How to remove the text from the Desktop icon or from any directory or file


You can remove the text from any icon, directory or file, you just need to rename the file, directory or icon, just go to rename option and set blank name or single space-bar entry but the problem is that, windows will not allow you to set blank name or name with single space-bar entry. Here interesting thing is this, window will allow you to use the ASCII code for a space, which is 0160.

First of all you can clear all the text from that icon
Now type the ASCII code, simply hold the Alt key, type the number 0160 from the number pad and release the Alt key then press Enter button to finish the process. (Note. you can also put some special character in place of text by pressing some different ASCII codes like - 6560, 2456, 4251 etc......)

I cant burn a cd or dvd


Hi,

You can try this work around.

Here's How:
  1. Click on the Start button.
    If you're using Windows XP, also click on Run.
  2. In the search box (Windows 7 and Windows Vista) or the Run textbox (Windows XP) type regedit and click OK or press the ENTER key.
    This will open the Registry Editor program.
    Important: Changes to the registry are made in these steps. Take care in making only the changes outlined below. While it's not a necessary step to complete this process, I recommend that you play it safe by backing up the registry keys you're modifying.
  3. Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder under Computer/My Computer and click the '> or (+) icon next to the folder name to expand the folder.
  4. Continue to expand folders until you reach the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class registry key.
  5. Click on the '> or (+) icon next to the Class key to expand it. You should see a long list of subkeys open up under Class that look something like this: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
    Note: Each 32-digit subkey is unique and corresponds to a particular type, or class, of hardware in Device Manager.
  6. Determine the Correct Class GUID for the Hardware Device. Using this list, find the correct Class GUID corresponding to the type of hardware that you're seeing the Device Manager error code for.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

How do I operate my Philips go-gear 8GB mp4 player. Serial # RK1H1051038306, model # 06095819004. I can't make out the users manual. What I am tying to do is, transfer my class lectures, recorded in mp3...


Hi,

I have a Philips go-gear 4GB player. There is no charger included. To charge the player, use any firewire/USB cable and connect the device to a PC or laptop. While the device is charging, the battery icon is blinking. When it is fully charged, the battery icon will stay static.

To copy to the device, open Windows explorer. Look for the Philips Go-gear folder icon. Open the Philips folder and Copy you music files inside the device's my music folder. If the file is video, copy the file in the my video folder.

Once the device is fully charged, disconnect the device by right-clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on lower right portion of your PC screen. Select Safely remove hardware then Choose the philips go-gear device to eject.

Power on the device then use the navigation keys to select the files you like to play. Click ok or the play button.

Go to Start> Control Panel and you will find access to many of the settings, like Display controls the screen you see, etc.
Please also go to this page at Microsoft and there are very many tutorials that will show you how to use your computer. You just click on the icon or title of what you want when your mouse turns from an arrow into a hand pointing. Click on this

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

I am a victim of software counterfeiting


Well I had tough time finding soloution for it, but found a way after going through many blogs, its obvious that we are not using genuine MS OS, but we can go for it to solve the problem altogether .The following steps are used to get rid of the Messagge "you are a victim of software counterfeiting" nagging at the desktop.Which happens to be outcome of Automatic updates "turned on" when you are conneted to internet.It worked on my computer and I dont have the message popping up anymore.I hope that you will find much help.
STEP 1

Turn off Automatic Updates

Clilck on START ->Settings-->Control panel ->Automatic updates (Select TURN OFF)

STEP 2

Goto My computer C drive select the folder ->Windows-->system32-->chek for a file WGATRAY.EXE (there r similar dll files named WGA * make sure ur selecting the correct one. The Icon is star shaped, similar to notification icon.This ICON would't delete).

STEP 4

Rename the file deleting the .exe extension and adding some number to filename (ex:Rename WGATRAY.EXE to WGATRAY22) make sure u remember the file name after renaming.

STEP 5

Delete the Renamed file (ex: wgatray22).It falls in Recycle bin.

STEP 6

Reboot the computer.

And chek there will be no message popping up on desktop !!!!

u might experience Black background screen, u can change the themes of your computer to different one from Control panel ==>display.(OR) Right click on Desktop-->properties-> themes

(I myself turned on Automatic updates to see any changes , it did not bring up any mesage later but not sure in future.)

Hope this article is helpful to folks!!!
