Move Win 7 Installation To C Drive

I inadvertently installed windows 7 on the recovery drive in my pc - drive d, not the c drive as it should be. I completely messed up my pc - somehow i installed windows 7 on the small recovery drive in my dell laptop - not the c drive. Now, all my software is gone and i cannot even reinstall ms office, since it forces the installation to the d drive and there is virtually no space.

All my files and photos and music are still on the c drive. How can i move the windows 7 installation to the c drive where it belongs?

Mouse Cursor Wont Move

Today i did something really stupid. I was in an unsupervised chatroom earlier and another person and i got into it and i could definently tell that i angered him. I left the chatroom and about 15 mins later im on another website and the mouse cursor suddenly freezes and will not scroll on the page. Everything else seems to be working fine. So i restart the computer, the mouse is working when the windows password page comes up, so i type in the password and that page loads and then the main page comes up (the one with all the programs etc) and as soon as that pops up that is when the mouse cursor freezes and will not scroll or move.

Everything else continues to upload and seems to be working fine. So i restart the computer and put it in safe mode and the mouse works fine moves and everything. Anyways, the bottom line is i think that other person sent me a virus or something that wont allow my cursor to move in regular mode. What should i do? Also, i cannot get the sound to work on my computer in safe mode.

The bottom right volume icon says "audio service not running" and i would like it running in safe mode until i can get this cursor problem resolved. Any help is greatly appreciated and please explain in laymans terms because i know absolutely nothing about computers. Thank you so much for your time and have a beautiful day.

Website Blinks When I Move The Mouse

I have ie8 x64, and windows vista home x64. Ever since installing ie8 via windows update, i have had a very annoying problem. Lots of websites, including this page where i am submitting this question, blink or flash when i move the mouse. Just the page and elements on it, not the ie interface or windows task bar. I have read some confusing things as to whether this is an adobe flash player problem with ie8 x64 or just a glitch with ie8, but as it is doing it on this page, which from the source does not use adobe flash, i am not sure it is the problem.

Move Win 7 To A Different Hard Drive

Okay i had originally bought windows vista 64bit hp oem for my computer. Down the road i downloaded the 64-bit windows 7 while i was in university. I only had a wd 120gb drive, and i now have 50mb of empty space :( (computer is running way slow, and i need to have more space) so i bought a segate 500gb 7200rpm drive. Anyways i wanted to know, how can i install 7 onto my new drive and use my current one as a slave. My main problem is i don't have the disk for windows 7 b/c it was an upgrade, but i do have the verified serial number.

I cannot contact microsoft b/c they want to charge me 70$ just to talk to one of their support people. (Ridiculous, almost the cost of another oem). I guess the way i would like to do this is install the second hard drive and copy everything over to it, and then boot from that drive and wipe the one i'm using now. Possible?

Is It Ok To Move Backup Files / Directories?

I'm in the midsts of doing my first backup on a new laptop running windows 7 professional. I'm backing up to an external 2tb usb drive. The backup is about halfway done, and so far has created files called frank-laptop (my pc's network name) and mediaid. Bin, as well as a directory called windowsimagebackup, in the root directory of the external drive, which the pc recognizes as e:. I'd like to do some manual backups of data from other family computers to this same usb external drive. In order to keep from mixing files up, i'd like to create a new directory on the external drive to move the windows 7 backup files/directories into (say, something like "win 7 backup files").

Can i just use windows explorer to create a new directory on the external drive, and move the visible backup files/directories there? Is there anything special i need to do to let the system know where the files will now be stored? Are there any invisible files i need to worry about? Or does windows 7 itself provide some functionality i should use to relocate the backup files?

Sharing Wireless Network Between Win 7, Xp, Wireless Printer

I had no trouble sharing my wireless network when the desktop was xp and the laptop was xp. Since replacing the desktop with a new windows 7 unit, i cannot manage to set up a network. I just purchased a new wireless printer, and i cannot set it up wirelessly either. I can network the printer to work with the win7 desktop if i connect the printer to my router with a ethernet cable. My router sees all 3 devices and i can ping the printer and the laptop from the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

Move User Folders Off System Drive

Move user folders off system drive? Want all personal data on e, so need to move the user directories to e. Not individually, but globally. So all new users i create will have their user folder and docs on e.got a brand new notebook with win 7 home premium preinstalled. Using win 7 language. I shrank the hard drive volume to 55gb.

Made new simple volumes. I want all personal data on e, so need to move the user directories to e. Not by individually changing the location tab on dozens of folders, but globally. So all new users i create will have their user folder and docs on e from the gitgo. In xp, i could just change the "my documents" link on each desktop to go to e*. * Instead of c*. *, But with win7?

Like windows home server and most wise os installations, the system drive is isolated and a drive or 2 or 3 for everything else.get a problem? Just restore the system drive.

Move Hd To Another Computer Brand And Still Run Win 7

Converting from an oem version of win 7 to a full retail package to allow my drive to be used on another computer in the case of a computer crash. My computer crashed big time but the drive is ok and i need to somehow upgrade the oem win xp home to a version that will allow me to run on another brand of computer and not lose the programs & data on the drive.

