We really, to be any use, need to know what you exactly mean. For instance; I cannot access my files because the password is invalid or because windows won't load. etc. If windows will not boot, what is the final message?

How to enable & disable USB ports easily


if you need to disable USB devices from working accessing your system or prevent devices from working on usb ports (USB port blocking) create the following Registry file.

open note pad and copy/paste the following 2 lines

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor]

"Start"=dword:00000004

save the file name as

disableUSB.reg

when you double click the file it will disable all usb ports on your system ..and preventing anyone from installing or copying files to/from your system and usb devices will no longer work

to reverse this process/access do the same as above but copy/paste these 2 lines

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor]

"Start"=dword:00000003

save the file name as

enableUSB.reg

Now when you double click the file it will enable all usb ports on your system ..and allowing access to installing or copying files to/from your system and connecting devices to your system.

This has been tested on WIndows 98/XP ..and may not work on Vista/Windows 7

Process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights. If I click OK or simply close the dialog box, the computer will try to re-start but post the same dialog box over...


Sounds like a corrupt system file. Try repairing using the Windows disk for the laptop. If that doesn't work, you will likely have to reinstall Windows.

First you need to disable autorun feature on Windows operating system :

Follow steps in link :

http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-disable-autorun-autoplay-in-windows-7-and-windows-8/

After disabling the feature you will have access to your memory card/USB stick. The next step is to delete autorun.inf virus file hidden on your memory card/USB stick. But first you need to make the hidden virus file visible.

Follow steps in link to show hidden system files :

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/

Now navigate to your memory card/USB stick you should see the autorun.inf file - DELETE IT.

(If it doesnt allow you to delete it - restart the PC in safe mode by pressing F8 on start up and choosing safe mode and try again)

Back up your files on the memory stick/USB stick to your PC and to make sure the virus is gone from the memory stick/USB format it using your PC.

Dont to forget re-hide your system files to prevent accidental deletion.

Good luck!

My hard disk is shown up in the external inputs but not read i.e unaccessible


You can gain access to a working hard drive that is inaccessible when the system starts and assign it a drive letter under the Windows Explorer interface. Or, you can import foreign disks into Windows or create a partition and format them. You can scan a drive for bad sectors or lost clusters and repair the system files to allow access to a corrupted drive. In short, you can utilize the drives as they were intended to be used by completing some operating-system configuration steps that are occasionally required for some drive installations.

Click "Start" (the Windows Orb) and "Computer" to access the Windows Explorer screen. Right-click on the inaccessible drive and choose "Properties" from the context menu. Click the "Tools" tab and click "Check Now" under the Error-Checking section. Select both check boxes to allow the system to automatically fix file-system errors and to scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. Allow the system to run the scan the next time the system is booted. Restart the computer to complete the scan and check for access after the scan completes. Click "Start" (Windows Orb) and "Computer" to access the Windows Explorer screen. Right-click on the inaccessible drive and choose "Properties" from the context menu. Click the "Security" tab and click "Edit" to change permissions for the drive. Click "Users" from the Group or User Names section. Check the "Allow" box for full control and check for access after the settings are saved. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and then click "Administrative Tools" and double-click "Computer Management" to launch the utility. Click "Disk Management" to display a list of all detected drives in the system. Right-click in the left column of the inaccessible drive and click "Import Foreign Disk" to allow the system to convert the disk signature to a local disk. Check for access after the settings are saved. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and then click "Administrative Tools" and double-click "Computer Management" to launch the utility. Click "Disk Management" to display a list of all detected drives in the system. Right-click in the right column of the inaccessible disk and choose "Change Drive Letters and Path." If no letter exists, click "Add" and assign a drive letter from the list of available letters. If a drive letter is listed, click "Change" and select a new letter to eliminate any conflicts with other devices in the system. Check for access after these settings are in place, which may require a restart of the system. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and then click "Administrative Tools" and double-click "Computer Management" to launch the utility. Click "Disk Management" to display a list of all detected drives in the system. Right-click in the right column of the inaccessible disk and choose "New Simple Volume" to create a partition and format it for use. Click "Next" when the New Simple Volume Wizard appears. Click "Next" to accept the maximum for the drive. Click "Next" to accept the suggested drive letter assignment. Click "Next" to format the volume with the suggested defaults or change them if desired. Click "Finish" to format the drive and make it accessible to the operating system. Restore a Drive That Is Not Accessible b> Microsoft Windows operating systems support a large number of file system formats including FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS. Hard drives are typically formatted with either FAT32 or NTFS, both of which can be used for years without issues. Damage can occur to the file system through a sudden power outage, malicious software or lack of maintenance, rendering the drive unreadable or inaccessible. Run the Chkdsk utility in Windows to resolve file system corruption and restore access to the hard drive.

