    I can't find Ntbackup.msi anywhere on my XP Pro Installation CD with 'Search Hidden Files and Subfolders' but I did download it from a web site I find when I did a Google search. I successfully ran the installation file but it didn't fix the problem.

You may need to re install it............
Using your Windows CD :
To manually install Backup: 1. Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM to start a wizard that installs Backup: CD-ROM Drive:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP 2. When the wizard is complete, click Finish.

Chrome will not open


Harvey,
You could try this:

-first, delete your current installation of Chrome,

-then, open Windows Explorer, and depending on your operating system, go to: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
for Windows XP

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
for Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8

-Go to the folder "Default" and rename this folder to "Backup Default".

-Now download and install Chrome again.

-Start it up. There should be a new folder "Default", created when you started using the browser.
If you value the data in your old profile: you can try copying them from the backup folder to the new profile, but some of it may be corrupted.
But at least your Bookmarks are not lost:
-go to the "Backup Default" folder, and -locate the "Bookmarks.bak" file. -copy it to the "Default" folder, and -rename it "Bookmarks". All the other old browser data is preserved in the "Backup default" folder, but transfering it to your "Default" folder may corrupt Chrome. Tread carefully, if at all..

Acer ERecovery Service is Not Available


What is the ERecovery Service?
On Acer Computers there is a floating toolbar on the desktop called the Acer Empowering Technology program. Within this program there is the ERecovery Service that allows a user to create backup operating system disks, create a backup of the current system, and more. This is a very handy feature because in many cases the computer does not come with a set of backup disks.

The icon for the ERecovery service looks like this one:

erecoveryicon.jpg

If you dont see this icon on the Empowering Technology bar then the application is not installed and will not be available.

How to Open ERecovery Service

There are three ways to access the ERecovery Service.

  1. Press ALT-F10 when the computer is first turned on. If you see the Windows XP or Vista splash screen you've waited too long and will have to shut the computer down and try it again.
  2. Find the ERecovery Service icon on the Acer floating toolbar and click it.
  3. Click on Start, All Programs, Acer Empowering Technology, and click on the icon for Acer ERecovery Management.
Downgrading from Vista to XP - "ERecovery Service is Not Available"

On many Acer models, the computer is preinstalled with Windows Vista, but it comes with a set of Windows XP Professional disks that allow you to uninstall Vista and reinstall Windows XP. Unfortunately, the hidden partition (PQService) that enables the ERecovery feature remains with a Windows Vista image. So, after the reinstallation of Windows XP, the Erecovery service is not available and you'll see a screen similar to the one below when you try to access it from within Windows.







25f31d0.jpg


You can still access the ERecovery Service using the Alt-F10 trick when the computer first starting booting, but you'll be disappointed to see the Windows Vista OS instead of Windows XP . Dont proceed with the ERecovery at this point unless you want to restore the system back to Vista.

Less than 15% of available space on "H"drive on HP dv9000 laptop


Windows may have filled your H:Drive with System Restore Points.

FOR WINDOWS XP:
By Default, Windows will save your System Restore Files on both Partitions of your Hard Drive. Right Click on My Computer and click Properties. (Or go to Control Panel and double-click the System icon)

Click the System Restore Tab at the top of the Window that pops up. In that box in the middle should be a listing of the C: and H: Drive. Click the H: Drive to highlight it and Click the Settings button.

Screenshot: http://technophobik.co.uk/vxp_control_panel/s005_sys_prop_system_restore.asp

On the next Window click the box that says: Turn off System Restore for this Drive. This will stop putting System Restore points on the H:Drive and it will also remove the System Restore Points already saved to the H:Drive.

FOR VISTA:

Click Start and then right click Computer and click Properties. Or in the Start menu, click Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View. Then double click the System icon and on the left hand side again, click Advance System Settings.

Click the System Protection tab at the top of the box. The uncheck the box beside the H:Drive in the box under Automatic Restore Points.


If Windows tried to perform an automatic backup:

The Recovery Files should be hidden on your recovery partition H:. At the top of the screen in the H:Drive click Tools > Folder Options

Click the View Tab and go down the list of Advance Options and clcik in the circle to "Show Hidden Files and Folders"

If you computer used the WIndows Backup and Restore to backup files, look for a Folder Named PC-"Your WIndows User Name", with the name of your Windows Login after the PC-

If you don't see that folder, don't delete anything else.

If you do see that folder you can delete it You can open that folder and see the files that were stored. That is the backup Windows created and by default the Windows Back Up and Restore program likes to choose the first partition that is not the C:Windows partition. Do Not Delete anything else.

You can go to your Program Files in the Start Menu and go to the Windows Backup and Restore and in the options change the backup location to somewhere else, or turn off the automatic backup feature.

Don't use the partition set aside for the recovery for anything else or save data there.

Error copying file or folder


One of the most important yet overlooked elements of PC maintenance is data backup. If you do not perform regular backups, chances are your productivity will eventually suffer from data losses or a failed Windows installation.

All versions of Windows after 3.1 ship with a free backup utility called Microsoft Backup. It is not the best backup program available, but it may be sufficient for your needs. (Backup is better in later versions of Windows. Microsoft recommends Win98/Me users purchase a third-party utility.) If you want more control over your backups, consider purchasing a third-party program.

Backup is part of the System Tools utility. However, Setup does not install it by default in Win98/Me/XP Home. If you cannot locate Backup, visit the Microsoft support site and query for article No. 152561 (Win98), No. 264541 (WinMe), or No. 302894 (WinXP Home).

In Win98/Me, click Start, select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Backup. To create and run a backup, click the Create A New Backup Job radio button and click OK. Follow the prompts to create a full or partial backup. If you want to create a backup set and run it later or run an existing backup set, open Backup and click the Open An Existing Backup Job radio button and click OK. You can now access the main Backup dialog box.

In Win2000/XP, navigate to the System Tools utility and select Backup. Click the Backup Wizard button. If you do not see a Backup Wizard button, click the Welcome tab. In WinXP, the wizard will start automatically if you are in wizard mode. Follow the prompts to create your backup set.

When you reach the last dialog box, Completing The Backup Wizard, you can click the Advanced button to create a backup schedule (this option is not available in Win98/Me). When you reach the When To Back Up dialog box, select the Later radio button and click the Set Schedule button. Perform data backups on a schedule that is appropriate to the importance of your files (once a week is a common timeframe). You should also perform a system backup at least once a month.

If you do not want to use the wizard, or you are working with an existing backup, open Backup and click the Backup tab to access the main Backup dialog box.
