You should look in the control panel-> programs and features

Here you will find all the programs that are installed in Windows Vista. To remove an any of them click the program you want to uninstall and then click Uninstall/change, and follow the prompts.

After Toshiba HDD protection has been uninstalled, you can try to keep up with the upgrade to Windows 7.

  • Remove movies from the hard drive on Macbook Air 2015


    I have several movies I have on my iTunes account.

    So I don't think that they would be automatically downloaded on my hard drive. I just thought that it would be similar to the Iphone you might access via WIFI but not necessarily have downloaded to your device. I'm looking for how to remove movies from your mac on other forms. None of them have asked me.

    Go to iTunes movie right click and delete it. empty the trash, restart the computer. Well by clicking on remove fair skins film of your iTunes purchases and don't take them to the reader. I still only 40 GB to 128 GB storage after the 'removal' of movies.

    They suggested also go to the finder and on the left side of the screen would be a zone of movies. No, it isn't. There's nothing to the media either.

    I'm lost and completely new for the Mac.



    The movies have been downloaded via iTunes? Have you looked in the folder/Home/movies/on your computer? You can also check the folder/Home/music/and the other files in this folder to find the files downloaded.

    If you can find the films listed in iTunes, then select them and CTRL - or RIGHT click to select Remove from the context menu. We should ask if you want to move to the trash. Click on this option.

    How to remove programs from the system tray without removing them from the startup on Windows XP folder?


    The first step is to identify the program that represents the icon and decide whether it should be in the system tray (most are not necessary). Hold the cursor of the mouse on the icon to see the name of the program that launches the icon.

    The best bet is to click the icon to see if this opens the box of the program options. If so, look for a selection similar to "remove from the system tray.

    Alternatively, you can hide the icons in the system tray.

    Here's how:

    1. right click on the taskbar and select "Properties".

    2. in the "Notification area" click "Hide inactive icons" if she already unchecked and then click on the button "Customize".

    3. click on the ' column next to each of your current behavior and choose one of the three behaviors for each program icon that appears in the system tray: "Hide when it is idle," "Always hide", or "always show".»

    If you hide an icon, but then see it again the next time that you log on to Windows, you may need to uninstall the program to permanently remove the icon. Uninstall the program permanently removes the program from your computer. For more information, see Uninstall or change a program.

    OK, that's a lot of sense.  But I still don't know what I have to do them down the office without losing them.

    If you move from your Explorer or finder in a given folder, you will not lose them and they will disappear from your desktop.

    If you want to use the Organizer to keep track of your photos in the catalog, use the Organizer, not the Explorer / finder to move them to another folder on the desktop.

  • My main computer crashed and the data has been retrieved from the hard drive, including all of my Outlook Express dbx files

    I'll provide too much information because those of us who are computer knuckleheads think that everything is important since it is a mystery to us.

    My main computer crashed and the data has been retrieved from the hard drive, including all of my Outlook Express dbx files. There are four years of e-mails in these files and critical that I be able to open them.

    My only working computer running XP. It has Outlook Express is installed on it and was once used for e-mail, but not more and not implemented with my ISP to send or receive if it matters at all. Other that the sending and receiving of all the other functions of the OE program appear to be operational.

    I have read many explanations on how to open the files dbx on different sites - all is completely different and most seem well beyond my skill level.

    There is a fairly painless way to open these files? I don't want to try anything that could damage them. Please... any solution please guide me through in its simplest form - I am 64 but pretend you are explaining the process to a 7 year old. Yes, I'm that lame!

    Sorry for writing a novel and thank you to all who take their time to help the ignorant!

    I advise you to immediately copies of your DBX files restored. Save the duplicates in a place safe, and don't mess with them.
    Then try using one of the various tutorials that you have found on the Internet by using a copy of your DBX files restored.
    I did it a few times, but years ago and I DBX http://www.techrepublic.com/forums/questions/how-i-open-corrupted-dbx-files-in-oe/ visualization tool
    You just continue to make attempts, using a tutorial after another.
    As long as you have these unchanged copies of backup of your DBX files, you should survive it - other than frustration. Email PC remains a mess.

  • Equium A100-147 - clicking noise from the HARD drive

    For awhile, I had clicking noise from the HARD drive and when the laptop could not, I assumed the reader was packed but trying a replacement nothing happens. I get a blue light for battery and a blue light (low) for the supply of direct current, but nothing for power or disc. However, when I plugged in an external drive yesterday it starts fine and when I unplugged the laptop continued to work the internal drive. But even once this morning he died and will not start. I read that the BIOS can stop recognizing the drive or maybe that the settings are not being saved when it is off. Could it be the motherboard battery?

    > reading the BIOS can stop recognizing the drive or maybe that the settings are not being saved when it is off

    Enter the Bios (press f2 at startup) and check if it recognizes the hard disk. You can see on the home page or the boot option in the Bios.

  • Satellite A200 - Crackle sound comes from the HARD drive


    I have the Satellite A200. When I start my laptop the patter comes from the hard drive.
    Someone knows something about it?

    Thank you

    In my view there s nothing wrong with your HARD drive.
    My drive HARD click every time while accessing data on the laptop and everything run ok for 3 years.

    But that doesn t mean that there is no hardware problem with your HARD drive. Usually it's not easy to tell when a HARD drive wound begins to malfunction. My first HARD drive died after 6 years of use. But the other HARD drive died after 1.5 years. This damage was covered by the warranty.

    Finally, I would recommend backup your data always on an external HARD disk to prevent data damage.

    Good bye

    Consult the manual of the manufacturer, to do the same thing.
