Is Acronis Startup Recovery compatible with Vista Startup Repair? by Tim Walters[_2_]
My laptop is an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC and my OS is Vista Home Premium Version 6.0 Build 6000. I haven't been able to install SP1. I've done a mirror image of Drive C on an external HD by Acronis. Acronis offers the option of accessing Startup Recovery (through F11) if the OS fails to boot. Is there any danger of a conflict between this and Vista's own startup repair system? Second...

How to view Vista AppData folder in Windows Explorer? by Mike M
1. I noticed that not all my temporary files were being deleted when I used TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS/Browsing History/Delete (all). Why is this so? 2. However, when I tried to find them, in a subfolder of AppData, I couldn't find the AppData folder, even though I checked the box to show hidden folders. Why is this so? 3. Also, why is Vista designed to frustrate us like this?

Using "Select multiple files or folders" by John[_22_]
I want to select a long string of files (for deletion). Vista Help says: --To select a consecutive group of file or folders, click the first item, hold down the SHIFT key, and then click the last item. --To select a consecutive group of files or folders without using the keyboard, drag the mouse pointer to create a selection around the outside of all the items you want to include.

Partitioning caused a rights problem by darkgandhi05
I tried out Windows 7 on a new partition on my hard drive and I only gave it about 30gb. Since I liked it better than Vista I ended up using it more than I thought...and i ran out of space. So I tried to expand the partition and that didn't work properly and Windows 7 won't boot up anymore. That's fine, I'll delete the Windows 7 partition. Only problem is that while accessing some of my Vista...

Annoing behavior when viewing folders by fbernaus
From time to time my Windows Vista seems to forget my folders settings and changes its properties. I like to see ALL my folders like regular folders, i.e. file name, last modified date, size and type. All of a sudden some or all of the folders change to 'Image and videos', why the hell would I want to know when a Word document was captured with my camera (if this makes any sense)? then I go to...

Confused about \[username] folder by yopumpkinhead
Hi all, I just got Vista and am still learning how it works, so please forgive me if this is a simple question. I noticed today when installing some of my software that my folder does not show up when browsing in C:\Users\. The only folders there are Default and Public. My folder is accessible under "Desktop" in the Explore menu, but it is not in C:\Users. Why not, and how do I put it back?

File name too long restoring from shadow by Kenneth Porter
A user reported problems with his profile and attempted to restore the entire profile from a restore point from the previous day. (He didn't know to restore from a *different* profile such as Administrator so files wouldn't be locked.) I found it blocked unable to copy the thumbnailcache files from Windows/Explorer. I skipped those, figuring it was normal for them to be locked, and started...

Just lately my loptop got infected by a virus. I cleaned it up to fix it. Now, when i rebooted my loptop, windows doesnt work anymore. Everytime i log-in to my user account, a pop-up window appears saying "C:\Windows\System32\SCVHSOT.exe Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
