You must change the setting for folders to show hidden files
That option is under controllpanel/folders
If you dont change that otion you'l never see the hiden files and folders, it's easy done, enter controllpanel, enter folders, under the second flap you will see an option "Handel hidden files and folder", chang that one from "hidde" to "show", press OK
Thats it!

Good luck

If you prefer, you can then go back to the Folder Options to hide HIDDEN FILES/FOLDERS from Windows Explorer again.

I can't find the files I stored on a Nexxtech flash drive. Windows explorer doesn't show any files on the removable disk but it shows that 2 gbs of file storage is used. I checked the drive for problems...


If i am right, your Flash is infected by virus and so files or folders are hidden, to unhide the hidden files and folders, you need to do a little trick or simple as the settings. Here we go.. Insert the flash drive - Open it in Windows Explorer - Click on the Tools on the Menu - Select Folder options - Click on the View Tab - next scroll down and select the Show Hidden Files - and again just below the show hidden files, you will see another option which is checked Hide Protected Operating Files, uncheck it and click yes. Hope this will help you, if you can follow this tip, please refer to my tip Show Hidden Files and Folder_1. Good luck..

FREE UP HARD DRIVE SPACE


Hi! Your 3 Gigs of memory have nothing to do with your disk storage. You may try freeing some disk space by doing the following:
Clean up your recycling bin by selecting the Empty Recycle Bin option, after right clickin on the icon.
Clean up the All User's temp directory, usually within your Windows installation drive-> Windows folder, called TEMP folder.
Clean up your own TEMP folder, usually hidden and found within your own user name folder. To make this folder visible, in File Explorer, go to Folder Options, and find the entry that reads: Hide system files. Uncheck the option. Make sure you reset it after you're done.
A little riskier is to try to resize your virtual memory, or the amount of disk space that Vista (and other versions of Windows) uses to emulate physical RAM, when you have exhausted it.
You may also save disk space by sacrificing the Hibernation feature by disabling it. If you do this, by going to the Advanced Settings of Vista, under System, uncheck the box next to your drive, and while having Hide System Files also unchecked, you can physically delete the file, usually found at the root of your main drive (usually C:) Note: For this change to take effect, you will have to restart your system with a cold boot.
Try buying some software similar to Norton Utilities (a reduced of it is available in Norton 360) that will defragment your drive but will also clean up stray and orphan files left behind by improper uninstallation of other software and temp files left behind when an application like Word, or any other, crashes.
Good luck!

Preventing Reinfection of Virus for newly installed XP.


Hello XP users, Hi, here is a tip of how to prevent viruses from reinfecting your PC, the virus is well usually comes from your USB flash drives, and or your back up files from your hard drives as I assume you have a Drive D: Here are the things you should do so that you will not get reinfected.
Im assuming you are using XP
1. Reformat/reinstall again your OS and as for your Hard Drive, set 2 partitions, for system this would be drive C: and for Data, this is for drive D:2. After installing the XP (you now at this point have a start button) caution: do not use any flash drive or open your other drives, set you folder options to Show all files and Folders.
start->my computer->tools->folder options->view on the hidden files and folder, select Show hidden files and folderand uncheck the two checkbox below, (this is hide extension and hide protected .... )apply and or OK
3. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the RUN option
start->run then type GPEDIT.MSC then OK
4. Under Group Policies, goto administrative templates -> system -> turn off autoplay then enable select all drives -> OK ->exit
this will make the autorun.inf functions not to load automatically. This option makes the virus not to load automatically. caution again, at this point be cautious of what you will DOUBLE CLICK.
5. install an antivirus software, (any freeware will do, but i prefer the AVAST one)
your PC is now protected from reinfections.
you can now scan ALLl your drives and flash drives.
You can also manually delete the virus files on your drives. they are usually folder looking files, usually 743/744 bytes. You can also see some recycle bin ICONS with unusual names (who created them?) If you did not create them, erase them files.

Run SEARCH on all drives except C: with all .EXE files and under the what size is it? select medium. then click search.
on the search result, delete all the folder looking .EXE files with 743 or 744 bytes (usually).
caution one more: before opening a removeable flash drive, do the SEARCH thing on this drive.
Your done. = }

Pc is very slow. and stops sometime . have 80% of HD space. 500some menory


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

HOW TO LOCK pc DRIVES


Method 1 (the easy one)
    1. Click “Start”, “Run,” and then type cmd. When the command prompt opens type “CD C:\Test” (replace “Test” with the name of the folder you want to hide.)
    2. Now type “attrib file +s +h” and replace “file” with the name of the actual file name you would like to hide.
    3. Now, go back to C:\Test and look for your file or folder, it’s not there! You cannot find it through simply browsing around, through the command prompt, or even if you click “Show Hidden Files and Folders”.
    4. To find the folder and it’s contents again simply go back to the command prompt, type “CD C:\Test” (of course, again replacing “Test” with the name of the folder,) and then type “attrib filename -s -h”. You should now be able to find your file again

    Method 2 (this is where it starts to get slightly more difficult) :

My Windows Explorer does not show extentions


By default, file extensions for known file types are hidden in Windows XP. However, you can change this setting so that file extensions are shown for files in a certain folder or for all files on your hard disk.
To show file extensions, first open any folder on your hard drive, such as "My Computer" or "My Documents." Then select "Folder Options..." from the Tools menu as shown below.
545a526.gif When the Folder Options window opens, click the View tab. This will show the file and folder view settings.
95b32b0.gif One of the options under Advanced settings is "Hide extensions for known file types." If this option is checked, uncheck the checkbox and click Apply or OK. This setting is system wide, so unchecking this box will make file extensions appear in all folders.
If you decide to hide file extensions at a later time, you can check the box again and click OK to revert back to the previous settings.

Pop up on computer says I have low disk space on hp-recovery(d) but I have nothing on that drive to get rid of


well..that's a drive that HP sets aside, as part of your c drive for recovery. you can back that up online, or elsewhere, and then wipe that part clean..if you like.. but be careful NOT to wipe the other side of the disk..

another approach, is to re partion the drive, but that's not something that I advise for just anyone.
