try this program ...it moves and delete files that are protected at boot...so ...probably after the install a feature will appear on right click pop up ...kinda like the one that allow you to scan a file by right clicking and selecting anti virus run ...I had an earlier version on my pc ...and always worked just fine ...Im not sure about this file cause it appears to be a system file ...but from what I read about this program seams that it doesnt has any problem with any kinda files... so :
install
reboot
select the file / right clic select delete on boot ..
after the ok ...it will be deleted on next boot ...

As you turn on the laptop, keep pressing F8 and in the boot menu choose safe mode. After you get into safe mode go ahead and delete the file that way, once you do go ahead and reboot the system back into windows and the file should be gone.

My emachine isn't starting up after hybernation, unless i press the power button and reboot. Why is this?


Hi there,
When your system goes to hybernation it creates a file on the root drive called hyberfil.sys in most instances this file gets corrupted and is causing the computer not to wake up from hybernation.
You would have to try and delete this file so that it will re enable the normal hybernation wake of your computer, here's how to do it:
http://helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7/windows-7-delete-hibernation-file-hiberfil-sys/
Just have to reverse the process to re-enable hybernation.
My recommendation would be to just disable Hybernation and just let the computer go to sleep if you're going to leave it idle.
Hope this helps!

What would make an hp laptop w/windows vista not turn on ,even tho its fully charged


So many things. Does it turn on at all or it just won't boot into Windows? If it doesn't turn on at all, remove the battery and run straight from the power cord. Make sure you are getting power to the computer.If you are getting power and the system turns on, but won't boot into Windows, trying booting into safe mode or using a recovery disk to start at a command shell. Remove the hiberfil.sys file and try to restart. The hiberfil.sys is a hidden system file so you'll need to use the following commands;
attrib -r -s -a -h hiberfil.sys
del hiberfil.sys

Try that. I just fixed a laptop last week and I had to delete the hibernation file in order to get the laptop to boot.

No absolutely not. This is happen when you delete your some system files on C: drive. It doesn't crash at once, But when you reboot. So don't ever delete your sys files. Now you can do is repair windows using the XP sp3 CD. Or replacing sys files using another OS.

My laptop was on hibernation. now it is not booting. please help


Hibernation is enabled by default in Windows Vista, and is one of the seven options (i.e. Hibernate) that appears on the Vista shutdown menu. Hibernate your Vista system will enable you to quickly restore to existing system state and intact workspace instead of start afresh, run programs and open your documents one by one again. If you do not use the hibernate feature in Vista, and want to delete hiberfil.sys and then recover the space occupied by the big hibernation storage file, the hibernation function can be turned off and disabled.
Unlike Windows XP, users cannot turn the hibernation on or off via Vista GUI interface anymore. Previously users can enable or disable hibernation via Power Options applet in Control Panel. This option no longer available in Windows Vista, which also enables Hibernate ability and creates hiberfil.sys by default. Instead, users have to rely on command line utility Powercf and Disk Cleanup Wizard to disable hibernation in Vista. Microsoft KB920730 provides details on how to disable and turn off hibernation on computer running Vista system. You must log on to Vista with user account in Administrators group to perform these action.


Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt or Cmd, and then click Run as Administrator on the pop up contextual menu.
If you are prompted by User Account Control for permission, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: 

powercfg.exe -h off
Type exit, and then press ENTER.

Another easier workaround for those who’re not comfortable to work with command line is to disable hibernation and hybrid sleep feature in Windows Vista is by using Disk Cleanup wizard tool, the built-in Windows disk cleaner to delete hiberfil.sys file. The hibernation file must be enabled to access the hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature in Windows Vista.
Click Start button, then go to All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and run Disk Cleanup.
Choose which files to clean up, either My files only or Files from all users on this computer is fine. 


On “Drive Selection”, select the Windows Vista boot drive to clean up. Note that you must select the drive where Vista is installed, which normally is also the boot drive (C:) as hiberfil.sys file will be located on the root folder of it. 


Once Disk Cleanup finishes scanning the system, Disk Cleanup for Vista window will open.
Select and tick the check box next to the Hibernation File Cleaner. 



You can select or deselect other type files to clean or preserve from the available items or options in the list provided.
Click OK button when done.
Hibernation will now be removed and disabled.

It will solve your problem.

DELETED MY SYSTEM FILE FROM C DRIVE


hi !

if you know how to slave your Hard Disk, try to slave it on other PC with the same windows OS you have. Then the file that you accidentally deleted to your Hard disk, OR you may clone all the System file in the Windows folder " C:\ WINDOWS ". in that way your OS will run back to it's normal process.
