I am just curious Mitchell65 - the C drive that appears down the side of my screen as an option as a place to store items - Is this a drive for the computer and not used much?

I am just curious.

I am also having problems with Adobe - you must have known. Thank you for your post before - I printed out for future use and I promise to post a bit more information so I get the best assistance on the forum

Sorry but i am totally confused. The C Drive is the only internal hard drive that you have on this PC. It is VERY VERY important. As you can see on the right pane of your screenshot it contains your Operating System and all your programs. It is the "Works" of your PC!

Thank you for your reply - now I know what it is for. I was just curious.

I will definitely not apply any changes to this drive.

Thank you for your reply to my silly posts.

Melissa, no folders are shared unless you share them and it will have a small picture of 2 people on the icon of the shared folder. As mentioned C is where windows gets installed, don`t make any changes to it. It seems you are doing a lot of worrying over nothing. Just use your pc and enjoy W7. But we`re always here to help.

Looks like your recycle bin needs to be emptied, check it b4 you empty it. You don`t want to delete any Top Secret documents.

Dear Forum,

I have just looked at changing the properties of the sharing and as some of my files and have come accross an issue.

I have my computer that is connected to another computer - USER Vaio - it is connected via the network.

I have gone to change the sharing and it has come up with an error.

Due to the large data loss that I had prior and Word 2007 crashing - should I just leave the settings as is?

Hi Melissa
Why are you still tinkering with this sharing thing you have with your two machines. The very best way to solve all your problems once and for all is to back up all your data on an external hard drive from both PC's and do a clean install of the operating systems on both. Then don't touch networking or sharing without coming to the Forum and one of us will give you step by step guidance to a perfect network and sharing setup. But really stop worrying about the files you are sharing, you are only sharing them with yourself anyway. Nobody else can see then other than you and Grant and he is not that computer savvy as you have said so don't loose any sleep over it!

Alright - I will stop it.

I guess that I have been quite the pain and that is why no one is responding to my posts.

I am just wished to close the gateway. I guess that I will leave it - I do not know how it happened in the first place and I am an answers person.

I will stop going on here.

I feel terrible now.

Thank you.

Hi Melissa
You seem to have misinterpreted my last email. I am perfectly serious in suggesting that you do a clean install of your two machines. I say this in the knowledge that it will be much quicker and easier for you to have a good robust system that you can sit back and enjoy with no stress and worry. That I think is important to you.As you are posting over 7 posts a day you must be spending a lot of time here often I see as now very late into the night! That's your choice, of course but I am concerned that your poorly health will suffer even more if you don't get enough rest! Sorry to get pesonal but we are all friends here just trying to help. A clean install can be achieved within a couple of hours and it really would be of benefit to you. There is more than one expert on this subject here on this Forum and there is a very good tutorial giving step by step instructions. Very easy to follow if you take your time. Surely the thought of solving all your outhstanding problems in a few hours would be worth considering!
There is no question of people here not posting in your threads, all I can see is people trying to help! Just look at this one thread!
