if you have XP, right click on the desktop and choose properties. This opens the Display properties box. Click on the Desktop tab and choose the Customize Desktop button on the bottom. In the new popup box called Desktop Items, check My Computer and click OK. It should be there now.

I want to take pictures using my web camera on my computer but i can't find it. what should i do?

There are different webcam softwares used to launch your computer web cam. So I would not know which was installed on your pc. But majority of them have the word 'cam' in their names. Eg 'youCam', 'yawCam', etc. So you would have to manually search your list of programs from the start menu for any installed program that has any form of 'cam' name. The Icons usually depict an eye. An alternative to manually searching your programs list on the search menu, is to simply type the words 'cam' in the search bar. The result with a 'cam' name and eye like icon is your program. Launch it to start your webcam. To ease you of further stress, you could either create a desktop shortcut for it, or pin it to your start bar.

Hope that helped?
Have a wonderful day.

My computer will not open any exe files all the files on the desktop have the adobe icon and I dont know how to get my computer back to the orginal settings

Hello jlindsey23, You will need to right-click on one of the exe files and click on "open with". A dialog box will open up where you can select the program u want it to open with. Simply choose the appropriate program that it usually uses and then be sure to check the box that says "always use this program".
For each of the file type that you do this with, it will reverse all of those file types. For example, if you do this with a Microsoft word document, all of the other microsoft word document will remove the adobe icon and will be replaced with the word icon.
Repeat the same process for all other files you notice that still has the adobe icon.
Thanks and good luck to you Lolita

Dell Inspiron 1525, running xp professional. If laptop is not plugged in, battery icon is displayed. But when its plugged it, it disappers, how can i have it displayed all the time, so I know if its fully...

the easiest way to know is when its fully charge the charging light will go off. there is no need for the icon on this laptop but if you really want it on there if you click the battery when its not on charge it should display some options for power management you should have a check box to tick for it to be displayed and it will take you to the menu for charging options anyway you'll see the option there!!

Desktop Icons

I believe it was a virus. If it ever comes back run hijack this (free) and have somebody take a look at the log. It will remove almost anything. You can also take a look at the task manager to make sure explorer, or any other program, isn't causing explorer to freeze and restart (it will be taking a large amount of memory or cpu usage).

There might be something wrong with the monitor or the video cable. Please make sure the connections are in tact. If they are, then verify first that the monitor is working ok. Otherwise, it might need replacing.
