What is the best ytem turned on a computer at home


Hello Karimanweiler,

If you want to continue using Windows XP, then the last Pack of Service that has been released for XP's SP3. If you want to install Windows 7, you must run this: to see if there are problems with the upgrade of your system. As for this operating system would be better, it would depend on what your hardware can handle. No operating system must always have the latest updates installed.

Remember that the life cycles of operating systems can determine which operating system you want to have as well. They can be found here:

I have advanced and moved your thread for Windows XP install, upgrade and activate Forum since your question was about more than upgrade your system then update because you have posted in Forum WIndows XP update

  • Why is windows 7 better than professional?

    I was wondering why is windows 7 better than professional, because I want to see what features ultimate has this professional is not

    Ultimate has some extra multimedia features, such as Windows Media Center.  It also has the ability to run multiple languages, I think. In addition, there is not much difference.  And if you do not need to connect to a domain, home edition Premium you will probably give everything that you need and want (and more).

  • After you have installed the free updates for Vista Home Premium 64 bit, Windows will not start

    After that I installed the free updates to service pack 1, the system goes through 2 of the 3 steps, while it recharges, then the system does not boot?  To get the computer to work again, I need to run the repairer of Windows, which allows you to restore the system to an earlier point?  Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

    Do your system restore, then:

    Click Start > right click on computer > properties > Windows updates down the lower left corner > updates installed in the lower left corner in the next window

    > then click the one that you don't want > uninstall will appear at the top > uninstall it.


    In addition, on the page where you clicked "Installed updates", click on change settings at the top left corner it

    > Change update settings in the next page of AutoUpdate to "check for updates but let me choose etc" > OK ".

    When you take a look at pending updates, you can either download/install them one at the time, namely the update causing you problems.

    > or if you do not need an individual > right-click on > UAC prompt > hide it

    See you soon.

  • Cannot resize the window as we have after the new update for Firefox

    This morning, Firefox installed an automatic update, and after that, I can't resize the window to a smaller proportion. First of all, let me explain why I do this.

    We have a local Web page to work where we can keep track of some of the statistics, and it is the only area that I need to post. This area I used to reduce the FF window, move until it was in my opinion and freeze it above all other windows (custom AHK script).

    The problem now is that FF resize to the size, it stops at a certain minimum width. Height is no problem, I can resize the height until he is "gone", but the width to a static limit stops.

    Example: Earlier I was able to resize to 500px width, but now it stops at 700px width and will not go lower. Earlier, this could go, like, 10-20px width.

    A bug, or is there a reason for this?

    It's because of Bug 897160,

  • How can I reinstall safari on the iphone running ios 8.1.3 5 safari disappeared after the last update

    How can I reinstall safari on the iPhone 5 with ios 8.1.3? Safari disappeared after or while I was doing the update.

    Safari is an integrated application and cannot be deleted, but it can be hidden by setting restriction.  Check settings / general / Restrictions and see if Safari is simply disabled.  If not, then it must be somewhere on your iPhone because it can not be deleted, that is maybe it drew into a folder, so use Spotlight search to look for.

  • Satellite P300 and Windows 7 Beta...

    Hey guys...
    I've updated the horrible Vista my P300 accompanying to the new beta version of Windows 7... Most of the features are working properly.
    Here are the problems I encountered.

    * HDMI *-it does not work, but I lose audio via HDMI, if I stop a video. If I am on youtube and I watch a video, the audio will be fine until I have either pause, rewind or fast forward the video, if I click on another video it will also stop working. This is true for any kind of video I watch on the pc... youtube not only... same DVD.
    To get again the audio via HDMI, I have to go to audio devices and speakers for default select computers, and then choose HDMI as default again... then it won't work until I have a break or skip the videos again.

    * Card wireless... *.
    If the P300 switch mode 'sleep', sometimes I won't be able to reconnect to the wireless again. I need to reboot the P300 to get it to connect again.

    I have also 4 or 5 elements in the Manager of devices that are not installed properly... I can't list them because now, I don't have my phone with me.
    Someone else running Windows 7 Beta? If so do you have questions?


    We all know that Windows 7 is still in beta version on the market and official support is not started.
    So, to discuss some issues on Windows 7 is for me certainly unnecessary.

    The drivers, tools, and utilities are not available and if everything works well it OK, otherwise you have to wait for Windows 7 support to start.

