He just used automatically dictate the correct program... and I don't know what programs use or even where to go to find the right program... any help to solve this or if I need to reintstall let me know please...

    Let me soce entry details:

    1. all computers need to have at least one administrator account. It will not work without it.
    It does NOT, however, create a profile For YOU defaultAdmin. It belongs to the user or the owner to create and decide who is Admin, and who is a regular user.
    2. even an admin account will not get to install and change the settings automatically. UAC (user account control) always appears to ask for confirmation of the task by clicking on continue, or by typing the admin password.
    3 be the main user is not to be an administrator. It is up to the user/owner of the computer to be configured as such.
    That said, now my question... How do you know that you're not an admin?

  • I bought a new hard drive. I don't have a system recovery disk. Can I load Windows Vista from another source and activate using my original product key?

    I bought a new hard drive. I don't have a system recovery disk. Can I load Windows Vista from another source and activate using my original product key?

    Hello

    There is no download available from Microsoft Vista.

    Contact the manufacturer of your laptop and ask them to send a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/326246

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key determines which Edition is installed.

    Builders recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    See you soon.

    p.s. If the old hard drive is still installed and running before you change on hard drives and you never received the to purchase recovery discs, you can make the recovery discs from the recovery Partition which should be on the old hard drive. You will need to request that the manufacturer how to do as each computer manufacturer has their own way of making records of this partition recovery.

    It depends on the old hard drive still works.

  • I always have to specify to open with Internet Explorer or other programs

    Original title: A link can not remember which program to start

    I have a machine with Vista and and when I get an email with a link to the internet - a PDF file, a site, or something else, I can't just click on the link - a dialog box appears and I have to specify witch program to start with - I don't then tap Internet Explorer and check the "Allways" and click on OK - but next time I have to once again!

    I tried right click and use 'Open with' and still tick "Allways" - but same result!

    How can I make the program witch visit remember to use in the future?

    I don't know what Outlook Express - 110%!

    It's a computer for my aunt and I distance control - me, he looked like initially to Vista, but need XP then.

    But the problem is that he doesn't remember witch program to start when you click on a link - not only in a mail, but on the desktop too!

    I tried to use 'Open with' and point to IE and checked "Always", but the next time she click it asks new witch program to start.

    We had been going round in circles in 2 different threads. It all comes down to confusion about which operating system and subsequently e-mail you what program use.
