Question about Computers & Internet
Morning to everyone. I'm sure weather this is a problem or not but i'm curious about it. I've seen in some of my friends notebook.
Usually when we open "my computer", all the words like "Shared Documents", Owner's Documents", "Local Disk (C)", "Removable Disk (E)", "DVD-RAM Drive (G)" etc something like that written in black colour words. But in my friend notebook, the "Local **** (C)" is written in blue colour, others are written in black.
Whenever there's this blue colour words appear (not only in "my computer) i'm gonna have a problem to eject the external usb pen-drive. The computer will say it's busy and try to remove it later (something like that).
Now, my question is, is it because of a virus? If it is a virus, what should i do and how?
Thanks for listening to my problem :-)
Hope to hear from ant of you soon...
Means there are compressed files there

Blue color means that there are compressed folders or files in the drive/folder. What you need to do is block out about 3 hours to not use your computer then:
1. Open My Computer right click on C drive and choose properties.
2. There is a check box that says compress files to save space. Check that box and apply.
3. The drive will begin to compress allow it to run until you get a dialogue that pops up and you can choose to "ignore all". Once you get that error you can then cancel the rest of the drive compression.
***NOTE*** If you wait 1 minute and don't get that error go ahead and cancel you'll get the same results. 4. Now your computer believes that your C drive is compressed or at least enough that we can now unapply that compression.
5. So repeat the sequence with my computer - C: - properties and now you want to uncheck that compress box and apply.
6. Again the drive will begin to work.
7. You should again have the dialogue pop up again. You would like to ignore all and ok.
This decompression typically takes 2-3hrs it will start out at like 2 days and fluctuate. Once it finishes you'll want to restart but you should see significant improvement in your processing speed as well.
One final note. I typically turn off the desktop cleanup wizard. This is likely how those files got compressed...
