I bought WINDOWS 7 from a 3rd party and looks like it's been hacked

I bought WINDOWS 7 from a 3rd party and looks like it has been hacked.  I would like to come back to Win Vista, my laptop came with the manufacturer.  I have the Vista product key sticker, how can I find the software to reinstall it?

Thank you

Hello

Here are the different ways to reinstall vista

Contact the computer manufacturer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

they do it for a nominal cost of $

also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

Ask them of the exact key sequence

or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

they contain all versions of vista

This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • No update Windows 7 from 24/12/2009? Looks like a long time.

    I'm starting to wonder if I have problems with Windows Update. I have Windows Update to check and download automatically the value. Since I use MSE for my antivirus, it is my understanding that I need for this.

    NOTE: I'm the daily MSE virus definition updates.

    I'm just afraid that I don't seem to be getting any standard Windows 7 updates. The last update was received and installed was 12/24/2009. Windows 7 is so good, that it is not too often that Windows XP has been updated.

    I'm not aware of any problem of system that would cause a Windows Update problem.

    Usually this is impossible on computers with Windows 7.  In almost all cases, you need to go to the store, buy Windows 7 32-bit and use the CD to install it on your computer.  This also requires the deletion of your system, you will need to reinstall all your programs and settings.

    I don't understand. What makes you think the reader 'is not compatible' with Windows 7? Windows (or any other OS besides) sees no external hard drives as "compatible" or not...

  • How do I share files on Xbox 360 without Windows Media Player or 3rd Party applications

    Windows 7 sharing media files to the xbox 360 without media player

    I know that I can use Media Player 12 in windows 7 to share files on xbox 360 using the libraies, but I used to be able to share without media player and I would like to be able to do it again, but I can't seem to get my shared folders will appear on xbox. I don't know if I need to use folders to share public or not, but someone has all the answers on this for me?

    I use my xbox 360 to watch the video content streamed from my PC pretty much every night through a continuous connection to the xbox. You do not need Media Player or any other 3rd party application to video media IF THEY ARE THE RIGHT SIZE for a XBOX, you just need the PC configured for videos, turned on and networked with the xbox

    It is simple and quick, and depending on the content, there are two methods that I use:

    (1) as Etzel42 has described - in Windows 7 Control Panel > network and sharing Center, go to Advanced sharing > Media Streaming, select "chose the flowing media options...» ». If the Xbox 360 is running and put in place on the same (Local) network as the PC it will be displayed here but the value "blocked." Just change "Authorized" and click ok. (If you do not see the Xbox 360 listed here then the Xbox and PC cannot see each other on the network. You must address this issue before anything else).

    Once that streaming media is running, the video files you want to share with the Xbox is in addition to your video library. This can be done in en allant going to the computer, right-click on the 'Vidéos' library, go to 'Properties', then include the video or files to share. As a double check that all video files are available for the Xbox, open Media Player and see if he can see all the files/folders that you added. Close Media Player now, you do not need it works for watching videos on the xbox

    Now, go to the Xbox, go to the dashboard in my Xbox and video library. You should see the name of your PC as a selection. Open it and then open the folders that you added to PCs video shops and once again, if media files are in the right play on the Xbox, watch now format!

    (2) configure the Xbox Extender and Windows Media Center, and then run Media Center on the Xbox, this will allow you to play any kind of media format on the Xbox that you can play on the PC. It is ideal to play the Xbox formats cannot be opened natively too, it's pretty darn picky.

    In both methods you have not need of any application is running on the PC. Simply be turned on and available for the Xbox via the network. The Xbox will do the rest. In fact, one nice feature of the library on the Xbox 360 is that if your PC is in standby (Sleep), Media Center will wake up the PC.

    No, it doesn't have the right to sell you software NFR and if he hid this information, then its wrong.

    Your best decision is to try to get the refund by the dealer, then report him. If it doesn't, don't threaten them. Simply report them to ebay and report to Microsoft Piracy.

    Make sure that you have received as proof of purchase.

  • I tried to install CS3 with a serial number from my old computer to my new windows 7.  I tried installing and uninstalling. I've been on the cat

    I've been tryig to install CS3 with a serial number from my old computer to my new computer windows 7.  I have installed and reinstalled and rebooted the computer, takes off firewall and everything I know to do.  I was chatting to Adobe several times during the day and nobody seems to be able to help me refocus on my computer. This is the message I get when I put in place: you can only install a single Adobe product at a time.  Please fill out the other installation before installing Adobe CS 3.  I had a computer specialist to analyze it and try to help me, even the screen sharing and could not understand it.  He told me to call Adobe and as you know there is no one to help you live that can be very frustrating when you've spent the day and exhausted all options.  I know it worked on my computer and the fact yet but I use is more than one.  Can you or someone from Adobe please fix this.

  • This could be a new one for you. When I start firefox, my W7 machine loses its aero frame and looks like Windows 95, but worse yet, because the colors are grainy.

    For some reason, starting today, when I open Firefox, immediately the screen turns black momentarily, then icons and task bars turn gray and low resolution, (specifically a Windows 95-skin), images become badly pixelated and almost unreadable fonts (clear type crashes, I presume). Also the number of colors decreases considerably, so that it looks like Windows 95 or even much earlier! I restarted my computer several times, but he won't shake it. This behavior is quite inexplicable. Help, please.

    I am running Firefox 38.0.5 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1, to date, on a 64-bit, 4 GB RAM, Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU P7450 2.13 GHz.

    I took a screenshot, but it does not load in the image box add here.

    Hello, please click on the icons on the desktop firefox, then go to Properties > compatibility. Make sure that none of the parameters are selected...
