Preferred Solution: ZAJQD Is Compressed

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: ZAJQD Is Compressed

If you have a Windows 7 repair disc or a Window 7 disc, insert it and boot to it. Select repair my computer and choose the Startup Repair module. This should fix it. Run it several times if you have to until fixed. If not fixed within 5 passes come back for more help.

After uninstalling WinAce i am no longer (As i was before WinAce) able to right click and go New > Compressed Zip or Send to > Compressed Zip.

First problem. I need to know the shortcut target for doing this. It might not be a full target as it is part of windows explore like the shortcut for Search is "& Search"

Second Problem. I can add stuff to Send To easily. But adding stuff to New is going to be difficult.

If you can help me with any part of the problem it would be great

Hello all,
  Duh moment - I right-clicked on my C-drive properties, and selected 'compress drive to save space', and it actually did it!  Yes, even the Boot Manager.  Now I try to boot up, and only get a DOS prompt that says 'BOOTMGR is compressed - Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart'.  I can't boot to my W7 disk.  Not sure what to do now - any ideas, my genious friends?
Thank you in advance,

To fix this issue, you need to boot from a Windows 7 install DVD/USB or a system repair disc. Why you can't boot from the Win 7 disc ?.

The computor shop said he didnt carry the air and used a vacuum cleaner. Why cant I? My vac has suction and blow with various low and high settings.

A:Compressed Air

You can but be aware, you need to know exactly what you are doing and one false move, and your board will be "toast". Forums are filled with dead systems where the owner had just vacuumed the insides and were clueless as to what they did. That is why we suggest a "can of air".

I bought a can of compressed air to clean the keyboard of my laptop. When I used it, the air came out very cold. I'm sure that is not unusual since that's the way air conditioners work. However it made the keyboard very frosty and when it thawed out the keyboard was a little damp. It makes me wonder if the dampness is harming the keyboard.

Should have been just normal dry air. Where was it stored.

Hello, dear members

So, i've got a big problem. Yesterday, I tried to reinstall my windows 7 starter on my Acer Aspyre One AOA 150. I wanted to delete everything from HDD, but after, when I trying to restart, I meet this nice characters: BootMgr is compressed.

I read a lot of informations in this forum, but I can't solved this problem.

I prepared a bootable HDD from my TOSHIBA, and I changed the first boot to the USB HDD ( I don't know why can't I boot from SDD card.. ). When the boot is starting, it took a few seconds, and BootMgr is compressed, press ctrl alt blabla...

Without bootable HDD, the Windows Boot Mgr wrote: The windows boot configuration data file does not contain a valid os entry.

What can I do in this situation?

Hello this might have come up before but I already tried this method:

Insert the installation DVD in your system and start the pc above.
Click Repair your computer.
Then click on Load Driver.
Go to Computer.
Right click on the partition your installation previously compressed> Properties.
Then uncheck "Compress drive to increase space available".
Then close all windows to restart the computer.
It was already unchecked. So now have no idea where to go next. Can anyone help?

BTW i had XP installed on one partition and I installed Win7 on another. The other partition was running Vista before i did a clean Win 7 install over it and then the problem started

A:TFGHT is compressed

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update. If so, reset your CMOS:

Is this a new install failing to start?

Did you delete or format the Vista partition before installing Win7 from booted DVD?

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? How do you plan to activate it?

Try booting the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered repair. If it doesn't start, boot back in to run Startup Repair repeatedly. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

If this fails, use DVD/Repair CD command line to mark Win7 partition active, then run Repairs again: Partition - Mark as Active

Try a partition-specific wipe of Vista partition using free Partition Wizard bootable CD before reinstalling Win7.

i was preeviously using xp2. i wanted to switch to windows7 basic 32bit. when i inserted the windows disk the problem appeared. i even removed the disk and tried reinstalling but the same 'bootmgr compressed' msg is coming...... pliz help

A:bootmgr compressed

Sounds like a message from the XP OS, meaning the disk is not booting in time before BIOS hands it over to the OS.

