Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

I cannot open the System Information tool

Every time I try to run the System Information application (Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Information), the Help and Support Center application runs. I had checked the System Information tool's target icon (msinfo32.exe). When I click it's target icon, I still get the Help and Support Center.

Any ideas of how to solve this problem?

Thank you.

The problem is when click on application program it displays fatal error message of error opening driver file how can i fix this?


Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.

Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.

If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.

If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.

How to restore my computer at earlier time


Click on start, then programs (win xp) or all programs (win 7). Find accessories and click on it. Then find system tools and click on it and you will see system restore and click on it.

After clicking on system restore, follow the prompts and choose a date. The application will complete the restoration process and reboot your pc when finished. Once the pc restarts the process is complete.

NBA LIVE 08


try deleting and then reinstalling the NBA Live 08 application to the computer and if that won't work. I recommend clicking on start,all programs,accessories, system tools, and then system restore. This will restore your appliction to working condition without erasing all the info and files off your computer. Just make sure you run a system restore to the latest restore point or day you knew NBA Live 08 was working and it should be just fine.

Icons slow to launch on my xp


You may have a virus or trojan. Run a virus scanner (AVG is a free download) and then run SuperAntiSpyware (also free), or similar spyware and virus removal programs.

Run disk cleanup: start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk clanup.

Run defrag: start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter.

Also, you may have too many programs trying to start at the same time or one particular program that is jamming things up. You can use Sysinternals "Autoruns," to select which programs will run at start. Here's the link: http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Autoruns/1092024321/1?all_reviews
