Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Vista Game Explorer does not open.

Hey,
I've got a problem with the Game Explorer in Vista. When I click the "Games" button in the start menu, an empty window opens, and after a second closes. That would be my game explorer. I don't know what causes the problem, because the only thing I did before experiencing the problem was to uninstall a few problems from my computer. I should notice that one of these programs was the IE8Beta2 English. I uninstalled it to install the hungarian version of it.
I've already tried some solutions, but none of it worked:
1. Reseting the Folder View options-did nothing
2. Re-register the gameux.dll-everything is the same
3. Using System restore. Irestored my computer to the state before the uninstallings.-did nothing too.

So what sould I do? I really don't want to reinstall my windows.
Thanks,
Gábor Szomabthelyi from Budapest

When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

Tip

Games Explorer link does not work in Windows 7 or Vista.


To open the Windows Vista games folder, you'd normally click on the Games Explorer link in the Start Menu.
You have to ensure that it appears there in the first place.
If it doesnt appear, Click Start > Rt Click > Properties > Start Menu tab > Customize > Select Games > Display as a link or Display as a menu > OK > Apply > OK
Incidentally, if you type Shell:Games in Vista's start menu search bar and hit enter, then too the games folder will open.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); But if the Games Explorer folder does not open in your Windows Vista, here is what you may try.
Type cmd in Vista's start menu. When cmd appears as a result, rt click on it and select Run as administrator.
In the elevated command prompt, type
regsvr32.exe gameux.dll and hit Enter. This will re-register the ganeux dll file.
It should help.

On facebook games ,i used to play any game i wanted but now only certain games load ,how do i fix this problem with such as farmville,ponzi inc


First, try to access your account in a different internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera) or different computer, if you can access the other games, then the problem could be the internet browser that you are using.

You need to try optimizing your internet browser. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer version 6
1. Open IE6 > Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click the Delete Cookies button and Delete History.
3. Click on OK > Close and re-open your IE6.
4. Try accessing your e-mail account.

* For Internet Explorer version 7
1. Open IE7 > Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click the "Delete" button under the Browsing History option.
3. Delete the Cookies, Internet Files
4. Click on OK > Close and re-open IE7
5. Try accessing your e-mail account.

* For Mozilla FireFox
1. Open Firefox > Tools
2. Select "Clear Recent History"
3. Select Cookies, Cache, Browsing and Download History.
4. Close and re-open Firefox
5. Access your e-mail

Good luck!

Hyplinks do not work in Outlook 2007. they used to work, not sure what made them stop


Fix 1: Start by Resetting Your Default Browser Most times, I can fix my Outlook hyperlink problem by resetting my default browser to Internet Explorer. I start with this step even if I plan to use Firefox as my browser. The reason I choose this path is I’ve had better success and it takes me closer to my end goal.
To make IE your default browser,
1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Click Tools from the menu
3. Select Internet Options.
4. Click the Programs tab
5. Click the button labeled Make Default.
6. Click OK.
7. Test a hyperlink in Outlook to see if the web page opens in Internet Explorer.
Fix 2: Reregister Windows DLL Files Even after resetting your default browser you still can’t open hyperlink in Outlook, it could be one or more registry keys is damaged. The solution is to reregister some of your DLL files. The process may sound intimidating, but it’s easy. There are 6 files to register based on your system. Some configurations use shdocvw.dll and others use shdoc401.dll.
To reregister the DLL files,
1. Close all open programs.
2. Click the Start button.
3. Select the Run… command. Vista users can type “run” in the Start Search textbox.
4. In the Open: textbox, type regsvr32 followed by a space and the file name.
In the screen snap below, I’ve used the first file Shdocvw.dll.
reregister-dll_300x154_23fc582bab296271059a0d070fdd0fcf.jpg
5. Click the OK button. You should see a message showing the process succeeded.
6. Click OK to dismiss the message.
7. Repeat the procedure for the other DLL files.
  • regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll (Some system use Shdoc401.dll instead)
  • regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
  • regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
  • regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
  • regsvr32 Urlmon.dll
  • regsvr32 Shell32.dll
8. As before, test to see if your Outlook hyperlink problem has been resolved.
Fix 3: Reset the (NONE) URL File Types If you’ve gotten to this part, I have to figure your Outlook hyperlinks are still broken. Don’t fret as I have another fix to try. My guess is someplace along the line your file associations broke. This is the mapping Windows uses to a file type to program. A common mapping might be .XLS files with Microsoft Excel. In this case, we need to check URL mappings.
To set URL file associations,
1. Open My Computer.
2. From the Tools menu, select Folder Options…
3. Click the File Types tab. A long list of Extensions and File Types appears.
4. Scroll down till you get to (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
dll-success.png
5. Click the Advanced button.
folder-options-dialog_300x365_dde956851a1c2536602f215467e0788c.jpg
6. Select the bold open item. *
7. Click Edit…
8. Click the Browse… button
9. Navigate to where Internet Explorer is located. (For most PC, it’s at C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe)
10. Add a space and %1 to the end of the file name. (e.g. "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" %1)
11. Click OK.
12. Click Close.
13. Repeat the process for (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy.
* If open doesn’t show, click New and type open in the action box.
Back to Firefox (Optional) Once you get the Outlook links to open in Internet Explorer, you can change your default browser to Firefox. This should roll down to Outlook so any embedded hyperlinks will open in the correct browser.
To set Firefox 3 as your default browser,
1. Open Firefox
2. Select Tools from the menu
3. Select Options…
4. Click Advanced
5. Click the Check Now button
6. Click Yes if the default browser is not set.
7. Click OK.

Vista is trick like that.
  1. Un-install it fully, then re-install it.
  2. But before you play it you have to right click on the shortcut and go to properties and click the button that tells it to run as if it is xp.
  3. Update the game, there should be a few of those.
Well and give yourself permission to play the game. Vista is bad at that.

You should be good. Let me know how it goes.
