Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls type "EXIT" less the quotes then ENTER. Ths is assuming that what you have described is a DOS Shell running inside WinME. If on the otherhand the computer has booted to DOS (although most unlikely), pls type "WIN" less the quotes then ENTER

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Can I use alohabob to go from Windowsxp to Windows 10


You might be able to move specific applications or software from a Windows XP computer to a Windows 10 computer, using that software. But you cannot go from Windows XP to 10 on the same computer. The hardware of the Windows XP machine, unless you downgraded the OS from Windows 7 or 8 to XP, was NOT designed to work with a operating system higher than XP. You can only upgraded a Windows 7 or 8 computer to Windows 10 (not that you would want to as the Windows 10 system is useless junk).


One of the reason that Microsoft offered the Windows 10 free was that people using 7 would not ditch their old computers to buy a new one fitted with windows 10. However to get around the problem of not having new hardware. They had to fudge and bodge the Windows 10 software to make it work on hardware designed for Windows 7.
So basically it's rubbish because corners were cut.

If you backed up your old windows 7, 8 or 8.1 Before downloading Win 10 just run the back up find the versacheck file and import it. If there is no back up you have lost it. There is a provision to wind back to your old system in win 10 , you must do so with in a month , before the old files are deleted by windows 10.

How can I get my past history


Internet History on a Computer
Web browsers keep an internal record of the websites you visit.
This history also called a cache makes future access of websites easier because some of the data is already loaded in your computer.
Internet history is also useful to look through when you cannot remember the name of an important website you visited.
The creators of the big three Web browsers as of the time of publication Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome make viewing your browsing history simple.

Open an Internet Explorer window.
Press "Ctrl" and "H," or click the star to the left of the browser tabs and press "History."

Click on the day, week or month you wish to view. Internet Explorer will keep your Web history until you clear the cache.

Mozilla Firefox

Open Firefox.


Click the "History" drop-down menu.


Select "Show All History."


Locate the day, week or month of the Firefox history you wish to view.
The dialog box will show all history since you last cleared your "History" cache.

Google Chrome

Open a Google Chrome browser.


Click the wrench icon located on the toolbar.


Click "History."
Google Chrome will display all of the websites you have visited within the past 10 weeks. However, websites you viewed in "Incognito" mode or secure pages will not be displayed.

I have installed windows vista and when i try to install nero burning software 6 and nero media player message is displayed it is not compatible with this version of windows what should i do


General system requirements
  • Microsoft ® Windows 98/98SE; Windows 2000 (service pack 4 or later); Windows XP; Windows 2003 server
  • Microsoft® Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (All applications beside InCD and Nero ImageDrive work in the x86 emulator that allows 32-bit Windows applications to run)
  • Microsoft® Windows Internet Explorer 4.0 or later
  • LightScribe support is only available for Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4 or later) and Windows XP or Windows MCE 2004 or greater operating systems
Current version is 10. There are a lot of driver differences between XP & Vista. I'd buy the new version. You could try compatibility mode but I suspect it won't work.

Go here http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php and download the Malware Byttes Anti-Malware Trial Application. That removes all of those Fake Virus Alerts. Just make sure you delete all system restore points aswell when the malware is removed, as otherwise it will just creep back in on the system.
