Windows closes


The message you have mentioned above refers to BSOD "Blue screen of Death" which is usually caused by hardware failure like bad harddisk or Ram.

since you have mentioned that "Disk copied ok on other computer" the disk used is ok and issue is with either faulty hard drive or ram.



Also try formatting the Hard drive and install windows freshly and check if you can then copy data without error.



If Yes issue was with windows Operating system



If No, you would need to isolate/ replace ram modules/ Hard disk etc to fix the issue.



Good Luck

How to organize data on your computer


Organizing data is the best thing that a person can do, who likes to be systematic,professional and clutter free with regards to data.

There is no real meaning in keeping your computer disorganized which would result in malfunctioning and cost you money that you can save if you just organize your data effectively.

The best way to organize the data on your hard disk is as follows:-

Perfect Partitions·

  • First things first, when you install an operating system, for e.g. Windows Xp you get an option for partitioning your drive, make sure you make full use of this option to create as many drives as you feel are appropriate depending on your hard disk capacity.
  • If you want to have 1 partition which is small and the other 3 to be bigger, then you can just reduce the of the first partition which you would use mainly for operating system and installing applications.
  • So for e.g. a 500 GB hard disk can partitioned as 50 GB for operating system or the root drive usually c: drive ,and then the other three drives you can use for bulk storage i.e. 150 each ,which would result in 50GB+150GBx3 = 500GB Hard disk.
After installing the operating system, install only those programs which you use, and are essential for your use.·

  • There is no meaning in installing programs that you don't use often, or don't actually use, for e.g. some people would like to install CorelDraw application , when they are not working on it.· This does nothing but takes up unnecessary space on your hard disk drive which causes the hard disk to slow down or possibly get infected, if the software that has been installed is a pirated one.

Install Anti virus software as soon as you install an operating system

  • This is a prerequisite to make sure that you are safe from virus right from the time that you have your operating system installed. · Most of the time users want to install all the other application besides the anti virus software, this software could be infected by viruses, in case such software are pirated or you install them from a USB drive or a pen drive which has been infected.

Keep updating your anti virus while you use your PC·

  • As viruses are created daily, there is no way out but to keep updating your anti virus software from time to time, as and when they have an update.·
  • Usually the anti virus software is set on auto update mode, so when the time is due, the anti virus would download the latest update automatically, so if you disable auto update feature, it could potentially harm your computer.
Keep your desktop clean to have a nice relaxing look·

Now this depends on personal preferences but it has been observed that those people who fill their desktop with many shortcuts copy files on their desktop instead of a different folder of a hard disk or a different a partition realize that they have not organized their data.

The consequence about the above act is that,when your root drive gets infected by a potential virus, or it gets formatted or loses its data due to a power surge, and you find that you no longer are able to boot your operating system, the only option you have is to format the partition and install the operating system again.

There are ways to recover data but , many users are not experts in recovering data it could cost them much in terms of money when they ask someone for data recovery , but it's always better to be safe than sorry.

Maintain all shortcuts for applications in one folder in your desktop·

  • There are many applications which are usually installed by users, therefore, it is always better to have their shortcuts in one folder to keep the desktop clean and clutter free.
Uninstall the applications that you don't use·

  • This is very crucial, as many people don't liketo uninstall application, but just ignore them despite the fact that they know these application regardless of their are taking up space in their computer's hard disk as well as registry.· Uninstalling such applications helps you to control which programs are useful to you and which aren't.
Hope you enjoy organizing your data.

