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.

How to restore deleted bookmark folder


If you just deleted it, you can go to your menu bar under "Edit" and "Undo Delete". If you deleted it sometime in the past, I'm afraid it's lost.

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.

I have a virus on my computer that none of my scans can seem to find. I have even done a system recovery to month ago and it is still here. I am in safe mode on my computer right now trying to find help....


The approach for a virus infection depends on what type of infection we are talking about. We need to know first the type of infection or what file is infecting the computer. Check the system configuration utility on your windows by typing msconfig on the run box. Check out the content of the startup and services tabs. Reseach on the entries on what are potentially infections running on your computer. Once you have found out the infection, try to search for entries in the registry editor. Type regedit on the run command. On the Registry editor, right click on computer and the choose search. Search for all entries of the found infection and delete them.
Note: Make sure that you create a restore point prior to deleting entries in the registry editor. One mistake here may make your computer unable to boot. But before creating a restore point, delete all current restore points by going to system properties. (right click on My Computer and choose properties) then on the system restore tab, un-check the box that says enable system restore then click on apply. Then put a check again then click apply. This should delete all previous restore points.

What I do in a case like this is do a system restore back to the time it worked. There is a chance that something in the registry got messed up and a restore should get it working again.

I went to run and then cmd and then del:\system\windows32 or somthing and now a bunch of stuf is missing how can i fix that. thanks!


OK, that was a BIG no-no!

The del command stands for delete. I am not sure which folder you deleted, but the system and system32 folders control nearly every aspect of Windows. i am not sure who told you to do such a thing, but they really messed you up.

The only thing that I can suggest is to go to the Recycle Bin and see if the folder is there. (I don't expect it to be.) If it is click on the folder and click Restore.

You can try to go to Start>Help and Support and then try to use the System Restore. Pick a date before you made this mistake. Again, I do not believe this will help either, but it's worth a shot.

You can also try to run your computer's Restore program if it has one. Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and see if there is a System Restore program listed.

Ther may also be a restore option when your computer begins booting. Watch the instructions as it boots and see if there is something like For System Restore Press F10 or something similiar. You only have a couple seconds to select it. If you miss it, just reboot again.

Last resort you will need to reinstall your Windows operating system. Hopefully you have your disk. You can also try the Repair choice when it begins to load.

Future advice: Don't mess with the Run>cmd command any more.

If you have other questions, use the Comment button. Hope something here helps.

I want to delete some programs on my laptop. How do I know if Microsoft works with any of the programs I want to delete.


Often times, the best solution is to back up all your important documents and use the system restoration disks to restore your laptop back to its factory settings.

If that's not an option, be VERY careful deleting random files. I recommend doing the following:
- Go into the control panel and uninstall programs that you don't use.
- Download and install CCleaner (http://ccleaner.com). It's a safe way to remove temp files, your internet cache, etc.
- Download and install Ad-Aware Free (http://www.lavasoft.com) Run it, and make sure your system is clean of spyware / adware.

Good luck!
