Process are not hidden files but a file that is being runned by windows. Antivirus can't delete a process because Windows is using the file. Did Avast detect the process as a danger? If not then don't worry about them.

If your sound icon isn't in the tasbar tray. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sound. Here should have check box for volume control icon. Check the box if its uncheck to get the volume icon.

Hope this helps.

Show hidden files


to unhide file extensions to see what you have in XP open my computer (or windows explorer) Tools/Folder Options/View change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

to unhide file extensions in win7, vista go to my computer (or windows explorer) Organize/folder and search options/view change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

In win8 I'm not sure how to get to it unless you change to show classic view somehow

Tip

Change The Default Location For Installing Apps


 As the size of hardrives increase, more people are using partitions to seperate and store groups of files.
XP uses the C:\Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are installed. However, you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.

Run the Registry Editor (regedit)and go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir. by default,this value will be C:\Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder and XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.

Plz tell me how i can run c++ in full screen in vista ultimate


Hello

Use the command prompt. Maximize the window size. Change directory to c:. You will have a line that fits 75 characters and a window that occupies about 2/3 of the whole window. That's enough fore all reasonable problems. If you are not happy with what you get, you may try developping your C++ program under Linux.

Hope it helps

Hidden files and folder not show.


Most likely, you either have a virus or a domain policy restricting the viewing of hidden files.

Here's an easy fix:
1) Go to Start>Run
2) Type "regedit" and click "OK"
3) Expand to HK_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advanced
4) Select the value on the right named "Hidden". Right-click and "Modify".
5) On most virus/policy restricted computers, it will have a value of 2, which it shouldn't because it should only be 0 or 1. Change the value to "1" and click "OK".
6) Refresh whatever window you were working in, and it should show you all the hidden files. It will show for all your windows after that until you go to options to change it.
