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.)


Hi - I'm hoping someone can help. Since upgrading to Windows 8 (from 7) a week ago my Outlook 2010 email has been faulty. It keeps stopping emails coming in or out and I have to (daily) run a 'repair' to get it to work. I contacted my ISP (Virgin) and they said that Outlook doesn't work with Windows 8 and said I should use Live. However, I then added my accounts to Live but it wouldn't accept all of them, and I found the interface very hard to use. Outlook contains all my business folders and email records for my business so I need it to work. It seems to accept my IMAP email account but not the main accounts with my ISP.

My HP desktop machine is less than a year old and has plenty of memory. But also, in general the machine is slower and won't restart (I have to force shut down).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm tearing my hair out!

A:Outlook 2010 not working properly since upgrade to Windows

Use windows live essentials 2012 and the mail client there. It is almost identical to outlook and optimized for windows 8. I have office 2010 and use excel, word, and PowerPoint, but as for an email client I found that live essentials runs faster, smoother, and you can do pretty much everything you can do on outlook.

Do not use the mail app tile that came with windows. It blows.

AMD 8-way, 8GB, 250Gb SSD, 1TB 3.5 HDD, 2xDVI Discrete video card, basically high-end everything
or a high-end computer we built in house we noticed that the Windows version we received was actually Windows 7 Enterprise.  After two different SSD's showed Bad Boot Sectors failures, we wanted to eliminate
the 7 Enterprise version as a issue and purchased from a major on line vendor Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.   

The first one came in clearly labeled Window 7 Professional 64b but the installation displayed Windows 7 Enterprise.    I immediately ordered another copy from a different vendor, the software came delivered with both 32b and 64b DVDs and is again
clearly labeled  Windows 7 Professional.  HOwever the installaion shows Enterprise.

I am extremely frustrated with the issue my computer has developed ever since I upgraded to Windows 10. I have a Dell Inspiron 7537 and any time I try to close my laptop lid, thus activating the sleep mode, the monitor turns off but the computer does not fully go into sleep mode. I can still hear the fan running and my light-up keyboard remains lit. In addition, if leave it with the lid closed for a long time, upon attempting to wake the computer, I find that it is overheating and won't wake up. I have to hold down the power button and force shutdown. Because of this issue I resorted to powering down the laptop, however, I experienced similar problems. When I click the Windows key and elect the Power - Shut down feature, I get the same problems as described above.
I have tried everything to resolve this issue. I have updated all my drivers, including video, bios, chipset, etc. I have uninstalled Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver. I have tried changing all the power options to high performance, then balanced performance, etc. I have contacted Dell support who have run all sorts of scans but no resolution. I have contacted Microsoft Answer Desk several times and they have been completely useless. Very quickly you can determine that they don't know what they are doing. One agent suggested that I simply create a new account. When that didn't fix the issue she disconnected the remote connection.

A:Sleep Mode and Shut Down not working properly after Windows 10 upgrade.

I had the exact same issue I know how frustrating it can be. Initially I removed my video/graphics driver and installed the driver compatible for Windows 8.1- 64 bit (from dell driver download page). It resolved the issue. Few days ago I installed the updated driver for windows 10 64bit, posted in the dell driver page. Still it is okay and sleep/hibernation is working properly, I think it should also work for you. Please let me know if it works and if you need further assistance.

I have a laptop that is running Windows XP and have confirmed with the laptop manufacturer that I can upgrade it to Windows 7 Home Premium. I searched online for purchasing Windows 7 Home Premium and found some sites that offer a Product Key, Download Link,

Hi all,

Hope someone can help me! As a UK student I can from today purchase a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium [Upgrade] or Windows 7 Professional [Upgrade] 32/64-bit for ?30. This is a fantastic offer and one which I am hoping to take advantage of.

I have a laptop that came pre installed with Vista Business (there is a legitimate serial stuck to the base of the machine) but after months of frustration with the OS I wiped it and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit RC1, which I am delighted with.

