I have a Windows 7 Pro PC with Local Printer Installed & a Vista Ultimate PC that is networked to the Windows 7 local printer.All has been working fine until today when the Vista PC would not print. I deleted the networked printer in Vista & tried to re-add it but it cannot find the networked printer.I noted that the Print & File Sharing was not Enable on my Win 7 PC but when I enable it it will not remain set when I return to check the setting.I tried enabling it in Safe Mode w/Networking but it will not remain enabled.Firewall setting are all normal (no changes in settings)I don't have any infections of virus (online scan) & I use Windows Security Essentials for my AV prog.I've not installed any new apps?
Tried a system restore from the RC1 install disk? Mine lists about 8 restore points, but when I select one, it tells me that "You must enable System Protection for this drive." and it will not restore.. I understand that from the Brink tutorial on this topic of System Restore, that it's supposed to be on my default. There is no way I can check to see if it is on or off, because my computer will not boot. I certainly didn't turn it off, so I am wondering what is going on. It doesn't seem to make sense to create restore points if you can't use them.
I Have a Netbook Windosw Home Premium 64bit (no CD Drive). After an Windows Update I can't boot anymore. By searching google I found a lot of posts with the same problem, with or without solutions that worked for these people. Unfortunately non worked for me.

I am building a new system for a friend. I was wondering how do I enable the setup screen for a first time user after I have installed the OS and updated all the drivers and windows updates? Like how do I make it so that when I give him the system and he turns it on for the first time it'll ask him all the setup info like when you start a new computer for the first time.
I recently purchased a wireless adapter for xbox 360. its not a genuine microsoft product. i have tried everything to install the driver but everytime it says "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while trying to install it xbox360 wireless reciever for windows The system cannot find the file specified" does windows simply not allow unsigned drivers at all anymore? i have tried installing in test mode, but still no joy.
So I found a post on this forum with a similar problem. I'm trying to move a file that is larger than 4GB in size from my main hard drive to an external, and getting the error message in the title. The consensus on the other post was that the hard drive must have been a FAT format, and that too fix the problem either split up the file or reformat the hard drive as NTFS.Well, by all accounts, my computer is telling me that my external hard drive is ALREADY formatted as NTFS, but I'm still getting this error. I would prefer not to split up the file, but other than that, what are my options?
When i go "Control Panel - Network and Sharing Center - Advanced Sharing Settings" and try to enable the "file and printer sharing" and click OK, it doens't save it.. If i go there again, the settings have just reverted back to disabled.. Anybody have an idea as to why this is? "Network discovery" i can enable, however "File and Printer sharing", and "Public Folder Sharing" i cannot.. Im running with pretty much standard settings, "file and printer sharing" is allowed in the firewall rules, and is enabled in the properties of my network card.. Im running on a school domain network, with my own desktop.. My laptop, which i received from my school, has no problem enabling it, but my desktop however can not..

since i while ago my laptop's wireless been behaving really weird. the wireless driver will suddenly disable and gone from the network list going into Device manager, it says "this driver is not installed " or sth like that. cant exactly rmb what it said, and sometimes the wireless bars in the bottom will show a yellow "!" with no connectivity with showing only the network i connected to. if i repair it the driver will be gone. almost have to repair like 10X times to get it come back on, (or i think i came back on itself) or sometimes just no network "no connections are available" 1st thought was virus, but did full scan.no virus. just did a Full Format and reinstall window, and 1st thing i've installed the wireless driver..still happaning.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium with IE8. I accidently unchecked the box that says "always ask before opening this type of file" box, and I want it back. Now when I download a .zip file it throws it into a Temporary Internet Files folder, that when I look for it, the folder doesn't even exsist. I want the box back so that I am able to specify the file path when I download .zip files again.

My netbook cannot restore itself! my netbook (ASUS ASPIRE ONE) and long story short i did a factory reset instead of a system restore cause a virus wouldnt let me use the system restore option after i did the the factory reset my netbook was in a loop and couldnt go through with the initial windows set up.ive managed to get a recovery software and made it bootable on my pen drive but now the restore point is saying "you must enable system restore on this drive"i've looked around on the web to find solutions but all i find is to go on windows but obviously at this moment i cant do that is there a way to bypass this by using Command prompt? I cannot use a CD Installation disk because it is a netbook so that means there is no Disk drive i did not get a CD with the windows 7?
I have a program I wrote in Visual Basic that copies a file from one directory into another directory at a prescribed interval. The Visual Basic programs uses the ShellFileCopy API function ShellFileCopy Visual Basic 6 API Function FreeVBCode code snippet: Copy Files Using the Shell API 99% of the time, the program works fine.However occasionally, I get a Windows error that pop's up that says "File is too large for the destination file system" This is extremely baffling as the size of the file that is being copied is under 1MB.
We recently installed Yahoo messenger and suddenly the Library folder isn't showing any folders/files under the Administrator account. When I go to create a new Library it reads the following error message: "Unable to create the new file 'New Library.library-ms' File System Error: (16389)." Not only is the library no longer accessible, but I cannot access any of the Music, Pictures or Documents from the Start Menu.I am only able to access the folders using the search bar by selecting "User Name" from the drop down box, then suddenly everything's there. It will not allow me to drag/drop anything into the Library folder or even create a new one.
After many different repair options, I've managed to get my network partially going again.My network is WLAN based.DHCP client will not start - error = "error 2, The system cannot find the file specified".I can ping 127.0.0.1, my gateway IP, my other PCs on the network but I still cannot ping localhost - error = "Ping request could not find the host localhost. Please check the name and try again".Just tried to update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it gave me the error : "PROGRAM_ERROR_UPDATING (0, 0, DNS error)
If I try to install a driver and not all of the driver files are present, I will get the error message "The system cannot find the file specified." But the problem is that it doesn't actually tell me what file it can't find. There is a large empty space right underneath the error, as if something should be in that spot, but the file name is not listed there.(The above example is if you were to update the driver manually. Like if you were to click 'Update Driver', then 'Browse my computer for driver software', then 'Browse' to the directory with the INF file in it, and then click 'Next'.)In Windows XP, if you received the same error, it would show you the name of the missing file.
Every time I start my computer I get this message;Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. One of your disk needs to be checked for consistency. You can cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue. To skip disk checking, press any key within(10)seconds.I have allowed it to continue numerous times, but it makes no difference, this same error comes up every time I start my computer, now I just press a key within 10 seconds and that gets rid of it.
I'm trying to delete an ISO image which appears to be in use by System. When I boot into safe mode and try it, the error still comes up. I've also tried deleting it via the elevated command prompt. Changing the security permissions doesn't seem to do it
