    Thank you so very much! I have only been trying to get my printer issue resolved since mid-Friday evening. It is now 3:15 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Sunday morning! I couldn't rest until I found out what the problem was with my printer!

    I am a nursing student, and depend very heavily on the convenience of having a computer and printer at home. This way I can do schoolwork at any time, day or night without a worry. I'm so glad I persisted until I found the solution.

    I'm even more glad that this information was posted. It was very easy to follow. The directions were very clear. Although I have a fairly good working knowledge of computers, I am totally new to removing things from my registry. You made it a piece of cake to do. Thanks so much again! Take care, and keep up the great and helpful work! It's needed!

    Sincerely,

    alt02376

Windows xp sevice pack 2 product key


The Service Pack alone does not have a product key as such. It is an update for those that are running Genuine Microsoft XP.

If you mean Windows XP with Service Pack 2, then you need to purchase it from a reputable source such as Microsoft or a Microsoft authorised Vendor.

Need flash drive for my Windows 98SE


if it's a sandisk cruiser micro U3 2Gig flash stick God help you.

windows 98 se had serious USB issues and lack of support of any kind for USB 2.0

USB 2.0 can be done ONLY if you have USB 2.0 ports ( chip )

and ONLY if you have loaded XP professional 2002 WITH service pack 2 ,,, it's time to slap these vendors around for lying and lying about USB 2.0

the bright side is , it's not broken , more than likely an XP pro 2002 with service pack 2 will see the stick right off the bat

if that happens , then you know it's the fault of the computer that can't see the durn thing.

it's time to slap sandisk up side the head for lack of clear cut documentation on this issue.

for example my vista machine can't see mine anymore but my XP professional 2002 with service pack 2 sure the heck can.

that just goes to show you vista is stupid and so was windows 98 and aren't we all tired of this ****.
