  • files keep moving and drivers keep dye on me.

  • So what exactly am i supposed to do if i have windows xp home edition? All of my kids baby pictures are now inaccessible because of an xp reinstall?

  • Did this on a XP Pro box, but still do not have complete access to files from a Vista box even after setting everyone to full control. Obviously full control doesn't mean full control. Why can't there be a little program that I can run on the vista box that says "as the current user, here's what you can do to this file/folder/etc and here's what you cannot do." I'm working with the vendor of the s/w and their environment works just fine. Typical...

  • love it .thankyou very much for this wonderfull time saver

  • Did a complete restore and now cannot access many files, including some VALUABLE pictures.  This and other procedures recommended thru HP HELP have not solved the problem as of now...  I have hope...  Anyone else having the problem or cure??

  • If I cant disable Simple file sharing on Windows xp home edition, then can anyone tell me how to get rid of this "access denied" error!

    Its frustrating I cant access my files.

  •    The problem I am having is a bit complex, I don`t think Disable Simple File Sharing will fix it. This is the message I am receiving 'sharing violation occurred while accessing C:\DOCUME~1\A\LOCALS~1\temp\btidtemp140.ini.'. Any help will be appreciated.

  • I have tried every of your instructions, and nothing works to share the folder where Windows LiveCare is on an external drive.

    I am running XP Home, though this HP computer was supposed to be XP professional. In my operating system (whether Pro of Home, when I go to Control Panel, there is no option beginning"Performance... I hope that this gives you some clue as to which version of XP I have. I have Service Pack 3 on the hard drive.

    Thank you,

  • Fix it did not work. It says Fix it does not apply to your system. How do I go about? please post.

  • I am trying to get access to My Documents.  I know I have gotten into the Advanced settings, which I should not have because of lack of knowledge.  Can anyone help me open My Documents?  Thanks in advance.
