Windows run doesn't keep my work history


you have to physically save any work
save the history to a usb drive in case you have computer failure

Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


hope this helps

You don't mention what version of Windows you are running, so I am going to presume Vista or Windows 7 since you are getting that specific error. The best way to fix this is to use the built in System Restore function, but going through the All Programs menu may not work for you. With that in mind try to access it this way and it should work.

1. Click on Start > Help and Support.
2. Click the little blue book Icon on the upper right side to Browse Help. This will load the Contents screen.
3. Click on Maintenance and performance.
4. Click on Backing up and Restoring.
5. Click on What is System Restore
6. Click the link to Start System Restore. This should open the restore wizard successfully for you.

Follow the screen instructions and restore back to a time before this problem occurred.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to change window xp to vista???


he differences between Windows Vista and Windows XP are the start menu,the icon and screensaver. Therefore, you have to change the appearanceof these features.

After the transition, you can only find afew differences. Here is the list of software that you need. Click tofollow the link of each software.

Vista Start Menu

Vista Screensaver Ported to XP

Folder Icon Changer


After downloading, you can start with your changing process. There are three steps:

Step1: At first, download and install Vista Start Menu. It is only about1MB. Besides changing your start menu to Vista style, this softwarehelps to set up hotkeys for shut down and restart. You can also changethe font size in start menu.

Step 2: Now, download VistaScreensaver zipped folder. In Windows Vista, there are four differentscreensaver styles: Aurora, Bubbles, Mystify and Ribbons. To use thesescreensavers, you have to unzip the downloaded folder (file type is.scr) to C:WindowsSystem32 in your Window XP system. Right click onyour desktop and choose "Properties". Choose "Screensaver" tab. Pickyour Vista screensaver and click OK. You can also check file *.txtenclosed in the zipped folder to know how to make your screensaver workas you want.

Accessing SR on Vista


I moved back to XP a while a go, if you type "restore" into the start menu search box it will come up with system restore within the results. 
I think its also hidden somewhere in the start menu - programs ...

Just did a fast google search on that, here's what I got

  1. Close and save any documents that you may have open. 

  2. Click on the Start button to open your Start Menu. 

  3. When the Start Menu opens click on the All Programs menu option.

  4. Click once on the Accessories Start Menu group.

  5. Click once on the System Tools Start Menu group.

  6. Click once on the System Restore icon. After you click on the icon, if a User Account Control window opens you should click on the Continue button.

I'm not really following the hardware scene much, first time I heard of the new i7, the i7 920 is the only one of the series I might consider buying at its current price, looking at some reviews it seems to out perform all that amd has to offer, I might go intel when I upgrade next time.
Thanks for the update.
