Next to your address bar you will see two buttons with stars on them, this is your favorite/history button. Click on the left star, and then select your new option -History. (This is assuming you are using Internet Explorer 7)

Hope this helps!

I couldnt sign in its shows I/O error how can i solve the problem

To resolve this problem, please make sure that you are using the latest version of Skype.
However, if the same error happens again, follow these steps:
  1. Quit Skype. If you can see the Skype icon in the taskbar (at the bottom right of your screen), right-click it and select Quit. If you cannot see the Skype icon, use Task Manager to close Skype: press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click Start Task Manager. In the Applications tab, select Skype and click End Task.
  2. Make sure that you can see hidden files.
    On Windows XP:
    1. In Windows Explorer, go to Tools > Folder Options.
    2. Click the View tab.
    3. Under Hidden files and folders, tick Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
    On Windows Vista / Windows 7:
    1. Click Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options.
    2. Click the View tab.
    3. Under Advanced settings, tick Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
  3. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the following folder:
    On Windows XP:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\\ApplicationData\Skype
    WindowsVista / Windows 7:
    • C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Skype
    Where is your Windows user name.
  4. Locate the folder with the same name as your Skype Name and delete it.
    This will delete your chat history. To save your chat history, copy all the .dbb files and the 'chatsync' folder to another location. You will be able to transfer them back (described in step 6, below). Please note that we cannot guarantee your entire chat history will be restored.
  5. Restart Skype and sign in with your Skype Name and password. If you forget your password, these instructions tell you what to do.
  6. The folder you have deleted will be recreated. If you saved your chat history files (described in step 4, above) transfer them back into the folder with the same name as your Skype name.
If you still have problems, please contact Skype Customer Service.

Ive just installed windows 7 on my pc and I wanted to know where to paste my old yahoo messenger conversations... I installed yahoo but I think its another version of it and I just cant find the Profile...

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete message history archive on your computer. You can copy it to the same location on another computer if you want to view it there. We've included instructions for Windows XP and Windows Vista users.
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows XP:
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

To locate your complete message history archive on Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit):
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows Vista or Windows 7 (64-bit):
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\
Warning: Copying your Profiles folder to another computer overwrites any existing message history archive on that computer and it is replaced by yours. That overwritten message history archive will be permanently eliminated by this process. (Workaround: Backup that message archive first to a storage medium such as a CD ROM.)

When clicking on the star, the history shows up but..

My Computer > C:\ (System Volume, Boot Volume, Windows) > The Documents and Settings folder > User Name Folder > Local Settings Folder > History.

If the Local Settings Folder is not visible in the UserName Folder you have to enable show hidden files:

While at the folder goto Menu at top Tools > Folder Options > View > Select the radio button for "Show Hidden Files"

If the user is using Firefox, then may have already selected not to save the browsing history, without advanced tools this information is not accessible.

If the user is using Internet Explorer, History will display unless they have selected to save the files for a period of "0" days, newer versions may even have the ability to not save at all.

Check the History folder to be certain.

Good luck.

It will be better if you print these instructions since you will need to type many commands later. I'm typing a detailed procedure to recover your windows.

It's possible that somehow your Windows registry is corrupted. But there is a backup. Only thing is you need to manually restore it.

Boot using your Windows XP cd in the drive and press enter when it asks to boot from CD (if it does not ask, then you will need to go to the CMOS setup by pressing DEL or F2 key and change the boot sequence)

Now, when booting from XP CD, it asks if you want to do a recovery, press R and you will get this screen:

Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console 

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality. 
Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer. 


Which Windows Installation would you like to log onto 
(To cancel, press ENTER)? 

Type 1 and press enter.

Now type the commands I am putting below, one by one per line and press enter after every line.

md c:\tmp

cd system32\config

copy system c:\tmp\system.bak 

copy software c:\tmp\software.bak

copy sam c:\tmp\sam.bak

copy security c:\tmp\security.bak

copy default c:\tmp\default.bak

del system software sam security default

Now, type these commands: (Take care to type the dot as it is)

copy c:\windows\repair\system .

copy c:\windows\repair\software .

copy c:\windows\repair\sam .

copy c:\windows\repair\security .

copy c:\windows\repair\default .

Now type exit and press enter and the system will reboot.

Remove the CD and boot normally in Windows (even if you get the grub menu)

If it boots in to windows, then do the following:

Start Windows Explorer. 

On the Tools menu, click Folder options. 

Click the View tab. 

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box. 

Click Yes when the dialog box is displayed that confirms that you want to display these files. 

Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to get a list of the folders. It's important to click the correct drive. 

Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder. 

This folder contains one or more _restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".

Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RP x under this folder. These are restore points. 

Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder; the following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: 

C:System Volume Information_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}RP1Snapshot 

From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\tmp folder with the mouse: 

Now, once again put your XP CD in to your CD Drive and reboot using the CD. Again press R for the recovery console.

At the console, type these commands one by one per line and press enter after every command:

cd system32\config

del sam security software default system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_software system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_system system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_sam sam

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_security security 

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_user_.default default 

Now type exit and remove the CD. Boot normally in Windows and you must be back to normal.

Folder named as recycler and system volume information are appearing how to delete those

You should not delete this folders in any circumstances, as those are system folders used by your operating system.

They are also hidden folders, so if you want to get rid of them, you will have to make Windows to not display hidden folders.
Go to Tools -> Folder Options in Windows Explorer, open View page and check Do not show hidden files and folders.

Windows Restore only displays one restore date; history is gone.

Restores are only recorded when a system change is made or you manually set one. Since panda is a program and not a system change it will not set a restore date. Uninstall panda. Go to c:\program files and delete Panda Software folder. In Vista go to C:\Users\<user>\AppData\ (where user is your user account) and delete all folders related to panda. In XP that same folder will be C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data