This happened on my xp machine and i am considering purchasing a new computer with an oem windows 7. But i refuse to be locked to a particular computer brand or model in case of a crash but the hard disk is still ok. If i purchase a full retail package and overwrite the oem version will i be able to move my hd to another computer brand and still run the windows 7?

Desktop Icons Move - Multiple Monitors

I am using windows 7 64-bit on a laptop that i connect to an external monitor each day at work. Because the external monitor is higher resolution, the desktop extends beyond the area of the laptop monitor. When i arrange my icons on the external monitor desktop, and then later restart my computer without the external monitor, my icons get completely jumbled around. When i then plug in the external again, i have to spend 5 minutes rearranging my desktop.

This is getting very aggravating. The only partially successful solution i've found so far is to hit f8 to change the monitor selection and then put the computer to sleep, rather than shutting down. This works sometimes, but is not optimal and occasionally fails. What i want to do is lock the icons in place so they don't move around when i change monitors. Any suggestions?

Unable To Move / Delete / Rename Files

It's a simple problem but i cant find any solution. I dl a video from youtube (the 'guide' i followed http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=q-c5ldefcxa) and now i have some files with the size 0 bytes on my desktop that i cant move, delete or rename. I've tried delete, shift+delete, drag and drop in the trash, deleting using cmd. The feedback is that my comp is unable to find the files.
I downloaded a program that delete files at boot (gipo@moveonboot) but it returns with 'access denied' when i select the files.

I've also tried to create a new file with the exact name and when i do it 'disappears' into the file i want to delete, but when i drop the file it is deleted and the original file remains (when i rename the file theres no warning that it's the same name as another file). I'm out of ideas to approach this problem so please help me! Running w7 home premium on a dell studio 15 (don't think it matter but anyway. )

Ps. The files is just annoying and not dangerous in any way, also the ending is just a '. ' 'example. Flv. ' ds.

Cannot Move Windows From One Monitor To Other - Dual Monitor Setup

I have two monitors of the same resolution connected to an ati radeon hd 4300/4500 video card. In windows 7 extended mode i see a full working desktop on one monitor, but only the background picture on the other - the four-square flag motif again a blue background with wispy lines, butterfly etc.

No taskbar, icons or anything else. On one occasion briefly the mouse cursor appeared on it instead of on the full desktop image. If i try to drag a window on to the second monitor it won't go there. The settings are landscape with two mointors "1" and "2". I have two images but how can i use the second one?

I have a problem with two different drives both running win7, one 32 the other drive64, on a dual boot system. I want to pull the win32 drive, but it also has my boot information for the win64 drive. When removed it will not boot. I have been working on this for 5-6 weeks. I want to remove the win7/32 and put the boot image of win7/64 on the second drive.

I booted from the win764 install dvd, and went to there pair your computer. The placethat displays the operating systems installed, none will show. I have tried bootsect from the command prompt. It seems to work, but tells me no partition on the second drive. Or on another attribute used, it can not find the path to the drive. I have tried rebuild bcd, fixmbr, etc.

Move Outlook Express Emails To Outlook 2007

Ok, i've read huge quantities of info on how to do this. I have my old folder saved from outlook express 6. I have a laptop with xp, outlook express 6 and outlook 2003 on it. I copied the outlook express folder to the laptop. Started up outlook express and changed the 'store' folder to the folder with my old saved mails. All the mail i can see in outlook express. Closed outlook express.

Opened up outlook, choose import and imported outlook express mail into outlook. I now have an outlook. Pst and a extend. Dat file in the documents and setting, outlook folder. So, i will copy these 2 files to a thumb-drive, then go to my windows 7 machine that has outlook 2007 installed and copy and overwrite the . Pst file on that machine.

Is this it? Is there going to be a problem with the fact that i created the . Pst file in outlook 2003? I read a few posts that i should not overwrite the original file, but to copy the new file somewhere else and just 'open' it in outlook 2007, is this correct?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Wireless Mouse

I am having trouble with my recently purchased 'targus' wireless mouse. It was fine till now, but all of a sudden i heard a beep from my laptop (similar one which comes when you plug/unplug something to a usb drive) and it just doesn't work anymore! No lights on the usb receiver which comes along with the mouse anymore!I remember the following things:1. I had installed updates from windows yesterday (but after that as well for couple of hours today it was fine)2. I got an alert for battery level and soon after i plugged in the power source i got the beep and mouse went dead in some moments. These may be irrelevant, but could anyone please help?

Wireless Printing

I have a new hp laptop connected to an hp ps1315 printer and another new hp laptop (both with windows 7) connected through a wireless network. I have been able to print wirelessly for a couple of months, but all of a sudden, the printer shows "offline" on the wireless laptop, but "online" on the connected laptop. Restarting everything seemed to work the first time this occurred, but will not work now. Is there a way to set the wireless laptop to "printer online"?
