A better solution is that Re install your Windows but if you you say that you have no set-up disc then you can get it from anyother pc or laptop having same Operating system by copying your desired folder.

Tip

My Pictures Slideshow screensaver


Make use of the Windows XP's My Pictures Slideshow screensaver for this purpose. Follow the steps:
Using Paint brush (mspaint.exe), create 10 or more images with a Black background in each. Open each image file and embed your company logo in it, in (place it in random areas, one in each image).
Create a folder for the image files you've created, and place the images in that folder. Assign this folder read-only permissions for all the users.
Now, configure the screensaver under your user profile. In the My Pictures Screensaver properties, do the following:
Set the folder where you've stored the image files
Set the interval using How often should the pictures change slider.
Uncheck all the checkboxes at the bottom of the dialog
Click OK and save the changes
Set the Screensaver Timeout to a preferred value in minutes
Test the Screensaver in your profile to see everything is fine

My xp does not work well. the screensaver does not appear. It can not repair itself.


Hello, there can be multiple causes and solutions to this type of problem you have but my guess is that there is a service not running properly for the screensaver as in THIS Microsoft article.

To view services to see if the Human Interface driver is working go to start->Run->type in the box "services.msc" without the double quotes, and then find the service mentioned in the microsoft article.


OR you can use the registry editor to modify your screensaver settings (PLEASE ASK FOR FURTHER HELP OR CLARIFICATION WITH THIS / USE WITH CAUTION IF YOU DONT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING).

SImple example: Go to start->Run-> type in "regedit" and then go to the following registry entry/folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ there you can find the screensaver key named:ScreenSaveActive, if set to 0 set it to 1 and vice versa to enable/disable screensaver modify settings.

When I close Windows Mail my Inbox emptys. Help!


You really should install service pack two and all other updates, b/c you are leaving yourself wide open for all sorts of problems and malware. There is a remote possibility that someone set your inbox properties to archive or empty upon closing. You can right click on your inbox folder and go to properties, auto-archive, and check the length of time mail is to be kept. Exact instructions are difficult w/o knowing the program you are using. You can also search deleted and archive folders for lost mail. You should run a full virus scan and look for trojans immediately.6df770b.jpg

You don't have a virus, you have the folders without an executeable link. Use windows explorer to delete the files you want to get rid of.

Screensaver


Vista uses a different technology for screen savers than in the past. The screensavers and backgrounds are active. Older screensaver software (I inferred from your post that you had a favorite that both of you used and not one from MS) will probably not work here.
