    Failed Restore Attempt Win2000

    Trying to restore Windows from the cd on an integrated WIN2000 system. A "failed" ""restore" attempt error occured. The CD drive stopped working after the failed attempt, but it still recognizes the cd burner, which is not intergrated. Any clue as to what we might try? tc

    MSN Messenger Hoax Hijack

    I did so many things, I am not sure what really worked, but if you have not tried using the repair tool that is available on add/remove for IE5.5, I would try that first. I also did a fresh install on MSN7 which involved a lengthy download, but after that I was able to remove most of it. It was...

    HP Pavilion Games on Win95

    The only thing that came with the PC is the recovery CD. It has a backup of all the original software, but doesn't give the option of restoring just those two. I really don't want all the others back on as they don't provide uninstall options so it is a pain to remove those that I don't use...

    HP Pavilion Games on Win95

    I am trying to help a friend restore two games on a HP Pavilion with a Win95 OS. The .exe files are missing from the system for them. I copied the .pak file which looks like it may contain the files that I need, but I have never unpacked anything. Is it similar to unzipping files? Is there a...

    MSN Messenger Hoax Hijack

    I finally got it fixed. Yes my OS is WIN95 and MSN6 (7) and 5.0 of MSN Messenger are the highest versions compatible with this system. I removed all traces of MSN Messenger, it didn't want to leave at first, but I convinced it. I took out that folder and searched the registry for any remaining...

    ScanDisk Error

    I ran the rescue disk again, this time just reinstalling the files and not formatting. The program created a backup of those it replaced and installed the rest and it seems to be running fine again now. But I called my tech and he has hard drive set aside for me just in case.

    ScanDisk Error

    Thank you Rose and everyone for all the help, I will try reformatting first as you suggested and keep my fingers crossed, but I think that you are right, it is most likely a sickly hard drive. tc

    ScanDisk Error

    I disabled the screen saver prior to starting, and I am running in MS-Dos so I did not have those other apps running. I was able to finally get scan to run and encountered more than 50 errors relating to various cluster groups, almost all were read/write errors that said data was most likely...

    ScanDisk Error

    I used the "First Aid Recovery Kit" that came with my Pavilion. It is a backup copy of all original data. You can chose to restore with or without reformatting. I chose reformat.

    ScanDisk Error

    I reformatted and reinstalled everything and then tried to refrag as it said that I could recover 13% but refrag failed saying I needed to run a thourogh scandisk. I tried to do that in MS DOS mode but it too aborted after about 10 hours of running. I downloaded a program called "disk checker"...

    ScanDisk Error

    I bought an old HP Pavilion 5030, running Win95 from a friend. He said that he removed “everything” from it and reinstalled the software, but I found all kinds of things still dangling out there. What he actually did, was run the “rescue” disk. I tried to run a thorough scan disk, but...

    MSN thinks I might have a virus

    I ran AdAware 5.0 which is the version that I have. I found Alexis, and removed it. The newer AdAware181 is compatible with WIN98 and up. LavaSoft said they do not have a current version for WIN95 users. I ran the registry cleaner program "EasyCleaner" and have attached that log. It seems that I...

    MSN Messenger Hoax Hijack

    MSN told me to download a new version of MSN messenger 5.0 and after I did, i was able to remove the old 4.6 version. But I still can't get MSN7 to install. I now get an error that says a resource is corrupt, but it doesn't say which one it might be. Support is now saying the is problem in...
