Pc game software won't download

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?

Windows defender not working


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).

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=435BFCE7-DA2B-4A6A-AFA4-F7F14E605A0D&displaylang=en&mg_id=10134


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.

Where can I get a free download for windows xp 3 ksuser.dll?


The ksuser.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, ksuser.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.


Resolution
Important Note: Do not download the ksuser.dll DLL file individually from any "DLL download site." There are a number of excellent reasons that downloading DLLs from these sites are never a good idea.

Note: If you've already downloaded ksuser.dll from one of those DLL download sites, remove it from wherever you put it and continue with these steps.

1. Restart your computer if you haven't yet.

The ksuser.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the ksuser.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX10 and DirectX9 files but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the ksuser.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

4. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with ksuser.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

5. Restore the ksuser.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your ksuser.dll error, try extracting the ksuser.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

6. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Computer very slow and sluggish. Microsoft office documents open very slowly. General performance slow.


Delete all temp & internet temp files and just check if any AV is scanning in the background. AVG / Kapersky / Mcafee do these background scans silently sometimes. Maybe that is slowing down the pc. Disconnect from lan and internet and try wkg on the pc

Linksys network program incompatible with Vista


Try this:
  1. Download and install CC Cleaner http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
  2. Open CC Cleaner
  3. Click "Tools" in the left-hand column
  4. To the right you'll see a list of programs to uninstall, click on the Linksys program and Run Uninstaller
  5. Reboot if it asks you too, then reopen CC Cleaner
  6. Click "Tools" again, and choose "Startup" on the right this time
  7. Check to see if there are any lingering references to the Linksys software. If you find any Linksys Keys, delete them.
If this resolves that issue, try going to the Linksys support website to see if they have a Vista compatible software.

Hope this helps! : )
