I am not sure why I cant post to old thread, since some other posts have 38 and more.
can someone explain this?
I am trying to answer last post
Re: Ok here it is
OK after two iterations that was the info asked. Do you see the difference now between fetching the fuzzy info from a newbie vs. the exact context supply ?
Now, the landscape is clear. Your actual data is under the C:\Documents and Settings\JM.TIKIHOME2. In other words, that's the folder for USERPROFILE.
You have however one little problem. The TMP and TEMP point to another folders that it should be. First, check if you have the TEMP folder under C:\Documents and Settings\JM.TIKIHOME2\Local Settings path.
So, in order to correct these, from Control Panel, open System applet, click Advanced Tab. Click Environment Variables button. Select TEMP and click Edit button. Replace that line with:
Repeat the same with TMP.
Instead of typing just use the copy and paste method that you've already learned.
After the change, supply the new results for:
set > a.txt | notepad a.txt
above is post
1)I can not find the folders you suggest
First, check if you have the TEMP folder under C:\Documents and Settings\JM.TIKIHOME2\Local Settings path. ??? local settings path, I am unsure how to find this, can you be a little more specific or clear?
2)Why does it show 2 processors when I only have 1, all my other pc's I tested this on stated processor's 1
in the previous report I posted
3)These files were not like this prior to crash
these are the files XP named or re named when it recovered itself on re boot.I have never named anything JMB851
4)What is going to happen when I follow your directions?
Currently pc is working and if it is minor problem do I need to worry about this little problem. I am scared about crashing it again. thanks
5) If I do this then please explain what will happen to the 2 diff user accts, their files and programs and settings etc... I have to know what I am doing before I just click along. I may need to do more preparation with information on pc if it is going to delete one of the user accts.