Select the "Start" or "Globe" button and then click "Programs." Click "Accessories" and then right-click the command line icon in the menu that appears. Click "Run as Administrator" in the drop down menu that appears. The command prompt will display. Enter "chkdsk C: /F" substituting the "C:" with the letter assigned to the drive that cannot be accessed, and then tap the "Enter" key. Enter "Y" and tap the "Enter" key if a message appears that states "Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)." Let the disk scan run and fix the drive, or if the scan does not start, reboot and let the scan run and repair the drive.

But how do you go to all those places if your mouse isn't working?


If the keyboard works - you can still operate the computer. The tab key will allow you to access the various windows on the desk top. The Windows Start key will allow you to open programs. The Alt key along with a letter combination will allow you to manipulate files....and so on. You don't really need a mouse to operate a computer.

Got a virus - cleaned it out- computer would then only connect to internet in safe mode with networking but now won't connect at all


hi, try this

The suspicion of possible errors in system files in Windows, it may be worth a try to run the "hidden" program that comes with just Windows.
System allows an administrator to scan all protected files to verify their versions.

If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version from the cache folder (% Systemroot% \ System32 \ Dllcache) or source files for Windows installation, and replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and filling up the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc / scannow, sfc / Scanonce or sfc / scan boot to repair its contents.

To use SFC:

1) Press Start
2) Select Run ...
3) Enter: sfc / scannow and press OK
(Remember that there should be space after sfc)



More info about the System
Sfc [/ Scannow] [/ Scanonce] [/ Scan Boot] [/ Revert] [/ Purgecache] [/ Cache Size = x]

• / Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation.

• / Scanonce: Scans all protected system files once when you start the computer. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation when you start the computer. SfcScan DWORD value 2 in the following registry key when you run this command:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

• / Boot Scan: Scans all protected system files every time you start your computer. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation every time you start your computer. SfcScan DWORD value of 1 in the following registry key when you run this command:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

• / Revert: Restoring default scan setting (not scan protected files when you start your computer). The default cache size is not reset when you run this command. This command is equivalent to the / Enable switch in Windows 2000.

• / Purgecache: Purges the file cache and scans all protected system files immediately. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation.

• / Cache Size = x: Sets the file cache size to x megabytes (MB). Default cache size is 50 MB. This command requires that you restart the computer, and then run the command / purgecache to adjust the size of the cache on the disk. This command provides SfcQuota DWORD value of x in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

Can`t load cd/dvd`s in my laptop. Clicking on my computer and the drive is not there, any ideas?


This is caused by the upper and lower filter registry in Windows. I've created a link for you. You have to access this link to download the rmvfltr.exe file. Regardless of the laptop brand you have, follow this instruction/s: It will work.
  1. Access this link: http://tiny.cc/49KcC then it'll ask you to run or save. Download and save it to your desktop first. You'll have the RmvFltrs file on your desktop,


  2. For Windows XP, double-click the file RmvFltrs.exe on the Windows Desktop (select unzip) to start the installation program.

    For Windows Vista, right-click the RmvFltrs.exe file, and choose the "Run as Administrator" option. ** If a User Account Control dialog box displays the message, "An unidentified program wants access to your computer", click Allow. (Select unzip if it asks you to do so.)

  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.

  4. Restart the Computer.
    It should work after computer restarts.:)
