I have a problem with access to the C drive.

Original title: lost access to the C: drive...

When I was a noob after installing a new HARD drive, I have written an autorun.inf file to my C: drive to make it look cool (you know, give it a cool name, and change the icon). I was not allowed to save .inf in the root files, so I decided to open the properties and tinkering with security... when I turned on my computer later, I now do not have access to the c drive, and cannot do anything administrative (including rear safety switching)

Please, please help!

    I have a problem of access to the Outlook account and other pages because appears "certificate error" what's happened with these certificates? Help please.

    There are two main reasons for the mistakes of certificate:

    1. Your computer's time is not set correctly.  Check your time year/month/day/hour/minute/timezone/light of day.  Right-click on the clock in your taskbar and select "set Date/time" and make sure you are ready approximately 5 minutes of real time (don't forget time zone and DST).
    2. The second reason is that Windows XP is not very good for updating root certificates.  Go to the following site:

  • Problems with access to the internet - suspected hardware conflict (IP address)?


    I wonder if you could help out me?

    I have problems with internet access on a wireless router with what appears to be a conflict between three different pieces of equipment.

    I have a laptop running Windows 7 & an Ipod Touch which access entered it internet without any problem on a Belkin 54 g wireless router.

    Everytime I turn on my Windows Vista desktop PC, both devices 'hang up' (not the o/s of just no internet access) desktop PC seems to have access to internet at the outset and then access toggle on and outside.

    I then shut down the PC and reset before internet access wireless router is available on the portable computer and the IPOD Touch. I find it very frustrating, because I want that all three devices to be able to access the internet at the same time.

    An error message came up initially on the laptop, marking an IP address conflict. I paid for for a guru PC "told" to come take a look at this - he made some changes to the IP address of the desktop computer, then it wouldn't be anywhere near the addresses of the other 2 devices, but this seems not to have solved the problem.

    Can you please specify? Any help would be welcome!

    Thank you very much

  • Hi, I have a problem with threats in the temp folder

    I have a problem... Apparently, about 26 files in the windows/temp folder are infected. All files names begin with game, for example set625D.tmp and my antivirus program wants me to remove (on average). The problem is that I'm not sure if I have to remove, more exactly if my computer works perfectly if I delete them. Should I remove them, or look for an alternative? BTW, I have Vista...

    You can delete all the files in the folder temp without problem, unless
    they are used. If they are in use, Windows won't let you delete

    However, if they are part of a virus, AVG may be able to remove them.

  • I have a problem with access to Dell's Support page.

    Thanks, GregCY

    Thank you, Stanley Zhang

    I clicked on the support link you provided.

    Entered my serial number: obtained a list of associated items: drivers, etc. However, I wasn't able to get a response to this type of hard drive I have. I would like to learn how to use the support of dell for the next issues, as well. I took a little earlier you advise offered and has been a success with the method of the BIOS.

    Thanks, GregCY

    How can I get a direct answer from support.dell.com?

    You don't want to watch the pilots to figure out what your hard drive (this isn't an SSD - I'd be willing to bet money on it - not with this laptop model) but the configuration on the Dell web page tab.  Or the Device Manager on the local computer (which is easier - Let's go in this way.)
    Right-click on the "Computer" icon on your desktop and choose 'manage '.  When that opens, make it look like your screen (in terms of what is shown) so like this:

    As you can - highlighting the "Device Manager" on the left side and expanding the "hard drives" on the right.

    Now - once this is done, you must write all found under "Drives" and post it here.

  • problems with access to the FS comments

    I'm a begineer with VMvare and read a lot of documents on this site, but I'm still not sure about whether it is possible or not, according to

    someone who is not the guest user, to access the information stored in the comments SO

    I'm developing a web application for one of my clients, and he wants to set up a guest VM Ubuntu running on the server of its host running a MS SBS 2008 SO.

    If the web application will run on the Ubuntu Server installed as a guest and I'll be the only administrator of virtual machine of Ubuntu.

    My concern is whether we can or not by anyone to access information stored in a guest THEN (Ubuntu Linux) via the file system of the host, through the workstation or directly by the hard file or have it any other way!

    How can I be sure that no one will be able to copy the files I put in the httpdocs folder in the guest PC?

    Of course, I won't share any folder with the host system, but is - that enough?

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestion...

    Best regards


    Hello, Francesco.

    The way I mentioned refers to VMware Workstation 7.0. I don't know if the versions previous to this product or other VMware products include this feature. I assumed so. I have referred in my first answer. However, I thought VMware Infrastructure to be superior to the workstation and, therefore, also include it.

    In VMware Workstation 7.0, you go to the Virtual MACHINE menu, choose the settings... item, select the Options tab in the settings dialog that appears, and then choose the encryption setting.

    With regard to the question of if you must be an administrator in order to use encryption, I would think so. And I expect an encrypted virtual machine to perform a little more slowly than an unencrypted, but cannot be sure that I have not tried myself.

    Sorry for not being able to provide more help, but I'm sure that experts here will be!

    Good luck.
