MCT makes a USB to RS232 9pin adapter. If you need the cable you can buy from them too.

The drivers they provide will help you with your problem. Follow the link, download the driver, and then install.

  1. Remove the cable
  2. Install the drivers
  3. Re-connect the cable.
This should solve your problem.

I uninstalled a program that had named itself program files, and I think it uninstalled everything on windows XP I don't get a login screen anymore

The only thing i know to be named "Program Files" is a default folder created upon installing the OS. It wouldnt be a program, its a folder where the programs you install are stored by default. if you did delete this folder, you may no longer have a working OS, and might need to reinstall your OS.

My computer will not let me view PUB files and i do not know what to do

When you create a document in Microsoft Publisher or any desktop publishing program, in order for others to open and view the file they would normally have to have the same program. If they don't, there are ways you can convert your creation to a format that others can use. If you are the recipient, you'll need to get the person who created the file to save it in a format you can view.

You'll need to start your computer in "safe-mode". Your other option is to make a bootable usb drive with Unetbootin. You'll need to use a different computer for this. This will enable you to save your files and then reinstall a new operating system (xp, vista or 7).

You need to get a really good virus program which will detect the virus on your computer. You also get an malware program too for spyware. Viruses will effect everthying on your computer but before you get your computer fixed try this first.. I used Panda Cloud which is free and it is a really good program! Another good program for malware is IO Security 360. Do a deep scan after you install the virus program and malware program. Another good program for your computer is Advanced System Care 4 with is also free and it keeps your computer working really well and it cleans your computer of files you don't need. It also has tools that lets you know that you have founds and it fixes it.

I received a PDF attachment but can't open it because this is what comes up : This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Association...

It simply means there's no PDF reader installed on your computer. Or if it's already installed, then there must be some default pdf reader recently set incorrectly to another application/program. If you are sure that there's a pdf reader, like adobe reader, foxit reader, etc..etc.. installed on your computer, follow the steps below:
Right click the pdf file (i guess you've downloaded the pdf file), click "properties", there you'll see a "change" or "Browse" button on the general tab, click change or browse and locate the program to open the pdf file, select it and click "Ok" then "Apply", close the dialog box and double-click the pdf file, it'll open without any problem. You can also directly open the file on your internet browser like Internet Explorer, Google chrome or Firefox etc..etc.. Simply right-click the pdf file and select "Open with" and browse the internet browser and click it.

If in case you need a pdf reader to open the file, click here to download adobe reader. Open the link, click "Download" proceed with the onscreen instructions and install the program, if you are asked to confirm whether this problem to be made the default pdf reader, confirm it and and finish the installation by clicking finish. Now open the pdf file, there'll be no more issues.

If you need further help, let me know, it would be much appreciated if you can let me know how you open the file.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I was trying to help getting the drivers online but for that camera it seems to be tricky.

I would suggest the following:

in another computer attempt to create an image file of your driver cd as you mentioned you still have it (I strongly suggest you don't lose it), then with a usb thumb drive move that image into the vista computer (the one that does not have the disc tray working). now for you to create a image iso file on the other computer (virtual image of your cd) you need nero or magiciso or another program to create iso files from a cd, now to read that image on your cd-trayless computer you can use a program called magic disc.

there are other programs you can use to make iso image files that are free

free alternatives to nero

magic disc
- this is free and it will create a virtual cd drive on your computer without cd tray, you just need to mount the iso file you created with the other programs and it will work like a cd drive so you can installation cd without ever inserting the actual cd.

good luck!
