How do I down load to an external drive and not the main computer


First Solution:-

1. If you have copied a particular game's folder to the external drive, go to Start menu > Programs.
2. Right click on the file name of the game.
3. Click on "Properties"
4. Go to "shortcut" page and change the "Target" path directing the EXE file to the folder in the external drive where you have copy-pasted the your game.
5. Click on "Apply" and "OK".
6. Now, try to start the game, and you should be able to play.

An alternate solution is given below.

In both the cases (internet game / purchased games):-
1. First plug in the external hard drive to your computer.
2. You will have to run the installation file of the game (both purchased and internet download) and select the folder path directing it to the external hard drive.
3. For some games, you may have to uninstall the existing game first to re-install and select the desire folder path (external drive).
4. Games will be installed in external drive and also available in start menu > programs > "your game".

Happy gaming! :)

How do I down load to an external drive and not the main computer


1. First, you need to select the external drive while saving any game.
2. Try to play it from External drive first, if game does not play from external drive then try to play it from the Internal drive.
3. It does not make any difference whether you are playing game from external or interna drive because both the drives will use the computer resources and softwares to play the games.

Good Luck.

Antivirus System PRO virus.


Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

Purchase a flash drive (a cdrom will not work for this) and back-up your data on the thumb drive. I would recommend an 8 gig as to fit all your files.

Place the flash drive in the new computer and scan it immediately with the Norton.

By the way, there is one great software that will save the old computer and it only cost 30 dollars. I use it to kill this Rogue on all my customers computers and it takes me 10 minutes to get rid of it. Definetly worth the purchase!

Spy ware


It depends on the infection. My first recommendation would be to ditch Trend Micro, and get a better antimalware program (it's not very good compared to alternatives). Much better alternatives include; 1. NOD32 (or if you want the suite, NOD ESS) www.eset.com 2. Kaspersky www.kaspersky.com 3. Avira www.free-av.com 4. Avast www.avast.com 5. Malwarebytes AntiMalware www.malwarebytes.org Each of these include trials and/or free versions that you can use to get rid of the infection. I'd also recommend following it up by posting a HiJack This log to one of the many support forums available, including TeMerc Internet Countermeasures; www.temerc.com/forums To do so, please see the following instructions; http://temerc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=18 A list of other trusted support forums can be found at; Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals http://asap.maddoktor2.com
