When trying to open a pdf-file I receive the message : The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running cannot be used to view pfd files on a web-browser. Adobe Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required. But I am running version 9.1.3 ....I tried repairing the Adobe but still no luck!
I'm pretty much computer illiterate. I think I accidentally did a clean install when upgrading to Vista from XP. Is there a way to retrieve the files that I didn't back up? I'm mainly concerned with the pictures.
My laptop broke. It no longer has any power to it...without spending money to confirm, I believe the motherboard is bad and all is lost. I know I can get an external HD to retrieve my photos & files from the computer buit what about my Windows Mail? I had 200-300 emails on it (and no, I didn't save a copy on the server 'cause I didn't know better). Do I understand correctly that there is no way for me to forward them into Windows Mail on my new computer?
My Laptop was taking about 8-9 mins on average to boot. But Runs Great once running. also shut down was 4-5 mins. I tried Defrag, CCleaner Defrag Registry, Registry Cleanup,enable both cpu's at start up,ran Avanquest's System Suite Utilities, Chkdsk/f /r,also sfc /scannow.so reading on some forums, a lot of advice was to update all drivers. So I got Driver Genius Pro 9 by avanquest (Driversoft company when installed)this program found 22 drivers out of date. so I created a restore Point and did a full registry export(backup).next, I let all the drivers completely download, then First, I installed Intel turbo memory drivers,everything was functioning well, so I proceeded to install Intel chipset device software.
3rd was the Nvidia Display Drivers so I made a second Restore point (I had issues in the past with display drivers) So I installed the Nvidia drivers and on reboot I input my password and it says The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User Profile cannot be loaded. I tried to run Restore but it says Disk OS(C) has errors(Windows detected file system corruption on OS(C). you must check the disk for errors before it can be restored. checking disk OS (C) - Some Problems were found and fixed. But at reboot - same issue. so I went to vista forums."Brink" had some great advice I used that I found in a thread, to turn on the "Real" administrator account in safe mode to gain access and I uninstalled the Nvidia drivers under the admin acct. at reboot states corrupt system files (CheckDisk) But when I tried to run driver Genius in admin again to reverse the intel drivers (this shows up as Intel Matrix Storage Manager in Start>Programs) the PC crashed.
I ran CHKDSK /f .NOW I can boot into my acct. but there is NO sound device found, sidebar gadget shows no battery,or battery activity.Also bluetooth Hardware not functioning. The Drivers for bluetooth and sound show "Functioning" in device manager. Someone HELP Please as I spent many many months customizing and lots of money on software that will be lost. It seems to be fixable but HOW?
After two days of trying to recover my vista installation I've got a new version of vista and it it's still telling me i've got missing or corrupt files. Where can get the correct files/ a good recovery disk/ a bootable virus cd (tried bit defender - didn't work). I've read soooo many pages about this and nothing works. Startup repair - doesn't work; complete system recovery - doesn't work; formatting during the vista installation - doesn't work.
Recently I have had three files turn sour on me for no visible reason (corrupt). One of them is a very imporant bit of course work. Im running office 2007 and 32bit vista home. I have been storing the files on a USB stick I thing there may be someing wrong with the usb stick I have now changed it but this dose not solve my problem of the lost files.
I have tried downloading various recovery programs none of which have worked. I have also downloaded open office and that will not open the files either. I don't know where to go from here. If someone can send me back the "energy survey" in working order im willing to send them £5 via PayPal. Only 2 the first person.
found corrupt files when I ranAttachment 6215 sfc /scannow Also found the same thing when i went to use vista glazz to patch upAttachment 6216 and I cant provide the cbs log that scannow provided me, b/c I don't know what info is relevant
my problem is im constantly being told that i have curropt files it starts when i start windows continues in windows and even when i shut down. ive tried to run chkdsk but it wont run at all. right now im doing rfc /checknow but it stops at 25%.
I am getting messages to run a chkdsk for 3 different corrupt files. I was unable to run chkdsk. I followed all details I found on this website, but I dont have Session Manager under hkey_local_machine/system/currentcontrolset/control. I also tried to download the .reg, but no option to merge. I also lost all sound. It seems like problems just keep getting worse and more things are not working.
My stationary pc with XP broke, now I have a laptop with Vista. I connected my stationary harddrive as USB connection to my laptop. I can view all files but I have importand files in XP my personal admin account as on my documents and settings, my pictures, and other files that was on XP windows desk. This files I can not view or open, it says it need admin rights to open. I can also say I had a log in pass for XP, I know that password. How can I get a hand of this importand files. There is a tool in Vista systemtools "Windows filetransfer" it say it can transfer accounts also. what folder should I transfer to my laptop, I know I have to transfer my documents and setting on my own account, but do I need the admin account and I have one more guest account I don't need that. Do I need to transfer the Windows folder? Is there anyother way to get hand of this admin locked files, any software I can use directly so I don't need to transfer?
just got a Acer Aspire 6935G, few months old, no previous problems. just ran sfc to check the system files and windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them. the trouble is i cant access the CBS.log file to see the violation/s. keeps saying access denied, i have tried changing the file permissions for my user account (ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT) to full control but still i get access denied. should i take ownership?
