SOURCE: Restoring My GT4022 with windows xp

Hope that I can help, a little more info? Please do not delete any programs, go to control panel add/remove programs. I have a usb drive that I pass around to my users with Malware_bytes and other programs, the free one, very good. first download Malware_Bytes from tne Internet and update it and scan your PC, delete anything from the quarenteen folder. If you have malware, it is likely that restore won't help. Windows updates should be done about every 2 weeks.
If you cannot get to the Net, have someone else do it for you and install it, have them run it as well, will do yuo both a favor.

backup your data and do a repair install - might take a while longer but at least you know it will clear any issues.

there are a number of things you can do to fix it but will most likely take a lot longer

You need to access the BIOS - press F1 or F2 (depending on the version)during the start of the desktop - and in there you must modify the boot order: put the cd first then the had disk second. Save the change, reboot, insert the Vista disk and reboot once more - the disk will be loaded.

Computer off, Photosmart C4580 OFF, and unplugged from power. Disconnect the USB cable from it to the computer.

Turn the computer on.
Remove all associated HP software for the Photosmart.

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
When the list populates remove all HP software for the Photosmart.
When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.

Restart your computer.

HP Support > HP Photosmart C4580 > Main support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3418707&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Click on the heading - Software and Driver Downloads - in the list.
(Right side)

Select your Operating System. Click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the box with Select in it.

Click on the Operating System you are using.
(If you have Windows XP Home or Pro, click on Windows XP.
Unless you have Windows XP Pro that states it's 64-bit )

I'm going to use Win XP as an example, because the O/S you are using wasn't mentioned.

After you click on your O/S, go to the right, and click on Next in the blue rectangle.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3418707

Using Windows XP for an example I would click on the + sign,
to the left of, Driver - Product Installation Software (2)

The drop down list shows;

A) HP Photosmart Basic Drivers
56.03 MegaBytes in size. (56.03MB)

B) HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
149.41MB in size.

I recommend downloading B)
Get the full package.

Click right on the blue heading -
HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

Scrolling down to the heading - Details and Specifications, and further down to the sub-heading - Compatibility, we see this software is compatible with XP and Vista.

Shows it to be compatible with Windows Vista, and both versions 32-bit, and 64-bit.

Only shows it to be compatible with Windows XP in a 32-bit version.

If it is good for a Vista 64-bit O/S, I'm going to go out on a limb, and state it will work with Windows XP Pro 64-bit.

To download the file click on the blue file name -

PS_AIO_04_C4500_USW_Full_Win_enu_120_210_NB.exe

( [1/1, 149.41m]
This means Page 1 of 1, and the size is 149.41 MegaBytes )

After you click a small window will come up.
Opening - and the file name.

Click on - Save File.

After you click another small window will come up. This time on the left side.
In the heading of this window, tells you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

[ Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Write this down, and the file name. (File name; so you can find it later)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Downloads:
Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy instructions.
(Next, Next, and Finish)

When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

Plug the USB cable of the Photosmart back into the Advent laptop.
Turn the Photosmart on.

After a few seconds, (After all of your Start-Up menu items are loaded, really), a pop-up should come up out of your system tray;

"Found new hardware"

,and perhaps another one,
"Found HP Photosmart C4580"

Post additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Why remove the software, then reinstall?

1) I don't think going to Add or Remove Programs, and clicking on - Repair, for the HP Photosmart software, will do any good.

I think there are too many files corrupted, and the software needs to be reinstalled in full.

2) You may get a driver conflict, with having part of the old HP software still there, and then reinstalling new software.

(Probability is pretty low, but why take chances, or have to do it all over again? )

