Hi William79,

Windows 7 Compatibility Center

Help with Windows 7 compatibility issues
Make older programs in this version of Windows (Windows 7)

Have you tried right clicking on the shortcut to the program or the .exe and select "Run As Administrator"? Perform, even if your user name is an administrator. Try right click on the actual Setup.exe and choosing the option "Run As Administrator"? Perform, even if your user name is an administrator.

Windows Virtual PC
Download Windows XP Mode

Windows XP Mode (Windows 7 only, but not one of the Home versions) "you are not eligible to download Windows XP Mode. You must have Windows 7 Professional, enterprise or full to run Windows XP Mode." If you have an old XP CD (or other older Windows CD) available you can simply download the Virtual Machine and spend the XP Mode download. This warranty covers the gambit set of VMS in the 'Home' versions if you want to have a look. Of course you will need a licensed copy of XP to install and run in any of them (except XP Mode).

VirtualBox is an impressive VM competitor

hope this helps,

    I keep getting error messages when I try to download adobe flash player. I have a new computer with windows 7 64 bit home premium installed. I need to upgrade to a better version of windows 7, such as pro or ultimate? I'm pretty sure that Internet Explorer is a 32-bit version with this operating system. But I can not find all 32-bit versions of Flash Player download. I tried to download another version of IE, a 64-bit version, but when it was all over I had the same version again.

    In addition, my windows Explorer freezes and restarts sometimes. Don't know why, the machine starts to slow down and then the articles are non-compliant, then explore shuts down and restarts.

    Why things just don't work? :)

  • 7300 series all-in-one software does not load in windows 8.1

    I have a 7310xi all in one. I recently installed a new desktop running windows 8.1. the connection is wireless. I can get the printer to print properly but cannot load the software. I need the software to be able to scan etc. I downloaded several times, uninstalled and reinstalled and still get the same result (I purge the temp file after each attempt). Everything goes very well with the download until the actual installation screen comes up. Once I hit the installation I get the message "the system cannot find the file specified." I tried hanging the printer with a USB port and still get the same results. I tried using the Dominican Republic printing HP, the installation wizard and continue to get the same thing. If I could determine precisely what file is not found maybe I could find it. I made sure all updates are running on the computer and tried something that sounded even close, I can fing on HP website. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, Mike

    Hi Mike1949.

    Sorry for the delay. You'll need get corrupted files fixed before you can install because they are the source of installation problems. To do this, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your computer (IE. HP, Dell) to get help with the files.

    Let me know how it goes.

  • Windows does not load after Windows update on January 8, 2010

    Basically, I've updated windows last night and is gone to bed and after I myself woke up and turned on the computer, windows won't load.

    There was an option to repair, but he says "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

    So I ran the hardware test and everything was fine.  I tried to do a system restore... but it is come to the same, exact screen stating that «Startup Repair cannot...» ». I tried to run in safe mode and exactly the same result.

    I don't want to try to restore the computer to factory settings and lose everything I have.

    Help, please!

    Windows Update Forum:

    You will get the best help for any problem of Update/Service Pack in the Windows Update Forum; the link below:

    When you repost here, kindly include Error Codes, as appropriate, and exactly what happened when you did the update last night.

    In this way, you will receive the best help.


    If the worst happens, follow these steps below for data recovery before reinstallling:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

    See you soon.

  • A page on a site does not load in Windows 10 or El Capitan

    From about two weeks, when I try to access with the current version of Firefox on Windows 10, I can't. It is not that I get an error message, it's just like the page no longer exists, and I redirected to the main site. I tried in safe mode, and the same thing happens. This just started today on El Capitan, which I've been using since yesterday. This page has been in a tab permanently for years without any problem. In addition, it still works in Chrome, so I know it's still there. Any ideas? Thank you.

    This means generally that a driver or a third-party plugin was the cause of the accident.

    Make sure that you have updated your website of the manufacturer of the GPU video card driver.

    And if you have any third-party plugins installed, disable them until you can update.
