Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

2 Answers

I need to repair windows xp home edition

The Cd that I used to install windows XP in my PC came directly from the manufacturer, Emachines, actually there are two CD's, one for restoring my PC and the other one is used for installing Windows XP Homre edition but it doen't have 'Repair Windows'

I have two problems: one, I can't download PDF from the internet because I get the following message error: FoxitReader OCX.ocx, this error messsage is related directly with the installion of Foxit Reader program that edits PDF so I uninstalled the program but still I had the same problem, then I restored my PC but the problem was not fixed f

Second, When I installed Windows in my PC just three weeks ago, due a virus problem, I noticed three weeks later that a file was missing in the directory of MY Documents and Settings which was the Internet Temporary Files, I know that is in my PC because when I used one of some programs that I have to delete temp files in the results obtained it showed that there were some Temporary Internet Files found, sometimes there are temp files that I cann't be deleted after the scannig process so I have to delete them manually.

Six years ago I ordered Service Pack 2 on a CD from Microsoft, I only paid S&H to get it, I wonder if I could get a copy of Windows XP home edition from Microsoft,without paying a full price for it because I have my XP Home edition serial that I got from eMachines when I purchased my PC.
I need help
Thanks

What version of foxit are you using ?

For the second problem... open a folder... any one will do... at the top in the menu you will see tools.. folder options... then the middle tab which is view... in that window scroll down untill you see show hidden folders and files... mark that.
you temp files folder should be there now.

Need windows xp home edition to repair operating system


if the operating system is very bad you can restore from the recovery partition which is already existing on your computer.
however, you should be able to go in the computer manufacturer website and install from there.... maybe even get the entire dvd/cd from there. what manufacturer computer is yours?

Boot MGR IS MISSING


What actual operating system do you have?
Windows XP does not use the Boot Manager as this was introduced with Windows Vista or Windows 7 and higher versions.

If you are missing the Boot Mgr for Windows Vista or 7, then you will need to do a Startup Repair which you can do using either a Recovery CD if you have one, or else using the Vista or 7 installation disc.

See the following links:

Yes expert ntldr missing


It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

My windows xp home edition has crashed and i have no recovery cd


Find a friend with either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk,
or with an 'OEM' ("original equipment manufacturer") equivalent.

Use that disk, plus the 25-character product-key on the label on the side of your computer,
to reinstall Windows, or first to try to "repair" your installed copy of Windows.

Or, if you have a "brand-name" computer (Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, eMachines)
telephone the manufacturer, and order a replacement "System Restore" set of CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

I need to do a windows repair but I cannot find my cd. Can I download one and save it to a disk and install it on a different computer


Ask your friends to borrow either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM (bought when XP was available in retail stores) or an "OEM" (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version. The OEM version was used by Microsoft-licensed "system-builders" (small computer-stores that assemble computers from the individual components, and then install this "generic" version of Windows).

If you have the "genuine Windows" decal on the side of your desktop, use that 25-character product-key and the "borrowed" CD-ROM to reinstall Windows.

Computer crash


Try Ubuntu, its free

You would have to call the PC's manufacturer and pay money for them to send you a recovery CD - Otherwise, a local PC shop may let you install XP using a CD of theirs and using your Product Key.
