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.)

hi all
first i am sorry i am so much biggenr in the networking issues
anyways

i have an access point device , and i have windows 7 on my computer , can i share my files through my the wireless so i can access to them by using another computer having a wireless adapter ?

if yes so how can i do that

i hope someone helps me

thank you
 

A:can i use an ACCESS POINT device to share my files through a network ?

If you have computers on the same local area network (LAN) they can communicate with each other. If you connect the computers to the ACCESS POINT device (I assume this is a wireless access point, or WAP) the computers can file share.

Short description for Windows 7 and 8 file and printer sharing:

Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private' (or 'Home' or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Private or Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

You may want to change the Workgroup name. To check it or change it right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).

One of my co-workers has been having this odd problem and I'm not sure what to make of it.

On occasion, she goes to open an INDD (Adobe InDesign) file which is stored on our Windows 2003 server, and it opens as "read-only." She opens the file to make changes and can't because InDesign won't let her save any changes to the file.

There's no apparent reason for this - she has full access to the file, the file's read-only bit has not been set, and there's plenty of space on the server.

What she usually does to get around it is to "Save As..." over the file she's just opened. That normally works. On occasion this doesn't work and she has to "Save As..." to her desktop, then "Save As..." back over the original. It's a pain for her at the very least.

She has this problem at least a few times during the week.

What's odd is that I've checked the "open files" list on that Windows 2003 server when she gets the error. Her workstation suddenly opens a whole handful of zip files located on the same Windows 2003 server (some of our digital artwork comes in zip packages). They are opened in read mode only (READ, not READ-WRITE).

When she does her "save as..." and gets past the error, the read locks/handles on the zip files are closed also. The ZIP thing sounded suspicious to me and I scanned her computer (as well as the ZIPs) for viruses. Nothing came up. I have since eve... Read more

A:INDD file opens read-only, ZIP files suddenly open in BG

I've encountered this same problem. Is she using a Mac? If so, I've noticed that OS X wants to create a little image preview when you select a file in the Finder. Some files take longer than others to render the preview. If she opens the file before the Finder is finished rendering, it will open as Read-Only. I believe this is due to the fact that the Finder is still using the file when CS tries to open it. Simple fix: Wait until the Finder finishes creating the preview, then open the file.

Microsoft word starter using windows 10 opens my files occasionally in read only format and I have tried just about every suggestion in your forum within my limited skills but I offer this in the hope it might help - I notice it is most likely to occur
if opening a file from within the software, if one steps outside and opens it from the desktop it is more unlikely to happen.  When previously using compatibility mode it did not happen but that did not like files that contained any downloaded pictures
with the hyperlink still active. When re-opening them subsequently they could not be edited until clicking on "edit now" which is why I used the

conversion option only to get this problem which is annoying and not good enough.

Hi, I have a simple network at home that consists of 2 PCs connected via a crossover cable. They are both running Windows XP Pro. I ran the network wizard on both machines and can share the internet connection fine. However neither computer can share files with the other or share the printer.

When I set folders to ?share this folder on the network? the folder is not visible on the other computer. Both computers have IP addresses set, however neither computer is able to ping the other.

When Computer.A (host of the internet connection) goes to Start -> My Network Places -> ?view workgroup computers? all that shows up in the list is Computer.A.

However if I try to go to ?view workgroup computers? on Computer.B I get the following error message:

?Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator etc.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available?

I have searched the forums and found various steps that I have tried, but I still am not able to get this to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 

A:Can share internet but can't share files

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

The quickest fix is a router/hub rather than peer to peer cable.
Do you have file and print sharing turned on?
Try setting up network wizard to something other than "MSHOME"
You might have only internet sharing turned on.
Did you create the files for network or just "finish network setup",
in the wizard?

This has helped me by setting guest password.

Protect your guest account - The guest account can be used by hackers and/or malware to gain greater access to your machine, even when turned off. The guest account can't be removed. However, you can disable it, but this can affect the functionality of your computer. Instead, what you can do, and what you probably should do, is put a strong password on it, and then leave it safely turned off. You do this by opening a command window (start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter). at the command prompt, type net user guest <password> (where <password> is your chosen password, being something you can remember). After hitting the enter key, the guest account will be password protected. If your machine is networked and authenticating as guest, then you'll need this password to access network shares - if you tell it to remeber the password, it will only ask the once.Click to expand...

Hi All
I am still getting to know Win 7 and my new Dell XPS. I have Word 2010 on this machine I transferred over my older files, Word 97-2003. Most open fine in compatibility mode. I can change them and save no problem. I opened one particular Word 97-2003 file today that opens as read only. Properties box is not checked read only and other similar files in the same folder open fine. I can?t see any difference and am a bit mystified why this particular file will only open as read only.
Any Thoughts?
Best Regards

A:File only opens as Read Only

The file could have been already open or it is reserved for someone to open it by another user.

Try open the file then go to File Menu and click "file save as" then assign a new name to the file. In this way, you can delete the old file and rename the file that you just saved to the original file name.

My PC is running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I have shared a few folders using advanced sharing. I have given 'Everyone' read permission to the folder. To test this I use my laptop which is running the same OS, press WinKey+R and enter \\<IP-address>. Windows then prompts me for username and password. The same happens if I try to connect directly to the directory by entering \\<IP-address>\<directory>. How can I access my files without having to log in with my account on the PC that is sharing files? All I wan't to do is to give ANYone on the network read permissions. They shouldn't have to authenticate.

