Go to My Computer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View and select "show hidden files and folders" this should enable you to see the application data folder.

Scanner fails to format image


Turn off your scanner. Exit the Smart Touch program.

If XP, navigate to this path: C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Smart Touch\[Scanner Model]

Windows 7 or 8: C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\Smart Touch\[Scanner Model]

Delete the "Sys" folder. Turn on the scanner. Re-open Smart Touch. You will see the Sys folder repopulate in the root folder.

I deleted all my bookmarks from chrome accidently, i wish to restore all my bookmarks, i have around 2000 book marks


You should be able to see your hidden folder , so that you can see the Local settings folder.
For Xp user's, Go to : C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
For Vista user's, Go to : C:\Users\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
You can see a file named 'Bookmarks.bak' . May be you can make a backup copy of this folder for safety purpose, but it works out usually. Delete the file 'Bookmark' and rename the file 'Bookmarks.bak' to 'Bookmarks'.

Everytime i open my Yahoo messenger it freezes my computer... what should i do?


Try a clean uninstall reinstall of Yahoo messenger.
Assuming that your Operating system is Windows XP. First go to Start>Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs
Select Yahoo Messenger & Click on Remove. Once it is completed, Open My Computer > Local Disk C:\Program Files\Yahoo! and delete this folder.
Delete the folders below if exists.
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Yahoo
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Yahoo!
Then download the latest version from the Yahoo website and install it.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

AOL Software


Hi there,

The file which is missing is located in
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AOL\C_America Online 9.0\idb\SNMaster.id

Browse to C:\Program Files\AOL 9.1\ and double click on aol.exe. It should start just fine.

To copy the AOL data files and move them to the right location:
1. Click the Start button, then open My Computer.

Note: If using Windows Vista, click the Start button, then click Computer.

2. Access the AOL folder.

If using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, double-click the Local Disk (C:), then navigate to Windows\All Users\Application Data\AOL folder.
If using Windows Vista, double-click the Local Disk (C:), then navigate to the Windows\ProgramData|AOL folder. Windows Vista users can alternatively search for C_AOL90 to find it.

3. Right-click the C_AOL90 folder, then click Copy.
Note: If there are multiple copies of the C_AOL90 folder, copy the folder with the later letter next to it. e.g.: If you have C_AOL90a and C_AOL90b, then C_AOL90b is folder that would need to be copied.

4. Paste the folder into the correct location.
If using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, navigate to the C:\Documents And Settings\All Users\Application Data\AOL folder. Right-click the AOL folder, then click Paste.
If using Windows Vista, navigate to the C:\ProgramData\AOL folder. Right-click the AOL folder, then click Paste.
Notes:

If you do not find the Application Data folder, it may be hidden. To see all hidden folders on Windows XP or 2000, click the Tools menu, click Folder Options, then click the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, choose the Show hidden files and folders option by clicking it, then click the OK button.
If you do not find the ProgramData folder, it may be hidden. To see all hidden folders, click the Organize menu, click Folder and Search Options, then click the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, choose the Show hidden files and folders option by clicking it, then click the OK button.

5. Launch the AOL® software again.

Warm regards,

How do I transfer pictures, music etc from the old computer to the new one


Several ways. Best is to get an external hard drive - they are cheap and they offer backup.

Another way is to hook up both computers on a network. can be done without a router or an ethernet hub - switch via a "cross" cable (as opposed to "patch" cable. Please be advised that the second option is by far cheaper but it could be a pain to set up properly.

hiya,

try this it may help you,. if it doesnt if you send an email to technohelp@live.co.uk with the operating system your running on your laptop....
STEP ONE: Determine where you will store your data. The very best place to keep data is on your H:/ (a.k.a. Home drive). This server (bonsai) keeps your data accessible to you at all times and is backed up on a daily basis. If your computer crashes it will NOT affect any data stored on this network drive. Your H drive is automatically mapped for you every time you log onto your NAU domain computer, so all you have to do is double-click your My Computer icon, then double-click the drive called "[userid] on 'bonsai.ucc.nau.edu'".
If you do not want to use your H drive, you can back up to a blank CD or to another hard drive.
STEP TWO: Determine what data you need to save.
Windows XP:
Most files are saved in the My Documents folder. The best way to view what folders are on your hard drive (and see your My Documents folder) is to RIGHT-CLICK on My Computer and choose Explore. Using the file structure on the left you can check the contents of the folders on your C drive. To find your My Documents folder, navigate to: Local Disk (C:) > Documents and Settings > your user name > My Documents. If there are several users make sure that you check with the other people who use the computer so you can save their documents as well. Each user will have a My Documents folder under their user name folder.
Windows Vista:
Most files are saved in the Documents folder. This folder is typically located at Local Disk (C:) > Users > User Name > Documents.
If you have files or folders on your desktop they will be located at Local Disk (C:) > Documents and Settings > your user name > desktop or Local Disk (C:) > Users > your user name > Desktop.
STEP THREE: Copy your data to the storage area. This is easily accomplished by opening the source and destination folders and clicking and dragging your data folders.
Or you can:
  • open the folder where data is stored
  • use Ctrl + a to select all the items within the folder OR hold down the CTRL key and click on the files you wish to save
  • use Ctrl + c to copy the data
  • open the destination folder (on your H drive or whatever storage you've chosen)
  • use Ctrl + v to paste the data into the destination folder

Will not boot completely


Hi dalenaftzger, windows can not load your primary partition. One of your partition is damaged. Dell
Hi dalenaftzger, windows can not load your primary partition. One of your partitions is damaged. Dell systems have more than one partition on their hard disk drives. Two partitions are hidden. Try this;
Start up the computer and press F12 key to give you the boot-up options.
Insert Windows Installation/Recovery CD into your CD-ROM. Choose CD-ROM boot option & press enter.
Let the installation process continue until it prompts you to, Press R to repair. This should then take you into the DOS mode. Type in FIXBOOT & when prompted, press "Y" to start creating the new boot partition. If everything goes right, you should get a message saying the partition was corrupted and a new one was created successfully. Remove the CD & reboot your system.

Play it safe if your system boots windows. Check windows for any updates. Run a full system virus scan. Run windows check disk & windows defrag.
Just in case the drive is starting to go. If you have a CD/DVD writer start backing up your personal data. The most common folder to back up are:
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents
Data from any program you may have installed.

Armed with the above folders backed up to CD/DVD, you'll loose very little if you have to replace the hard disk drive.

Good luck dalenaftzger!
