Show hidden files


to unhide file extensions to see what you have in XP open my computer (or windows explorer) Tools/Folder Options/View change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

to unhide file extensions in win7, vista go to my computer (or windows explorer) Organize/folder and search options/view change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

In win8 I'm not sure how to get to it unless you change to show classic view somehow

Sharing Your Own Computer's Stuff with the Network


To share a file or folder with your fellow computer users, move the file into your Shared Documents folder, which lives in your My Computer window. (You must move or copy a file into the Shared Documents folder; shortcuts don't always work.)

After you place your file or folder into your Shared Documents folder, it appears in the Shared Documents folder of everybody else using your computer.

Administrators can share folders without having to move them into the Shared Documents folder. The trick is to follow these steps:

1. Right-click on a folder you'd like to share and choose Sharing and Security from the pop-up menu.

Open My Computer and right-click on the folder you'd like to share. When the menu appears, select Sharing and Security. A window appears, showing the Properties for that folder. It opens to the Sharing tab.

Right-click on a folder and choose Sharing and Security to share the folder on the network.

2. Click the box marked Share This Folder on the Network.

A check mark in that box lets everybody peek at, grab, steal, change, or delete any of the files in that folder. To let visitors look inside the files but not change them, remove the check mark from the box marked Allow Network Users to Change My Files.

3. Click OK.

Now that particular folder and all its contents are available for everybody on the network to share.

Sharing a lot of folders isn't a good idea because it gives network visitors too much control over your computer. Even if you trust people, they might accidentally mess something up. To be safe, only share files by placing them in the Shared Document folder.

Inside Shared Documents live two more folders, Shared Music and Shared Pictures. Those two folders are also available to any user. So, if you want to share documents with any user of your computer, store them in the Shared Documents folder. When you make MP3s from your CDs, store them in the Shared Music folder, too, so that everybody can enjoy them.

I have lg dvd r/w in my P3 System but I am facing three problems. 1) Dvd is not playing the movies normally, that is movie is coming in a breaking manner. 2) whenever I am trying to do something to that...


It sounds to me like your computer system is not up to the task of watching DVD movies. It is a P3 and as your computer plays movies in a breaking manner it shows that the graphics performance is very low. In fact the overall system performance in very low.

The solution is to save up for a faster PC that you can afford, It doesn't need to be new it can be second hand, it must just be able to do what you require it to do.

A cheaper solution is to find and install a compatable Graphics Card for your computer, this will increase the overall performance of your computer.

I am deeply sorry for this sad information.
Wishing you all the best!

Powerbook G4 wont start up, shows a file folder with a ? mark....


The hard drive is probably on it's way out. You can get and run Disk Warrior and you could repair permissions and such but the hard drive is probably on it's way to the grave.

A couple things though. It isn't enough to just put the disk in, you need to hold down "c" while the computer starts for it to try to run off your disk. You can then try to repair permissions and fix the disk from the installation program that starts. When the Install OS X screen comes up (looks like a desktop but with the big dialog box in the middle) click on Utilities at the top and then on Disk Utility. HERE IS APPLE'S SITE for you to read about how to try to repair your disk. I've found that this sometimes works and may help it work enough for you to get your files off, but may not.

Another method would be to get another Mac, and hook the two together with a firewire to transfer your files, then reinstall OS X in your ailing computer. Go HERE to read about this technique.

Your Hard Drive is not booting correctly and most likely it is damaged. There are chances however that the data is OK, but will definitely need to be taken out to fix it. The best thing is to get a new HD for your Mac and start all over with installing the OS. That is if all the other parts are OK.

Computer won't work & shows a file icon w/a"? and a smiley face"


the "?" and the "smiley apple face means it couldnt find the osx to boot from. this can be cause by a bad or deleted file or a failing / bad harddrive. it sounds like a bad harddrive since it doesnt find the destination.

Smiley's


I found where they are located!!!! YES!!!!

In Vista do this:

First, make hidden folders visible:
- Click the MS 'start' Icon in bottom left
- Click Computer
- Click Organize
- Click Folder and Search Options
- Click View tab
- Click the radio button next to "Show hidden files and folders"

Second, navigate to this directory (if you don't do #1, you can't do this because the AppData folder is hidden):
C:\Users\[YourUserName]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Media

3. Delete the directory "Smileys" inside there.

They are gone!
