Preferred Solution: need some help with finding when i deleted an add on

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.)

A:Finding deleted program

Hi langfordj!!



Can you verify further the issue? Did you deleted or uninstalled the program? Or did you mean you deleted the icons?



If you mentioning that you actually uninstall the programs, you may try system restore as an options, but there is no guarantee you can get the program again. You might want to give it a try and see.

Strangely your editor does not allow me to enter a title Using Firefox.

Hello again,

No matter which undelete programme I try, not one of them will ever find a deleted file.

I copy a file to a directory on C: or D:, delete it and then empty the Recycle Bin. Whatever application I care to use, the file, which is very unlikely to have been overwritten, can not be found. No trace of it ever.

The undelete applications are on drive Z: so that running the undeleter should have no effect on drive C: or D: where the deletion has been done.

Is there something wrong with my discs, or is it the security app ? It worked in XP !

Hi, I was just wondering if there is a command prompt or anything else you can do to find out when a file was deleted.

I lost a bunch of downloaded files on the 24 of november this year and I was not on the computer that day, I did however have the computer with me and I believe someone I know deleted these files purposely.

I would obviously like to recover but that is not a big deal, however I am much more interested in finding out if the files were deleted on this day or when they were deleted.

If there is a log of when files deleted or something I can do to find out it would be of great help.

Thanks in advance.

A:Finding when a file was deleted

If they are still in the recycle bin then they should have a date of deletion marked .. you should be able to right click and select the column if it's not shown.

If the files have been deleted from the recycle bin then there are some pieces of software that can recover those files .. sometimes but not always the recovery software will notify you of the date and time deleted. It really depends upon the recovery software being used

Is there any free software online that is able to retrieve emails permanently deleted from an AOL account about 3 weeks ago? The email was also printed out that day in case if that helps in locating the lost email in some random sector of the hard drive.
Thanks!
 

A:Finding deleted emails

If the email was stored on the AOL server, and not downloaded in Outlook or Outlook express, you have zero chance of retrival, as it is stored on a server that you have no control over and would certainly be already written over.

If it did create a temporary spool file in memory while printing out, that will have been immediately deleted when the print operation finished.

If you actually downloaded it in Outlook or similar, then deleted it there is every liklihood it is in your email delected folder. But that is speculation as we don't know how it was accessed.

Will the techs uncover these files while they upload all my current material on my compyuter now to the server only to bring it back down from the server on a new harddrive containing XP. If so what can I do to prevent these files from being seen? Like I said it has been almost two years since i had these files on my computer and have long been gone.

Looking through my Document File "Alpha Address List"I accidently replaced the file with a Blank File of the same name . When I tried to open it there was nothing in there. I looked in the Recycle bin there were no files in there at all. Where had it gone ? How could I find it and restore it?

I believe I made a grave error next as I went into the Recovery Programme and picked a recovery point which was 4 or 5 days back from the day my "Alpha Address List" file went missing. When the restore had been completed I looked at the "Alpha Address File" and just a blank copy of that was there.

I realise now that all the recovery programme did was restore the Windows System Files and not the Office 10 personal document "doc" files.

It may be a lost cause now but is there any way I can retrieve the "Alpha Address List" file back .

Hello,

I apparently deleted some files, though precisely when is an open question (likely within the last 3 months). I have already run a few file recovery programs to no avail. The files are mostly scientific articles, so they are replaceable. The catch is I need to know which files that were deleted.

I know that Windows is renowned for the amount of data it logs about system activity. I was hoping that there is an access log buried somewhere that I could search for the folder names and find a list of the specific files that were deleted. Also, any recommendations on the program(s) that would be helpful in doing this. I am running Windows 7 Professional x64 on a Dell Latitude D830.

Thank you so much for any help you can offer

A:The possibility of finding a file access log detailing deleted files.

Windows does not log that kind of thing unless file system auditing is enabled and the appropriate options set. This is NOT enabled by default. This auditing would consume a large amount of disk space in quite a short period of time unless it is very selective.

The real solution to this kind of problem is to maintain backups of all important files. There are a variety of ways that data can be lost and not all are preventable and not all recoverable. You need to be prepared when (not if) something happens.

In my Ult. Vistax64, Windows update hangs. I tried numerous fixes from Microsoft (MrFixIt) and others. nothing seems to fix it, including a full system image restore from a month ago.

System Restore also seems to have had its restore points deleted as there are only two recent saved restore points/images.

