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.)

i cant get rid of the files in C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5....NOTHING ive tried has worked....any information on how i can get rid of them would be GREAT!!

Hi Welcome to TSG!!

If you log on as administrator you should be able to delete everything in the C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 folder.

If you sign in as "owner" you should be able to remove everything except index.dat if you close all of your browser windows.

I have a laptop running Windows 7 and I'm unable to access my local network, despite every indication that my device is finding the signal, which is designated as excellent. After attempting to connect, I am eventually told that the connection attempt was unsuccessful, but at the same time my computer indicates that I do, in fact, have "limited access." Perplexing me further, my network is also being denoted as an "unidentified network."

Any feedback would be appreciated.

A few months ago I had my computer reformatted and when it came back I noticed I suddenly had much less memory on my C drive. Recently I discovered this is because there is another local disk, D, with ten times the memory as C. I'm pretty sure it wasn't like this before the reformatting, and I was wondering if there was any way to combine them into a single drive. If not, if i copy files into my D drive can i delete them from my C drive? I have already successfully installed programs such as Kazaa and AIM into my D drive but I am unsure as to whether i can move things such as my Program Files folder. Please let me know if you have any suggestions because I am clueless!

I have recently moved to a wireless broadband connection. The connection is slower than my cable internet in my previous residence. So, I'm noticing some things while I work. One thing is that every time I access my local hard drive, there is network traffic and I have to wait for the network. This is while I'm connected to a VPN. The folders I'm accessing are not synchronized off-line files, either. I do have one mapped network drive.

Anyone know what would cause Windows XP to instigate network traffic when accessing a local drive and how to limit it?


A:Network traffic while accessing local drive

This is actually a situation I ran across some time back. Every local access was trying to touch a network drive, and when that drive wasn't available, it got ugly! In my case, it was a errant path in the registry that was being searched every time I opened a file locally.

My brother has a 2tb hard drive in his computer and he barely uses any of the space in it. So I shared a folder from his computer, and then mapped that folder to mine. I use to this for storage purposes. I was wondering if there was a way from preventing my brother from being able to open this folder if he were to find it on his computer. I'm running win 8 and he's running win 7.

A:Wireless drops out when accessing local files on the network

my initaill reaction was to see if there are firmware updates avaible for the modem/router/ and a driver update for the pc network adapter
BUT when you said
When the laptop is close to the wireless router (i.e 5 bars instead of the normal 3), the problem doesn't seem to occur. Click to expand...

wasnt so sure - BUT it would be worth looking at the firmware and see what updates are available
If we could have makes and exact models of all devices - we should be able to post the information here

This only ever happens on wireless - the ethernet connected PC still works fine on the internet when the "drop out" occurs
correct ?

Lets try a few things -
When its working normally - make a note of all the status light on the router and modem
then when it "drops out" check those light and post any difference here

again when its working correclty lets see an ipconfig /all and various ping tests and post results here- see below
Now when it drops out repeat all the tests and save to something like notepad and when you have internet access post back here - make sure we know which is which

Also lets see what the wireless landscape looks like - post and image of the xirrus wireless tool - see details below
{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

I have 2 computers in different offices both with broadband. A program on computer a needs to access a datafile in realtime(accounting data). How can I set this up to be fast so it doesn't act like it accessing data remotely?

I have tried Ibackupdrive( a virtual internet drive) and Hamachi but both seem too slow, 2-5 seconds latency. Using Gotomypc or Logmein, I can access the data in less than a second.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I am having trouble accessing the router settings of my linksys router. I want to update the firmware. I entered the default gateway that I found using the ipconfig command. It will not work though. I keeps displaying a 404 error. Could it be that I am using the guest network? Any suggestions?

A:Accessing Router Settings?

whats the exact model of the router ?
also post back here an ipconfig /all and an xirrus screen shot
and tell us what network you connect to and also the IP used

to access the settings of a router and make changes - certainly for firmware - make sure you are connected to the router with a cable and that the PC you use if a laptop is also plugged into the mains - any powerfail during the process will damage the router and may not be recovered

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.
Direct link to the program is here

{If the above link does not work heres another link,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to have NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

It`s always worth running anti virus scan to start with if you get something like that happening but you should be able to get to page file (or virtual memory) faily easily using the Win key + Pause-Break, then Advanced / Performace / Advanced.

I know there are various options of what to set the page file at but I`ve never had a problem setting it to `System Managed`.

Hello everyone,
I have a newer Macbook 2GHz with theMac OS X Version 10.4.11. I'm living in Japan and I purchased an xbox 360 with the wireless lan adapter. I have an the Japanese ADSLModemMS5 produced by NTT. I also have the mac wireless router which leaves me with no extra ethernet ports.

My real problem is that I can't get the XBox360 to be functional online. It says it connects but then the tests stop at the IP portion. The solutions microsoft offers are: mainly just changing your settings to DHCP enabled. I can't find an easy way to change that through my network settings.

On the other hand, my Nintendo Wii works wirelessly with the same modem and router, so I think DHCP should already be enabled as it usually is. Can anybody help me get this thing online?

A:Accessing my DHCP settings wirelessly through the internet?

