My nephew called yesterday and said when he tried to put his Dell laptop back to the factory default, he said the operating system was deleted. I believe he said it was Windows 8 or 10, but I'm not 100% sure.He said he thought the factory default meant the way it was when he bought it. He had alot of college work on it that he no longer needed and thought it would be quicker to go back to the factory default than to delete all the files he wanted to get rid of one at a time. He does have a recovery disk that he plans to try. Is there anything in particular he should know about using the recovery disk.

Someone put my desktop contents in my contacts folder, so then I went into the contacts folder and dragged everything onto my desktop again. I deleted everything from the contacts folder so I didn't have duplicates, didn't want to take up space.

And nothing is in the recycle bin, I pretty much deleted everything I had saved on my desktop

I accidently deleted the desktop folder that holds most things like documents, downloads, google drive, dropbox, etc. I checked the recycle bin but it's now there. I searched on C drive and, of course, it's not there. I found it or something similar in File Explorer (but with a new name I believe). I copied the entire folder to the desktop. Now, when I add something to dropbox (one of the folders in the folder I deleted) the document is in dropbox on their website, but not in dropbox in the folder on the desktop that I just copied to. So....
QUESTION: How do I locate the folder I accidently deleted that originally contained many important files (e.g., AppData, contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Dropbox, favorites.... music, pictures) etc.?

I was in the process of "sending to" the information from the original desktop folder to Dropbox as a backup - when the computer hiccupped or whatever and instead of clicking send to, clicked delete. The folder disappeared and is NOT in the Recycle Bin. Except for the one I found in the File Folder with a different name, I can't find what I deleted. Help.

I recently trying to get rid of a virus that changed by desktop background. I found a website that suggested that I delete a certain registry from regedit. The registry I deleted was --- (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System)

The problem now is that I have no background at all and I cannot insert one either. If someone knows how to fix this please let me know.

I accidently deleted my preconfigured RAID (striped) system on my desktop PC (just one hd) via using the BIOS Nvidia option "delete RAID". Is there any chance to REBUILD this RAID-Setup again? I tried it by using the "new RAID" option and added my HD - but it won't boot. So far I did NOT change the MBR and of course I was not formatting the disk. Thanks a lot for your help. And YES - to do this had been a REALLY silly idea ... ;-)

Before posting my question I want to say you have a wonderful website and so much helpful information. I have always been the person who "fixes" computer issues for friends, family, and coworkers. I usually can help, but know when I am out of my league and when to ask for only stop a running process one time when it crashes your computer!

My niece just gave me her computer to "fix" after being at college for 2 1/2 years. She knew it had problems, but even the paid "professionals" never truly got rid of her underlying issues. They just removed some of the symptoms for awhile. So, I thought "no problem". But after 30 hours of running multiple scanning softwares for multiple malware & virus issues I still wasn't getting to the root of the problems. In the meantime I found your website!!!

Today I was researching your site to figure out how to present my niece's computer issues to you. I was ready to give up. But then I read your articles and multiple user posts along with your "fixes" that had many of the same issues I was having. After several hours of research I attacked my niece's computer one more time.

I did the following four things: 1) found .dat files, renamed them to .txt, am currently changing passwords; 2) ran SDfix.exe; 3) ran vundofix.exe; and 4) removed Viewpoint Media Player. And "knock on wood" my issues appear to be resolved!!!!... Read more

A:Safe To Delete A Registy Key Entry?

Before making any changes, Always back up your registry. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own.Why not try this first. Download AutoRunsCreate a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if your not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the one you need to remove.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and it should be gone.

Hi all,
I have a packard Bell netbook and while it was starting up the other day I began to get a littl fed up of the anoyying vista bootscreen because of the 1024x600 display.
Does anybody know if there is a registry entry and were it is so that I may be able to force it to display the windows 7 bootscreen?

A:Registy entry for windows 7 bootscreen?

This issue had been unsuccessfully discussed at the forum.

There is no registry tweak simply because registry (along with drivers and other stuff) is loading after bootscreen is shown. Information about resolution is taken from firmware just before that.

Anyway I have not seen universal working solution for that problem for screens smaller than 1024 x 768.

Hi everyone hope you can help . . . This is my first post, so forgive me if I mess up.

I have accidently deleted a file on my C drive . . . C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
It is the Temporary Internet Files and is now causing problems.
If I run CCleaner it Hangs/Freezes, when it comes to that file and even Task Manager will not close it! I can't even restart the PC, I have to crash out.
When I then restart, CCleaner is closed but the samething happens if I run it again.
I have tried to create the file again, but it says "Confirm folder Replace" This destination already contains a folder named Temporary Internet Files . . . Do you still want to merge this folder.
If I say yes, it still doesn't appear. I have Administrator privileges and it is not hidden (I have a reasonable knowledge of computing)
Hope somebody can put me on the right track.

