It seems you have a virus. Run your anti-virus and anti spyware
if still dont find anything wrong, go to start, run, Msconfig, then go to start up, disable anything recently added or all, then go to services, click hide microsoft services.. then disable all.. then go to the Boot.ini and click safe boot/with network restart your computer in safemode.. see if the applications run... They do then restart comp and get out of safe mode ..
Start all you known services..(anti-virus, anti0spyware) and see which one is actually preventing it.

if that also fails you might need to reinstall your os by formatting your drive.
In order to backup your important data, you`ll need do the following.

Take out your hard drive and install it as a slave drive in another computer (possibly a friends if you don`t have access to another system), then backup your data and replace the drive into your system. Reformat and reinstall from scratch.

Hope this information helps you
Thank you

Hi, if its a windows password there is a simple application to do it called active@password changer just google the application, you can run it from another user account on the same computer or create a bootable usb or cd to remove the password
i suggest it worth buying it from the as it is a great tool and deserves user support, if you are unable to buy it you could always get a copy from torrent site but if you can afford to support it then please do

this programme removed the password and allow full access to the user account ,

Unable to locate ereader application for google android 2.2.

Open up the "Market" on your android. When the market opens fully, you can select the spyglass icon to search for applications. In here, run a search for the kindle; by running this search, it will come up with all e-reader applications both for free and those you need to pay for.

I downloaded g talk and orkut in my n8 mobile.but the file application shows,that file not suportimg.please help to solve the problem and help how i can use g talk and orkut in mobile.i tried google chrome...

It seems you are installing the PC version Gtalk on your Nokia N8 mobile. If I guess right, that will never work and will never be able to install. You nokia N8 will only support Java based application. You can download the Java version gtalk here (Click Here). Let me also tell you one more thing, if you are gonna use gtalk for IMs and chatting, I would recommend another application which is much better than Gtalk for chatting. It's Nimbuzz with which you can sign to many chatting services including Gtalk, facebook, yahoo, etc.. If you wish, you can download it here (Click here), open the link and click the "Ready to download".. just below the Youtube video screen.

First, download them to your computer and transfer them to your mobile and install. I hope you know how to do that since you've already tried.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Does android fully related with java??????????

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
If you are asking that the Java JRE is compatible with the android environment then this is an open question, Android is far more powerful than Java. Although Android will ship with a set of core applications including an email client, SMS program, calendar, maps, browser, contacts, and others. All applications are written using the Java programming language.
Android apps are also programmed in Java, there is also a news about Mobile software company Myriad Group announced J2Android, which will make it possible for Java-based mobile applications to run on Android-based phones.
The J2Android tool converts existing Java applications, including games, to run on Dalvik, which is the virtual machine used on all Android devices.

If this was what you were asking about, Thank you for using FixYa!, Keep visiting..

What Operating System are you using? you might have downloaded the wrong version or an antivirus setting might be blocking the application from running. try disabling it first then run the GT again.

What is google android?

Hi friend,

Android is an open mobile phone platform that was developed by Google and, later, by the Open Handset Alliance. Google defines Android as a "software stack" for mobile phones.
So, what's a software stack? It's made up of the operating system (the platform on which everything runs), the middleware (the programming that allows applications to talk to a network and to one another), and the applications (the actual programs that the phones will run). In short, the Android software stack is all the software that will make an Android phone an Android phone.
Android is based on the Linux operating system, and all of its applications will be written using Java. Google says Android will "ship with a set of core applications including an email client, SMS program, calendar, maps, browser, contacts," and more.
Anyone can download an Android software development kit from Google and write an application for Android.

Please rate me......

Gtalk Connection Error

Check your internet connection active or not. If it is active, then do the necessary settings in your GTalk application allowing your application to connect.

N95 8GB.Problem in connecting the phone through USB cable

I suspect the message you're receiving is:

"Unable to Activate Data Transfer Mode. Mass memory is in use by another application."

It's likely that several applications are running in the background of your phone. I believe the N95 runs on the Symbion OS. I'm not sure how to walk you through pulling up a task manager application to manually close the running applications, but the simple answer to this problems is for you to turn your phone completely off and turn it back on again. This should close all the applications that were running in the backgound.

Hope this helps.
