    I thought of that, however my girlfriend threw out the case with the authorization codes on it. (it was in the way of her crap) Is there another way?

I know this is prob what you don't wanna do but a buddy of mine had a sim prob. He ended up just uninstalling the game rebooting a couple times and reinstalled the game. As far as I know now he hasn't had that prob again.

You may want to check your PC is getting an IP address;
From the command prompt do
ipconfig /all

You should see a line which says gateway: 192.168.1.1
If the gateway is blank then your router is unable to issue your PC with an IP address.

I have a game that wont install on my computer at all...nothing pops up like it should.


Sometimes the drives don't automatically recognize cd's (assuming your using CD). Usually remembers last command which can vary from setup.exe, autorun etc. so if a new CD is inserted with diff. program launch, it can go dumb. You can go to "My computer" and double click on your CD drive (with the game cd inserted) and look for setup.exe or install.exe or autorun. Double-click on one of those files to launch the installer.

Why does my icon have a shield in front of it and how do i take it off


In Windows Vista, all icons that have the shield mean that you need to have administrative rights to open that program.

To remove the icon,
  1. Launch MSCONFIG from the Run menu("Start" button + "R"

  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
disable_uac_1_small.gif
  1. Press the Launch button.
  2. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  3. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.

WP xp is coming up and asking for password. I don't recall a pass word. This just started today as I turn the laptop on. ( happen before)


If it's a windows password do this, I've done this plenty of times.
Step1
Take a Windows bootable CD and insert it into your CD-ROM. Boot your computer with the Windows CD as if you were doing the Windows installation. When the CD starts working, you will be prompted to “Press any key to boot from CD”.
Step2
Go through the steps until you will see a setup screen where it requires you to choose from one of two options: Install Windows or Repair Windows
Step3
Press “R” to start repair of the windows. The Setup will start copying the files from CD to your PC hard drive. Wait for few minutes; the computer will then reboot itself automatically.
Step4
The GUI (Graphical User Interface) screen of Windows Setup will be shown on the screen. You will need to go to the command prompt.
If you are using Windows 2000, wait until the setup comes to the place where it says, “Registering Components.” There you are going to pres the “Shift+ F10” key.
If you are using Windows XP, wait until you see a progress bar in the left where it says, “Installing devices.” There you are going to press the “Shift + F10” key.
Step5
Now that you have opened the command prompt, you will need to get access to the control panel. Here is how:
If using Windows 2000, type “control.exe” in command prompt without quotes. If using Windows XP, type “nusrmgr.cpl” in command prompt without quotes.
Step6
Now that you have access to the control panel, you can reset or set a new password using the control panel administration/password utilities. When you are complete, close the command prompt and wait until the repair is completed. Restart your computer and login with your new password.
Remember you will need the windows product key for the operating system in question.