Hello, I was trying to expand a partition but deleted a partition in the process. I have a SSD and HDD the the partition which took about half of the HDD space.
On the HDD was a storage partition, system reserved and the deleted partition. So it is currently unallocated. I've tried running recovery programs they find it but
it will cost me money to restore it since I'm using the free version. What should I do now? I've attached a picture of what it looks like currently
I've tried using testdisk I cant really understand it.

A:Accidently deleted partition

Was the partition you deleted = to the unallocated space or was E: the partition you were expanding. Did you actually expand E: or stop after you deleted your partition? The less you write to E: the better as this could be overwriting data you are trying to recover if E: was indeed expanded into your previous partition space. If the unallocated space was equal to the partition you deleted and E: was not expanded then you have a good chance of recovery.
Do you have an external drive with enough free space to recover your data?

One of the Wild Tangent games locked up, decreased size and tried to do the task master to get it to close.  But was able to bring up the wild tangent game list - couldn't see the whole list as it was hidden under the game that was stuck on my screen.  Therefore when I made a guess, I accidently deleted the whole Wild Tangent Game App and it automatically took away the HP Games.  I tried to download the wild tangent game app and it will not allow me too.   Checked and made sure it was still not on my apps/programs and it wasn't.   Even did a recovery back a few days and still the system will not allow me to download the app.   Any help at there?

A:Accidently deleted EXPLORER.EXE

Okay, well.. you shouldn't have been able to delete explorer in the first place - It is very hard to do.

Explorer is basically the thing that lets you use your computer. Here, Refer to this post -

or try this.

Fire up the task manager, run cmd and then c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe from the command prompt (edit the command if you didn't install windows in c:\windows). See if system restore can rescue explorer for you. If that doesn't work, run appwiz.cpl from the command prompt. This will fire up the add/remove programs panel. Uninstall sp2 and your old explorer.exe should work again. If you want sp2, reinstall it. Then make a fresh copy of the sp2 version of explorer.exe and store as backup. Make another copy to feed to resource hacker.

Help me restore my accidently deleted Adobe Photodeluxe 4.0 pictures. The thumbnails are still in My Photos. The thumbnails have an inverted green triangle with an exclamation point and says the file does not exist. It seems to me that if I can see them as a thumbnail there must be some way to recover them.
Please help me - my Trash can is empty so no luck there.
Carol in Michgian

A:HELP accidently deleted Pdd's but thumbnails still there

Those aren’t really Photodeluxe pictures. They are simply defaulted to open in that program. You could change that association with a couple of clicks to the Windows Picture and Fax viewer or Irfanview and every JPG on your computer would suddenly stop being a Photodeluxe file. Nothing would have changed in the file except what program would open if you clicked it.

I’m guessing you are looking at Photodeluxe when you see the thumbnails and get the message. It isn’t common for My Pictures or the Windows file system to give that message and keep thumbnails for photos that were deleted. Since the photos didn’t show up in your recycle bin it is possible Photodeluxe just lost track of them.

Write down the file name of one of the images then close Photodeluxe. Start > My Documents > My Pictures and see if they are there.

If they aren’t in My Pictures, Start > Search > All Files and Folders. Type in the file name of the picture and “Search”.

So I downloaded a new anti-virus program and foolishly I just let it automatically remove all threats without checking what was being quaratined/deleted. It quarantined/deleted my winlogon.exe so when I restarted my computer it will just restart over and over again.

Then I tried to boot from my windows XP disc so I could access the command prompt to put this in:
copy d:\i386\winlogon.ex_

Although before I can get there this message always comes up:
Stop: c0000221 unknown hard error

So does anyone have advice as to how I can get my winlogon.exe that's been removed from my system32 folder back to where it belongs?

Is there an easier way to do this other than using my windows xp disc? such as burning a new winlogon.exe to a cd and copying/pasting it from that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A:Accidently deleted/quarantined my winlogon.exe

you could use something like BartPE, Linux Live or Symantec Ghost to copy the file outside of Windows or the recovery console.

Worse case scenario you could try a repair install but you'd have to get all the Windows updates again after doing that.

