Xp Mode - Issue Accessing Hard Drive With Files

So i've had windows 7 for awhile now. This was not a problem before. My harddrive recently crashed so i got a new c drive and re-installed windows 7 all is well except my windows xp mode. Before when i run xp mode i can see both my c and e (slave drive) and access all my files. Now i open windows xp mode and its has access to nothing. This was not an issue before. I can install programs via usb, but i need to access files from my slave drive to use within windows xp mode. So having the programs are kinda pointless cause i can't do anything in them. I have no clue why this is an issue it worked perfectly fine before.

Who Is Accessing Shared Files?

I run windows 7 ultimate 64-bit on a laptop that commutes with me between home and my office at university. When i am at school, my machine is assigned a global ip address, so i have the network set to "public". Today when i was exploring control panel, i noticed that "sharing" was turned on the "users" folder. When i went to disable sharing, i was informed that a user was accessing a file and would loose data if i disabled sharing. This concerns me because my data should not have been publicly accessible in such a manner. I need to determine who was accessing my files remotely, and more importantly what was accessed. Additionally, why was "users" shared in the first place on a public network?

Accessing Files From An Old Installation

I have a pc that i have just built with new parts. I have taken the hard drive from the old pc and installed it as a 2nd drive. I am now having trouble accessing files. Specifically, i'm trying to get into the local data folder in my old user account to get an old iphone backup. When i try to access i get "access denied" and when i try to change ownership nothing changes.

When i go into security properties and try to remove the listing "account unknown(s-5-21-. )" It says it's receiving permissions from it's parent and to try turning off the option for inheriting options. Does anyone know where that setting is? I've tried searching for it, but with no luck.

I have a printer connected via usb to a computer windows xp. I have that computer and a computer running windows 7 connected to a home network. I can see the printer from the windows 7 machine, but when i try to connect it tells me that windows can't connect and gives me an error message of x000000d. Is there ant way to make this happen?

I connected the printer directly to the windows 7 machine, loaded the drivers and it was fine, but i don't want it set-up that way. On the xp machine, i have the printer set to share.

Accessing Xp Only Usb Device Seamlessly

Ok, while upgrading a setup to xp-professional, the problem arose that the old scanner didn't have a viable driver for windows 7 64. I just setup windows xp mode, and was able to load it with the xp drivers and an old image program to do the scanning. However when i try opening the program seamlessly, it opens with the usb connection to the scanner disabled, likewise i've had to manually activate the scanner in xp mode every time. Is there a way to change the default usb settings in xp mode so it can automatically claim that usb device every time it opens, including seamlessly?

Speed Of Accessing A Network Server

I have a macbook. It is running os x, and windows xp and windows 7 on the same machine so i feel this is a good comparison. I have an in home wireless network through a usrobotics router. Attached to that router is a 500gb little file server. It's formatted fat32 and it contains many gbs of music. Anything attached to the router uses cat6 ethernet cables. When i attempt to access this server with win7 it can take over 1/2 an hour for it to list the contents.

When i attempt to access this server with win xp it can take only a few minutes. Os x grabs the data in only a few seconds. My questions:1)is there something in win 7 i should be tweaking to get it to access the data faster?2) is there a better way to setup the server for win 7?3) anything else you might think of.

Accessing Network Executable As Administrator Problem

I'm having a bit of a problem with accessing some stuff on our network. We have a network share full of installs for different programs that we use. There's only three groups listed in the security permissions that have access to the folder and all three have full control. I double-checked in ad and verified that i'm a member of all three groups including domain admins.

The problem is that while i'm able to browse the folders, create and delete stuff, whenever i try to run one of the installs, i get:

"You do not have permission to access \serverfolderinstall.exe"

None of my co-workers get this error and can run the installs fine. I used to be able to run the installs, but recently we moved the folder to a server running server 2008 and we all upgraded to windows 7 enterprise. We're all baffled as to what's going on.

Accessing Messages Imported In Live Mail

I am migrating from outlook express 6 (oe6) to windows live mail (wlm). So i changed the location of store in oe6 and imported the folders in wlm. It seemed to import them ok. But i can't access the messages in wlm? I even looked in "imported folder" under "storage folders" but the mail messages are not there.

I tried another thing. I changed the store location in wlm. It gave a message that it is copying 17k messages (which is about what i had in all the folders i had imported) into the new location, so i know they are there.

