If it just started to do this due to some update, a simple System Restore to the day before this started.

Instead of dealing with such workarounds, it is probably better to use Parental Controls (Vista), the replacement for it http://download.live.com/familysafety (made for Windows 7, compatible with XP) or software like Cybersitter, netnanny etc.

Anyway hopefully a system restore will work, but the update will return (if you want to keep the system fully updated as you say)

  • Start
  • Programs
  • Accessories
  • System Tools
  • System Restore
This forum will have more and more family security articles soon

in XP Home individual updates can be removed by going to Add/Remove Programs and clicking Show Updates (not recommended unless you are certain what updates do and how it will affect the system)

Hope this helps

I was writing a blog to a newspaper website and I would be half way through the blog, then the site would drop out


I would recommend composing your blog entry in Word or another offline text editor and then pasting it into the Blog when you have completed the entry.

That way you can spell check offline and you can save a copy offline as well. This should save you loosing your entries due to the site timing out.

Microsoft windows 8 update causes all my downloaded apps to disappear as well as all my pictures, videos, and documents from my libraries


i think this is happening due to two reasons
1) Your are not using Microsoft account user and have chosen a local user.
2) possible issues with windows 8 version you have - i didn't face it for 1.5 years of Windows 8 which i had.
Solutions
1) Use Microsoft account - they can keep all your apps in onedrive - so this gets automatically downloaded everytime.

2) Try to update to Windows 8.1 version - which is way better than Windows 8.

Hope this helps.

This method works as I have used it myself. If you have any questions regarding this method, feel free leave me a comment below.

Update: I have just found out that the keys you get using this method are not unique. You will only get 5 unique keys for 32-bit version of Windows 7 and 5 unique for 64-bit version. Following are the keys that you will get using this method. They will work fine so just use them!

Bought new Streets and Trips 2010 program. Loaded same on computer but it will not open or run due to 64 bit computer.


You can do 2 things.

1. Try to get a 64 bit update for your program.

or 2.

Download Virtual-PC from windows:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/

With this, you can emulate a 32 bit windows-xp, and run your program with it, but you need good hardware for this solution.

And there's a third solution, but it's not really a solution. Just get a 32 bit OS, maybe linux?

My daughter had to recover my computer from the begging and i lost my pogo. I have been playing and have paid up for a year please help me get pogo back running.


You should be able to go to the Pogo Home page and just log in. I have played Pogo in the past and when I traveled I used different computers. Go to:

http://www.pogo.com/home/home.do

Go to where it says "log In" and you should be able to access you account
Hope it helps.
