Preferred Solution: windows 8.1 transferable?

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: windows 8.1 transferable?

If you purchased a copy of windows 8.x or upgraded to it from a retail version of Windows then you can transfer to any PC you own. If the OS came with a Dell, HP, Compaq, etc. then you cannot.


Quote:




Can I transfer the software to another computer or user? You may transfer the software to another computer that belongs to you. You may also transfer the software (together with the license) to a computer owned by someone else if a) you are the first licensed user of the software and b) the new user agrees to the terms of this agreement. To make that transfer, you must transfer the original media, the certificate of authenticity, the product key and the proof of purchase directly to that other person, without retaining any copies of the software.

Hi. I have a relatively small hdd with a genuine windows 7 op installed. Is it possibly to remove this licence and install on a larger hdd? If so how would I go about it?

Many thanks in advance. Danny

A:Windows 7 licence transferable?

On the same PC yes, reinstall using the key code on the sticker on the side, or image the old drive to the new.

What brand/model drives are involved?

i had an hp laptop for approximately 1 year and after the warrranty expired, the laptop motherboard failed and it was lost for good. i want to know if there is any way i can still use the OEM license for Windows 7 Home Premium??? this transfer would be made to a toshiba laptop. the OS came preinstalled when i purchased the laptop

and the thing is, the HP laptop was Windows 7 x64 but the toshiba laptop is x86 so there's another question, if a x64 license works whne installing an x86 version of Windows 7 HP.

edit: i figured out that you cant from a simple search, which is what i should've done before i posted this . . . that sucks that i cant transfer the OS AT ALL

Yes, I know they are, depending on the circumstance (like for identical Windows versions)... And this is a new one:

I gave an old ME machine to my church, and put Ubuntu 6.06 on it. I have the install disk for ME (useless - it was an OEM version), AND, I have the COA sticker (useFUL???).

So, with my generic XP install disk, can I install XP to a new build, and activate it with the ME COA?

i have a couple laptops that both came with windows 8.1 that im going to be selling. both were upgraded to win10 during the free upgrade period and both are currently on anniversary edition. when i look at the activation page, it says "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your microsoft account". naturally, i will reset windows before sale so does this mean the new owner will not be able to activate windows 10 since it wont be done with my acct? do i need to track down restore media for each and put win8 back on?

A:is the free win10 upgrade transferable to another owner?

That's actually very interesting because historically and even when I had my stint on Windows 10, the license is tied to the machine, not the user. What I would do is reset those laptops and set them up with a local account and see if the activation status is an issue.

Hey all,

Firstly I hope i have posted this in the right forum.

As the name states I can not use any of my windows security I know this is because of a fake anti virus i had at one point, I also can't install any other virus protection or firewalls onto my computer.

I'm assuming this has to do with what the virus has done with my computers registry, correct me if I'm wrong.

I want to restore my registry back to its default I have tried the reg restore /? command in cmd but it comes up with (see attached picture) and am not sure what this means or for the next step for me to take to continue the command.

Is there any down side to restoring my registry to its default as well?

I cannot figure out how to get all of my email stores moved from my old PC (Windows Vista/Windows Mail) to my new PC (Windows 7/Outlook 2013). Is there a way to successfully do this or do I need to give up?? When trying to use the export function for messages in windows mail it comes up with an error message to say 'The export could not be performed. An error accured while initializing MAPI.' All my email accounts are POP3. I did find the email stores and transfered them manually to the new PC but I opened them on the new PC in outlook then only a small fraction of emails was there and they were all jumbled up and my folder structure did not transfer. Can this transfer be done or not? Hope to get some useful answer. Cheers, Torsten.

If the accounts are IMAP you can recreate them in the mail client and it will download all the mail afresh from the remote server. But if they are POP you have to work with the local database. Even if they are IMAP I would make a backup of the existing database.

Email is on my Vista PC, version 6 Windows Mail.

I have set up windows Mail on my new PC (Win 7) and version is Windows Mail 2012

I already have some email on my new Win 7 PC.