Earlier last month the SRS premium sound 'audio enhancement' feature stopped working on my computer, just as it did to the user in the following thread although I haven't upgraded.  I hadn't done anything it just stopped working for no reason. It's very annoying as the speakers on this computer are just too quiet without this enhancement, especially when streaming films online - even at full volume you can't hear the dialogue very well.  I researched the problem and found a link to a driver that would make my speakers louder, it worked but it sounded terribly overdriven (I can't remember what this driver was called), anyway, that has stopped working too.  And then I discovered that whatever I had downloaded  had deleted the SRS software/driver from my computer, the icon was no longer in the 'Hardward and Sound' panel. I have tried to find the SRS Premium Sound software to re-install it on my computer but all I can find is a different version with a small interface that doesn't seem to do anything. It's too late to do a system restore as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having difficulty recovering someone's Outlook Express emails and was hoping someone might have a solution to this (w/o the use of 3rd party apps):

The main OE mail folder and backup folders were accidently deleted. When they were deleted, a message said the Recycle Bin was full and "would you still like to continue deleting them"-or something like that. And they were deleted. Now I'm trying to recover those dbx's. I ran ActiveUndelete 5.1 and it found some dbx's-probably all the folders but they were empty when I brought them back into OE.

There are too many recovery email programs out there to run and test, so if someone can provide better help to get these emails back in OE, I would appreciate it!!! Thanks

I am not sure what procedure you used to install, so I will just start from square one. == Put the Windows DVD in the DVD drive. Boot your computer. This should get you up and going to install. When you get Windows installed you can then adjust your partitions. === You said above "you were unable to install the new OS". What problems did you have?

So i duess my spybot deleted csrss.exe
because now when i start up my com,
these errors pop up about csrss.

I'm not that good with computers
so i have no clue what to do.
help me...

I've found a registry mechanic support software
which might fix it
but i need to pay to use the full version
which will fix the problems.
If i just use the trial version,
my only option is to delete the problem areas
and i'm not sure that's a good thing.

Is it safe to just continue with the software and delete?
Do u guys know any other software that does the cleanup too
but can fix as well... and is free?

Ok....I'm really having a bummed week with my computer. In the XP forum I've been getting tons of help. Because I'm having some problems, I feel that I need to copy my document folder onto a CD. So.

A:accidently deleted Administrator Account

Were you running the actual normally-hidden Administrator account or a User account with administrative rights? For normal/standard use I've not seen where that hidden account could be easily deleted but I guess if someone works at it they could be successful. It's hidden by default and has to be activated for temporary use then deactivated [probably to protect us from our own foibles].

While playing around with Command Prompt I accidently deleted the users on my computer. Now when i logon to the "Select User" screen there are no users listed and cannot logon. Please help.

A:HELP! Cannot Logon... Accidently deleted users

You accidentally deleted the users on your computer? You'll have to explain how you've done this? did you delete the user folder's in "Documents and Settings"?

This could be recoverable, but the way i'd go about it is in a way quite long winded and you need a copy of XP (not for a complete re-install or anything, it's a requirement for a copy of bartPE)... then either a usb stick or CD-r/rw and access to another pc...

If you want details on how to fix it using this (long) method then please reply (including details of how you deleted the users)...

Actually i have another idea, re-boot your pc and boot in safe mode (to see the administrator account):

- reboot
- tap F8 until you see a "configure how windows starts" screen [or something like it]
- choose "Boot in safe mode"
- if there's an administrator account then try log into it (I think by default there is no password so just clicking administrator will log you in)..
if you cant log on as administrator then you may have problems fixing it...

Now, you need to find a way to download the program "Free Undelete":

- To do this either:
> [i can't remember if internet functionality is the same in safe mode or not] but try download it
> or you could download it then copy it onto the pc through a memory stick

As the drive is dying but not there yet...hense the new drive...the drive still works and still had some information that I needed to save and now it is gone. I explained it badly but how to I restore an 'unallocated' space to what it was before without spending a lot of money on a new program.

Hi and thanks for all your help! I was running SuperAntispyware on my HP XPSP3 computer. I scan the PC and it completes. It finds some infected items. Six items I care nothing about bc they were on the nonbooting hard drive that has old files on it. I may have deleted them anyway, but it didn't matter. However, one of the files was C:/Windows/makhkdll.dll. I wouldn't have deleted the file without a confirmation, but--while I was fidgeting with my problematic android phone--a funny thing happened. I thought I was only deleting one of the other 6 files, but to my surprise all of them deleted. I gives me the option to reboot, but I haven't even dared reboot yet due to concern. Could this be a big problem, a small one, or is this a trojan as Superantispyware and some other sites hint at? The file seems to be linked directly to HP and makhkey.exe somehow. Did I get lucky? If it is negative, what can I do now? I have no discs. Please help! Any help would be appreciated.Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Have anyone still the shortcut. Just upload it i know how to use it.

