Missing bdfdll.sys


Hi! Welcome to FixYA!
File bdfdll.sys is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files". Known file sizes on Windows XP are 8,704 bytes (61% of all occurrence), 7,808 bytes. However, some malware camouflage themselves as bdfdll.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder.So I suggest you run a full scan.If that doesn't work , you may try doing a system retore to bring the computer back in time when the issue is not yet present. For Windows XP:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click to select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option, and then click Next.
3. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5. Log on to the computer as an Administrator. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.

For Vista or 7:
1. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:
2. Then please follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps.

Installing a web cam creactive


Hello,
  • 1)Insert the software and drivers disk into your CD/DVD drive. If an auto play window pops open, select the "Install" option. This will begin the installation wizard automatically. If the auto play option doesn't start, go on to Step 2.

    2) Double-click on the computer icon on your desktop or navigate to "My Computer" by opening up the Start menu and selecting "My Computer." A window will pop open. Right-click on the drive were the disc is located, for example DVD Drive (F:). Select the "Install" option to start the installation wizard.

  • 3)Plug your webcam into the desired USB port. If you have not installed the drivers, the device driver wizard will begin searching for the drivers on its own. Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 utilize the plug-and-play option and will automatically find the drivers for you. However, it is recommended to install the drivers from the disc or from the Creative Labs website.

All of the programs in the start menu are showing empty. I can find them with a search and run them, but some shortcuts are gone.


Check this link to check the settings of your start menu. http://www.coolnerds.com/XP/StartMenu/xpStartMenu.htm. It might be that it is not properly set that is why you dont see those options on your start menu. Hope this would help. Thanks.

Download Hiren Boot cd from http://www.torrentzap.com/torrent/622163/! (9Down.COM) Hiren's BootCD v10.0
Instruction on how to use it...
  • The disk is downloaded as an ISO file. The ISO files can be burned using software programs such as Nero. Burn the disk to a DVD instead of a CD by using a program such as IMGBurn.

  • Booting
  • Once the disk is burned, place it on a DVD or CD drive on the computer and restart the computer. After the computer displays its default first screen, the disk will scan and load the Hiren's Boot menu. The menu gives users three options. The options are to start the computer normally, load Mini Windows XP or load the disk. Choose the disk-loading option to work within the disk parameters and run in DOS. DOS is a simplified process that uses only text. The CD provides shortcuts to each utility.

  • Mini Windows XP
  • To clear a virus and use a large collection of Hiren's Boot tools, choose the Mini Windows XP option. A simple version of Windows XP will load on the computer. It might take a few minutes to load everything because it processes files directly from the CD. Once it has loaded, wait for the Hiren's Boot disk menu to pop up. Select the "Menu" option and scroll through the programs. The disk features Windows password hackers, registry cleaners and a large collection of antivirus software.

  • Antivirus
  • A main portion of the disk feature antivirus software. Spybot-Search and Destroy scans a computer for the most likely spyware and removes it. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware finds root kit viruses and Trojans that could affect computers and spread through networks. Super Antispyware is an all-in-one scanner that detects and eliminates all types of viruses. Run one scan at a time. Do multiple scans because one program might find a virus that another program misses.

    When I start my computer and it comes to users account I try to put in my password but it says not the right password I wrote it down but it seems not to be working is there a way around this so I can make...


    Hello.

    When you created that password, you should have had a security question answered that would help you remember what the password is exactly. Even though you wrote it, remember that it is case sensitive. So if your password was

    SystemShock2 it won't respond to systemshock2 or SYSTEMSHOCK2, or anything that isn't exactly as it was written.

    If you cannot get in, reboot and keep pressing F8 until you get the safe mode options. Log on as Administrator and change the user account password, or remove it entirely.

    Hi,

    Do you have a memory card reader or a memory card slot on your laptop or Desktop PC? If so, remove the memory card on your camera and then hook it to the slot on your computer.

    It should be detected and then you can copy your files from the card to the computer.

    If you still have problems, please post back.
