Skype kernel32


Skype v6.6.0.106 is the last version which supports XP SP2. If you try install newer version, you will need SP3 installed, or you will get the kernel32 problem "Failed to get proc adress for getLogicalProcessorInformation (KERNEL32.Dll)".

If you don't want to install SP3 for your XP, here is a work around for you to run Skype with XP SP2.
1. Download Skypesetupfull.exe v6.3.30.105;
2. Uninstall your current version of Skype from Control Panel;
3. Block the website download.skype.com in your router or in the
Host file;
4. Delete any auto downloaded skypesetup.msi in %Temp%
folder;
5. Install Skype v6.3.30.105.
Done.

Browsers like Mozilla/Opera/Crome/Netscape crashing
This issue is common for many using WinOS XP SP3, Vista, Win7 etc as Microsoft has made malicious programming codes in-built into their Explorer that makes other browsers work unstable....
There was a law suit which MS lost on this issue...now they have to allow other browsers to work in tandem....i guess this issue is not there in XP currently as the updates in there are not built to crash other browsers...so try XP...also try not to use Auto update enabled in the Control Panel/Security Ctr (disable it). I guess only a fresh clean install of OS with Auto update disabled can keep the updates from making changes to Mozilla/Opera/Google Crome/Netscape etc browsers...other than IE.

Note: Irrespective of which Win OS you are having keep the Auto Update Turned OFF, that way you will have less problems and the machine will be more stable, more often the Auto Update makes unnecessary changes to the OS which is not required at all…the Auto Update is in the Control Panel/Security Center. I have had many issues with Auto updates in the past, after disabling it since 1 year no issues in OS and my machine is more stable than earlier.
Keep these Settings in Security Center:
Firewall – ON, Auto Update – OFF, Virus Protection – ON and updated

Yes you can do that. Everything will be intact after you install it, so don`t worry.The emails are store on the server not on your computer, so they`re safe too.

Soundcard (soundmax) software driver will not installed on clean installed windows xp mce 2005. What i'm doing wrong?


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.
