The circle with the line in the middle means that the operation is not allowed. It sounds like the computer doesn't think you have permission to do it.
Go to you utilities folder, and run "Disk Utility". Select your hard drive and then click "Repair Disk Permissions".

Control Panel freezes when any app is clicked


It could be caused by a corrupted third-party entry, try this:
Create a folder, say, TempCPL in My Documents. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to \Windows\System32 and display the files as Details. Click View > Arrange by Type and look for files with .cpl as the extension. You may have to Show Extensions in Folder Options > View Tab to see them.
Check from their Properties which are not Microsoft. Move the non-Microsoft .cpl files one by one to the new folder and open Control Panel after each move to see if the problem has gone. After detecting the culprit, leave it in the TempCPL folder and move back the other .cpl files. If the problem is not a non-Microsoft file, repeat the procedure for the Windows .cpl files. There are copies of the Windows files in C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386.

Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

I installed photoshop 7.0 on my pc.when i tried to start it the error comes "could complete your request because of missing or invalid personalisation"


Errors such as this could happen when an older version or BETA (testing) version of Photoshop CS has already been installed on the computer, or when your registration information file does not get written properly or is corrupted. When there exists multiple copies of Photoshop in the Applications folder, your system and Photoshop may get confused and encounter conflict with which files it should use to verify personalization. The same case could happen if there is a BETA version of Photoshop currently or previously installed on your computer. This conflict can lead to personalization errors when launching the application.
The Photoshop CS installer personalizes the Photoshop CS application within the Applications folder alphabetically. If multiple instances of the Photoshop CS folder are present, only the first one alphabetically will be personalized. New installations of Photoshop CS (which folder falls alphabetically after the first installation) will not be personalized.
A damaged or incorrectly written personalization file (userreg or ps.sif) can also cause Photoshop to return a personalization error when you start it. Some troubleshooting steps which I recommend are as follows:
Solution 1: Uninstall and then re-install most recent version of Photoshop.
If Photoshop's serial number is not displayed on the bottom of Photoshop CS's sg Photoshop, you may have another version of Photoshop CS on the computer. Uninstall the copy of Photoshop and reinstall it. It is especially important to remove any beta copies of Photoshop you may have.
How to remove and uninstall Photoshop: 1. Move any personal files from the Adobe Photoshop CS folder(s) on the hard disk to another location. 2. Uninstall Photoshop from the control panel 2. Delete all Adobe Photoshop CS folder(s) in the Applications folder if there are any. 3. Drag the Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash. 4. Insert the Photoshop CD-ROM, double-click the installer file in the Photoshop folder on the CD-ROM, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

Solution 2: If the reinstallation did not work, download the Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool at http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
Just follow the instructions on the same page mentioned. This will help you clean out all the files of Photoshop that was installed to your system, as well as the registries that may also cause conflicts.
Solution 3: Use the ImageReady personalization file.
If Photoshop's serial number is displayed on the splash screen, or you performed the solutions referred to above, the cause of the errors is a personalization file that is not written correctly or is damaged. If you can successfully open ImageReady, you can use ImageReady's personalization file for Photoshop.
To Use the ImageReady personalization file: 1. Ctrl+click the Adobe Photoshop CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 2. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder. 3. Locate the USERREG file in the Resources folder, and drag it to the desktop. Keep the Resources folder open. 4. Ctrl+click the Adobe ImageReady CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 5. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder. 6. Locate the USERREG file in the ImageReady Resources folder, and copy it to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder. 7. Close all open folders, and restart Photoshop. Restart ImageReady to make sure that the USERREG file was copied, not moved, to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder.
Solution 4: Replace the Photoshop .sif file.
If Photoshop does not open without error, also replace the .sif file: 1. Ctrl+click the Adobe Photoshop CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 2. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder and the ASN folder in the Resources folder. 3. Locate the PS.SIF file in the ASN folder, and drag it to the desktop. Keep the ASN folder open. 4. Ctrl+click the Adobe ImageReady CS application file in Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS and choose Show Package Contents. 5. Open the Contents folder, and then open the Resources folder and the ASN folder in the Resources folder. 6. Locate the PS.SIF file in the ASN folder, and copy it to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder. 7. Close all open folders, and restart Photoshop. Also restart ImageReady to make sure the PS.SIF file was copied, not moved to the Photoshop Package's Contents/Resource folder. 8. In setup editor, under components, expand the Typelibrary.tlb component. Expand advertising and remove all entries under it. (should be only one.) Compile and install.

3.Use the arrow keys to move up to Safe Mode and press Enter .

4.Press Enter on Microsoft Windows Whistler Personal or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition .

6.A window will appear to prompt for confirmation to keep operating in Safe Mode .

7.Click Yes .

8.Click Start and My Computer . Then, double-click the main hard drive ( C: ) and Documents and Settings .

9.Right-click the folder name of the user account and click Properties . (This is the folder you found and wrote down before starting this process)

10.Click Security .

11.Click Advanced . On the Owner tab,(third tab over) click the checkbox to select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects option.

12. Click Apply .

13.Click Yes to the security message.

click START

click MY COMPUTER

Double click the main hard drive (C:)

click DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS

--from here go to any user that does not contain adminstrator, or all users in the file name

(if you don't find the folder your looking for exit out of that user and choose another until you find the Folder)

--once you open each user

click DESKTOP

--look through the desktop folder, your looking for the folder BINGO open that and you should see the folder FOUND IT, this is the user that you want to copy all your lost files from the old user to.

--Wirte down this user name

Exit back to the DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS folder

--- at this point you should see all the users folders again, however when you click on the user folder you used the process on (the first folder you have written down) that folder will now open.

--From here you need to move your files back from (the first folder you have written down) to your currently operating user name (the second folder you have wirtten down)

--you should see all of your desktop, my music, my pics, my movies, (in the first folder you have written down) however until you move these files from the old user to your current user the computer will not always find them in your basic progams(ie.--windows movie maker, media player, ext.)

--with some of the folders it may be easier to move them first to a desktop folder and then reorganise them from there.

This should work you will get your lost docs. back however you may still need to reinstall some progams that you lost. Moving your files back to your new user can be another interesting issue, however you should for now have all your lost info recovered. Feel free to e-mail me or post any questions or if you need more help.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
