Question about HP PC Desktops

1 Answer

I had an attack of Spyware in Norway. Norway got me back in action but I am trying to download Vista SP1 and it keeps falling over. Microsoft Tech support are about to have me reinstall. They claim I cannot reinstall Vista from the Hard Drive. I run a Pavillion dv 6521TX. I believe I can. I have copied my User directory to a separate HDD. Can I now go aead and do a full restore and how do I go about starting the RECOVERY program. Thank you, Oliver Inglis, Tasmania.

If you can, download and install a anti-spyware program and clean it up. Use Ccleaner first then get Super Anti Spyware, it does a decent job. try that.

You could try to download the "Service Pack for IT Professionals" - as this is the full package, and doesn't require Windows Update. You need to install SP1 before SP2.

Sound is not comming when i change window XP from window vista


Your PC requires a more recent soundcard device driver that is compatible with Windows Vista.

You can download the required driver here-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html#driver


Please be aware that there is a different driver for Microsoft vista sp1 and above as opposed to Microsoft Vista. SP means service Pack which is a combination of updates supplied by Microsoft to make your operating system more reliable, secure etc.

If you do not know whether you have SP 1 installed, click on the start menu, right click on the computer and click on properties. Your Windows operating system is now described in the top of the window. It will say something like Microsoft Vista or Microsoft Vista SP1.

Read thru this Microsoft help page on enabling/disabling autorun. If you need additional help or if their info is hard to decypher just give a shout.

The tech may have been accurate in his assessment, some spyware/malware can wreak serious havoc on both the registry and the system files of a Windows machine.

A great app for doing quick and accurate cleaning of malware is Malware Bytes, it's worth the download just in case you ever need it...
