Question about Computers & Internet
I am experiencing MAJOR issues with my Dell Inspiron and am currently under warranty. Dell claims its a software issue and now is stating I need to pay for it.
The issue is that I have MS Vista Home Premium on my system. From what I know Vista has had a SERIES of problems. And I've seen a technician and the problems still exist.
The computer is deleting email (RAPIDLY), deleting within documents (automatically) and is also asking when I boot up which operating system do I want to run? When the only one installed is MS Vista Home Premium. So why is it asking that?
I am on the phone with dell right now but OMG- the technicians are based in India and some of which are rude, mean and are pushy to get you to buy an extended warranty - (my warranty ends in three months). Of course, I've had the computer less than a year and now I am feel like I want to throw it across the room - but its my entire work life.
What software issue is this and how do I fix it? I am at a complete loss.
I have a suggestion.
backup the data, formate the disk.
load linux( PCLinuxos or Ubuntu) and make it dual boot, after that install windows XP, might your friend have some CD of that(I have done the same).
XP is good operating system and very simple to use. Also you can always have backup disk of your old vista.
Say bye bye to Dell.

Word cannot start the converter mswrd632.wpc
This error is cause because of f the security update for Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 on December 8, 2009.
You may experience mail merge issues write files are parsed but no message is shown.
To resolve this issue, an affected user can unregister the mswrd632 converter by editing the registry as follows:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Text Converters\Import\MSWord6.wpc
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
Exit Registry Editor.
NOTE: For x64 systems above path is slightly changed:
This change will effectively unregister the converter and disable it for third-party applications and for Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office will use its own text converters to open these kinds of files.
You can also fix this issue with applying the registry fix, but that is a less secure way according to Microsoft, as this fix actually creates 'AllowConversion' key in the new 'Wordpad' subfolder. (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad)
Download REG fix
There is another way to solve this issue by copying the MSWrd632.wpc file from another computer that doesn't have this issue. Make sure that this file comes from a trusted source on your network. This file can be found on the following path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv
OR DO THIS
Go to Tools > Options > General (Tab) in Word 2003
And check "Confirm Conversion at Open"
When you next try to open the document it will prompt you with a list to convert from. Choose Word 2007 and your document will open.
Have in mind that you will have to unregister mswrd632 first, which is noted above, before you make this changes.
NOTE: If none of this works, please check that your file is not corrupted, or that you or someone else didn't add X at the end of .doc extension or vise versa. This WILL NOT work! You have to convert the document using Office 2007 or 2010.
