Downloading Xp Mode

I am trying to download windows xp mode for windows 7 professional for a brand new laptop of my boss from my windows vista business machine. But it is unable to do so, as microsoft requires authentication. I am an it guy and i have registered his windows 7 on my email id. If microsoft needs, i can provide it. I cannot download windows xp mode in my office as it is 500 mb is size. Moreover, my boss is not having enough time to spare his laptop for downloading this software and thereby reducing the speed of internet at his own end for other activities like downloading emails on ms outlook, using video chats etc. Can anyone suggest what can be done?

Downloading Files Blocked

I am trying to download a completed form from a government website and am getting the error message "to help protect your security, ie blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options. " When i click to download file, i get the message "to display the webpage again, ie needs to resend the information you've previously submitted. " I'll click retry and am taken back to the beginning and start the whole circle over.

I have added the website to my trusted sites, have tried taking the privacy settings down to accept all cookies and have tried turning off popup blocker. Nothing seems to work to allow this to finish. I am running ie 8 on windows xp pro. The file is small in size and i've not had trouble until today.

Downloading Of Software Disappears

For the past few months whenever i go to download software from the internet or download a pdf file, they never show up. I get the download status window and it tells me that it is complete, but i always either download to my desktop or my documents and nothing ever shows up. I even do a search for the file and windows vista tells me it does not exist. This is getting very irritating and hoping that coming to this forum helps. I am not sure if it is a some setting that has changed or what. Looking forward to any help.

Unable To Sign In To A Website

A problem has just started in the last few days where i can't sign in to a website i have done so before many times. It's www.Findmypast.co.uk .

I can load the home page but when i click to sign in it simply comes back to the home page and i can't get any further.

I have cleared the cache including cookies but still no luck.
I have the site listed in the trusted zone.
I have contacted the site and they say it is to do with ie8 so can't help.
I can get through on mozilla but don't want to keep swapping browsers and would like to stay with ie8.

Cannot Access Bank Website

Customer having trouble with our web site after getting new computer. I have a customer that has a new computer and tries to log in with his id and password onto our bank site and an error about his browser keeps popping up and not allowing him to access his account information. He has a dial up connection with netzero. I am at a loss with this and he is able to access his account on his work computer just fine. We have been trying to solve this issue for 2 weeks now. I (he) really needs some help with this before he goes to another bank and experiences the same problem.

Cannot Stay Signed In To A Website

First, my apologies if this takes a while to explain. We have 2 laptops. Mine runs vista and ie8. My partner's was originally running vista when he bought it last spring. He recently had it upgraded to windows 7 (64-bit version) and ie8. There is a website that we both sign on to with the same user id/password. I have no problems. He continually gets bounced out and it acts like he never signed in. He tries to look at something and it says he is not a member and to please sign in. Or it says he has been idle too long and to please sign in again (when he's been right there trying to click on something).

Every time he tries to click on something, it bounces him out. You can imagine the frustration this is causing. He did not have this problem until his pc was upgraded to windows 7 and ie8. Has anyone else experienced this? Just for full disclosure this is an adult website and he doesn't have problems with any other website.

Problems Downloading Programs With Win 7

I previously had vista installed on my dell but i had some sort of virus, so i went to a tech store (i'm living in south america so options are limited obviously) and they re-installed windows 7 on my computer. But i can't download a number of things - firefox, skype, adobe flash player, and programs necessary for my work. It doesn't give me the option to "use as administrator". Anyways, any help would be appreciated.

For example, when i go to the skype homepage, it will start downloading, then state that "skype has stopped working". I am using the 64 bit version of windows, and i can't access the 32 bit version, and i've tried everything that has been suggested in the forums.

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

Downloading Photos From Memory Cards

Windows xp was great for downloading pics, eventhough it would freeze at times. Vista was horrible. Windows 7 is very confusing. When i insert a cd-r to copy pics from memory cards, it promps to name the cd if you want, i don't so i just click next, than it gives me a blank/shaded screen, and a message at the bottom right saying there are pics ready to download, but when i click on it, it does not do anything. It send the photos to the c drive and there is where i can copy to the cd, horrible. Leave it like windows xp nice and simple. Tell me what i am doing wrong

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Website Blinks When I Move The Mouse

I have ie8 x64, and windows vista home x64. Ever since installing ie8 via windows update, i have had a very annoying problem. Lots of websites, including this page where i am submitting this question, blink or flash when i move the mouse. Just the page and elements on it, not the ie interface or windows task bar. I have read some confusing things as to whether this is an adobe flash player problem with ie8 x64 or just a glitch with ie8, but as it is doing it on this page, which from the source does not use adobe flash, i am not sure it is the problem.

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.

