Corrupted user profile

I have a corrupt user profile.  Windows XP. When I add a new can be the same, or should be different.  And the user's profile should match the user ID?

If the profile has recently become corrupted, you can probably get the same user by performing a system restore operation:

Otherwise, you will need to create another user and copy your data.  The simplest procedure is here:

    How do you disconnect hotmail in windows 8 (when you dream in on email on the main screen icon)?

    I found a solution but it takes several steps, and the average user will never know how do it.

    (1) when your Hotmail account is opened in Windows 8 press the keyboard windows key and the letter 'I' at the same time.

    2.) on the side right under, click "Accounts" "settings".

    3.), click your Hotmail account that will accomplish.

    4.) downstairs there is a box "Remove all accounts" click it. Don't worry, this does not remove your Hotmail account or any account, it's just signs than you. You have to click on the box twice that a notification saying your data will be always preserved in the clouds.

    5.) go back and check the mail application, now you will be asked to you "try again" and it takes back you to the login section.

    Phew, both pis Microsoft na not happen to a better solution. As I said, I see a lot of prosecutions and a lot of divorces because of this.

  • Windows XP does not start. Can I boot Windows from a disk so that I can recover the data?

    Windows XP does not start. Can I boot Windows from a disk so that I can recover the data? This should be a CD because it doesn't have a floppy disk on my laptop drive. It is maybe that my hard drive has begun to fail and therefore cannot locate XP startup files. I can not start using one of the other methods of starting for example. Safe mode. If I can recover the data, I can then reload Windows and check the surface of the disc etc etc. Thank you all for your comments. Steve

    Lately, I'm leaning toward the Hiren's BootCD you can download here:

    http://www.hirensbootcd.NET/

    On the left, click on download, scroll down, choose the most recent version

    The download link is a little hard to see.  It is at the bottom of the page, above the drop for older versions and looks like this (click this component to download the ZIP file):

    Direct HTTP mirror + Torrent, Torrent Magnet

    Click the "Live HTTP Mirror" link to start the download and save the ZIP file on your desktop of somewhere that you can remember.

    The ZIP file is large, so the download will take probably some time to complete.  Then unzip the download to extract theHirens.BootCD.ISO file that will be used to create your new bootable CD.

    Create a bootable CD. ISO file is not the same as simply copying the. File ISO onto a blank CD.  You must use software that includes how to burn a. ISO to a CD to create a bootable CD.

    File ZIP the Hiren is the file BurnToCD.cmd that you can double-click to launch it.  The BurnToCD.cmd will use the file BurnCDCC.exe to burn the. ISO file onto a blank CD using your existing CD burner.  You can also use your own burning software as long as your software is able to create a bootable CD. ISO file.  More modern burning programs can create a bootable CD. ISO image.  Create a CD from an ISO image bootable is not the same as just the file on a CD burning.

    If you need a simple and CD burning, this is a free software popular software:

    Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:

    It would be a good idea to test your new bootable CD on a computer running.

    You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.
    These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

    When starting on the Hiren's CD, you will see a menu of options.  Choose Mini XP.

    It will appear while Windows is loading and you will be presented with a desktop computer that has the look and feel of the interface of Windows Explorer, you are already accustomed to using.  You will feel at home.

    Using the Mini XP, you can access the Internet, maneuver around your system, copy files, replace the files, run the scans for malware, etc.  There are dozens of free and useful tools included in the CD that can be used to repair your system, or copy files to another device such as a USB device or an external drive if drop in trying to repair your system.

    If you want to see if you can fix your system, describe what is happening when you try to start and to answer these questions:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, MSE, Comodo, etc..

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

  • How can I boot from the Windows 7 Installation CD so that I can reformat the hard drive before reinstalling Windows 7?

    How can I boot from the Windows 7 Installation CD so that I can reformat the hard drive before reinstalling Windows 7?  I have already reinstalled Windows 7 from the CD, but that has not solved my problems.  When I put the factory CD in my CD player, it won't always boot from the CD.  When I put my Windows 7 Ultimate CD in the CD drive, it doesn't always start from the CD.         I realize that the reformatting is not always necessary, but I caught a few viruses (despite anti-virus running) and I need to start with a clean hard drive.

    You must go into the BIOS and change the boot on CD order
    first push.

    How to get into your BIOS? It is not dependent on Windows, but on what he
    motherboard/BIOS card that you have. In fact, you need access to the
    BIOS before Windows begins to start. A common method is to press
    the key delete when you turn on first, but this is not necessarily true
    for your computer. Watch the display carefully when you start first;
    There is often a message here to tell you what to do. If this is not the case, check
    your system documentation or check with your provider.

  • My Windows Live Mail is sorted in alphabetical order by family name, but now, when I add a new contact, it is positioned at the top of the list instead being placed in the right place alphabetical.

    My direct mail is sorted in alphabetical order by family name, but now, when I add a new contact, it is positioned at the top of the list instead being placed in the right place alphabetical.  How to load the list of contacts to organize all contacts, including contacts, in alphabetical order by family name?

