Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

The computers we purchased had Vista already on them, we are having a few problems which include the fact that no one can open our templates that we use when they could so so before we got the new PC's. Also, on my one, I have to re-set the time on it up to 3 times a day, it will lose anything up to 10 hours in less than one hour.

Check that you have the Daylight savings in the time settings checked, or try unchecking it and then setting the time.

Also check the time set in the bios on boot up, it may be set differently.

As for Vista, Good luck. Alot of people dont have it yet so they have trouble using files made on a fvista system. MS office has a compatability install i think, check MS website.

Vista is new and has alot of bugs that havent been fixed yet, also alot of WinXP programs and games arent compatible so they wont run on Vista.

Either they have to upgrad or you have to downgrade.
Both options arent fun, I never buy a new operating system untill mine becomes obsolete. Since you got new computyers you where forced to have it installed. You could always re-install a copy of XP on the system and then wait to put vista on till more people have it.

Microsoft does this on purpose so everyone is forced to by their products even if they dont want or need it.

XP runs fie now, so why upgrade?
because MS wants to stuff there pockets.

Good luck

How to disable the Sidebar for all users in VISTA.


While the VISTA sidebar can be a helpful tool in the home environment, in the business world it is often viewed as a resource hog which needs to be removed.

In order to keep the sidebar from starting on a computer in VISTA, click on the start menu and open a ren dialog. Type gpedit.msc and hit enter. This will bring up the local GPO snap in. Under the heading Local Computer Policy, expand the section labeled Administrative Templates and then expand Windows Components. In this section you will find a folder named Windows Sidebar. In the Right hand window, double click on the option labeled Turn Off Windows Sidebar and check Enable. Click OK and restart your computer. That's it! Now everyone who logs into that computer will have the sidebar turned off by default.

Sorry to tell you that the best way is to reinstall your operating vista (windows vista) as you can see it is already corrupted. So you better send your computer to the nearest computer shop for proper installation of operating system.

My system restore has been turned off by a group policy "whatever that means"


Resolution 1. Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press Enter
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore
In the right-pane:
  • Delete the value DisableConfig
  • Delete the value DisableSR
3. Exit the Registry Editor.
In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.
1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC
2. Navigate to this path:
-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore
3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured
4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured




For standalone Windows Vista systems, use these steps:
Using the Group Policy Editor
If your edition of Windows Vista includes the Group Policy Editor snap-in (gpedit.msc), follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type gpedit.msc and press ENTER
2. Go to the following branch:
Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | System Restore 3. Double-click Turn off Configuration and set it to Not configured.
Note: If the above setting is already set to Not configured, set it to Enabled and click Apply. Then revert back the setting to Not configured, and click Apply, OK.
4. Exit the Group Policy Editor.
Using the Registry Editor
1. Click Start, type regedit.exe and press ENTER
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore 3. In the right-pane, delete the value named DisableConfig
4. Exit the Registry Editor.

If you set the Turn of configuration option to Enabled, the option to configure System Restore on the Configuration Interface disappears. If the Turn off Configuration setting is disabled, the configuration interface is still visible, but all System Restore configuration defaults are enforced, and the Create button is grayed out. If you set it to Not configured, the configuration interface for System Restore remains, and the user has the ability to configure System Restore.

I have windows vista. I am trying to find where I print my labels and how I get them printed. Isn't there a template already in Microsoft word??????/ help help Bee


hi bee, MS word will help you by opening help if it's not already opened. Type in the search window ( label templates ) & click search. MS word should hull its butt to the internet & find you a verity to pick from. If you are running anti-virus software with firewall you may be prompted to allow MS word access to the internet.

Enjoy & best regards.