Website Links Incorrect Operation

I am having several problems with my windows 7 oem on a newly purchased dell desktop commuter and a windows 7 upgrade from vista on a dell laptop. Every time i go to the windows 7 pages and ask a question about one of the problems (like the fact that settings change back to default, sound, mouse, etc. ) I am directed to a page that has answers for windows vista. That does me no good obviously, and so i become frustrated and wonder about the product which will not perform successfully and the proper availability of help.

Website Member Login Problem

I have membership to a football website i.e i have been supplied with a member user name and password. When i go the log-in page and put my details in and hit log-in, the user name and password i have entered just disappear and i cannot access the subscriber only content. The webhost has checked my log-in details from his computer and can navigate the website. Why won't my log-in work on my computer. I use internet explorer 7 and have no problems logging into ebay, hotmail etc. Is there something that needs to be enabled? The webhost can't replicate the problem, so can't really help me. He says it must be a fault on my computer. Any ideas?

Crash / Bsod After Downloading Security Update

After receiving a mcafee update in late july my computer asked to restart. During starting up my computer got to the password page and then crashed to bsod. I restarted it in safe mode and then did a recovery as suggested which seemed to solve the problem. However my mcafee security center continually dropped protection so i contacted mcafee and they advised me to uninstall the old mcafee and download the new version. After download my computer crashed as before and on contacting mcafee was told there was an issue that their engineers are working on, but gave me no time frame for a resolution.

I have since attempted to download kaspersky security software, but after using the scan and finding nothing the security centre requested a restart after a update.guess what happened. Crash to bsod again!. My computer works fine after the removal of the software once i, ve employed recovery, but this obviously leaves me with only windows defender and no anti-virus software. Is this a mcafee issue or has their software caused some damage to my windows software or computer hardware? Please help i'm feeling a little defenseless.

A few days ago, while having a video conference with my friend from spain(i'm in ireland), my pc froze completely and nothing worked but the hard reboot. Now it's happening almost every time i try to download any . Flv video. Sometimes i can see . Flv videos for 1 hour, some times for 5 minutes before i have to reboot the machine again.

I was thinking it was firefox browser  but by my surprise it happened with explorer too. I was googling the subject and some forums suggest update drivers. And they are updated and still the same. Another sites blame on windows 7, but i bought my laptop in december2009 and never had this issue before. It's happening since 21st of march 2010. Why is faulty now? I've been on the same web pages always, no hacker's or weird sites. I'd really appreciate if some one can help me out with this issue before is getting worse.

My features are:
Windows 7 home premium
Hewlett packard hp g61 notebook pc
Pentium dual core cpu t4300 @ 2. 10 ghz
4. 00 gb ram
64-bit operating system

0x00000007f Bsod Downloading Games Using Internet

I just updated and rebuilt my pc and have reinstalled win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a bsod while using the pc. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet. From the program blue screen viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769.

I can not find any solution to fix this issue, i have updated drivers, i have ran the microsoft memory checker, i have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, i even changed motherboards, got the errors on both ssd and hdd. The only things i haven't changed out is the ps and cpu, since i am using the pc to write this i am ruling out the cpu as the issue.

I have used memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and cpu, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. It seems to be software/driver issue but i can not figure it out.

Upgrade Option Program Website Error

I bought a copy of windows vista home premium 64x. When i go to the website and put in my product key it says i do not have a valid copy for update. That is jus tthe thing, i bought vista home premium 64 just to upgrade. I know it is valid because i bought the package from compusa brand new on 10/2/2009. I get validated updates and i have my copy registered. Any tips on how to get the website to accept my valid copy? I used caps and dashes exactly how it looks on my sticker.

I tried three times and then had to wait for two hours to try again. I can not get it to work. I am frustrated because i want my free copy. I paid for it when i bought my specific brand of vista. I bought the operating system "in the box". Please let me know what i should do.

Note; i did not buy the software from a computer manufacturer, i bought the system in the box. I realize this means i have to use the website located at; http://windows.com/upgradeoffer         however, it is not working. It keeps giving me an error screen. Help?

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Downloading Issues / Save Or Open The File Message

Okay, i first noticed this issue when i was playing team fortress. Whenever you enter a server you'll be presented with a server message, which is a html page with-in the program (from my understanding). But when my computer is about to load the server message it minimizes and i get a message saying if i want to save or open the file, if i click open it will open in my browser and the in game window will be blank. Its happened to a few other programs as well, for instance when installing a program the eula will come up as a html doc within the installed and i have to scroll to accept, however it again asks me to open or save, if i open it will open in a browser.

The last place i noticed it was in outlook, whenever i get new mail, instead of doing the normal thing outlook does with mail it asks me if i want to save the file it's receiving. At first i thought my temp folder was full, cleaned it and i still get the issue. Its really limiting what i can do on my computer, could anyone help?
