You might have used another user account for installing the software. Some software sets the shortcuts for the user that is logged in when the program is installed. So afterwards, when using another account to login, these shortcuts are not within the startmenue. Try searching the folder "c:\Documents and settings"...

Put your windows disk in the CD drive and the system should boot from the CD drive. Or from the dos command line enter the following command say your CD drive is "d" and your hard drive is "c". expand d:\i386\command.nt_ c:\windows\system32\command.ntfor windows xp or ntexpand d:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\command.com for rest of windows ver.

The program for Windows Explorer, explorer.exe, should be located in C:\Windows\System32.

If you have two explorer windows open, one for the c drive and one for the e drive, just highlight all the files you want to transfer and drag them over the the e drive window.

You can do a search for shdocvw.dll on the internet, download that file, and save it into the c:\windows\system folder, OR you can install Internet Explorer 5+, or you can reinstall the network components bundled with Windows.

Start - My Computer - Local Disk C and explorer opens with content of local disk C

If the computer has a windows operating system and the hard disk has more than one partition, My Computer or Windows Explorer will show each partition as a local drive. For instance, if you have two partitions, My Computer or Windows Explorer will show partition #1 as Local drive c:\, and partition #2 as local drive d:\, and will bump the CD or DVD drive to the next available letter, in this case e:\, and so on.

That depends on how many drives or virtual drives you have on your computer. Mainly the C: drive has Windows on it, if you only have a C: drive all your information and programs go here, but if you have multiple drives C: drive should be mainly for your Windows operating system.

Drive 'c' is the hard drive that the operating systems (Windows XP/ Vista/ Win 7 etc) is stored.

Simplest way in Internet Explorer is go into Tools/Internet options/general and delete files. Aletrnatively use Windows explorer (Accessories) to go into the folder in your C drive TEMP and delete them manually.

The letter used by Windows XP (ie a, b, c, d, e etc) is essentially a reference. By default, letters 'a' and 'b' are floppy drives and drive 'c' is the hard drive that the operating systems (Windows XP in this case) is stored. The other letters are used whenever Windows XP detects another drive. if you have a CD/DVD drive in your computer it is liekly to be displayed as drive 'd'.

In Windows, Drive C: is the first hard drive.On the PC compatibles (DOS then Windows, which was a program running under DOS), drive A: was reserved for the first floppy disk drive and B: for the second floppy disk drive. Drive C: was reserved for the first hard drive.Many computers don't even have floppy drives anymore, but the first hard drive is still labeled C:

If your keyboard has a "Windows Key", then Windows+E brings up Windows Explorer.Right click on My Computer, and click on Explore.Click on Start, then Run, and enter in a folder name, like "C:", and click OK - that will open up Windows Explorer (without the left hand navigation pane) on that folder.Click on Start, then Run, and enter in "explorer /e,c:\folder" where "c:\folder" is replaced with the folder you want to view. This is roughly the same as the previous point, except that the left hand navigation pane is visible.Thanks,Sahil Agarwal..

you can't format the drive that you're running windows from while in windows. use the setup disk to run a recovery console and you should be able to format it from there using format c:

You mispelled it. It's ntldr. To anwer your question, it's found on the root of your system drive, which in most cases is your C: drive. The file is normally hidden from view. You will have to configure Windows Explorer to show you hidden files and folders.
