Vista is not a software, it is an operative system, this means the software support where the rest of software is installed.
You do not "uninstall Vista". You format the disk and reinstall a different operative system (best solution) or you install other operative system, modify boot.ini file and delete Vista system folder (bad risky solution)

Format your hard drive.

Then install the OS of your choice

Un-installing vista (o any Operating System) = formatting hard drive

Hope that helps

Hi comus

I agree with Benimur to try to get the manufacturer's drivers and cds remember to take a backup of your data if you install xp because you gonna loose all data on your disk.

good luck

    Hello comus
    If you have the installation disk to vista just put it in and boot from it when you startup your computer then you just follow the steps when you reinstalls it.

Hi,

You can not uninstall Vista. You would need to over write it by re-partitioning and then reformatting and eventually installing the other Operating System. If you are going to downgrade to XP, perhaps it may be to your advantage to verfit from your computer manufacturer's drivers/download page if said drivers are available for Windows XP or for that matter whatever OS you would be shifting to.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the clear-up and additional information. I was made to understand that, alternately, you can try:


    • verify that your version has the Vista logo on the box or on a sticker or are you trying to instal a downloaded trial version of Corel draw X3, if so check for malwares;

    • install Service Pack 2 (version 13.0.0.739)

    • update the video driver and/or turn down the acceleration;

    • replace pscript5.dll;

    • do a Repair from the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite installer (in the Control Panel > Programs and Features;

    • try running it in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP and see if the window renders properly. (Right-click the executable, select Properties, and go to the Compatibility tab.).
    Incidentally, you can also try keeping the F8 key pressed while loading CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT. This will reset the workspaces in case they got corrupted.

    Cheers.

Removing fliptoast from the program list doesn't get rid of it. It continues to appear on the top of most programs I run. How can I totally shred this little ******?


Hi Llewellyn,

Did you delete the program from your programs folder or did you uninstall it through 'add/remove programs' in your control panel. Simply deleting it from your list of program files will not uninstall the program.
Deleting installed programs could also corrupt your windows installation.

Best wishes,

C:/Progam Files/blocktards/unins000.dat what is this error and how do i fix it


Hello crouch8323,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
Unins000.dat is a files that if used by Blocktards' uninstaller to properly uninstall Blocktards off of your Desktop. If your are trying to uninstall Blocktards and you are getting an error message, I recommend that you uninstall Blocktards from the Control Panel's Add & Remove Program (for Windows XP) or Programs & Features (for VISTA or 7). If you still have the same error message, you can also try uninstalling Blocktards by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Blocktards, and click Uninstall. If these steps give you the same error message, you may need to use Blocktards installer to uninstall the game, see if running the installer gives you the option to modify, remove or repair. And if all else fails you can always use a 3rd party uninstaller software like the option found in CCleaner.

    Error Code 0x80004005


    The issue is with google earth, is a fault in the software that comes up with certain windows installation.

    I report from Google groups:

    "
    It sounds like Google Pack might be having an issue with installing
    Google Earth. You can try downloading Google Earth directly at
    http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/GoogleEarthWin.exe

    If you're unable to download anything with Google Pack, you may want
    to try looking in the awesome Google Pack Help Center for more
    information. You can find the Google Pack Help Center at
    http://www.google.com/support/pack/?hl=en"

    Also do the following, install it manually from

    Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add Program from CD/Floppy Diskette