Well, I'm pretty sure that DHCP should be enabled unless you've specifically turned it off on the router. If you want a wired connection, just get a cheap Ethernet switch to expand the number of wired ports. If you have a computer connected to the router, just check and see if it has the DHCP client enabled. If so, obviously the DHCP server on the router is working.

I have a Dell Precision Tower 5810 running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
I created Rescue Media for the Macrium Reflect Free Imaging Software on a USB Flash Drive.
I can boot to that USB Flash Drive IF I can first boot into Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
But, the chances are that when I will need that Rescue Media, I probably will not be able to boot into Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit.
I have tried to directly access the UEFI by pressing the F2 key at the Dell Logo after powering on the System.  I also tried F12.  Neither has worked.
Is there something different that needs to be done on a Dell Precision Tower 5810 running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit to directly access the UEFI & change the boot sequence when I cannot boot into Windows?

When I was defragmenting my hard drive, I noticed that the folder: {C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp} had a lot of copies of my old files. Some of these files I recognized and were old and huge files so I deleted them.

There still are several small files and folders in this temp directory. I don't know how important they are or if windows xp automatically deletes them. Most of the files appear to be setup files and most of the folders have nothing in them. So my question is:

I'm trying to manage my bandwidth allowance from my (mobile wireless broadband) ISP.

I want to use Adobe Flash Player but need to guard against unwanted bandwidth use through peer-assisted-networking.

I note the following on the Flash Player Help page: 'Beginning with Flash Player 10.3, the "Local Settings Manager" supersedes th(e) Online Settings Manager for managing global settings on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. "The Local Settings Manager" can be accessed in the Control Panel on Windows ...'

I can't find anything called a "Local Settings Manager" by searching Win 7/Control panel.

Anyone know the Win 7 title for this (obviously generic) term used on the Adobe page?



A:A Win 7 'Local Settings Manager'

Hello ausgumbie.

I believe the Flash Player (32 or 64 bit depending on your Flash installation) entry (in your Windows Control Panel) is what they're referring to by "Local Settings Manager"; the context being that the settings are accessible from your computer locally now holds precedence over the ones they had you set on their online website sometime ago on the older versions of Flash.

Hi tech guys, today I experienced a lockup during Windows startup. I had some strange errors in the past days so it was a little expected. Kind of a big problem but nothing a Windows reinstallation can't fix.

Last time such a thing happened, it simply formatted my whole HDD, losing all my documents and programs. This time, I tried to only reinstall my windows folder using a boot from cd to keep my files. All worked as expected besides that I lost all my sessions. Since all my files are in a protected folder that can only be viewed a session that doesn't exist anymore I'm screwed.

How do I hack these protections and get my stuff back?

When I rightclick it and select Properties it says 36GB and when i open it and select all the files (including the hidden ones) the total amounts to just 25 MB (megabytes not gigabytes). So where are those 36 GB? How do I delete them off my pc..

Can my Local Settings folder in the Documents & Settings folder be unhidden and made to stay that way? I un-hide it, it allows me to uncheck the Hidden box (making it visible), and "apply to all of the files and subfolders." But then it always re-hides itself, the next time I go into Docs & Settings, it's Hidden again - so just unchecking Hidden isn't doing the job. Is it a protected system folder? If so, I'd only want this single one visible. Can I do this?

I purchased a new Dell 1764 Win 7 Professional about 2-weeks ago and have been learning how to use Win 7 - I consider myself an old XP guy!

I was in the windows explorer to see who was listed inder the Users directory where I found a directory with my name on it. I double clicked and noted the contents of the directory was the same as in XP. I clicked on the Local Settings directory (I temporarily turned off the "hide protected operating system files" option to see if contents was the same) and got a message that access was denied. I was told by a tech that this was normal in Win 7 in order to stop people from changing options, etc. which could cause problems.

My question is this - was the tech correct by saying it was locked for protection? If the answer is yes, then who can access the directory? (I have system administrator rights.

Hello Pierre,

Yes, he was correct. The faded shortcut protected OS folders are actually only "junction points" to the actual folder instead, and are not real folders. They are used for backwards compatibility for older XP type applications that still reference them by default instead of the newer default locations in Vista and Windows 7 now. They redirect the older application to the new Vista and Windows 7 locations instead.

Hello all.

This is place looks like the best resource I could find.

I have a Windows Vista machine set up at work. I have setup a local policy for non-administrators. This may be a stupid question, but is there a way I can save the current settings as a .inf or some other kind of template? Or do I have to create the settings as a template first and then apply it?

I have tried using the Security Templates snap-in and I can easily create a template and go through everything to make sure it has the settings I want, but I really don't want to go through that trouble and I would much rather just save the current settings as a template if possible.

Thanks for any help, I realize I might kick myself when I find out how easy this really is.

They are obvoiusly invisible to Win Explorer and also to CCleaner yet plainly obvious to MBAV which does not offer to delete them however.

