Sounds like you need to install (or activate) the Japanese characters in Vista. I assume you are using MS Office, so you may need to install language packs for Office too.

How to clear my recent documents history?


Hi !
Well 'PRIVACY' is something very important for many of us. After using your laptop or PC, you don't want others to view what you have done etc as it may contain confidential materials.
This will depend on your Operating System e.g Windows XP, Vista or 7.
How to:
Right-click 'start' or 'windows' icon on the lower left of your desktop. Go to properties, start menu/ uncheck list my recent files etc...Apply changes!
For Xp you need to click 'advanced'

Hi,
You can buy Windows XP at many computer stores or online. Here is a link to an eBay seller in the Philippines, where you appear to be from:
http://cgi.ebay.ph/Geniune-Windows-XP-SP2-Home-Edition_W0QQitemZ110336383681QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_211?hash=item110336383681&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A833|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Then you need to install Japanese fonts and the Japanese IME using the Windows xp disk.
Here is a visual guide for you:

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

Windows corrupt and driver set


Hi,

Re your queries:
1. "Is their any possible way to save my data from the other operating system which I can currently use?" - possibly

2. Also, can any one help me to attain the drivers for ASUS z91?
Most of the needed drivers for an Asus Z91E are available at the Asus Website > http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=Z91E

Most corrupt files in Windows would not delete your Japanese My Documents. What would probably be gone would be ntldr, hal, various dlls and sys files but most of your .doc would remain intact.  If you can boot using the English Win XP Pro and presuming you have 2 different usernames 1 for the Japanese and another 1 for the XP Pro, then chances are that you can still access the Japanese My Documents. It may not be shown but it should be there under the Japanese username.

Assumng you have administrator privileges, Click on Start, Control Panel, Folder Options, View, tick: Show hidden files & folders, untick hide extensions for known file types, untick hide protected operating system files.

This should expose what were hidden before. Of course it is a different problem altogether if you have the 2 OSes installed on 2 different partitions.

Hope this be of some help. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