I've had a Dell XPS M1210 for about 15 months. I am running Vista Ultimate on it, now with SP1, before the RC1. Several times, I've had problems with files getting corrupt (about every month), which have made program being non-working. I also have problems with the wireless networking, but that's another problem...
I fixed the files with chkdsk and that sometimes solved it. I can't remember all files, but it has been the login, photoshop, office, logitech cam e.g. I couldn't even start up the computer without getting the message - file corrupt, run chkdsk several times. Luckily, the RC1 solved everything. Unfortunately, I had to uninstall it to install SP1 and that time everything crashed.
Now I have used the Dell restore to get the computer running (in April). Everything worked fine, but now I have gotten the files corrupt messages twice. Chkdsk has fixed it, everything seems to work ok. But I think it is only a matter of time before there will be more problems. Running the sfc/scannow shows there are some corrupt windows files. Anyway, I called Dell about this and they recommend me doing a clean install from CDs instead of their image on my computer. I doubt that this will work. The only thing is that this will take an enormous amount of time (since I have to install Adobe CS3, Office, etc), even though they claim it is quick. Their support is pure BS, IMO.
my laptop i 4got my password 2 my admin. account and iunno how 2 get back on it i only have access 2 the guest account and all my files and skool stuff is on the admin. account so how do i recover my password and im running the the basic vista
wont allow me to access my "Msn" and my burning tools" they both say u need admin permissions and local admin or something like that, as far as i know, i am logged in as admin, that is also the only user account avilable on start up, and i did just format my pc.
I am set to auto retrieve email every 10 minutes and to retrieve email each time I start mail. It retrieves each time I start mail but never auto retrieves email regardless of the time frequency that I have set. I have tried turning off the retrieve when started and that does not make the auto detect work either. This option worked when I initially started mail but stopped working shortly there after.
I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit, and yesterday, when I started my PC up, I was presented with a scaled down version of my desktop. Upon further investigation, I found out that I was at c:UsersTEMPdesktop. I attempted to put some files back on the desktop, and ran into other issues, so I did a Ctrl-Z to undo what I did. These files ended up in the recycle bin, with the c:UsersTEMPdesktop label, and any attempts to retrieve them result in an error message stating that this does not exist. I have gotten back to my original desktop, which is at c:UsersMedesktop by searching other internet sites about this disappearing desktop profile issue
I have lost almost 3 month worth of email I have sent. my inbox if fine. I just realise when I needed to check some think and I seen there are no email form March, April and May in my sent items, the rest are there. how can I retrieve them? They are very important. I never delete any email. just half of my sent email disappeared with no reason.
i can recieve emails, but i also get the following message, Message number 1 could not be retrieved. Account: 'mail.btinternet.com', Server: 'mail.btinternet.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR problem retrieving message.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800420CD
Beginning last week, after following suggestions for solving a problem opening .jpg & .pdf file attachments with Windows Mail, I seem to have lost the toolbar icons "New Contact" and "New Contact Group." how to retrieve them?
When I open my windows mail it is only checking my first email, not the 2nd. When I go to webmail for the 2nd email address, the emails are there, but even if I leave them as unmarked, they don't appear in my windows mail. I do have the "include this account when receiving mail" checkbox ticked
I tried to use Windows like mail, but unfortunately even though it imported my settings from Outlook and / or from Windows mail, I cannot retrieve all my mail. I have three e-mail addresses that I used and it refuses to recognize the passwords even though they are recognized in Microsoft Outlook 2007 and windows mail.
I'm trying RAID 0 for the first time and i'm having some problems. I set up my hard drives to the RAID0 option in the BIOS. chose my HDD, allocated space, striped, everything. when time came to install windows and it searched for the driver, i put the proper driver in a USB drive. it recognizes it, sees it, and when i click ok, it starts installation but then stops with the message "windows could not retrieve information about the disks on this computer".
i just don't get it. i downloaded the driver on the manufacturer's website. i made sure it was for the 64bit vista os. i even downloaded all the different country specific drivers and tried each one of them. i basically tried every driver, even the 32bit version just to make sure. still the same message. everything's new and working properly so i don't think it's a hardware issue. both hard drives are the exact same brand, type, & capacity. they are both recognized in the BIOS.
This is the third time now my mail has had problems. I am at the moment attempting to get Microsoft help but that seems to be taking forever. 2 times previous to this I have logged into my Windows Mail and found that they have had to retrieve all my mail folders as they got "lost" somehow. Now I log in yesterday morning to check on some e-mails that I have saved in a folder titled "Job Searches" and all of the e-mails in there are there in title only but have no content. Another folder same thing basically except that every e-mail content is the same. I'm baffled.
Machine has an issue with the Security Center. Cannot launch most programs but can navigate the internet. Permissions problems prevent me from starting security center services. I know I can wipe the machine but there are some things I would like to retrieve... one being the Office 2007 PID.
