Question about Operating Systems
Pc game (bounty) won't install on my computer. I have Windows VIsta and when I try to install it says "HPCS program no longer running" and that's it. The game came with a peice of paper that says if I have trouble installing this,and get a message about can't install then just click the ignore button,but I don't get that message. I get the above message and think it's tied into or is "start_here.exe". Can you help me?? It says to contact best buy for any problems with the software. I bought 9 games and they are all having this problem.
I do believe that you have to run the Vistas compatibility test before downloading any programs. If it is a new game, does it say that it will run with Vista?
I had a couple of Dell and HP techs already tell me that if it was made before late 2007, it won't work. There went about $5,000 down the tubes. Oh yes, did I mention that I sent them a list of what programs I had and those I planned to use then asked for advice on the best system for my needs--this caveat went totally unread throughout the transaction with Dell, Every time something goes wrong with the system, the tech tells me that I should at least have some protection for my data-one for one thing and the secocnd as a fail safe. HMMMM--Well Dell, when I purchased the new system I upgraded the amount of Dell Data Safe; I also purchased two different external hard drives. One is only 80GB, and the other from them and still in warranty 500GB External HD didn't make the slightest bit of difference. The third external on here is a 250 GB External--Now what were you saying about playing it safe by using different options?

Tips for a great answer:
The Windows Defender software constantly scans your computer for threats such as spyware that may slow down your computer or try to steal personal information.
If the software wasn't installed properly or is conflicting with other programs running on your machine, Windows Defender may not work correctly.
To repair the software you either need to download the latest update available for the program, or you need to completely uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender.
Restart your computer's operating system.
Double-click the "Windows Defender" icon in the system tray at the lower-right end of the screen.
Click the question mark icon at the top of the Windows Defender screen and choose "Check for Updates."
Select "Continue" if you are running Windows Vista.
Wait for the updates to finish installing and click "Scan."
Click "Stop Scan" if the problem persists.
Click the question mark icon again and select "Exit Windows Defender."
Click "Yes" to confirm you want to close the software.
Open the "Start" menu screen and select "Control Panel." Select "Uninstall a Program" in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or instead choose "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows XP.
Click the "Windows Defender" entry and select "Uninstall."
Choose "Yes" and restart the computer after the program is removed.
Navigate to the Windows Defender installation webpage (see Below).
Click "Download" and double-click the Windows Defender installation file when it downloads to your hard drive.
Go through the onscreen installation instructions.
Open the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."
Select "Windows Defender."
Click "Scan" to start a new scan for malicious software.
