You can run a "repair" install of XP from the CD that will basically replace the operating system without losing your data.

To do this boot from the XP Pro CD, let windows setup start, then you will get to a screen when you are prompted to select an operating system to repair, usually there will only be the one on your C: drive ... you then hit the R key to run the repair install.

If possible it is always advisable to back up any important data to dvds or an external hard drive before attempting this.

This is a link to the solution that is posted on Micro$ofts web site

It sounds like the error code can be caused by reinstalling windows 7 on a computer that has had a prior install. If you did not reformat the hard drive during the reinstall process last time try reinstalling again and reformat when the option is given.
hope this helps

My trial version windows 7 ultimate has been infected by a virus, antispyguard. the program has taken over my computer. what do i do


I would definitely reformat my hard drive and reinstall my Windows XP, reinstall my programs, and use my backups to restore my data. After that I would install a good antivirus program and then re-install my windows 7 trial version. Have fun!

When i last install Adobe Photoshop its ok... but after i reformat and try to install its ok also... but when i run... IT says Direct3d not supported... on the last reformat the directX is working fine...


It's important to let me know the operating system installed on the system with the system configuration. I will be glad if you can at least reply my post with those info.
I guess you are running windows Xp with the chipset which doesn't support Direct X 10 or newer version. Or in other words, windows vista or windows 7 with incompatible chipset for directX newer version.

First uninstall the currently installed DirectX and reinstall Direct X 9. You have to uninstall the currently installed direct x properly, and it's also important to clean the registry after it's uninstalled. After it's removed, restart your computer and reinstall Direct X 9. That'll definitely fix your problem.

If you need my further help, let me know with the details i've mentioned above so that I can help you better and with easiest instrucitons/methods.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
