Many programs of control panel and properties not working


You seem to have a bad one there and only 3 of th following could be the cause:

1.) Virus infection. Your PC has been infected with a vicious virus, that has spread on everything that you have beed running. This includes programs, partitions, external devices like memory sticks and hard drives. The virus renderes the system unusable thus none of your applications want to open. In my honest opinion, your hard drive needs to be removed from your machine and scanned on a machine that has a good updated anti-virus installed that can find and take of all the viruses. You might consider doing a re-installation of your operating system

2.) Hard Drive defect. Your hard drive might be broken thus many files that lie on the broken areas on your hard drive might be rendered corrupt and thus they don't open. In this case, a bootable hard drive test can reveal if you have bad sectors or other faults which might case this.

3.) Operating system corrupt. Due to loads of installations, file moving, deleting and re-installing new software, copying new data, browsing the web, unscheduled shut-downs, no regular maintainance and cleanups, your system has rendered itself unusable. In this case, download high rated "Operating system maintainace tools" like a Disk Defragmenter, A Registry Repair and Cleanup tool, a Performance Tune-up Program and other useful utilities. What you might ned to do is to run a check disk before you run all those programs on your hard drive. To do this, open command prompt with run (type cmd into run and press enter), then type "chkdsk /r C:" without the quotes. Confirm prompt questions with "Y" or "Yes" and reboot your machine. A check disk will run and when it is done it will restart your machine again then goes into windows normally.

I can't transfer any files to my local disk from my desktop..?? i wonder whats wrong???

Too many reason why we can't transfer files from drive to drive or drive to other external drive.

* the folder or files infected by some virus and automatically stop in the middle of copying. All you have to do is choose MY COMPUTER>ORGANIZE>FOLDER AND SEARCH OPTION>CLICK SHOW HIDDEN FILES/FOLDERS/DRIVE. Now , all hidden virus or files are shown, choose the exact files you need to copy and paste.
* the hard drive are possible damaged or bad sectors infected. Try to make more partition drive and continue copy and paste procedure. We try this part to find the part of the drive not yet damaged by bad sectors.

I am unable to repair the windows as some of the files got miss, my security centre is also in off stage only. unable to turn on it. how to resume recovery manager in its original state

Did your PC come with recovery CDs? If not, did you back up your recovery partition to DVDs/CDs when you purchased the PC? If your answer is no to both, then your only option is to use the recovery manager to recover from the recovery partition in your hard drive. The only snag here is that if the initial problem was due to virus, this recovery partition will most likely have been infected with the virus/viruses and may not work well again. But if you have your DVDsCDs then you are home and dry. Just slot in the recovery DVD/CD and restart the system and simply follow the onscreen instructions. Really, it is a piece of cake.

I cant identify the prolem

It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..

2nd partition disk drive D: is not accessible

Several brands now have the recovery software and backup of your computer on the D: partition.

You probably have XP (Vista doesn't try to stop you from viewing the contents of the drive). I would recommend using a 3rd party explorer clone to move the music files back to the C: and leave that partition alone. Also if you have not made your recovery discs yet do so before messing with the recovery partition.

On an HP or Compaq the recovery disc manager can be found under HP or under PC Help & Tools in the start menu.
