I suggest you contact the maker of the software to see if it is compatible with Vista.
If it is, they should be able to help you with the install.

How to rid my computer of viruses


Use any Anti-virus scanner.
To start with you can use any trialware version of prominent anti-virus companies, like
norton
mcafee
bit defender
avg

you can try download.com to find free and trial based anti-virus programs.

Updating your virus scanner definitions regularly would minimize chances of getting infected again if your virus scanner is good.

I need pioneer dvr-215bk dvd rom drivers


dvd roms do not need drivers they are a standard format drive and should be recognised by your pc immediately.

in order to play DVDs you will however need a Software DVD player like WINDVD or POWER DVD

DVD-RWs do not need drivers but may require that the CD burning software that you use may need updating.

Reinstalled windows xp profesional after hd crash. Did not have the original acer aspie 5100 recovery disc to install. Now the cd dvd rom is not recognised by laptop


if you originally had Vista on then the bios is updated from the older XP bios and wont see the drive, check here for bios downloads, or put Vista back on.

If you have a full XP disc you will need to do a full format and installation, do not use somebody elses restore disc as it's not the complete windows that you will need.

ATAPI DVD A DH16A1L not reading blank dvd's


This is a firmware issue that I am also having the same problem with. The only real solution is to purchase a new drive temporarily, since the DH16A1L firmware update is precariously a "Vista Only" update. If you have XP or Windows 7, you are SOL, thanks to the lovely folks at HP.

This was my business' last purchase of any HP hardware, we have had enough of the fried laptop mobos and issues as such. I hope everyone follows suit

Cd-rom


it's a standard generic driver, so it may be the drive thats faulting or the firmware, all you can try is the usual uninstallation of your drive in device manager, then restart the pc for it to reinstall and try it again.
