Need to backup content of Windows 98 computer via USB device

I have a win 98 computer with hundreds of documents and photos (mainly) needing backup. All the external drives and automatic devices I look at require win XP or higher. I have the old USB that came with it not the later fast ones. Any way to do this easily?

Install XP next to win 98 on a separate partition, XP will automaticlly create a bootoption. If not possible, install XP over win98. documents etc will remain intact if you have enough diskspace.

If both are no option, create a backup from windows98 and than copy that one to any USB drive. Backing up from 98 takes veryvery long and so doesn copying to USB.

Oh I have the exact same problem - its because its not formatted for a mac. You need to empty the device before formatting as it will wipe whatever is on it. If you format as FAT32 it can be used by both mac and PC.

The file is still not really deleted. Although the space occupied by the file becomes available for re-use by other files, it doesn't get re-used straight away so the data it contained will stay on your hard drive for some time to come and may be recovered using software that knows what to look for.<br /><br />First things first - If you have Mac machines purchased after November 2007 are installed with the Leopard operating system. One of the most important utilities of the Leopard is Time Machine. This complete backup tool can backup almost anything and everything on a Mac every hour with its unique features.

How do I find where my device has gone?


Try another USB port on your computer? And securely connect the connectors to the external drive and into the computer. Restore computer to a date when it was working fine with this drive.

Where has my storage device gone?


First, reboot your computer; does the external drive reappear in My Computer ?

Go to DiskManagement (Start>Computer (right click)>Management>DiskManagement. Does the disk show up there ?

Check your USB system (Start>Computer (right click)>Properties>DeviceManager>USB controllers inW7; XP same except choose Hardware>DeviceManager); is a Mass Storage Device shown there ? Is the USB 'eject' icon shown on the system tray at the bottom right of your screen (small greenish square) ? If not, then suspect a connection problem. If your computer is recognizing the disk in your USB system but not in the other tools, your drivers may be corrupted. This simple to fix (report back if this seems to be the case)
Check your USB cable is plugged in at both ends. Try a new/different cable. The cable should be as short as possible. Try a different USB socket on your computer. Verify that the cable isn't loose in the disk housing. USB 3.0 connections have often been reported to be mechanically weak and susceptible to breakage. If the socket on external drive is broken, then a return to manufacturer/retailer and replacement may be necessary. Often a consequence of this is loss of data. ALWAYS KEEP BACK-UPs.

Recovery


Before starting anything, get some information. Do you know:
  • What the files are called?
  • Where the files should be located?
  • What backup media you have a backup of the files on?

If you know the answer to the third question, then you can skip ahead. If you know which files need to be restored, but you don't know which media you need to restore from, you can either browse for the file, or use the Search Catalogs feature.
To browse for the file:
  1. Click Restore
  2. Ensure that in the View by box, Resource is selected
  3. Expand the server and resource where the files are located
  4. Browse through the media, folders and files to find the files you want
  5. Select the files and folders you wish to restore
To restore the files:
  1. Ensure you have the files you wish to restore selected
  2. If you wish to restore using a specific device, click Devices and choose the appropriate device
  3. If you wish to restore the files to a different location, click File Redirection, click the Redirect file sets box and choose where you want to restore to. If some of the files you wish to restore may be in use, then it may be a good idea to redirect the file set, then copy the files to the correct location
  4. Click General. If you want to restore the files from the backup media, even if they have been updated, then select Restore over existing files
  5. Click Run Now
  6. If the correct media is not already in the drive, you will be prompted to insert it.

How to remove manually Malwarrior rootkit malaware please help


Sir,

Manual removal of any spyware can be difficult. When you try to manually remove MalWarrior 2007, you risk destroying your PC. It’s highly recommended you use an automatic spyware scanner to determine you’re infected with MalWarrior 2007. It’s also recommended you backup your system any time before editing your registry.


