Question about Computers & Internet
The laptop I am using right now is the Eee PC 1000 (40 GB solid state) with window XP service pack 2 installed (in replace to Linux -pre installed). Just like other common user, I set my automatic update On and do whatever update it ask me to do. One day after numerous updates, included IE and sevice pack 3 update, my perivous theme on the computer doesn't work anymore along with the Firefox I am using (in addition to that, the bookmark is gone too - I can't find them in the Local setting folder) I also discover that a big chunk of the hard drive memory is used up without trace on my window-installed drive (I high-light All the folders on that hard drive and click property, showen around 3.5 GB in total while when I click property on the solid hard drive, it said 6.7GB is used). I did a system restore and the window theme works again, but the firefox and memory did come back alive....
so my question is: Where did my memory go?
I don't know if I post enough details about this problem, so if anyone is willing to help this loser please e-mail to email@example.com for more details, Thank you!!
How often do you set a system restore point? Hearing that you did a system restore. is a great idea unless you needed the stuff that got deleted during the restore point...You should have the bookmarks and other applications or anything you had up to the restore point you set last or chose. If you said there was much of your storage used up, it may be due to the new installations (40gb is not much nowadays...a whole operating system uses about and regular use for about up to 6 months, uses pretty much close to 30gb or more, depending on what you do. Question is, if your previous theme was set with linux or do you mean previous theme before you installed updates? You do you need to read the updates as some may change the look and style of your display. usually not, but...let me know if there is more...
