Is you Windows 7 pre-installed with the computer? If not, please insert the Windows 7 disk, and try to run "Repair Install".

1. Start Windows 7, and log on to an administrator account.

2. Disable any 3rd party firewall, antivirus, or other security program to avoid it from possibly preventing the repair upgrade installation of Windows 7.

3. Place your Windows 7 installation DVD into the DVD drive, while still in Windows 7 (Step 1), and click on the Run setup.exe option in the AutoPlay window from within the currently installed Windows 7. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: If the AutoPlay window does not open, then open the drive folder in Computer and run the setup.exe file.

4. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.

5. Click on the Install Now button to start the installation. (See screenshot below)

6. Uncheck the I want to help make Windows installation better box (unless you would like to ), and click on the Go online to get the latest updates for installation option. (See screenshot below)

7. Windows 7 will now check online for and install any available installation updates. (See screenshots below)

8. Check the I accept the license terms box and click on Next. (See screenshot below)

9. Click on the Upgrade option. (See screenshot below)

10. The installation of Windows 7 will now begin. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: During the installation process, your screen may flash and computer will restart a few times.

11. After the final restart, you will see this screen for a moment. (See screenshot below)

12. Type in your Windows 7 product key number. (See screenshot below step 13)

13. Uncheck the Automatically activate Windows when I'm online box unchecked, then click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: You can activate Windows 7 later after you make sure it is running properly. (See step 20 below)
If you chose to automatically activate Windows online when you set up your computer, automatic activation begins trying to activate your copy of Windows three days after you log on for the first time.

14. Click on Use recommended settings. (See screenshot below)

15. Select your time zone and set your time and date settings, then click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)

16. Click on the option for your computer's location to select the correct network location type settings to be applied for that location. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: It is best to select Public location for the best security.

17. Windows 7 will now prepare your desktop to startup. (See screenshots below)

18. Check to see if you are missing any user files. If you are, then you can copy them from the C:\Windows.old or the hidden protected operating system C:\$INPLACE.~TR and C:\WINDOWS.~Q backup folders. (See screenshot below)

19. If everythig checks out in step 18, then you can run Disk Cleanup (step 6 at this link). You will need to click on the Clean up system files button first, and then check the Files discarded by Windows upgrade, Previous Windows installations, and Windows upgrade log files boxes. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: This will delete the C:\Windows.old, C:\$INPLACE.~TR and C:\WINDOWS.~Q folders from step 18 above.

20. Refresh your Windows Experience Index (WEI) score.

21. When done, all you will need to do is to activate Windows 7, and make sure that your security programs are enabled again.

Guys i hv anokia 5000d and whenever i try to run any downloaded anti virus,it says"java lang:security exeption.access denied"plz some help me on how to remove the virus on my phone


It means you are trying to do sth that your phone OS does not give permission. I prescribe you these:
-Try to add these permissions to app:
javax.microedition.io.Connector.http
javax.microedition.io.Connector.https

-go to the application (don't open it) then click options > application access> data access > add edit data>set it to "ask everytime".
Try these and then come here again for controls

Can you give me a link to download a driver for Protax DC500t camera that works on windows7? The disk I have only works on windows xp Thanks, Peter


If your Windows7 is x32 version, then your driver should work in it. But if you have x64 version, you'll get some trouble to install driver for XP in Win7 PCs. I've stuck the same problem like you, but my case was modem problem. Programs like game or other application that can be installed in XP usually can be installed in Win7 64 bit and extracted in Program Files (x86), but driver case is an exception.
I've search via google but I got nothing. Actually, there is a way to install XP driver in Win7 which is use XP Mode in Win7, but you must upgrade your OS to Win7 Ultimate (I think, see microsoft website to make sure) so you can use this mode.
or
you can install two OS in your PC, Win7 and Win XP maybe. When you want to install driver for XP or if you want to do some work related to this driver, you can start up with XP OS, but if you want to do other work, use Win7.
This is so unconvenient, but better than you can't connect your camera to your PC.
Good luck Peter !

Hope this help and be kind to rate my answer please.

My iBook G4 continues to run slowly and/or freeze


Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.

Vanishing restore points


Well known problem .... if you have a multi boot system with Xp and Vista/Win7 everytime you boot into XP the Vista/Win7 restore points will be deleted.

This only happens if you use the Windows Boot Manager though. I would suggest using a third party Boot Manager to get over the problem.'

I recommend OSL2000 loader which can handle just about any OS on any partition on any disk
