You purchase it at the nearest computer shop but they don't sell them much because of windows 7.
How do you get photos off your digital camera I have new laptop windows vista hprem OS and no drivers for Kodak dc280 camera. any other options?
Answer . I'm not 100% familiar with Vista, but have you tried the camera wizard? Does Vista recognize your camera when it is attached? If so then all you need to do is open the folder that holds your photos and drag them where you wish to store them . Picasa Photo . I usually plug in the c…amera, go to my computer and the camera has it's own symbol. It would download into My Photos. If you want you can download, for free, Picasa photo. I love it. It will save and date all your photos. You can email from there, etc. (MORE)

hi , u can get the free vista Os by downloading the vista from the Microsoft websites...............but need pay atleast rs.20 for the DVD..
If vista doesn't allow you to delete corruptes files (folders), you have to boot your PC up in Safe Mode. In Safe Mode with administrative rights you can delete any file (directory/folder) which you like to. To boot your system up in Safe Mode if have to press F8 just right after BIOS finishes to …test the system. (MORE)
\nFor 99% of home users, "regular" Vista (32-bit) is what you should get.\n. \nVery few programs are written with 64-bit processing in mind, and you will likely experience more bugs when trying to get older programs to run in a 64-bit environment.\n. \nThe only reason (in my humble opinion) to get… the 64-bit version is if you are a specific type of computer or game programmer, or if you just enjoy fixing inevitable problems and incompatibilities that occur with any version of Windows. \n. \n3 to 5 years from now (2011+) we will probably start to see a lot more 64-bit applications, but for the home user or casual gamer, I would avoid 64-bit like the plague, as it is still not 100% "mature". Don't be an early adopter unless you have a specific reason. (MORE)
DishnetPC does indeed support Windows Vista. It also supportsApple's iOS, Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows 8.0 and 8.1.
Insert the DVD. If a menu pops up with options, you can use it to restart and install Vista. If not, restart your computer. It will need to check to boot from DVD before hard drive.
For the ability to play the latest games go with Windows, but Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Professional is better because Windows Vista is facing several problems, & it would be best to avoid any headaches, but if gaming is not your main thing of your enjoyment go with a Mac, due to their lon…g life, ease of use, less problems, & looks. Now with a Mac you have the ability to boot into Windows with Boot Camp, so you would have the use of Windows. (MORE)
You can, in fact, put an operating system on the PlayStation 3. However, XP and Vista are out of the question. You can install one of several Linux distros, such as Yellow Dog, Fedora, OpenSUSE, or Debian. Just download the PowerPC or PS3 CD from the distro's website, burn it, and choose the "Instal…l Other OS" option in the Settings menu. (MORE)
Yes, you will need to buy an upgrade copy of Ultimate Edition to do so, or use Windows Anytime Upgrade available from the Microsoft website. Contact Microsoft if you need to know whether you can use upgrade in-place as you will be able to keep all of your files and folders this way.
No, it's not. But Vista has similat to OS X interface, at this point it was derived from OS X.
If I recently upgraded my windows OS from xp to Vista will deleting the old xp OS files from the hard drive cause a problem with vista working properly?
No it will not, DO NOT DELETE unless you dont need the old files. You should check them over first, just to make sure there is nothing u need such as importent documents, or pictures or videos of your family.
Of course. Just Google Windows 7. It is expected to come out around 2010. Hopefully it will be more successful than Vista.. Of course. Just Google Windows 7. It is expected to come out around 2010. Hopefully it will be more successful than Vista.

