Lost product key for xp home


The only thing you can really do is purchase a new Product key from Microsoft. I am sure that if you search the internet you could find a product key, but given that it is illegal I wouldn't suggest it.

Regarding slow speed


The setting for opening in the same window is when you are in a folder and you go to Tools/Folder Options. From there, the 2nd setting should be set to Open Each Folder In The Same Window. Next go to the 2nd tab and click Apply To All Folders.

Finally, the increase the overall performance of your drives and system in general, I would suggest running Disk Defragmenter. Actually, I would suggest running it 3 times in a row to make sure your files are fully compacted and defragmented.

You can find instructions on how to run that program HERE.

I have a problem with my computer. whenever i open any folder in any drive, the search window opens. what should i do in order to solve this?


This type of problem normally occurs because some virus called ‘PET32.exe’ , or it can also occur due some other virus which disrupt the windows registry.

. Open Start >> Run or press Window Key + r , this will open the run prompt.

2. Type “regedit” ( without quotes )and press Enter.
3. Navigate to key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

4. Double the registry key named Default and set the value to none.

This will restore the normal windows explorer behavior of opening a folder when you double click a folder rather than opening windows search.

If search opens when you double click on any windows drive, then try this

1. Open Start >> Run or press Window key + r
2. Type “regsvr32 /i shell32.dll” ( without quotes )and press Enter

After the command run successfully, you will see a message saying DllRegisterServer and DllInstall in Shell32.dll succeeded.

I hope this will help to fix the trouble.
