What it sounds like is happening is that not all features of MS Word are installed and the system is looking for the installation CD to obtain some necessary feature/option. Don't cancel the installation. Put in the Office CD and let it perform the update.

As for Windows XP service pack 3, you likely need to validate your operating system. The Microsoft website will prompt you accordingly... let it validate and you should be able to download SP3.

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

How can I reinstal Windows Search and Windows Security Centre


Install Windows Security Center


Open Internet Explorer and navigate to the Microsoft Windows Update website.


Click the "Express" button on the main page to have your computer checked for important updates to be installed.


Since Windows Security Center is not installed, it will be detected and installed within the update.


Search the list of updates that will be installed on your Computer and deselect any options besides Windows Security Center that you don't want installed at this time.


Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation process.


Set your computer up for Automatic Updates to keep your computer up to date.

You can do so by clicking "Start" followed by "Control Panel."


Click "Automatic Updates" and select the recommended option.


Click "Apply" followed by "OK" to save the changes and exit the window.


Install Windows Security Center in Windows Vista


Click the "Start" button followed by "All Programs." Scroll through the list and select "Windows Update" from the available options. You can also type "Windows Update" in the search field followed by pressing "Enter" to access it immediately.


Click the "Change Settings" button in the left window pane.


Select the radio button next to "Automatically download and install updates."


Click "OK" when you have finished. Windows will begin to scan your computer and download the necessary updates, one of which will be Windows Security Center if it isn't available on your computer already. When the updates have finished installing, a bubble will pop up in your system tray telling you new updates have installed and your computer needs to be restarted.


Restart your computer and once you log back on to Windows, Security Center will be available. You can access it by clicking the "Start" button and typing "Windows Security Center" in the search field. It will also be available in the "All Programs" software list.


Reinstall Windows Search


If for some reason you've lost Windows Search from your computer, it is possible to reinstall it.

Reinstalling Windows Search will improve the performance and stability of your computer system's indexer.


It will allow you to sort and group results in Windows Explorer more quickly, and will improve the indexing of your online email.


It expands your system's ability to do fast remote queries of file shares, including on Windows XP and Server 2003.

It automatically indexes shared folders and contains improvements in previews for earlier supported operating systems (Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP).


When you type a search term into Windows Search, the results appear quickly.

This is also true for information from emails and their attachments.



Download and install Windows Search on your computer.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/desktopsearch/choose/windowssearch4.mspx?tab=Install%20It

Click on the appropriate link for your version of Windows.


Click "Open" to download the file if you use Vista.

Click "Save" to download the file if you use Windows XP.


Click on "Run" to install Windows Search on your computer.

Follow the prompts to complete Windows Search installation.


Restart your computer.

Windows Search will be available in the Start menu if you use Vista.


If your operating system is Windows XP, use the Deskbar for quick and easy search access to indexed content on your PC or the network.


Personalize Windows Search for an optimal search experience .

Add-ins let you index Outlook saved email, Microsoft networks, Internet Explorer history and Lotus Notes.


Hope this helps

Dear Sir, My spyware doctor expired last feb. 2011, insted of renewing it, i purchase spyware doctor with anti virus on line last jan 18, 2011. Question: 1- why the expired spyware doctor is keep on...


If i understand this correctly, you have purchased Spyware Doctor, but can't install it. If this is true, click "start", find "control panel" and click to open. When control panel opens, find "Programs and Features". Right click on that and open. Find Spyware Doctor in the list that comes up and right click on that. Click on uninstall. Click, next, or allow on all windows that pop up. At the end you will see "finish". When done if it doesn't prompt you to restart, then do so. Now go back into progarms and features and make sure anything having Spyware Doctor is gone. If so exit.
When computer restarts, install your insatllation cd for your spyware. You should either see "run" or "allow", or a window will pop up and, at the bottom of the window, You should see "open file with...". Click on that. This will open another window that lists your files for the software. You should see "autorun", maybe with a icon, or, 'autorun.exe". Right click on the auorun file and it shoul start your download immediately or will ask you to allow to run. When downloading, you might have to click next or allow on certain things for download to complete. When it gets to end, click on finish and if not prompted to restart then do so. After restart, you sofware may open or you may have a new icon in your group. If it doesn't open automatically, click on the icon.

Cannot get Vista update to download. Also I cannot get my Vista to transfer my photos to another folder.


Sounds like you already have the most recent version of Windows. If you recently installed the new Windows then you have to have the most critical updates installed before you can download any other updates. Mine was SP Pack 3. Go to windows Update in your start button and let Windows do a thorough search for your updates. Most of the time Windows has to be Verified as the first download which it installs, then after that find something else to do, because your Updates will keep coming all day. Good Luck.