If you look on the Internet, you will find strong opinions about this question! Vista has been criticised for requiring powerful hardware to run well, the first release has several "rough" edges - these have largely been smoothed out with SP1 release. However, the key thing is that the OS, by …itself, isn't why you use a computer - it is applications. So however good the operating system is, if it doesn't run the applications you need to use, it is of little use. So, in practise, the "best" operating system depends on what you want to use the computer for, what colleagues use and how much you want to spend. For example, if you are a graphic designer working with lots of people who use Macs, then it would obviously make sense for you to buy a Mac (and run Leopard). Similarly, if you're developing software for the X-Box, then you can only get the development software for Windows so you would buy a PC (and run Windows). If you want a Netbook, then you don't have the option of a Mac; Apple don't have a Netbook in their range of computers - however good Leopard is. (MORE)
Windows Vista (formerly codenamed Longhorn) is the next evolution of Windows. It offers an advancement in reliability, security, performance, and manageability over Windows XP. As of July 30, 2005, Windows Vista was in the beta 1 phase and was expected to be released in 2006. Windows Vista is a new …Operating system that was released in January of this year. I don't know what you want to know about it, so please tell me and I'll provide a better explanation of what you want to know. Some searching on Google (go to Wikipedia) will show you exactly what you need. That windows vista (MORE)
"Vista" is not only the Italian and Spanish word for "View" or "Sight", but is also the Portuguese word for it. "Vista" is also the feminine past participle of the verb "ver" (to see), in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. I will show examples in Portuguese: "Ela gosta de ser vista de vestido vermelho…" (She likes to be seen in a red dress). "Ele gosta de ser visto jogando futebol" (He likes to be seen playing soccer).

When I try to download openSUSE on my windows vista OS it says that the .ISO file is over 4GB large and that it will take two days to download. Is this possible?
If you are downloading the DVD image, yes. The DVD images for OpenSUSE are 4.2 GB for the x86 version, and 4.3 GB for the x86-64 version. If you have a slow internet connection, or if the download server is getting swamped, it could easily take that long to download the image.
All the platforms of Vista are on the DVD (or 5 CD's). You have to have the Home Premium serial to unlock the features. Why do that though when an Ultimate serial would do so much nicer. :)
In my opinion, no it is not, the Beta expires on August 2009, the RC expires on July, 2010, however, if you plan to purchase Windows 7, I highly recommend upgrade as Windows 7 has passed several benchmarks showing that it is faster and performs better than it's predecessors.
I would say Windows 7. Normally i would say it's what suits you but in this case, know for a fact that Windows 7 is much less frustrating than Vista. It doesn't crash (as much), its much faster, better UI, comes with more updated preloaded software. Its just better in total. Believe me. Google it … Most of the compatibility issues are easier to solve and believe me its more compatible than vista can ever be. And I think... it uses the less system resources when compare to the windows Vista by..Rags :) Ehem... NO it is windows vista. All the way, windows 7 is more complicated and windows vista has been my life. (MORE)
Windows explorer is the process which allows you to view your desktop, icons, browse folders. You can find it by opening task manager and locate explorer.exe
You can't delete it it is located under the start menu. The direct file is also located in C:\Windows\System32\control.exe
Yes! If you are referring to Windows Sidebar (The Clock, Calendar etc on the right side of the moniter) You can! Simply typin into the search box on the start menu 'Sidebar' and then select Windows Sidebar.
Operating systems do not "support" one another. i suggest you rephrase your question to make what you are trying to accomplish more clear.
If you select 'Upgrade', it only replaces system files, keeping your personal data/files/downloads. It is probably recommended to install a clean copy, though.
Well, it has worked for me, and i am running windows vista 7, so yes, it works. Lovely joystick :) missed using it!
\nIt sounds like you're asking how to boot a Vista PC into MS-DOS. You'll need to create a bootable MS-DOS CD. If you search on the Internet for "bootable MS-DOS CD", then you'll find instructions on how to do that.
what do you mean from windows vista x64 to windows vista? they are both the same thing. there is win32 and win64. so i don't know what you mean by that
\nIf you have a Windows XP operating system CD, you can go to START>RUN and type in sfc /scannow. SFC stands for System File Checker, and will scan your Windows XP installation for corrupt or damaged files. If it finds any file issues it uses the CD to fix them. It's best to have all other applicati…ons closed when scanning. (MORE)
All of the windows xp require a DOS boot during the installation process the Windows Vista installation process replaces this DOS boot with what?
...with Windows XP Professional already installed on your computer. Windows Vista cannot be installed without Windows XP Professional installed first on your computer, it's the same with Windows 7; Windows' latest operating system (OS).
