Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Windows cannot access specified device, path, or file... app perm

I have a dell optiplex gx60 and i am running windows xp pro. i use the wireless client zyxel g-220 v2 wireless adapter; yet whenever i try to open zyxel i receive a message saying: windows cannot access specified device, path, or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the file. Not only does that happen when i access zyxel, but when i access the control panel or other things all icons on my desktop goes blank and i have to do a system restore in order to fix that. also when i do the system restore and fix it i still have to be careful not to make the same mistakes !

Sounds to be a bug in the system

ensure the program is working, goto system restore and turn it off
turn back on again, this will remove all the old ones, they could have the bug in them,

create a restore point now, then download "combofix.exe"
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

run this

it gives a report when finished, the top section shows deletions, this is the stuff it found

Hi Rose, I'm Fred, and I am a Dell tech. :).
External drives are tricky because the computer may not be able to access them to boot from. Your best option is search for a replacement to the optical (cdrom) drive. Since you are buying one, try to get a dvd burner or dvd reader or cdrom burner. They are usually only a few dollars more, and come in handy down the road. Now, if you cannot get this computer repaired for less than 70 bucks, scrap it. the gx60 is a high-end pentium 3, and not worth much additional money. You can purchase a perfectly good used dell pentium 4 from gearxs for about 80 bucks, with windows XP, and all the basics installed, shipped to your house. the gx60 is not worth a heavy investment, unless you just happen to have the parts and the time.