Can I export mAIL from my old PC to an external hard drive and use that as the tool to import Mail on new pc?

hello ohana
those are all part of the os. but if you go to control panel > programs and features > turn windows features on or off (left hand side) you can turn some of them off. i dont know about uninstalling them.
as for IE , that is the only browser microsoft will let do the updates. so if you plan on updating .dont uninstall it.

just curious on what the differences were between xp pro and xp media center edition and then what was better about vista...

A:windows xp vs windows xp media center edition vs windows vista

Vista isn't out yet and there are going to be many versions of it, more than XP. XP Pro is the professional version, it has more options open, security options and all that stuff, but these options aren't exactly built for people who don't know what they're doing. So yea... more "professional" options. Media center is like the OS for really dumb ppl who want just want to watch media. It's all basic-like (http://www.lighttek.com/images/mediacenter.jpg), but it has lots of apps for TV tuners and dvd players and all that so you can use your comp as a TV.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.

So after I have prepared the notebook for a user, I normally take a 'windows' image, (backup) before I SOPHOS encrypt. (as I have had this happen before). Since Windows did not load up on this notebook, I have applied the image twice after the notebook fails
to load windows, the third time,  I completely reformatted the drive (erased) and applied the image again. The notebook was working just fine before I applied SOPHOS and run fine before I apply SOPHOS.


Any ideas??

Hi,

I am using the SDLC Threat Modelling tool 2016 by Microsoft on a Windows 10 virtual Box 32-bit.

When I am trying to generate a final report, it discards all the different risk ratings for each threat, and instead of having the respective high, medium, low levels next to each threat, it produces a html report putting only high next to each
one of them.

Any help?

I had Windows Defender installed under Win-7.  I did the upgrade to Windows-10 (straightforward).
However, when booting from cold, and after logging in, a message box has always appeared saying:
"
Windows Defender
This app has been turned off and isn't monitoring your computer.
If you're using another app to check for malicious or unwanted software, use Security and Maintenance to check that app's status.
"
I'm not using any other antivirus - just whatever came with Windows-10.  I originally thought that this would be some wrinkle that would get fixed by an update, but it's still there.
I've looked for ways to uninstall Windows Defender, but can't find a way to do it.  Typing "Defender" into the Search bar brings up an option saying "Windows Defender Desktop App", which when clicked also brings up the message box
mentioned above.
Is there any way to get rid of this message box?
Thanks!

I am totally fed up with that handicapped deformity called "Windows Explorer" under Windows 7. Is there a way to start Windows Explorer from Win 2000 (both the panel and the file manager) under Win7?

I choose the Explorer from Win 2000 over that from Win XP because I like it more and also because the Explorer from Win XP calls some unimplemented function in ntdll on start (with an error) while the Explorer from Win 2000 in compatibilirty mode at least does not report any errors, just silently exits.

You can run Win2000 under VMware Player. But you need a key.

If you decide you don't want or don't like Windows 10 and you want to downgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you have 30 days from the upgrade date to do it, or else you'll need to do a clean reinstall.

Hi,
A quick query... I have a Windows 7 install to which I added a Windows 8.1 install on a separate partition. This updated the bootloader software to Windows 8.1.
Now when I boot, Windows 8.1 boots and presents a graphical menu to select 8.1 or 7.
If I select 8.1 it goes straight to the logon screen of 8.1 because it has already loaded. If I select Windows 7 however, the machine restarts, then goes into 7 (Obviously because it needs to "unload" the Windows 8.1 environment.
My question is, how (technically) is this trick achieved?
Because of the restart of the computer, I am assuming a "one time" flag is set somewhere in the bootloader environment telling it to load Windows 7?

I had a similar problem when Windows XP SP3 was released it was only designed for Intel processors, so if you have a AMD processor it will cause your system not to load, if you are running a AMD processor if i were you try and get back to the System Restore Point or if that fails reimage your pc and just before installing SP3 looks for the patch/fix for your processor model, then install SP3 and it should all be fine.

