  1.   Thanks but I know about that setting and page. I was wondering about the programs on the D drive. Will win WIPE OUT BOTH DRIVES TO REINSTALL WIN 10. Or will they only wipe the C drive . I would like to start clean and do not want any info on the D drive that could be a problem later on after a clean win 10 install.


  2.  Have been having to many problems with desk top. I have win 10 installed on c drive (250ssd) and most programs installed on a d drive (2 terr). Should I wipe the D drive first and then have win 10 reinstall on the c drive. I want a clean install. I used Belarc Advisor to copy product keys (hope fully).


  3. I have d/l DBAN to USB and when i click on it a number of files come up and it will not install to USB. I tried to d/l to my h/d and then install to USB I get a number of files with ext of TXT,CAT,CFG,BIN,BZI. I have clicked on all of them and nothing happens. I am missing something.


  4. They are two old computers that My wife was given to use over time. One is so old that if will not run win 10(has not been used in a few years but she has to turn in). The other runs win 10 and crashes all the time or runs so SLOW . Wife used own computer a lot of times. Wife wants to gt any personnel info off . I was going to just reformat but would like to erase every ting for her peace of mind.


  5. I am running win 10. I have a program called PAPER PERT 14. For some reason to get it running I had to create another logon for my computer. Reinstalling it did not get the program running. The last word from  tech support was create a new log on. Now by doing that all my programs are not visible.  Meaning I would have to create all new short cuts. The new log on was created as a ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT. Is there a way to move all short cuts from one log on to another log on account. I use paper port 14 as my file cabinet and would like to continue to use it.


  6. I have made a few complete backups of desktop. Desktop is about 7 years old. I plan to try and use backups. If this does not workout for some reason,I will try to reformat.  I would like to install new  solid state H/D(have SSHD 250GIG plus 2 TB H/D and not sure if H/D are getting old). How would I reinstall win 10. I did win 10 upgrade and not sure how to do the reformat and reinstall?


  7. I had to use a restore point to get computer back to the point that certain programs were working. Now I can not find any old restore points. After the last restore creation I did not crate a new restore point. So how do I find old points that the restore program does not show or allow you to do a older restore pint.


  8.   I have a laptop and desktop. In the laptop I created a home group and have the password from the laptop. I went to the desktop top and it said it sees a home group and asked if I would like to join. I put in the laptop password but after a few minutes I am told the desk top cannot see home group. How to fix? What is the difference between work group and home group plus which is easier to use.?


  9. My desk top is win 8.1 and the laptop is win 10.I finally got the laptop to see the files on the desktop that I wanted.But the desktop can not access the laptop.I said share on the laptop and share on the desktop.I used the password from desktop and used it so I am on the same group in the laptop. In network and sharing center/media streaming options, I see the laptop. When I try to click on the network, I see the laptop but the desk top will not access.It says --box pops up-and says win cannot access \\laptop,check spelling of the name.


  10. Thanks for the reply.I was going to try the link that you sent but I did not like the warning about back up all data on the disk.The problem is I could not get to it to copy.Time passes and last backup was1 year ago.

    I was able to get to the command prompt (with nortons ghost) but did not remember my dos commands. After reading the old dos book,I was able to move around a little.I finally got down to windows/pss dir.Typed in boot.ini backup and guess what happen.The boot.ini backup came up in notepad,was I really gland,was not sure what or how I was going to change it in dos.I saved as boot.ini backup2 and then changed it to boot.ini and finally saved it to the c drive. The computer is up and running .I still believe there is some thing wrong so after a complete backup,I will restore to about a year ago.
