Turning off messages and savings pictures

I can't find my computer in your limited selection, so here is the computer information on my computer: it is a HP Pavilion Media Center M8100N TV PC, Product #GC673AA-ABA, S/N CXX20198P, Software Build # 73NAV3P4A1, Service # 112-007. Windows Vista, unfortunately, is my operating system. My Problems, so far, are two fold. One- I cannot get the messages disabled because my computer does not give me the option, after hitting PC Help and Tools, after HP Connections. Instead, I get a drop down of: Hardware diagnostic tools; HP Support Information; Recovery disc creation; and Recovery manager. Two- my other problem is that when I load pictures from my digital camera, a Canon Rebel EOS XTI, the pictures go to a program called "photo gallery" as well as to "My Pictures."
Once I am done with the pictures in "photo gallery," I can't delete them from there without deleting them from "My Pictures," also. The only way I can get the pictures to "My Pictures" is to go to the reclyce bin and restore each one individually. There are no instructions for retaining the pictures in "My Pictures, in the manual that came with the computer.

First of all, a recovery disk would be helpful to make for future purposes. so if the backup program open, you might use it.

but if you get tired of the HP software opening--
1.click START-PROGRAMS-STARTUP--- delete any shortcuts here.
2.click start-run- type in "msconfig" when it opens , select the startup tab
uncheck all the boxes of programs you wish not to start when windows starts, click apply, then OK.
restart the computer. when it tells you "you have used the system configurator to change the way windows starts" check the box telling it not to tell you again and click OK.

this will NOT unistall any programs, just sets them to not open untill you manually open them which frees up system resources and make the computer run better.

    When i try to ytyake a picture an error message appears memory card error

    Is that exact what it says? I need more information. What kind of camera is it? I'll try to help with the little information I have:

    I think your memory card is full and needs to be formatted. Select 'Menu' and look for the 'Format' option and select it. Before you select 'Yes' make sure you save any pictures that you might want to keep onto your computer. Because once the memory card is formatted you won't be able retrieve the pictures. It should ask you before formatting your memory card. While it's formatting make sure to keep the camera steady (if it's an older camera the slightest bump could disrupt the formatting process). This should take no more that a minute or two. When it's complete your memory card will be completely wiped clean. You'll now be able to take pictures. If the message appears again repeat the same process.

    Note: When you 'Delete' a picture it doesn't completely leave your memory card. It will continue to take up space until you format your card.

    I suggest formatting your memory card often (or you might miss out on a perfect photo opportunity and have to delete pictures you haven't put on your computer yet).

    I hope this helped,

    My LG enV phone problem

    Wow. Some of you are retards, sorry, but you don't know how this phone works.
    A) Auto-Save if for SENT messages only. If it is on, it will save your sent message in the sent box. if set to off, then it will not show any sent messages. If set to prompt, then it will ask you after the message is successfully sent from your phone to the Verizon network.
    B) Auto-erase is for INBOX only. It will automatically erase the last message in your inbox when it reaches it's max capacity.
    C) The LG EnV can accept up to 4GB of memory. (hollowtech2, you are the ****** i mentioned above, don't pur information you have not confirmed. people will dissprove you, and you will be embarrassed.)
