try use "Windows PE" or "Vista PE" cd to check your system.. other wise you can also use it to backup your files and reformat your PC.. or you can also no need think so much.. just reformat your pc directly.. its up to you..

I wanna know my boyfriend's yahoo password coz i know he's doing something bad behind my back. I already caught him chatting with some other guy in YM. Please help me thnx


If you already caught him cheating, why would you have any doubts? More importantly, why would you think so little of yourself to allow him the opportunity to do it again? If you don't have trust, you don't have a relationship. My advice, do better because you can!

I dont know how to make background on my usb please help me.


These instructions will make your flash disk more "personalized". You can use any picture you want.
The end result will be viewable from any pc you plug your flash disk into. You only need notepad to code it.

Then you can show off anywhere
HERE ARE THE 4 STEPS YOU SHOULD REMEMBER

STEP 1

Preparing the Picture

Of course, you must have a flash disk to do this. Once you plugged in the flash disk and open it via explorer, make a folder named "background" or whatever name you want. Then, put any picture you want in that folder, but you should remember the folder and the picture's name. Right click at the folder, then open properties. Check the box beside "hidden" to make it unseen, and making your flash disk neat. You can place the picture you want to use in any folder you want, even existing folder. The only difference is the coding of the desktop.ini file at the next step.

STEP 2

Coding the background.ini


Now right click anywhere in the flash disk, (not in the folder you've just created) and open a New Text Document. Just ignore the new document's name because it will be deleted later. Open it using notepad and use theese code for the template:


[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=background\2.jpg
IconArea_Text=0xFFFFFF

[.ShellClassInfo]
ConfirmFileOp=0
IconFile=%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll
IconIndex=43
IconFileOld=%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll
IconIndexOld=43

Then save it as Desktop.ini and delete the old New Text Document.txt
other filenames will not work.
See picture for notes on editing the code.

Then you're done!


You're done. You can show off at your school's computer lab, in your friend

Memory card need to reformat but pics still not save


In that case, there is a possibility that your memory card was damage already.why?
because when the memory card was reformatted all the saved files will be deleted.
since, you already tried to reformat it and still pic is not saved then the problem must be your memory card. I think you should buy for a new one, but try to reformat it again.

Icon background in Windows XP 2


It looks like a custom view for a music folder. Try right-clicking on the folder in Windows Explorer, then select the 3rd tab, "Customize", and change your folder type.

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..!!
