If you can do a systen restore or see if you can get it to boot into the windows boot screen and see if you can go to original configuration that worked or you are going to have to use the recovery disk if you have one ok best regards mike

Folders missing from mail app


A shared folder is a folder that can be viewed, edited and shared with all users on a single computer or on a shared network on various computers.

Because shared folders are used by various users, someone can accidentally delete or remove the folders from their original locations.

A shared folder can also be altered if unauthorized changes have been made to the folder's structure, resulting in corrupt folder files.

Shared folders can easily be restored in a few simple clicks.
Click on the Windows "Start" button.


Click on the "All Programs" link.
Scroll to find the "Accessories" folder and click on it.


Click on the "System Tools" folder.
Click on the "System Restore" icon.


Click on the "Restore my Computer" option.
Enter the date from where the restoration will begin.

Anything deleted, broken or missing from this date will be restored during the process.
Try to recall when the shared folder was last seen or used by someone and select this date as your start date.

Choose the current date as your end date.
Click "Next" to start the restoration process.

Depending on the time period chosen, this process can take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes.


Check the folder or drive where the shared folder was located prior to disappearing. The shared folder has now been restored.

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it


You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

My laptop sum time log on and sum time does not log on


Depending on the type of operating system that you have, you may have an issue with a user account. One of the first steps is to ensure that your user accounts have the proper passwords and if it is not a password related issue, then you may have a faulty user account.

In the case of a faulty user account,you will have to log in as the administrative account on the computer and delet/recreate the user account that has problems.

If this is happening and there is no other accounts but the administrative account on the computer, then you will have to possibly do a restoral, meaning have the computer go back to a earlier date ( under my computer - right click and go to properties, then click the tab that says (restore or system restore) and restore to an earlier date.