Is the DVD drive set first to boot in BIOS setup, or are you tapping the Fkey for one-time BIOS Boot Menu at boot to trigger DVD? Does it prompt you to "Press any key to boot disk?"

If not where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Try burning another using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

On Disk Cleanup my pc scans for compress old files, even though it is unchecked and takes a long time to complete. It finds about 50gb worth of old files. Its been doing that for about 6 months which it didn't previously. Is it ok to delete those compressed old files without losing anything I may need or actively using?

If they are system or application files that you do not completely understand you should not delete them. If they are your data files you are in a better position than we are to determine if they are important to you.

These are files you compressed some time in the past, but you now no longer compress old files, right?

I unfortunately had to run a system recovery, NOT the windows xp restore. It was the compaq system recovery program which formats all harddrives and puts the PC back to factory settings. This took about 20 mins, and I restarted the computer as I was directed to. I didn't even get any sign of windows, just a black screen with blinking cursor and a second later this:

NTLDR is compressed.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.

I did that, it restarted and I still got the message. I ran system recovery again, hoping this would correct the error it made, but still the same thing happened. I don't have a windows xp install disc, just that stupid useless barcode that prooves I bought a machine with xp installed. Any ideas?

A:Bootmgr is compressed

BOOTMGR is compressed can be fixed but you need either a Windows 7 install DVD or a System Repair Disc. Since you don't have an install disc, please create a System Repair Disc from a friend's or neighbor's PC.
What you need to do first is to run the "Startup Repair" tool at least three times and check whether it fix the issue automatically. If not, please report and we can try to fix it manually.

I stupidly decided to compress my main HD because it was filling up quickly. I had to leave it going overnight because it was taking forever.The next day when I tried booting up, I get the message
I'm not sure what I did to cause this or how to rectify it. I don't know what XILEY is either and couldn't find anything about it. At the moment the only option I can see is installing a new copy of windows ontop of my already almost full HD, which I'd like to avoid. Unfortunately I don't have a restore point to use or anything like that.
This is w7

A:PC Won't boot after compressed HD

I'm going to assume that you have only one HDD and that is the one you compressed. What program did you use to compress it?
If a reinstall is the solution don't worry about the drive being full. The reinstall process will reformat the drive so that it is clean and then install the OS again.
Keep us posted

A:help RE: compressed drive

What or how did this person compress the drives...If it was done with XP Pro and he reinstalled the OS he could have problems because XP uses a "Key" to compress and encrypt...if he compressed and encyrpted the drives and then he reinstalled the OS ...he is out of luck because he doesn't have the "Key" to decrypt the drives...
If he compressed the drives using another form of sofware..then you should be able to use the same software to access the drives..

If it's a folder that is not empty, check the box for Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files, then click OK.

I've tried to start the recovery console via recovery cd and without using the drive recovery but the system will not let me get to the command prompt to allow me to repair the ntldr file. I've followed the instructions to boot to the recovery console and it does not allow me to do anything but run the recovery program which does not get rid of the problem. Is this the end of the rope or does anyone have further instructions for me to perform. Thanks.

it sounds like you are using a Recovery CD and not a Windows XP CD. If you do not have access to an XP CD then on a working computer, download the ISO image for the Recovery Console burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn boot off of the newly created CD and follow instructions you have before for uncompressing the NTLDR file.

I have this problem with compressed files. I created a .7z file some time ago in my D Drive (2-3 weeks) and it used to open just fine. But 3 days earlier, I had to re-install Windows in my PC due to corrupt windows. Now, my C Drive was completely wiped, but the D Drive was not.

This .7Z file now refuses to open,extract, copied or cut. It puts up an error "Access is denied". It can, however, be deleted or renamed. I've tried using WinRaR, 7Zip and WinZip. I've tried taking ownership of that file, but still it puts up that error. I have Windows XP Service Pack 3. The file has important data, but not that important that I'd buy some paid software for it.

