Viber Software for Windows 7 Starter

Q: Viber Software for Windows 7 Starter

My Laptop OS is Windows 7 Starter. I can't install Viber software. Can you guide which viber software is suitable for windows 7 Starter?
Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Viber Software for Windows 7 Starter

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.)

A: Viber Software for Windows 7 Starter

Doesn't seem to be computer software, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viber .

Win 7 Starter is for netbooks.

My parents don't have smartphones and from the "new technology" they're just using a laptop(Win 10). Viber will be very handy, considering that we live in a different countries. Is it possible to install it on a laptop without a smartphone? Bluestacks use to do the trick, but not any more. Any ideas?

I have an intermittent problem printing with my HP AIO 6250 printer but don't know if it is the printer or Microsoft Office Starter software. Every so often when I try to print a document created with Microsoft Office Starter it will not print and does not show up in to the print queue. However, sometimes I can go to print properties and do a test print but still can not print my document. Or, I can cut and paste in to "notebook " and/or "word pad" and print from that software without a problem. Has anyone experienced this problem with the Windows Office Starter Version and is there a remedy to this frustrating problem? Thanks for any help. Chuck

A:HP Printer or Windows Office Starter Software Problem

Actually, IMO, you should just stick with Wordpad....It gives you all you need....

I bought a netbook a while back with Windows 7 Starter.

I had an extra upgrade key of 7 Home Premium from one of those 3 pack family upgrades so I upgraded the netbook and put the key in.

I want to reformat the netbook back to Windows 7 Starter and just use it's original Starter key it came with. Home Premium bogged it down too much.

My question is...

Is there a way I can reuse the upgrade key of 7 Home Premium on another computer or did I waste the license by putting it on the netbook?

Thank you in advance for your help,

Recently released Viber desktop for PC is rather disappointing with their support info. The system requirements page has no info on the required hard drive space needed. I am currently installing this app on a lenovo G560 running windows 8 pro x86 and so far over 0.5GB has been downloaded and the installation has not even started.

So i got this netbook fixed was a HDD problem, i never had windows 7 but this has windows 7 starter, cant even change the background... dumb but ok. I got this program called Oceanis change desktop background. is this a safe program? i scanned it with antivirus

A:Windows 7 starter

That's normal for Win 7 Starter.

I have never heard of Oceanis before, but the reviews I saw look decent and none of my protection alerted me on it's site. I won't guarantee it's safe, but it looks OK.

You can upgrade the netbook to Home Basic or Home Premium if you want to pay for it. I installed Pro on my tablet/netbook. Starter was very silly for it since Starter doesn't support the touch screen features.

Can I remote desktop from windows 7 starter to any computer with XP or 7, without upgrading to 7 Premium? I am looking to buy a net book that has 7 starter loaded on it, but if it can't remote connect then I need to rethink it. I know most net book's do not have enough RAM to run 7.

A:Windows 7 starter RDT

Starter has remote desktop, but you can only connect from that computer and not to it. So, you can remote from your netbook running starter to another computer running 7 Pro, Ultimate, or Enterprise (or XP Pro), but you can't connect from 7 Pro, Ultimate, or Enterprise (or XP Pro) to your netbook running starter.

It's all covered on the Microsoft website.

A:windows 7 starter

You should be able to restore the default OS that shipped with the netbook using the recovery partition. Try tapping F4 repeatedly at boot, it should launch recovery. Check first under Start menu- All programs for something called Samsung Recovery Solution (or something similar) and try to launch recovery from there. See this page for a guide.

How To Use Samsung Recovery Solution 4 my samsung

Factory restores are usually destructive, so back up critical data before attempting this. This process will recover your computer to the condition it was in when you unboxed it, including all Samsung bloatware. If you want just the OS, you'll need a disk, google for a clean iso.

I have a Samsung notebook with Windows 7 Starter edition. I put a password on my windows startup not long before I went on holiday but when I came back I forgot it.

I have searched Internet for help and so far this is what I've done -

Says I should put reboot disc in but doesn't have disc drive.
Says I should try bootable flash drive, changed Bios startup but won't boot from it.
Tried complete restore, still boots up with my user
Tried booting in safe mode, just boots as normal

Can anyone help?

A:Windows 7 Starter Help

We can't really help bypass a password since we have no way to know this is your computer.

I'd consider Reinstalling Windows 7 from booted DVD
or running full Factory Recovery from its partition at boot(which may also require a password) or from Recovery Disks you already made or order from Samsung.

Basically a friend of mine has a system ( XP ) where the whole thing starts up ok , you log on etc etc but the minute it logs on the screensaver comes on then the whole system reverts to the log on screen again!!. The system will not clear itself despite numerous " restores ". The system can be started in safe mode but any clues would be most helpful.
I thank you in advance

A:Windows non starter

Did you try disabling the screensaver while in safe mode? Make sure it is not on at all and is not loading at startup either in the startup folder under Program Files or, though not likely, in the registry.

