Problem:" you may be victim


maybe you are not using a genuine Windows operating system. you have turned on the automatic update from your PC, and microsoft detected that you are not using a licensed one. I suggest, do a reformat and reinstall a genuine Windows, or if you are planning to use the unlicensed one, turn off the automatic updates.

I got a mircosoft update and not my machine wont boot up? I cant even get my bios to show up? thanks in advance


Everyone who has had the MS Autoupdate ON have fallen victim to some **** update that screwes up their PC/hardware.
The most common is motherboard failure thru some firmware updating the BIOS, Onboard sound driver chip firmware update, Network card driver/firmware update, VGA firmware update etc etc.....
all these **** updates are done so that MS can sell more genuin OS thru new sale of PCs HWs etc....as once ur MB/HD failes u have no option but to buy a new one discarding the old one.....all these are modern mkting techniques used by some reputed co like IBM/Compaq/HP/Dell etc along with MS as the main culprit....how do i know all these.....ha ha ha...
i am ex IBMr

I have windows vista and MS office preinstalled on my laptop and ms word is not working.


Dear sir,

Generally Preinstalled windows Vista comes with 60 days trial MS office 2007.After 60 days trial expires,& it doesnt work.So you have to buy new office 2007 genuine software.
We cant suggest any pirated software because software piracy is theft.
so solution is buy MS office Genuine Versions.

Good luck

Updating Quickbooks on Vista OS


There are a couple of things going on here.
First, and most important, Qb 2005 was not designed to run on Vista. Vista was barley even in the planning stages when 2005 was programmed. Vista will probably run it, but in a compatability mode ( pretending to be an older version of Windows), but updating the program will be nightmarish at best because the updates are pointing to files that are either 1) no longer used by Windows or 2) the versions and functionality of the files has changed.
My best advice- restore the backup on an XP box, or get a later version of QuickBooks that will run on Vista.

Blue Screen of Death.........


Vista is not market friendly yet, don't know if it ever will. U should be able to goto the program manufacturer website and get a vista version, sometimes like Norton, they don't have a vista version until later and then want U to buy the new program. Rule of thumb, use windows programs for a windows os.

Can't install Strat-O-Matic Baseball


This is a Vista thing that MS still has not fixed. However, when the search for driver page pops up click on manual specify location & point it to, (c:\windows\system32 & check the search subfolders), checkbox. Can't say if this will work for you or not. Some it does. Vista is a devil in a blue dress!
