I own a vista laptop and I cannot download skins, themes and some screensavers. Please advise.


How To Change The Theme In Windows Vista The one good thing about Windows Vista Themes is that customization is entirely possible. And when you can customize you can naturally personalize. That’s right. Vista allows you to select your own themes in a few easy steps. This allows you to tinker with your computer to make it more attractive and less monotonous – when you want it and how you want it.
A Windows Vista theme is simply a group of customized tweeks that span the entire gamut of menu appearance, icons, colors, fonts, screen savers, background, and yes – even paints!
Let’s start with your desktop because it’s the most logical place to start. To select a desktop theme, perform the following steps:
• go to your desktop. In any blank area, right click.
• scroll down to “personalize” and click.
• a dialogue box will come up that says: “Personalize appearance and sounds.” Right below it are seven headers. Choose “theme” which is the sixth item, or second to the last item.
• a dialog box appears with the title “theme settings.”
• under “theme”, you have a small box with a drop down menu. If you click on the arrow, Windows Vista gives you four choices: current theme, Windows Vista, Windows Classic and browse (the browse option allows you to get a theme that you saved in a specific folder. When you choose browse, Vista automatically takes you to your downloads folder where you saved the theme).
• when you click on any of the four choices, you get a preview of the theme. Choose one by clicking “apply” or “OK”. If you don’t like any of what you see and decide to stick to what you have, simply click “cancel” or close the dialog box.
Windows Vista Themes: Few Things Worth Noting
• Windows Vista does not come with a large pre-built bundle of themes. This shouldn’t stop you from creating your own. You can still change the background (or wallpaper), colors, screen saver and how your menu will look. Save what you’ve created by clicking the Save As button. This button is in the dialog box we mentioned earlier called “Theme Settings.”
• Don’t confuse Windows Vista themes with the pre-built themes in Word 2007, Power Point 2007 and Excel 2007. Each of these programs has its own themes bundle.
• If you happen to like a theme you saw on the Web, make sure that your virus program is up-to-date before you download a theme. Some viruses are disguised as themes so be careful.
Remember that even if Word, Excel, and PowerPoint already have predefined document themes, you can create your own by customizing an existing document theme and then saving it as a custom document theme.
If you’re really into themes and like to create your own for fun, then you must be a “skinning fan” (themes are sometimes called skins). According to Andy Rathbone, noted Windows expert, you can use a third party program like WindowBlinds and can download any theme they have at a very modest fee. What’s even better is some of these themes are free. By typing “Windows Vista Themes” in any search engine, you’ll get a whole array of company names that specialize in Vista themes. But like we said, be careful when downloading.

How to Unlock Windows Vista Password?


I would like to introduce "Windows Login Recovery". It not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive to recover windows password. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm. You can download it from http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com

Software installation using vista basic


Very strange.

Do you get any error messages?
Are you able to download the programmes?

Vista works differently to previous versions of Windows, because of much improved protection. In essence you can no longer install programmes anywhere you want and you can no longer install programmes unless you have permission to do so.

There is a service called UAC which stands for User Access Control, which prevents normal users from installing software - only administrators are allowed to install software.

Even if you are the only user, you are not regarded as the administrator unless you say I am the admin.

When you click on something to download, at the top of the page a small wide yellow box will appear, right click on it and download the file.

Then when you run the installer another box will open asking if it can make the changes you want - you may need to give your password to continue.

Then install everything as their defaults. and all should be well.

Some older programmes do have problems - download them and SAVE then to your documents, then right click on the installer - you have a number of new options...

Run as Administrator (which may solve your problems)

Trouble shoot compatibility - which can resolve some older programme problems - you can set the system up to emulate Windows XP etc... which will solve most problems.

And if the installation fails it will ask if you want to re-install using default settings - say yes.

Finally, make sure you are downloading Vista compatible software and that it is the right software for your Operating system. You can not install 64bit (x64) software on a 32 bit (x86) machine.
