Hi is there any way i can upgrade my windows xp to windows 7 for free


I am sorry. There is no legal way to do it for free.
  • The W7 is end-of-sale product. It is hard to buy.
  • It is security risk if you will install some cracked W7. Modified (cracked) unofficial installation sources include trojans or other malware very often.
  • A Windows 8 is good successor. My experience: The W8 is better than W7. Only some details (Start icon) are missing. I have modified the W8 setting, desktop etc. to be similar to W7 and I have become accustomed to W8. You need not use many strange W8 features if you do not like it. I ignore them all too: Loging-in by MS account, Microsoft Store, Bing search engine, Internet Explorer etc.
What do you prefer? A system for free or a Windows?
  • If you insist on Windows, you must pay.
  • If you need good system for free, use a Linux. The Ubuntu is very good option. It is working on all my PC's for years. I install it every time either as a sole system or as a second one. This my answer is written by Firefox running on Ubuntu Linux e.g.
You can follow the links, read about Ubuntu and try it without installation for first time. Requested contributing is not mandatory. Fill $0 or go directly to link: Not now, take me to the download

Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu


This is a guide to help you install Google Chrome on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, there are other ways, but this is the one that works for me, hope it will help you.

Ready to give it a shoot?

Step 1 - Update WINE
In order for the Chrome installation on Ubuntu to be successful you have to update your WINE version to 1.1.4.
Type (or copy) this in to your command line -
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
sudo apt-get update


Step 2 – Get all necessary software

Winetricks is a script that will allow you to get all the necessary software you need for this installation.
The last command below will install Firefox into WINE, this is needed for the third step.

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
mv winetricks /usr/sbin/
winetricks riched20 riched30 flash msxml3 corefonts firefox

Install Firefox into WINE.


Step 3 - Installing Chrome

Once you have installed Firefox into WINE, launch Firefox in WINE and go to - http://www.google.com/chrome/
Download and run Chrome setup.


Step 4 – Launch Google Chrome

Once the download and install are complete, type this command to launch Chrome -

wine “$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/$USER/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe” –no-sandbox –new-http

Hope this worked for you and you can use Google Chrome off of you Ubuntu system.

Flash player plugin not recognized under Mandriva


1. Download the plugin to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file. Download link >

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Utilities/Adobe-Flash-Player-for-Linux-18853.shtml

2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Quit your browser.
4. Remove all existing Adobe Flash Player installations from the system.
5. Unpackage the file. A directory with contains libflashplayer.so will be created.
6. Copy libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins. Create the 'plugins' folder if it does not exist yet.
7. Launch your brower. To verify installation in Firefox choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.

Hope this solves your problem, please let me know as I was also an ex-windows user and the switch over requires allot of new learning for the linux environment.

Since update I can not access add/remove, downloads, Firefox, or help on ubuntu OS.


I have never heard of this til now. It might be a stuck package? You can try booting into recovery mode by hitting the esc key at boot time and selecting the top line that ends in "recovery mode" then af the next menu select "fix broken packages". Did you have Firefox 2 and 3 installed or just one of them? Is Firefox running in gnome system monitor after you start it and maybe just not showing the window? The only other thing I can think of to try would be to make a new user and log into that user and try it.