File organization tips: 9 ideas for managing files and folders


<p>The tips in this article can help you master file management by supplying some tips to help you better manage and organize computer files. After you've decided on a strategy for organizing and managing files and folders, we bet you'll see improved time management skills and increased productivity.<br /> The tips in this article can help you learn how to better manage and organize computer files. After you've decided on a strategy for organizing and managing files and folders, we bet you'll see improved time management skills and increased productivity.<br /><a></a> Tips to manage your files better Use these tips to help with organizing your computer files.<br /> <ol> <li><a></a> <b>Use Documents.</b> For many reasons, it's smart to take advantage of the Documents feature, which is called Documents in Windows 7 and in Windows Vista and is called My Documents in Windows XP. To open Documents in Windows 7 and Vista, click <b>Start</b>, and then click <b>Documents</b> to discover an easy way to store your personal documents.<br /> In Windows 7, the Documents feature is actually a virtual library. By default, the Documents library includes your My Documents or Documents folder and the Public Documents folder. You can customize the Documents library (in addition to the Music, Pictures, and Videos libraries that are also included by default) in Windows 7 to group files and folders from any location on your computer-without actually moving them. Or you can build your own libraries to easily organize your files. Learn more about <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Working-with-libraries">working with libraries</a>.<br /><br /> <img src="files_win7_libraries.jpg" /> <i>Libraries are a flexible way to organize your files in Windows 7 without moving them into one location.</i><br /> By using Libraries in Windows 7, Documents in Windows Vista, and My Documents in Windows XP, you can more easily:<br /> <ul> <li> <b>Find files.</b> Windows provides easy access to the Documents folder (and its subfolders) in many places, including the <b>Start</b> menu, the task pane in Windows Explorer, and common <b>File Open</b> and <b>File Save</b> dialog boxes, among other places. Read about the <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-search">search feature in Windows 7</a>, or read these <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Tips-for-finding-files">tips for finding files</a> in Windows Vista and Windows XP. <br /> <li> <b>Back up files.</b> You should back up files regularly. Documents and libraries can help make backups a snap. <br /> <li> <b>Keep files separate from programs.</b> By separating document files and program files you reduce the risk of accidentally deleting your documents when you install or upgrade programs. To move files or folders from one location to another, right-click the file or folder name in the existing location and then click <b>Cut</b>. Navigate to the new location, and then click <b>Paste</b>. You can also <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Move-and-copy-files-using-drag-and-drop">drag a file or folder</a> from one location to another. To display two folder windows simultaneously in Windows 7, hold down the Shift key when you click to open the second window.<br /></li></ul> <li><a></a> <b>Adopt consistent methods for file and folder naming.</b> When learning how to manage files and folders, it is important that you develop a naming scheme for the kinds of files you create most often and then stick to it. To change an existing file or folder name, right-click the name in the folder structure. Click <b>Rename</b>, and then type the new name. <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Keep names short.</b> Even though you can use long file names in Windows, you should not necessarily do so. Long file names can be harder to read.<br /> Let your folder structure do some of the naming. For example, rather than creating a file called Great American Novel Chapter One First Effort, you can build a structure like this:<br /><br /> <img src="files_win7_folders.png" /> <i>The folder structure can help you avoid using lengthy file names.</i><br /> <li><a></a> <b>Separate ongoing and completed work.</b> To keep the Documents folder from becoming too unwieldy, use it only for files you're actively working on. As a result, you can reduce the number of files you need to search through and the amount of data you need to back up. Every month or so, move the files you're no longer working on to a different folder or location, such as a folder on your desktop, a special archive folder, a flash drive, an external hard disk drive, or even a CD. <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Store like with like.</b> Restricting folders to a single document type (or predominantly one type) makes it easier for you to find files. For example, with all of your graphics in a single folder-or in a single library in Windows 7-it's easy to use the slide show feature in Windows Explorer to find the right picture for your newsletter. You can also use libraries in Windows 7 to group files together for easier searching without moving them into the same place or use the <b>Arrange by</b> command to sort files by criteria, such as author, date modified, and type. These criteria can change based on the file type (documents have different Arrange by criteria than photos, for example). <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Avoid large folder structures.</b> If you need to put so many subfolders in a folder that you can't see all of them at a glance, consider creating an alphabetic menu.<br /><br /> <img src="filestructure.gif" /> <i>Alphabetized folders can help you stay organized.</i><br /> <li><a></a> <b>Use shortcuts and shortcut links instead of multiple copies.</b> If you need to get to the same file from multiple locations, don't create copies of the file. <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Create-or-delete-a-shortcut">Create <i>shortcuts</i></a> to it instead. Shortcuts are links to files or programs and are represented by icons with an arrow in the lower-left corner. To create a shortcut, right-click the file and then click <b>Create Shortcut</b>. You can drag the shortcut to other locations. Microsoft Office 2010 includes some built-in shortcuts with the new Backstage view. To see Backstage view, open an Office file and then click the <b>File</b> tab. In Backstage view, click the <b>Recent</b> tab for a list of links to your recent documents. The <b>Recent</b> tab even includes a <b>Recover Unsaved Documents</b> option. In Backstage view, you can create, save, and send documents, inspect documents for hidden metadata or personal information, set options, and more. <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Quickly get to the items you use every day.</b> Jump Lists, a fun new feature in Windows 7, are lists of recently opened items, such as files, folders, or websites that are organized by the program that you use to open them. You can use a Jump List to open items, and you can even pin favorites to a Jump List. To see a Jump List for a particular program, just right-click the program button on the taskbar.<br /> <li><a></a> <b>Consider storing documents online.</b> You can also keep documents your company's <a href="http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/Pages/default.aspx">Microsoft SharePoint 2010</a> site or on <a href="http://explore.live.com/windows-live-skydrive">Windows Live SkyDrive</a> so that you can easily access them from outside the office, share them, and edit them online by using <a href="http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/web-apps/office-web-apps-FX101825822.aspx">Office Web Apps</a>.<br /></li></ol>

Recovery/Restoration Disk

Yes, I read what you stated

In order to remove all your personal information; at least in the extent you have indicated; you need the Restoration Disk,
or a Full Installation disk. As in a new genuine copy of Windows.

