I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH FIREFOX/JAVA. I KEEP GETTING BAD SCRIPT ERRORS THAT CRASH FIREFOX OR FREEZE MY P.C. I RUN WINDOWS VISTA AND HAVE THE NEWEST FIREFOX WITH IMACROS. ALSO MY FLASH PLAYER SEEMS TO BE...


Java is your first problem get rid of that malware... second problem is you don't have a mac, haha, just kidding, but seriously get one.
To answer your question, I would try uninstalling your add ons 1 or 2 at a time to see which one will fix er back up. If that does not work, get Revo uninstaller from download.com and use it remove firefox (and java) completely. You can download the newest version any time for free. Personally I dont like a lot of background processes so I use the portable version of firefox which is also free.

USB Memory Key not Recognized on Desktop running Windows Vista


check the formats of the keys. if they are NTFS they might not be recognized by earlier Windows versions. What version of windows does the laptop computer use? It may be as simple as using the correct formatting (FAT or FAT32) on the USB memory key.

Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.

Hot sync with vista


I have Vista Home Premium and I hotsync my peg-n760c using Palm Desktop. It came with version 4.1, but it was a disaster. The Cd is old and isn't compatible with Vista. So I downloaded an upgrade from Palm.com and I definitely don't use the Jukebox software that came with it either. Go to Palm.com and download PalmDesktop Win62.exe and install it. It should recognize your USB connection and hotsync immediately. Also, use Windows Media Player and change the files to mp3 by using a free program called Switch. Just google Switch and download the basic program. Then load the mp3 files onto your memory stick in Windows Explorer. Then use MSimport to load the memory stick files into your handheld. Good luck!

Need Driver


Hi, you have unfortunatly met the same fate as a lot of unsuspecting people. VISTA does not support most older plugin devices or earlier version soft ware. It is possible to run an old old program designed for WIN 3.1 but none of the later top line products. It is the same for Hardware. My advice is to locate a set of drivers for your new computer system that work with XP and delete VISTA then install XP. Regards mistyman