The problem I now have is, if I purchase Windows 7 Pro Upgrade will I be able to install it? The website gives the option of a direct download for ?30 or a direct download plus something called a "Disk Kit" for ?39. If I have to do a clean install anyway, will it matter that I'm not running Vista or XP? Do I need the disk kit or does the download come in the form of an ISO which burns to DVD like the RC1?

All help gratefully received, thank you!

A:Can I purchase Windows 7 Upgrade?

I think one way or another, you would ultimately be able to install 7 using the upgrade version so I would go ahead and get that.

Yes, the download should be an ISO so once you download 7, just burn it to a DVD using a free app such as imgburn. No need to get the "disk kit."

The computer is a Dell inspiron 1150 OS windows xp professional. When it boots I get a message svchost.exe Application Error... The instruction at "0x10002007" referenced memory at "0x000a0000" The memory could not be read. I close that out and enter my PW, it goes to the blue windows screen with my icons then immediately to a black backround but the icons are still there. On the bottom of the screen there is a message that reads: Your computer is in danger! Windows security center has detected spyware/adware infection! It is strongly recommended to use antispyware tools to prevent data loss. It then shuts down. I can boot in safe mode. I have used the norton and they find nothing but I doubt it has been updated. It is my son's computer he uses at college. I tried getting on the internet so I could update his programs and scan again but we recently changed from a dial up connection to cable. The comcast tech said I cannot install the needed software in safe mode. I have access to the internet through my desktop so he suggested going to download.com and downloading the AD-Aware program and installiing on the notebook. I did that and ran the scan which found 210 critical issues. I went through the process and deleted them but nothing has changed. Also, I don't know if it makes a difference but he never updated to service pack 2. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a few questions, first some background information. I'm building a new computer and I currently have a valid copy of XP. I'm wanting to put Windows 7 on my new PC though and I'm trying to buy Windows 7 Pro x64 (an upgrade, not OEM or full copy) online (I'm a student so I get a discount). I'm hoping to be able to just purchase the upgraded version and then do a "clean install" with the upgrade since I dont have Vista.

1. When I purchase the upgrade downloadable online (from the Microsoft Store), will it give me an ISO that I can burn?

2. If it is an ISO that I can burn, after I get it installed and go to put the license key in, do I put in my XP key or do I need a Win 7 key?

3. If the answer to the question above is Windows 7, does it give you a license key when you purchase the upgrade online?

4. If that answer is no, then how do I obtain my license key if I'm buying the downloadable version online and trying to do a "clean" install with the upgrade?

A:Question about Windows 7 Upgrade Purchase / Install

1. Yes, you should be given an .iso file or a link to a tool to create the .iso file.

2. No, typically the upgrades now require the previous OS to be installed. However, in our tutorials section, you'll find instructions on doing a clean install with the upgrade version.

3. You will be given a key, probably through e-mail after your purchase.

A:Windows 7 x64 upgrade - Online purchase recommendations please

The best value for Upgrade is Win7 Home Premium Upgrade Family 3-Pack which regularly goes down to $99-$120 on Amazon, buy.com and newegg.com, making 3 licenses cheaper than a single normally-priced Upgrade license.

Hopefully it's available if you're in another country by googling the name and searching around a bit for online or big box retailers.

I have somebody who was asking me for help upgrading their Vista system to Windows 7. They bought the OEM copy of Windows 7 and instead need a copy of Windows 7 64-bit home premium upgrade. They intend to return it as luckily the packaging hadn't been opened.

The question is, where can I purchase a legitimate copy of Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium, either Upgrade or Retail, whatever will allow the easy upgrade option instead of overwriting everything?

A link to a reputable site or mail-order business that ships to the Chicago Suburbs would be appreciated.

Oh, the computer in question does NOT have a touch screen, and Windows 8 is probably unsuitable for that system. It might work OK if she bought a touch screen, but does not want one. She's just interested in Windows 7 Home Premium.

All I can find on Amazon and Tiger Direct are OEM copies.

A:upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to windows 7 professional

The Microsoft "anytime upgrade" for Windows 7 has been discontinued. You will, apparently, have to buy a new version. However, there may still be "OEM" versions available and they are less than the full versions. The only difference is the OEM can only be used on the PC it is first installed, just like the original "OEM" version that came with your Dell.