Tip

File Sharing in Windows 2000/XP Pro


Before setting up file sharing
  • Your computer must be connected to the campus network in order to set up file sharing. If you need to connect your computer to the network.
  • You will need to log into your computer using an Administrator account (in most cases, this is the account you normally log in with).
  • Make sure you are logging into your computer by using a password and that every other user account on your computer is set up with a password. If your computer does not have password-protected user account(s), you are at high risk from hackers taking over your computer and using it for illegal purposes without your knowledge.
  • Install the latest security patches and updates.
  • Check your anti-virus program and make sure it is up-to-date.
  • For computers with Windows XP Pro:
    • If your computer was set up to work on a LAN at home or any place other than Wellesley, you must disable the non-Wellesley network connections in order for file sharing to work correctly. Note: You will need to re-enable these connection(s) when you take your computer off the Wellesley College network, i.e. off-campus.
      1. Go to the Start menu and select the Control Panel.
      2. If you do not see the Network Connections icon in the Control Panel, click on the link for Switch to Classic View near the top left of the window.
      3. Double-click on the Network Connections icon.
      4. In the Network Connections window, to check which Local Area Connection icon is for Wellesley, select the icon and make sure the Details menu on the left side of the window is displayed (double-arrows next to the word Details should be pointing down). The IP Address should start with 149.130.
      5. If you see any other Local Area Connection icons or 1394 Connection icons listed in the Network Connections window, right-click on the connection and select Disable from the menu.
      6. Close any open windows.
    • If you have Windows XP Pro's Internet Connection Firewall enabled, it will prevent your computer from being able to share files and prevent you from using several resources at Wellesley College. To turn it off:
      1. Go to the Start menu and select the Control Panel.
      2. If you do not see the Network Connections icon in the Control Panel, click on the link for Switch to Classic View near the top left of the window.
      3. Double-click on the Network Connections icon.
      4. In the Network Connections window, right-click on Local Area Connection (the one for Wellesley as described in step 4 above) and select Properties from the window.
      5. Click on the Advanced tab.
      6. Uncheck Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet and then click OK.
I. Configure your computer for file sharing You will only need to configure your computer for file sharing once. If the option for file sharing is already set up on your computer or if you wish to set up another shared folder on your computer.
    1. Go to the Control Panel.
      • In Windows 2000, click on the Start button and then select Settings > Control Panel.
      • In Windows XP Pro, click on Start and then select the Control Panel.
    2. Double-click on the Network Dial-Up Connections or the Network Connections icon. In Windows XP, if you do not see this icon, click on Switch to Classic View located on the left side of the window to see all Control Panel options.
    3. In the new window that appears, right-click on the Local Area Connection icon and select Properties from the menu.
    4. In the Local Area Connection Properties window, check that the General tab is selected. Under the This connection uses the following items: or the Components checked are used by this connection section, check that File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks is listed and make sure that its checkbox is checked. If it is listed, the computer is already configured for file sharing; click Cancel and skip to the next section.
    5. Click the Install button.
    6. Click once on Service to select that option.
    7. Click Add.
    8. Click once on File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks to select it and then click OK.
    9. Click Close.
    10. If the computer asks to restart, click No.
Setting up the folder that will be shared Only folders may be shared, not individual files, i.e. if you wish to share a file named blue.doc, then you must put blue.doc inside a folder and then share that folder by following the directions below. Note: If a Windows 98 computer is going to access your shared folder, then the name of your shared folder should not contain any spaces.
    1. Right-click on the file or folder to be shared. In the drop-down menu that appears, select Sharing or Sharing and Security.
    2. Select Share this folder. The name of the folder that appears on the network may be changed by typing in the new name in the Share name field.
    3. Click on Permissions.
    4. Click once on Everyone to select it and then click Remove.
    5. Click Add.

My compaq d530 cmt....i cannot get on the internet and cant find the right driver for and dont know which driver to install......help


You didn't state what Operating System you're using. I'm going to assume WinXP Home.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=316722&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=316720&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1098#11395

Go down to the heading Driver-Network.

Now Minimize the window. (At the top right of the screen. Starting from left to right; Minimize window icon, Maximize window icon, Close window icon. {Red square, white X)

On your desktop screen right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager fully loads, left-click on the + sign next to Network adapters.

Now match up the name of the device, with the correct network driver file listed in the HP Support link.

Is it a Broadcom device listed?
Is it the newer version? Broadcom NeXtreme? (Doubt it)

If it isn't Broadcom NetXtreme the two first files listed do not apply.

Go on down. Is it an Intel device?
Just indicates Intel in the name of the device?
Intel Gigabit Network Connection Drivers for Microsoft Windows XP.

Or does it have Intel PRO/1000 in the name of the device?
Intel PRO/1000 GT Drivers for all operating systems.

