It's located on windows explorer menu bar. If you still couldn't find it, try pressing alt button to show up the menu bar.

OK, so I got a virus in my computer few days ago. I couldn't do anything, since all programs seemed to be wiped out from my start menu..so I just shot it off, went to someone who helped me to get back my driver C (He kinda repaired the driver before logging into windows, and according to him, restored the data that was there 2-3 days before the virus)

So, my laptop is working fine BUT all files and documents are gone, so all programs (even programs I installed myself) are there..but no files (words, pdf, pics...etc etc)

The funny thing is that the laptop still thinks the files are there. So, I can not create a new folder called My Documents, because it already exists!!

I can not save pics as xxxx because that name already exists...even when "favving" web pages on internet, they already are on my favorite list..

so, is there a chance/way to get back the files and documents since the computer think they are still there??

Best regards

Assalaam aleykom

I still have no solution for this and would appreciate all help :)

And the problem is not only with the interenet files, its ALL files in my laptop

thanx already

Yaa you got right answer that ur infected by a spyware or adware, does this voice comes when a browser is open or all the time even ur doing nothging, sometime spyware installs a genuine app so AV will not detect it. So does it comes when ur browsing or all the time and which operating system ru using.

it happens almost every time i log into facebook. sometimes, it seems to be triggered by a "congrats uve won" ad on FB which has a grey background and yellow smiley face.

and im using windows 7

I think it's a spam.. Go on your firefox and add this plugin ..

Same thing if you use Chrome..

So you've done what ali said before ? tool -> hide folders ?

If nothing happened, do this:

Tools > Folder Options > View

then uncheck Hide protected folders ..

protecting my video and pics files from viruses

Perhaps you could protect your pics/vidz from viruses, but what if someone steal your laptop at school for example ?

I think the best solution would be to save all your data on an external hard drive ...

protecting my video and pics files from viruses

There is very simple and easy way to do that use winzip or winrar and compress it with password protection and encyrt name this way no one can unlock it or see what inside it and virus can't infect them (btw they can delete or hide them but thats usual with every system file.

So I've started the download, I ended up with Softomic downloading programme, and then apparently the download of Window Live Moviemaker was finished. So i tried to look for the programme on my laptop but I can't find it anywhere to open it.. Should I download it again?

I also tried to delete the Softomic thing but it keeps saying i can't delete it because it is openen elsewhere in exe. file or something..

WHAt IS THAT??!!?? lol

(salam)

on your keyboard : alt + ctrl + suppr > you will get a list of all process running on your computer, find something called softonic.exe and end it.

And now you can delete it:


  • Open Programs and Features by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Programs and Features.

  • Select a program, and then click Uninstall

It seems programm is running in background, so firstly to uninstall it normal way. (as cendrillon suggested)

Control panel>add or remove progam > Softonic (search for softonic or similar thing)

if its not there try to find it in ur start menu.

if its uninstall from there u r good to go.

So tell me know if its not there or unable to uninstall so can find different solution.

Note:Never dowload software from these sites always try to download for orginal company site

like : Windows Movie maker is windows app so get it from microsoft (try to google it)

Salaam,

I got a problem recently. I have a Toshiba A200 Laptop and it's Windows Vista.

When I shut down the computer, it logs off and goes to the shut down screen like normal.

Then some blue error screen comes up (with all sorts of letters and numbers) and rather than shutting down, it restarts the laptop.

I then get taken to the login screen and have to shut down from there by clicking that red button on the bottom right:

Windows%20Vista%20Clear%20Main%20Login.jpg

So I want to know why my laptop isn't shutting down normally and how to fix this.

Jazak Allah.

