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

Recover lost and hidden files on usb stick


If your files are hidden due to a viral infection, you can unhide them by going to "Computer" and seeing what drive letter your USB device is connected to. Next open a command prompt [hold down the "windows" key then press 'R'] On the 'RUN' window that appears, type 'cmd'

When the command prompt opens, type the drive letter of your USB drive, i.e H:, J:, G: etc...the command prompt should change to that drive letter. next type

attrib -s -h /s /d

the above command will unhide any files and folders that have been hidden on your drive

When I try to install the coby dp 151 it says: cant find photoviewer or program that owns it. the program will exit. ?? confused


Hello,

The error you describe, is also mentioned in the Setup Guide for the DP151.
When you connect the Key Chain to the USB port of your computer, on the Key Chain will prompt the message to select: USB charge or USB update.


For proper function of the Chain Key:

0) Before connecting the Chain Key, have the Photo Viewer software installed:
You need adminstrator rights to perform installation of programs.
Install the photo viewer from the CD or download this program
from the Coby support site:
> enter cobyusa.com in the address bar of internet explorer
> enter DP151 in the Product Search bar
now all support for the Chain Key will show
> run the DP151_PhotoViewer zip file directly or save the zip file onto your computer, unzip and run the setup.exe file later

1) Connect the Chain Key and Select USB update on the Chain Key.
Again, to be able to update, you need adminstrator rights.

2) Run the Photo Viewer on the computer.

Computer keeps crashing. i want to be able to transfer my files to an external but now it wont even start


I believe you have some MALWARE installed in your syst. Unplug your unit for 2 min. or so and reboot into safe mode, in this state you may be able to burn your files unto a CD or transfer to USB drive, after that, reboot with your syst disk and perform a destructive restore. You should purchase and use anti-viral software like WebRoot. I hope this helps.

Cant connect wireless


If the stick is the solution, why are you avoiding the solution?

From what you have said, the internal wifi in the Evo doesn't work, while
an external usb stick does.

Assuming that your internal wifi is properly configured and functional, it is
incapable of picking up your home wifi signal, though it might be functional in other situations ... Buying an external usb stick gives you a better antenna position and takes nothing away from your system, while adding functionality and sheilding the innards of your system from viral
attack as a first line of attack that is detachable.

Buy the USB stick.
