  1. Deleted Windows on Accident


    I think I majorly messed up and am wondering if all hope is lost. I got a new computer, and had to transfer my Microsoft Key to it to "activate windows." The key I have is only for one device and I had to therefore uninstall it from the old computer. Well, I think I uninstalled Windows, which I think was the wrong move. The whole "You need your product key to activate Windows" threw me off.


    I saved all my files and photos from the old computer, but was hoping to grab a few more things, like saved passwords, etc, AND just keep using it as a backup for things that don't need the office programs. But now when I try to start it, I get these options photos attached. I DID try the "Reset this PC" while attempting to keep my files, but that of course did not work. I feel like my next attempt would be to restore while removing my files, but if there is any other option to try before doing so, I would prefer that.


    I did end up downloading the installation on a USB, which is where the installation photos come from I tried uploading images in order but it didn't seem to do that, sorry!. It seems I can't just "upgrade" to install and keep my documents. So if I select to Install Windows Only, it has me select a drive. If the answer is to proceed with that, which drive do I choose? Or do I go back to the original troubleshooting and do the recovery manager without the USB?


    Thank you for ANY help anyone can offer!!

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
