Download something, (maybe search for a photo through google images) when you find something click on save as, then look to see where it is going to save, that should show you where your download folder is hiding, you can also do a windows search, click on start (search) and type in something that you know you have downloaded that should take you tot the hidden download folder,

Welcome to FixYa!

If you are using Windows XP, the "Downloads" folder can also be found inside "My Documents" folder.
The Downloads folder that you see in My Computer is just a shortcut leading to
"My Documents/downloads/".

Thank you for using FixYa!
Have a nice day.

Problem with Virus and Spyware can't login in windows


Hi

All

problem logging in windows because of virus of spy wares, just do the following to remove all virus and spyware from your machine.
Case -1 System very slow because of virus and malwares.

In an uninfected system open the following link

http://www.sophos.com/support/disinfection/pedis.html

page%201.jpg



251427a.jpg


Click on the emergency copy of sav32cli marked in red as shown in the above image.

Save in a new folder and name the folder as sav32.

You have a zip file with the name sav32cli in a sav32 folder. Extract all files in that particular folder.

Now on the same page click the relevant ides marked in red as shown in the figure below. 3547d01.jpg

Download the latest ides in sav32 folder and extract in that folder.

Burn the entire folder on a disk.


In the infected computer boot your system in safe mode with command prompt and insert the disk.

Lets consider G drive as your dvd drive

In the command prompt
c:\g:
g:\cd sav32<enter>
g:\sav32\<capslockon>SAV32CLI<SPACE>-REMOVE<SPACE> -P=C:\LOGFILE.TXT<ENTER>

This command starts examinig each and every file in the system and removes all virus. As this antivirus detects a virus or malware press A key.

Sit back and enjoy.


Case - 2 In case your system hangs at startup and cannot enter safe mode. Boot your system with a dos bootable pen drive or floppy and perform the same steps.

I own microsoft office 2007 how can I download it onto my new hp mini110 which has no cd slot


"I have a netbook with no optical drive. How can I install Microsoft Office? A friend says I have to either buy Office as a download from Microsoft or get an illegal download - don't like either of those options. " Charles C from Iowa among many have asked this question.
There are several options for installing software onto a computer with no CD / DVD drive. We'll focus on Microsoft Office (as usual) but the same techniques can be used for almost any programs.
All these suggestion boil down to a simple truth - you can copy the contents of the Microsoft Office install disk to a folder which can be accessed from the netbook.
We have plenty of other netbooks on Office tips in our feature: Using Office on Netbook computers. Like this article, our feature was written on a netbook computer, so the advice is from hard personal experience.
Install disks are NOT that special There was a time when install disks were specially made so you could not copy them easily but those disks are rare these days. The installation files for Microsoft Office can be copied just like other files.
What really matters is the Product Key that's supplied with your purchase - it's that 25 character key which allows Microsoft Office to work normally. See What happens if your product key is stolen?
USB memory stick The easiest option is to copy the entire contents of the install CD to a USB memory stick or portable drive then plug that 'key' into the netbook.
Make a folder on the USB drive called, for example, Office 2007 Standard install.
Then copy the whole CD/DVD (sub-folders and all) with the root folder of the install disk copied to the new folder on the USB drive.
904-office%20install%20disk%20copied%20to%20folder%20on%20removable%20drive.jpg
Office install disk copied to folder on removable drive
When you plug the USB drive into the netbook, navigate to the install folder (ie what was the root folder of the original CD/DVD).
Double-click the setup program or right-click autorun and choose Install. This will start the install process just as it would from the CD/DVD.
Share a CD/DVD drive On a Windows network, any drive can be shared and 'seen' across the network by other authorized computers.
Go to the desktop computer, right-click on the CD/DVD drive and select Sharing (the exact menu wording depends on your version of Windows) then share the drive with appropriate permissions.
On the netbook computer, go to the Network option on the Start menu. Navigate to the desktop computer then the shared CD/DVD drive. You can then see the contents of the install disk, click on setup or autorun (as above) and the installation will begin.
Apple promoted a 'special' remote CD feature when they released the Macbook Air. It was hailed in many quarters as a wonderful innovation, despite the fact that Windows users have been able to do the same thing for years.
Copy to netbook across the network If setting up the CD/DVD as a network share doesn't suit, you can simply copy the install disk contents to a new folder on a desktop hard drive which is shared and accessible from the netbook.
On a Vista desktop machine the easiest option is copying to one of the 'Public' folders then make sure those folders are shared with the local network. The netbook computer can 'see' that shared folder on the desktop machine and you can install from there.
Alternatively, copy from the desktop CD/DVD to the netbook computer. Make some folders on the netbook shared with write permissions then open Explorer on the desktop computer navigate to the shared folders on the netbook. Copy the contents of the install CD/DVD from the desktop computer to the shared folder on the netbook. Install from the netbook folder.
Plug in a CD/DVD drive There are plenty of cheap USB CD/DVD drives available which you can buy to plug into your netbook. However, as you can see, there is usually no need because you can access an optical drive from a desktop computer via the local network.
Repairing Office In the olden days (ie a decade ago) if Microsoft Office had problems you'd have to dig out the install CD and reinstall.
For the last few versions of Office (Office 2007 and Office 2003 at least) that's rarely necessary. When Office is installed a copy of the key installation files is put in a hidden folder - if (when) Microsoft Office has a little nervy an auto-repair system should start and restore files from the source. Re-using the install disk is less common these days.

I have reinstalled windows, i need the ethernet and sound drivers for this pc. would it be possible to send a link to download them to a disk?


Download the drivers to the computer you are using. Then burn them to a CD disk.

When you go to download the drivers, Note where they are going First. Write the name of the driver file down. Then look to see where it is going to be downloaded to.

See if it is going to your My Documents folder, (Documents in Vista)
(Start > My Documents for WinXP)
It may go to a sub-folder within the My Documents folder. Downloads.
Double-click on Downloads to see.

It may go directly to your desktop screen.
Have a fresh CD disk in the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Right-click on the file name when you see it.
Left-click on Copy.

Then click on Copy to CD, or the name of your optical drive.

Windows running on the Systemax computer, put the CD with the drivers in it's optical drive.
Go to My Computer.
(Start > My Computer)
Left-click on My Computer.
Now double-click on the optical drive name (Letter. Example; (D:) drive)
Then double-click on the name of the Ethernet driver file.

The Installation Wizard should come up, and lead you through installing.
(Essentially click on Next, Next, and Finish)

Restart your Systemax computer.
Go through the process again to install the Audio (Sound) file.

This is Systemax Support > Downloads,

I can't log into skype. I keep getting Disk I/O error message.


You need to delete the folder that holds your account information for Skype.
I can be found in: C:\Documents and Settings\<winuser>\Application Data\Skype\<skypename> for XP or, C:\Users\<winuser>\AppData\Roaming\Skype\<skypename> for Vista

I just deleted any user account folder I saw, reopened, logged in...worked fine.
