Delete Bootsqm.dat File
Can I put bootsqm in a folder somewhere? And 2, if anyone doesn't mind explaining, what exactly IS bootsqm?

Hey, I'm wondering if someone could tell me what bootsqm.dat is? I mean considering it has boot in the name I'm assuming it boots something, and it's coming up as clean so I really don't care, but I'm a little curious about if this is something normal. The reaon I'm wondering is because I figure if it was an adobe file or a system file, it would be in a folder wouldnt it?

It's just sitting there on my local drive (c:) without even being in a folder... Kinda bugs me. I think it may be on my xp as well... not sure.

Oh, and sorry if this is a waste of a thread, but I just want to be safe considering I'm using a beta AV right now (it's nice but idk how reliable it is, it passed my tests though), and I want to be sure I don't get an infection for another month or so when I get Eset smart security 4 (building this computer robbed me =(

EDIT: does nobody know about this? Should I just delete it to be safe?

To make this more... on topic, is it recomended to get ESET smart security 4, or wait until they come out with a Windows 7 specific AV? Because buying eset in august and then having a Windows 7 AV come out 2 months later would suck...

How To Make .DAT File Read-only
I have Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I want to change a DAT file to read-only, but every time I try to I get two error messages. The first one says something about needing the administrator, and that's weird because I am the administrator, and the second message goes on to say "an error has occurred...ignore, ignore all etc. I even tried to change the file in safe mode but that didn't work. I noticed that the file is set to open with Media Player Classic, for some reason, and that's it

What Information Is In The Ntuser.dat File
What information is in the ntuser.dat file? Is is simply profile information or does it contain information about browsing as well? I use ccleaner to delete the .dat files in the temp internet file area, but I don't want to have browsing history, especially accounts, exposed someplace else.

Deleted DAT File Type In Registry - Added It Again / Any Setback?
So, I was having problems with my .dat file type icon, and in frustration trying to get rid of the icon and start all over again, I deleted the file type in the registry. Will this cause problems in the future, even though I re-added it in the registry? I don't see any problems with them right now, but I didn't know if I might have troubles in the future due to this.

Error: Recovery.Dat
I have a ASUS x83v notebook,

duel p8400 64bit 4gigs ram nVidea w/ 1gig ram

running vista.

During the RC trials I downloaded W7 burned it as a bootable iso and installed it from the dvd. It flawlessly installed I went through all the setup stuff, clock language ect. and then it reboots and just as it starts I got a screen with a big red ERROR on it with

"Can not open c:Recovery.dat"

I reinstalled it two more times, same thing.

I redownloaded the RC iso and burned it again then installed it again, same thing.

I figured it was somehting to do with the RC version, until today!

I just bought the W7 Ultamite64 and installed it and it did the same exact thing. I am guessing there has to be some incompatability with my BIOS or something but I don't know a lot about this stuff.

If you know anything please let me know as I can't buy a new computer to run W7.

Index.dat In 2011 After All MS Updates To Windows 7?
MS keeps updating Windows 7 to ensure that we can no longer delete or reset the index.dat files. The result is that no matter what fix is posted here, MS does something to ensure the fix no longer works. Here's the laundry list of solutions that no longer work. Malwarebytes (various problems -- says file is open in Malwarebytes, is hidden and cannot be found even though Windows options have been changed to show hidden files) CCleaner (ineffective) index.dat Suite (currently completely disabled for Windows 7) index.dat suite (to find all files) combined with Eraser (to erase the files) (comes back wtih error message) Red Button (can't remember specifics here -- just that it doesn't work) Mil Sheild (can't remember specifics on this one either -- just that it doesn't work) and finally the instructions in the most recent thread on Index.dat which involve booting in safe command and going to the root file to delete index.dat. (I receive an error message that the file does not exist even though I can find 15 separate index.dat files with index.dat suite.

I have deleted my d: partition so now I only have c: and a recovery partition. I have tried to do the upgrade option and the custom one but always get this message when it is trying to boot up.

I have searched everywhere for a fix and found a few posts but none have worked so far.

Do anyone have any pointers so I can get it installed ? If anyone needs more information please let me know.

You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I did a search but could not find anything related to this error in Win 7.

Reducing Wav File Size (audio File) For Powerpoint?
I had completed a beautiful 82-slide PowerPoint presentation, but the wav file I embedded was HUGE (about 200 MB) and not to my choosing. I just had to have the music a certain length to span across 82 slides. Is there ANY WAY to reduce the size of this music wav file (so that it conforms to the 50 MB max file size for PowerPoint). I would rather embed this music file than to have a link.

Cannot Rename File Because File (Doesn't) Exists
I tried to save a file and got an error on saving it, so I quit the program. The file appears as if it was never saved and doesn't show up in directory listing (GUI or cmd.exe).

However, if I try to rename any other file to that filename, it says "Cannot rename file, because file exists" and appends a number to the end. I cannot remove the number. This happens both in the GUI and cmd.exe as well.

So, basically cmd.exe del says the file does not exist, but ren says a duplicate file name exists....

I have no idea how to delete that "ghost" of a file so I can actually use the filename. I checked folder options and it's not a hidden file or anything like that - it just (doesn't) exist, but it does?