What are doing or going to do that will require that much memory? I have 16GB installed on my recording studio PC and have never used over 7GB of RAM.

A:Upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium with Windows 7 Professional from OLD PC

Hi netbox,

The answer to your question is "it depends" (helpful I know)

Basically, if your old machine came with Windows 7 Professional pre-installed then it is probably an OEM copy. This means that the license is locked to that machine and that machine only and can't be transferred.

However, if it is a retail copy. That is, you went out and bought the disk, and it didn't come pre-installed then it should be fine. Although Windows may ask you to call Microsoft for activation, just so you can tell them that it isn't in use any more. Here's a tutorial: Upgrade Install with Windows 7

Fellow Humans,
recently I upgraded My new Compaq Presario, which is running at 1.6 Ghz, and have 512MB of Ram, from Win XP Home to Win XP Professional. Now I keep getting messages telling me that my System Save Drive (D), is very low on Disk space and that I need to clear programs. This drive has a capacity of 3.89 Gigs and 3.85 Gigs are being used. It seems that each time I start the computer I am losing more and more of the free space on this disk.

My C drive has 47.4 Gigs of free space, but I can't seem to transfer any of the files from D to
C, and make them stay - or reduce the amount of used space on drive D.

The folders on System Save D are:

CPQDRV, CPQS, DATA, Documents and Settings,
Cookies, Desktop, Favorites, My Documents, Start
Menu, Programs, UserData, My Music, Program Files, and Windows. I do not think that all od these should be on the D drive, while only 4.5 Gigs of
the C drive is being used.

HELP! HELP! HELP! I would greatly appreciate any and all help I can get toward solving this problem

I would like to upgrade one of our computer in the office which come with windows 7 home BASIC (not PREMIUM) to windows 7 professional.

but i can't find the upgrade purchase option of this. I am finding the upgrade of home premium to professional but not of home Basic to professional

can anyone here guide me to the right direction.

we are looking for upgrade version instead of full version to save the cost.

A:windows 7 home BASIC to windows 7 professional upgrade

You may need to be using the Windows Anytime Upgrade option, although I'm not absolutely certain whether you can upgrade from Basic to Professional.

Also, you can only use it in certain parts of the world.

Windows 7 Upgrade Paths

All you do is buy a new product key for Windows 7 Professional, click Windows Anytime Upgrade, and then insert the product key that will have been emailed to you.

Windows then downloads the files needed for the upgrade and you will be required to activate the system on completion of the upgrade. Depending on how many files need to be downloaded, the upgrade shouldn't take any longer than half-an-hour.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that you can use the option with the Basic edition of Windows 7.


It would appear you are faced with buying Windows 7 Professional.

Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. Windows 7 Starter is only available in a 32-bit version. The Windows Aero theme is not included in this version. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict the edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[6]This edition is available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.

I recently bought two 8GB RAM sticks to add to the 8 GB of RAM I already had. But when I installed them, I found that Windows 7 Home Premium was loading past the 16 GB mark and I needed Windows 7 Professional. I had recently set up a computer at my workplace,
so I had a copy of Windows 7 Professional lying around, so I decided to use that. Except when I went to install it, it told me to use Windows Anytime Upgrade. But there, it went and said that Windows Home Premium cannot be upgraded. I went back to the standard
installation, and was told that Windows 7 Professional can only be installed with a clean install, and I'd have to format my drive, which I can't afford to do.
Is there a way to upgrade my PC to Windows 7 Professional WITHOUT losing all my data, or should I return one of my RAM sticks and get some of my money back?

The first two times it happened I was copying files from another computer on my network to a shared folder on the computer that is crashing. The third time was very early this morning while I was not using the computer, though I had kicked off a format of an external USB hard drive the night before that did not complete successfully.

Note that you will see some minidump files from 2/6/14 - 3/12/14 -- I was getting BSOD crashes last year after I first built the system that were resolved by replacing the memory. Then I had one random crash on 4/11/14 and another random one on 4/18/15. The last three (6/24/15 and 6/25/15) started after the Windows 7 Professional upgrade.