A:Accidently Deleted My shortcut to install Windows 8

You should most likely have downloaded the .iso file, not the .wim. If you install the .wim then the only way you can recover is to do a Clean Install of Win 7. If you use the .iso then you can install to another partition or drive, setting up a dual boot.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview: frequently asked questions

Once Windows 8 Consumer Preview is downloaded, you choose how and when to install it. You can install on the current drive or you can make an ISO or bootable flash drive for installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview on another partition, virtual machine, or another PC (requires Windows Vista or Windows 7).

Edit: Sorry, I didn't answer your question. Do you have Hidden files being shown? Also, the file you downloaded should have been Windows8-ConsumerPreview-setup.exe. Did you delete that as well? When you ran it, is that when C:/WindowsESD was created?

Edit#2: I see now the .exe is only the download front end, sorry.

Edit#3: I'm downloading it now to see what it leaves. Hope to have more info in a little while.

Faithful One


I think you're OK as long as you didn't empty your "deleted Items" folder. I have done this many times in both Outlook and OE. If you have emptied your "Deleted Items" folder, I think you're hosed.

If you don't already have it setup to view the folders, do so--View>Folder.

Click on your "Deleted Items" folder to display its contents.

If your accidentally deleted folder is in there, simply click and drag it back to where it should be. Normally this would be under the Personal Folders area.

Good luck.

the screen also showed the microsoft acount name but here also the password dident work (probably because a deleted them both from the system...)

So now I cant access windows.

Please halp me.

thank you.

I messeded up big time

"I'm going to drawn myself, you can be just like me" (M'n'M) puke:

Allright what happened:

Reading around the board, this section particularly, and having recently converted gear and OS, I thought it was time to clean up my HDD's, and reschedule partitions.
I've got 2 HDD's 1 Maxtor 40Gb IDE & 1 Maxtor 80Gb IDE
In my former system I had only the 80Gb and there partitioning was as followed:
- 5Gb for OS (2.1), also being the active (former system) partition of this HDD
- 15Gb for program files & program files data (2.2)
- 20Gb for Miscellaneous Data (2.3)
- 40Gb for Media files (2.4)

After convertion:
the 40 Gb HDD went into 2x 20Gb, 1 for OS (1.1) & 1 for program files and program files data (1.2).
After cleaning I had managed to get the 5Gig partition (2.1) empty which I wanted to join with the 15Gig (2.2).
Leaving me with a simple, well looking, structure.

I was so damn stupid to, after formatting this partition, DELETE it.
Yes, I know, you get a warning message, and it was the moment I confirmed I felled the itch something was going to be wrong.
A split second later I saw 2.3 & 2.4 coming free as "available space".
These disks where practically 70% occupied and contain all my work and info of the last years.
Backup, didn't make it yet, had it pipelined after sorting everything out and having all the junk removed.

A:Accidently deleted 1 partition, lost 3! Urgent help wanted!

Sounds to me like you deleted the extended partition instead of one logical partition inside it. Yes, I have used testdisk successfully, but if you feel uncomfortable with it, feel free to try Active Partition Recovery or whatever. However, APR's demo won't fix anything as it won't write to disk.

installing a new hard drive, i wanted to wipe my old drive clean and deleted my external
hard drive. I assume all that was deleted was the boot. I have already given it a letter so the system sees the hard drive but nothing else. PC inspector is running in the background trying to find the lost files, but i was wondering if theres anything else i can do.

A:Solved: Deleted external hard drive accidently

Might depend on how you deleted it. What type of wipe was it?
Probably the only thing you can try at this time is recovery programs but some are a little better at recovery depending on how the files were deleted or lost, but if the files were deleted in any sort of secure manner they may be gone for good.

GetDataBack ( would be another good one to try, and only need to pay for it if it can recover the data.

Earlier today I accidently deleted the Webdings Font File from Windows\Fonts. I tried the SFC /SCANNOW but it did not restore the font file. I downloaded webdin32.exe but it did not install Webdings either.

I need help, because I am going crazy about this...

So what happened was, I downloaded driver sweeper so I can completely uninstall my video card drivers. But I accidently uninstalled my nvidia chipset drivers also, now I cannot even boot in safe mode. I am on a P5N-E SLI 650i mobo. Even booting my vista CD does not work. It just freezes with my mouse cursor. I am on my other computer, any help would be appreciated, thanks.
