Preferred Solution: version 5.0.0.1 (04.10.2017) is out

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Folks,
This is my first post here. I ordered a top-spec XPS 15 and it was faulty - would not connect to the internet during initial setup. I sent it back the next day and got the refund. the thing is I had a similar experience last year with an Inspiron, sent back the day after delivery due to poor build quality control.
So, how reliable are these XPS machines in general right out the box? Is there really such a problem with the Killer wireless cards that is suggested widely on the internet?
I replace my computer every 12-18 months and have never experienced a faulty new laptop before with other brands. I am a little worried to try Dell for a third time given my poor luck with them so far.
Any comments would be much appreciated to help me decide. I am also looking at the Lenovo Thinkpad now as an alternative, but aesthetically would prefer the Dell.

Hi, I upgraded my windows to the latest version 1703 os build 15063.14 and after that windows can't boot normally. I've tried so many options to let it work but none worked. It always end up in a black screen. Please any best solution.???????

Answer:Windows 10 latest version 2017 upgrade

You can download an ISO file here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=BNsvxcZV which can be used to create a bootable disk or memory stick. For an automated version download the Windows 10 Media Creation tool here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=MWQSbC77 which you can use to create installation media.
Obviously, you'll need to make the installation media on a computer that boots.

I searched old posts on this same topic and nothing helped, so here is a new topic on an old subject.

My XPS 12 has had problems for quite some time. I don't use the computer all that often anymore, but when I need it, it is not usable, because it has to be plugged in to work.
I have replaced the battery.
I have replaced the power cord
I have replaced the charging port
I have verified that I have the latest BIOS
When I plug the power cord into the computer, the power icon shows charging with the icon showing progression. After 5 - 10 seconds, the icon remains unchanged.
The power has slowly gone from 100% (with the new battery) to 1% now.
Battery Meter:
    Status - 0% Charging (it lies!)
        Enable Dell Intelligent Display in Battery Mode - grayed out and not selectable
        Enable Dell Extended Battery Life - selected, although I've tried both ways
        Remind me... - selected, although I've tried it both ways
    Battery Health
        Your battery is performing normally (it lies!)
    Desktop mode
        everything is grayed out and not selectable
    Longevity mode
        everything is grayed out and not selectable

I would love to click "Charge battery to 100% one time", but I cannot.

I have gone into the BIOS to try various options shown in related posts.

What else can I try?

I have read several recent articles that McAfee has revamped its IS with a new GUI employing new detection technology.

However, whenever I attempt to install it on one of my PC's, being that I have a 4 year license, the old version with the green border still appears.

For months, McAfee keeps saying they are gradually rolling it out. So far months have past, and nothing has changed.

Is it because the new version is too buggy?

I do not understand the delay. Does anyone know what is going on?
Is there a workaround to force the installation of the new gui?

been digging on this for a couple of hours and conclude that HP changed something in their BIOS update files, removing the Bootable Flash Utility that was there in the past. I have a HP laptop pretty dead, and the last hope is to try to force-update [replace] via Bootable USB stick - auto-run on the blind. HP has pages and videos dedicated to the process but they are wrong in today's world. There was a HP Utility for creating the USB stick, but it is not now included in the typical [email protected]#######.exe download as it once was, and I can find no other Utility except one for large shop replicated BIOS installs which involves editing batch files with a number of options.

So you know the story: this is a HP G4-1117dx, which had intermittent issues for months, then quit. The hard drive is fine. The system, when powered on, runs the fan, checks the optical drive, displays the LED'S at the power button and WIFI indicator, but no other evidence of life. not a hint of video, no beeps. Holding F11 or F12 produces nothing. Using the HP recommended key-sequence for recovering "last good copy" of bios fails [trying Windows-Key+V, or Windows-key+B]. Trying all this with external monitor as well as onboard produces no vid. So this is my last shot before pronouncing the MB dead.

any direction you can give is much appreciated.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

I built a new pc a month ago and have been running Win7 RC1 on it for the time being. Obviously Win7 is coming out next week so I am getting ready to purchase the full version. I could buy the Retail version of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit for $199, or the System Builders version for $99 on newegg.

