Hi, please help me to fix the problem, before I get caught by my elder brother. It is actually a desktop PC belonging to my elder brother, which is running on XP operating system and I tried to use it during his absence.

Everything was OK and a message appeared in the taskbar, to update the Windows component while I was browsing on the internet. I pressed it by mistake and restarted the PC which was required by the updating process.

The problem is in file sharing system. From his laptop (Win 7) he can access my files (XP) in the share folder.

All the experts here, I need your kind attention to solve my problem. I am running Windows XP Service Pack 2 and very comfortable with this version.

Recently my PC was infected by a Trojan horse virus.

My antivirus successfully caught the virus and was able to delete it.

But after restarting the PC I can’t access my user account and a message box telling me that windows can’t find the local profile.

I was happy with the XP operating system in my HP Pavilion notebook. Few days ago I have seen Windows 7 in my friend’s laptop.

I was amazed by the outlook of Win 7 and decided to install it in my notebook.

Finally,I bought a copy and installed it. For a first couple of days it was ok but I am having a little but weird problem with the desktop gadget now.

The gadgets don’t appear properly.

For example,a blank calendar without date or sometimes all the gadgets just vanished.

How to repair it?

I have got a huge collection of music videos and movies, and recently I have decided to move some files in other drive to free up some space in my older drive. But I can’t copy some of the files.

There is an error message appears after copying some part of the file saying data redundancy error.

cyclr redundency error

Error Copying File or Folder

Cannot copy Freedom; Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

I don’t think my hard drive is faulty because I have checked the drive, but no error was found. Is these files are corrupted?

Do you know any process to get back the files?

I am running a training center for over two years. To provide lectures, I have been using a projector with my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop.

The projector was fine and never having any disturb. Last week I have replaced the operating system on my laptop with Windows 7 which was running on XP previously. After then my projector is not working and I can’t see any display. I have applied all the previous key options but getting no display. I have checked the video driver which looks fine. I can ensure you that there is nothing wrong with the projector because it works fine with other computers.

Currently I am having serious problem with my lecture period. Please experts, give me a solution as early as possible.

I have never faced such kind of wired problems.

I am running windows XP on my desktop pc and there four partitions on the hard disk.

In my F drive I can’t modify such as delete, rename or cut any files or data but can copy file to the other drive. 

When I press the delete button to delete any files it’s showing an access denied message.

I am having no problems in the other partition. Is this a very bad sign for my hard disk?

Is it going to crash within a short period of time?

What to do?

Should I replace the hard disk?

Please help me to get back my hidden folders. My desktop PC was attacked by a spyware which was running on Windows XP, and I was able to remove the virus by installing the free version of Avast antivirus.

Every installed program is running well, but the folder option from tools menu has vanished.

Now I can’t access my hidden folders in drive C. The only way I know to get back the folder option is by reinstalling the operation system.

If I do reinstall the OS then I must loose the hidden folders.

So, I can’t do that. Do you know any other way to retrieve my hidden folders?