(1) how do i access those messages in wlm?
(2) i only see edb and some other files in the wlm store location but not the neatly organized folders that i imported from oe6?

Windows 7 Freeze In Normal Mode, Safe Mode Works Fine

I am out of ideas. Three days ago my computer started freezing within a few minutes after startup. Freezes with no mouse movement and no keyboard. Must shutdown using the power button. Happens every time i start in normal mode. Safe mode works fine. I have done quite a bit of reading and tried a number of things, so far to no avail. Quite a few error codes present, here are some:

Winlog 6000
Service 7001
Distrib 10005
Service 7026
Event log 1101
Kernel 41
Browser 8032
Load perf 3011
Load perf 3012

I have tried restoring, turning off all non-microsoft services, disabling sound, updating video driver, memory test, adjusting bios per g skill tech forum. All hardware showing normal operation in device manager.

I can't find the minidump .dmp folder in c:/windows. The only location i find for .dmp files is in the watchdog folder, and there are quite a few in there. Let me know if i need to upload them.

My computer is a couple of months old and has been working flawlessly until this happened with one exception. (I have been getting occasional monitor blanking for a couple of seconds followed by a notification that the graphics driver has stopped responding and was successfully restored. )

Files Send To Dvd-rw Drive On Network Results In Deleted Files

"send to dvd-rw drive" when the source files are on a network drive results in deleted files! Windows 7 rc 7100. Have a mapped drive to another computer. I opened the folder, right clicked on a group of .doc files. I choose "send to dvd-rw drive". Responded to the prompt of "use like usb drive" or use in a cd/dvd player by choosing the 2nd choice. Then was faced with a prompt that filename.doc is no longer in this location cancel/retry/skip. All the files were gone! Not in recycle bin of either computer.

Programs Files Vs Program Files (x86)

What is the difference between the "program files" folder & the "program files (x86)" folder, in c drive? Various programs seem split almost equally between the 2, after i upgraded from vista to 7, except that internet explorer is in both, meaning that when i "open with" for a text file i get ie listed twice. Can i move everything to one or other of these & delete the other one? Is one for 64-bit and one for 32-bit programs or something like that?

A2c Files Downloaded As Zip Files

If you go to and try to download one of their image files, ie8 changes the extension from a2c to zip making the file unusable unless the user manually changes the file extension. park/index

In our school network users are not allowed to change the file extension so that does not work. I found that the user when downloading has to change the file type to all files and change the file extension then. This is a bother to have to remember. When i tried with a different browser (chrome) the a2c file was recognized correctly. The computers in my school are laptops running windows xp. At home my desktop runs windows 7 and the problem is there as well. There was no problem with ie7.

Docx Files Downloading As Zip Files

I am having an issue with docx files turning into zip files when i try and download them in ie8. I have done alot of research on this problem and have looked into the 2 main solutions to this problem: 1) set security settings to "open file based on file content, not file extension" to disable  2) check the mime type table on the web server and make sure the office 2007 extensions are added.

The first step i tried and the file was still trying to open as a zip file. The second one i was only able to ask the vendor because the web server does not belong to me, but the vendor said they were able to get the same exact docx file to download as a docx file and everyone on their end was able to. I am able to save the zip file and rename the file extension to docx and open it, but sadly this will not be an acceptable answer.

I've tried adding registry settings to allow it to open with docx files as well with no success.
I am curious if anyone has any other suggestions for me?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Xp Mode

Why can't microsoft assist with a windows 7 issue that has not been resolved in the three weeks since i installed the os? Microsoft support has not yet found a resolution to my efforts of getting xp mode to work on my computer.

1. I have installed windows 7 professional in 64 bit on a new 1tb hard drive.

2. Virtualization is turned on inbios.

3. I am running a 3. 22 intel cpu. My ram is 4gb.

4. I have downloaded, installed and uninstalled xp modeand windows virtual pc at least a dozen times over the past three weeks.

5. I am the administrator and only user of this machine.

Yet every time i attempt to install xp mode, i always get a pop-up window that says: "the virtual machine configuration could not be created. User does not have sufficient access right. " The windows 7 forums have not helped. Does anyone at microsoft have any ideas how to fix this program?

Everything else (except a few dated drivers) on windows 7 appears to be working perfectly.
