Preferred Solution: Question. Vista compatible programs?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Question. Vista compatible programs?

Hi, before worring too much about programs have you checked out the Vista update advisor download?http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/...mg_id=10008VHb1The programs you have mentioned that work ok on my machine are AVG,FireFox,Google Earth the rest I dont know. As for games be warned some games do not like Vista and run a lot slower under Vista.

The program that I want to uninstall is not compatible with vista and is not listed on the program files therefore I cannot remove it. I have tried system restore to a point before installation but this is coming up with an error so will not restore. Is there any other way? The software I want to remove was for the HP psc 2100 printer.

A:Uninstalling Programs Not Compatible With Vista

Is it an HP PSC 2100 or some other 2100 model? Looks like there are 2105 through 2179 series printers. You need the exact model number. It looks like there are Vista drivers for all of the 2100 series drivers listed. Try http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodTop...;cc=us&dlc= and see if it has a compatible driver.

Okay I'm currently running Vista Home Premium 64bit and I was wondering if there are any programs that are unneeded. From what I understand people call them "bloatware". Things I don't need taking up my space and power. Any information on this? Thanks for your help =-)

A:Question on unneeded Vista Programs

Hello AsusRoG, and welcome to Vista Forums.

These are usually programs that say came preinstalled on a store bought (OEM) computer that are either trial ware or junk. It's really up to you to decide on what is useful to you or not, so you might give them a try for a bit before uninstalling them.

Hope this helps,

I've decided to try my hand at building my own PC. I intend it to be a medium - high end gaming computer. I've got everything figured out (at least I hope) I'm just wanting a second opinion about my choice of motherboard and CPU. I'm pretty sure they are compatible, at least in theory, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them, or any advice for me. Hey, if you feel like it, recommend something bigger and better. I have a pretty good budget for this (within reason of course, nothing too outrageous).

CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, with Fan (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4016668&CatId=3496)

Motherboard : FX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3930721&CatId=13)

One big question I have, however, is whether a GeForce 8800GT graphics card with its super long design would fit correctly or at all in that motherboard. The 2nd PCI-E slot has to be the first one used, so I couldn't put it in the top slot. I think it would fit, but not quite sure.

Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to have a read through this, and an extra thanks to anyone with any advice or comments.
 

A:Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

why can u not use the first slot? the only problem should be with the case. put the mem. in before u put the video card in.

Bought a new laptop and been having problems with bsod every day, which came up as Driver IRQL not less or equal and further down, tcpip.sys. I left it at the sellers for a check-up and they could find no problems but will be restoring it to default. My question is what programs are safe to install when I get it back? The only programs I had installed on it were PC Tools Spyware Doctor, Norton and Microsoft Office (also normal applications like lastfm and spotify.) Are any of these known to be incompatible with Windows 7? Some forums have been saying bad things about PC Tools, some about Norton, and recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Can anyone give any input about what programs are better/worse or proven to make the system unstable? Would be much appreciated //Anna

A:programs compatible with windows 7?

The error was most likely caused by out of date drivers (more than likely vista drivers) being loaded on the system. We see that here several times a day if not more. Many of the bsod problems in win 7 are either over zealous security programs, or bad drivers. The remaining few generally being caused by bad hard ware. The techs at the seller are rarely properly qualified to diagnose these issues. The people that are get higher paying jobs in the IT sector.

Anyhow if the problem occurs after you get it back you can follow the bsod posting instructions here http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

and let the bsod troubleshooters here have a crack at helping you with it.

Here is an paragraph from an article listed at
http://www.winplanet.com/winplanet/tips/3502/1
TIP 7. Don't Ask for Virus Problems

Most users have antivirus software installed either at work or home. If you don't, you definitely need to invest, not only in a package of software, but in the subscription to the updates. Office XP is a new product and your antivirus software may not be compatible. All reputable vendors have upgrades to integrate with Office XP. If you are having problems with the latest updates for your antivirus software, contact the software vendor immediately and ask for the update/upgrade that is compatible with Office XP.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

However reviewing many AV products only one lists XP as compatible. Draw your own conclusion upon review. It is possible
the programs can be upgraded or already cover XP but their websites do not mention that.

I'm looking to put more RAM into my laptop; I wasn't sure if this should be posted here or in another place.. my apologies if I've put it in the wrong place.

I have a Gateway Laptop, model ML6720. I currently have two sticks of RAM, 512MB each, the info for them is: 512MB 2rX16 PC2-5300

Before I make the purchase, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the Crucial stick would work well with my machine? I've never replaced the RAM on my laptop before, so I'm nervous about it.

I went onto the Gateway website and tried to match the info with the new RAM as best I could; I think I got it right. I'm just looking for a little more input.

best or most compatible - meaning which will not slow down the performance of my machine in terms of cpu & memory usage; that'll not conflict with azureus or uTorrent. and especially firewall that'll not be noisy & annoying or just doesn't keep on prompting for warning & asking permission or anything in that manner while azureus is downloading.

You are quite right about having a firewall and using it. I might suggest Sygate Personal Firewall, since it allows you to manage permissions by application, and is light on resources.

A:Question about theCorsair CX 600 compatible?

If you purchased a gtx 660, I assume you intend to game with the system. The cx line from corsair is NOT for gaming systems. It is ok for a basic build ie running onboard/onchip video, running office, email, etc. It is just not up to the stress of gaming. Corsair does not mfg their own pw supplies. The cx line is mfg by ctw [maker of oem stuff] The "real" corsairs ie HX, TX, AX are mfg by seasonic [maker of very high end stuff.

