Network sharing center won't stay open


just been fixing a window vista laptop with problems

Microsoft stopped supporting windows vista years ago
no updates or upgrades
you are at base service pack one
and computer should have been updated to service pack 3 years ago
from service pack 3 a windows 10 upgrade is possible

try an ethernet or usb wifi connection .
.see if the computer will run the way you want it

any windows vista computer is a x32 bit system
with upgrades can run x64
x86 is the current

if you are running anything higher than 32 or x64 software the computer will be slow sometimes freeze or shut down

vista came out same time as and dial up internet
and early broad band

vista can run office 95 but windows 2000 is stable

Free download windows xp


The program was written in 1995. It was developed with max capability of 32 bit. The system fails at 64 bit. I wrote the update which made it compatible with XP, Vista and Win 7... 32 bit. I am considering trying to update the program to 64 bit but I'm not sure if the effort will be worth the time to achieve a working copy. In the long run it may shrink to its core functions which are the nice checkbook features. If you have an old 32 bit system around that will keep this great program functioning for a while.

Start windows defender definitions


Updates for Windows Defender are usually included in regularly scheduled Windows updates. However, you can manually download and install the updates yourself.
Updates may be available in several places online, but only download those from Microsoft's official website.
Files from other sources may in fact be viruses or other malware disguised as legitimate update files.

Log into your Windows Vista computer as an administrator.
You will need administrator rights to install the update files.
Check whether you are running the 32- or 64-bit version of Windows Vista by clicking on the "Start" menu, then typing "system" in the search box and clicking "system" in the programs list.
For the "System type" entry you will see either "32-bit operating system" or "64-bit operating system".

Download the update definition files from Microsoft's website.
There are different versions of the files for the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, so be sure to download the correct version for your computer by simply clicking the appropriate link (see Links below), which will start the download automatically.
32 bit
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=70631
64 bit
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=70632
Click "Run" when the download has completed to immediately begin installation.
Follow the prompts on your screen to complete the installation, and restart your computer if necessary.
A restart is not usually required immediately, but is usually required in order for installation to be fully completed, so restart as soon as possible.

My computer is vista my smartscan 3600 runs on xp is there any downloads that would let me run it on vista?


Your best bet is to check on the manufacturer's website to see if there is a driver download or software package download for Windows Vista for your scanner. The other thing you should also watch for, is if you need the 32-bit or 64-bit driver, so if you have a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of Windows Vista, make sure you also download the appropriate driver for that version of Windows.

Unable to check for updates with Windows Vista Home Premiun, SP1, 32 bits, error code 80244019 for Windiws Update and 0x80244019 for Windows Defender, last update instaled Jan/01/09


I've been having the same error when I try to run Windows update on a Vista Ultimate machine setup for use with our SBS 2003 server running ISA 2004.

The Solution that I found is this.

When you setup Vista for use with a domain it creates the following regkey with a subkey etc ( policy ) that sets Vista to look for a WSUS server.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="http://serversbs"
"WUStatusServer"="http://serversbs"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000004
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:00000001
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001

When I deleted this key and rebooted my PC windows update was working.


Hope this was somehow usefull

ATI Radeon X1300 wont work with my Vista 32 bit


Try this.

Download the unified Radeon drivers from ATI's website... do not use Windows update. Get the Drivers Only package. for Vista 32-bit

If you can get to the desktop:
Uninstall the existing display drivers by using the remove hardware utility. Whatever they are... remove them. Reboot. Windows will try to reinstall the drivers on the next boot. If it allows you cancel the installation at any time during install do it. Run the downloaded package from ATI. Reboot.

If you can't get to the desktop:
Press F8 when booting and enter safe mode with networking. Download the ATI drivers from ati.com for Vista 32-bit.
Uninstall the display drivers. Reboot. Should take you to the desktop on the next boot so you can run the install program.
