Question about Computers & Internet

Can't Download Any Programs

We recently received a fairly new computer (Windows XP) that was used briefly in the corporate environment. When we go to download any software, either from CD/DVD or online, it ultimately prevents it from loading or opening. I'm sure the company placed some sort of firewall to prevent this. What can we do?

One of the easyest way to solve this problem is to reinstall windows XP. But I like doing things the hard way. inside your internet options you can access and set this function. if there is a security program on the computer find out the security code and delete the program. usually the company would distroy the partition on the computer. if not there mostlikely to have given you some confidentual files. YOU CAN ACCESS THE INTERNET OPTIONS IN THE CONTROL PANEL FROM THE START MENU. the normal settings should be : Internet Medium High
Local Intranet Medium Low
Trusted Sights Medium
Restricted sights High.


there is a button in the security column that will set things to default level

WINDOWS XP IS MESSED UP


Windows XP Security 2012 is a Virus and you will need to go to the following page which will guide you through the steps you need to take to remove it.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-xp-security-2012

The above page advises you to download a number of tools to use to remove this virus which you would be best advised to download on a different computer and then put them on either a USB memory stick or burn them on to a CD.

If you have difficulty in running these programs because the virus keeps preventing you, then download and burn on to CD a copy of Hiren's Boot CD and then boot your computer with the virus from that CD - start the Mini-XP environment on the Hiren's Boot CD and then run MalwareBytes AntiMalware from the CD and do a full system scan.
Note: Ignore any warnings that may be for the X: drive which is the Boot CD itself - you need to remove any malware found on your main Windows XP drive which is normally your C: drive

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

.
If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
3.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
1.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
2.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

I am starting to see we are sorry,but an internal error occured please reinstall the product to fix the problem. error-code:1/-3/10900 see doc#5305 And again the INCD helper service is not correctly...


That INCD service or component is a part of Nero. It gets installed with Nero. This was a common problem of Nero 7. What you can do is uninstall and re install the product. You have to use an uninstaller program available (such as your uninstaller) to remove the registry keys as well. Its clearly indicating that the programs is not successfully installed. Note: If you try to install Nero 9 in a Windows XP SP2 environment or in a Windows 7 environment you might receive the same error. Those are compatibility issues. You have to use SP3 in XP and you have to purchase Nero 10 for Windows 7. Incd is not necessary to function Nero. Try to install without Incd. You can do that while installing. Choose the Customized Installation. If you are using Nero 7, I recommend to use Nero 6 or 8 and upwards.
You can download Nero from their web site or using a torrent as well. Some funny things may happen when Nero gets installed partially. Go to Properties by Right Clicking the Taskbar and untick "Hide inactive icons" check box. Click on "Customize". Check the "Behavior property and for the programs which have the setting "Always Hide", select "Always Show" option. Then Apply and click on OK button.
Contact me further if you still have the problem. If the solution works for you please be kind enough to rate the answer as well :-)

I have a hard drive with windows 95 and i am trying to install windows xp professional addition but it comes back saying you can't intall this version of windows on this system


Windows 95 uses the FAT 32 system and uses a boot-up partition that will not recognize a windows xp default system install that uses the NTFS system. You can do it the other way around though, if XP is installed first, or another drive you have with XP on it is the first drive set to boot in your BIOS XP will recognize WIN 95 on its FAT 32 partition and either let you boot from that partition when you first start up your computer or when in XP right clicking a WIN 95 application and setting its properties to run as a Win 95 environment. Solution I would use if I were you would be to download Microsoft's free Virtual PC application from their website and run a full version of WIN 95 in its own virtual environment. Win 95 will run about 10 times faster than it ever would on its own partion if run under XP.
