Why does this phone freeze so often?


Some apps that you've downloaded are stored on your SD card, and so are some of the spam that they leave for you. You may need to back up your memory card for the things that you need like videos, music, and pictures. Then delete everything else and reformat your SD card as well.

My flip camera says its empty but when I try to record it says its full??


Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.

If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.

From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC (you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from the card while it's in the camera.

Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full functionality of your memory card.


thanks.

There are two folder namely desktop.ini, desktop.ini automatically appeared in the desktop. I scan my computer using Microsoft security Analysis but these folders are not moved or deleted from the desktop....


This must be a worm that replicates files/folders. As we all know, desktop.ini is not a folder, it's a system file which can be opened with Notepad.

What antivirus were you using to scan your computer? This worm/s can be easily detected and deleted/repaired by avg free (click here to download avg free). [open the link and click green "Download" button]

Download and install the Avg Free. Run a full system scan and check the result. That will fix the issue related to your desktop.ini folder etc..etc..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Problem on 3 operating sys after reformatting


This is a common annoyance some people has encounter after reinstalling Windows.
The problem is that everytime you turn your computer ON, or restart it, you have a list of Windows you can boot from....even though you "know" there is only one.
First of all look into the BOOT.INI file, and make sure you kmow the version that is currently active.
You can safely delete the other two.
Next time you reboot, your computer should start as usual.

PS
To bring up the BOOT.INI
Go to Run, and type CMD, press Enter
at the end of the string type: cd"space".. (two dots)
Keep doing this until you get to C:/
now type BOOT.INI

A notepad document will open, and you'll see all the options you see at boot up.
Just delete the ones you know you don;t need, and save that notepad document.

Restart your pc, and that is all..!!

What is this?


first install some good antivirus ...
in some files by the name desktop.ini there will be virus called trojan ...
the trojan virus behavior is like that only whichever memory device you insert into your PC just like pen drive,ipod, mobile,memory card etc all the memory device will be affected by this virus so there will be a named desktop.ini ..... inside the system also it keeps multiplying whenever you execute a task inside which that file is present...if you burn any cd or dvd also you will get this file but it will be most probably hidden in both hard disk & in all other memory devices.... this is the behavior of trojan ...

so better you install one good antivirus & let the antivirus detect it & delete them all ....
if possible try giving the search with that filename for all of your hard disk drives & if it searches then delete them all ...(but it will not detect all the files in the hard disk) so it is better to install the antivirus only ...

once you delete all the files there will no problems like slow down of your operating systems etc ....

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

Vga driver


If you know what the name of the generic vga driver that's missing, you can start the computer in MS-DOS mode (if I recall correctly, you can do that in win98), then edit the boot.ini and add it in. If not, you're out of luck and need the Windows 98 CD. Since you already own a license of Windows 98, it should be legal for you to download a copy (but I'm not a legal expert and this is not legal advice).