And I have noticed that after booting up, and perhaps at other times, my CPU usage goes to 100%. Both the Windows update service is running (wuauserv) - see pic - and when I stop it, CPU usage gets better.


what is a bit concerning is that my McAfee virus is also taking up CPU usage as if transfer activity over the internet is heavy. No viruses are found, either via real-time scanning or if I run a manual scan on the hard drives.

I have also run an sfc /scannow , there are a lot of PendingRenames, which seem to be from the sfc command fixing errors, as well as a lot of "duplicate ownership...", which is sort of scary to see when I have a problem with my computer.

Besides the failure of the windows Update, the SFC /scannow keeps finding corrupt files and repairing them, and it does not seem just limited to a few that "are erroneously marked as corrupt" and not a problem, according to research into these problems.
The computer seems to be working fine, but not being able to install updates is a problem, and the high CPU usage is suspicious. Any help would be appreciated.

I have PeoplePC as my dial-up ISP and as of late there have been problems that have been happening more and more frequently that have made my surfing experience very unfriendly.

Half the time I go to send an email using my Outlook Express there will be a delay of anywhere from 15 to 30 or more seconds while it says something about CONNECTING or FINDING host. Eventually... It will send the email.

Same thing when surfing. Sometimes I will click on a link and NOTHING will happen. No hourglass... absolutely nothing and then finally, the page will start to load in.

Now... It's not a case where the page is slow to load after it is found. It seems like my PC has all this damn searching to do to find the damn site. I am very frustrated over this.

Some would suggest that this is part of the reality of having a dial-up connection but I have had dial-up for over 7 years and have had nothing like this occur nor as often.

Does this sound like it's an ISP issue? Or my PC? especially the email issue where it waits for sometimes up to 45 seconds while it looks for the host.

Just wondering if changing my ISP will fix this?

Thanks in advance

You will need to be signed on as a user that is part of the administrator account to delete the user account folder.

You can't associate the folder with a new user (well not easily) but you can copy the contents of documents, music etc to a new user.

Ok, so recently I changed the OS on my laptop from win 7 64 bit home edition to win 7 32 bit ultimate edition (in hopes of getting more performance out of my crappy processor). Well, everything went fairly smoothly until I started trying to download games and watch videos, and pretty much do anything related to the internet. The problem is that I'm connected to an unsecure connection (which does belong to me), it's a vonage router. On speedtest.net I had 1800 ping, 0.24 mb/s download, and like .01 mb/s upload. I'm using Comcast, so there's no reason for my internet to move that slowly, other than the fact that my router sucks. I also have another router, a linksys. The linksys router is awesome, and it's also secured with wep. Well, the wep key is very easy to find in windows 7 because you can just click the box saying "show characters". Unfortunately, xp feels the need to be a pain in the *** I've read a bunch of other forums and they all give the same advice, which is to log into my router. Well, my isp doesn't have the wep key, nor the username or password. Nor do I know. So that is not a viable option. I also have a desktop computer with xp installed. On that pc I am able connect to my linksys, but xp won't be cool enough to show me the wep... it just doesn't have that option anywhere that I could find.

A:Finding my wep

Well, I see that this thread has been getting alot of views, but no answers, so this problem must be a tough one. However, I went ahead and installed linux on my laptop and cracked the wep with that.

My computer no longer recognizes my flash drive. I can't find the E drive anymore. I have windows XP. How can I fix this problem?

I have been looking into buying some memory for my new pc, and was wondering what ram is compatible with the mobo. I have the QVL from ASUS, although, there is not much available under it. Although, my mobo (listed below) does run my Samsung DDR2 533 memory fine. I'm looking at 1-2 gigs right now. I'm a little stuck right now. Oh, and should I get 2X512 for 1 GB? Should I leap up to 2? If so, should I get 2X 1GB? Mobo takes DDR2 800, and DDR2 667 as well.
 

A:Help Finding Right RAM

Hello,I am getting a message every time upon reboot - 511- CPU fan not detected  Press F1 to continue. Then it starts to operate without problems. This is becoming bothersome.I detected that the dan does not spin every time i boot up the computer. Sometime it is not even spinning, so I think i have to replace it. Product name: p6-2469eoSKU Number: D2K69EA#UUWProcessor type: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-3350P CPU @ 3.10GHz  My question is which fan do I have to buy? I have found some on the internet but i don't know if it is compartiable with the computer. I will post some links of these I have found to get some feedback, and I hope you can guide/provide me with the relevant information for a new fan. Link 1: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thermaltake-CPU-Cooling-Fan-for-Intel-Core-i7-i5-i3-CLP0556-B-/302206316659?... Link 2: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2322090.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.TRS0&_nkw=92x92x25m... Thanks in advance.