Can anybody go ahead and buy the System Builders version, or is that restricted to actual pc resellers? Would newegg ask me for a resellers license or something if I try to order it? I built the pc, don't need MS support for it, and will only ever use that copy of Win7 on that pc. I just hate spending twice as much money for the Retail version if legally I can buy and use the System Builders version for half the price. Or am I better off paying more money for the Retail version?

Also, if I can buy the System Builders version, I assume it will come with the install dvd as well as install key? Plus, with that, I can install that copy on just this pc as many times as I want without limitations, correct? Meaning, I usually format and reload windows on a pc twice a year so over 4-5 years I will be reinstalling that copy of windows on the same pc 8-10 approx over the years.
 

Answer:Buying full version of Windows7: Retail version or System Builders version?

Anyone can buy an OEM license. They're cheaper because they don't include Microsoft support. You are your support. OEM licenses are tied to the hardware on which they're installed. Technically you are prohibited from installing an OEM copy on a completely different system, though many people will do this and successfully activate their copy by saying their motherboard failed and had to be replaced, etc.

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

I was assured that when I updated the current version of Microsoft Professional Pro 2010 (excel, word, Outlook and ACCESS) that all information would be intact and accessible after t he "uninstall- and new install".  The Excel, Word and outlook
are perfect.  However, the Access has been lost in cyber space.  Can this be reclaimed and how can do I get that back.  Need this asap.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks!

Okay so, I don't know if this matters but, I'm currently running my system in safe-mode with networking so it wont reboot on me.

So, a few days ago, in the middle of watching Red Riding Hood, my computer rebooted. Since then, it's gotten to the point where the computer reboots every few minutes, any time I log on and try to run anything, be it virus scans or whatever. And if I don't try to run anything, it will work for awhile then freeze up at which point I'll have to do a hard reboot. In safe mode, I've run both my virus programs, McAfee and Malwarebytes. Neither come up with any viruses. However, when I run CCleaner, it seems to come up with a couple of windows related issues, which it says it fixes but, it doesn't solve my issue.

So figuring windows got corrupted somehow, I wanted to reinstall. But BIOS doesn't recognize my dvd rom.

Once IN windows, it recognizes the dvd drive and installs it, but when I look at the device manager, it's installed ... Read more

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop, Windows 7-64bit.
My WMP11 does the following:
1. It clones music titles...even in front of my eyes.
2. Music files disappear.
3. Titles are now assuming wrong names even though content remains.
4. My music files come from my Music Library. Those have not changed or cloned..

5. I deleted WMP11 and re-installed...but all the above errors returned.
6. My Library files are skewed. Music is mixed with Video and with Documents and all around. Why? I dunno.
7. My music library is around 25GB; but it changes with the losses mentioned in #2 above.
8. I tried RealPlayer but their format leaves a lot to be desired by me. Also, it keeps requiring Flashplayer and no matter how many time I download it, it asks for it again.
9. I am 80 years old, not very computer savvy and I'm blessed with Parkinsons. Music is my hobby.

Hello,Few days ago I run Lenovo software update utility. There was an update available for the dolby audio driver and I applied it. Since then every time I reboot the computer the dolby audio application fails to start (it is in the start up). The message displayed is "The current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.14 and the software application expects driver version 7.2.7000.7. Please install a valid driver and software application combination." There is no available download for the application in the support section of Lenovo's website. This problem caused some applications to stop working (e.g. Spotify reports an error with the sound card and fails to play music).Please, advice. Thank you.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:T530: Dolby Audio: driver version and application version mismatch

Welcome to Lenovo Community! tpuser_00How about try rolling back to previous driver that works?Go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > double click Realtek >  click on Drivers tab > click on Roll Back Driver.

Answer:does ASUS P7P55D motherbored last Bios version (Version 2003) stable?

It's probably a good thing that you are scared.

A BIOS generally should not be updated unless you are having issues and have a strong reason to believe that a BIOS update will resolve those issues.

Is there a difference between the MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate and the Retail version that would cause the Virtual Server2005 R2 SP1 installation to fail on a PC upgraded from Home Premium (retail version) to Ultimate (MSDN subscription version)?

