Windows and Internet Aksplir 8 has been upgraded and did not work after 9

When you upgraded to Internet Explorer 9, it made a backup of Internet Explorer 8 and replaced it. If you are running windows xp you would have had the Beta release of IE 9, as the full blown release will not run on xp. It was designed only for Vista or Windows 7.

In order to get IE 8 back, you will need to go to Start > Control Panel and look for the option to Uninstall or Change Programs or the Icon for Programs and Features if in icon view. Once the list of programs loads, look for Internet Explorer 9 and then highlight it and click Uninstall at the top of the screen. It will remove the new version and replace it with your previous version. You will need to reboot the machine when it is finished.

Once back up and running you should have IE 8 back in place and fully functional.

Virus says open with

If you have an Antivirus program on your computer, try getting it to scan and quarantine the virus first. If that doesn't work, and you're running XP or higher windows, restore your computer to an earlier date than the problem started occurring. I've had success with this method. Go to "Help and Support" and go to "Backup and Restore", then "Restore". Pick a date and then let the machine run- sometimes it takes it a couple minutes to run, then it will tell you to turn off the computer and let it restart. Good luck, hope this helps.

Booting takes more time or sometime system hangs while booting. While opening new applications, Error crops up!

You may have to re-nstall windows xp, but that's the last thing that you would want to do because it requires formatting your hard disk. Ummm it could be a virus, but i think that you should by some more ram. Ram is the memory in your computer that keeps everything on the screen. You can get ram at ebay or craigslist. If you are able to, go to start, control panel, performance and maintenance, then in the left hand side there is a tab the says "See Also", in that box there is a windows program called system restore, open it. Make sure that you let the computer take its time. Don't force it to handle many processes at once because that can lead to crashing. Now back to system restore. Make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlyer time is selected, then click next. Try to choose a date that you think was before the computer became sluggush. Once you've chosen click next. Follow the instructions on the screen, click next and you should be promted to restart, so restart. Once it restarts it should restore while booting up. And it should work again.

I have a Dell Dimension 5150. I was working on a project when the computer froze up. I had no choice but to turn off by the power button. Now it will not boot. Says there is no bootable device. I tried...

If you have a bootable xp disk handy set up the computer to boot from dvd-rom or cd-rom, put the disk in the drive and let it start setting up windows, Once on a blue page where you have a few options choose "R" for recovery console, it opens up a command prompt page. When in the command prompt page type: chkdsk c:/f and press enter, let it run. When finished restart hopfully its all back to working order.

<Change drive letter to the drive you use if it is other than c:>

You could also get another hard drive set as master and set the other as slave, load a copy of windows onto the c: drive and boot it up, all your files should now be on drive d: your original boot drive.

Let me know how you get on. thanks

Try to format my hard drive it will not format. or at least i cannot find anything that has.. all it will do is copy over the old windows but i know there is a better way to clear everything off!

go into the control panel. click administrative tools. open computer management. click the tab called disk management. make sure the drive you want to format isnt the system drive. (it wont let you format while running) and format the drive from there. you can also choose the drive letter you want to format to. very useful if you are a neat person. (C: MAIN, D: documents, M: music, Z: dvd writer, V: virtual memory.........)
