Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

2 Answers

When I try to download something from a website, all of my windows close before I can accept the download

I have had this problem since I was forced to upgrade to Window's Vista, and basically, whenever I try to close one window, all of the windows close, and when I try to download a driver, or an upgrade from a website, the Pop up window to accept the download pops up, and before I can accept it, all of the windows close.

    Hi diffbrook,



    I would like clarify the issue you are having. Are you referring to a multiple opened windows application? or just an internet explorer window with multiple tabs.



    If you are reffering to a multiple opened windows in which you encountered an issue when closing one of this application. This issue could relate to a virus, malware or spyware. You may try downloading some anti spyware or anti malware to check if that resolves the problem. You may also scan your system for viruses using your antivirus.



    Let me know if you need those application.



    Thanks

Hi diffbrook,

I would like clarify the issue you are having. Are you referring to a multiple opened windows application? or just an internet explorer window with multiple tabs.

If you are reffering to a multiple opened windows in which you encountered an issue when closing one of this application. This issue could relate to a virus, malware or spyware. You may try downloading some anti spyware or anti malware to check if that resolves the problem. You may also scan your system for viruses using your antivirus.

In addition to that you may also use the following steps below.

1. insert windows vista disc
2. Click on the start button on the screen
3. Go to "start search" above the start button on the screen
4. Type the command cmd
5. A command prompt screen will show up then type this command on the blinking cursor.

sfc /scannow

After the the scan test repair. Restart the system. Keep me posted.


Thanks

    In case the repair won't work and the antivirus and antimalware can't find any virus issue. Try creating a different user account. If you can't find a problem in the new account you created then it is an issue with the account you are using.

The computer or an application? If it is an application, you should run an antivirus scan. Also, make sure you have updated Windows and your drivers by running Windows Update and going to Asus' website to download drivers. You may need to wipe the disk and reinstall Windows, if nothing else works. If all else fails, contact Asus customer service as you may have a faulty piece of hardware in your computer.

I got a Notebook Acer Aspire 5000, I downloaded the drivers of the acer's webpage but Windows XP doesn't accept the drivers of the wireless. please help


If those drivers are unacceptable, go to device manager and look at the adapters. Write down thier manufacturer and try going to their website for their latest drivers for your particular operating system. If that doesn't work, you can try to uninstall the device from the system and reboot, this will force windows to install the device and load drivers for it. Reboot afterwards.
