUS. This program can do drive to drive copy this would allow your programs to be copied over and work on the new hard drive. You could also get Norton Ghost and create and image disc and use that as well to essentially move the programs and data to the new computer.
Comment if you need further assistance.

My defrag program says it is unable to gain access to selected drive. It says another process may have the drive locked???

you need to close all open programs and reboot before you defrag
if you want a clean reboot go to start remove all programs from the startup file so nothing is in the background, if McAfee is in your start up file, it will prevent you from a complete defrag
start/all programs/startup click and drag each file in the startup back to all programs and then do a new reboot

You would right click on Start go to Explore, look under under id in "Start Menu\Programs", you would cut/paste or copy paste the programs to AllUsers\Start Menu\Programs.