I have a Vista x64 Home Premium that came loaded with software from the manufacturer that I would lose if I were to overwrite it by a new installation from my MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate.

If I install Vista Ultimate as a brand new installation, Virtual Server installation works fine.

But if I install Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 after I upgraded Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate, I get the following error at the last phase of the installation: ?Windows Installer has stopped working? and then it sends to Microsoft the attached 3 files.

I even tried Windows Installer 4.5 but it did not work either:

If you already have the trial version of the Kaspersky product you want to buy, you can leave it installed and enter the licence key to activate it, simple as that. However, if you buy an edition different than the one you have in trial, then you'll need to uninstall the trial edition and install the edition you'll buy.

Firstly - Do you need to retain the Danish version? If not and you have the Win 7 install disk (UK version) Boot from that, format and do a FULL install. Then download and install the Service Packs bearing in mind that all software will have to be reinstalled.
If you want to Dual Boot then here are the instructions for doing so (then remove the Danish version at a later from the boot menu) enter link description here

When you install a trial version of an AVG security product on your Windows PC you may not feel convinced to buy premium model. However, you may like to continue the use of free version. This is only possible when you uninstall the trial version and download the copy of the free antivirus program thereafter. The AVG Downgrader application helps you complete this process with ease. The program converts trial versions of AVG products into AVG Free. You can download the application from AVG's website under tools and diagnostic utilities section. You will need to restart the system to finalize the downgrade to AVG Free Antivirus.

I want to reinstall XP.

I set the computer to boot to the CD drive.

Then I got an error message saying "No boot record found" (referring to the XP Home CD) in the CD drive, so the XP CD will not boot (I guess).

Then I rebooted by turning off the computer and turning the computer on via the switch taking me to the desktop.

I clicked on the CD drive icon so I could get access to the XP CD.

I clicked on the "reinstall XP" option but then I got the message saying I could not reinstall XP because the version on my hard drive is newer than the XP version on my XP-Home CD.

Hi

I joined the Insider Preview Program 4 months ago. I regularly updated all builds but since about 3 weeks, I do not receive any updates. I know that the last build is 10532 but I do not receive those updates. I contacted Microsoft this morning and they tell me that th1 10240 is a version for developers and that I am not supposed to have this version.

Since I installed Windows 10 Insider Preview over my Windows 8.1, what can I do to remain in the Program but moving up to version 10532?

I hope my question is clear (I'm French Canadian).

I installed a Japanese version of windows 10 but then bought an English version and installed that after finding all the menus could not be changed to English during the install.
My question is does the English version overwrite the JP version or are files left on the SSD using up space?
Also in the end I returned the English version cause I found you can add a language pack to the JP version. The problem with this is that if you get a blue screen the Windows messages are in Japanese. So now unless I can change this I'm going to go back to an English version of Windows 10.

I have heard that radeon 4670 is equivalent to geforce 9600GSO/8800GS.
But here in my country gfx cards are too expensive. Only the choice for me is to buy msi r4670-2d1g which is a 1gb version or Geforce GT240 512mb ddr3 so i want to know that is there any difference between 4670 1gb and GT240 512mb ddr3 , if there is, then which one is faster and by how much!!!

though 1gb has lower mem. clk. but does that make it slower than gt240 .The other available options are geforce 9800gt, radeon 4850, radeon 4890....etc. but these card need a bulky psu which my system lags.

so i am in need of an advice that which one is faster between these two:MSI radeon 4670 1gb or geforce gt240(which is 512mb ddr3)

BTW i have Samsung T220 22" monitor.

THnx in advance.
 

Answer:Is Radeon 4670 1GB version faster than 512MB version?

Microsoft still hasn?t released the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 Mobile users, but that doesn?t mean they?ve completely forgotten about their smartphone customers. Today, according to Windows Central, Microsoft has released an update to production Windows 10 Mobile users that pushes the non-Insiders version to Build 10586.545.

hello,

Bitdefender Free has the same protection technologies that its paid version? The efficiency of the free version is same as the paid version?
 

Answer:The efficiency of the free version of Bitdefender is the same as the paid version?

I don't see why it wouldn't be, yes it has less features and is less configurable,
But you get the same award winning engine that powers the paid version.

