    Is this Reliance's laptop or yours? Perhaps it was configured to do just this by its current or last employer? This is also consistent with booting to a guest account in Windows 7. Perhaps you can say a bit more about its provenance and your knowledge of the administrator account (e.g. that you know its password.)

How to organize data on your computer


Organizing data is the best thing that a person can do, who likes to be systematic,professional and clutter free with regards to data.

There is no real meaning in keeping your computer disorganized which would result in malfunctioning and cost you money that you can save if you just organize your data effectively.

The best way to organize the data on your hard disk is as follows:-

Perfect Partitions·

  • First things first, when you install an operating system, for e.g. Windows Xp you get an option for partitioning your drive, make sure you make full use of this option to create as many drives as you feel are appropriate depending on your hard disk capacity.
  • If you want to have 1 partition which is small and the other 3 to be bigger, then you can just reduce the of the first partition which you would use mainly for operating system and installing applications.
  • So for e.g. a 500 GB hard disk can partitioned as 50 GB for operating system or the root drive usually c: drive ,and then the other three drives you can use for bulk storage i.e. 150 each ,which would result in 50GB+150GBx3 = 500GB Hard disk.
After installing the operating system, install only those programs which you use, and are essential for your use.·

  • There is no meaning in installing programs that you don't use often, or don't actually use, for e.g. some people would like to install CorelDraw application , when they are not working on it.· This does nothing but takes up unnecessary space on your hard disk drive which causes the hard disk to slow down or possibly get infected, if the software that has been installed is a pirated one.

Install Anti virus software as soon as you install an operating system

  • This is a prerequisite to make sure that you are safe from virus right from the time that you have your operating system installed. · Most of the time users want to install all the other application besides the anti virus software, this software could be infected by viruses, in case such software are pirated or you install them from a USB drive or a pen drive which has been infected.

Keep updating your anti virus while you use your PC·

  • As viruses are created daily, there is no way out but to keep updating your anti virus software from time to time, as and when they have an update.·
  • Usually the anti virus software is set on auto update mode, so when the time is due, the anti virus would download the latest update automatically, so if you disable auto update feature, it could potentially harm your computer.
Keep your desktop clean to have a nice relaxing look·

Now this depends on personal preferences but it has been observed that those people who fill their desktop with many shortcuts copy files on their desktop instead of a different folder of a hard disk or a different a partition realize that they have not organized their data.

The consequence about the above act is that,when your root drive gets infected by a potential virus, or it gets formatted or loses its data due to a power surge, and you find that you no longer are able to boot your operating system, the only option you have is to format the partition and install the operating system again.

There are ways to recover data but , many users are not experts in recovering data it could cost them much in terms of money when they ask someone for data recovery , but it's always better to be safe than sorry.

Maintain all shortcuts for applications in one folder in your desktop·

  • There are many applications which are usually installed by users, therefore, it is always better to have their shortcuts in one folder to keep the desktop clean and clutter free.
Uninstall the applications that you don't use·

  • This is very crucial, as many people don't liketo uninstall application, but just ignore them despite the fact that they know these application regardless of their are taking up space in their computer's hard disk as well as registry.· Uninstalling such applications helps you to control which programs are useful to you and which aren't.
Hope you enjoy organizing your data.

I go to dl programs and the run and they say there installed but then i look for the file and it dont show up in a file anywhere on my desktop or in in the installed list


Try navigating to C:\program files and check if the program has a folder in there - if it does it should have a file similar to 'myprogram.exe' which you can run. If this works ok, you can right click on the file and send to--> send to desktop as shortcut.

If it doesn't work then the program is not installed correctly and you will need to reinstall it

We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What...


Try this: I found it after doing some searching on the web.

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem (there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below, hopefully at least one should work for you.
The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should then connect within 20-30 seconds.

I downloaded free open office and can see it in my download box but cant see the icon on the desktop so i cant use it, what am i doing wrong? i use a compac presario laptop with windows vista.

If it has been installed it will show up in the search list.
Right Click the icon and a sub menu will appear. From the sub menu hover mouse over "Send To" and options will appear to the right. select "Desktop (create shortcut)".
Desktop icon should now appear from which you can run Open Office.

Congratulations on using Open Source alternative to MS Office!
