You want to unistall it, restart your PC then reinstall it again. If your using Norton or McAfee those could be causing the Problems. Many people have issues with Norton and McAfee....I try to stay far away from those software. You'll need to contact then for support. If not, the uninstall/reinstall should fix it.

Also don't know your OS ?
Flight Simulator 2004 doesn't run correctly on Windows 8. It runs on my Windows 8 laptop bought in April 2013. But, none of the aircraft, including any add-ons, show up in the preview window - it is always black. Also, If I download weather and try to save a flight, when I go back to that "saved" flight, it always reverts to the default flight with the Cessna @ the default airport. If anyone knows how to make the flights save, on the Windows 8 platform, please let me know - likewise, with the aircraft previews. Flight Simulator 2004 did quite well on the Windows XP platform for me.

Calm down.
First of all don't panic on the Start menu and Modern UI.
You'll get used to it and you'll find out that it's pretty easy to use.
If you will try and still you won't like it then please add a comment on that and I will send you instructions here on how to return back to Windows 7.

How to reboot samsung r601 laptop

Hi there,

Rebooting a Laptop is quite simple. Click on Start, go to the > arrow next to Shut Down, then click Restart. If this doesn't work, then try holding the power button down for three seconds or so. Turning it off by holding the power button will eventually start causing errors in your hard drive so don't turn it off like that regularly.

Hi, I bought a laptop from a dealer, 8 years ago. It had a Vista windows on. When it crashed a few days ago, I realized I did not get a windows and word C.D. with it, it was loaded on to my laptop....

The key at the bottom is likely to be an OEM key and will only work with an OEM disk. You can contact the dealer and they should provide you with the disk, or even better a restore disk. Failing that you'll have to procure one, legally!

I turn on my puter it goes to the user login and then logs off


I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)

Auto restart?

Hi: I agree with the opinion that computers are supposed to be shutdown while we are not working on them... let's see: not only you will spend less energy as your operative system (in this case - Windows XP) will reload all the programs and information needed... and this is a true time save because your computer will run faster... But let's focus on the issue: - if that was provoked by you, don't do it again because each time you do something like that, Windows will accumulate errors... - if the problem is with the software (like you cannot have access to your Windows) you should use the "System Restore" Tool. It's a good tool for domestic computers and the common user If you need more detailed info just post again ;) Regards
