Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

My windows xp software

Hiya Ginko, we spoke recently about how to download dvds!! After we spoke i found a site called Limewire.com and started downloading music to my PC, everything was great until this morning. I turnt oon my laptop and found a message from Microsft windoows (in the bottom right hand corner, aboove the icoons) stating that :-

"You may have been a victim of software coounterfeiting.

This copy of Window did not pass genuine Windows validation.

Ask for genuine microsooft software."


When i clicked onto it, it told me i would need too purchase windows Xp for 97 pounds, something i caannot afford. so i was wondering if there was any way round this, such as restoring setting oor prehaps downlooading it from a site now that my comp has gone wrong? and what exactly would be the name of the software i need to download becaus when i typed in windows Xp, lots came up, pls help i really need my comp working.
Thanks Ginko

If you find the message :

"You may have been a victim of software coounterfeiting.

This copy of Window did not pass genuine Windows validation.

Ask for genuine microsooft software."

That means that your system is counterfeit

If the system is counterfeit I cannot help you because of Fixya policies on piracy.

If it is not, I can tell you that you can get rid of the problem doing a system restore to a date before you started getting the message.

I ordered and paid for Limewire which I was unable to down load onto my computer. I would like to know if I can get a refund or what I can do to get the item I paid for, 8008600083 is the refrence number...


Limewire was closed down months ago. Call your credit card company,, immediately and ask for the fraud department. Also, run your virus scanner, if you attempted to connect to the limewire web-site. Then download this Malicious Software Removal Program from microsoft.com (it's free).
  1. If your Virus Scan Program is out dated, delete it from <Start>, <Control Panel>, Make sure Top Right Corner is set to Category (if Vista or Windows 7). In XP Add/Remove Programs.
  2. Then under programs Select Un-install a Program. Choose your expired Virus Scan Program.
  3. Then Download This: Microsoft Security Essentials (also free) and run in Full Scan Mode.

Thank You For Choosing FixYa~!

Where that i can find a softwere???


Legally = www.windows.com
Illegally = Search goodle for a bit torrent for whatever your needing to download, and download it. or use limewire and search + download.
www.limewire.com

i recomend just buying the software as it will be more reliable and stable but if you insist, you can get it illegally.
I hope this helps :)

Limewire wont connect


What firewalls you have, Look for yours here for instructions on how to configure it to allow both LW & Java full access: http://www.limewire.com/english/content/firewalls.shtml

Update your Java: http://www.limewire.com/english/cont...radejava.shtml

Delete the LW Preferences folder called .limewire (whilst LW is closed!) & found here: Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP: C:/Documents And Settings/your_username/.limewire OR for Windows 98 / ME: "C:\My Documents"

But keep keep in mind once you delete your LW Preferences folder you will need to reset all your LW option settings so you might want to make a note of them 1st.

Printer problem


I think I had a chat with you , here is trancription:

You are now in session with bazza1963
ginko says:
hi

ginko says:
are you there?

ginko says:
seems you need to re-install driver softwar for your printer, do you have printer disks? and which version of operative system are you using (Windows XP, Vista, etc)

ginko says:
I will try to find drivers for windows, give me some minute

ginko says:
Here is Driver download page for your printer, start downloading the one for for your system:

ginko says:
www.qms.com

ginko says:
Here is installation guide, same as the one provided with printer: ftp://ftp.minolta-qms.com/pub/cts/out_going/manuals/5430dl/ig54dl.pdf

ginko says:
ftp://ftp.minolta-qms.com/pub/cts/out_going/manuals/5430dl/ig54dl.pdf

ginko says:
download the above driver software.

ginko says:
is the same as the one distributed in disk coming with printer , if you have the disk you can use the disk

ginko says:
Once you downloaded software do the following:

ginko says:
1 disconnect printer from PC

ginko says:
2 expand and install downloaded software, alternatevely use the disk provided with the printer. Do this with printer disconnected.

ginko says:
3 when asked from installation, or after installation, connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable , not the network (ethernet) cable

ginko says:
4 the printer will be recognised in Windows, if it does not restart the PC

ginko says:
You must use an usb cable to use this printer as a local printer.

ginko says:
You may need a router to use the ethernet cable (one similar to thick phone cable) provided with the printer

ginko says:
therefore ensure you are using the right cable

ginko says:
here is an example of usb cable, sometimes it is not provided with the printer, have a look,. This is the right cable you need to use to connect this printer to local computer, the other one is for network www.amazon.co.uk-

ginko says:
check on www.amazon.co.uk how it looks like and ensure you are using the right one

ginko says:
let me know if you need further help, I am not receiving much feedback from you

ginko says:
Best regards

ginko says:
Also check under printers in vista that you have this printer installed and that it is the default print

I could not get any feedback from you , do not know if there was something wrong with chat software

regards
