I want to copy all my pictures from one drive to an external drive and the only way I know how is to search "jpg" and cut and paste, is that the easiest way?
I will use that feature as I am using Picasa anyway and I think this is the updated version too because I was using an older version of Picasa.
I've got an old Point of sale PC loaded with Win XP pro that I decided to use for browsing.
Installed Chrome and then proceeded to load anti virus.
From google I couldn't access any anti virus websites or even forums (???)
Wiki and other sites loaded fine.
I then set the pc to start in safe mode via msconfig.
Now not only will it not enter safe mode it keeps rebooting,even if I select the start Windows normally option.
I removed the HDD and connected it to another PC as a slave and did a full security essentials and malwarebytes scan.Malware revelealed 5 threats which I removed but the problem still persists.
F8 and removing the restart on boot failure option takes me to a blue screen.
Is there a virus that causes the problem if yes how do I remove it?
Ouch... sounds like a badly messed up operating system.
If you can get into safemode with command prompt you can try repair windows files with the sfc /scannow command.
But, I would do a format and fresh install at this point... sounds too infested and beyond repair perhaps.
I wanted to copy movies to my eldest daughters laptop but it took like a half hour to load and I think it was all those "startup" programmes she has on her pc that was talking so long so I want to disable some that she is not using so it loads quicker but don't know where to find the section where to do this, she is running Windows XP.
I am running Windows 7 and want to look where the program is on my pc so I know what to do when I see her again, unless Win XP and WIN 7 have different setting.
