    I had this frustrating problem also. But it's fixed now!! I followed Willywonkers solution and all is working again.
    Although at 6- it's "Data Execution Prevention" on my version of Windows Vista.
    Thank You very much Wonkers for such useful information

Your complaint is the reason that Windows Vista has mostly gone down in history as a "lemon" operating system.. It really wasn't all that bad... but its reputation is that bad. Still, if your computer is a really good one, I would recommend having the Windows 7 operating system installed in it. I'll tell you what has helped me the most on my old Windows Vista..... besides uninstalling software that I had a suspicion was conflicting with the rest of my programs.... and that was installing the Eusing Registry Cleaner.. It's free and seems to do a good job. Download, install and run Eusing through its paces a couple of times.. I'll bet you see an improvement.. Also, you might want to uninstall any programs you know you don't need. It also might help for you to, in your bottom, left-hand corner, run the msconfig program, and work on your Start Menu.. You'll find all kinds of garbage trying to start up as soon as you start up your computer... and much of it is totally unnecessary on startup and causes your computer to run like molasses.. You might want to get some assistance from a knowledgeable friend before trying something like this... If you wanted to try it on your own, there are a lot of helpful sites on the web. To uninstall most undesirable programs, you need to get into the Control Panel.. then on into something like "Programs & features".... and start uninstalling... BUT ONLY what you know you don't want or need. NOW, what you might want to consider is to go treat yourself to a new computer... You'll find a lot of really good computers at some really good prices... and you know you deserve a new one..

We just have a HTC Touch HD, what happened to us was, at first we found there problem with Exchange Sync, we tried to sync the phone with Vista but failed(even can't recongize the device), then we moved to...

Older versions of Windows mobile have been having trouble with newer versions of activesync, and older versions of activesync don't run well with Vista. Your companies IT guys have a lot to do with it too as newer security policies can stop phones from syncing using exchange. That's why XP worked...the internet dropping off however was probably not dorectly related. It sounds like it is trying to tether it's Internet from the link to the PC. If this is the case Internet will start working again if you hook it to the PC running XP. Then you just need to find the option to disable tethering and use the provider data service instead.

I have Windows Vista also, but my installation screen came up. If nothing pops up when you put it in, I would suggest opening "My Computer" and right clicking the icon with FinePix and starting it that way. Or, maybe you could check the Fujifilm site and see if you can download the software off the internet.

Color scheme has gone to windows vista basic


Whenever anyone try to run a program which is not compatible with windows aero vista changes the color scheme to vista basic to prevent conflicts.
This is a normal problem and there is nothing to worry about it.
Sometimes even dream scene is stopped due to incompatibility.

If you have anyother question you can ask me.

Keep geeting an error message another IP address has been detected. I have a wireless router & laptop, and a desktop whcih the the main computer.

If you have Vista,
  2. Under Network and Internet, click VIEW NETWORK STAUTS AND TASKS
  3. On the side panel, click MANAGE NETWORK CONNECTIONS
  4. Right click your Wireless network, and click PROPERTIES
  5. Single-Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
  6. Click Properties
  7. Write down all the infromation in case you need to type it in again later.
  8. Click "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
Sorry, but I cannot help with XP at the moment.
Good luck!