Hey-
My hard drive crashed a few weeks ago. Computer store said they couldn't recover anything off the hard drive. My neighbor is a computer guy and let me borrow an external device to "read" my hard drive. He suggested using FileRescue to recover the info on the crashed drive. FileRescue has a free trial version and a pay version. What's the difference? Should I just bite the bullet and pay for the full version? I'm really just interested in recovering some pictures and excel spreadsheets. Please advise...
Thanks
Ramona

Answer:Difference between free trial version and pay version of FileRescue

It depends on the extent of the hard drive failure. If the system does not recognise the drive you may not be able to recover anything at all.Typically, the trial version will show you what can be recovered but may not do so or with limited resultsTry Recuva its free and pretty good

My daughter's computer is not playing her games properly like it did when I first gave it to her.  The computer came with WinMe, I put upgrade version of XP Professional.  I am considering cleaning up some programs on the hard drive, just wondering if removing files from WinMe/98 would impact the operation of XP?  If so, is there a way to condense or compress them to save space, instead of just deleting them?Thanks

Answer:Upgrade version XP, need to delete all traces of previous version?

Without more info on how that machine is setup it would be guesswork at best...Are you saying that WinME is still installed on there along with XP ? ?Or are these older programs you re-installed after installing XP ? ?How much free space is on that hard drive ? ?

I'm new to this site, so I don't know how to ask properly here, but here goes:

I was having trouble with my Java version 13, it kept switching off and not behaving itself, so I decided to delete it and put in the newer version. Big mistake. I have CCleaner, and so I tried uninstalling Java from there, but Java was continuing to exist according to CCleaner. I also have JavaRa, (version 1.13) and I deleting any old versions, according to JavaRa. Java 6 version 14 is in my computer, but not installed yet, and when I try installing it the wizard tells me it was interrupted before it could be installed, and that the installation failed.
I have no idea what to do. Maybe my JavaRa is old? Can someone help?

Greetings Clubsters. I recently ran into a spot of bother upgrading from Nero 11 to 16. My original N11 was on my H drive (which failed) and so I thought I might install N16 on another drive (D. However, Nero will not install a new product without firstly uninstalling the previous version. I tried changing the drive letter, however this did not work. Apart from installing another drive H: and reinstalling N11 (which I really don't want to have to do) I can see no other way around this. I have tried several Registry Cleaners, however I'm not real impressed with any of those types of apps.
So, any suggestions (other than soak my sorrows and accept the inevitable?) Any help will be greeted with great enthusiasm.
Kindest Regards, WhiteBeard.

Answer:Nero will not install a new version without first uninstalling the previous version

I dont see any solution. Your Registry points to a Drive which does not exist. See if you can search for the keys manually and delete all that have "Nero" written in the keys. Thats the only thing I can think of.

after installing an application, a windows pop up appeared, saying "The program cant start because d3dx9_36.dll is missing from your computer. So, i looked at my DxDiag version, its DirectX11...So what do you think is the problem? i went to this site How to download and install DirectX, but i found a lot version of DirectX, that i don't know which one is compatible with mine so that i can be able to run the program. I've done reinstalling, and still it happens..

Additional info:
win7 64bit OS, sp1
currently running DirectX11

Please tell me which version should i download and how to install it, if it is hard, if it is as simple as this "download and install then run the app" then just tell me please if that's the case. This forum nver lets me down so im counting on you guys...

Answer:DxDiag Version Compatibility Issue, Which version should i download?

Welcome to Seven Forums mclarren. That dll is from DirectX 9 that dll should reside in both System32 and SysWOW64. The correct download if needed would be

Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from Official Microsoft Download Center

I can zip up both dll's, but if the download corrects the issue, no need. Let us know. A Guy

Hi folks

In the race to "simplify things" - newer versions always seem to get worse - and the new SKYPE for Windows is horrible -- why do new developers hate menus -- loads of us are still using "Old fashioned computers" with nice large screens rather than tiny mobile phones and menus are helpful.

Please developers don't simplify stuff TOO much so it becomes almost impossible to use !!!!! and don't abandon the idea of Menus. !!!! We don't always all work 100 % full screen - especially if large monitors and a few concurrent appls running.

