Okay, so some of my applications were in the G:\ drive, and suddenly, I can't open them, because:"Windows cannot find G:\xxxxxxx (where xxxxxxx is the name of the file). Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

But the file IS there. That is the problem with all applications/videos/songs there. I have a bunch of songs and other stuff, but they don't want to run. I tried copying the file to another drive..the same problem.

Also, when I want to open a picture that is there, it says: There was a problem starting G:\ProgramFiles\Windows Photo Viewer\Photoviewer.dll - The specified module cannot be found.

I think it may be of assistance if you were to tell us what O/S ie Windows 7 professional 32 bit or whatever.

The make and full model of the computer if branded

If not please supply some details as to motherboard, ram etc using System information and then copy and paste please from there. Please do not attach as a file that I have to then open

Also and perhaps most importantly - G Drive. external, partition of internal etc. -

Any chance the drive letter has been changed.

No, the letter is not changed.

I don't fully understand the "G Drive. external, partition of internal etc."

it is NTFS if you are asking that. As for the internal-external thingy, my drive is located IN my computer. Sorry I don't know how to explain it, and thanks for your time!

1. Go programs, accessories, system tools, system infiormation.

On the window that opens edit tab, click select all

edit click copy

on reply right click paste.

2. Sorry about external etc. I have no way of knowing your level of knowledge and some people become quite offended if we spell out basic requests.

I meant is an external hard drive attached to your computer by a usb cable

OR does your computer have more than ONE internal hard drive and is one of those lettered G

OR is your ONE internal hard drive partitioned, that means the capacity of the drive is divided into portions, that show in Computer (My computer) as separate listed drives.

If you ae still confused then go to Computer, on the start menu, right click and click manage - when that window opens click disk management on left pane.

When that window opens send me a screnshot.

Here is how to do that

press prt scrn key

then start, programs

accessories

paint

click edit tab and paste

click file tab and save as

Save as jpeg.

On reply use full editor and attach the jpeg file as the screenshot.

Control Panel
Desktop.ini
Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)
Private character editor.

OK

The reason I did it that way was I did not want to spend time typing a long reply and you to sign off for the night - whilst I was typing.

YOU have two hard drives in that computer

One is partioned into drives C, E and F.

The other is partioned into drives lettered D and G

Drive E is DANGEROUSLY low on free space it has 1%. It is 49GB in round figures and you have ONLY 550 MB

What is on E Drive as you must urgently move some of whatever it is to an external drive

LOOK at your disk management screen

You only have 5% and 6% ON TWO OTHER OF THE DRIVES.

Your minimum you should be working to on those drives is 10%. That is the minimum

The only exception to this rule is a 100MB partition that is established when windows 7 is installed (depending on how that is done)

and a recovery partition.

Both of those are not written to in any circumstances, so the question of free space on those is not in issue.

HOWEVER the drives on your system are not in that group

YOU must also pay urgent attention to C drive, that is where windows is installed and on there you only have 1.44 GB - 5% of free space.



You also only have 6% on D Drive - I know your paging file is on there that is hard drive space that is used as ram but what else is on there please.

You NEED to open those drives start with the one that has ONLY 1% and tell me WHAT is on the drive please ie: personal data, programs, etc.

So it is not malware? My system will (hopefully) not crash if I free up space? I am currently trying to remove malware from C:, by the help of Render.
