Hey, this seems to be a virus problem
this virus normally attacks the systems and does some recoverable registry changes like,...."disabling task manager", disabling registry tools", "disabling folder options" etc.,

I hope u have been infected with one like these, please find the cure for u thro google (use Antivirus for preventing further attacks)

if not able to find thro google, come back... we are here to give complete instructions for cleaning.


:)

Bye

Have a nice day

I need clear instructions on how to transfer data from Windows XP laptop to Windows 7 desktop by Kingston DT1/2GB


I assume the USB pen is formatted and empty.
Place the Pen in a free USB on your laptop and with Explorer select the file/s you want to copy. Highlight the file names and with "My Computer" open drag the files onto the Pen.
When you have finished, remove the Pen and place it in the Win7 desktop.
Open Explorer on your Desktop and select the files in the Pen. Right hand mouse click on them using the move command and place them on your desktop.
When you have finished you can then make folders to move them into on your Win7 Desktop.
Hope this explains it for you.

Transfer all files from my old desktop to new laptop


you can do that by following the steps below;
Instructions
  1. Step 1 Connect your laptop to your desktop through a home network connection. If you have a home network, you can hook up your laptop to it via an Ethernet cable or a wireless network card. Then, you can set a folder on your desktop computer to be shared across the network. To set a folder as shared in Windows, simply right click on it, select "Sharing and security," select the "Share" tab and check the box labeled "Share this folder on the network." You will then be able to access this folder from your laptop and transfer files to your.hard drive.
  2. Step 2 Purchase a USB jump drive. These handy devices are the size of a key but can store five gigabytes of files or even more, depending on the type of USB jump drive you buy. Insert the USB jump drive into your USB port and your operating system should find it as new hardware. If a window doesn't automatically come up, you can find in your drives under "My Computer." Then, you can click and drag files into it, remove the drive and take it to your desktop computer and access the files there.
  3. Step 3 Put your files onto another external storage device, such a CD, floppy disk or external hard drive. Files are transferable between any computers as long as you can store them on something external, then use that external device to move them to the other computer.
  4. Step 4 Email files to yourself. If you only have a few files that you would like to transfer and don't have any of the equipment used in Steps 1 through 3, send yourself an email with the files attached, access your email from the other computer and download the files to your hard drive.

Best practices after nasty virus attacks that leaves your system unstable or working less than normal calls for a reinstall. My advice to you is backup any files you want to keep on a usb drive and VIRUS SCAN THE DRIVE. Once you are 100% sure that your files are backed up and virus free gather your OS install media and CD Keys then reinstall. I can not stress enough to be 110% sure your back up files are clean or you will reinfect your new OS install. With well over 12 years of experiences fighting viruses this is just the way to go rather than spending days or weeks of hair pulling trying to restore a damaged OS until this is a mission critical system for a customer.

Base from your statement I can only say only in general. If that not ask a login pass before. This could be a viral activity in your system. It could be a faked alert. Or just a features of your unit.

Either way if this is not a viral activity blue screen mean a driver and hardware conflict. Beeping means memory or video card loose contact or dirty, or fail already.

But to sure I will have your harddrive to be scan by antivirus or antimalware thru another computer, first. Then troubleshoot the unit without the harddrive just using a plain bootable DOS disc. For this you can isolate which one is faulty, a hardware failure, viral, or driver hardware confict. And also OS problem.

Hope I give best possible solution.

How is transfering Data and information from my computer into 1GB USB2.0(Data Traveler) done?. How do I start and how do I connect the USB2.0 on my computer to begin the transfering?. I am asking this...


FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT FLASH DRIVES

USB (Universal Serial Bus) flash drives are high-speed, high-capacity memory devices designed for long-term data storage and easy transport among PCs. The host PC treats the device just like a drive, so you can transfer files of all types to and from the device. Because the device emulates a drive, it supports any type of file, including audio files (such as MP3s) and graphics files (such as JPEGs [Joint Photographic Experts Group] and BMPs [bit map]). In addition, USB flash drives can easily support applications, CAD (computer-aided design) drawings, and a wealth of personal information you'd rather not leave on any particular PC. Even so, most USB flash drives are smaller than a pack of gum and can easily fit onto a key ring.

Years ago, users often referred to the practice of using floppies to transport files among PCs as sneakernet. Because USB flash drive manufacturers designed these devices for transport among PCs, their increasing popularity has given rise to a "new sneakernet."
