Preferred Solution: help finding accidentally deleted e-addresses

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: help finding accidentally deleted e-addresses

Hi booy72jp2001

Did you send an e-mail to any one of those addresses?
If so, check in your Sent Items folder.

If you haven't sent an e-mail message to the e-mail address or received an e-mail from that e-mail address, I don't know other than asking how you came by the addresses originally.

I inadvertantly deleted all of my saved email messages and address book when I deleted myself as a user in control panel/users (I was trying to deal with a Windows password that I could not remember).

When I re-created myself as a user on my computer, I found that all of my saved emails and my address book were no longer present in Outlook Express 5.0. Is there any way to retrieve this information? I'm using Windows 98 SE.

Thanks a Bunch!

I'm networking my house through wireless modems in my house, which are all connected to a computer. Everything is set up already, but I need the IP address, Subnet Mask, and the Gateway address of one of the computers, 'cause I want some of my computers to connect to it instead of the other modem. How do I find these addresses?
 

A:Finding the addresses

Wow, do you have me confused.

Most folks network their house using a router (or a wireless router) as the common point. If the router does not cover the entire house, they normally connect wireless access points to the router to extend the connectivity. All computers then connect to the wireless router, the wireless access point, or a switch connected to either one. Set DHCP on the router, and you are all set.

To get Internet access to all of the computers in the house, all you'd have to do is connect the wireless router to cable or DSL modem.

What the heck are you trying to do?

I read somewhere.... and don't hold me to this.... that one of the things that slows things while web surfing using dial-up is the fact that when you type in a url is that the browser must "look-up" or "find" the IP address..... or SOMETHING to that effect.

I have also heard that if you enter the IP address in your favorites instead of the standard www. url you can speed things up... even if slightly. When using dial-up I feel you need to gain every little advantage that you can.

Is this true? Is there any benifit in enetering the IP address of a site and if so..... how can I find a sites IP address?

I may be all wet here... and probably am.... but I thought of no other place to go to ask my stupid questions.........lol

No Yes Maybe.
Depends what you mean by all.

If I was a friend and came over to your house, then asked if I could
just check my emails real quick over at Yahoo! - my email address
would not appear on your computer.

On the otherhand, if you use Outlook Express or Windows Mail or
some other email client, the email accounts are at Tools->Accounts.
But if you have other users that have their own accounts that are
password protected, it poses a problem.

Hi, I have just been hired on by an IT department with several hundred computers and several subnets, and my boss has asked me to provide him with a range of a dozen or so available IPs on our network. I've only worked with networks that use static IPs. Here, they use DHCP and static addresses both. How can I figure out which IPs are available?

if someone has registered to a website using their email address and an alias so they won't be caught, is it possible to find them anyway? for example, my child has registered on a dating service site with his email address, and has a anonymous username for that site. if i google his email address and username nothing comes up from the query, but i have a hunch he's there. any ideas?
 

A:registered email addresses and finding them on sites

Most sites (including this one) don't display the user's email address anywhere. If they did, it would be a haven for spammers who collect good addresses. If you suspect it's an underage child, you might be able to contact the administrators of that site and ask that they investigate, but I doubt they'll be able to give you much detail, even if they do look into it.

So while i was going through my Zune media player software, i was deleting music that i just dont listen to anymore.
i have an 80g zune, and i had to free up space to sync up my library. Quite a bit of music.
So in about the 3rd hour of deleting music...i get delirious, and just start clicking at things and deleting.

Somehow, I (while holding ctrl to select music) hit ctrl+A and hit delete. Yep I deleted my entire library. I'm awesome...

Hi,

I have Windows 2000 Professional and while trying to delete the 'Brilliant Dig' spyware I also deleted HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\. And now I cant open some web pages especially the javascript links. It says 'Error on page'

Also, I cant open Microsoft Word anymore. If i try to do so it says: "the windows installer service could not be accessed. contact your support personnel to verify that the Windows Installer service is properly registered."

When I try to open a word document saved on my C\drive it says: "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel."

In addition to these, when I try to update my AVG Anti virus I receive a message like there is a problem with the interface and it fails to update.

And finally some options like start-search-all files and folders and edit-find (on this page) commands do not work.

