Computer becomes unresponsive

I have Vista, 32 bit. For a year, it worked fine. Now, after I renewed my supscritption and updated the program, it locks my computer up and it becomes totally unresponsive. I have to manually shut it down to unlock it. Any ideas?

    First, I re-stalled Vista.Then, I updated my anti-virus (Trend) and scaned my computer. After that, I disabled all startup programs. I have been installing things one at a time. Everything was fine until I re-installed Spysweeper. Then, the same lock up problems recurred.

Due to some virus/spyware attack some of the system files might have got corrupted which are needed for the successful operation ...

even though some people will say that the virus will not infect to vista .. but infact the common small viruses will not infect normally but the spyware/malwares will attack and some other virus which are not little they will attack to vista ..

so i suggest to install some good update antivirus and scan your system and fix all of them ...

after fixing if you still persist the same problem then you must reintall the vista this will solve your problem ..

if your computer is totally unresponsive then go to the "safe mode"(by press F8 key at the system startup) then scan your system and if needed reinstall it ...

thank you
any queries you can contact me

Free download windows xp


The program was written in 1995. It was developed with max capability of 32 bit. The system fails at 64 bit. I wrote the update which made it compatible with XP, Vista and Win 7... 32 bit. I am considering trying to update the program to 64 bit but I'm not sure if the effort will be worth the time to achieve a working copy. In the long run it may shrink to its core functions which are the nice checkbook features. If you have an old 32 bit system around that will keep this great program functioning for a while.

Start windows defender definitions


Updates for Windows Defender are usually included in regularly scheduled Windows updates. However, you can manually download and install the updates yourself.
Updates may be available in several places online, but only download those from Microsoft's official website.
Files from other sources may in fact be viruses or other malware disguised as legitimate update files.

Log into your Windows Vista computer as an administrator.
You will need administrator rights to install the update files.
Check whether you are running the 32- or 64-bit version of Windows Vista by clicking on the "Start" menu, then typing "system" in the search box and clicking "system" in the programs list.
For the "System type" entry you will see either "32-bit operating system" or "64-bit operating system".

Download the update definition files from Microsoft's website.
There are different versions of the files for the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, so be sure to download the correct version for your computer by simply clicking the appropriate link (see Links below), which will start the download automatically.
32 bit
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=70631
64 bit
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=70632
Click "Run" when the download has completed to immediately begin installation.
Follow the prompts on your screen to complete the installation, and restart your computer if necessary.
A restart is not usually required immediately, but is usually required in order for installation to be fully completed, so restart as soon as possible.

I have an other brain teaser! bought a laptop (sony vaio) it had vista on 32bit.i upgraded to win.7 ultimate. 32bit. could it be maybe it is a 64 bit base? nota geniouse but could this be why my bat


Beginning with the release of Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit operating systems are slowly becoming extremely prevalent in today's market. 64-bit operating systems are poised to eventually replace 32-bit operating systems entirely. At the present however, 32-bit applications still vastly outnumber 64-bit applications. Luckily, 64-bit operating systems are capable of running 32-bit operating systems. In 64-bit operating systems, 32-bit applications are installed to a second program files folder, named "Program Files (x86)." Programs installed in the x86 folder can be initialized just like programs installed in the regular Program Files folder.

Open the 32-bit programs folder. Go to Start > Computer > Local Disk (C:), then click on "Program Files (x86)." Open the desired program folder. The executable file for the program will be located inside the folder. Double-click on the file with the ".exe" file extension. As an example, for the QuickTime program you would double-click on the "QuickTimePlayer.exe" file. You have now successfully run a 32-bit application in your 64-bit operating system. Hope this helps.

I need to have my lexmark printer serisx1150 soft ware updated from windows xp to windows vista


Hello. Before installing the driver for Vista, you need to uninstall the XP driver first by going to Start Menu > All Programs/ Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Uninstall. Restart the computer. Also, check if your computer is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to Start Menu > right click on Computer > Properties. You can download the Vista driver on this link: http://bit.ly/bmvu8D . Click on the Microsoft dropdown found below the page. Choose Windows Vista for 32-bit or Windows Vista x64 for 64-bit. Download and install the software. Hope this helps.

No audio outout device is installed


Did your vista install correctly? Is your computer got a 32 bit hard drive? This can happen if your computer worked fine before you changed to vista. or if it did not install properly or you put in a 32 bit for a 64 bit or vise versa. Check these out first. If computer worked before update this is most likely the problem or you may not have enough ram or hard drive memory for vista. Let me know i'll try to help you thru this.

32 bit IE won't connect to internet in Vista 64 bit.


32 bit programs, last I checked, won't work in a 64 bit operating system, just as 64 bit won't work in 32 bit operating systems.

If 32 bit programs will work in a 64 bit OS, they probably won't work properly.

IE 32-bit browser need to run on my 64-bit browser


Hi buddy323,

You will find the 32 bit browser on your Vista installation disk. Or your restore CD from Dell.

If you can't find it there, you can download it HERE. Or may want to go for the IE version 8.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

ATI Radeon X1300 wont work with my Vista 32 bit


Try this.

Download the unified Radeon drivers from ATI's website... do not use Windows update. Get the Drivers Only package. for Vista 32-bit

If you can get to the desktop:
Uninstall the existing display drivers by using the remove hardware utility. Whatever they are... remove them. Reboot. Windows will try to reinstall the drivers on the next boot. If it allows you cancel the installation at any time during install do it. Run the downloaded package from ATI. Reboot.

If you can't get to the desktop:
Press F8 when booting and enter safe mode with networking. Download the ATI drivers from ati.com for Vista 32-bit.
Uninstall the display drivers. Reboot. Should take you to the desktop on the next boot so you can run the install program.
