My computer is messed up 70%. How can I reformat and start from scratch?

Section "Programs", I "Program Files" and "Program Files (x 86)" and system recovery files.  I have all the files the

computer so I'm not concerned about losing.  Can I reformat the hard disk to clean it and if so how?

Can I buy software that will remove these files and programs?

Can I connect with a technology that can access my computer and fix it?

Of course, I really, really need help.

Please advise and thank you for any help you can give me.

Your computer is equipped with a recovery instead of disk partition...

This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...

For Dell, press CTRL + F11 directly after switching on the device

For HP, press F11 directly after switching on the device

For LG, press F11 directly after switching on the device

For Toshiba, press and hold "0" BEFORE and during the power upward

For Acer, press and hold ALT + F10, as soon as you see the logo

For Asus, press F9, as soon as you see the Asus logo.

For Samsung, press F4 to the power upward...

For Fujitsu, press the F8 key directly after the power

Advent, restart your computer. Then, press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting system recovery"

Sony VAIO, reboot and press "F8" or "F10" repeatedly until the screen "Advanced Boot Options".

You may need to try several times to get everything above to work. If after several attempts, you have no chance, or the machine indicates that there is no recovery partition, your only option is to contact the computer manufacturer and ask for the model recovery discs...

After the reset, you should get all the updates from Windows Update EXCEPT for hardware devices. Then, you install a good antivirus. ONLY AFTER you have done this, if you replace the stuff of backups or install anything else.

  • How it delete and start from scratch?

    All I want to do is clear on my computer and restart from scratch. I have all my records, but he said not how to this in the instruction manuals... only includes restoration at some point and I don't want to restore. How it delete and start from scratch? I've saved my files to an external hard drive.

    If you are sure you want to do this - and it of a radical step, is generally not necessary - you potentially have two choices.

    In addition to your data, make sure that you have saved the downloaded installation files and their activation keys, as appropriate.

    Some computers manufactured by large OEMs have a hidden partition to "restore" that will allow you to restore the computer to its "fresh from the factory" State.  Alternatively, the manufacturer may have provided a 'recovery' or 'restore' CD/DVD which will accomplish the same thing.  One of the important side effects: test facilities of things like antivirus applications will install but not triggered because the trial period had been used.  You must uninstall these completely (using the "removal tool" provided by a / v manufacturer) before installing a real a / v application.

    On the other hand, you can have a genuine Windows XP install CD, although these are rare.  If that's what you have, you want to do what is called a "clean install".  Don't forget to install your device drivers after the Windows Installer is finished (card mother/chipset, network card, sound card, video card, etc.).

    http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html
    http://www.theeldergeek.com/xp_pro_install_-_graphic.htm

    In both cases, after Windows has been installed, the first thing we do is go to Windows Update and install all critical updates.  Then you can install all the applications you have installed after you purchased the computer.  They must be installed from the original media (a downloaded Setup program that you have registered or a CD/DVD).  If none of these applications are Microsoft applications, return to Microsoft Update and get updates critical for these applications.

  • Hi all, how can restrict us and end from 'a droping table' user but need access to the 'workshop of data' to load the data into the spreadsheet.

    Hi all

    How can we limit and end user of "droping a table."

    For example: I created an array of login admin and gave access to "SQL workshop" for the end user. but after that I have created a table, the end user cannot access object browser shop and drop a table. one thing we can do does not have access to the SQL workshop. However, my requirement is the user needs to access the data workshop, which is located under the SQL workshop but they it should not access the tables.

    Kindly let me know how we can do this?

    Thank you

    There is no way not to restrict access to individual tools in the workshop of SQL. Rather than give the developer-level end-users to access the SQL workshop, create applications containing data support Wizards, where end-user access can be controlled using the standard APEX authentication and authorization schemas.

    Hi MarkWhitcroft,

    1. did you this latency for a long time or recently experienced?

    2. the problem occurs with other games?

    There are several reasons for you to experience higher than normal latency in games.

    I suggest that you install the updated drivers for the network adapter on the computer to the card manufacturer's website and check later to see if it helps.

    Updated a hardware driver that is not working properly

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isn ' t-work correctly

    This can also occur if the server on which you play is very far away, causing high latency because the information must travel more to reach the server and return.

    This can also happen if there is a problem with the internet provider (ISP) and you must contact them for further assistance.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi again LvScience:

    (tips from jsoulless40 (thanks js40!) to try the site office in Firefox when using the web application in Dungeon is very good, but I think you are using the right to keep the App, not web app version right?)

  • How can I reset and start another game.

    Hello

    Please help someone, I spent several days on this and still can't make it work.

    The code below is ok, I play a bowling game using the keyboard and the timer with a reading of the text of the passage of time, the bowl moves to a set number of pixels on the screen.  while I would, mode full screen click Start/play button on the screen to start the game and the timer, all is in box 1.  I also would like the game to simply accept the 77 keycode and keyboard event (2 events to move the bowl) and wait for the boot/play button click.

    Thank you