So my fiancee's laptop was getting blue screens and huge problems. It wasn't even booting up fully without restarting.

We supposed it was the hard drive.

We replaced the hard drive. The only thing is that we needed from the hard drive was:

Windows 7 Starter.

It was a dell inspiron mini 1018 so it doesn't have a cd drive, so the only solution is installing it through the usb drive.

I want to re-install windows 7 starter (with the key we have), use the windows dvd tool and get Windows 7 Starter installed fresh onto the laptop.

Now from what I understand, Windows 7 Starter is included in some of the other iso's. You just have to find a way to allow windows to let you choose which windows to install.

I downloaded the .eicfg removal utility. I removed it from the iso and then used windows dvd tool to move it to the usb drive.

But when I booted from windows and started the install it never gave any option of which windows to install.

(I downloaded the Windows 7 Ultimate Premium x86).

So. What did I do wrong? What should I change to get this laptop up and running with the new hard drive???

I would appreciate any steps and help you could give me!

I'm not sure why that didn't work for you.

I just tried it with the home premium ISO X17-58996 towards the bottom here,

After doing the above I was given the option of Starter through Ultimate.

If you right click on the desktop you'll pop up a menu, click the personalize tab.

A box should pop up, on the left of the box there is a option, change desktop icons. Click that and you can change the icons on the desktop.

My desktop PC has W98SE, but I am "test-driving" a Samsung laptop that has Windows 7 Starter on it. And I am having a lot of trouble with it. What in blazes is W7 "Starter"? Is it a pared-down version?

The trouble is aside from the fact that W7 is in Spanish, and I have to use a loco touchpad instead of a mouse, most problems have a lot to do with the fact that W7 doesn't have any DOS!!

This is supposedly to make the OS idiot proof, but I've found that leaving all the fixing of stuff up to Windows is often a big mistake.

Apparently, the owner hadn't made any backups to fall back on. And I've already acquired some stuff I don't want. With no CD ROM, there's no way to reinstall the OS. And I wasn't given any CD with the operating system on it, anyway.

I can't go into DOS and extract a file, either. I've had to do such things often. Windows Scandisk is often not good enough, and I need to do a customized version in DOS, which sometimes finds more errors. How can I change a file's attributes? Or delete a file that is in use by Windows? And I find no equivalent of System File Checker. How can I get by with no DOS or Safe Mode?

I wanted to see how certain games and utilities I have had a long time would work on this new system, so I e-mailed a bunch to the laptop. I'd sent zip files, and the laptop only seemed able to unzip one or two. But the worst part was trying to install anything. I obviously don'... Read more

A:Windows 7 Starter

When it was done I closed the program because I not going to be using it at that time.What exactly is meant by, "closed the program"?Usually, the safest method to installing external hardware is to run the setup media first and connect the device when prompted. If you would like to try this method, uninstall the driver(s)/software for the device from Add/Remove Programs (if it is listed). If there is nothing in the Add/Remove Programs; uninstall the device from within Device Manager. Reboot the machine after removal of driver(s) and try to install the device by first running setup media. If still no joy, we can try something else.

Hello All,

I'm am undecided as to whether install this or Linux Mint on my fathers PC. Are the requirement lower (and performance better), than Pro?

Pro was terrible, very, very, slow.

Hey,can you give me a bit more detailed information about your computer?
I have Celeron processor too(2.8Ghz) and 2GB RAM and I've installed windows 7 ULTIMATE and it runs pretty fast.

I'm sure your computer can run more than windows 7 starter.So,if you install windows starter ,than you're gonna have no problems with performance!

But ,before you start installation, you should consider that Windows 7 starter is VERY limited! You won't be able to:
1.Use aero theme(just windows basic)
2.Change windows background,sound scheme,glass colors...

Hello 55joe4, welcome to Seven Forums!

You can use the information in this tutorial at the link below to put the Windows 7 installer on a USB stick to do the install from.

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Though since you've had Linux on the PC it would be best to do a complete wipe of the Hard Disk Drive using the Windows installer first using the information below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media, use Step One of this tutorial at the link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive. Then if you do not want to create the new Windows 7 "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #2 to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to do the installation to.
If you do want to create the "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #3 to create, format and mark Active the System Reserved partition and then create and format the 100GB partition to do the installation to.
Either way, running the "clean all" then creating and formatting the partition(s) using diskpart will get you the best possible space to do a clean install of Windows 7 to; you can always extend the Windows partition to include the remaining unallocated space on the HDD / SSD or create additional partitions after the installation completes if ...

