I had my virus-cleaned HP Windows XP Hard Drive data transferred to my replacement Lenovo. I like my computer finagled to respond in my old, familiar, set-in-my ways routine. If anyone can offer advise to make it so, I would appreciate it. I have unsuccessfully searched and clicked on the computer and forums.
1. I want my computer to immediately open a file/folder when I click on it. The new XP Pro computer immediately opens a Search program. To get immediate opening, I now have to right click to call up an option menu, that has Search above Open on it. Then I have to click open.
2. I want my usb 2.0 connected Acomdata external storage Hard Drive to open with its black background menu (Restore, Skype, Explore, etc) and N in the lower right area of my task bar. When I first downloaded the driver CD Disc, it was recognized and the Acomdata worked as usual. Now, when I flip the on switch, an Autoload window comes up, the drive is divided in 2, as a removable device and as a CD Drive (which now contains all options on the driver disc as Winzip). I tried to shut off autoload, but Acomdata is not listed as a Program. When I close the autoload window before it completes its task, all the Acomdata menu and options appear and N is on the task bar.
3. I prefer my computer to start in Normal mode. When I run msconfig, the computer is set as Selective with various programs installed by my computer tec. When I pressed Normal, the computer restarted with all my email/web modem addresses missing and requiring their re-entry. When I re-pressed Selective and restarted, the computor had these addresses up and working.
Thanks to anyone who may help me get what I want, without 2 or three unnessary additional steps that rattle my nerves and grind my teeth.
