Unfortunately XP Pro doesn't have a fully functional Run As command. If you try and make a request for certain system functions it will always authenticate as the current explorer user. The solution is rather odd and cumbersome. Say I was logged into Arthur but wanted to run control panel as Keech then I would follow the directions below.
1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\ and Run As cmd.exe as Keech 2. Open Task Manager and kill the process explorer.exe 3. In your command window type C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe and press enter 4. Open control panel normally
5. All done!

My acer laptop wont let me use the acer orbicam


If you have any application that uses the webcam (such as Skype) run it. You will have access to the camera. If you have face recognition software run it. It will turn on the camera.
But more importantly look in the Start>All Program>Acer menu for a webcam application. Do read the user's manual to find out what the name of the web cam application is.

Hi, I for some reason can't run my Youtube with out it stopping and buffering for long periods at time. Its weird because its just started to do this? Is there a way to fix?


The reason you Youtube is Video application are mostly real time, what I mean by this is that the video and audio must syncronise for you to have a meaningful video.
Your internet bandwidth may not be large to support downloading streaming meadia. For vedio to play properly, it will download the vedio first to yoour system before playing the video. the time it takes to download the much your bandwith can accommodaite at a time is the time the system is buffering. If you have a good bandwidth, the video will play without you noticing it playing from the internet.

Lenova computer running Vista crashes most applications. Two examples: Family Tree Maker: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: FTM.exe Application Version: 18.0.0.86 Application...


Weird category.  Seems OS- or program-specific enough.

The exception codes are supposed to give you insight into what's going on, (Intel exceptions C000 00029 and E043 4F4D in the context of Vista or your CPU in particular, say) but perhaps you should try the Vista equivalent of WinXP's RunAs options, where you can run them as older applications and dodge some incompatibilities.

Similarly, you might want to create a VM (or runtime jail; many, many options to be had there...) and try it in that context, so that if the program's spoiling things at least your system won't need to worry or crash.  The easiest thing of course is to find updates of those programs that promise to play well with Vista.

I am using VISTA and the application shuts down when I try to use


Vista doesn't support all applications fully yet.. The only thing i can advice you to do is installing all the programs you want to install as Administrator.. Like so:

And if the programs still after installation doesn't work properly you can try to run them in Windows XP SP2 compability mode, like so: 4fc2f68.gif

NEW COMPAQ PRESARIO CQ70 HANGS


Two things you need to do. Next time it hangs do a ctr-alt-delete and end program. This will end it properly so it does not become corrupt. Next (you can do this now) go into Control Panel and click on Administrative Tools. Click on Event Viewer and Applications. You will see a list of applications, scroll down the list and see if you can find when your notebook had an error the last time. Right click on the Notebook and click on Details. It will give you a reason it is hanging up. You can go to the Microsoft Website and type that code in and on the Knowledge Base it will tell you a fix.
