Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Ativa 512mb flash drive and I have WinXP as my OS when I put in my flash drive XP prompted me to chose an action to have my computer do when I put my drive in again and I accidentally chose the wrong one. I chose for it to read the files within the device which is a huge problem because it is password protected. So basically it's trying to open a password protected device without a password. And I can't chose to do anything else. Help please.

  • Windows Vista - Go to Start -> Control Panel -> AutoPlay (while in Control Panel's Classic View). Find "Mixed Content" and select "Ask me every time" or "Take no action".
  • Windows XP - I cannot find anything for XP. However, if you go to Control Panel -> Folder Options (In Classic View), and click the "File Types" tab, and then select "Drive", you can double click that, and set the default one to be "find", or maybe delete the current one.
Hope this helps,

Save, and it should work fine!

If your system is giving you so much performance problem and you have fixed it...


If your system is giving you so much performance problem and you have fixed it now and then, it may be time to reformat the system.

To start, you must have the OS CD you want to run on your system. It may be the same as the one you are running or a newer version. I will advice you get the original CD of the OS this way you can be sure you are installing a complete and certified version of the OS. It will also be bootable. You should also have the copy of all the software you want to run on the system. You may also download the latest drivers for the OS before start the re-installation.

Before starting, move all your document and other important files to the D drive if you have more than one Drive on your system or to an external drive.

Put the OS CD on the CD-ROM and restart the system. As the system boots it will prompt you to press any key to boot from the CD-ROM. at this time press any key and the system will boot from the system. It will prompt you for upgrade or custom installation. Chose custom installation and you will be prompted to choose the drive to install into. Chose drive C and chose the delete option. (Note that this will wipe out all you have previously on this drive).

You will be returned to previous window (with drive and option to delete format etc) click continue and when prompted to format click continue. (Note: this will give you a clean installation without the files and error in the old installation).

After the formatting process the OS is temporarily load to the hard disk and the installation continues. Read very prompting properly before accepting any option provided. Follow the on screen guide and complete the installation. At the end of the installation you will be prompted to enter the computer name and password you can change the default suggested computer name and enter your preferred name. Then enter your desired password.

When you complete this process you have installed a new OS on your system. Update the driver on the system with the drive CD or the downloaded drivers.

Install other necessary software and your system is as good as new.
