I looking for window 7 64 bit window installer updater


try control panel - uninstall programs. there is an option to show updates. click on this and then remove the most recent update and try updating again. Suspect last update may be corrupt by removing it it will then re-download and install hopefully a not corrupted update. also check services in control panel an see if there is an update service and stop it and then restart it .

Blueant s4 stuck in DFU mode, does nothing, hung up while in the middle of upgrade firmware from 1.5 t 1.6 need the software to re flash it


I know this link is old but the same problem happened today to my new device a s4
I tried to update the device and the update program stopped halfway through.I tried this several times and each
time after the program stopped dead halfway through I pressed the cancel button and followed onscreen prompts,
I then noticed that the device would not respond and was just a dead piece of kit.It seems that it was still in
DFU mode(update mode)and needed the software to install an update to get it to work again.
It seems that the problem could be how the device reacts to the type of motherboard I have on my PC.BluAnt mention
issues with ASUS boards on their site wioth another device.
at the office. So after dozens of tries to get the s4 to update using the downloaded updater from Blueant,
I went into Windows Explorer and found the directory 'BluAnt Universal Updater' I copied the directory to my
memory stick and then took it home. On my PC at home I copied over the BAUU directory. Downloaded and ran the updater program
....and.....it installed the update within a couple of minutes. It seems that the update program downloads the update to a
directory within the BAUU directory and also places a 'Backup' directory there from your device, so if a problem occurs you can
tell the updater program to update from a file on your hard drive.Please pass this 'fix' on.

Getplus (r) error and unable to load GUI


That getPLUS error is from the updater that came with an adobe software. try uninstalling it if you find it in Add/Remove Programs and then in mozilla, uninstall or disable any plug-in named getPlus. then don't download getPLUS software anymore.

also, download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

The os windows vista (TM),Build 6000.the copy is not genuine


Hi

If it's saying that then am afraid its correct.
Windows has a program that can check the authenticity of its OS. But downt worry it wont harm your system. You might have accidently installed Windows genuine check program(while updating).
The only solution to stop receiving this message is to roll backthe installation.
You can do this by restoring your PC to an earlier date.

If you know how to restore and what will be its consequences then its ok and go for it but if you dont then please revert back, so I can tell you the steps to follow.

My notebook has become dumb!


Hey,
It seems like you are missing some audio drivers (and perhaps a few more).
You can download audio and any other Windows XP drivers for the COMPAQ Presario c500 from the following website.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=ca&product=3413016&lang=en

Failing that, try and do a Windows Update (go to the Start menu > All Programs > Windows/Microsoft Update). Windows Update should detect that you are missing some drivers, then download and install them for you. You may have to do a "Custom" not and "Express" update and select the updates from the Hardware tab on the side bar.

All the best,
Jaxon
