Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Low disk space in Windows XP but I only had less program.

I only have 8 programs.. Mozilla Firefox, Stardock, YM and such. I keep on deleting the programs because it always says "Low disk space" and I only had 1MB left. I checked the properties of the computer and it stated that I used 20GB w/c I think wasn't used by me.

Please help me on this. What should I do?

Is your computer's "automatic updates" on? With all the available updates the window's size come upto 12Gb. And if you haven't changed the Windows Page file area it would use your C:/  by default. Try changing the page file area. Go to Properties in My computer>Advanced TAB>Performance "click on settings">Advanced>Under "virtual memory" click change. And change the location of virtual memory to some other drive. And also do not forget to select "no paging file" for Drive which is low in memory. Try this it might work. And yes, as asked by Bonji5555, run file clean up once in a while. and defragment your disks. There are many free disk defragmentors available over the net, google and find one for yourself. Windows have a built in defragmenter but its really slow.
Good luck!

What do xpcom mean when trying to get on to internet site as it keeps comeing up cannot load xpcom


Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. (XPCOM problems require a reinstall) This means you remove Firefox program files (not any bookmarks etc. in your profile folder) and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
Note: You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
  1. Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org and save the setup file to your computer.
  2. After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu).
  3. Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
    • Windows:
      • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    • Mac: Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
    • Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
  4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
    1. Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
    2. Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.

Try going to dll-files.com and download the necessary file. Copy that file to C:\Windows\System. Hopefully this works for you. If not, you could also reinstall Windows which will reinstall the necessary files.

Too long to loading mozilla firefox


Yes it does take a while, especially if you haven't cleared your temp files and cache for a while.
Download the following free program called Ccleaner and run it. It will get rid of all your useless files and clean up your desk. With luck, this will speed up your firefox boot up time. You will also gain disk space!

I installed a addon for firefox and now firefox does not start again. it keeps saying windows:xbl error or somerthing like that. can u please tell me how to delete the file or reboot my notebook.


You need to go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name> (Windows Vista and Windows 7) and delete the addon, it usually has its own folder depending on the addon. For Windows 2000/XP, it would be C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>. If all else fails, delete the entire Mozilla folder from the Roaming folder (Windows Vista/Windows 7) or the Application Data folder (Windows 2000/Windows XP).
