    I'm trying to load a new copy of Lavasoft's Ad Aware and it will not load due to the C++ Runtime 9.0 service pack 1 not being available. Trying to download the service pack I get a message that I already have a later version of service pack 1.

This message means you are already running Service Pack 2 or later , so why are you trying to install Service Pack 1 (a 4 or 5 year old update) in the first place? Any computer made in the last 4 years already has SP1 or 2.

Low disk space winsxs is 10 gb how do I delete this file pls

The bad news are that i don’t recommend doing any manual removals on winsxs folder. Such a step could probably make your applications non-workable or even break your system!
If you have Vista sp1 installed use the vsp1cln.exe : The utility removes all Vista SP1 uninstall files and by using it you can reduce few gigs.
To run vsp1cln.exe:
  • Press on vista start button type cmd.exe and hit on enter.
  • hen enter the following command:Vsp1cln.exe and press enter key
  • You will be asked to confirm your action , just press “Y” and after few minutes your winsxs will be smaller.
Other ways to reduce the winsxs folder:
  • You can uninstall non needed application
  • If you have office 2007 installed , and you can get later distribution like with sp1 included – uninstall your entire office, and install the version that includes sp files.

I have downloaded the game but when i run it i get this error message "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v.2.0.50727\mscorwks.dll could not be loaded "

Try downloading the newest .NET Framework from Microsoft. They are up to version 3.5 SP1. You will have to get version 3.5 first, and then install SP1.

Good luck.

Panasonic SDR-H80, Need service pack for video cam

I hope you have WIN XP on your computer. Windows XP has 3 versions of service pack (SP) available. SP1, SP2 and SP3. For more information on obtaining SP, please refer:

Following is the direct link for downloading SP3

NB: SP is a huge file and will take long time depending on the speed of your internet connection. SP2 download would fail in 'dial up' internet connection. Also installation of SP will take a long time, depending on the configuration and the performance of your system