Thanks very much for your assistance.

We have a Satellite Pro A300-2C4 (purchased 23/11/09) which came with Vista Business 32Bit installed but was downgraded (using disk provided) to Windows XP because of business network requirements.

When Windows 7 became available I purchased the Windows 7 upgrade DVD that Toshiba were offering so that if the Business decided to upgrade to the new operating system we could do so on this laptop.

This is what I have recently tried to do to discover it cannot be done as the DVD is for Win Vista Bus to Win 7 Pro upgrade.What is the best way to do the upgrade without having to purchase another upgrade disk. I do have a set of Recovery Discs for another Toshiba SatellitePro A300-2C4 which was purchased about 2 months before this one; these were created using the Toshiba Recovery software before any changes were made on the laprop. Would I be able to recover the system to its Windows Vista state using these discs and then use the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade DVD to do the upgarde?

Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly received.

A:Re: Satellite Pro A300-2C4 'Windows 7 Professional Upgrade DVD' to upgrade


Upgrading from WinXP to Win7 is not supported by Toshiba nor by Microsoft.
The only possible way to upgrade (go from 1 installation with some data to Win7 and keeping your settings and data) is from WinVista SP1 or later.

So regardless of how You look at it, You need to get XP out and either begin with WinVista factory installation + any 1 million updates that were released after this, OR
you can boot up from the Win7 media directly and install clean.
The second method saves a lot of time BUT have some negative side effects - namely not all drivers and utilities will be available in the final system if installed clean.
Some packages from WinVista works well in Win7 and are for that reason expected to be in the system during the update.
Hence, if You do a clean install, they will be missing.

However, they might not cause any trouble for You if they are not there, but that is not known until You're there and can see what You are missing.
Basic functionality should be expected though (WLAN, LAN, Sound, video....so on)

So, think about what You want to do and get busy with either recovering your unit with the WinVista set, updating, and then running the Toshiba Upgrade DVD, Win 7 upgrade and finally the Toshiba upgrade DVD again, OR just install Win7 clean + adding as much as possible / needed from the Toshiba Upgrade DVD.

Good luck!

I had installed windows 7 professional a year back. I have been observing from the past few months that the system frequently crashes and i get BSOD's. I have been thinking of upgrading from professional to ultimate. However i dont want to clean instal. I was thinking of doing a inplace ugradation. What i want to know is whether doing so will erase all my user accounts,installed software, movies, games etc?? Another point is that i also have Windows XP installed i.e i have a dual boot. Any help will be really appreciated.
Thank You.

I believe upgrading will retain your data, but it will also retain the problems you are upgrading to eliminate. Going from pro to ultimate wont give you relief.

We just purchased this laptop, it came with Windows 7 Pro, with a free upgrade disk to Windows 10 Pro. However, there is no dvd drive, and we don't have an external dvd drive. Is there someway to do the update without using the dvd? It's aggravating to have to go out and buy an external dvd drive just to update one laptop.

I currently have XP Home Edition. If I upgrade to Professional, will it just install the extra features, or will it cause problems with any of the files and programs I already have?

A:Windows XP Professional upgrade

This upgrade, unlike one from the 9x family, should be relativeley easy. And all your files and programs should be saved. There are never guarantees, so save what you can. But upgrades try to save everything.

I have Windows 7 Professional (64Bit) installed and attempted to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (64Bit). My DVD has 32Bit and 64Bit. Clicking on 64Bit and going forward, I receivee a message saying that I can't upgrade to 32Bit from 64Bit and the installation (upgrade) stops. As stated, I clicked on 64Bit as previous edition.

What could be the issue?

Many thanks in advance.

