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

IK Multimedia Production IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition Crossgrade/Upgrade (AT200UJHIN) won't play right on windows 7


Have you tried to use XP mode in Windows 7? In Windows 7 you can install XP mode and attempt to run the software from the virtualized environment. For the download for XP mode on Windows 7, go to this website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

Another thought that I have is that in Windows 7 - have you searched for an updated signed driver for your sound card? Depending on the model of computer you own - you can usually find the signed drivers at the manufacturers support website. Sometimes, changing the driver you are using for your sound card can also effect how your sound interfaces with different programs.

I hope this bit of information helps!

Unfortunately many programs did not upgrade their software when windows 7 came out. However, there is something called XP mode in windows 7 which emulates an XP environment. You can install it by following these instructions: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx. With it you'll be able to do anything you could in XP including access these files in question.

How to solve the problem"*.exe


This error is generally an indication that the written program isn't designed to be run in the 32 bit windows environment, the program is corrupted, or an error occured while trying to run the program. It is generally due to an older program being run within windows.

The newer windows versions are mostly 32 bit platforms. Some of the old programs from windows 95 and 98 eras won't work because they are 16 bit programs. Examples may include older programs with a .com extension (which will bring up this error message), or old versions of .exe's written for 16 bit environments.

If the program you are attempting to run is a recent program (came with your version of windows XP or later) then it could be an error at execution or the program is corrupted. If the program is written by a major brand and is relatively new, contact the program's technical support number for help.

If you suspect a program error, try and obtain another copy of the program. Uninstall the current copy of the program, restart your computer, then install a fresh copy. If the error continues after doing this, then contact the program manufacturer's technical support number.

If the program you are using is one of the programs from within windows, (from the system 32 folder for example, and include notepad.exe, msconfig.exe, or other programs that can be selected and run from within this folder) do NOT remove or copy over the program. Some of the programs within the windows sub-directories are older 16bit programs, not designed to run within the 32bit platform. It is recommended to NOT remove any of these programs from the windows sub directories.

Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


Hi,

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.

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.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

We have recently upgraded our Norton 360 - it


I wouldn't recommend installing McAfee as this can also slow down machines. Norton is notorious for this. Download AVG free Anti-Virus or Avast Anti-Virus & a firewall such as Zonealarm. Anti-spyware software is also a good idea. Spybot Search & Destroy & Adaware are good. If the computer is in a corporate environment you must purchase the software as the free licence only covers home use. Uninstall Norton when you have downloaded the programs & before you attempt to install the new programs.

How can i develope a new application environment?


For a beginning programmer, you should start with a programming language such as Visual Basic which lets you place controls onto a workspace and then program for each control. Most programs can be programmed in many languages, and the more powerful the programming language, the more complicated and longer it will take to learn. Microsoft programs are actually programmed in their own proprietary language, however the most popular these days would be the C programming language. There are a few variations of this including C++ and C# (pronounced "See Prime"). There are many resources for beginning programmers if you wish to learn on your own, or you can attend your local community college to learn programming a classroom setting.
