There are some things to be aware of in Vista. If you have the new microsoft office, then you need to make sure you save as with the older format or others won't be able to open your documents. You shouldn't have a problem with emails since emails are typically generic where you can email someone on a mac, win 98, linux, xp, etc....... Vista will be different since a lot has been redesigned, but reviews has been fairly good from coworkers. I personally prefer Mac but see if you can try Vista out from a friend before buying.

Sterownik vista Mustek ScanExpress 1200 UB Plus


From reading around, there isnt one....But i found this post

I've just installed a Mustek 1200 CU scanner on Vista.

I used the XP driver from the Mustek website.

You have to temporarily edit the registry to make the installer think you have XP

In regedit, go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cu rrent Version
Find the "product name" key. Carefully record what it says before you start. (eg paste it into a document somewhere).

Then change it to make it read: Microsoft Windows XP

Then run the Mustek XP installer, and change the registry key back to saying Vista.

The scanner works fine in Photoshop, for example, but the Vista scanning wizard doesn't detect the scanner. Don't think it uses TWAIN?

What is the POP 3 address to send email using instead of using wi


You simple CANNOT. Windows Mail no longer supports the HTTP servers used by Yahoo! and other web-based e-mail providers. Windows Mail does not permit the use a Web-based (HTTP) e-mail account on a computer that is running Windows Vista.
For an alternative, use Windows Live Mail instead of Windows Mail

loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Windows Live Mail is an e-mail program that you install on your computer. Windows Live Mail stores messages on your computer. This means that you can access, read, and compose e-mail messages even when you are not connected to the Internet.

Windows Live Mail works with popular Web-based e-mail services such as Hotmail, AOL mail, Google mail, and Yahoo! mail. Windows Live Mail is built to automatically configure many popular e-mail services.

To install Windows Live Mail, visit http://download.live.com/wlmail

I m looking for recovery cd of my notebook TX 1301.


HP TX1301 - you should have got one with your computer or at least a utility on your computer which creates recovery discs using your own blank discs.

See this for Windows XP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph08097

Windows Vista
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=81351&docname=c00810334

If you are running Vista and you cant boot your computer , insert the vista installation disc into the drive , start the computer off the install disc , click repair my computer when you get the "Install Now" option to access vistas recovery tools from the disc

Vista Business and XP


Have you installed SP1 for Vista? This was supposed to help with some of the speed issues. However, I am on XP, having experienced both, and not yet willing to deal with the issues surrounding Vista, as there are just too many. On another note, MS is offering free support for issues following installation of SP1 (see https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?prid=11274&gprid=500921), so it could be that, assuming that you can make them understand this is related to SP1, and that they could zero in on the reason for your speed issue, you might decide you want to stay with Vista. At any rate...

As for the mail, it sounds as though you have been using the Windows Mail included with Vista exclusively. There is not a "Windows Mail" program for Windows XP. The exact solution to the question of how to bring your mail back over depends on what you used previously, and what type(s) e-mail accounts you have/had. You could take a look at Windows Live Mail (it's free, at least for now) at http://get.live.com/wlmail/features#ID0E2BAC and see if this would do it for you.

However, aside from the Vista/Mail/Live Mail combination, the solution for mail in going back to an XP OS depends on what you use and did use for mail previously. If you have an account with an ISP from which you are downloading your mail, you should be able to put copies of those messages back on the server by, in effect, e-mailing them to yourself if no other choices are available. (The individual choices / features depend heavily on the ISP and e-mail provider you are using.) I would say to just make sure you have things set in Windows Mail NOT to download the messages from the ISP before you start sending them to yourself.

Then, once you have reconverted back to XP and installed whatever program you will use to handle your mail (Outlook Express?), download them back in. You can export from Windows Mail or Outlook Express into Outlook - reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/196347/en-us - so this may represent another choice. The downside with this is that the date/time exported will end up being the date/time on the message in Outlook.

To summarize, no there is no Windows Mail - in XP, the only equivalent is Outlook Express. You will have to go to some effort regardless of the choice, but there are several ways to get your e-mail back down to the new choice. Best of luck, and if you need more info, please post back. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!

Lost my right as administrator


You have done big mistake that's why you are getting problem.

1)Regarding installation of win XP over windows vista.
You have to install first lower version and then higher version i.e. you should install first win xp and then windows vista. But vice-versa you can't do it.
So my suggestion is that format your c drive then install win XP
after installation win XP install win vista.

2) which operation system do you want to open .
You can remove it using windows tweak utility software wich is freely available on most of the website. Also you can manually edit it.
For manually do this.( i m not sure about windows vista it is available or not)
right click on my computer->click on Advanced Tab->setup and recovery framework click on settings->click on Edit button
You will see the boot.ini file. You can remove the windows XP line from that file.
