Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Running windows xp media center edition and when displaying "All Programs" the programs are listed in order of installation, as expected. However, when right clicking on the "All Programs" menu, the pop-up menu that should appear flashes very briefly and then disappears, thus "Sorting by Name" is not available. Suggestions.

    I found the solution by right clicking the task bar, select "Properties", click the "Start Menu" tab, click the "Customize" button, select the "Advanced" tab and finally check the "Enable dragging and dropping" option. Although I do not remember unchecking this option in my system, it was. Selecting this option will enable the "All Programs" right click pop-up menu.



    I may try the Style XP suggestion. It sounds interesting. Thanks.

Windows media player won't work


Which operating system ? Which version of Media player ?
Though designed with Windows 7 in mind, Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11) is fully compatible with Windows XP.

The trick is knowing which version of WMP 11 to download.
Different versions of the software exist not only for Windows 7, Vista, and XP, but also for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP.

Additionally, WMP 11 is only compatible with XP if it is using Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3. Before downloading the appropriate installation file, you will need to verify which version your system requires.

Open the "Start" menu.
Open "My Computer."

Click "Help", then select "About Windows."
This will display a window with system information.

Find the listing that specifies your Service Pack. If you are operating without Service Pack 2 or 3, you will need to install one (see Resources).


Open the "Start" menu and click "Run." Within the text field, type "winmsd.exe."

Click "OK." Select "System Summary."
Find the heading labeled "Item."

Under this heading should be the word "Processor."
The value associated with "Processor" will determine which version of Windows XP you are running.

If the value begins with "x86," you are running a 32-bit version.
If it begins with "ia64" or "AMD64," then you are running a 64-bit version.

Download the Windows Media Player installation file that matches your version of Windows (see Below).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

Open the file once it has finished downloading.
This will launch the installation wizard.

Follow the onscreen instructions to install WMP 11.
The program should now run normally.
How to Fix Windows Media Center

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.
With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.

It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.

From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.

Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display.

The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.
Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.

Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.
Select "Music library."

If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.

If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.

Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.
Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.

If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.
You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.

Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.
You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.

Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."
Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall."

Click to check "Media Center Extenders."
Click on "Apply."

Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.

You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.
Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."

Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup."
Click on "Set Up Your Speakers."

Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.

