    Let me tell you the problem history. I had win vista previously. I copied some files into a directory and hide the folder. After some time, I degraded to XP. When I opened my passport drive, I saw a green folder. Ok till now, I could copy files but not able to get previous files. And history repeats itself everytime I reinstall my XP. Well the thing is...is there any way to access those older files?

  • Anonymous Dec 23, 2008

    Still I am working on vista with my passport drive in my office. I am not able to get those files and getting the same problem. I think, the passport drive will need the same username to access those files. Thanks for your reply. Will certainly help me. Will comment again if I succeed.

    If you saved the files using Vista then XP will not allow access, only Vista will. Sad to say but only way to access them is if you reinstall Vista and open them. Hope this helps.

NO PERMISSION TO EDIT OR VIEW As an administrator, I thought I have all the privileges to edit, view read, modify, execute and write any folder, but on certain folders I must first grant myself the...


you need to Take ownership of those files...
For Files:

takeown /f file_name /d y
icacls file_name /grant administrators:F
For Folders or Directories (will perform action recursively):
takeown /f directory_name /r /d y
icacls directory_name /grant administrators:F /t
Replace file_name or directory_name with actual file name or folder name, with path when applicable. The first command will take ownership of the file or folder specified, and the second command will grant full control permissions to administrators user group. Note that when using command for folders, to command will run recursively. To prevent the task been perform recursively, remove the “/r” and “/t” switch.
Above two commands have been scripted in Windows command shell batch script that easily perform the task of taking ownership and grant full control permissions to Administrators user group by typing simple command. Alternatively, users can add “Take Control Of” option to right click menu so that the next time you need to take control of a file with full control permissions, it’s just a one click task.

  • Delete the folder ‘WgaLogon’ and all its contents

Or,

disabe and rename the files ‘WgaLogon.dll’ and ‘WgaTray.exe’ in C:WINDOWSsystem32 folder by using the program Unlocker seems to get rid of all the nags/popups.

  • Right click WgaLogon.dll in Windows Explorer and open the Security Tab.
  • Click Advanced button.
  • Uncheck the Inherit box at the bottom.

  • Click OK to apply the permission changes.
  • Close the file properties dialog.
  • Restart the computer.
  • Turn “Use simple file sharing” on (optional).
OR

Install ZoneAlarm firewall, and configure to kill or disallow “WGA” in the allowed programs section.

Or,

Download and install Autoruns from www.sysinternals.com. Run the program, go to the WinLogon tab and uncheck (disable) the WgaLogon, as suggested by PSnet.

You computer is infected by the spyware virus try to run in the safemode and download and install spyware doctor of pctools also the registry mechanic this two utilities is very helpful in term of spyware virus. But sometime if your computer infected by the UST.AVI virus you cannot install any program even the anti virus. The virus automatically close any program you install to prevent the anti virus to install in the system. If this happen the only way to salvage the files is reinstall the windows in the other directory then after you finished install windows. You can copy now the the files in the old directory copy of the windows your needed files. and delete the old windows directory permanently.

Dos Problem


If you are only trying to move your data file, then create the new directory using the cd command e.g.  cd test.  Then move the file to the new directory either using the move command or the copy command eg. copy test.file c:\test\test.file
Alternatively you should try using the old text editor program in dos to load your file and then save to the directory of  your choice.   good luck
