Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

A month ago I reformatted my HP desk top from Windows XP to Windows 7 (which included the IE 8 application); everything seemed fine. More recently I have begun to experience browser problems when attempting to use some functions in various applications. For example, when visiting a given web site and attempting to donwload a PDF file, my system won't respond (no action, no message) when I left-click on the link (which would usually open the file). The system does however, allow me to open the command window by right-clicking. Additionally, most of my menu bar options are now "dead" in MS Outlook Web Access (they weren't dead when I first installed Windows 7/IE 8, but something happened that I am unaware of that affected that application. I have a Dell lap top in the house that has also installed the same software and has not experienced similar problems. I have tried to set my Internet optionsback to their default values but to no avail in fixing my current issues.

Windows XP Mode in Windows 7


Secret No More: Revealing Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 Over a month ago, we were briefed about a secret Microsoft technology that we were told would be announced alongside the Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) and would ship in final form simultaneously with the final version of Windows 7. This technology, dubbed Windows XP Mode (XPM, formerly Virtual Windows XP or Virtual XP, VXP), dramatically changes the compatibility story for Windows 7 and, we believe, has serious implications for Windows development going forward. Here's what's happening.


5614895.jpg
Windows XP Mode running Word 2003 under XP and Word 2007 under Windows 7.


XP Mode consists of the Virtual PC-based virtual environment and a fully licensed copy of Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3). It will be made available, for free, to users of Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions via a download from the Microsoft web site. (That is, it will not be included in the box with Windows 7, but is considered an out-of-band update, like Windows Live Essentials.) XPM works much like today's Virtual PC products, but with one important exception: XPM does not require you to run the virtual environment as a separate Windows desktop. Instead, as you install applications inside the virtual XP environment, they are published to the host (Windows 7) OS as well. (With shortcuts placed in the Start Menu.) That way, users can run Windows XP-based applications (like IE 6) alongside Windows 7 applications under a single desktop.
Obviously, XPM has huge ramifications for Windows going forward. By removing the onus of legacy application compatibility from the OS, Microsoft can strip away deadwood technology from future versions of Windows at a speedier clip, because customers who need to run older applications can simply do so with XPM. For Windows 7 specifically, XPM is a huge convenience, especially for Microsoft's corporate customers, who can of course control XPM behavior via standard Microsoft administration and management technologies like Active Directory (AD) and Group Policy (GP). And it significantly recasts the Windows 7 compatibility picture. Before, Microsoft could claim that Windows 7 would be at least as compatible as Windows Vista. Now, they can claim almost complete Windows XP compatibility, or almost 100 percent compatibility with all currently running Windows applications.

I recently upgraded to Windows 7. Since then I have not been able to log into the web application for the v755. Is this a Windows 7 security issue and if so how do I get around this? Tks, sheila


Your web application may be compatible with older IE only.
Use compatibility mode on your IE 8. or
Try to Download and install another browser e.g. Firefox. Try the web application on it.

After installing Internet Explorer 8.0, I now can't get my hpscanjet 8250 to function. Coincendence or a direct cause? Thanks Harold Dietz


Uninstall IE 8 and reinstall IE 7, even if it reverts back to IE 7 when IE 8 is uninstalled.

So far there is no patch or other solution from HP.

I am having the same problem with an HP Scanjet 2300c. It's a low-end scanner, I know; but it worked just fine until I installed IE 8. Neither Microsoft nor HP have anything about the problem on their Web sites--nothing that I've found, anyway. That leaves only this solution.

Oh. You'll have similar problems if you're running Windows XP and install Service Pack 3. If you install both SP3 AND IE 8, the problems are compounded. Stay with Service Pack 2 and IE 7 until Microsoft and HP can get their stuff together and decide to resolve the problems--whenever they have nothing better to do, that is. They'll take their sweet time about it. That's one thing you can count on with HP and Microsoft. Money comes first, customer satisfaction comes in at number 6 or 7. Maybe it's number 8, I forget...

XP Pro desktop: I open web page and screen closes back to desktop


Could be either a virus or compatibility issue with an update. Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Click in the SHOW UPDATES at the top of the screen. Scroll down until you find Windows Internet Explorer 7. Look for the newest date of Updates to IE. Uninstall the last update by clicking on it and selecting remove. Then test IE. If this does not work, look for the last Windows update and do the same.
