When I get a text message, it says I'm running out of memory even though I have deleted all the old messages. How can I fix this? I tried taking out the battery and restarting but that didn't work.

Go into application manager (settings, usually in my device, application manager) and look for the app you are having trouble with, when you find the app tap on it to open and "clear cache", this will clear the apps cache and may solve the problem. Be aware! If you have to much space taken up in your phones internal memory it will affect the performance of your phone overall. Try deleting some large files in your file manager ( movies and the like) this will free up the processor to work efficiently.

I cant copy a big file (example: ISO file size 7gb) into my transcend external hard disk 500gb. a pop out message will appeared (File too big to transfer) help me please. Thanks

Please check how many Mb free disk space you currently have on your transcend device as the description of the pop up message sounds like the default error message from the operating system stating that the file you're trying to transfer is too large to fit on the destination drive. Perhaps try copying and pasting a smaller file first just to make sure that there's nothing wrong with the drive before attempting to transfer such a large file.

I have a powershot SD 790 IS.When i turn the camera on i get the message Card locked.How do i get it unlocked & can my pictures still be recovered? Thank-You Maurita

Take the card out of the camera, on the left hand side, you should see a small notch you can slide to lock and unlock. Slide to the unlock position.

If its already in the unlock position, re-insert it and check the camera - card setup menu, you may have picture protection enabled..

Once accessed you will see which pictures have survived, the only problem I can fore see is that you tried to take pictures while the card was locked, in this case, none will survive.

If you think there are files which may have been deleted, you could download and install "recuva" from "" then try to recover deleted files, but be sure to recover said files to a new destination ie a folder on your PC. If you recover back to your card, you will overwrite the very same files your trying to recover.

This happens from time to time and is normally nothing to worry about. Run Disc Cleanup and remove all it finds. This will reset the cache in IE and may solve the problem.

I cant delete a virus on my mp3

Solution : Use unlocker
Unlocker is a very useful freeware that will allow you to unlock any files that are currently in use by Windows or other malwares or viruses. You’ll know if this is happening if you are getting any of these messages when trying to delete a file:
  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
  • There has been a sharing violation
  • The source or destination file may be in use
  • The file is in use by another program or user
  • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use
Unlocker will make things right again for you.
You’ll notice that right after installing the software, a new option named “unlocker” will appear when right clicking any files or folders in Windows Explorer. To unlock a locked file, just right click it, select unlocker, and the unlocker software will start. Then, click “unlock all” and close the software. Now that your file is unlocked, just delete it in Windows Explorer, as you always do.

please download unlocker from this site

Hope this will help you

How can i delete movies recorded from compro dtv4 Large files I says it is too large to send to recyle bin when trying to delete folder says it is right protected

First try deleting file without sending to recycle bin.

To do this you must hold down the "shift" key on your

keyboard while clicking the "delete" item on the menu..

If that does not work, you may try to enlarge the recycle bin,
Look up how to do that on H E L P screens.
If you do not have enough room on that drive you might
redefine the recycle bi on a larger drive, and try again.

Removing the protection might be more difficult. Get help elsewhere..
Or try changing the properties of the file..

Possibly search the contents of the REGISTERY file for the title you
have for this file and remove references ..