A:Compressed File

Have you tried taking ownership of the folder it's in, rather than the file itself?
Or drag it/copy it into your new Documents folder and try opening it from there?

I"m running win7. Gigabyte motherboard. Two hard disks, one 500 gb and the other which has the OS 2tb. This morning I felt that the system was running slow so I turned off the computer and turned it back on. After showing the "Gigabyte" splash screen and the title of the bios "American Megatrends" I received the following message on the screen
and that is the farthest I got to opening my system as the message comes back at each restart. I used a Hiren startup disk and checked the hard drives and they both checked out ok. I Googled the message but came up with nothing. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

I recently posted a question about compressed
folders, and I searched the archives but I came up with nothing. I followed the directions about how to create a compressed folder from my computer icon and from the desktop but there is'nt any compressed folder to to click on how do I create a compressed folder to open up my zipped files that I have downloaded?? Please help!!!!

A:Compressed Folders

You need WinZip to open zip files. Do you have that program? If so go into Windows Explorer (start--programs--windows explorer) and locate the zip file and right click on it and select "extract to folder" and then click on "i agree" when prompted. Then Winzip will create a subfolder in the folder where you have the zip file stored. Open that subfolder to find the files.

If you don't have Winzip then download the free evaluation version and then do as above after it's installed.

Hey guys I'm having trouble with my HP Pavilion a1510y vista computer. When I turn it on it says "bootmgr is compressed press ATL + Shift + Delete to restart". When I do this it just takes me back to the beginning so instead I put in my Vista CD. When I press Shift+f10 during setup a cmd prompt comes out. At the top it says X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe and when I start the process of typing;
"expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h

During the warmer months I make it a point to keep the dust bunnies at bay, via canned air. Frequently I find that if the can is not help upright, a blast of cold mist is dispensed into the vent, rather than dry air. I do make an attempt to avoid this, but it still does occur on occasion.

Has anybody heard of this causing problems?

I did Google it a bit, but got tired of looking at the wrong things the canned air was being used for (IE musical instruments, etc...)

A:Compressed Air Question

I know what you mean and have had the same thing happen to me when using tins of compressed air.
All I do is make sure that the PC is turned off and hold down the start button for 5 seconds to make sure all power is discharged from motherboard.Then take the sides off and give all the fans etc a good blow out.When I have finished I just let it sit for a while or use an hair-dryer to finish off blowing it out.
Have never had any trouble doing this,although I suppose it is better just using it on keyboards than inside the PC.

Do you have another OS (so other win7 instance or VISTA) on that laptop as well? Or do you have a win7 system repair disk or win7 install dvd?

Only thing you have to do is:

There should be one file with a .rar extension. Open that file with WinRAR and extract the contents. WinRAR will automatically open the .r00, .r01, etc. files. If the RAR file will not open, then WinRAR can be downloaded from RARLab.

Hi jje134,

Welcome to TSG!

Try downloading the following .reg file from: Registry Edits for Windows XP "Tweaks and Tips"

Find in the right-hand column of 85. Restore Compressed Zipped Folders Association
Click on it to download it and Save it to your Desktop

You can look at the contents of the zip.reg file by launching a Notepad.exe window, then Open the zip.reg file by using the File pull-down menu

When the zip.reg file is on your Desktop, double-click it to install its contents in your resgistry.

Does that correct the problem with your folders?

If not, you may have to reboot/restart your computer for it to take effect - sometimes registry changes do not take immediate effect.

Let us know if your problem has been corrected or not by applying this fix.

A:NTLDR is compressed

From what I see, the M140 employs a restore/recovery well as any disks that you may have. Your disk is not necessarily equal to a Microsoft XP install CD, therefore any instructions for solving problems using a MS install CD...may not necessarily work when trying such with something other than the prescribed CD.

Exactly what Microsoft instructions...were you attempting to follow?
