Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive

Can't see icon on desktop

To eliminate the chance my kids might access important files/applications on my EXHD and trash or damage them thru their accounts on my Mac, I opened the "Info" (command I) and restricted their accessibility.
I was very careful not to check the box to negate my own accessibility thru my administrator account. However, at the next start up, the Acomdata drive icon did not show up on my desktop. I went to disk utilities, and while the drive is visible there and is recognized, I can't access it or get to any of the information... can you tell me how I can once again get the icon back and access the EXHD, and restrict it's use/access by other Users?

Can't Relaunch Microsoft Outlook 11


Go to your User home (in Finder, make sure the sidebar is shown. Click on the icon with your user name). You should see a list of folders at the left - Applications, Desktop, Documents, ... Click on Library and open the Preferences subfolder. Scroll down the list of files until you get to "com.microsoft.Outlook.plist" or similar filename. Delete this file, then try opening Outlook 11. You will have to redo your user settings if it works. You may also have to re-enter your product key, but it's more likely Microsoft hides this somewhere else. If you just end up with more problems, drag the file back to where it was from the Trash.
Explanation: although it's rare in OS X, preference files can be corrupted. For example, a power glitch while the hard drive is writing may cause garbage to be written across a file other than the one intended for modification. A corrupted initialization preference can stall or abort the application launch. Trashing (or at least removing from the Preferences folder) the bad file will force the application to make a new one from scratch.

Sony VAIO VGC-RB38G PC Desktop needs the media center re-installed


I would seriously doubt that your kids know how to remove Media Center. Maybe they just removed the icon from the desktop. Click Start/My Computer and open the Local Disk C. Look for the Programs File Folder. If you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista there might be two Program File folders (Program Files and Program Files (x86). Look thru the program files folders for the Windows Media Player Folder or Windows Media Center Folder. Open the folder and look for the Media Player. When you see the Icon you can Right Click on it and select Properties. If the Type of File in the properties windows says Application, that is probably the program that runs. You can close the properties window and double click on the icon and see if it runs.

If it runs, you can close it and go back into the folder and Right Click on the icon and select the option Sent To then select Desktop (create Short Cut). Right Click on it again and select option to Pin To Start Menu.

If you just want to download and install it again.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Download Media Player" or "Download Media Center" (without the quotes). Select a site from Microsoft that will download and install it.

How can recover the deleted pictures in picasa


When you delete photos or folders using Picasa, they are sent to the Recycle Bin (Windows) or Trash (Mac). If you have not emptied this paper, follow these steps to recover your photos:

Windows:

Select Restore.

I bought an imac g 3350 . never had a mac before


Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.

New multi-function Canon Pixma 310--scanner not working


Step1 Make sure the Mac computer is on, and close all programs. Locate your hard drive icon on the desktop. Generic, non-personalized systems will simply say "Macintosh HD" by the icon; however, if the user or owner has personalized their Mac's space, it may have a different name. Regardless, the icon looks the same: it appears as a small, silver metal rectangle that resembles a piece of computer hardware. Step2 Click on the "Applications" folder once you're viewing the contents of the Mac's hard drive. The Applications folder holds all programs that have been installed on the machine. Step3 Scan the list of available applications to see find the one(s) you seek to uninstall. There are two ways to uninstall the program once you've located it. One option is clicking while holding the Ctrl key once to select the file, a small menu will pop up. Select "Move to Trash". A second option is to locate the file in the Applications folder, select it, and drag it to the Trash on the desktop. Step4 Ensure that you've removed all files associated with the program, in case they all weren't located in the Applications folder. Use Ctrl + F and use the appropriate keywords to search the name of the program. Any findings will disclose the location of the associated files. Located each file in the designated folder, and delete. Step5 Know that you can also install and uninstall programs on a Mac using an actual program called an installer. Recommendations for the best such program, including directions for installing and uninstalling, can be found online.

If that doesn't work, please let me know and will further pursue your issue.

Problem opening quarkxpress on g4 mac


The first place to look is your permissions. Open your utilities folder in your applications folder and launch **** utility. Click on your hard drive icon and click the repair disk permissions button. It may take a few moments to run. That might solve your problem.

If that does not solve the problem. Open library/preferences/Quark. Move the pref' doc in that folder onto you desktop (don't trash yet) try relaunching the app. If still not working trash the pref' and try again.

If all that fails I'm afraid you'll have to re-install the app'
