Son-in-law is unable to download a program into PC that we gave

We gave our grandchildren our unused desktop. Recently our son-in-law called to ask for our Windows XP Administator's password to download a program.

I informed him that I don't remember using a password, only gave the PC a name. I did not want togive it a password because I thought that I might misplace or forget it. When I owned the PC I never had a problem downloading. What do you think the problem may be due to?

Thank you for any help you may provide.

If you did not set a password then there is not a password. It may state "Provide administrator password if available...but no problem, pass the instructions below to your son-in-law and if there is a password he can change it, he does not need to know what the password is. Let me know how it turned out. Hope this helps.

-- right click on my computer....
--click on "manage",
--new window of "Computer Management" will get open.,
--now on the left side of the window...click on "Local Users and Groups",
--now on the right side double click on "users", then
--right click on "Administrator".then
--click on "set password"...
--then just change it....n then njoy.....

Do you have any browser instead of an IE8, like Firefox, Safari and others? If you like IE more than any other browser you can try to clean your computer cache first by deleting your, cookies, history files and temporary internet files under Internet Options in Control Panel.
And try to use the IE to check if the feature will work the same way again if not I may suggest for you to download a different browser. I can recommend Firefox and Google Chrome.

so i would uninstall aol. start>control>add or remove programs, then click on aol and uninstall.
for internet explorer i would right click on the desktop, select properties, click on the tab that says desktop, then click the button at the bottom that says customize desktop. in there, there might be a check box next to internet explorer. if you check the box and push ok it will be on the desktop. if it doesnt show up it should still be in start>all programs and near the end it should be there. if it is on the desktop, right click on the icon, choose properties, click on the tab that says connections, in there, there should be like three options with little round check spots next to them. if you can, choose the one that says never dial a connection. see if that stuff helps.

Want to program symbols p470 scanner to work with my existing program


I have a small inventory company. We do inventory in corner stores such as 7-11s. I decided that we would like to try scanning products. At present we use calculators. I have a program that my son-in-law made me. We use it in windows 2000. The company we work for really likes the way our program prints out there information, so I would like to program the scanner to print out information the same as our program. Do you think this is possible?

My son-in -law doesn't like me enough to help me out. I can't pay him like the government does for his job.

I know how to program applications for Symbol Scanners but... in your message above..
this is what you wanted??

I would like to program the scanner to print out information the same as our program

Can you post a screenshot of the PRINTOUT you wanted?

Vista security


No if you ask me, Norton 08 should be perfect,....
Vista bby itself is not all that secure.. its good to have additional antivirus program and Norton 08 is in no way less effective than other programs out there.

have no doubts at all, proceed onto instal Norton.. thats the rights thing you do