    E-mail address is removed from the privacy *.

    My direct mail is sorted in alphabetical order by family name,

    It is not clear what you mean by this statement.

    • There is an option in the contacts window in kind (names) of > name -is that what you mean?
    • Or that, when you open / switch to the contacts window, you see a list sorted by last name?
    • Or that when you click on to... or start typing in the to... box in a message composition window, you see a list ('contact selector') sorted by family name?

    Only in contact with an e-mail address will appear in the "Chooser". The list includes names in alphabetical order. For contacts with a first name and a registered name , the list will be sorted based on the preference granted to sort by in the Contacts window. Contacts with multiple email addresses will appear once for each address with the address in brackets after the name.

    Name is a special value built by WLMail contact data fields. It will consist of the first match found during the analysis of the data fields in the following order:

    1. Nickname
    2. First name + last name (in the order specified to sort by in the Contacts window)
    3. First name or last name
    4. Company
    5. E-mail address
    As you start typing in of... box, WLMail will present a list of matching entries in your contacts list. You can start typing username, first name, first name, company, e-mail address to a contact or any significant word in the Notes field for this contact. So, if you type bil, for example, the list that appears will include
    • any person whose nickname starts with Bil, e.g. Billyboy
    • any person whose first name begins with Bil, e.g. of Bilbo Baggins
    • anyone whose first name begins with Bil, for example Jim Bilko
    • everyone whose company name starts with Bil, e.g. Billingsgate Market
    • everyone with an address of e-mail from bil bil or just after a period or the ' @' symbol, for example "the bilbo at hotmail dot com" or "jim to billingsgate dot com" or "jim.bilko at hotmail dot com.
    • all categories whose name contains a word starting with bil

  • How can I not have a genuine copy of windows 7 when I installed it on an official record?

    I installed windows 7 on my computer a while ago and it was working fine. Until today, when I turned on my computer and a message popped up saying that I don't have a copy genuine windows 7. Even if I had the drive official windows 7 when I bought my desktop computer. Nothing else was wrong with my computer until now and my anti-virus has not picked up something, so the problem is only with windows 7.

    If anyone can help it would be appreciated.

    It seems more than one fault on behalf of windows that it wasn't something accompanying advising me of what I could / could not do with the disc.


    It is in the end user license agreement you accepted when you installed.
    I suspect that you used a Dell OEM recovery disk to install. This drive works only on dell computers that he intended. It will not work on a Toshiba.
    Your bios has a marker for windows 7. Windows has not released to manufacturing until end of July 2009. The only way the bios of your computer may have a windows 7 marker is programmatically loading of pirates.
    Except for the family pack, it is licensed per computer.

  • Windows 7 Home premium network problem, computers can access the internet, but they do not see each other on the network

    I was trying to set up a homegroup on my main computer, but on the second computer, I never had the opportunity to join the homegroup. I'm sure that I have everything set up properly, but I can't get the second computer to join.

    I have a switch that my internet runs and a cat cable goes to each computer. Each computer can access the internet without any problem, but none appear in other network list. They have the same name of working group, I just can't understand it. I use Windows Firewall.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe this can help.

    ----------------------

    Win7 when configured on the peer-to-peer network has three types of configurations of sharing.

    Group residential network = only works between Win 7 computers. This type of configuration, it is very easy to entry level users to start sharing network.

    Working network = fundamentally similar to previous methods of sharing that allow you to control what, how and to whom the records would be shared with.

    Public share
    = network Public (as Internet Café) in order to reduce security risks.

    For the best newspaper of the results of each computer screen system and together all computers on a network of the same name, while each computer has its own unique name.

    http://www.ezlan.NET/Win7/net_name.jpg

    Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

    General example, http://www.ezlan.net/faq.html#trusted
    Please note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .

    If your network consists only of Win 7 and you want a simple network, use it.

  • all minized firefox windows open when I open a new window

    I have several firefox windows open and kept to a minimum. When I try to open a new window in firefox, all minimized windows full and are displayed. I am running firefox 8. How can I fix it so that the minimized window is reduced when I open a new window?

    Under Windows XP.

    This problem may be caused by an extension that does not work properly (possibly Ask.com toolbar).

    Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > appearance/themes).

  • There was a 'new window' and a 'new tab' icon that can be slid into the window customize toolbar. In 7 &amp; 8, there is always a 'new window' icon but there is no new tab icon is located to customize. Where can I add a 'new tab' to the toolbar?

    bold text This feature existed before Firefox 7, but now it can not be found.

    You can find the button new tab showing as a '+' on the tab bar.

    You can open the window customize and drag the button new tab that indicates that a sign plus bar tabs on another toolbar and it will become a regular tools like the new button bar button tab you have in versions of Firefox 3.

    If you can not find the new button tab then click the button 'Restore Default Set' in the window customize.
