Preferred Solution: SCROLL UNLOCK

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a Vista home premium Thirty Two bit on a HP DV Six Thousand laptop.
A few days ago, I have no idea how, but the scroll lock has been turned on. This is also the num lock key. so now my down and right arrows don't work and neither do my number keys, except numbers 6 and 5. Please help. The signs that are doubled up with the number keys don't work either since the num ock is on. This is so frustrating. How can I turn this scroll lock / num lock key off?
Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Western Digital WD My Passport 2 TB external hard drive
Western Digital's security software allows a password to be set on the external drive, encrypting it. When the drive is connected to a PC, a virtual CD (VCD) partition runs (via autorun) an unlocker utility WD Drive Unlock.exe, that allows password entry.
When I connect the locked drive to a Windows 7 PC (that does not have any WD software installed), the autoun popup appears and I select "Run WD Drive Unlock.exe". At that point, User Account Control (UAC) elevation prompt appears, requiring Administrator
password in order to continue.
WD Drive Unlock then lets me enter password.
Because of UAC elevation, the unlocker can be used only by an Administrator user or by a standard user account who knows the Administrator password.

Is UAC elevation prompt truly necessary?
Is it appearing because Western Digital hasn't coded the unlocker exe correctly, or would any such utility require UAC elevation?

I'd like to find a way that a standard user account can run the unlocker to enter passsword and access the external drive, without having to know the Windows Admin password.

Just received my yoga and downgraded to windows 7, even with the vertical scroll set to one line, the trackpoint is very sensitive. Also there is a initial lag with the trackpoint scroll, if I'm using the trackpoint for the first after a webpage turn, the first light touch is not registered, you have move the trackpoint very hard, which caused the page to move very fast down the page. Overall using the trackpoint on the yoga 460 (maybe with W10, it is different), has been an aweful experience so far, is there a patch or update that I didn't know about? Btw, I have Elan pointing device installed, I can not find Ultranav anymore, why is that? Elan pointing device seem to have less function than Ultranav.

Additionally, it it possible to make the scroll bar transparent but still keep the box that move (or change opacity settings at all)?

What about changing the color of the scroll bar? I always have trouble seeing the box because it is gray on gray.

In Windows XP if a user locked their pc I could simply unlock it using my user name and password because I am the network administrator. This does not seem to work in Windows 7. Is there some setting to return to the way it used to be in XP?

A:Unlock pc

unfortunately; i do not believe there is a way to do such a thing because windows 7 is pretty much a updated version of windows vista whereas xp was completely different in terms of the architecture of the operating system as vista and 7 I would say are more secure than xp by a long shot.

Q: Unlock

How can I unlock the hard drive


Hi, and welcome to TSG.

That would depend on the details and specifics about the hardware, operating system, and how the drive was locked; none of which you have shared with us.

Hey guys, i'm currently running a system with a p4p800 se m/b and a p4 2.4Ghz proc. with 1.5gb of ddr 400 ram 2 X 512mb and 2 X 256mb. The problem i'm having is that, my bios sets my fsb at 133 and my ram speed to 266mhz, what i'd like to know is if there is a custom bios or something that can help me unlock the multiplier. I have overclocked my processor to 3.2Ghz and it's running cooler with my cpu cooler but that only pushes my ram to 333mhz. Can you help me?

A:P4 Cpu unlock?

P4s are multi locked. There are hardware hacks to unlock however I never recommend doing so.

If it is just that your ram speed increases and you do not want it to, just use a lower divider or ram speed. When you raise the fsb, it is back to where it should be.

I do have PC based on Gigabyte 970A-DS3P motherboard, I bought it already assembled, and out of the box it had this 3TB Hdd Unlock program installed. I would have to reinstall my system soon and I was wandering what exactly this software is for? What is it do? Will I need it when I'll reinstall my system or not really?

A:3TB Hdd Unlock

It's most likely intended to allow you to see and be able to use all of a large drive.

