    It sounds like a anti-virus or anti-spyware program is locking access to the registry. Spysweeper was a big cause of this. I would try disabling those programs and try again. If the same issue occurs download the Service Pack 2 or 3 stand alone installer, reboot into safe mode and install it. To access safe mode push F8 during a reboot cycle.

How to setup a new xp windows


Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart


note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system


note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded


your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation

the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd


if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3

While tring to install my UM175 modem, I get a message that say OS not supported. What do I do?


The Verizon UM175 installation supports WinXP, WinVista, and Win7 (and you're certainly running one of these three), so the only possible problem you might be having is that you may be running Windows XP, but you're running a Service Pack level that is no longer supported. Most software packages require WinXP to have at least Service Pack 2 installed, and many installations are now requiring WinXP to have at a minimum Service Pack 3.

To determine what Service Pack you're running:
START > Control Panel > System > General (tab)

Microsoft offers "Service Packs", consisting of (free) packages of updates and bug fixes for its operating systems, which are released riddled with bugs, omissions and security holes.
To install the Windows XP service packs that may be needed to allow the Verizon UM175 modem-related software installation to proceed, visit Microsoft at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article mentions Service Packs 1, 1a, 2, and 3, but there is also a 4th.
Windows Vista also has service packs (there are two). If you're running WinVista, the Verizon software may require both. For these Service Packs, visit Microsoft at:

I buy and HP laptop for Rs.56000/- but MS office 2010 was installed with trail pack only . I need Full version. why you dont install the orginal pack to us . This is rediculas .


HP or any brands while selling the product they install only Operating system and the cost for this is only charged from you. But for customer convenience and for a review they include some trial version of daily used applications like office, antivirus etc which will be valid for 30 or 60 or 90days of evaluation. If these packs are included you can evaluate these costly/useful applications before you purchase them. You can make it full version by making payment online to the respective manufactures. You dont have to call your dealers or service persons for installations or have the problems of installation of pirated versions.

How can you go to microsoft updates if you cannot connect to the internet via wireless or directly connected to the modem as these are the only two ways you can get internet. So, do you have internet? If you do go to this website to download Service Pack 3, as this is the newest Service Pack, here is the link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsxp/sp3/default.mspx . Hole I helped.

How can i install XP sevice pack2


1) Service Pack 2 is a service pack, not an operating system - you first have to install XP itself, which you'll have to buy.

2) It's entirely possible that there are no XP drivers available for one or more components of your laptop, so XP won't install on it. (Linux probably will.)