A:Public read permission in SMB share

Thanks for your reply!

The reason that I can't use authentication is that I will be hosting a file server for a LAN gaming event, and it has to be really easy for the clients so they don't have to make adjustments. I think I should just stick with a local web server.

You said that those steps were necessary to make Windows 7 work with older servers, but the thing is, both the server and the client that I have been testing are running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

i can still 'customize' the folder, and delete the folder, but i can not uncheck the read only attribute, or hide the folder or make the folder an archive folder.

I have several Access database files on a network server. The Access database files were created in Access 2003/XP. The database files are access by two users. One user has Office 2007 and the other has Office XP. Occasionally, when the user who has Office 2007 opens a database file, it is Read Only... (This recordset is not updatable. You must save a copy). For this user, all database files also opens as Read Only. Before the Office 2007 user can make changes or update data, a copy of the database file must be saved. This must also be done for each database file on the network that this user accesses. Over the past 6 months, I have saved the database files (with a different name) a few times. After which, the database files are OK until a month or so later. The user with Office 2003 doesn't experience any probems with the database during the time.

I have done some searching on the particular problem but haven't found much. Much of what I found was make sure the file(s) are not marked read only and the locked file for the database was not still active. I've checked each time and the files are not read only and the locked database files were not hung up.
The other user is always able to access and update the database files without any problems.

Is there something in Access 2007 that I am missing or don't have set properly?

Thank you,
Janet

A:Access 2007 occasionally opens as Read Only!

I found a couple of files here and elsewhere with .reg extensions that were supposed to make the necessary registry changes. eg. "UnlockWord.reg" and a more elaborate-looking "office security.reg". All that happens when I left-click on the file and thenleft-click on "Run" is the files opens in Notepad and has no effect.

What do I need to do to have the .reg files change the registry to Unblock my Word97 files ?

A:.reg files open Notepad - do not change registry to read older files

Hello SausalitoWalt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check in Default Programs to make sure that the reg file extension is set to have it's Current Default program set as Registry Editor (C:\Windows\regedit.exe). Afterwards, try merging the REG file again to see if it will now.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello,

First time on this forum, so I hope I chose the right category to post my problem. I just got a new laptop, and it has Vista Home Premium.

My problem.. I use a program/application called "DVArchive" (aka: DVA) for archiving my tv shows on my PC (from my ReplayTV). This application worked just fine on XP, but of course, Vista is giving me all kinds of crap.

The application IS working.. It can see my ReplayTV unit, I can access my archived shows, etc. However, Vista is giving me error messages, which are interfering with it and making it crash.

The problem has to do specifically with the applications configuration (.XML) files. I'm pretty tech saavy, but I'm not a computer expert, so I'll just cut and paste the actual error messages below. The listed pathways are where DVArchive stores it's files...

First of all, I want to point out that I have very little knowledge of technology.

I have a NTFS Seagate 2TB Go Flex Desk external hard disk drive. A couple months ago, I found that it had a problem where my laptop could detect it, but couldn't access it and needed to "reformat" it. I left it alone for a while.

Recently, I tried plugging it in again, and behold, it seemed to work okay and I could see all the files and so on. I tried chkdisk without the fixing part (/f). I didn't want to "fix" it until as last resort because it seems to imply some data will be lost. It said there were a lot of bad sectors.

I couldn't read some of the files (most of them were rar files) in my hard disk, and had "read error" and "data error (cyclic redundancy check)". So I basically moved all the files which were normal out of the disk as I couldn't move the others ("can't read from source file or disk") and now I'm left with the broken files, most of which are important. 40gb of 16,000 files.

Is there any hope for me to recover those files? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: after this, how would I deal with the bad sectors?
 

A:Disk read error for files in the harddrive, want to recover files.

OK! The bad sectors are always one of the killers of data on a hard drive. That’s why we are always asked to back up our needed data at least on two separate drives. So, in the future, you should learn to keep at least two copies of your important data on separate drives or locations.
But, right now, since your drive still could be read on your computer, you could try to run some data recovery programs to take chances. Nowadays, many data recovery programs are developed to help people resolve these troubles.

But, if you are not sure, you could firstly try some drive data recovery freeware such as Recuva, TestDisk and iCare Data Recovery Free, etc.
But, if any data recovery software could not make a difference, you could consult a data recovery expert for help and prepare enough money for it.

Good luck!

Michael
 

A:share files

First off,

In vista you need to make sure that the File/Printsharing option is on

Start>Right Click Network> Properties

That will open up the sharing center. You need to make sure that the sharing option is on.

On the XP Machine

start>My Computer

Right click on the folder called "Shared Folder"
Properties
Tab "Sharing"
At the bottom under "Network Sharing"
Click on the text saying "If you understand......"
Select "Just enable File Sharing"

When this is all done, Go back to the Vista crate

Start > Network

You shoud then see your other computer apear after a Min or Two

You can get more info on Vista Sharing Here

A:Cant share files? Huh?

Can you ping by computer name or only by IP address?

Have you enabled file and printer sharing? Exactly what do you do to try to see shared folders, and what happens?

A:how to share files with xp and seven?

Hi, a good website to have a look at would be Share Files and Printers between Windows 7 and XP - How-To Geek ; it has a very detailed guide on how to configure both computers to get them sharing files and printers over a network.

If this fails to work, which can be the case with these temperamental machines, especially over wireless networks, and if both PCs have bluetooth you could try transferring it via that.

Hope this helps, Oli