    I installed Windows 7 on my Satellite Pro P300 and play around a bit with it, but I wonder if something won t work as it should.

  • installed the latest updates of windows 7... now the computer does not recognize my video files avi... says "format not supported".

    I have installed the latest updates (02/27/10) and when I open sony vegas to edit some files avi... they were offline... when I tried to read with windows media player it says format not supported... before when I played these files, they would not have to synchronize audio... it never happened with my other computer with Vista... system restore solved the problem of format not supported... but so far has caused this problem? and what about the problems of synchronization? the files seem to sync when played with the hp program...

    Hi derlonewolf,
    Because you performed a System Restore you would not be able to determine which update problem from occurring. You will have to wait for the update to your computer to determine the update that caused the problem. The update does not necessarily cause the problem to occur again. However, you can view the history of updates to updating history.
    1. open the control panel (all items view), and click the Windows Update icon.
    2. click on the link to view update history.
    3. to view the details of a single Windows Update-
    (A) select and right-click on a Windows Update list, and then click details.
    (B) click on close when finished.
    As far as the question of timing is concerened, you can scan SFC on your computer and check if the problem persists.

    Steps to perform a scan SFC:
    1. Click Start, click principally made programs, accessories, right-click Guest, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click on allow
    2. type the following command and press ENTER:
    [The command sfc /scannow. analysis of all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions.]
    A message appears indicating that "the system scan will start. Be patient, because the analysis may take some time
    3. If all the files require that a SFC replace will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Win7 DVD for this process to continue
    4. If all goes although you should, after the analysis, see the following message "Windows resource protection not found any breach of integrity.
    5. once the scan is finished, close the command prompt window, restart the computer and check.
    Check the link below for further guidance on scan SFC - mentioned
    You can also make manual updates instead of automatic updates and then see what are updates will be installed on the computer.

  • Windows 7 Beta now Vista SP2 make ipod synchronization impossible.

    I arrived at the time when I was running Windows 7 Beta and now it happened again after that I went back to Vista, but installed SP2 this morning.

    iTunes takes 30secs-5 minutes to synchronize a track to an iPod. After rolling back to SP1 it works fine again. I scoured the Internet looking for people with similar problems but could find only a few, with no solutions. What is - this on these updates that are breaking iTunes on my PC?


    I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems with W7 and sync to iTunes.  Personally, I use Vista and W7 and am an avid itunes user and have yet to see a problem.  You can check out the Windows 7 forum to, may there are some information about compatibility with your system, please keep in mind, if your system is stable before, and you have the Vista drivers they will work with Windows 7, so you can get back at them.
    Thank you

  • When right-clicking on a link and a window opens, I want it ask me "Open Link in New Window" first of all, not the second. This has changed in the last update.

    So I got allows you to right-click on a link and go the first option and open this link in a new window.
    I don't not like tabs, or use them.
    The latest update or version of Firefox has changed this and now
    Open the link in a new tab first, then
    Open the link in a new window.
    My question is, how can I change this back to the way it was.
    Thank you very much

    My problem is the opposite of the OP, but the result is the same. Years of the use of previous versions of Firefox have conditioned me to open links in a new tab by selecting the second choice of right click menu without looking. After a week of trying to readjust in places reversed 'Open link in a new window' and "Open link in a new tab", I'm always unintentionally opening new windows instead of tabs every time after time. The point is, why should I have to adjust (or need a plugin external to solve your problem). YOU TEACHES ME HOW to DO THIS WAY, then why you changed it? Do you think that the reversal is most effective? A task force of new users select the new range? Do you have a taste of trial with Pepsi? Have you adopted Microsoft 'we know what you want better than you' policy? People in the drive of England on the left side of the road with the steering wheel on the right. Maybe it's actually a better way to do it. Maybe we should just rethink all cars new American model in this way and reverse all the signs from one day to the next without any warning - no ads, no choice, do it just because the engineers decided that it is better. While we're here, maybe you should adopt menu 'Ribbon' of MS then. I do sound a little angry or like if I have too much time on my hands? If so, it is because I am and I do not have enough to relearn the same tasks whenever you think of a better way to perform a basic operation. I'm sick of being 'improved' perfectly feasible programs to offers no improvement, only the need for a conversion.
