    C&C Red alert 2 used to work fine with XP, now I have Vista Home, and I can not get it to work. Have tried changing the compatibility setting by right clicking on the icon and going to properties > compatibility. Still nothing. Any suggestions?

How could i get windows vista into my windows xop for free


Unless your PC is fairly new you will not be able to run Windows Vista in the first place even if you could get a legal copy of it for free which I know of no way of doing. Go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx and see if your PC will even run Vista. The upgrade advisor will tell you if your PC can even run Vista. You have XP which is a stable OS after many years of updates. My advice is to stay as you are until you buy a new PC. When you do purchase Windows 7 and forget Vista. I just upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 and it is superior to Vista hands down.

Crashes to windows after playing about 5 minutes


Most likely the issue you are having is your computer is under powered to run both Vista Home Premium and the game. Vista is heavy on the resources and since you are running Vista Home Premium you will need more then some running the Basic version.

So the easy fix would be to up you memory upto 2 gigs. Note best practice for Vista is to have atlest 2 gigs of ram in the system.

If you still have trouble I would test the game on another Vista computer with a 2.0 or higher CPU to see if it still has trouble. If it does not then most likely it will not work on your computer.

Also if you did an upgrade from XP to Vista you might have so Windows issue. So if the test on the other computer worked you might try a fresh install of Vista to resolve any possible Windows issues.

Hope this helps

I want to restore to factory state but boot cd won't work


I think your hard drive which is a SATA drive, needs to be formatted specially for Vista.
you need to find out the make and model of your hard drive,and then you can download a hard drive formatting utility program from the hard drive manufacturers website.
The hard drive is accessed from under the keyboard on this model.

Microsoft updates


If it just started to do this due to some update, a simple System Restore to the day before this started.

Instead of dealing with such workarounds, it is probably better to use Parental Controls (Vista), the replacement for it http://download.live.com/familysafety (made for Windows 7, compatible with XP) or software like Cybersitter, netnanny etc.

Anyway hopefully a system restore will work, but the update will return (if you want to keep the system fully updated as you say)

  • Start
  • Programs
  • Accessories
  • System Tools
  • System Restore
This forum will have more and more family security articles soon

http://www.capitaltechmd.com/index.php?option=com_agora&task=viewforum&id=35&Itemid=19

in XP Home individual updates can be removed by going to Add/Remove Programs and clicking Show Updates (not recommended unless you are certain what updates do and how it will affect the system)

Hope this helps