Is this netbook capable of running any of the higher spec W7 Os's without to much of a problem? Without getting back to him I don't know what the ram situation is.
Any hints or advice on that?

As long as he has at least 1GB it should be able to run 32-bit Windows 7. All he should need is Home Premium. If he can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, that would be better, but it can run on 1GB fine. If it's less than 1GB, I would definitely upgrade straight to 2GB.

my girlfriend just bought the new mini 10 v from dell with what we thought was windows 7 home edition but ended up being starter. It seems stupid. it cant do shake or the windows pop up windows for viewing your open programs. I only received it a couple hours ago but we are really upset with it. She is the most bummed about not even being able to change the background image at all. Should we send it back and just go for a full upgrade or is there something that is worth the 300$ we paid for the mini.

A:windows 7 starter

Don't take this wrong, no offence intended.

You get what you pay for. You could return it and buy a different computer, or you could upgrade it yourself. If you're a student, you can pick up a copy of Home Premium or Professional for $30.

My point is, you are asking a question that nobody but yourself can answer. Personally, I could not survive with the Starter, but each user has different needs.

i have an asus eeepc 1005hab with 1gb ram that i recently installed windows 7 starter on and i noticed that it is having some problems with streaming video. the video and audio stutters horribly until the load bar gets all the way across then it plays just fine. never had these problems when it had xp on it. just wondering if this is a driver problem or not enough ram, or just an issue with the os and if there is anything i do to fix it...

many thanks.

A:Windows 7 Starter

Well, after a look at Asus's website, it appears that they don't have Windows 7 drivers for that particular model, unfortunately. Only XP drivers.

Windows 7 does the best it can to provide basic functionality with the generic drivers it installs, but you really need the proper ones (chipset, audio, graphics, touchpad, etc...) to get full functionality.

Yes, it would possibly run better with 2GB of RAM (I upgraded mine), but without proper drivers, you aren't going to see much of an improvement.

Windows 7 is a great operating system, but it can't be enjoyed to the full extent if you don't have the proper drivers. It's just going to stutter and choke, especially on a netbook.

I would recommend you go back to XP as Asus does not provide Windows 7 support (i.e. drivers) for their older netbooks (as opposed to the new ones coming out with Win7 Starter preinstalled).

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Hi guys, I can't seem to find an answer for this anywhere...

Am I able to use the windows 7 family upgrade pack to upgrade Windows 7 starter on my netbook?

I know it will work for my XP desktop and Vista laptop, just unsure about my Windows 7 Netbook.

Any help appreciated

The family pack allows for three installations, so if this Netbook meets the system requirements, and you have only installed it on two other machines, then you should be fine.

Since my son no longer uses his Asus PEM 1015 I was going to start using it myself. This laptop has always been kept up to date with MS updates, the Browser, AV & Flash. About a week ago I noticed Windows Updates would no longer work. It just keeps checking for updates for hours with no results & no error codes. I tried fixing it using suggestions I've read on line & using tools from MS. However the problem was never resolved.

About 3 days ago I decided to start fresh since my son was not going to use this laptop again & I did a System Recovery to bring back the laptop to it's original start day. When I do a System Recovery everything works well again until MS Updates updates my Windows Agent automatically to Windows Agent to 7.6.7600.320. At this point everything breaks down & Windows Updates runs constantly without ever finding any results or giving me any error codes. I've also tried suggestions online at this point & have used MS tools & the only thing that works temporarily is doing another System Recovery. This works temporarily until MS Updates updates my WU Agent again automatically to 7.6.7600.320 & the issue starts again. I've already done a System Recovery 4x already & everything works well again until MS updates automatically the Windows Agent to 7.6.7600.320.

Can anyone here please help me.

I bought Home Premium 32 bit update (at Office Max) to install on my ASUS 1015 PEM Notebook (upgrading Windows Starter). I'm not having much luck. The program loads, but then stalls at a screen that says something like "Windows compatibility file (on desktop)". It goes no further. Any help?

I have just purchased a new pc that came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, which wont run my company software, which was made in 1995, 16 bit.

This 16bit software ran fine on my previous pc, which had Windows 7 Starter 32-bit. But the 64 bit Windows 7 version wont run it, I cant use Windows XP Mode on my version of Windows 7, need Pro - Ultimate Version.

I want to install and run the Windows 7 32-bit I have, on my new pc (I still have the installation disk) on a seperate partition and keep the 64 bit version to.

Is this possible to install both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows 7 and then select which to run when the pc boots?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, James

Hi, Everyone this is my 1st post, I had been reading Sevenforums before i actually join it. Eversince then i got most of my doubt solve.

I just bought a Sony Vaio Y series come with Windows 7 Starter.

