  • I have two Acer ASpire laptops. They are totally frozen because of the virus. I lost the recovery of Windows Vista Ultimate Edition disc, where to get a replacement. I have to rebuild my laptop.

    I have two Acer Aspire laptops.  They are totally frozen because of the virus.
    I lost the recovery of Windows Vista Ultimate Edition disc, where to get a replacement.
    I have to rebuild my laptop.


    No - what are the two Acers come with a recovery disk?

    If this is not the case, one of them would have a recovery partion, which specifically is to reinstall the operating system on it.

    With an Acer, you press Alt + F10 at startup to start the recovery process.

    All data are lost when you do the above.

    And for the lost disc, contact Acer and ask them to send you recovery disks.

    They do that for a small fee:


    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

  • How can I open a new tab and enter automatically in the address bar and not in the Firefox search engine?

    When I open a new tab I see Google search smooth with large beautiful Firefox logo on the top center of research, and makes me automatically type in this research. Is there a way to automatically enter address bar when a new tab is opened? Just moved to Firefox and it's quite annoying.
    Thanks to all the advice.

    Looks like you have set browser.newtab.url to Subject: House which opens the default home page in each new tab. The simplest thing to do is to reset this preference so that instead of the new tab page:

    1. Type of topic: config in the address bar and press ENTER.
    2. To ignore the warning, press the big button "I'll be careful, I promise!
    3. In the search box, paste browser.newtab.url
    4. In the search results, click browser.newtab.url , and then choose reset.


    1. Custom installation tab.

    2. Open the modules (Ctrl + Shift + A Manager; Mac: Command + shift + A), then the Extensions category.
    3. Next to the new custom label, click on the Options button.
    4. The value of any page you want to open in each new tab (topic: newtab is the value default; about: home is the default home page) and make sure that "Focus in the URL bar" is not checked.
  • on the left side of my address bar, is to show that firefox has blocked content that is not secure, whenevr I on facebook or any other applications related to it.

    Firefox blocks the content of almost all Web sites.

    It is even shows that for this page.

    Whenever I update the facebook page / year app on facebook that will appear.

    Previously it used to crash firefox, then I've updated, but since it is just keeping it blocking if gray / geen colorful lock is active on the left side of the address bar.

    So whenever I get this error I have to refresh the page & disable the protection on the page again.

    If the site is verified then firefox blocks almost everything.

    You can attach a screenshot?

    Use a type of compressed as PNG or JPG image to save the screenshot.

    You can try the following steps in case of problems with web pages:

    Reload Web pages and ignore the cache to refresh potentially stale or corrupt.

    • Hold down the SHIFT key and click the Reload button
    • Press 'Ctrl + F5' or 'Ctrl + Shift + R' (Windows, Linux)
    • Press 'Command + shift + R' (Mac)

    Clear the cache and cookies only from Web sites that are causing problems.

    "Clear the Cache":

    • Firefox/tools > Options > advanced > network > content caching Web: 'clear now '.

    'Delete Cookies' sites causing problems:

    • Firefox/tools > Options > privacy > Cookies: "show the Cookies".

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode without failure.
  • Something changed recently - now, I have to press the "arrow" to go to a Web site in the address bar. Is there a setting that I can change?

    Very recently, my Firefox has changed. I used to be able to start typing, say, 'www.google.com' in my location toolbar window. This would provide a drop-down list of recent sites, and I just click the line "www.google.com". Firefox would immediately take me to this Web site with a single click.

    But now if I click on the line 'www.google.com', it simply puts "www.google.com" in the location toolbar window, do not send me to google. I have to press the arrow to the right of the address bar to go to the page of google.

    Thus, something changed last week - maybe a setting has updated? I looked at the options page and can't seem to find something that applies.

If you do not have the issue so that all your modules, extensions, and themes are disabled, you can try adding them in one by one until you find the culprit. You should look at the guide to troubleshooting Extensions and themes and article troubleshooting issues with plugins like Flash or Java to solve common Firefox problems as well.

  • stepupgrade windows vista business Japanese version for windows vista Ultimate edition

    Recently, I bought a laptop in the Japan. The operating system is Windows Vista Business Japanese Version. I'm not familiar with the Japanese language and because of that I wanted to change it to English. I had discovered to find the way to put in place, but I found there was no way else to solve except buy a new Windows Vista with English Version or mine upgrade to Windows Vista ultimate. And I want to ask a question:
    1. is there anything else beside what I mentioned above?
    2. If I decided to buy a Step-Upgrade Vista Ultimate DVD Business, should I buy with the same language version with my Vista business, Japanese Version? Or is it fine with Step-setting level Vista Business to ultimate DVD English version anyway?
    3. Please show me how to change the display language after upgrade my Vista to Vista Ultimate!
    3. in the future, if there is a problem that I have to reinstall the OS, this DVD of Step - update allows again?

    Thank you for your attention.
    I'm sorry, my English is not good enough, I hope that you will understand my questions.

    Best account.

    Change language:

    1. to change your Vista professional Japanese language to English, you can buy a Japanese Vista Ultimate Upgrade disk/license.

    Then download the English language through Windows Update as an option Pack.

    Vista Ultimate upgrade must be done in the original language Vista came.

    2. your other Option is to buy a FULL Vista Business English version and do a clean install.

    3. If you want to reinstall, you need the original installation of business > Ultimate upgrade > re-download the optional updates in Windows English Language Pack...

    See you soon.

    I use Firefox for several years without problem. Recently, I made a few adjustments to the title of the tab options and now I'm going to have trouble getting to the Web sites by using google. I put a search such as 'floral paintings' word and of course of the hundreds of web sites pop up, but when I click on the site, nothing happens, I just get a blank page with showing Tools menu. I do a lot of research on the internet and this makes it just my life. I tried to uninstall Fiefox and reinstall anything will do. I tried various fixes without success, I tried the default option without success. What the hell is happening? Help, please!

    Since the return of FF 3.6.4 or 3.6.3 does not resolve the issue, I searched further and found the culprit.

  • I downloaded and installed and updated for Windows Vista Ultimate Edition. I have received a warning that a file is missing or damaged. What's past and how to fix my computer running again?

    I have my computer set up to warn me about available updates.  I downloaded the update for Windows Vista Edition full and proceeded with the installation.  To restart my computer, I receive a message that a file is missing or damaged and reinstall drive does nothing.  I bought the computer from a colleague about 3 years ago and until recently just used it to play DVDs and music.   In July, my son set up a wireless network I can use internet on this computer and my main on a floor.  What happened and how do I get my second working computer?    File: ntoskrn1.exe, status: 0xc0000098.
