    Of course, you can reinstall Windows. It's a shame, if that's the only way to solve this problem. :-(
    For later use, it is sometimes necessary to download the installation file, physically disconnect from the Internet, set up a clean boot (using msconfig startup diagnosis), reboot and THEN install the large program (and then undo the clean boot, reboot and re-connect to the Internet).

  • If I buy a new card motherboard but plan to keep the same HARD drive, what happens when I reinstall a new copy of Windows 7?

    I have an OEM of Windows 7 version, so when I buy a new motherboard I intend to buy another copy of Windows 7. What will happen if I use the same hard drive?

  • What happened to my message window?

    I use Mail 9.2 with the classic layout. I shot all the way to the bottom of the message list window to see more of the list, and now I can't return to the window split with the list of the messages above the messages. There's a slider that appears when I hover over the little point at the bottom of the window, but when I slide it up nothing happens. All the other resize window option seem to work fine. I confirmed that I use the classic layout and I restarted the iMac but I can't restore the window split with messages below the list of messages. How to return to the display of two strands?

  • Dllhost.exe - application error windows 7 what happens if upgrading to Windows 10

    After a power failure that I realized when power has been restored that my computer had been left there on before the failure - 3 days now I get a dllhost.exe - application error message.   I have not installed any new programs or updated everything I know before the current problem.  My question is if I download the new Windows 10 will be cela correct/fix problem dllhost.exe - my computer currently the s running on Windows 7

    I suggest that you enable restoring the system so that it is available the next time that you need.  Note that the system restore must be enabled on the operating system drive, there is no need to enable restoring the system on disks.

    Regarding the dllhost.exe - application error message I suggest that you run a Malwarebytes and a TDSSKiller scan on the machine.  If these find no parasites, then don't look at the registry of the possible clues, this error can be caused by any software installed on the computer.

  • diagnosis provided by the manufacturer or the installer is what I have to reinstall windows xp, help

    I get this message. Setup did not find any hard drives installed in your cmputer.

    Make sure that the hard drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any hardware configuration of the drives is correct. This may involve a diagnosis provided by the manufacturer or the installer running.

    The installation program cannot continues.


    According to my understanding, your device does not detect the hard disk of the unit there are a few steps that you can try to resolve your problem.

    (1) turn the unit pressing the F10 key Dungeon and then go to the Diagnostics record if the hard drive is detected if so if please run the test and check if this goes. If not you need to reinstall the hard disk and do check it out if you have the same problem, then the hard disk is damaged, you will need to replace the part.

    (2) after that reinstalling the hard disk if the drive is detected and if the test is successful then you can try to reinstall OS again on the device.

    Let us know how it goes!

  • Just reinstalled Windows, permissions on the secondary drive are bent now

    My 320 GB hard drive that has Windows 7 installed on it crashed. I also had a secondary drive of 1.5 TB of storage. I bought a new 500 GB drive and installed Windows 7 fresh top. Now, I think all permissions on this secondary drive are confused because they were originally from the previous installation. At first, I was getting errors in the programs that I couldn't because I don't have permission to write files, so I said the drive to give me ownership of everything on it.

    That seemed to work for a while, but now - and it is perhaps even more boring - when I try to move or copy files, even if I am the owner, it keeps popping up that box (which NEVER happened on the previous installation, incidentally) tells me I need administrator permission to move the files. The first time I saw it, my account was created as an administrator, so I was like "What the heck?" but I hit the little 'yes' with a shield next to him and the files will move as I indicated.

    After spending a ton of time to search the Internet for more information on this subject, it looked like whenever someone asked something similar to this, they would immediately get said, before all else, that they shouldn't be on the admin account, so I thought it was probably a good idea anyway, and who knows maybe it will solve the problem so I did an admin account, logged in it and the value of my main account to a Standard user. Now, logged into my account as a Standard user, when I try to move the files in the same way, the same box appears, except that now I have to enter the password of the Admin account to move files, too!

    I really don't want this obscene level of security on a single user's computer, but I tell myself that all this has something to do with the previous installation of Windows and system files on the secondary drive.

    Long story short, I want the nagging box go away, and I'm out of ideas.

    I solved my problem, I think.

    First: I deleted this user, who, after researching online, I found was just as I thought, an old rest of the previous installation of windows. Remove from the list of permissions of the folder seemed to work well and removed everything.

    Second: drive D right click, entered the security, hit advanced, tap on change permissions, open my standard user and deleted permissions. I hit OK, checked the box on the next screen to replace all child object permissions and click OK. It took some time to change all the permissions, but then I checked the various folders and files to confirm that the standard user was on the list.

    Third: once this was done, I did the same thing AGAIN. Right click the D drive, entered the security, hit advanced, tap on change permissions, open my standard user and he gave TOTAL CONTROL. I hit OK, checked the box on the next screen to replace all child object permissions and click OK. It took some time to change all the permissions, but then I checked the various folders and files to confirm that the standard user was on every list with full control.

    Fourth: I changed to the standard user account and tried to move one of the files previously not moveable, and it worked very well.

    MY THEORY OF WHY THIS HAPPENED: when I reinstalled windows, I chose the same username of the main account again. This may have confused the file system, so I need to get rid of all remnants of the old installation. My username and the name of the computer being the same, I just need to trash the permissions for the old compname/username and then reset again for the compname/current user name.

    I could be WAY OFF with this theory, but it seems to have worked.

    A bit of research I could do, but I'm not going to do, would be to reinstall Windows again and choose a different computer name and the user name to see if the same issues that happened, or if the new permissions set correctly. Or heck, even if the old permissions were still there, but once I took control at the start, it would work. But I'm not going to reinstall Win again, so I don't know who.

    Basically, I think that when you have a situation like mine, it is maybe just tell Windows to appropriate the entire disk is not good enough, and you must make sure that all the old stuff is removed before this. (If your username and compname are the same thing again.)

    As how young Win7 is, I guess the percentage of those who have reinstalled as it is still quite low, so it's probably a problem not frequently encountered. You can have people from MS to test on this!

    Thanks for all the help, I'll be sure to check if there are other problems and let you know!

  • What happens to my data if I reinstall windows 7

    my system does not work correctly, and I think that some of my windows got corrupted programs.  I think I need to reinstall windows 7 to fix the problem


    The best safe method would be to always have redundant backups of your data. An Installation repair help - that allows to maintain the programs and data - maybe the last link below.

    You mean reinstall the OS completely? If you have the Windows 7 DVD you can do this however remember to completely backup your data off the drive and you need to reinstall your programs. If you don't have Windows 7 disks, you can buy them in your machine to cheap system. If you don't care about existing programs, then you can do a complete new installation - just select the format options that erases the entire disc (This erases all data as well). Some system manufacturers use Partitions of recovery as well as other methods to allow you to return to a completely new installation. So check with your system manufacturer to see what options you have to do - and it's certainly doable - just a matter of the manufacturer of the system processes in place for you.
