On Microsoft Windows XP Professional I'm Trying To Make A Compressed Zipped Folder I Right Clicked A File Clicked Send To And Clicked Compressed Zipped Folder And It Just Made A Win RAR Zip File

Win RAR *is* a compressed Zip file. The folder itself can't be compressed only the contents. So, just create a folder using any name you want to use such as *my rar zip* and drag the compressed winrar file into it.

Folders and files missing from My Documents

Hi, assuming you use WIn XP, I suggest the following: Log in as Administrator, browse to this folder : c:\documents and settings\ , you will find folders, one of them is made according to your user name -- now open that, there you will find a "My documents" folder -- now dig that folder and you will get you files. If not that folder!! then , right click on the "c:\documents and settings\" folder - then properties and see the size, from the folder size you can guess your files are where. And the size is very low and your my documents folder was not mapped to any other external storage then manually search you files.
This problem happenz when user profile get corrupted.

Hi - on log on my computer is unable to open my user account and opens a temporary account instead. It gives the message 'attempting to restore a file in the registry but the specified file is not in...

If you can access your computer with a temporary user account, you can simply replace the "hal.dll". You can find this file in all windows computers (win xp to win 7), simply copy the file from another computer save it on a flash drive and paste it in the folder C: > Windows > System 32 and paste it. The steps are as follows, open "My Computer", double click "C:" drive, again open "Windows" folder and then again open "System32" folder and paste the file there. Restart your computer and it'll work fine.

Or you can download the "hal.dll" file here. (I've uploaded it for you). Open the link and click "Download Now", wait for 20 seconds and again click "Download File Now" link (purple link).

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Forgot administrator's password

Hi Reggie,

Please read the entire article before proceeding:

All administrator accounts are created equal, with equal
powers, except that the main adiminstrator account cannot
be deleted and it does not appear on the login (or users)
menu by default.

You do need an alternate administrator account to solve this
problem. You must login to a user account with administrative
privileges in order to access system resources, take ownership
of files and folders, and to change other people's passwords.
(including the built-in administrator account)

Otherwise, what would be the point of any security at all,
if you could bypass it at will.

If you can login to another account with administrator pri'vs,
then follow me. Otherwise you may have to pursue more difficult
options, as explained later.

1) Open up the control panel
2) Open up Administrative tools
3) Open up local security settings
4) Expand Local policies in the LHS folder tree

Accounts: Administrator Account Status = Enabled
Accounts: Rename Administrator Account = Administrator

this is to make sure that the admin account is enabled,
and has not been renamed. You can double click on these
settings to change them. Is you are for some reason unable
to enable the admin account, you must reboot to safe mode,
where the admin account is always enabled.

Now that you are sure that you have a functioning administrator
account, you must reset the password, since you cannot
retrieve it:

From the control panel, once again open up

Administrative Tools ---->
Computer Management --->
Local users and Groups ---->
Users ----->
Administrator ---->
Right click on administrator ---->


This should do it.

The administrator account will be re-created, you will loose
1) All settings and preferences
2) Access to any NTFS encrypted files the administrator
has encrypted.
3) Stored network and internet passwords (the administrator's)
4) Personal security certificates.

This procedure is different from simply changing the password,
because you don't know the original, so Windows treats it as a
hostile takeover, That's why you loose access to encrypted files.

If you have trouble starting the computer management Applet,
Run it manually:

START --> RUN --> compmgmt.msc


...\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe compmgmt.msc



If you do not have access to an existing account
with administrative privileges, you may be able to hack in
with and old setup disk from Windows 2000, with
no service packs, or at most XP1

The reason is that Windows 2000 did not anticipate nor
respect Windows XP security.

1) Reboot from the 2000 disk, and follow the on screen
prompts to repair the system using the


2) Do not proceed to install Win 2000, make sure you
get out before it asks you to format a disk, if you get
there you missed the prompt and you have gone too far,
Reboot and try again.

3) Once you are in the recovery console = DOS like environment
type HELP, and it will give you a list of commands.

You should be able to create a new user account
(with admin or change the admin password privs)

4) The last alternative is to purchase an XP password recovery
utility, which you run from a boot CD.

Good luck

S/w question

There are softwares that can be downloaded in order to put password and encryption policies for public folders.

Are these the admin level folders? If they are, then you can simply make your folders private so other people won't be able to see them.

Hidden files


When you open the window "My Computer" you need to open the "Folder options". under "Folder Options" you have three tabs, you need to click on the "View" tab.
Under "View" tab you have an option as "Hidden files and folders", you may select the option according to your choice over there.

Note : - In win XP the "Folder options" are present under the "Tools" tab, however it might be under the "View" tab in the "my computer" in win 98. I don't have a Win 98 handy to check that. i am sure you would be able to find that out. Once you have the "Folder options" the steps are same as mentioned above.

Hope that resolves your issue. Will wait for tee rating.