I saw a tutorial on upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 Professional, and it was on this site, but I can't find it. Several years ago, I bought two keys for 7 professional, and I did upgrade from Vista to 7 professional on a toshiba laptop, but when I tried to upgrade my HP compaq, I couldn't... and I learned that it was because it was xp. I was told that I could upgrade from vista but not xp. Since that time, the OS on my compaq has been changed from xp to vista, and I still have one unused product key for 7 professional. Since I had done this back in 2009, I figured that now I could do it on my compaq. I had signed up for Staples' maintenance contract, and so I took it to them to upgrade it, and they said that it couldn't be done. They said I would have to buy a windows 7 and do that first, then upgrade to professional. Well, I know that I did not do that last time. So I'm trying to find out more from the person that wrote that tutorial on doing it... I had found it by googling it, and the tutorial was from this forum, but I'm not very familiar with finding my way around forums. If it is true that I cannot do a straight upgrade at all, then I'd like to know if anyone would be interested in buying a windows 7 professional key. I paid about $100 for it.

I have a licensed copy of Windows 7 Home Premium installed. I want to upgrade to Windows 7 professional now, because I want Remote desktop capabilities. I know you can purchase an easy upgrade from microsoft for 90 bucks and just enter the key they provide you.

Can I purchase upgrade media from say, ebay for cheaper and do the same thing with that code, rather than doing an entire install?

Thanks, any and all help appreciated.

You can perform an upgrade to professional without any reg tweak by doing a regular upgrade...

Someone can post to the contrary if not

I was verbaly assured by Microsoft people that the upgrade from the Professional to the Enterprise version of Windows 7 is only a matter of installing a new key, acquired through the Software Assurance Program. After buying this program and getting and installing
new Enterprise key, Windows has not been automatically converted to the Enterprise version.

I installed a new key using:
slmgr.vbs /ipk command, and actived this key with slmgr.vbs /ato command.
Is there any additional steps required to convert Professional to Enterprise?

A:Windows 7 Professional to Enterprise Upgrade

You must have a clean installation with Windows 7 Enterprise DVD and activate it.
Before you decide to erase the current Windows 7 Professional, you may have a system backup or migrate the data with Windows Easy Transfer tool.

I am having a problem with the XP Pro Upgrade from XP Home edition. The install appears to be hung up even though it indicates only 39 minutes left to complete installation. It has been running for over 6 hours now.

I have plenty of memory, hard disk space and all the other requirements. Any suggestions on what the problem can be? How do I proceed?

Am i able to upgrade my Windows XP Home OEM to a Professional (OEM & RETAIL)

I haven't got the actual XP Home CD because my pc is a store purchase where it comes with those 4 CD Recovery CD's which is a pain. I was wondering if i could purchase a XP Pro Upgrade pack as they are only $249. sometimes you get damaged files in windows and you can't insert the windows cd and repair windows. i don't think i can upgrade to another home.

Hey guys im having this annoying issue with upgrading Windows 7 Professional that has not been activated and has surpassed its trail period.
When entering the upgrade CD key it tells me i must activate windows first (Professional version).
Ive tried to rearm the trial version using cmd prompt which enables the Grace Period again but it still asks me to activate windows before i upgrade.
Ive even deleted the existing trial licence "slmrg -upk" restart and it gives me a new trial licence and i end up with the same issue..
Running the Setup CD and selecting upgrade tells me to reboot and choose Anytime upgrade which takes me back to my initial problem.

Whats the point of Trialling the software if you cant switch between versions without re-installing or Activating, i swear you where able to do this in the initial BETA versions.

I would really like to resolve this issue without the need of re-installing due to the fact my dads PC has 100-150GB of small personal data files/ programs which will take a few days to install again. Not to mention the business downtime it will cause.

A:Upgrade Windows 7 Professional to Ultimate

the point is - usually you use a trial on a non production machine or dual boot. since you do not have a legal activated full version copy of an os installed, you will not be able to use the upgrade key.

true in the past you could do it but I guess microsoft is trying to close another piracy path.

see the following for upgrade paths...

I've just bought a Samsung R580 and the built-in webcam is working fine on skype and everything else except for msn messenger. When I connect on video chat with someone, I can see myself but they can't see me and I can not see them, checked my firewall settings- using Mcafee and windows live messenger has full access. I also tried it with my Logitech Quickcam, downloaded softwares too... same thing, I can see myself - webcam is working but people can't see me and I can't see them. Funny thing is it worked once briefly.

And on another chat platform, video is connecting fine but unable to connect to server. It occasionally connects briefly then logs off in 2 minutes.
