I take my Asus k50ie computer _ portable back to store. He is 2 months old and I had driver problems, screen freezes, corrupted media library and memory video system 0. How can I remove and transfer all files and personal data. I have some blank discs and a memory stick 4 GB. Please help I'm really over the whole experience...

How to burn a CD or DVD in Vista at the link above.

The links above will help on Flash Drive/Memory stick.

When you are finished copying your files > right click on them in the Documents, etc. > delete them > and then empty the trash.

Then run Heidi eraser to erase the traces of your files "deleted":



After you save your data, you would be much better to a resumption of the proceedings to factory settings (how you bought):

Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

See you soon.

  • How to remove all corrupted files and Roxio?

    New problem since the last automatic download of an update to my Windows Vista:

    On Windows Vista, whenever I start a program, I get the error message ' (programname) .exe - damaged file. " The file or the directory c:\program files\common Roxio shared is damaged and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility. »

    I have run checkdisk repeatedly, but always the same error message every time that any program starts.

    I tried to uninstall all the subprogrammes of Roxio in this folder, but the "uninstall" program would not do that.

    I also tried to reinstall Roxio of CD disc programs and Vista wouldn't let me do it anymore.

    My other programs all work perfectly, so I take it that it is not the executable file for these various programs that is corrupt, only the one Roxio.

    The MacAfee program tells me that I have no virus it can see.

    How can I remove this corrupt file/folder? Or at least stop getting this error message?

  • Uninstall will remove all new files and folders.

    If the user decides to uninstall my Air application, it does not remove folders created with files in AppData. Another problem is that if the application creates new files in the folder Program Files/AirAppFolder, then uninstall the app are not deleted these files.

    How to solve these problems, help please?


    AIR should not create additional files in your folder program files, it's something you're doing programmatically?  If so, you can consider using File.applicationStorageDirectory instead due to permission issues, you will have on the newer operating systems.

    As for uninstalling all files (even), this is something you can consider using a native installer to take care.  Installer AIR not being aware of these data, it won't know of to remove on uninstall.  Instead, you'll want to create a custom function in a native installer that removes these files/folders and sub launches AIR installation/uninstallation.

    Thank you

    You mean that other users do not have their own user accounts?
    They all connect to your own account?

    If they all have their own user account to log on, they can't see your personal files, unless...
    1. your files in public folders.
    2. they have your password to login to your own account.

    So, please clarify.

  • If I update to windows 8.1 through my local account, all my files and all my information are saved?

    I have windows 8 on my desktop, I do not use a Microsoft account to connect to it, I use a local account. If I update to windows 8.1 all my files and all my information stored? and I will be able to connect to my local account without losing any of my information, such as files and app?

    Original title: I have a Local account on windows 8.

    Yes, absolutely.  This 8.1 update is really pretty as a Service Pack or set of updates.

    The only thing I can think of that can only be an impact for you, it's to the point 8.1 of Windows, you cannot use SkyDrive (now called OneDrive) unless you use a Microsoft Account on your profile.  In other words, you can not just use 'on the side '.  That could be a deal breaker if you rely on OneDrive to store all your files and settings.  But if you are not using OneDrive today, then it don't you impact at all.