With a cx corsair, you have the equivalent of a dell or hp pw supply.

If you are asking if it will fit, your case uses a standard atx pw supply so yes it will fit however it is NOT recommended for gaming.

A:Question about Windows 7 Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

The Programs and Features listing is shown to you by the Explorer app. Each time that you open/close the Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a folder (or a special view/list like the Programs and Features listing), Explorer tries to write info to the registry about how Explorer was showing you that folder. Windows (file) Explorer tries to write this "how to display a folder" info at other times besides just closing an Explorer window, but I'll not go into all of that.

Microsoft has not solved the problem that happens when these places in the registry get too big. When this happens, you may see the problem that you are experiencing - that of no longer being able to store the layout/view/column width/column selection/... info in the registry.

Below is video that I made showing registry keys being made. (I'm not suggesting that you mess with the registry.) Notice that new keys are made when visiting the folder named Temp. Deleting this Temp folder does not remove those registry keys. If you close Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a compressed folder (a ZIP file), the Explorer app tries to make keys so that it can remember how it last showed you that folder. If you delete or move that ZIP folder to another location, the original registry keys remain. So you can see how this area of the registry can fill up.

edit: I had to make this video again. I hope that I covered all of the original points.

A:Not Vista compatible

Most Photo editing programs can access scanners. Since HP's Twain driver does not work in Vista, it's still possible that Windows WIA driver 'might' work. (for scanning)
In Irfanview, you would go to 'File', 'Select Twain Source'. If a WIA driver shows up, select it. Next, click 'File', 'Acquire/Batch Scanning'.

Other Photo editing programs should be similar. I don't know if will work, but worth a try. If you don't have any editing programs, Irfanview can be downloaded here:http://www.irfanview.com/
It's small, fast, and free.

A:XP compatible with Vista?

Hey nnnever,

I have heard that running XP and Vista on the same computer can cause problems. One that I had when trying to do this is that when you boot to XP it deletes the system restore files.

And another thing. I don't think that you can just pull out the XP hard drive and put it in the new computer and expect it to work.

I have Vista and I use Microsoft Virtual Machine to run Windows XP inside Windows Vista.

You could just get rid of the problem altogether and swipe the drive that has Windows Vista on it and then just use XP.

I don't really know what happened or how to fix things, so I would really appreciate your help!

I downloaded a .exe file that I 75% trust with uTorrent while I was away from the computer. Upon returning, I saw a message that Panda antivirus security had blocked some form of traffic, but I can't recall the exact message.

When I tried to open the finished .exe torrent, the computer slowed down and uTorrent wasn't responding so I pressed ctrl+alt+delete to open the menu for the task manager.

When the blue task manager screen did not come up, I can't remember if I tried to open the .exe file again or if I opened Firefox via the quicklaunch shortcut on the bottom left taskbar.

At this point, I believe Mozilla firefox would not open, and an error messege came up saying "firefox is an invalid torrent file." All three program icons in the quicklaunch section had the uTorrent icon. I tried one of them, Yahoo IM, and received the same error.

Since I thought yahoo and firefox were trying to open via uTorrent, I changed firefox's opener program back to firefox by right clicking and selecting "open with."

After this, firefox would open properly, but now every program that had uTorrent's icon then had firefox's icon. Clicking yahoo IM's quicklaunch button caused yahoo IM to try to use firefox as the opener.

I have NO IDEA what is going on and this has never happened before. I have uninstalled the IM and tried to reinstall, but the .exe file provided... Read more

I don't know what has happened. After installing Daemon Tools, I restart my computer and none of my startup programs run. I try 3 system restore points where this wasn't occuring and it still happens. When I click any desktop icons other than things like My Computer, Control Panel, etc. they are not opening. What has happened and what can I do? The only programs I've installed recently are TeamViewer 4, a game called Archlord, SWiSH Max 2, and that Daemon Tools. What can I do?

A:Help! Vista Premium x64 suddenly not loading programs on startup and no programs run!

I would try un-installing the programs one by one. If un-installing them does not work....go into safe mode and try removing them. If that does not work, I would use system restore to go back to when your computer was working. Good luck.

Hi to everyone!
I'm looking for a Vista Compatible FAX application, since the Vista Fax&Scanner inside Vista O.S. does not allow its backup.
I've tried to insert my saved faxes in the default folder, after a clean installation of Vista, but they are no more visible when I click on SentItems.
I see they are in the ri?ght folder ( C:ProgramData>Microsoft>WindowsNT>MSFax>SentItems) but it is impossible to see them clicking on the left side of the GUI of the Fax&Scanner application.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and sorry for my bad English.

I would like to ask that if games such as Zoo Tycoon or Bus Driver or 18 WoS Pedal to the Medal are Vista Compatible. Those games were released prior to the realease of Vista, and I haven't found patches for them yet. If there are patches for any of those game, tell me! If they are Vista compatible, tell me! If they work in compatibility mode, tell me! I need solutions, because the last few times I started Bus Driver and 18 WoS Pedal to the Medal on Vista, my whole PC crashed. PLEASE HELP!

A:Which Games Are Vista Compatible?

Try running pedal to the Metal with 'xp sp2 compatibility and 'run as admin'

(right-click icon, select properties>compatibility)


Zoo tycoon should work.

Bus driver may or may not work with compatibility mode.

Firefox 3.0.8 kinda sucks. I was unable to enable cookies by any chance. I would recommended use alternatives like Safari, IE 8 or Google Chrome till final release of mozilla.

"make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .dll files. The specified module could not be found" Is prnadmin.dll actually vista compatible?
