Freedownloads how to get your downloads to flashdrive so i may install to desktop that is not on line with xp servicepro 2


Assuming you already have a flashdrive plugged into the computer with an internet connection, go download a program you want, such as Google Chrome. When it says "Save" or "Run", choose save and save it to your desktop. Once the download is complete, and before installing the program onto the current computer, open the start menu and go to my computer. Plug in your flash drive and it should appear in the My Computer window. Open your flash drive and move the window such that your file on your desktop is visible. Now click and drag the file on your desktop to the flash drive. Once the transfer is complete, remove your flash drive and insert it into the computer that does not have an internet access. Then go to my computer, and locate the flash drive and open it. Move the window such that the desktop in in sight. Click and drag the file from the flash drive to your desktop. Then remove the flash drive and install the program.
Hope this helped, Nathan Taylor

I am running windows XP I have several software apps that have inserted themselves into the "start-up script" that causes my computer to take forever to boot up. what can i do to execute these...


Click Start
Click All Programs
Point at the "Startup" folder
Right-mouse click on the icon for one of the items.
Click Delete to delete this "short-cut".
Or, "drag-and-drop" the short-cut out of the Startup folder.

Or, purchase more RAM for your computer, to make the start-up go much faster!

Or, uninstall the program, and the short-cut to that program will be removed.

You can't boot Windows XP from a floppy disk the way you used to be able to with DOS. One handy way to easily boot XP is by using a USB flash drive. Here's how to make it work. Boot Windows XP from a USB flash drive

My sister's computer (Windows XP) is creating unwanted multiple copies of some of her files (Copy 1, Copy 2, etc.). Any ideas? Thanks


This must be a virus. Please scan the computer with a good antivirus program. You may try smitfraudfix first then malware bytes. if not resolved then use trojan remover. all of them are freely available on internet.

I am trying to copy files on to a flash drive or recordable CD to back them up but I can't because I can't drag my files at all


Sometimes you can't drag files for back up due to software limitations. Try to start your back up program first and then highlight the files you want to back up.

Select the files by highlighting them and right click for a drop down menu. If there is no option given to send to back up, your program may not support drag and drop.

Backing up files is not the same as saving them. Be careful, because you need the back up program to open them again.

If you only want to save your files rather than back them up, do this:

Highlight the files. Right click on the files you have highlighted. Make sure your cursor is right on top of the highlighted files. right click and on the drop down menu choose -send to-.The menu will give options. One of the options is send to compressed folder. This also saves space and is easy to open.

Of course, there are a variety of ways to approach this task, but this is the easiest.

An actual backup program compresses and backups your files and you need tags to access them in the future. In this case, the program simply may not support drag and drop.

Thanks for the question, please comment with the exact backup program you wish to use and we can help you with that if this solution was unacceptable.

No File items in Windows Small Business Suite XP


Open MS word, right click on an empty space of your menu bar, select costumize. Click the Commands Tab, then on the CAtegories window, scroll down and select Built In menu. At the left pane (Commands) you will see the File item. Drag it toward the Menu bar of your MS Word program, and drop it there, preferably before the Edit option. Hope this helps!
