    You don't "uninstall" an operating system. You wipe the hard drive and start over. Before you do that, do you have another operating system available? Windows will not work without a valid product key. You cannot use your Vista key to install XP. A new copy goes for anywhere from $50 - $200. Good luck.

Well i Suggest That You Should Install Windows XP On This System Because The Configuration Of Hardware Would Mess Up Everything In Case Of Windows Vista Installation..

There are 2 ways of UNINSTALLING WINDOWS VISTA


1) Using MS-DOS PROMPT and for that u need to have good expertise with the MS-DOS so that u can RUN DEBUG COMMAND on the hard drive

2) Method Is Easy .. it is to install WINDOWS XP and after its installation WINDOWS VISTA would be uninstalled

Temme if u need HELP in re-installing WINDOWS XP....

I would suggest downloading a free boot CD image such as UBCD or Hiren's Boot CD, burn it to a cd and boot with that, those both contain utilities that will let you erase the drive completely allowing you to install a different operating system.

You can get UBCD and more info here: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Good Luck!

C:/Progam Files/blocktards/unins000.dat what is this error and how do i fix it


Hello crouch8323,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
Unins000.dat is a files that if used by Blocktards' uninstaller to properly uninstall Blocktards off of your Desktop. If your are trying to uninstall Blocktards and you are getting an error message, I recommend that you uninstall Blocktards from the Control Panel's Add & Remove Program (for Windows XP) or Programs & Features (for VISTA or 7). If you still have the same error message, you can also try uninstalling Blocktards by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Blocktards, and click Uninstall. If these steps give you the same error message, you may need to use Blocktards installer to uninstall the game, see if running the installer gives you the option to modify, remove or repair. And if all else fails you can always use a 3rd party uninstaller software like the option found in CCleaner.
Regards,

It keeps saying that the application fails to initalize properly and yahoo messenger keeps not responding. I am running Windows Vista.


This kind of a problem can occur due to many problems. But more often than not, it's an installation error arising from Yahoo's end. Long story short, you should be able to run it properly if you reinstall Yahoo messenger from the scratch. First do a complete uninstall of Yahoo messenger. To do this, you'll need a third party software like Revo Uninstaller. If you're looking for a free alternative, try uninstalling with CCleaner.
After this, install a fresh copy of Yahoo messenger.

Driver blockt work due to compatibility issues.


A user can uninstall the Windows Vista update that is causing this issue. Once the update is uninstalled you will need to wait until Microsoft has released a fix for this issue. Otherwise, a Windows Vista update may cause this problem to occur again if Microsoft has not pushed a fix yet.
To uninstall the conflicting update, do the following:
1. Click Start
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Programs and Features
4. Choose View installed updates
5. Select "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB943302)
6. Click Uninstall
7. Restart your computer and the update should be uninstalled
