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 will have to boot of the XP install disk and reformat a FULL NTFS format, first, that will enable you to wipe the drive and install XP. To save an email, or any file to a flash drive, simply copy/paste or drag and drop onto the drive, the drive must be Formatted first, format FAT32. OR when asked for location to save, point it to the flash drive as normally done.

I JUST CONNECT A SECOND MONITOR TO MY EXISTING RADEON 7500. I ALREADY SETUP THE 2ND MONITOR ON THE DISPLAY PROPERTIES ( WINDOWS XP) I CAN SEE THE MOUSE MOVING FROM ONE MONITOR TO THE OTHER, DOES ANYBODY...


you'll have to drag them windowed to your 2nd monitor. Windows automatically will use your primary monitor unless you use software to control where which programs will load.

A good program to use is called Ultramon.

No desk top icons only internet explorer no yahooo aim yahoo start up buttton noo programs


I'm not sure what operating system you are using but if you can get to All Programs we'll start there. On Windows XP Click Start>All Programs. Find the program you would like to see on your desktop. Right-click on the program and choose "Create Shortcut". Once the short cut is created it will still be in All Programs, you have to click on it and drag it to your desktop. You can do this on any program.

This version of Windows does not support this version of Roxio DLA. This product, which was created by Roxio, Inc., has been blocked from running because it might keep your computer from starting correctly...


Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
  1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
  2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
