Pen drive access denied


USB ports and devices make connecting to another computing device convenient.
USB technology has been around since 1996, and is a feature found on most modern computing devices.
If your device is denied access to one of its USB features, do some troubleshooting to isolate and resolve the problem.
Viruses
Some computers come with a security feature that automatically denies access to a USB device, such as a flash drive, if harmful content is detected.
Installing an anti-virus software application and regularly scanning the computer and any connected USB devices can help you avoid experiencing denied access to a USB device.
Avoid opening USB flash drive files that you cannot identify or do not recognize, as these types of files are how viruses find their way onto unprotected computers.

Incompatibility

Inserting an incompatible device into your computer's USB port can also cause you to be denied access to your device's USB features.
For instance, if your computer supports USB 1.0 technology and you insert a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector, the computer can experience interfacing problems that may cause a "USB access denied" prompt or situation.
If other USB devices begin to malfunction after inserting an incompatible USB cable into your computer, turning the computer off and back on again may resolve the situation.



Formatting
USB flash drives, also known as pen or thumb drives, are among the most common types of USB devices used in conjunction with computers.
Most USB flash drives are formatted using one of three types of formatting methods: FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS.
If you've formatted a USB flash drive using one method, used it on the computer and then reformatted the drive using another method, you can be denied access to the flash drive through the computer's USB port.
Wiping the flash drive clean and reformatting it again can resolve this type of problem.

Considerations

Many computer accessories, including printers and pointing devices, connect through the machine's USB ports and can interface interchangeably with multiple computing devices.
This feature increases the risks of picking up viruses and experiencing unauthorized reformatting. Limiting the amount of computers your USB devices accesses can help you avoid these situations.
Damaged USB cables can also make it impossible to access USB devices when they are connected to your computer.
USB cable damage usually occurs at the points where the cable and its connectors meet. Replace any damaged USB cables.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer Administrator you must have full control.
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

5 Routines to Speed up Your PC


1. Avoid Crowded Desktop

Do you have thousands and thousands of tiny little icons filling up your desktop? Each time our operating system loads it uses the memory to load all the files in the desk top; every time you refresh your computer it also steals your time to reload all the files in the desktop. So my word of advice is ‘KEEP YOUR DESKTOP CLEAN’. Keep only the important shortcuts in the desktop, keep your files in other folders say for example My Documents or in other Drives, etc.

2. Viruses, Malwares and Spywares

Every computer is prone to malwares; when it comes to windows machines they are more vulnerable. Regularly check your computer with a good antivirus software and an anti spyware software (Avast and Ad-Aware are two good free software for this purpose). Also using a firewall will help you prevent some attacks. Performing Regular Virus and Malware checks can help your computer stay healthier and thus improve performance.

3. Unused Programs

Most of us install programs for short period usages. If you have any program that you are no longer using, remove the unwanted programs (Revo Uninstaller is good software that can help you remove unwanted programs effectively). This can help you increase your computer’s performance.

4. Remove Programs from Startup

Have you ever noticed tons of tiny little icons in the right end of your task bar? They can cause your machine slow down dramatically because many of those programs start with your operating system and thus use the valuable resources we need to perform our activities.
You can remove them: Go to Start Menu -> Run and type msconfig and go to the startup tab. Remove all the programs you don’t want to start with your windows by de selecting them.

5. Optimise your hard disk performance

With time the hard disks get filled with fragmented files, corrupted files and temporary files, etc. This can cause your system to perform really slowly. If you don’t regularly check your hard drive for errors and defrag it then it can be deadly.

If you can follow these five suggestions regularly then you will have a stable performance from your pc. Stay tuned for other tips.

Pc really slow to resond pages from internet time out suposed lots of faults to fix supposed faults on regetry.


tep 2 Here are two tricks I want to share with you before we get into the tools.

The first one is Add/Remove Programs. I also included this feature in the Step above. You reach this feature by go to: Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. If your problems occurred right after you installed a new program, find that software you recently installed and click on it. A button should appear on the right-hand side which says either Remove or Change/Remove. Click it. Follow the prompts in order to uninstall the program.

The second trick I want to tell you about is Removing Temporary Internet Files.
Open Internet Explorermag-glass_10x10.gif and find Tools. Click Internet Options. Under the General Tab and the heading of Browsing History, click Delete. A new box will pop up, click Delete All. Check "Also delete..." box and click OK.
To do the same in Mozilla Firefox, open Firefox and choose Tools. Click Clear Private Data. Put a check in all of the checkboxes and click Clear Private Data Now.
What this does is remove temporary files that your computer automatically saves when you browse the internet. It's designed to make browsing faster by storing already viewed data for use later when the same information is accessed again. The problem is that it is a hotspot for viruses and infected files. Also, there may be a lot of these files depending on your settings and if you have ever done this process before. Cleaning out this folder will make our future virus scans quicker and save us a lot of time.
Step 3 Now it is on to the tools. I have mentioned the "free" aspect a few times in this guide and it holds true. However, the next program is not free to everyone, but it's important enough for me to include.
Also, I introduced you to Safemode in a paragraph above. After installing and updating but before running scans with the programs below, start your computer in Safemode and then runs the scans. This will allow the programs to remove threats that it may have problems removing otherwise in normal mode.

Mozilla Firefox
http://www.firefox.com
If you have never heard of Firefox, you are missing out. Think of it as how Internet Explorer should work. It does all of the same things but better. It will open quicker and keep your computer more secure. Download, install, and say goodbye to Internet Explorer.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.

It is probably thinking of Windows Professional or other likeness if that is the case.

If the access is denied, you can try right clicking on the desktop shortcut, select properties, and then click the compatibility tab.

Ensure that the program is set for Windows XP SP2 mode, and that the computer is set to run the executable as an administrator.
