Q: [SOLVED] Download but cannot find IE after install !!!

I encounter the most mystic problems lately--- I am running Firefox (latest v.) but need to download and use IE. Went to MS site, downloaded and 'installed' IE 8 (after deleting some hidden IE 7 installation). Now I cannot find IE8 anyplace to activate it. I'm running XP PRO SP3 (fully legal---) and am confused to the till...Whazz happening???

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Download but cannot find IE after install !!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If Kapersky acts like Panda, then what you downloaded was an activeX module and can be only used while online connected to their site.

I want to buy more RAM for my labtop because right now I only have 240 MB of the stuff. I need to find out what type I have and I know I need to get to my motherboard to find that out. The problem is... I don't know how to do that. I Have a Toshiba Statellite labtop with Windows XP, Home Edition, 2002 Version. Also I have an intel processor. I know practically nothing about computers and would appreciate any help.

A:Solved: Want to install more Ram but can't find my Motherboard

Go here and use the scanner to scan your system by putting in the model number for your Laptop: www.crucial.com
It is amongst the best ram and guaranteed to match. My guess is you have only two slost in there which means the only way you can do this is buy 2 new sticks 1 gb each and toss what I would bet are 2 512's in the unit but Crucial should also tell us how many slots there are.

I need some help in re-installing XP-Pro. My hard drive has 3 partitions and I was hoping to overwrite the OS in the C: partition without destroying the Program or Data partitions. After reassigning the boot device and booting from the XP CD, it is not able to find any of the 3 partitions and will not proceed from there. From this point though, I am able to fall back to where the existing XP will still run; so why can't the installation process find them?
Thanks in advance...

Help! Trying to install XP on a WD Raptor 74. Asus A8V, VIA 8237 chip board. BIOS recognizes the drive. Set as first boot. XP couldn't find it. Files load, but soon, it complains about no HDD. Next, tried the contents of \DRVDISK directory from the VIA Hyperion 509 directory as copied to a floppy; this inserted with F6 (using a floppy drive outside the case), XP recognizes new RAID files, but soon enough, I again get the message that XP can't find a HDD. (No RAID BTW.. one Raptor only.)

Is there something else I am missing here? tia

While working on another computer problem it was detected that my DVD drive was not being recognized by the computer (and is of course not operable). I went to the manufacturer's website (LG) to look for the driver(s), but the only software available for my model was an updated firmware program, but I was unable to install that as well.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the DVD drive, but that had no effect. I do not have a backup disk for my system or data, and after a lengthy period a working on another problem I am very leery about doing any system restore for fear of reinstalling my other recent problems.

Any suggestions on how I can find the appropriate drivers and install them for my DVD? It seems very likely that my current driver(s) have been corrupted somehow, but I have been unable to locate replacements. As you can see from the attachment, my DVD, which is manufactured by LG, is a model HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H42L (or just "GSA-H42L").

Thanks for looking.

Hello, everyone. Thank you for trying to help me.

I'm trying to install a copy of Windows 2000 on an older computer. I obtained Win2k through a student service a few years ago; actual CD's weren't offered, the whole program had to been downloaded. Years later, having graduated college, I'm trying to now install that Win2K on a computer in bad need of an OS upgrade, but I can't find the Product ID. I had somehow obtained it and wrote it down, but now can't find the note. I don't know if the service gave it to me, or if I somehow go it from one of the installation files.

I know I'm stupid for losing my notes, but perhaps someone here can help me re-obtain that Product ID. Perhaps there is a program that can pull it out of the installation files?

Anyway, thank you for any help that can be provided, and thank you again for reading this topic and giving it a go!

I have read the sticky but i am having a problem beyond that scope i believe. I cannot click on any button that says download or install, install exe files have icons that have changed and the worst part is i have a text file in "my documents" that is titled "AVSDK5_UNINST". If you read it, it seems to be a log file of commands that appears to have disabled my anti virus software. I have system mechanic and AVG Internet security.
The AVG side bar tool says "cannot find AVG services". I have windows 7 ultimate BTW.
should I copy and paste the log here and see what everyone thinks by looking at the command lines?
any help would be great.

i should mention that I just did a clean install due to other viruses that my wife downloaded off of supposed coupon sites. about 20 or 30 trojans and a back door.

A:[SOLVED] Can't find/install proper Network Controller driver

Hi everyone, I found a solution for this. I've downloaded the proper Driver from this link:http://support.hp.com/my-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/HP-Pavilion-g6-1300-Notebook-PC-series/5186808/model/5218300/swItemId/ob-95652-2 After extraction, it will start the setup and that error will appear again. Nonetheless, do the following after that error: 1. Locate the extraction file. [You can see the address during extraction after you click on the downloaded file.] 2. Go to Device Manager, right click on Network Controller and click on Update Driver Software. 3. Choose to do it manually. Locate the folder of extraction [I mentioned earlier]. 4. Done! * Remember that in order to get the best driver, you should IDENTIFY YOUR PRODUCT AUTOMATICALLY through HP website and then go to its drivers! Regards

I have just replaced the IDE Harddisk on a compaq laptop with a new one. Trying to do a fresh install of Windows XP, before I can format this new disk, I get the following message...

" Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program. Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3 "

Going into the bios, I dont find anywhere that mentions SATA as in a number of forums advise to disable that in order for the computer to detect the IDE disk.

Anyone familiar with this to help with a solution?

You need your drivers for IDE/SATA depending on which it is, go to your motherboard manufacter's website and get the Storage or Sata or IDE driver from there. There should be something abnout a floppy drive and you will need to download that driver and put it on a floppy. You will then Press F6 before that screen pops up and let it see the driver and it should work

Please help.  Thank you.
TO CLARIFY: Entering the product key on the microsoft windows 7 download page in order to do the download is where the key fails, not during installation.  I can't even get past the download approval.

i have a process running (dfsvc) that's downloading an installation file. i want to know how i can find the file that's being created by the download so i can save it before it's deleted (at completion of the install).

A:Find the Download

DFSVC is most likely a Windows update.

If that is the case there will be an automatic install and it may be difficult to get the file that does not include that feature.

With any MS update however, if not set to automatic, you can see the MS article within it, and then have the ability to download it as a seperate file, so that it can be kepts within a file.

I've been extremely frustrated with both the screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues.  I figured before I buy a laptop from another company that I would at least try a reformat. I was expecting devices to not be fully installed after the reformat but Device Manager does not show any issues.  PC is also running fine besides the fact that the trackpad doesn't right click properly and the resolution is off which probably can be addressed by installing the proper drivers.  What else should I install, though?

A:Yoga 2 Pro - fresh install of Windows 10 - what should we install from Lenovo's download page?

Download/install Lenovo System Interface Foundation for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit)...IdeaPad.... That should install, among other things, Lenovo Vantage (ex-Companion.) Use its System Update function to find drivers/updates, download and install them on your system. You don't have to install everything but if you have "screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues" then I'd make sure to at least get the latest chipset, display, video, power management, etc. drivers.
P.S. If you suspect that particular driver(s) may be causing issues, then install them one at a time to identify which one(s) are bad.

Hey everybody,

I'm building another new PC, I'm at this point where I'm loading Windows XP Media, I bought it brand new from Newegg. I got stopped in my tracks and I'm now asked for a disc of Windows XP2 to load before I can go any further, dam!!!! where can I get this copy??? do you know where the web site is for that. please don't tell me to go to microsoft, I've been everywhere to find that there are at least 50 versions of SP2, I tried to down load one and all it seems to do is want to load it on my computer rather than to disc.

This is not right, I don't know where to go to down load this file, can someone please point the way to the web link page and shove my nose into it

This is not fair, I bought the Win XP media, it does not say it was an update, its a full version, so why did it short me on what I nee dto install it. there was a third disk, in addition to the 1 and 2 XP media install disc's there is a 3rd disc, its calledout as a Win XP media center addition updates for 2005 version. now I did load this disc in and it did not work, so I figured this was something else, or what??? but there was no SP2 on it, unless I don't know what the heck to do with it????

thanks so much

This is my first post on this forum. I am a "silver surfer" with basic PC knowledge, so please "be gentle with me".

I have recently changed PCs and took the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 7 Home Edition 32 bit. All has gone well, except:-

I have a small (80Gb) external drive, on to which I copied all my pictures and some other "My Documents" data from my old PC under Windows XP. When I plug this in to any USB port on the new machine, the power light comes on, but nothing else happens. If I click on COMPUTER, the drive does not show. However, another smaller drive (as well as my Kindle) are both recognised, whichever USB port I use.

If I go to Devices and Printers, the drive is listed as "Unspecified" and as "USB to ATA/ATAPI Bridge". Windows Troubleshooter reports "Couldn't identify the problem" but also saying "This device is working properly".

So I then tried, via Control Panel>System>Admin>Create and Format>Disc Drive to have Windows find a driver, but it replies "Couldn't find driver". Since I do not know the manufacturer of the disc drive (2.5" SATA), how can I find and download the driver - if, indeed, that is the problem?

I have purchased a program called Driver Detective, but that came up with nothing.

Any help, preferably in non technical language, would be gratefully appreciated.

A:When i try to download rar files i get find? help?

Hi, windows vista does not come with anything that can open an rar file. .rar is a compressed file, simular to zip. You would need a program like WinRaR to open a file like this.
WinRaR might have a trail , I don't remember, sorry I don't use rar files that much, but you do have to pay for most programs that can open rar files, but there are some out there that can open them for free.