On the other hand if you have a Intel processor i woulldn't know what to advise.

Hi guys!
 
I'm having trouble installing windows 10. I have the product key, I have downloaded windows 10 but when I click on 'open' on the downloads page my screen flashes and wont do anything. I've tried disabling mcafee and restarted and the issue continues. Anyone have any idea what is causing this or how upgrade from vista to windows 8 or 10?
 
Thanks!!

A:How can I upgrade from windows vista to Windows 8 or Windows 10

...I have downloaded windows 10 but when I click on 'open' on the downloads page my screen flashes and wont do anything.
If you have already downloaded Windows 10 why should you click on "open" on the downloads page?  Could you post a link to this download page?

Hey all I'm rather new here and am semi-competent with computers but 7 problems. upgrade Windows XP to Windows Windows I have no idea what to do here One of my laptops Windows upgrade problems. Windows XP to Windows 7 is running Windows XP x and I actually DON'T have a copy of Windows After the laptop originally got a virus I downgraded from Windows Professional bit system But for some odd reason now that I downgraded it's not picking up wireless capabilities so I'm hoping to upgrade I downloaded an iso file simply because I used my friend's disc to upgrade my other laptop He lost the disc so I'm using an iso as I said above When I go to start the iso file I get the following message Windows Setup This installation disc isn't compatible with your version of Windows To upgrade you need the correct installation disc For more information check your computer's system information To install a new copy of Windows restart boot your computer using the installation disc and then select Custom advanced I have no idea what to do now I'm upgrading to the EXACT same OS that the laptop had previously I've tried using Windows Ultimate and Windows Home Premium bit and I get nothing the same stuff Any suggestions As I said I do not have an actual disc and I'm running off of an iso file Help would be much appreciated seeing as how I need this laptop fixed soon Thank you

A:Windows upgrade problems. Windows XP to Windows 7

So this laptop originally shipped with Win 7 Professional 64-bit and that is what the existing Product Key is for?

If so, the next question would be where did you get the ISO? I assume you burned the ISO to DVD?

I would like to know if Windows 10 received through using my Windows 7 Update will be also giving out a product key
to use later if problems arise. I may have to do a clean install at a later date or will I then have to pay for a Windows 10
product key?

I installed a full version of Windows on to a new clean Windows Windows Windows 7 8 Recovery File in hard drive and all seems to be working well except for one very unusual issue I went in to Control Paneland accessed Windows File Recovery in Windows back up just as I did in the past with Windows and made an image of my computer The image was successfully made and Windows Windows 7 File Recovery in Windows 8 put on one of my physically Windows Windows 7 File Recovery in Windows 8 separate secondary drives Drive E Once I made the system image I wanted to test that it could be accessed in the event I needed to use it in the future I restarted Windows with the original Windows install repair disk through my CD DVD Blue ray drive and selected the repair function and was able to go through the steps where it was detected and ready to be installed if needed When I was able to see that the image was recognized and ready to use if ever needed I clicked on Cancel so as to not allow the procedure to start and all shut down as expected I removed the Windows disk from my drive and restarted my computer as normal Here is where the problem starts The system booted up and the blue windows logo displayed as normal and the little white circular motion below the logo started in its circular motion signifying that things are happening The problem was that is all that happened The computer was stuck in a forever startup After several minutes I shut down the computer tried it again and same thing it was stuck in virtual start-up After some thought and a lucky gues because it was the last thing I did I un-plugged drive E which had the system image on it and then restarted the computer again and it started up just fine When I plugged hard drive-E back in to the computer it was again stuck in virtual start-up I then removed drive-E and re-formatted it on a different computer using windows then put it back into the computer using Windows and it worked fine In short when I put a system image on a hard drive in my computer then try to access it the computer becomes frozen in a forever start-up Has anyone else had this problem and or any suggestions or help Thank you Louis

A:Windows Windows 7 File Recovery in Windows 8

Just a guess - the repair modified the BCD to point to the recovery image and your bootup was trying to recover the image.

