So many possibilities, it's difficult to know where to start.. I would look for some recovery software.. It's easy to use and there are several free versions around. Eg File Scavenger, Ontrack easy recovery, Active Undelete enterprise etc.. etc. It's important to try to recover your files before you overwrite them.. Although most of this software can still recover it after that has been done. Quite good stuff really. Good Luck.

Wipe the computer memory and restore factory settings


You can recover any files deleted from computer. best thing you can do that to recover any file is by using recovery software, but you must act quickly before that file will gone forever because everything that you do, installing, downloading anything you do can make this file lost forever, my recommendation is Asoftech Data recovery which helped me before, download from
Deleted Files Recovery Software

I have just installed BOOKKEEPER 2008. An error window keeps coming up Error # 3010 I need to get this fixed as quickly as possible. Thanks, Deb


It looks like a file has been corrupted during the installation process.
Download and install CCleaner from www.ccleaner.com
Uninstall BookKeeper and then use the registry cleaning tool in CCleaner to clean up the registry of your computer.
Re-install BookKeeper and make sure no other programs are running on your computer during the installation.

GENERAL COMPUTER TIPS TO MAKE YOUR PC FAST WORKING...!!!


1) Store all files in one folder according to it's type :- The my folder option is provided exclusively for this purpose as it helps in tacking out the type of file you are looking for easily and also its mush easier to backup the files at once. Secondly it helps to run the machine faster.

2) Don't store your files in the root folder c:/ drive.... :- Its recommended to store your files in the other drives that you create, because C drive is formatted every time you format or re-install windows or whenever there is a system crash, as a result all your files are lost.

3) Uninstall the programs that are not in Use :- Running programs tend to use the disk space hence reducing the speed of the system. So Uninstall all the files and programs that are not in use. Don not delete them but go to START, then Control Panel and then Add or Remove programs option and Remove the desired program.

4) When downloading a ZIP file, when you expand it delete the original file when done.

Just try following the above ueful tips and Get going to use a Faster Pc.

Boot system error, insert boot disk..


If you are using windows,System files(boot.ini, config.sys, autoexec.bat, msdos.sys, io.sys) might have lost or corrupted accidentally. You can fix it easily by connecting your hard disk to any other system having windows. boot from the host computer's operating system. open my computer, select folder options from tools menu. select second tab (view) scroll down to uncheck "hide protected operating system files (recommended)" and click ok. now go to C drive. Now you can see the system files mentioned above. copy all the required files to your hard disks partition's root and shutdown. now take out your hard disk and connect to your computer and re-start.
another method is to make a bootable pendrive (visit: http://www.esnips.com/doc/0882f54e-3445-41b6-830d-e43fd7d02dc2/Active+Password+Changer+-+Boot+Disk+Creator
to download application to make bootable pendrive.) copy all the system files from another computer. boot your system using this pendrive and select option 3 to exit from the menu to prompt. copy all the files to your OS partition and now reboot. this will solve your problem (you may need to change bios setting to boot from usb). for further details you can contact av_balajee@yahoo.com

XP

Use system restore to a restore point before your computer crashed. AVG is one of the best antivirus programs out there. I even recommend it.

If your are using Vista, insert the DVD and boot from the CD/DVD. When you get to the install page select the repair your computer option.
From the options select System Restore.

On a personal tip:

I am currently using BitDefender Tolal Security and I am recommending this one also.
If you have formatted your harddrive, then you are SOL!!!

Continuous start up loop


If that's so, use your operating system disc. Just use the REPAIR option, not the Install a fresh copy of the operating system. You don't have to worry because it will not remove your files saved in your harddisk. It will stay intact if you choose Repair. It will just repair the missing/corrupted file in your system.

System recovery


hello,

Yes, everything will be lost when you use system recovery, but if you can do backup you files in your computer, you can do system recovery., So if you cannot back up your files maybe i suggest you to scan your computer online. www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm

and then uninstall all the unwanted programs, after scanning you should install antivirus, i recommend AVG, free edition, (search in google)downloadable. if you connected to the computer.

Windows Vista Home Premium will not let me open PNY Optima Pro Attache 4GB


the files from XP may or may not be readable on vista...and I can assure you vista files will not read on xp..

recommend you get two of those.

no guarantees of interchangeability from xp to vista(why am I not surprised?)
