Use MS Internet Explorer. Windows Update is under Tools. You might also have that option in Start > All Programs > Microsoft Update at the very top of the start menu.

Try to uninstallur internel explorer. Go to control panel>add remove program and click add/remove windows component. Untick the internet explorer to remove. then download the internet explorer or you can do the same process uninstalling but this time tick the internet explorer box. I think it will search for your installation disc so prepare to insert it in your disc rom just in case.

I install Activated Windows 7 and I know that it ha no sound so I want to install the audio and sound of the computer, if you can help me please solve my problem. thanks


Hi,
Installing Audio driver in windows 7 should not be a problem. If windows is not able to install the drivers automatically, you can update the drivers using the internet. Here's how you do it.
Surely, windows 7 has detected your device and it should appear in device manager.
Go to Device Manager Check for the Audio Device (you will see this with an error) Right click on it and click on Update Driver then choose update driver automatically.
You should be connected to the internet when doing this as win7 will look for a compatible driver for your device. If this fails, you have to go to your PC or device manufacturer's website to look for a compatible driver.

In Explore context menu open with option has no submenu options


Submenu under openwith depends on types of extensions you are trying to do open with. For example, pdf file will have the extension Acrobat reader and internet explorer, because pdf file has been successfully opened with those programs previously.

First try to open the program using open with and next time it will show you the submenu to open with.

What is a second level menu that is accessed using a menu command?


Commands displayed in the start menu that have arrows on the right indicate that a submenu is available for a command. A submenu is a second-level menu.

Ex. "My Recent Documents" usually will have an arrow to the right of it. When you access your recent documents, you are actually accessing a submenu.

Missing and unrecoverable INTERNET OPTIONS in XP Windows 2000


If you still have the IE8 Beta 2 setup progrram on your system, run it and select the 'Repair installation' option if presented. If that's not there, you could try to reinstall over the existing installation, or you could go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features. Select Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 and uninstall it. Reboot the computer and check to see if your previous version of IE is working properly.

If that works and you still want IE8, download the latest version from the MS site and install, since Beta 2 is old. I am currently using RC1 but the RTM version may be available by now.

Let me know if this doesn't work and we can look at other options.
