Dell, 4600 desk top

For the past 4 months, I cannot use my restore systems. I am afraid that I might have deleted SOMETHING by mistake of course... I do not know for sure that this is the problem but I can think of NOTHING else that would have resulted in this.. Before, I depended on the restore system from time to time but now.. cannot

You sure did delete it if it is not there. You will have to reformat your drive or let your software program reformat your drive and then reinstall windows again. Be sure and save all your info before you redo your system.

Make sure that the System Restore option is still enabled in Windows XP. This can be done by right click on the My Computer and selecting Properties. Click on the System Restore tab and make sure the Turn off System Restore button is NOT CHECKED.

Sorry, I stated the question wrong. I do not want game cd's to open up in word pad format because I do not understand the computer language and can't get them to install right.


I still don't understand your question or problem but here is what I get out of it.

First of all Mozilla Firefox is your Internet Browser, not your Internet Service. Your Internet Service is provided by who you pay the monthly check to each month.

Now, it sounds like you have downloaded and installed something that you did not want, so you want to take it off.

If that is true, click Start and in the Search Box type in: System Restore. Look up towards the top and the search results will appear and you can click on System Restore. System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) to roll your system back to before you started having problems. System Restore will not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

So in your case just select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed the program you don't want.

Dell dimension wont boot up to windows..


Use System Restore

To use System Restore, first restart the computer by pressing[Ctrl][Alt][Delete]. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start or hear the singlebeep, press [F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Now, select theSafe Mode item from the menu and press [Enter].

Once Windows XP boots into Safe mode, click the Startbutton, access the All Programs ' Accessories ' System Tools menu, and selectSystem Restore. Because you're running in Safe mode, the only option on theopening screen of the System Restore wizard is Restore My Computer To AnEarlier Time, and it's selected by default, so just click Next. Then, followalong with the wizard to select a restore point and begin the restoration procedure.

Let me know if it helps you.
Use system utility tool like RegInOut to remove unwantted files and fix registry and windows errors.

I have a folder on my desk top that is empty but it will not delete. Every time I delete it a new one appears.


hi you can try starting your system in safe mode then delte it and see if it returns, if it does, check your start up and see if there is something creating a folder on the desk top when you start your system, you can go to system configuration utility in , start, help and support, tools, system configuration utility, then look for startup thumbnail at top and check to see if there is anything you need to stop running...hope this helps

Dell Dimension 4600 desk top out of virtual memory


Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
 
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
 
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
 
3. Now click the VIEW tab
 
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
 
5. Click APPLY then OK
 
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
 
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
 
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
 
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
 
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
 
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
 
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
 
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
 
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original
 
Hope this gives you the information you need

I closed my business last month and my desk top dell dimension was networked with microsoft xp pro and i want to take the hard drive from that somputer and install it in my home computer which is a stand...


HI,
When you remove the harddrive from a computer and plug it into a different machine though of the same model.It would not boot, because the operating system product key is unique to the machine. If you want to use this particular hdd in your home system, make it a secondary harddrive or reload windows on the harddrive again. But doing so , you would remove everything from the harddrive.

Thanks for using Fixya

If you are running Windows XP do a system restore. But BEWARE. You will lose everything you have installed since you started operating.
