You might have a Virus. In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

When you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a Windows repair; to fix the issues that the virus has caused OR use a registry repair tool to repair registry items. Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.

Error 7 i cant open facebook


This error is most likely due to a problem with the Application folder on your computer during the installation process.

To resolve this issue, delete the Application folder, then try installing again. Follow these steps (for Windows):
  1. Go to the Start menu > Run.
  2. Enter one of the following commands in the text field, depending on your operating system.
    • Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome
    • Windows Vista: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome
  3. Click OK.
  4. Delete the Application folder. If you're having difficulty deleting this folder, check for active Google Chrome processes on your computer and end them. Here are a few ways to locate and shut down these processes:
    • Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your keyboard and click Task Manager. Click the Processes tab and end every process that includes "google" or "chrome" in its name.
    • Download a third-party program called Process Explorer at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx. Use its Find menu to search for "Chrome/Application," then end all resulting processes.
    Now try deleting the Application folder again.
  5. Once the Application folder is deleted, try installing Google Chrome again.

Well, I am new to fixya, so please don't forget to appreciate the solution.

Thanks.

Xp pro sp2 desktop icons have become mere links without any program / application skins" . Have been opening program from start menu. pls help!!!!


Hi,

It sounds like you have a virus infecting the computer.

I recommend that you attempt to restore the system to an earlier date before the problems occurred.

If you click on the start menu and click on run, type rstrui.exe and hit the enter key.

System restore will pop up, choose a date that your comfortable with and see if you can restore the system.

If you experience any difficulty please post back.

Good luck.

Problem finding saved sound


Symbian OS/S60 phone: With the Voice Recorder on the screen, open Options. Select Go To Gallery. All the recordings you have saved can be accessed from the Gallery. You should see a list of recorded tunes. Highlight a recording, open Options and choose "Set as ringing tone." Windows Mobile phone: When you are still in the Voice Recorder, highlight a recording in the list and open the Menu. Select Set As Ringtone.
If your phone menu doesn't show the Set As Ringtone choice at all, you have to set it manually. Go to the Home screen, push Start, and open File Manager. You have to move the recording from the folder /Storage/My Documents/Notes to the folder /Storage/Application Data/Sounds. Then, go to the Start menu and launch Settings. Select Sounds, open Ring Tone, and pick up the recorded ring tone.
