2 questions regarding memory stick and excel file?

1.I put memory stick in pc and work on some files. Now, when I want to save some typing I did on a file in a folder on the memory stick and go to save, pc box says" Cannot open the ..... 3 reasons. One reason is a file with that name is already open." I have to close file without saving revision.

2. I exit computer and then later turn on and click on drive with memory stick plugged in and it cannot access the files I previously saw when I double clicked on K-file. Blank screen where previously the screen showed the files I was typing in.


Answer

Sounds like a virus to me

Make sure you have a good antivirus

Besides that
The best way to edit files from USB drive, is to copy it to a fixed drive

Sometimes Windows disconnect the USB drive and that will delete the connection between the application and the file opened

The 'folder options' are gone from tools menu! any help to return this?

not only 'folder options' were missing but about 4 other choices under tools menu are missing after my laptop was infected by a virus.. i succesfully removed all viruses but the missing options are still gone.. i tried opening it from control panel but it was missing there too.. i tried 'view>costumize then add the folder options.. the icon appeared but nothing happens when i click it.. i cant open my hidden files anymore!!


Answer

I sow this happened several times to computers with viruses, I think you need to reinstall windows over the old one.

About hidden files, you still can open it using the program you created it with. just type the name in the dialog and you go.

Hidden folders still can be viewed if you type in the name to the right of the address bar after "\"

I can get emails but i can't move them or send never happen before?


Answer

Hmmmm
I think you have virus (I am not quite sure), but let us try the following first.
1- Clear history and cookies
2- Delete temporary internet files
Both 1 and 2 are in Internet options from Control panel
3- Restart computer and try again
4- Mark me as best answer if the problem goes with the wind
5- otherwize I suggest install and run a good anti virus.

Why wont my Limewire open?

Ok Limewire was working fine until i tried to download counterstrike. After that i gave up becuase i couldnt get it to work. When i tried to open BF2 nothing happened except it froze loading the black screen. It kept doing this counteuiously. I performed a system restore and everything was going fine.. except limewire kept popping up every 10 seconds and my ctrl alt delete wouldnt work. I restored again and got everything working fine. Later when I tried to start Limewire it wouldnt come up and all i got was the little hourglass for a split second like it was going to load it but it cant. I really need my music!!!! I have tried uninstalling and installing but that didnt work. BTW I did a spybot scan and found viruses so I killed them. I also tried undoing those viruses to see if it would work then, but it still didnt so i killed them again. PLZ HELP!!!!


Answer

I don't think you can solve this problem without installing antivirus software, And As it mentioned get ready to format and reinstall Windows because will see a brand new creative problem every day.
BUT you still can get your music by copying the files in C:\Program files\Limewire this is the place where it usually saved your music, Unlless you change it.

Epson stylus cx4600 installation?

ok we had some probs with our comp and a virus wiped us out, i have lost the installation cd for my printer, is there a site i can go to, to download a driver for this specific printer/scanner? well actually the printer works just the scanner doesnt? i need a site to go to for the scanner... thanks!


Answer

Did you tried Epson.com, don't tell me you didn't.
Ok If you already did and searched for this printer/scanner in the database. I think you still can search for it on one of the drivers' sites (like Driverguide.com), Actually this is one of the biggest I have seen in Drivers database.

Good Luck
