How can you recover files, folders, software and drivers after reinstalling windows xp family?

original title: How can you recover files, folders, software and drivers after reinstalling windows xp family? Please help, I've lost everything!

When the update Norton Internet Security 2009 to 2011 on reboot, windows cannot open.

Root\systems32\hal.dll Windows prevented windows from opening.  My machine in a Dell dimension 8300.

On a Dell website, I found a method of recovery if you can reinstall windows xp from cd.  I was able to do it, but lost all my files.  How can I recover all my fortune, images, software, drivers, etc.?  There must be a way to extract this information from the hard drive.  Any help is the material and can save my marriage!  Thank you.


Hi MarkS_02127,

Since you've reinstalled windows, you will need to re - install applications once again, you will be lucky (if you format the drive) data on your computer. You remember that location, it was in my documents? If yes it just open C:\Documents and settings and locate your old username, you will find your old desktop, Favorites and Documents.

I hope this helps.

  • How can I download files from HUS and VIP for my Bernina Version 6 software?

    Original title: download embroidery files

    How can I download files from HUS and VIP for my Bernina Version 6 software? Currently, I'm only able to download ART and PES files. (a HUS file extensions) and (a VIP file extensions). I get a message that says "windows cannot open this file, use the web or select the program from a list". I downloaded supposed solutions to problems of conversion and lived to regret it. So, I don't know what I can do to download these special files.

    In your original post, you said you wanted to download files to use with your software Bernina HUS and VIP.

    HUS files are Husqvarna Viking embroidery files.   VIP files also are Husqvarna; Here is the Viking/Pfaff home embroidery Format.

    You have reason to believe that your Bernina embroidery software should be able to use the Husqvarna Viking files?

    On the site, the design of the Dove who has the instructions "Click on the dove to go to the download page for design in .hus format" actually will download a zip compressed file if you click the icon ("").  When you click on an image to download the file, you must select the option to save these files in a location that you will remember and then right click and select "extract" all to join the HUS of the file (not all downloads from this Web site are HUS).

    Once you have the file HUS, you right-click, select open with > choose program, then select your Bernina software in the list (or browse to its location in C:\Program Files).  If you check the box "Always use the selected program to open this type of file" you can double-click on these files in the future.  Of course, it depends on software Bernina being able to recognize the files of HUS.

    VIP files on some comcast getaway site should be handled in the same way.

    Two questions:

    Thank you.


    The image of user account can be removed by disabling the Welcome screen. Or, by opting for the classic Windows theme. Follow the method described in this article, if you want to remove the user name and the picture in the Start Menu, without disabling the Welcome screen and Windows XP theme.

    For those who want to delete the user name and the image of user account from the Start Menu, in order to have a blue white Panel at the top, try this:

    Registry warning
    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

    Step 1:

    a. start Windows Explorer and go to this folder:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account images

    b. in this folder, rename the BMP file that corresponds to your user account.
    (For example, if your user name is Robert, rename Robert.bmp to old_Robert.bmp)

    c. then rename the following folder:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account Pictures\Default pictures
    to something else, for example,.
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account Pictures\No_Default images.

    Step 2:
    To remove the user name, follow these steps

    a. Click Start, click "RUN" and type "regedit.exe" and navigate to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-Windows Microsoft\------CurrentVersion-policies-Explorer

    b. in the right pane, the value NoUserNameInStartMenu-value data 1.

    c. close Regedit.exe and restart Windows.

    You'll find yourself with a blue area at the top of the Start Menu.

    Regarding the pressing 'F1' to start Windows, you have made no changes or was there a system crash after which the problem started?

    You may need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS to the default settings. I recommend you contact your PC vendor for this.

    Warning of the BIOS:
    BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
