Using your toolbar preferences you can move them back to the bottom and then click the lock taskbar option to prevent this from happening again. You can access this by right mouse clicking on the taskbar then select properties. Hope this helps.

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

It could be that the screen is at the correct resolution, but the icons are just set to display larger (Vista allows this). Right-click on the desktop (NOT over any icons), and select "View". there you can select the size of the desktop icons.

Why does my icon have a shield in front of it and how do i take it off


In Windows Vista, all icons that have the shield mean that you need to have administrative rights to open that program.

To remove the icon,
  1. Launch MSCONFIG from the Run menu("Start" button + "R"

  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
disable_uac_1_small.gif
  1. Press the Launch button.
  2. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  3. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.

When I try to open a pdf file, the icon is different and does not open in Adobe, but in MS Word 2007, which of course is does not open properly. This computer (Gateway M6752 laptop)has Vista Home Premium,...


Hey mrbickham,

In some instances, updating existing software or installing new programs onto your computer can cause issues such as what you have encountered. Fortunately, re-associating .PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Reader instead of MS Word 2007 may be all that you need to do. Most versions of Windows allow users to select the program they want to use to open any given file type, and can usually be done by following the steps I’ve provided below.

1) Right-click on the .PDF file icon.

2) Choose "Open With" from the menu that appears.

3) When you highlight the “Open With” option a submenu should appear. Click on the link in this menu that says “Choose Program.”

4) Another window should then open, providing a list of the available programs on your computer. Choose Adobe Acrobat Reader from the menu and check the box next to it.

5) At the bottom of the page there should also be an option that says something similar to "Always use this program to open this file type." Make sure that this option is enabled.

6) Click "OK."

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.

HELP!


what do you mean the windows vista goes away? are you talking about the os or just the vista icon?
When you boot up the pc press F8 before or while it's in post or startup then select Last Known Good Configuration.
if any program or hardware software was installed recently before the problem started select Safe Mode with Networking then uninstall the program recently installed.

500XL will not shutdown properly!


Firstly you need to get into the bios by pressing f2 or Del on start up and when in the bios look in the advanced menu for ACPI and meke sure that it is enabled, this allows the motherboard to recognise the auto shutdown through windows, then save settings and exit for a re boot. Next click start>control panel>power options and check in the power schemes and other tabs, to make sure that the settings are correct for shutting the system down.
