Getting Around Norton GoBack

I am attempting to get a Windows XP Pro machine to boot up unsuccessfully. It has Norton GoBack installed on it, I'm not sure what version, I'm sorry. It is likely a recent version though. What's even worse is that GoBack will not allow me to slave this hard drive to another computer to retrieve the data from it. I have attempted to disable GoBack by pressing the space bar and telling it to disable it but is stops after a couple seconds and says that it cannot continue otherwise it will corrupt the file system and it gives an error Code 0X15. I have also attempted to use a GoBack Removal tool that's on the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows and it doesn't work either. Can anyone give me any help in prying this stupid program off of this computer so I can at least get to the files? Thanks for your help!

I want windows to take over restore points instead of this norton goback 4.0


Norton will slow your computer up.

You should always remove and uninstall programs from your PC that you are not using. It could be beneficial to your computer's productivity and functioning to free up space. You run the risk of running out of space on your computer if you add too many programs without uninstalling some. It is a relatively easy process, but you should be sure you are not removing a program that is necessary to the operation of your computer.

Click "Start" and select "Programs." Click "Control Panel" and "Programs" and "Programs and Features." Browse the list of programs on your computer and select one that you want to remove. Click "Uninstall." You may be prompted for permission from the administrator to remove the program. Enter the administrator password or confirmation if necessary. Check the properties of the program if it is not listed in "Programs." You can do this by right-clicking on the program desktop icon and selecting "Properties." Check to see if the program is compatible with the version of Windows that you are using. Click "Start" and "Run," to manually remove the programs if the uninstall option does not completely uninstall the program. Type "Regedt32" in the box and click "OK." Locate the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" registry key and click "Export" under the "File" tab. Click "Desktop" on the "Export Registry File" dialog box. Type "Uninstall" in the "File Name" box and select "Save." The left panel of the Registry Editor will display the programs that are currently installed. Right-click the key in the left panel of the Registry Editor window. Click "Delete." Click "Yes" when you are asked to confirm deletion of the program. Click the "File" menu and select "Exit." This will exit the Registry Editor. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and click "Add or Remove Programs." Confirm that the program is no longer listed here.
Hope this helps and you are finally rid of norton.

It sounds to me that unfortunately you have an error on your recorded CD and there will be nothing you can do to repair that.
The installation of Norton should not cause the problem itself an error on the hard drive will usually cause that problem.

How instile MS xp for notebook CP


If you have Vsta already loaded on your laptop and want to get rid of it, in favor of XP Pro, you must do a few things.
1 - determine if there are any files you need to keep, like documents (Word, etc.) or spreadsheets (Excel XLS, etc.) and like that.
2 - use a DVD-R or RW and write all the critical documents to the DVD so that you don't lose them in this process. Do a simple Copy from Windows Explorer.
3 - once all has been saved, the easiest way to accomplish what you want, is to boot the laptop using a legal Microsoft XP Pro CD or DVD, then follow the instructions to creating a bootable version of XP Pro on the lapop.
4 - you will need to decide if you want to have a dual-boot system or only an XP Pro system.
5 - if you want dual boot, follow the instructions; if XP Pro only, then follow those instructions. They should all reside on the XP Pro installation disk.

But remember that XP Pro is an older OS than Vista, so your installation media will only be able to get you so far. I would recommend following the instructions to creating an XP Pro bootable laptop only, and that means to then format the entire C drive, and then use the install media to create an XP Pro C Drive.

6 - go from there to an XP Pro laptop.
7 - as soon as the system is finished, and stable, rather than starting to install all the applications you want, like Office or other applcations, go to Microsoft's update site and update your XP Pro laptop to the newest versions of those things which will protect your system from outside problems. Update the protection applications from Microsoft first. Let the Update Site recommend, and choose from that list.

If you're going to install an anti-virus, like Norton AV, then start by installing the newest version of Norton AV or 360 or Internet Protection, etc. Then, go to the Symantec/Norton site, and update all those applications, too, especially the latest virus definitions or signatures.

Do it that way, to ensure your system is built slowly and with the most safety possible.

Be careful, and deliberate, and make sure you do not rush through this process, as it is extremely important to do it right, right from the start.

Good luck!

I just installed xp pro and it keeps freezing


To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.

Cannot run Fujifilm Software for FinePix with Windows Vista


1) If you right-click on the executable file, can you use the
"Compatibility" TAB to run it as an XP program?

2) Many XP device drivers will fail to install or execute properly
under windows VISTA, and I suspect it is the camera's USB
or Fire-wire (IEEE-1394) based device driver that is causing
the problem, not the main application.

Unfortunately there is NO easy solution for this,
except to get an upgraded software package (for Vista)
from the Camera Manufacturer.

3) There are also two possible work-around(s), but both require
some knowledge and software installation:

DUAL-BOOT
------------------
Install both Windows XP and Windows Vista on your
computer using two separate hard-drive partitions, and
a boot manager.

A partitioning tool like "Norton Partition Magic", formerly
"Power Quest" or "Acronis Tools" can be used to partition
the hard-drive non-distructively (your data is preserved):

a) Resize (shrink) the existing Windows partition.
b) Create a new partition for Windows XP (about 10 Gigs)
c) Install Windows XP-Pro onto the new partition,
d) Add both the XP and Vista partitions to the BOOT.INI
file on the boot drive.

Both windows XP and Vista do have multi-boot capability,
but the Windows XP boot manager may not recognize Vista,
in which case you may have to re-install or re-pair the Vista
installation. The Vista boot manager will recognize WinXP.


Running VISTA is generally a bad idea, because it is obscenely
slow and inefficient compared to XP, and because it is infected
Microsof't draconian and arrogant copy protection schemes,
known as DRM = Digital Rights Management.

Towards this end, Vista also insists that all installed multi-media
devices must be "Recording Industry" compliant and approved,
to make music and movie piracy more difficult. Many media
copying programs and CD-rippers will also refuse to run,
by design.

All this "Added Technology" is stealing your money, your
computer resources, your performance, and your right to
backup your media, at your expense, for the benefit of
the movie industry Mafia.

Use Vista only when you have to, boot to Windows XP for
most of your applications.


VIRTUAL MACHINE
-----------------------------
Both Microsoft and VM-ware (as well as others) make
a software product called a Virtual-PC, which allows you
to emulate multiple operating systems under windows,
including older windows, MAC and Linux.

VMWare is by far the best, the most reliable and the
most flexible, at about $200 US.
