Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Windows search option not working and unable to repair

Am working on XP Pro and for some reason, the seacrh option is not working. When I click for the option, I get a blank screen first, followed by the screen (when tried twice or more) but with all fields blank and buttons missing in empty fields. I wish I could send you the screen shot. Else, the machine is working fine, except that it takes too long time to load programmes at first time. I tried to repair windows booting with my cd, but the repair is not working either. After I press 'R' following the earlier steps while trying to repir it from cd,, I get the black screen with C:\ WINDOWS and asking me which windows etc.... Any help?

Ok sounds like a hijack to me, do a malware and virus scan. Have you shared a doc. or submitted a word doc to any particular sight or taken a link from a site and out int o a word doc and saved it to your hard drive, if so delete it and then remove it from your recycle bin. My true guess is that it is a MS virus.
as you know some links try to hijack your browser to make yours use there site, happen a lot on game or betting sights, i.e. horse racing and fantasy football,baseball sights. and if you hear your cpu running in background when your doing absolutely nothing it is normall a dialler for a sight gathering info and racking up hits on there or affiliated sight. if any of this sound familiar to you run the scan and check your registry i will venture a guess you have them in your registry also .

Hope it helps

I need to find a set up disc


What operating system set up disc are you referring to ?

Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:



http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html



"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download

http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.

Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.

g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window.

Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.

My ksuser dll for windows xp profesional


Just boot from the xp professional cd and run the recovery console.
Download the operating system from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en
or
if you have it, install it using the procedure below:Boot From the Windows XP CD
  • You must boot from your XP . Please make sure it is the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer (ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)

    you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.

    Step 3: System repair steps
  • A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.

    simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

    Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console. Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.

Choose F8 to continue.

  • Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

    If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.
That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts

I am having AVG Pro. on my Vista. Now I con't use


Go to AVG's homepage and look for a removal tool. Uninstall the software and download Microsoft Security Essentials...It's free and perpetual. You may also consider upgrading to Win 7 or downgrading to XP. Vista is the reason many folks are back to XP and Microsoft's reason for creating Win 7.

Says my windows xp pro is not genuine and also have no audio driver


There's no reason to 'purchase a genuine Windows7 upgrade package' if your XP Pro is legit, you simply need to find your CoA. XP Pro is supported until 2014 (assuming this lil' rock we reside on lasts that long).
Once you have your Certificate of Authenticity in hand, it's simply a matter of starting your system with your XP cd in the drive, and choosing the 'repair a previous windows installation' option...It'll ask for your 25 character cd key, which is on your CoA. If you run into problems during the activation stage, use the 'telephone a Microsoft representitive' option, and just tell the rep why you found it necessary to re-activate (major changes to system hardware, etc.)

Xp pro sp3 setup problem for optional windows components


It looks like you have a copy of Zone Alarm on your PC and Windows XP Pro SP3 is not liking it. One thing that you can try is to disable Zone Alarm by right clicking on the icon that it creates on the lower right hand corner of the screen and see if you can find a "disable" or "shutdown" option. After doing so, then try to install again. Another thing that you can try is to completely remove Zone Alarm, try to install SP3 again, and if it installs, re-install Zone Alarm. However, I think the easiest path is to disable Zone Alarm temporarily. Let me know if this helps you or not.
