  • I tried to update Windows Vista Home Edition basic and now it says my version of windows is not genuine, even if I enabled it for years.

    I got my version of windows activated for about 3 years.  I did a bunch of windows updates yesterday when he arrived to service pack 2, it installed and most of it then told me that my version of windows is not genuine.  I'm also infallibly get error messeges that my installer of Modules of Windows has stopped working.   I went to the windows genuine activation tool, and he said he couldn't tell if my windows was genuine or not.  I have a sticker with the product key on the side of my computer.  I tried to call the Activation Center by following the instructions to get the phone number, but my windows vista won't take me to the screen with the support of activation phone numbers.

    Can I get the phone number for support?

    Thank you

    Maybe this can help.
    Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

    General example,
    Please note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .

    When you have finished the configuration of the system, it is recommended to restart everything the router and all computers involved.


    If you have authorization and security problems, check the following settings.

    Point to a folder that wants to share do right click and choose Properties.

    In the properties

    Click on the Security tab shown in the bellows of the photo on the right) and verify that users and their permissions (see photo below Centre and left) are configured correctly. Then do the same for the authorization tab.

    This screen shot is to Win 7, Vista menus are similar.


    The Security Panel and the authorization Panel, you need to highlight each user/group and consider that the authorization controls are verified correctly.

    When everything is OK, restart the network (router and computer).

  • Need for basic Windows Vista Home Edition recovery media

    I lost my windows vista home basic DVD. I have my key windows vista with me. can I get a duplicate dvd or can I use another dvd with my cd key?

    Read the info below re borrow a Vista DVD.

    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.


    Also ask them if it is possible to do the recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    MS advice on the conduct of clean install.

    A tutorial on the use of a clean install

    Super Guide Windows Vista Installation

    After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.

    Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.

  • ReadyNas Duo and problem of compatibility between Windows Vista?

    Hi all

    I currently have the installer to readynas duo work that is used to store and share files / information to 3 other computers that are connected wirelessly (I think?). The problem is that when you try to access the files on it, they are extremely slow to load, and sometimes come as "not responding" but finally after load up to 3-5 minutes, which of course is not optimal for a work desk. This slow loading time occurs on 2 of the 3 computers, that it works great on windows 7, the other two are vista.
    This could be a compatibility issue with vista or a problem with the duo of nas? IM leaning towards a problem vista as windows system 7 works fine without any problems.
    any help appreciated thanks

    Could be a problem with Vista. This area was redesigned in Windows 7.
