How to Remove Smart HDD Virus (Remove Guide)?


Start your computer and press F8 key.

26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-2_0.jpg
Select safe mode to start your computer in safe mode.

26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg
Navigate to the Windows temporary folder. The default location of this folder is C:/Windows/Temp, C:/DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/ProfileName/LOCAL SETTINGS/Temp, or C:/Users/ProfileName/AppData/Local/Temp, although it could have been set to another location entirely. In all cases, it can be located by typing "cd %temp%" into the command line. 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg

Delete the following files. dfrgr dfrg WindowsUpdate.exe tmp2.tmp 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg

While still in the temp directory, look for three files that have seemingly random file names (With no extension), (with .exe extension) & (With .dll extension).Delete all three of these.

26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-20.jpg
Remove registry entries associated with the virus. Type "regedit" from the command line to start the windows registry editor. Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, and delete two entries involving the same random characters found in the previous step. 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-27.jpg
Remove "Smart HDD," "Smart HDD.lnk," and "Uninstall Smart HDD.lnk" from the start menu. Then delete "Smart HDD.lnk" from the desktop.
26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-35.jpg Reboot the computer in regular mode. The virus should be removed. 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-44.jpg

How to find a lost file on your Computer?


Today tip will help you to enjoy the quick and easy way to find lost files on your computer. Here I recommends you, try to search a file with its file extensions (for example for word file, type *.doc, Excel *.xls, Acrobat *.pdf, *.ppt and *.exe for executable files. If you don't know the name of file but know that it contains a string of text then try to search for files containing specific text, type the text you want to find from any file or folder. This is time taking process but creates very precise result. In Look in, click the drive, folder, or network you want to search. To save time, always select the specified drive or location instead of whole computer.

I cant use Music Match jukebox on my new PC. Why?


  1. Verify that your music is in the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus folder on your hard drive. Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, or select "My Computer" from the Start menu. Open the C:\\ drive. Double-click "MusicMatch Jukebox." Review the folder to check that all of your MP3 files are inside the folder. If not, search your computer for the files and drag them to the MusicMatch folder.
  2. Turn on folder sharing to ensure the software can access your music files. Open "My Network Places" in the "My Computer" folder. Click "Properties." In the resulting window, click "File and Print Sharing." Check the box next to, "I want to be able to give others access to my files." Click "OK" and close all open windows before restarting your PC.
  3. Check that you have permission to play the specific MP3 files if you are having playback issues. Occasionally, songs purchased through the Yahoo! Music online store using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus have faulty digital rights management (DRM) protection. Burn the file to a CD and then rip the song from the CD as an MP3, which removes the DRM protection and allows the software to play it without restrictions. This is your only recourse, as the MusicMatch store no longer exists. Previously, you could have contacted MusicMatch's customer service to have the song reissued.
  4. Reinstall the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus software. Click the "Start" menu button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen and select "Settings." Open your "Control Panel" and double-click the icon named "Add/Remove Programs." Locate "MUSICMATCH" in the list of available programs and click "Uninstall."
  5. Insert the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus installation disk into your computer's disk drive and follow the on-screen instructions to install the software again. This may resolve problems involving faulty computer files and corrupt Windows Registry data.
  6. Clean any CDs you are trying to rip or record to using the MusicMatch software. Disks with unclean surfaces involving dust or fingerprints are some of the most common reasons for faulty MP3 ripping or poor audio when recording CDs. Use a specialty disk cleaning cloth or a cloth intended for cleaning similarly sensitive accessories such as prescription eyeglasses. Wipe the disk from the middle toward the edge.please rate and comment on this product just by saying how helpful it is.raise the thumb up

Desktop items access denied Please Help Me!!!!


If you've taken ownership of the folders, you should be able to access the Security tab and assign yourself full permissions to the folder.

If you don't see the Security tab, go to Folder Options in Control Panel, select the View tab, then in the list box scroll to the bottom and de-select Simple File Sharing.

Hope this helps!

File sharing


it is possible

If you have multiple computers in your home and they are connected through a home network, you can share files among your computers. That means you no longer have to copy files to a floppy disk or USB flash drive to transfer them to another computer. Once you configure your computer to share files, you (or another user with the appropriate permissions) can, by using Windows Explorer, open them from other computers connected to the network, just like you’d open files that are stored on a single computer. You can also choose to have folders visible—but not modifiable—from other computers on the network.
To share files on your computer with other computers on a network, you need to:
Share a folder on your computer. This will make all of the files in the folder available to all the computers on your network (you can’t share individual files).
Set up user accounts on your computer for everyone who needs to connect to your shared folder. If any of the accounts are Limited User accounts (unless an account is a Computer Administrator account, it is a Limited User account), follow the steps in Set permissions for files and folders to enable them to open your files.

To access shared files that are on another computer on your network, you need to:
• Connect to the shared folder from other computers on the network. This procedure is described in Map a network drive.

Note: By default, file permissions only allow your user account and administrators on your local computer to open your files, regardless of whether a person is sitting at your keyboard or at another computer. It may help to keep these three things in mind when setting up file sharing:
• Files have user permission settings.
• Every computer has its own user database.
• Some accounts are administrator accounts and some aren’t.

Configure your computer to share files To share a folder on your computer so that files stored in the folder can be accessed from other computers on your home network
1.
Log on to your computer as an administrator. For more information, see Access the administrator account from the Welcome screen.
2.
Click Start, and then click My Documents.
68599-click-my-documents.gif 3.
Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Sharing and Security.
68599-click-sharing-and-security.gificotip.gif Tip: If you want to share your entire My Documents folder, open My Documents, and then click the Up button on the toolbar. You can then select the My Documents folder.
4.
If you see a message that reads, As a security measure, Windows has disabled remote access to this computer, click the Network Setup Wizard link. Then follow the instructions in How to set up your computer for home networking. On the File and printer sharing page of the Network Setup Wizard, be sure to select Turn on file and printer sharing. If you do not see this message, skip this step and go to step 5.
68599-click-network-setup-wizard.gif Note: If you do not see the Network Setup Wizard link or the Share this folder on the network check box, your computer probably has Simple File Sharing disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business. In fact, it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. You should follow these instructions to share a folder instead.
5.
In the Properties dialog box, select the Share this folder on the network check box.
68599-click-share-this-folder.gif 6.
If you want to be able to edit your files from any computer on your network (instead of just being able to open them without saving any changes), select the Allow network users to change my files check box.
68599-click-allow-network-users-to-change-my-files.gif 7.
Click OK.
68599-click-ok.gif Windows Explorer will show a hand holding the folder icon, indicating that the folder is now shared.
To connect to the shared folder from another computer, follow the steps described in How to map a network drive.
Note: By default, only you and other people with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder will be able to open your files. To limit access of specific users with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder, read How to set permissions for files and folders.