Hope you can help me with this problem?

i needed to access win so i decided ( i had still some start up floppy disk ) to install win xp sp1 on my d-drive in order to access dive c. it worked. before i tried to boot and install from the installation disk but this didn't work. after " windows is inspecting your hardware" the screen went black.
now what can i do? on my d-drive are still this two partion from suse 9.0. the computer tells me, it's free space but i have no access. how can i recover this space to drive d?
what will happen when i delete win xp sp1 again? can i still boot up?

But my mouse and keyboard still work in boot menus and in the BIOS so I assume it is a driver issue! I have tried my mouse on other pcs and it works fine!!

I was just wondering if there is any possible way to fix this, like downloading the driver from the BIOS menu or something! I need my computer as soon as possible

I am using windows 7 if you're wondering with an MSI MS-7721 motherboard, AMD processor I'm not sure on much else I'm not really a tech guy

I hate to come here with tech related questions and/or problems, but I'm really stressed over something my dumb *** did tonight.

I have three hard drives - a 300GB PATA drive (D, a 300GB SATA (E drive that contains my Windows installation, and a 500GB PATA (G drive that contains a back up of the 300GB PATA drive (both of which contain all of my important files, such as music, games, ect.)

I've been having trouble with my Windows drive for a while now, as there is some sort of short that causes the SATA cable to not insert properly. I was having trouble getting Windows to even install tonight, so I did something monumentally stupid and installed my Windows disk into the DVD drive.

I went to Windows setup, figuring I could create a partition on the G drive and install Windows and thus throw out the failing E drive. I formatted a partition, which turned out to be on my D drive by mistake. After fumbling a bit, I finally have Windows up and running from the E drive (didn't complete the installation to G).

Problem is, now both of my G drive and D drive, which again contain all of my music, videos, ect. are gone! I tried Windows system restore and it did nothing. My D drive is showing up as empty with just the Windows directory, and the G drive is showing up as unformatted and unallocated.

So, is there anything I can do to recover my stuff? Or am I monumentally screwed?

I accidentally (I don't even know how I did it) deleted my account with ALL MY FILES ON IT! But I know my files are still on the hard drive and in the computer. Problem is when I try to access ''Documents and Settings'' my old account's folder is still there but It is blocked. I remember blocking other users from my files awhile ago but I need to get all my files back!

It won't let me enter my files. All it says is ''C:\DocumentsandSettings/Owner is not accessible.

Access is denied''

Is there any ways I can get these files? I heard I can somehow connect to another computer and send them. I don't know. Any programs I can use? I'll even buy. Please help.

You need to take posssesion of it since it is not recognizing your current User Name as having authority to access it.

In XP Pro you only neeed to right click on the directory and select the Security tab where you will find the option to add your user name to the permissions list.

In XP Home you must boot up in Safe Mode and do this.

Grandkids disabled McAfee Virus scan and I couldn't get it back. My mcafee cd said newer version was on computer and would not download. I went to mcafee website and cost was 40.00. Like an idiot i went to peer to peer site to get newer version and my computer was filled with filth and everything else. I then tried to delete all of the unwanted files and must have deleted some files i needed. Then I got Internet Explorer Active X errors and Netscape won't open. I tried to download my Internet Explorer from the version on my other computer but it won't take because it's a different operating system. Of course it told me to delete the existing version before it told me it would not download. Please help.

Do you have an XP CD (if you're running XP)?

I accidentally deleted a folder containing my music. This folder is separate from the actual "My Music" folder. Is there any way of restoring it?

So I have an ipod touch 4, and on my old computer the apps I downloaded were saved in one spot. Then, when I got my new computer, newer apps started saving in a new spot, and whenever an app was updated, it would be moved to the new folder.

I had assumed that all of my apps that I was still using had either been updated, or that just using them would lead to them being moved to the new folder, and so deleted the old folder, but I am now aware that that is not the case and some of my apps are no longer present on my computer.

Fortunately I have all of my apps backed up on my external hard drive, even those ones, though I'm worried that those ones may not be the most recent versions, and that in the case of some of my games the save files may be significantly far behind.

Oddly enough, the apps still appear in my itunes folder fine, other than that they have an exclamation point next to them and when I click "get info" they can't be found, but they still appear on my ipod and work fine and have the most recent saves, despite having synced my ipod to my computer multiple times since then.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I might fix this before I somehow end up losing the saves on these games?