Windows Vista Ready means that the PC does not have Windows Vistaon it, but it can be easily upgraded for an additional price. Ifyou buy a PC with Vista, you will get Vista already installed forno extra money.
what in gods name would posses you to commit such an act of stupidity!?! If you must you will need to boot the PC with a Vista install disk in the DVD drive, make sure CD/DVD drive is listed above HDD in BIOS and boot from CD. When the setup runs you will be able to format the HDD and install Vista …fresh - caution formating the HDD will erase ALL data inc. programs, files etc. (MORE)
There are many new additions to Windows 7, including: -Jumplists -Built-in ISO burner -Customization of Notification Area -XP Mode (Not just compatibility view) -Improved touch/touchscreen capability -Record steps of your problem to send to someone with the "Problem Steps Recorder" -Magnifier -Bet…ter MP3 Previewing -Action Center -Abillity to pin whatever you want to the taskbar -Improved Taskbar Previews (Better previews of your open windows in your taskbar) -Snapping windows into place -"Homegroup" (Makes it much easier to network things over multiple PCs, it is now simple for someone to pick their files to share over their Windows network) (MORE)
your computer might not be powerful enough to run vista. but to be honest i hate vista, get windows 7. Are there any applications running?
Both Windows and the iPhone OS are operating systems in which they provide an interface between software and hardware, but that's where the similarities end. The iPhone OS is designed specifically for Apple's iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad mobile devices, and runs a modified Darwin Linux kernel. Th…e same base operating system (Darwin) is also found on the Mac OS X operating system, albiet modified for use on a personal computer. The iPhone OS is also designed to be run on a system that contains an ARM processor. It currently cannot be run on any other system, except the iPhone Simulator contained within the iPhone SDK. The Windows family of operating systems is a more generalized operating system designed primarily for consumer desktop and laptop computers, although specialized versions for mobile phones and other embedded devices exist. Unlike the iPhone OS, Windows is able to be run on a wider variety of processors including Intel, AMD, and in the case of older Windows operating systems; PowerPC, Alpha, and MIPS processors. (MORE)
The answer to this is one that only you can answer, you really need to evaluate your options and needs before you can say yes or no. Ubuntu is a fairly modern distribution with a large install base with good hardware support for most configurations. The best way to ensure that your machine is ful…ly compatible with it would be to run the live CD option for a day and if you wish install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package from the repository. Try both ubuntu and kubuntu as you may find your needs better met by one than the other. so I guess I am telling you to try before you install shop around for what is right for you and don't sell yourself short. Do your research and never be scared to look for answers on their forums because there are a lot of knowledgable people who are very willing to help you. (MORE)
Nothing was techinically "replaced", but they booted in phases rather than specific files. This lead to adding bootmgr (Windows Boot Manager) which reads a registry type file that was not used in Windows XP.
After installing you need to delete vista os by deleting drivers and install xp ones again .
yes i have reinstalled al types of windows on my PC although i would stay with indows 7 it's way better!

Mac OS X is an excellent replacement for Windows 7. You can use Apple's Mac OS X on computers made by Apple. The legal terms you agree to when installing Mac OS X prevent it being installed on non-Apple computers.
Yes, you can. Backup your data. Insert the disk with windows 7 and follow instructions.
android os is best for games and apps offering up to 20,000 aps (roughly), where as windows offers only 1,000 apps. But dont let that put you off though, windows is simple, effective at tasks and sutible for facebook users also, windows os phones have most of the time faster processers than android …phones with up to 1ghz or more. Android hands down wins with games depending on what phone you own. But this is a matter of opinion and is difficult to say which is better as i have had an android phone (Galaxy ace) and a windows phone, (nokia lumia 710). Hope this helps :) (MORE)
You would have to download the vista os and install it from a USB storage device, FireWire from another computer or you could use a virtual drive From the computer you want vista on if you partition the hard drive. I'm assuming you want to replace the current os on a computer or fix a broken version… do I would say the easiest way is to torrent vista and put it on a portable drive or a disk (MORE)
You shouldn't need a 'patch' - Most Windows operating systems 'auto-detect' hardware such as cameras etc, and install the relevant frivers either from disk or the internet. Even if your camera is Windows 7 ready - it should be backwards compatible with Vista.
It is possible. However, if you do this you should save anyimportant files before proceeding, as you could run the risk ofbricking the phone if not installed properly. See the related linkfor a how-to on installing Android OS (through an SD card) to aBada OS-powered phone.
Windows Vista was technically the replacement for Windows Xp. However, it was so unpopular that many users simply waited for the release of Windows 7 to upgrade.
Simply replacing Bada OS to Android OS isn't that simple. Thedevice has to be able to handle porting in a totally different OSfrom its native Bada. Also, it depends on if the developercommunity has made a version of Android OS (via a customized ROM)for that device.
