Drive Image 7

Somthing changed on my computer that is not in the registry since going back to later times does not change anything. I am getting V21 Proctor Managment Console error problem and needs to close. I was getting RTC failure errors until I read on Synmantics website to delete a Reg key to solve this problem, but now I get this error.

What has changes on my computer that does not invole the Registry?

    This is not a norton virus scanner problem, it is a drive Image software problem using the V21 Proctor Managment Console.

    Drive Image copies hard drives and makes backups.

    Also, I already uninstalled Drive Image and re-installed the software but has the same error.

    Any one know what can be changed on Windows XP -SP2 that will give this error with out it involving the registry?

Windows xp C drive partition is not used. An drive H: drive was created for operating system files. How can you change this back to the C: drive?

if you changed the drive letter ,there will not boot up the windows therefore need to boot .ini also.

run hiran boot cd , boot the pc change the drive letters .also
edit boot.ini in hiran or plugged to another pc and run there os.

Change the System/Boot Drive Letter
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
1.Make a full system backup of the computer and system state.
2.Log on as an Administrator.
3.Start Regedt32.exe.
4.Go to the following registry key:
5.Click MountedDevices.
6.On the Security menu, click Permissions.
7.Verify that Administrators have full control. Change this back when you are finished with these steps.
8.Quit Regedt32.exe, and then start Regedit.exe.
9.Locate the following registry key:
10.Find the drive letter you want to change to (new). Look for "\DosDevices\C:".
11.Right-click \DosDevices\C:, and then click Rename.

Note You must use Regedit instead of Regedt32 to rename this registry key.
12.Rename it to an unused drive letter "\DosDevices\Z:".

This frees up drive letter C.
13.Find the drive letter you want changed. Look for "\DosDevices\D:".
14.Right-click \DosDevices\D:, and then click Rename.
15.Rename it to the appropriate (new) drive letter "\DosDevices\C:".
16.Click the value for \DosDevices\Z:, click Rename, and then name it back to "\DosDevices\D:".
17.Quit Regedit, and then start Regedt32.
18.Change the permissions back to the previous setting for Administrators (this should probably be Read Only).
19.Restart the computer.

After changed the drive letter . you can repair windows xp to fix it. don't format the drive
First boot from cd and press enter to install windows xp. then showing searching previous versions
then it will find your windows xp installation and you can confirm to repair the copy by press R

I can put a Movie dvd into D: drive it works,. I put a pc registry mechanic security/ cleaning cd into d: Drive it doesnt work, whats the problem?

Do you mean that the security disk doesn't autorun or that you can't access it from the Computer (My Computer) windows Explorer?

If it is the former, Microsoft has disabled Autorun for anything that has .exe files by default. (It was done during a Windows update quite a while ago.) Media (movies and CDs) discs are generally allowed to AutoPlay since they rarely carry malicious software.

Double left-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon (or press Start > Computer). Then double-click on the optical drive icon. Once you open the optical drive folder, look for an Install program (.msi) or an executable program (.exe). Double-click to run the program.

To change the Autorun settings, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Then click on Autoplay and change the setting for Software and Games. If you do this, it may get reset later. (This is for Windows 7; it will be similar in other versions of Windows.)

If you can't access the cleaning CD from Windows Explorer, I'd suggest you try the disc on another computer and check it for damage (scratches or an incorrect .iso burn).

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with some additional details if you need more assistance.

Free download full system recovery of windows 7 home premium

Hi ,
There is no need to download anything but you can create an image of your entire system + a System Repair Disc .
Go to Start and type " back up " in the search bar . Now select " back up your computer " and click on " create a system image " in the next window and follow instructions . You' ll need an external HDD to transfer the image to it .
At the end of the procees , Windows will ask you if you want to create a System Repair Disc . Insert a cdrom ( it's sufficient , you don't need a dvd ) in your drive and click on " yes " .
In case of a later issue , you just need to load the repair disc and your system will be fully restored to the date of the image creation . So , you need to repeat the operation from time to time .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

Running very very slowly

Well several things could cause that, but not knowing how long this condition has existed, i will give you steps that should speed it back at least part of the way back like it was before.
First, delete ALL browser history, alot of web browsing means alot of cookies, and they can slow things down, as the computer reads all the cookies before going to a website

Next, run disk cleanup, al have it remove all the available choices.

