vista install over itself and what will be need to do after? by DJW
If I use my restore discs I made to get vista back working better will I need to reinstall the drivers for the chipset and sound card and video? May I need to reinstall any applications I installed after I last made a restore disc? And will all my files be safe and there after I do the restore from the discs I made when I first got the computer?

Taskbar won't show more than two buttons by Rebel1
If I open two programs/windows, both buttons will appear in the taskbar. If I open more than that, only two will appear in the taskbar but a pair of scrolling arrows appear just to the left of the Notification Area (system tray). I can use either arrow to scroll a desired program onto the taskbar, then click the button to open its window. If I select the Show Windows Side by Side, Stacked or...

presentationfontcache.exe - why suddenly becomes a hog? by Orson Cart
This stupid service uses 99% of one CPU. Okay if you have 12-core Opteron, but **** if you only got a dual-core. I looked it up in a few forums, and found how to stop this. So some might be satisfied with that, but.... ... it also affects Win7, so seems like some sort of bug that Microsoft hasn't patched. Moreover, I did not install .NET 3. I have a pretty much barebones Vista install, and I...

Programs won't start by Groundhog Gus
Don't know how Dell works, but I have an HP with Vista Home Premium. Instead of a disc supplied by the manufacturer, your disk should be partitioned into a C: and a D:. The D: drive should also have system saved files on it. If you know the DATE that 'no .exe' happened, then it might be simple for you. If not, you'll either have to edit the the registery or completely rebuild the C:...

Desktop shortcuts opening in Word... by Mike[_36_]
Just recently, URL shortcuts on my desktop will open in Word, rather than opening the link in IE. I looked at default programs & .url is set to open with Internet Browser. I've also tried the KB article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950505, but no help. If I go to the shortcut through favorites, it opens ok & have deleted shortcuts & sent new ones to desktop, but they still behave the same...

Programs won't start by Percival P. Cassidy
I am trying to fix one of my wife's foreign students' laptops with Vista Home Premium. It boots to the desktop, but no programs will execute: whatever I try to start, I get the box asking me what program I want to use to open it, even though it's an .exe program that I'm trying to start. The student says he clicked on an email even though it looked suspicious because he assumed that his...

DVD Maker is garbage. What's a good alternative? by Hexter
Hi, I just wasted several DVD disks trying to make a DVD of a home movie. I keep getting a useless error message with no detail and end up with a bad disk. What is a good, preferably free, DVD making software that works well on Vista without making coasters? Thank you.

Need help diagnosing laptop hanging by Bob F[_3_]
I've been trying to figure our what is causing an HP Vista laptop (dual core AMD) to hang during operation. Sometimes it will work for hours, sometimes barely minutes. The hangs usually shows when you try to do something, and the cursor will show the "busy" rolling circle. It seems like the harddisc will initially be cycleing continuously (LED flashing) for a while, then finally it will just...
