Hello,

Firstly, what software did you install of recent? I advice you uninstall the software right away, but if you are not allowed to uninstall it, power off your system and restart it after a while, the message will disappear, now uninstall the software that was install that is not compatible with your windows otherwise the message will keep coming..

Take care

    Hello,

    Click on the start, go to control panel and click, a new window will come up, go to add or remove and click to open, it will open all the installed programs on your computer, go to the software or program you want to uninstall and click on it to uninstall it.

    Follow the instruction it will ask, like do you want to uninstall, click yes and so on.

    Take care.

How can i get rid of driver starforce as it is comming up blocked frm my pc vista


Star force is a protection system used mainly in protecting games and other software against illegal copying. I'm not sure exactly what you mean. If you are asking to help get rid of software protection, I'm afraid I cannot help. If however, you have the star force software on your computer (don't know why you would), the following link may help you

I've installed Cossacks(the Art of War) in Windows 7 Professional. HP-Pavilion Slimline s5710F.The game come up with double vision still can't play,everythink runs together.


I think there is a form of copy protection that installs a driver onto your computer. It was originally designed to be used on Windows XP only. In order to fix this issue, you'll need to contact the game developer for an update or patch that allows you to install the game. There is no other work-around for this, because Starforce contains a driver that Vista will not accept because it is built for another operating system. Starforce protected games are well known to be one of very few XP titles that will not work on Vista without an update or patch, due to its design.



    You can give this a go too... http://m0001.gamecopyworld.com/games/pc_cossacks.shtml

      Blue screen. 0x0000008e (0xc0000005,0x80409A88,0xf789e360,0x00000000.


      This error occurs due to the following reasons: Faulty RAM, registry errors, incompatible drivers, hardware failures, faulty BIOS configuration, Viruses.
      Follow the steps below to avoid the BSOD error message occurs again.
      Check whether the RAM installed in your computer complies with the motherboard specs. Replace the RAM if needed. You can also check the systems with a friend's RAM to know whether the error message is due to RAM.
      Use a free registry cleaner/fixer software available to clean/repair your windows registry. (Ccleaner is good at this)
      Do not install incompatible device drivers. Install only Microsoft Signed drivers. Update your existing driver software from the corresponding device manufacturer's website.
      If you have installed/changed new hardware, check whether it is supported by your system. Also check whether it is installed properly. If needed test the systems without the faulty hardware. Check whether you've installed correct/signed driver software for that particular hardware.
      If you have reconfigured your system BIOS, set it to default/optimal/recommended settings and test the system. Disable features like BIOS caching.
      Use an original and up to date antivirus system like Norton, McAfee or Kaspersky and run a full systems scan.
      Keep your windows updated with current patches and fixes to protect the systems from unwanted troubles.
      All the best.

      usually windows seven it takes most drivers automatically ...so go to device manager and choose one by one any drivers that you find in yellow ..and click on automatic update ( update driver ) it will search with an wizard auto...if the driver for any device is not present it will inform about ..and you have the choice either to try with the same driver from Vista ...(usually works) or disable if you do not need the device...

      I think the game is not compatable with vista like many other softwares, before you buy the game cd you need to check that it is compatable with vista OS.

      You have a pretty nice computer no doubt about that bro but the problem here is that laptops are not design with major gaming involved. I think if you want to play games and have the full experience of a computer game you should try built yourself a computer with a better graphics card.

      Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...


      yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
