Recover Computer Crash Using System Restore

Imagine a very nice evening, you are downloading and installing new game, application or a nice software and suddenly you realize that your computer is not performing as it was just 1 minute before or has crashed. So what is next? Call somebody to fix it. Wait… Here comes System Restore. (Available with Windows Me/XP/Vista and system restore is completely reversible)


What it can do for me

System Restore works like the Undo command in Microsoft Word. System Restore will remove any system changes that were made since the last time you remember your computer working correctly. The beauty of this is that it does not affect your personal data files such as Microsoft Word documents, browsing history, favorites, e–mail or My Documents so you won't lose changes made to these files.


How System Restore works

It does this by monitoring changes to your files and folders and taking a snapshot of your system at regular intervals. If a problem with your system is encountered, you can restor…

How To Hide Folders and Files in Windows

There are situations when you want to hide some of your folders or files in your computer from being seen by others. This applies specially when you share the user login in Windows XP. By default, every user's Desktop and My Document is not accessible to other users of the same computer. If a user account is set to lock the desktop after certain period of inactive time and have set a password, then you don't need to hide any files or folders as you are the only one who can unlock it using your user-name and password. Having said that, you can not protect the files from being seen by a person sitting next you and monitoring your screen. You need to hide the files/folders to avoid this kind of scenario.
What I am going to discuss here is a simple approach to hide folders & files in Windows XP without using any additional paid/free software. We will be using attribute of files/folder for this purpose. Using attribute, any file/folder can be set to hide and be unhidden. T…

Remove Multiple Frames From Word File

When you scan a document with OmniPage Pro or any other related softwares or convert your PDF document into word document, the word document contains multiple frames. Frames make the document next to impossible to edit the new document because all text is placed inside frames. We need to remove those frames if we want to edit the document. There are two approaches to tackle the problem. One is to remove all the frames from the document at once or remove individual frame one by one. Removing individual frame is easy. You have to right click on the edge of the frame and select Remove Frame option. That will only remove single frame. This will be too much of wastage of time. So another approach is to remove all the frames at once. Please follow the steps below:

Approach 1:
>> Open the file which has frames in MS Word>> Save the file as a Plain text file. (As seen in the screenshot)

>> Open the new text file you have just saved in Notepad or WordPad or some other text e…