Not Intel?
Just lists as a Broadcom device?

Skip the next 6 files.
They deal with wireless networking, and Bluetooth.

You want - Broadcom Driver for Windows XP

After you left-click directly on the file name you want, it takes you to another page.
Go to the right of the heading - File name: and sp26992.exe (31MB), and left-click on Download.

A small window comes up.
Opening sp26992.exe
Left-click on - Save File

In the next window that comes up write down what is in the heading.
In the heading tells you where the file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads in the heading.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.
My Documents: Left-click on Start, then My Documents.
Downloads: Left-click on Start, then My Documents, then double-click on Downloads.

When you see the file Double-click on it.
Follow the Installation Wizard instructions.
(Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Windows will put the file in the proper place)

Now restart your computer.

I don't want Palladium on my computer and I can't delete it


Manual Removal procedure for Palladium Pro The first step you must take in order to remove Palladium Pro is to stop one of the following processes below. Only one of them will be running.
  • Palladium.exe
  • PalladiumPro.exe
  • Palladiumantivirus.exe
  • Z.exe
To Stop this process you can browse to the file location shown below and re-name the file first and then restart your computer. Then browse to that file location again and delete the file.
The next step in Palladium Pro removal is to delete the following file:
Windows XP :
  • C:\Program Files\Palladium Pro\PalladiumPro.exe
  • C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Palladium.exe
  • C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Palladium Pro\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Program Files\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
Windows Vista / Windows 7 :
  • C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Palladium.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Palladium Pro\PalladiumPro.exe
  • C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Palladium Pro\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\%AppData%\Z.exe
Once you have successfully deleted these traces, Palladium Pro should no longer be running in your machine and now you should run a complete virus scan for the system using Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. This will let you know whether you have been able to remove all the traces of Palladium Pro successfully and also whether there is any other threat still available in the system.
If you need advanced help or an expert we recommend www.onlinecomputerrepair.org
Palladium Pro Registry Removal Procedures Now that your system is free from the Palladium Pro file traces that have been mentioned above, it is time to get rid of the infected registry items.
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Palladium"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Palladium Pro"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Palladium Pro"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Palladium Pro
It is important that you run a complete virus scan for your computer when you are done with the removal procedure to ensure maximum protection for the system. For that, we suggest you to run the scan with Spyware Doctor with Antivirus.
Palladium Pro Directories: XP
  • C:\Program Files\Palladium Pro\
  • UPDATED: We have a report of it being at C:\Windows\Palladium Pro for some users.
Windows 7 / Windows Vista
  • C:\Program Files (x86) \Palladium Pro
Or mail me googolplexcorporation@gmail.com we will remove it through remote desktop support

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's


To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.

File/Folder Permission Message in Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus


Hello welcome to FIxya!

Here you can check this procedure on how to open your files again.

"1) Check your Recycle Bin
2) Do a Folder/File Search for each of the Grey Folder Project names. This will display all Folders & Files with that Project Name. You are looking for an .stx File. If it's there, right-Click on Project Name / Open Containing Folder & Copy it to your My Projects Folder. Then you should have both the Grey Folder & .stx File for the same Project name, showing in your My Projects Folder.
If the Search doesn't display a .stx File, you can create a new one, by Opening a New empty Project, which will create a My Movie Grey Folder & a My Movie .stx File, Save to your My Projects Folder. Delete the My Movie Grey Folder & Rename the My Movie .stx File to the same name as your original Grey Folder."
So ...after finding my "lost" movie file, with its file name, under Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects i then went through the following procedures using your great advice Colour;
  1. Make a copy of your found "lost" movie grey film icon file by right mouse clicking on your lost file and choosing "copy". Paste the copy into another folder in Documents where you can find it if need be
  2. Then go back to Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and right mouse click onto your grey film icon. Choose "rename". Then rename your "lost" grey film icon to a new file name but do not put .stc at the end of the file name, if you are operating VISTA and Pinnacle 12. This is important because Pinnacle 12 won't recognise the file later if you have .stc in the file name
  3. Open Pinnacle and go to the File Menu
  4. Click on New Project
  5. Open File Menu again and click on Save File as
  6. Give the file a name such as "Movie 7" and save it
  7. Close out of Pinnacle