At an elevated prompt, type BCDEDIT and see if it looks normal.

You can probably look for examples pretty easily in these forums.

A:Installing Windows Vista, Windows ME and Windows XP

Hi,
I'm not sure you will be able to create a triple boot with ME, XP and Vista without reinstalling Vista - and using a recovery CD will probably reinstall Vista on the C drive.
The easiest (and best) way, IMHO, is to install the oldest OS (ME) first - on the C drive. Then install XP on the D drive in a dual boot configuration with ME followed by installing Vista on the E drive to complete the triple boot (but again the recovery CD will most likely mess it up).

In your case the installations of the different Windows versions would have to be performed "backwards" - first Vista, then XP and finally ME - and AFAIK that is impossible.

Installing XP after Vista isn't too complicated - read this. The trouble is you can't install ME after XP or Vista.

If you had two hard drives it would be possible to "fool" the computer - Keep Vista on the first HDD. With the first HDD disconnected you could install ME, then XP on different partitions on the second HDD. After re-connecting HDD #1 you could either use a "boot manager program" or choose which HDD to boot in BIOS.

I was surprised at the last minute after downloading Windows 10 free upgrade, to find out its without Windows Media Center.
I use my USB TV tuner with the media center pack purchased online "everyday". I got over (15) programs recorded with the-
media center, to make it essential for documentation on my hard drive, and to know why I bought a personal computer.
To see Windows 10 "upset" recorded documentation with no-media center, was a (let-down) by Microsoft's programming of the operating system.
I did the "rollback" to Windows 8.1 Pro in a matter of minutes.
Microsoft should consider the (full-value) need, with Windows Media Center added to the operating system.

Quote:




Windows 10 will possibly be the last version of Windows with a version number. After Windows 10, Microsoft will likely continue with updating Windows system components without releasing a full new version of Windows.

A developer evangelist of Microsoft stated that Windows 10 would be ?the last version of Windows?, during Microsoft?s Ignite conference, according to tech website TheVerge.

?Recent comments at Ignite about Windows 10 are reflective of the way Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner, with continuous value for our consumer and business customers?, according to a Microsoft spokesman when asked about the statement by the technology website.

Since I upgraded from WinXP to Win7, I've noticed that C:\Windows files are located in C:\Windows.old\Windows. This happened because, while trying to install Win7, one of my RAM's chips seemed to be broken, stopping the process several times. So, at the end, I throwed it away and I'm with Win7, BUT, with the multiple attempts of install it, the system, apparently, overwrote the OS and, now, I'm using the "old" one.

Does someone have ANY ideas? I could reinstall it, yeah, but I already have some programs and huge stuff so, i prefer to make it as last option.

Since now, I thank you.

A:C:\Windows files are located in C:\Windows.old\Windows

That folder contains your old OS. Once you have everything needed from it you can delete it using Disk Cleanup's Clean Up System Files option. Disk Cleanup - Open and Use - Windows 7 Help Forums

You will have another C:\WIndows folder in the root of C drive for the new Win7 install. Do you see it? It could not be in Windows.old.

A quick note: When I went to install each OS, even that was slow (I.E. the install windows were slow to come up, overall slow) I suspect hard drive failure.... Please help, as I'll be needing this computer for school soon.

I recently performed a system recovery because I was unable to back up to earlier time before we started having computer issues. Anyway I performed a recovery. Stumbled accross this by accident that windows has 3 days before it wall automatically activate. So I clicked activate. It gave me this message header. "The Windows Vista Home Premium product key you typed is invalid for windows activation". There are 3 options. 1 is to Buy a new product key online. 2 is to type a different product key. 3 is to contact Hewlett-Packard Company to resolve this issue. I contacted Hewlett-Packard Company and they had me call Microsoft. Microsoft wants to charge me $100 for something I already own. Very confused. Anyway does anyone have a fix for this. Thank you

Hi
You have two choices:
You may either reinstall using the recovery partition, if you have one.
or
You could look for the key on the computer. It can be anywhere, including the battery compartment, if you have a lappy.
As a last restort you can try to use magic jelly bean, but I have doubts since you reinstalled.