To easily clean theses files you can use 'ccleaner';1

The two ways I have found are, do a search open properties and uncheck hidden file box or type Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings into the address bar. I know the stock answer is this folder is hidden for a purpose and should not be messed with. In my mind that is a typical Bill Gates crap answer. I like to selectively check and delete history files and review Temp files. There has to be a registry key I'm not finding that I can add a 1 to that will unhide this folder on boot up.

I have notice around 9 files in my Document and Settings - Local Settings - Temp folder, that are sized at: 144kb, 800kb, 2.6kb; that I cannot delete without the prompt "Cannot delete file being used by another person or computer.

I cannot delete these files in Safe mode either.

Are these files viruses or are they files of legit programs on my computer.
Also, If I don't delete them at some time or other they will start to increase in size and slow down my computer.

Please help.

A:Temp files in Local Settings folder

I, paranoid soul that I am, would be very concerned about this...

in my case it would be very easy to delete this stuff as I have a dual boot system and can remotely access such things (one of the reasons I have a dual boot system)...

download tcpview here and run it while not actively using the internet (e.g. no browser, no filesharing apps, etc)...if you notice any established connections you indeed have a problem...

you should also perhaps run HiJack this and see if anything is odd...

Hi all,

I've been there so many times...

Start>My Computer>C drive(or wherever Windows in installed)>Documents & Settings>User Name>Local Settings.

Then I open a couple of folders and delete all those temp files etc.

BUT....after a clean install and a couple of repairs later I note that the Local Settings folder that should reside within each users folder in Docs & Settings, isn't there?

So where are they???

Is it normal that this file is absent???

Any thoughts on this???

Thankyou to all in advance.....

I hate to ask such a basic question here but I couldn't find an answer in your tutorials. I was running CCleaner and it said I had 467MB of files to be removed but when I ran it it only removed about 12MB. I looked at the file details and most of them are in documents and settings\administrator\local settings\temp. CCleaner just calls them system-temporary files until I look at details. Since these are hidden files is CCleaner not deleting them because it is unsafe to do so or does it have a problem? Can I safely delete another way or do they even need to be deleted? A lot of the files are Internet Explorer files. I run CCleaner a lot but don't ever remember it deleting such a small fraction of the files it says need to be. thanks as usual

A:deleting local settings\temp files, Ccleaner

Dave, if you have administrator rights, don't have multiple accounts on the computer, and have unchecked the." wait 24 hours to delete", under the options/ advanced tab, I would go to the Ccleaner forum. If you click on the the "Pear" in the upper right corner of the program It should take you to the main site and can look for the forum their.
Its probably one of the "ifs"' but the Ccleaner forum would be a better resource if I am wrong.  I apologize for not going into alot of detail, but I am new here and I am not sure how much I can help. I hope this gets you in the right direction if not fixes the problem.
Good Luck.

I just upgraded all my computers to Windows 10.

My 15 year old is clever enough to bypass the (new) Family settings controlled Microsoft Account I just set up for him by converting the account to a local account. This seems to let him play as long as he wants, without time restrictions. I didn't get an email about this, or any other notification. This is the second time he has done it.

Why is it so easy to completely bypass all the family safety settings it took me hours(!) to finally get set up?

Also the Family Recent Activity shown on my Microsoft Account web site doesn't seem to update itself. It is at least two or three days behind, perhaps more. How often does Recent Activity update? Is it supposed to be near instantaneous?

A:Bypass Family Settings by conversion to Local Account

What you describe should be impossible. To test this I just now created a child account on my PC and signing in to it tried to change it to either an admin account or a local account. Could not do that.

The only way your son can change his account to a local account and "remove" it from Family, or create a new account is to have access to an admin account on that same PC (your account), or alternatively access to your admin MS account's Family settings online. For that he needs both your MS account username and password. It means that if you protect your own personal admin account (MS account) with a strong password and especially the Two-Step Verification, he has no way to access that account and he should not be able / is not able to change your Family settings or his account status.

A:Owner/Local Settings/Temp Folder - Unknown File

Some files are locked by the operating system or locked by running programs during use for protection, so scanners cannot access them. Files that are located in password-protected archives may also be locked or denied access. When the scanner finds such a file, it makes a note and then just skips to the next one. That explains why it shows as "skipped" or "Access Denied" in some anti-virus or anti-malware log scan reports. Similarly, when attempting to delete such a file manually, you may receive a message indicating it is in use or a warning that it is a protected. For more information about this, please refer to How to Delete/Rename a Stubborn File. Several utilities are suggested for dealing with stubborn files to include Unlocker.Please download Unlocker and save to your desktop.Choose the default installation folder C:\Programs Files\Unlocker, click "Next" then click "Install" and reboot when finished.Navigate to the file or folder you want to delete.Right-click on it and select "Unlocker" from the menu.If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will open.Click to highlight the file path and choose "Unlock all". (make sure "no action" is chosen in the program)After you unlock it, right-click on the file and choose delete.Note: When you are unsure about a suspicious or unknown file, you can rename it by adding .vir after the file's extension (i.e. badfile.dll.vir). If you receive an alert from Windows about renaming, just ignore it. I prefer renaming instead of deleting as deletion leaves you with no option to restore if the file is later found to be legitimate. Taking no action exposes you to risk if the file is not legitimate.
