Open My Computer , look for the cd unit - it will be identified as D , most likely. If when you enter the disk in it the unit name doesn't change to the name of the disk then the cd unit is dead and must be replaced. If it changes then most likely the autostart has been disabled. Leave it this way, it's an additional security feature.
To run the disk just open it after the name has changed, find a file named after the program in question that ends in .exe and launch it (double click on it).

Did turbo tax material for 2015 get hacked?


My understanding is not that they were hacked but people were filing for tax returns under another name and getting multiple refunds. This was discovered when doubles of the same return were coming in of the same name. Turbo Tax was not going to be accepted as a return medium but I do not if that was taken care of or not.

Need insructions for inserting a Turbo Tax disc. How is it done?


Insert the CD into your cd/dvd drive on your computer (print side up/shiny side down).
Close drive.
select Run from the autoplay menu that pops up, this will install Turbo Tax on your PC.
If autoplay does not start, open my computer and right click the drive with the disc in it, select auto play, then run or install.
after insallation you should have a icon on your desktop for Turbo Tax.

Let me know If this helps
Post as a reply or comment and I'll be notified.

I was installing Turbo Tax 2008 and Windows XP crashed


Madam/Sir --

I none of the mode is working you need to boot from the cd to do any further steps.
inorder to boot from the cd you need to go to the bios and change the boot sequence to boot order.
It varies system to system once to you boot from the cd try to log on to recovery console and do a manual system restore by following the below steps - :
Step 1:
***************************

Boot with the windows XP CD

At "Welcome to setup screen" Press R

Select the appropriate path for windows and press enter
If it asks you for the administrator password, normaly there is not password but if you have a password type the administrator password and
press enter or just hit enter

We will now see the Prompt c:\windows>

Step 2:
***************************
cd system32\config

ren system system.old
ren software software.old
ren SAM SAM.old
ren security security.old
ren default default.old

Then type cd Type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press Enter

If you get "access denied" (Error) then

Restart the computer by type Exit and get back to recovery console

type cd \ and it will display C:\>
type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press Enter

Step 3:
***************************
Type dir
It will list you restore points
(e.g. RP1, RP2, RP3, RP4, etc...)

Select the one from the list except the last one
Say RP4

· type cd RP3 (or RP2 or RP1 or RPn) and enter

· type cd snapshot and enter

· type copy _registry_user_.default c:\windows\system32\config\default and enter

· type copy _registry_machine_security c:\windows\system32\config\security and
enter

· type copy _registry_machine_software c:\windows\system32\config\software and
enter

· type copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system and enter

· type copy _registry_machine_sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam and enter

· type exit and enter

The computer restarts and the system will be
Successfully restored

Unable to load program


did you get the right operating system for turbo tax...that might be for MAC...and you are using PC. check the system requirements...

second open the auto run file in cd using note pad..and you will see which directory the setup or install exe is.

or if you are upgrading to delux edition there might be upgrade command in your current version of turbo tax...good luck

Windows XP Home Edition Crashed After Loading Service Pack 2


hey coco

nothing happens when you try to use the recovery console right by pressing "r".

try this again and again , sometimes it idles but its still running, if the error appears, restat again.

some corruptions maybe beyond our control and sometimes the only solution for this is to recover the inportant files you have on that HD and do a reformat...