A:Windows 2003 Server installation in Dual Boot on already installed Windows 7 Laptop

Couple of things you can do after installing 2003.

Boot from the W7 dvd select repair my computer and do a startup repair, most of the time this fixes the bootloader for W7, but then 2003 may not boot now. So then you need to install a BCD editor software in W7 to get both of them booting properly.

http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1


If startup repair does not get W7 booting again, there are some commands you can do from the W7 recovery environment to get the job done, (boot from the W7 cd, select repair my computer, then command prompt)

A:Store does not recognize my Administrator User account when attempting to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1

You are not alone. Several have had the same problem with no resolution. I think it has something funny to do with the User Accounts. Making a second account with admin privleges doesn't work. I would try to reinstall the OS from the hidden image and try again. A Refresh like Dell tried will not do the trick, as it retains much of the data from before the Refresh; you need a clean start. Don't do anything witht the Admin Account other than let Windows set it up and set your password. All updates need to be installed before the upgrade will show in the Store. I have upgraded five Win 8 installations and have had zero problems.

Hey guys. I made a post similar to this in windows 2000-xp-2003 forum, but no responses. I recently installed windows 2000 on my moms computer. Since then, every computer is detecting an "internet connection" in the XP Network Connections. WHY? Its slowing the internet down, and Nobody on the network can acces the windows 2000 files. she has no problems doing anything, printing-seeing files- you name it. The XP machins can print to my printer (since its on my computer), but nobody can acces her computer. can you please help me?

Hey all,

Something appears to have infected my computer, but nothing seems to be detecting it.

The active window is constantly losing focus which is very frustrating (it's happening right now in IE as I type).

The volume in IE also appears to be getting reset to zero.

Also, when I'm using fullscreen mode (in WMP etc.) it will consistently exit fullscreen mode.

There appears to be a hidden system message box that I don't see but I know it's there because when I try to use the clipboard to copy the following message is copied to my clipboard: Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed.

I've attached the DDS and Gmer report - is there anything else I can do?

Thanks,

Jamie

I have a broken laptop that refuses to boot. No BIOS screen or anything is displayed when the power button is pressed. I have removed the hard drive from the laptop and put it into a working desktop PC. I started it in safe mode and the computer restarts. I used the F8 key to prevent it from shutting down on errors and received the following Stop error code:
0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

So far I've used a boot cd to run chkdsk on the drive, and I've tried restoring to a previous point.

I do Not have an installation disk for Windows 7.

Any help is appreciated.

A:Windows Updates Fail, Windows Photo Gallery Errors, Ghost Files

Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

CHKDSK C: /R

and hit the Enter key.
You will be told that the drive is locked,
and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, press Enter, and then reboot.

The CHKDSK will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) -
then run the SFC.

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.
Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and upload it to your SkyDrive Public folder (http://skydrive.live.com ) and post a link to it so that I can take a look.

Post a new MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.

A:Infected machine? - pop-ups / Windows Security Alert problem / Windows no disk error

BUMP, please

------
Also, an update since I originally posted this.

I already had Spybot installed prior to the problem, so I loaded Spybot Tea Timer to give me some sort of added protection while waiting.
It nuked numerous attempts by Run32dll.exe to access various dll files in the System32 directory, as well as adding various strings to the Registry.

During this time, the machine was extremely sluggish, but I could still use it to some degree.

But something happened yesterday, and now my machine won't even boot up. :(
I can't boot up in regular mode or in Safe mode.
All I get is the dreaded blue screen with a C000021A error. :(

I'm fortunate enough to have a backup drive that had all my working files, so I could continue my work on another machine.
But I stopped the backup when the problem popped up to avoid infecting any of the files on my backup drive.
So all of the data from the 3 days the virus problem started up is lost to me at the moment.

Please advise.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
If we clean this up like you did when helping me a year ago on another machine,
I'll be sure to donate again, like last time! :)
Thanks!