Restoration Disk is a LOT cheaper than a new genuine copy of Windows.

[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer]

Going with information from the US;
The disk is free

The shipping and handling is not

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have the Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative.
This is located in the white Service Tag, on the back of the desktop computer.
S/N = Serial Number

Restoration disk installed, when you are asked choose Full Install.
Destructive Installation

Takes the computer back to Day 1 from the factory

All your personal info is gone

Now let's talk a minute
Your personal information isn't really gone. Even with a 'shredder' program that writes 0's and 1's, hundreds of times over the information on the harddrive, the information is STILL retrievable.

FBI and other agencies, have pulled info off of harddrive's that have been used by drug cartel's, that the computer was in a purposely bombed out building.(Drug lord/s did it)

The harddrive's were BADLY burned, but there was still enough info left.
Bye-bye bad guy's.

To TRULY get rid of any personal info on a harddrive, take it out, smash it with a hammer until very flat, and then burn it.
MAYBE this will do it.

What are the chances of someone, who has the know how to remove your old info?




Really?

How Do I Increase My Speed


there are a few ways to increase the system performance, here's some:
1: remove any programs you don't use, this reduces the disk access time increasing performance
2:remove any toolbars or PuPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) as these also take up disk space
3: Defragment your hard disk, think of the data stored on the disk as a messy room, the defrag tool included with yourOS will clean up and organize this mess to make the system more efficient and disk access will be significantly reduced
4:Clean up the disk, there is a nifty little tool included with your OS called disk cleanup, this will remove temporary and unused files and gets rid of things that you and the system no longer need and frees disk space, decreasing the disk access and seek timings will shorten
and the big one...5: Buy an SSD, this is a super fast disk that originates from the usb pendrive, it's faster, more energy efficient, and can store data without the need to defragment, this is an expensive way to speed up your PC, but by golly is iit worth it!!

I am not able to edit my basic info.


Hi, what basic info exactly are you talking about?
Computer owner / organisation?

If you would like to use a script to change your owner / organisation, please follow the steps below.

NOTE: Executing a .VBS script is usually not a good idea, unless you know what you are doing. Please carefully follow the instructions below.

Below is a custom script made to change your owner/organisation.
Press Start->Run
type notepad.exe, press Enter

copy and paste the following:

'ChgOwnOrg.vbs - Change Win9x Registered Owner/Organization.
'© Bill James - billjames.geo@yahoo.com - rev 29 Oct 1999.
'Modified for Windows XP

Option Explicit

Set ws = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim ws, t, p1, p2, n, g, cn, cg
Dim itemtype

p1 = "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\"

n = ws.RegRead(p1 & "RegisteredOwner")
g = ws.RegRead(p1 & "RegisteredOrganization")
t = "Change Owner and Organization Utility"
cn = InputBox("Type new Owner and click OK", t, n)
If cn <> "" Then
ws.RegWrite p1 & "RegisteredOwner", cn
End If

cg = InputBox("Type new Organization and click OK.", t, g)
If cg <> "" Then
ws.RegWrite p1 & "RegisteredOrganization", cg
End If

--- Stop copying here. DO NOT COPY THIS LINE ---

If you feel at all unsure, do not run this script. All it does it change your Owner and Organisation of the computer.

Save that file (in notepad) as "Change Info.vbs"
Note that you will have to change the "Save as type" to "All Files"

After you are done saving it, close notepad and double click "Change Info.vbs" and it will ask you to enter first your name, and then your organisation.

If this wasn't what you were asking about, or if you don't want to run a .vbs script (I can understand), please let us know.

Copying e.mail messages on a CD


If you make a backup copy you can put it on a disk/CD to restore afterwards if needed. If you just want to move them to a different area but still look at them due to space, you can change where the store is located. Or have you tried setting up personal folders and moving emails to the folders to organize? You could archive by month for example.

I assume you already did the typical Microsoft backup procedure:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/270670

Do you have a full version of Outlook? You could try exporting from Express to Outlook.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA010943871033.aspx

Is that what you need?

Installing sims 2 deluxe


If you are using a floppy disk to install and it wants to format the disk that means it can not read it and is assuming that it is new and needs formatting. It is possible that the duplicating machine wrote a disk with track that are too wide for the floppy that you have. Go to another system and see if it exhibits the same error. It is possible the floppy is corrupt, if it is ok make a copy of the software on the working computer and try teh copy on the offending unit.
