Most tablets dont have the option to plug in an external USB stick. Your best option to transfer data is to either plug them directly into a computer or use email.

How To Remove A Virus From Your Computer


Requirements: On an uninfected PC connected to the Internet, download the following programs to a thumbdrive. We will need this to fix the infected computer.
Instructions:
  1. Shut down the computer as soon as you realize there is a problem. Pop-ups, program errors, dll errors, fake Anti-Virus scanners, and similar are signs there is a problem. Shut down the computer normally, or hold the power button in until the computer shuts off.
  2. Power on the computer, and hit F8 before the Windows Startup screen appears. Select Safe Mode.
  3. Login if asked to, if not select Yes to continue.
  4. Click on the Start menu, select Run, type msconfig and press Ok, or type msconfig into the Start menu search box and press Enter.
  5. Under the General tab, select Diagnostic Startup. Press Apply.
  6. Under the Services tab, check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, and uncheck any services you don't recognize in the window.
  7. Under the Startup tab, select Disable All. Press Apply and Ok.
  8. Don't restart the computer yet.
  9. The System Restore Utility backs up selected files automatically to the Restore folder. Quite often are infected files stored there as backup files, and many Virus Scanners are unable to delete these files. If you suspect your computer may be infected, it is recommended that you disable the System Restore Utility to remove the infected files from the Restore folder.Select your OS for directions on how to disable the System Restore Utility - XP, Vista, 7
  10. While in Safe Mode, insert your USB thumbdrive and open it in My Computer.
  11. Open Combofix.exe, select Ok when it asks. Let Combofix scan and remove any infections it finds. It should restart the computer when it is done. When it restarts, boot up into Windows normally.
  12. Login if asked to, open your thumbdrive in My Computer again, and run Combofix.exe once more.
  13. Open up SmitFraudFix.exe from your thumbdrive. Press any key to continue when asked. Type 2, and press enter. When the scan is complete, restart your computer.
  14. If you had a fake Anti-Virus Scanner infection, open up Remove Fake Antivirus.exe from your thumbdrive. Press Start, and press Yes. When the scan and removal is Complete, restart the computer again.
  15. Install Microsoft Security Essentials, or your choice of Anti-Virus Software when the computer returns back to the desktop.
  16. Restart if asked to, and when the computer restarts, run a Full Scan in Microsoft Security Essentials.

Hi there, I have just installed 7.10 and I would like to upgrade to the Ubuntu latest version... How can I do that? Can I dowload it or should I order the install CD? Many thanx,*


11.04 is the most stable and current version. You can upgrade from 7 to it with a thumb drive, and an installed program.

Go to the Ubuntu Website and download 11.04 iso.

Download and install UNetBootin.
Insert your thumbdrive, format it.
Open UNetBootin.
Select "Disk Image" then locate the location of the 11.04 iso you downloaded.
Then at the bottom, select your thumbdrive, and click OK

This will then get your thumbdrive bootable, and install 11.04 too it.

Once that's done. Shut down your computer, boot from the thumbdrive, and follow the upgrade instructions.

Best part, about "Upgrade". It'll 99% of the time keep your documents intact and just update the software.

Whenever I plug a thumbdrive I now get a bluescreen warning about XP shutting down to protect my computer and then the computer reboots. This happens whether I plug in either my Sandisk or PNY thumbdrives...


Usually blue screen errors are associated with hardware. Since you are experiencing problems after migrating the motherboard it has to do something with it.
Try removing the Jumpers and cables associated with the usb ports on your motherboard and refix them back. This will probably help you fix the problem (also make sure your jumper and cable configurations are correct - they can usually be found on *********** board manual)
If the problem still persists try taking the whole machine apart and refix it again.
Hopefully this will help you. Best Regards NextDoorNerd

Don't have a problem, just don't know how to use flash drive


Simply plug in the thumbdrive into any available USB slot. It will show up in "My Computer" - generally named the same as the manufacturer of the drive.

From here it's all just drag and drop into the thumbdrive. You can make folders, or whatever you want as though it were a normal hard drive.

When you're done, right click on the drive in My Computer and select "Eject" - then you're done.

Rescue data on optima attache 4G thumb drive?


Leave the thumbdrive plugged in to the computer and reboot.

Right click on my computer, click Manage, click on disk management, locate your thumb drive, right click and choose assign (or change) a drive letter. If it already has a drive letter, give it a different one as it’s already in use

Is this thumb drive USB specific? Some of the newer ones require a 2.0 USB port. It's possible you're plugging it into a 1.0 port.

open my computer and hit the f5 key on your keyboard for a refresh.. might not have posted.

Usb device not recognized


If your laptop is running Windows ME, 2000, XP or above, it should automatically do the New Hardware thing, and mount the drive. If using Windows 98se, you can probably get the drivers from the vendors web site.

Sometimes a usb port will not provide enough power for a specific device. Does the thumbdrive work in other computers? And do other USB devices work when connected to the laptop?
