sleske's answer is almost exactly right, but it doesn't always work. If your home directory is on a network share setup as a mapped drive, run the following regardless of the drive of the current directory: cd /D %homedrive%%homepath% The /D switch is necessary to allow cd to change drives.

Normally just holding "0" when you boot should bring up the factory reset options for vista on a Toshiba. If your talking resetting the bios though holding down F2 should bring up bios menu and you can reset from there. Or you can open up your laptop and remove the CMOS battery.

I think a better alternative to Deep Freeze would be Rollback RX, just because of the extra features it has compared to Deep Freeze. You can use a snapshot on Rollback RX as a sandbox as well. I like Deep Freeze but I honestly think it is a little too pricy for what it does.

As mentioned above- there are quite many ways to accomplish this. Some involve some nitty gritty "hackish" methods as well. I implemented a similar project in one our test labs. I did use DeepFreeze in the initial stage. Did the job well but there were some conflicts when it came to actually updating the system and making some changes persistent. Then ...

RepeaterCreeper(RC) had a system with Microsoft Vista OS. By installing Debian linux, the entire HDD had only two linux partitions (\ and swap) and no trace of Windows installation. (I confirmed this by using fdisk -l command in linux). HDD was 160GB. RC has a Win 7 DVD to install MS Win 7. There was an issue with the installation of Win 7. There was this ...

You could mess around with repartitioning, installing windows, fixing bootloader etc, but since you still have a pretty clean install... I would start over again. First install your Windows. Make sure you only create a sized partition that you want to assign to Windows and leave the other space unformatted. Continue with the installation and then start your ...

NotePad++ creates a backup file you might find at: %AppData%/Notepad++/backup This trick saved me so much time and work! I hope this works for you too!

I would like to chime in at the fact this could potentially be caused due to a malicious script, or the remenants of one. I was browsing the net, a pop-up window came and instant notification of java update popped up (looked phoney), clicked no to allow script/update/whatever, continued browsing and then got the Interpol Virus. Trojan.Siredef.c and ...

I'm sure you mean cmd.exe (the NT command prompt) rather than DOS. DOS fell out of use after Win9X, and would need a tweak to support filenames > 8 characters. I usually image as it's quicker, or clone, and haven't done a file copy in a while, but you could attach both hard drives to usb, and do robocopy e:\ f:\ /e Perhaps you could even do it from ...

boot from the Windows Vista DVD or Windows Recovery Environment (F8), open the command prompt and run this: sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=c:\windows Replace C: with the drive letter where you installed Windows. Is sfc able to restore the infected file?

The proper way of building images these days involves using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit or MDT for short. The latest version MDT 2013 came out last fall and is simply second to none. MDT builds, captures and deploys images for you. If you've built your images in a VM, MDT can also install the drivers for you in a Make \ Model Hirearchy that will allow ...

You can fix BCD with a simple command from recovery/installation DVD/USB. bcdedit /store c:\boot\bcd /set {GUID} device partition=d: c: is where boot files are (active partition) d: is where your Windows is installed c: and d: could be the same partition, exact mapping you can get using "diskpart.exe" (list volumes) {GUID} is the loader id to obtain ...

I did that before with windows 7 and tried this - reinstalling windows 7 and when given the choice to 'upgrade' or 'install fresh' i told it to do it as an upgrade. It found the right partition and solved the problem.

See this: Automatically receiving files. No. There are no settings available to automatically accept receiving file transfer. In any case, this would have been a huge security risk in the case someone would try to send you a malicious fail containing e.g. a virus. It seems to be disabled.

It is as simple as that: All boot files MUST be on active partition first disk. ntldr, boot.ini, ntdetect.com, bootmgr, \boot folder with BCD. In boot.ini you specify old NT5 systems. In BCD you specify all systems. You can use ARCPaths utility for exact ARC Paths for all drives. Try Visual BCD Editor - it can create all loaders on one go. (backup BCD ...

The article VS 2010 Team Explorer crashes with WebEx Connect has some advice that may apply here.

Another was : We had the same problem for a while. This is due to the ...

To help others, not all wireless adapters can host a connection. From answers.microsoft.com they suggest running: netsh wlan show drivers Look for "Hosted network supported". If you see no, you're out of luck

When using Linux (ahhhh! ;) you could swap a harddisk like that, if the processor type is compatible. With Windows you could try, but I think it won't work unless the laptop is of the same type. Much easier copy the Mozilla profile and zip it as a backup shutdown firefox move your new profile to the desktop move the old profile into the Profiles folder ...

http://www.indirectsound.com/ appears to do some of what you've asked for. IndirectSound emulates audio hardware acceleration on modern Windows operating systems. This enables older games to have 3D positional audio (i.e. surround sound played out of rear and side speakers) like they were intended to when they were originally released. ...

I have seen this on 2 different models of laptop. (A Sony Vaio around 2005 and a Toshiba Sattelite around 2008). I have also observed white, red and blue flashes on various other laptops and desktops. As far as I know this is just the monitor displaying whatever random content the video-card has in video-memory before the card is properly re-initialized when ...
