If you have Windows XP Home Edition installed on your computer
you can simply open Event Viewer and look under Security for
all logon and logoff events. To start Event Viewer you can go
to the Start button, click on Run, enter eventvwr.msc in the
Open box and hit the OK button.
If you have XP Professional Edition installed and you haven't
enabled auditing of logon events then you won't be able to view
past events. If you want to enable auditing in order to view
future events, try the following:
Open Control Panel and double click on Adminstrative Tools.
Double click on Local Security Policy.
I am having trouble since a file was corrupted. I may have to repair XP, but
am hoping to try a reinstall of ie or sp2 first, but can not figure out how
to do it.
Please don't send me here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=318378
The "How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in
Windows XP" article says nothing about repairing or reinstalling ie, though
the title seems to imply that it would. In addition, the section on
reinstalling sp2 has nothing on reinstalling sp2. In fact, following the
directions, I was not even able to download sp2.
So I ask: How can I reinstall sp2?
How can I reinstall ie6?
The problem seems to be that I can not download the software to reinstall it.
ThanksYou could try a System Restore

When I bought the last USB stick the stick was pre-formatted by factory with a single FAT32 partition.
I wonder wether it is possible to

b) create a new or even multiple new partitions on a single USB stick?
How can I accomplish this ?
JoeBoth are possible, Use Disk Management, right click my computer, select

When I try the sound recorder on Windows it will not record; do you know
what the problem is?Logitech support and I tested the microphoen through the Windows microphone
recorder. The microphone works with another computer, co Logitech suggested
it could be the sound card.
I contacted E Machines and they said that drivers might be missing or
corrupted, but would not advise how to correc this , except by saying I could
use the system restore.
1. how can I troubleshoot my system to determine if it is a sound card
2. if it is the card, it is part of the motherboard (LM810E); can I just
replace a sound portion?
3. if not the card but the driver (s), how do I fix this- do I need to
download/reinstall sound drivers?

1. Quit all programs that are running.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Type: regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll , and then click OK.
