Hot keys not working


HiAre there any changes made? Intsallation of software, hardware or download.Well the best thing to do is to follow this.
Follow these instructions for reverting important Windows Vista files back to a previous state using System Restore:
Difficulty: EasyTime Required: Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows Vista usually takes several minutesHere's How:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
Click on the System Restore program icon.
Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.
Note: The default choice is Recommended restore. This restore point is probably the most recent automatically created one and is likely the best choice. However, for purposes of demonstrating the entire System Restore process in Windows Vista, I'll be continuing with the longer process of choosing a restore point manually.
Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show restore points older than 5 days checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows Vista created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows Vista changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows Vista will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before proceeding.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.Click Yes to the Are you sure you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows Vista to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
Click Close.
Check to see if whatever Windows Vista problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

Missing bdfdll.sys


Hi! Welcome to FixYA!
File bdfdll.sys is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files". Known file sizes on Windows XP are 8,704 bytes (61% of all occurrence), 7,808 bytes. However, some malware camouflage themselves as bdfdll.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder.So I suggest you run a full scan.If that doesn't work , you may try doing a system retore to bring the computer back in time when the issue is not yet present. For Windows XP:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click to select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option, and then click Next.
3. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5. Log on to the computer as an Administrator. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.

For Vista or 7:
1. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:
2. Then please follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

You need the drivers for the devices that somehow got hijacked, I would suggest the following:

Feature: System Restore
When to use it: When you suspect that any of the following changes have been made:
  • System or application settings have been changed. This includes changes made through property sheets and changes made to the registry.
  • Applications have been installed, updated, or removed.
  • Files other than data files have been added or deleted.
If you suspect the problem is due to installing an application, first try removing that application. If the problem persists, use System Restore. You must be logged on as an administrator to use System Restore.
What it does: Restores all system and application settings back to those that were in effect at a point in time you specify. Restores key application, driver, and operating system files changed since that time. Does not affect data files.

System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. Typically, you want to restore your computer to a restore point that was created just before the date and time when you started noticing problems. The descriptions of the restore points that are created automatically correspond with the name of an event, such as Windows Update installing an update. System Restore returns your computer to the state that it was in before the restore point that you choose.
To restore system files and settings using a recommended restore point

  1. Open System Restore by clicking the Start button In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  2. Click Recommended restore, and then click Next.

    If there isn't a recommended restore point, follow the steps below to choose a specific restore point.

  3. Review the restore point, and then click Finish.

To restore system files and settings using a specific restore point
  1. Open System Restore by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • If there is a recommended restore point, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.

    • If there isn't a recommended restore point, click Next.

  3. Click the restore point that you want, and then click Next.

    To view the programs and drivers that will be affected (which could include programs that will be deleted), click Scan for affected programs.

  4. Review the restore point, and then click Finish.

If none of that works for you, do the following:

You should be on your way,

Systems restore wont work tried it bothh ways. keeps comming up for tod ay. would like to restore it for 5 days ago please help


You should not rely on system restore points. They are very very unreliable. I suggest you restore from a backup. If you dont have a backup hopefully you can turn this into a positive experience and start making one.

Wont allow me to choose system restore, it will only highlight reboot


disable system restore - fix what the problem is and delete the old system restore points and then re enable the system restore and make a restore point again.

If you need more help post back and explain what the problem is or why you are trying to restore it and I will help further.

RestorePoint is UNABLE to restore my computer to a previous point


Check the disk space in your hard drive to make sure it's not too full. Turn off system restore, reboot and turn it back on.
You may need to run a registry cleaner if these suggestions don't work. Good luck.

Bluetooth iogear adapter


My Toshiba Laptop was setup to create automatic "System Restore Points"...I simply went back to the system restore point one day prior to installing the Iogear Bluetooth software: (my computer>accessories>toshiba tools>system restore).
I now have my Windows XP Welcome Screen back - -any changes or program installations I've made after the restore date will need to be reinstalled or reapplied, but I didn't have much on the laptop anyway, since I had just got it!
I would suggest backing up any files or data you may want to save before doing the system restore on any computer (maybe on a flashdrive or sd card, someplace other than the harddrive - then you can select what you want to install - excluding the culprit that caused you the problem). The system restore option will backup certain system files - notifying you of the new filenames after the restore has completed.
If the system restore process doesn't work, you do have the option of 'going back' to the last system settings, or trying another 'System Restore Point'.
If any desktop or laptop pc has a 'System Restore' option, I highly recommend turning this feature on....it may prevent a lot of headaches and problems!
One suggestion - BACKUP your system somewhere before making any major changes to your system...especially before installing new applications, or even before changing your system profiles or connectivity options...so many things can't easily be 'undone' !
