Destination Folder Access Denied by mattaustin
Trying to delete a folder that I downloaded from a file-sharing network, and keep getting this message: Destination Folder Access Denied. Reading the posts on the subjects gets me way over my head.

Problems with the Vista Backup and Restore Center program by Robert Miles[_2_]
I've noticed a few problems with the Backup and Restore Center program that comes as part of Windows Vista. 1. It's found BOTH under Accessories - System Tools and under Maintenance in the main menu. Only one of these is capable of handling backups large enough to require formatting at least three DVD+RWs. If the list of previous backups is currently empty (for example, because the main...

File associations not responding in Vista Home Premium by anna
I can not associate htm and html files to Front Page 2003. When I try to Open With, point through the files to find FP03 program file, it will not associate with html or htm. It instead changes to an Internet Explorer file. It is strange. I think I need to set all associations back to default for programs and start over. Is there a way to do that? Is there a Microsoft utility to manage...

Can A Hacker Steal My Files If I Don't Share Any Folders In Vista File Sharing? by john ha
Hi, I accidentally left my router unsecured for a couple of hours. I also left my laptop on during this time, connected wirelessly to the unsecured router. My question is, can a hacker in my apartment complex who really wants to, connect to this router and hack into my laptop's hard drive and steal/transfer files? I have not shared any folders.