Next, run disk defragmenter, a defragmented drive is ALWAYS faster than one where the files are scattered in bits all over the drive.

Next, look and see if there any programs installed that you don't use, if so, consider uninstalling them, as they have registry keys that get loaded, even if they don't ever get used, and that uses system resources

Next, disconnect from the internet and run a FULL scan of your entire system, viruses, adware, malware, trojans, keyloggers, and other nasties can slow even a brand new computer down so much that if will feel like you are using a 15 year old computer.

Next, connect back to the internet and go to :

that link is for a computer running windows Vista or Windows 7, if it is running xp, then here is the link for it as well:

run the full scan option....note...this may take some time, I recommend that you do this step at the same time you go to bed, that way it will be finished when you get up, instead of sitting around waiting for what may be hours at a time.

If you have a registry cleaner program, run that AFTER you run the safety scanner, that way you are sure to get all the extra registry entries that point to programs that aren't on the computer anymore, same thing goes with hardware, everytime you connect a device to the computer it leaves a registry entry, the registry tells the OS what the program or device is, where it is located, how it is configured, who is allowed to use it and even performance settings.

If you do not have a registry cleaner, I recommend CCleaner.

Their website is :

I hope this helps you speed up your system.

Maxtor one touch storage malfunction

ok for one ( storage is just that its storage ) it doesn't have
anything to do with your OS and the registry , everything
on your computer runs through the operating systems
registry , static storage does not run through the registry
static storage should never have an operating system
installed on it , ( its the only way to keep viruses out )
also it should never be turned on while booting and
restarting , BIOS figures what is on and running on
a computer since this is a HDD your BIOS will calculate
it as being a viable HDD , which will confuse the registry
, for one thing RAM is not really memory when you remove
RAM it doesn't take any data with it , it doesn't store any
data , RAM simply installs an image of the data on the HDD
once this image is damaged the HDD will have to go through a reformat ( hence loosing all data ) its a common mistake that
people make with their static storage devices , if you reboot
a computer that uses a static storage device and id turned on
while the computer is booting a registry entry will be allocated
to that drive , its a windows root file that can never be removed
unless the drive is reformatted the folder has a long number
attached and will be in the number one position on the static
HDD , the folder can not be removed or moved copied or deleted
since its a registry entry the HDD image is at risk of corruption
you can try to rename the drive to its original assignment letter
turn off the static drive and reboot , after rebooting turn on the
storage drive and see if its accessible , Note: there are only two types of files that can be saved on a static storage HDD 1. media
files such as music movies PDFs videos photos Etc. 2. program
executibles ( your programs ) using a one touch back up is
strangely incorrect , it backs up your documents folder which
is a folder that runs through the OS registry so it will save stuff
that is not needed or can be used later , keep in mind that the
only things you'll want to keep are the things that you pay for
like your programs and memories and entertainment as well
as work , if it runs through your OS registry you can not keep
it , so half of the documents folder is copy and paste and the
rest runs through the registry

DVD Drive disappears after install of iTunes and restart

This is a rather nasty little bug. You actually have to go into the Registry editor to fix this one up.  If you're not experienced, be careful with this or you could stuff up your computer  (good idea to make a backup copy of the reigstry before changing anything).

Go to Start --> Run --> type "regedit"

1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 
2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet. 
3. Expand Control, and then expand Class. 
4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. 
5. In the right pane (topic area), click UpperFilters.  6. Remove the UpperFilters entry. 7. Save changes
Boot your computer and all should be well.
