    Original title: data recovery

    Is there a program that will allow me to recover programs and files that have been written too by a full system restore?  I had to do a complete system restore, because the computer has been locked up in a start of the closed loop cycle.

    Hi Apmech9,

    1. don't you restore the computer to factory settings?
    2. do you just restore the computer to an earlier time by using the system restore feature in Windows XP?

    If you restore the computer to its factory settings, you will then get in touch with the manufacturer of the system for more support options.

    If you had just restored the computer to an earlier time using System Restore, you can undo the system restore to revert back the changes.

  • wmpkc32.exe and 0xC00D1199 error code when I start Windows Media Player

    Original title: wmpkc32.exe

    I run Windows XP.and my PC shows 0xC00D1199 and wmpkc.exe at different times or places. Are these interdependent? This happens when I want to launch Windows Media Player.


    -Did you change your computer, after which the question began?
    -What version of Windows Media Player do you use?
    -Does the problem occur when you try to read a particular file or type when you launch Windows Media Player?

    wmpkc32.exe process belongs to malware and may violate your privacy. Please, scan your computer and remove potential threats using the Microsoft Safety Scanner.

    Note: You may lose the infected all data by eliminating malware.

    0xC00D1199: cannot play the file

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because:

    1) you try to play a file that is NOT supported by the player.

    2) you try to play a file that the player does not support, but the file was compressed by using a codec that is NOT supported by the player.

    3) the file type is supported, but you try to play in a way that is not supported by the player. For example, you may have attempted to drag a DVD file with a .vob to DVD to Windows Media Player icon.

    I would recommend look you at this article and check if you play the file meets the criteria.

  • Can I save to file or print the global contacts in Thunderbird. Not only the contacts but all contacts that indicate when you start to fill out an address to send to.

    There must be a file somewhere in Thunderbird for all of your communications by e-mail that stores the e-mail addresses of everyone. When you start typing an address you will display a list of people with whom you communicated with in the past. Many of these people are not in your contact/address file. I want to somehow extract this file to Thunderbird.

    You have two default address books. The personal book where you add contacts and the collected book which keeps information for messages that you send.
    So you're looking for the collected address book.
    When you open the address book window, you should have your books listed as folders on the left margin in the directory pane. If the pane is not displayed, select View-Layout and click on.

  • How to download the software on a disc when you use Windows 8, can some please help I tried everything what I am doing wrong?

    I can't download the software disk for other programs that I want to use and Windows 8 is my OS, had no problem to download these same programs with XP and 7, that I am I'm doing wrong can someone please help? Thank you


    You need to provide a little more detail about 'drive '. Generally the software is installed on a disk (usually a CD or DVD) on a hard drive or Solid State Drive.

    Sometimes the software is installed on a hard disk on a hard disk. What you try to do? If you try to install an application on a disk there are a number of possibilities that could be causing your problem.

    If you try to install an application from a disc, the name of the product you want to install, and it's version. If this isn't what you do then you have to be a little more specific on what you're trying to do.
