Hello,

Did you complete the new install validation process? For most, who have a product key and install CD it may still fail, Microsoft or a tech local to you who can phone Microsoft Licensing and actually help you out, even if you ended up with a Pirated copy without knowing it was pirated. See phone number below.

Do you have full administrator privileges? You can right click the link in your menu and from the drop down list select 'Run as Administrator' and this may solve your problem. If it doesn't you do need Service Pack 1 from Microsoft that fixes more issues you wouldn't be the length of the list. If you can't pass the validation procedure all is not lost but you will need to phone MS from the number below and no matter what they can get you running correctly.

This phone number can actually get you free help from Microsoft themselves here:

Phone Support Wait Time: Will vary
Hours of Operation vista - onepixel.gifNo-charge: Unlimited support requests.
(866) 234-6020
According to Microsoft, downloading Service Pack 1 should resolve this problem as well as others only if you've validated your copy of Vista.

The download link for 32bit Vista service pack 1 is here.
The download link for 62bit Vista service pack 1 is here.

Don't know which you have, then you probably have 32bit.

Sorry this isn't an easy How-to Fix It, but the problems with Vista are far ranging. And after the service pack install, the issue will probably go away.

Kind Regards,
Worldvet

How to make my router password protected


There are two passwords to deal with here. If you are simply trying to place a password on the router so that persons cannot access it to change settings (I would assume therefore that it still uses default IP and password).
To place a password on the router, login by opening your web browser and on the address line type "192.168.2.1". Leave the password line blank and click SUBMIT. You should get the Router Setup Page.

Looking down the left side, find UTILITIES, and under that, SYSTEM SETTINGS. Click on this. Under the ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD section, leave the CURRENT PASSWORD line blank (if default), type in the password you desire, and confirm this password on the next line. Click the APPLY CHANGES button to save your selection.

Do not forget your password. If you do, the only way to access the router will be to factory reset it. Then you will need to completely configure the router for use from scratch.

Blank screen


A white blank screen? That sounds like the virus changed your display settings. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get to the task manager. Press and hold the Ctrl key plus the Alt Key then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up Click File at the upper left corner of the window then select New Task RUN. When the create New Task Window opens type: explorer.exe and hit OK. See if it starts populating your desktop icons and shows the start menu and task bar. If so, the virus changed your settings.

To change your display background click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When it opens select the Desktop tab and change the desktop background. Hopefully the white will go away.

You may have to get into Safe Mode to do the above if the virus disabled the Task Manager.

Every time i sigh in to yahoo, the screen turns white


I don't have problem so far.

Just a tip, if u still have "mail classic" setting, just change to the new one. i guess there is a problem between vista and classic style, either bug or bad script.

If you still have problem, please, try this tip:

1. Open your yahoo email as usual. if it just shows blank page, just let it be.

2. Open a new tab or just use the same page to copy and open this link:

http://de.mc237.mail.yahoo.com/mc/welcome?

Once you open this link, your yahoo email will be opened.

It has .de(from deutsch/germany) if you read the link, don't worry, it should not be a problem. your email will be viewed in language which you use for your set up.

Again, after that, it is important to change your email style from classic to new style to prevent the blank page appearing again.

Explorer problem


Hi

I suggest to restore the settings of your internet explorer to defaults. There could be bugs during your windows update.

1. Open internet explorer, go to tool --> Internet Options ---> Advanced tab ---> Reset.

Reset all the settings then restart your computer. In case you cannot open internet explorer because it will just give you a white blank page. try the following steps below.

1.1a Click Start -- type msconfig on start search box (for vista only). Click Run (for xp only). a pop up box window will show up (System utility configuration). Look for the tab Services.

Under services tab, put a check on the box that says "Hide all microsoft services" at the very bottom screen. Click apply then close. Restart the computer.

After restarting the computer follow step 1.

Keep me posted

Regards

There's a good possibility batteries may have tarnished or slighty corroded the battery terminals on your unit. When this happens, the batteries can't make good electrical contact through the terminals and therefore, can't deliver power to the unit. In some cases, it is easy to remove the tarnish/corrosion by filing it away using a fine grain sandpaper. I've done this many times with different units with good success. I'm not saying that this may be your problem, but It's something to look into.
