My attempts to search for files and folders in My Documents, following the instructions on the Microsoft Web site, do not have (no 'result' list appears). Can anyone help?

The site says to type the name of a file or folder in the box search to start or the libraries search box.  Produces no result.  Is there something I can do?

  • After format and install Win XP Home and SP3 why can't open the Microsoft web sites?

    Need help, guys

    I had to replace my HARD drive in my computer. I installed my Windows XP Home SP2 disc. After installation, I used my SP3 upgrade drive and my drive to upgrade to IE8. After you install all my drivers, I tried to get Windows dates and discovered that I could not access the Microsoft web sites. I get Internet Explorer cannot display this page. I tried to find out why this is happening and how to correct the situation, but have not found an answer that works yet. Can someone give me an answer to this question.

    I have another (used) computer that I formatted the HDD installed and on Windows 7 and have had no problems to access the Microsoft web sites on. It uses the same modem cable like the other computer so I guess that everything is ok with my Internet connection. This problem seems to be only with Windows XP Home SP 3.

    Think in advance for any help

    Btk (billy the kid)

    Please do not share in the whole "BOLD". Which makes it hard to read!

    Please check that SP3 is installed:
    Start | Run
    Type:
    winver
    Press OK.
    Also, tell us what you mean by "trying to get Windows dates" since there are two ways to do this!

    Or you can also borrow the same exact retail edition DVD of Windows 7 and use your product key to reinstall.

    The COA sticker with the product key is either or in the battery compartment on the underside of the laptop.

    With a desktop computer, it's on the side, the back or the top of the computer case.

    If you have problems with Activation:

    If it does require phone activation, do not follow Demand of Auto, but brace yourself for a real person explain as to what has been done for purposes of re-setup
