Yes. If you have administrative rights to the computer, you can access other user's files. Windows does not encrypt user data by default. All you need to do is at the lock screen, hit Switch User and then log in with an account that has administrative privileges. Or if the computer is a member of a domain, you can access them over the network by going to ...

Yes, you can. But only if the OS is installed on one machine. If its OEM license you should use it only on the machine you buy with this license As far as I know - no. You have keys for XP and 8. So you should use XP on one machine and 8 on other two

If the Windows XP is using encryption and you force it to delete the password and allow you access to the operating system, then XP will allow access to the operating system but it will deny access to all of the users individual files which will stay encrypted and will probably not be easily recovered. However if you use a different type of program which ...

As @Ramhound notes, you must take ownership of the files and folders on the problem drive. Once you connect it to a functioning computer with your USB-SATA device, examine the file structure and attempt to open the folders you need (likely Users\User Name) and you will be prompted to take ownership of the files/folders. This could take a few minutes or ...

I'm just adding an answer to compliment Mario's answer and all the various comments. In all Intel's documentation an OS requirement is never mentioned in relation to enabling multi-channel memory. Here's an example. In the above example, the benchmarks Intel ran were on a Windows XP 32-bit configuration. Additionally, there are certain editions of 32-bit ...

I was able to rewrite the script only using WMIC to query the information for the appropriate network interfaces. The script works by querying WMI for network adapters whose ipenabled status is set to true. This weeds out all of the interfaces that are not actual ethernet adapters. We then store the first line of the output (lowest index number for an ...

First of all do a backup of your image disk: it's always wise and safe. Then you can use VBoxManage modifyhd with this syntax VBoxManage modifyhd <absolute path to file> --resize <size in MB> In your case I think the commandline should be VBoxManage modifyhd <absolute path with the name and extension> --resize 10240 Reference : The ...

Yes, your assumptions are correct. Windows XP 32bit will only be able to access 4GB (which is half your total), but the mainboard won't care about this limitation (assuming it supports up to 8GB or more). The abstraction on how the memory is addressed or used happens (as far as I know) on the hardware level. As such it won't matter that Windows XP 32bit ...

I'm still using floppy disks (I'm very nostalgic to these days of the 90's) and I recommend DiskWRITE for those who use Windows. Alternatively, if you're using Linux,nothing is like using dd: dd if=imagename.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 conv=sync;sync (I took this from the DEBIAN documentation)

What you see: That is not an XP balloon tooltip, this is: See the difference? That thing in your screenshot is a custom tooltip created by your company's software, and no doubt the developers didn't bother to heed the global registry setting you set because they rolled their own solution instead of using the proper APIs. Since it's your own company's ...

After many many hours/days of troubleshooting, here is my precise problem + answer. After cloning my Win7 HDD to my SSD, it just would not boot directly. I thought it had something with the cloning process, or the SSD not having a MBR, etc. I experimented endlessly with BCD, fixmbr, bootsec, etc. None of this would allow the SSD to boot directly. My ...

This question is relatively old at the time of this answer. Having had the same issue; the problem was conflicting IPs on the network. Once the IP problem was resolved (in this case the was a device with a static IP address in the same range as those being dished out by the DHCP) - the problem went away and the sessions were very stable.

As far the question on System Drive goes: boot drive or partition in your case (as is common) DOES NOT have to be on the "system (C:) Drive" so long as the BCD (Boot Code ?Directory?) has the system drive in its "address book" per-say. There are several ways to reset this to be on the "System Drive" --now the win 7 install, the safest is to boot a ...

While the accepted answer here will work, there is a much more direct way to do this. In Chrome, open settings and expand the advanced section. Click the "content settings" button, then "all cookies and site data". In the window that opens, search for mega. Click the result and you should see a "file system" button. Click that and it should show ...

Just a guess: you are not getting the MBR as I think you figured out already. The whole disk is too big. so.... 1) grab a USB drive with enough space get a working disk image; convert to qcow2; shrink it. 2) use gparted or parted to shrink the original. e2fsck and tune2fs *may* be helpful, also resize2fs.

Ok guys, I figured it out. If you want to get cmd to open in another location in XP, use cd and then the path. e.g. if it's C:\Documents and Settings\user> _ and it is waiting for you to write something, then you can type cd (name of directory). For example, cd C:\new folder.

Another useful tool for this purpose is Multiscreen Blank. You will still need to set up a system-wide shortcut with an additional tool, but the screen blanking settings are nicely adjustable.

if you can 'mount' your image file to a windows machine (XP preferrably), you can use Microsoft tools against it to see what the problem might be. the partition has to be 'active', it has to be an MBR (not GPT) formatted disk, and it has to have the correct boot sector. tools like diskpart and bootsect /nt52 /mbr have been useful for me in the past. I'm ...

Suspecting that in this case AVG was the culprit (the last four system files loaded in safe mode were for AVG) I went to the AVG site for advice. They recommended making a boot CD or USB stick. Very helpful advice when you only have one computer! However, they were simply using that to get a command prompt up so I used Windows Recovery Console instead. AVG ...

The main problem preventing users from updating drivers from IDE to AHCI has been blue screens that could only be cured by undoing the BIOS change. The cause of the problem is the driver installed when Win was setup. Since IDE was enabled at install only the IDE storage driver was configured and active.
