Pyrated copy of Windows EP.



Dear Sirs,

I got a Windows XP Professional installed on my computer a few days back through one of my associates ( who is not available at present) and my computer started working perfectly all right. However, while typing the text when I tried to use Encarta Dictionary or Translation Device by downloading the same on the internet, the warning appeared "This window is not genuine and that I may be a victim of software counterfeiting and ultimately I was unable to download such types of softwares etc. A star like Icon has got fixed on the right side corner of the Start bar of my computer. Every time at the time of start and shutting down the computer warning is contituously appearing. Thus I mailed the request to get help from your goodself in this regard to solve this problem obligingly. Regards. [email protected]

How can I install my current e-mail (outlook express) on my new computer.


Outlook Express is no longer available. It has been redesigned and renamed into "Windows Live Mail," part of the Windows Live Essentials 2011 package. Click here to visit the homepage.

It is still free, just that they removed a few more things from it, which is available on Outlook 2011.

If you have Office be sure PPT is installed (some MSOffice do NOT include PPT ) if you have PPT installed launch your powerpoint.
go to File/ open

Considering you are on a work computer, you may find that all attachments are being blocked, as they are a security risk (many viruses are transmitted in this fashion).

Assuming you are using Outlook, it is quite easy to block the attachments at the mail server. I would check with my co-workers to see if their systems have the same issue, also.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

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.

Operating system


You can not upgrade to Windows 2000 server from windows XP Professional. All you can do is to purachase a copy of Windows 2000 server with as much as client license you want. And install it in your system on a sperate partition. Or you can install windows 2000 server after formatting your hard disk. This way you will loose any information on your computer. Installation instructions are available on the internet in the following link: http://www.petri.co.il/install_windows_2000.htm If you are using a simple stand alone machine, your current windows XP professional is the best choice according to my knowledge. All the best
