Re: control pannel

Your account/user must be set as guest, you should have it set as an adninistrator, either create yourself a new account or try to change your account type. If you are unable to set an account as administrator you will have to reinstall windows to set admin up.

Error message Low on virtual memory

Virtual Memory is used by the operating system as an extension to the Random Access Memory (RAM). When the RAM does not have enough space to accommodate the entire running program, the inactive parts of that program are temporarily shifted to the Virtual Memory. These parts are then swapped back into the RAM as and when needed. If the Virtual Memory set on your system is not enough for the computer operations to run smoothly, then you will get the "Virtual Memory Is Too Low" error message.If operating system is xp then this problem can be easily overcome by increasing the Virtual Memory size.This is how you can do it by following instrutions:

  1. Click on "Start" and then click on "Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the "System" icon in the Control Panel.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the System Properties dialog box.
  4. Click on the "Settings" button below Performance.
  5. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the Performance Options dialog box.
  6. Click on the "Change" button below Virtual memory.
  7. Click on a drive_letter below "Drive [Volume Label]" in the Virtual Memory dialog box.
  8. Click on the "Custom size" option.
  9. Click in the "Initial size (MB)" text box and type a larger value (for example, 600).
  10. Click in the "Maximum size (MB)" text box, and type a larger value (for example, 1500).
  11. Click on the "Set" button. Similarly change the Virtual Memory on other drives.
  12. Click on "OK" and then restart your computer.

How to convert english xp sp2 to mandarin xp sp2? tnx

Go to the start button, then control panel, when you open control panel
if you don't see Region and Language, look up in the top corner and switch to classic view.

In region and language is where you change the language and keyboard.

If Chinese is not there, you might have to have the windows XP disk,'
to install the language, so times they are not all installed to save space.

Also, go to windows updates, its also in control panel, check for updates, you might find that you can load the language from there .

Duuble clicking problem

If this issue is only relevant in the My Computer folder I would ensure you do not have any viruses or other malicious software installed.

Also, check your mouse setting for the double-click function



Then on the BUTTONS tab there is a section for Double Click speed with a folder icon for testing it out. Make sure it is set as required for your use.