I've re-installed the old version - skype for desktop (classic) which is still available

Much simpler to use -- all the features easily available from menu bar and just works

So I bought what I thought what the full version of Windows 7 Pro online for the student discount for $65. I got it all installed and the activation key wouldn't work.

Long story short I got the upgrade version on accident. So I got that refunded and I'm about to just go buy Home Premium. I need to install it. Do I need to uninstall Pro before I install Home Premium? Or will it just get rid of it for me when I install it?

Answer:Got the wrong version installed. Need to install correct version

No need to uninstall. The new installer will clear the disk.

I am using windows 7 64 bit and after reformattin my computer,i drag my files from my external hard disk into my laptop.the error stated make sure i am using 32 or 64 bit and i am using that.how do i solve this?

Answer:The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are runnin

Hi Haruki92,

What files are you trying to transfer? Regular files (documents, photos etc) should be fine to just drag over. However some applications are not able to run in a 64-bit environment.

Please post exactly what you're transferring and a screenshot if possible.

I went to staples today and I was asking one of the employees there about the Windows 7 Upgrade version and he said that he tried both the upgrade version and the full version and said that the full version was faster does anyone else have reports of this? I'd like to save the $60 if possible but i'd like my computer to be as fast as it can be, even if that means spending a little extra.

EDIT: title should be Windows 7, not Microsoft 7.

Answer:Microsoft 7 upgrade version is slower than full version?

Buy the upgrade version, but do a "clean" installation. See this tutorial http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1818-...-7-a.html?ltr=UI think someone was trying to get more money out of you.

Hello;

Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
"Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!

I just came to the realization that a computer of mine is 64bit even though it has been running the 32bit version of Windows 7.  This came about when some curiosity lead me to the manufacturer's website seeking to learn some specific details about the
computer.  Interestingly there is a statement which says something to the effect that this particular computer was not intended for use with the 32bit version of Windows.  This causes me to assume that it was sold with the 64bit version installed
which was changed after market.  I have no idea how this might have happened insofar as I obtained the computer from a friend who was discarding it.  This friend isn't someone who would know about such things.  I did reinstall the 32bit version
of Windows when I added an SSD drive but did this thinking it was a 32bit computer because it was running the 32bit version of Windows.
While the 32bit version is working fine, I am dependent on some software where support for 32bit has been abandoned.  I'd also like to add more memory and learned that while the computer can support up to 16GB it. apparently, won't use more than 4GB
when running the 32bit version of Windows.
I have quite a bit of work invested in building out the computer with the software I'm using and it would be nice if I didn't have to redo that to upgrade it to 64bit, which is what leads to my question.

According to the MSDN site :-When a 16-bit installer or application is launched, the following error message is displayed:
The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.I have an application (SPFPC V4.0) which I used to run with no problem on XP SP2.
But when I try it on my Vista Business 64 bit system I get that message. I have tried all of the compatibility options with no success.

Maybe I am being simplistic, but I would think that if it runs OK on XP SP2 then it probably isn't a 16 bit application.

Any ideas anyone.

Answer:the version of WindowsThe version of this file is not compatible with you're running

but I would think that if it runs OK on XP SP2 then it probably isn't a 16 bit application.



XP supports 16 bit applications, so there is no sound basis for your belief.

Hiya,

So I recently got a laptop that has this new Windows update and everything was fine because when I logged on my home screen was just like a normal computer, like a desktop, recycle bin, start menu, and then yesterday when i was typing, something changed and now when I log on, my home screen is the tiles, with the tiles for Photos, Internet etc, and i know there is a back arrow in the bottom left corner of the screen now but I thought pressing it might take me back to the desktop screen but it doesn't, also like opening up the internet, in this version the X close button isnt visible till you mouse over the corner. Im not too keen on this version and I'm not sure how to get back to the way it was before, is this an update? or have i just accidentally changed the settings whilst typing? Thanks!

Answer:Desktop version rather than App version home screen

Sounds like you switched to 'tablet mode'.
You can change it back by going to Notifications (far right of taskbar) and you should see it at the bottom.