He said: Do you affirm and accept My compact in this (matter)? They said: We do affirm. He said: Then bear witness, and I (too) am of the bearers of witness with you.
      [Pickthal 3:81] When Allah made (His) covenant with the prophets, (He said): Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge. And afterward there will come unto you a messenger, confirming that which ye possess. Ye shall believe in him and ye shall help him. He said: Do ye agree, and will ye take up My burden (which I lay upon you) in this (matter)? They answered: We agree. He said: Then bear ye witness. I will be a witness with you.
      [Yusufali 3:81] Behold! Allah took the covenant of the prophets, saying: "I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a messenger, confirming what is with you; do ye believe in him and render him help." Allah said: "Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?" They said: "We agree." He said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses." ***** مَا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِنْ رِجَالِكُمْ وَلَٰكِنْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا {40} [Shakir 33:40] Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah is cognizant of all things.
      [Pickthal 33:40] Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets; and Allah is ever Aware of all things.
      [Yusufali 33:40] Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things. ***** Relevant part of the Verse: النَّبِيُّ أَوْلَىٰ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ ۖ وَأَزْوَاجُهُ أُمَّهَاتُهُمْ ۗ } [Shakir 33:6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, .....
      [Yusufali 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, ....... [Yusufali 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves,  ***** At Ghadir Khumm,  "Then the Messenger of Allah continued:  "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?"   People cried and answered:  "Yes, O' Messenger of God." Then followed the key sentence denoting the clear designation of 'Ali as the leader of the Muslim ummah.  The Prophet held up the hand of 'Ali and said:  "For whoever I am his Leader (mawla), 'Ali is his Leader (mawla)." https://www.al-islam.org/ghadir/incident.htm At Ghadir Khum, Question was asked(33:6), Muslims Answered. Seal of the Prophets, and the Witness over ALL Prophets( 3:81). Mawla here means what?  Does this mean, Mawla only in delivering revelation? What does More right over the Believers( All Past Prophets and believers present at Ghadir Khumm). Now the question is: Lets see if the cal for Unity are real. Are the Muslims united or disunited. 1) Messenger, only in Delivering Revelation. Rest, only a human like us, others an have better judgement,  opinions in leadership,preserving Quran, etc.. 2) Messenger, but Book of Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى is sufficient for us 3) Mawla in All comprehensive and Complete sense. (Prophet/Messenger/Imam-Khaliftullah Vicegerent of Allah(awj) without limitation of time and space - All my affairs- as Islam is the same as our Nature, as its a Way of life not only a personal relationship with  Allah(awj).  Let's see what this Unity, talk is all about. We can't Unite here, All hopes are lost.
    • http://en.wikishia.net/view/Wadi_l-Salam_Cemetery One of the reasons to the importance of this cemetery is its proximity to Imam 'Ali's (a) holy shrine. In addition, it has been indicated and admired frequently in Shi'areferences. It appears the earliest hadith about it is one narrated by al-Kulayni (255/869 - 329/940-1), said to be from Imam 'Ali (a). Subsequent references have narrated this hadith numerously. In this hadith, Imam 'Ali (a), accompanied with one of his companions, goes to Wadi l-Salam and uttered: "No pious man passes away on any part of the earth unless his spirit is ordered to come to Wadi l-Salam. Here, is a part of Heaven."[8]  Al-Kulayni, al-Kafi, Vol.3, P.243
    • I think she knows that if she reports her father he would be arrested and maybe go to prison. This would be catastrophic for her mother and family.
    • Concept of Unity is linked to Leadership. Cause of disunity. Ghadir Khum. What was missing at Saqifa, Fadak, Battle of Jamal, Battle of Siffin, and at Karbala? The other side apparently, believed in Tawheed, Prophethood, Prayers, Zakat, Fasting, Hajj, Recitation of Quran…… Except for Recognition of the Vicegerent/Representative of Allah(awj). "O Apostle! Deliver what has been sent down to you from your Lord; and if you don't do it, you have not delivered His message (at all); and Allah will protect you from the people ..." (Qur'an 5:67) Our safety is of no concern to us. We will not stop unmasking the culprits, removing the veil of deceit from the faces of those whose teaching have and will undermine True Islam.  Or we have lost the Message of Karbala. Why would any human be offended if Evil is exposed? How is this undermining Unity? Have you ever heard of such talk, do not expose the Traitors, it's not good for the unity of the country. If someone is supporting the Oppressors, the Unjust , they should be asked, why in the world you would do that , your innate Nature does not even allows it. Have you ever seen or heard that the humans love the Murderer and the murdered, the Oppressor and the oppressed ? This is against Human Nature. Coexistence is not the same as Unity. We coexist with other Humans, business/life goes on. Under the Umbrella topic of Unity, lies the propagation of the Political Islam/islam of Shafiqa, Jamal, Siffin…Silence them( the Shia's) with unity talk, so we can continue playing with the religion
