If I can decipher what you mean, it sounds like you're using Windows Vista Ultimate, and it is reverting to Reduced Functionality Mode. This means the installation of Windows Vista that you're running failed to pass validation with Microsoft. Please see this page for Microsoft's steps to remedy this issue.

More Tips For Windows 7


So I been Messing Around With Windows 7 and Created a list of new things for people that don't know much about windows 7. <br /> <span> <p><b>Minimize (Almost) All Windows:</b> <b>Win + Home</b><br /> <p>This combo lets you send all open windows packing--except the one that's currently active. Sure beats clicking Minimize on a bunch of individual windows. When you tap the shortcut a second time, it restores all previously open windows.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Make Windows Transparent: Win + Space</b><br /> <p>This is the keyboard equivalent of mousing over the transparency tool in the right corner of the System Tray--great for those times when you need to something on the desktop (like a gadget) but don't want to minimize all your windows. After tapping <i>Win-Space</i>, your windows will stay see-through until you let go of the Windows key.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Quick-Launch Taskbar Apps: Win + (1-9)</b><br /> <p>As you know, Windows 7 makes it a snap to "pin" frequently used programs to the taskbar. But did you also know that these programs are automatically assigned a number and corresponding Windows-key shortcut? Just press <i>Windows-1</i> to launch the first pinned program (the one closest to the Start button), <i>Windows-2</i> to launch the next one, and so on. Fastest app-launching known to man! Except, of course, for this...<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Quick-Launch Any App: Hotkey</b><br /> <p>Like Vista before it, Windows 7 lets you assign a quick-launch hotkey to any installed program. Just right-click the program's icon, choose <i>Properties</i>, and then click the <i>Shortcut</i> tab. Click once in the <i>Shortcut key field</i>, then press the hotkey combo you want to assign (<i>Ctrl-Shift-H</i>, for instance). Click <i>OK</i> and you're done! Assuming you have a good memory, app launching doesn't get any faster than this.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Dock Active Windows: Win + Left or Right Arrow</b><br /> <p>A great shortcut for users with widescreen monitors, this combo docks the active window to the left or right half of the screen (depending on which arrow you tap), at the same time maximizing it top-to-bottom.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Magnify Your View: Win + (+)</b><br /> <p>Windows 7's built-in magnifier lets you zoom in wherever you place your cursor. Just tap <i>Win-plus</i> (that's the Windows key and the plus key) to enable the magnifier and set a 200% zoom level. When you mouse to any edge of the screen, your view scrolls accordingly. The more you tap the keys, the higher the zoom. Of course, you can just as easily zoom out again with <i>Win-minus</i>.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Open Presentation Settings: Win + P</b><br /> <p>Good news for business users constantly struggling to get Windows to cooperate with<a href="http://www.pcworld.com/products/home_theater/projectors.html">projectors</a>: A quick tap of <i>Win-P</i> activates a monitor-settings panel. Click <i>Duplicate</i> or <i>Projector only</i> to send your display to the big screen, or <i>Extend</i> if you've connected a second monitor and want extra screen real estate.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Create a New Folder: Ctrl + Shift + N</b><br /> <p>Forget the old way of creating new folders. In Windows 7, all it takes is a tap of <i>Ctrl-Shift-N</i>. This works in any open Explorer window, but also on the desktop. After the new folder appears, just type in a name as usual and hit <i>Enter</i>.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Bring Gadgets to the Fore: Win + G</b><br /> <p>Now that Windows' gadgets are no longer relegated to the Sidebar, they're free to sit anywhere on your desktop. Of course, that means they can get obscured by other windows. As you now know, a tap of <i>Win-Space</i> makes those windows temporarily see-through, but what if you want to put the gadgets on <i>top</i> of your windows? No problem: Just tap <i>Win-G</i>.<br /></span>

How to add Windows 7 new keyboard shortcuts to Windows Vista.


If you have liked the new hotkey keyboard shortcuts which Windows 7 has introduced, you can add the same in Windows Vista or XP too

Download and use an app called Windows 7 Shortcuts. Shortcuts Included:
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it's maximized
Partially Included:
Win+Space: Note from the developer: AHK won't allow multiple windows to be made transparent easily. Therefore, I've changed it to make the active window transparent until it is released.

Have a new dell inspiron 5305 cannot get pogo to load


Sorry. I don't chat. I am one of the free answers. You will have to see if a VISTA version of POGO is available. Sometimes you can tell a program to; "run as.." . Such as tell it to : run as WIn xp or Win 98. It is under properties. If you can load the program into windows then right click the program. Left click properties then left click compatabilities. There you will see "RUN as". If that does not work or if the program will not run you will have to search to see it it is written in a VISTA version,or if you can upgrade to a vista version of the program..

I can not install OfficeSuite. I have Windows Vista home Premium. I had downloaded updates all afternoon and it still shows error 1719 Window installer not correctly installed. Help!


Download:Windows Vista Service Pack 1

I tried personally in WIN-XP worked same applies to Vista.

Error Message:
Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed. Translation:
This message might appear when you’re trying to add or remove a program that installs via a Windows Installer MSI (Microsoft Software Installation) package file. The Windows Installer Service is the standard method for installing and uninstalling software on Windows XP. It keeps track of all of the components that need to be installed for a particular program to run and ensures that any files that are shared by programs are not removed when one of those programs is uninstalled. The Error 1719 is an indication that some Windows Installer Service files are missing or have become damaged. Solution:
The first thing to try is re-registering Windows Installer in the Windows registry. Make sure that no other programs are running and then click Start, Run, type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK. Next, click Start, Run, type misexec /regserver in the Open field, and click OK. Restart your computer and try installing or uninstalling again.

If you’re still getting the error message, the next step is to try reinstalling the Windows Installer files. In order to do this, you’ll first need to rename the existing files.

First, click Start, Run, and type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK.

In My Computer, click Search and locate the following three files: msi.dll, msiexec.exe, and msihnd.dll. They are hidden files so you’ll need to select Search Hidden Files And Folders under More Advanced Options. When you’ve found the files, rename them, by removing the .dll and .exe extensions and replacing them with an .old extension(for example msi.dll becomes msi.old).

Once you’ve renamed the files, WinXP will automatically replace them with a new copy from the dllcache (a hidden folder where copies of important system files are kept in case you mistakenly delete or rename critical system files). Restart your computer and try to install or uninstall the program again.

Finally, if neither of the above processes corrects the problem, boot into Safe Mode, and go through the above steps again, first re-registering and then reinstalling.

Vista is running slow, and you have to let it run for about ten minutes before you can acutally open up a program and i get a lot of program not responding messages. here lately it has been having trouble...


sounds like you are suffering from VistaItis, where the api's and dll's are not making it happen. You may need to reinstall most of your driver sets..