Registry Hacking


<b><u>Display legal notice on startup</u></b>:<br />Wanna tell your friends about the do's and dont's in your computer when they login in your absence. Well you can do it pretty easily by displaying a legal notice at system start up.<br />REGEDIT<br />[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]<br />"legalnoticecaption"="enter your notice caption"<br />"legalnoticetext"="enter your legal notice text"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Automatic Administrator Login:</b></u><br />Well here's the trick which you can use to prove that Windows XP is not at all secure as multi-user operating system. Hacking the system registry from any account having access to system registry puts you in to the administrator account. <br />REGEDIT 4<br />[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]<br />"AutoAdminLogon"="1"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>No Shutdown:</b></u><br />Wanna play with your friends by removing the shutdown option from start menu in their computer.<br />Just hack it down !!!<br />Regedit<br />HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer<br />"NoClose"="DWORD:1"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Menu Delays:</b></u><br /> Another minor and easy tweak to remove any delay from menus sliding out. For this you will need to use regedit (open regedit by going to Start -&gt; Run..., then typing 'regedit' and pressing enter). The key you need to change is located in HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. The actual key is called MenuShowDelay - all you have to do is change the value to 0. Remember, you will have to re-boot your computer for this tweak to take effect.<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>GPEDIT.MSC And Autoplay</b></u><br /> A great tweaking file that comes with XP is gpedit.msc. Go to Start -&gt; Run... and then type in 'gpedit.msc' and press enter. This is effectively the Policies Editor, and it comes in handy often. For example, if you hate CD autoplay like I do and want to permanently disable it, you can use this tool to do so. Just run gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration -&gt; Administrative Templates -&gt; System. In here you can see the value 'Turn Off Autoplay'. Right-click on it and then click 'Properties'.<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Increasing options in add/remove programs: </b></u><br /> Not a fan of MSN Messenger? don't want Windows Media Player on your system? Fair enough, but if you go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, by default none of Windows XP's 'built in' programs are visible. it's fairly easy to change, though... just open the file X:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf (where X: is the drive letter where Windows XP is installed) in Notepad. You should see a section of the file something like this: <br /> [Components]<br />NtComponents=ntoc.dll,NtOcSetupProc,,4<br />WBEM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,wbemoc.inf,hide,7<br />Display=desk.cpl,DisplayOcSetupProc,,7<br />Fax=fxsocm.dll,FaxOcmSetupProc,fxsocm.inf,,7<br />NetOC=netoc.dll,NetOcSetupProc,netoc.inf,,7<br />iis=iis.dll,OcEntry,iis.inf,,7<br />com=comsetup.dll,OcEntry,comnt5.inf,hide,7<br />dtc=msdtcstp.dll,OcEntry,dtcnt5.inf,hide,7<br />IndexSrv_System = setupqry.dll,IndexSrv,setupqry.inf,,7<br />TerminalServer=TsOc.dll, HydraOc, TsOc.inf,hide,2<br />msmq=msmqocm.dll,MsmqOcm,msmqocm.inf,,6<br />ims=imsinsnt.dll,OcEntry,ims.inf,,7<br />fp_extensions=fp40ext.dll,FrontPage4Extensions,fp40ext.inf,,7<br />AutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,au.inf,hide,7<br />msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7<br />RootAutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,rootau.inf,,7<br />IEAccess=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,ieaccess.inf,,7<br /> This is a list of all components installed at the moment. I've taken the example of MSN Messenger - the program entry called 'msmsgs', third-last line. You can see the word 'hide' highlighted - this is the string which tells Windows not to display the component in the Add/Remove Programs list. Fix this up by simply deleting the word 'hide' like so:<br /> msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7<br /> To this:<br /> msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7<br /> Now, after restarting, you should be able to see MSN Messenger in the Add/Remove Programs list. If you want to be able to quickly view and remove all components, simply open the sysoc.inf file and do a global find and replace for the word ",hide" and replace it with a single comma ",". <br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Automatically Kill Programs At Shutdown:</b></u><br /> don't you hate it when, while trying to shut down, you get message boxes telling you that a program is still running? Making it so that Windows automatically kills applications running is a snap. Simply navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop directory in the Registry, then alter the key AutoEndTasks to the value 1. <br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Speeding Up Share Viewing:</b></u><br /> This is a great tweak. Before I found it, I was always smashing my head against the table waiting to view shares on other computers. Basically, when you connect to another computer with Windows XP, it checks for any Scheduled tasks on that computer - a fairly useless task, but one that can add up to 30 seconds of waiting on the other end - not good! Fortunately, it's fairly easy to disable this process. First, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace in the Registry. Below that, there should be a key called {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}. Just delete this, and after a restart, Windows will no longer check for scheduled tasks - mucho performance improvement!<br /> <b><u><br /></u></b><br /><b><u>Create a Shortcut to Lock Your Computer</u> </b><br /> Leaving your computer in a hurry but you don't want to log off? You can double-click a shortcut on your desktop to quickly lock the keyboard and display without using CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screen saver. To create a shortcut on your desktop to lock your computer: Right-click the desktop. Point to New, and then click Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard opens. In the text box, type the following: rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation Click Next. Enter a name for the shortcut. You can call it "Lock Workstation" or choose any name you like. Click Finish. You can also change the shortcut's icon (my personal favorite is the padlock icon in shell32.dll). To change the icon: Right click the shortcut and then select Properties. Click the Shortcut tab, and then click the Change Icon button. In the Look for icons in this file text box, type: Shell32.dll. Click OK. Select one of the icons from the list and then click OK You could also give it a shortcut keystroke such CTRL+ALT+L. This would save you only one keystroke from the normal command, but it could be more convenient.<br /><br /><span>Note: Before you can change any registry take backup.</span><br />

Sony VAIO VGC-RB38G PC Desktop needs the media center re-installed


I would seriously doubt that your kids know how to remove Media Center. Maybe they just removed the icon from the desktop. Click Start/My Computer and open the Local Disk C. Look for the Programs File Folder. If you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista there might be two Program File folders (Program Files and Program Files (x86). Look thru the program files folders for the Windows Media Player Folder or Windows Media Center Folder. Open the folder and look for the Media Player. When you see the Icon you can Right Click on it and select Properties. If the Type of File in the properties windows says Application, that is probably the program that runs. You can close the properties window and double click on the icon and see if it runs.

If it runs, you can close it and go back into the folder and Right Click on the icon and select the option Sent To then select Desktop (create Short Cut). Right Click on it again and select option to Pin To Start Menu.

If you just want to download and install it again.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Download Media Player" or "Download Media Center" (without the quotes). Select a site from Microsoft that will download and install it.

Is there any driver, program or software fix that will allow me to load my "Intel Create & Share Software on my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 530?


The Intel Create & Share was written for Windows 2K and XP and not updated. The workaround is to use a computer (second machine, dual boot or virtual) with XP installed.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or update to one of those versions, you may be able to run a virtual XP computer for free. Download from Microsoft and install in order the Virtual PC program and the XP mode software. Install the Intel Create & Share program in XP mode as if it is your only OS. (Note: you can't have hardware installed on the virtual and real computer at the same time. To share files you will need to save them to external media (USB or optical disc).)

Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. For the other options, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:

and you probably have to go for option:

Dear Sirs I have just insalled the SimpleCenter media but I do not want the icon to automatically load onto the task bar on the right hand side,although I would like the shortcut to remain. I can delete...


Hello,

You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

Regards,
