Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Midnight Blue

1 Answer

My hard dirve filled up over night without my help

Someone told me that I should try to download a program to help me with a problem that I posted earlier intitled Vista won't let things disapear. I went to that website that he gave me the link to. they said that the c cleaner would clean my history. Does it mean that it will always erase it? Does anyone have it/like it? Also, I don't know if you could help me, but all of a sudden my hard drive went from 1/3 to 15/16 full, and I didn't download anything! I downloaded quicktime a few days ago, but I don't think that my hard drive changed until today, and it keeps changing. sometimes it says it has 8.03 GB free sometimes it has 6.23 GB free.

    I downloaded ccleaner, after I clicked analyzed I clicked run cleaner, I said that it would permanently delete some of my files, what files will it delete? Also I already have Norton antivirus, so I think I'm covered on that end. Thank you.

    Thank you, I ran ccleaner, but my hardrive is still almost full. I went to the websites that you gave me, but it's all greek to me :(

    Thank you Soooooooo much!!!! I downloaded it, and ran the program. It turns out that it had something to do with Realplayer, I deleted whatever the file was. I havn't tried to use Realplayer yet, but I really don't care all that much if it doesn't work. The file I delete was 185 GB! Now I have room on my hard drive again, thanks to you !

YES, I would definitely suggest ccleaner! I use it everyday. Run the junk files clean-up, and see if your harddrive-filling issue changes... also download a spyware program, I recommend Anti-vir, it now has spyware protection AND virus protection, for free... http://www.free-av.com/en/products/1/avira_antivir_personal__free_antivirus.html

If your harddrive issue continues, use this:

http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?groupname=windirstat&
filename=windirstat1_1_2_setup.exe&use_mirror=superb-east

or

http://windirstat.info/ if that didnt work and scroll to the "all flavors of windows" link.

It will allow you to visualize whats taking up your harddrive space, and select what is, and fix it.

Hope this helps!! :)

    I completely understand your fear of files being deleted, om every computer I help a friend clean they are always paranoid of which files this deletes.

    Rest assured, however, it will only delete temporary files, web cache, and other hidden temporary files. Don't worry, it won't delete anything of importance to you, unless stashed unused temp files mean anything to you :)

    Ok, well i'm pretty determined to help you out, and I have no idea why that would be greek to you...

    It sounds like you DEFINITELY need this program, this is the direct link to the download, it should pop up when you paste it into your browser, save it and install it.

    http://sourceforge.net/project/downloadi...
    filename=windirstat1_1_2_setup.exe&use_mirror=superb-east

    After you install it, run it and it should be pretty self explanatory, asks you what drive you want to view, etc. Then it will show visually what exactly is taking up your harddrive space.

    If you have any other questions, just ask!

Download error


Cloud installer?

So these programs are being reinstalled from a cloud, and using an installer?

I would download the program, and install it myself; without the cloud installer.

This, of course, if it is feasible to proceed in this manner.

What are the programs in question, if I may ask?
Also, is your anti-virus program interfering with the installer?

Post back in a Comment.

Don't know how to program it


First you must instal the Twain driver for your scanner. You didn't mention what kind of scanner, ut the best thing to do is go to the scanner's web site and download the latest dirve for it for your operating system (OS) Once that is downloaded, you install it to your computer. Next you need a graphic/photo program. With the program you can set up the scanner to scan right into the program, do any editing ans then save the file. Simple as falling off a log once you learn how to fall without hurting yourself (joke). Need more help contact us at FixYa. best of luck.

I legally purchased elements 5.0 at a local Sam's Club just shy of two years ago. I didn't register at that time,because I didn't realize the urgency of it. Our hard drive crashed and we lost everything!!!...


If you had the details on the old hard drive, then they are gone, what happened to the old hard drive? a data recovery professional might be able to get the details out of it but it might cost more than the new version.

Scanjet G4000 Since replacing my hard-drive can't get unit identified to function. Told unit not connected. Tried to remove program but failed ( Was told that solution to problem was to remove program then...


Try just reinstalling without uninstalling first. Sounds like when you replaced your hard drive, that you did not reinstall the driver for the scanjet. The installation disk will have the driver for the device.

USB not woking


Hi,

Based on your post/description, your USB drive is faulty. You can try salvage/repair it but chances are all data/information would be lost. If Windows can't do anything try using HP's USB FlashDrive Utility. File name "cp006049.exe."  Do a Google, download, install and execute.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
