I have a 32-bit Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2. I also have Norton Internet Security, which expires on 27/02/2015. I do not often use this laptop, but when I do I update and make sure that all is correct and up-to-date. When I went to check my updates installed there not. When I checked Windows Update update selection has been disabled. I choose Check For Updates and a message came that it could not, because the service is not running. I checked MSCONFIG and depending on whether the program was running. There is no error code! Then I ran the Microsoft Fix It program. The main problem was not fixed, but have some unknown minor problems. Computer laptop operating system has been pre-installed and never put. Norton's anti-virus program used only on the computer! Although I tried three times I couldn't send a troubleshooting report! Before you run the difficulty this program I disabled the Smart of Norton Firewall and Antivirus so that there would be a problem!
It was suggested to delete all folders and files in the folder C: / / windows/C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution. I am wary to do this, while others said that it worked for them. Since it is a Windows folder, I'm not sure that there is not a better way to go! I appreciate your help! Marlene
Internet Explorer is version 9.0.6.
Note: The computer must NOT be connected to the internet or local networks (i.e. other computers) for an extended period (i.e. more than a few minutes) in its current state. All your personal data (e.g., banking online & passwords credit card) must be considered at risk, if not already compromised.
Applications, (Norton and McAfee) are notorious for not not upgrade (or uninstalling) itself. Chances are that the "remains" of Norton here is your troublemaker.

I'm not familiar with this program, you have a link where you download from, and details of the product etc. ?
Have you tried right clicking on the shortcut to the program or the .exe and select "Run As Administrator"? Perform, even if your user name is an administrator.
Try right click on the actual Setup.exe and choosing the option "Run As Administrator"? Perform, even if your user name is an administrator.

However, the requirements for the media upgrade is that you have an operating system already eligible such as Windows XP or Vista installed to use it. Since the Windows 7 end user license agreement.

I have two new computers that came pre-installed with W7HP 64 bit and both are pre-installed with the product obviously not commercial office 2007 which we do not want to use. I own copies of Office 2003 and use these products on new computers. I tried loading Office 2003 on a PC and had a lot of errors especially trying to run Outlook 2003. I am now using Thunderbird as it works and really miss Word/Excel 2003 - (Office 2007 ribbons wah! what were you guys thinking!)
I have also 16 bit score test programs written and compiled years using Quickbasic 4.5 specific use in my practice. Any ideas on how I can get those pennies W7?
I understand that there is a professional version of Windows 7 that integrates WOW64. This will allow me to run Office 2003 (Outlook esp) without errors?
Can I run programs QB4.5 with W7Pro?
If Yes, please indicate how should I proceed?
Gordon and Marilyn, thanks
I now have my love Office 2003, I dare say - the best suite MS Office never exit.
I'm so happy to see the end of these appalling ribbons and unnecessarily complex menus geeks...
Why CRYSTAL_REPORT program does not work with windows Vista?
Windows Vista Compatibility Center
First thing to do is to check its Vista compatibility at the link above, and if not to see what patches/solutions are available from its manufacturer...
If this is not Vista compatible, read the info on the link above.
It works for some programs, but not all.
This applies to software programs, NOT hardware drivers.
If it's Vista compatible > uninstall it > Re-download/save to your desktop > right click on the setup.exe > run as admin.
See you soon.

Hello HP community!
I recently got a HP Compaq d530 SFF of the company, where I had my work experience.
Fortunately, I took their offer and took the PC at home, everything was going well until I bought myself some new DIMM from ebuyer.com.
I again for a fact, the computer must DDR 333 MHz, PC2700 and it must be in DIMM format, so I went and bought 3x1Go modules. A few days later they arrived and I have them inserted in the computer, ensuring that two DIMMs was in blue locations and others (I wanted to keep a 256 MB module to) in the black sites.
I have re-inserted power cable and tried to boot the PC, he showed me a BIOS message, showing that the amount of memory has changed, since the last boot. Once the configuration is presented, he acknowledged only the 256 MB module. I then turned off the computer, and then remove the 256 MB module, to see what would happen. So, I restarted the PC, and it gave me an error (not shown) tone. To which I then tried (needles) each DIMM different to see if one of them was vice. They are all gave me the same error tone. Since then, I've been running Windows Vista Home Premium, with 1 GB (4x256MB DIMM).
Maybe someone has a suggestion how to fix this?
I've already updated the version of the BIOS at 02.44 (later I could find).
Thanks in advance!
Yours sincerely Simon Cahill
Not all memory is the same, even when picking PC2700. Did you buy non ECC?
Here is a guide on the configuration of the memory for the D530SSF

I use conexant high definition driver v 3.11 and its working fine but not the microphone plug on the front of the laptop. I tried all the driver conexant Web 3.12 3.14 and after and the problem is reversed, the microphone does not work very well "using the audio msn Configurator" but I have no sound.
The driver is working properly, no error, but not sound under windows. Does anyone have a solution for me?
I have worked on this for 1 week and I really want to resolve the thing, because the cell phone is a great product and on vista, it works like a 486.
Thank you very much
On the Toshiba download page there is unfortunately no driver audio Windows XP Home edition for this laptop preinstalled Vista. Read some other assignments that I found the same reports sound works but mic cannot be used.