Your Windows registry is the core of your Windows operating system, storing information about user settings, system preferences, and software, including which applications automatically launch at start up. Because of this, spyware, malware, and adware will often bury their own files into your Windows registry so that they automatically launch every time your start up your PC.

Because your registry is such a key piece of your Windows system, you should always backup your registry before you make any changes to it. Editing your registry can be intimidating if you’re not a computer expert, and when you change or a delete a critical registry key or registry value, there’s a chance you may need to reinstall your entire Windows operating system. Make sure your backup your registry before editing it.
  1. Select your Windows menu “Start,” and click “Run.” An “Open” field will appear. Type “regedit” and click “OK” to open up your Registry Editor.
  2. Registry Editor will open as a window with two panes. The left side Registry Editor’s window lets you select various registry keys, and the right side displays the registry values of the registry key you select.
  3. To find a registry key, such as any MalWarrior 2007 registry keys, select “Edit,” then select “Find,” and in the search bar type any of MalWarrior 2007’s registry keys.
  4. As soon as MalWarrior 2007 registry key appears, you can delete the MalWarrior 2007 registry key by right-clicking it and selecting “Modify,” then clicking “Delete.”
Computer acting funny after you’ve edited your registry and deleted MalWarrior 2007 registry keys? Just restore your registry with your backup.
How to remove MalWarrior 2007 DLL files: Like most any software, spyware, adware, and malware may also use DLL files. DLL is short for “dynamically linked library,” and MalWarrior 2007 DLL files, like other DLLs, carryout predetermined tasks. To manually delete MalWarrior 2007 DLL files, you’ll use Regsver32, a Windows tool designed to help you remove DLL and other files.
  1. First you’ll locate MalWarrior 2007 DLL files you want to delete. Open your Windows Start menu, then click “Run.” Type “cmd” in Run, and click “OK.”
  2. To change your current directory, type “cd” in the command box, press your “Space” key, and enter the full directory where the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file is located. If you’re not sure if the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file is located in a particular directory, enter “dir” in the command box to display a directory’s contents. To go one directory back, enter “cd ..” in the command box and press “Enter.”
  3. When you’ve located the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file you want to remove, type “regsvr32 /u SampleDLLName.dll” (e.g., “regsvr32 /u jl27script.dll”) and press your “Enter” key.
That’s it. If you want to restore MalWarrior 2007 DLL file you removed, enter “regsvr32 DLLJustDeleted.dll” (e.g., “regsvr32 jl27script.dll”) into your command box, and press your “Enter” key.

Thanks
Good Luck

Problem with the install of vmware


Perhaps it does not say "instmsia" is missing, but instead "instmsi"?

MSI is a Microsoft Installer module native to newer MS operating system installers, not W98 or W98SE.

Regardless, your computer is definitely telling you that you lack some required resources that are mandatory to install the VMware software.

You should read the documentation carefully, especially "system requirements" because you are definitely missing something that is required to use the software. It may be any of the following:

OS: Perhaps the software you have is for Windows ME, 2000, XP or Vista -but not (your) Windows 98.

CPU/Processor Support: Perhaps you have a 64-bit version of software, rather than 32 bit. Your W98 and W98SE are 32 bit-only operating systems. 64-bit software will NOT run on W98x.

Other Software: Perhaps your version of VMware requires a specific DirectX, Java, or other software/version be installed FIRST. And some versions (many actually) will not run on W98x. MS consumer support was dropped for W98, meaning most new MS-software does not run on W98.

RAM/Video: You may not meet the minimum RAM requirements, or the minimum Videa/Display requirements.

I suspect it is the first cause, since VMware that I have used specifically requires W2K or above (and in fact, required the SERVER version of the OS). But that does not mean there is no W98-compatibility in other versions).

To determine what you lack, you will need to read the documentation that came with your software (specifically, "requirements") and/or consult the VMware website: www.vmware.com to find out what are the minimum requirements.