I got a bad deal form Malaysia giving windows 7 stater and 320gb hd, whereas S'pore giving Windows 7 home premiun and 500hd. Anyway i like the design and portability of this model.

I got a Year Warranty, But i'm wanted to upgrade it to Win7 Ent. and also wanted to upgrade my ram to 4GB max. my existing one is 2GB. but i afraid this would void the warranty.

Let get my question i wanted to update to Win7 Ent with out and not keeping my starter. but i afraid of driver issue, i plan to boot by USB setup.

Any advice?

Yeah -- warranty advice can only properly come from the warranty holder (despite what others here may tell you). So, you need to check with Sony support to see if performing such a Win7 upgrade will compromise your warranty in any way. My guess would be that it would not -- but (like everyone else posting here) -- that is only a guess.

Hello all,

I have a new sony vaio with windows 7 starter. i do have a folder that contains a movie that when i try to share i am able to see it from my other windows xp machine but when i play the movie it doesnt start.

appears for some reason that my windows 7 machine is not allowing other machines to stream anything of it. please help.

A:windows 7 starter not allowing other windows machine to stream video

It could be that your Windows XP machines do not have the correct codec to play the movie. is the movie trying to play in Windows media player? If so you may want to use VLC media player. It will play anything.

Also, you may want to check the permissions on the shared folder. users will need the read and execute permission.

My son received as a gift a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 laptop, with pre-inatalled Windows 7 Starter Edition (according the My Computer Properties).

I think he answered a kind of No to a security question (maybe related to Windows Firewall), because now he has an annoyng problem.

He tries to make Windows Updates; number of important updates were already made, but the last 49 updates are in status of downloading; I'd say "perpetual downloading". For example now the system reports 49 important updates of 443 MB; from two days ago (more than 48 hours) were downloaded of this amount only 1%. So, I think the downloading is "working", but extremely slow.

Some notes: Windows Updates are enabled and set as automatic. All other kind of downloading are working very well; for example, I downloaded Avast Personal Edition (53 MB) at 1.2 MB/sec, Adobe Acrobat Reader (45 MB) at 976 KB/sec, so there are no problems with my connection or downloading - generally speaking.

My son tells me that at the beginning (6-7 days ago), when he received his gift, updates were downloading... reasonnably (as he can remember), he didn't notice anything strange.

Now, I am a specialist in informatics (programming, using, trainings), I work in this area from more than 35 years ago. But I'm not a specialist in configuring operating systems like Windows 7. I tried to see settings under Windowsd Firewall which can imply such a behaviour: all downloading work fine, excepting downloading in Window... Read more

Here's what you should try first. Set Windows Updates to ask before downloading and installing updates. Then do 2 or 3 at a time. It might take a little longer, but it usually solves problems like the one you are experiencing. If it doesn't work let me know. I have a couple other tricks up my sleeve.

Hi Chaps
I have a problem with Windows 7 Starter on a brand new ACER Netbook

I am using the netbook soley to run a powerpoint presentation in a care home,

The VGA output goes to a PC / TV convertor then the composite goes to an RF modulator then its distributed throughout the TV network

When the netbook is open and the screen shows the presentation then the TV pics are great...Yippee. However.

When I close the net book the remote pictures degrade to an unrecognisable mush.
Ive tried setting the power so that when the lid is closed "DO NOTHING" but for some reason the screen still goes blank and the remote screens again goes to mush.

I dont need to access the screen so burn is not a problem if I can get the "DO NOTHING" control to do what it should.
To test this I used my VAIO with the same settings and all was OK. The picture on the slave sets was good and stayed on (cloned) from the main net book screen.

Only other thing Ive tried is to look as the RES on the 2nd monitor but because its a PC/TV converter I get no options.

Any help would be appreciated.......Even if someone knows how to bypass the hard switch on the ACER NET BOOK

Thanks in advance

PowerPint is part of the Microsoft Office Suites.
Microsoft Office suites do not come in free. You have to purchase it.

Some computers will come pre-installed with a TRIAL version of Microsoft Office, good for 60 days, after which users will have to buy the full version.

Bear in mind that your Windows 7 Starter is the lowest end of Windows 7 versions. It may NOT have a Microsoft Office trial version included at all.
At best, it may include a Microsoft Office Starter version which does NOT include PowerPoint.

excerpt from ......
Microsoft Office Starter 2010

Microsoft Office Starter 2010, a new base productivity suite that replaces Microsoft Works, consists of limited-functionality versions of Word and Excel and includes advertising. It does not include PowerPoint or Outlook.
Office Starter 2010 is available only on new PCs in conjunction with preloaded Office 2010 suites and is designed for home users who are not ready to buy a full version of Office 2010. It allows users to upgrade easily to a complete Office 2010 suite whenever they are ready.