Windows can only see and utilize about 2.2 TB on a drive that is initialized as MBR. If you had a 3 or 4 TB drive, the portion above 2.2 would be useless and not even visible.

The standard way around that is to initialize as GPT, rather than MBR. GPT doesn't have that 2.2 TB limitation.

BUT--some motherboard manufacturers have provided downloadable software that can overcome the MBR limitation. It tricks Windows, so that you can see and use the portion above 2.2 TB. I'm not sure if it's usable on drives larger than 3 TB. I'm pretty sure that's what Gigabyte has provided to you in this case. I'd guess you have a 3 TB drive and the builder knew of the limitation, so used this special Gigabyte download.

It doesn't have anything to do with installing Windows per se. If your drives are under 2.2 TB you don't need it or if you can initialize the drive as GPT rather than MBR, you don't need it. Otherwise, you do need it, unless you don't care about not being able to use all of a large drive.

I have recently downloaded some blank census forms ,from Ancestry, which are in pdf format.

My intention was to extract data from the census relevant to my ancestors and fill in the blank forms and store on my hard drive, rather than print the form fill in by hand and keep a hard copy. However I cannot type any data onto the form as I suspect the form may be protected.

I downloaded a trial version of abode acrobat pro but I wasn't able to do what I wanted. The nearest I came to it was by using the "typewriter" tool. But this was rather long winded as I had to open the tool , type in the information in the relevant field and reopen the tool before I could type in the next field (unless I was doing something wrong).

Is there any way I can unlock the files to be able to type in the relevant fields.

The forms can be found here http://www.ancestry.co.uk/charts/ukcensus.aspx

Thanks for any suggestions.

A:unlock pdf files

Does the site want you to pay for the form first or is it supposed to be all free to take and modify?

I was running Windows 10 and there was some sort of error that forced my computer to shut down and restart. When it did, bitlocker was asking for a recovery key. I used the recovery key that is listed on my Microsoft account (I made sure that the key ID
matched the one displayed on the computer) but it said that the key was wrong. 
After attempting this a few times, I gave up and hit "skip this drive." Since then, that drive is completely locked.
Since my computer has two operating systems, the second being an old Vista install, the Vista started up. I used the command prompt (in Administrator mode) and ran the manage-bde -status command. 
the output was as follows
Volume G: [Label Unknown]
[Data Volume]
Size: Unknown GB
Conversion Status: Unknown
Percentage Encrypted: Unknown%
Encryption Method: Unknown
Protection Status: Protection Off
Lock Status: Locked
Automatic Unlock: Disabled
Key Protectors: None Found

I've tried to add a key protector, but it will not let me. I tried to unlock with manage-bde -unlock g: -recoverykey.
I tried to unlock using manage-bde -unlock g: -recoverypassword.
Nothing is working. I never lost my unlock password and I've tried using that too but it didn't work. 
I have even tried manage-bde -forcerecovery g: and get: ERROR: No recovery methods exist for Volume G:.
I tried to use manage-bde -protectors -add and got an error because it was locked. 
What is next?

A friend has Vista (Home Edition) and accidentally clicked on the Lock button.

Now when she tries to boot up all she gets is a black screen.

I am not familiar with Vista but wondered if booting into Safe Mode and doing a System Restore would work. Last time I suggested a System Restore she said there were no recent points and she had to go back weeks.

Is there any other option in Safe Mode to get her booting normally again? Her computer is only a year old and she did not receive a Vista disc with it


A:Vista won't unlock

Shut down the computer for a cold boot. Tap the "F8" key as you are booting.

Select "Safe Mode with networking" from the boot menu.

Log into windows Vista with your personal account that holds the administrator access.

Open a command window (START--->RUN--->CMD.exe). At the command prompt type the following "net user administrator /active".

And that&#8217;s it. Log out and log back in as administrator.
