what should i download to get 32bit operating system software


What is the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows?
The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information.

The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. How can I tell if my computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows?

To find out if your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, do the following:

1. Open System by clicking the Start button , right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.

2. Under System, you can view the system type.

If your computer is running Windows XP, do the following:

1. Click Start.

2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

If you don't see "x64 Edition" listed, then you're running the 32-bit version of Windows XP.

If "x64 Edition" is listed under System, you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP.

Take Off Write Protection on an SD Card
Secure Digital (SD) flash memory cards are a common storage format for mobile devices.
By default, they allow both reading from and writing to the card.
However, they can be set so you can only read from the cards and not write to them.
Some cards are created as read-only by default.
Other times, a faulty card reader may mistakenly read all cards as read-only.
In both cases, you can make simple changes to the card to disable the write protection.

1.
Orient the card so the label is facing up.
Slide the write protection tab, which is located on the left side of the card, to the unlocked position.
If there is no write protection tab, skip to Step 4.
2.
Test the card in your computer.
Insert the card in the SD slot and open the folder to view the files.
Try to save a file onto the card or right-click an existing file and select "Properties," then uncheck the box marked "Read-only."
3.
Remove the card and check to see the write tab is still set to "unlocked" if you get a message that says it is still write-protected.
If it has become locked again, slide it back and tape it in the unlocked position.
4.
Place a piece of masking tape over the notch in the SD card located on the right side of the card. Make sure the tape does not cover any of the card's metal contacts.
Test again as in Step 2.
5.
Cover the notch with a second layer of tape if the card is still giving you problems.

How do i turn on the system restore point since the box where it says " Turn off System Restore ( disabled by Group Policy) was checked and there's no way to uncheck it?


Right click on "My Computer" (XP) and scroll down to "Properties". System Restore should be right over the General tab and just un-check "Turn Off" and click Apply. Click here for a tutorial for Win 7 and Vista http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/330-system-protection-turn-off.html
